THE JUNIOR 8ENATOR.
Oregon liaa been pat on the map,
thank to onr Jnior Senator, Jonathan
Bonrne. Ai a pulillolty agent Brother
Jonathan caunot be beat. We might
have eipeoted It of man who coo Id
end every- voter 'in Oregon a letter
bout Statement No. 1 and aorue of ua
got two or three. The efT.ite Eaat can
be eipeoted to ait op from now on for
Oregon la going fo appear quite fre
quently in the publlo prlnta. Senator
Boorne haa been taken Into the Preai
dvnt'i Kitchen Cabinet. It uinat ba a
factfor it la mentioned In all ;tbe
papers. Now what the fnnotloua of
Kitohen Cabinet .Offloer are has not
been atated bat we can rely on oar
Junior Senator for doing the right
thing at the right time. Il appears
that part of the preliminaries prevlooa
to Introduction to the inner circle is
a phyaical tent, And so it aeeuia that
the President took our Senator out for
a walk one morning and tried to
wind him. But it was no go and if
retta reports are to be believed.
Hon me dame oft a victor In a sprint
to the top of a hill. He arrived at
the top aa freah aa a Rogue River
apple, not a Hood River one, uiiud
All Una glory ought to natisfy any
reasonable being but it did not Bourne
for ritiht on the (op of this comes the
tale that at a Bourne dinner, the now
famous .'i.OiO.OOO conspiracy agaiiiHt
Roosevelt leaked out. One of the
senators failed lo confine hia hcv.'ruiiee
to Crater Lake water and he babbled
like a purling brook but he is from
I't'iiiiHvlvauia and nothing more could
Now (liaiila Pans can shine with a
little reflected glory from all tbia, for
was not it in (iranta I'nxa that Jona
than Bourne made his start into Ore
gon life. We have Jonathan Buome's
First Addition to the town of Drams
Pass, Oregon, aa shown on the plat
now on HI., mid uf record in the otllce
of the County Clerk of Josephine
County, Oregon, reference to which'
is hereby uiaile for a more particular
description. What oilier town in
Oregon can any a much? None.
Then forever hold your pence.
Now if Jonathan la getting up in
the world, he ought to' remciutier the
towu of bis flint love. We need a
public building, any a I'nited Statea
Poat HlVioe Building and surely it is
our due In every other town up and
down the line there la hoinething but
Grants Paas don't even have an In
sane Asylum. Now some jealous
competitor will remark that we do
our share In filling it anyway. We
don't have any harbor bar to be
lowered, or any river to have the
snags polled oat of, snags have been
the making of many a town, and so
the only thing we can aak for is a
poblio building. So here is good luck
to Jonathan Bourne 'and his efforts to
give publicity to Oregon. He bas
stepped on the boards at a propitious
time. Tbe audience Is a little a
weary of Baily and Beverldge sud a
new man ought to get the encore.

A HUMAN DRAMA.
Many human drama is played on
this earth bnt at the time it is going
on the participants hardly ever realize
that they, are actors in it. It takes
time for men and events to stand oat
in their true proportons.
A drama that Is going on at the
present time and one whioh few
people realize the importance of is
the Russian straggle for liberty.
Here is naton that geographically
speaking is the largest In the world
and yet Its institutions and laws are
relics of the Dark Ages when men
fought with lanoe, spear and the cross
bow. It is now nnder that the efforts
of the an too racy to make these
medieval institutions Bt into twen
tieth Century Ideals should produce
bloody oonvolsions In the body poli
tic These Russian Revolutionaries are
going through the same experience
that onr forefathers endured in our
own Revolutionary war. In this
struggle of the Doania with the Ctar
and his Grand Dukes are beinir
formed and moulded statesmen and
soldiers who will be to that Free
Russia that is bouud to come, what

Franklin and Hamilton were to Free
