"ME, OR NOBODY."
During the progress of tho ballot
for United States senator, last night.
the telegraphic dispatches announced
that C. W. Fulton had said: "Unless
I am elected there will be a deadlock.'
This despotic Idea, whether express
ed by C. W. Fulton or a candidal
for constable in a cross-roads hamlet
represents the same "rule or ruin
It sets aside the will of the people,
the common Interests of the country
the fair rules of war, that give jvery
man a chance for his life, and all
tho worthy aim of true statesman
It places self as the sole object of
all government. It makes one man's
will arbitrary master of the many.
C. W. Fulton is probably as able
a candidate as there was in the race
for senator. He is perhaps as worthy
of the place as any other member of
But he did not make any friends
for himself nor his party by saying
that he was willing for the people of
the state of Oregon to be deprived of
the benefit of a senator for two years
in order to satisfy his personal ambi
.He exhibited a despotic inclination
that will be a boomerang to the forces
that he summoned to his aid.
The people have rights which are
entitled to respect, oven in politics.
They aro not wholly without power of
retaliation. The boast that It will ho
"me, or nobody," Is a dangerous
thought to express In a free govern
This Is the weakest point ever ex-
hlblted by Mr. Fulton, at any time
in his long public service in Oregon.
There is a train of attendant evils
connected with that Idea In politics,
that threaten party organization, and
even good government Itself.
If a man starts In to win on that
principle, he uses undue and unjust
means from the very beginning. Ho
lays a foundation In corruption and
completes his edifice with an ntter
disregard for the public weal.
Self reigns supreme In every' stage
of the campaign founded on that
proposition. The people aro not reck
oned. Their Interests aro secondary
considerations. Is It a safe platform
to stand upon? Will Oregon be bene
fited by it?
IMPROVE THE RECORD.
Pendleton escaped the pruning knlfo
of the charter revisionists by a nar
row margin. It now remains for tho
peoplo and the council to so strictly
enforce tho laws and ordinances of
tho city, that the test of tho present
system will be conclusive by the time
another legislative session arrlvos.
Tho recorJ for municipal order and
morality during tho noxt two years
will bo watched with Interest, for
upon that record will hang tho fato
of tho present charters.
Tho legislature declined to interfere
in tho affairs of tho city, oven In tho
face of a strong petition of represen
tative citizens. Tho wishes of tho
city council were recognized in the
matter and the faith of the legislature
In the representatives of the council
and those who opposed n change,
must not be disappointed.
It Is in tho power of the council to
see that laws are enforced; to make
the conditions better, if possible, and
to prove the wisdom of the mthods
now in force.
If the proper showing is made, the
people will not ask for a change two

It seems to be the mission and aim
of a certain class of newspapers to
exaggerate bad news and color tamo
facts until they border on the sensa
tional. The reports from the Idaho and
Wyoming sheep ranges during tho
blizzard of one week ago. would Indi
cate that the sheep of those districts
were almost entirely wiped from tho
face of the earth. The accounts of
the losses were so startling that
people who believed there was any
truth in thein, began to wonder what
the misfortune meant to Idaho.
The first accounts of the storm de
clared that the ranges were swept
clean; that the industry was ruined
and that Idaho had suffered an irrep
Investigation proves that feed is
plentiful, stock is In good condition
and that tho losses were confined to
very few isolated localities. j
The same "yellow" telegraphic news
service points a horrible condition on
the stock ranges of Grant county.
From the reports sent to Portland
papers by "sensation hunters" from
the interior districts, it would seem
to outside readers, not acquainted
with the facts, that open riot threat
ened the communlcles. bloodshed was
inevitable, and armed resistance to
imaginary foes was being made by
the peacaole citizens of Grant county.
This criminal news making should
be dealt a deserved knock-out blow by
the Indignant and wronged residents
of tho range districts of Oregon.
It Is a false representation of con
ditions on Oregon stock ranges. It
Is an untrue portrayal of the citizen
ship of those districts and Is an unjust
insinuation against tho good order
and high moral tone that predomin
ates in every settlement In the West.
Homeseekers reading these frantic
news efforts will wonder what sort
of civilization exists In Oregon. They
will hesitate to Inspect tho opportu
ities of a region surrounded by such

Examination of the livestock situ

two fact3 into prominent light, says
the Southern Oregonian, of Medtord.
Producers of beef and pork animals
should put a better finish on them,
both for their own profit and for tho
leputc of tho business. On tho other
hand, buyers should recognize the su
perior finish with a superior price.
When the market lets tho finished
animals go begging, there is small en
couragement to the producer. Buyer
and producer must work together to
build up the meat industry. Neither
should bear the whole burden.
