TO CONGRESS, PLEA
Message Is Sent to Oregon by
Jonathan Bourne Jr.
SENATE MARGIN SMALL
Control of Law-Ma kins Bodies De
clared: More Important Than
Jonathan Bourne. Jr., who served
a term as United States senator for
Oregon, has telegraphed to J. L. Day,
republican county chairman that a
republican congress is even more
necessary than a republican presi
dent. The message of Mr. Bourne,
who is a resident of Washington, T.
C is as follows:
"For more than SO years Oregon,
mora than any other state, has led in
the increase and perpetuation of the
power of the people. For eight years
the democratic administration has
substituted autocratic atid bureau
cratic government for popular and
truly representative government. The
country is now in the most critical
condition of our national history.
Democratic extravagance has heaped
needless debts upon the nation. Waste
of public funds has depreciated the
value of liberty bond- sold to the
people upon the assurance that they
were the best fnvestment on earth;
unwise tax systems and inflation of
the currency have needlessly en
hanced the cost of living; an admini
stration unfamiliar with best busi
ness practices has destroyed efficien
cy in the public service; private en
terprise has been discouraged by the
constant interference of bureaucracy;
and agricultural producers have suf
fered enormous losses incident to ar
bitrary and -unintelligent deflation.
Knrmiri Held Catered To.
"The democratic administration has
repeatedly catered to the enemies of
orderly government a home and has
repeatedly surrendered to our national
rivals abroad. Oregon on November
2 should lead in the rebuke to the
democratic party by giving an un
precedented republican majority, re
membering that a large working re
publican majority in congress as well
as a republican president is necessary
to enact remedial legislation and ex
peditiously return to a government
by law rather than the democratic
idea of a government by men.
"Republicans now control the sen
ate by a margin of two votes, and
the contest is so close that the out
come of the senatorial election in
Oregon may determine whether re
publicans or democrats shall organ
ize the next senate, appoint lta com
mittees and guide its policies.
Republican Majority Urged.
"In such a crisis, personal friend
ships ought not induce republicans to
disavow their political principles by
voting for a candidate who declares
himself to be a partisan democrat and
thereby-becomes indorser of the mis
takes, extravagances, class and de
structive legislation of an administra

tion in whose caucuses he partici
pated. ' , -
"A large working republican ma
jority in both houses of congress is
even more necessary thai a repub
lican president, since cong'ress- as the
only direct representative of the peo
ple themselves Is and. rightly should
be the only source for -the Initiation
and enactment' of laws. Republicans
can safely support a democrat on the
ground of personal friendship only
when the democrat promises to sup
port the republican party and repub
lican principles on the same basis.
"JONATHAN BOURNE, JR."

And because Eileen, Maye was not

setting for a "shimmie" dance which
dazzled the eyes of a burly "copper,"
she found herself yesterday back
stage in the city Jail.
It was .nearly 2 o'clock in the morn
ing and at the corner of Third and
Alder streets. The streets were al
most deserted. From a nearby door
way appeared Eileen clad In scanty
raiment. Humming her own accom
paniment, she whirled about the fresh

Instead, he decided to have her held

Then he bethought himself of the

Dragging himself to a window on the
second floor of a hotel at Sixth and
Couch streets, he threw himself otrt
into the street. He struck the pave
ment with a- shriek of pain. Other
lodgers were aroused and sent for the
police. And Earl accomplished his
desire. He was taken to the police
emergency hospital in the patrol.
In police court yesterday he pleaded
guilty to vagrancy and was sentenced
to 90 days in jail. While behind the
bars during the next three months he
will make another effort to free him

The veteran police officer will tell

Inspectors Tackaberry and Phillips
arrested John Kellerson as a suspect
during an investigation of a resent
burglary. En route to the police sta
tion Kellerson reached Into a hip
pocket and tossed a bottle Into the
street. The broken glass scattered
about the pavement, while an amber
liquid of strong alcoholic odor trickled
into the gutter.
Invstigation by the Inspectors
showed that Kellerson had nothing
to do with the suspected burglary.
They then decided to charge him
with violating- the prohibition law,
but remembered that the "evidence"
had long since evaporated out in the

Government's Policy in Ireland De
nounced and Proposal Is Of-
lered as Way to Peace.
LONDON, Oct. 8. (Special Cable.)
Tls week's Nation winds up a vig
orous denunciation of the govern
ment's policy in Ireland with some
notable suggestions for a settlement
of the Irish question. It proposes,
first,' that an act of parliament should
at once be passed appointing the
prince of Wales regent of Ireland.
The appointment would be strictly
limited in point of time and would
be used for the attainment of the fol
That the prince, on taking up his
residence in Dublin castle, would be
empowered to place it under a com
mission of English, Scottish and Irish
judges, suspending all other supreme
functionaries and controls.
The prince would also issue a proc
lamation of peace and amity to the
Irish people, calling on them to ab
stain from violence, declaring am
nesty for political prisoners and as
suring them of the disarmament of
the police and retirement of the army
to the ports. He would then summon
tr-e beads of the Sinn Fein and lead
ers of the Orangemen to an ad in
terim Irish cabinet, which would in
clude representatives of the Imperial
cabinet ana of the dominions.
This body would be charged with
the duty of drawing up measures,
subject to guarantees for the safety
of the empire and the British isles,
and to the assent of the imperial par
liament. When its task had been con
cluded the regency of the prince
would be terminated unless all par
ties desired him to remain as the
virtually independent sovereign, or,
better still, as the constitutional
president of the Irish republic in
friendly alliance with Great Britain
but not in enforced subjection to her.
The Nation thinks it right to add
that the "proposal which we have out
lined was made without any knowl
edge of a somewhat similar sugges
tion made by an Irish vigilance so
ciety In the United States, a body of
whose existence we were unaware."
