ON A "RAW RESOLUTION"
An Argument by a Rourne Follower
for Statement One.
PORTLAND. Nov. 17.-(To the Filitor.)
A and B are candidates for a primary
nomination. Bach promises unreservedly
In public addresses to support his oppo
nent If victorious in the primary election.
B Is nominated. A himself carries out his
ante-primary promises and supports the
nominee: but thousands of A's followers
or partisans, for revenge possibly, vote
in the general election for C. .he com
mon political enemy of A and B. C re
ceives the majority of votes, declaring
him the popular choice for I'nlted States
Senator. An evident majority of mem
bers of the elected legislature are
pledged by this popular vote and their
o n deliberate promise, by reason of
which promise these legislators were
elected, to " vote always for the candidate
receiving the highest vote for Ignited
Every legislator who signed ""Statement
Number One'- made that statement his
platform. Every man of them knows he
was elected for no other reason but his
signature of that statement, and doubt
less many of them would have gladly re
frained from signing It If they could have
been elected otherwise: sy. and some who
were defeated as legislative candidates
would have signed the statement, too,
had they known that by so doing they
would have won.
The majority vote given to Governor
Chamberlain was directly the result of
thousands of Republican voters sup
porting him. Possibly they voted for
the Governor because they believe him
best qualified for the office of Senator.
Republicans of that belief are not the
rnen who are now Imploring clubs to pass
resolution of the kind referred to la San-
day'a Oregonian presumably to Influence
the probable action of the executive board
of the Union Republican Club.
The effort to compel these pledged
legislators to violate their promise
comes then from the men who voted
for Governor Chamberlain rather than
support the Republican nominee. It is
evident that many Republican voters
had this purpose in mind when they
cast their ballots for a -emocrat. believing-
that by the sophistry of "Ore-g-on's
need of appropriations," etc..
elected legislators might be found
weak enough to renounce their pledges
and for party's sake do a thing that in
private affairs they would loathe
themselves for even considering.
For refusing to act with a caucus
In a senatorial battle ten years ago,
two men from this county were re
peatedly proclaimed to be "stinkards."
What term can an Indignant press dis
cover to fit the perfidy of men whose
only chance of election was their ad
herence to Statement No. 1. and who
would refuse to abide the result? The
press In days to come will Join with
the public In holding up to political
contempt every man who dares do this
It Is somewhat unusual for the pro
ceedings of a meeting held privately
to be announced In a newspaper sev
eral days before the meeting itself Is
held. There would seem to be an
over-communicative brother In the
council of the Union Club. He tells
more than he knows. The question
tabled at a recent meeting was not.
who Is for Chamberlain, or who for a
Republican, but, stripped of Its cir
cumlocution, a proposition to urge our
legislators to violate their freely
given promise to vote always for the
people's choice for Senator.
If such a proposition is apt and
proper for any man or any body of
men. It Is most appropriate for those
who voted. being Republicans, or
claiming to be. for Governor Chamber
lain. Surely those are the men who
are "for Chamberlain." Judge McDe
vitt. C. M. Idleman and the others
spoken of by our leaky hot-air tank
as being "for Chamberlain." voted for
Republican candidates In the primary
and general election, and while they
regret the nomination of a Democrat,
they will not be made the catspaws to
rake chestnuts out of the fire for the
men to whom Chamberlain's nomina
tion Is entirely due.

ROSE EYTINGE TESTIMONIAL.
Local Theaters Will Be Represented
on Programme, Which Gives
Promise of Exceptional Merit.
The Rose Eytinge testimonial, which
Is to occur Thursday afternoon at the

attention, as Is evidenced by the news

canvassing the city and report that
the demand for tickets Is so brisk that
they are having difficulty In supplying
the demand. Mrs. Gleason herself, un

being conducted, made an automobile
tour of the residence district yester
day and sold more than 100 tickets.
Other ticket-sellers report satisfactory
sales. William Gleason. who will act
as stage director of the performance,
has called a dress rehearsal for Thurs

the details. The programme, as per
