PRINCIPLES OF PARTIES
County Judge Jewell Gives Impres
sions of Current Politics.
GRANTS PASS, Or.. July 29 (To the
fcdltor.) The Oregonian of last Thursday
contained an article over the signature of
Judge Stephen A. Lowell, of Pendleton, which
rallies a few questions that are worthy of
The Judge is certainly correct In hup state
ment that Roosevelt la not a Democrat and
that Bryan la not a Rejmbllcan. But he U
iuet a little faulty in hta definition of Repub
lcan and Democratic principles. It Is true
that the Republican party stand for protective
tariff, centralization of government and lib
eral constructloa of the constitution (or more
correctly speaking, loose construction of the
constitution), and that the Democratlo party
opposes all of these, but It la not true that
the Republican iparty holds to sound money
and that the Democratic party holds to cheap
tnoney. The real Democrats of thia country
believe that money la simply a medium of
exchange and not a commodity of speculation.
We believe that the money trust Is the most
Bangerous and most demoralizing of all
Judge Lowell tells us that Mr. Roosevelt
stands opposed to "tariff for revenue only.
Cheap money, state rights and strict con
struction of the constitution." If this b true,
(hen It Is clear that the President Is not a
Democrat. Of course, we deny that "cheap
tnoney" la any part of our Democracy. "We
lo claim, however, that the nights of the
Kates and of the individual citizen should
be respected. We also believe that no state
ftr Individual ha a right t trespass upon the
tight of other states or Individual. In
Ihls we are very far from being in harmony
with our Republican brethren. And to the
violation of this principle of American
democracy can be traced all of the moral
tnd political evils that have ever afflicted this
tr any other country.
If each individual citizen could learn to re
inject the rights of all other clttzens and each
government learn to respect the fights of all
trther governments. It would not be long un
til the Republican party would be out of
luslness. The present Republican high tariff
L purely in the Interest of the few against
he many. In fact, the beneficiaries of high
larlff. land monopoly, railroad extortion, bank
Eg privileges and all other trust-produclag
lauses are here by the grace of Republican
awmaker. The cause were incorporated
into our administrative policy over the protest
of the Democratic party.
Our Republican friend are very inconsistent
in their present attitude towards the trust
magnate. These gentlemen are the legitimate
production of Republican legislation. The trust-,
producing eed was sown 40 years ago and a
long as its fruit was confined to the South
and the Philippine Islands, Republican con
vention were pleased to "point with pride."
The present administration Is wasting it
energy at the wrong end of the trust evil.
What good will It do to prosecute a few of
the fortuats fellows in the trust gang and let
the system Itself continue? Why not begin
at the right place and destroy the cause of
corruption? A long as the causes of political
corruption exist, it I wrong to prosecute
men who are making use of these causes. The
present administration openly Indorses our
present banking system, our' present high
tariff system, our Plnkerton system, our rail
road system and the disgraceful tyranny that
has been exercised for the past eight years in
the Philippines. And until some effort I
made to remove these blot from our Ameri
can civilization, thinking men will regard the
present "trust howl" as a grand farce.
PLANS STILL UNREVEALED
Speculation Rife Concerning Mount
Hood Railway's Line Location.
GRESHAM, Or., July 29. (Special.) In
terest in the railroad Is Increasing, since
it became definitely known that the pro
jectors of the Mount Hood line were real
ly at work. The extensive preparations
and actual work being done at Bull Run
have had the effect of producing much
speculation as to where the road will be
located through that portion of the county-
between Montavilla and the Sandy
Not a foot of right of way has been se
cured yet, so far as known, although
several surveys have been made. The
camp locator of Mason & Davis, railroad
contractors, is here, however, seeking
available spots on which to settle con
struction crews. He has made a guarded
statement that work will begin at Cleone,
where a tralnload of tools, engines and
other material is now being unloaded. His
camps will be located about every three
miles from Cleone to Bull Run.
From all appearances the company will
be at work within a week throwing dirt,
and it has been said that the road will be
built first and right of way secured af
terward. A telephone wire has been strung upon
the poles of the Pacific Telephone &
Telegraph Company from Portland to
Sandy. From there the Mount Hood peo
ple will make their own line to Bull Run.
Such a service will be sufficient until
they can erect their own line all the way,
along their railway track.
Teams are still hauling machinery and
material to Bull Run and men are being
employed as fast as possible, the wages
being from $2. BO to 13 a day.
It has been reported by those who pro
fess to know that the line will run south
from Cleone, crossing the Base Line
about half a mile west of the Twelve
Mile House. From that point it will
make a detour toward Gresham, but
leaving that place half a mile to the
south. Then it will follow an easy grade
to the mouth of Bull Run River, where
the power plant is being installed.
Future developments will be eagerly
looked for by the people of this section,
as many are very much interested in the
location of the road, as affecting their

ANNOYANCES AT YAQUINA
Is Anybody In Authority Over Rail
road Operations There?
PORTLAND, July 29. (To the Editor.)
The matter of the annoyance caused
that portion of the public who are in
convenienced by the existing rules whlci
require a person purchasing a round-trip
ticket to Newport to he virtually forced
to go there can, in my estimation, be
very easily remedied by having their
tickets validated at the summit, as was
the method for a long time.
Lincoln County, more than any other
undeveloped county in the State of Ore
gon, requires settlers, and it certainly
is pretty rough on them after looking
over the country all day and getting to
Eddyville, Elk City or Toledo, to find
the train gone and to be forced to re
main over all day in order to go to New
port and remain there all night to get
his ticket validated next morning.
Lincoln County is a land of great pos
sibilities and besides its agricultural,
dairying, fishing and pomological re
sources to my certain knowledge con
tains vast undeveloped deposits of iron
and copper; also coal. Many settlers are
expected, so I ask the officials of the C.
& E., however much they may personally
object, to accommodate the public; to
do so in this Instance more especially as
the road now belongs to the Harriman
system and there is a strong impression
abroad that Mr. Harriman likes to have
productive property along his lines.
To my certain knowledge the Southern
Pacific officials in Portland have done
all they can to retrieve this annoyance,
but every time we enquire why "some
thing" has not been done we are in
formed it is up to a C. & E. 'official at
Albany named Nevins. So, Mr. Nevlns,
"here's hopin'." F. J. PARKER.

DREDGE RIVER BELOW SALEM
Engineers Dig Channel, Pull Snags

SALEM, Or., July 29. (Special.) In
connection with the work of the United
States Engineers' snag-puller, Math
loma, which is pulling snags from the
channel of the Willamette River a few
miles below this city, a portion of the
$60,000 appropriated by Congress for
improvement of the Willamette Is be
ing expended in dredging the main

feet over the shallow bars by Dipper

stump-pulling, and is assisting the
Besides deepening the channel the
crews of the Mathloma and Dipper
Dredge are building a 1000-yard rock
revetment and a wing dam at Wheat

through into Lambert Slough. This
work will entail the expense of several
thousand dollars and will be of great
value to the owners of property below
that point whose lands are inundated
and damaged to no small extent when
ever there le a freshet In the river.
It is expected that the dredger will
go farther up the river, when it has
finished its task below here, and open
the channel as far as the limit of the
appropriation will permit, in the effort
to restore navigation toward Eugene.

When the blood becomes infected with unhealthy humors the effect is
shown on the skin in the form of pimples, rashes, eruptions, or some other
type of skin disease. These humors circulating in the blood, come in con

and inflammation, and often excessive itching and burning. Trying to cure
skin troubles with external applications is treating the effect instead of the
cause. Such treatment perhaps allays some of the itching and discomfort,

LOVE'S DREAM SHUTTERED
IRATE FATHER FOILS YOUTH
Prevents 17-Year-Old Charles
Breckinridge From Joining
Grace Nolan in Tacoma.
An elopement out of the ordinary, was
brought to sudden grief last night by the
police, when Charles Breckinridge, 17
years of age, was arrested by Patrolman
Ben Peterson. The lad is in love with
Grace Nolan, a 16-year-old miss, who
until yesterday lived with her parents
near the North Paclflo Mills, North Port
land. She is now In Tacoma, waiting in
vain for her boy lover, who made bold
to carry out a plan to marry her in the
City of Destiny. Breckenridge placed the
girl on board a Northern Pacific train
at Linnton, instructing her to get off at
Tacoma and meet him when the follow
ing train should pull in. He declined to
accompany her, he said, because he
feared the police would be on the lookout
for him and arrest him.
Miss Nolan's father caused the arrest
of Breckinridge, but only after the latter
had played a clever and all but success
ful game to win the girl of his heart.
Young Breckinridge, who came from Ta
coma six weeks ago found employment in
a local foundry, boarded and roomed at
the Nolan home. He fell in love with
the daughter. Last night he said he did
not approve of the way her father made
her work. He therefore determined that
he would take the case into his own
hands and better her condition himself.
He decided on an elopement and pro
ceeded at once to carry out his plans.
Tacoma, his old home, seemed the best
place to go, but before he could get
away from the city with his sweetheart
her father learned of his Intentions and
located .him; taking him to task for his
duplicity. Nolan finally arranged that
young Breckinridge should bring Miss
Nolan back to her home and let matters
rest. Instead of keeping his promise
Breckinridge met the girl again and took
her to St. Johns at which place he secured
a boat and rowed her across the river to
Linnton. There he placed her aboard the
Tacoma train, and telling her he would
follow her. He was arrested on his re
turn to Portland.
This morning the police will take Miss
Nolan lnto custody in Tacoma and send

less blood-cleansing remedies that pos
itively drlvs the very last taint of
virus from the system, and every
symptom vanishes to appear no more.

dissolved, the membranes cleansed, and
all Irritation or congestion removed
throughout the organs involved.
