HUNTING A SENATOR.
The conservative leaders of the
democratic party appear to be
-greatly parturbed concerning
ihe future of their party. Bryan
dominated it lor a long time, but
Bryanism drove a large number
of conservative democrats into
the republican camp. Twice
dil3:i'i hilths democratic
v-column to defeat. Then, by a
mighty effort a conservative,
-Judge Parker, was chosen to
lead the party to victory. But
-so thoroughly had it been Bryan
ized and so widely discredited,
.and so popular was the repub
lican nominee, that Mr. Parker
went down in one of the most
limmiliating defeats ever suffered
by the party.
Now W. R. Hearst looms large
!ln the democratic horizon. Truly
he "out Herods Herod". If the
party could not endure Bryanism
it is not possible that it can sur
vive an acute attack of Hearst
ism. These disturbed leaders clearly
.-.see that neither Bryan nor
Hearst can lead the party to
-victory two years hence. But
vwhocan? They see no democrat
"North nor West who may do so,
and now they turn to the South.
.Judge Parker has told the south
ern demacrats that the time has
-cone when they must again
assume the leadership of the
zparty if it is to be saved from utter
Why not? If the halcyon days
-of old the South gave the party
leaders who led it to victory and
it can and should do so now

: South has not given the party a

iluence in its councils,., wails the
It is true. For long the South
rrave the democratic party its
;Tnost able leaders; but there came
a time when the South had no
issue that appealed to her, and
her leaders stood before the
:nation discredited, dethroned.
Instinctively, yet agrainst the
finer instinct of her best men,
she has followed the democratic
party in solid column. For forty
years the South has been sitting
amid the cold ashes of her dead
past. In the mighty progress
and development of the nation
she has borne small part and
reaped comparatively little bene
fit. The race problem rests
upon her as a fearful incubus
Sometime she will solve that to
her satisfaction. That done she
will possibly pe able to see that
3ier solidarity for the democratic
party is, and for many years
has been highly detrimental to
her progress. When she sees
this and divides on party lines as
the rest of the country does, she

prosrress: she will be heard again

-will aeain srive leaders to the
political parties of the country-
In the meanwhile who shall lead
the democratic party in the next
national contest? Of the two
we believe Bryan a stronger and
safer man than Hearst. It
soems certain, however, that the
conservative democrats of the
North cannot be reconciled to the
leadership of either. After all
it is of no great moment who is
.selected to be the democratic
r standard bearer. There's little
doubt the republican party will
present a candidate who will
satisfy conservative and patri
otic men of all parties and a
possibility he will write his name
""Theodore R, ne:."
GRAND JURY INVESTIGATES.
To convince the people of any
-community that they are sliding
into perdition by damning them
is an uphili proposition. There
is little gained by attacking their
character or that of their neigh
bors. We, who have lived here
for many years are the better
judges of conditions in Corvallis
than any stranger can be, how
ever observing the unknown may
True religion is, or should be,
charitable. If it be not this,
then of what worth is it? We
compare most favorably with any
other town of our size from a
moral standpoint, and yet, dur
ing the past week or two Rev.
Miller, the evangelist, is credit
ed with making some very strong
accusations against some of our
citizens. As a result of these
charges the gentleman was sum
moned to appear before the
grand jury last Monday. What
ever occurred at this time is, of
course, unknown to us, but if he
made the accusations credited
him there will likely be some
developments ere long, for the
seriousness of the charges, if he
substantiated them, was such
that the grand jury could not
FOB MUTUAL BENEFIT.
A Movement Looking to the Or
ganization of a Promotion.
The recent visit of the party
of excursionists from the state of
Washington, headed by Governor
Mead, to California, following as
it did a similar excursion from
Oregon headed by Governor
Chamberlain, shows conclusively
that the idea of a union ot the
Pacific States is nearer a consum
mation than many people sup
pose. It has been the idea of
Mr. Rnfus P. Jennings, chair
man of the California Promotion
Committee, for some years that
an organization for the commer
cial and indastrial co-operation
of tne six Pacific coast states and
the territory of Arizona, formed
on the lines of the Californian
Promotion Committee, would
tend tot brings about broader de
velopment of the, coast region,
and a wider recognition cointner-
ciaiiy ana politically or me
wondertul resources of this part of
the United btates.
What has been accomplished
by the California Promotion Com
mittee for Ca'-iloruia in the wa
of publicity and development
can be done even on a broader
scale for the entire coast region
if the six slates and the territory
of Arizona shall join hands
in furtherance of this great work.
Naturally the first requisite for
such a union would be the com
plete organization ot each state
under the influence of a central
organization, which central body
would be represented in a body
composed of representatives from
each of the states of Washington,
Oregon, California, Idaho,
Nevada and Utah and the terri
tory of Arizo'na.
What could bs accomplished by
such a combined effort on the
part of all the interests involved
on the Jfacihc slope is almost
beyond conputation. It will
mean thegreatest commeicial and
industrial power in the whole
country; it would mean a politi
cal force that would compel
recognition at the hands of the
congress and of the government
dep utiueuts; ic would mean the
upbuilding of a Dart of the
United State?, the resources of
which are beyond the compiehen-

Charge to Jury.
Tbe instructions of Judge L.
T. Harris to the jury in the case
of James L. Lewis vs. Spencer
Bicknell was of interest as it
places a matter of law in a new
light. In the minds of many of
our citizens not versed in law
it has been the presumption that
it was criminal for a man to set
a gun. Ihis appears to have
been a mistaken idea-
According to what we were
informed, Judge Harris instruct
ed the jury to the effect that
while a man had no right to set a
gun in .the open on his own or
any other persons place, he had
a right under certain conditions
to set one in his house. With
out special p-ivilege anyone
entering the house would be
guilty of trespass.
The case referred to occupied the
court the greater part of three
days. Mr. Lewis was represent
ed by Attorneys W. S. McFadden
andE. R. Bryson of this city,
while the defendant retained
Weatherford& Wyatt.of Albany,
and J. F. Yates, of this city, to
defend him. The case was a suit
for damages as the result of a
gunshot wound received by Mr.
Lewis nearly a year ago when
the latter, m the capacity of a
real estate agent, was showing a
prospective buyer the Bicknell
farm. In showing the place Mr,
Lewis decided to provide the
prospective buyer an interior
view of the house and in effect
ing an entrance the real estate
dealer received a charge of shot
from a gopher gun in his leg.

THE EASTERN VIEV.
A Letter From Washiugton, D.
C, Which is of Interest, Politi
cally is as Follows:
National attention is turning
to Oregon's political contest,
which is to be the advauce guard
of the next general election.
Tais week Oregon was much
discussed. The tariff revision
sentiment of the East believe
that the "standpatters" are hurt
ing the republican party, and
where not laboring with this con
viction, and using the argumeut
"o coerce promise of -onie form ol
revision. Delay in enacting railway-rate
legislation has been
seized upori as another token of s
squall. Philippine tariff bills,
yet pending, with little promise
of becoming law, are also seized
upon as another discontent omen
in the party.
With various arguments prt
and con, a real interest is being
generated, Oregon, being first, is
first in point of interest, chron
ologically at least. Party leaders
everywhere in the East are ask
ing if there is prospect of Oregon
turning. They grasp at every
thing or an intelligent stamp
bearing on this question, republi
cans do not veil their uneasiness.
They note that a democrat is gov
ernor, a democrat maycr of ti e
principle city and a democrat has
beert appointed senator. If the
democrat should be returned to
(he seuatt by popular vote, and
one or two congressmen of the
same fauh were sent on, conster
nation would not indicate the feel
ing here. In view of these bare
possibilities, republican leaders
are eager to show wherein Ore
gon has eveay thing to gain by
keeping in the party ranks of the
past. Pains are taken to show
how Oregon, with a democratic
delegation, would be placed in
the ranks of the southern states
which can accomplish nothing
more in the national legislature
than look after lc-cal affairs.

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 the Republican National Convention of
1888 and Oregon's member ot the Republican National Committee from 1888 lo 1892,
and a delegate to t'ue Republican Natioual Convention of 1892; and was elected aa
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 en n money in the acquisition and develop
ment of Oregon mines.
While Mr. Bourne has had his residence and main office at Portland Bince
1878, he has had another office at New Bedford, Mass., and has carried on the busi
ness of his father's estate since 1S89, which makes him familiar with many of the
large interests and leading men in 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 aole 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 Nominations League, and holds the same position
with the People's Power League at this time. In all these movements he baa been
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 uominated and elected I will, daring my term of
