I was wholly mistaken in. supposing: that
my distinguished successor had the .abillts
to appreciate a courtesy.
Experience teaches mo that it Is per
haps better hereafter to act upon the sug
gestions contained in the following lines,
written by Aaron Hill more than 150 years

And It stings you for your pains.

And It of t as silk remains.

And the rogues obey you well.
If Senator Simon and Senator Corbett
and their assoclates-the Populists In the
Legislature of 1S97 were of the opinion
that my election to the Senate, for any
reason, would have been a menace to the
best interests of the state and Nation, and
furthermore that they were, therefore, for
such reason, as patriots and conservators
of the public weal justified as a mlnorlty
ln resisting the expressed will of a three
fourths majority of the Republican mem
bership In the Legislature, and of a clear
majority of the whole membership of tne
Legislature of all parties, then why not
have the honesty and manhood to say so?
Why not. If you were honest In your oppo
sition to the Republican nominee if such
opposition or the reasons assigned for it
were something more than mere subter
fuge and pretences then why not be hon
est and tell the truth and not skulk and
seek to hide In the shadow of a deliber
ate falsehood? Why not say; "Yes, we held
up the Legislature. Yes, we prevented an
organization, and we did It solely to de
feat Mitchell for the Senate." Do this and
you will be credited with some degree
of respect for political and moral hon
esty. Do this and we will then discuss
with you the Question whether, notwith

your opposition, and granting them for the
time being to be absolutely well founded,

Senator Simon, posing as an immaculate
party man, and with his usual lack of
sense of the proprieties, proceeding fur
ther, entertains the Senate In his maiden
effort with expressions of his personal
spleen and vlndlctlveness. He says:
Ivlr. Mitchell has always had more or
legs connection and political fellowship
with those who opposed the policy of the
This charge, it may be confidently sub
mitted, comes with distinctively bad grace
when It Is made "by one whose record is
literally pitted with acts of treachery to
the Republican organization and Republi
can policies, and by opposition to regular
Republican nominees, as Is that of Senator
Simon, as will be clearly shown later on
In this communication.
But the course of Senator Simon In" or
ganizing the bolt against the Republican
nominee for United States Senator in the
Legislature of 1897, was but consistent with
his record of treachery to the Republican
organization In this state prior to that
In 1SSC Senator Simon was chairman of
the Republican State Central Committee
of Oregon; at the Republican State Con
vention of that year, Judge Waldo was
made the regular nominee -f the Repub
lican party for Supreme judge, and Hon
R. 8. Strahan was the nominee of the
Democratic party for the same position.
Yet, Joseph Simon used all his power as
chairman of the Republican State Central
Committee to defeat Waldo, the Republi
can nominee, and elect Strahan, the Dem
ocratic nominee. This Is a fact universally
known Jn Oregon. In support of this state
TOirt 1 need only quote from The Orego
aiau. Hon. X L. Reeder, a reputable Repub
lican citizen, resident of Sauvle's Island,
Multnomah County, Oregon, had made an
affidavit in which he stated. Simon, gave
him a package of tickets for use In his
Reedcr's) precinct, telling him they were
the regular Republican tickets and whjch
he found on openlng'were the regularRe
publlcan tickets, with Waldo's namo as
Supreme Judge erased and Strahan's put
The Oregonlan In its Issue of June 7. 1SSS,
In commenting on this affidavit, said:
"It Is well known that the bosses of
the Republican ring, the chief "engineers
of the machine, had set their hearts on
defeating the nomination of Judge Waldo
for re-election. This brought about a
struggle in the convention between the
ring managers and delegates from many
parts of the state, and Waldo was re
nominated in spite of the ring. And now
the fact Is developed that Simon, though
chairman of the Republican State Central
Committee, is devoting himself specially
to an effort to beat him. It Is a new
thing for the chairman of the State Cen
tral Committee to use the advantage which
that position gives -him to defeat t.art of
the ticket which he by acceptance of the
trust is bound, or should be bound, to
support In Its entirety,"
Again. It Is a notorious fact that Senator
Simon in 1890 openly opposed the election
of D. P. Thompson, the Republican nomi
nee for Governor, and as openly sup
ported Sylvester Pennoyer, the Democratic
nominee for that place. The election of
Judge Strahan, the Democratic nominee, to
the Supreme Bench in 1SS6, over Judge
Waldo, the Republican nominee, was
largely due to the betrayal of his politi
cal trust by Joseph Simon, as chairman of
the Republican State Central Committee,
and Tils active efforts In his behalf; while
the election, of Pennoyer as Governor in
190 was largely due to the open advocacy
Of Mr. Simon and those of his Republican
friends whom he could influence and con
trol. The degree and character of the activ
ity brought Into requisition by Mr. SJmon.
then State Senator, and also Chairman of
the Republican State Central Committee.
In his efforts to defeat Waldo and elect
Strahan at the June election of 1SS5. In the
City of Portland,, may be judged of from
the following comments of The Dally Ore
gonlan, published at the time. In Its Issue
of date June S, 1SSS, The Dally Oregonlan
"At the polls on the corner of Fourth
and A stre'ets there was a lively scene yes
terday. Several men were arrested in that
locality for buying votes, and great ex
citement ensued. Ten bribers were prompt
ly balled by Hon. Joseph Simon. A little
later E. X Jeffries- and others, having
noticed from the opposite side of the street
what was going on In an old building ad
joining the place where the polls were
kept, crossed over and dislodged the occu
pants. Hon. Joseph Simon wps present
In the building and seemed -to have charge
of the 'proceedings."
While In Its issue of the next day, June
0, 1SSG, the following appeared:
"There was most scoundrelly work done
at polling-place No. 3. North Portland.
The return& give- evidence that nearly
one-half of the vote cast at that place was
bought. It was here- that Joe Simon and
-others were driven out of a rear room near
the polls, where work was going on, and
It was here that the men were arrested
whom Joe Simon so promptly balled."
Further comment on these record facts
as to Mr. Shnon'srparty fealty and political
and 'moral integrity would seem to be un
necessary. Since the adjournment of the Legisla
ture, February 25, 1S97, or more than three
years ago, I have studiously avoided In
truding myself into the politics of this
.state, even In the slightest degree. Prior
to the convening of the special session In
October, 1S9S, on my name being mentioned
In certain papers In connection with the
approaching Senatorial election. I wrote
and published a letter, stating that under
no circumstances would I be a candidate,
.and in that letter. I sajdi

at the same time awaken, to some degree
a sense of Justice In the mlnda of even

any other of Its citizens. For three full
terms they have given me a seat In the

expressed In party caucus as the candidate

I have, therefore, no political claims eth

The main hall of the Exposition Build
ing was well filled last night by a large
crowd of thoroughly representative sports
tn TritnKq thn wrpstllnir bout between the
champion heavy-weights, McMillan and
Cannon, and also the carnival of sports,
wrestling and boxing. All the contests
were uy jjiuh:boju.m jjcujui;. iui owtuuim
points,. The management of the entertain
ment was in the hands of practical, up-to-date
business managers, and as a result
the different events were carried out in
snappy style and up to schedule time.
The wrestling mat and ring were placed
on the stage of the main hall. The build
ing was well lighted, so all had an ex
cellent view of the contestants.
If last night's athletic exhibition Is any
criterion of tho style of sport to be given
to the public by the proposed Jockey and
Athletic Club, and should the sports en
courage tho men behind the scheme as
thoroughly as they did. then the success
of the project Is already assured.
The main event of the evening was the
heavy - -weight, professional -wrestling
match between McMillan and Cannon.
Tho bouts were three catch-as-catch-can
and two Graeco-Roman, of which McMil
lan, the heavier man, won three out of
five and trained tho nurse. The exhlbt
tlon was the best from a scientific athletic
standpoint seen In Portland for years, the
muscular development, quick, tricky work
of these ponderous athletes being a reve
lation to the numerous amateurs present.
One striking feature of their match was
the clever leg -work, not only when the
men were on their feet, but while they
were struggling for holds on the mat-
They seemed to use leg holds as adeptly
a tne ordinary -wrestler would use his
arms. The first fall, being In the catch-
as-catch-can, -was won by McMillan, who
forced the work throughout. Cannon, his
"smer muscujar opponent, wriggled out ol
many seemingly Impossible predicaments,
Finally McMillan used his lejrs In what
ls called the "scissors lock," both legs
wrappea around the opponent's body,
Quickly changing to a half-nelson, and
Cannon's shoulders touched the mat. The

J-he massive McMillan, and gained the fall
