Declares Federal Constitution
Governs Election of
IGNORE STATEMENT NO. 1
Believes Intent of Primary Law Is
Kcpublicans Shall Elect fcholce
of Party Bourne Takes
WASHINGTON. Juna 3. (Special.)
Senator Fulton believes the Republican
Legislature should elect a Republican
Senator. Asked for his views on the
subject, Mr. Fulton toaay made the fol
"The constitution of the United States
Imposes on the Legislature the duty of
choosing a United States Senator. Each
individual member of the Legislature, of
course, has Imposed upon him a portion
of that responsibility. The Federal Con
stitution Itself provides that each mem
ber of the Legislature shall take the oath
of office to support it. Now to support
the constitution means to carry out Its
Intents and purposes and conform to Its
requirements and mandates. When,
therefore, a member of the Legislature
swears to support the constitution honest
ly and faithfully, he swears that he will
honestly and faithfully choose a Sena
tor. Must Follow Own Judgment.
"Can any one reasonably contend that
a Republican, believing In the policies
of the Republican party, would be ex
ercising his honest judgment and would
be honestly choosing pursuant to his
judgment should he support a Democrat
for the United States Senate? It must
he remembered that a United States
Senator is a National official rather than
a state official, in that he legislates for
the entire country. Hence the people of
every state are Interested In the selec
tion by a state of its Senators, and they
have a right to have the supreme law of
the land observed in such selections.
"All this means, so far as I am con
cerned, that the Republican Legislature
of Oregon ought not to elect Mr. Cham
berlain, for he is, as everybody knows,
a Democrat, and he would support the
Elect Republican Senator.
"Shortly after the present primary
'law was adopted. In a published article
I stated that in my judgment It was
never contemplated by the people when
they adopted that law that It would re
quire a Legislature composed largely of
members of one party to select for Unit
ed States Senator a member of another
party. And such is my conviction. Even
If members have subscribed to Statement
No. 1. when they realize that the state
has elected a Republican Legislature and
hence favors Republican National poli
cies, each taking Into consideration his
oath of office and what he Is required
thereunder to do, namely: himself to
choose, before he casts his ballot for
Senator must put aside the state law
and vote for a man of the dominant
"Of course no one will contend that
any state law relating to selection of
United States Senators has any binding
or valid force, as the matter is absolute
ly and entirely regulated by National
law. Hence only law applicable to sub
ject is Federal law and Federal Consti
tution and it Is to that law members of
the Legislature must conform.
"I regret very much the defeat of Mr.
fake. I am not going to believe, how
ever, that a Republican Legislature -will
elect a Democrat to the United States
Senate until I witness the actual fact."
ISourne Stands by Statement.
When asked for his views. Senator
"I assumed that my position with refer
ence to the Oregon primary law. Includ
ing Statement No. 1 was sufficiently
wll known, without requiring any new
Information on that subject. I bave been
and am an anVnt believer in the law
including Statement No. 1, and advocate
Its rigid enforcement. If the people have
selected Governor Chamberlain as their
choice for United States Senator, I have
not the slightest doubt but what the
Legislature, will elect him and ratify the
wish of the people.
"I am one who believes that the peo
ple are sovereign and their command
should be readily obeyed. A principle is
greater than an Individual or a party
and. ns I view it. the principle Is now
at stake. It Is not so much as to who
shall be Senator, but as to -whether
the will of the people shall be obeyed and
that Individual members of the Legisla
ture who have subscribed to a solemn
pledge agreeing to do certain things will
live up to their pledge.
Should Elect Chamberlain.
There can be no question as to the
result. A majority of the Legislature,
being Statement No. 1 -subscribers, will
unquestionably elect Governor Chamber
lain If he received the popular vote in
last Monday's election. In the primaries
I never wrote nor asked a single Indivi
dual to support any candidate, nor was I
instrumental, directly or indirectly, in
the candidacy or withdrawal of any candi
date. In the general election I did all
in my power to assist Hon. H. M. Cake
as the Republican choice for United
States Senator, and urged my friends to
give him loyal support, which, as far
as I am advised, they did. Any Influence
that I may have will be aggressivi
used with the Legislature to get it to
ratify the action of the people and elect
to the United States Senate the Indivi
dual the people have selected as their
choice for that office."

PEHHr POSTAGE JIGHEED OH
TWO CENTS AX OUNCE TO GREAT
BRITAIX THE RATE.
Special Treaty Takes Effect In Oc
tober Increased Commercial
Intercourse to Ensue.
WASHINGTON. June 3. Postmaster
General Meyer announced today that an
agreement had been reached with the
British Government providing for letter
postage of 2 cents an ounce between the
United States and Great Britain and Ire
land, to become operative October 1, 1908.
The matter of "penny postage'," as It
Is called In England, has been under con
sideration for some time, and as far back
as last July President Roosevelt approved
Mr. Meyer's course in urging a "re
stricted union with England."
On October 1, 1907. the Universal Postal
Union, which governs the international,
postage transactions of the various civ
ilized countries, reduced the rate of letter
postage from 6 cents a half-ounce flat to
6 cents per ounce and 3 cents for each
additional ounce, which Is the present
rate between the United States and coun
tries with which we do not have direct
steamship communication, but on mail on
which we have to pay an additional
charge to countries through which it
passes In transit. Under the articles of
the Universal Union, however, any two
states can form a restricted! union. Ex
amples of restricted unions are those
now existing- which permit a 2-cent an
ounce letter rate between . the United
States and Canada.
Postmaster-General Meyer believes this ,
reduction In the rate to the United King
dom ultimately will result in an Increase
In receipts, because it has been found
that a reduction In the letter rate re
sulted finally in increased revenue. He Is
also of the opinion that a lower postage
will lead to a freer commercial Inter
course. Manufacturers, he says, are In
creasing their sales in England and must
rely to a great extent upon mails for
orders and Increase of trade.
"Further," he stated, "this will be a
great boon to our adopted English
speaking citizens and their connection
here, as it will enable them to keep up
correspondence with their relations and
friends in the old country at domestic
Change Announced in Parliament.
LONDON. June 3. Penny postage be
tween America and Great Britain will be
come effective on October of this year.
The rate will be the same as between
Great Britain and her colonies, one penny
(two cents) per ounce. Postmaster-General
Buxton. In announcing this in the
House of Commons today, expressed his
confidence that the reduction would great
ly Increase the commercial intercourse
and mutual feeling now existing between
the two countries.
The announcement was greeted with
HEARST'S GAIN NOW 123

NEW YORK, June 3. The recount of
the ballots in the disputed Mayoralty
election of 1905 proceeded with expedition

William Randolph Hearst. Seventy-seven
boxes have been counted since the re
count was begun, and the total gain for
Hearst is 123. Early today Hearst made
large gains, which were materially re
duced by the recount late In the day.
Supreme Court Justice Lambert, who is
trying the case, has requested Governor
Hughes to recommend to the Legislature
that a special appropriation be made un
der which the jurors who are hearing the
evidence may be allowed extra compensa
tion for their duties.

jurors has lost his employment since the
opening of the trial nine weeks ago, and

fered from neglect for so long a period.

each juror was the compensation sug
gested to the Governor.

Motive of Enemies.
ST. PETERSBURG, Juno 3. A series
of interpellations with regard to the dis
organization and alleged negligence and
Incapacity of the Ministry of Marine, has
been approved by the committee of Na
tional defense and Is to be discussed in
the Dotima tomorrow. All parties are
in favor of resolutions severely censur
ing the Ministry and demanding immed
One of the main points of the indict
ment is the purchase of ten gasoline torpedo-boats
from Lewis Nixon, of New
York, which are now declared to be ut
terly unsuited to fighting. The defense of
the Ministry on this charge is that it
concluded its purchase from Mr. Nixon
in order to prevent the Japanese from se
curing the boats in question.
Other attacks are based on the con
struction of the new cruiser Ruruk, whose
speed Is inferior to that of vessels of the
same time constructed abroad, and al
leged deviations from the specifications
by the English builders in the construc
tion of three new warships of the Bayan
type, although this type was proved dur
ing the Russo-Japanese war to have been
of little value.
SIMPLY TO COVER UP GRAFT

Record In Defense. ,
NEW YORK. June 3. When the at
tention of Lews Nixon was called to
the action of the Committee on Na
tional Defense 'of Fiussiak as reported
in a dispatch from St. Petersburg to
day, he gave out the following state
ment: "This same statement is published
every few months. I think it was
started to -cover up the building; of a
boat In Germany, which was paid for
but never built at all. The boats built
by me having been tried by me in the
Black Sea and the Baltic. The Czar
received me' in special audience later.
Then at the en of the season the
Kronstadt Gazette, the official naval
organ, published that these boats were
successful and proved the success of
the coast defense boats.
"To show the character of the work,
one of these boats crossed the Atlantic
in midwinter, a feat never achieved
by destroyers ten times their size.
Rigid tests by Russian officers showed
that these vessels were of great speed
and more than double the contract en
durance, and carried more guns than
CONFESSES MANY THEFTS
Antone backer's Specialty Was
Horses, Say Seattle Police.
SEATTLE. "ash.. June 3. (Special.)
Antone Sacker, alias Tom Sager, was
a full ruffle, with five
arrested today while endeavoring to sell
a team of horses he had stolen, and
thereby the police believe they have
solved the mystery of a series of thefts
of horses in Seattle and Tacoma. Last
night the loss of a team was reported
and today Sucker offered the horses to a
contractor, who recognized the animals.
He made an appolutinent later in the
day to pay the money to Sacker and
when the latter appeared the police were
watting for him.
At first Sacker maintained that it was
his first offense and that he took the
animals only that he might get money
enough to pay his fare to Portland where
he had friends. A search revealed his
picture in the rogues4 gallery, however,
and when this was shown him he con
fessed to stealing five animals. The
police believe that he is concerned in
the disappearance of 11 horses in Seattle
since May 1, as well as about double that
number In Tacoma.
He also confessed to stealing a team
on Hood Canal and acknowledged that he
had stolen several watches from work
men who had left their vests hanging
near their work.
