Mr. Hermann is an efficient repre
sentative, and worthy of the support
of every republican voter in his dis
trict and of every democratic voter,
too; for democrats, if they could
elect the representative, could no
elect one so efficient, says the'Ore
gonian. As to politics of course
"that's different" Men in large num
bers will act in politics simply from
the party point of view, without re
gard to actual facts or conditions, or
rational considerations. This is the
reason why the vote in Oregon for
Bryan in 1896 was much larger than
that ever cast since for a democratic
candidate, and larger than any vote
likely to be cast for a democratic
candidate during the next ten years.
Since the passing of the silver craze
the democratic party in Oregon has
been phenominally weak. It is able
to allege no reason why it should ex
ist; aoesn t attempt to give any,
Even its negative propositions are
wholly uncertain, changing from day
to day. As to Mr. Hermann, again
The Oregoman has often criticised
him, because he has not been in all
thing as direct and "strenuous" as it
has desired. Yet it knows that he
has been doing excellent work in con
gress, during the past session, and is
more efficient than any new and un
known man possibly could be. Be
sides, he is a republican and a sup-
porter-of.jepubliean policies, and on
republican policies the prosperity of
the country is established. It is ten
years since there was a democratic
house of representatives; and they
who remember the conditions that
prevailed in 1893-4 may well hope an
other ten years will ebipse befori
there is danger, even; of another.

Mre. Merrill refused to call anothei

officers claim, proceeded to drown hei
sorrows by drinking. Neighbors at

sigtis of life were shown, suspicions
were .aroused and Marshall Carney in

No question but the sympathy 'ol

In 1902 the Republican Congress

President Roosevelt, passed the na-
.ional irrigation act. Secretary
litchcock has now made public a
tcheme for putting that act in exten
