A Portland saloonkeeper was re

The death of tioMTiior Johnson tias
liaused a pang of regret turmignnui
Iho nation. Hi ltC. story would read
I ke a romance In any country ext . -pi
AmerUa. still ihe land of equal op
portunlty. where Industry may over
come poverty and natural ability
welsh far more than social position
and advantage. Johnson1 boyhood
was i;rrouitded by the direst poverty,
hi fa'her a worthless drunkard, com
pelling the boy mother to work over
the washtub In order to support her
children, until the future governor
was old enough to take up the bur
deu of labor himself. And yet this
man, of foreign parentage. became
governor of tils tate In the early
thirties, won distinction and power,
and gained the respect of the entire
nation, without the assistance ot
....aithv nr Influential friends, and
without resorting to the methods of
the demagogue. Hi was a typical
American career, ending all too soon,
and bringing a touch of sorrow to po
litical friend and foe alike, who feel
that his death is. a national bereave
ment. At the time of his death, he
was still a young man who gaveprom
Ise of great usefulness to the plain
people one of whom he still remained
although by force of ability and lnteg
rlty he had thrice been elected to the
governorship of a great state.

Some of the metropolitan papers
have issued warnings that their north

a majority of the stories would be

much needless trouble.
From a neutral standpoint it looks
if "Joy rides' and road houses in
Multnomah county will go a long way-
create a s.rong sentiment against
saloons in that county and help
greatly in making the state "dry
next year. In almost every instance
It has been gambling and lawless sa
loonkeepers which have made county
after county go "dry."

Baker City, September 22.
The constitutional amendment to
take the election of sheriffs, district
attorneys and state officers out of th
people's hands and give the govern
or the power to appoint, as advocat
ed by U'Ren, would cr?ate such a
monster political, machine that it
would eclipse ail other boss rule ev
er attempted in Oregon. Surely it is
-about time for the republicans who
went crazy over the U'Ren fallacies
to regain their senses and adhere
Btrictly to representative government.
The election in New York city in
November will be the most important
one in the country this year. It is
the only election in which the whole
country is interested, the outcome of

How to Cure a Cold.
Be as careful as you can, you will
occasionally take cold, and when you
do, get a medicine of known reliabil
ity, one that has an established rep
utation and that is certain to effect a
quirk cure. Such a medicine is Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy. It has
gained a world wide reputation by its
remarkable cures of this most com
mon ailment, and can always be de
pended upon. It acts on nature's plan,
relieves the lungs, aids expectoration,
opens the secretions and aids nature
In restoring the system to a healthy
condition. For sale by P. M. Kirkland
