Governor Accuses take of
CAKE IS THE PEOPiES CHOICE
It Is Only a Question of W hat
' Mr. lake's Majority
Who cannot lilp from asking that
question ftor hearing or reading the
campaign sjeeches of the (iovcrnor.
The Governor said that if lctil to
tliH Hrnate lie ull try to see that
an employers' liability lw, applicable
to the interstate railroads, were inimc
dintcly passed. Ho chnrpml that
Congress IiikI nfusiil to pass mieh a
bill (ilthoiiKh the President had rec-onmi.-ndrd
iU passage a numlxr of
times. The furt h are that Congress,
bout two years flgo, passed nn act
concerning thin subject and the same
was held uncoimtitutional because it
admits the regulation employers'
liahility in several state when thi
was a mutter over which Congress hint
no control. Tin legislatures of the
everal states tindr our system have
exclusive control "on that subject
within the nt.it-, an.l Congress can
only regulate i-nrh matters relating
to commerce between the states.
During the present Congress a bill on
this subject was passed and signed by
president Knosevelt and the legislation
it entirely satisfactory to railway em
ployees throughout the country. In
proof of this Btatement reference is
made to President Roosevelt's last
Again Governor Chamberlain ac
cuses Wr. Cake of bad faith and of
vile, nefarious treatment of Senator
Fulton in the primary campaign in
not denying tho charges made against
the Senator and defending his good
name therefrom. The evident pur
poBO of Governor Chamberlain is to
cieate in tho minds of the friends of
Senator Fulton, a feeling of resent
ment and revolt against Mr.' Cake's
candidacy so that the Governor would
inherit thoir votes.
Those who have heard Mr. Cake's
addresses will remember that Mr.
Cako spoke of Mr. Fulton in the
highest terms and oi one occasion,
in "his speech in Union, branded the
charges made against Senator Fulton
as absolutely falso.
Governor Chamberlain further said
that if he was a friend of. Senator Ful
ton's he would have made that denial.
Little comfort will be obtained; by the
Governor when the true facts, regard
ing that vile controversy between Mr.
Ileney and Mr. , Fulton are '.known.
Mr. Ileney, in his speech -in Portland
on January 28th, last, quotes the
Btatement of Governor Chamberjain
using these words,. "Governor Cham
berlain, I have talked with about tbjs
matter. He has made no affidavit,
but I suppose his word, will go with
out swearing to it and here 'is what
he told me." Then'.vMr. Heney
quoted at length from' the. statement
of the Governor in which J. S. Smith
was by him fully exonerated.: Heney
alteo read an affidavit of Bishop H. L.
Barclay who also "butts in" on the
game. Then Governor Chamberlain,
at Salem, gave out an interview to a
well known democratic paper for the
purpose of confirming .the statement
of Heney and discrediting Senator
Fulton when the Senator branded the
Btatement as a malicious lie. It now
becomes apparent to the public that
the Governor, although now contend
ing that Cake should have defended
Senator Fulton, was one of the par
ties engaged in the dastardly attempt
to blacken Senator Fulton's good
name for the purpose of bolstering up
his own political ambition. It now
appears most certain that Heney and
Chamberlain mere conspiring togeihir
for the purpose of aiding in democrat
ic iii.-ee. Un the senatorial eamaiKn.
The Governor must think that the
voters of Oregon do not read the
nrwfpx ri or he would not have as
wiled Mr. Cake far failing to defend
an accusation ginst tfenator Fulton,
which a being nmds by Heney in
puMtinnee of a conspiracy of which
Governor Chamberlain an Im
portant niemU-r. Smith was appoint
d by Governor Chamberlain lo the
position of assistant warden of the
stat jMiiiwntiary, and Ilishop liar

conspiracy, presided over and intio

Governor' meeting at f!. Johns when

Ill view of tlm firogoh ' factK, the
Governor's sincerity and honesty of
purjiose must be severely questioned
