Two yean ago, Mr, Weeks, a promi
nent farmer of Marion county, claimed
that county would poll 1000 socialist
rotes. Nov the socialists make the
sane claim for Clackamas.
A irnouon Oregon has a normal Re
publican majority of 10,000, there seems
to be little doubt of the election of Geo.
E. Chamberlain, the' democratic candi
date for governor. Not only is he a
much abler and bettor equipped man for
the position that his opponent, but he
enjo8 the confidence of the people of
Oregon to a uiucli greater degree. Mr.
Furnish, the republican candidate, is
principally known as a uiiin who lias
aum-sud a considerable money through
exacting the hint farthing from those
not able to drive as hard a bargain as he
can, and using his wealth as a fulcrum
to the realization of his wishes and ends.
MADE J'OLiriCS A FINANCIAL
William J. Furnish, the republican
candidate Mr governor, has imulu a re
Bpccublo fortune out of politic-i. Ho
was Urst a deputy United States mar
shal under l'residiuitCSldvuUnd, funning
tlio nllicH to a llnish by arresting white
men for gulling liquor to Indians and
hauling them off to Portland where
they would receive a tine in the toiler al
court, while he would lecoive hundreds
of dollars in mileage and fees for each
cauo. The grultgiewto such propor
tion Hut Juilgd Bollinger put a stop to
it by declaring that tlio Umatilla In
.diftiua wore citieus and entitled to drink
us much or its often as they pleased,
Then Furnish Bcrved two terms as
sheiurof Umatilla county as a demo
crat, the fee i-yatem enabling hhu to
make thouftinds of dollars annually.
From the sheriff's otlico he evoluted into
a banker and when Uryau was nomi
nated for president became a gold demo
irat. Always a shrewd politician he
had withiutwo years' time capturod the
republican organization ot the county
and shoved the old-time leaders into the
buekwgroiind. Now, less than six years
from the time he first bolted the demo
cratic ticket, he becomes the republican
candidate for governor.
Feitiuently the Eugene Guard asks,
will the people give him a chaace to
work the state treasury to pergonal
profl t ?
Encouraging reports are received from
11 Dirts of Oregon by the Democratic
State Central Committee and its chair
maa, Situ White. Them reports indi
cate peculiar political situation mat
seems to promisa democratic vie
torv for a state that is nomi
nally ten thousand republican. The
reasons why this peculiar condition ex
fits are many, bat one of thpm is the
excellent state ticket that has been
Dominated. The state convention held
on the 10th and 11th was a remarkable
It was composed of representative
citizens and although several tests were
waged for nominations, at its adjourn
ment not a delegate left. the
hall, feeling other than confident of suc
cess in Jane and perfectly satisfied with
the work the convention had peiformed.
"O ntrast is, indeed, marked between
the democratic and the republican state
conventions. Whereas the democracy
presents a" unbroken front and is daily
receiving accretions of power, that there
is a landslide away from the republican
ticket is conceded by the most astute
republicans in the state. They differ
only in estimating its volume, but there
is no question among them that a dis
affection has been caused and is now
operative against the republicans in Ore
gon. Letters, telegrams and personal
calls from prominent republican leaders
indicate that the democratic ticket will
receive support this year from powerful
citizens who have heretofore on posed it.
Fred J Meindl, socialist candidate
for state senator, addressed about 60
people in Holcomb school house last
Friday evening on the issues of the cam
paign. The audience manifested a deep
interest in the remarks of the yonng
speaker. Mr. Meindl said among the
voters of Holcomb OL-half would vote
the socialist ticket and the other half
the citizens ticket.-Enterprise, April 19
Where does vour machine ticket come
The vote of Clackamas county in
1898 stood 2161 for Geerto 1772 for
King ; in the the state 45,083 and 34,542.
In June, 1900, the vote stood 2053 for
republicans and 1641 for fusion, the state
vote being 4 1,025 and 33,388. In the fall
of 1900 the presidential vote stood 2231
and IC40, in state 48,420 and 33 216.
The nomination of W. F.Young.of the
Wesi Side, for joint representative by
the democratic county central committee
on Tuesday was good. He comes from a
section that was not represented on the
ticket. Now all sections of the county
have fair representative.
By next week it is expected the cam
paign will be on in earnest. The can

17, 18G4. After he received bis educa

he opened a general merchandise store
at Gresham and was postmaster at that
place for six years. He has since been
engaged with his father, Boone John

business at Damascus. He has good
business ability and is a good penman
and book-keeper and qualified in every
way to assess the county in an equitable

the requisite energy and old enough to
have good judgment.
w. F. YOUNG,
Candidate for joint representative with
Multnomah county on citizens ticket,
was born on the plains coming to Ore
gon. He is a prominent and influential
citizen of the West Side. Mr. Young
was a candidate for commissioner be
fore the citize.is mass convention and
twice received a plurality of voters but
C. W. Risloy finally received a majority
of the votes, and was made nominee.
Mr. Young Is honest, industrious and

The chances for the success of the citi
zens ticket are getting better every day
and it now looks is if it was but a ques
tion of the the size) of the majority. The
candidates are well received by the voters
and the amount of encouragement they
get is astonishing. People are be

of the offices in the court house are nec

citizens convention was held last, it
seems entirely in keeping with natural
law that our platform failed to precede
tneirs, ii oue carea to gi into the mat
ter of platform stealing the populists
might have charged the the republicans
with doing that, for anyone at all con
versant with the history of the direct
'."glslit'on movement in Oivon is
aware that it was the populist party ai d
the labor organizations which foughf di
rect legislation into popularity.
. Not more than four years ago the re
publican siste platform, . instead of en
dorsing, contained a direct slap at the
very principle which the aforesaid party
now seems inclined to claim a patent
on. Here is the plank question from
the republican state platform of 1898:
"We are firmly attached to the princi
ples of our federal constitution. We
recognize that representative govern
ment iB one of the principles and we are
opposed to any change in law or consti
tution which will abrogate this time
This plank meant, if it meant any
thing, the very opposite of direct legisla
tion. Yet this new direct, legislation
sharp talks of others endorsing the prin
ciple of direct legislation "merely to get
into the band wagon," and reveals his
great familiarity with the subject under
considerat ion by informing us, (in an
other editorial; tint "direct legislation
is a general term, meaning all forms of
direct voting by the people including
candidates an well as measures'. Initia
tive and referendum is the name of
that limited part of direct legislation
that refers to the proposing and making
of laws by direct vote by the people "
This will prove a revelation to those
who, after, studying the direct legisla
tion movement for the past eight or ten
years, began to think they understoo
it fairly well. Now it seems we must
begin over again, for direct legislation
is here declared to mean voting for man
as well as measures, and the initiative
and referendum are spoken of as a "lim
ited part" of direct legislation.
This style of argument tends rather
to confuse rather thau enlighten, for if
voting for candidates is direct legisla
tion, what in the name of common sense
is indirect legislation' No, it is too
late in the day to coin anew meaning
for the term "direct legislation " The
old one, laid down by J. W. Sullivan,
George Shibley and all the pioneers in
the movement, is definite enough, and
is expressed by the title of Sullivan's
book, "Direct Legislation Through the
Initiative and Referendum." It were
just as logical to arguo that United
states senators are now elected by direct
vote as to as-ert that oting tor candi
dates who are then to vote for laws, is
THE MODERN FABLE
Of the Agricultural Ingrate and
the Revenge of the Common
A farmer once ran for a county office.
He hitched up to his sidebar Buggy and
drove around and Electioneered until he
had the Job cinched. A man who lived
in Town tried to pull down the Nomina
tion, but the Hack TownBnips were an
for the Farmer. The Voters said they
calculated that Lem was in Sympathy
with the Toiling Masses, for he wore a
Suit of Blue Jumpers and a Hickory
Shirt and a full set of Aelians, and he
certainly looked the Part. ,
; Lem was carried to the county seat on
a Wave of Popular Enthusiasm. He
moved into a House that was painted
four or five Colors and he began to wear
his Black Suit every Day with a Boiled
Shirt and Bleeve Buttons. The Word
traveled back to the Country that Lem
was getting to be a dal-Blithered Dude,
and the next thing you knew, by Orimi
nies, he'h be sporting a Necktie. Lem
had his Chinc'llas neatty trimmed by
the Town Barber and came out in a Der
by. Hespreadit on pretty Thick and
His old-time Neighbors would drive
in town of a Saturday after a Week of
Hard Work and they would see Lem
sitting by a Window in the Court Houso
playing Checkers with the Town Licr.
When they realized that they, the Tax
payers, weie giving Lem a large Salary
for Bitting around in his Sunday Best,
they realized Unit Lem iiad entered into
that old and well-known Conspiracy to
bunko the Granger and troldbrick him
and give him the Short End generally.
Sa when Lem ran for re-election the out
lying Vote fell on him like a Horse on a
Butterfly. Every hard-working Tiller
of the Soil took a crack at Lem because
he lived in Town and Put on Dog.
When Lem found himself Marooned lie
did not want to go back to the Country
and tackle Hard Work again. Ha staid
in Town and permitted his Wife to take
Boarders. A govt 1-armer was spoiled
in the makingol msappoittieu rumirmu,
but the Voters did not acknowledge that
thev were to Blame.
Moral: Never wean the Honest loiler
away from his Blue Jumpers. George
