Next Monday is election day and the
hopes and fears of half of the people of
Oregon will be at rest. The state is
going Republican. Whatever doubt
there may have been of this does not
now exist. As the campaign bas pro
grebsed the prospects for republican
'victory have grown briijhterand brighter
and there is no question that
the voters of the state will roll up
the accustomed big majority for the
party that advocates expansion and
progress, honest money, laws for the
benefit of the working man and passage
of measure that are just and will stand
the test of time.
A feeble attempt bas been made in
Clackamas County by the fusionists to
put op a fight but they have made a
signal failure. At every torn of the
road they have gone wrong. Allied with
the fusionists and at their bead are men
who are little short of political rene
gades. Seekers after office, without
party, without principle and con
sequently without the ghost of a
chance of success, tbey have gone on
slump in every precinct in Clackamas
County and attempted to tear down the
structure of government. All over the
world you will find men like these.
They are sometimes hounded into mak
ing promises but in Clackamas County
they are making none. Their policy is
to scuttle the ship and may the devil
take the hindmost. In some places they
are called anarchists, in others agitators,
nd often they glory in these names.
Rut right here, with unenviable records
staring them in the face, they mount the
platform of UDtrnth and misrepresenta
tion, and with volleys of fierce denunci
ation of ways that are not theirs, stand
THOMAS F. RYAN.
At the session of the Grand Encampment I. 0. 0 F. of Oregon,
held at Newport, Ore., on May 20, Judge Ryan was unanimously elect
ed as representative of the I. 0. 0. F. of Oregon to the Sovereign Grand
Lodge of the United States and Canada for tlio t usuing two years. Mr.
Ryan states that he will endeavor to have the session of l!05 held in
Portland, Ore., so that it may add to the features and attractions of the
Lewis and Clark Exposition. He further states that at the sessions to
be held in Council Bluffs, Iowa, this year, and doubtless at Italtitnore
next year, he will lose no opportunity to present to the members and
their friends the advantages of Oregon, and more especially of Clacka
mas County. That his efforts will meet with success we have no doubt,
and much benefit will accrue to Claekamas County by having one of its
officers in such a prominent place.

Mr. Cooler believes that the Republi

Tiikbe is no better argument for a
double track all the way between Oregon
City and Portland on the line of the
Portland City & Oregon Railway than

railway company to do all within its
power to prevent a repetition of such ac

eerious and far reaching in its conse
quences. A rnotorman is disabled for
life. He will never be able to work
again. He has a wife and four children
in almost destitute circumstances. The
case is a pitiful one and has aroused the
sympathy of all.
The legislative ticket in this county
should be elected. It is an important
matter in many ways. The election of
a United States senator is of first im
portance not only to the county and
state but to the nation. Questions of
vital interest to this coast and to the
farmers of this county will have to be
settled by the aid of the senator elected
next winter. The question of whether a
market is to be made in the Philippines
and China depends on the attitude of
the United States towards those coun
tries. The senate can foster these trade
relations or put up a barrier that will
shut off all trade to the great detriment
of this coast. Next Monday when you
wish to vote for your own interest vote
for the Republican legislative ticket.
day the Cubans are free and independ

be had they won freedom from Spain
without American tutelage. As with
Cuba so with the Philippines; the Fili
pinos as a whole are less capable of self
government than the Cubans; when we
shall have established free government
there, they will be better off than could
be possible without tha protection the
United States affords all tha rautings
of democracy to the contrary.

people appreciate Its "independent bus!

In your support of a candidate for
county clerk see that you support a com
petent man and not one that makes the
costly mistakes that Cooper done.
Cooper coet the county about $2000 in
the one mistake of certifying to the cost
of bridges built in the county the past
year. He put it at nearly $33,000 and
there is not another person in the
county that bas given it any attention
but knows better, even if he did not have
the records to find out. Cooper, with the
records in his control and keeping them,
made this bridge account only about
$22,000 too latge and this increased our
state taxes by a tnug sum.

A Minister's Mistake.
A city minister was recently handed a
notice to be read from his pulpit. Accom
panying it was a clipping from a newspa
per bearing upi n the matter. 1iM
clergyman started to read tbe extract
and found that it began "Take Kemp's
Balsam, the best Cough Cure."
This was hardly what he had expected
and, after moment's hesitation, he tur
ned it over, and found on tbe other side
the matter intended for the reading.
A woman who has bad experience
with this disease, tells how to prevent
any dangerous conseijuences from it.
Khe says: Our three children look
whooping cough last summer, our baby
boy being only three months old, and
owing to our giving them Chamberlain's
Cough Kemedy, they lost none of their
plumpness and came out In much better
health than other children whose parents
did not uho this remedy. Our oldest
littlogirl would call lustily for cough
syrup between whoops. Jessio Pinkey
