Unquestionably President Roose
velt is popular in Oregon. Unques
tionably he will receive the largest
majority ever thrown for a candidate
in the state. But as an earnest of
their support for him the people of
Oregon ought to throw the largest
possible majority in June for the par
ty which, later in the month, will
make him its formal candidate. A
big majority in June will have enor
mous significance. Any majority in
November will suffice.
Closely connected with national
politics also is the election of repre
sentatives in congress. Hermann and
Williamson will be elected, of course;
but it is important that their majori
ties should go towards the highest
possible high-water mark. It is the
way'to assure the country of the
earnestness of Oregon for the party
and the cause of which President
Roosevelt now is the leading repre
Not for years, if ever before, have
the republicans of Oregon been so
generally in harmony as they are now.
Factional differences have passed
away," with disappearance of the
causes that produced them. The one
thing necessary is to get out the full
vote. Remember, therefore that this
is the last week of registration.
Two years ago the republican vote
for supreme judge was 49,876, and
the plurality was 17,146. The re
publican vote of the state next month
should not fall below 55,000, and may
much exceed that figure carrying
the plurality above 20,000. The ag
gregate plurality for representatives
in congress should be as large.
These results are legitimately to be
expected, on a full registration and a
full vote. Such majorities are due
to the country from the people
of Oregon. For Oregon has been
treated with great consideration by
the republican party and by President
Roosevelt The opportunity of re
quital will be presented in June. Let
us have a full vote. Oregonian.

" Brown's In Town."
"Brown's in Town" is said to be one
of the cleanest, brightest and funniest
entertainments seen in a long time.
The farce is of just the build and tex
ture that makes multitudes of laughs
and people would more readily be
laughed out of their money than they
would be willing to have it enticed away
by a frown or given up for a too serious
drama. This farcial effusion comes to
the opera house Thursday, May 26.
"Brown's in Town" is about a young
couple bo are living in the country un
der an assumed name, so the father of
the young man will not hear of the
match. Incidentally, every one they
know, the father, the wife's suitor, a
girl friend, and everybody who Bhould
be at home comes around and makes
things interesting. Of course it takes a
deal of prevarication to straighten things
out and before the audience knows it,
the Euitor of the wife is pretending to be
her husband and she is obliged to main
tain the supposed relationship The
whole thing about the play is "go "
When "Brown'' gets to running nothing
can stop him but "time to go home."

Cured His Mother of Rheumatism
A WORD WITH THE
VOTERS OF OREGON
"My mother has been a sufferer for
many years with rheumatism," saya W.
H. Howard of Husband, Pa. "At
times she was unable to move at all,
while at all times walking was painful.
I presented her with a bottb of Cham
berlain's Pain Balm and after a few ap
plications she dicided it was the most
wonderful pain reliever she had ever
tried, in fact, she is never without it
and is at all times able to walk. An oc
casional application of Pain Balm keeps
away the pain that she was formerly
troubled with." For sale by A. 0.

Republican State Central Committee, Portland,
Or., May 21. If the electors of this state will but ap
preciate the importance of the first gun to be fired off
this Presidential year, and will avail themselves of an
opportunity to-show their appreciation of President
Roosevelt and his policies, and their appreciation of
the doctrine ot the Republican party of this state as
enunciated in the platform adopted by the recent State
Convention, they will see to it that a full vote is polled
on the 6th day of next month. In that event, at least
100,000 votes will be cast, and the majority for Judge
Moore, our nominee for Supreme Judge, will beat least
20 per cent thereof, and the combined majorities of
onr Congressional nominees will equal 20,000.
All that is necessary for the people of the First dis
trict to manifest their appreciation of Hon. Binger
Hermann's services in Congress is for the voters of
that district to go to the polls and vote; and the same
thing may be said of Hon. J. N. Williamson, our nom
inee in the Second District. After the November
election nobody East will enquire how Oregon went,
but Republicans all over the United State, particularly
in doubtful states, should an unprecedentedly large
Republican majority be cast at the coming election,
will emphasize the question, "Have you heard from
Iu 18SS Mr. Hermann received a majority of 7407
the largest majority ever received up to that time,
there being but one Congressman then. Let the

RUSSIA'S STAR RISING.
St. Petersburg, May 21. Three things are of
interest here tonight. The first is the report that the
cruiser Bogatyr grounded off the tortuous Vladivostok
entrance, where she now lies waiting for assistance.
This the government officials deny, but their report is
doubted by niany.
The second feature of the war which brings much
joy to the Russian mind is that it has been proved
that by land the blockade of Port Arthur is not
The third is that by sea, when the time comes,
the Russian fleet can come forth, join its allies from
the Baltic and make short work through mere superi
ority of weight of the Japanese squadrons. Port Ar
thur is not bottled. The cork is out.
Certain it is that the tide has turned in Russia's
With the reversal of the Japanese advance from
Feng Huang Cheng, the gallant opening of the Port
Arthur line by Stoessel, permitting a ttain to pass
through to the beleaguered garrisou and the unbot
tling of the Port Arthur entrance, there seems to be
no doubt that Russia is nearly read' to assume the
GOVERNMENT HAS NEWS.
The government received news this evening
which is a practical confirmation of the report that the
rosd to Port Arthur is again open and that a battle
had been fought.
By wireless telegraphy plans were made for a
train to come through. General Stoessel at the head
of a detachment made a sally from the fortress and
met and defeated the Japanese at ajpoint some distance
from Port Arthur and nearly on a line with Port
The reports received here estimate that the Ja
panese lost nearly 1,000 killed and wounded.
The Russian list of casualties were less than 150.
The train which was loaded with supplies and am
munition, made its way to the port as soon as the port
was clear. The Japanese road destruction seems to
have been of a poor order, as the report indicates that
but little difficulty was found in making repairs.
Port Can be Entered,
It is reported here tonight, but without any of
ficial confirmation, that a dispatch has been received
through runners that the entrance to Port Arthur is
now sufficiently opened to permit of the fleets operat
ing whenever necessity arises. If this be true there
can be no doubt that the Japanese task of stopping
the fleet will prove a difficult one.
All arrangements are being made for the complete
outfitting of the Baltic fieet, which, when it j uus the
Port Arthur fleet, will prove formidable.
The Russians are now recovering their wonted
confidence and believe the outcome of the war will
prove most satisfactory.
The czar today attended a special prayer service
of thanksgiving for the recent change of fortune in the
war, and seemed for the time to have abandoned his
melancholy mien. He appears in better spirits than
for some time past, but remains fiim in his determina
tion to go to the front.
Q rent Monetary Deals.
Seldom have so many big financial op
erations come simultaneously as have
taken place within the past few days,
comments the Globe Democrat.
The United States has just paid out
$40,000,000 on account of the Panama
canal. Ruseia is floating a loan for from
$150,000,000 to $'00,000,000, and some of
the money is being put up by the United
States. More than half of Japan's $50,
000,000 loan ban been furnished in this
country, the rest of it being provided by
England. New York city has just bor
rowed $37,000,000 on its stock, at 3) per
cent interest, the money to be used on
public improvements which are design
ed to make that city one of the most at
tractive spots in the world.
Yet these vast monetary operations
have not unsettled the markets to any
perceptible degree. New York's loan
has all been taken in this country,
though Kurope'a investors were anxious
to share in the deal. A premium was
obtained for the stock, which nroves
that New York's credit is good, as it
ought to be. Gold is going out of the
country rapidly these day's on the Pan
ama canal and other accounts, but no
body is showing any concern about the
matter The working balance of the
treasury has been reduced by this $40,
000.000 disbursement, yet the cash on
hand is so Urge in amount that the void
due to the big outgo has not been noticed.
These thing show that the United
States is especially well provided with
cash. A comparison letween the pre
sent situation, when we are furnishing
money to other nations, and the situa
tion ten years ago, in Cleveland's daye,
when we were borrowing in order 10
prevent the country from dropping to
the silver basii, shows the contrast be
tween Republican and Democratic fin
anciering. This lesson will impress the
American people. Democratic adver
sity has been t-ucceeded bv Republican
prosperity, and the world at large, as
well as the American people, was quick
to discern the change. These big finan
cial operations of the past few days fnr- j
nish in themselves a powerful argument
for the retention of th Rinnlififjn nam? !
in control of the government. They will
add many thosands to the vote which
the Republican ticket will receive
hroughout the country in November.

band there had b on no kindness shown
