The idea that the congressional
ght in Hock Island county would re
solve itself into a contest between the
cities of Rock Island and Moline,
which for a time has been prevalent,
will probably have to be relegated to
the realms of both the pleasant dreams
and the nightmares. For there are In
dications of a general ruixup through
out th entire county. .

The first in the ring was Frank G.
Allen of Moline and the next was
Charles J. Starie of Hock Island, and
as the field seemed to be occupied ex-j
clusively by both these two. the in Mu j
erjee and oft times the prophecy was
that the result would be a light between
the two cities and a bid by each for the
support of the county. But all of this
time there has been an clement of;
slrength that has been identified with
neither, and with which neither has
thus far been able to make his peace.
These people are most particularly
Known in Moline as the Deere faction
and iu Ruck Island as the anti Yates

! Negotiations have been pending be
tween the different elements in the
hope that some agreement satisfactory
to ail might be reached, but up to date
all set ins to have been for naught. The
word was passed out a day or two ago
from the Allen camp in Moline. and
probably in good faith, that at a con

Portland, Juno 23. If I were living
iu the east this yedV and had friends
who contemplated attending the Port
land fair, I should give them one little
piece of advice: For men take a
vest along; don't expect "to lie comfort
able all day and evening iu a two-piece
suit. For women carry a wrap, and
don't wear network waists.
Now this advice is not at all im
pertinent; it is a simple piece of fath-
trly Hdmonition. If you imagine that
the Portland climate is a hot one yoi:
sadly mistaken. The only thing that
makes an easterner homesick when in
in Portland is the summer weather.
He sometimes longs for the sweltering
heat of New York, or of St. Louis, or
New Orleans such as he has been ac
customed to all his life in summer
lime just to remind him of home. He
wants to take off his coat and vest,
it-move his collar, open the neckband
of his shirt, and sit out where he can
sweat like a stoker in a gas plant fur
nace and feel at home. When in Port
land these June days he finds the
weather so cool that he usually wears
a light top ceat if he goes' out early
in the morning or stays oiit late at
night; he sleeps under double blank
ets every night during the summer,
and never gets any real sweltering
even in the middle of the day unless
he chooses to go down in the stoke
hole of some ocean vessel lying in Port
land's splendid harbor.

Of course this makes the native and
lifelong resident of a hot climate very
homesick. A man I met the other day
had just received a letter from his
folks, who were living in an upstairs
hat in the fashionable West End of St.
I ouis. They wrote that the weather
was so stilling that they found it nec
t s.sary to remove to a downstairs Hat.
For more than two weeks the Portland
temperature, at the warmest part of
the day, had not exceeded SI degrees.
.nd most of the time it had been from
ir to 2U degrees below that figure.
The St. Iouis man wrote for his folks
to come out to Portland, the peerless
People to the eastward, who are
.ooking for some watering place where
they can cool off, or a mountain resort,
where enlivening breezes are the rule,
should consider Portland's claims this
s-eason. Portland is both a watering
place and a mountain resort, with a

Columbia or by rail along the banks
of lhat mighty and picturesque stream.
Several seashore resorts near to the
mouth of the Columbia, where surf

r.ay be had. draw many citiz ns and
tourists to Portland. It is a ride of but
four or five hours from this city to
the ocean, passing enroute some of the
most wonderful scenery to be found
on the map. When you get to the Pa
cific you are but a few miles from the
t.!te of old Fort Clatsop, where Lewis
ond Clark spent the memorable winter
of lStiy-C. and you pass through As
toria, the oldest town on the north

Astor, the New York fur trader whose
descendants still own more or less of
the real estate in New York City.

Beach, on the Washington shore, is .
another nearby resort which is highly
popular. Here also are cottages for'

But it is not necessary for the tour-j
ist to go to the seashore to cool off at j
any time during the summer, Portland l
being cool enough for all practical pur- j
poses. There is no really hot month
here. Ever since the exiositiou open-j

delightfully cool. People who go out '

the seaside places along the Oregon
and Washington beaches will satisfy
your soul. One of the favorite coast
resorts for Portland people is Seaside,
where there are many cosy little cot
tages. The rental of these cottages,
completely furnished, is surprisingly
low much lower than the rates charg
ed for biroilar accommodations at
Ixjng Branch. Asbury Park. Atlantic
City and other Atlantic coast resorts.
Many families from afar. have taken
advantage of this opportunity and
have rented cottages at Seaside for
the exposition season; they run up to
Portland every now and then, see the

city is a large C. A. K. encampment,
open ;H1 the season, for the use of
Grand Army men and their families.
The veterans are expected to furni.-h
their (wn sleeping tents, but they have
the use of the dining tent and the rest

welcomed by their cojnrad-.s of the
Oregon G. A. II. department.
But it is not necessary for a family
to camp out; that Is simply a free
choice for those who like camp life.
