Friday, Kkdukary 27, 1903,
Until n few days before the
finale, the remark could be heard
on every corner: "Neither Ful
ton nor Geer will be elected."
"That Salem gang is n set of bood
Icrs, and are out for the 'swag.
Neither Fulton nor Geer are rich
enough to buy their way into the
United States senate." Accom
panied by the above remark would
come the insinuation that a Port
laud man would "get there". How
do those who are willing at all
times to throw the stigma of
bribery on the several members of
the legislature feel about it now?
Fulton, a poor man was elected.
Two years ago Senator Mitchell,
who was broken in fortune, was re
turned to his old seat, in the face of
the assertion that thousands of dol
lars were to be had for votes m an
other direction. Come gentlemen I
It is time to admit that all legisla
tors arc no . thieves and scoundrels,
only answering here to the man
who packs up the biggest sack of
swag. Wcliavejust passed through
a good fight, and won on the merits
of tfie man, through unflinching
honesty and courage of his admirers
aud supporters. Lets give the
Devil his due, once' in a while,
There Is 11 condition exlstiiij; In
this city which should remedied, unit
which Hen in the power of the city
council to straighten out In n few
weeks time. It Is the matter of le
gally namimr,the street. No doubt
the matter lins been overlooked; but
nt this time It would mot that It
could be taken up with iierfect pro
priety. It would certainly lie n mt
ixlnctlon to property owners to
know the name of the street upon
which their iroierty In Ideated.
There Is no more embnrrusKlim po
rtion than for one to le held up by 11
stranger, put-chance n prospective
purchaser of property, ami le 1111
nhlo to Kive him the official nameo'
the BtreetH upon which Is located tl.e
property recommended to him. A
surveyor should lie called into ser
vice and with the aid of a committee
of the council, decide upon, and
name the streets.
It is gratifying to the Xugget to
announce the election of C.- V.
Fulton to the United States senate.
Mr. Fulton has long been the
choice of the Nugget for that high
honor, and this paper was one of
the first to come out in his favor,
early last year. Mr. Fulton has
always been rated as one of the
strongest aud hardest working re
publicans in Oregon. He bears a
record of which no man would .be
ashamed, for honesty, courage, and
energy. He is an orator far be-ea"
yond the ordinary, a genial gentle-1
man who will make hosts of friends
at the national capital. He is in
perfect harmony with Senator
Mitchell and the two will make a
team not easily surpassed. The
state is to be congratulated 011 the
outcome of the senatorial contest.
A correspondent to an exchange
does not object to the Standar 1 Oil
people raising the price of coal oil
a cent or two n gallon and making,
thereby a clean profit of $6,000,000,
but he raises a great howl' about
the Standard Oil people selling
water for oil. He is about right.
It is supposed that a man or a firm
or corporation isjust'fied in making
all the money possible; but it is tin
lawful for a man or 5rm or corpor
ation 'o obtain money finder false
pretenses. The Standard Oil Com
pany is practically selling water
for oil. The Standard oil people
should be prosecuted for fraud, and
obtaining money under false pie
tenses. The Lane county delegation cer
tainly is entitled to a share of the
honor of placing Hon. C V. Ful
ton in the United States senate
1 he entire delegation was as one
man for Fulton first last and all the
time. It is such tenacity cf pur
pose that accomplishes the greatest
good. Senator Fulton can well
afford to he proud of his .staunch
Lane county supporters.
Governor Chamberlain vetoed
senate bill No. 50, which provided
for the better protection of Oregon
forests. This is not only a direct
blow to Oregon in the matter of
protecting one of the state's great
est resources, but was a thrust at
the limber and saw mill men of the

The above estimates are very con
servative' and according to Mayor
Job, if no unusual exiiemliture Is In
curred, such as the breaking of a
main or reservoir in the next two
mouths, the net amount on hand
will exceed the above figures.
In conversation with Mayor Job,
that gentleman expresMil his liellef
that the.'i mill city tax can lie done
away with this year. Mayor Job
arrives at this conclusion from the
following figures: j
The general fund leaves an a-!
proximate balance of $tiM.I(j. To
this add for the year ending April 0. 1
MM, the same receipts (which cer
tainly will not lie less , which
represents the saloon, show license 1
and fines, makes the city's general
fund $3114.10. From this take the ex-'
pendltures, amounting to SiUOo.M,
would leave a balance of .S'JUS.Ui in
the general fundAprllClOOi, without
the leveylng of a city tax.
Whether or no It Is advisable to do
this Is a question yet to lie deter

Important that a sewerage fund In

city In Oregon Is as poorly provided I
witli sewerage, aud no city in the

It Is the opinion of some that a
city tax should be levied again this
year and with the aid of thefunds on

water funds to the sewerage fund.
