WHAT IS IT TO BE?
Is Oregon to be republican, or demo
cratic, when the vote of the day is
counted? That is tlw question! If Mr.
Withycombe is elected, along with his
colleagues, then will the state be safely
and wholesomely republican! If Mr.
Chamberlain i elected even alone, the
state will be. to all intents and pur
poses dcmocraticj and will be so rated
at home and abroad. There are grave
contlngeneie wrapt In this problem.
And there are none in the State of Ore
jjon to determine the trenchant issue
but KKrl'M.UWXS. It is up to thorn
,111.1 flimllv. The democrat of
the shite cannot do tin trick. There aiv
not enough of thetn. Oorgo Chamber
kin must lo nut back in the executive
chuir by the identical agency that put
him there in the first phiee. Don't for
get this. There will be no escape, for
the onus of the undoing of republican
Oregon will rest unquestionably upon
the republicans themselves: and should
.Mich a thing wine to pass, there are
no limitation to sum and scope of the
treachery. The Astorian is not stating
.these facts upon the hppothesis that
puch an untoward thing is liable to hap
pen, but it is said to make it republi
can colleagues and friend the more con
scious of the tremendous responsibility
with which they are charged on this
great and grave occasion and to fortify
them against the individual laches of a
foolish and good-natured impulse in be
.half of a man who has served his time
and hi end. Stand fast, republicans
and do the utmost of your duty by your
county and by your state! It is either
take "and make ALL: or give and loe
OREGON THE CYNOSUREI
There are millions of deeply interested
people watching Oregon this day! If
these millions, the majority is intense
ly and loyally republican! The organic
hosts of the nation expect this state to
go overwhelmingly republican in the
outcome of this day's contest. 1 No one
Jook for anything else. AND AS ITS
COUNTIES GO so will the state go!
You cannot trifle with a situation so
delicate as this and save it to your
selves. The work that is done in an
electoral sense today, must be done with
a fixed and legible dictum of a pre-de-terminated
republican victory of the
amplest sort on record. Nothing short
of this will answer the expectations of
the millions awaiting the decision.
Washington and the great officers and
there, the influence radiating from
there are absorbed in the issues wrought
here today; and the larger the majority
of the republicans the closer will the
state be drawn into the flood of nation
al and popular endorsement, for this is
a republican administration and govern
ment and thereby the most prosperous
on earth and as Oregon shall acquit her
self this day in that behalf so will the
measure of her reward be enhanced and
made certain. ,
BEWARE THE LAST LIE!
This is the, day, the hour, and the in
spiration of the latest and last cam
paign lie. Let every man beware of it,
and turn it down in silence and con
tempt. It is the resort of desperate
minorities always and should be easily
recognizable by the very juncture at
which it eomes to the front. Luckily
the republicans of Clatsop have nothing
to fear along this line, and whatever
may be sprung for their particular bene
fit, will be wholly transparent and en
tirely democratic. It is not so much in
ovgue as it once was, as a hiddpn weap
on of discomfiture, but there are inex
pert politicians who, doing a novitiate
turn in the canvass, may resort to it,
thinking it .serviceable and the quickest
way to make it ineffective is to laugh it
down and turn it under with a fillip of

Here is a minister who appreciate
the editor. At a recent editorial con
vention he offered the following toat:
''To -save an editor from starvation take
his paer and pay for it promptly j
to save him from bankruptcy, adver
tise in his paper liberally! to save him
from despair, send him every item of
new of which you can get hold. To
save him from profanity write your
eorresjHmdenca plainly on one side of
the sheet and send it in a early a
possible. To save him from mistakes,
bury him. Dead people are the only
one who never make mistakes."
If you know of an item or a piece
of news, tell us aliout it. That's what
we want. But a newspaper man some
time experiences more difficulty in
gatheringews than one would imag
ine. This was the eav when a report
er in a neighboring town who, a few
days ago, was sent to write up a fire
in a residence. Going to the door he
inquired for the lady of the house. The
maid said she wa out. "Are any of the
family at home!" inquired the scrilie.
"No they are all out," was the reply.
"Well, wasn't there a fire here last ev
ening!'' "Yes" said the hired girl,
"but that's out too."

and the next handful of type came off
of a galley describing a recent fire. It
read like this : "The pnll!earers lower

consigned to the llames there were few
if any regrets, for the old wreck had
been an eyesore to the town for years.

that was fully covered by insurance."

The people are in favor of local option,
but uot prohibition. When, therefore,
the "local option law" was submitted
to the elector for their approval at the
general election held in 1904 it received
a majority of the vote cast thereon, a
it was believed to be a represented.
Had the voters understood that the pro
vision ot the law made it in many re
spects a prohibition measure containing
unfair provisions, and not simply local
option, it would have beeu defeated.
It was not fully undcrstod by the
people, at the time they voted upon thU
law, that it provided that the prohi
bitionists might call an election every
year, while those in lavor 01 license
could only call au election every two
years; or that the prohibitionists were
permitted to group several "dry" pre
cincts together with one "wet" no a to
permit the majority in the dry precincts
to overcome the majority in the wet
precincts, and thus force a precinct to
become dry even though a majority re
siding in such precinct did not wish it.
While it-was understood that when an
lection was called for the whole county,
such county would be dry if it went for
prohibition, the people did not under
stand that if such county election went
against prohibition it did not allow the
county to be wet, but mud dry such
precinct in the county as voted dry.
The people did not know that the law
provided that when a precinct went dry
it denied the right of a person living
in that precinct to have liquor in his
own house for the use of his family and
The proposed amendment to the local
option law corrects these objectionable
features, while not destroying or in any
manner interfering with the proper pur
poses of the law.
The amendment provides that a local
option election shall only be called every
two years; prevents grouping and gerry
mandering of districts, and allows each
precinct to determine what shall be the
rule in such precinct. So that if a ma
jority of a precinct vote dry it shall
be dry; if wet it shall be wet.
Should the amendment be adopted, it
will make the present law a purely pre
cinct local option law. as it was origin
ally represented to be, and which the
people thought it was at the time it was

There are many people who have used
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar

who are unknown because they have
hesitated about giving a testimonial of
their experience for publication. These
people, however, are none the less friends
of this remedy. They have done much
toward making it a household word by
their personal recommendations to
friends and neighbors. It is a good medi

known for its cures of diarrhoea and all

puts It In the power of a few not only
to thrust an exepnse upon the taxpayer
of the county, but such right could be

The amendment further provide that

ties by Ixurn tide brewer, and distilleries
and winerie or wholesale house, is not
to be construed a a violation of the law.
The purpose of local optlou l to control
the aloon and the sule of liquor In
retail quantities. Under the preent
law, should the preeimt In whirh a
brewery is located vote dry. it would
prevent the bicwry from manufacturing
any beer in it present location, and
force it to establish it plant In some
precinct that voted wet, practically con
fiscating the plant located In the dry
precinct; and though a wholesaler had
at great expense established hi place of
business in a certain location, if the
precinct in which hi buslne wa lo
cated should go dry, he would be pre.
vented front doing husincsA at thit loca
tion, even though he did not sell to any
one living within such dry precinct.
The amendment proposed take this
unjust and objectionable feature out of
the law. The amendment further pro
vide that when a precinct goe dry it
shall not go Into effect until 00 day.
This gives a saloon man who wa legal
ly doing business in the preclnrt before
it went dry time within which to di-pose
of his fixtures and dock. No reasonable
man can object to this provision.
The present local option law was
drawn by those who are in favor of pro
hihition, and not local option; and it
enactment was secured upon the repre
sentation that it was a local option
measure. Since the true effects of the
provisions of such act have now been
discovered and mado known, the law
should be amended so that it really will
be what it was originally thought and
represented to he, simply a local option
law; and the adoption of the amendment
now proposed will make it a local op-

anxious to control the saloon. They do
not want to control It. They wnt It
wiped out of existence altogether. They
make no distinction between a great
brewery or winery aud a saloon- Every
thing connected with the brewing or li
quor busines look alike to the prohibi
tionist, and he would exterminate thm,
root and branch.
Of course the American people do not
agree with the.- impracticable Idea.
They have voted frequently for the li

matter how small a majority he may be
