JOLTS AND JINGLES
By Ad Brown
From ono stump a lonoo-ray-tor
Spouts aloud for Mighty Ted,
On a box another urges,
"Honest folks, Taft isn't dead."
Hero nnd there an earnest worker
Outlines policies of. Marx,
And tho suffragettes have posters
On tho "poles and in tho parks.
Now 1 hear a mighty shouting
That's ascending, long and loud;
Tis the tumult of tho joyous
. Democratic Wilson crowd.
Wizards, prophets, this I ask you
As ray knees r bend suppliant,
I don't care about election,
iit will Boston beat the Giant?
Candidate William Sulzer may be
all right but his, name sounds like
something to drink.
J. P. Morgan was quizzed In a sub
dued tone, politely, and with great
deference. Tho wonder Is they dared
quiz him at all.
Always eager to take advantage of
the latest Inventions, .Messrs, Jolts
and Jingles has installed a campaign
song machine. This little device saves
trouble and worry and grinds out the
hongs at least possible mental strain.
Here are two samples which we ex
pect will be grabbed up by tho Rooso
Velt and Taft forces before morning,
Sing the first to an elastic version of
"Maryland," the second to any tune
that comes'to mind. No reason why
wo shou)d furnish the music.
. ' I '
Oh, Theodore, from shoro to shore,
Theio comes a big deep throated roar.'
'You'vo hart two terms and now Im
plore That wo should glvo you ono torm
Hut, sha' wo do It? Nevermore.
Oh, Theodora, Our Theodore.
We are the bold standpatters,
For bjg men .wo stand pat
And so we'll cast our ballots
For one who's big and fat
Wo cannot see tho reason
Old frlonda aalrWj to fling
W'u think no los of Wlllyum
Caufe'o he never illu a thins.

A1NEW I'lminpion of the divert prinmvy has iirison
tho Portland Orcgouinu.
After ton years of strenuously battling against popular
government, the Orogonian is now posing as its staunches!
Tn the independent nomination of Jonathan Bourne,
the Orogonian pretends to fear the annihilation of tho
Tho shameful violation of tho corrupt practices
act to defeat Bourne arouses not a word of protest
from the Orogonian. It is openly commended but tho
idea that au appeal from tho party faction to tho people
of the state should be made by the victim, is revolutionary,
in tlie, oyes of the reactionary journal.
'die solo object of the direct primary is to "let the
mien the political party became tho creature of
bosses, who controlled it for selfish ends, the direct pri
mary was devised, to smash the bosses and give control to
the rank and inc.
When by means of law violation, misrepresentation
and corruption, tho control of the party is seized by fac
tion, the remedy also lies in an appeal direct to the people.
There is no reason why the republican party, in Ore
gon, -which- is progressive, should bo bound to support a
reactionary and Selling is a Taft standpatter because
State 'party nominations mean less than ever this year.
It is the personality .of the man, his record, bis beliefs,
his ability that count not the label that he weal's.
Jonathan Bourne has made good as a progressive as
v.'ell as senator.
La Follctfe gives Bourne highest praise as a true pro
gressive. He ought to receive the support of all La Fol
let to progressives. '
Boosevolt strongly commended Bourne's course as a
progressive. Ho ought to receive the Bull .Moose votes.
Bourne voted with tho senate democrats on tariff re
vision and other progressive measures. Bourne and Cham
berlain voted alike. Bourne's course ought to please
Because of Bourne's progressivencss, Taft withheld
all federal patronage for Oregon from him. But his record
of accomplishment ought to appeal to the standpatters to
such an extent that their regard for the state's welfare
would outweigh factional prejudice.
If the direct primarv is to be prostituted bv corruption.
it will go the way of the convention and some other means
be devised to let the people rule.
The way to preserve the direct primarv is to rebuke
corruption by defeat at the hands of the people at election
as the Manipulation of the primary, through tho as
sembly was rebuked.
. .flit politics aside it would take six years for anv of
uie candidates, even it tlieir ability was as great, to reach
the strategic position now occupied by Bourne in the
senate and Oregon cannot afford to lose six vears.
Bourne is iortunate m
nas ueeu so openly unfair, unjust and lalse to the Oregon
system, that its support will of itself, damn any candidate
with the people. It is the Jonah of Oregon politics, and
its opposition almost equivalent to an election.
Brandies Discusses Third
Term Party Platform
(By Lewis D. Bmiuleis)
The new party presents a platform
in many renpeets admirable. It
fcets forth some principles with which
every intelligent American munt
heartily agree. It proposes many
measure which would mark real pro
gress. Thcjilntform ifV'tttlmTr
ablc, also, in tins; it deelares in ef
fect that the principles uuimcinted
and the measures proMet1 are not
merely plunks in a platform to he
discarded a old lumber after the
olecHon is over. Hut for
the very reiiHon that tlii platform i
broad nnd couiprehenwive, that it in
clear, direct and definite in its pro
visions, and that it is offered lo you
as a voiitnicl t be accepted, or re
jected by you, examine it carefully.
Study particularly itn effect upon la
bor. And in making that examina
tion, nolo not only what it contains,
but what it omit; ant consider what
the natural results will be of 'the
'policies which it advocates. And
when you make that examination you
will find that there ih a significant
'omission; uiid that this wkillfully de
''The new (third term) party, in
this platform, pledges itself to social
and industrial justice, and specific
ally to work unceasingly for effective
legislation looking to the prevention
of occupational diseases, overwork,
iiioiiiiliiry ltuetnplaymeut, and other
injuries effects incident to modern
industry, and it proceeds to set forth
fourteen definite and distinctive mea
sures to that end. Uut nowhere in
that lonj and comprehensive plat
form, neither in its nobly phruncd
statement of principles, nor its gen
eral recommendations, nor in it-
enumeration of specifio mcnMirct-,
can ther be found any pledge to so
euro the rigid of labor to organize,
without which all other grants .'lid
concessions for improvement of the
condition of the woikingnutn mo fu

approval of the practice. Tho plat
form pi onuses soeinl and industrial
justice, but it does not promise indus
trial democracy. The juslico wludi

his enemies. The. Oregonian
Jinen nre strivine; lo secure for them
selves, through organization. Indeed
tho industrial policy advocated Ijy
the new party would result in the de
nial of labor's right to organize.
"The new party stands for the
perpetuation and extenion of pri
vate monojM)ly in industry that pri
vate monopoly from which ho few
have ever profited at the expense of
the many, and for the dethronement
of which the peoplo have, in the past,
fought so many vnlieut battles. Tlint
ctiix'd pioduet of despotism, tho
new party, propones to domesticate
in our republic, preclaiming: "We do
not fear commercial itower.' Certain
ly ogauized labor has had experience
with the great trusts which should
tench nil men that commercial power
may be so great Hint it is the part
of wisdom to fear it."
Great trusts the steel trust, the
sugar trust, the beef Irust. (he to
bacco trust, the smeller trust and
a whole toop of lessor trusts havo

labor from their, factories the very
foundation-stone of their labor pol

right to combine seems lo have been
regarded by tho trust magnates as a
proper test of the efficiency of their
capitalistic combination. Ami, in
deed, this ability of the great trusts
to overcome- the workingmau has been
confidently relied upon by the truxl
advocates as one of the great "sav
ings of combination." Jf tho trust
magnates get their trusts legalized
now through the new party so lh.it
