Saturday night at Hotel Portland
one hundred and fifty prominent Re
publicans banquettcd with Hon. Sol.
Hirsch, chairman of the Republican
state central committee of Oregon.
Hons. Chas. W. Fulton, of Astoria,
presided. Speeches were made by the
chairman, Sol. Hirsch, B. Hermann,
Senator Mitchell, and Harvey Scott
and others made speeches.
The occasion was strained and Edi
tor Scott was the only speaker who
attempted anything humorous. The
rest dodged burning questions, eulo
gized the Democrats and Grover
Cleveland. Harvey Scott was to speak
of the press but gave It up as a tick
lish subject. His one sentence: "The
proceedings are rather grave tonight,"
gives the keynote to the melodramatic
scene, juen assembled in a social
gathering, with long knives in their
sleeves to cut each others throats.

A great deal of lutorest is shown
concerning the organization of the
lOtli legislative assembly, and there
are several aspirants in the field
both for president of the senate and
tpeaker of tho house.
In the senate there are now three
candidates for the presidency of that
body. These are; A. J. Johnson of
Linn county, I. L. Patterson of Mar

of the lattor than either of his com

Editor .Touunal.--I was pleaded to
secThe nrtlclc fn your paper of Thurs
day evening calling attention to the
real cause of damage by high water
to residents living ahmg and adjacent
to Nortli Mill creek. An attempt
seems to be being mndc to divert "at
tention from the prime cause, the
levee built by the state along Mill
creek last summer, to the dam and
race of the Mill company. While
this latter.pcrhaps should be changed
somewhat, the dam lowered and a
much larger culvert placed under the
race between Liberty and High
streets, to take of! the water backing
up at that point, yet all who hnvo
lived along North Mill creek for any
length of time know that a dam has
been In that creek for many years
that heavy rain storms as heavy as
the one just passed have occurred
heretofore, yet never has the water
gotten anything like as high as it
has this time. People living far up
the creek boyond the influence of the
dam know what hurt them. Mr. Gar
reston is certainly aware that it was
not the dam or mill race that helped
carry his barn, located between Eigh
teenth and Nineteenth streets from
its foundations. Every one knows also
that the attempt to put In one
channel the water, that it has always
taken many channels to carry away,
is going to make trouble unless that
one channel Is greatly enlarged,
which has not been done in this case.
It is said the water still came down
tbe north creek strong after the levee
was broken; true, but there was still
left and is now a whole lot of enbank
ment to turn a whole lot of water
from its original course. It certainly
would seem to be an outrage that tho
state has allowed Itself to be worked
by private parties who have bought
laad for ,a mere song (an old creek
bed) to Improve that overflowed land
to divide the material course of the
water and turn it onto goad property
that has never been known to over
flow before. It would also certainly
seem that the next legislature should
pay the damages caused by thus di
verting the flow of Mill crctk.

"The School of Politics" shows that the corrupted primary is the political crime of tbs
Nineteenth century, and that reforms in city, state and national government are out of ques

The little book then lays bare the methods of the bosses from New York to California,
showing how, under laws made ostensibly to protect the people, they have legalized their
fraudulent methods. s
The practical working of the primary in city politics is shown up in our principal West
