THE StHST) AY OREGOXIAX, , PORTLAND, SEPTJS3IBER 3, 1905. HER FIRST ELECTION Russia Prepares to Choose National Douma. OFFICIAL CONTROL BARRED Government Forbids Manipulation and Orders Free Choice by Peo ple Socialists Call General Strike In Protest. ST. PETERSBURG, l3ept 2. Though the new National Assembly, during the first days after tne Issuance of the Emperor's manifesto calling the assembly, was given more unfavorable criticism than praise and the Russian press through ignorance took a tar loss favorable view of the new Institution than did the foreign newspa pers, the value of the Assembly, the ex tent of its powers and the long steps for ward it marks in the path of reform are now? becoming generally recognized throughout the empire- A flood of ad dresses of thanks Is coming In from all Uy!j.: classes and from all regions, the clt: doumar- leading the districts, though the urban population was supposed to have been placed at a considerable disadvan tage with the peasants and the nobility imder the electoral arrangement. A num lor of doumas have coupled their ad dresses with requests for freedom of speech and of the press, but only in a few title were addresses rejected. Removing Defects in Scheme. The project, the provisions of which are difOcult of comprehension by people not experienced In parliamentary Institu tions, is being taken up for careful study and consideration, and. because of this, much of the adverso criticism Is wearing away and the talk of a boycott of the Awembly by the Liberals Is no longer hrd. Public discussion of the Assembly and the .steps that are being taken to put It Into effect are bringing to light minor defects and impracticable projects and the Ministry of the Interior is busy an swering questions and furnishing Interpre tations on doubtful points. It Is apparent that a number of modifications, either by imperial direction or by the douma itself, will be necessary before the Assembly be comes a practical working body. Some of the principal complaints that the border provinces wore not to be rep resented In the first Assembly have been removed by the prompt convening of the Soteky Commission for elaborating a schemo for elections In those districts in which the system of local organisation that pro vails In the 50-governments of Russia proper, the machinery of which was appointed by the Bouligan Commis sion for election purposes, Ik in existence and by a declaration of the Ministry of the Interior that the reports are absolute ly without foundation. Elections Will Be Free. The elections In the entire empire must be ended by Decombor 15. Since tho work of oanvasslng the vote and the Journoys of distant representatives to St. Peters burg will occupy the month before the dato fixed by the Emporor for convening the Assembly, tho work of preparation of electoral lists Is actively under way In the various cities and in the country districts, and telegraphic orders -have been sent to the dilator' heads of a number of govern ments to proceed Immediately with the work. Accusations which are frequently cir culated in many parliamentary states that the government intends to manipulate elections are heard here concerning the douma. and Indeed, with numerical pre dominance of peasant electors and the peasants' awe of the prefects and other local officials, the government is undoubt edly in a p;tton to do so. This undoubt edly will be the desire of many provin oml chinovnlks who have been nccus tontod to wielding arbitrary authority, with little more reference to the wishes of the central government than to the de sires of the people of this district. But tht provisions of the project and election regulations and special orders issued since show that the government Is acting in good faith aiid Is doing Its best to make the elections independent. A limit Is put on the activity of the provincial admlnls tratlve authorities, and the elections are placed in the control of authorities popu larly elected or appointed. The bureau cracy has no voice In the arrangements and no vote in the elections. How Will Classes Combine? A number of computations have been made by enemies of the project for tbe purpose of showing the peasants in the majority In the douma; but these prog nostications are groundless, as It Is not known what combinations the three classes, of electors will form among them selves in the various governments, and the Inclination of the peasant electors Is to use the plurality colleges to secure an undue share of representatives and force the city and the nobility electors to com bine In self-defense. The project is received with satisfac tion by the Jews In Russia, .primarily- be cause it is the first general law promul gated In Russia in 80 years not containing a clauso discriminating against the Jews as a race. This is more than they had Tioped for.-They are granted political rights under the douma equal to those of a large proportion of the civil rights enjoyed by other Russians. The logical outcome of this condition must be. of course, that the civil rights of Jews will bo Increased and broadened, and rec ognition of this also causes them satis faction. Hew Era Dawns for Jews. It can e safely said that the establish ment of the Douma means the dawn of an Improved condition for the Jews, but to what extent this amelioration will be carried out it is Impossible now to tell. The settlement of many details of the Jewish problem will rest with the Douma itself, but Jewish representation In the Douma will be smalL The Jewish soldiers who fought in the war will be permitted upon mustering out to settle anywhere In Russia except Moscow and the Caucasus. This permits the settlement of about 50, 000 families outside the pale. The zone of residence Is very gradually extending and the authorities say that further ex tension is contemplated. A Te Dcum was sung yesterday at the synagogue In St. Petersburg for the grant ing of political rights to the Jews, but there was no public attendance whatever. Te Dums were also sung In one or two other clues, but with no greater public enthusiasm. The Jews exchanged con gratulations among themselves on the granting of political rights, but in Vilna, Odessa, Gomel and other places where spontaneous expressions of satisfaction might be particularly looked for, the strong antl-Je welsh sentiment prevailing served to prevent them. It being feared the demonstration would be attended by disorders. XATIONAL STRIKE PROPOSED Russian Labor Party Proposes Pro test Against Czar's Douma. NEW YORK. Sept 2. (Special.) The New York section of the Social Demo cratic party today received a manifesto issued by the central committee of tho Social Democratic Labor party of Russia, stating that It Is making preparations for the greatest strike over "known on carta. More than 20,000,030 of working people are to be involved. The strike la to go into effect at the time of the general elec tion In .Russia, when representatives for the National Assmbly will he chosen. The new Douma is denounced by the working people as the merest caricature or a na tional Assembly. The party manifesto 1b addressed: "To All Those Who Are Robbed of Their Rights." It proposes a general strike all over the country at the.tlme of elections and choice of representatives by the great numbers whom tho Czar's edict disfran chises. It is proposed that the strikers go to the capital and confront the dele gates of- the privileged classes. The mani festo says. In part: You all remember, citizens, the Czar's promise of February 18. After stubbornly refusing for years to listen to the appeals for a change in political conditions, he then declared his intention to call upon men trusted by tho people to participate in legislation. -The moment Is approaching for the ful fillment of that promise. It will be glori fied In various terms by all tho hirelings whose trade Is to deceive the people. This now law will be nothing more nor less than another deadly Insult to the people Year after year have the workingmen of all nationalities which Inhabit the Rus sian empire struggled against the bated, autocracy. Year after year have they de manded freedom, demanded that the peo ple should control the state. Working men's bloofl nas been shed In torrents for this end. And now, when the Czar's gov ernment has at last felt compelled to call together representatives of the natloririt has denied the working class any right to choose their own spokesman. In a word, this Douma will be a xnls repreeentative body. Such an assembly will allow tho nrlvilejrcd atrocities to con tinue. Only a representative assemly, chosen fov universal, direct and secret suf frage, will be able to right these wrongs ind bring In a. new order. nrst oi an, you snouia rcpiy an over the land with a general and solid prdtest against the denial of the people's rights. Answer the Czar with a general strike. Let not a chimney smoke, let not a fac tory run, let not a store be kept open, let not an office conduct Its business while the election proceeds. Cabs, trolleys, rail roads, steamers let them all stand stllL Drop your work. Tell your employers this time you are on strike against the Czar's government. Arrange your meetings and demonstra tions and call for a universal, constituent assemly. Take caro that the people them selves choose their delegates to go to the capital. Prepare for a strike, and at the same time prepare to repulse the onslaughts of the brutal police. Arm yourselves at whatever cost. Save pennies to buy weapons. Form companies of self-defense In every factory and let these companies beat oft the police ruffians. Talk with the soldiers and Invite them to Join hands with you. On to the battle, comrades! Hurrah for the political strike! Hurrah for the uni versal, constituent assembly! Hurrah for equality! Down with autocracy! Down with Boullgan's Douma!

LIQUID SUNSHINE CURING MAIjIGNAVT GROWTHS CANCER OF STOMACH YIELDS TO ITS Wonderful Remedial Agency and D tactics From Abdominal Wall: Portlaad Recognised n Sci entific Center. CHICAGO. Sept. 2. Two months ago wheny J. R. Thomas, a well-known manufacturer of the Lake Shore district, loft this city for treatment of cancer or the stomach, he did so bidding good-bye to his family and Intimate friends with the expectancy of possibly never return ing. For the past two years Mr. Thomas has been in tho hands of eminent special ists and under their Instructions has visited the leading springs In Europe, be ing attended there by famous European physicians. In May last. Mr. Thomas returned from Marlenbad disheartened, the attending physicians advising him to return to America as nothing more could be done. As a last resort, a capital operation was advised by a Chicago sur geon and sanctioned by Mr. Thomas. Upon making an exploratory Incision the surgeon concluded not to go further, the condition of the stomach and Intestines being such that certain death would have resulted, notwithstanding that the opern tlon Itself might have been, as doctors, say. very successful. Mr. Thomas was ad vised by his doctors to try "Liquid Sun shine," the greatest remedy of the age, the same treatment to which Dr. Harper was subjected, a combined use of radium and fluorescent medicine popularly known as "Liquid Sunshine." Twice a da j' Mr. Thomas was treated with chloride of rndlum tubes at the X-Radlum Medical Institute, of Port land, Ore., and in addition, partook three times a day of a solution containing ten drops of the fluorescent liquid, which was sufficient to keep his entire system satur ated. The radium thus Injected excited the fluorescent liquid Into the cancer to luminosity, the light acting upon the can cerous tissue absolutely destroying the same and penetrating into cavities where the knifo dared not or could not pene trate. Six weeks' treatment at the X Radlum Medical Institute reduced the area of the cancer from IS to four square Inches and completely detached It from the abdominal wall, and within two months Mr. Thomas left the Institute pronounced cured. Since his return Mr. Thomas has regularly attended to his business at the factory, working eight and nine hours dally, gaining weight and Is showing the highest spirits. Specialists here, who have thoroughly examined Mr Thomas since his return, say the cure Is a remarkable one, but assert that the treatment, despite the many cures cred ited to the X-Radlum Medical Institute, is yet in Its experimental stage. Be this as It may, "Liquid Sunshine" la bordering close upon tho miraculous and Oregon is being prominently Identified with the scientific world In producing such re markable cures as have been made of late at the Portland X-Radlum Medical In stitute. SWEDEN CAUSES A HITCH Refuses to Recognize Separation as Accomplished Fact. KARLSTAD, Sweden, Sept. 2. Swed ish and Norwegian delegates appointed to formulate terms for the dissolution of the union between Sweden and Norway con tinued their deliberations today. The- ses sion lasted until 5:1 P. M. Absolute se crecy was observed In regard to tho pro ceedings. It la said that the Swedish del egates took the stand that they were treating with the Norwegian delegates not In their capacity as representatives of the government In existence, but as rep resentatives of the cabinet appointed by King Oscar, thus emphasizing the fact that Sweden does not recognize Norway's claim that the union has already been dissolved. This Is denied by Norwegians here, but the report Is published by the After Posten of Chrlstlanla. The Swedish delegates are assisted by three military experts. The feeling here this evening Is that. If the conference falls to reach an agree ment within a week, the negotiations are likely to be suddenly broken off. The Norwegian delegates are not as optimistic as they were on their arrival. Premier Mlchelsen (of Norway), predicts that tho negotiations will perhaps' last for weeks.
