It is uniortuaate that the Si
mon faction, represented by Don
ald McKay's committee, could
not or would not accept the
Hirsch proposition for harmoniz
ing the two wings of the repub
lican party, or at least
some better plan. It is also to
be regretted that Mr. Simon's re
ply to Mr. Hirsch should indulge
in recriminations and in attempts
to disparage the efforts of Judge
Geo. H. Williams and Mr. Hirsch
toward harmonizing the party.
Such displays of bitterness
tend to widen the breach instead
of curing the differences and are
born of personal desire for re
venge rather than of good will
toward the republican party.
The letter of Mr. Hirsch care
fully avoided reference to the
reasons for the separation of the
We hope Mr. Hirsch will not
take up the gauntlet thrown
down by Mr. Simon and renew
the useless debate as to which
faction was wrong two years ago.
Such discussions will not help
the party and will not promote
peace. But in justice to Mr.
Hirsch and Judge Williams it is
proper to state that both gentle
men were on the Simon ticket
as delegates to the republican
convention two years ago and
both have always been-staunch
supporters of the gold standard.
In the subseqocnt regretable, di
vision caused by the methods
used in conducting the primary
elections, Judge Williams acted
impartially, and Sears, a Simon
man, was through his efforts
nominated for circiut judge. He
supported Beebe rather thaw
Cohen for mayor against Penuoy
cr, because he thought Beebe
was the strongest candidate, and
the election proved his judgment
to be correct. Judge- Williams
has been honest, loyal and pa
triotic in his efforts to forward
the interests of the nartv.rmd re-
r j ,
publicans of Oregon, however,
their other views may differ, will
resent uncalled for reflections
upon his actions.
The republicans outside of
Portland insist that the two fac
tions shall come together. There
will be 110 more divided delega
tions seated. The republican
party of Oregon will not take up
the Portland quarrel. Let the
primaries be so conducted that
every republican will know that
his vote is properly counted and
so conducted that he will not
have to depend upon the assur
ance of Mr. Simon or his lieu
tenants to know this. Let Mr.
Simon withdraw his rejection of
tne nirscn plan or propose one j
that will absolutely ensure hon
est primaries. Otherwise let him
not look to the remiblicans of i
Oregon for recognition.
THE PArTFaBOVE MEN.
A Mr. Pearson, who is angry
on account of not being endorsed 1
by Senator Mitchell for some
federal position, writes a long
letter in the Oregonian concern-1
ing: the matter and threatens to 1
write more. He quote..; one let-1
ter received from the ex-senator,
which is, in part, as follows:
"As I am not now a member of
the Oregon delegation I will not
be active or take part in matters j
of appointments. All ;
the appointments will be con
trolled bv our present delegation
.congress, namely, senator
iUCi-sriae, ana Kepresenrauvts
r " , j T 1
Tongue and Ellis. The ex's
will not count much, whether!
the name is Corbett or Mitchell.
So far as Mr. Maxwell is con
cerned, however, neither he norj
any other of the crowd who re- 1
fused to take the oath and w
held up the legislature is entitle
to any consideration at the hands
of the administration.
Yonrs verv sincerely, John H.
The ex-senator can hardly be
discredited by the publication of
sucli " I ' m-attendi ng-to-m y-own-busiucss"
sort of letter, but since
Mr. Mitchell has had the good
grace to keep his ambition from
preventing any opportunity for
n-priDilcau success in cue coming
election, and since the republi
cans of the state have determin
ed to ignore Mitcliellism or anti
Mitchellisin as an issue between
republicans, it is unfortunate
that his political and personal
enemies keep thrusting his name
into every discussion.
It is again proper to remind
the Portland leaders that the re
publican party of Oregon will
not be sacrificed for one man's
ambition or auother man's hatred.
Culls and Comments.
An editorial in Self Culture lor
December, discussing the person
ality of the late G. M. Pullman,
ith the following sentence:
"May Charon's barque have been
as luxurious and cosy as one of
his own Palace Car sleepers in its
ferriage of his remains over the
Stvx." Isn't this a bull? That
which does not remain but is fer
ried away, can scarcely be proper
ly termed "remains."
A Lorest drove man testifies in
the Hatchet to the virtue of a cer
tain remedy and he ascribes to its
power the stated lact that '-my
kidneys were very bad and both
ered me very much and that it all
removed. Its endorsement as a
remover of kidneys might not be
a good advertisement of the med
The Oregonian recently criticis
ed Mavor Van Wyck, of New
York, for using in his inaugural
address the expression, "every
Qne jn pubjic jitc mugt understand
that they, etc., ' claiming that
"every one they" is very bad
grammar. The Forest Grove
Hatchet criticises the criticism and
quotes that eminent authority
Joseph Fitzgerald,who says: " 'Ev
erv one' in comprehension is plur
al, and that fact lully justifies
such usages as 'every 0110 brought
I heir own provisions." John liusk
in, the greatest living master of
English, uses ihe plural 'their at
ler 'ariv on?,
every ono' and the
What wonderful logie and con
venient forgetfulness is manifested
in so many political arguments.
Here is the Times remarking: "If
l here were a way to veto bad laws
without the agency of legislative
sessions, outrages like the railroad
commissions could never be per
petualed. To accomplish such
results is the proposed aim of the
initiative and referendum." Who
perpetrated this "outrage?" It was
not the railroads they wanted no
commission. It was the dear peo
ple themselves who demanded the
law, and the grange organizations
were the most active supporters of
the bill. This is not to say I hat
the grangers were so very sinful
in committing the outrage, for the
practical man knows that much
has been accomplished by the
commission in securing lower and
more uniform rate. A one-man
commission could accomplish as
much, but the initiative and refer
endum advocates can make few
converts by such examples.
"Poor Tom Cooper, of Ben ton,
has his counterpart in every dead
lock," remarks the Oregonian. If
every legislature had more Tom
Cooper;, anxious to do the will of
their constituents, and fewer Si
mons, ready to sacrifice party and
slate to attain personal ends, there
would be less agitation of populis
tic ideas. Poor Tom Cooper, by
the way, is doing very well, thank
you, and is state committeeman
for Benton couwtv.

SING A SONG
"This requires no sacrifice of principle. It is simply com
mon sense. If we would all move for a common cause, why
not all travel by the same road?" John Henry in the Times.
Let all the people listen. Let all the people hear
The lusty voice now sounding an alarm.
Prophetic eyes that keenly into the future peer,
Unblinded by the toilings of the farm,
Have seeM some awful doings by fiends in politics
Have watched them in the fixing of the screws.
To thwart their ugly scheming, confound their knavish tricks,
John Henry mounts the fejice and cries, "Let's fuse."
(Then a wise old populist, wh was born some time ago,
And up on politicians' means and modes,
Says, "That sounds mighty earnest, but Johnny do yon know
That a 'fuse' is fixed to something that explodes?
Now was this cry of 'union' just hatched out by itself,
Or by democratic lawyers up in town?
And don't it mean that they'uns will capture all the pelf
While pops must look to heaven for their crown?")
"Reform," says good John Henry; "reform's" the battle cry.
The forces of reform will win the day.
Awake ye sous of labor,, the money powers defy;
The common people now will have their say;
The virtue of my mission, the greatness of my cause
Has stirred up all the life blood in my veins;
Beneath the flag of fusion well rectify the laws
And show that in this laud the poor man reigns."
(And the wise old populist, with a twinkle in his eye,
Says, "How about the prohi's, Brother John?
Did your new party promise that it would go it dry
Or did they put their principles in pawn?
Now here's a little question that bothers lots of men
What offer were the prohi's made to fuse?
And will the Neal Dow doctrine try Oregon again,
Assisted by stiff democratic booze?")
"Reform!" cries brave John Henry, "just watch me as I go,
Demolishing the foemen of reform;
You'll see the wealth-power totter before the blossoms blow."
(And here the chorus sings, "you're not so warm.")
"Come all ye honest people, just follow where I lead;
We'll give the gold bugs several kinds of blues.
To nullify their scheming, defend us from their greed,
We'll harmonize, we'll organize, we'll fuse."
(And the wise old populist, who still stood on his feet,
Said, grinning and a winking of his eye,
"Your talk is rather fetching. Your plan smells rather sweet,
But that won't catch the popHlistic fly.
We've tried this lott'ry business. We've always drawn the
We'll paddle our own canoe upon this cruise.
Your 'union' invitation we will decline with thanks,
And the only fuse we'll do will be re-fuse.")
