THURSDAY, MAY 1, 1002.
It ! reported that Governor T.T. User
has decided to become a candidate (or
United Statea Senator, and to that end
will have his name placed on the ticked.
A recent law provide that voters may
express their choice (or United Bute
Senator's in this) manner, sud aeplrante
lor this office may place tneir names be
fore the people (or tbeir approval. Tbs
elective power still remains wholly in
the hands ol lbs momb'ri of the legisla
ture, bnt ths voice of the people strongly
expressed, would sid them vary materi
ally in making their selection. There is
ne doubt that Governor Geer will prove
a strong candidate with the people, and
the rival ac pi rams will find Ibis (actor in
the case s serious vexation to them.
Southern Oregon will undoubtedly roll
Dp a large majority for Hod. A. M. Craw
ford of Roseburir, the Republican nomi
nee (or Attorney-General ol Oregon. He
is a man who has a high standing In ths
legal profession ; a man of great ability
and uoimpeached integrity. He hae
bean oneol Southern Oregon's leading
lawyers (or about SO years, practicing
lormsrly iu Coos county, and later at
Uouburg. lis is thoroughly qualified
iu every way lor ths Important utiles lor
which he is a candidate, and If sleeted
v ill b a must excellent ulMcar. Tbs fact
that be is a southern Oregon man gives
him additional popularity and stieugtb
iu Ibis portion of the stale.
Excellence should be appreciated and
ths people ol this county will, in ths
coming election, have sn opportunity of
manifesting their appreciation ol the
excellent manner in which R. L. Mart
let! has msnagud ths affairs ol the eouii
ty clerk's offlce for tlie past (our years
His nomination (or a third term was vir
tually Inevitable in visw ol ths lact that
it was a public demand, and lha placing
ol any other man on ths ticket lor that
office by the Republican party would
have been a serious affront to popular
sentiment. Ths office ol county clerk
is one which is removed (rom political
partisanship. Ths county clerk baa di
reel dealings in the course of a term with
nearly every man In ths county and it Is
no small part of Mr. Varlletl's ofllcial ex
celleiice that he meets all with unfailing
courtesy and with obliging spirit and
willingness to glvs Intsrest and alien'
tion to all who may coins, lis manages
ths clerical duties ol theotllcs with fault
less accuracy, and has welt nlgb made
himself indispensable to Josephine conn
ty. It is doubtful il this county ever had
another officer so thoroughly satisfacto
ry aa ita nreeent and future clerk.
A government must fit its people. To
be In ita beat possible atsts ol perfection,
it must rest in the hands ol that portion
ol its people who are capable ol conduct'
Ing it. Thus we find that ignorant or
barbarous peoples are governed almost
entirely by the few, while in civilized
and enlightened nations, nearly all of
ths people participate more or leas in
tbs conduct otitis government, and, II
they are not allowed this privilege, there
is dissatisfaction, strife and turmuil until
they are permitted to share In the gov
srnmentof their country. In long'eelab-
llilied monarchies like England and
Germany, which wisely grant these prist'
legea to their people when the time is
ripe, the form of government may re
main nominally the same ; the ruler may
continue to be called kiag or emperor
and retain s rueamire ol authority, though
s limit is placsd on his powers The
French government placed Itself in the
path ol this irreaiatibls law and perished
in one of the bloodiest revolutions ol hii
lory. Kvery veitige ol government waa
swept away and had to be built up en
tirely anew, As a people progresses, so
must its government. Measures and
ideas that once were good become out el
date. New ones are always In demand
Aa government has constantly developed
and ebilled in form aince it was first in
itltuted, il la folly to suppose thst it has
ceased lo do so st lbs present time ; that
il has become stationary and will not
change, A stationary condition is
thing unknown in nature. There muat
be progress or retrogression; growth or
decay. Changes in governmental form
or conduct are beat made gradually, per-
haps imperceptibly, like a natural growth
Sudden changea are violent and demoral
ling. The nation is fortunate whose
aiateimen ran deled ths signs of the
limes and keep the machinery of gov
eminent op to the time's demand. Iu
this country, the tendency of the present
time la toward a more democratic man'
tier ol government than we hare yet had
a government more directly under the
people's control. Our peoplo are better

also the load ol powder and shot that
waa extracted (rom the gun. Il was a

had just started into the house wilh an

Mrs. Schouhai'licler was called, and
the tent 1 11 limy ol the ae.l lady was ill st
toilful aa she told Ihe storv of llie
crime. She and her husband had lived
on the farm by the Simpkius runch for
four years pant. Her husband and
(iibson had iiiai ruled several times
piior to the shooting. Three or four
weeks before, (iibnon cama over cue
early in lining lailorn she had arisen
(rom bed and had a quarrel with Schon
ll .( icier ju.t outride the house. The
iti,rrel was about a call o( (iibsnn'a that

him lo dog his cattle any more. Then

Uiheoii anil Schonbacheler bad quar
rs'elin the fnimrr'a orchard over tne
matter uf the division fence. Gibson
tliieitened to put Schonbacheler otil ol
the orchard, but his wile, who was
preacnt, advised him not to do so. On
the morning of the shooting Mrs Schon
bacheler saw Gibaoii go acro his field
with a gnu ou bia thouldcr, whistling
about live o'clock thai evening. Schon
bacheler came into the house and told
his wile that he believed he would take
hia gun and go out and shoo, a squirrel,
lie went out with the weapon and a
little later she saw (iibsou meet him
and cry out, "i'ut down that gun." He
raired hia rifle and tired and Schon
bacheler lell. She ran across the field
to where her bunbaud lay and found
him dead. There waa no one within a
hall mile and she did not knjw what lo
do. She first started toward Ihe home
uf Mr. Crow but ahe bad gone but a
short diatance when she saw Van lorn
