THE SOUTH AND THE TARIFF.
While some New Englanders
are demanding tariff revision,
an increasing number of enter
prising and progressive men. in
the South are favoring adher
ence to the policy of a protect
ive tariff. The change in south
ern sentiment in this particular
is very noticeable and highly
President Roosevelt's personal
popularity in the bouth is no
doubt working wonders among
the people of that section in re
spect to their attitude toward
political issues and parties. The
fact that the republican party
advocates protection and the
further fact that its most con
spicuous representative at the
present time is President Roose
velt makes many southern men
feel more kindly toward the or
ganization. They may not be
prepared to announce themselves
as republicans, but they certain
ly no longer look upon a south
ern republican as a trator to his
section of the country.
Industrial development in the
South is, however, chiefly re
sponsible for the growing senti
ment in favor of protection.
. Cotton manutacturing and the
production of iron and steel have
increased enormously, and thus a
manufacturing class composed of
both capitalists and laborers has
developed in that section. It is
but natural if these people are
so much in favor of protection
as their competitors in other
parts of the country. Denver
FATAL YEAR FOR BOSSES.
Very Interesting Communication
From the Metropolis.
Feb. 12, 1906.
Ed. Gazette: The cat is out
ol the sack at last. No, that is
not exactly correct. He is not
exactly out, but can be seen
plainly. The old fellow has had
his head sticking out for some
time. He has been waiting for
a favorable opportunity to make
the jump. That time has nearly
armed, tie was sa:ked p some
mouths ago by parties who
thought it prudent not t have
him squalling around until the
lawn was fully cleared and all
things in rtadiness. His name
is E. L. Smith, and he wants to
We have no authoiitv to make
this statement, for Mr. Smith
denies that he is a candidate and
says that he has not at any time
consented to run. But he add
ed: "I may come out, should
my friends insist upon it, but 1
do not want the office unless
there is a general desire for me to
Mr. Smith is an honest man
and we give him credit for try
ing to believe that he is telling
the truth, and lor not knowing
ho.v ;utly he is humbugging
himself. He does not thick it is
wise to let it be known that he
wants the office and is showing
a .,ccics of modesty by denying
the fact. This modesty is induc
ed by the same mental traits that
.induces a coy maiden to declare
that she despises the opposite sex
u -ik' the is almost dying for a
lover. This once peculiar phen
omena is getting to be quite com
mon and no longer deceives any
one but its individual victim.
Mr. Smith really believes that
he is a modest man and more en
titled to respect than he who
comes out boldy and makes his
ambition known. Should he be
nominated and elected we believe
that he woul 1 make a good gov
ernor out of bimelf if he could.
But he would of tinly enter
the race wondei: .:iy handicap
ped. He is one of the old-time
Oregon politicians one who has
'sot" in its councils and partici
pated in its legislation while his
tmtv was being betraved, dis-
ine inhered and disgraced. He
has heard all, ; known all the
party managment of. which re
publicans are now complaining.
His modestv has prevented
him from speaking out while de-1
structive political intrigues and
betrayals were being carried on
by his colleagues. He is now
being supported by many honest
men who think that he could be
elected.- But these are net the
ones 'who initiated the move
ment and are prime factors in it.
The men who conceived the idea
of running; Mr. Smith, and who
for some time have been getting
little hints about it in the papers,
and who are now organizing a
systematic canvass of the stater to
g?l signatures to a petition ask
ing him to run, are men who
have no standing aside from a
political ring that has?t already
disgraced the state and - against
which the present primary elec
tion law is but an act of rebel
What means the statement in
today's Uregoman, that sucn a
petition might induce Mr. Smith
to become a candidate? What
can it mean but that the state is
being canvassed by these men
and their dupes, that every pre
cinct will be visited and that
the people will be urged to sign
for Mr. Smith until such an array
of signatures are secured that Mr,
Smith, of Hood River, shall at
last be induced to enter the race
and appear before the people as
the already-chosen governor?
. Indignation must pause for a
moment while we admire the
genius who planned this marvel
ous method to defeat the intent
and spirit of the primary election
law. The next move on the
boards will be apparently as in
nocent as the last. There will
in 'a few davs appear in some of
the Portland papers, probably on
the editorial page of the Oregon
ian, something like this: "Re
quests, petition?, and even sup
plications, have poured in pray
ing for Mr. E. L. Smith, of
Hood River, to become a candi
date for governor until he has re
luctantlv consented to become
martyr to the cause of good gov
ernment and allow his name to
We esteem Mr. mitn as an
honorable gentleman and regret
to feel compelled to say these
things, but this is a republican
state and should have a republi
can governor. We do not be

political rings which have

Chamberlain for governor. We
do not believe he can easily be
beaten by any republican whom
the people themselves select for
the race. But the bosses must

There will be ten initiative
petitions, constitutional amend
ments and referendum petition to
be voted on at the June election.
Through the failure of several to
secure the necessary number of
signatures, there will be no two
conflicting measures, as has been
feared would be the case.
Those measures that have re
ceived the required number of
signatures are as follows:
The $1,000,000 appropriation
bill passed by the legislature and
held up by referendum petitions.

by the Liquordealers' Association

local option law, aud .which prac

Old-timers will learn with re
gret that Jacob Frantz, who for
years was a freighter between
Corvallis and Yaquina bay in the
days before the railroad, has be
csme totally blind as the result
of an unsuccessful operation on
his eyes. The Telegram tells the
story as follows:
Tacob Frantz, an old soldier
and well-known resident, of To
ledo, Lincoln county,', has just
been totally deprived of his sight
through an unsuccessful opera
tion lor "cataract" at a local hos
pital. Frantz, who served in the
Forty-sixth Ohio nfantry for a
good portion ot the war, was
wounded twice, and has been
given a $i2-a-month pension
He is 75 years old, and this pen
sion is about all the income he
has to maintain him. He was
asked today if he would go to the
poor farm of Lincoln county.
"No, sir," he cried emphatic
ally, "I'll put a bullet through
mv brain first."
He. could have his pension in
creased were be to swear that his
blindness is a result of service in
the army, but this he will not do
as he cannot conscientiously
He is a bachelor and for' nearly
40 years nas been engaged in

county. For many years h
freighted from Corvallis to Ya

"When the surgeons removed
the cataract from my eye
caught a glimpse of the blue sky
and I felt happy," he said, "but
next morning all was dark and
the surgeons admitted that the
operation was a failure. I have
no tault to find with them, how
ever, as thev did all they . could
Dr. v. J. Urown says that 95
out ot 100 sucn operations are
successful, and he attributes the
failure of this to the condition
ot Franz's blood, which was sus
ceotible to icflammation.
Pat Crowe Acquitted.
Omaha, Feb. 16. The jury in
the trial of Pat Crowe, charged
vs-ith the robbery of Edwxrd
Cudahy, the Omaha picker, of
$25,000 in "connection with the
kidnaping of the latters' son five
years ago, this atternoon, after
15 hours' deliberation, brought
in a verdict of not guiltv.
The kidnaping of Eddie Cud
ahy, December 19, 1900, and his
release upon the payment by his
father of $25,000 ransom created
a great sensation, and the search
for the kidnapers was stimulated
at the time by the offer of a re
ward of $50,000 by Mr. Cudahy.
It was the belief of authorities
that Crowe and James Callahan
were the guilty parties, but no
trace of them could be found un
til about a year ago, when Calla
han was arrested. He was identi
fied by young Cudahy as one of
his captors, but was released on
trial, as it could not be shown
that he received any of the
money and there was at that
time no law making the kidnap
ing ot a person over 10 years ot
age a ciime.
