"DEMAGOGUE," SAY SOME
Primary Should Be Considered as
"Recall" From Senate, Declare
Others-jSincerity of Efforts
Senator Bourne Is being vigorously
censured and called to account by the
press of the state for his repudiation of
the direct primary law. The Senator Is
being criticised for his evasion of the
law of which he has posed as the ac
tive champion and defender. In mak
ing their criticism, the papers uphold
the direct primary and insist that the
permanency of the Oregon system de
pends entirely on the acceptance of the
results of the primary nominating elec
tion by the voters.
In seeking through an independent
candidacy to secure re-election to the
office from which he was "recalled"
last April, the Eugene Register charges
Senator Bourne with being a "dema
gogue and a preacher of that which he
does not practice."
The editorial comment of the great
majority of the papers deals with the
Inconsistency of Bourne's repudiation
of the direct primary law and his course
as Intermediary for the Standard Oil
Company with the White House, a re
lationship he accepted before he had
been in the Senate two years. With
few exceptions the country newspapers
vigorously denounce Bourne for voting
with Aldrich and against the interests
of his Oregon constituency on the
Desire for Office Prime.
Senator Bourne's persistent efforts to
retain the Senatorshlp by his indepen
dent candidacy Is attributed to an In
satiable lust for office, regardless of
the fact that he was defeated for re
nomination In the Republican direct
primary nominating election last Spring
and his inability to procure the in
dorsement and nomination of the Pro
gressive state convention.
The following editorial expressions
from the country newspapers are in
addition to those already published:
Senator Bourne as the self-acclaimed
father of the Oregon system has little
excuse to come out as an Independent
candidate. He was a candidate before
the primaries and the people, through
the Oregon system, told Bourne they
had bad enough of him.- He should
be consistent and stay at home. Her

Ben Selling received the Republican
nomination In the direct primary elec
tion by a plurality of 6600 over Sena
tor Bourne. Mr. Selling made the race
on his record as a progressive. He sub
mitted his record as a pioneer and con
sistent advocate and supporter of pro
gressive legislation In this state. The
people approved that record and nomi
nated' him. In the primaries Mr. Sell
ing carried 30 of the S4 counties over
Bourne. Mr. Selling is. today standing
on the same record and platform that
won for him the nomination. He is
entitled to the support of every elec
tor who believes in popular govern
ment as It is typified in Oregon's pro
gressive laws. Oregon City Enter

Senator Bourne Is a demagogue and
a preacher of that which he does not
practice. This opinion of Senator
Bourne is deducted from his own ac
tions, which plead guilty to the indict
ment against him. So long as the di
rect primary and. the Statement No. 1
pledge resulted In keeping him at
Washington, he was pleased to pose
as their author and their chief defender,
and to voice at all times and In all
seasons his belief In the Infallibility of
the people's choice. Just as soon,
though, as the people choose some other
man. the -Senator casts off his belief
In the infallibility of the people and
proves that he is Just a plain, ordinary
office-seeker. Senator Bourne is not
a resident of Oregon. He comes To the
tate only when It is necessary to look
fter bis political fences. His borne Is

East. He does not represent the cltl

Bourne, Who Is now out for the United
States Senate, is an advocate of single

all voters to see that Mr. Bourne's vote
Is as light as possible. The state has
enough Insane measures to contend
with without single tax. Union Re
publican. No Democrat and no genuine pro
gressive Republican can consistently
support a man for the United States
Senate who recorded his vote In favor
of the Payne-Aldrlch tariff. This
Bourne did and It is for this same Mr.
Bourne to explain to the satisfaction
of the Oregon voters wherein the
Payne.-Aldrlch tariff Is a progressive
measure. Albany Democrat
State's History Marred.
Bourne Is only a resident of the state
for political reasons. His wealthy Mas
sachusetts relatives want a Senator In
the family for social reasons and are
always willing to pay the price of an
election. He visits Oregon when the
exigencies of a campaign require, then
devoting most of his time to the or
ganization of an expensive campaign
bureau in Portland. . He Is saturated
with Standard Oil. as alleged by Colonel
Roosevelt, and not- successfuly denied
by Bourne In his alleged explanation of
his concern In attempting to secure the
dismissal of the Government's suit
agalnt the trust. Bourne's political
and personal record In Oregon Is any
thing but clean, in fact, the events In
which he participated, leading up to his
election as United States Senator, form
a black page in the state's political his
tory. Added to this record is his pres
ent position as an enemy of the direct
primary system through his refusal to
abide by the result and accept the de
feat administered to him by the Repub
lican voters last April Eugene Guard.
Our senior Senator claims to be one

to assure me I can depend upon their

behalf in the coming election. In doing
so they explain that they propose to
stand by the direct primary law. To
them the candidate Is a secondary con
sideration. They intend first to stand
for the primary law and the privilege
It confers on them of nominating their
own candidates for office". The voters
of Oregon had to battle too long for

and they frankly confess that they will
not sanction Its repudiation, to say
nothing of refusing to be a party to

Involves the permanency of the direct

Chamberlain's Stand Recalled.
Mr Clark reminded his audience that
In 1908, when Senator Chamberlain was
a candidate for the office he holds, the
policies for which Roosevelt stood and
the legislation he had'secured and rec
ommended, were fixed and settled nd
everybody knew what they were.
"In that campaign." followed Mr.
Clark, "Mr. Chamberlain went all over
this state proclaiming himself a non
partisan Reosevelt Democrat, enthusi
astically Indorsing and approving the
policies and Administration of Roose
velt. In March, 1908, Mr. Chamberlain.
In an interview, declared that Roose
velt 'had placed principle above party
and had antagonized the special Inter
ests, the trust magnates and the ma
chine politicians.' In the same inter
view, he made the statement that he
was in hearty accord with most of
the policies of Roosevelt."
Mr. Clark went on to quote from
other interviews and addresses deliv
ered by Mr. Chamberlain in that cam
paign In which he further Indorsed
the Roosevelt policies -nd the Roose
velt Administration, declaring in an
address at Heppner on May 5: "If elect
ed, I shall be found marching under
the banner unfurled by Roosevelt, who
stands for true Democracy." At an
other time Mr. Chamberlain in that
campaign was quoted as saying that
as Senator he would refuse to tie up
with any clique or faction that Would
not carry out the policies advocated
Present Attack Ridiculed.
The speaker charged that the at
tack of Senator Chamberlain on Roose
velt was "ridiculous, absurd and un
fair," In view of the fact that it was
made four years after the junior Sena
tor had given his unqualified indorse
ment of Roosevelt and his policies, and
particularly when that Indorsement was
given four years after the alleged im
proper campaign contributions had
been made for Roosevelt
Pursuing the subject further Mr.
Clark recalled that following the gen
eral election In 1908, when Mr. Cham
berlain had received the popular vote
for Senator, there was considerable dis
cussion as to whether the Republican
members of the Legislature would ob
serve their Statement No. 1 pledge and
vote for a Democrat for the Senator
ship. National Primary Wanted.
"It was about that time that Mr.
Chamberlain went to Washington and
saw President Roosevelt," said Mr.
Clark. "According to press dispatches
from Washington Mr. Chamberlain saw
the President October 5, 1908, and was
greeted as the 'Senator-to-be.' At the
same time and in the presence of five
other Senators, President Roosevelt
said to Mr. Chamberlain: 'I would have
preferred the election of a Republican,
but as I believe In the people ruling,
I now want you elected. Nobody
knows the extent to which that state
ment from President Roosevelt assist
ed In the ratification of Mr. Chamber
Iain's election by tha Legislature."
Taking up the Issues figuring in the
pending campaign, Mr. Clark said the
time had arrived when such men as
Archbold. Penrose. Murphy. Taggart
and their like "should be kicked out
of the Government of this country" and
the Government restored to the people
and administered in their interests, as
it was expected to be. Before it would
be possible to rid the country of the
political boss, particularly as he dic
tates and controls the nomination of
Presidential candidates and Influences

direct primary law would have to be

Although our views differ widely on some public questions, I
value very highly the painstaking industry and constructive capacity
which you have devoted to the work of your very important positions
In the Senate, and I am glad to learn that so many people in Oregon
appreciate your service and wish to keep you in the Senate. If
Oregon wishes to contribute her fair share to the government of the
country, she can do it in that way. To run a big government prop

of the men who are sent to Washington because they are popular at
home, simply sit around and do nothing, leaving the real work to be
done by a few. You are one of the few. R00T.
