Mr, Dixon said that for more than BO

Hut most everyone know thnt If the

tho Republican pnrty has been In con

of tho lunt CO, nnd alnco 1872, only 22
year out of the Inat 40. In that time,
thorn have been two Democratic nd

His work for Roosevelt will not git
much support In this state.
Tho nowa that Ormaby Mcllarg Is
ono of tho Itoosevelt manager nnd Is
going through th country organising
a following for the Oyster Day candi
date will not be received with entire
approbation by people of Oregon.
They will remember that it waa this
some Ormaby Mcllarg who came to
Oregon Just a few abort years ago and
did everything in hla power to Indue
membefa ofjthe State Legislature to
violate tholrKioat solemn ledf es to
tho pop by refusing to support state

At that tieao tfrassy Mcllarg waa
evidently not so ndcit of a progressiva
as bo has become in this campaign,
Tho people of Oregon had declared for
Oeorgo EX Chamberlain for United
Hates senator. 'Ilut Orrasby Mcllarg
did not then wnnt the peoplo to rulo.
One of tho most disgraceful scenes
ever witnessed at the Oregon capital
was this Mcllarg person bringing ev
ery possible influence to bear to get
weak-kneed legislators to disregard
tho peoples' Instructions, vlolato thr
statement No, 1 pledge and cast their
ballot for a Republics senator.
