member What the Republican.
Party Hai Done, and IVote
What It Will Do.
Ashamed of Its past, and uncertain of
Its present, the Democratic party stands
before the people with no claim to their
"votes but the vague promises of its future-
The Democrats admit that they
were wrong on the "eternal principle" of
free silver, they admit that a Democratic
administration precipitated the panic of
1893 and caused the financial losses and
ruin and suffering which followed; they
must admit that Democratic administra
tion has been a failure; but they ask the
people to forget the past and give them
one more chance to make a record. They
A proposed amendment to the state
constitution Is to be voted on today.
It Is the Initiative and referendum,
about which there has been much agi
tation In Oregon tor a number of years.
All parties have Indorsed it. It ap
pears the very last thing on the official
ballot. Do not overlook it. If you
favor It and, no doubt, a majority of
electors do mark an X opposite tho
neat compliment to former Hawkeyes who
now live In the land of the Wcbfeet.
Mr. Dolllver laughingly referred to the
objections urged by the Democratic press
against his preaching the doctrine of
Republicanism In Oregon, because he came
from the "effete East." He said:
"You people who came from the
Mississippi Valley, Just think of 'effete'
Iowa! Why, when they wanted a Sec
retary of Agriculture, they called Tama
Jim Wilson, of Iowa; when they wanted
a Secretary of the Treasury, they took
ex-Governor Leslie J. Shaw, of the same
state. The Director of the Mint Is the
Hon. Georjre E. Roberts, of my own
town. The Solicitor of the Treasury
comes from there, too, and while I have
a little prejudice in his favor, I think
we have a fairly good United States Sen
ator from that place. The Speaker of the
United States House of Representatives
Is that battle-scarred old hero, David B.
Henderson, and the Republican leader of
the United States Senate is William B.
Allison, all "from 'effete Iowa. Besides
all these," said Mr. Dolllver, pointing to
himself, "we have a whole lot of ordi
nary plain farmers down there who hold
no office and want none.
"Why, friends, come to think of it,
there is no particular harm in an Iowa
man talking politics In Oregon, for we
have supplied Republican majorities for
all these Northwestern States, and have
60 depleted our voting population by that
process that we can get only about 100,
000 majority now for the Republican tick
et In that state; and I believe that the
vast company of Oregon pioneers who
came from the Hawkeye state to the Pa
cific will not forget at next Monday's
election the training In Republican prin
ciples in Iowa from William B. Allison,
among the living, and Grimes and Kirk
wood, among the dead."
would set aside all principles and forget
the political battle upon petty issues which
are becoming to the demagogue but not
to the statesman.
Upon this subject Mr. Victor B. Dolllver
cpoke in his address at the Marquam
Grand Saturday evening, and his high
ideals of the lines upon which political
contests , should be fought called forth
storms of applause and cheers, which
show that the people have not all been
misled by the appeals to prejudice, resort
ed to by the Democrats.
Mr. Dolllver said that "the Democratic
party always maintains very serious ob
jections to any argument drawn from
their cwn history, or from the history of
the United States. Their cry has always
been, '.Let by-gones be by-gones,' so they
have it In their platforms this year, 'Let
the dead past bury its dead,' and I am
sorry to say that too often have we al
lowed ourselves to be guided by their
objections, emitting from our discussions
not only the record of their party, but
the motives of their political leaders. Less
and less Is heard In these days about the
record of political parties, and more and
more about party promises, and that is
-what the Democratic candidate for Gov
ernor is giving the people of Oregon in
this campaign. It is one of tho astonish
ing features of our current politics that
the Republican party has allowed its ad
versaries to drive It from its historic place
In the public thought of our times. Now
I am willing to admit that there is
strength and merit enough in the present
position and purposes of the Republican
rarty to retain the good-Trill of the Amer
ican people; but it does not seem to me
to be necessary to throw away the shin
ing record of Its great achievements and
fight it out upon the personality of some
petty candidate or the current issues of
the passing hour. The Republican party
is entitled to ell the advantages that
come to It from the historic names and
mighty victories that mark all the years
of Its public service, and, for my part, if
I had to throw away the history, of my
country, shut up the volume that tells
the story of public liberty and the eman
cipation of the slaves, close my eyes to
all the great monuments that mark the
pathway of National development, turn
a deaf ear to these heroic voices that
come to me from a thousand battle-fields,
and from half a million scattered graves
of the Republic In other words, if the
past has no lessons and no inspirations,
and the only question pending before the
public is the personality of candidates, or
the effect of a tariff act upon the cur
rent price of canned goods, I freely con
fess that I could bring neither interest
nor enthusiasm to the work of this cam
paign. The Republican party was not

ELECTION BETTIXG LIVELY.
Big: Water Are Made on Race for
Governor and Mayor.
The election sports were out yesterday
with blood in their necks, fire in their
eyes and cash in their pockets. Not for
many years has a state election been
marked with such liberal betting as has
been manifested during the past week,
and last night brought the enthusiastic
wagers of the sporting fraternity to a
climax. It is estimated that from $30,000
to $35,000 has been placed "even up" on
the Wlllritns-Slmon Mayoralty contest,
and almost an equal amount on the Fur-nlsh-Chamberlain
Schiller's cigar store was the scene of
most of tho betting last evening, and
bets ranging from $5 up to $750 were
placed on the Gubernatorial struggle, and
still larger sums on the race for Mayor.
Both Republicans and Democrats had
plenty of money, and there was a dis
position to go the limit, especially on the
Furnlsh-Chamberlaln race. Crowds of
men and boys stood about the store, and
the excitement became Intense as the
"pieces of money" were launched forth
upon: the counter. A well-known sport
from Umatilla County bet all the money
he had on Furnish carrying the state, and
declared that he would return this morn
ing with "all that the Democrats can
cover." One man bet $333 against $1000
that Judge Williams would be elected by
more than 1000 votes, and a sanguine ad
mirer of "Bob" Inman placed $200 against
$100 that Inman will be the next Mayor.
This plunger evidently has plenty of
coin, for he gave iha stakeholder $20. At
MIsh's cigar store about $2000 has been
placed at "even monej" on the more
Important contests, and a well-known
Third-street firm Is stakeholder of some
$10,000. Little betting has been Indulged
In on any offices outside of Governor and
Mayor, although one enthusiastic indi
vidual offered to bet a hundred to one
that Joe Simon will not be re-elected to
the United States Senate.
TO JUDGES OP ELECTION.
The Oregonlan has addressed letters
to all chairmen of election boards in
Multnomah County asking them to as
sist It In the labor of gathering election
returns. In the City of Portland, spe
cial messengers will call about 11
o'clock tonight at all the precincts, and

born to settle the money question or a
tariff question. It came into life as the
chosen instrument to defend the unity of
this Nation, threatened with treason, and
to save the liberty of the human race,
threatened with slavery.
"Do not misunderstand me. The Repub
lican party has never faltered in its
advocacy and support of sound principles
of economy and finance, and could invite
the judgment of the world to its triumphs
in these fields; but back of all these tri
umphs, settled In the unwavering convic
tion cf earnest men lie the real founda
tlfins of the party that has rallied to Its
standard the great soldiers and statesmen
of the last generation.
"Let us as Republicans keep alive the
influences of those memorable years; let
us hang the pictures of our old leaders
upon the walls of our houses and put
their biographies Into the hands of our
children; let not the history of the United
States become an obsolete text-book, ob
solete out of respect for the feelings of
a party that has set the foot of Its pro
test against every step in the pathway
of National development."
After a discussion of the bearing and
importance of the present election in Ore
gon, and the Influence that a Republican
victory will have upon the work in other
states, Mr. Dolllver closed by declaring
that we are now upon the eve of a mighty
political conflict in this country, and in
the fight the State of Oregon has the post
of honor and the obligations bf leadership.
Socialist Mass Meeting;.
A largely attended meeting of Socialists
was held last night at A. O. U. W. Halt
Many men have become converted to the
principles of Socialism In the last five
days in Portland. Fully 1000 people, most
of them voters, heard Rev. Mr. Wilson last
night, and were In entire sympathy with
the principles he explained. If the Inter
est and enthusiasm of this last meeting Is
a criterion, the Socialist vote at the polls
today will surprise those who know noth
ing of this movement. Close to $100 was
raised at last night's meeting.
Some time during this week the new
converts will meet with the older veter
ans to perfect an organization and make
arrangements to carry on a progressive
campaign, which will not be finished, the
leaders declare, until the co-operative
commonwealth Is realized.
Rev. J. Stltt Wilson, who has conducted
the meetings of the past two weeks in
the State of Oregon, is a 20th century rev
olutionist and reformer. The central theme
of all his addresses is "that the com
petitive system has already passed away
and the trust system of combination and
monopoly Is here, therefore, the great and
only Issue before the American people to
day is between socialism and capitalism,
between public ownership and private
ownership; that the result is sure to be
public ownership and true liberty of man."
Rev. Mr. Wilson goes from here to hold
a series of meetings in Los Angeles, Cal.
"Indorsed" by "Nonpartisans."
The so-called Non-Partlsan Advisory
Association (composed of union men) has
indorsed certain candidates for office.
They are James E. Godfrey, Democrat,
for State Printer, who has been variously
a supporter and an opponent of union men
for office; Nathan H. Bird, Independent,
for Sheriff; Walter E. Jackson, Republi
can, for Constable West Side; and the
following candidates for Representatives
in the Legislature: E. A. Austin, N. D.
Beutgen, Frank H. Curtis, M. C. Davis,
E. A. McPherson, A- F. Felguth, Charles
Ream, A. A. Bailey, J. S. Hutchinson,
George M. Orton. Of these, the first six
are "Citizens" Austin, Beutgen,, Curtis,
Davis, McPherson and Velguth; one is a
Socialist Charles Ream; and three are
Republicans Bailey, Hutchinson and Orton.

Oregon has within Its borders many
former residents of the State of Iowa,
the greatest among these being George
H. Williams, who wa3 for five years a
Circuit Judge in that state. The record
of this great man is one of which tho peo
ple of Iowa may well be proud. It was
indeed with no small propriety that Mr.
Dollivcr referred in his speech Saturday

hi own state, and In doing so he paid a
FOR FAIR PLAY AND DECENT
J. R. Whitney bolted Judge I R.
Webster's nomination some years ago and
defeated him for Attorney-General, but
now expects Republican support! The
said Whitney, who is proprietor of a daily
paper, has also earned the contempt of
workingmen and employers alike by op
posing unions until nominated for State
Printer, and then trying to get Into tho
ranks of union labor to secure votes.
Here is the opinion of Charles Mickley,
president of the Non-Partisan Advisory
Association, upon Whitney's methods:
"It is not Just nor right that a candi
date for office who is a union man of two
weeks' standing should have the same
consideration by union labor as the other
candidate for the same office, who is a
time-tried, true and consistent union man
of 16 years' standing. The notice should
not be published to future aspirants for
office that after the nomination will be
time enough to break Into a union to get
the support of organized labor."
Mr. Mickley and union men generally
are1 supporting James E. Godfrey, who is
a square' man and capable printer, and
who has not agreed to "divvy" the office
with a political boss for securing him the
nomination. All good citizens should vote
for Godfrey. His number Is 35.

WHY NOT BLAME IX3IAX?
The Democrats have attempted to In
jure the cause of J. N. Williamson,
nominee for Congress, by criticizing
him for not calling up the fellow-servants'
bill In the Senate. That was a
Htitise bill, and it was no more the
business of one man than of another -to
call It up In the Senate. Why Is It
that Williamson has been criticized on
this score, and not Senatgr Inman?
Inman had every right on the floor of
the Senate that "Williamson had. This
attempt to shield a Democratic candi
date and knife a Republican candidate,
shows that the purpose Is to mislead
the Republicans who would bo affected
by the fellow-servants' law. The Dem
ocrats presume upon the Intelligence of
the people when they try to work a
dodge like this on tho eve before elec-.
which he Is doubtless unable to wield him
self. No man Is wise In all thlng3. Mr. Poul
sen can see nothing In Judge Williams
but "a fine old gentleman." Mr. Poulsen
Is as I said, a great "financier," a "money
maker, a money-lover, no doubt Is blinded
by the rosy twilight of the future, and
sees, with his financial eye. only the
glittering and alluring salary that Mr.
Inman would draw In case he were elect
ed, the half of which would belong to
Mr. Poulsen, the financier. Under such
exquisite circumstances, Mr. Poulsen Is
excusable for wielding his cudgel in be

She was a most captivating creature,
beautiful beyond the race of women. Tho
artifice of her oyes, the skill of her
charms petrified the gaze of admiration
with the effect of a Medusa. When she
spoke, it was heavenly harmony; when
she laughed, stones and trees were wont
Upon this superb creature bangs a tale.
It Is related by L. B. Gorham, of this
city, who vouches that every detail of it
is true. And, although Mr. Gorham's
friends Insist that he was mosmerlzed or
hypnotized, he maintains, with the In
tensity of a manNvhose chief pride is his
veracity, that the story is not an empty
vision, but the -whole truth, and nothing
but the truth. He saw with his own
corporeal eyes: therefore, he knows he Is
not deceived. Mr. Gorham is an ardent
disciple of Izaak Walton, and equal to
any storyteller of the craft. But he Is
unique among the devotees of the craft.
In that he has a conscience, which always
holds him down to fact.
The story Is a tale of a catastrophe.
Otherwise it would be humorous. Noth
ing Is more serious In this world than tho
wounded pride of a charming woman.
And the pride of the superb creature
about whom this story gathers was
wounded by the discovery that all her
beauty was not all her own.
The particular skill of the fair daugh
ter of Eve was that of enrapturing the
hearts of all who saw her, and yet of
commanding their respect. Her portion
of knowledge, wit and good sense was
beyond that of most men of wisdom. She
had a composure of manner, a graceful
ness of motion, a dignity of respect, and,
withal, a complacency of being, that
made all the universe turn about her.
In the presence of the other sex she had
a way of discovering new charms that
took men's speech away as soon as their
tongues recovered from the old ones.
In this way, as much aa she drew men
I near, she kept them at a distance. And,
although so reserved, she was ono of the
race of women who rejoice in secret in
the admiration of men, and with whom
decp-souled eyes and their artful confu
sion are the highest of graces. Her hand.
It was the finest In the world; her form,
the most angelic. But like the sphinx
she was, which men can only please by
posing themselves before It.
"What do you think happened? Early
next morning there was a rustling of silk
behind me. I turned about. Believe me,
this Is as true as Gospel, and I am, telling
it absolutely straight. There stood the
beautiful lady who had left the steam
ship with a handkerchief to her mouth.
" 'Is this Mr. Gorham?' .she a&ed.
'Did you insert this ad.?
"I answered that I did. and handed to
her the package containing the object
of her quest. She turned her back to me

the teeth in place, for her right hand
went to her mouth, and there was a sharp
snap. Then she deliberately walked out
