AN IMPORTANT ELECTIO.V
The slate and county election to be held
in Oregon next June is the most iniortant,
in point of numbers of slate, district, and
ron nty officials to be elected, of any that
itjll again be held tor 12 years to come, for
lt.il only once in 12 years, tinder our present
election laws, thai a complete set of slate,
district and county ctlicers are chosen.
The list ol stale officers, embracing the
ovornor. secretary of slate, treasurer,
school Miperintendent, attorney general,
and state printer are lo be chosen, also a
member of congress from each district.
Two United Stales senators are to be elected
at the two next sessions of the legislature,
provided there ate t.o Sinioii-U'Kren bold
ops to prevent. The voters oltlils district
will be called upon to say who shall be
circuit judge and district attorney, Judge
McBride and Mr. Cleeton's terms expiring
jiext July, as well as wbo shall be the next
member of tbe state board of equaliiation.
For Clackamas county two state senators
and three representatives will have to be
selected and the full county list embracing
jndge, commissioner, clerk, sheriff, recorder,
treasurer, assessor, school superintendent,
surveyor and cororer, as also tbe justice!
and constables for the various districts.
It will ibus be eeeti that the voters of Or
gon have a greater responsibility than usual
resting upon them in the coming election,
and as taxpayers and citizens it behooves
theni to be ai ake to their interests and to
the welfare and good name of the state
Oregon, through a series of causes, is strug
gling under a very heavy loud of high faxes,
in the various levies required from state
down lo K-bool tax, and to lessen this bur
den will require men in otliee who are
known to be thorough and successful busi
ness men, and not merely politicians and
vote-getters Our stale is just recovering
from an era of unprecedented bard times
and with the stimulus given to the financial
and industrial energies of the country by tbe
incoming of a republican national adminis
tration, this slate can make, witb its bound
less resources, a most marvelous growth in
tbe next lew years lo come. But if the re
publicans of Oregon are derelecl'in their
duties and by distentions and indifference
allow the state to come under control of the
populists, with their reactionary methods
and revolutionary practices, then may
we expect, and be sure of undergoing
another period ol depression and sana
tion, lor both cat ital and ludor will shun
our state, as lias been the case witb other
stales, ai d the w ail of the calamity howler
will displace the busy hum of industry.
Another important fact that the republi
cans ol Oregon should bear in mind, is that
the senators from Oregon may dictate the po
litical complexion of the next United Slates
senate, so close is party lines in that body.
It therefore is imperative that a republican
legislature be chosen, so that Oregon may
not be the means of handicapping President
McKinley's administration with a senate
antagonistic to the policy of tbe republican
SHALL hTOKES CLOSE EARLY.
The movement for early closing of bn si
nets houses is making steady progress in
many tow ns ol Oregon. Oregon City being
about the only tow n of any size thut lias not
either put the movement into effect, or at
least having it under consideration, this
town being content to keep in tbe old rut,
in fact many of our stores, especially some
of those started within the last year or so,
keeping open so late as 10 lo 11 o'clock.
Tbe Kugene merchants have effected an
early closmgorganization and now all itores
in that town close at 7 p. m. 8o
stores in Portland now close early that the
custom of evening trading is being very
materially lessened, all the better class of
stores being closed, leaving only the small
shops to grasp for the pennies of the late
shoppers. There is neither reason nor
thrift in keeping a store open late in the
evening. Even here in Oregon City, with
our large laboring population, the profits
on the goods sold after 8 o'clock p. in. will
not, one month with another, pay for the
lights and luel consumed during these late
hours. In fact there is very little trading
done after 7 o'clock, and that done after 5
o'clock is principally in the grocery and
jntalline and is in small packages which
re carried to their homes by the purchasers.
Since Hi custom of taking outers and free
delivery lias been adopted by the merchant
nine-tenths ol the day' bitumens la trannan
ted before ft o'clock . m. and it the InitKimlj
knew that the Mores closed early nil tlie
trailing would he done that in now done and
no one would be inconvenienced or would
tutlVr by the chance in the hour of clo.liij.
There is no more husdnejs necessity or
reason for dry goods and grocery Mores to
ramain open hall of the night, than there is
for lawyers, doctors, or banks to keep lale
hours and it is false economy to both mer
chant and customer, I.ate closing deprives
the merchant of the rest he needs, as well as
the pleasure of having at least a few hours
with his family, there being merchants In

"'!''.. "o for weeks at a time, oilier
than umlav, never see their children
except at meal time and then only for a few
brief moments as a hurried dinner Is euten.
It rests with the merchants whether they
shall keep their stores open 10 hours or 18
hours, their customers with Tew exceptions,
would be satisfied with the ten hour limit
in which to do their shopning.
RACIAL DISTINCTION FOR VOTERS.
An ellort is being made to organize the
German voters of Clackamas countv for
political purposes and to that end a meeting
was held in this city last Sunday, which
was attended by about 20 Germans. The
moving spirit and power behind the throne
in this effort to lurther complicate the
political situation In this county by bring
ing in a racial factor, is a few republican
and democratic politicians wbo hne by
this means to control the German vote in
To organize the voters of this county by
racial distinctions is one of the most deplor
able and at the same time dangerous (no
vations which can be brought into our
political system. This nation paid dearly,
in the blood of its men and tbe tears of its
widows and orphans, for allowing sectional
(It (Terences to segregate its voters and we
are already beginning to hear the ominous
muttering of the arraying of our voters by
classes against each otber, by the anarchis
tic threats tbat are coming up from our
great cities. And now to appeal to the
racial pride and predjucies of the voters of
free America and array them agniost each
otber on selfish, personal lines, rather than
on divisions over great questions of political
economv, is to be deplored by every person
who has the welfare and future peace of
this nation at heart.
Questions ol public policy and political
economy should alone divide the voters of
this country, and the fitness of the men to
represent these principles and their ability
and manhood should oe the test of their
qualiticalions when seeking the suffrages of
their fellow voters, and that they represent
the German, the Irish, the French, tbe
Dago or the the twenty other nationalities
having large following In the United
States, should not be considered
Tbe future stability and prosperity of
tbis nation demand that its voters be
Americans, no matter under what Hag they
were born, and tbat no racial, class or sec
tional ditlerences array them into hostile
Senator Geo. W. Mi'BriPK left last Sat
urday for the East where he will attend
meeting in St. Paul, of the senate special
committee to consider plans for checking
the floods in tbe Mississippi river, either by
building reservoirs on its headwaters or by
a system of levees to retain the Hood when
once started. This investigation will take
several weeks, as the committee will visit all
parts of tbe Mississippi valley, after which
the Senator will go to Washington to ar
range bis work lor the coming session of con
gress, wli ich meets in December. Congresv
men Tongue and Kllis will leave for Wash
ington in two or three weeks, so as to be
there in ample time to get their work in
shape before congress convenes.
8PIKIT OK THE F&KS&
"Congressmen Tongue and W. R. Kllis
are going to Yaipuina liay soon, says the
Yaiiina New s, to examine the public works
there. (Senator George W. McBride would
have made one of tbe party, hut the sub
committee on commerce ol which he is a
member meets in St. Paul on tbe Irtiu inst,
hence his inability to be here." The Ore
gon delegation are alive to the interests of
the entire stale and are doing ellicient work
That our present laws for the collection
of taxes works a very great hardship upon
poor men who Are uulurtuiiate enough to
get upon the delinquent list, is a lact that
is most deeply deplored by all who wish
the poor to have a fair show in the struggle
to gain a home. On this subject the Port
land Farm, Flock and Factory has the fol
lowing sensible words to say: "The idea
that, because taxes on lands are delinquent,
they shall be advertited at great expense,
bid in by monied men and then again specu
lated on, is a shame. If land taxes are de
linquent, they should be simply forfeited
to the county, redeemable by the owner at
any time within lOyears upon the payment
of the taxes due and legal interest for all
delinquencies. People should not be
robbed out of their money or their lauds
because they happen to be poor."
