JONATHAN BOURNE, JR. ,
Republican Candidate for United States Senator
Champion of Statement No. I.

nomination of United Status Sonalor in Congress, for the long term commencing
March 4, 1907, was horn in New Bedford, Miihs., February 23, 1H55; was a

1878; was a Republican member of the Oregon legislature in the tension of 1885
and the extra session of 1K80; was one of Oregon's delegates to the Republican
National Convention of 1888, and Oregon's member of the Republican National
Committee from 1888 to 1802, and a delegate to the Republican Nation8
Convention of 1892; and was elected as a Mitchell Republican to the Oregon
Legislature In 18!.
Mr. Bourne has been more prominently identified with the development of tbe
mineral resources of Oregon than any other man in the State, having expanded
la the last 20 years over f 1,000,000 of his own money In tbe acquisition and de
velopmont of Oregon mines.
While-Mr. Bourne has had bis residence and main office at Portland since 1878,
be has had another office at New Bedford, Mass., and has carried on the business
of bis father's estate since 1880, which makes him familiar, with many of the
large Interests and leading men in tbe East. These qualifications, in conjunr
tlon with bit tremendous energy, originality, executive ability and experience

tlve committee of tbe Direct Primary Nominations League, and holds the same
position with the People's Power league at this time. In all of these move
ments he has boen one of th few to guarantee the necessary expenses of pre
narlug and proposing their measures to the people.
