TILLMAN ilN THE SENATE.
The Tillman-McLaurin incident in
the United States senate is still not
without interest. It does appear
from developments that Tillman's
crime did. not consist of his abuse of
Senator McLaurin or the blow he"
struck him, but of the greater offense
of mercilessly flayiug the scoundrel
ism of the senate which is masquerad
ing in the robes of righteousness,
while capitalizing their high offices
and official influence. Senator Till
man's attitude toward this force in
the senate has built up a terrible
enmity to him and it embraced the
opportunity of the senate occurrence
to cripple him..
Mr. Tillman is a "dangerous man"
to this element and once he can be
throttled it will be done. Tillman is
a rough and ready fighter, crude and
rough to some extent, but he is hon
est and fearless, and free from the fi
nancial slime which covers those j
against whom he raises his voice and!
to whom he applies the lashings of
The fiery South Carolinian, in a
thoughtless moment, permitted his
temper to get the better of his judg
ment and in a moment when he was
overcome by fury he committed a
breach of senatorial decorum which
his enemies were quick to seize upon,
but Tillman has shaken them off and
is himself once more, sharp, watch
ful and ready for battle for his peo
ple which he honestly and courage
ously represents. He wounded the
"dignity of the senate" and that was
a crime for which he was not to be
forgiven, but Tillman did escape, for
there was no rule under which he
could be convicted, and he is now in
full possession of his senatorial
Had he traded his voe for senator
ial patronage, had he barked for the
combines, had he fought for the tar
iff thieves and otherwise "sold" him
self, as other milder senators have.
Jie would not have been threatened
with expulsion and disgraced by
President Roosevelt. All of his ene
mies would have looked the other
way and no notice would have been
taken 'of his so-called ruffianism, and
thus he would have escaped censure.
Senator Tillman stands almost
alone in the senate, free from the
smirch of money, battling against
great odds, but up and at 'em at all
times and never asleep at his post.
Upon the prongs of lifs thorny and
briery spoodh there wriggle and
squirm all the scoundrellsm in the
senate, and with his "pitchfork" he
turns them over to a brown turn!
For our part we are glad Tillman
Is there. He is a watchman at the
tower gate and there is safety In the
knowledge that he is no kid gloved
softhanded fellow, but a vigorous and
spirited man, conscientious in the ex
ecution and discharge of his duty.
The people arc watching Mm, nnd
they are, the great hotly of them, In
sympathy with him. May his shadow j
never grow less!
FOR GOVERNOR OF OREGON. '
The republicans of Umatilla coun
ty, at least that portion of thorn who
voted at the primary election, have
decided whom they desire for gover
nor, and now it remains for the re
publicans of other counties to do the
same, and, in the end, it is hoped
that the republicans of eastern Ore
gon will be nble to agree on the can
didate for the nomination of govern
or, choosing, of course, an eastern
In the eVent that the delegation
from eastern Oregon to the state con
vention can consentrate their forces
for any one candidate, they can bring
about his nomination, and a portion
of the work of having an eastern
Oregon man in the governor's chair
to succeed Governor Geer will have
been accomplished. Eastern Oregon
is entitled to the office and eastern
Oregon republicans will be neglect
ing their duty if they fail to embrace
the opportunity before them.
Jn former years the republicans of
eastern Oregon have been modest in
presenting their political claims, with
the result that eastern Oregon has
suffered the burden of taxation with
out proper representation in the
state government at Salem. This
should not longer continue. Eastern
Oregon should have a Voice in state
affairs in proportion to its importance
as a part and a big part of the
THE FUTUhc OF MAN.
Despite the known futility of all j
speculations or guesses at the future
of the human race, men are neve
weary of them. Prom the earllesc
age of which we have any record
down to our time there have been
prophets of woe or of bliss concern-'
ing the coming time, and for every
prophet there lias been an attentive
and Interested audience.
. In the olden times the prophets
claimed divine inspiration. Later on
they professed to forecast the future
through philosophical reasoning. In
our time the prophets speak in the
name of science, and even when they
are not scientists they use the forms
of scientific argument and base their
predictions upon truths which have
been scientifically demonstrated.
Of all the forecasters of the day H.
G. Wells holds the foremost placeby
reason of the fact that he has written
more entertainingly and more .scien
tifically than any cf Ms competitors.
Moreover he advances the most inter
esting theory. In a recent lecture in
London on "The Discovery of the
Future," he argued that W ihin cer
tain qualifications and limitations a
working knowledge of tho for? in
operation upon society we can esti
mate with an approach of &':s:urn y
their mutual action nnl re.-.' n ii.in
each other, and we have also a good
understanding of the nuiuan mater
ials upon which those, for.-ts orfmte,
therefore, if mea of first class i-.l ility
should undertake to reason nt.t ti:1
future of an ypartlcular race they
would probabl approximate the
Mr. "Wells went on, however, to
point out that there was another fac
tor in the problem, a factor which re
presents a well known quantity,
which cannot be calculated and which
may change the whole course of
events. It is in dealing with this
factor that he is most interesting.
He suggests that the human race is
not the final and highest form of be
ing that Is to live on the earth. Ex-
actly as man developed from the low
er animals so may be a higher animal
evolve from man. This new develop
ment, he says, may come at any time,
and we may even now note around us
evidences of a deliberate improve
ment in the blood and brain of man.
In truth, says Mr. Wells, It Is quite
possible to believe that all the past
history of man is but a beginning of
something that is yet to come; all
that the mind has accomplished is
but a dream before the awakeniug'
we are creatures of the twlllt?bt, and
the man of the full splendor of the
day is yet to bo evolved out of tho
sufferings of the race that now exists.
Mr. Wells Is not a dogmatist. In
the .lecture in which he made this
suggestion of the coming of a new
race he told his audience that every
man has a right to be his own prophet
so those who do not like to believe
that man will eventually be succeed
ed by a higher race who will, treat
him as we treat monkeys .may believe
something else. The field of the, fu
ture Is wide. .There is room tor all
the prophets. San Francisco Call.
STATE PRINTING OFFICE.
According to figures printed Jn ,thls
paper the total appropriations for
jstate printing and binding for four
years ending with 1902 wore $136,-
4G5.31, not Including deficits that may
appear at the end of this period.
Besides this there were other print
ing bUls and estimated expenses for
water, fuel, light and contingent ex
penses amounting to $10,744.82. This
would make an annual expense of
538,400 for this purpose.
The expense of state printing nn.i
binding has constantly Increased aiid
the above does not Include expenses
for printing blank books done In some
of the departments of tho state gov
ernment. The" office or state printer Is created
by the constitution and the printer Is
elected at the coming June election
for the next four years. His compen
sation is fixed by the legislature and
it is provided that it shall not be
raised or lowered during the period
for which he is elected.
This clause has always been used
to prevent any change in the pay of
this officer nnd the pay is computed
under the old law that was passed
when hand presses wero used and
printing was counted by the token.
It is the mcsi lucrative oflk In
the slate. State printers have sub
let the state printing for 10 per cent
of the proceeds and got rich out of
At present the state printing office
Is owned by Frank Baker, tho ex
state printer. It is kept rent free in
the state house. Whoever is elected
state printer will have to rent the
plant of Mr. Baker and pay him
about 25 per cent of the proceeds
for the use of same.
The secretary of state is custodian
of the state house nnd supervises the
printing and binding nnd buying of
paper. The printing office was never
located in the state house until Mr.
Baker was elected state printer.
Under a business administration of
the state printing and binding the
work really required by the state
could, in the opinion of competent
judges, be done for $15,000 to $20,000
Tons of printing are sold for old
junk and the office is conducted more
from the- standpoint of swelling the
volume of business to the largest
possible amount than from the stand
point of printing actually needed.
-An active state printer can swell
the business ten thousai.a dollars at
each session of the legislature, be
cause the office is one of fefs instead
of fixed salary.
The printing office Is a menace to
the state house in other ways than
financially. The presses shake the
walls and the large stores of paper
and waste saturated with oil and ink
are a source of fire danger.
The' state printer should be put on
a fiat salary and the printing office
removed from the state house. At
$2,500 a year a competent man could
be secured by the people no candi
date would refuse the office.
Then there would be several large
printing establishments in the city
of Salem employing labor and paying
rent and taxes. The office would not
be used to corrupt state politics and
influence the legislature.
At present printers from all over
the state and with a little political
pull are employed during the legis
lature and become part of the lobby
that extends its pernicious influence
to all departments of state.
The state printer and the ex-state
printer and the prospective state
printers are always at Salem when
the legislature is in session and op

as the vital powers begin to wane a slight bruise or cut, wart or mole, sore or
pimple may develop into Cancer. From middle life to old age is the tune when
the slumbering poison is most npt to break out, a sore or ulcer often degenerating
into Cancer, and Tumors 'become more progressive and ulcerate through the skin,
the sharp, shooting pains causing the most intense suffering.
The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the usual
remedies foil, and the sore shows no sign of healing. The imparities that have
been accumulating in the system, perhaps for generations, cannot be eliminated nor
the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plasters. The proper treatment
is to purify and build up the blood, Temove the cause, when the sore or nicer beau.
