Chicago, Aug. 11. Adolpb Frazer,
the central figure in the organization of
the peoples party, has returned from
Alabama where he took an active part
in the lato contest. He says the hopes
of destroying either old party are wan
ning. To an Inter-Ocean Interviewer he
said : The result of the election in 'Ala
bama is far from encouraging to the
people's party, and it gives a particular
ly sharp setback to Gov. Buchanan of
Tennessee. The governor . had- with
drawn from the contest for , the demo;
cratic nomination, leaving the field clear
for Peter B. Turney, but it was under
stood that he would make an independ
ent race, with the endorsement -of the
people's party, in which, event the state
could scarcely be kept in the democratic
column. The -overwhelming defeat of
Mr. Kolb in Alabama, however, may
give Gov. Buchanan -pause. -He will
think twice before venturing upon a race
which' may end in crushing disaster.
And if the Alabama failure of the peo
ples ' party shall serve to damp the en--thnglaam
af-Oov-r-B-iinhanan in JToneaaee
will it not equally andin a similar way
affect the dissentient democrats in the
other southern states? Will it not tend
to' - check defections and encourage
wavering members of the new party to
return and renew allegiance to. the old
organization? The Alabama election
was certainly not a boom for Weaver.
The Nigger In the Woodpile.
Ochoco Review. Thia begins to look
as if the hope of the people of the Inland
Empire for an open Columbia river was
to be blighted, or at least that several
years may be required before the gov
ernment can determine just what is to
be done before a contract will or can -' be
let. It is certainly an unfortunate af
fair to have work on this great and much
needed public improvement suspended
for even a day. And it is disheartening
to think that the men who framed and
passed the riyer and harbor bill did not
know enough to plainly state the facts
so that the secretary of war and bis
"able" corps of engineers could under
stand -the meaning of the appropriation,
and the provisions ior letting the work
by contract.- There have been so many
bitches about the improvements at the
cascades that people generally have, for
a long time been thinking that there was
a."nigger in the woodpile" somewhere,
and that some of the so-called friends of
opening the river are insincere, and are
not working for the removing of -the ob
structions to navigation of the river,
but to detain the work as much as pos
sible, and thereby advance the interests
of the railroad company which now al
most has a., monopoly of the carrying
trade down the Columbia.

A Cnrtls Prediction.
Astoria Herald. It ia reported that
Messrs. Gossand Schofleld are interested
in the Tanzy Point property and that it
is their intention to make that the term
inus of the Astoria and eastern railroad.
There is no doubt but the machine shops
will he located at that point and that
the bulk of the shipping will be done
from there as soon as the elevators are
built. Just what effect this will have
on Astoria cannot be determined, but if
there is ho hitch in the programme the
Herald ventures, the assertion, that in
less than two years, Tanzy Point will
have a larger population than Astoria.
- Oregonian. Lord Salisbury has the
courage to meet a hostile "majoi-ity in
Parliament, bat not to proceed with
legislation in iace of it. '-.-. His failure to
resign probably means that he wants to
force Gladstone to take the initiative by
an attack upon the government. He
may think such an attack will betray
the weakness of the heterogeneous and
disorganized force, with which Gladstone
must work, more fully than negative
opposition to a government measure.

Oaksdale Sun. The Spokane Chroni

it as an example of our prosperity. The
trouble with Spokane and many other

not exist in other sections, 'people are
not very anxious to flock to a place that

East Oregonian.- No regular prices

Indications are that when the market

be 65 to 60 cents.

GARFIELD PARK CASE.
A Legal Contention- Whicli Neeis a
IS POOL SELLING GAMBLING.
Constitutionality of the Illinois Statutes
" . Applicable.
A VITAL QUESTION LEFT OPEN.
That Horse Race Gambling Is a Common
Law Crime is Not a Matter of
Chicago, Aug. 11. The whole United
States is more or les9 directly interested
in the now celebrated Garfield Park'
case. The " decision of Judge Baker
amounts to this: "Pool-selling, boQk- -making,
or in other words betting on
horse races is gambling! The amuse
ment licenses of the city all provide that
no gambling shall be allowed in the
places licensed. Therefore, belting on
races being gambling, the mayor cannot
issne a license for an amusement where
admittedly gambling is to be carried oh.
Upon this ground the mandamus asked
tor by the, Garfield Park club is refused. '
The court declined to pass upon the
constitutionality of the statute of 1887.
The statute prohibits pool-selling and
book-making in general, but by a pro
vision tacked on at the end excepts from
the prohibition fair" and race-track in- ;
closures during the time of the meeting
of the association operating the same. -But
while the court did not declare the
law unconstitutional it held that the law '
did not repeal the criminal code wherein -is
forbidden gambling, which, according
to Judgo -Baker, embraces betting on.
horse races. In the absence of proof to
the contrary the court assumes the law .
of 1887 to be constitutional. -
This leaves open the really vital ques
tion : Did the legislature have a right to
license gamblers within .race, track en
closures under any .circumstances and
conditions? If horse-race gambling is a
common-law crime, as are. murder and. -theft,
the legislature did . not have that
power.- - That horse-race gambling is a '
common-law crime is not a matter of
grave doubt". But there was no issue
before the court which , involved the
question of whether pool-selling, is a .
crime. - Therefore there wos no express.. -decision
on this point. It is -now ' pro
posed to have a test case which will de
termine this question. .This legal on-
ten tion is perhaps well enough. - The
law needs adjudication. But it. is to
the discredit . of . the mayor that, with
law and ordinances on his side, he per- .
mits the Garfield park track to remain
in operation.' The policy of Mayor
Washburne is to let the place run and .
see if the law is strong enough to close
it. A courageous mayor would shut
up the place and let the gamblers hunt
for authority to reopen it. '-."
