Cecil Rhodes wrote the key to his
Idea was the foundation of a society,
composed of rich men who should
leave their money in trust of a so
ciety Instead of the undeserving re
latives, the money to be used in con
trolling the world. He declares the
nations, the United States leading,
were combined to boycott the manu
facturers of England ;that the British
government was blind to the fact
it was losing its power; and that the
British should at once declare com
mercial war on America and boycott
American goods until that country
should "come to its senses."
Khodes declared a combine be
tween the United States and England
would preserve the peace of the
world for all eternity, and he sug
gested a federal parliament to meet
fire years In Washington and five
years in London. Rhodes saw clear
ly the coming expansion of America.
He declared President Harrison saw
dimly the inevitable overflow of the
United States fnto oth'er lands, and
he rather Impatiently criticized him
for not grasping the idea more broad
ly. He scored the British leaders
bitterly for failure to realize that
commercial leadership, was slipping
away fro .11 them.
Rhodes vision went into the fu
ture as far as human eye ever reach
ed, hut he never became a "big man"
until he was dead at 47 years.
Rhodes was not an appreciated nor
understood man while he breathed.
Death broke the shell around him and
alas, he proved the big soul he was!
THE DEMOCRATIC CAUSE.
The railroads and the steamship
lines, aided by those who profit from
a trade in cottton with China, brought
about the defeat of the Mitchell-Kahn
Chinese exclusion bill and gave to
the country in its stead legislation
extending the present laws, with a
few unimportant amendments.
The East Oregonian has printed in
Its news columns the Piatt substitute
measure as it passed the senate, so
all may have the opportunity of
reading and reflecting upon the meas
ure complete. It is quite evident
that even Senator Mitchell did not
except the radical legislation that he
fathered. In short, the senator, as
well as many others in the senate
who supported it, were "playing to
the galleries" in order that the labor
vote might not be driven away from
the republican party.
It would appear that the senate is
seldom serious in exacting legisla
tion favorable to the interests of the
under crust of society, but avoid its
wrath by delusion an- pretense, and
so successfully at times that they
have the admiration of most of those
It has been ever so, the knave
makes capital out of the fool.
The Dalles Times-Mountaineer
makes the following editorial com
ment regarding the democratic poli
tical cause in Oregon:
Here are two extracts from the
platforms adopted by the state con
ventions recently held in Portland:
Republican "And we further reco
mmend the election of United States
senator by popular vote."
Democratic "We are in favor of
1 the election of senator by direct vote
of the people."
Thosp txca dpplarntlnne hnvp thp
I same purport, and from reading them
one would be led to believe that both
parties were heartily in favor of the
people having a direct voice in the
selection of their representatives in
the upper house of congress. But the
action of one of the conventions lends
distrust to this declaration.
i A statute was nnsspd at thp last
legislature Intended to give the peo
ple an opportunity to express their
choice for United States senator. It
provides thai any state convention
may make a nomination for this of
fice and that such nominee shall be
entitled to be placed on the official
The republican state convention,
although it "recommended the elec
tion of United States senators by
popular vote," did not make a nomin
ation and allow the people an oppor
tunity to express their choice. So
far as any action of the convention
is concerned the people have no inti
mation whatever whom a republican:
legislature will choose lor this office !
whether there will be an election at
all, or whether there will be a hold
up. On the other hand the democrat
ic convention after declaring for
direct vote for United States senator,
made a nomination. By this action
the people are informed that if the
democrats gam control of the lecisla
ture, a United States senator will be
elected in the person of Col. C. E. S.
Wood, one of the ablest men in the
state. This convention sought to
deal honestly and openly with the
people, to allow them to express a
choice for senator, and to give them
assurance that there will be no traf
fic or trade over the senatorial elec
tion. This cannot be said of the re
publican convention. The voter sup
porting a nominee of that party for
the legislature has no assurance who
such legislator will support for Unit
ed States senator, or that he will
support anybody. Let the voters re
flect upon these comparisons.
From every part of the state comes
encouraging reports. Delegates wno
assembled in Portland last week
brought word from the sections they
represented that democracy was on
the ascendency, that the party of the
people was gaining ground.
Salem Journal: The democratic
state convention did its duty honest
lv and deserves commendation for
nominating a candidate for the senate
to go before the people, as the law of
this state provides shall be done.
When it is considered that the same
faction that passed the law was In
control of the republican state con
vention, it was a cowardly evasion
not to nominate a candidate.
The truth is, there are four or five
of that faction expecting to be made
senator by the next legislature, and
some of them would hardly dare to
submit themselves to a popular vote.
The people have clearly noticed
that the scenes of the last legislature
are not to be repeated, when both
factions bought votes with appro
priations, and another senatorship is
to be bought with public money.
C. E. S. Wood, the democratic nom
inee, is an able man. but so radical a
freetrader and anti-imperialist that
he does not even stand on the very
reasonable democratic platform.
It may suit the purposes of the
anti-Simon faction, or even of Mr. Si
mon, to have no candidate for United
States senator nominated in the re
publican state convention, but it
would have suited the people of Ore
gon to have had that question decid
ed by themselves, and taken out of
the legislature entirely
MUST ELECT A DEMOCRAT.
THE OLEO BILL.
The senate has passed the oleo bill
xrhlch in brief provides that the taxi
of ten cents per pound shall be placed
on all butter substitutes when color
ed in imitation of butter and one
fourth of a cent on the uncolored ar
ticle. The effect of this measure will
be to make manufacturers of the var
ious substitutes stop coloring them in
imitation of the dairy product and
Ex-Secretary of State Kincaid in
his paper, the Journal, says:
"The difference between the two
democrats that are candidates on the
so-called republican and so-called
democrat ticket neither of which
names cover enough of the principles
claimed and advocated by them re
spectively a few years ago to be re
cognized by the ghosts of Buchanan
and Lincoln, or Tilden and Grant
is that Furnish, who was a Cleveland
democrat, bolted the nomination of
Bryan and voted for McKinley. While
Chamberlain voted for Bryan, the Ab
raham Lincoln of the present day,
who is a far better representative of
the principles on which Lincoln and
Grant were elected than Cleveland,
under whom Furnish held office and
for whose principles he bolted Bryan,
or McKinley, for whom he voted.
So the only choice the people of Ore
gon now have since the republicans
have gone over to the Cleveland de
mocracy body and breeches, on the
money question, on the tariff and are
the tools of the monopolies that Bry
an fought, and have nominated a
Cleveland democrat for governor to
show their loyalty to "the party"
the Cleveland party" that in four
years emptied the treasury of the
United States and brought the people
to starvation and the government to
the verge of bankruptcy and ruin, is
to elect a Cleveland democrat, who is
called republican, for "office and re
venue only," or a real modern demo
crat, who represents the principles
on which the republican party was
founded and on which it administer
ed the government until 189G, far bet
ter than McKinley or Cleveland whose
follower Furnish is. It is bound to be
a democrat now. People who are
governed entirely by political and fi
nancial pirates will vote for the name
"republican," headed by a Cleveland
seeker after spoils and office. Peo
ple who think more of principles and
facts than of empty names and the
roar of lying demagogues, will not
care by what name a candidate is
called if he represents the principles
and policies they believe to be the
best for the country. If principles
and consistency are to control in the
coming election Chamberlain will be
