SHALL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BECOME DISTINC
The visit of President Taft to Oregon raises the whole ques
tion of whether the Republican party shall become progressive
This issue is emphasized by the president coming to Oregon
and by the leadership along progressive lines assumed by the
people of Oregon, wisely or unwisely.
There is no indication that the progressive measures enacted
in Oregon will be repealed, or that Republican leaders will
further oppose the progressive policies.
For be it known Republican leaders have in the past distrust
ed the people's wisdom in enacting these laws, and they have
not warmly supported them.
The Republican party has suffered defeats because its lead
ers sought to repudiate the obligation of accepting verdict3 of
the people in favor of popular reforms.
But that is past history and there remains the right path to
choosfe choose ye this day whom ye will serve the people or
the old machine style of politics.
The people of Oregon have enacted the Direct Primary law,
direct election of senators, direct legislation and the direct re
call of unworthy officials.
The Republican party is founded on the principle that the
majority shall rule, and that the expressed will of the people
shall be its only guide in public affairs.
Those who would repudiate this proposition place themselves
in the position of the southern politicians who repudiated the
verdict of the nation in the election of Abraham Lincoln presi
dent. They have even less ground to stand upon, because Lincoln
was not elected by a majority of the American people he was
a plurality president, so far as popular vote went.
President Taft, in asking re-election at the hands of the peo
ple, will have to meet this issue, and will be judged by the peo
ple of Oregon by the touchstone of progressive policies.
It will not be asked of him that he endorse everything that
has been enacted by the people of Oregon, but he will be asked
to cast his influence for progressive policies in general.
He may differ as to the extent of the application of the recall,
or he may differ as to the wisdom of referring certain matters
to a popular vote for decision.
But on the general principle of a progressive tariff policy, a
progressive financial policy, progressive political measures, like
direct election of senators, or the regulation of corrupt prac
tices at elections, there is no middle ground for the president.
There is no middle ground for the Republican party.
The people have spoken and will speak yet more loudly on
The Republican party in Oregon takes its stand squarely and
firmly and unmistakably for the progressive principles.
The Republican party was warned of this danger when Fur
nish was defeated for governor by a Democrat.
The Republican party was warned of this dangci when Fulton
was defeated for Senator by a Democrat.
The Republican party was warned of this danger when Bow
erman was defeated for governor by a Democrat.
The Republican party is warned again, lest Oregon be carried
by the Democratic candidate for president over Taft in 1912.

proposed commission charter have

time for a thorough examination of

The charter committee was crent-'

cil. Three were chosen by the coun
cil, three by the board of trade, and
three by the lliisliiess Men's League.
They were required to prepare n
commission form charter without
reference to whether they favored
such a form of government or not.

norne of HO odd American cities.

should enlist the support of all who
desire progress In our city govern
ment. True, government is not the
form but the substance, and under
any form of charter you can got good
or bad government; but with a good
form you are more likely to have
The difference between the present
form and that proposed is In the con
trol exercised by the people over the
government. Authority Is removed
from remote placta and plactd In the
full glare of the limelight where all
the people can see what's going on.
The present charter distributes re
sponsibility of government among
15 men and as many more subordi
nates. Power and responsibility Is
so scattered that each man feels that
he Is a more or less unimportant
part of government, and so do the
people. Hence no one in particular
Is watched and the work of govern
ment goes on as a game of benn
No official Is given enough author
ity to do much of anything without
tlrst securing the sanction of some
body else; hence. In order for the
people to exercise compulsion over
an ollkial they must do so through
other officials, and popular control
becomes a delusion and a farce.
The proposed commission charter
vests all tho functions of govern
ment In three men. They stand out
alone as the peoples' representatives.
All other officers and employes are
chosen by and are responsible to
Uiem. Each commissioner Is given
separate departments of public work
to administer and is in supreme and
undisputed control of his depart
ments. It anything goes amiss In the
machinery of government, the finger
of criticism can safely be directed to
one man. The people hold the whip.
The manner of choosing commis
sioners puts the politician entlrelv
out of business. The candidate goes
on the ballot by petition and no po
litical designation or meaningless
verbiage is permitted to accompany
his name. If he stands for anything
he must tell the people In some other
way than by advertising on the bal
lot. He is chosen at one election, a
combined primary and general elec
tion, thus focusing public interest
and insuring a close scrutiny of the
The idea is to simplify elections
and get away from political party in
fluence. I'nder the direct primary
law political parties hold the reins,
but it has this virtue that the choice
of each party is plurality choice of
the party vote, and the candidate
goes on the general election ballot a J
the chosen representative of his par
tv. The proposed charter abolishes all I
party participation in the choice of
officers and simply provides that the
plurality choice of the whole people
be declared the choice of the people
for the office.
There is no span of one month
from one election to another to per
mit combinations and the injection of
a number of alleged independent can
didates to befuddle the public min'l
and scatter the common people's in

Ed Butterfleld, marshal of the city
of Woodburn, is defending himself
today before a Jury In circuit court
against the charge of unlawfully ap

fought and this case will probably
consume all of the day.
When the raid was made on the

Manager George Rosner, of the
Wexford, got things a little mixed
yesterday, when tie gave a special
exhibition of the splendid motion
picture 4.0UO feet of film repre
senting the struggles of the Crusad
ers In the efforts to capture the Holy
City. The pictures are great, won
derful, marvelous and should be
seen by everyone In Salem. The
costuming is closely Initiative of the
real old "armor and harness" worn
by the doughty knights of old. The
coloring is gorgeous and spectacular,
the figures life like the massing and
grouping of the fighters and the
scenes rcnltfstic. In fact It can only
be understood and properly appre
ciated by being seen.
There was nothing mixed about
that part of the show, but by what
process of reasoning Mr. Rosner ar
rived at the conclusion, the news
men and the clergy belonged to
gether. Is what stumps the writer.
It was all right, for they mingled
without scrapping, and the associa
tion didn't hurt the ministers any, or
appreciably better the reporters, but
as the latter were principally from
the Statesmen, the Journal boys be
ing "on shift" and consequently un
able to be there, this condition and
lack of effect, is explained. The
Statesman boys are not beyond the
pale, but It takes time for goodness
to work In. The Wexford manager
should repeat the experiment every
day or two for the next year, and
then note the results.
