THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET.
The democrats at Portland have
put together a strong ticket, built It
of good timber, representative of the
best that Is in the Oregon democracy.
From start to finish it will attract
votes. The ticket will appeal to the
people in all parts of Oregon. There
Is nothing sectional about it. It had
Its birth" in democratic spirit and
good feeling at Portland and It will
gain strength as it is made known.
The democracy of Oregon has an
opportunity to win at the polls.
There is a current flowing its way
that promises to be Irresistible. The
tide certainly sets toward it and
against the republican party. From
all parts of the state come evidence
of this. If it continues the democrat
ic state ticket will be elected.
There were thousands of stayat
home voters in Oregon in 1900, more
than 10,000 of them. If these can be
Influenced to vote the democratic
ticket, and the inference is they will,
If they vote at all, will insure vie
tory in June. The democracy Is
equipped to get this vote out on elec
tlon day, and. on this depends Its sue
cess or defeat.
The East Oregonlan would be glad
to see a real live, vigorous democracy
in power in Oregon, a democracy that
will stand for right methods, good
principles and better government.
God speed that day!
SMELLS AS SWEET.
Editor Rosewater, of the Omaha
Bee Is not so sweetsmelling as his
name would indicate. He has been
arrested for corrupt practice, in
Instead of being a pleasant perfume
in his sphere of activity, he haB bo
come a foul odor. In fact, he stinks
with one of the most disgusting
crimes known to public life. '
Swift and Bovere fumigation should
be (.pplled to him and his Ilk. He
ahould be thoroughly disinfected by
a propor and sufficient penalty, If
found guilty, before again mingling
with people of political health nnd
Full exposure of such cases is tho
only prevention for them. If the
peoplo are allowed to exhibit the
depth of their disgust for such dirty
crimes It will deter others from at
Publicity is the best salvo for cor
ruptlon In i.nd out of official life.

INITIATIVE AND REFERENDUM,
With the initiative and referendum
in all the stuto political platforms, it
reems probable that the seed sown in
Oregon by a few men a quarter of a
century ago, will at last bear fruit
How, such vital questions can be so
lc:ig overlooked by tho peoplo is a
woudor nnd a miracle. It is thcacmo
i.nd basis of popular government.
While not proposed as a euro for
all political evils, it Is the safe-guard
of tho citizen. It puts tiro law-making
power where It rightfully belongs
in the hands of the masses. If tho
people go wrong, the can soon
change their way, for thoy are the
author of all law. Oregon 1b Bjowly
but surely getting right.
AH questions of political nature
should ;be left .to .Unpeople .and the
responsibility of tho settlement of
them placed on their shoulders where
it belongs under a govenrment of the
people, by tho people and for tho peo
ple. In no other way but through the
initiative nnd referendum can tho
people really govern themselves and
when they once becomo accustomed
to this form thoy will not lay it aside
for any other, but further extend and
With every man appreciating self-
government by participating in gov
ernment the highest ideals of ootn
political and social life can be real
ized. The initiative anc. referendum will
tend to make the individual support
the government, of his own maning,
rather than .put him in such 'a frame
of mind, as'does present forms, to ex
iiect the government to -upport him.
Vote for the initiative and referee
dum it places more power in the,
hands of the people and less In the
hands of political bosses. For this"
reason alone It is ;worth voting for.
"SWEET ALICE, BEN: BOLT."
Thomas Dunn English, the author
of "Ben Bolt," who died a tew uays
ago at Newark, N. J., was born in
Philadelphia . in 1819. His parents
were descendants of Quakers who
came over with William Penn. The
Euclish family, settled in Monmouth
county, -u. J., where there Is still a
town that bears their name. Tiiom
as Dunn EngliBh attended a Friends'
school at Burlington, N. J., and his
father intended that he should be a
physician, but business reverses
obliged him to leave the academy t
the age of sixteen years. He wrote
for Philadelphia newspapers and was
cfteiward regularly employed upon
He decided, however, to study med
icine and was graduated from the
University of Pennsylvania in 1839
with the degree of JL D. His interest
in politics caused him to study law
and in 18 he was admitted to the
bar. He had also mastered a trade,
that of carpenter, in conformity of
When James K. Polk was nominat
ed for the presidency in 1844, the cen-
didate sent young English to New
York to get the support of the cus
tom house and postofflce authorities,
In which Dr. English succeeded. From
1842 to 18C2 he wrote many plays
which were produced in Philadelphia
theaters. He went to West Virginia
in 1853, where for five years he prac
ticed law and medicine. He moved
to New York in 1857, and a year later
went to Hackensack, N. J.
Dr. English served two terms in
the New Jersey Assembly during the
civil war, where he Introduced sev
eral measures for raising forces for
the Union army. He was classed as
a war democrat. He moved to New
ark, N. J in 1878, and he has since
made his home in that city.
He was elected to the United
States house of representatives in
1890. His appearance in the house
was the occasion for recalling to
many that he was the author of "Ben
Bolt," and made him the recipient of
many attentions from his colleagues
and the press.
Although an author, a democrat, a
physician, a lawyer, a statesman and
a journalist, his chief title to fame
was acquired by writing the following
Oh! don't you remember, cweet
Alice, Ben Bolt,
Sweet Alice, whose hair was so
Who wept with delight when you gave
her a smile,
And trembled with fear at your
In the old church yard in the valley,
In a-corner obscure and alone,
Thoy have fitted a sla bof the gran
ito so gray,
And sweet Alico lies under tho
Under tho hickory tree, Ben Bolt,
Which stood nt-tho foot of tho hill,
Together we've lain in the noonday
And listened to Annletton's mill.
The mill wheel has fallen to pieces,
Tho rafters have tumhled in
And a quiet that crawls round tho
wans as you gazo
Has followed tho olden din.
Do you mind the cabin of logs, Ben
At tho edge of tho pathless wood,
And the button-ball tree and its
Which nigh by the doorstop stood?
Tho cabin to rujn has gone, Bon Bolt,
The trees you would seek in v.iln?
And whoro onco tho lords of tho for
Grows grass and tho golden grain.
And don't you remembor the school,
With tho master so cruol and prim
And the shaded nook In tho running
Where the children wont tn nurim?
Grass grows on the master's grave,
Thoanrlne of thn hmnk t
And of all tho boys who were school-
Thero are only you and I.
There is changed in tho things I lov
ed, Ben Bolt;
They have changed fro mthe old to
tho new, , ,,
But I feel in the depths of my spirit
There never was change in you.
Twelve months twenty have passed,
Since -first we wore friends yet i
Thy presence a blessing, thy pres
enco a truth,
Ben Bolt of the salt sea gale.
(RELATIONS CAPITAL TO LABOR.
k At Tiroflnnr in far too many cases
the gulf between capital and labor is
regarded by the units comprising m--latter
half of the partnership as un
:bridgable a sort of yawning chasm
across which no connecting link
can be thrown. This attitude may
or may not be due to the capitalists
Themselves; but the fact remains that
the majority of units comprising la
bor regard the units representing
capital as natural enemies. In many
cases when a capitalist does make an
advance It is regarded by the recip
ients with suspicion if not absolute
distrust. It Is the same with new
methods of organization or manage
ment which do not appeal directly to
the man's understanding, as for in
stance the '"premium system;" they
are regarded with suspicion or a man
ner of taking undue advantage.
It has been shown that this atti
tude of opposition to capital or pro
gress is not deliberately assumed, but
is rather the result of crippling en
vironment. With a wider outlook on
the workers' part, this hostile atti
tude will gradually recede and ever
Increasing friendly relations be estab
lished. Capital and labor must be in
amicable agreement and upon the
strength and cordiality of this part
nership will our success in competi
tivo industrv denend. That there
should be foreign competition is only
rnnalntfinr with the dovnlonment of
other countries, but if the two
halves of our industrial partnership
are in unison and hearty co-operation
competition then becomes but an in
centive to fresh effort.
This co-operation Is not only possi
ble, but feasible, once tho workers
see the necessity of it; and that in
turn only competitive nations,
achieved through the aid of the work
ers present organizations, would be
of an extremely beneficial character
to the industry of today and iavalu
able to industry of the future. 'Percy

A prominent geographer has just
made an interesting calculation. He
says that if the oceans of the earth
were to be emptied of their water it
would take the rivers flowing into
them 40,000 years to bring them up
to the present level.
The nearly $60,000,000 which Wall

there, represents a good deal more
money than it took to finance the
revolutionary war, which made so
much prosperity possible.
