Since the above was written Brother
Porterjhasjeven tried to get on thecitizens
ticket as joint representative. The
above article is merely a bid for financial
assistance from the office-seekers.
Everybody seems to think Mr. Porter has
had a pretty good pull at the public teat
and has forced him to let go, much
against his will, and now he won'f'stand
in" unless he is paid for so doing We
always knew he was cold-blooded but
this beats anything we have ever heard
of. Poor fellow, as his paper don't sup

Double L. Porter in his sheet last
week, as usual, misrepresented the pro
position of the writer to buy a couple of
lots that the city has been unable to
dispose of for the past eight years, the
same to be paid for in city printing.
The managements of the paper mills
are to be commended , for manner
in which they raised the wages
of their employes. The wages of all
employes getting less than 3 per day
wei e raised 25 cents each per day .

as honorable in peace as he was in war.
Tho pension attorneys want a commis

It must be that Rosevelt is bidding for

. A good j)ke is told on Porter while he
was attending the state convention. . He
was being "joshed" for not "setting
them ud" to the boys the he it last
summoned courage and asked a delegite
to go across the street with him. When
part the way over, the delegate asked
Porter what he wanted of him. Porter
replied, "I want to buy you a cigar."
The man was horrified and threw up his
hands and said, "Nol I do not want you
to break your record, Mr. Porter."
The East Side Heral d of Portland,
has the following to say of the fellow
that publishes the Can by paper :
In Portland there is a fake "news--paper
syndicate" ' conducted by one
Ralph Clyde, who claims to print twelve
suburban and country papers with a com
bined circulation of 60,000 copies, while
as a matter of fact the entire circulation
of all will not average to exceed 150
copies each. These "newspapers" are
rotten up in entirely by , the Northern
Pacific Newspaper, Union which presum
ably fosters this fake "syndicate" Jn
order to swell the record sheet of papers
published by them for the use of Eastern
advertisers, who are charged a high rate
for each "patent inside" containing
their advertisement. And so, behold I
the newspaper union hoodwinked the
Eastern advertiser, and the fake 12
paper "syndicate" of Portland swindles
the local advertiser. But that is not all.
It is currently reported that the 12
paper "syndicate" nurtured and suckled
by the Northern Pacilic Newspaper
Union, has succeeded in blackmailing a
cert lin railroad company to the extent
of 500; and the legitmate newspapers
will have to suffer in consequence.
Of course no one expects anything bet
ter of men of Clyde's stamp, but the
public certainly does expect something
bettor of the American Type Founders
Company. If it cannot maintain its
patent 'inside concern in Portland with
out fathering and giving moral support
tn fake newspaper projects it had better
close np shop, or at least place the
Portland branch in the hands of a mana
ger who does not try to build up his
business by encouraging and fostering

By a corrupt and venal combination
Governor Geer was beaten for a re-
nomination at the hands of the Re
publican onvent'on held in Portland.
Among those who conspired todefeat was
the delegation from this county, headed
by one who sought to sw ap the vote of the
entire delegation of sixteen like so many
cattle, in order to secure the boodle office
of state printer. But with all their na
tive cunning our local politicians got
beautifully left They delivered the
goods too soon. The nomination for
governor came first and after they had
sacrificed our good ' governor in the in
terests of a Pendleton hanker, then the
other party failed to keep its part of the
infamous contract and the Clackamas
candidate was wholly ignored, as well
he should have been for entering into
any such nefarious deal.
Such are the mutations of politics.
The result but illustrates the iniquity of
booble politics. Such methods but im
press upon the public, the urgent need
of reform aid give strenght to move
ments in the interest of honest govern
ment. There must come an end to.
dishonesty in politics; to those who live
by sharp practice there must some time
come an end the question is only,
