Richard W. Carey and His Qualifications
for That Position.
In 18411 tho subject, or this sketch
came to Marlon county with his peo
ple from Missouri whpn he was a mere
child and experienced a hard trip
across tho plains. The family Is
-known as one of tho foremost among
tho pioneers In -this section. Mr.
Carey's father followed farming and
stock-raising after his settlement hero
and was very successful. He was
also a liberal supporter of "WlllUmctto
university from Its curliest days. Mr
Caroy hlim-clf had tho advantage of
an education In that institution,
from the time of Father Wilbur down
to tho day of President Gatch. Later
ho took a courso at a Portland busi
ness college, thus amply qualifying
111 in for an active business life. After
his schooling was llnlslied Mr. Curoy
also followed farming in tho "Waldo
hills, ncarMaclcay, of which town he
was practically the founder, having
donated ten nures of laud for the
townslte nnd depot grounds. Ho was
known there ns one of their most en
terprising men. Ho paid great atten
tion to stock raising, and was tho
first Importer of Aberdeen-Angus
cattle "West of tlo Rockies. Ho
-made soveral trlpSiast, alone and
with his family, for tho purchase ami
Imporatlon of stock. Ho also Intro
duced hero Jersoy cattle, Berkshire
hogs, Morluo, Shropshire and Cots
wold sheep, and probably did as much
as any man now living to Improve
the farming class In his section. He
was an exhibitor at tho first state
fair held in Oregon aud has bcon a
successful competitor for premiums
ever since. Although Mr. Caroy has
been a llfo long Republican and an
active worker .for tho party, ho has
never asked for any public position.
His friends are now urging him to be
come a candldato for tho office of
county treasurer, for which ho Is well
fitted by education and business train
ing. Mr. Carey's first vote was cast for
Abraham Lincoln, on his second term,
and ho has voted for overy Republican
president since. Three years ago Mr.
Carey 'retired from his farm and
moved Into Salem. Ho built n fine
residence on East State street, and
has become one of oupworthlcst citi
zens. Mr. Carey has modestly declined
to permit the use of his nauio until
very recently; ho lias been prevailed
upon to become a candidate In the
fullest sense of the word. Delegates
attending tho county convention can
well atTord to-post themselves regard
ing Mr. Carey and his record, and If
ho should bo nominated It Is abso
lutely safe to say that no man sup
porting him will ever be disappointed
In the outcome.

morning to hold up thn Southern
Pacific overland nrfn between Goshen
and the Tagcs Witch, but which
failed on account of one of the would
be robbers going back on tho scheme,
and Informing the officers ortho In

his partner did not know this, aud
went ahead and stopped tho train on
which thero wore soveral officers.
Shcrlil Earl Daggett. and Constable
Reed, of Reedly, were on tho cngluo
und thoy opened lire upon the robber
as8oon as ho camo Into sight. Ho
came over tho back of tho tender as
the train was running at full speed.
Ho returned tho tiro, one bullet strik
ing Daggett and piercing tlio pottrul
cavity, making a ftcrlous wound.
Reed was hit In tho shoulder, but not
seriously hurt. Daggett tired a doublo
charge from a shotgun full In tho
robber's face, and when the train
arrived here a large quantity of blood
was found on the tender.

was foud at the scene of tho hold-up.

marred when a member of tho church

The Effect of Krce Wool la Texas.
Tho results of tho suicidal policy or
frco wool produce tho best offect when
applied rlglit at homo. The figures
used are from tho assessor's roll, and
aro approximately correct.
The wool clip of Lampasas County,
Toxus, for 1802 was tho lust ono un
alTeotcd by tho proposed Turriff
changes. In that year tho wool
growers of tho county marketed, in
round numbers, 181,422 poundsof wool,
averaging say 18 cents a pound, bring
lug them $32,055. 00. Tho next clip of
1803 hud Increased to 222,30(1 peunds:
but, on account or tho certainty or
"freo wool," tho averugo price was
only 10 cents, thus netting tho far
mers but $22,230.00.
It Is but fair to stato that If tho
wool had been sold early In tho season
It would havo brought a better prlco,
but tho mass of wool growers, not
realizing that tho curly dccllno was
but a beginning, concluded to hold
until fall, and thon, as prices seem to
bo getting worse, It was sold at the
abovo avorogo.
It will bo seen that, although the
clip of 1803 exceeded that of 1802 by
40,074 pounds, It brought $10,410.3(1
less than that or 1802. The discourag
ing prospects or 1891 Induced a num
ber of wool growers to reduce their
Hocks; so much so that tho clip for
1801 amounted to but 150,102 pounds,
which, at tho average market prlco of
8 cents, only brougt $12,008.10.
If tho actual loss to the wool grow
ers of Lampasas county for tho two
years or 1803 and 1801 amounts to $20,
523.00, one can readily see that tho
total for tlio statu of Texas will count
up Into tho millions. And this Is only
for two years. Wc must roinombcr
that the loss continues on until a
tar I IT law In enacted to correct tho
evil of the freo trade policy that tho
Domocratlo party directly leveled
against American farmors.
Tho tllsustroiis effects of the'so losses
aro wldcsprcadlng. One of the neigh
bors or one our largest sheopowncrs,
hlmsoir not a wool grower, has told us
that he had been accustomed to sell
his neighbor, for feeding his sheep,
over $500 worth of grain and forage;
but since tho loss lu wosl, his salo or
feed hud been reduced to less than
$100 From a born and educated
"Free-Trailer," this llttlo experience
of losing tho sales on which most or
his living dopcuded has, within the
spuco or a year, mado a strong "Pro
tectionist." He hus learned Ills' "ob
ject lesson."
