RE-INITES THE PARTY
At a harmonious reorganiiation
of the Republican State Central
Committee in Portland Saturday
it dtn-ided to call a state assembly
to Ik; held in that city July 21st.
The manner of selecting the dele
gates to the assembly decided upon
by the committee will undoubtedly
commend itself to the rank and
file of the party a it leaves their
choosing in the hands of the voters
unhampered. The meeting to se
lect them will be ojx-n to all mem
Wrs of the party ujon whom will
rest the responsibility of sending
delegate to the assembly to repre
sent their wishes. The large num
ber of delegates under the appor
tionment allowed the state at large
outside of Portland insures the
country districts a fair representa
tion. Their failure to get it w ill
rest with these districts depending
upon sufficient interest or lack of
The action in calling the assem
bly re-unites the organization
throughout the state, establishing
it on a basis that is representative
and insuring to it its prestige and
influence in the affairs of the na
tion. Without attempting to ab
rogate the provisions of the pri
mary law its tendency will be to
suggest, provide and support can
didates lest fitted to assume the
duties of political office.
As the Oregonian says, Mr.
Cake's address, on retiring from
the chairmanship of the state Re
publican committee, was excellent
in spirit and matter. It was a
clear and disinterested appeal for
party unity, under the primary
law , with assembly to harmonize
and guide the course of the party,
through fair and just representa
tive action. Mr. Cake's sugges
tions as to constitution of the as
sembly were very fully carried out
by the committee. The Republi
can party can be united on this
basis, and its work carried to suc
cess, or not at all. If this cannot
win, the case is hopeless. "A mere
scramble for office," said Mr.
Cake, "w ith as many platforms as
there are candidates'' and this is
what the go-as-you-please primary
brings forth "is the condition to
which politics of the state have
degenerated." Use of the repre
sentative system, in a broad and
liberal way, is the only remedy
COLUMBIA RIVER IMPROVEMENTS
Improvements to the Columbia
river which will be made possible
in case appropriations for the work
which have been incorporated in
the Rivers and Harbors bill are
allowed, will le far reaching in
their effect. In writing of them
our Portland correspondent says:
"That the Columbia river im
provements fared well in the Riv
ers and Harbors bill now before
congress was the advice received
in Portland this week from the
capitol. A total of $2,163,500 is
proposed to be spent on Columbia
river work and items provided for
in the bill are as follows: Wen
atchee to Bridgeport, 125,000;
Bridgeport to Kettle Falls, $50,000
Celilo to Snake river, $tt0,000; at
The Dalles, $600,000; Cascades
Canal, $,000; Vancouver, $7,500;
below Portland, including Wil
lamette river, $175,000; mouth of
Columbia, $1,200,000; gauging,!
"If this money is appropriated,
ait now seems likely, the improve
ments to the Columbia during the
coming year will be lasting in
their benefits and will be of great
advantage to the whole Pacific
northwest. The work is too im
portant to be claimed as a better
ment by any one state for an open
river from the Inland empire to
the sea will benefit almost every
person liviug in th northwestern
states more or less directly.
"By clearing out the upper river
-team boat navigation will be aided
provement of the channel to the
sea from the Columbia will facili
tate o-ean shipments both to and
from the northwest states.''

A Common Cold
We claim that If catching cold
could be avoided some of the most
Oangifous and fatal dlHeasen would
never lie heard of. A cold often forms
a culture bed for germs of Infectious

the moHt dangerous and fatal tlU
cukcs, are of this cIush. Tbe culture
lied formed by the cold furors the
development of the germs of these
