OREGON CITY" COURIER, FRIDAY, i DECEMBER 25 1903.
Ivpplanted in litw York By Boss
Rule of Odell and Roosevelt.
New. York World.
In a government of parties the govern
ment of the party becomes a matter of
prime importance. For the government
of tha state or nation.
. Under the Republcan theory, and ac
cording to the actual practice in most
of the states ot the Union today, the gov
ernment of the party is vested in its
voters. They tlect the dnlegtes. The
delwwtes nominate the caudMatesaud
naa.o the committees to maintain the
orgauination and conduct the campaigLS.',
The nominees, when elected, become
the servants of tue people and the in
struments of the party to give effect to
the will of Ihe niRj'irity.
This is popular government through
But in New York today boss rule has
supplanted party government. Itis boss
rule, loo, in its most dangerous a id of-fent-ive
form. For thebotsis the gov
ernor the Chief magistrate of all the
people, whose office should lift and keep
him above the plane of party manage
nieut, and especially above iacliual
contists and interference with the right
. of home rule in localities.
When Governor Odell causes it to be
known that a "reorganization" of tue
Hepublican committees in New York
and Brooklyn has been determined upon
, at Washington and proceeds to
carry it out to the smallest details of
committees that have not yet met for
organization, he takes a step which no
Governor of this state of nher party
has ever before ventured upon. And
when the committees prepare to eubtr it
to thiB dictation without open protest
they disclose a depth of subserviency
u liich does not exist in any other city or
slate of the Union unless it be in boss
ridden Philadelphia. The audacity of
tins action Is heightened when it ap
peal's that men selected for Chairman
and .Secretary of the Manhattan com
mittee are machine politicians of the
piotensioual tvpe, formerly closely af
filiated with Tammany Hall.
Nor doeB Governor Odell's arrogation
of power stop with this city. He has as
sumed and is actually exercising the
right to say w ho chall be the candidates
of his party for the Assembly, for the
Senate and for Congress. As the easiest
and eu rest way to direct the legislation
of the state, which be practically shaped
lf winter, be procures tlih nomination
of "'"liable" men through his control of.
the party organization.
To add to the enormity os these pro
ceedings iu abrogation of home rule and
in the pervieion of party Belf-govera-ment,
the Governor's course is taken
with the knowleuge and approval of the
President, and is backed by the iriesist
ible patronage of bis office, in his inter
, eetas a candidate for nomination.
And where, in this emeigency, are
the chronic clamorers for "borne rule?"
Where are the eloquent objectors to
"one-man power?" Ohuckliug over the
all of poor old Boss 11 at apparently
unaware that a greater than Piatt has
aiis n. with the President of the United
States as his ally.

There are still several women in ihe

Senator Rend Smoot is a cowboy,

Concerning his Panama policy, Presi
dent Roosevelt s message is an excellent
exponent of the policy that the end
justifies the means. -
Leader Murphy of Tammany Hall was
asked to help kill David B Hill. He
replied, "I am killing Republicans, not

for the pat t" to live up to.

Senator Till 'nan has introduced a

Thoee who deire a parcels post are
pleased to see that .this innovation is
being adovcated more and more Dy me
preea of both parties,, alt'ionght the
Democratic papers are more in favor of
it man are the Republican. After the
subject is much disenseed and the public
realizes the benefits of euch a system t' e
determined opposition of the expreBS
companies will be oveicome. The great
est ally of the companies in their fitrht
against a parcels post is Senator . Piatt,
Republican from New York, who is
president of the United States Express
, Tbe practicability of a parcels poet, is
demonstrated by the fact of its existence
in Germany, England and others
countries of Europe hiot ! many years.
The case of Germany jie the most in
structive. Here any package weighing
not more than fifty kilos (more than
100 pounds) can be Bent by post, to any
part of the Empire. The cost of trans
portation is far lem than ordinary ex
press charges in this country. Thegoods
are transported and delivered more
quickly. In evn the Smaller cities a
post wagon goes around each day in col
lect the packuges without exira clique.
As the poet offices are better distributed
than the express offices, the sending of
packages by poBt is more convenient. In
Germany it is. possible to order goods
from the city and have the money for
them a" well as the transportation
charges collected by the postman on delivery.
Coughs, Colds and Constipation.
'Few people realize when' taking cough
medicines other than Foley's Honey
and Tar, that they contain opiates which
are constipating besides being unsafe,
particularly for children. Foley's Honey
and Tar contains no opiates, is safe and
sure, and will not constipate. It has
long been a household favorite for
coughs, colds, croup and all throat:
and lung troubles. It is pleasant to take
an1 acts promptly. Char man & Co.
