Jonathan Bourne falls far below
our ideal of a United Statts Sen
ator; but wbeu it ,oroes to choos
ing between Bourne and popular
government on the one hand and
Taft and Pulton and government
by the gang on the other, we opine
that the former will win just as
often as the issue shall be plared
before the voters of Oregon. The
amazing stupidity which perpe
trated the "assembly" blunder last
spring still clings to the Repub
lican camp and will carry the "in
terests" wing of the party to the
same goal, unerringly aud inevit
ably. The people of Oregon have
tasted power and will not surren
der their right to rule. Their
new manner of government may
not in all respects be exactly per
fect, but it is vastly better thuu the
old rule by a corrupt machine.

Crook county has more miles of
main wagon road than any othei
county in Oregon, according to the
sfigures of the Conservation Com
mission, which has just filed its re
port with the Governor. We have
450 miles, with 9,.;oo inhabitant!,
and taxable valuation of 7,910,
43X. Harney and Malheur
counties each have 350 miles of
main roads, but each of them is
much larger than Crook in area,
though having less population and
taxable value. Hood River
county maintains but 20 miles of
main roads, Union county 50 miles
and Gillianinnd Tillamook each 70
A CLASS OF "JUDICIAL A1URDEK."
Grave crimes may sometimes be
traced directly to the door of the
courts. Last week a woman was
cruelly murdered in Portland by
her recreant husband, who had re
peatedly threatened to kHl her.
He had gone so far as to leave 110
doubt of his design, aud complaint
was made to the Municipal Court
and protection asked for. But the!
judge dismissed the complaint aud
turned the villain loose. The
brutal murder promptly followed. 1
In Crook county four years ago
old man Melvin sought the pro
tection of tne Circuit Court
against S. H. Dorrance, who, in
violation of express agreements,
was crowding the old man out of
his property in the most overbear
ing manner imaginable. The con
vincing evidence was before the
court, yet it would not act. What
everybody who had knowledge of
the case foresaw followed in regu
lar order. Dorrance shot first but
Melvin bad better aim and Dor
rance was killed.
Why nre the courts so tender
with lawbreakers of this class?
Law-abiding citizens should be
