Direct From Old England
We have this day received the first direct import order of
ever brought to Pendleton. They are made of the finest Eng
lish bristles, with wax back (a new idea) which makes it im
possible foi the bristles to come out, as is the case with most
brushes. Every brush has our name and guarantee stamped
plainly on it, and is not only backed up by ourselves, buc the
manufacturers as well Should any brush prove unsatisfactory,
a new one will be given in its place or money refunded. They
come in hard, medium and soft bristles. Where can you buy a
brush like them for the money ? We are making a leader of
them at 35 GENTS.

CEER FOR SENATOR.
Governor Geer failed of renomina
tlon, and failing, is casting arouud
for some other office to seek. Profit
ing from the example of others, he
sets his aim high. He wants to be
United States senator, and lie is
making a play for it by putting his
name upon the official ballots as
candidate for senator by circulating
petitions in different portions of the
state. The averago politician has no
modesty, but he does have assurance,
Governor Geer was "turned down"
by the people of his party for renom
ination, and yet he has the "cheek '
to attempt to make a deal by which
he can secure a lien upon the Oregon
senatorial office as tlio successor of
Joseph Simon. Governor Geer knows
that he has no fitness for United
States senator; knows that he would
be as much out of his element in
the office "as a fish is out of water;
knows that ho would be thrusting
himself upon the people of Oregon,
and yet he is willing to put himself
in the senate regardless, through ma
nipulation and ownership of the leg
In other words, Governor Geer
nopetul of making a deal to stop
pouting nnd frothing against the re
publican ticket, from Its head to its
tail, in consideration of services to
bo rendered him nt the time the next
legislature Is to elect Joo Simon's
successor. How do the peoplo ad
miro those who traffic in office and
use public trusts with which to ad
vance their own personal interests,
whilo they cultivate knavery and ex-
his office have been increased beyond
the constitutional limit by legisla
tive acts until it now reaches the
sum of $8000 per annum. But the
monumental imposition of all upon
the taxpayers of the state, in com
parison with which each of the other
extravagances to which I have allud
ed pale into insignificance, is the
cost of conducting the department of
state printing, the appropriation for
which for the past four years has
been over V14G,000, an annual aver
age expense to taxpayers of the state
of nearly ?4G,000 per annum."
The voters of Oregon can continue
this burden upon themselves by vot
ing the republican ticket. They can
remove the larger portion of it by
voting the democratic ticket, by elect
ing George E. Chamberlain, who, on
the stump throughout the state,
pledges his efforts to the correction
of these abuses. The East Oregonian
has full confidence in this gentle
man's pledges and hopes the people
will have equally as much.
The fiat salary proposition is one
of merit. Push it along. When it is
put into practice there will not be
so many seeking office, but the office
will be left to seek the man, and that
is a condition to be prayed for.

As thus amended, It is doubtful If
the house resolution could pass eith
er branch of congress, as it would be
opposed by the solid democratic vote
and by a large number of republi
cans who believe that the individual
states should control their own sena
It is an old trick that Mr. Depow
Is playing, but never a very respecta
ble trick. Generally it is the resort
of third rate politicians. By using
it Mr. Depew must forfeit, to some
extent, oven the respect of his
friends and admirers.
Portland Oregonian: It is un
doubtedly true, ns Chairman Babcock
says, that the republican prospect in
this year's campaign Is for a hard
uphill fight. The membership of the
democratic congressional committee
shows that the load of sllverism has
been cast off. Gold democrats like
Olney and I.amont in the east, and
Wood, Seufert and Holman in Ore
gon, have returned to the party. The
fight will bo hot The result will
probably be close. The republican
majority in the house may be cut
down or wiped out altogether.
The house resolution providing for
the election of senators by direct
vote of the people met its fate in the
senate the oner day, when by a ma
jority of one, the Depow amendment
agreed upon. This was intended to
kill the measure and will no doubt
have the desired effect. The amend
ment is as follows:
"Tlie qualifications of citizens en
titled to vote for United States sen
ators and representatives in congress
shall be uniform in all the states and
congress shall have the power to en
force this article by appropriate
legislation and to provide for the re
gistration of citizens entitled to vote,
the conduct of such elections, and
the certification of the result."
This will place tlie resolution in
such a shape that the southern sen
ators can under no circumstances

George E. Chamberlain, candidate
on tho democratic ticket for governor
m His speeches to tho people, says:
"Tho constitution provides , that the
annual salary of tho governor shall

that of the Judges of the supremo

Hhall receive no fees or po rnuisltes

salary of tlie governor and tho ex

A reader of the Commoner asks
for a concise statement of the advan
tages to bo expected from the elec
tion of senators by direct vote of the
people, and Mr. Bryan answers the
query as follows:
First It brings tho government
nearer to the people a sufficient ad
vantage in itself, for It enables the
people to select whom they wish and
to punish those who betray their
Second It avoids the corruption
that, with increasing frequency, 1e
attending tho election of senators by
Third It enables tho state legis
lature to attend to state maters un
disturbed by national politics.
The objections to tho reform come
first, from those who think that the
senators represent tho states, nnd
that state equality in tho senate
would be disturbed. Tlioy aro mis
taken. While the senators represent
tho states they do not represent tho
state administration, but the people
o the Btate, and tho question of
equal representation is not in any
way effected by tho mode of election.
Tho second objection comes from
those who have no confidence In the
Judgment of patriotism of tho peoplo,
and fear to trust thorn with tho se
lection of thoir representatives In
The third objection comes from
peoplo who represent great corpora
tions and know that tho corporations
connot control popular elections as
effectively as thoy can elections by
'The fourth objection comes from
rich men who think that It is dinner
or at least easier to buy a majority
in the legislature than to buy a ma-
onty or tho peoplo.
Weston Leader: According to the
estimable Pendleton Tribune, tlie
county clerk's office is occupied at
present by incompetent "seat warm
ers." Indeed? Perhaps the seats in
the clerk's office are kept a trifle
warm by two men who were uoing
the county's work whene three were
formerly required but it has served
a useful purpose. No man in this
county, democrat or republican, had
anything to say against genial, affa
ble, pleasant, kindly, honest Ben
Burroughs. Even in the heat of
campaign, nobody had over accused
him of being unfaithful or incompe
tent. But in the last two full years
of Mr. Burrough's administration
tho expense of running the clerk's of
fice was ?4744.97 for 1898 and $4,
550.02 for 1889. For 1901, under Mr.
Chamberlain's administration, the
expenses were ?3398.Gz, or twelvo to
fourteen hundred dollars less. It
would appear that "seat warmers" of
this character the county can afford
to keep, especially when they happen
to be capable, courteous and obliging.
Portland Chronicle, Rep.: George
Chamberlain has pledged the people
of Oregon that if elected governor lie
vill veto all tho reckless appropria
tlons and grafts, which have made
taxes so insufferably high. What lie
promises he performs, as his public
record abundantly shows. Of how
Infinitely greater importance to the
average farmer, whose taxes bear
down heavily, is it that a man should
be at the state house for the purpose
of stoplng waste thau heading the
ceremonies at the Portland exnosl
tion, or sitting at the table to look
sweet when the president comes.
Heppnor Times: W. J. Furnish is
a typical Eastern Oregon product,
having spent nearly all his lifetime
In Pendleton, Umatilla countv.
There ho grew from a poor father
less lad into a leading business man.
His extensive business experience
and his admirable traits of ch nrno.

of governor, and we believe he will
bo elected by a large majority at
the polls In June. Mr. Furnish is our

of governor of Oregon. Let Morrow

Corvallis Times: A political
event of some moment is the an
nouncement the latter part of last
week, that Judge Stephen A. Lowell
of Pendleton has come out for George
E. Chamberlain for governor. Judge
Lowell is known throughout Oregon
as a man of highest charac
ter, as a profound and upright jurist
and as a citizen of tlie purest type.
He was in Benton during tho lasi
presidential campaign, when lie dis
cussed the political issues from the
republican standpoint at Philomath.
Judge' Lowell, like George Chamber
lain, is noted for purity in political
Athena Press: The Pendleton Tri
bune still continues to inject gas'
and hot air into the political cam
paign. How significant were these
words from the lips of a prominent
Weston republican: "If wo had one
more Tribune in this county, you
fellows would have a walk over."
Trashy, mudslinging editorials in
country journalism have .long been
relegated to a past that is dead. De
cency, common sense and courtesy
duo and expected of one political op
ponent to another is either Ignored,
ambushed or cached away in these
days only by willful, nonedscript
swaddlings, who would bettor fill the
bill at playing lean frotr. than in
warming an editorial chair.
