FIRST UNITED STATES SENATOR ELECTED BY POPULAR VOTE REACHES WASHINGTON SAYS HE'S THERE TO MAKE GOOD THE POLICY OF THIS STORE NATIVE COPPER Is to clean up stock once yearly and open season with new goods. SENATOR ELECT JONATHAN BOURNE, WHO IIAS BEEN CHOSEN BY OREGON, TELLS OF THE REMARKABLE NEW LAW WHICH THAT STATE 1LAS JUST GIVEN A TRIAL AFTER THE PRIMARIES MADE HIM THE CHOICE HE WENT AWAY, BIT WON OUT. E CO. IH- M ion W. V (By GllMn Gardner. Special Correspondence. Washington. D. C, Feb. 12. The first United States senator ever elect ed by direct vote of the people has arrived In Washington and he Is the subject of much curiosity. HI? name In Jonathan Bourne, Jr., and he comes from Oregon. V "Yes," said Senator-elect Bourne, when I asked him about his elec tion, "I find wherever I go there Is great curiosity about this new scheme by which senators are elected by the people. I have been up In New England, and even in Canada. And everywhere I go there are the same questions." "Does the Oregon law really put the matter directly up to the peo ple?" Mr. Bourn was asked. "Directly, and in Just as -binding a way as in a presidential election. Our law works. I am here as a testi monial of its working powers. I am here In spite of the opposition of the bosses and the Influences which ordi narily control the bosses. After the people had expressed their choice at the primary elections and the regu lar elections In April and June, I went away and stayed away. I was convinced that the law would work, and I wanted to give It a fair chance. I have been away for six months In fact have not been back and yet I received 80 out of 90 votes In the legislature. I received a lot of votes which were not under any pledge to me." "Was this not a personal tribute?" "Not at all. It Is merely a tribute to the Intelligence of the people in adopting such a law. It was the law and the principle they had In mind. I Just happened to be the man who had made the fight to get the law. So they made me the candidate to test It out. My election Is merely an opportunity. "I am here to make good. "If I make good there will be no question about my return. And to make good I will have to make good with the people. I can't serve any body but the people. So long as I look after their Interests I will be as certain of my continued return as I am that I am here now." Mr. Bourne paused before he add Vd: "Under our new law the senator from Oregon will have to play poll tics with his brains, not his pocket book. He will have to give his best thought to the service of the peo ple, or they will hold him to ac count." Jonathan Bourne, Jr., who has been chosen for the six-year term, beginning March 4, Is a smooth faced man of about sixty years of age. His most characteristic feature la his firm, straight mouth, though there Is a sugegstlon of brains in the width of head above the tem ples. It required a man of patience, brains and firmness to make the fight he made for this law. For the yast ten years Jonathan Bourne, Jr., has been a s.-rt of Joke with the Oregon machine politicians. Now there are no Oregon machine politicians, and the. Joke Is extinct. There are no conventions no mid dle men no bosses for the corpor ate interests to buy. Jack Mathews, who was the boss of Senator Mit chell's machine, has Just Immigrated to San Francisco, where he has gone Into the "real estate business." The fight really began with . the adoption in 1897-8 of an Initiative Personal knowledge this competitive age and when of ample character it places possessor in the front ranks of The Well Informed of the World. A vast fund of personal highest excellence in any field of human effort A Knowledge of Forms, Knowledge of Functions and Knowl edge of Products are all of the utmost value and in questions of life and health when a true and wholesome remedy is desired it should be remembered that Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., is an ethical product which has met with the approval of the most eminent physicians and gives universal satisfaction, because it is a remedy of Known Quality, Known Excellence and Known Component Parts and has won the valuable patronage of millions of the Well Informed of the world, who know of their own personal knowledge and from actual use that it is the fust and best of family laxatives, for This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of Syrup of Figs and has attained to world wide acceptance as the most excellent family laxative. As its pure l i L. li M&auvc principles, ouiamcu iiom and the Well Informed adopted the more elaborate name ot Syrup ot rigs anu Elixir of Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it will always be called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects, always note, when purchasing the full k JMJ&: 'MM LOUISVILLE, KY. "I AM IN WASHINGTON to MA KB UOOD. AND TO MAKE GOOD I WILL HAVE TO MAKE GOOD W ITU THE PEOPLE." V. S. Senator-elect Bourne, of Oregon. and referendum law. But. In spite of this, the legislature has been able to dodge the Issue in regard to sen ators, until Jonathan Bourne, Jr., started out a year or two ago to get a primary election law, which would permit a pledge by candidates for the legislature to their constituents to some particular senatorial candi date. This law was passed, and It has put an end to corporate and cor rupt control of senatorial elections In Oregon. Other states, attracted by the Ore gon success, are beginning to sit up and take notice. Senator La Follette hus secured a copy of the act and is thinking of recommending its adoption in Wisconsin. A measure almost Identical with the Oregon law Is under consideration In Idaho. The state of Washington Is working on a similar law, and It Is being agi tated In Iowa and some other west ern states. OREGON MAKES 'EM SIGN. Portland, Ore., Feb. 12. The fea ture of the "Oregon plan," which provides for election of United States senators by what is almost a popu lar vote, is what Is known generally here as "Statement No. 1" In the di rect primary nominating election law. After providing that nomina tions shall be by petitions filed with the secretary of state, the law con tains this provision: "In case of an elector seeking nomination for the office of senator or representative in the legislative assembly he may include one of the following two statements In his peti tion; but if he does not do so, the secretary of state or couuty clerk, as the case may be, shall not on that account refuse to file his petition. STATEMENT NO. 1. "I further state i tne people of Oregon, as well as to the people of my legislative district, that during my term of office I will always vote for that candidate for United States senator In congress who has received the highest number of the people's votes for that position at the gen eral election next preceding the elec tion of a senator In congress, with out regard to my individual prefer ence." If the candidate be unwilling to sign the above statement, then he may sign the following statement as a part of his petition: STATEMENT NO. 2. "During my term of office I shall conalde" the vote of the people for OF Personal Knowledg i the winning (actor in the culminating knowledge is really essentia to the achievement of the which no extravagant or unreasonable claims c ill .

There were seventy-five candidates for election to the legislature of Ore gon In June. Of this .number fifty six decided to sign Statement No. 1." It Is obvious that signers of State ment No. 2 will always be very much In the minority. GOVERNMENToV THE PEOPLE AI BY THE PEOPLE , IN OREGON. (BY JONATHAN BOURNE.) Jlrst United Stales Senator Elected By Popular Vote. Oregon Is making great strides to ward the American Ideal of govern ment of the people and as directly aa possible by the people. The state has adopted the initia tive and referendum In both state and local government and In such form that legislative bodies are de pendant on the people, while the people are Independent of and su perior to legislative bodies in law making, nominations and elections. Laws proposed by the Initiative petition and enacted by the people without and Independent of action by the legislature, enforcement of their will in the election of United States senators, and the grant of practically absolute home rule In cities and towns In a their purely municipal affairs, are the latest, and I hope and believe ty no means the least successful efforts of the people In their determination to . absolute ly and directly , govern our country and to make every officer their ser vant In fact as well as In theory.
