The Republican« of Oregon are en
titled to have a Republican named as

for membership on Republican Nation

and convenient understudy of the Pro

teems now to be in combination with
him in an attempt to shanghai the
Republican organization. Hit candi

ties hostile to the Republican party
and having personal Interests and pri

It is a grave abuse for parties who
are not Republican to register as such.
It la a graver abuse for outsiders to
attempt the capture of a political par

to promote party discord. It Is an
abuse against which fair minded men
of all parties will rise In protest. We
can never have a reunited party by
pushing to the front political hotheads
and men who are political reformers
simply for the take of office. Having
been a Republican only twenty-four

In the gift of the party, Is some Indi

was in registering as a Republican.
