And yet, there are Republican pa- j And there is no other' ' question of
pcrs, one or two, at least thou for the iniportanee upon wbie 4o' even sewm to
time being claiming to be' such, wbieh seriOUHy. Oppo9e the rfiepubliean party,
are quite indignant that Democrats sro- 8it0ation simplj-"proves that dur-
uot fwrmitted to participate in Kepub-
liean primaries, vice versa! . -
But why should this right be either
guaranteed or exercisedf Vhat reason
eau bo offered f : As well . might a Ma
son be permitted to cuter an Odd Fel
low's lodge and assiat in r hooting its
offlcers, or a Baptist have a seat in a ,
Methodist eonfercnee and have a vote
on the most important questions.
,And, as a rule, the man who advo
cates tbis theory aa to primary elec
tions would not himself partake of tlt4
privilege. A well-known lteimblican
would not enter a Democratic primary
meeting, nor would a well-known Dem
ocrat, take part iu a Kepublican pri
mary. But there are, no doubt, leading
men. of both parties who would like to
see this practice legalized in order that
voters more or lem obaeurc could !-
used for purposes to their iersonal ad
vantage. .
A Democrat would not go into a Re
publican primary meeting in order to
the moro nearly insure the nomination
of a worthy and strong ticket. Being
a Democrat, bis .mire would prompt
him to assltt in tbo selection of a weal,
ticket, and the .history of primary
meetings where this practice bas been
permitted, proves it to be true.
Tlio better class of Republicans , and
Democrats do not want to participate
in the primary meetings of the opjo
site party, and do not. Imagine Presi
dent Roosevelt going into a Democratic
primary, or Dryan taking part in a Re
publican primary or any other promi
nent Republican or Democrat. It is a
privilege only Wanted by men who feci
no regard for party ties and who. have
no fixed political beliefs.; i
I Of course, if a man ' can be found
who has belonged to all parties' and is
in none, for certain, longer tbaa' from
one campaign to another, there is rea
son for bis believing in the right of in
terchangeable. jarticipation in any pri
ptry niteting he happens to find in pro
grnfl, but the principle is wholly inde
fensifaand should W prevented, as
far as pHniblc, by law. ; .,
. 6ne of the greatest attractioaa to be
seen at the Lewis sal Clark Fair next
year will be the Uberty BeU which
was rung in celebration.af the adoption
of the Declaration of Independence, in
Philadelphia, on the 4tb o'fJuly, 1776.
Thhherlsbed relic of, the great Ameri
ican Revolution waa brought toVPhila
delphia from England in 1752, anckwas
recast in . April and again i a June,
1853, when the well-remembered words
"Proclaim Libsrty t tbtongbont the
land auto all the inhabitants thereof,"
wero cast m its outv'r rim in raised let
ters, quoted from Leviticus, 23, 10. It
waa the first bell ever rung In honor
of the Declarations of Independence,
being so used within ; a few moments
nfler its abptioft bad been seertreil.
For many year it was' ruag on each
ken on the at b of July, 1835, while be-
iag tolled in nremor v-;of Cbicf Justice

oeeurred. in Philadelphia. " ; , -
The Liberty Bell baa be taken to
many Expositions during the past thir
ty years ia various parts of the coun
try, always receiving the most respect
ful bomaje by the people of every city
throogb which it iwaa taken. There
is a patriotic seatisavnt back of the
higti regard ia whieb this old reminder
of the fathers of the Revolution is held
by the people which does them great
credit, and .is second to. none of its
class save the original copy of the Dec
laration of Independence, now on ; 111,
bat,, for; the past f ewf years not for in
spection by the pnbiie, ia the State
Department in Washington. , , , "
; The Uberty Bell baa just vbeea re
turneil to' Washington from St. Louis,
where it was the recipient of as much
reverent attention from the people, or
perhaps'more, tbaa was bestowed! upon
any living .visitor. It is always the
object of great interest to school ehib
dren, and a treat U in store for those
f Oregon wbo may attend the Lewis
and Clark Exposition next year. .
Nothing - so plaialy il!utratvs tbo
fact tbat the Democratic party baa run
its race, so to speak, as the utter help
ueasness of all its meanbers, including
its leaders, to ia . any manner account
for the' eruhing ' defeat that waa its
portion at the late election.: Nobody
has explained it. nor pretends to, from
a Democratic standpoint.
Watterson, "Marae, Henry," has
jtooseveit wkh dm
venomous, not to
sgust and as a
lently in the air,
talk of "reor-
tevt en it should have lcen, never
to be heard of more. ' The country is
in favor of a protective tariff aud has
said so time and again. The people
cannot be made to believe that protee
iB- tne last half-century the Kepubli-
can party bas made a record for un
derstanding the nocd.of -a great eoun-
tr- rikc ours and theB , applying its
ideas to the advancement of its best
interests. It commits' some minor mis-
, takox, but in general,' its Mdicies make
fr progress and substantial betterment
of the people; Tbat is all, and the pco
de have said so.
After all, the Hon. Thomas Taggart,
of Indiana, is able to see further than
some of his political associate. "All
tni talk about reorganization is mere
bosh," said he. "We don't need re
organization at all, but we 'do need
more Ielnoerats., Thomas baa dropped
onto the correct diagnosis.
To show into what atrange errors the
brrt of papers wll sometimes fall, we
quote the following editorial paragraph
from the Pendleton Has Oregon fan:
. "It will not be such an easy matter
to get rid of the local option law. The
people who passed it by the initiative
can ' alone change t or repeal it, by
the referendum, after first securing the
permission of the Legislature to hold
I an election on the law. A lair o
prt3ieu by tne people cannot t toyed
with by the Iiegialalnre. The people
f.loae can change it and they muit have
the consent of the Legislature to put
It to a vote for amendment or repeal.
In order to secure a vote the. people
must petition the Legislature to ermit
such a -vote. The initiative and refer
endum amendment provides that laws
fassed by the people are beyond the
retch of the Legislature, except in
eases where the public health, peace
and safety is involved."
; The singular thing about this para
graph is that it does not contain a sen
ttnee which does not make an Incorrect
statement, save the first one, whieb
says: ,"It will not be an easy matter
to get rid of the. local option law." The
Legislature can repeal the entire law at
"one felt swoop," if it should desire
to commit political hara-kiri, and the
legality of it could never be questioned,
j It is not likely, however, notwith
standing the', boldness with which
Legislative bodies - sometime ' 'disre
gard the popular mandate, that tbe
Oregon Legislature will undertake to
repeal any law which baa been Initiated
and enaeted by tbe popular vote of tbe
people. iJ i -7 ' 1 ' '
8ome amendments may be ventured,
but, the central Idea contained in such
laws will be retained. v It is not safe
to" monkey' with tue people la mat
ters of this character.
The iniportanee , of the school "meet
ing to be held next: Friday evening is
soch that there should be a full attend
ance. Meetings of this character are
too often neglected by those most eon
eerned and tbedctajt of. matters of
deep moment permitted to go by

A in much of its other busiaeHi, fial-
cm' baa jcacavdvot specially aV etisij,
bat a stage in it school affairs where
a new departure is- demanded in tbe
matter of providing fortbe' rapidly in
erea&iag numbers of its school children.
One of the impoitant matters to come
before this meeting will be tbe provis
ion of adequate means for their accomo
dation. .- ' : '. "' '-.' I

mat it aa none, witnout too aumuri ii
its aebool ebildrea iaereasiaz accord
ingly. v Forty years ago, tbe Littlei
Central building was sufScicatly large
to accomodate all the children in the
district who wero not cared for at the
UBiveraityvbat." we ' bad a ; population
then of but 100. , For a- number at
years past the four buildings we have
for school purjwse nave been ample,
but the growth of vthe eity demauJs
more room. Tbis caanot bo hclied,
and nobody wants to object to it.. -
Several af the teachers in the Cast
school haev from fifty to aixty pupil
in their charge, each a number tbat
no teacher can do justice by. Besides,
thi number crowd tbe available pae
for desks and it renders a aebool robnl
more a- afrt of incipient mob,epeeial
ly where the children are small, than an
orderly collection of little students.
Dot this le a question not needing
argument. Provision must be made
for a High School budding. There are
now, during! the first session of oar
lligle Hvl ool, 100 pepils in attendance
every day, with fully a hundred more
ready to enter it within a few months.
The .High riehoot is held at present in
the Kaat building, which aecoants for
tbe crowded condtiou bow prevailing
there. 1 ' - ' ; :' ' 1
And we will need two or three ad
di;ional teachers. We now have three
teachers ia '.the Hljh Heboid, with an
avefago of, more tban fifljr pupllseaeb
a condition: in which n instructor can
do justice either to himself or to those
in attendauee. la Portland there arc
U0 pupil attending the; High Keh'Mii,
and twenty-two teachers Me provided,
making; an average of but thirty-seven
pupils to the teacher, j lu kugene there
ar 2uHI pupil iu the High rtebool, with
eijiht V'Heheis. giving but thirty two
pupils to the teacher. And it might
be added that the wages paid in those
cities are. j much higrcr than tboac at
picseut allowed in Halem.
In ; view of the pressing neeensity
that something be tiouc. it is hoed tbe
taxpayers jwill turn out generally and
take prompt ami favorable action iu
tbe matter, especially since it is re
presented by the Kchool Board that a
new building can be ereeted without

The Portland Journal, under tbe
above beading, makes a good sugges
tion to tbte effect that tho custom of
spreading a)! over the rouulry, every
time tbej Prenident is to take a trip,
the fact that every precaution has been
taken against the jHmibitity of an as
sault l-y s.i.e crazy aiiarehl, slmiil-l
be absolutely di "ntiue'd.
When jit was ainiot'inred that Preni
dent Roosevelt had jnouMt-d to go to
the fct. Louis KxHiii'Ju, no doubt , thore
was a general reminder of tbe. Buffalo
tragedy,; but the President of the Unit
ed State is never to remain away from
any iyblie function by reawm of the
fact that some crank4 might endeavor
to assassinate him. That condition
will never arise in this country, and the
danger jhe may naturally encounter ,hi
this respect should not be heralded
broadcast over the length and breadth
of the land.
Tbe iday before his journey to Ht.
Louis began, tbe news was sent to all
the ner.'pajrf-ra that a gang of anarch
ists bad been active ia that city for
some weekit. bad been ordered
"move on" but were irtill there Fsiday
nigbt. j The dissemination of this char
acter of sensational uews should be dis
continued. As was well aaid by the
Journal, it bat revives in the boaom of
some irresponsible crank recollections
of some former deed - of sssassiaation,
and, mayhap, a desire to repeat tbem
in fact. It should be 4dropjed".
It ia well to take everjr precaution in
8ueheases. Nothing should be negle t-
fcd, bot there should be no more aaid
tiit thaa when a railroad engineer,
before tarting on a hundred mile run,
carefully looks after the condition of
bis eagine in every detail.
Ths President of Jhe United Stales
is perfectly f i co to come and go at will,
with safety, as safety goeaia such ras
es; and tbe fact of possible assassina
tion is not one for general newspaper
comment or dissemination. It should
Ik? "cut out "'of tbelr news columns.'
It is a matter of 'gratifieatioa to

It occurs to the Statesman that the
greatest trust ia the United States

that which the people have inlPresident
