New Labor Party
A labor party has been organized in
Portland by the adoption of an empha-
tic platform and resolutions, outlining
a course of action. The Union men
of Portland are at the head of the
organization and they seem to be
working on principles laid down by the
Labor Party of San Francisco, which
has been wonderfully successful in
controling that city— having been able
to keep their mayor in office through
three or four consecutive administra
tions, against the combined Republican
and Democratic force*.
It is not
likely that this party in Portland, how
ever, will be as strong. Their prin
ciples, so far laid down are good but
conditions in Portland are not similiar
to those in San Francisco. They will
have a ticket in the field in the coming
