tion; but the proposition mado by
Governor Chamberlain to the law
makers of Oregon is just as far-reaching
in its spirit of usurption of power
by extorting a promise from the law
makers, that they will obey his dic
tates rather than their oath as law
makers, that they will stultify them
selves by giving a promise in advance
of assembly and thus cut themselves off
from working for any measure which
under oath they have sworn to ad
vance for the best interest of the
State as Oliver Cromwell's act was
when he drove the members from
their seats in parliament by the power
of his troopers.
We hope that not a single republi
can member of tne Legislature will
Btultify himself and thus be a part of
the tail of Governor Chamberlain's
cannot believe that they have all en
tered into a most damnable conspira
cy to take away the liberly or charac
ter of Malcolm A Moody on a tramped
up charge. To say that Moody is
the victim of such a conspiracy is
going a little too far. It is about
time to ring down the curtain on The
Most Honorable Malcolm A. Moody
and find another issue for Oregon's
THE REPUBLIC OF PANAMA.
Governor Chamberlain has decided
to call a SDecial session of the Ore-
iron Leerislature to take into consid
eration the tax problem and to frame
and pass a new law. But before he
does so, he desires to throw all re
sponsibility for his action on the Leg
islature and if there is any glory in
the passage of the law he proposes
to stand back and say to the taxpay
ers of Oregon: See what a mighty
statesman and law maker I am. My
wisdom has saved the credit of the
To tell the exact, unvarnished
truth Governor Chamberlain dare not
refuse to call the Legislature togeth
er because Portland demands that the
Legislature be convened.
The Governor knows that a major
ity of the Legislators are republicans.
He knows that the minority consist
ing of democrats look upon him as
their god and the savior and salt of
their party and will do exactly what
he advises them to do; and for politi
cal effect he has addressed a letter to
every member of the joint Legisla
ture telling them that if they desire
to pass a new tax law, that he will
convene the state law makers; but
before he will do so, that a majority
of the members must give him their
solemn promise as binding as an oath,
that they individually will only pass
a tax bill and then adjourn; that no
other legislation however urgent,
shall be taken into consideration.
The Plaindealee for thirty years
has been watching legislative bodies
and never before has such a piece of
specious, political sculduggery come
within our knowledge. The idea of a
Governor of any state trying to evade
responsibility; trying to throw the
entire responsibility for calling the
Legislature together on the legisla
tors themselves; trying to extort
promise from the republicans that
they will do so and so and no more
and asking them to put the gag in
their own mouths and bind them
selves with shackles as the slaves of
a Governor whose act is that of poll
tical trickster, plotroon and coward.
There is another piece of legisla
tion needing attention of the legisla
ture to save the "State expense; and
that is the repeal of the Portage
railroad bilL The Federal govern
ment is going to dig a canal so that
steamboats can pass around the falls
of the Columbia river but Governor
Chamberlain wants the Portage rail
road to be built as well and he does
not want the appropriation to be
spent under his administration inter
fered with and here i3 the milk in
the cocoanut regarding the pledge.
Then again the Governor in his inter
view talks very glibly about "hasty
legislation" and yet he wants the
Legislature to assemble, organize,
get down to business, pass a mo3t
momentous measure affecting the in
terest of every taxpayer in the State
and adjourn in two day's time.
If this would not be "hasty legis
lation" we cannot conceive of any
measure being pushed through more
hastily and without due considera
If Governor Chamberlain was look
ing out for the true interests of the
State and not his own political ag
grandisement he would convene the
Legislature as becomes the Governor
of Oregon and then he could notify
the law makers that he would veto
every law passed except the tax bilL
But he attempts to dodge such
straight forward method for if the
Portage appropriation was reconsid
ered and annulled it would devolve
upon him to approve the bill,under the
circumstances if such a bill was passed
he dare not veto it.
Then again the Legislature is
sovereign body the Governor is its
executive. It is for the Legislature
to pass laws and the Governor's duty
to see the laws as passed are en
forced. It is for the law makers of
the State to dictate what the Gover
nor shall do and not for the Governor
to dictate what the Legislature shall
do. This attempted assumption of
unheard of power and authority by
Governor Chamberlain in his attempt
to be the Dictator of Oregon should
be set down on very hard by the Leg
islature or he will be very apt to call
the military force of the State like
Oliver Cromwell, the Dictator of Eng
land, and with the military force dis
miss the session of the Legislature if
it does not suit him.
We may laugh at such a proposi-
form, under present conditions, to
extending the franchise, except for
ocal purposes, to any colony or ter
ritory outsido these United States.
PROTECTION OF LMJOR.
Destructive Effects of Reciprocity
Competitive Products Upon
In our last issue was published the
statement that the people or rather a
few politicians living on the Isthmus
of Panama had started a revolution
against the Republic of Columbia
and that the three head revolutors
had formed themselves into a junta
(the word is pronounced hunta) and
had declared the Isthmus of Panama
to be a new republic free and inde
pendent of Columbia.
The revolution was a bloodless one
and seems to have been backed up by
Uncle Sam in opposition to the Amer
ican transcontinental railroads who
controlled the politics of Columbia
and caused that greaser republic to
refuse to ratify the Panama Canal
treaty. For the past two months the
citizens of Colon and Panama have
been in unrest and it seems that a
few adverturous Americans have
helped along the feeling; and about
one week ago a revolution was started
against the Columbian government
and the new republic of Panama has
been declared to be a de iacto gov
ernment by the United States; and
the Panama canal treaty with Pana
ma instead of Columbia is beinsr dis
cussed and the new treatv will go
through without fiction and especially
so as Uncle Sam has sent war vessels
and marines enough to protect Pana
ma from Columbia and the rest of the
South American republics.
The railroads are checkmated and
their only hope now will be to defeat
the new treaty in the U. S. Senate.
OFF AS USUAL.
L The Plaindkalkk,
The object of the adoption of the Con
stitntion was to make laws for the Pro
tection of labor effective. Daniel Web
ster, at Albany, August 27, 1814, public
ly declared :
I defy the man, in any degree conver
sant with history, in any deureo ao
quainted with the annals of this coun
try from 17S7 to 1789, when the Consti
tution was adopted, to say that rrotcc-
tion of American labor and industry
was not a leading, I might almost say
the leading, motive, boutn as well as
North, for the formation of the new gov
ernmenl. Without that provision m
the Constitution it never could have
nen tne last t'roicctive law was
passed producers of competitive pro
ducts were personally consulted, and
such rates of Protection adopted as thei
advice critically examined seemed to re
quire. Under that Protection as parties
oi tne seconu pari mey employed more
labor at a better wage, and prosperity
Any one of these proposed treaties of
reciprocity is a proposition, by the party
of the first irt, to cut down the con
tract aluc of that law without the con
sent of the party of the second part ;
high-handed proceeding which would
meet witn universal condemnation in
an oruinary real estate transaction or
oven a transportation contract.
As regards Cuba: If wo have not yet
done enough for that aforetime un
happy people, let us continue to help
them as we helped them before, by
drawing upon the National Treasury
without interfering with even the small
est group of our ware earners. Wi

If we are to give Cuba a better slice of
our market than to others, let us give

The Roseburg Plaindealer, a republi
can paper, is about the onlv paper that
has declared Ex-Congressman Moody
guilty of the charges recently made
against him. Even the democratic pa'
pers are charitable enough to state that
the evidence is very poor against him
and there is brobably nothing in the af
fair. Albany Democrat.
The Plaindealer is off, as is usual witli
it, that's all. Nobody believes Moody
guilty. The onlv questionable thing
about it ia the statement that he paid
the woman only f 200 and had her sign
a receipt for (323. But it is not thought
he robbed her out of the $65. Salem
The Plaindealer has not declared
"X-Congressman Moody guilty of the
charges made against him. But we
do ask these questions:
Why did Moody obtain the letter
by false pretenses?
Why did he not give the letter to
the widow if he forgot to mail it af
ter he had fraudulently- obtained it?
Why did he open the letter himself
and make away with the contents?
Why did he attempt to bunco the
widow out of the sum stated above
aucn acts it he were a poor man
would be looked upon and denounced
as the work of a scoundrel but being
a rich man and a man of supposed
high station bold robbery turns to
"klep-to-mania" and a confidence game
far worse than running a victim up

"Off as usual" there is not a demo
cratic paper in Oregon that has abili
ty enough to call it down on any po
sition it has taken. Our position in
this lamentable disgrace to the State
is: Let Moody suffer the penalty of
his crime if crime there be; for the
disgrace and humiliation is ten times
greater to the State to cover up
crime than to punish it. When men,
high in position, are made to pay the
penalty for violating law there will
be fewer low down criminals to pun
ish. It is anarchists in high positions
that the United States has to dread,
not the noisy, political montebank
haranging a crowd on the street cor
ners in Chicago or New York. Any
violator of law is an anarchist and
any man who substitutes his own pri
vate law for the law of the land is an
anarchist also. The Plaindealer
will stand by the enacted laws of the
United States and the United States
courts in the enforcement of the
laws and all other newspapers can
take their own course. We stand by
the postmaster at The Dalles, the bank
receiver, the woman whom Moody at
tempted to swindle, the U. S. Dist.

A final word as to "McKinley reci

that, our side. It put in the hands of
the President a weapon by which he
could compel a nation, under epeciGed
conditions, to treat us with as large
commercial consideration as it treated
other nations. It was no more like

The Plaindealer objects to mak

after licking the Spaniards and set

it seems a hard proposition to turn
