M, Llchtenthal, Highly Respected Cit
Izen of Heppner, Ends His Life.
M. Llchtenthal, ex-county treasurer
of Morrow county, committed suicide
yesterday at the expiration of his
term of office.
The telephone line to Heppner is
not In order today and it has been
impossible to get any details of the
suicide, further than that he was
found dead at home, leaving no ex
cuso for the deed.
As far as is reported there Is noth
ing wrong with the accounts, and his
friends here arc at a loss to know
.why ho should take this course.
He leaves one marneu uuuguier
and one single daughter by a first
wife and one single daughter by his
last wife, who survive him. He was
a highly respected man, having held
the office of county treasurer for
three terms, having been defeated for
the office at the recent election.
He was formerly engaged ln the
boot and shoe business at Heppner
and is spoken of by Theodore Danner
and T. W. Ayres of this city, as a
model citizen and one wh6 would be
considered free from any thoughts of

Mr. Grady said the courts had de
cided that Porto Itico is a part of the
United States. "Once a part of the
United States," he said, "It will never
be a part of any other country."
"The supreme court," ho continued,
"had declared the Philippines not a
part of the United States. It is for
those reasons tbe committee had ta

been approved by the democratic
masses of the country. (Applause).
South declared Porto Itlco, the Phil
ippines and Hawaii are all entitled to
receive recognition, and proposed an
amendment giving tho same rights to
the Philippines. His statement that
the PhlllDDlnes are as much entitled
to votes as Porto Itlco, was loudly ap

Congressman Handy of Delaware,

grounds tbat tho Philippines are not

Delegate South protested, declaring
the convention could only reject the
report of tho committee seating tho
Porto Itlco 'members, and declined to
withdraw his own amendment.
Grady of New York, chairman of
Uie rules committee, denied the com-
mltteo had exceeded Its authority.
Handy took the stand to argue tho
point, when he said tho democratic
party hoped the Philippines would ln
time elect their own presldont. The
convention cheered lustily.
The question of adopting tho re
port of tho committee as made was
put to the convention and carried by
a viva voce vote.
Arkansas demanded a recall, which
was voted down, and the head of the
delegation from Porto Rico, Senor
Mollnad, proceeded to the platform
and addressed the convention,
The coramlttoo on credentials an
nounced ll would not be ready to ro
al committees, that ovll-dJers be
driven from public service and prop
erly punished; that trusts shall bo
proceeded against by Indictment, as
are common and smaller criminals.
"The doctrine that wherever tbe
American flag floats It should con
tinue to float, right or wrong; and
that the only patriotism is to support
Iloosuvelt's Philippine policy, if he
has any, right or wrong, Is the veriest
rot, as silly as a tale told by an Idiot.
President Roosevelt Is not the coun
try. The time has not arrived when
the people will accept tho arrogant
dictum of Louis XIV, repeated by an
American president, 'I am the state.' "
Clark denounced the cringing dem
ocrats on tho other hand who said the
president should bo supported in his
Philippine policy oven if it is wrong.
Has Roosevelt a policy7 Ho denied
It, classing him as an opportunist,
waiting for something to turn up. In
the meantime our soldiers are being
killed and are dying of disease in
shoals, a president cannot be better
than his party, and he, Roosevelt,
could not find wdrso Swlitical compa
ny this year,
Clark denied emphatically tho
charge that tho democratic party
was in favor of freo trade. "Individ
ual democrats there are who are free
traders. Just as there are individual
republicans who are atheists."
Tariff Bolster for Trusts,
Where tariff rates aro so high they
enable American manufacturers to
sell their wares abroad cheaper than
they do to Americans hero at home,
they ought to be reduced. "If this be
anarchy or treason, make the most
Will some stand-patter explain why
Americans should bo mado to pay
one-third more for American steel
rails than do the citizens of other na
tions? He claimed tbat tho panic of 1893
was clearly a republican made panic
Turning to American shipping, he
said that "When tho American goes
abroad ho must sail under a foreign
flag on a foreign ship and under for
eign offlcers. Why? llocauso our
exorbitant tariff mado it lmposslblo
tor Americans to build ships In com
petition with tho British. Yet tho
republican gang has the inflnlto gall
to prnto about its patriotism."
Whacking away at trusts, Clark
enld that under republican inlsrulo
trusts have sprung up Mo mush
rooms. A Btraw that Indicated tho
trusts have nothing to fear from re
publican trust busters, was the ap
pointment of Knox to succeed Quay.
Another straw Is tho recent report
that Wnll street opinion has under
gone a change of opinion toward
Roosevelt. Has tho president chang
ed hta views or have tho trust mag
nates changed theirs?
