In Oreffon we are rich in our Austral
ian Ballot Initiative and Referendum and
Direct Primary. This evening 1 soeak es
pecially of the Primary, the Candidates
and the ejection.
Under the direct primary the peop!
Tne party boss loses much of his
power. The bad! candidate has much
less chance. Farming out nominations
and paying party debts cannot be carried
on as of old. "
Of course corrupt politicians will oppose
the direct primary, but it is right and wil I
win. , The law is new and abuses may
occur, but we can trust the people rather
than a few self chosen dictators.
The candidates are plentiful and wish
to see the people. We, the people, count
this year. But for the direct primary
some ot tne west Uregomans m.gm never
have seen this part of the state.
Bad men may present themselves as
candidates, but the people will keep de
manding that only good men go on the
tickets. Our candidates must be honor
able men. Men who are tricky in busi'
ness or whose word is doubted, will not
They must be clean men. The man
who is untrue to his wife will be false to
his state. The man who is vile in per
sonal life cannot be trusted. ,
We demand sober men. We can't trust
a drunken teacher nor doctor. No more
a drunken official. The people ask for
men who respect the laws and whose
official oath means something. The man
who in some minor office or simply as a
citizen has stood for disrespect of law
whether city or state, is a dangerous man.
We can't afford to turn our goveryment
over to these anarchists.
We should study the records of the men
who ask places on the tickets.
The selection of candidates is in the
hands of the parties. Every man should
register. He who does not should be de
nied a vote. . The privilege to swear in a
vote in June is a weak point. Anybody
can find six freeholders to swear if he
votes their way.
Every good Republican and Democrat
should vote next Friday.
The primaries over, we, as independent
Americans, select the best men on the
tickets. If for any office only bad men
should be nominated we have the right to
nominate by petition and the independent
candidate will be a factor in the problem.
In June we vote on several amendments.
We should study each.
I mention two. First the one granting
equal suffrage. Because we wish to be
fair we will vote "yes." We will not
force woman to vote, but we will give her
the right Second, the liquor dealers' bill
to virtually kill local option. Will the
people of Oregon go back upon their de
cision of two years ago? Nol If they
are aroused on the matter they will vote
right, but we must be awake to our
danger and not allow the work of years
to be undone.
The rig'it to vote is sacred, it brings
grave responsioiuties. Praying men
should pray earnestly before voting. All
true men should think seriously and vote
as in discharge of a solemn duty.
