McCREADY & EARHART,
According to a dispatch sent
out from Astoria, Senator Ful
ton has taken the stand tbat he
can beat the direct primary
rvnminatinsr law before the su-
mme court. The defect alleged
by the senator is conflict with
the federal constitution. It is
quite likely that what he said
pertaining to the constitutional
conflict was meant to apply to
the placing of candidates names
on the ballot so as to allow .vot
ers to express their choice for
United States senator. ine
West Side Enterprise regrets
that Senator Fulton assumes an
unfriendly attitude toward the
attempted reform in the matter
of nominating candidates for
state office and selecting a
United States senator. It was
never intended nor claimed for
the law that the choice of
the people as indicated by the
ballots, is legally binding on the
legislature in the selection of an
United States senator. It was
intended as a step toward bring
ing the election closer to the
nnle and avoiding the legisla-
diap-race that almost invari-
0Klv nttends a senatorial elec-
t; The people are thorough
ly out of patience with legisla
tive dead-locks, hold-ups, trades
and dickers that pushes aside
ih mnst iireent legislation to
gain a point for some senatorial
candidate. Senator wiwubum,
in favor of the election of
United States senators by the
people direct, from which it
may be inferred that he en
dorses this step in that direction.
Senator Fulton is young, ener
getic, able and capable of serv
ing Oregon well in the upper

They bad a scare-head flurry
in hops down at Portland on
Wednesday. They gave out a
lot of news that had been old in
Salem, the real hop market, for
several days. There are only a
few dealers in hops in Portland.
The men who buy the hops in
Oregon have their offices in Sa
lem. And the men who raise
the hops of this state, most of
them, live within a radius of
fiftv miles of the Capital City.
This is the largest hop market
from first hands in the . world,
and it will continue to be.
If a motion to strike out "Sa
lem" "and substitute Independ
ence" as the largest hop market
from first band3 in the world be
allowed, the above will " be ac
cepted without further amend
ment as truth.

Th( new septic' tank recently
constructed at the State Mute
School ib giving complete satisfac
tion. After visiting it a few days
ago, Governor Chamberlain said;
"It seems that the septic tank will
come into general use in cities.
By this process all solid matters
are consumed and the outflow from
the septio tank is a clear and odor
less liquid I believe these tanks
should be used even where there is
good sewer connections for by this
means the sewer system can be
made to carry a larger amount of
refuse and the stream into which
it is turned will not be so heavily
polluted. In suburban districts
where there are no sewer connec
tions the septic tank will do much
to impiwve sanitary conditions.
I believe the people should in
vestigate th subject and learn the
value of the septic tank."
will not run counter to the un
mistakable sentiment of the peo
ple by fighting the law whereby
voters may nominate their own
candidates and indicate their
choice for United States senators.
