JOURNAL FOR CHAMBERLAIN.
The Salem Jorunal's issue for Sat
urday was a twelve-page paper. The
Journal is usually a four-page paper.
Saturday's issue contained consider
able political matter of a personal
and interesting character regarding
George E. Chamberlain's candidacy
The Journal is supporting Mr.
Chamberlain in this campaign, first,
because he is a fit man; second, be'
cause he has executive ability; third,
because the nomination sought him,
not he the nomination. But, more
than all, the Journal is supporting
Mr. Chamberlain for governor be
cause Mr. Chamberlain stands flat
footed on the proposition to place all
state officials on fiat salaries, and this
is a cherished hobby, and a good one
with .the Journal, that paper having
advocated flat salaries for state offi
cials for several years.
There is little doubt that if George
Chamberlain is elected governor,
state government carried on at Salem
will cost considerable less than it
has in the past and, besides, there
will be no diminution in the quality
of government. Good government al
ways costs less than had government
because "grafters" in office are more
expensive than, honest men.
The Jorunal is doing excellent work
in its advocacy for the state and its
people, as well as for the democratic
cause and George Chamberlain.
Strength to its arm, success to its
The Baker City Herald pretends to
be a newspaper, but instead of mak
ing a report from a news standpoint
of the democratic meeting in that
town Friday night of last week, it
ridiculed and made fun of the whole
proceeding, in the most partisan and
narrowminded way.On the other hand
when a republican meeting is held
in that city, it is to be supposed the
Herald will proceed to He and exag
gerr.te in the opposite direction, as
much as it did in the other in this" in
It- Js surprising that intelligent
newspaper men consider their readers
such an band of fools as to attempt
such imposition upon them. A man
who subscribes for a paper is entitl
ed to the news, written up bb it occur
ed, and those who fall in the perform
ance of this trust are too dishonest,
too partisan and too unreliable to be
considered newspaper men.
Here we have the. cause for the
failure of so many newspapers and
the existence of others from the pro
ceeds of blackmail and political
grafting. Sucl. papers Injure the po
litical cause they espouse and the
candidates they support more than
they do them good. "A fool friend"

and malicious statement. For the
benefit of the misinformed, the East
Oregonum will state that Bill Mat
lock holds Just one-fifth of the capi
tal stock of the East Orcgonlan, that
the J3a3t Oregonlan does not owe .him
a cent otherwise and that he lias been
a friend to the paper without In any
way, directly or Indirectly, interfer
ring with the management or policy
of the paper, or without burdening
it or embarrassing it, "for Bill Mat

Now, for the Jackanape, the whin
ing, hissing, wee, small voice, that
sometimes whines like a cur and
sometimes h.sses like a snake, in the
Tribune. Of all the disgusting little
apes aud political teat-suckers he is
the veriest runt, the hind-teat sucker
of the gang, the smallest gnat of a
brain that ever guided a human being
around, or ever sapped the strength
of those he fed upon. The East Ore
gonian forgives him, for It could not
bear so little and harmless a thing
ill will, for it recalls that "A fool al
ways accuses other people; a partial
ly wise man himself; a wholly wise
man neither himself nor others," and
we drop him for all time to come.
The Portland Oregonlan apparently
has no "fellow feeling." It has been
a political bolter many times and yet
it has no sympathy for Judge Lowell
because he is one at this time.

permit a female to succeed, whereas '
in Holland, by the law of 1S14. a fe-1

Of course, what the East Oregonjan
says about Bill Matlock cannot be
taken seriously. Mr. Matlock owns
