The sixteenth century the first in

KNOWS MR. WILLIAMSON.
" " Astoria Oregon, May 17, M0.
Ed. Astotn I have watched the dis
cussion of J. N. Williamson's stand on
th "fish-wheel" question with no lit
tle Interest, and have been amused at
the attempt of local, tmall bore pollll
clana to make capital out of the ac
tion of this broad-minded, broad-hearted
and big-brained statesman. It Is
like a rat attacking a lion, or a pigmy
standing way back and making ges
tures. at giant. democrat without
a platform o party except In name,
attacking republican,; v ,
Every ' war ; develops a new hero.
Every Important occasion brings out
some man equal to the emergency at
hand. ... Every election brrfls out some
man to whom the people look to and
upon whom they may rely Impllclty
in some special point in the campaign.
The Eastern Oregon country, known
as the'lnland emplre,"has long be.-n en
titled lo recognition. The millions of
acres of public lands they are coming
Into value and they have to be looked
a fie In Congress by some one famil
iar with them, and in looking about
them, the republicans . could find no
better man than Mr .Williamson. H Is
known for his honesty and Integrity
throughout the state, and It is never
difficult to tell where Mr. Williamson
stands on any point. He Is not a
politician but an honorable statesman.
Mr. Wise condemns Mr. Williamson
for standing up for his home Interests,
and then gives the excuse for attacking
Mr. Williamson that he (Wise) Is do
ing It all through love for his Interests
In his home. After Mr. Williamson
had received 'the nomination for con
gress and returned to h's home at
Prinevllle his neighbors, who had
known him for a life time, regardless
of party, gave Mm an old time recep
tion, such as farmers and ranchers
give, and many a tear rolled down their
rugged countenances out of gratitude
to the people of Oregon for honouring
their distinguished citizen. Surrounded
by these honest people of his home, Mr.
Williamson said: "If I go to congress
I will bring back a clean record; that Is
what these people desire' above all
things else, and I would rather please
these good folks at home by doing
right than win the applaudits of the
world by doing wrong. The memory of
your honest faces will ever cause me
to think before I act, and the man who
thinks should make but few mistakes."
In the state senate Mr. Williamson
was representing a local constituent:
In the national congress Mr. Williamson
will be representing the state of Ore
gon, The fishermen at the mouth of
the Columbia may rest assured upon
the fact if Mr. Williamson' is elected,
they will receive the same protection
at his hands as if '.hey Wf re sending
the most honorable man In Astoria to
fill the place. He has been a toiler all
his life. He knows the needs of the
working class and he is one man that
will never grow too large In influence
to forget the smallest Intereste of the
tucking men. ......
The writer has known Mr. William
son for several years, and if those fish
ermen, It any, who have been pre
judiced against him will meet him
and hear him speak when he comes to
Astoria, May 24, they will learn the
truth and place the proper estimate
on the attack made on him by politi
cal traducers. J. I. HUSTON.
