THE DEMOCRATIC BANQUET
Certainly, there is no disposition any
where to beirrudce the Democrats all
the ploasura that was Heirs Monday
vight as tbey honored the name of
Thomas Jefferson, liberally partook of
good things that always form a prom
inent tart of a Democratic banquet
and imagined themselves the "guard
ians of the rights of the people." It
wa a harmless pastime snd the as
sumption that Republicans are tyrants
and enemies of thcmsclves( f ) de
ceived no one unless the hilarious par
ticipants were disponed to take some
stock in their own declarations, which
is not at all likely.
In the excess of partisan enthusiasm
Senator Miller, of Linn, declared that
Governor Chamberlain "is the guard
ian of the rights of the people in this
State," though in what respect, or to
what extent, or how, the exuberant Sen
ator could not have said if his life de
pended upon it. As an eloquent burst
of forensic extravagance it was timely
and to the point, considering what was
wanted at that particular banquet, but
the impulsive admirer of the Peerless
Leader from Nebraska could not name
one " right" of the most, ordinary
citizen of, Oregon, that anybody has
undertaken to wrest from him that has
been saved to him by our intervening
Governor. Nobody has wanted to de
prive, our people of their "rights,"
and nobody, therefore, has been ealled
upon to "preserve" them.
Bat the Governor, himself, is re
ported as saying that" the issue today
is the. masses against the classes, as it
was in Jefferson's day." You can al-

ways tell when a campaign is about to J saying that he favored a certain candi
open or a Democratic banquet is under j date presumably, Mr. Hearst. "This
way, by the oracular professions of : is absolutely unjustifiable," he pro
the leading Democrats to be the only J eeeds to say, "by anything I hare ever
friends of "the masses," as they
arc about to be crushed beneath the
iron heels of "the classes." And yet,
if the Governor were requested to draw
a line between these two elements in
Oregon and name' the very , men,' he
couldn't do it in a thousand years.
There are no "elasses" in this country
and no -one knows it better than our
genial Governor. The phrase is as old
as Jefferson's time, and as untrue as it
is old. In his terrific onslaught against
Washington's public policies, Jefferson
was as unreasonable as the Democrats
of 1861-5 were in their shameful at
tacks on Abraham Lincoln for 'his
every public act until the day of his
deatu. The only j saving quality of
these spasmodic bubblings is that those
who utter them do so only for the pass-
rrng effect they will have and give them
no permanent lodgment in their realjment of real neutrality as to proposed -
opinions.
There can be no "classes" in a coun-'
try like ours, where every man can
vote just as he pleases upon every
question that affects his personal wel
fare. It is presumed that by the
"classes" is meant the wealthy por
tion of our people. But when Roosevelt
and Parker supposing it to be Parker
are nominated for the Presidency,
and a Democratic millionaire votes for
I'arker and a Republican millionaire
votes for Koosevelt, how have you! sep
arated the "classes" ; from the
"msasjsf" Admitting that there were
such distinctions among our people,
th "classes" would be utterly power
less as long as we have a government
by parties. One stone mason votesj for
the Republican candidates and another
for the Democratic candidates,
knd,
according to the absurd theory of
Governor, one has voted for
"masses" and the other for
"classes!"
the
ine oovernor woum snow himself a
much better friend of the "masses"
if he would abandon this species!
of
the
demogogy which seeks to establish!
very conditions he professes to abHor
an effort t array the common people
of the country against those mho pave
some wealth, but who, themselves,
divide upon public questions as dd
the
hunmblest voters in the land.
This
smacks of the address of Horatio
8ey-
moitr to the Democratic convention of
New York, in 1863, when he asserted
that unless something were dove at
once to prevent the further usurpation
of power by Lincoln, the last vestige of
liberty would be taken from a helpless
eople, etc., etc'
But the country survived in spite of
the attempts of Lincoln to destrty it,
as f eared bv the Democrats of the
country, and men can; even yet be
found who are exereising their rights
every day, and who were doing soL too,
quite as fully tef ore Governor Cham

all harmful; it is only amusing amus

themselves up to a point where enthus

"AN AHMED NETJTSAXJTY,
In an interview while in New York
last week, Mr. Bryan" expressed con
siderable indignation over what the
papers had quoted him as saying a
few -days , before concerning possible
Democratic candidates for the presi
dency. He was so annoyed at what he
termed a "misquotation" ef what he
had said that he declared himself as
being almost persuaded f to hereafter

ATTEMPTED PRISON" ESCAPES.
The attempt to effect an escape from
the Missouri Penitentiary at Jefferson
City, is another illustration of the fact
that no prison is safe from such out
breaks, neither can the officers know
when such attempt is imminent. The
best and most vigilant officers cannot
alivays prevent the forming of con
spiracies and frequently cannot avoid
their culmination.
For many years the penitentiary at
Jefferson City has had the reputation of
being the best managed prison w the
United States. The etate of Missouri
has been proud of its record. and has
spent hundreds of thousands of dollars
in making it a model penal institution.
All its buildings are of the most sym
metrical ; architecture, made of stone,
and the massive durability of every
thing connected with it impresses the
visitor on every band. The writer was
there a year ago and, by the ' Warden,
was taken through all its departments.
It appeared that the very perfection of
discipline had been reached and that
any breach of it by a prisoner, without
being at once detected, would be utter
ly impossible, :
. In spite of all this, however, the pris
oners af Jefferson City managed to se
crete within the prison walls a quantity
of dynamite weighing - 20 pounds, a
bottle of glycerine, two pistols, cart
ridges and other necessary, accompani
ments of a successful outbreak. Luckily,
the plot was nipped ia the bud, the out- i
break prevented and no lives lost, !
though its successful consummation was'
thwarted only by a hair 's breadth.", j
This serves, to show ;' that "the most;
vigilant watchfulness on the part of
prison authorities t cannot detect tbei
running of a collection of such desper
adoes as are gathered within the walls
of the average penitentiary. In every
prison are a lot of men who are willing
to commit any crime that will promise
to lead to their freedom.. -.While they
are at their daily work their minds are
constantly upon some plan or any plan,
that may contribute to a successful out
break. The taking f life causes no
hesitancy--the object being to effect an
escape, no obstacle is considered for a
moment if it only promises success.
There are scores of Tracy's and Mer
rill's in every state prison, as to their
willingness to - commit murder- m
moment without an v twin re ol eon
science, though few have the nerve that
characterized ,those fiendish, despera
does. :. " ; - "V':-t. ;
The most -unceasing alertness, while
at all times necessary, is never a guar-;
antee against the progress of a eon-! . ' .,'

nal refusal of the Legislature to pro
vide more guards at the institution at
night, in the face of the repeated re
quests of the officials that a continua
tion of sueh carelessness would most
certainly, result inj an , outbreak at
sometime. j ... '
While there is much in the effort to
reform criminals that is commendable,
the silly namby-pamby protests that
sometimes, reach the public ear against
harsh prison discipline should go en
tirely unheeded. Those in j authority
and upon whom rests the : responsi
bility for discipline are well aware that
nothing but the severest of eorporal
punishment will accomplish the desired
end with many criminals. Unnecessary
punishment is never justifiable, but se
vere measures are sometimes indispen
sable as the basis for that, discipline
which must obtain in every prison.
The fact that every penitentiary con
tains a collection of from 300 to 2000
of the worst and most vicious men ' to
.'be found in the state, many of them
ireadv at anv time to commit iany crime .

ceases when they have given expression
to their ex parte judgment.
THE MAN FOB TILE OCCASION.
Democratic' sentiment appears-to be
drifting this week toward Judge Par-
year, j Of course, this may change next
? week;j but at present he seems to be in
'the lead as the whirling eddy goes
arounu.
And he fllls'tB requirements to a
dot. 'lie is represented to be "a re
spectable gentleman who represents
ef-Vnothinz in ' particular." What more
has made no record, and, therefore,
who has offended nobody.
Mr. Bryan will support no one who
did not support him, and the men thus
publicly ostracised by him every day
in Itis public utterances will not be dic
tated to by his iron clad requirements
as the , self -constituted dictator of the
Democracy. The man for the hour and
the emergency, appears to be Judge
Parker, of New York. No one knows
what he thought Of free silver or any
other question in 1896, or what his
opinion of them at thi tim mav lx
He is undoubtedly the most available
man to be fouid anvwhere for the Dm-

ASTOBIA.
The Portland Telegram of the 4th
inst., gives extended space to a consid
eration of the many advantages of As
toria as one of the growing cities of
the Northwest with a promising future
before it, and, not desiring: to spoil a
good story, by correcting its statement
tEat it is "the second city in the
state," the Statesman wishes to add its
mite to the exploitation of Astoria's
many'eharacteristics which commend it
to the favorable consideration of new
comers. .

nrodneo "in the future. Located at the
mouth of the -Columbia river, it 4will
for all time bethe center of the fishing
industry of the Northwest, and, under
the rare of. the state as now regulated,
the salmon canning business will be
come one of the. greatest revenue pro
ducers contributing to the general pros
perity of the people. -
The immense forests . suitable for
merchantable lumber which are tribu
eary to Astoria will also guarantee an
enormous shipping business for that
city i for years to come, and which at
this time is in its infancy. In addition
to this, is the fact that as a dairying
district it cannot be surpassed, the
country adjacent to Astoria being ca
pable of a development ' beyond the
dreams of those who have given little
thought to this question. The time is
coming when the entire Coast' Moun
tain range will be used for pasturage
and dairying purposes. Those mountains
will not always be mere waste territory.
When the timber is gone the land, even
to the summit and over the divide, will
make excellent dairy and stock farms.
Although Astoria is situated in the
extreme northwestern corner of the
state, its location has its advantages
and its development has but begun, and
while the Willamette valley is the gar-
dea'spot of Oregon, for many kinds of
business, there are other sections with
different environments that are unsur
passed in their particular attractions
for the enterprising home-seeker, who,
no matter what be is looking for, can
find: it somewhere, in all its perfection
in this "this Oregon of ours."
THEN WHAT WOULD EE SAID?"
In yesterday's Oregonian, "F. C.
B.," the identity of whom could be
easily guessed, propounds this poser:
'Suppose the coming atate conven
tion should instructs its delegates to
the National convention to cast their
votes for Theodore Koosevelt, what
wbuldthe Reputdicans of Oregon think
if any of those delegates, should vote
for the nomiaation of ary . other, man
for President f"
, They would perhaps think same as
a great many people did when hundreds
of Republicans in Portia&a refused to
obey the instructions of the Republi
can convention in Multnomah county
in l!KH) and supported many promi
nent Democrats for so i in port ant offices
as Representatives and Senators in the
state legislature. Or as a good many
people, said when, in 1902, several Re
publican members of the legislature
refused to support a Republican for
the United States Senate who had re
ceived not only a much larger ; Vote
from their own constituents'than they
themselves had,, but a majority five
times larger over bis Democratic com
petitor than they had received over
theirs. In politics there are "regu
lars," and then there are "irregulars."
Everybody who possibly can, should
lo bis or her duty toward assuring a
riU1 toue for Homer Davenport upon
lhis v 8a,m nt Monday night.
Homer is a Marion county boy, born
here in 186S, of pioneer parents, and
by his inherent talent, developed under
circumstances of the most unfavorable
surroundings, has made a name for
himself never surpassed in his line in
any country. It is not going far from
a correct statement, it at allj to say
that no citizen or" Oregon is known by
reputation by as many people the world
over today, as is Homer Davenport.
He is as plain and common in his man
ner as when "firing" for his board
on the railroad running from Woodburn
to Hilverton, and is never so happy as
when surrounded by an assemblage of
his old-time Silyerton friends. Ha is
a typical American citizen, than which
nothing higher can be said of any man,
and having produced him, Oregon
should greet his visit here with, all the
pride and enthusiasm that is charac
teristic of Oregon ia as.
The San Francieeo iapers give an
elaborate account of the marriage re
cently in Oakland, of Miss Bessie Yard,
a talented elocutionist. There is noth
ing remarkable about it, however, as
she was sure. sooner or later, to get
there with both feet with one. to spare.
The Albany Herald wants to know
what " the remorseless searching
woman wilt do when she finds her bus
band wearing ' pocketless trousers?"
Let her do nothing. It will serve her
just right. For generations abe has
been wearing trouserless pockets.
The Washington Post says "newspa
pers throughout the country are print
ing a statement to the effect that apple
pie is the favorite at the national capi
tal. It may b tbe most used, but plum
pie. is the most used." As a first class
pun, the foregoing is certainly a peach.
'THE MISSION OP THE MOEMONS.
At Salt Lake on Easter Sunday, the
forty-seventh annual conference of the
Mormon church was opened in the great
tabernacle. Fully 10,000 church mem
bers were there, and President,. Smith
expressed gratification that ao many
were present and that sueh large num
bers had come from long distances.
One of the "Apostles," Francis Ly
man, said,;' We are here that we may
have posterity. We are here that we
may multiply and replenish the earth,''
and a more candid statement of the ob
ject of the Mormon faith has never
been uttered. -Aside from the conten
tion! for plural marriages, there is
nothing peculiar to the tenets of the
Mormon church, that mar not be f oand
ia- many of the other , dinoiainatians
throughout . the country.
Unless the question is viewed from
a purely sensual standpoint there is no
basis for plural marriages except the
one purpose of rearing large families of
children who msy be secured by educa
tion to ; the doctrines of the" church.
Dominated by fanaticism' ifs members
sre possessed with the Conviction that
it is easier to raise children borniii
the faith, than to depend upon the tin
certain methods of converting those of
people who have never seen the gospel
of Mormondora as," revealed,", by Brig
ham Young and ' bis successors. Con
nected with this degrading practice,
however, is as much of, lust as so-called
religious conviction, the latter being
only used as a blind under cover ; of
which to escape the penalty following
the violation of one of the most re
fined regulation of civilization.
"Apostle", Lyman also said i (" When
President Smith stands up to speak we
know God is with him. We know that
the Lord speaks through that man.. It
is the mind of the Lord, the purpose of
the Lord." Of course, every man with
a thimble full of .brains knows that
vrheu President Smith rises to speak be
is no more "moved'-by' the Lord than
was the Holy Roller Creffield, who made
the same outrageously absrird and im
pious declaration. The serious question
is, What are the American people going
to do about it f . President Smith in
terms defied the United States Govern
ment to interfere, with his practice of
polygamy, boldly informing the Senate
committee that he intended to continue
in his polygamous relations and "take
his chances with the law."
, Rcligiousfreedom is guaranteed in
this country,' and. the question is, how
far ran a man go in his headlong viola
tion of all laws of decency and of civil"
izatfon and escape punishment behind
the plea that he has bad a revelation
from God commanding him to proceed
in the path he has chosen? At what
point , can the established authorities
step in and decide that, the assumed
religion is a mockery and a blind? It,
at least, can be safely concluded that
any man who claims to have a revela
tion from God is a crank and, should be
cloaelv watched as a- freak- whose ac
tions and performances are similar to
those, though'of lesser degree, perhaps,
who finally land in the. asylum or the
penitentiary. ' '
There are a good many commendable
qualities about the : Mormon faith,
among them being the attribute of in
dustry, sopported by economy, and that
of attending to their own business and
settling their difficulties, among them
selves without burdening the courts
with them. But the plea that they are
divinely authorized, and even command
ed, .to practice polygamy: through the
agency or a revelation from God is an
abuse of the right of religions freedom
thai should not be tolerated ia this
country. : If a revelation from God is
to be accepted as a lawful excuse for
doing an unlawful thing, then any law
breaker can invoke his ''revelation"
as an immunity from the operation of
any; sort of legal restraint. -
la general ter rrn, the man who re
ceives a " revelation from God to do
anything that is in violation of the es
tablished order of government or of
society, should be watched closely in an
effort to discover what lies behind.
There is reason for believing, however
that the younger Mormons are not giv
en to polygamy and that the power to
receive "revelations" .is not common
among them, if, indeed, it is claimed at
all.; There can be no doubt that the
efforts of civilization in this direction
will ultimately triumph, though the
official denunciation of polygamy s by
the church need not be expected to in
any way change the opinions or the
practices of the Apostles and some
others. -
