I'uro T n party who hold official in- tegrity and efficiency above mere partisan considerations. His nom- ination has also been endorsed by the Populists and Silver Republi- cans, and there was a vry strong senti- ment in the regular Republican con- vention in favor of similar action. Mr. Beamer is constitutionally and by education a Democrat, not a political martinet, or what is sometimes styled a but a Democrat of liberal, enlarged and conservative views on questions of economy a'nd nohcy. It these elements of strength and qualities of leadership that have given him an extraordinary personal follow- ing and enabled him to score a victory where othera otherwise equally as well equipped would probably have met with defeat. In prese-itiat; his name Kir a third time to thu people of this district asking hie election to Rn office, the duties of which he haa discharged with snr-b signal ability, his friends are not influenced by any feeling that party rua not recognized bis services or rewarded him as he is en- titled. Hf fully appreciates the hiich and responsible honors that h'ave been confc-rred np >ii iiim. Hm candidat v is not in the of an ambitious man peekina :arl er honors. It is an obedi- ent response to the imperative demand of an earneac and determined runEtitu- ency who appreciated Ihe ViXluo ot services ai.d fvho think they are entitled to them. Then- is man in the State whose prospects political advancement ore more promising. Another term of his present office can add nothing to the reputation he bus already pained, or the lauiels ot victory with which lie is already crowned. Rut when hi? crr- stituency calls ne feels it a duty to obey. The exigencies of the bitutuion de- mand cool, courageous and self-pos- suased leadership, and he possesses these qualities in an eminent degree. They also demand that, our candidates shall he men of abilitv, high character and unimpeachable integntv, and measured by any or all of thepe stand- ards he fully meets the Jeffersonian re- quirements. One of the highest tributes to per- sonal worth and offie al integrity is found in the fact that in a large district embracing twenty-two populous and prosperous counties, the demand for his re-election waa so imperative aa amount to a command, and not a voice haa been raised in protest againet the breaking down of a tradition time- honored and aa old aq the Democratic party. Mr. Beamer is a m.in of exceptionally rare ability. His conspicuous arid dis- tinguished traits ot character, hia pre- eminent talents-, hit powers of discrimination, his 1-u-h of honor, hia conrtciem lous regard (or duty, hie personal virtue" art- woithirr-if a higher eulogy than v, are ctipable ol paying to them. lie n conservative in epeech, wise in council, atateemanliko in his deduc- patriotic in inspiration, honest in impulse and fearless in meeting every responsibility and discharging every trust reposed in him. His perceptions are keen, attainments t-cholarly, hip meihodasystematic, hie knowl- edge ot the duties of the office he now holds and to which he will be re-elected is thorough, and there is no leasun why every taxpayer who has voted Jor bun heretofore should not do so again. However, defeat sometimes as the result of over-confidence. Let every uan who believes in an equitable as- eeesnient do his duty arid there need be no doubt as to tbe result. R it hard H. Bettmer haa lived UHIMIM all hid life in California, having hcei. lee's than four yeaiB of when tin father and mother brought him by ox team across the plains from his nativt State of Missouri. The family settled on a farm adjoining the city of Wood- land, where Mr. Beatner's mother still reeidee. Young Btacaer was reared aa a farme i attending the public school and Hes- perian Colleite. He afterwards took r> course of one'and one-half years at the Keritu1 ky University, at Lexington. He always evinced much interest in Democratic politics, and in 1872 made the race on that ticket for county audi- tor. He was easily elected and served one term acceptably At the next elec- tion he was chosen as county assessor. In 1834 he was a successful candidate for sheriff and tax-collector. He was- never an aspirant for re-election to an} county office. When the Democratic State conven- tion met in 1890, the delegates repre- senting the counties comprising thi Third equalization district nommatec him for member of the State board oi equalization on what was thought to bt a forlo'rh hope, many of the twenty-twt counties in the district being largely Re- Mr. Beamer, however, wa? elected br a very comfortable margin, and was the o.ily Democratic candidate on the ticket who pulled through. He succeeded himself in 1894 by t laisrer vote. The returns showred that, in Yolo county, which i? usually from 125 to 150 Democratic, Mr. Bnamer Se- cured a majority of out of a total vnte of in Srflano, normally Re- publican by 400, his tnaj >rity was and in Humboldk, which is counted Republican by at least 700, he had a of over 500. In ten othet counties of the district h's vote WHS fiom 50 to 200 ahead of his ticket. Mr. Heamer's constituency ia chiefly an agricultural one, and he has earned a poonlarity with those he repreaent- which indicate? rhat they are satisfies with the way their interests have beec eub.-erved. Mr. Beamer's friends are prepffed to give him the same enthusiastic support have heretofore, and thev are not backward in asserting ttiat he will bt re-elected. Contest in a Divorce Case- Several daya ago Mrs. Mary R. Pat- terson, of Davisville, began an action for divorce against her husband, Dame) (J. Patterson, upon the grounds of crnetty atid drunkenness. It is evident chat Mi. Patterson intends to contest ihe matter, because he filed in Uie Superior Court a demurrer to the oompla'nt of his wife, alleging that the allegations eel forth therein do not constitute extreme cruelty nor drunkenness, and that the case should he dismissed. C. VV. Thomas is attor- ney for Mr. Patterson. The Hunters Are Careless. A number of farmers residing within a radius of five milos of Woodland arc complaining about the carelessness of bun'ters in shooting in fields wher'i stock IP running loose.

Higginbottoin and Vauehu is an ,10- eident insurance agent, who has re- bided in Knights Landing about out year. Vaughn went into the hotel Friilax night with the intention of occupying a room which beionee to a friend. Dougherty enquired of the landlord if it was all right. Receiving a negative reply ha called at the room on the second floor and directed Vaughn to vacate, ihe latter demurred. Aftei some words Dougherty attempted to eject Vaughn by force. Orvct- outside of the door a rough- and-tumble scuffle took place on the stairway, in tbe course of Vaughn pulled out a pocket knife ami cut Dougherty in the right side. Thi latter caught the blade of the knile n an attempt to save himself, and as a re unit his hand was also badly cut. Tbi struggle did not end until Doug'ieru threw Vaughn out into the street sheriff Griffin, who was in town, wat summoned, and he pur Vaughn undei arreet. A physician examined Uougharty't wounds and ascertained that they art not necessarily ot a serious character Fhe cut in the aide is the most dangei 'jus, but it is only a fleah wound, th< knife not haying penetrated to the cav- ity of the stomach. The gash, how- ever, is ugly and painful. When Vaughn was united Sheril1 Griffin searched him, but failed to fin< ihe knife with which the cutting wa lone. A small knife was found on hi: it was enclosed in a case am no evidence of having beer used in the fight. It is believed tha Vaughn threw the knife into the river Assistant Dihtrict Attorney Andereni name over from Woodland to investi- gate ttie matter this morning. Vaughn was given a hearing in tin justice court. He is noiv in the count} jail and the preliminary examinatioi will take place October 8th. OPEN SEASON- Not Much to Tempt Hunters to Go Afield. The shooting season opened morning. Quite a number of local iports left Friday evening in search of i' favorable locality where game might bf found this morning. None of then Invve returned yet atid we are unable t< sav what lock they have had. The general opinion it, however, that there will not be much to tempt sportsmen to go afield until tlu- set it. The ponds where in otliei ueasons ducke were plentiful by the 1st of October art- now dry and bare, and where there it no watei there are no ducks. The same may be said ad to the ijuail.
