CHALLENGE TO SCOTT

LET THE PEOPLE KNOW
How the Portland Machine Gang
Broke Al! Pledges.
Mr. Harvey Scott, edlUr Oregenian:
You are publishing all the abuse
heaped upon the legislature for failure
to keep platform pledges that Demo
cratic and Populist paper can print,
besides what you can invent. You
are crucifying tho party between two
thieves, as It were. We make you the
Will you print the state nnd county
platform pledgcs,and'the names of tho
Republican members who introduced
and voted for measures to kcop those
Will you print tho roll-calls on those
measures and all questlonsof economy
that came up In both houses, as re
corded In the printed journals of tho
Will you print the names of Repub
lican senators and representatives
who incurred expenditures for lllfji
priced clerks, Investigating com
mlttccs, mileage and perquisites?
Print these facts In your own paper
and let the public Judge whether It
was tho Portland gang, "tho thirty,"
or whoever It was that failed of their
duty to the people and party.
You keep charging that the legis
lature was recreant In its duty. That
-is a question of fivcU upon the record.
Will you glvo tho people tho facts
and allow them to Judgo for thorn
B3lves, instead of continually misrep
resenting them ?
Aro you willing to allow your
friends, Paxton, Long and Simon,
whom you put forward to demand an
extra session and as apostles of Re
publican economy allow them to
Bhlne In the electric blazo of their
own records, Instead of -crucifying
the whole Republican party for their
sins and short comings? Will you
do It ? Dare you tell the truth ?
Dare you deny that these men pass
ed the electric-light contract bill, the
text book contract bll Hn'03,defeated
repeal of tho railroad commission,
slaughtered reform In the, house of Its
friend? If you dare then you dar6
publish tho legislative record.
If you are afraid, then you Btand
coudemed as a fraud beforo tho pcoplo
You wrote a reform platform and
then sent a gang to tho legislature
(except two men you could not con
trol) to prevent thoso reforms and
and break all their pledges.
We challenge you to publish the
legislative proceedings from the re
cords, which tho people cannot other
wise obtain except at $4.00 a set.
LOWER THE TAXES.

its Income the past year and will re
duce the tax levy two mills.
Salem school district has been en
larged and a much reduced lovy should
be made. All cities are reducing their
levy. Portland levies less than ono

MISS OVERMAN'S WISH
She Deslros to Tell the Board
Tho Voluminous Document She
Has Ready to Present.
SAN Fkanoihco, Jan. 22. Miss Mat
tlo Overman has demanded tho right
to appear before tho board of inquiry (
which Is to try tho charges of Immor
ality brought against Rev. Dr. C. O.
Brown, and give her version of tho
affair, which has sodlstrcsscd tho pco
plo of tho church and interested tho
public. Miss Overman lias prepared
a voluminous document, and, llko tho
Rov. Dr. Brown, Insists upon tho ,
privilege of reading It to tho mem
bers of tho Joint committee. Her re
quest was discussed nt somo length,
and tho opinion prevailed that it
should be granted.
Tho statement of tho young woman
is very long, reviewing all tho inci
dents which havo become public prop
erty slnco tho arrest of Mrs. Davidson.
Particular attention Is paid to the lot
tors which Miss Overman wrote to
her friend, Mrs. Tunnell. Theso let
ters will constitute ono of tho most
Important features of tho inquiry.
Tho committee Is particularly anxious
to know whether or not thoy aro gen
uine. When they aro convinced of
that fact by Inspection, thoy will then
Institute a very rigid cross-oxamlna-.
In asking to appear beforo tho board
of Inquiry Miss Overman submit her
self to Us rules. Her statement will
form tho basis for cross-examination
of a very thorough character. Judg
ing by the slzo of the written state
ments of facta, Mlas Overman will
tako about three hours to read tho
paper. Whqn she shall read It has
not been determined.
Miss Oveaman had prepared two
very elaborate statements of her con
nection with tho caso. Ono of them
Is In tho possession of'lhe police, and
tho othor Is still held by the young
woman, pending the action of Inquiry.
Tho first of theso documents has now
become of tho greatest Importance,
Itecauso It was made at a time when
the letters which wore written by
Miss Overman to Mrs Tunnell were
not known to th public. The first
document, It may lw Interesting to
khow, was dictated to the police bo
fore Christmas, nnd no refcrenc
whatever Ismadcto the letters penned
to Mrs. Tunnell.
Theso letters were prlvato property
then, and so far as known only two
pursuns wore nwnro of their contents.
Miss Overman's defense was made up
of other material. Sho mot the
charge or Mm. Davidson upon other
grounds. She was ready to produce
letters which were written to her by
Dr. Brown nt tho very time Mrs.
Davidson charged thatnn amour was
Theso letters, as already related,aro
barren of the suggestion of nllectlon.
They will still form n strong part of
tho case as Dr. Drown and Miss Over
man will present it to tho hoard of
inquiry. But In view or tho second
document, which was furnished yes
terday, and to which detailed refer
ences was nnilo last night, tno Brown
lettors constitute an in Incident .of
only minor luportaucc.
In tho second statement Miss
Overman lays particular stress upon
tho letters which sho wrote to Mis.
Tunnell. Theso Iott rs must bo ex
plained. Thccommittco Isa unit In
tho opinion that theso letters form
tho most Important- feature of tho In
vestigation. In tht second statement
Miss Overman tries to supdly tho ex
planation. Down to One-Half
