(Oregon la n. )
Wo think it can bo said with cer
tainty that thn voting in no stale him
ever been co eccentric hh that, in Ore
Kou IiihI Monday. It shows that many
thoiiHandrt of Iwcpuhlirans voted at ut
terly croHH purpoHi-H with each other;
ami moreover, that each voter of
many thoiiNauds made up his own bal
lot at utterly cross purposes with him
self. Hern Is a state In which Ilepuldi
ciiiih, or men who call themselvi-H
such, aro a grout majority, not let-s
than three fifths of tho whole elector
ale. For candidates on whom they
did agreo they havo thrown 25,0' JO
to :in,ouo majoilty. Vet they have xlv
en the Democrats thn governor and
have thrown but a burn plurality for
the lU'publicatl CHlididato for the
United States Senate, ut tho same
time voting with Hindi unanimity for
members of tho legislature that the
Democrat havo not a single member,
mil of sixty, iu the House, ami but
six in thn Senate, one of whom is a
A multitude of llepublicuiis, for
reasons purely personal to themselves,
or upon considerations of merely sel
fish character, voted for the Demo
cratic nominee for Oovernor, rather
than for a man of excellent lltness
and character, who, though tho ltc
puMicaii candidate and nominated
under a primary law which assured en
tire freedom from bosses, combina
tions or machines, was not their ouu
particular "man" for tho place; and
therefore they preferred a Democratic
(iovernor to u Itcpuhlicuu not of their
own choice or faction. Tho thought
was, "If wo cant' havo it, let it go to
the Democrats. "
Again, a multitude of Kepublicuns
voted HKaiust Hourue for Senator, not
IsH-aiise they expected or desired a
Democratthough some of them
would, since tliey couldn't have their
own "man"; but they wautdto beat
Kotirnn Ix-fore the people, and throw
tho contest into the legislature, w here
they would have o chance to juggle it
up, and mayhap get a Senator who
would respond to their own selfish in
terests or demands. At tho same time
a Kc publican legislature was neces
sary, or there would lie a Democratic
Senator; so these persons who helped
to beat Hourue yet wanted u chance
for their man, or a chance to make
sale of the oftlce, voted so solidly
everywhere for the Kepiiblican candi
dates for tho legislature, that wo
have the unexampled result of but six
Democrats in that body, mid not a
single one in the House.
Work of this kind, with its restillts,
shows tint extent to which factional
spirit exists in the Kepublicuu party
oi iircgou. li is tho direct conse
quence of factional work heretofore,
under the leadership of one or an
other, living or dead, whoso contests
havo racked and divided the party,
and planted within it, permanently, it
seems the habit and practise of work
ing politics for personal and seltl.-h
interests, rather than from any con
sideration of tho public wolfure. All
know how this hubit was introduced
into our politics and who did it. The
abuses that pioceed from this action
havo led to results here not witnessed
in any other state. These factional
contests have produced the initiative
and referendum, tho direct primaries
and Statement No. 1 measures point
ed at as occentricitios and "fuds" by
people iu other states, but adopted as
remedies for the excessive abuses and
corruptions hied iu Oregon by these
low and Hellish viows of politics, and
by the degrading methods employod
to support them.
A higher view of the ojeefs of po'lt-
ical action is the necessary cur". A
common expression is. "1 11 not
voto the ticket; hero is nothiug iu it
Torino." o doubt U there is an
other electorate in tho United States
so deeply corrupted. It extends
equally to tho Democartio party and
similarily through it; for this party
also has had its full share iu the gen
eral corruption, and many times wheu
Hepublicaus havo revotled Democrats
have suppliod their places aud carried
the lU'publclau bosses through. Of
these operations the debauched and
degraded condition of politics in Ore
gon Is the natural and legit imate re
sult. Men do not gather grapes of
thorns nor figs of thistles.
Uoads are getting line now all over
the county. Somo complaint is heard
of portions of tho road between hero
and Warner, but all roads aro iu a
condition now to receive substantial
work which w ill put thorn 'u excellent
shape for the season.

A Breeder of Socialism.
Corruption in government is the
surest breeder of socialism among the
For all but a few persons whose
mental operations are eccentric, the
ideas of state socialism represents on
ly harmless intellectual vagaries. liut
disgust and despair of present institu
tions may lead many minds generally
sane to entertain tho idea of new gov
ernment experiments which seem
harmless and prom.'te to be helpful.
The cult of socialism has grown
mightily on the exposures of cor
ruption in government and business
made in the last few years. The lat
ets news of land indictments iu Ore
gon suggests a concrete example of
Long before the campaign of expos
ures begcin, public attention was
drawn to the curious development of
socialist ideas in Oregon. That pros
perous state, where the average stand
ard of public intelligen-e is per
haps the highest on the Pacific coast,
seemed the peculiar fad and vagary.
Oregon was the first state to adopt
the initative and referendum. It
pushed the direct primary father than
any other. It has tried singular ex
periments with the extreme idea of
prohibition. It is always toying with
woman suffrage not as an end, but as
a means of moral reform. Here are all
the signs of a community so disgust
ed with the results of government as
it is that the people are willing to try
almost any political nostrum as a rem
edy for them.
In the last few years the Federal
Courts bave revealed the seed of
socialism in Oregon. Its whole public
service has been honeycombed with
corruption. IU Federal land offices
have been debauched by specualtors
to rob the people of their heritage.
The contagion has spread to state
courts, legislation and administration
in touch with them. Municipal gov
ernment has 1 -en made an agency of
private profit at public expense.
Stata..vi!j4 ha-e been bought
and sold like cattle.
When the day of reckoning came
three out of four of the Oregon mem
bers of Congress were indicted for fel
ony, and have escaped punishment
only by death and the law's delay.
Whole business communities have
been ripped up by grand juries, and
extradition officers have ravaged other
states for accomplices. There is no
effect without a cause. Here is the
cause of socialism in Oregon.
More Land Restored.
The Secretary of tho Interior has
ordered that the following lands with
drawn from settlement under the rec
laniatiou act be restored to the public
domain, to become subject to entry 90
days after proper notice by the de
Malheur project About 534,120
acres, lying in townships 13 to 20
south, ranges 41 to 47 east.
Chewaucan project Township 31

Investigations in connection with
the Silver Creek project have been
carried to a point where it is deemed
advisable to restore to entry all land
not necessary to the development of
the project. The Secretary of the In
terior has directed that the following
land, title to which has not passed out
of the United States, be immediately
restored to settlement : Township 24,

IN VACANT HOUSE,
Nothing Left But Bones
and Cooked Lungs
To Tell Story.
CAME FROM SEATTLE. WASH.
Man Seen Traveling Afoot Believ
ed to be Victim of Tragedy
In Crooked Creek.
Last Thursday evening J. C. Ahls
trom received a telephone message
from the Chandler ranch In Crooked
Cieek valley stating that a man had
been burned up in one of the old
bouses on the ranch and requesting
him to notify the coroner. Mr Ahls
trom and Coroner Harris went out that
evening and reported that the charred
trunk and skull and parts of limbs of
an unknown man were found in tho
ashes of what was once the house
where Mr. and Aire Chandler, father
and mother of Mr. S. B. Chandler,
lived several years ago. The old house.
was pretty badly delapidated, not hav
ing been occupied for several years.
The windows and doors and part of
the wall was gone, but the delapidated
structure had evidently offered shel
ter for a weary traveler on Wednesday
night, who bad, from all appearances,
cooked his supper on a stone hearth
where once had been a fireplace. A
frying pan, coffee pot and a tin cup ,
were all that was left of the man's
camp outfit, and they were on the
large flat stone hearth. From tho
position of the body the man had
made his bed down, for tho undes
turbed ashes of bedclciV.ig could be
seen, near the lire-place, in one corner
of the house, and evidently slept till
he was suffocated before arousing,
when he must have raised up and fell
toward the hearth, as his head lay In
that direction. The body was nearly
burned up and nothing left of the
limbs but bones. The remains were
brougt to the I. O. O. F. cemetery
and buried Friday.
A man about 35 years of age, of
rather slim build weighing about 135
pounds, slightly lame in one leg, rath
er light complexioned, with short
beard wearing a light colored coat and
blue ovrealls, worn out at the knees,
carrying a roll of bedding the outside
piece being an old store comforter
and some cooking utensils in a sack,
passed the Loveless place Wednesday.
He stopped at the house and cut some
wood for a meal, and was seen to pass
the Meyers place a little later, and
still later was seen at the watering
trough on the Chandler grade. One
of Chandler's ranchmen also see a
man of similar description walking
along the road late in the evening
near and in the direction of the old
house. It is supposed that this is the
mau who met his fate in the old
house. A stranger, in a strange land
homeless and alone, tired and sleepy,
and possibly sick, laid down to sleep
aud rest and was burned to death by
his own camp fire. The man no doubt
had relatives, who will never know
what became of him, and the people
here will probably never know who the
man was that burned to death la the
old Chandler bouse.
Further investigatins by The Exam
iner toward the identity of the man
brought out the fact that he had came
from Seattle, where he had worked in
the logging camps. He had also work
ed about Spokane. Ie said he had
come from that country this spring,
but had been down in Californa.
Wool Market, Dull.
There is little change in the wool
situation since our last issue. Bailey
Si Massingill have bought a little more
at 20 cents. The market seems to be
just a trifle sbuky the past few days,
several clips being refused at 20 cents.
Noue has been bought for loss, how
ever, and it is hoped that the price
will not drop below that figure.
The Shauiko sales were not so brisk
as last year's sales, the price ranging
one to two cents under those of last
year. The Baldw in Sheep &Land Co.,
who have a flue grade of wool and in
the neighborhood of 200,000 pounds,
received the highest price, 23 cents,
but the rest of the clips brought fig
ures around 21 cents.
