"This is the end of Roosevelt politi

the H*meys, Johnsons and the Forts.
"I have been disgusted with much of
the anarchistic talk I have heard in
many of tiic Roosevelt caucuses; it is
un patriotic and un-American."

Orof ino Electric Company
A deal was consummated here this week which we think
means much to Orofino and the surrounding country. K. G.
Osterhant, owner of the Orofino Electric Company, whose hold
ings include the present light and power plant, the saw mill, and
various water rights in this vicinity sold to the Welch interests
of Portland, his entire holdings. The new company taking
the plant Monday. C. F. Cunningham, manager for the Welch
interests in the state, and who has made two trips here to perfect
the deal, represented the company. In speaking of the deal Mr.
Cunningham said his company was satisfied with the future of
Orofino and felt like they were making a good investment,
company will lake immediate steps to improve the service and
will first install a heavier line between the power station and
the town, and then take up the matter of developing the high
line power right which calls for a dam at the falls, on the Billie
Bennell place, five miles above town on Orofino creek. The
present plant has a developed power of 50U horse and with the
completion of the high line ditch, 300 additional horsepower will
be added. The holding company will be known as the Lewis
County Electric Company. The Lewis County Electric company
owns plants at Nez Perce, Kamiah, and Orofino and now has
in process of construction a power plant on the Salmon river,
35 miles east of Nez Perce, capable of developing 125,000 horse
power. The Welch interests, of Portland, Oregon own 31 elec
tric plants and railroads in the northwest,
states that it is the intention of his company to be prepared for
all future development in this section, and to that end, reserve
power will always be on hand for any emergency,
ningham will leave Wednesday for Portland, but will return
here Saturday to superintend the starting of improvements to
the present service. Mr. Osterhant, who retires from the own
ership of the Electric company states that he will still be
dent of Orofino, having retained his present property on John
son creek. The purchase price was $35,500.
Democrats War at Baltimore
The national democratic party has now been in
session three days. The first fight of the convention,
over the Parker chairmanship resulted in the defeat of
the progressives led by Bryan by a vote of 579 to 507.
This was considered aClark yictory and a forerunner
of his nomination. The contest m North Dakota where
10 votes were contested by Wilson resulted in the de
feat of the Clark forces. The significant feature of the
voting was the shifting of New York's 90 votes from
Clark to Wilson, which may mean the starting of
stampede to Wilson. The convention adjourned to
meet at eight o'clock tonight at which time the nomin
ating speeches are scheduled to be made.

Death of Mrs. Ellen E. L. Givens.
This community was shocked Wed
nesday morning by the receipt of a
telegram from Boise announcing the
death of Mrs. Filon Givens at that point
from an attack of acute appendicitis.
Mrs. Givens left Orofino last week to
attend a meeting of the State Federa
tion of Women's clubs of which she
an active member and the
ment of her death was the first intima
tion her friends had of her illness. Al
ways of delicate health, her constitu
tion seems not to have been able to
stand the strain of a severe sickness
and a life full of love and friendship for
all humanity has paid the price of living
and gone to join the innumerable cara
van which moves to that mysterious
realm where each shall take his cham
ber in the silent halls of death,
the writer's good fortune to have
joyed her friendship, to have conversed
with her many times on the manifold
destinies of life, and to have been able
to protit largely by her broad reasoning
and liberal views on the present and
her high hopes for the future,
stant reader and great student of all
that affects modern civilization and the
human race, she strove always to do
the thing practical that best would
serve the end.
along the lines of daily conduct mapped
out by her can best be attested by the
universal love and esteem with which
her friends regarded her in life and by
their great sorrow at her untimely
death. A sorrow that to all who knew
her intimately will be brightened by
the thought of high hopes of a future
existence, where somewhere, somehow,
we shall live again.

And look beyond the earth.
