By reason of tho nbsolutoly nlr-tlght construction of tho stove, whioh gives a perfect control ovor tho nlr

The saving of this gns nearly doubles tho boat, nnd nt tho same time makes ourstove tho only alonn and hygonle

been given a lift, oven to hitching up

made a good candidate in tho timo of
pnrty need in Crook county, but was
very poorly' equipped to contend with
tho diamond; cut-dinmond ways of n
strenuous sosston of tho Oregon legis
lature. Lyle was not disposed to sup

out of tho Wlllnmetto dining room

Senator Dolph in tho lobby of tho
hotol coming right townrds them, nnd
woro propnrcd to say to him that it
was all ovor, and thoy considered
him ns good ns olected nnd bollcve
in tho good old rulo of standing by
tho oxprosscd will of tho majority,
nnd ronlly wnnted to eongrntulno tho
Senator on whnt wns then supposed to
ho his grontost personal viotory after

What tho Senator did or sold, as ho Is
now gono from this lifo. matters not,
but it wns tho wny ho said or did it
that hurt.
All Off With Lyle.
Lyle's fnco grew rod ns n beet, nnd
tho slight Impediment in his speech
choked his utterance, and he acted as
if ho had been hit with a hammer.
Tho Senator pased by on the other
sldo of tho room nnd Lyle insisted on
taking a trip to the bar bofore wtjlng
ft word. Then ho exprossod himself in
a flow of politienl jargon rich with
tho vocabulary of bunohgrass, and
.-r.rf. hn would 800 the Senator in tho
'tropical and infernal reglona beforo
ho would vote for mm, nnci me owwu
felt tho samo way after what had
hnpponed. Now it was all wrong on
nil sidos ns wo look nt it over tho
vista of ton years or more, but there
was ft fatal laok of cordiality in tho
Senator's manner nt the psychological
momont, coming or top of tho high
handed methods of the arrogant ma
ehlno, at the head of whieh were somo
of tho strongest men in the stato.
After taking about threo Augers of
bourbonv Lyle swore he wanted to see
somo of tho anti-Dolph boys, nnd it
soon developed that none of them hod
been conelllated by tho Dolph man
agcrs. There was a conferenco in
tho back room of Tho Capltnl Journal
office, nnd one after another of the 30
was rounded up and put on bis mettle
for a fight. Lyle's particular duty
was to handle the Eastern Oregon
men, nnd he was littlo suspected of
taking tho part he did in the organi
zation of tho holdup. The jolly, fat,
easygoing, roly-poly kind of big over
grown boy that he was, saying very
little, nnd very close-moutbed, and
playing the part of a greenhorn very
adroitly, made it possible for him to
bring information into the camp of
tbo antis that no one else could got
hold of. Ho pursued the tactics he
adopted to the finish, of playing the
guileless drinking country member,

AVnshlngton, nnd last of nil, but not
least, J. H. Seott of Tangent. About
tho seeoml or third day the Dolph
mnnngors began to woaken one of our
men. Fortunately one of the Dolph
mombers was alwent, but Seott of
Linn was at home sick, and a special
cngino hud to bo sent for him. It
cost tho combination a dollar a milo
to get Seott, Including the run from
Portland to Salem and return. Ho
could not be got into the House of
I.opresentatives until about 1.30,whllo
tho roll-enll began at 12 o'cloek. It
was figured that the engino bearing
Seott would return from Tangent by
ono o'olook, and four speakers were
assigned to ocoupy the time until tljo

could bo brought in on a strotchor.
