The evidence of the utter in
sincerity of the leading demo
crats in congress who have been
vehemently declaring that they
stand with the President gains
strength every day. Towne, re
presentative from New York,
made a set speech in the House
of Representatives, a few days
ago, in which he most bitterly
assailed the President.
Now, in all candor, why are
these assaults, first in the senate,
now in the house, made upon
Roosevelt? Has he changed
front on any question? Has he
flunked, turned heel and run
from the field in any contest?
Not foi a minute. When he tired
of waiting for the railway rate
bill to pass the senate while the
democrats played politics, he
brought the members of his own
party into line and the bill was
passed, and passed, too, if we
might believe the statement of
democratic senators, with just
the provisions it would have con
tained had democratic votes been
necessary to its passage. Of
course the democratic leaders
have been angered at the Pres
ident. He broke in on their
game, scattered their cards,
overturned their tables and gave
the game to his own party.
Has the President changed
front? Are not the people, the
American people, standing with
him? Is it not true that the op
position to the President is made
by the great trusts, corporations,
and the leaders of the democratic
But the people stand with the
President. Republicans do so
because he is a faithful exponent
of republican doctrines. Demo
crats do so because they accept
and believe in those doctrines
and their own party gives them
no leader who is an earnest, safe
exponent of them. Denouncing
Trusts, and Corporations and
Plutocracy, the democratic lead
ers selected a candidate for the
presidency who was the personi
fication of all these. They failed
to deceive all democrats. Thou
sands of them voted for Roose
velt because he was a safe ex
ponent of things they believed
and Parker was not-
The people and the President
are at one tod The leaders of
the domocratic party, the party
press, and the self-seekers of the
party, have, until lately, declar
ed their stand with the Presi
dent. Now, to stand with him
is partisanship, and they are cry
ing for non-partnership. No re
publicans and not nearly all
democrats are deceived by this.
Partisanship of the democratic
sort is not what they desire.
They still believe in and accept
the sort the President stands for.
To advance the right, ori any
line of human action men must
be partisans. The Founder of
Christianity said, "Whoever is
not for me is against me." Re
publicans are for republican
principles and policies and are
not ashamed to be known as re
publican partisans. Men who
whohold these principles have
been named for office, from erov-
ernordown. They are receiving
the earnest support of all repub
licans and will continue . to re
ceive it until the polls close June
4th and the whole country is in
formed that Oregon really is a
republican state and that Benton
county, without a break lin the
ticket, is listed with the republi
can counties of the state which
is her proper place.
A WISE RESOLVE.
In our last issue we published
a letter from an Alsea corres
pondent that states a fact which
republicans should bear in mind.
Broadly stated it is this: Actuated
by non-partisan . sentiments, re
publicans have contributed to the
aid and support of the most self
ish, offensive and contemptible
It is selfish in that it cares lit
tle or nothing for thej interests of
the whole people -the tax
payers of the county if only
it may advance its own self-interest.
It is offensive to those
citizens, both republicans and
democrats who honestly deplore
and deprecate petty partisan
ship. It is contemptible as all
selfish and petty things are in
the estimation of really liberal
That republicans are largely
responsible for this, condition is
quite apparent This is a repub
lican county. Not one democrat
can be elected i;o office in the
county except by the aid of re
publican votes. Yet our county
judge, sheriff, clerk and treas
urer are democrats and we have
the sort of partisanship our cor
If all those offices were filled
by republicans, partisanship
might not be wholly obliterated,
but we are absolutely sure it
would be minimized and would
cease to be selfish and contemptible.
Possibly if the identical county
offices were kept in the hands of
the same men for periods of six
to ten years we might witness a
return of such partisanship, but
republicans believe in rotation in
office, so it could not become an
incident of republican adminis
The forest complained that it
had magnanimously furnished
the axe with a helve, upon which
the axe started to destroy the
forest. Republicans, in their
support of democrats, have been
just as silly and should expect to
see democratic partisanship
"flourish as a green bay tree."
But the evidences are constant
ly accumulating that republicans
see the folly of carrying non
parisan sentiments to the polls.
They will be earnest republican
partisans until the polls are
closed, and non-partisan if the
occasion arises afterward. It
will not arise for every county
office will be in the hands of a
republican. Our Alsea friend,
and all who have borne him com
pany, will no longer turn the
VOTE IT STRAIGHT.
The whole republican ticket
vote it straight, It's a rattling
good ticket of able and honorable
men, nominated by the republi
cans at the primaries April 20
and will be ratified by ballot
June 4. Every republican in
Benton county had a voice in
nominating the candidates, or
could have had if he didn't, and
for this reason i3 duty bound to
stand by the ticket from first to
last. Let every republican vote
his ticket straight and he will
elect every man on it.
Is there" any reason why it
should not be voted straight?
Compare the candidates, man for
man, of the republican and
democratic nominees for office in
old Benton and if the democratic
timber proves any better or
stronger than that put in the
field by republicans, we'll shut
up. But you've got to prove it.

- Mr. Editor: CorvaPis is one of the
oldest cities in the valley. She might
have been its Capital City, but we let
that chance slip. Shall w e remain as we
have been in the past, and grow and
enlarge only as it is forced upon us?
Should we not rather begin to reach out,
and induce to growth, than take it easy?
What inducements are before one to
come to an apparently finished town ?
Look at the shacks on our streets and
in many localities, old, uninviting and
many repulsive to the . lowest order of
taste and to the penniless purse. Where
is a new building with few exceptions
that show marked enterprise, taste or
architecture? The man who builds a
home simply to save money without in
ducing others to improve upon his, has
set a poor example to others. The man
who builds either a residence or business
house in advance of his neighbor hoping
thereby to induce capital, intelligence
and volume of business and looks for his
pay from the increasing value of his
buildings, is really the business man
and the progressive element in his town
or city. What have we in a city that has
come to as without an effort? True we
have a college. It came to us by acci
dent. Are we not looking to its influence
to make us grow ? What are we, as a
city, doing to make it, its influence and
patronage grow ? To the passerby or to
the parent anxious to place his children
in the most intelligent society and en
vironments, we can furnish old unsight
ly buildings, rattling sidewalks, weedy
and high grass streets and fine horses and
cows tied here and there, and if not di
lapidation in many places, at least not
so inviting as in many less pretentious
places. Are we not depending almost
entirely on the college and what we get
from it for our income? What a larga
territory of fine farming and grazing
land are behind ns, ready to enlarge
along e?ery line as soon as we offer en

fathers and citizens to take some steps
along other lines? By this time there
ought to be three or four park,-, tastily
laid out, planted with trees and raie
shrub and flowers and neatly kept
where the weary busiDe-s people and
pent up cnildren could meet and stroll
and lounge and mingle in social and
recreating exercise. Where is a lot in
this city near the center that can be
bought for that purpose not without
heavy outlay, when it might have been

Let the city purchase several for

A Delightful Affair.
Is Disease a Crime ?
Not very Jons &3o, popular magazine
published an editorial article in which
the writer asserted, in substance, that ail
disease should be res.irded as criminal.
Certain it is, that much of the sickness
and suffering of mankind is due to the
violation of certain of Nature's laws.
But to say that all sickness should be
regarded as criminal, must appeal to
every reasonable individual as radically
It would ro harsh, unsympathetic,
cruel, yes criminal, to condemn the poor,
weak, over-worked housewife who sinks
under the heavy load of household cares
and burdens, and suffers from weak
nesses, various displacements of pelvic
organs and other derangements peculiar
to her sex.
Frequent bearing of children, with its ex
acting demands upon the system, coupled
with the care, worry and labor of rearing' a
larso family. Is often the cause of weak
nesses, derangements and debility which are
aperavated by the many household cares,
and the hard, and never-ending work which
the mother is called upon to perform. Dr.
Pierce, tha maker of that world-famed rem
edy for woman's peculiar weaknesses and
Ills Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription says
that one of the greatest obstacles to the euro
of this class of maladies is the fact that the
poor, over-worked housowife can not get the
needed rest from her many household cares
and labor to enable her to secure from the
use of his Prescription " Its full benefits. It
is a matter of frequent experience, ho says,
in bis extensive practice In these cases, to
meet with those in which his treatment fails
by reason of tho patient's inability to abstain
from hard work long enough to be cured.
With those suffering from prolapsus, ante
version and retroversion of the uterus or
othor displacement of the womanly organs,
it is very necessary that, in addition to tak
ing his "Favorite Prescription " they abstain
from being very much, or for long periods, on
their feet. All heavy lifting or straining of
any kind should also be avoided. As much
out-door air as possible with moderate, light
exercise Is also very Important Let the
Jtatient observe these rules and the "Favor
to Prescription " will do the rest.
