The new primary election
law which will govern all the
county and state nomination!
next campaign will make it
possible for tbe people and not
the corporations to elect a
United States Senator.
There is every indication that
this will be another year of
home building for La Grande.
Many thought 1904 was a record
breaker but the leading coniract-
org auu ttrcuiiecio ui
are in a position to justify the
predutton that there will be

making a reasonable appropri
ation to maiutain an exhibit
aud to keep a competent man in
charge of the same during the I
Lewis & Clark fair. They look
. . .
upouit as a business proposition
as haviher an investment of from
$20,000 to $25,000 lit would be

Upon the large amount already

or Baker counties just as well
as it does in Union county
The difference was that our peo-
le made an tffort and secured
it. United action and deter
mined effort will secure other in
uustries to be located in our
city. One of the quickest waye
to secure such would be for the
fifty or sixty business men of
this city who do not belong, to
join the Commercial Club and
take an active part in the direct
ion of building up this city.
It is practically an assuied
fact that at least seventy five
percent of tbe population of this

the next eight months. It lies
to a very great extent with the

auverti8iug tne business men
do whether or not these
people buy their outfits prior to
going or wait until they reacli
Portland to make their purchas
es. The people can be supplied
with their needs at hom6 much
cheaper than they can in the
crowded big stores of tbe met
ropolis, but it is up to tbe mer
chants to make this plain. It
can be for such are the facts.
The direct primary will result
in the virtual election of United
States senators in Orcgou by
direct vote of tbe people.
Tbere will be two places, for
tbe ieeiflatuie to sign. Tbe
first one will say that the can
didate, if elee'ed, will vote for
the nominee of tbe people. The
second will say that the can
didate will use his own judge-
mentin the eloctionof a United
States senator. Of course, all
the candidates who ate elected
will sign to the first bank.
Those who eien the second
blank will remain at home.
The people will argue that if
the candidates are afraid to
trust thein, they (the people)
will not desire to trust them
(the candidates.) In the first
election of United States senator
a year from next January, the
fifteen hold over state senators
will have a voice, and this may
cut some "figure. But if the
direct primary .law star da it
will become as impossible for
member of the legislature to go
contrary to the will of the peo
ple, as expressed at the polls in
the matter of their choise for
United States senator, as it
would be, for a presidential
elector to attempt to select some
other man than the one at th
head of his party's ticket in
national elections. The Dalles
