FRIDAY, FEBRUARY t6, 1906
I.ast Monday, Feb. 12, was tlie
i;th anniversary of the birth of the
martyred Lincoln. For one short
week the press of the country has
been paying tribute to the greatness
of mind and heart of our most be
loved president. Lincoln, with his
intimate and profound sympathy
for all humanity, won a place in the!
hearts of the American people that
will live as long as the American
government exists. j
Not alone was he great in those
qualities of heart 'that endear him
Jo a people but his statesmanship,
in the perplexiug and soul-harrowing
times of the great rebellion,
stands with the best that the world
has produced. yVitu a keen, logi
cal mind, a moral sense that brooked
no dallvine with duty, and the
courage to stand alone for his con
victions, he presents an .example
both infuis public aud private life
that all true American can feci safe
in following. Whether signing lie

THE ONLY REASON. .
Lincoln Steffens, in the Sunday
Oregouian, tells the reasons, as he
sees them, for the bitter hostility to ;
President Roosevelt that is found in
the present congress. He is at
Washington making a study of con
gress and at the close of an article
regarding this hostility, he says;
"The secret must lie in the things he
is trying to get done. What are they?
They are many, but among them are
three pieces of legislation which big
special interests are opposing: the state
hood bill, the Philippine tariff bill and a
bill to regulate railroad rates. Now I
don't know the merits of these two bills,
not yet: nor do I cart- much about them.
The point for the present is that the
president' thinks that they are in our in
terests aud the friends of the senate think
we think so. They believe we are behind
tlie president. Whether we are or not
i another question. This is certain:
" 'They' fear that we are. Wliat else
can be the meaning of the great Wash
ington question, 'Is the president's pop
ularity wanini:?' They think the presi
dent represents us. meaning you and me
and the man in the street all of
; us, who
don't want anything but a
Ami that's what's the
matter in Wash
ington, I think. Not alone that tlie
president is president, but that he is
'our' president; not that he is more than
president; not that he is a boss, flosses
are not bitter about bosses. The trouble
seems to be that the president is bossing
them in our interest; he is trying to
make them represent us a little."
How close to the truth he strikes!
President Roosevelt is no weakling.
He is fully determined to do all in
his power to accomplish legislation
which he deems of great value to
the nation. He is an untiring an,tag-
onisr nf craft and corruption, and
i... i. has Jolted coneress out
the demands of the people are con
ccrncdlor tltcsc reasons a certain
clique of "Rraft" politicians are
bent on his destruction. It is a
fight as old as civilization the
forces of corruption arrayed against
integrity nnd moral cleanness.
The exception taken by the
Princvillc Review to The Bulletin's
statement regarding t h e Recti
Harsh man opposition against a fed
eral appointee from this quarter
shows not only bad taste but n woe
ful ignorance of fact. When it says
"that the federal appointee had
enough pull with the administra
tion to have the 'charges' crushed
without a hearing" it states that
which it well knows to bo un
true or is babbling about, a subject
without possessing sufficient infor
mation. It may interest the Review
to know that H. T. Jones, a special
inspector for the government, spent
two weeks in Bend giving these
charges thorough investigation. If
the Review is anxious to verify this
statement it will be an easy matter
to interview a dozen or mote of
Bend's citiaeus whom Mr. Jones
had bctore him in the "sweat box."
As The Hulletin said two weeks ago
the charges coukl not stand nlouo
when uiven investigation. There's
U world of difference between real
j.n5it and the groundless charges of
jealous persons, but the Review ev
idently can't see it. No man is so
blind as he who will not see.

The president has won the first
battle in the-fight against Jiim in
congress. When it came to a show
ing of strength the "insurgents"
were hopelessly beaten. The Hep
burn railroad rate bill, at) adminis
tration measure, was passed by tlie
large majority of 346 to 7. It is
now expected that the senate will
amend this bill so as to make pos
sible an appeal to the courts from
decisions of the Interstate Com
merce Commission, and then will
pass the bill. The house will un
doubtedly concur in the amend
ment. Another victory for our
The best that can be said of the
parody on the twenty-third psalm
published in last week's Priuevillc
Review, and claimed to have ami
uated from Bend, is that it contains
a lot of cheap wit and no .-ensc.
The Bulletin has heard not a single
Javorable comment regarding it,
but much criticism. Such an effort
was probably conceived and written
in a thoughtless moment, but it is
by far better to write parodies on
something less holy than thac mas
terful twenty-third psalm. It bor
ders too closely on the sacrilegious.
Washington dispatches state that
the railroads of the country are

The railroad managers
have requested their friends in the
senate to withdraw their apposition
to present measures in the hope of
stopping the dcmauil of the people
for jnst treatment at the hands of
traffic cotnpattys. A pungent ex

Fred lusher, who resides on Sage
Brush Flat about six miles north
east of this place, is being talked of
as a candidate for the tepublicau
nomination for county commission
er at the approaching primaries, aud
the demand that he become a can
didate for the county commissioner
ship is becoming so urgent that he
may be persuaded to permit the use
of his name.
Mr. Fisher has been a resident of
this end of the county since the first
settlers moved into the . Agency
Plains country; in fact, he is one of
our "pioneer citiiens." He has ac
quired a nice body of wheat laud
upon the tint and is improving it as
rapidly as possible, his private in
terests there having occupied most
of his time since he came into this
section. Iluwcver, notwithstand
ing his attention to private affairs,
Mr. Fisher still had sufficient time
to interest himself in roads and oth
er county improvements for This
end, and to nn extent that has made
him a valuable member of the com
munity And, it has been his ac
tive autl uuselnsii interest in an
matters portuiuiug to the commuti
, ity life of this end of the county
which has particularly marked him
as fine timber for the county com
mitsiouership. A man of practical Mess, oner
getlc, and interested in the growth
awl development of the county, Mr.
Fisher would make a most accept
able county commissioner, and if he
will become a candidate he is en
titled to the full vote of his party in
the primaries to be held in April.
Western Crook county is entitled to
representation on the county board,
and it wants just such representa
tion as Mr. Fisher would give it.
America's great men in the field
of public service far surpass, in
number and importance, those
whom we have produced in nnv
other line in history, literature,
science, or art. It was Gladstone's
opinion that nowhere at any time
had there been gathered together a
group of statesmen to equal thote
w h o surrounded Washington
Franklin. Hamilton, Jefferson. Ad
ams, Madison, Jay, ami a number
of others deserving to lw ranked
with these. Since then we hpve had
others standing high Marshall,
Welwter. Calhoun, Clay but since
Washington none who equals Line
oln in significance to the nation.
And in humanity, in personal rep
resentativeness, in universality of
feeling, Lincoln stands for the peo
pic, of all kinds and all places, more
than any other of our statesmen of
any period. The most humorous of
our leaders, he was also most sym
pathetic and of the deepest charity.
"I never heard him utter n com
plaint," said Grant, "nor cast a
censure." Aud Lowell spoke of
him as "sagacious, patient, dread
ing praise, not .blame," Morally,
in other words, in attributes of
heart, his greatness was preeminent.
None of our great men means so
much to our hearts as Lincoln. For
none is the love of the people so in
timate and so warm. And in none
are found so many qualities which
can serve as the inspiration of all of
us in daily life. "What Lincoln
would have done" is the best guide
the memory of any American states
man gives to his compatriots today,
iu public or in private walks.
Food Value of Alfalfa.
The very important value of al
falfa as a feed for various domestic
animals is forcibly pointed out by
I. D. Graham of Topeka, Kansas,
in the last report of the bureau of
animal industry at Washington.
This plant he declares to Ik- the
inostyvaluable and important known
to Western agriculture. Alone it is
said to be almost a perfect ration
for milch cow3 and growing ani
mals and by adding feed rich in fut
pnd carbohydrates an ideal combi-
nation can be made for fattening
stock. Not only Is nlfalfa valuable
as n feed for cattle, but tt is fine for
horses, sheep, hogs, aud even poul
try. Mr. Graham's article is illus
trated with pictures of a number of
fine nnimals which took prixes at
the St. Louis exposition and else
where and which were fed on alfalfa.
REPORT OF ORIiUON.
What tho Woman's tlqunl SulfrnRO
Association llns Done.
At the 38th annual convention of
the National American Woman
Suffrage Association iu session iu
lhiltimore, Mil. Mrs. Henry Waldo
Coc. president of the Oregon Equal
Suffrage Association, made a te()rt
of the campaign for equal .suffrage
iu this state, ol wlitclt tne lonowiug
is nu abstract.
lly virtue of the initiative and
referendum law of Oregon nn
amendment must be submitted to
the constitution when eight jwr
cent of the voters petition for it.
Therefore, in order to secure the
submission of n suffrage amend
ment, it requires the signatures of
7, .108 registered voter. At the
close of the National Convention iu
July about t.too of theoc names
had been secured. The total Hum
Iwr of names secured was more than
1 2,000; tlie number accepted by the
secretary ot state was 9,90.1; giving
a margin of 2,415 more than the
The law provides that the associ
ation filing a petition may accom
pany itv with an argument in its
lavor, and that any association
or Uiutviuuai oppoieu, may iikv-
wise file a document, nnd it both
arc filed they shall be bound with
theconvol the amendment, by me
secretary of state, and placed iu the
hands of each county cleric wiio
shall see that n copy is given each
voter as he registers, i lie pro-
suffrage argument, which is a
masterful nreMiiitattou of logic, lact
and philosophic insight, all in 3,000
wortis, was written ny mis lhurh
liti and accepted aud indorsed by
the board of officers of the State
Equal Suffrage Association as their
official document. 100.000 copies of
it have been filed with the secre
tary of state and will be sent out by
him March 1st. ao.ooo extra
copies of the argument have been
printed for general distribution.
On labor day a great celebration
was hekl iu Portland and three
jMjpular speakers. Mrs. Lucia F.
Additon, president of the Oregon
W. C. T. U., Hon. Avery C. Moore
of Idaho, and James C. Keller of
Cleveland, Ohio, president of the
Rational Letter Carriers' Associa
tion, spoke strongly for suffrage, ami
were enthusiastically ruceived. The
next day the National Letter Car
ricrs'convention awembled iu Port
laud and a special invitation was
sent to the suffragifcts, which was
gladly accepted. Mi Clay pre
sented a resolution which was en
dorsed almost unanimously.
Indorsement has also been asked
of numerous local and country
granges, and iu ubt a single in
stance has it been refused. This
organization with its 5.000 members
will be a tower of strength in the
campaign. The State Federation
of Woman's Clubs, which hitherto
bus stood .non-committal ou the
suffrage question, came out this
year with a ringing resolution rec
ommendiiii' the study of the
question to clubs, and pledging
the delegates to tue earnest support
of the movement. The resolution
was offered by Mrs. Abigail Scott
Duniwayi the p'oneer champion, of
woman sullrage in Urcgon, aim
after a brilliant address by Mrs.
Duniwav. was patted without a
dissenting vote. At the same time
the state convention of the W. C. T.
U. was in session, the most cordial
courtesies wer6 extended to our
national auditor, Miss Clay, and an
equally strong resolution of indorse
The Sacajawca Association also
endorsed womnn suffrage unani
mously, The high schools are ink
ing up the question for debate,
mid the calls upon the headquarters
for literature arc constantly increas
ing. The governor of Oregon has re
cently emphasized his belief in equal
rights by appointing Mrs. Clara
Waldo regent ol the btate Agricui
cultural College. Mrs. Waldo is
the state lecturer for the grange.
The Equal Suffrage Association
has trebled its membership within
the year and new members arc
added every week. Others who
opposed us in the last campaign are
quiet now, saying u "nc iu
fight suffrage longer for it is tlie
"Woman's hour iu Oregon."
We arc therefore pressing for
ward in the firm belief that Oregon
will send its delegates to the next
convention holding aloft the fifth
star upon the nuffragc flag.
