STAND BY EDUCATION.
Certain countries of Europe possess
a double headed school system. There
Is a crowded and insufficient course
up to twelve years of age for the
children of the farmer and the work
lngman ; who then leave and go to
work; for the children of the so-called
npper-clas3. there is a long and com
plete course of study made so expen
sive that none but the children of the
rich may avail themselves of It Is
It surprising that in these countries
the working men and farmers do not
get their rights? The classes who
have the training and knowledge in
evitably control the nation. Do we
want such a condition following in
Oregon? . Jefferson and the fathers of
1787 foresaw this danger and laid the
foundations of the present system
which provides free common-school
education up to fourteen years of age,
free high school education until eigh-
teen years of age and after that free
University education for those who
are prepared for it In this way, thor
ough training is the monopoly of no
one class as in Europe. As a matter
of fact a large percentage of the stu
dents in state institutions are children
of poor men. many of whom earn their
way through. In the University of
Oregou more than half the men belong
to this class. Yet a dastardly attempt
ia being made to cripple the institu
tion in Oregon which stands for the
thorough equipment of every boy and
girl of ability, regardless of wealth or
MATTER OF REGRET.
The absolute suplneness of Congress
in failing to extend the parcels post
and establish postal savings banks
must be an occasion of regret to every
loyal Republican. Constant complaint
is being made of the great expense of
the postal service and especially of
the rural routes. Postmaster General
Meyer has pointed out that the reason
rural routes and indeed the entire ser
vice, do not pay is because Congress
refuses to authorize these natural and
profitable extensions which would im
mensely benefit the people and would
injure no one, but a few bankers and
the express companies have long en
joyed an unwarrantable monopoly and
have mulucted the people mercilessly.
If Speaker Cannon could be prevailed
upon to let the House express itself
on these subjects the legislation would
go through with a rush.
SUPPORT YOUR SCHOOLS.
The eyes of hundreds of Grangers
were opened at Eugene when they
saw the splendid work that is being
done by the University of Oregon.
This institution should be Oregon's
pride and its support is necessary.
The cry that it is a rich man's school
is not true, for the editor of this
newspaper was fortunately able to at
tend school there, and if it had been
a rich man's school, he would have
The tendency to frown upon the ad
vancement of education In Oregon is
viewed with regret Men with earn
est purpose are working for the es
tablishment of a high school in Clack
amas, that will enable every child in
the county to procure a better educa
tion, yet there are people who are
shortsighted and are trying to array
Oregon City against the county and
are urging the voters to kill the meas-
ure. We cannot have too many edu- j
cational institutions in Oregon and j
the common school is only a stepping j
atone to something better.
The last week of the campaign Is
close at hand and prospects for Re
publican success are mere than bright.
The fact that Oregon will sound the
gun for the whole nation In anticipa
tion of the Presidential election will
impel the Republicans of Clackamas
County to vote their ticket straight
from top to bottom. Another good
reason that Is appealing strongly to
the Republicans is the fact that de
feat of Republican nominees will have
a tendency to deal a death blow to
the primary nominating system and
cause a return to boss rule and con
ventions. The direct primary is on
trial this year and its perpetuation do
ponds largely on the success or fail
ure of the Republicans to support their
There is every indication that
Clackamas County Republicans aro
going to stand faithfully by their nom
inees. There is a noticeable effort
being made In some localities to dls
credit the candidates for sheriff, as
sessor and commissioner, and the
Democrats have no hope of electing
any of their candidates except Beatlo,
Jack and Smith, and they are moving
every wheel to persuade good Repub
licans to forsake their party nominees
and vote for Democrats, on the old
worn out plea that there should be
no politics in elections, and that it is
a fine thing to divide np the offices,
Republicans however, have been vic
tims of this game before, and aro bul
let proof against the blandishments of
The attendance at the Republican
meetings in most cases has been over
average aud great interest Is being
taken. The candidates for county of
fices have been this week adresslng
the voters at Mullno, Macksburg,
Clackamas and Killin. Tonight they
go to Boring and tomorrow talk at
Highland and Molalla. Tho itinerary
for next week follows: Canby, Mon
day; Sandy. Tuesday; Damascus,
Wednesday; Beaver Creek, Thursday;
Two years ago tho Democrats start
ed out to elect their nominees for
clerk and sheriff, but dissentlon arose
and after the election was over, How
ard Latourette, the Democratic can
didate for clerk, openly accused mem
bers of his party of trading hi moff
and throwing him down for Mr. Beatle.
Information has reached The Enter
prise from country precincts that ev
ery effort Is being made through trad
ing to accomplish the election of Bea
tle, Jack and Smith, but the Republi
cans have their eyes open to the
The coming election will be from
one standpoint the most critical in
the history of Oregon. All the other
states in th union will look to the elec
tion returns on the second of June to
see how the initiative and refereudum
work3 in practice. If the results show
that this new method of legislation
leads to safe and conservative law
making, that the safety of essential
state interest and institutions are
thereby safeguarded, we may look to
the rapid adoption of direct legislation
throughout the country. But if the re
turns show that the majority of the
people are too indifferent to express
themselves at the polls, then other
communities will undoubtedly pause
and the progress of direct legislation
will be jeopardized.
The ballot at the coming election
will be an amazing sheet of paper.
The initiative and referendum amend
ments take up nearly half of the bal
lot space, though set in the finest
type, and it Is safe to say that few
voters will be able to wade through
this mess understanding. The very
last thing is the Prohibition amend
ment, but it is not last in the minds
of the saloon keepers and their
friends, nor in the minds of the men
who are working every minute to
place Clackamas In the dry column.
No man Is a good Republican who
declines, without reason, to support
his party ticket, or any part of it He

Is not. Long memories ia politics may

The Oregou delegation to the Na
tional Retail Grocers' Association Just
; adjourned at Boston, won a signal vic
tory In securing the 1909 convention
I for Portland. When one considers

HUNTLEY DELEGATE TO
CLACKAMAS COUNTY MAN WILL
GO TO CHICAGO TO HELP
Republicans aro congratulating C.
G. Huntley over his election by tho
Republican State Convention as a
dolegate-at-large to the national con
vention which meets next month at
Chicago. Mr. Huntley was enthu
siastically endorsed and warmly sup
ported by the delegation of 11 men
from Clackamas County and the fact
that they worked heartily for his elec
tion had a great deal to do with the
result. Mr. Huntley, while a com
paratively young man, has been deep
ly Interested In Republican success in
Clackamas county for many years. Ho
served three consecutive terms In the
state legislature, being one of tho
very few men to be elected to a third
term from Clackamas County, where
there is seemingly a deep rooted pre
judice against third terms. Mr. Hunt

In tho fight for re-election by the lat
ter, and he is showing his consistent
Republicanism by working for the
election of H. M. Cake, as against a
Democrat. Clackamas County has
been fortunate in obtaining a dele
gate to the national convention this
year, as Representative James U.
Campbell was a national delegate
four years ago.

Scores cf Oregon City people can
tell you about Doan's Kidney Pills.
Many a happy citizen makes a public
statement of his experience. Here Is
a case of It. What better proof of
merit can be had than such endorse
ment? Theodore Heurth, living at Park
place, about two miles from Oregon
City, Ore., says: "I found Doan's Kid
ney Pills do Just what is claimed for
themm. For a long time I suffered a
good deal with lameness and aching
over the kidneys and irregularity of
the action of the kidneys. The trouble
was not severe enough to lay me up,
but was very annoying and made it
difficult for me to stoop or lift any
thing without my back paining me. I
was induced to try Doan's Kidney Pills
from the recommendation of a friend,
and went to Huntley Bros.' drug store
for them. Their use absolutely re
moved the trouble with the kidneys,
strengthened my back and in every
way proved your remedy to be worthy
of all confidence."
