Silem, Or.,' Die. 13. John M.
Gafin was appointed United States
senator to succeed the late John H.
Mitchell ;Governor Chamberlain an
nounced the appointment this morn
ing at 10 o'clock.
In making the. selection, Gover
nor Chamberlain went carefully ov
er the indorsements that had been
submitted to bim by friends of sev
eral1 other candidates, many of
whom received flattering report.
"What attitude will you take re
garding the land fraud cases, Mr.
Gearin?" was one of the first ques
tions.- - .
"J am lully in accord with the
president in his efforts : to suppress
fraudulent conversion of the public
domain' came the quick response.
l am also fully in accord with
the president in his effort to control
the Die, corporations, i and bring
their operations within the pale, of
the law. ; I believe he:, should , be
aided in stopping those rebates and
whatever excesses have grown up
in the incomparable development
ot resources and transportation fa
cillties. His views on these subjects
are good, sound democratic doctrine.
Because a republican president aids
in carrying ont democratic princi
ples h no reason why democratic
'championship of them should not

John M. Gearin is thoroughly
identified with Oregon. He Was
born August 15, 1851, while the
family neared the territory. Where
the old immigrant trail crossed the
Umatilla, at a point now known as
Willow Springs, with the bleakness
of a parched plain as his first vista
and the alkali duet in the air that
first reached his nostrils, his life be
gan. The family was delayed brief
ly there and soon reached Champo-
eg, taking a donation land claim
on the banks of the Willamette, in
Marlon county. Two brothers grew
to manhood. One, named Hugh,
has never left the homestead, but
yet cultivates the Gearin farm which
the ancestor acquired under the ear
liest laws of Oregon territory. John
M. was a Btudeut not a farmer. He
attended St. Mary's college, San'
Francisco, in 186.-;, staying there
for four years. Notre Dame univers
ity, Indiana, was the next step. He
graduated. in 1871.
In January, 1872, a slender young
man entered the law office of Mitch
ell and D ilph in Portland to wres
tle with Blackstone. Two years la
ter he was admitted to the Oregon
bar. Thirty-three years later this
same person succeeded the senior
member of the law firm in the Unit
ed States senate. -
"It is rather sad, these -changes
in time. - I remember when I en.
tered that law office and began my
"My early life, in fact all my life
has been quiet and uneventful,"
modestly insisted the new senator
this morning. "I have been in pub
lio to some extenf, but hot in any
large measure. My first office was
as a member of the Oregon legisla
ture, received in i874. They elect
ed me city attorney in 1875, district
attorney in I884, and I was defeat
ed for congress in 1888., My op
ponent in that contest waB Binger
Hermann now in congress."
"As the accredited representative
of this state for the interim, 1 real
ize mat 1 have oeen chosen to ao
its work, for that period; until anoth
er senator may be chosen .- in the
regular, order -of things, t j recog
nize the fact that my . indorsements
came from every class, especially
among the business men, and in
my work I shall endeavor to serve
all. I will utilize my time for the
very bests interests of Oregon."
Elkton, Ky., Deo. 12. The to
bacco factory here owned by Mrs.
M. H. Penyck and operated for the
tobacco trust by the American Snuff
Company as blown up by dyna
mite early today. There. waB no
loss of life, but the damage to the
factory was complete. There was
no insurance on the plant, as the
insurance company had only a few
days ago canceled the policy, owing
to the excitement occasioned in this
locality by the tactics of some of the
members of the Cark Tobacco-Grow
ers Association. Several houses in
the vicinity were damaged, as were
the depot and four or five passen
ger coaches standing on the siding.
Boston, Dec. 12. The democrats
were victorious in Boston today,
electing ex-Congressman John F.
i itzeerald mayor over three other
candidates. Fitzgearld's plurality
over his nearest competitor, Louis
A: Frothingham, republican speak
er of the Massachusetts bouse of
representatives, was 8330.

cession of carriages started for Riv

ance with the ritualistic procedure
