Ignored in Respect to Election of United States
Senator in 1901. Will Big Counties
Monopolize Candidates?
Orecon's next senator in congress will
be chosen by a new method if the pur
pose of the direct primary law shall be
carried out, for by that law each party,
republican and democratic, will name a
candidate for that office at the primaries
the intent being to force the legist' ure
by public opinion into electing the can- !
didate of the party which is dominant
in the lawmaking body.
This plan was tried in the legislatare I
which met January, 1903, but failed. T !
T. (Jeer secured the republican nomina- j
tion at the polls in June, ItHrJ, andO. K j
S. Wood the democratic. However, C. I

ing the highest number and thereuiHin
the house shall proceed to the election
of a senator as lequired by the act of
congress and the constitution of the
ignored Law in 1903
But when the legislature met in 1903
the two houses ignored that law, inas
much as it had no binding legal force
and proceeded "to the election of a sen
ator as required by the act of congress
and the constitution of the state" - the
usual method.
The direct primary law has no more
V. Fulton was elected by the legislature
By the new method nominees for sen
ator would he chosen at the republican
and the democratic primaries one by
each party for election by the legisla
ture in January, 1907, just as nominees
would be chosen for the various state
offices for election by the people in June
Prinurirs in April.
The state pri iaries will be held next
April "'for the purpose," says the law,
'"of choosing candidates by the political
parties, subject to the provision of this '
law, for senator in congress and all other
elective state, district, coiritv, precinct, ,
city, ward and all other officers and del
egates to any constitutional convention
or conventions that may hereafter be 1
called, ho are to be chosen at the en
suing election wholly by electors within
this state or any subdivision of thU
state, and also for choosing and electing
the county central committeemen by
the several parties subject to the pro
visions of this law."
The aim of the law is to take the
choosing of United Slates senators away
from legislatures and give it to the peo
ple. But since popular election of Unit
ed States senators cannot be, effected
witbou' an amendment of the national
constitution to that effect, the direct
primary law offers a plan for nomina
tion of party candidates for senator by
the people, intending that members of
the legislature in electing a senator shall
ratify tbe will of the people, as express
ed at the primaries.
A taw with this purpose in view was
enacted by tbe legislature in 1901, pro
viding that "the names of all candidates
for the office of senator in congress"
should be placed on the ballot in state
elections ; that each house of tbe legis
lature should canvass the votes 1 'and
binding force on the legislature in the
election of senator than had the law of
1901, and the members may vote as they
please, except that they aie likely to
feel obliged by promises to their consti
tuents to vote for the primary nominees
for senator. It is common gossip in po
liti -a; circles that candidates for legisla
tive nominations, in order to win voles
in next April's primaries will promise to
vote for the "people's nominees" for
If several republicans should run for
the republican nomination and only one
democrat it is quite possible that the
one democrat would receive more popu
lar votes than tbe republican whoshouM
win the republican nomination Would
the democrat theu be the "people's nom
inee?" Only one of them because the
purpose of tbe direct primary law is the
selection of a nominee I y each party.
That Multnomah republicans should
name the next senator is the ruling sen
timent in this county. A Multnomah
man now holds the office John H.
Mm hell. Since the men whom this
county will put forward mill have to
make a campaign before the people,
1 doubt has been expressed that the men
; of the class desired will enter the race.
, Should only one Multnomah aspirant
come forward the chances of his nomi
nation would be favorable because ol
tbe large vote be would receive in this
county and the probably scattered vote
of bis rivals in otner counties. This
power of big counties in controlling
nominations for all state offices has
made aspirants from small counties and
his caused politicians in big counties
, like Multnomah and Marion to tear that
the inevitable effect of tbe direct pri-
: mary law will be to give big counties
too many nominations and to endanger
the success of the ticket throughout the

Senator Did Not Take the Stand. Defen
dant's Counsel Asks for Acquittal. No
Proof of Accepting Money.
Portland, June With the testimony of S. B. Mar
tin who gave evidence concerning the Senator's readiness
and willingness at all times to do work for his constituents
without compensation, the defense in the trial of Mitchell
closed this morning. Instructions were then presented by
the defense asking the court to instruct for acquittil on
the principal grouud that the allegation of money received
by the Senator has not been proved, as check only was re
ceived. District Attorney Heney began the argument for
the prosecution this afternoon. A significant development
of the day is the failure of the defense to place Senator
Mitchell on the stand. The defense claimed a close situi
lmity to the case of Senator Burton, of Kansas, for tsking
bribes, and maintained that while the indictment charged
the direct receipt of money from Kribs by Mitchell, the
most that could be shown was the direct receipt of money
from the bank. The checks were purchased by the bank
and the money later indirectly received by Mitchell was
not Hubs' money, but that of the bank. The Supreme
i ourt was quoted to sustain this point.

prosecute this unfortunate defendant.
My duty will soon cease; yours, on the
other hand, will not so soon be finished.
It remains for you to say whether tbe
laws of the land shall be enforced with
out fear or favor. I feel sure you have
taken your oath to render a verdict ac
cording to the evidence, with tbe full
intention of doing it, snd will not
permit yourself to be swayed by the
dramatic arta to which some may resort,
or the tears of full-grown men, whether
they came from the heart or are arti
ficial. If after you render your verdict
you search your own conscience and
have its approval, you may well care
nothing what anyone may say.
"Were it not for the prominence of
the defendant, it would probably be
unnecessary for the prosecution to go
urther. Could you divorce the Senator,
Joiin 1 1 . Mitchell, from the man, I
think you would have no difficulty in
arriving at a speedy decision.
