for temperance measures.
TEd.l Albany has had law enforce

neither, our record Is not so good. No
wonder the wet editor desires to con

THE ONLY ISSUE.
Bourne and Bournelsm is the Issue
In the campaign which will close with
the election November 8. There is
no disguising the fact. Bourne and
Chamberlain hare formed a political
alliance and through the election of
Oswald West, democratic nominee for
Governor, propose to promote their
own selfish political Interests. There
is no denying this combination.
Neither Bourne nor Chamberlain, nor
their organ, the Portland Journal, has
undertaken to deny or refute this
charge. It is unquestionably true.
Bourne is openly supporting West, a
Democrat, against Bowerman, the Re
publican direct primary nominee.
Thla attlude on the part of Bourne
can only be construed as a repudiation
of the direct primary law ltBelf. In
other words, the direct primary law Is
satisfactory to Bourne Just so long
as it produces results satisfactory to
him. Because Bowerman received the
nomination at the hands of the Re
publicans In the primaries. Bourne is
now openly bolting the head of his
own ticket. In view of the political
partnership of Bourne and Chamber
lain and Its object the election of
West for Governor and a perpetuation
of the Bourne-Chamberlain regime in
this state; every friend of the direct
primary in the state should support
the Republican ticket as nominated.
Every voter Who wotUd put an end
to Bourne and Bournelem in ibis state
will vote for Bowerman. The time
has come when Bourne in allegiance
with his Democratic colleague in the
senate, should not, be permitted to
dictate the nomination and election of
a Governor, and a Democrat at that,
when the only purpose to be served
is a perpetuation of their alliance and
political Interests in this state. A
vote for Bowerman means not only a
repudiation of Bourne and his ques
tionable methods, but the upholding
of the direct primary lew.
