The republican party have always been
for majority role. It is the foundation
both of this government and the party.
Tbis principal has always been recog
nized and especially so in tbis country.
When at the last election the party
pledged iteell in its platform that the
members oi the legislature should sup
port the caucus nominee for United
States eenator. This action was taken
, because of the action in the last two
legislatures concerning the election of a
senator. In 1895 tbere was a bolt from
the regular nominee which nearly dis
rupted the legislature, prevented needed
legislation, and divided the party which
has lasted to thisday. In 1807 a hold
up was perpetrated that was a disgrace
to the state and prevented the legislat
ures from being organizad and conse
quently no election of senator or the
passage ol needed legislation.
With this record before It our last
convention saw fit, and wisely too, to in
struct the delegation from Clackamas
county to support the caucus nominee in
The legislature has been elected and
convened in special session for the
purpose of electing a United States
senator. Tbeie are 66 republican mem'
bers out of 90 in the two houses. A
call was issued for a caucus and signed
by 37 republican members of the two
bouses for a caucus including the preei
dent of the senate and the speaker of
the house, each belonging to different
factions of tbe party. The caucus was
attended by 36 members, a majority of
tbe republicans in the two houses and
they nominated W. H. Corbelt for sena
tor. Thirty republicans did not take
part in tbe caucus but some of these will
undoubtedly support the nominee.
Tbe writer in view of the past record
of two legislatures mentioned and tbe
action of the last county convention, took
part in the caucus, and while the nomi
nee was not bis personal choice he will
support tbe caucus nwminee so long as
tbere is a reasonable show of bis elec
tion. When it appears that there is no
longer any such hope he will support
some other candidate and under all cir
cumstances will do bis utmost to secure
the election of a senator. Unless the re
publican party wants to approve hold
ups and deadlocks, it must submit to
majority rule. Nothing less will ever
secure harmony or tbe election of a
ports. It is a most healthful sign when
the department of State thus systemati
cally and promptly encourages American
Tux governor is correct when he
warns the legislature against lusty legis
lation. Under the rule of the legislature
it is next to impossible to get a bill
through in twenty days unless under
suspension of the rules. To suspend the
rules is not desirable as many bad
measures get through under this pro
cedure and the tendency is growing less
and lees to allow this to be done.
If tbe legislature can elect a senator and
pass the general appropriation bill so as
to stop the interest on state warrants it
will have done as mueu aa ought in
reason to be expected ot it To try and
do more will probably result in more
harm than good on account of tbe limited
time. A few bills of a strictly local
nature w ill undoubtedly pass, as they
will be left entirely to the delegation
from the county affected and will not be
looked into by others.
Tus members of the legislature that
refused to go into the caucus, with
one or two exceptions, called by a
majority of the republican members, are
holding a caucus almost nightly. They
being in a minority are not opposed' to
a caucus so long as they can control it.
These meetings are secret and only tuch
people are present ss are in sympathy
with minority rule. The party has i
right and should insist on majority rule
Judging from the vole oi tiie caucus
held if all the republicans would attend
a caucus some other man than the one
nominated could be named for senator,
but itwould arpear that the people in
the minority are determined to name tbe
man if possible.

BILL PASSED THE SENATE.

As evidence that the republican party
is doing what it promised to do, the
senate on Wednesday unanimously
passed Senator Daly's bill for the repeal
of the railroad commission and passed
Senator Kelly's bill repealing the law
creating the food commissioner by a vote
of 22 to 7. It is safe to say that the senate
is in earnest on the question of retrenchment.

The following taken from the Sep
tember Sciuutillc American gives one a
good idea of how these immense rafts are
The largest marine structure that ever
entered the bay of San Francisco ar
rived in that port the first ot August.
It consisted of an immense raft of piles,
ten thousand in number, which haJ
been chained together at Stella, State of
Washington, a point about seventy miien
from the mouth of the Columbia River.
The dimensions were: Total length,
000 feet ; breadth. 50 feet, with a dop.h
of 45 feet. The 10,000 piles, which
varied in length from 30 to IK) feet, were
from 12 to 18 inches in diameter at the
butt. The raft drew 80 feet ol water,
and it contained upward of 5,000,000
lineal feet ol timber. The distance from
starting point to destination is about 700
miles, and 5 V,' days' (owing was em
ployed in bringing it to port..
To transKrt the same number of piles
by steamers would have employed twenty
at least, of the ordinary sine. The jour
ney from tbe shipping point was made
without accident, owing to the unusually
favorable weather, and the successful re
sult of the venture has encouraged the
Northern timber dealers in continuing
this method of shipment.
Ow ing to the excellent financial re
sults of rafting, attempts have been made
in past years to introduce this method
on the Pacific coast. So far five at
tempts have been made, and success has
attended three of them. One grounded
on the bar at Coos Bay and another was
lost at sea. This last waa far and away
the largest yet attempted and will be
succeeded by another fully as large.
Smpments of piles only have so far been
made in this way, but it is the intention
to experiment In shipping lumber either
sawed or in the rough, the saving in
freight alone allowing a margin (or large
The method of building these rafts at
Stella d lifers radically from that pur
sued at the East, when the attempts
were made to raft timbers from Nov
Scotia to Eastern ports. The Cana
dians constructed theirs apon ways built
npon the land, which were launched
when completed, just as vessels are in
Washington. However, the rafts are
constructed in a different manner. First
of all a cradle is built the length of the
proposed raft, with side timbers of about
20 feet in height, separated from each
other by blocks. The interior of this
cradle is of the shape of the raft, largest
n the center and tapering to a point at
hotheads. By means of an engine and
tackle the piles are hoisted over the sides
of the cradle and land in their proper
places by hand. When the raft is built
up lo one-half the proper height, a chain
cable, 2 inches in diameter, is stretched
from end to end, and at every 10 feet a
chain is made fast to the central cable
and extended to the outside, where two
ends are fastened to the cable which sur
rounds the raft. Tbe strain by this con
nection extends from the central to the
outside chains and adds to rigidity and
strength of the whole. Sixty tons of
chain, in separate lengths of 50 to 150
feet and IJj inches in diameter, were
nsed. The outside was surrounded by
these cables at intei vals of 10 feet.
The stretching of the cables around
the outside is not accomplished until the
whole structure has been built up. At
every 10 feet between the timbers ol
which the cradle is constructed a wire is
stretched around the raft. The end of
the chain is fastened to the end of the
wire, and is thus drawn around the raft
and fastened at tbe top. The cradle
timbers, after the taft is finished, are
drawn from either side of the raft, which
rests upon the water, ready for towing.
The timbers are again set up, and the
building of a new raft begun.
