A now investigation is progressing in

sum, wero mailed to tho euro of Mayor

tlon. President Roosevelt is t lie mov
ing spirit, behind tho inquiry, and ho
declares tlutt no man guilty of diverting
tho roliof funds shall escape justice.
Tho cases come within tho jurisdic
tion of tho Federal authorities because
of the interstate chumctor of the postal

Northern Pacific and Great Northern
Railroads Tied Up Three
Uvea Are Lost.
Senttlo, Nov. 15. Floods in tho
White, Stuck nnd Green rivers, which
began Tuesday night, hnvo swept nwny
miles of railroad trackage, inundated
all the valley towns, rendered hundreds
of farmers homeless and cost thrco lives
up to date. Until tho Western Union
last night succeeded in getting a wiro

off from tho outsido world by either
railroad or telegraph lines. The tele
phone company kept up two lines, but

It will bo two weeks beforo tho

FOR RIVERS AND HARBORS.
Great National Agitation to Improve
A national congress of American com
mercial bodies interested in tho devel
opment of internal waterways and har
bor improvements will meet in Wash
ington on tho sixtlt and seventh of De
cember. Oregon will bo represented
by a delegation from the Portland
chamber of commerce.
Tho purpnso of tho congress is main
ly to prevail upon tho United States
authorities to pass a measuro calling
for an appropriation of fifty millions
annually for river and harbor improve
ment. Kveu should such n xmensuro
pass it would still be but a fraction of
what other great nations are expending
annually Uon their waterways. Tho
movement is a national expression of
tho knowledge that water competition
is tho ono great clicapener of railroad
freight rates railways that compete
with rivers lor tralllo do not pay ex
travagant dividends upon watered stock.
In those sections of tho country
wherein the railroads are compelled to
carry freight in competition with river
craft tho rates aro from- oiio-thlnl to
oiio-sixth of those ruling where water
competition is not a factor. It is told
of a cotton section In Texas Unit tho
vnnalizing of a very insiguitienntstream
so as to be available for flat bottomed
canal boats, lowered tho freight rates
so radically as to mako it saving to a
small community of three million dol
lars annually. As a matter of fact the
canalized stream carried but a small
percentage of tho tralllo ujion which
this largo saving was effected, hut the
fact that tho stream was available for
tralllo compelled tho railways to meet
tho water competition.
Tho Rivers and Harbors congress
will discuss the improvement of the
Oregon and Washington waterways and
the removal of obstructing bars at the
entrances of tho harbors and will seek
to impress upon the congress of the na
tion tho importance of theso improve
ments to tho farming and mercantile

THE REASON WHY
Bourne Should Not
Be Elected U.
The New Age haa said before and It
now says again that It doea not be
lieve that the next legislature will
elect J. Bourne, Jr., to the United
Statee aenate. It haa been aald that
our opposition to Mr. Bourne la In-
aplred by prejudice, and that we can
give no good reason for opposing him
alnce he waa regularly named by tha
republican votora for the office.
We opposed Mr. Bourne during tha
primaries for the reason that we knew
him to be unfit for the high office to
which he aspired.
First That he la not a loyal and
Second That he la a traitor anal
Third That he could not be depend
ed upon to aupport Roosevelt.
If he had been a loyal and coneUtent
republican he would not have deserted
hla party In the hour of Ita dire dis
tress, when the blight of Dryanlsm and
popullem overahadowed the country In
1906. Out as a true and loyal repub
lican would have put self aside and
rendered whatever service he could
for hla party and hla republican
friends. If Bourne'a will had prevailed
and Bryan had been elected who can
aay that there would have been today
a atrong, invincible republican party
In Oregon to honor him for hla perfidy,
The leglalatlve aeaslon of 1893 waa
the most spectacular In the hlatory of
Oregon and the King Pin of that' ses
sion waa J. Bourne Jr., whostt mal
odorous record la even yet a stench' Iri
the nostrils of decent people. With a
goodly supply of money and other cor
rupting Influences the trick of thwart
ing the will of the people and debauch
ing the honor of the citizenry waa the
special mission of this political monte
bank, who, now, ten short years after
ward, has the brazen affrontery to seek
this high and honorable position at
tho hands of the party, whoae murder
he conspired to bring about.
In the light of tho past record of
Mr. Bourne, who Is so unsuspecting aa
to trust him In the future? Doea any
one who knows him, save his hired
henchmen, think for a minute that ha
can be depended upon to stand up for
republican principles and policies In
the United States aenate, and to up
hold the handa of life-long, true and
tried republican leadera In that body,
and to "stand pat" with the party's
matchless leader, mose profound
stateman, patriot and humanitarian
since the daya of Lincoln Theodora
