COR7ALLI3, OREGON, FEB. 28, 1835.
OREGON'S NEW SENATOR.
The election of Mr. McBride was a
bappy accident. Although a prominent
tuan in Oregon politics, his name had
not been mentioned iu connection -with
the senatorsuip until a day or so before
his election, and he was not regularly
nominated until jnst before tlie ballot
that settled the senatorial controversy.
The new senator comes from what the
old Yamhillitee call the "royal family,"
from the fact that there are eighteen
children in the family, and nearly all of
them have gained distinction iu various
fic-!u3 of usefulness.
Mr. McBride hqs served the state in
several capacities. As a member of the
legislature he gaine.ithe reputation of
biing one of the most active and success
ful -workers in that body that the state
ha3 evar had. As speaker of the house
ba showed himself to be a thorough
p-irUaiuentsriau andic that capacity facil
itated tha transaction of legislative busi
ness. His services as secretary of state
during a period of eight years gave uni
versal satisfaction, and the legislative
committee that investigated his office
this mouth reported that they could not
epeak too' highly of the manner in which
he conducted that office.
Mr. JlcUride is a gentleman of win
cing presence; has a reputation as a
friend maker ond is deservedly popular
witb the general public. Like Sir.
Mitchell, he is in close sympathy with
the people, and is not apt to forget that
it is them he represents. He must real
ize that his election was made possible by
the righteous revolt of the people against
ring rule and corporation influence. He
is a true bimettalist rather than a radical
gold man or an ultra silver advocate. In
Mr. McBride the white metal has a friend,
who believes in restoring it to its proper
position as money. ."He is too much a
man of the people to ever attempt to
override their wishes in'anancial matters.
While Mr. McBride is a speaker of earn
estness and force, he will gain more re
nown in the senate as an efficient worker
than as an orator.
Mr. McBride is a man of sterling integ
rity, not only in general matters, but
what is more rare, in political a flairs.
He is more of a statesman than a politi
cian,, and will represent Oregon with
credit, dignity'and efficiency.
Beingja young man? his selection is
particularly gratifying to the younger
element of the ' party. Probably there
could have been no other candidate
elected that would give more general
satisfaction than Mr. McBride. It will
have the effect of closing the breaches
and settling the differences which the
long contest has engendered. The party
was on the verge of a dangerous disrup
tion which has happily been averted by
the election of a man who was identified
with neither faction. In his election the
Oregon legislature has done well. j
The appointment of W. E. Yates as re
gent of the Oregon Agricultural College,
gives general satisfaction and especially
iu this county where he is well known.
He is a graduate of the college and has
been identified with school work most of
the time daring!) the past fifteen years.
In making thejappointrnent, Governor
Lord realized the importance of select
ing one member from the town in which
the institution is located. It is essential
to the welfare of tbe institution that the
hoard should be informed as to the de
tailed workings of the college, that abuses
may be remedied and its needs cared for.
This can only be accomplished well by a
resident member of the board. In Mr.
YateSj'.vill be found' an active, energetic
and determined worker for the advance
ment of the best interest of the college.
There is no man who stands higher in
the community than Mr. Yates, and' the
board will have implicit confidence in his
reports. His appointment is. an especial
satisfaction to members of the filurnut
association, who were anxious that they
should have a representative on the
board. The selection of Mr. Yates is
particularly gratifying to the GazbTX.I,
ns this paper advocated the appointment
of an alumnus, and mentioned Mr. Yates
iiad Jar. ihvson as acceptable material.
SSXATOR. Carter gave a clear expression
ci a palpable truth last week in the dis
cussion of the University approprition.
Ke argued against high salaries of state
officers. Teu years ago, he siaid, three
thousand bushels of wheat would bring
three thousand dollars, now the same
amount of wheat will bring him only one
thousand dollars. . The price of other
farm products had fallen in proportion.
In other words, the purchasing power ,of
a dollar has increased three fold. But
tlie salaries of state officials have not
been thus proportionately reduced, but
on the contrary, in many instances have
been increased. So, while the income of
a farmer has been lessened or annihila
ted, his taxes for the support of these
non-producers have grown. The mere
statement of the matter shows the injus
tice of it.
From the 7th to the 12th of January
the number of steerage passengers arriv
ing at New York was less than the num
ber departing, the figures being 1201 and
1740 respectively. This is an adverse
balance of trade which the people of this
country can hear about with the utmost
The Oregonian severely criticises the
legislature for extravagances and predicts
trouble ahead for the republican party on
account of its pledges to the people for
economy which it . has not carried out.
Many will accept this charge as correct,
just because the great daily makes it It
is, however, almost criminally misleading-,
and is designed to cover up the do-
ings of the Simon-Dolph ring, which is
' persistently supported by the Oregonian.
! Every measure of economy attempted by
j the "noble thirty," who opposed the ring
was defeated by the Dolph faction, aided
by the Oregonian.
j The house, which contained twenty
I seven of the "thirty," repealed the rail
road commission law. The senate, which
contained only three of the noble band,
refused to concur. The house refused to
make an appropriation for this commis
sion; but the senate placed it in the ap
propriation bill and sent it back to the
house at the last minute, thus compelling
that body to agree or make no appropri
ations at all, and thus stop the whole
machinery of the state. The same is
also trne of the domestic animal commis
sion appropriation, which the house cot
to $4,000, and was raised in the senate to
$3,ooo. The house passed a bill cutting
down sainries of couuty officials. The
senate did not allow it to come up for ac
tion. The house passed an assessment
and taxation law, providing for the taxa
tion of mortgages and the exemption of
iudebtsduess, but the bill never saw day
light after reaching the senate. Bill after
bill cutting down salaries and loppiDg off
expenses was passed b3" the efforts of tha
twenty-seven heroes in the house, only
to be defeated or pocketed by the sen&ts
where all republicans, except three, were
upholding Simon in trying to elect Dolph.
The men who tried to elect the ma
chine senator; the men who tried to pass
Simon's charter bill and thus place the
political destiny of Portland, and indi
rectly the whole state, in his hands
the Simon majority of the senate are
responsible for the extravagances of the
legislature, and they shall not escape the
responsibility to the people. Squirm as
they may behind their bulwark of de
fense, the "L-reat Daily." They shall be
dragged forth and held up to the gaze of
aju3tly indignant people. The public,
now fully arroused, will never again listen
with meek credulity to the silly defenses
offered forjtheta by the ring organ.
tn i wi
Thk Gazette, during the senatorial
contest just closed, favored especially the
election of Governor Lord. This was
done simply because it seemed that he
was the strongest candidate, and one on
whom all factions might possibly unite.
However, the movement was not one of
personality; but of principle. It was a
fight against Dolph. Not on account of
his coldness, or his unpopular personal
qualities, but because he was the repre
sentative of the corporations and the
machine; because he was the candidate
of Joe Simon, who had betrayed the party
time and time again; because of his ad
vocation of a radical gold policy. The
thing was not to elect Mr. Lord, Mr. Ful
ton, Mr. Tongue, or any other man in
particular. The thing was to defeat Mr.
Dolph, the candidate of all those inter
ests which the people opposed. That
defeat has been accomplished. . The
"thirty" who stood again stj Mr. Dolph
are to be heartily congratulated; not be
cause they won a personal victory for
themselves, but because they did their
duty by the people, who trusted them to
represent their interests in the state leg
islature. The Gazette has no apology
for its advocacy of Governor Lord. Mr.
Lord would have made a good sen
ator. The Gazette is satisfied with the
result, and feels confident that Mr. Mc
Bride will represent the state with all
Thomas H. Cooper returns to his con
stituents with a clear conscience and a
consciousness that he has merited and is
receiving their decided approval of his
course as a legislator. Every equitable
measure of economy received jhis active
support. Mr. Cooper's several changes
of vote in the senatorial contest have been
cuiticised somewhat, but in reality this
changing was due to a desire on his part
to truly represent the desires of the peo
ple of this county. His return to Dolph
after leaving him -was due to gross mis
representation by several Benton county
politicians. Personal investigation unde
ceived him as to the choice of Benton
republicans, and he again voted with the
"thirty" who finally won the victory.
It has been said that Mr. Cooper's defec
tion from the Dolph ranks really decid
ed the Simon senator's defeat. It
strengthened those who wera opposing
him in that that it showed the popular
will was supporting them and they might
count on accessions from the Dolph ranks
at any time. Mr. Cooper can well be
proud of his first experience in the legis
lative hall6 of the state. The Gazette
can only say to him "well done thou
good and faithful servant."
Governor Lord appointed as regents
of the Agricultural College, Benton ICil
lin, a prominent agriculturalist of Wash
ington county, H. B. Miller,- a leading
lumber manufacturer of Grants Pass, and
W. E. Yates, of Corvallis." Mr. Killin is
a democrat and the other two are repub
licans. The nominations of all three
gentlemen are favorably received by
friends of the institution. The high
standing of the appointees evidences
careful consideration of the qualifications
of the proposed members of the board
by the executive.

SIMON'S DYNASTY COMPLETELYl
. The election of George W. McBride to
succeed J. N. Dolph, after one of the most
determined contests known in modern
politics, marks an era in the history of
Oregon which will not be soon forgotten.
It is a victory vfhich the best element of!
the republican party have been striving
to achieve for many years. But few far
mers have gone to' the legislature during
the past fifteen years, -who have not re
turned home to their constituents embit
tered against the political ring which has
just been overthrown.
It is of no use for those who have no
interest in the victory, except to ridicule
and belittle the righteous and unright
eous alike, to try to make anyone believe
the legislature has not completely put its
seal of condemnation upon Joseph Si
mon and his adherents. The little cor
ruptiocist came up to the senate this time
with more than his usual amount of
assurance. This is evinced by the num
ber of corrupt schemes which he had pre
pared, feeling no doubt fully assured that
the ever obedient legislature would stand
by him as it had so often in the past.
Just what his feelings were when he saw
his little charter bill, which modestly
turned over to him the city of Portland,
completely demolished, no one can tell.
All, however, can imagine the consterna
. tion which must have filled his little soul
as one after another of his little pets were
, ruthlessly slaughtered. In vain his
. smooth laid plans were tried; pleasant
smiles, aud subtle parliamentary tactics
! were of no avail, and when at last, obedi
j ent to his call, Oregon's greatest orator,
: Henry McGinn, thrilled the senate with
j his thundering eloquences, urging the
: delivery of oar metropolis to his master,
the iron entered Simon's soul, because
the house refused to concur.
Of all the litter of schemes with which
the Simon ring was pregnant, but one
was safely delivered and survives today.
The railroad company, of which Simon
! is the attorney, did not like to trust the
election of railroad commissioners even
to the Oregon legislature, and preferred
that therpresent board should remain
undisturbed. By continuing to vote for
Dolph for hours after every one knew
he could not be elected, tha time until
adjournment was consumed, and election
of railroad commissioners prevented.
The old board holds two years longer,
and as it shows more of a disposition to
raise rates than to lower them, it will
save hundreds of thousands of dollars to
Simon's company in the future as it
has in the past. Meanwhile our farmers
are called upon to pay twenty thousand
dollars for its support This is the only
trophy saved from the wreck. It is to be
hoped Simon may never return to the
same battlefield to secure such another.
The leaders in the lobby against the
Simon combination were Johnathan
Bourne and W. P. Keady. They deserve
credit for their skillful checkmating of
Dolph's movements. Their fight was a
clean, open one, and they have escaped
from the contest without the. smell of

THQ NEW REGENT.
Benton county now has a representation
on the board of regents of the Agricultural
college; the alumni association also have a
representative. His name is W. E. Yates.
It was a most fortunate selection and will
give general satisfaction. The name of W.
E. Yates was mentioned for the place sev
eral weeks ago by the Gazette, and this
paper feels especially pleased over the re
sult. Mr. Yates is ayonng, active, energetic
business man, deservedly popular, and Gov
ernor Lord is to be congratulated for having
made such fortunate and entirely satisfac
tory selection. The appointment came en
tirely unsolicited on the part of Mr. Yates,
and he naturally feels highly complimented
that the governor should select him from
among the many prominent men of the state
for so honorable a position, when several
applications for tho place from influential
citizens were on file, accompanied by strong
letters of recommendation. In the new
regent the institution will find a friend who
will ever be found woikiDg industriously
for its welfare and advancement. The other
two regents appoiuted were, Benton Killin,
a well-to-do farmer and prominent citizen of
Washington county, and H. B. Miller, an
extensive lumber manufacturer of Grants
Pass, and one of the best known and in
fluential citizens of the state. Each of the
appointments evidence careful consideration
of the qualifications of each of the appointees.
William E. Yatss was born on his father's
f.-irci three miles east of Corvallis, in Linn
county, Oregoc, and is 3S years of age. Un
til 55 years old he lived at his birthplace.
His early educatiou was obtained in the dis
trict school, but during the last four years
of the lim 8 bo wr.3 living on the farm, he
attended tho Agricultural College, from
which institution he graduated in June 1380,
with the degree Master of Arts. The next
year he was retsino-l in hij a'ma mater as a
tutor. Tuia position he gave up for the chair
of language in Monmouth colltge, which he
held four years. 11 was then elected
county school superintendent of Polk county
and served one torm. Returning again to
CorvalliF. ho was two years superintendent
of tho Ccrvaliis public schools, and was
again elected school superintendent, this
time of Benton oonnty.

since his admisaiea as an attorney, Mr,

that he will make a most efficient member
of the board of regents of the college.

A little over a year ago a company of
young men from the Agricultural Col

the enpremncy in football. Their victory
was flashed over the wires before the mod

depot on their return they were met with a
brass band, and a vast concourse of citizens
with flaming banners. A herald went forth
to proclaim their achievements. Monday
there returned a single contestant in the
oratorical contest, biinging home with him
second honors. No assembled throng was
