Some Opinions On the Matter Pro
Talk or tin extra sj'Ioii of tile leg
islature continues to 1111 the nlr. A
great fluttering was caused by the
disclosure of Senator Bancroft's mis
sion In 'I'm: Jouhnal.
His visit to Salem was significant
of a proal deal more than Ills personal
view, The senator is known as the
flilus 'achates" of the old Portland
ring, that feels the ground slipping
from under Its feet and fears to fnce
tho people again on Its record of last
winter. Jt knows If it remains in re
tirement on that record until tho peo
ple call It forth, It will never emerge
WHAT POLITICIANS SAY.
A bevy of state politicians assem
bled at Hotel Willamette laBt night,
In which were found Governor Lord
and other state olllclals. From what
Portland men said there Is n quarrel
among tho lenders there. Jo. Simon
was said to be in favor of a spcclnl
session, not of his own accord, but be
cause his backers arc squeezing him
hard. Senator Denny was present
but had nothing to say. The life of
the Republican party was discussed,
aimqnoinqn.pf prominence declared
It was not a party question, but a ques
tion of life and death with the people
themselves. The governor said to
thoso present that if ho could get pos
itive assurances of reforms he might
call them together. Hut It was a.
qu.'stlon If any roform was possible
'NIK GOVERNOR'S VIKW
Is rcllected by Walter Lyon In today's
"Talk of an extra session of tho leg
islature has been rife here today. The
breczo was started by Senator Han
croft, of Portland. During his short
stay, tho senator has been advocating
the desirability of an extra session.
Ho called upon Governor Lord and
oppressed his views but made no
formal request, Tho governor Inti
mated tonight that he is not seriously
considering an extra session. Ho said
however, that tho railroad commis
sion might be abolished and some
school and other extra appropriations
might bo repealed for rcllof of tho
taxpayers, but no definite object
hud been presented, nor would ho call
an extra session without the nssur
unco that something would be ac
complished. Senator Patterson Is
reticent, but admits that tho state,
county anil municipal governmental
expenses must como to a hard-times
bisls. Senator Gesner does not con
sider an extra session advisable. Ex
Speaker Moorcs thinks nothing could
be accomplished by an extra seslon.
In connection with tho extra session
talk, distrust generally in the last
legislature Is expressed."
"In several quarters of tho state
there Is discussion of tho propriety of
an extra session of the legislature, to
take measures for retrenchment In
state, county and city affairs; and we
learn, Incidentally, that the attention
of the governor has been called to tho
Importance of such extra session, and
that ho Is giving the subject his con
sideratlon. By the constltutlon,overy
extra session Is limited to twenty
days, and the whole expense would
hardly exceed $10,000. The saving
'.it might effect would many times ex
ceed this sum. Nor would the having
be all. Such extra besslon would give

of Inquiry presented by Peffer, as to

sitting on tho Democratic side ought
to bo sitting on the other side," said
Hill Jocularly responded that the
Nebraska senator "scattered worso
than an old shotgun." Ho pointed
out that if theso gentleman (Allen and

floor on tho sliver bond bill. He re
ferred to the Intrigues before national
conventions and "the wind shaken
platforms" of theso bodies. In his
Judgment tho emergency tariff oud
bond bills wero constructed merely as
a part of tho platform to bo laid be
fore a national convention next sum
mer, and not with any purpose to en
act them as laws. Ho criticised tho
financial courso of Sherman, while the
latter sat across tho aisle, giving close
attention to tho remarks. Ho refer
red to Sherman as the "Napoleon of
finance," but this Napoleon was rap
Idly Hearing his Waterloo and his ex
lie to St. Helena.
Ho enumerated In detail the finan
cial burdens which the legislation
urged by tho Ohio senator, had Im
posed on the people.
"The senator from Ohio Is the au
thor of live new measures of finance,
that have given the people and tho
government more trouble In handling
tho little remnant of MtM.OOO.OOO of
greenbacks than It did to pay $12,000,
000,000 of annual expenditures for tho
support of the government, and moro
than $3,000,000,000 of principal and
interest of tho national debt.
"These measures qro tno demonetiz
ing of silver In 1873; tho sequestration
of tho gold reserve In the treasury in'
1878; the power given the secretary of
tho treasury in 1890 to preserve tho
parity between the metals; the power
to sell bonds at private sale, and tho
power to enablo private persons by
contract tx dispense with tho legal
tender laws In their transactions."
Morgan spoko of tho admission of
tho rich Jews Baron Rothschild and
and Lord Bcaconsfleld to tho nobility
of England. It was tho tendency tho
world over toward feudalism. That
system existed today as much us In
years gone by, concentrating all power
and wealth In tho hands of tho feudal
Tho senator urged a declaration of
congress In lino with a resolution
offerred by Stanley Matthews, that
tho bonds should bo paid In the money
with which they were bought. Ho
suggested also that a 10 per cent re
bate on customs duties to countries
coining gold and silver on equal terms
would make Now York, instead of
Loudon, tho clearing-house of the
Morgan sjwko for two hours, and
then, at 4 o'clock, senate adjourned.

THE MOURNER'S DENCH.
The Portland politicians show signs
of roiKjntance In their efforts to have
the governor call an extra session of
tho legislature. Their anxiety to
Improvo their political standing
causes them to cast about and con
sider their spiritual welfare.
Tho stato Is now out of funds and
all but vory small warrants aro being
stamped. The printing fund Is ex
hausted, as It was moro than half
used up last year. A great many of
the Items of the appropriation fund
now to bo levied for aro already paid
out of tho treasury. Thoso who got
most of these grabsarc talking loudest
about a special session.
. Who are the men on the mourner's
bench ? The Portland senators whe
promised tho people reforms and thca
forgot their promises.
They now seek a chance to Improve
their futuro welfare They all want
to como back to Salem and play re
formers. Tho governor should never
give them tho chance.
