DIRECT FROM OLD ENGLAND
We have just 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 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.

A DEMOCRATIC DEMOCRAT.
C. E. S. Wood has been chosen as
the 'candidate of the democracy o
Oregon for the United States sen
ate. The mantle could not have fal
len on more deserving shoulders. Mr.
Wood Is a democrat at heart, In
sentiment and in practice. He hu
lteves In the rule of the people, in
government by, of and for them. He
believes in equal rights and in per
sonal liberty. He would have tho cltl
zon do something for the govern
ment, Instead of having the govern
ment do everything for the citizen
He would have democratic govern
ment, created by the free expression
of the voice of tho people. He would
not restrain or check that voice In
any particular, for in doing this, ho
would do tho most to make the cltl
zon more and more capable. of self-
support and self-government, and
thus make him less and less a bur
den upon the state.
There would be little need of gov
ernment, if every Individual was so
constituted as to stand for equal
rights and, so standing, be self-sup
porting and self-governing. In so far
that this is impossible, then govern
ment is necessary. C. E. S. Wood
is that sort of a democrat that looks
to the making of a government less
and least and tho individual more
and most. Mr. Wood Is a man who
believes in equality of opportunity,
He is a Jeffersonian democrat of the
first water and if he were elected his
services to the state and to tho peo
ple would bo those of a faithful,
courageous, just man to those ho
loved and for whom he would love
THE STORY OF MARY MCLANE.
i-ane, ot uutte, is not the worso
story written, by any means. At
least her story possesses originality
and has the freshness of being new
with the fire of an individuality out
of the oruinary.
OREGON AND EGYPT.
On the map Egypt covers a terri
tory of large extent. The cultivated
land, that which the Iilo wrests from
the desert, is barely 11,000 square
miles in extent. It lies on either side
of the Nile in a long, narrow strip
varying in width at the north into the
fan-shaped delta. To put it differ
ently Oregon is more than eight
times as large as all cultivated
Egypt. And this land supports
population three times as great as
that of Oregon and vastly more
contented. If Oregon was propor
tionately populated with Egypt it
would number 72,000,000 people.
It is surprising to learn that the
average value of Egyptian farm land
Is $120 an acre. In the delta, nearer
to the great markets and more cer
tain of the Nile's annual gift of life,
the farm land brings at its seldom
sale, as much as $400 or $500 an
acre. The soil Is patient and long
suffering, like the people. It grows
from two to five crops each year and
only rebels when if. is not worked.
And the people of Egypt have grown
worse and worse off as their lands
have Increased in value.
in otner worus, tnose who own
the lands, owns the people, and labor
has to pay returns upon these ex
cesslve. values before It has any-
thing for its own mouth and back.
Where lands are capitalized the
highest, there is where labor Is
most dependent upon capital and
equal opportunity to all men Is most
denied. High land values and high
rents fall upon labor not upon capi
Mary McLane, of Butte, has writ
ton a book, "Tho Story of Mary Mc
Lane," and from some quarters a
wall Is going up over what Mary Mc
Lane has written in that book.
Judging by the strange noises being
mado over Mary McLano's book, one
would Judge that it will have a
great circulation, as It Is receiving
more than ,its share of free advertis
Tho writer of these lines has no
particular interest In Mary Mc Lane
nor her book and has never seen
either Mary nor read her story. How
over, a few striking sentences from
Mary McLane's bool; have floated to
him, with tho flotsam and jetsam that
usually passes his way, and If these
sentences are a sample of tho con
tents of Mary McLano'B book, that
work is not without real merit. For
"Often my mind chants a fervent
litany of its own that runs some
thing like this:
"From women nnd men who dls
penso odors of musk; from little boys
with long curls; from tho kind peo
ple who call a woman's flguro nor
shapo kind dovll, doilver mo.
iFrom all sweet girls; froni 'gen

"From JIslo thread stockings; from

"From Insipid Bweet wine; from
men who wear mustaches; from tho
sort of peoplo that call legs 'limbs;'
from bedraggled whlto .petticoats

centrlclty, hut they nro seasoned
with wisdom. If there are many

story, of, Mary McLano by.Mary M,J a lonstUuUnil amendment
While tho United States senate
pigeon holes the proposed amend
ment for tho election of senators by
popular vote, the people of Oregon
aro about to test a device for ef
fecting tho same object without the
consent of the federal government.
A recent law of that state provides
that any state convention may make
a nomination for United States sena
tor, and that such nominee shall ha
entitled to have his name on the of-
llciai ballot. Voters aro thereby en.
abled to declaro their preference for
United States 'senator, regardless of
tneir preferences for other ofllcers,
and it is assumed that tho legisla
ture in choosing senators will bo in
fluenced by tho popular vote. It is
not compelled, of course, to obev
But, whenovcr it is of the same po
litical complexion as tho popular
canuiuato for senator, it would hard
ly have tho temerity to roiect him:
and In tho case of a largo popular
vote in ins lavor, even a hostile legl
slaturo might be embarrassed.
Tho first trial of this law Is to bo
mado with C. E. S. Wood, of Port
land, as the democratic candidate,
at the election to bo held on tho 2d
of Juno. Mr. Wood Is tho gentleman
whoso speech at the democratic
gathering In the Manhattan club at
Now York last spring made tho
David B. Hill "reorganlzers" so un
comfortable Ho is distinctly nnd
unquestionably a democratic demo-
crat; nnd whatever may bo tho re

crats of Oregon are democratic

listing the Initiative and referen
dum is to voted on. The amend
ment provides that while the legis
lative power of the stato Is vested in
a senate and a house of representa
tives, yet the peoplo reserve to
themselves power to propose laws
and amendments to the constitution
and to enact or reject the same at
the polls, Independent of the legisla
tive assembly, and also reserve
power at their own option to ap
prove or reject at the polls any act
of the legislative assembly.
The first power reserved by the
people is the initiative, and not more
than eight per cent, of the legal vo
ters shall be required to propose any
measure by such petition, and every
such petition shall include the full
text of tho measure so proposed.
The second power Is the referen
dum, and it may be ordered (except
as to laws necessary for the immedi
ate preservation of the public peace,
health or safety), cither by the peti
tion signed by five per cent, of the
legal voters or by the legislative as
sembly, as other bills are enacted.
The veto power of the governor
shall not extend to measures referred

This amendment passed both
houses of tho Oregon icgislaturp in
1899 by large majorities, and in 1901
by unanimous vote in the house and
with only one dissenting vote in the
senate, and was signed by Gov. Geer,
January 31, 1901. If adopted at tho
state election it will mark another
distinct advance among the states in
the direction of democratic govern
ment. The Public, Louis F. Post's

We aim to sell the best of hats-and we do. Nothing
but hats from the best makers find room

best hat for the price that is made. If we

there is no better.
Hats this season are rather high in the

high. We have hats to suit every taste and
COME AND SEE
A POPULIST LEGACY.
The initiative and referendum will
be left to Oregon as the legacy of
the people's party. Though finally
brought about by the old parties, it
was begun by the populists and is
now in part the price of populist
support of the republican party
Long ago the democrats joined in ad
vocating this purely democratic idea
but the republicans promised it
passing support only in a barter for
votes. It was done, with no thought
ol seriousness, but happily it be
came a fine lever for boosting other
factional schemes In tho great bood
le party until now its passage is a
foregone conclusion It will meet op.
position yet by tarseeing republican
politicians as It contains the germ
of their destruction, and if it should
not pass at the coming election, re
publicans will slaughter it. It is not
a republican measure. After Its pas
sage that party will discourage its
use and use every effort to limit and
uisquallty its constituted uses. We
hope they will not, but it Is alto
gether too democratic for republl
can methods, so mark our prediction.
