WE CALLED THE BLUFF."
T?m and asrain it has been
nfoH nut. in these columns that
Germany must look to the United
Srofoa for certain commodities
which were an absolute necessity
with her people. True enough,
ail hpr bluster about what would
hoHonetous in the way of re
taliation if we did not favor
Germany's schemes along recip-
rrihv and favored nation lines
amounted to naught. The matter
i ;vw at rest between the
Fatherland and Yankeeland and
will Rleen until such time as Ger
many thinks she has another op
portunity. Speaking of this
matter, the Washington Post
Is it any wonder that Congress
called the bluff and that the
bluffer laid down his cards as
gracefully as possible? No doubt
it contributes to international ex
citcment to have these little
flurries every now and then. It
furnishes an opportunity for
statesmen to look owlish, for
m-ffi fn cnnnt". an d for Govern
ment organs to indulge in more
or less delectable folderol. But
it doesn't pay a cent at any stage
of the oroceedmgs.
The simple truth of the matter
is that we are running this coun
trv to suit ourselves, for our own
profit and advantage, while all
the rest are doing precisely the
same thing. There's about as
much sentiment in it as in the
differential calculus, and it is
about as easy to bluff this coun
try as it would be to transport
fViP Pvramid of Cheorjs in a
Brooklin baby carriage. Ger
manv can try it again, of course,
and why not? Really high-class
entertainment is always welcome.
SENATOR FULTON BUSY.
In arguing before the com
merce committee of the Sena te
for the Oregon rivers and harbor
work this year, Senator Fulton
produced figures proving that
the Government has spent $70,
000,030 in such work in Maine,
New Hampshire, Vermont, Mass
achusetts, Connecticut, Rhode
Island, New York, Pennsylva
nia, New Jersey, Maryland and
Delaware, with a total area of
about 175,000 square miles. He
also showed the committee that
every large improvement pro
ject under way was provided for
on the continuing contract basis,
save that on the Columbia river.
Assurance is given that the
Senate will b 3 favorably dis
posed toward the Oregon work,
and appreciates the urgency of
continuing it, but the real fight
is in the House, where the West
ern membership is very small.
Chairman Burton of the Rivers
and Harbors committee, in the
Hons?, has declared that he
will oppose any other improve
ni3nt project being put on the
continuing contract basis, and
while he expresses appreciation
of the need of work in Oregon,
he is giving little assurance that
he will countenance an appro
priation for continuing the
work this year.
of toxie private claims is illus
trit.ed in the sealers bill, which
Senator Fulton has put through
the senate. This bill is to recoup
sealers flying the American flag,
who lost their vessels before the
Bering sea arbitration, and at a I
time when America held to the
privilege of capturing sealers on
the open sea near tin breeding
islands. After the arbitration,
and it was decided that America
did not have theright to patrol
the high seas near, the islands,
all British sealers whose vessels
had been captured,. were paid by
his .,; Government promptly.
Russia had been -exercising the
same patrpi 'power, pursuant to
which she: tciptured American
sealers, and:? this Government
promptly demanded of her? full
payment of the losses. Bit the
American sealers captured by
Americans themselves have not
been paid yet. ,

This vear. on account of the
new primary law being in effect
and the additional fact that Cor
vallis has a population of more
than 2,ooo goodly souls, we shall
put to a test the above mentioned
law by holding a primary election
within the city.
The law reads that the primary
election shall be held on the 30th
day preceding the- regular muni
cipal election. The date of reg
ular municipal elections for this
city is set by charter to occur on
the thud Monday in May, the
2ist of that month. Therefore,
the city primary election will be
held on the 21st of April. It will
be necessary for condidates to file
their petitions and the election is
such as to put it on party lines.
Law Held Good.
In the circuit court for Linn
countv, Monday afternoon, sev
eral local option cases were de
cided by Judge George H. Bur
nett, who held that incorporated
cities are not exempted from the
local option law.
At the last term of couTt the
case against B. Hansard, of Leb
anon, was tried on a stipulated
statement of facts. It was also
stipulated that, upon the issue ot
the case, another, against JUike
Tennines. was to be decided.
Judge Burnett held that the at
tack on the election would not
lie: that the local ODtion law had
superseded the 1 Lebanon city
charters granted 1099, and was in
force in Lebanon where the local
option vote had carried.
Hansard appeared tor sentence
and Jennings, withdrawing his
plea of not guilty filed four
months ap-o. pleaded suiltv.
Judge Burnett exacted a promise
from the men that tney would
hereafter refrain from violating
the law, and he assessed the min
imum fine $50 eH.

WITH ECKHATDFSt IDEALS
MAKES WEAK WOMEN STRONQ
AND SICK WOMEN WELL.
Forty years ago, Dr. Pierce searched
Nature's laboratory for a remedy with
.which to supplant the ignorant and vi
cious methods of treatment, with alco
holic stimulants, then in vogue, and still
too commonly prescribed and advised for
woman's peculiar ailments.
Nature abounds with most efficient rem
edies, and in Lady's Slipper root, Black
Cohosh root. Unicorn root. Blue Cohosh
root and Golden Seal root, Dr. Pierce
found medicinal properties, which when
extracted and preserved bv the uso of
chemically pure glycerine, tave proven
most potent in making weak women
strong and sick women well. It contains
no alcohol; is not a "patent medicine,"
nor a secret one either.
"I was suffering with nervous headache,
pains in the back and dizziness, so that at
times I had to lie down for hours before I
could raise my head." writes Mrs. Mary M.
Thomas, of 337 Winston Street, Los Angeles.

vorite Prescript ion." however, I was so pleased
with the results that 1 kept on taking it until
I was restored to health and strength. I
shall never be without this great medicine.

One of the principal uses of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription is the preparation
of prospective mothers for the time of
trial and danger that comes when a child
is born. The "Prescription" is strength
ening and Invigorating and lessons pain
and danger. It insures the perfect well
beinsr and the perfect health of both
mother and child. Every woman should
know these things before she really needs
to know them. There are many things in
Dr. Pierce's Common Sense Medical Ad
viser, that every woman ought to know.

Republican Candidate for United States Senator.
CHAMPION OF STATEMENT ONE.
Jonathan Bourne, Jr., candidate before the Republican primaries for the nomi
nation of United States Senator in Congress, for the long term commencing March
4, 1907, was born in New Bedford, Mass., February 23, 1855; was a member of the
class of 1877 at Harvard University; came to Portland May 16, 1878; was a Republi
can member of the Oregon Legislature in the session of 1885 and the extra session
of 1886; was one of Oregon's delegates to
1888 and Oregon s member ot the Republican National Committee trom 1H8 to lewz.
and a delegate to the Republican National Convention of 1892; and was elected as
a Mitchell Republican to the Oregon Legislature in 1896.
Mr. Bourne has been more prominently identified with the development of the
mineral resources of Oregon than any other man in the state, having expended in
the last 20 years over $1,000,000 of his wn money in the acquisition and develop
ment ef Oregon mines.
Whfle Mr. Bourne has had his residence and main office at Portland since
1878, he has had another office at New
nese of his father's estate since 1389. which
large interests and leading men in the East. These qualifications, in conjunction
with his tremendous energy, originality,
ness and political af airs pre-eminently qualify him lor making an aDie and innn
ential Senator for the state of Oregon.
Mr. Bourne has always favored extending the direct power of the people over
their government as far as possible. He was one of the leading spirits in the
Initiative and Referendum movement from 1896 until it was approved by the
voters at the June election in 1902. In 1904 he was a member of the executive
committee of the Direct Primary Nominations League, and holds the same position
with the People's Power League at this time. In all these movements he hat been
one of the few to guarantee -the necessary expenses of preparing and proposing
their measures to the people.
He eays that the choice of United States Senator should be by direct vote oi
the people, and that the Legislature should be compelled to elect the man the
people select. To accomplish this result,
primary election law as the only method by which public opinion may be crystal
lized and made effective upon the Legislature.
In his petition for nomination he 'says: J ,

JOYS OF COUNTRY CIRCUS.
Shows Need Funny Old Clown to Give
Them Interest, Says One Who
People try to lay the blame of
the modern, circus' failure to in
terest them on the three rmgs.
They say so many things to watch
at once keeps them from being in
terested in any one act. They
can't give it the attention it de
serves. But I'll tell you what's
wrong, says Eugene Wood, in Mc
Clure's Magazine. There isn't
any funny old clown, a particular
one, to give it human interest. It
is all too splendid, too magnifi
cent, too far beyond us. We want
to hear somebody talk foolish and
human once, in awhile.
They pretended that the ttent
was too big. for the clown to be
heard, but I take notice it wasn't
too big for the fellow to get up and
declaim: "The puffawmance ees
not yait hawf ovah. The jaintle
inanly agents will now pawss
around the ring with tickets faw
the concert." I used to hate that
man. When he said the perform
ance was not yet half over, he lied
like a dog, consarn his picture!
He knew it, and we knew that
there were only a few more acts
to come. We wanted the show to
go on and on, and always to be
just as exciting as at the very
first, and it wouldn't! We had got
to the point where we couldn't be
interested in anything any more.
We were as little ones unable to
prop their eyelids open and yet
quarreling with bed. We were
surfeited, but not satisfied. We
sat there and pouted because
there wasn't any more, and1 yet
we couldn't but yawn at the act
before us. We were mad at our
selves, and mad at everybody
else. We clambered down the
rattling bed slat seats, sour and
sullen. We didn't want to look at
the animals; we didn't want to do
this, and we didn't want to do
that. We whined and snarled and
wriggled and- shook ourselves
with temper, and we got a good
hard slap, side of the head, right
before everybody, and then we
yelled as if we were being killed
"Now, mister, if I ever take you
any place again, you'll know it.
I'd be ashamed of myself if I was
you! Hush up! Hush up, I tell
you. Now, you mark. You're
never going, to the show again.
Do you hear me? Never. I mean
it, you're never going again." 7
