Personal popularity counts for much
In elections, and this Is truly shown
by an examination of the returns from
Clackamas County. We have Sheriff
Beatie, with a majority of more than
1000 In an acknowledged Kepuoucan
stronghold. We find J. E. Jack, Dem
ocratic candidate for assessor, with
a majority of nearly BOO. and George
Chamberlain victorious over Cake by
S34- The reason is in the personal
nonularity of the men.
The Republicans who always vote
the straight ticket may find cold com
fort in the fact that Beatie and Jack
are both men of sterling qualities and
will make good officials. Beatie has
made a good record during the two
years he has been sheriff and the ar
gument that he was entitled to a
second term did him good. If Mr.
Jack is succesful in the same meas
ure, he Is then sure of eight years in
the assessor's office, which Is not so
bad as it might be.
Some of the Republicans polled a
fine vote, but they did not run against
men of any considerable strength The
Republican nominees for clerk, treas
urer, school superintendent and sur
Teyor had no Democratic opposition.
Mr. Holman, for coroner, has a plur
ality of 376, although a vicious fight
was made against him, and his re-election
is an endorsement of his economi
cal record. Mr. Mattoon bore the
brunt of a hard campaign, for there
. -were Republican office holders array
ed against him, and the same was
true of Mr. Moody who went down to
But the men who are called good
fellows received the big vote, and the
Republicans who were elected will
make no better officials than would
the men who were not successful. The
fortunate ones simply had no opposi
tion worthy of mention and carried
their party vote or a large portion of
The lesson is plain, but it has been
preached to deaf ears In Clackamas
County and In Oregon. Let this con
dition continue and we shall have a
Democratic county by degrees. Two
years ago we had no Democratic of
fice holders. Now we have three, and
In two years we may have a few more
and the Republicans, or the men who
pose as such, may well stand by and
watch the rapid disintegration of their
party, once all powerful, but now suf
fering a painful decline.
The direct primary law will stand a
few amendments, but who will be
brave enough to suggest them. It is
satisfactory to the largest degree to
every Democrat, and it Is pleasing to
the men who are so selfish that they
will play the dog in the manger and
because they will not allow a plurality
vote in the party to rule in the pri
maries. The medicine, my friends, is
OUR COMMERCIAL CLUB.
The Enterprises hopes to be able
to announce in its next week's issue
that the organization of a Commercial
Club in Oregon City is a fact. The
town has been looking on for several
years while our brothers and sisters,
Albany, Eugene, McMinnville, Corval
lis and others have pushed themselves
into the public notice and through the
medium of the press as well as the
clubs have had more than local pro
minence in the public eye.
John Hartog, manager of the Eu
gene Commercial Club, said that Ore
gon City has ten chances to succeed
through the formation of a Commer
cial Club where Eugene has one. And
John Hartog Is right, as be usually
is. Show us a town with th natural
advantages of Oregon City. Show us
a city of like population with a pay
roll like ours. Show us such a magnl
cently situated place, with an (im
mense water power and factories em
ploying 1000 people. Show us this
place, and we will show you a town
that is ahead of Oregon ICty, and
Because they boost. Because they
spend money for publicity. Because
they use printer's ink and plenty of
IL Because they make the city at
tractive to the farmers of the country
surrounding. These are the things
that make a healthy and progressive
Oregon City has her chance, and
she certainly will not turn it down
this time. The plan of organization
is the only right one, and the social
features of the Commercial Club will
do much to retain the interest of its

The town needs a Commercial Club, '
and every merchant and business man
should hunt up the promoters of tha
plan and ask to be enrolled. Don't
hang back. Push the proposition
along and Incidentally help yourself.

Important work wisely and carefully
performed and a confidence that a vast

IT IS A DIRTY FARCE.
Some three years ago, more or less,
says the Oregonlan, ltlnger Hermann
was indicted by an Oregon grand jury.
on accusation of complicity In land
frauds. The country has been wait
ing for the proofs. A continuous
stream of insinuation has come out of
the detective and other official ser
vice to the effect that there was "hot
stuff" about Hermann. The newspa
pers have been supplied with it, in
Oregon, at Washington, and more or
less throughout the country. But Her
mann has not been brought to trial.
Is there. In reality, any proof against
him? Or Is this nu industrious pro
ceeding, on the part of detectives, and
prosecuting attorneys, to make it ap
pear that they have been earning thei
The same about Senator Fulton.
There has been an infinite amount
of talk against him, in official circles.
Heney made long speeches against
him. Officials of the Department of
Justice, here and at Washington, have
been giving out w-hispers for years
that "they had the dope on Fulton";
that he was subject to indictment, and
that terrible things were to be told
and revealed. But they never do any
thing but utter cowardly and malici
ous insinuations, telling the people
through the newspapers that awful
revelations are coming. "We can't tell
much now, but there be those that
could tell an' they would; Just wait"
The Oregonian thinks that both Mr.
Hermann and Mr. Fulton have waited
long enough, and that the public has
waited long enough. We now believe
that Mr. Hermann never will be
brought to trial, and that no distinct
charges ever will be formulated
against Mr. Fulton. This dirty and
cowardly business Is now about at anias ln tne Drea(1 niade uy different wo-
