He was educated in the public schools and attended the normal of that state, graduating in 1871, and became a teacher. He taught school in Texas for a time, and then returned to Illinois and commenced the study of law, and was admitted to the bar in January, 1873. He still pursued the study of law, taking a course at the University of Michigan and graduating in 1875. He was then elected City Attorney of Urbana, Illinois, and continued the practice there till 1879, when he went to Dakota, where he again took to the work of teaching. Later he returned to his home and continues the practice of law, until appointed Clerk of the District Court of the District of Alaska, and ex-officio secretary and treasurer of said district, by President Arthur, in 1884, where he remained until 1887, when he went to Los Angeles County, California. He came to Portland in 1888, when he immediately commenced the practice of law, and is today one of the city’s well-known attorneys. Mr. Lewis has always been an earnest, active Republican, and the party always knows just where he stands.

LOCKWOOD, C. M., Chief Clerk of the Secretary of State, was born at The Dalles, Oregon, June 26, 1870, and has lived at or near Salem since 1876. For thirteen years he was manager of the Postal Telegraph office at Salem, and is now owner of the Lockwood messenger system and interested in the bicycle trade.

LOGAN, HON. DAVID, deceased, was one of the founders and leaders of the Republican party in Oregon. He was a son of Judge Logan, partner and intimate friend of Abraham Lincoln. Coming to Oregon in early territorial days, he soon took high rank at the bar and as an orator. In 1859 he ran for congress on the Republican ticket, and was defeated, but in 1860 he again ran, and was, the first Republican to represent the state of Oregon in congress. He was again the Republican candidate in 1868.

Later he resigned and began the practice of his profession in Sale, Oregon. In 1878 the Republicans of Marion County elected him to the State Senate, and in 1880 he was elected a Judge of the Supreme Couth, and became Chief Justice. He was re-elected in 1882 and in 1888, and in 1895 was inaugurated Governor of the state, to which office he was elected before his term as judge fully expired. Under him Oregon began to enjoy the first Republican administration of his office justifies the confidence that was placed in him by the people.

In 1883 he was appointed Fire Commissioner of Portland, and held that position for nine years.

LOVELL, FRANK K., auditing clerk in the office of the Secretary of State, is a native Oregonian and an earnest Republican. He occupied the same position under Secretary McBride, and by his promptness, accuracy, faithfulness and courtesy, has won the good will of the hundreds all over the states who have come in official contact with him.
