Tfca Capital Journal did not have
anything to do with calling tho
"mam" eaavealion, but can see tin
wrlOM objection to Republicans
getting together.
A mass convention cannot nhango
he exliltlng laws, and the candi
dates it "AiiRgoHln" will havo to go
tipon tho regular1 primary olcctlon
ballot tho same as any other.
Furthermore, the editor of this
paper cannot see that anything will
la gained by suppressing discussion
of guy Issuo In tho Republican party.
Republicans opposed to nny feature
of tho direct primary law have a
right to bo heard,

Wo bollevo wo volco tho ssntlmont
of tho pooplo ganornlly when wo Bay
that In the main tho peoplo npprovu
the direct primary lawB of Orogon,
or 8omo slmllnr law whlohtnkos tho
nomination of candidates out of the
handa of tho professional politicians.
And yet thoro nro many fonturos of
tho Oregon law whloh are both cum
bcrsomo nnd cxponslvo nnd distaste
ful to many men, nnd tho result Is
often tho bent men and those qunll
lied for oflloo will not ullow their
nnmcB to ho used. It may bo sot
down as a fact that tho undesirable
foaturos which had crcptlnto tho
old convention system wore tho re
sult, not so much tho fault of tho
system as It was tho carelessness of
tho pcoplo In taking llttlo or no In
terest In political matters and allow
ing a fow persons to run things.
Just how Statement No, 1 crept
Into tho primary law In tho ahapo It
did fow aeom to understand. Wo bo
llevo tho mass of tho pcoplo at the
time It was made n law llttlo under

peoplo bollev the matter of electing
of tho United Status senators should
bo ai far rwmovod from tho legisla
ture as possible, nnd they havo
abundant reasons for aurh doilro, as
ovldonced by only too many uxamplre
In Orogon olcctlon of senators. Wo
bollevo that a majority of tho pcoplo
thought tho senatorial feature of tin
primary law was simply that tho Re
publicans would put up ni many
candidates as thoy desired, or as
mauy men as desired to make tho
race would ask for the support of
tholr party at tho primary election,
and tho Hemocrnta would do like
wise, Tho Republican getting tho
hlgheat munbor of votes of his party
at the primary election would go be
fore tho legislature at the endorsed
candidate of his party expressed at
a general primary eleotlou. and that
tho Republican members would be In
duty bound In compliance with the
expressed wish of his party to vote
for him. The same would be true
with tho Democrats. Tho mombora
f that party in the legislature
would support for eleotlon as sena
tor the man of their party who at
the. primary oleottou had received
the popular (indorsement of his par

Only Nine Out of 1000 Inlutbltnnts
In Oregon Havo Died in the Past
War Practically All of Statu In
stllutlon.H in (Jood Sanitary Condi
tion. Oregon's death rato during 1907
was approximately nine In every
1 1000 Inhabitants, according to Dr.
It. C. Yonnoy, accrotnry of tho state
I hoard of health, In his nnnunl re
port, whloh has recently boon com
piled, says a Portland pnpor.
This low rnto Is looked upon as a
romarkablo showing, nnd It Is bo
llovod that It Is not excelled by any
other stnto in tho union.
To a ccrtnln extent tho figures n
his. report nro Incomplete, for th.
ronson that a number of tho coun
ties send no report of their vital
statistics to tho state board of health.
Ad a basis for his figures ho has
j taken tho carefully prepared statis
tics of 14 of the most populous
countlos of tho stnto from whjlch
regular monthly health reports aro
received, and In which tho death rate
would naturally bo larger than In
loss densely populated counties.

Improperly handling tho situation.
Altogether there were 317 cases of
this dlsoase In tho state. He said
thnt this Is tho most easily, controlled
contagious disease and that through
vaccination and quarantine It may bo
(ellmtuatod. He classes the failure
of the Giant county officials in pro
venting tho dlsoao to spread as
gross negligence.
One of every 10 deaths In tho
state was due to tuberoulosls, a total
of 445. Of theie SfiS cases of ty
phoid fever reportod, 103 deaths re
sutled. Thore woro 572 cases of
diphtheria, with C2 deaths; 406 cases
of scarlet fever with 13 deaths, and
1313 of measlsa with 20 deaths.
An Inspection of the stato Insti
tutions during the year by the board
found all except tho state Insane asy
lum and the Weston normal nchool
In good sanitary condition. In re
gard to the former, he deplore tho
taok of good waler supply and of

Uiberoutofils way be soparated from
those not Infected with the dUoase.
He makes the announcement that 20
per cent of the deaths at the asylum
are duo to tuberculsU, and In many
Instances the disease Is contracted
after the patient arrives at the asy
lum. The Wttston normal the board
found to b so overcrowded, poorly
ventilated and lighted and seriously
