The primary is over and everybody
seems satisfied with theresnlts. The
defeat of Johnatban Bourne for nom
ination as U. S. Senator is especially
gratifying, and beina so pronounced it
should forever eliminate him fiom
Oregon politics. Ontide of Mult

made a red-hot fight for him during

and succeeded in carrying the county
by a small plurality,' he was aiiriDly

Tuft called attention to the delicit theu
existing in tlie revenues and the con
sequent necessity for rigid ecouoniy in

singled out the department of iigrlcul

resources is being carried on success

Reports made recently to Secretary
Wilson of the department of agricul

president for tbe department. In call

Taft For Conservation.
In his conservation message Presi
dent Taft emphasized the Importance
of the maintenance of the forests and
urged their scientific treatment "so
that they shall be made to yield a large
return in timber without really reduc
ing the supply," and in other messages
be pointed out the necessity of refor
estation. In accordance wiih these
views much available work has been,
done iu protecting the national forests
and by researches in the laboratory of
the department ot .Madison. Wis., and

Can a man who disregards the whole

cap of the third term precedent aud
land himself In the White House?
This is a question all Republicans
are asking. All agree that no Ameri
can has ever been able to do it and
they can count on one finger the num
ber who even had the hardihood to try
it, and that only when spurred on 1y
self-seeking politicians who posed as
friends. People are asking themselves
if this is not the condition in the pres

Not a Strong Vote Getter.
Despite a tremendous popularity in
the past, Roosevelt has never been a
remarkable vote-getter. Mr. Bryan
too, is remarkably strong all over the
country and has been for years, but
everyone knows how he failed to mus
ter the votes. When Roosevelt was
elected to the presidency, he ran
against a weak opponent. Judge Par
ker did not have the support of his
own party in that election.
But what Roosevelt has done since,
and indeed very recently, in vote-
getting Is more significant than his
former campaigns. Results of the
last election speak louder than any

His Attacks Helped.
in Connecticut, Mr. Roosevelt at
tacked the democratic candidate for
governor, but he was elected by a ma
jority of 3,700.
In New Hampshire, where Mr.
Roosevelt's friend and champion,
Robert P. Eass, was elected, the vote
fell off 12,000 as compared with the
majority given to Mr. Taft in 1908.
As further evidence that Mr. Roose
velt's star is waning, may be cited the
fact, that the announcement of the
Rosevelt candidacy for the third term
did not evoke throughout the country
anywhere near the predicted enthus
iasm. In fact, the big shout that was
supposed to follow the throwing of
T. R's hat into the ring was noticeably
absent, from Massachusetts to Ore

above a whisper.
