MINORITY CANNOT RULE.
The action of six members of the
Republican County Central Committee
In attempting to commit the party in
LiacKamas county to Statement No.
is a matter of real regret, not only to
the wiser friends of the Statement,
but to the Republicans who believe In
tne total elimination of the (actional
Birue in the party, and The Enter
prise la in this class. Ruin, or ruin
policy will avail nothing to the men
wno ioaow such a course.
ine- enterprise has no worda of
commendation for John H. Gibson for
opening up the matter by the Intro
duction of a resolution directed at
statement No. 1. but Mr. Gibson did
anow a praiseworthy spirit In with'
arawmg bis offering in the interest
of harmony, and James U. Campbell
was apparentl ythe only cool head on
we noor in tne discussion of the mat
ter. Mr. Campbell is an old hand in
the game of politics and has more
wan once led the Republicans of
Clackamas County to victory. When
the resolution was pulled down, the
matter should have ended, and It did
ena so rar as the opponents of State
ment No. 1 were concerned. There
is not me shadow of excuse for the
men who, supremely conscious of their
voting strength, pushed through a res-
oiuuon Dy a minority vote of the com
There wag no call for the central
committee to enter thla unfortunate
controversy. It has healed no wounds,
dui nas oniy opened up a breach that
has caused the Dempcrats to smirk
with glee. Statement No. 1 adherents
probably consider that the move was
a smart political trick, but time will
demonstrate their error.
Leaving aside the merits of State
ment No. 1, what has been gained?
Can ahy man honestly claim that the
votes of six men and five proxies rep
resent the true sentiment of the Re
publicans of Clackamas County? The
abuse of temporary political power
can only result in the ultimate discom
fiture of the men who use it for per
The Enterprise has no political axe
to grind. Its sole aim is to promote
harmony and to see Republicans in of
fice, where Republican majorities pre
vail. We have only the kindliest feel
ing for Mr. Schuebel and Mr. Dixon,
and we are sorry, indeed, that they
have seen fit to stir up a hornets' nest
that is likely to prove a boomerang.
IT IS TIME TO REGISTER.
Every man in Clackamas County
must register in order to vote at the
primaries. Registration Is proceeding
slowly, and It is apparent that there
will be a shortage in the vote unless
the pace quickens, and that soon. The
i Enterprise desires to call the attention
' of the voters of Clackamas County to
the following, which is Section 38,
page 37, of the laws of 1905:
"No elector shall be qualified to vote,
nor permitted to vote, at any such pri
mary nominating election required by
this law, and it shall be unlawful for
him to offer to do so, unless be shall
be registered, as above required, as a
member of one of the political parties
choosing and nominating its candidates
for public office under the provisions
of this law at such primary nominating

Clackamas County, Bays the Oregon
Ian, Is one of the richest iu tho entire
State In horticultural, agricultural and
stockraising and dairying possibilities.
Its lands Invite settlers In any of these,
the basic industries of the State. Well
woded, well watered, or wide area,
good soil, mild climate and but sparse
ly settled, relatively speaking, the In
tending homebullder of . tho agricul
tural class would have to look far be
fore he could Improve upon the nat
ural advantages to bo found there.
The enterprise of Its citizens Is speak
ing In many ways for the development
of Its resources, and In no way more
effectively than In directing attention
to these advantages. This thoy have
done in recent months through horti
cultural and agricultural fairs, rose
shows, stock and poultry exhibits, by
strawberries placed upon tho winter
market and grapes kept In perfection
until Christmas, and by the exhibition
of a spirit of neighborllness that ap
peals forcibly to homeseekers. Aided
by such agencies, the waste places in
Clackamas County should, In the not
distant future, be dotted with homes
and add their legitimate quota to tho
wealth, prosperity and good citizen
ship of the State.
The slngie-taiers seem to be having
a hard row to hoe. The people are not
reauy tor the new piau ot taxation.
Here in Clackamas the taxes are be

increase in valuations, 'lax laws are

Tbe Republicans of Multnomah,
Lane and Douglas Counties have gone
on record as Opposed to Statement No.
1, and the newspaper accounts of the
conventions do not show that the ac
tion was taken by a minority of the
Republicans. - -
There Is ground for curiosity as to
the purpose of the Hearst Independ
ence League. It was supposed that
Mr. Hearst purposed to organize his
league, hold its annual convention Just
before the Democratic National Con
vention, have it endorse himself for
President and then utilize that en
dorsement in trying to get control of
the Democratic gathering. The Hearst
League has, however, set the date of
its convention later than the Demo
cratic gathering. What, then, does it
all mean? Is It possible that Mr.
Hearst Is playing a farseelng game
with the hope of capturing the Dem
ocracy in 1912? .
