Then a dozen long benches were
brought forward and placed beside (he

" dozens were standing the closest at

' Speaking simply and earnestly the
governor quickly established a feeling

responsiveness of the audience.

' prior to that time the old guard, which
"is now endeavoring to get control of

Chamberlain Sad no Scandals.
"Since George Chamberlain went
Into the governor's office you have
never heard of scandal In the state
land office," said the governor. "You
never hear of thousands of, dollars be
ing taken away from the school chil
dren of the state. The first thing that
Chamberlain did was to take steps for
the protection of the school lands.
"Oregon has about one sixth of the
standing timber In the United States,
and the Booths and the Weyerhaeusers.
and others of their kind, have about
one half of it They would have had It
all If steps had not been taken In time
to prevent them from gobbling it up.
, "Then they undertook to gobble .up
the water power In the state. Cham
berlain, when governor, promoted a
bill to keep the water power forever
In tbe hands of the people. It was
introduced in the legislature, and the
Portland Railway, Light & Power
company defeated it.
Water Bights Preserved. j
"Governor Chamberlain had the bill
introduced a second .time, then he sent
me to warn them to keep their hands
off. He told me to tell them if they
didn't he would initiate a bin so rn .

they would wish they had kept their

state belongs to you people. Pittock

cannot take the water power of the
state. That belongs to you. Anyone
who wants to develop it and use it
may, but at the end of 40 years it re
turns to your hands.
"That is why the old guard Is mak
ing such an effort to get control of
state affairs again; that is why they
are endeavoring to get back to the old
convention system of making nom
tlons for office. They want the
sembly again, because if tliey can nom'

who elects them.
Assembly Plan Favored.
"W. D. Fenton of th Southern Pa
cific Railroad company wants to take
popular government power away from
you because the railroad commission
has regulated railroad rates. The cas
ualty Insurance companies are seeking
the same, 'and because they don't like
the workmen's compensation law.
"When the assembly measure draft
