To the Editor of the Courier :
In your issue of August 28th you have
the following, which as I think a great
injustice to me:
While in Southern Oregon recently
Hon. Geo. O. Brownull tolu the people
there what he thought would be good
amendments to the state constitution
and promised to do all he could for same
and the people there believed him. We
wonder if thev would do same here?
I have earnestly advocated a new con-
stitntion for Oregon upon many dif
ferent occasion. I advocated it at the
Chautauqua at Gladstone park and at
Ashland last July and four years ago all
over Clackamas county and during the
late campaign, and the press of this state
generally gave me the credit of leading
the fight in the senate of 1895. I also
advocated the bill which was known as
senate bill No. 58 for a constitutional
convention in the judiciary committee
of which I was a member. This bill
was reported favorably from the said
committee, which report was signed by
Senators Cogswell, Brownell, Cowan and
Hut son, and the minority reoort was
signed by Senator Denny of Multnomah
county. So you will notice that I could
not have fought the bill in the committee
because I signed the report recommend
ing its passage to the senate. That report
is a matter of record. When this bill
Came up for its final passage on Friday,
February 15th, 1805, 1 advocated it upon
the floor of the senate to the best of my
ability and voted for it as well. This
can be ascertained by anyone examining
the senate journal at pages 536 and 537
for the year 1805. I shall do my best to
secure this legislation' this coming seS'
sion. Friendly yours, . . .
, J' Geo. C. Bkowxkia.

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for anv season, but perhaps more ifenur-
ally needed in the Spring,- when the
languid exhausted leuiing prevails, wnen
the liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is telt. A
prompt use of this medicine has nlten
averted long and perhaps fatal bilious
fevers. No medicine will act more
surely in counteracting and freeing Hie
system from the malarial poison. Head
ache, Indigestion, Constipation, Diz
sines yield to Electric Bitters. Only
