A "Repnblicaa" Who Is the Victim
of His Misapprehension.
Editor Statesman : '
' Although I am over. 43 years of age
and therefore not allow ed the privi
leges of a V Young Republican," I
till have an interest in the success of
Bepublieanisrn, - and presumed not bar
red from making a. few suggestions if
I make them with the deference that
should ehaaeterize atr old ' has been ' '
and not too 'PPh' about it. f
With many, others of the Statesman
readers I -have-, been, disappointed at the
stand you have taken against Mr.
. Hermann. . I cannot understand what
Marion eountyan gain by his defeat.
Although in this morning 'a issue yon
org jsiarion county to send a solid
delegation to the convention for Mr.
Harris, you say very truly in another
; column that " the principal 1 interest
Marion eounfy has in the contest, out
side of securing an efficient and. worthy
candidate, is the United States Indian
Training School at Chemawa." This
come just after Mr. Hermann has suc
ceeded in pushing through . the House
the largest appropriation for the sup
port of the Chemaws School 'that it
-ver received in its history. Now then,
within two weeks after this work is
done, Marion eonnty is asked to show
its appreciation of the favor by join
ing in the clamor to drive him out of
Congress.' What . would Mr. Harris
think of such treatment if the situation
was reversed, and what would any
constituency have the right to expect
front anybody, after showing such a
spirit! Mr. Harris may bet and prob
ably is, a good man. Like every new
eandidate, he is heralded by his friends
as a prodigy, but his nomination would
be an experiment, and we think no man
can explain very clearly what the dis
trict would gain by a change at this
time. At any rate, Mr. Harris did not
show good judgment in his criticism of
"Mr. Hermann which was recently bub-
' i:.k..i : l- i -tt! .
tiiwcu iu ;uui cuiumus. jug excuse xor
not supporting Mr. Hermann, as he. did
one 'year ago, is not sustained by the
records. Tbwre is not a particle of ev
idence to show that Mr. Hermann has
lost any of his' old time influence, and
very well informed man knows that
his position is stronger today than it
was then. , It- was not expected by any
oaa'that either he or Senator Mitchell
would at once get their old committee
assignments, but they. will get them
again sooner than any new man eould.
Congress" has .been in session, since
Hermann was elected, barely four
months, yet he has secured the Chema
wa appropriation, and given evidence
ia other ways, that he is sustaining the
old time reputation he had when Tom
Bed declared that he would have to be
constantly watched ' to keep him from
depleting the National Treasury in his
demands for appropriations . for Ore
gon How much more do the enemies
of Mr. Hermann think they could have
accomplished in the past four months f
Less than one year ago, when Mr. Hcr
mann was a private citizen, Marion
county asked for the nomination of I a
"young man," At that 'time Lane
county had no use for a "young man"
wbo did not hail from Lane county.
Today no man from Marion : county
could get the support of Lane county
for Congress, yet we are asked to throw
Uowa a. man -who has just shown his
abilityand Ins-di? position to do 5 some
thing Mari bounty for one who
Jess than a year ago had an opportunity
to favor Marion county and scernfnllv
refused to do it. At that time they di'd
not have the slightest use f pt us.
In every essential ! sense Mr. Her
man xs just as young a man as his op
ponesUHe is in. sound health and the
prime, of life. Back of 'that he has
twenty years jf experience with public
men in Washington, and with the work
and! methods of the departments. No
man lm the district ia capable of render
ing ps more efficient service. - : . ,
j One 'of the strongest arguments t in
favor of the retention! of Senator Mit
chell at Washington is his long period
of publie service. The same argument
applies with equal foree to Mr. Her
mann. , . ' '.. .:

that an official has been extravagant or
wasteful in expenditures, or expended
money unnecessarily, his record must

continuance in office. '

Editor Statesman: ! !
I clip this from your evening
"The Journal pleads guilty to hajr
ing fought the newspaper battles, of
factions in the past, buts cannot see
where any reasonable amount of good
has been accomplished." ! -f-
Why, good has come to it all the way
from four bits to five hundred dollars,
from bleeding candidates ever since the
Iowa Wbofor set foot in Oregon.
It Is Rumored That the City laws
, j -(From Tuesday's Daily.)
Editor Statesman: j
There seems to be j considerable jug
gling of figures just now relative to the
county finances, tax levies, etc. It is
said that figures do not lie, but my ob
servation is that t figures are no more
truthful than the 'man who manipulates
them, lax Payer says he paid more
taxes on a levy of 4.6 mills than when
the levy was 11.2. jTbis may be all
true, and still not be all the truth.
The - matter under consideration is con
fined to the county levy of taxes. Tax
Payer does not say what school district
his property is assessed in, and which
may add greatly to the amount of his
taxes without any responsibility at
taching to the- county officials. . Then,
again, there may have been an appre
ciation in the assessed value; of .his
property which would have further in
creased the amount of his taxes.
The writer hereof owned property in
a rural district upon which he paid
more than double the amount of taxes
for the levy of 1902 than he had ever
paid before, or than the levy has been
since, and on practically the same val
uation. But the county judge was in
no wise responsible for that, j The sud
den and exeessivV increase was caused
by a special levy in' the school district
for the purpose of paying off a bond
ed indebtedness. The fact is, the aver

lias Salem forgotten that it is great
city, and that stringers' are not only
within her
are coming f
directed to,different parts of the town,
so they may finally reach their given
point! "r i
When this papeV first agitated the
matter of numbering the" buildings ia
this city, away back Jn 1886 or ,1887,
and finally indneed the council to take
action in the; matter, an attempt was
made to get the city fathers to adopt
the one hundred-to-a-block method, but
for reasons of the purest economy the
eonncil finally decided on forty numbers
to the block. This waa' because, if the
former method were adopted, they ar
gued, there would be so many numbers
unused. : ' ! ' -: '
The town bas-ontgrown the old condi
tions, however, and while it would
probably be difficult to induce some of
our good pioneer citizens to do without
sueh good names as "High,' ''Win
ter' and "Summer," let the council
find" some ether place to locate these
good old names, and number the streets
from Commercial street east, say mak
ing Liberty "Third," and so on and
then finally accept the Statesman's
former good advice and adopt to the
hundred-to-a-block system. By . doing
this one could find his jray about; even
though not "to the manner born."
The names taken sway from the old
streets might be applied to relieve the
pressure on "Division" and 'Oakr"
which do duty on two parallel streets
in tbe city. It might be possible thus,
also, to avoid some confusion now and
forever. t v' V
The council named a committee some
weeks gone hence to "look into':', this
matter, but whether they are awaiting
a telescope of proper strength for the
purpose, or why, no report of their in
vestigations in the matter .have yet
beh produced in an audible tone ' of
voice in the Hall of Fame known as tbe
Council Chamber. The Statesman is
led to trust, though, that with this mild
suggestion and reminder, : something
may be done in the matter.
