THE RIGHT MAN.
"All roads lead to London," and all
Indications for the coming Juno elec
tions point to the nomination and tri
umphant success at the polls of Hon. C.
W. Fulton for governor of this state.
All Western Oregon has grown cnthUBl
ostlo at the mention of his name; the
counties In the south have already
shown how welcome his selection will
be; and In Portland, a fact remarkable
as ai display by that clannish city in
favor of Sj non-resident, Mr. Fulton
seems to be ti e unanimous choice of
the Multnomah republicans. Of his own
city and county it is unnecessary to
speak. The vote he would receive, even
from his political opponents, in Clat
op, would be far more than a compli
mentary tribute. It would amount to a
universal desire to show the balance of
the state how eager our residents are
to put to the test the brilliant powen
of the morit popular man among us.
How Mr. Fulton has been able to be
come a gubernatorial possibility, Is a
quastlon that may be answered very
simply. The profession of a lawyer If
above all "others the business thnt
brings out before public audiences the
)est and worst sides of a man's Intelli
gence, and which stamps him fori all
time in the public mind aB powerful or
mediocre In ability. There are man)
clever advocates In Oregon, and ol
course many of the most excellent llv
md work In the city of Portland. Mr.
Fulton's place among members of the
Oregon bar Is well known. He stnndf
on the top rung of the ladder, a position
reached after years of patient study and
nlded by an amount of personal magnet
ism that Is not possessed by many men.
A very gratifying and spontaneous trib
ute to his value In this direction oc
curred a couple of months ago In one
of the most Important cases ever heard
by the bench In this state the trial of
the Puget Bound smugglers. Five of
the most prominent lawyers In Port
land, Inc'udlng an ex-govemor, unani
mously settled on Mr. Fulton to lead
them In the case for the defense.
Two years ago Oregon most unfortun
ately elected to the position of governor
an Individual who, while we believe he
has been sincere in his gyrations, has
brought us Into disrepute and made us
thrt butt for ridicule, and almost shame,
from every other state In the union.
The name of Oregon has become a by
word and the name of Pennoyer a
laughlng-itock for the rest of the coun
try to Jeer at. It Is the duty of every
man and organization In our borders to
place In the governor's chair at the
coming election a cttUen whose record
and whose every act speak of good
common sense, high ability, and a full
knowledge of the demands of the high
office to which he Is elected a cltlien
whose friends have been made, not by
catch-penny VopuitMik vt tiifl pesscsivn
. , . . .. ,. .,. I
of wealth, but by the d eel re to serve
and recognize a conservative, honorablel
man with the courage of his own con
victions. Such a man, and only such a
man, will be able to blot out the stain
of Pennoyerlsm, and give Oregon lis old
placo again among tho stale. Such a
man is C. W. Fulton.
"The Senator from Clatsop" bus !.-
oome the man of the hour.
Tho mmarkabla powt.-r of Kossuth
over tho imagination of the ix-ople with
whom: he was associated, Is seen In the
Interest his death excites. His depar
ture visibly shakes the Austro-IIungarl
an empire-kingdom. Flags of mourning
for the lost leader are forbidden In
Vienna. In Hungary the people mourn
the man most venerated. His unfalter
ing adherence to the principles he
avowed; his Impracticable but Invinci
ble resentment toward the powers that
prevailed against him; his refusal to
forgive of be forgiven, while his coun
try failed to be free; his tenacity In
relying upon his own resources, refusing
gifts, repulsing flatteries, accepting pov
erty gave him a dignity that was
unique. Deak bargained with imperial-
Ism to gain concessions for Hungnry, as
Parnell obstructed parliament to assert
the rights of Ireland and advance her
Interests; but Kossuth demanded abso
lute Independence for the Hungarian
nation, and all less than that he de
splsed. This was like the parade that
was magnificent, but not war; It was
exalted, but not politic; the poetry of
state affairs, hut not statecraft.
Lord Rosebery ought to have offered
Mr. Labouchere a peerage, and thereby
have got rid of ai vexatious adversary,
It Is not by any means Improbable that
he would have accepted It, cynically re
marking that the most practical way of
reforming the lords would be for him to
take his place among them.
Mr. Hewitt's capital epigram about
"oolnlng a vacuum" Is one of the things
that will stick. It has already fastened
Itself In the popular mind and memory,
and It Is bound to stay there because of
the truth which It epitomizes.
Senators Voorhees and Vest are tak
ing Mr. Cleveland's famous Providence
declaration that reciprocity Is a repub
lican tribute to democratic tariff reform
very seriously Indeed.

A Portland Detective's Plan for Oiling
Detective Crlflln. of Portland, who r
somewhat of n, Joker, says ycMer.my
aiiiiiwnii'iit fur the spectators in tlir-,

the prisoners was a lull. ruW-uoniHl man
from Yamhill, arrested for .IrunKewess.
wh threatened to continue ni spn-e

Griffin thought the man had better go
home and spend his hard-earned money
for the benefit, of his family. But per
suasion hod no effect on the fellow, and
tho detective resorted to another plan
to accomplish his reformation. Sum
moning him Into the office of the depu
ty district atlfrney, he had him seated
before the transmitter of the telepnone,
which is worked on a pivot. Turning
the Instrument toward him, he rang the
bell and Informed him that bis picture
had been taken by electricity In every
city In the country and a repetition of
the offense meant arrest everywhere.
"18 that so?" grasped the man from
Yamhill. "Well," he added, resignedly,
"I will go home and never drink again."
All which the spectators laughed im
moderately. The man from Yamhill,
however, suspected no trick, and was
true to his promise. When last seen by
Detective Griffin, he was boarding a
West Side train for Yamhill and repeat
ing to a friend his promise to abstain
