DIRECT FROM OLD ENGLAND
We have Just received the first direct import order of
I Tmtih Brakes
ever brought to Pendleton. They are made of the finest Eng
lish bristles, with wax back (a new idea) which makes it im
possible fot 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, but 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 CENTS.-

FRIDAY, MAY 9, 1902.
State government is costing the
people a great deal of money. Tho
republicans responsible for It have
spent money, In some Instances
squandered it, with a free hand
There is no reason for thinking,
that, if their power is renewed, thore
will be any abatemont of tho burden.
The revenues required for the
Btate during 1902 will reach $1,100,
000 and probably the next legislature
will be called on to meet a deficiency
The increase in the expenses of
state government has been some
thing like ?4GO,000 tor one year.
This is simply extravagance, a disre
gard of the advantages of good gov
ernment economically administered.
The republican party is alone respon
sible for this condition. Those of the
party who have held the reins, in no
particular have they considered the
rights of the people, but have simply
looked after the needs and demands
of the "grafters." They have poured
the money of the state into individ
ual pockets. The people have been
"worked," and there is no promise
that the abuse is to be discontinued
Should then there be any surprise
if the voters should decide to change
servants at the polls in June? Sure
ly, the party In power deserves to be
turned out and the "stables" they
have occupied for so many years,
"cleaned out." It is not a bad thing
to "clean up" now and then. A
change cquld not increase the bur
den, and the possibilities are it
would greatly reduce it.
Those who pay the taxes are
thiniang about it from this stand
point. Tho East 6regoulan has
heard some of tho burden carriers
those who really pay the taxes,
though indirectly talk. They say
the republicans in state offices have
not done what they should have
done, have neglected public duties
while looking out for selfish and pri
vate interests. Thore would not ex
ist any cause for wonderment if the
voters in all parts of the state de
cided not to stand for it any longer,
and vote against the republican
party. Its record in the state justi
fies the action. There are some
signs that portend this result.
THE WATfcR CURE.
According to tho Philadelphia
Times, tho "water cure" is "as old
to the navy as wooden hulls and
hemp rigging, and "the deep-sea
sailor calls It 'handy billy wash
down,'" It Js utilized whenever
sailors "come on board" in a drunken
and boisterous condition. At such
times the sailor's hands aro tied be
hind him and "lashed to a bolt in
the deck." The small hand force
pump Is then brought into action
with, a nozzlcless hose, hold close to
"Jack's" face, which gives him the
"wash down." If that does not quiet
him, .the stream is turned upon his
mouth and tho order givon to "pump
away" until "Jack" decides that ho
will promiso to reform.
Those who have administered tho
"water cure" in tho Philippines
Bhould be made to take somo of their
own medicine; should bo convicted
of Inhuman conduct against a lot of
lgnoraut. barborous negroes nnd
punished aB thoy punished others.
Tho fact that a number of men
wearing tho American uniform, menj
who wore supposed to bo civilized. ,
would be such brutes aB to torture!
helpless and irresponsible brown
mon, descendants of those who had
boen brutalized by Spanish cruelty
for centuries, is something to be
ashamed of and not to be excused.
Those of the American army, guilty
of such atrocities as are reported
from the Philippines, have disgraced
their uniforms and placed free Amer
ica upon a level with the "rotten
monarchy" that we succeeded in
tho Philippines. Men who defend
American institutions cannot ap
prove or countenance such conduct
for a minute. To do so would be to
lower the nation In the scale of civ
ilization and put the American peo
pie on a level with the brute crea
HEAR THE Oi,.l SIDE.
The Portland Oregonian is widely
read In this section of the state and
as it presonts. only one side, and
thnt in a very partisan way, of the
political issues now before the peo
ple of Oregon, tho East Oregonian
will, from time to time, quote the
editorial matter of the Portland
Journal, the new evening paper pub
lished In Portland, and which, also,
is a republican paper, but not one
favoring the same republicans as
does the Oregonian. The following
articles are from the Journal's edi
torial pages, under date of May 2:
There Is politics and politics.
There are always in every campaign
some genuine questions engaging
public attention. And there are
nearly always some feigned isues
designed by politicians to divert at
tention from the real questions.
There is n very real question in
the campaign of deeper present im
portance than, any party question
It 1b whether a cabal of politicians
by ruling the dominant party shall
also rule the state. In Multnomah
county it is whether the right of lo
cal self-government is to be sacri
ficed to tho ambition of one man for
a seat in the United States senate.
The people love to have a voice in
their own affairs. They will have it.
Tho republican voters put the con
trol of the party In the hands of the
present managers upon the distinct
promise that they would abolish ma
chine methods. They never meant
to substitute one ring for another.
But the promiso was broken. The
party has passed under the yoke.
Somo of the resentment against
this ticket is due doubtless to fac
tional antagonism of long standing.
But deeper than that, more wide
spread than that, is the popular in
stinct that a government far removed
from the popular choice cannot be a
good government for the people.
The Matthews ticket is not a repub
lican ticket. It was not named by
the republican party. Its candi
dates would not have been named by
any freo election by the republican
voters nor in any untrammelled and
unpledged republican convention.
Not one of the candidates could have
got on the ticket without a pledge
first given to obey Jack Matthews.
These are undisputed facts. They
are notorious. In fact, they are Jus
tified by the organ of the new ring.
To call such a ticket a republican
ticket is a misnomer. It is a Jack
Matthews' ticket, ouly that and noth
We use Mr. Matthews' name gono-
rically. Ho stands as the visible re
presentative of a subtorranean clique
moving in the dark towards a secret
and baleful purpose. There is noth
ing open about It. The only thing
wo do know is that the ticket was
put up to elect some particular per
son to the United States senate.
Jack knows who that is, but ho
won t toll.
Now tho Citizens' ticket is a pro
test against tho ruthless machine.
Tho people who organized this
protest havo beon maligned and
discredited by tho machine organ
No citizen who ventures to lift his
voice against tho machine is exempt
from the scorn and abuse of tho or
gan. Tuoy are an or uie aimon ma
chine. If this wore so if tho people wore
reduced to tho necessity of chodslng
between machines 13 tho Matthews
machine proforablo? Tho Simon peo
ple, at least, fought In tho open.
Thoy asked no votes on false pro
tenses. But the Matthews' mnchlno
does not do that. It pretouded to bo
the people. It was against machine
methods. It wob going to give the
people a chance. And thou, at the
very first deal, it turned upJack from
nut iinfnrhinntnlv. the neonle are
not reduced to a choice between ma
chines. The citizens' candidates are
iinnlodcnil npnnt to the people.
They take no ordors from Jnck Mat

sent only the protest ngnlnst a
Bnliirmo of nolitlcs that, if successful,

It is no part of political or pariy
duty of the people to support a ticket
they had no hand in nominating. The
victory of such a ticket would not be
a republican victory. It would be a
republican defeat. For It would be

the republican party. It would re
duce an organization designee to ex
press the will of republican voters to
a machine to effect the will of Jack
Matthews, and through him the will
of the mysterious candidate ior
United States senator.
This cabal is not only fooling the
public; it is fooling Its own adher
nnin Thpv urn nledced to an un
known result. They are going it
blind. How will it be when the cur
tntn rlsps fnr Multnomah renublicans

toria statesman, Hon. Charles w
Mr. Fulton isn't a bad man, but he
Ik from Astoria. Astoria isn't a bad
town, but it wants to bottle up Port
land nnd the Willamette valley.
At nnv rate. If renublicans are to
vote for Mr. Fulton, they ought to be
permitted to do it with their eyes
open. Mr. Scott says he is not a
candidate, and Mr. Fulton says he
himself is. Now if Jack turns down
Fulton, whom will he turn up?
There was a time when the repub
lican purpose and policy was in nc
tual danger. In 189G a republican
defeat in Multnomah county meant
something. At that time the present
candidates and managers of the Mat
thews party were fighting the repub
llcan party. They had a right to do
so, because they did not agree with
the republican policy and purpose.
But what republican policy is in dan
ger now? Is it the ship subsidy bill?
Is it the trust differential on sugar?
Is it the Chinese sailors on American
ships? Is it the danger of a Nicar
agua canal? Is It the beef trust?
Is it the water cure? Is it Cuban re
ciprocity that reciprocates with the
trusts? These gentlemen set us a
good example of independence under
honest convictions, no doubt. We
take pleasure in following it.
It is probable that at the time of
the republican state convention
there was a strong demand in East
ern Oregon for the nomination of a
candidate from that part of the state.
The struggle In the convention was
for new blood, new methods, a new
element In the saddle. Doubtless
the republican candidate won his
nomination largely through the
strength of this demand, in so far as
the rank and file of his party was
concerned; also utilizing liberal
sums of money in canvassing the
counties and in all of the devious
ways of the practical politician. Af
ter the smoke of battle had cleared
away it was found that the victory
had beon won by no new company
of political workers, with the excep
tion that those who gained control
had brought forward a now man
one but recently close in the counsels
of tho democratic party and who had
aligned himself with the opposition
only four years ago.
Apparently a fight between the old
nnd the new, it was in fact but a
contest between two old factions.
one of which defeated the other, tho
regular organization, and exercised
the power of the stronger, to blast
the hopes of the minority for future
This, then, Is the reason why senti
ment changed In Eastern Oregon
for that sentiment has changed in
favor of the democratic candidate is
conceded by the most astute politl
clans in Oregon. Instead of winning
a victory for a gallant young Loch
Invnr, who rode out of tho east, the
Eastern Oregon republicans had
fought to bolster up the fortunes of
a political faction that had existed
so long as any man now living can

Koeppen's Soda Fountain is again in shape to serve yo'u with
delicious soda. A new counter has taken the place of the old
one, and a number of changes have been made in order that
we can serve soda to better advantage.
WE MOST CORDIALLY INVITE YOU
to come to our fountain and try our delicious soda water. We are serving
all the popular drinks of the season. Not every one can make good soda
water, any more than every woman can make good piqs. However, we've
got the knack of making and serving fountain drinks that are simply delicious.
Of course the most popular drink in Pendleton last year was Uma Soda. If
you didn't drink Uma Soda last year you missed something. You want to
be sure that you try Uma Soda this season. It's a 5 cent drink, but most
people think it as good as many 10 cent drinks. We take great pride in
this drink. If you want something really delicious and rich, just invests
cents in a drink of Uma Soda.
OUR ICE CREAM
Is the richest and purest that can be had. We get our cream every morning
from the creamery at Blue Mountain dairy, hear Meacham. We use cream
only, and that of the richest kind. We use no milk, eggs, starch, gelatine
or tilling of any kind in our ice cream, and we don't know of any other firm
in the Northwest where they make their ice cream our of cream alone. We
believe in using the best and being liberal, giving good measure, heaped up
and running over. We want every person, old or young, to have a good
word to say about our fountain. ,
Our Egg Phosphates are popular because the eggs we use in our egg
phosphates are always fresh. We have a supply of fresh eggs delivered to
us every day. . 3
