Few, will deny that aside from
the construction" of the Panama
canal the irrigation project is the
- greatest undertaken by our gov
ernment within the. last forty
years.. The irrigation or reclam-
" ation fund amounts to 28 million
; dollars and provision is made for
its increase at the rate of 4 mil

This "plant" has not been lo

that others than Chinese have

the criminals might be for a

RepubUcan Candidate for United States Senator.
CHAMPION OF STATEMENT ONE.
Jonathan Bourne, Jr., candidate before the Republican primaries for the nomi
nation of United States Senaior in Congress, for the long term commencing Ma-ch
4, 1907, was born in New Bedford, Mass , February 23, 1855; was a member of the
i-lasscf 1877 at Harvard University; came to Portland May 16, 1878; waa a Republi
can member of the Oregon Legislature in the session of 1885 and the extra session
of 188(5; was one of Oregon's delegates to the Republican National Convention of
1888 and Oregon's member ot the Republican National Committee from 1888 Jo 1892,
and a delegate to tue Republican National Convention of 1892; and was elected as
a Mitchell Republican to the Oregon Legislature iu 189t.
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 own money in the acquisition and develop
ment of Oregon mines.
While Mr. Bourne has had his residence and main office at Portland since
1878, he has had another office at New Bedford, Mass., and has carried on the busi
ness of his father's estate -since 1389, which makes him familiar with many of the
large interests and leading men iu the East. These qualifications, in conjunction
with his tremendous energy, originality, executive ability and experience in busi
ness and political affairs pre-eminently qualify him for making an aDle and influ
ential Senator for the state of Oregon.
Mr. Bourne has always favored extending the direct power of the people over
their government as tar 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 Xominations Leagtie, and holds the same position
with the People's Power League at this time. In all these movements he has oeen
one of the few to guarantee the necessary expenses of preparing and proposing
their measures to the people.
He says that the choice of United States Senator should be by direct vote of
the people and that the Legislature should be compelled to elect the man the
people select. To accomplish this result, he is championing Statement No. 1 of the
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 :
"If I am nominated and elected I will, during my term of
Am. nding National Constitution for People's Election of
United States Senators.
