In a recent diipa'.ch to the Port

known politically - and socially In
this section, la quoted with regard' to
the action of the Republican central
committee of Umatilla county. The
Jispatch, taken from the Journal,
says: . .
Pendleton, Or., June 18. -The meet
ing of the Republican central com
mittee of this county Ift-t, Tuesday
and the selecting of delegates to
attend the proposed state assembly
at Portland next month has aroused
he indignation of a great number of
citizens who have beeni prominently
identified with, the Republican party
for a number of years. Judge Ste
phen A. Lowell, . one : of the best
kno-"i Republicans in eastern Ore
50a, is especially aroused at this op
en endorsement of the machine
method of poliilk-s, and has made the
"It i-3 reported that a portion of
;ie Republican central committee of
this county, 18 out of 40, assembled
t the court house on Tuesday and
assumed to place the Republican par
ty here in the attitude of favoring
the proposed state assembly by the
appointment of delegates thereto.
For mysalf, and I have good reason
;o believe that I speak the sentiments
on this question of the great major
ity of the rank and file of tha party
throughout the county, I desire to
enter a protest against the procedure.
I am a Lincoln Republican, not an

was born of a union between the
Bourbon and. the Cossack, the men
who imagine that they embody all
the wisdom and those' who Jive to
destroy - ..The-N first are possessed of
the idea, that the people are incap
able of self-government, and the
last would emasculate the direct
primary because they cannot, manlp--
ularte it. I am uttei-jy opposed to any
assembly to be hell before the date
of the primary election, and ilesire to
go oni record as repudiating the ac
tion -of this committee, and Its atti
tude ought to be resented by every
true Republican. 1

"We fought for years for relief
from the corruption and disgrace of
the old convention, system, and the
direct primary law was enacted.
Thus far It has served to purpose
well. Some mistakes have beea made
under it, of course, as there .will 'be
under any system, but it has elimi

SCORE OF 7 TO 6 WON BY THE
adversaries, while the Invincibles
with equal confidence assert that
they will make the Haydlggers look
like sixteen cents.
The Twilight League drew a big
crowd Thursday night, when the Hill
side Haydiggers met and defeated ;
the invincible aggregation known as
the Brooklyn TroUeydodgers. The
score, after the smoke of battle
cleared away, was 7 to 5 la favor
of the Diggers.
The line-up for the two Impregn
able formations ,wa as follows:, -The,
Brooklyn- TroUeydogens: A Mil
ler, c; Cramer, p; A. C. Miller, lb;
Pace, 2b; French, 3b; Boswell, as;

Hillside Haydlggers: Crumpacker,
c; Odle, p; Yoho, lb; Ault, 2b; De
Boie, ss; Sheets, 3b; V. Corklns, ct;'
Craig, rf; Brady, If.
Glen Odle filled the pitcher's box
for the Haydlggers while L. Cram
er occupied the same position for the
TroUeydodgers. . Owing, to the fact
that both, batteries struck out such
a large number of men at the bat,
Official Scorer T. M. Dill was. unable
to keep account of the "etruck-outs."
It is variously estimated, however,
by the crowd In general that Odle
and Cramer must have struck out
any where from half a dozen to fifty-six
on each side. This, at any rate
gives margin enough to cover any
mistake in estimate. ,
Official Umpire Charles Hug was.
on the Job from the start, and noth
ing i escaped him not even the
double play made Unassisted by De
Bole .who caught a man, out and) beat,
another runner to the base. Sheets
made a home run the first time up,
but didn't like to repeat It. The
game ,waa 'enthusiastically enjoyed
