William J. I.achncr, of linker City,

Tax OommiHHlunerH, declares that be
will do all in bis power to help elect
tbe entire Republican ticket. "1 have

Saw No Signs of Impropriety.
Hon. Hen Helling, Htate Senator
from Multnomah county in 181)7, when
aiked as to 'hat he knew of the
Ilourue beadoiiarters in tbe Kldrblge
block, at S ilem, replied :
"1 had rooms on the same floor in
the block where Mr. Ilourue had his
political headquarters, lu addition,
I was a visitor in bis rooms, and once
dined at his table. I did not see tbe
slightest indication of any impropri
ety whatever. There certainly was no
intoxication, though table wines were
served at meals to those who wanted
them. 1 neither saw nor heard of any
gambling, and I never saw any woman
there or in or about the building.
The charge that Mr. Ilourue kept dis
solute women there or that he con
ducted in any sense a quest'onable
resort, or harbored 'blackguards,
pimps, gamblers, grafters and thugs,'
as alleged, Is not true, as far as my
personaljobservation is concerned."
Ilisliop l.lveil at Headquarters.
Henry lj. Ilarkley, Hlsbop of the
Church of United Hietborn in Oregon,
and who was a memlier oi the leglsla
tore from Marion county lu 1H',)7, was
asked yesterday concerning the
Ilourue hoitdqii irters in tbe Kl Iridgo
blockg at Salem during that meiiior
able session, and if he had read the
anonymous circulars put out making
diverse and sundry libelous charges
against Mr. Ilourue. lie icplled:
"Vim 1, had rend them. While in
Sulem during that winter 1 stopped
at the headquarters, in fact lived
there, and had every importunity to
know nil that went on, and 1 say tu
you and your readers that tbe allcga
tlons contained in mono anonymous
circulars are simply the muligmiu
emanations of malicious men. They
bare not even the shadow of truth in
them. There was no dissipation of
any character whatever, and certainly
no questionable women were ever seen
there by me, nor did 1 ever hear ot
tin one or two occasions a coin
mittee from the W. 0. T. U. visited
tbo headquarters seeking coiitrilm
tious to soino charitable eject, but af
ter similar reports to the present ones
had lieen Industriously clioulated, an
upon one or two other oco, sious gen
tlemeii brought their wives there to
dinner. The hollowness and malice
of such charges as are contained in
these circulars are apparent when so
her decency stops to think that the
men who congregated there as well as
those who lived tbeie were for the
most part men of families nud were
and still are respectable mon in the
communities whole they reside. 1
am glad to make this statement to tbe
people of the state, not only in the
interest of my own good name, hut
in the interest of tbe good name of
the other bundled or more men who
were visitors there, and dually in jus
tice to Mr. Ilourue himself, who is
outrageously maligned. It is rrnnei
that I should also state that 1 am not
altiluited with the Republican party,
nut am opposed to it and Us ticket,
A sense of justice as well as self re
spect impels mo to brand the charges
contained in those circulars as mali
cious falsehoods and their authors and
utterers as malignant cowards,."
Charge False, Says W, S. l''Htn.
Hon. W. S. U'Ken. who was a mem
her of the legislature from Clackamas
county in lN'.b, in reply to a question
as to the character of Mr. Hourue's
guests and entertainment lu Salem

moiis charges recently circulated, an

they are false. 1 was in and about the
headquarters once or more almost
very day and night during the ses

lute women were there at all, or that
there was drunkenness or dissipation
there in any form, is absolutely un
true. A large number of the mo.-t

"These men are some of the wit

only possible teparation that can be

Absurd and Untrue.
Edgar R. Piper, managing editor of
The Morning Oregouiaa, said:
"1 was in Salem during the legisla
tive sessions of 18J7, 1901 and liXXl as
the repreaentative of The Portland
Oregonian, and was s very frequent
night and day visitor at Mr. Jonathan
Hourne, Jr. 's, heaquarters. If, as
has been alleged, there had been dis
reputable conduct on the part of those
who were entertained by Mr. Hourne
it could hardly have escaped my no
tice, i saw no dissipation of any ki id
during either of the sessions named
on the part of those whom I met at
the headquarters; witnessed no con
duct uu becoming gentlemen, and cer
tainly saw no questionable women, or
suspicions thereof, in or about his
headquarters. The charge that his
headquarters were a 'harem,' or that
there is tbe slightest foundation in
truth upon which to base such an alle
gation is absurd aud untrue."
Serious and Orderly Men.
Hon. Frank Williams, a memlier of
the State Commission of the Lewis
aud Clark Pair, in speaking of the
unsigned slanderous circulars Issued
about Mr. Hourne and his headquar
ters at Salem during the holdup of
IHU7 says that he went to Salem at the
beginning of tbe session in 18U7, aud
also during the sessions of 18!t and
UKH, for tbe purpote of working la
the interests of the fciihmisslon of the
In tiative and relereudum amendment
to tbe people. He says that during
tbe eessidu of 1 h'.J7 he roomed in the
Eldridge block aud spent a great deal
or time in the Uourne headquarters,
both during the day and evening, and
knows from personal knowledge that
mere were no dissolute women or
other forms of dissipation there. He
says: "I never saw amor serious and
urdeily body of mon. In fact, the
contest was so bitter aud nerve-trying
that a dissipated man could not have
sustained it. In this connection it is
well to renieinlier that every one of
die men who frequented those head
quarters is still an honorable and re
"Simply Campaign Lies.''
John C. Young gays: "I have read
tbe anonymous circulars alleging
ulrerul things concerning Mr. Hourne i
headquarters at Sulem during tbe
wiutei of M)7, aud of my pergonal
Knowledge Know they are false. 1
was out and in at his headquarters at
all hours of the night and day, and
fiequently took meals there. There
was n i intoxication, no boisterous or
other conduct unbecoming gentlemen.
aim i nevt-r saw nor neuru ot any
women of questionable character in
or about the building. The charge
was at that time made that the Hourne
headquarters were a 'harem,' where
riotous orgies held sway, but the
scoies of men who were constant visl
tors at, or regular sojourners in, the
nwriii place regarded them with oou
tempt, as being too silly and too ab
surd to merit serious notice. They
are simply campaign lies.'
"Respectable and Decorous."
Hon. George W. Patterson, who was
ionic state senator from Tillamook
Washington and Columbia counties at
tbe legislative cession of 18i)7, and
who had rooms in the Kldrblge block
in Salem on the same Hour with tbe
Ilourue headquarters, says:
"1 was familiar with the situation
was a frequent visitor in tbe Hourne
headquarters; knew many.of the men
wno congregated mere, and at no
time night or day, was there auy in
toxieatiou, carousing or conduct in
the least unbecoming gentlemen and
good citizens. 1 saw no women In or
about the headquarters night or day.
and certainly none of questionable
character. Had there been snob the
fact could not have escaped general
notice aud comment, for the place was
open to an comers, iilgnt and day.
1ie headquarters were at all times
eminently respectable and decorous,
as tar as i Know.
John (Jill's Statement.
John Gill, the Portland bookdealor.
who was a member of the session of
UKI.1, says: "I visited at the Hourne
headquarters a number of times dur
ing the session of l'.Hi;!, sometimes by
iiiviiaiiou and sometimes uuexpeoted-
lu eacn instance 1 was acooni
pained by one or more companions.
wo were at tbo quarters at meal times
and dined at Mr. Hourne s table, and
were sometimes tliere lu the evening,
where we met many members of the
legislature. At no time did 1 see anv
drunkenness or improper conduct of
any kind, aud 1 believe loan say with
me uuiiosi continence that there was
not a woman about the place."
