RUSK AND WEST CLASH
Governor Says Majority Choice
Not Proper ay to Nomi
So far as Unal rvnulta ai concerned
tbe recent Legislative asaembly, tbe
first to wbicb all members were chos
en under tbe "Oregon System,
seems to bave been scarcely toe eu.ua!
of tbe worst uadertbe palmy days jof
tbe old convention plan. Politics
were played from start to finish, aud
the Governor himself covered himself
with a crowu of victory in the wou 1-
Eveu tbe Portland Journal, which
atruogly favor tie present method,
seem to be in sore distress, for under
tbe head of "Popgun Statesmanship,"
It relieves itself aftar tbe' following
"Ibe Legislature was looked to for
a good roads system, and tbe Legis
lature by piovidiug such a system
bad an uuparaileled opportunity to
renler invaluable service to tbe state.
But instead, 725 peanut bills were
introduced, and tbe time was spent
in tbeir consideration. Big leglala
tlon was lost sight of iu popgun bills
raising salaiies, creating new official
aud new deputies, chauging game
laws and other trivial matters. Over
200 of these were rusbed tnrougb iu
tbe last 18 hours of tbe aenslou and
tbe result is mad bills so maimed,
marred, backed, batters 1 and buugled
tbat it is scarcely known whether
toey are road bills or a study iu
"llow Id is Aun?"
But, perhaps the most astonishing
fact is that no attempt has thus far
been made tJ lay the lespnusibllity
upon either faction of the republi
can party. Statemeut Oners and
Assembly ites seem to share the bur
den eipually. for neitoer side accuses
the other. Io fact, the biggest low
seems to be with tbe Democratic
Governor, nominated aud elected
under the "Oregon System." aud
dyed-ln tbe-wool Statement X uieu.
And it was all about Speaker Husk's
bill providing tbat candidates must
be either tbe Orst or second choice
of a majority of their party. Io
vetoing tbe bill, Governor West said:
"When tbe men wbo now oppose
'he people's system cease their at
tacks co it and recognize the fact
tbat it is here to say, then will it be
time for the legislature to seek to
improve it," says tbe govetuor in bis
message accompanying the Dill. Tbe
governor says regarding the bill in
tbe veto message :
"It violates sections 1 and 10 of
article II of the constitution of Ore
gon in tbis :
"It seek a to deprive the voter of
bis constitutional right to vote for
one person for nomination under tbe
title to every offi :e where more than
twice aa many candidates for nomi
nation in one political office division
as there are positions to t.e tilled
therein, tin lens he also expresses a
second choice amoug said candidates,
lie may not have a second choice
and tbe legislature canuot, under tbe
constitution compel him to name a
second choice under penalty of losiua
bis cousl itul ioual right tu vote for
t he nominal iuii of one persau.
"But even if the bill wuh not open
to tf.ia CuiiHt itutioual objection, I
should consider myselt bound to vr'.o
it under my pr miss to Die people, of
'Jiegoi in the recent campajun, thai
if elected I wool i not permit auy
tampering with the laws they had ap
proved by tbeir votes. The "Oregon
system" may need amendments, but
so long us it Is attacked as a "-hole 1
atn compelled to stand soliuly on the
preposition that its results are guod
euough t"r the present.
"When meu who now oppose tie
people's sy tern cease their attacks on
It aud recrigni.e the fact that it is
here to stay, then will be time for the
legislature to seek to improve it. '

to embody some tutelar spirit.
The particular virtue attributed to
this gem was the conferring upon the
wearer of "health ami good fortune"

Of multiplying ray expense.
