"HIGH UP IN HIS PROFESSION. Sidney Born Man Law Partner of
Ex-President's Son".-- It is hardly likely that anyone in Sidney
will remember Trafton M. Dye, born in Sidney January 11, 1886,
because he was only six months old when he left here, consequently
his acquaintance could not have been extensive. But there are plenty
of old timers who will readily recall his parents, Prof. and Mrs.
Charles H. Dye, at that long-gone date residents of Sidney, Prof.
Dye being superintendent of the local public schools.
Now comes a story from Oregon City from the boy's mother, Eva
Emery Dye, now a noted writer, author of "McLoughlin and Old
Oregon," "The Conquest" and a few other works of merit. Mrs. Dye
tells friends there that her son has become a law partner of James
R. Garfield, son of ex-President Garfield, with offices established
in Cleveland, Ohio.
The elder Mr. Dye after leaving this section took to the law
and became a prominent figure in the west. Now the son comes to the
fore and promises to even eclipse the father's career.
