NO LOG-ROLLING FOR FAIR
Senator Williamson Goes on Record
'I hava heard Intimations that East
ern Oregon would hold up the legis
lature for a lot of special favors be
fore letting the appropriation for the
Lewis and Clark Fair go through,"
said Senator Williamson, of Crook
county, last night. "Now, I wish to
say that I know of no sucn disposi
tion on the part of Eastern Oregon,
nnd I wish to go on record as being
emphatically opposed to It. I want
tho Lewis and Clark appropriation to
stJhid squarely on its merits, and I,
for one, will not consent to yoking it
un with extraneous matters. There
should be a llboral appropriation for
the exposition, and I do not believe
tho other narts of the state will re
gard It as a local matter to be bought
"I have also heard that an-attorapt
will be made to subject the Lewis and
Clark appropriation to trading for
votes for United States senator; that
outside candidates might demand
support from the Multnomah delega
tion In return for votes for the fair
appproprlation. If I should know of a
candidate taking that course he
would forfeit my support. I should do
all I could against any candidate
adopting those methods.
"I do not bellovo In log-rolling
practices, anyway. Whatever matters
I shall have to present to the legisla
ture. 1 shall nut upon their merits
and expect them, to be treated accord
ingly. I hope there will be nothing
to mix up with tho Lewis nnd .Clark
appropriation, and, that It will be
aeait with squarely ana aoove Doaru,
At any rate, I give notice now that I
will not bo a party to any net that will
put that enterprise upon a plane of
a purely locnlproject You' cannot
make this too emphatic." Oregonlan.
