i ■ . r '.iii incomprehensible
'. : : s of ' in.Ti'an politics at the
present time. 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

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.

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."
