H. M. Cake, Republican candidate for
United States Senator, has announced the
platform upon which he will go before the
people of Oregon at the primaries. The
man and the platform will certainly meet
with the approval of the people. Loyalty
to Republican principles, devotion to the
development of Oregon, improvement of
rivers and harbors, a vigorous policy . in
the, reclamation of arid lands, government
ownership of the Oregon City locks, tariff
for protection and not for monopoly, op
position to trusts, equitable railroad rata
legislation, aid to deserving veterans, a
fair trial of the primary law, construc
tion of the Panama canal, a strong posi
tion on the right of labor, exclusion of
Chinese coolie labor, direct election of
United States Senators, and a strong
stand with the President for the people,
are some of the propositions upon which
Mr. Cake faces the people of Oregon.
He holds the enforced principles of the
Republican party a condition necessary to
the prosperity of the people and the main
tenance of our institutions, and points to
the progress the nation has made along
all lines under Republican administration
He declares for harmony in the party and
advocates that consideration be shown
those who have assisted in maintaining
the stability of the organization, and con
demns discord, factions and unsettled al
legiance to its principles.
He urges the necessity of strong efforts
to develop the resources and industries of
Oregon and movements to procure federa
appropriations to aid in . building up the
state. On the subject of improvement of
rivers and harbors he pledges himself, in
the event of his election, to spare no effort
to procure federal appropriations for the
oompletion of jetty construction at the
mouth of the Columbia, opening of the
Dalles-Celilo canal, the dredging of the
Willamette river, and the deepening of the
harbors of Tillamook, Coos and Yaquina
bays and the Coquille river. He advo
cates continuing contracts whereby the
improvement work will be permanent and
effective and not mere contingent appro
priations which result in little good.
His platform f wore a more vigorous
prosecution of the work of reclaiming arid
lands in Oregon than ha been the case
He takes a strong stand for government
ownership of the Oregon City locks as a
means of affording relief to the people of
the Willamette valley from tolls on their
He declares in favor of a tariff for pro
tection, not for monopoly, and takes the

position that when a particular industry
has become able to take care of itself,
tha tariff should be modified to meet the
changed conditions. The tariff laws, he
says, should not be manipulated in the
interests of a monopoly of any commodity
of the people's necessities.
A strong stand is taken in opposition to
trusts, which Mr. Cake declares to be a
menace to the liberties of the people and
contrary to every prinople of public pol
icy, and he declare in favor of th pro
hibition of trust combine from carrying
on business, their dissolution, and the
punishment of violators of law In this
respect; . besides such additional legisla
tion as i necessary to correct the evil.
He strongly favor giving the Interstate
Commerce Commission power to regulate
railroads and other corporations carrying
on an Interstate business.
He favors national aid for deserving

those who risked life, limb and property
for their country in time of national
danger, are entitled to aid from the gov
ernment. He is in entire accord with th
policy of aiding those deserving
Th primary law, cay Mr. Cake, ha
been adopted by an overwhelming vote of
the people and he favors giving it a full,
fair, and complete trial.
H stands for th completion of the
Panama canal with all possible dispatch
in th interests of American commerce,
and a a mean of facilitating th move
ments of the American navy.
He declare th right of th American
workingman to organize for the protection
of his rights to be an inherent one and
the only means by which he can compete
with organized capital. He is in favor of
reducing the hours of labor and takes the
position that the employment of children
in classes of labor that injure them in
mind and body, should be prohibited by
The platform takes a strong stand in
opposition to the modification or repeal of
the Chinese exclusion act.
The present system of electing United
States Senators is unsatisfactory, says
Mr. Cake, and he fully endorses the policy
of electing United States Senators by
direct vote of the people.
He applauds the stand taken by Presi
dent Roosevelt in opposition to trusts and
combines of capital, and pledges himself
that in tha event of hi election, he will
stand with the President on the side of
the people in th fight against organizad
