U the imperturbabledis- Mtii.r. of i'hetidore Roosevelt, the ti.an wh 'during the time when he was v Med with almost >• >vei\.ign author ity a ,<i had the power to do the manv tl. ngs he now advocates a- true poii cies, ailowed the opportunity to pass, through a conservatism that seems n ' part of the man h'mself. He now d'f lares it '■> i<e the duty of the ad ministration to drive the spec.a! in terests out of politics; to set our faces like flint against corporate greed; that th» re can be no elective <ontrolof corporations, while their political activity r. i .ins; that we keep counties* men •• < in being good citizen- by ii> c< •>*••.> c-ns with which we surround them. 'ie uov» profeS'"ss to favor equal ■pp<" tu:.iMeS for a.; men; tnat every eiii r of a corp< ration should be h- :d p'rsona'ly re: pen .si ale when the corporation breaks ihe law. In Mr. Roosevelt's plan for a New National party, he seems to have wholly abandoned his toleration of ■ji ei '.l privileges corporate rule, and forgotten that he is the author of tne policy that held it to be the crimes of corporations that should be re strained and not their perpetrators. Jfe even went so far in the case of Paul Morton, President of the Santa l'c road when it was proven that re bates had been given, to exonerate him from all blame and insist that only a fine was advisable and main tain him in his high position in the public service. The same position was taken with reference to the packing-house malefactors, who were indicted but never punished for simi lar frauds. One would almost imagine from reading Mr. Roosevelt's Osawatomie speech that he has been a careful and appreciative reader of Mr. Bryan's speeches, and that he has been a faithful prospector in that " twilight zone" which the latter had found to exist between Federal and State jurisdiction and rule on many matters, it may be that by this dim light this new Moses may be im pelled to lead his followers into a Land of Promise, but it will bo at the sacrifice of about all the Grand Old Party ever professe'i to advo cate. The temerity of this valliant light er since his return from encounter of big game in Africa, is also shown by his attack upon the Supreme Court of the United States, in his Denver speech. Notwithstanding his former respect for the ermine, and the be lief that its edicts should be obeyed until change by lawful ways, be now insists that the Knight Sugar Trust case and the New York " Bake Shop" case, "if followed out, might upset the entire American system of popular government. Treason. Rank treason this! Political Straws. By first trial of the Direct Pri mary in New Hampshire, Tuesday, that rock-rubbed Republican State has been overwhelmingly favorable to the insurgents. Robert P. Bass, Insurgent, has beaten Bertram E. Ellis, regular, by several thousand votes. There was no contest for the Democratic nomination. La Follette has beaten S. A. Cook, regular, in Wisconsin, in the pri mary election throughout the State, from three and five to one. Michigan defeated Burrows, for Republican endorsement as Senator by Representative Townsend, insur gent, about two to one. The nomi nation is conceded and practically amounts to election. The Republican majority of Ver mont has been greatly reduced, and the Democrats made gains in the Legislature. ANOTHER VATICAN BREACH or ETI QUETTE. —Mayor Seidcl of Milwaukee declines to serve on the reception committee appointed to wait upon Roosevelt when he shall arrive in that city. The Socialists do not feel very partial to Teddy sinse he con tended in his writings that socialism would break up the home. Teddy's positions are like the propositions contained in the platforms of his party, however, and should not be taken seriously. Roosevelt's party stands for the " big interests" which are the parents Of socialism, have greatly assisted in giving the doc trine momentum and prestige. It hardly looks consistent that he and his party should desire to chastise their own offspring when it is simply doing that which its parentage ought naturally to suppose it would do under parental example. Did not David rear a son to start a rebellion in his own household which broke the parent's heart ? THE temper of the P.-J. seems to be disturbed somewhat when it feels constrained to say, after its owner withdrew from his candidacy for the Senatorial endorsemen' "for the party's good,'' that Judge Burke will hardly receive as many votes at the primary poll as Legh Frecaian, " the red-horse candidate." ONLf think of a "party necessity" that impels a President of the Unit ed States to step down from his ex ulted position to direct details of a party squabble in the district of a far-off State! liiipendiiis' Disaster. The purchase of a machine street sweeper (costing £400) ami a street sprinkler (valued at S4OOI while tlit city had one just us yood, is not the most salient evidence of want of business judgment of our city au thorities, nor indeed their trading tli in to a Portland tirm for half the cost and j-fuu in cash fur a Sewer (■'lusher, which will not do the work claimed, for a 11 at town like this— ikint; the Plusher cost alone sl,t>oo Is no? the only other instanceof mis appropriation of funds. Let us hope that nothing more reprehensible than mistaken judgment is to blame fi>r thi*. waste of the substance of a tax ridden community. A new deal Is imperatively demanded, from Mayor down, if the people would have a fair and economic deal. It n« • 'i surprise no one if the own- 1 •rs of the dredge Tacoma do not have a heavy bill for demurrage against the city by the enforced de lay in beginning the Eastside fill, for the simple reason that the big box- Hume to carry through it the water from Moxlis creek, is still incomplet ed, as well as the bulkhead promised on Third street to hold the earth when deposited in the slough that extends to Eighth street. When it is considered that the big dredge worked on the Water street fill continuously, nights and Sun days. alleging that too much money was invested in the dredge and its paraphernalia, to allow a moment of inactivity, it must cause reflecting people to marvel that they may now be laid on the shelf for weeks, and possibly months without any in come, and to wonder if there is not a claim gradually growing for reim bursement; or whether the dredge owners may not have alleged an un truth to justify a violation of both letter and spirit of State and munici pal law, and the quite as important provision for and contention of labor unions regarding hours of labor ? Does not the toleration of such a course bear with it the idea of the application of legal or moral estraint is one thing for wealth and quite another for labor ? But what our property owners are now interested in is the possible re sult of delay and the opportunity it may alTord a soulless corporation for exacting indemnity. The time that is being taken to construct the flume and the possible consequence is not a more alarming feature of the situa tion. It seems to be the opinion of nearly everybody who gives the mat ter thought that the flume will not cither meet the requirement of a con duit of the water of the creek and the frequent inflow and ebb of tide water or stand the service with any reasonable degree of permanency. If the same natural law applies to all fills made through a dredge-pipe, by means of a flowing stream of water, much reliable informatioq should be derived from the water-street fill. The three parallel rows of piles only braced by a 6 by H scantling was found to be wholly inadequate to hold the the 3-inch planking in place spiked to inside row, and tho piles were bent and split by the bolts in the cap bracing in all three piles of each bent although recurring at intervals of about eight feet, and the retaining wall vyas out of line several feet for a block or more before any provision was made for reinforcement, and then it could only be done by the make shift of filling in a slanting incline of earth from the outside of the rows of piles extending over the mud flats. How may it be expected that the flume-work, or the bulkhead now being built will stand, under the same conditions ? If the flume is in adequate, the whole cost will prob ably be lost; for it will be almost im posfible to repair, without re-con struction of different, heavier and more durable material. Many people contend that a flume for the service intended trill have to be built of stone, brick or concrete, to last even a short time, and the wooden storm-sewer on Washington street has demonstrated that after a short time the first cost is much ex ceeded by constant repairs. Just how to avoid or obviate im pending consequences, is difficult to determine, but it is not too late for our people to resolve that they will no longer submit to such unwise and profligate a course on the part of our city authorities. Now is the time to act. * * See to it that careful, conserva tive, economic people are selected who will stop this outrageous ex penditure of the people's money without adequate return, who will make a vigorous effort to re-establish a cash basis for only necessary public expenses. FROM Teddy's speeches in Kansas, it would seem be is in favor of the policy which be designates as a New Nationalism. He felt Kansas is a hot-bed of radicalism, strongly im pregnated with Socialism and con sidered it his mission to head off these movements and be would serve as the lightning-rod to conduct the discontented currents into the ground of Republican conservatism. As infectious and incurable malady has been discovered in Seattle; a sickness like the hookworm. It is called' the Korean earth disease, or "Tochiel." The victim was sent to Portland to be returned to bis own country. ASIITON, the Senatorial candidate, who the Ticitu seem to think may out-rank Legh Freeman if not Burke in the primary, will speak at the the ater this evening. Wonder if he will have a band to "draw" for him. Hugged by a Snake. j Mrs. Florence Marryat, and John | her husband, who live on Oak Lawn, in Pennsylvania, have ample means jand consequently plenty of time for j spirting. They, as a result, spend i much of their time in the sports and excitement of wild-wood life and ! search for large game. This led to an unique and exciting experience by the lady while ascend ing the Amazon river in South Amer ica, an experience that has probably never befallen any other living wo man —no less than having been hug ged by a boa constrictor, an immense snake, which subdues its prey by en veloping them in coils of its immense body and inflicting a squeeze which soon deprives almost an} - liviug ob ject of life. The incident given in her own words is interesting especi ally to the ladies and we give it in full. She says: " We coursed up the Amazon in a fiue little boat, with half a dozen natives as guides and assistants. Shooting was good, although the jun gle was terrific. We were probably about live huudred miles up the river when we caine to as fine a stretch of meadow land as you could see in United States. It did not look like South America at all. It was smooth and home-like. My husband and the natives went ashore leaving our boat tied to the bank and I was standing looking out in the direction of the party which went ashore, when I felt a touch at my side. I thought it was the little girl. "Yes," I said. At that moment I felt something-go slid ing around my waist and then 1 was pulled off my feet, just as though a noose had been fastened around me. Right in front of me appeared the head of a monstrous boa constrictor. The rest of its body hung from the limb of a great mangrove tree. The great snake had slid its head carefully down, wrapped itself in one twist around my body, and there I hung, with my feet dangling about three inches from the deck of the boat while it carefully examined me. For a mo ment I was paralyzed with fear. Then I let out a scream. My guard came running up. "Wait, missy," he yelled, and then he went down into the cabin and came up in a moment with an enormous knife. The snake kept contemplating me. Every mo ment I feared its coils would tighten, and then I would be crushed to death, but instead the pressure was not very great—just enough to hold me fast. I was too frightened to feel the shivers of disgust at the touch of the snake. All I could see was the big head swaying in front of me, and the queer little green eyes of the snake looking into mine. I began to for get my plight. I guess I was being hypnotized. Suddenly I heard a yell. There was a terrific squeeze at my waist, and then I dropped 10 the deck. I fainted. When I came to, the little girl and the native were throwing water on my face. On the deck lay half of the snake. The na tive had cut it in two with the knife, and it was the convulsive squeeze that I felt at the last. By the time my husband got back I fully recovered but we did not camp that night and we never anchored close to trees after that, either. The boa could not have been very active or it would have strangled me at once. lam inclined to think that it was just curiosity: it having never seen a white woman before. And here is something else that seems decidedly odd. Besides that first feeling of horror the sensa tion was not unpleasant. There was a curious sense of sleepiness and com fort both in the embrace of the snake and in its slow swaying. Still I never want to try it again. HAS HAD ENOCOH.— It seems that Allen Haynes, the editor of the Spo kane Inland Herald, was too thir skinned to stand the competitive war waged by the Review mid Chronicle, and has ingloriously resigned, alleg ing as a reason that ever since he entered the newspaper field last No vember, he has been made the sub ject of personal attacks from these rival papers. For Heaven's sake, Mr. Haynes, what else could you ex t»ct? That is the "blarsted Ha merican style, you know," as was stated by the cockney who hastily re treated when he saw his opponent draw a pistol to illustrate a point in the argument be was making. THAT SETTLES .IT.— That the Su preme Court of the United States Has the last "guess" in all legal mat ters seems'to be- verified by a recent holding that the title to a govern ment homestead passes when final proof is made, and that the issue of a patent is a mere matter of form. Two justices dissented, declaring this finding to be at variance with the Federal Court's ruling. It is probably in that " twilight zone," in which Mr. JBryan discovered much incongruity existing between Fede ral and State jurisdiction, that these big-wigs have been groping. This supposition only enlarges the myth ical zone somewhat. | THE State College Demonstration cars arrived in the Northern Pacific ! freight yard Tuesday. It consisted of five coaches and two Pullmans, the former loaded with farm animals and products and the latter with learned professors to lecture on various topics of interest especially to farm ers. THE Street Committee have been instructed by the Council to investi gate the Northern Pacific tunnel "smoke nuisance." That's right; make them cork up while passing through. Piles' Address. One of the most brilliant of the State orator?, Senator Pile*, had no difficulty in iliauint; an audience to the theater (Monday night) nor in tn>l<liii<r his hear ers during his discourse. — Olympian. " Kur wayn that are dark and trick' tbat are vai u t'be licaibeu Chinee la peculiar." These words of the inimitable Bret Harte involuntarily arise to the miud ; whenever we read either of the Per kins Tic ins' comments upon any po- I litical question. This is no excep i tion. The extract would be true | with the following exceptions: Sen | ator Piles is not a brilliant orator, 1 nor indeed above mediocrity. He is rather a fluent talker, but he seems to think that it is necessary to add force to what he says by continuous pounding of his tist in the palm of his other hand. If there had been no difficulty in "drawing" an audi ence to the theater, by his personal ity, why was it hooked to a brass band, to be towed all the way from the large concourse of people on Main and Fourth street, many blocks to the theater, which when it had assembled, did not quite number 400 people, less than what greeted Poin dexter, without any band, or the ad vantage of the town beins filled with many people from afatv This is the extent of the "draw "of the "bril liant orator" and that too clad in the toga of a live United States Senator. The discourse consisted of a re hash of dead issues and in rattling the dry-bones that had been long since willingly consigned by the party in power to the grave of Ob livion. Its so!e intent seemed to be to appeal to passion and revive prej udices that existed before the civil war and were exploited to advantage at its close. Even the spirit that prompted Wall Btreet during the war, to hold the nation by the throat until gold, principle and interest, had to be guaranteed, before the sinews of war could be secured for the preservation of the nation, and still prevailed when the golden image was set up permanently for wor ship by the goldbug party. Sen ator Piles seemed to think that while nearly all his party had be come tacitly insurgent upon this is* sue and the Senator's object doubt less was to appeal to that remnant of mental impress that seldom changes and is impervious to reason. This " brilliant Senator," endorses Burke for the ring candidly ip ap 7 parent oblivion of the fact that his party record is much more speckled than that of Poindexter, from abso lute affiliation with the opposite party. The most serious charge, from a party sense, that the Repub licans can allege against the latter man has been that he votes against his party when it is palpably wrong. The most serious objection lies in the fact that he is a corporation at torney from way back and as much their ad vocate while on the bench. THE JEWELS OR COUNTESS STAVBA. —The annual parade of the Tilley fortune alleged to have been left Frank and Guy by the Countess Stavra is being made. A year or more ago many trunks of jewels wece reported us having reached this country. Now they have come again and bring over SIO,OOO in value. Uncle Sam asks that custom duty be paid at the port of entry. New York. Frank Tilley protests against pay ment, like all millionaires, on the ground that they are entitled to come through free, being owned by an American citizen who has been abroad. It is also reported that Guy has "doodles" of money and a bran new wife. All of which is given as part of a continued story. IT is reported that Vira Barton, of the Cbebalis Door Company, is about to erect a mammoth door and sash factory a* Summit. It is to be 1,- 400 feet in length, and have a ca pacity of 2,600 doors daily. A ware house will be 450 feet long that will hold ten cars under cover at once. The whole factory is to be supplied with the Latest and most improved machinery. Forty cottages will be erected and a $12,000 hotel built for accommodation of the employes. A school-house, church, gymnasium and hospital are also included. THE force of the adage " Give a dog a bad name and consign him to the boneyard," is considerably im paired by the fact that a city in Michigan named "Kalamazoo." has increased 61 per cent, in the pa&V ten years. Nor does the warning seem to have been effective when we find a town in Nebraska and One. ift West Virginia handicapped by thf same ungraceful cognomen. AVOID SDCH GLARING HYPOCRISY AND ParrßNSl.—The Perkins Twin* keep headlines of display, exhorting their readers to " Spend their Money at Home, and Stand Pat for Olym pia," and in the same columns urge the same readers to Use Tacoma Gas, pumped to them through 30 miles of pipe. "Oh Consistency, thou art a jewel 1" IT is surprising how "sociable" some people are becoming. The glad hand fairly leaps across the street in cordiality of greeting, and the happy smile beguiles you half a block distant. The promised rail lenlum must be nearing. Or is this but the clever side of the aspiring politician? Thi Oregonian of Monday, now suggests in alluding to Wilson's withdrawal, that Ash ton of Tacoma, " who does not stand the slightest show of success," also re*ign. Nkw You Citt now has a popula tion of 4,76&,883 people, which is a 38.7 per cent, growth for the past decade. Possible, Though Improbable. The desperate condition of the g. o. p. is now clearly shown by the commotion in evidence against Miles j Poindexter, of Spokane, who haspre i sumed to aspire for an endorsement 'as U. S. Senator. Even the execu tive arm of President Taft is extend ed across the continent to nudge John L. Wilson and remind him that ; the corporate influences have a candidate who must not be beaten through a diversion of strength among himself and other regular can didates. It has been so far effective. Wilson with a sigh and murmur "it might have been," drops from the perch to stated ready for grasping any quit! pro </n<> that may come as an equivalent for the sacrifice. The Aberdeen World attempts to show, however, that as in 1908, 100,- 000 Republican and 58,000 Demo cratic votes were cast—giving a Pe cpublican majority of 48,000—it is possible tjjutof thesß,ooo Democratic votes, 40,000 will be cast for Miles Poindexter, Senatorial candidate at the primary to be held next week, which looks very much like counting chickens before they are hatched. It will be seen that it is expected to draw the controlling vote from the Democratic party by absolute con version, which is altogether improb able, especially when we have a live party of insurgents, that will, it is thought, pretty nearly divide the Republican vote on the ring candi dates owned by the corporations and Taft. Anyway the " regulars" arcfright ened almost out of their wits by the prevalence of public sentiment favor ing Mr. Poindexter, and it looks as if his nomination would be practi cally his election at the polls. THAT was an apt reply of a youth who being asked if he knew the dif ference between a Methodist and a Universalist replied: "There is a hell of a difference." Scott's Grocery F. 11. Seott 0. K.
