Thomas Jefferson's Birthday
PARTY LOYALTY MANIFEST
By Appropriately Honoring His An
niversary in Virginia.
Ohaklottsvjlle, Vu., April 13.
Preparations have been completed for
u celebration today of the- birthday of
Thomas Jefferson, more elaborate
than has been accorded the memory of
the founder of the Democratic party
for years. A pilgrimage of distin
guished Democrats to his homo In
Montlcello, near this place, nnd sev
eral speeches by statesmen of national
reputation will dignify the natal day
or tho author of the declaration of
Jndcpcndcnco. The Journey thither
of theso broadcloth successors of the
homespun Jefferson Is duo to tho
enthusiasm of Chauncey F. Black,
president of the National Association
of Democratic clubs. Mr. "Black Is a
son of that sterling patriot, tho late
Judgo Jero Black, of Pennsylvania.
For years tho son has worshipped at
the shrine of the Sago of Montlcello.
Tho Democratic party has had but
two sages. Tho other was the Sage of
Gramercy Park. Tho latter Is too
recently dead to bo a fount of inspir
ation, nnd so Mr. Black has drawn
great draughts of pure Democracy
from tho Motloello fount, Just as tho
rivers near It, rising In tho Blue
Rldtre. "draw tho watorB from tho
purplo hills This year tho president
of tho Democratic ciuos uunna uu
psiw!inllv flttlnu time to wnken a
wider Interest in Jeffersonlan princi
ples. So ho issued a notice the other
day to all tho clubs, in which he said
this respecting tho recurrence of tho
"Inasmnch as the Democratic party
when all its members are In harmony,
supporting tho principles upon which
it was founded strict construction,
equal taxes, with economy and sim
plicity of administration undoubt
edly command tho confidence of a
great majority of the American peo
ple, wo especially urge upon the Dem
ocratic organization affiliated with
tho national association to improve
the opportunity of geueral recurrence
to those sacred doctrines as taught by
tho founder, in somo common and
solemn celebratiou of the birthday of
Thomas Jefferson, and thus renewing
our faith, demonstrate that upon all
essentials organized Democrats
throughout the union are. inj 60und
"The president of tho United States,
the cabinet, Democratic senators and
members and many distinguished
Democratic leaders nave been Invited
to accompany the officers and execu
tive committee of the national association.
i i i
The Hpecchmaklng will bo done by
ex-Governor William F. Russell, of
Massachusetts, who will deliver the
chief address, to which Senator John
W. Daniel will reply In behalf of AMr
glnla. The ex-governor of Massachu
setts Is nbout the only statesman of
national reputation who has not been
slaughtered at the polls, and his
friends say ho has, therefore, a pecu
liar fitness for the place he will oc
Montlcello consists of tho mansion
and estate of Jefferson. It was there
ho passed his declining years, and It
was there he died. Its situation is one
of entrancing beauty. Situated on n
slope that overlooks miles of smiling
valley, with the shadowy giants of tho
Blue Ridge In tho distance, the spot Is
one that could not fall to charm tho
eye and soul of so lofty-minded a man
as Jefferson, to whom thrones wero as
paper and empires wero as gauze.
Standing one afternoon near his man
sion, he became lost in contemplation
for some minutes; then, turning to n
friend, he said: "Tills scene Is a clear
typo of what tho world should be a
smiling brotherhood of men,shadowcd
by the great principles of truth nnd
Justice," nnd ho looked off toward tho
mountains, which wero throwing long
shadows from the declining sun.
Though tills will bo tho principlo
celebration, there will bo many ob
servances of tho day In nil parts of tho
eountry. Tho anniversary suffers as
to celebration from a division of ob
servance consequent upon their being
two dates of his birth. According to
tho old stylo of reckoning, ho was
born April 2, 1743; by n change in tho
calendar this becamo April 13. So in
6omo places tho 2d is observed, In
others the 13th. It Is one of tho ef
forts of Mr. Black to mako tho 13th
tho only day of celebration. It has
not been given to all restless Ameri
cans of prominence to bo born and to
dlelnthoBame country. It was Jef
ferson's happy fate. Ills dying eyes
looked upon the same landscapes that
his baby vision had first Inclosed.
Albemarle county was his cradle ana
his tomb. Jefferson, In 1700-75 nnd
in 1770-78. was a member of tho Vlr-
glula house of burgesses, and of tho
continental congress In 1775-70. Dur
ing 1778-81 ho was governor of Vir
ginia, and a member of congress in
1783-84. For four years from 1785 ho
was minister to France, and was sec
retary of state from 1700 to 1703.
From 1707 to 1801 he was vice-president,
John Adams bolng president.
TT was nrcsldent from 1801 to 1809.
The principle events of his adminis
tration were tho war with Tripoli,
tho Louisiana purchase, the reduc
tion of the national debt, tho explora
tion of the West and the embargo.
He died In 1826, at Montlcello.
A special interest will be given to
this anniversary from the fact that a
project is now well under way to erect
a 875,000 statue to Jefferson In New
York City. The committee having
the matter in charge has ex-Judge
Noah .DaviB for president. J. Scott
TTnriAv thftMuilntor of tho Ericsson
statue, has been chosen to executo the
work. The structure will be crowned
with a bronzed figure of the states
man. There .will be other features
omhiomAtift nf the life of the subject.
Educators of prominence are inter
ested in the statue project, as Jeffer
son was the founder of tho University
of Virginia, which la located in this
) mi i i
Governor Lord Assuros Speedy Ac
tion in the Matter.
Governor James II. McGraw, of
Washington, arrived In Portland bot
urday morning and went to the Port
land hotel. Shortly prior Governor
Lord, of Oregon, had come in on tho
Salem train and gone to the same
hotel. The meeting of the two gov
ernors had been prearranged and the
object a discussion of tho violent
scones lately enacted at the mouth or
tho Columbia river, In which glll-nnt
fishermen from Astoria on the Oregon
side had crossed in their boats to a
point off llwaco, Wash., nnd through
force of numbers compelled the de
stroying of ccrtnln llshtrnps owned by
citizens of tho lnttcr state.
Governor McGmw when seen by a
reporter replied by saying: "I havo
como to consult with Governor Lord
as to the beat means of proceeding in
bringing to Justice tho perpetrators of
the high-handed outrage at the mouth
of tho Columbia river, where the prop
erty of citizens or Washington, fully
abiding within tho law of that state,
was destroyed by men coming from
the state of Oregon, simply because
tho methods used In fishing on tho
Washington side differed from those
practiced by the Oregon men.
"My talk with Governor Lord has
heen eminently satisfactory, he being
emphatic In his declaration that tho
law will bo enforced, and that such
persons who may havo participated In
the destroying of llshtrnps at Ilwnco
will bo promptly rendered on requisi
tion and tho sheriff nnd prosecuting
nttorney of Puclflc county nro prepared
to Identify any of thoprlnelpals."
"You havo placed members of tho
Washington national guard at
"Yes. From tho showing made by
Sheriff Roney, I considered It my duty
to send to the scene a sulllelcnt forco
to administer the law and protect tho
property of citizens. This is not a
question of fishing or tho likes or dis
likes of a certain set of fisherman. It
resolves itself Into tho right or people
to pursuro their lawful avocation.
That tills might bo assured, I ordered
43 men, selected from threo companies
of tho W. N. G., and sent to Ilwnco.
Tho men wore dispatched by tho wny
of South Bend, .and arrived at tho
mouth of tho river Thursday night,
slnco then there has been on- further
"What traps wero destroyed and
what damage resulted?"
"At tho present speaking It Is
hardly possible for mo to estlmnto tho
damage through lucking oxact knowl
edge of the cost of tho property In
volved," replied Governor McGraw.
"Three pilcdrivers wero set adrlft.ono
of which proved a total loss, the other
two being recovered In a damaged
condition by tugs. A trap, which was
lawfully operated In 1804, was demol
ished and the piles of a now trap wero
pulled and set adrift.
"I will return to Seattle tonight
with condfldencc that Governor Lord
will net promptly nnd decisively in tho
Inquiry at Governor Lord's office
reveals no new developments In the
fishermen's strike at Astoria.
TUB FISHERMAN'S SIDE.
Ed. Lund of Astoria writes: I note
in the Astorian of tills morning that
a detachment of troops are ordered to
llwaco to protect the property of trap
pers against the possible aggression of
striking fishermen. No doubt this
has reference to tho recent notion of
a number of Astoria fisherman In pull
ing or compelling the owners to pull
out a number of trap piles Just driven
near the entrance to llwaco in tho so-
called cut-off channel. To outsiders
and those not acquainted with the
circumstances In tho case, this must
seem to be a very high-handed and
riotous proceeding, which in ono sense
It probably was. But, as with every
thing else, there are two sides also to
Thegrouid on which these piles
wero driven Jthere are somo left yet)
is located at the lower end of what
is known as Sand island, between
there and Fort Canby, Just at tho
entrance to Ulwaco. This ground has
for a number of ycjrs been the favor
ite fishing grounder tho fishermen on
lower river. Hundreds of nots pass
over there dally, nnd It Is snfo to say
that more fish nro; taken out In this
drift tlinn any other llvo drifts on tho
rlyer. Tills ground Is exceedingly
dangerous to fishermen under any cir
cumstances, but Tvith n number of
trap piles right In the cut oT channel,
where all nets passing down, toward
the capo swing In oh first or tho Hood,
this drift is utterly ruined. A trap nt
such a place Is ntjtfonly a fish trap,
but also a muntmpj nnd a nct-lrup ot
the most dangerous character. It will
probably bo argued by tho trapowners
that n man can ptck his net up before
the flood sets in, and thus save It
from drifting on the trap. Those who
are fishing down there know that such
a thing Is often Impossible, as a man
lias to leave his net on nccount of tho
breakers nnd wntch his chance to got
It back on the fiood. I nsk every fair
minded person, any ono with a spark
of justice In him, Is It right that two
or three Individuals, for tho sako of
gratifying their ubnormal greed for
money, should be permitted todeprlvo
huudredsof their fellow-bolngsof their
sole means of providing for them
selves and families? Tho glllnettors
havo for years patiently submitted to
Doing crowded out of one after tho
other of their best fishing grounds,
until they now thought tho time hud
como when patlcnco was no moro u
virtue. What action thoy will tnko
now, when troops havo received orders
to help the trappers to mako n fortnnc,
by robbing them out of their living,
is hard to tell, but ono thing le sure,
nnd tiiut Is, If those traps aro built
and permitted to stand, there will be
moro lives lost and moro nets
destroyed than havo ever been
heard of during nny ono season.
As batliSand Island and Fort Canby
arc government resorvutlons,tho spaco
between must be tho same, If 1 am
not badly mistaken. As wo all know,
If Undo Sam Is very part leulifr about
any Intrusion on his property, I don't
sco how any ono can bo sustained by
him In driving piles utsuch a place,
especially where It Is a dangerous ob
struction, both to fishing and navi
gation, i should be pleased to be in
formed through your valuablo paper
ns to whether or not said ground la u
government reservation, and, In that
case, If It Is legal to drive piles thero
In conclusion, let mo stato that tho
pulling of theso piles by tho llshorman
had nothing whatever to do with tho
present strlko, as botn trappers,
Boincrs, nnd glllnettcrs nro solid for 5
cents a pound. This was done by tho
glllnettcrs simply to protect their
right to live, tho Justice of which
