Mr. Simon worked the primaries at(
Portland for his masters Scott, Cor-i
bott and Fulling this year Just as lie
has always done for twcniy yema.
Corbett and Falling with Scott own
the only dally newspaper there, and
ot course It upholds Simon's work.
That paper charges all the corruption
or the primaries upon the Frank-Hume-Minto
faction As n matter of
fact Simon, with the money of the
bankers at Portland, has done this
MR,$SIMON AND -HIS.l-A,w.
year at the primaries Just what lieJAg Reported by
has always done, only lie uasmei, wiui
more opposition. Hc ,ms ,nct wltl'
tlio opposition of men who have here
tofore fought with him and -who un
derstood his method. Kimon una
year conducted the primaries under
ills own law (cnatcd in 1891.) lor
some reason lie nas never cmiu.yi;u
his city primary law before at a gen
eral election. But tins year uc
wanted to make assurance doubly
sure, and so he set hl law In motion.
Ho has tho right under that law to
appoint nil tho Judges and clerks, des
ignate the hours and places of hold
ing primary election, the bnllotsare
not required to be preserved, the lists
certllled by his ofllecrs nrc llnal, anu
they can throw out any ballots they
please. No state has such n law. Ho
violates the state law in having only
eleven polling places for 15,000 voting
population, when there should be one
voting place for each 2o0 voters. It is
u physical Impossibility for the Re
publicans of Portland to vote at their
own primary If they wanted to. This
Is Simon. If he wao once whipped in
tho Republican party the very men
who have taken his favors and secret
ly been his tools, would spit on him.
Such Is politics and tho way of the
world. Rut such is the reward of
selfish and corrupt men when they
come to their Just dues.
It used to bo so that only members
of tho legislature could sell their votes
to get a federal olllce. Hut now the
struggle for spoils has become so
flerco that even a delegate to tho Re
publican stato convention can by
working it right got n four year's Job
for his voto. Somo delegates may
consider the rights or tlio pcoplo that
thoy are supposed to represent and re
fuse to sell. Rut theso arc hard times
and the temptation is great. Tlio
wliolo situation shows how completely
tho representative princlplo has been
. abandoned, and to what an extent tho
'simpler faith or n patriotic citizen
'ship has given away to unprincipled
greed and materialistic corruption.

THE SIMON-CAREY MILL
"Throw him out! Smash liiml He's
You're a liar!"
Bang! thump! biff! and a surging
mass or humanity battled and strug

Hcrcc going on in the hall above.
The Itepublicans ot Multnomah
county wore about to hold a conven
tion to nominate a city and county
ticket and delegates to the stato con
vention. Uy 0:45 there were possibly one-half
the regularly elected delegates In A.
O. U. W. hall, but tho Seats were
tilled with a roaring, shouting massor
men. According to tlio election re
turns the Taxpayers or Simon faction
had a majority of the delegates; such
a condition, however, did not present
itself in A. O. U. W. hall, when nt
0:15 W. E. Burke, without previous
warning, sprang to his fcctnnd placed
in nomination for tempornry chair

In a moment the hall was In an
uproar. 'Where thoro had been com
parative quiet, bedlam reigned. Mr.
Joseph Simon, seizing n beer mnllot,
attempted to pound order from the
pi no table in front of him. Ills efforts
were fruitless. "With a bound Carey
reached the stage and took up a posi
tion on tho opposlto sldo or the table
to Simon, who, whllo nothing had yet
been regularly done, had evidently
intended to call tho convention to
"Carey is elected temporary chair
man," yelled Burke above tho din of
voices, following his nominee to tho
stage and pushing Simon aside.
"No! No! No! Simon! Simon!"
catno the cries from the opposing fac
tion, and with a rush from both sides
tho stage was tilled with n wildly
gesticulating mass of men.
Then high above tlio din rang tho
volco of Judgo W. A. Cloland nomi
nating Joseph Simon as tempornry
chairman. Simon put tho motion,
nnd in tlio yell that followed was de
clared elected. Mr. Simon, as tempor
ary chairman, then endeavored to
secure tho naming of a secretary.
There was a rushing sweep of men
and Simon whb torn from his stand at
tho tablo und dnshed against tho
scenes iu the rear of the stage.
It yet lacked 10 minutes or tho
hour appointed for the opening
or tho convention, yet in stri
dent shrieks, Carey, surrounded nnd
aided by his adherents, endeavored
to declare tho Republican convention
or Multnomah county convened with
hlmseir as temporary chairman. Ho
was taken by tho collnr and whirled
A tree tight followed, Canes were
waved In air and brought down on
tho heads ot cursing, struggling men.
Blows were exchanged wherever elbow

disturbing clement, precipitated

Mr. Simon was the llrst to address
Mir. .m.Vf.nl.lfm. If so the Crowd of
passion-inrianied men facing him
could be called Ho wasted no time
In further deploring the disgraceful
scenes that had so far characterized
the convention, but went immedi
ately into a proposition looking ton
creditable temporary organization.
Mr. Simon had been listened to In a
fairly quiet way, most of the delegates
not catching the full drift of the sug
gestion. Mr. Cnrey then proceeded to speak,
and his llrst utterance gave the antl
Slmon faction the cue that Simon's
motion was not to bo supported. "I
propose," ho said, "that Judge Wil
liams bo made temporary chairman of
tiie convention, but that his rulings
extend to parllamcntarc usage only
and not to the seating of delegates."
Mr. Simen: "I have no objection
whatever to General "Williams as
chalman, but I do object to his acting
as such over a collection of men claim
ing to be delegates, yet whose seats
arc certain to be contested. There
are In this hail, from a number of
wards, two sets of delegates, each
claiming to be properly accredited.
Thoro can bo no business done until It
has been decided which of these con
testants are entitled to seats."
Judge Carey: "I know Judge Wil
liams to be a fnlr man and I am more
than willing he should net ns chair
man of this convention, but it must
be as tho convention now stands and
with the delegates as here represented.
We will then have peace and go about
the nominating of a ticket pledged to
reform nnd tlio doing away with sal
ary abuses, that will sweep the Re
publican party on to victory at tho
coming election." (Wild applause
from tho Frank-Humc-Minto section
or the hall.)
Scnntor Dolph wns on his feet be
fore tho npplnuso following Carey's
speech had begun to subside:
"There must be no compromise in
tills matter," the white-headed states
man cried. "Seat only those dele
gates who are regularly accredited to
this convention. No man over whoso
scat thoro is a contest brewing, should
bo allowed3to voto during the prelim
inary proceedings of this convention."
A rulllanly howl interrupted the
senator, bringing Judge Carey to his
feet. "I ask consideration for Sena-
tor Dolph," lie said, "and that ho bo
heard iu quiet."
"Senator Dolph can tako care or
himself," camo from the speaker,
"and when this assemblage will not
hear him ho will subside."
Prior to this, General George II.
Williams had not mado his presence
known in tlio convention, but matters
wcro arriving at such a pitch that ho
felt he must speak.
"I positively decline to actas chair
man of this convention unless I can
bo unanimously elected by persona en
titled to seats," ho cried, his aged
race llamlng with indignation.
"Would you bo willing to serve as
tho third member or tho committee
proposed?" asked Mr. Simon.
"lam willing to do anything that
will serve tho Interests or inyparty.Tlio
bolng tho third member or this com
mittee throws tho entire responsibil
ity or the wrong or theso delegates
and tho rurther election or officers on

But he did not.

dread and fatal disease ? You nee'd not take
pur word for it. They have, in nearly every

Again the hall was turned Into a
bedlam. High above the din could be
heard tlio blows orSlmon's beer mallet
resounding from the pine tablo, but
the gavel utterly failed of effect.
Another light on the stage was im

waters by Mr. Allen moving, in tho
interest of peace und harmony, that
nn adjournment be taken for i hour
during which some sort of conference
might be held. Before action could
be taken someone shouted, "Tanner."
Without rurther invitation Judge
Tanner took the Hoor, but was In

drowned both Simon's volco and gavel,
