Senator Mitchell was out of the Senate
from 1897 to 1901, having lost his seat |
largely by' reason of his advocacy of theA
free coinage of silver. The Legislature]
elected In 1898 was so everwhclmingly 1
against him that he would not permit his 1
name to be used as a candidate. Even his
friends believed that Senator Mitchell
had been permanently retired to private
life, and it is we'.l known that his 'return
to the Senate came about through acci
dent and the complete, change of heart
experienced by the gold standard wing of
the Republican party, which had pre
viously prevented his return to the Senate
and carried election of 1898 in direct
opposition to him. However, upon his re
turn to the Senate the Senator, being
popular with the national administration
and knowing how to use this influence
effectively, succeeded in controlling the
entire Federal patronage of the State,
and by its judicious use greatly strength
ened himself politically.
The present city government of Port
land is indirectly but largely the out
growth of the political turnover which
placed Mitchell in the saddle in 1900. This
municipal administration is looked upon as
a failure, and the unsatisfactory local
conditions are charged to Senator Mitchell
and his faction. The prediction's freely
made that the Simon people who were
displaced to make room for Mitchell will
again be placed in • control of affairs as
the outcome of: the next election. There
is no doubt that Senator Mitchell is very
greatly concerned over the situation, and
he has much reason to be so^ Unless all
signs fail there will be a complete over
turning of political conditions, and in the
upheaval that seems imminent the Sen
ator will very possibly be compelled to sea
another invested with the Uoga he lias
worn so long and is so lotn to part with. '
Under these circumstances the recent j
appointement of E. W. Davis and the j
turning down of J. W. Knowles for reg- ¦¦
inter of the La Grande land office has
been a severe blow to Senator Mitchell j
and has caused much uneasiness among 1
his friends. The Senator's strongest card j
was his supposed influence with the Pres
ident in the matter of securing appoint- i
ments for his supporters. His failure to j
obtain the appointment of Knowles, back- I
ed as he was by the 'unanimous recom- |
mendation of the entire Congressional del- 1
egation of this State, was followed by the
assertion that Senator Mitchell would en- j
deavor to defeat the confirmation of Da
vis, the President's appointee, in the Sen
ate. This put the Mitchell faction in the
very attitude of opposition to the national
administration which they had previously
been urging as an argument why the Si
mon people should not be supported at 1
the soils. 1
The main issue in Oregon, statements
of political leaders to ths contrary not
withstanding, is who shall be elected
United States Senator in- 1907 to succeed
Mitchell. And to this single end-«ll the
energies of both the old Mitchell machine
and the new organization which Senator
Simon is now constructing are being bent.
The Legislature that will be elected
next June 'will not choose a Senator, nor |
are there any important State offices to
be filled, yet the battle. for supremacy at |
that election promises "to be sharp and:
tierce, and at this early date is already j
beginning to show itself. There will be !
Jifteen State Senators elected, who will i.
hold over and participate in the election
or Senator Mitchell's successor. Of these ;
fifteen State Senators five come from !
Multnomah, the banner Republican coun
ty of the State and the real batt'.e ground
of the contest. It goes without saying
that Senator Mitchell desire^ to be re- j
elected, and the personnel of the State
Senate to be re-elected gives the distin- j
guished, Senator much concern. , It will be j
Remembered that Senator Mitchell owes |
his present seat in r the Senate to the votes
of Democrats, Populists and those Re
publicans who united to defeat v the Re
publican caucus nominee for Senator In
the Legislature of 1901.
SIMON FOBCES ACTIVE.
election in June and is thus
a forerunner of the Presidential
campaign gives unusual importance to
tha election. The feature of the contest
will be the' battle for supremacy between
the Simon Republicans and tho Mitchell
wing of the party, and while the Mitchell
people are In control of everything, in
cluding the Federal patronage of the

presage the return to power of the Simon
It will be remembered tnat on the ex
piration j of Senator Simon's term /last
March he deliberately accused President
Roosevelt of breaking a written promise
and produced thtf letter to prove his
charne. 'Phis incident was seized upon
by the Mitchell people, who thereafter re
ferred to the Simon wing as the "anti-ad
mlnlstratlon faction." Moreover, they an
nounced their Intention of making the
question of whether the administration
should be supported or not the main issue
in the coming campaign.

TH«= VALUE OF CHARCOAL
Few People Know How Useful It Is
in Preserving Health and Beauty:
Xearly everybody knows that charcoal Js the
FCTat and most efficient disinfectant and pur-
ifier in nature, but few. realize its value wlien
taken into the human system for the same
clf-ansinj. purpose. .' .^ '
Charcoal ia a remedy that the more you take
.of it the better; it isfnot a drug at all. but
elmply absorbs the gaees and impurities always
present In the etomach and Intestines and car-
ries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking,
drinking or after eating onions and other odor-
Charcoal effectually clears and Improves the
complexion. It whitens the teeth and further
acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which collect
in the stomach and bowels; it disinfects the
mouth and throat from the poison of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one form or an-
; other, b-jt probably the best charcoal and the
j most for the money is in Stuart's Absorbent
j Lozenges; they are composed of the finest pow-
j dertd Willow charcoal, and other harmless an.
tlee'ptlc* In «ablet form or rather In the form
of large pleasant tasting lozenges, the charcoal
being mixed with honey.
The dally use of these lozenges will socn
tell m a much improved condition of the gen-
eral health, better complexion, sweeter breath
and purer blood, and the beauty of It Is that
no possible " harm can result from their con-
tinutd use. but on the contrary, great benefit.
A Buffalo physician in speaking of the bene-
fits or charcoal (.ays: "I advise Stuart's Ab-
eoibent Lozenges to all patients suffering from
gas in stomach and bowels, and to clear the '
complexion and purify the breath, mouth and
throat; I also believe the liver is greatly bene-
fited by the dally use of them; they cost but
twenty-five cents a box at drug stors, and al-
ihouKh In Mme sens* a patent preparation, yet
I belie\e I get more and better charcoal In
Btuart'8 Absorbent'l-ozenges than in ' any of
tbe ordinary charcoal tablets." I
