First-Time Balloters Told to
Realize Importance of
STAY IN PARTY, HE SAYS
Prominent Oregon Politician Warns
Against Putting Democrats In
Power Selling's Fitness
Is Highly Extolled.
PENDLETON. Or., Oct.- 2. Spe
cial.) At Milton today Judge Stephen
A. Lowell made a special appeal to the
young men, especially those casting
their first ballot, of the county to give
serious consideration to the conditions
which would be brought about if Wil
son were elected, declaring another
great panic similar to 1893. and tinker
ing with the tariff, wttl result if a
Democrat goes into the White House
next term. A strong plea was. made
for all progressive Republicans to re
main in the party, stating that a
"house divided against itself cannot
At Freewater Lowell spoke to a large
crowd, indorsing heartily Selling for
Senator and Taft for President. In
the event a Democratic President
should be elected. Judge Lowell sees
urgent need to retain the Senate safe,
as a protective tariff body, standing
for reasonable protective principles,
reasonable protection for American la
bor. Industry and productions and yet
for such reduction of the tariff as will
make its benefits just to all. Mr.
Lowell indorsed Ben Selling for the
next Senator from Oregon.
Bourne Branded Unfit.
Bourne he branded as unfit because
he could not be trusted, and Lane be
cause of his weakness, of the Demo
cratic party, which is a low tariff or
ganization, leaning toward a tariff for
revenue only. At Milton Judge Lowell
.said In part:
"Tou are about to exercise, perhaps
for the first time, the highest privilege
of American citizenship, the right to
vote, and before you approach the bal
lot booth there may well be a season
of thoughtful contemplation, each ask
ing himself in the light of the Nation's
history, 'For what do I stand, and bow
shall I cast my vote to make it count
largest for the perpetuity of the great
Republic and the prosperity of its peo
ple? Lrara the Truth, He Says.
"Before you vote for Wilson and Mar
shall it will be best for you to have a
quiet conference with your fathers or
other thoughtful men of middle life,
and learn the truth as to the clouds
and thick darkness which compassed
this land during the last Democratic
Administration, from 1893 to 1897. The
only lamp to light your pathway is that
of human experience. Do not accept
as unquestioned truth the utterances
of newspapers and platform orators
who declare that the business and in
dustrial world has nothing to fear from
Democratic triumph. The most of
them told us the same story when Gro
ver Cleveland was a candidate, and we
found them false prophets. Hard times,
hitter, woeful, destructive. heart
breaking, came then. I. for one, do
not care to try the experiment again.
"It may be that some of you have
been hypnotized by the unique concep
tion and theatrical birth of the candi
dacy of Roosevelt and Johnson. If so,
I appeal to you to read your histories
before you vote, and know the decline
and fall of the popular governments of
the past. If Roosevelt is now elected,
the safe admonition of Washington
and Jefferson that eight years should
be the limit of any man in the Presi
dency will die, and the Republlo will
begin its career toward empire. Such
is the lesson of history.
"And another thing. Tou have a
lifetime before you. Would you like
a fair opportunity to carve out for
yourself an industrial, commercial or
business career? Are you Interested in
a fair opportunity and a square deai
for the average man? If so, you should
hesitate long before you lndorss the
Roosevelt scheme for legalizing the
vast trusts of the country. They are
a menace to industrial liberty and
business opportunity now.
Old Party Offers Most.
"To my mind, and I speak as a radi
cal progressive, the surest promise for
the young manhood of America, for
restoration of opportunity for the man
of small means, for perpetuity of the
Government of the people, for National
prosperity, for the ultimate triumph of
progressive principles, is to support
Taft and Sherman. If the progressive
Republicans remain within the party,
they will occupy a vantage point in the
party councils when the smoke has
rolled away, and their Influence will
ultimately leaven the loaf of our po
litical lite. We are battling for great
principles, and a house divided against
itself cannot stand."
At Freewater Judge Lowell said in
"Oregon's interests clearly require
the election of Ben Selling, Republi
can direct primary nominee, to the
United States Senate.
"As election day approaches men are
foregoing indulgence in theory, getting
away from the hypnotism of new Issues
and spectacular candidates, and are
realizing the responsibility of citizen
ship. It is now the period when each
man roust consider his own Interests,
view his pocketbook. and weigh the
claims of candidates in the balance of
his own experience.
' Selling Not Theoretical.
"Therefore the drift is to the Repub
lican ticket, not because it is Republi
can, for party harness hangs loosely
these days, but because upon the basis
of every-day experience its policies
have been found to benefit the country
as a whole, and to make for better
prices, better wages, freer circulation of
money and for public confidence. The
party is far from perfect, but it is a
mlarlity sight better than experiment.
"Upon this basis thinking voters of
all parties are finally likely to cast their
ballots for Ben Selling because it is
realized that he Is not dealing in any
theoretic tariff policies, and that, be
cause of possible loss of the Presidency,
It will be the part of wisdom to kee,&
an anchor to the windward, and retain
the Senate safe as a protective tariff
'Bourne was in the Senate when the
extravagant Payne-Aldrich bill was en
acted, and permitted Aldrich to sub
stantially vote his as a rubber stamp.
He cannot be trusted to stand for the
Interests of the great producing West.
He is a Massachusetts manufacturer
and his interests are In cheap raw ma
terials. He will not do."
