Official Paper of Benton County,
OR TALUS, OREGON, FEB. 85, 1903.
When a joint assembly of a
publican legislature in Oregon,
jects Harvey W. Scott for the sen
atorship, the spectacle is akin to
amazing. It is no disparagement
of Mr. Fulton to say that Mr, Scott
has done more for the republican
party in Oregon than has any score
of men in it. For forty years his
great ability has been spent in the
promotion of republicanism, and
in converting disciples to its faith.
He has not only given the best
years of his life to the party, but
he has, in addition laid at its feet
a great newspaper with which its
battles have been fought and its
victories won. It is a fact so pat
ent as to be beyond cavil, that to
the work of Mr. Scott and his Ore
conian is due the fact that within
twenty five years, Oregon has been
transformed from a democratic into
a cure rermblican state. The char
acter that ,he has stamped on
that newspaper has been such that
it "hue P-yprfpd a commanding in-
flnpfv that has been effective in
drawing recruits to the republican
party.- It is unquestionably true
that if, through all these years, Mr,
Smtt had elected to conduct his
newspaper in the interest of dem
ocracy, the republicans in the state
would be in the minority, and that
in the places of many of those re
publican members who repudiated
lim for senator, there would have
been democrats. It is wholly and
practically probable that but for the
implements of war that Mr. Scott
has constantly kept in the hands
of the republicans ot Oregon, the
senator elected by the late joint as
sembly would have been, not a re
publican, but a democrat. ,
Indeed, whatever of prestige the
republican party has in the state,
. whatever of preferment its partis
ans enjoy, Mr. Scott and his paper
gave them. Whatever loaves they
have divided, his toil and talents
supplied. If ever there was a con
dition in which a party organiza
tion from sheer gratitude was in
debted to an individual, it is mani
festly, signally and unquestionably .
true in the case of Mr. Scott. His
brain, his canital. the 'influence of
his paper, his life-work until he
has. reached that period in his
career where reward is already long
overdue all these have been un
complainingly and constantlyllaid at
the feet of republicanism in Ore:
gon. A , reasonable regard for the
service he has rendered his party
in the state,, should, when his name
was presented as a candidate at
Salem, have .dictated his election by
an ; enthusiastic and unanimous
vote. ,-! ' i
Of other considerations that ren
dered the rejection of Mr. Scojt
surorisine. there are many. A
senatorship is not merely for the
securing of bounty from govern
ment for communities, but for com
batting and solution,, of intricate
and -weighty problems,, national and
international. It is : not for the
bestowal of .patronage upon favor
ite supporters, but for nice ad
justment of the relations ,of .so
ciety so far as legislation, cpn order
them, so that the greatest good
may come to the greatest number.
It is not for yielding obeisances and
support to measures because the
party boss orders it for partisan ad
vantage, but for shaping and mould
ing nationaljpolicies for the nation's
highest good and the welfare and
glory pf all the people. It is com
mon knowledge that in all these re
quirements the veteran Oregon
journalist would have been, in the
completest sense, a senator, the
peer of the best, and an honor to
Oregon might have made a far
worse selection than Charles W.
Fulton for senator. The fact that
he is a resident of Astoria in no
sense unfits him for the place.
There was never any merit in the
contention of the Multnomah dele
gation that the fact that he resided
out of Portland made him objection
able. That was only the sharp ruse
of politicians who desired his defeat
for the reason that they wanted
some other person elected. -
The fact that Portland already
has one senator, eliminates any
claim she may have for another.
Indeed, there is much of Oregon
outside of Multnomah county and
it is not out of reason that, both
senators might with perfect justice
be chosen from other parts of the
In his speech of acceptance, Mr
Fulton promised that he would
prove to the Multnomah delegation
that he would do Portland full jus
tice. That pledge, he will keep.
It will be his desire and his purpose
to keep it. It will be his business
to keep it for not to do so, is to in
vite political annihilation. , .
. ' Besides he is the sort of a man
to perform his pledges. He has
good ability, he is declared to be
scrupulously honest, and ; will un-.
doubtedly render the state that has
honored him so highly, the very
best service that lies within his

David Howard, known to many
Sbout town as a wood sawyer, is in
the insane asylum. He is the man
who was burned out. of house and
home last summer, and whom con
tributions of citizens and insurance
money enabled to rebuild.
He was taken to the asylum
Saturday. He has been in poor
health for two or three months past,
so much so, that most of the time
he has been unable to work. Thurs
day, suspicion was directed to his
case, when Howard called at Dil
ley's and wanted to buy a revolver.
It so happened that . two years
ago Howard talked to Dilley about
killing himself. Dilley remember
ed the incident, and when he asked
forV it Thursday, the weapon was
refused Howard. The question of
suicide came up at the time and
Howard, after explaining that, the
pistol was wanted for killing a dog,
said he himself might as well be
dead, that his family - would be
better off by reason of the $2000
they would get from the Modern
Woodmen, of which he is a mem
ber. He was lectured earnestly on
the subject of his supposed inten
tions by Mr Dilley and Joseph
Yates, during the half hour that he
remained in the establishment.
- The next heard of . Howard's
suicidal predilections was the: fol
lowing day, when Rev. Moses ap
peared before the county judge and
entered a complaint that the man
was insane. It seems that early
Friday morning Howard had ap
peared on the river bank near the
ferry, where he had pulled off his
coat and for a time seemed -, to be
about to jump in. Apparently
changing his mind he put on his
coat and left, but about 10 o'clock
returned. Again he pulled, off his
coat and seemed about to jump in,
when a second time he determined
on another course. This time he
went straight to Rev. Moses- and
told him that he was going to com
mit suicide; that he had already
been down on the bank of the river
for the purpose of jumping in, but
while there he had determined to
go and shake hands with his rev
erend friend, before taking the
leap. The entry ef-fhe complaint,
an examination as to sanity, and
the comittment to ' the asylum re: ,
suited. Save in the particulars setrl

was a grand success. An excellent

their enterprise arid public spirit by

Jit eerbard,
An editor, who promised to tell
the truth in just one issue, of his
oaoer wrote uo a wedding as fol
lows: MarriedMiss Sylva Smith
and James Cranahan last Saturday
at the Baptist parsonage. The
bride is a very ordinary girl about
town who doesn't known any more
than a rabbit" about cooking, and
never helped her poor mother three
days in her life, and is not a beauty
bv a lone shot, and has a gait like
a duck. The groom is known as
an up-to-date loafer, and has been
living off his mother all his life,
and don t amount to , anything no
how. They will have " a' tough
time of it, and , we withhold con
gratulations for we don't believe
any good can come from such
An hour after the paper came
out the editor met the bride's broth
er on the street. He got both eyes
blacked and lost half an ear in that
encounter. On the next corner he
met her father, but "heine out of
condition, sued for peace. But
there was no peace. . The father's
voice was for war, and the editor
retired from that scrap with seven
teeth and the end of his nose mis
Then a feeling stole over him
that there was no place like home
and with the best haste that he
could summon under the circum
stances he hurried to seek shelter
under his own vine and fig tree.
It was the bride, backed up by
her mother, the groom's mother
and thirteen female sympathizers
that met him at the next corner.
They were armed with brooms,
scissors, pokers, kettles of hot
water, which they brandished and
flourished as they approached.
"Oh! you blackmailer; you liar;
you villian; you horse thief," he
heard them say. But the spectacle
was too much for him. He knew
it was useless to hoist the white
flag and sue for peace in the pre
sence of that kind of foe, and with
a glance Heavenward ana a prayer
on his -lips for forgiveness for hav
ing once told the truth in his paper,
he sank to earth in a dead swoon.
When the ladies had finished,
all that was left of the wayward
editor was hauled home in a wheel
The p :per did not come out the
next week. A note on the door re
lated that the editor was confined
at home with a very severe cold,,
but that it would be out as usual
next week. - .
And so it was. And the leading
article said that on account of great
haste in eoing to press in a former
I issue, and by reason of certain ty
pographical errors, grave blunders
had been made with reference to the
wedding of Miss Sylva Smith and
Mr James Cranahan: "'This love-!
ly and fortunate couple," the paper
continued, ' 'are a son and daughter
in two of our most distinguished
and wealthy families, the bride be
ing a most estimable and popular
young lady and a leader and fav
orite in social circles. ;The groom
is one of our tnost talented young
business men and there is general
rejoicing over the union - of this
most fortunate young couple."
