WILL THEY SIGN?
Watching Benton Legislative Candi
dates and Statement No. 1.
let the people select their man for
senator,: he should be dropped like
a hot potato.- He won't do."
ALL WERE THERE.
Big Time at Monroe Speech
es and Music and Banquet
There is more or less local inter
est in the question of what the Ben
ton candidates for the legislature
are going to do with reference to
"statement No. i." The provision,
as everybody knows, is a plan to
settle at the June election, the ques
tion of what man shall be elected
senator, leaving the matter of le
gally electing him to the session of
tb'pgislature. In "statement No.
i" the legislative candidate prom
ises that he will vote in "the legisla
ture for that candidate who receives
the largest vote at the June elec
tion. The plan makes it absolutely easy
to eliminate the senatorial deadlocks
and hold ups that have . debauched
every legislative session that has
been held in Oregon for a dozen
years. If a majority of the repub
lican members elected to the legis
latnre sign "statement number i,"
and, when they go to the legisla
ture, stick to it, ft will take just one
day, and no more, for the legisla
ture to elect a senator.- Before
hand, ar at the Tune election, the
people themselves will have decided
by popular vote which one ot the
candidates in the field they desire
. the legislature to elect, and all that
will Im necessary to complete the
job will be for the legislature to rat
ify the people's choice by legally
electing the . leading candidate to
NOT TO SIGN MEANS SQUABBLE.
If, on the other hand, the legis
lative candidates do not sign "state
ment No. i," the vote in June will
become a mere mockery and at the
legislative session there will be the
usual and inevitable senatorial row
with 40 days of corruption, graft,
boodle and barter. It rests almost
wholly with the people as to wheth
er or not they will select the sena
tor, or continue to leave the matter
to the legislature. If the people
agree among themselves to select
the senator, nothing can stop them
trom doing it, lor in that event no
legislative candidate could be elect
ed who would not abide by the pop
ular choice as expressed at the bal
It is not known what attitude the
-; legislative-candidates of Benton are
going to assume with 'reference to
"statement No. 1." So far, there
are no democratic candidates for
either state senator or representa
tive. On the republican side it is
common report that A. J. Johnson,
of Corvallis and E H Belknap, of
Bellfountain, will later be announced
as candidates for senator, and that
Joe Edwards, of Bellfountain, Ma
rion Hay den, of Alsea, and
Carter of Wells, will be candidat
for nomination to the house of rep-1
resentatives. Report doe? not j
- credit either of the above named as '
. having announced his atttitude on j
the subject of "statement No. 1."
WHAT A -CITIZEN SAYS.
A well-kDown citizen discussing
the subject yesterday, said, "It
would be a strange attitude, indeed,
for a man to be willing for the com
mon herd to elect him to the legis
lature but not be willing for them
to select the man for United States
senator. If the common psople have
sense enough to elect a state rena
tor, or representative or a governor,
they certainly have sense enough
to select a man for senator. . Of
course all kinds of excu.es are 2-
ing brought forward to prevent men j
from adhering to "statement No.
1," but that mfins bosses, bosses,
bosses." It means that the effort
to rid Oregon of senatorial squab
bels in the legislature through the
primary election lawr is objectiona
ble to certain gentlemen who don't
want the people to say who shall be
senator. It means that somebody
wants a continuation of the old
boodle system, and that probably
for the profit they can make out of
it. The schemes, and traffic and
loot that is worked oh a legislative
session in senatorial deadlocks can
not be worked' on the people, and
that is why various subterfuges are
urged to defeat the new primary
IP CANDIDATE REFUSES WHAT?
The most important thing in thej-
whole busirss is this: Whenever
any legislative candidate shows an
unwillingness to sign "statement
No.i," he is simply looking out
for graft.? r He wants a senatorial
squabble in the legislature. -t'-He
wants a long drawn out contest
with boodle and conuption riot in
the legislative corridors. He wants
to be there with his hands out for
a lump of the corruption fund. He
is not a man to be trusted. andthe
moment he shows unwillingness to 1
