POLITICS OF MARION
OUTLOOK IS THAT ItEPUBLICA"N8
WILL aiAKE CLEA SWEEP.
Opposition Forces Are Divided, and
by Ao Means Enthusiastic A
SALEM, Maj 6. Republican success In
the June election In Marlon County Is as
near an assured fact as an thing political
can be before actual determination. Pro
fessor T. C. Jory, -who is perhaps the
most le el-headed Populist in the county,
or In the state, for that matter, said In
the Populist Count Central Committee
meeting; that the political situation Is
capable of almost mathematical demon
stration. He cited the figures of the elec
tion of two ears ago, when the three
parties opposing the Republicans had
formed a union as perfect as Impossible.
In spite of the close union of forces, the
Republicans won bj decided majorities,
demonstrating that the Republicans can
muster more otes than all other parties
combined. He argued, as an unaioldable
deduction, that. In order to win In the
coming election, the reform candidates
must poll the entire ote of the Demo
cratic. ,Pjjpiist and Sll er-Republlcan
parties, ana must draw a considerable
vote besides from the Republican ranks
Unless they can do that, he said, defeat
It is ery eldent that the reverse of
the conditions prescribed by Professor
Jory is in existence in this countj. The
Sil er-Republican partj, which was of
considerable Importance two years ago,
has broken up, and is nowhere heard of.
Many of Its adherents hae drifted quiet
lj back into the Republican ranks, and
will -vote the Republican ticket in June.
Kelther the Democrats nor Populists are
united within themeehes or with each
other, There was a fight to the finish In
the Democratic count convention, the
fusion Democrats coming off -victorious
Those men who advocated a straight
Democratic ticket feel that the prevail
ing faction has departed from Democratic
principles, and thej will refuse to ac
knowledge themselves bound to support
the ticket in Its entirety. Thej will ote
part of the Democratic ticket, but it Is
certain that there will be few unscratched
Democratic tickets cfist. Then, again,
there are man fusion Democrats as well
as straight Democrats, who will not vote
for the Populist candidates, though they
were ratified by the Democratic County
The Populists are In much the same
condition. Because It was foreseen that
a fusion would be effected, many leading
Populists remained awa from the con
ventlon and committee meetings. They
simply refused to hae anj thing to do
with the partj manipulations, and will
consequents feel free on election day to
vote for the best man In the field, re
gardless of partj affiliations. The Repub
licans this j ear put up the best ticket
they have had in ten jears, and a ticket
composed of men whose ability and in
tegrity are unquestioned The Republic
ans are so well pleased with the ticket
that they have no desire to scratch It.
On the other hand, it will draw many
votes from the other parties
The opposition ticket has many weak
spots in it. The Populists, after seriously
considering the matter for half a day.
refused their Indorsement to the Demo
cratic nominees for Count Clerk, Count
Judge and County Recorder. The best
campaign speaker on the legislative tick

a nomination for the District Attorne

a brother of the professor, declined to

ciple. Jory Is -very highly esteemea

was the ctim of treachery In his own

fact that he had held a Deputyshlp while
there was a demand for a "new deal,"
and that his campaign was poorly man

THE FOREST GROVE CASE.
The Coroner Refer to the Criticisms
and Various Rumors.
FOREST GROVE, Or., May 5. (To the
Editor.) The criticisms regarding the in
quest Into the death of Mrs. Anna C
Hatch are not justified by the facts, ah
a brief review of the caee will show.
The exclusion of the public was -voted
by the Jury after they thought their work
had been hampered b the publication of
their Investigations. Personally, the Cor
oner favored admitting representatives of
the press, but deferred to the unanimous
and decided will of the jury. Whether the
Coroner could or could not Influence the
jur. such is not among the duties of his
office. Investigation was made regarding
the letters of the deceased up to the time
the jur became convinced that Mrs.
Hatch's death was from natural causes;
further inqulr would no doubt have been
appreciated by prurient curiosity, but
would have had no legal warrant. The
bed clothing and garments worn by the
deceased woman were carefully-examined,
and any one acquainted with anaesthetics
must know how rd culoub the statement
that the odor of chloroform could have
been recognized a week after its use. Suf
ficient examination of the remains was
made by three phslclans. That the
stomach was not analyzed was because
the condition of the body made it out
of the question that aro matenal poison
had been used, while any volatile agent
would have leng before been dleelpated.
The heavy cost for a chemical analysis
would have been wholly unjustified. For
five days the Jury probed the matter thor
oughl until fully convinced that no crimo
had been committed, then, under the stat
ute, no reason for further inquest existed.
No doubt many interesting bits of scan
dal may developcrbut that is not a matter
for legal Investigation.
In Its final deliberation, the Jury was
alone and In no way inspired by any
outsider. Attorne McCain's presence was
justified by the presence of Deputy Pros
ecuting Attorney H. T. Bagley. both of
these gentlemen being allowed the cour
tesy of questioning the witnesses to bring
out such additional points as might aid In
arriving at the full truth. In a word. It,
death came from a natural cause. It mat
ters not about any rings or letters or as
to the details of the relations of Mrs.
Hatch and Mr. Fletcher.

WOOD SUPPLY RECEDING
HEAVY DRAFTS OS IT MADE BY
OREGON CITY FACTORH3S.
More Than 50,000 Cords Annually
Consumed Horr Price Has Ad
vancedRoad to Timber.
OREGON CITY, May 6 The Willam
ette Falls Railway Company Is extena
lng Its motor line a mile and a half
further up the TualaUn River from Its
present terminus at the wood camp, to
reach a tract of timber belonging to the
Oregon Iron &. Steel Company. It Is
considered a conservative estimate that
the manufacturing establishments of Ore
gon City use an average of 13) cords of
wood dally, and an old wood contractor
estimates that it takes 7000 cords annually
to supply the needs of private individuals
In the city and Immediate -vicinity. The
contractor who supplies the Crown Paper
Company recelv es $2 75 for the wood de
Uvered where it can be used at the mills.
Of course, the wood used here requires
considerable handling After It Is hauled
to the river bank It must be transferred
to a scow; then it is transferred to the
locks canal, where it Is unloaded and
placed convenient for. use. Wood for pri
vate use brings $2 50 to $3 per cord de
livered. According to the estimates, the
consumption of wood here amounts to.
more than 52,000 cords, putting Into clr
culaUon In this Immediate vicinity annu
ally over $140,000, at the lowest estimate.
Every year Increases the distance for
transporting wood, and owners of lands
conveniently situated get quite a revenue
for stumpage, arjlng from 30 to 50 cents
per tree. A large contractor is now pay
ing 30 cents a tree four miles from the
city. Two cars ago this contractor was
delivering wood in the city at $1 50 per
cord and palng a corresponding low rate
of stumpage. At tnat time he had to rus
tle customers; now the- wood consumers
hunt the dealer. There Is yet plenty of
timber for fuel, but it is not so conv enlent
ly situated as It -was a -very few years
ago, especially In this section where the
consumption Is so great
Field Superintendent E. R. Greenman,
of the State Fish Commission, returned
today from a -visit of inspection to the

River, and found the work progressing

it was late In the season before the racks
were planted, about 200,000 eggs hav'e al
ready been taken. Mr. Greenman made
a careful Inspection of the ground around
the hatchery site, as it is the intention of
the commission to purchase the land and
make this steelhead hatcher- permanent
Although State Fish Commissioner
Reed's deputies hae thus far failed to
secure a conviction of any one for illegal
fishing In the Clackamas River, these of
ficers are diligently patrolling the river
hoping to catch more offenders and secure
direct proof of their guilt In the Hlmler
case, where the Jury failed to convict In
the Justice Court at Clackamas Station.
Friday, the deputies arnounce their ln
tenUon of canning the condemnation pro
ceedings against the seized net and boat
to the Circuit Court. The Hlmlers secured
possession of the boat and net by replevin,
but the deputies assert that the seized ar
ticles are guilty of violating the fish laws
whether the owner of the craft was gulhy
of any offense or not
A number of fishermen say that It is
an unjust discrimination making the
Clackamas River a closed stream, and
justify the attempts to fish In these
waters by the assertion that the statutory
provision regulating this matter is uncon
sUtutlonaL In fact, this Is the argument
made by the attorne s for the defense
before the juries In the Justice Courts.
The sympathy of the people living along
the Clackamas River appears to be with
the fishermen. Many law-abiding form
ers living in the vicinity of the fishing
grounds make bold to assert that the law
is unjust discriminating against certain
sections of Clackamas County, inasmuch
as trey are not permitted to use nets In
catching salmon for their own use.

SOME POLITICAL OPINIONS.
Ideas on the Situation in Oregoa
From Various Sources.
The Democrats of Yamhill County were
not so cavalier in their treatment of the
Populists as in other counties of the state.
The McMInnvile Transcript says ot the
"Bryan ticket" nominated there: "This
Is the third child horn to this conglomeration-
The first was in 1896 and was called
'Bimetallic'; the second in 1S3S named
'Democratlc-Popu 1st Silv er-Republican
and- now this offspring has lost entirely
the genealogy and Is dubbed 'Bryan.
It took fighting grit to bring it about; but
Cal Cooper and Mose Johnson took the
Democratic bull by the horns, and as
hard as Ferguson and Dick Philips
fought fpr the perpetuation of the good,
old. Democratic name the 'party of Jef
ferson and Jackson." It was of no avail.
The Democrats had to "come down off
the roost' and surrender about e erythlng
demanded of them by their compatriots,
except the nomination of Houck for Sher
IC." The Ontario Advocate thus expresses
Its Idea of the Portland situation: "Mayor
Storey, of Portland, like all others of
his ilk, insists upon hanging onto his of
fice because the salary 'looks good to
him. The Republicans concluded to have
someone else, and so refused to nominate
him- The same 'old Story " will, be in
evidence just the same; for he has man
ufactured a party of hl3 own and calls
It the Independent Republican party of
Portland. The Democrats ought to win
out again this ear on tne priclple that
honest men can get their rights when
rorues fall out"
The Ashland Tidings says: "Ugly re
ports of a 'now element introduced Into
politics come to Ashland. The employ
ment of outlying district school teachers
as political strikers for candidates dis
plays a shameless prostitution of the pub
lic school service, and one which the
people, irrespective of party affiliation,
will not tolerate It should be stamped
out and that quickly."
True courtesy could scarcely go far
ther than was shown by William Doyle In
the following- notice published in the Port
Orford Tribune: "Having been nominated
by the Democratic Convention of Curry
County for the office of County Treasurer,
I hereby withdraw as such candidate, in
favor of William S Wlnsor, who- Is more
suited for the position. Thanking the
Convention, I am," etc
There Is not a word of truth In the
statement that the chairman of the Re
publican County Central Committee has
emplojed notary publics to canvass Baker
City and register only Republicans, say3
the Republican But In any event it ia
the duty of Chairman Lachner to see
that Republicans are registered. The sys
tem adopted by the Fuslonlsts in this
country Is to send out an ex-saloon-keeper
and proprietor of a gambllng-hou3e In
Sumpter and candidate for Sheriff on the
Fusion ticket, armed with a notary com
mission, to register all of his political
faith In the county. He Is going over
the county driving a fine team and sit
ting In a handsome buggy to tell the tax
ridden, farmers how to vote.
The Tillamook Headlight says that it's
enough to make a jayhawk Iauch when
being told that some of the ynterrifled
Democrat expect some assistance from
the disgrunted Republicans who cannot
control that party longer in this county,
especially In the election of a joint Rep
resentative. As far as the Headlight la
concerned, our unterrlfled Democratic
friends are quite welcome to any assist
ance they may receive from that quar
ter, but we would advise them not to
place too much confidence in politicians
who, having failed to pull the legs of the
Republican party this year, are now
wanting to elongate that of the unterrl
fled. In fact, any old thing of a lee
