The Republicans or Oregon are en
titled to have a Republican named as
the National Republican Committee
man from this State. C. W. Ackeraon,
who claims to be a Republican, Is a

National Committeeman. Then can
celled his registration aa a Progres

and Immediately riled hla candidacy
for membership on Republican Nation

and convenient understudy or the Pro
gressive National Committeeman and
aeems now to be In combination with

It Is a graver abuse tor outsiders to
attempt the capture of a political par
ty to gratify a personal grudge and
to promote party discord. It Is an
abuse against which fair minded men
of all parties will rlso in protest. We
can norr have a reunited party by
puahlng to the front political hotheads
and men who are political reformers
simply for the sake of office. Having
been a Republican only twenty-four

In the gift ot the party, Is some Indi
