"WASHINCJTON, March 7. Tho news
of tho demonstration's against tho
United States consulate at Valencia
by tho Spanish mob stirred no resent
ment whatever among tho members
of tho house, and caused scarcely any
comment. Chairman Illtt, of tho
foreign affairs commlttco, remarked
that the action of tho Spanish gov
ernment In closing two universities to

condemnation of hostile demonstra
tions against tho United ,Ststcs.
Tho state department has not yet
been Informed officially of tho re
ported stone-throwing at tho Ameri

Tho government will not speak out
daily, but tho highest authority Is
given for the statement that tho
Venezuelan government refused to
pay tho indemnity, declaring that the

Salem School Election.
Orcgonlnu, March 7. (Salem cor
A school director or tho Salem dis
trict will bo elected uoxt Monday,
Tho candidates aro Dr. W. II. Byrd,
tho present Incumlient, and William
Chcrrlugton. Dr. Byrd is a Demo
crat and Mr. Chcrrlugton Is a Repub
lican. Mr. Cherrlngtoii Is Bald to bo
a member of tho American Protcctivo
Association, Dr. Byrd Is not. Ah tho
time of election draws near, tho lines
are bcl rig drawn and tho forces mar
shaled on both sides.
A redeeming feature Is the fact that
no bitter personalities nro resorted to
by cither side. No personal objections
worth noting are heard against
cither candidate. Both aro reputable
men. Neither Is offensively partisan
politically. Politics will not lie a
dominant factor In Monday's election.
Mr. Chcrrlugton will doubtless rc
cclvo the A. P. A. vote to tho full
extent that organization can control
tho voteH of Its HKMiilwrH. Tho fact
that Mr. Chorrlngton represents the
A. P. A. and Dr. Byrd does not kcI
forth tho Issue, nnd the vote will
practically decide tlio strength of the
A. P. A. In Salem, What tho voting
population of Salem Is is very uncer

Highest of all in Leavening PowerLatest U.S. Gov't Report
A SCHOOL ELECTION,
Reply to tho Letter Printed
BY "FRIEND 0FSCH00LS"
Groat Interest Shown in Monday's
Editor Jeurnal: Your paper last
evening contained an artlclo signed by
n "Friend of Public Schools," which
Is ono of t'io most unjust and unkind
attacks on ono of our very best citi
zens. It Is written in the Interest of
Dr. Byrd for school director; but If
such scurrilous, misleading state
ments, made In tho spirit of mRllce,
tilled with venom, and foisted on tho
pcoplo in the namo of tolerance, cau
assist In perpetuating a man In office,
then human nature must have greatly
changed. Tho dnys when voters wero
swayed with such "pressure" aro past,
It Is to bo hoped.
Tho letter opens with an extract
from tho Orogonlnn, attacking the A.
P. A. Now, whllo this has nothing to
do with tho question at Issue, It
should bo remembered that tho Ore
gontan has for two years past conven
iently lashed soveral political ele
ments in print, whllo Its henchmen
havo, under various pretexts,
"worked" tho samo pcoplo to "stand
In" for Its deals. That samo crowd
has regularly tried, nnd to somo ex
tent succeeded, In hoodwinking both
tlio A. P. A. and Catholic vote.
Tho statements In regard to Mr.
Cherrlngtoii being tho candidate of
any order, or that money is being put
up to elect him, In false la toto.
Dr, Byrd will not gain votes by this
method of deception on tho part of
his friends. Do tho voters of school
district No. 21 want to trust n man
who employs such dovlces for his ele
Ono chargo Is mado against Mr.
Chorrlngton that ho must needs ac
knowledge, viz., that ho has not lived
hero ns long as Dr. Byrd. Many oth
ers who nro good citizens have not.
But this Is no Bin, for by coming
among us and making his homo here,
Mr. Chorrlngton has shown that ho
has faith In our city and Is Interested
In its welfare. Ho does not dopend
upon tradition for his standing as a
man, but carries respect with him
wherever ho goes. Ho is a clean
handed, successful business man.
Tho report Is being falsely circulat
ed that Mr. Cherrlngtoii Is In favor of
moro extravagant methods In tho ad
ministration of Echool nffulrs. None
but a fool would bcllovo this, yet tho
samo persons who nro favoring Dr.
Byrd, persist In circulating this state
ment, when they know It is not true.
Thoy nro tho Bamo men who circulat
ed tho statement that Mr. Byrd had
given his own personal note to sccuro
money for the maintenance of
our schools. This they found
to bo too ridiculously false,
and tho gentleman was compelled to
acknowledge that such was not tho
caso. Wisdom would dictate that all
similar misrepresentations bo with
drawn, yet they jwrslst In peddling
them from pillar to post. Will the
voters hnvo their eyes blinded by this
dust or deceit?
Tho charge of Intolerance Is made,
and of nrraylog man against man,
and this "Friend of Schools" even
goes so far as to my Mr. Clierrlngton'ft
uaucldacy Is uii-Anicrlcnn, If ever
an effort was made to array citizen
agulust citizen It Is tho letter of this
very correspondent, nnd if over an un
Americanism was perpetrated it is in
the attempt to prevent the citizens of
School District No. 21 from having
moro than one candidate for school
What I have said above Is not only
as a friend of tho puhllo schools, but
A Friend Op Justice.
