so suddenly.
One of the serious damages by the
storm was to the new bridge being
constructed on the Nesquully at the
point where trie old bridge crossed
1 he river, carried away Monday, at a
loss of from s2,HOft to 13,000. The
new bridge built by the counties of
Pierce and Thurston, and the railroad
bridge a few miles above the one
owned by the farmers, withstood the
strain and are yet undamaged. The
farmers' bridge, which was to have
cost SIO,OOO. is a total loss, so far as
it was built. The building will,
however, probably be resumed as it
is deemed a necessity by many farm
ers living too far for the new county
bridge. The old bridge was washed
out last winter.
The storm seems to have been
quite general on the Sound.
The big steel and wood bridge of
the Oregon and Washington Rail
road, near Centralia, was washeg out

the many letters of congratulation
received by the STANDARD, from far
and near, on having passed its fifti
eth birthday, is one from Mrs. Jo
sephine Pevore Johnson, of Portland,
Ogn. "Josie" Devore passed her
maiden days in this city, and was the
daughter of Rev. J. F. Devore, the
athletic devine who, having been of
fered as a donation by Capt. Crosby,
all the lumber he could raft from his
mill at Turn water, in one day, thus
secured nearly enough wooden ma
terial to build the first M. E. church
in this city. "Josie," an old-time
friend of the STANDARD editor, writes
her communication in the classic
Chinook jargon, then largely in use
here with the English, which we pro
pose publishing with a translation,
soon as we have tune to brush up our
memory of the outlandish patois.
She says, in English: "I write you
in Chinook, after the manner that
always seems natural and exclusive
when writing to my genuine old
time lilikum *, like yourself. Ido
not want to believe that you have
forgotten your siwnxh tenwn. ' Lest
you forget,' I will merely suggest
that I have tried to express how dis
appointed I have been In the impos
sibility of congratulating you in per

WHY NOT? —The recent article of
J. C. Conine, on the subject otf finan
cial legislation, caused many com
ments among non-Re publicans, who
feel that the big financial interests
of this country are greatly favored
when they can procure money to be
issued by this Government based on
" other securities," which may mean
any old thing whether marketable or
otherwise. Mr. Conine's remarks
caused some of the new bills to be
carefully read and the terms dis
cussed. These two words are prompt
ing enquiries among the inquisitive.
A farmer said if the Government
can issue money based on watered
stocks, be thought it might more
consistently issue currency to him
secured on his land and cattle; give
htm a chance to pay off his obliga
tions or draw interest on his debts
like unto the big interests.
TIIE attempted black-mail of Rocke
feller to the tune of $50,000 is doubt
less to get a grasp on a small part ot
that $29,000,000 fine that John D.

enough, unless a thousand or two of
his nephews are imbued with a simi
lar motive of enforced restitution.

Grand Ovation in Recognition of that Fact
Last Saturday Night Over 200 People,
from all Parts of the State were Present —
No More Joyful Assemblage Ever Met at
the Capital of Washington —No More Cor
dial Hand-Clasps have b.-en Accorded any
Cilizen - No More Enthusiastic Eulogies
were Ever Expressed of Mumble Endeav
or to Perform a Simple Duty to Fellow
Man Presentation of an Elegant Loving-

Long ' Ayant the Twal,"
It is with considerable diffidence
th.it we approach the task of giving
a i •mpi'ehensive account of the ban
quet given the STANDARD Saturday
night, in enns-qucuee of the writer
! uving to p>.-e to a large extent as a
I central ligure, in which he is no
'adept, and would much rather write
| of these occasions as one of the many
promoters, than as on this occasion,
| the honored guest."
The evening entertainment began
after the assemblage had been seat
ed. by the following kind introduct
ory remarks by the Toastmaster,
Gov. Hay:
"We have gathered here to do
honor to one who occupies an unique
place in American journalism. The
journalistic career of John Miller
Murphy has no parallel in this coun
try. and because of rapidly changing
conditions, that career can not bodu
"Just half a century ago, Mr.
Murphy issued the first number of the
and from that time to the present
day. the STANDARD has never missed
an issue. Each week, as regularly as
night follows day, that paper has ap
peared, never changing ownership,
or location, always ou time, and al
ways reflecting the keen, vigorous,
wholesome personality of its pub
" It is a wonderful record of faith
ful, conscientious service to the pat
rons of the paper as well as a monu
ment to the sterling character and
fine intellect of Mr. Murphy."
The Governor then gave a brief bi
ographical sketch of the editor.
In conclusion Governor Hay said:
"As a journalist, Mr. Murph.v
played an important and an effective
part in the building of the Pacific
Northwest. He has witnessed and
ably assisted in reclaiming Washing
ton from the wilderness, and it is an
honored privilege to acknowledge at
this time and in this manner the ser
vice he has rendered."
Rev. Dr. R. M. Hayes, of the
First Presbyterian church, this city,
delivered a fervent appeal to the
Great Ruler of the Universe to bless
the occasion.
The banquet was served by the na
tive born girls and matrons of the
city assisted by the domestic science
students from the Olympia High
school. It was strictly a Puget
Sound dinner, consisting entirely of
the products of this section, starting
with clams and closing with pie, ap
ple and pumpkin.
Edwin Eells, the oldest native son
in the State, was the first one called
upon and delivered his speech first in
Chinook and then "Boston-Man
talk." His Chinook jargon kept the
hall in a ripple of laughter from the
start and many of the old timers re
sponded during the delivery with ex
clamations in Chinook. Following
the address, G. Rosenthal, the pio
neer merchant of this city, rose to
his fefet and advancing to Mr. Eells
congratulated him in Chinook, bring
ing a great hand of applause from
the guests.
Greetings from the Oregon State
Pioneers were delivered by Judge P.
H. D'Arey of Portland, who gave a
brief history of the early days in
Washington and Oregon, and the
great work done by the pioneers, and
their children.
The native sons through Lachlan
Macleay of Seattle, sent their greet
ings to the veteran editor.
Mr. Himes' address was too long
to IM> printed in full within our lim
ited space. Although his theme was
the STANDARD, it abounded in much
that was reminiscent of the many
things only indirectly connected
with the subject, and although of in
terest to themselves, are barred sim
ply from the cause named. Air.
Himes said:
In the outset Mr. Murphy's ideal
of a newspaper was high, hence the
tone of the STANDARD during the
half century of its life has been uni
formly commendable. Every move
ment that in his judgment tended
towards the improvement of moral,
social and educational conditions has
received its hearty support. In gen
eral it may be said that all who have
known the STANDARD recognize it as
an excellent newspaper—a credit to
its editor, and a credit to its con
Politically, by inheritance, natural
tendency, association and habits of
study and observation, Mr. Murphy
is a Democrat. However, at the
time he established the STANDARD,
only 11 days after the momentous
Presidential campaign of 1860 bad
ended, and before the result of that
election was known in this part of
the country —there was no telegraph
line to this Coast then —he declared
himself to bo uncompromisingly in
favor of preserving the Union, what
ever the results of the election.
That attitude led to his support of
the Republican party during the
Civil war, and on up to 1867. In the
June election that year he supported
Gov. Marshall F. Moore, formerly an
able general in the Union army, for
delegate to Congress. Since then
Mr. Murphy has been an independ
ent Democrat, as ready to denounce
wrongdoing in his own party as in
any other.
While he has never sought politi
cal office to any great degree, he has
been called to public service to some
extent —first, as public printer for
one term, although another person
had the credit; second, Territorial
Auditor for several years; third,
Quartermaster General of militia;
fourth, as a member of the City
Couucil for several terms and one
terra as County Superintendent.
While political controversies of the
present day become unduly heated at
times, yet the moment the conflict is
over normal conditions are resumed,
and all who have suffered defeat ac
cept the situation gracefully, with
the hope of being more successful at
the next election. Not so during the
ivil war period. No one can real
i/." what the conditions then exist
ing were except eye witnesses. The
relations between the early settlers
who fame to this Coast, from States
north of Mason and Dixon's line and
those from the Southern States fre
quently became greatly strained and
occasionally resulted in personal
conflict. It must not he understood,
however, that ail Union men came
from the North and those opposed
from the South. Among the stron
gest supporters of the Union were
men from the South, ana frequently
it was found thai the most ardent
advocates of secession were Northern
m -n. In this trying experience Mr.
Murphy lore a in mly part. He re
alized that there were honest differ
ences of opinion, and was therefore
generally considerate of those who
did not agree with his views.
1 remember one ease, however, his
caustic comments upon the views of
a man who had been a Federal office
holder under Presidents Pierce and
Huchanau, drew forth several re
joinders, and at length Editor Mur
uhy was challenged to tight a duel.
As a result the would-be duelist was
informed that the " code duello ' was
not recognized in this part of the
country, and in addition he was so
mercilessly lampooned that he with
drew the challenge.
The oniy serious charge brought
against Mr. Murphy during the
three years that I worked upon the
STANDARD— IB6I-1804—was that of
" being young." That was sneet ing
ly flung at him continually by those
who attempted to dictate his policy,
and by a few of his contemporaries.
Those who uudertook to measure
strength with him frequently failed,
and then would credit some of his
editorials to older men. It is true
that an occasional article appearing
upon the editorial page was written
by others, but Mr. Murphy's de
cided views upon all questions relat
ing to the attitude of the STANDARD
concerning them subjected all such
articles to severe pruning, often to
such an extent that they were scarce
ly recognizable by theirauthors. Mr.
Murphy was the editor, and from his
decision there was no appeal.
The comment of the Pioneer and
Democrat upon the lirst appearance
ot the STANDARD was as follows:
" The mechanical part of the paper
exhibits neatness and good taste, be
ing printed on new type and of good
readable size, while its editorial col
umns display much ability and ex
perience—particularly for so young a
man. We acknowledge ourself grati
fied with the friendly intimations,
and its pledge to continue in that
happy state of mind; and we certainly
at present know of no cause why we
shall not remain personally friendly
with its editor. That we may and
will differ upon the various political
topics that agitate the public mind is
altogether probable but let that differ
ence be characterized by justice and
moderation. An open, manly oppon
ent we admire."
An excellent trait in Mr. Murphy's
character is that of faithfulness to
his friends and fidelity to all trusts
reposed in him. I remember as an
apprentice 1 was instructed not to
give out any information regarding
any transaction, business or other
wise, that occurred in mv presence
in the newspaper office. What took
place there, even current gossip, I
was taught to regard as of a strictly
private nature. I do not think an
instance can I*s found in his long
career where Mr. Murphy's opinions,
as expressed in the columns of the
STANDARD, were influenced in any
degree by mercenary motives. And
1 do not think he ever betrayed any
confidence reposed in him in the
least degree, even though by so do
ing it might have rosulted in his
pecuniary or politicel l>enefit.
The Seattle Press club was repre
sented by Francis P. Goss, its Presi
dent. Mr. Goss in a few brief re
marks tendered Mr. Murphy the best
wishes of the Seattle newspaper
boys, and presented him with an en
grossed copy of their resolutions, at
tested by the seal of the club.
Reminiscences of the early days
were given by Mrs. Mehetable H.
Elder, Thomas W. Prosch, Clarence
Bagley, Grant C. Angle.
Nathan Ward-Fitzgerald delivered
an eulogy on the work of Mr. Mur
phy as the " Nestor of the Washing
ton Press."

One of the letters of congratulation
most highly prized js th?t "received
from his first "boss," D. W. Craig,
now living near Salem in about the
85 th year of his age. It follows:
My Dear Frieud: —i am reminded
by notice in the papers that the 50th
anniversary of your establishment of
the "Standard" at Olympia is at
hand, and that the event is to be
celebrated by your friends there.
Time *o imperceptible vanishes away
that I can hardly realize that a half a
century has elapsed since on the
morning of the Kth day of Juno, 18t>0
you bade me adieu, a'. Oregon City
and started for the Territory of
Washington, with the view of enter
ing the newspaper field. Von first
went to Vancouver, and 'lien to
Olympia at which latter place yoti
had often spoken, .vhile in my em
ployment, of starting a newspaper.
I well remember receiving in No
vember of that year, the first num
ber, which was up, in matter and
form, to your ideal, and from which
it lias scarcely varied in all the inter
veninii years, from that time to this.
If you remember, you finished your
apprenticeship to the printing busi
ness with me, also working for some
months afterward. 1 often recur to
those times, with pleasure, when we,
both young, would get out the paper
alone, with no superfluous hands
around, and in the way. I noticed
then in you, a fixedness of purpose,
which your life since has manifested
in an eminent degree. Your con
temporary of the Orojoniitn, Mr.
Henry L. Pittock. is another re
marked example of the rare trait to
which I have alluded illustrative of
the well known adage of " the roll
ing stone."
1 would like to Imj with you 011 the
anniversary occasion, but that is out
of the question. lam neither too old
nor to infirm, but my affairs won't
allow my leaving home. Please ac
cept my congratulations on the inter
esting event, together with my sin
cere wishes for a long life to you of
continued prosperity and happiness.
Very truly your friend.
D. W. CitAiu.

Dear Sir: Accept greetings from a
brother editor in New York State up
on having complete fifty years in the
editorial chair. Can realize what you
have done in that time for the better
ment of the great human family.
Such a history as you could write
would be of greatest interest to the
newspaper fraternity. Surely your
experiences have been many and
varied, watching the growth of our
common country and also that land
where flows the Oregon. May you
live many years to enjoy the fruits of
the labors and may your shadow
never grow less. Assuring you of
my best wishes and with sincere
greetings upon your fiftieth anniver
eary as editor, I am,
Fraternally yours,
Editor Boonville Herald.
SANTA CLARA, Cal., Nov. 4, 1910.
Mr. Albert Tozier, Past President
National Editorial Association, 293
East 54th street, Portland, OgD.
I thank you for the kind invitation
to the semi-centennial anniversary
celebration in honor of Mr. John
Miller Murphy, and regret exceed
ingly that the great distance that
separates us from the.scene of this
celebration makes it impractical for
me to attend.
Not only would I delight to have
part of the honor to be shown Mr.
Murphy, but I would be proud to
know and meet a man whose journal
istic record is ono in ten thousand.
This record speaks for itself. I need
not be told that Mr. Murphy is a
man of splendid character and at
tainments, for only the highest at
tributes of the man and journalist
would have sustained hiin in so long
and arduous a career, and brought
him at this time the honors his fel
low citizens and co-workers are now
about to bestow upon hiiu.
Pray give him and the members of
the Washington Press Association
my cordial and respectful greetings.
Sincerely yours,
President of the National Editorial
LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 8, 1910.
Mr. Alber Tozier, Portland, Ogn.
Please present my compliments to
Mr. John Miller Murphy, publisher
convey to hiin my congratulations
upon having reachod the golden an
niversary io his journalistic career.
I hope he may be spared many years
to give his readers the benefit of his
long and ripe experience.
Very truly yours,
Another letter Irora Mrs. Mary
Mills Huntington, of "The Dalles,"
Oregon, expresses " the most sincere
regret" in not being able to extend
congratulations in person. She
writes: "I cannot imagine you any
older than when we used to sing in
the choir of the Blue Ribbon League
in Champion of the Red Cross hall.
What good times we used to have,
but that was nearly thirty years ago,
and I now have children oldor than I
was at that time. How I wish I
could see you all again." • » •
After the presentation of a beauti*
ful Loving Cup from the editorial
and Pioneer Associations and the
Olympia Commercial Club—the pre
sentation speech being gracefully
done by Mrs. Edyth T. Weatherred,
the editor, on a rising call said:
While I realize that to be last I
I must necessarily be brief, there are
some few points not touched upon
by others in the life of the STANDARD
and its editor that I think are of
eno-jgh interest to be mentioned here.
One of these is suggested by a re
mark of Harvey W. Scot t some years
ago, in talking of the relative prog
ress of the Oregonian and the STAND
ARD. He seemed to think that real
progress was shown in the many
page edition more than continuity of
publication, but he seemed to have
devoted more attention to results
than the causes that had produced
them. The success of a big paper
must result from environment and
opportunity, united with a full com
prehension of methods and persist
ence in applying them. The oppor
tunity presented the Oregouiau was
the civil war. The enterprise and
sagacity of Henry L. Pittock, its
pub isher, succeeding T. J. Dryer
and others, in its management, en
abled him to obtain the Associated
Press franchise, and give the only
news service existing north of Sacra
mento. This made the Oregonian an
absolute necessity to the whole
people. UFL to that time it had been
a "country weekly," of four-page
[Conclusion on next page.]
Tick Republicans are, figuratively
speaking, "moving heavens and
earth" to have Frank H. Rudkin,
who now. holds the lucrative and ex
ceedingly enjoyable position of Su
preme Justice of the Washington Su
preme Court, appointed a Federal
Judge for the Eastern part of the
State, in order to advance some
other i>ap-sucker to the vacancy and
thus move the whole line one notch
farther upward. It is surprising with
what exact precision the machine
wheel revolves. " More offices, more
offices!" is the slogan constantly
kept in view, and the conductor sel
dom goes outside the "ring" for ma
terial. One would think the rank
and file would get tired of waiting
their turn in the line of preferment,
for which all have such an inordi
nate liking.

lasted only four days. Had it taken
place in Washington, it would have
required double that time to select a
jury. The fat man Taft did hit the
nail on the head once, when he said,
the administration of our criminal
law is a disgrace to our civilization.
It is not the purpose of our institu

cities of refuge for criminals.
