EXTRA SESSION TALK.
- The extra session project died an early
death, and the mourning throughout the
state will be confined to a few politicians
whose efforts to eecnre certain concts
eions which would give them greater
power, are frustrated. The people at
large are willing to let well enough
alone and eve om passion ior the hard
working political ringsters, who are bo
sorely disappointed, will not move them
to sanction the convening of the legisla
ture. The belief is becoming general
that Joe Simon ' and his friends had
some job they wished to get through the
legislature, and the following from the
East Oregonian gives what is probably
the inwardness of the matter:
"A gentleman who has been mingling
with the political managers in Portland
lias some vigorous thing3 to say on the
subject of an extra session of the legisla
ture, the calling of which is being advo
cated by the Portland Oregonian and
some of the state papers. The Orego
nian has openly made request of Gov
ernor Lord that he call the session, and
since it has learned that the governor
lias made up his mind not to call the
session, the paper has indulged in some
sharp rebukes to his excellencv, the
chief executive of the state of Oregon
It appears to be the element in Portland
lieaded by Joe Simon that is making the
request Jor a special session. And it is
understood that tho chief thing desired
is the passage of the Portland charter
bill, which Mr. Simon brought into the
legislature last Eession and the legisla
tors turned down. This charter was an
absolute necessity, so well informed men
say, to Joe Simon s maintaining his
supremacy in Portland and Oregon, and
it is yet a necessity. The Humo and
Hall, factions in Portland have made
such progress that Mr. Simon must do
something to check them. The charter
bill will do this. Ordinarily, it would
be impertinence for the people in other
cities to take a hand in what appears to
be a local fight. But, inasmuch as
Portland is Oregon's metropolis, and to
Bucb a large extent dominates the poli
tics of the state and now asks the people
to pay for an extra- session to handle its
affairs, the people at large are jus.ified
in taking more than a passing interest
in the contest."
THE REED MOVEMENT.
The Heed movement in New England,
which has begun to take practical shape,
was expected as a matter of course. The
speaker, says the Globe-Democrat, is the
biggest man whom New England has
had since Blaine's days of promises, and
.Blaine was the greatest man in his lo
caiuy Eince weDster. iiiaine was a
. much greater politician than Webster,
though far below him in some other par
ticulars, for Webster never obtained the
presidential nomination of his united
party. Webster bad even greater ill
"fortune in this respect than John Sher
man has ever suffered. The delegates
whom he supposed would be his were
znore elusive, when the voting time
came, than those "pledged" to Sher
man. Blaine, however, was not fooled
in this way. Most of the delegates who
promised to support him always stuck.
The probability is that Reed will be
Presidential booms are usually
launched about this time. The Repub
lican National convention is only five
months away, and the selection of dele
gates will soon begin to be a matter of
immediate concern. "Demonstrations"
in the interest of the different aspirants
are now in order. Reed, McKinley,
Harrison and Allison "conclaves," "con
spiracies" and "rallies" may be looked
ior frequently now until the convention
meets. Everybody who has any prefer
ence at all in the matter of the selection
of the candidate will soon begin to show
it. The liberty of choice is not often
-wider than it is in . the present case.
This liberty relates to locality as well as
to the general attributes of the aspir
ants. The far East, the far West and
the central West are represented by the
candidates, while the divergencies in
temperament and characteristics among
them are equally conspicuous.
Speaker Reed is in a peculiarly trying
position for a presidential aspirant. To
a man of his positive character and im
mense influence the speakership carries
with it the leadership of his party in the
Louse. For every partisan measure
which is reported by any of the commit
tees he will be held responsible. The
tariff bill now before the senate is called
the Dingley bill, but the people will
consider it a Reed measure, and mete
out praise or blame to him according as
they divide on that measure's merits.
He will be prominently in the fore
ground until lone after the convention
has done its work, while his chief rivals
McKinley and Harrison, in "private Eta
lion, can keep in the shadow. Even Al
lison is far less conspicuously visible, for
he is not a leader, and his branch is not
likely to be the scene this year of any
contest which will bring him into espe
cial prominence. The speaker stands a
chance to either make or 'mar his po
litical fortunes in the next five months
Thus far, however, in the session he has
undoubtedly strengthened his hold on
Pendleton's I'olut of TIew.
A good-natured rivalry has sprung up
between Pendleton and The Dalles re
garding their commercial advantages
and growth. The following article from
the Pendleton Tribune gives that paper's
views upon this question and its loyalty
to Pendleton is commended. However
the statement made by The Chronicle
that $600,000 was paid into The Dalles
for wool during the past season is ap
proximately correct, and for the number
of pounds 6,000,000 is a much more cor
rect estimate than the 5,000,000 allowed
by the Tribune. The price paid per pound
here ranged in some instances over 12
cents, while large quantities sold for 11
In Pendleton the prices ranged much
lower. We envy Pendleton her woolen
mill and scouring mill, but The Dalles
will not concede that Pendleton sur
passes her as being the wool emporium
of the West. All the more reason why
woolen manufacturies should be estab
lished here, where the natural product
is at our door and transportation rates
by reason of an open river, so cheap,
Here are the Tribune's remarks :
In another column will be found an
interesting article from The Dalles
Chboxicle under the caption, "Time to
Advance," wherein the opinions ex
pressed, by commercial travelers con-
cerning the leading towns in Oregon are
referred to, supplemented by a deserved
tribute to fendleton, which is acknowi
edged by The Dalles paper to be a 'lusty
Tub Chhoniclb says that for wool
alone $600,000 was disbursed bv The
Dalles banks last summer.
"The Tribune is willing to admit that
The Dalles leads as the wool market of
Eastern Oregon, but is inclined to be
lieve that the figures quoted above are
Conservative- estimates place the
amount of wool handled at The Dalles
at about 5,000,000 pounds. This is in
excess of the number of pounds shipped
from Pendleton last year by about one
It should be borne in mind, however,
that while The Dalles for years past has
led as the great wool center, the nam
ber of pounds handled at this point pre
vious to the establishment of the scour
ing mill, leBS than two years ago, never
exceeded a million and aquatter.
A lusty rivalY" it would seem so,
when it is known that not until last year
nas it become generally known to the
people of Eastern Oregon, that the rife
competition existing between local buv
ers combined with the other advantages
she possesses, Pendleton easily leads as
the most advantageous shipping point
ior tne wool men of the inland Empire
It is now confidently expected that
during the present vear Pendleton will
handle over 6,000,000 pounds of wool,
nor will she then have arrived at the
zenith of ber possibilities as the great
entrepot of the wool product of .Eastern

of the enviable reputation they enjoy as

who never fail to contribute toward any
scneme calculated to benefit the town,
