JUDGE PARKER'S TELEGRAM. , ;
If Judge Parker's telegram to the
St. Louis convention doesn't put
him in the White House, it ought
to. It gives himja characterization
for honesty and candor . that ' the
words of his eulogists in their nom
inating and seconding speeches
were powerless to, paint. His coun
trymen know, now, from his own
act, that he is no humbug, no strad-
dler. no mountebank, but a man of
stern and nigged truth. I regard
the goldstandard as firmly and irrevo
cablyestablished" he wired, and shell
act accordingly, if the action of the
convention of today shall ; be rati
fied by the people, As the plat.
form is silent on the subject, my
views should be made known to the
convention, and it it proves un
satisfactory to the convention, I re
quest you to decline the nomination
for me at once, so that another may
be nominated before adjournment."
The convention was yet in ses
sion. The telegram might mean
the withdrawal of the nomination,
and its bestowal on another. To
Alton B Parker, it might j jnean
loss of the coveted nomination of a
great party lor a great office. - It
might mean the loss a term at the
head of the American nation, the
proudest place that is allotted on
thia earth to a mortal. But for all
this, the New York iurist. by his
bold act, refused to be a party to
ruse or deception. Otherwise stat
ed,, his famous telegram is, "I
would rather be honest with my
party and honest with my country
try men, than be president." No
political incident of the present or
past time is so eloquent of the. rug
ged virtue of the man who stood as
its central and masterful figure.
Accused of . silence, Alton B
Parker has spoken, and in a way to
carry -unquestioned .conviction to
the hearts of his countrymen. The
two sentences of his telegram are a
potential utterance in his behalf,
not for what they say, but because
of the time, the method, and. the
matchless motive for their saying.
THE MISSING MONEY PLANK.
1 he bt. Louis convention very
properly treated the money ques
tion as a dead issue, and made no
reference to it in the platform. The
country is on the gold standard, the
gold standard is "firmly and irre
vocably established and will so
remain as; long. as the senate re
mains overwhelmingly republican,
even were the democratic party 'a
,ipit against it, which it is not, and
never was. Indeed, with gold j
flowing from the Alaskan and oth
er mines into the channels of busi
ness in an unprecedented stream,
there is not the occasion or need
that there was for the use of silver
as standard money. The demo
cratic contention was never for a
money of particular color, but for
, a greater volume of it. This -volume
has, as an effect ot gold discover
ies increased from about $24 to ov
er $31 per capita, or ' about 30 per
cent and this, with the advantage
that has inured to business, with
legislation permanently establishing
the gold standard, and with two
verdicts of the people on the. sub-
iect, has effectively killed the fin
ancial question as an issue. No
body complains at the absence of a
monev plank from the St. Louis
platform except leaders of the op
position who hoped the democrats
would resurrect the ancient money
corpse and use it as a club with
which to beat out democratic brains.
The St. Louis convention was wise,
in more ways than one.

THE SMALLPOX CASES,
To the Westward As Told by Philo
mite Doing Well now.
Mention was made in Saturday's
Times of the smallpox case in which
MrJ Hawkins, of the vicinity of
Philomath, figured. The story of
Hawkins and Speedie is thus told
by a Philomath correspondent:' Mr.
Hugh Hawkins, who has been work
ing at the Benton County Lumber !
Company's mill, took sick July ist
after a hard days work in the sun
and supposing his sickness; to be
due to being overheated, laid off un
til after the Fourth. On July 5th a
physician in Corvallis was consulted
and pronounced the case smallpox
aud the chief of police ordered him to
return ; to the mill, where he was
working. ' He did not want to in-
tect the mill crew, so consulted an
other physician who said it was not
smallpox. He then, in company
with Peter Speedie of Philomath,
went to Albany, where the authori
ties arrested them and put them
both to sleep in the same, bed, and
then turned tbeta loose on their
promising to eov home.. v They did
not wish to carry the infection to the
mill, so Went into the woods west of
Philomath and- hired a man to get
them a horse and supplies so they
could go to some unfrequented place
in the mountains and camp out un
til -Mr.- Hawkins was well.: Mr,
Speedie sent for a physician and was
vaccinated and got ready to go with
Mr. Hawkins. ; - But the county au
thorities hearing of it, . quarantined
tham at a cabin two miles .west of
Philomath where they , are faring
very well. The county is furnishing
supplies for them to camp with and
several ladies in Philomath have
sent them cooked provisions. 2 5 --
There are. quite a number of peo
ple in Albany, Coryallis and Philo
math who wens exposed whils.Mr,
Hawkins was traveling round, the
country, but it is hoped that the di
sease was not far enough advanced
to be communicated to others. Mr.
Speedie who was forced to sleep with
Mr. -Hawkins at, Albany : being
promptly vaccinated, it is hoped that
the disease will not spread..

" VICTOR P. MOSES, ,
-.-i . '-. Clerk.
By J. F. Irwin, Deputy. ;
. At the kommers of the Borussia
student corpi, which wm held at
Bonn, EmpeTor William, who was
present referred in a speech to the
empress of Germany, who witnessed
the kommers from the gallery of the
building-. Alluding to the presence of
his wife, the emperor said:
"The chroniclers record that when
our forefathers met in tournaments
it was perfectly natural that a circle
of illustrious ladies should ' witnesa
their deeds and with pride the victor
received the wreath presented by a
lovely hand. It was thus also atWart -burg,
when they seized the harp and
lyre and sang in competition.
"Never before,, so lohjr as the hia
tory of German. universities has been
written, has any university received
such an honor a is conferred to-day
upon that of Bonn. In company with
the beauty of Bonn and surrounded
by ladies of princely rank, her majes
ty, the empress, the first princess of
the land, has appeared at a students
kommers. This unprecedented honor
has been accorded to the city of Bonn
and to the Borussia student' corps.
I hope and expect that all the young
members oT the Borussia corps upon
whom the eye of , the. empress has
rested to-day have received an inspira

for a strong salamandr for her majes

A. L. McFadden Goes to the Courts for
Damages Ten Thousand Asked.
A. L. McFadden has gone to the
courts for redress for the damages
sustained in the false charge of for
gery recently brought against him
in the Multnomah county court by
J. B, TillotsQTK It will be rememb
ered that in the latter case the jury
was out only long enough to make
Up a verdict of acquittal, and that
when the result of . the first ballot
was ascertained there was loud ap
plause among thejurymen. 1" In de
fending himself; against Tillotson's
charge, Mr. McFadden was at large
expense, besides the . damage sus
tained in a prosecution of which
he was not guilty. He has brought
suit for-damages "in 'the- -sum . of
$10,483. . The facts relative to the
case arejhus told in a dispatch to
the balem Journal:
A suit for $19,438 for false ar
rest ana imprisonment was hied in
the state circuit court yesterday by
A. Li McFadden and against J. B,
Tillotson, a well known contractor.
McFadden' was - at onetime em
ployed by lillotson as bookkeeper
and agent . In his j- complaint - he
set forth that he was arrested at
Chitwood, Lincoln county, on Tan
uary 13, 1904 at the instigation of
Tillotson on a charge of unlawfully
forging and mdorsinga bank check,
He was brought to Portland and
connnea in tne city jail, ' and was
released on Si, 000 bail.
The plaintiff says that there was
no probable cause for his arrest or
for the preferment of a charge
against him, and avers that it was
done maliciously and to injure him!
He was tried in the circuit court
and wasx acquitted ; on May 2nd,'
1904 McFadden besides , asking
$10,000 general damages, seeks to
recover $483, which was the cost
