A most successful public reception was tendered William Hanley of Burns, progressive nominee for United States senator, at the Medford Hotel Tuesday evening by the Ladies' Hanley club, and the event signalized the entrance of Jackson County women into the realm of practical politics. Mr. Hanley, a native son of Jackson County, was welcomed home and introduced in a few well-chosen words by Colonel Sargent, and responded in a brief speech stating why a man in sympathy with the development of the state and the utilization of its resources should be sent to Washington. His address was well received, after which many old friends seized the opportunity to shake hands with the candidate.
