THE EASY REMEDY
The oretronian is constantly
accusing Demecrats of the crime
of perjury in registering as Re
publicans in 1908, in order to
nominate for Senator a man they
could beat at the polls, and the
facts seem to bear out that
paper's contention. It is no new
trick, but was repeatedly used
under the old primary system in
the citv of Portland whenever
the two factions struggled for su
premacy in State and County-
conventions. The evil is admitted
. but we are unable to see that the
t suffgrsstire assembly provides any
nr.neir. On the contrary, k wiU
only make a br.d matter worse,
.for the inharmony heretofore
.; existing will be aggravated by
1 the struggle for the nominations
ti assembly and whoerer
wins out there will be bitterly
opposed in the direct primary by
those reposed to the assembly.
and, if nominated, will be fought
at the polls by many Republicans.
There is only one remedy for
Democratic interference with the
Republican primaries and that is
for Republicans to vote for th
Republican nominees. Had the
Oregonian and the assembly
politicians adopted this remedy
they would have taken away the
motive for interference. But
they held that a plurality nom
inee was not entitled to the sup
port of the party, and this
doctrine is likely to vex them in
the coming campaign.
HIS SHORT CAREER
Boy Confesses That He Stole
BillT MeriaritT. aired 18, is in the
County Jail charged with atealing seven
hoiaea aud a buggy from persona living
in St TTaiena nd vicinitr. He ar
rested in Portland Sunday afternoon and
brought to Pt. Helens Monday. He ad
mits all the charges against hint and in-
Load io relr uaoa the mercy of the
court for a teatence to the Reform
School until the age of 21. Bill is one of
the many youths who hare been allured
by the charms of" easy money. In the
tmat he has been employed as a hotel
clerk in Missouri and Eastern cities and
carries letters recommending him strong
ly for bit industry and honesty. As a
boy he was a pupil of Kemper Military
School, of Kirksville, Mo., and hat a
diploma, showing that he graduated
with honor from that institution. He
held the amateur championship of
Missouri as a boxer, aad when out of
work in St. Helens attempted to pull off
a boxing contest here, but was interfered
with by the authorities. Then according
to his story, he fought young Gans, a
colored welterweight, at Fendletin in
June, knocking him out in nine rounds.
His next and last boxing contest was
at St. Johns, Or., on July 4. where he
defeated a man named Gillen, at the
Armory, in six rounds. Moriarty fays
bis troubles have been caused by the de
sire to secure enough money to take him
to the East, where lie thought ha could
eet remunerative employment at his
profession. He knows nothing of the
ownership of the horses or buguy he
stole except that it struck him that the
buggy which he saw in the ehed would
do to ride to Linntou in, as he had be
come tired of riding horseback. Moriarty,
during the past six weeks, has stolen
seven head of horses . Two from John
Berdahl, of Bachelor Flat ; one from I. G.
Wikstrom, of Scappoose; one from W. B.
Dfllard, the St. Helena attorney; one
from S. S. Montague, of the St. Helen's
quarry ; one from Dr. H. R. Cliff, of St.
Helens; one from Alexander Ask, of
Scappoose, and a buggy from the Free
Methodist minister at Houlton. Moriarty
caught the horses in the pasture or on
the raage, and led them to Linnton,
where he sold them to a man named J.
Kolentz, on representation that he was
acting as agent for his father who had a
surplus of horses on his place and was
selling them for what he could get. The
exact amount he relized for the horses !
cannot be ascertained, but for one of i
Berdahl'a horses, worth easily $200, he
received $125. The approximate value of
the horse3 aud buggy was f 1200. Sheriff
White does not delieve the story of i
Moriarty'a boxing contests, thinking
tbey are invented to explain his pos
session of money. He was arrested by
Sheriff Stevens at Linnton on a telephone
message irom Sheriff White, who had
bim under surveillance since the attempt
to pull off the boxing contest here some
six weeks ago. The Sheriff has located
all of the stolen horses with the ex.
ception of Alexander Aek's and their
owners will recover them.
