Salem Ore Sept 2 Assembly
and antiassembly are the principal
factors in the Oregon campaign which
will culminate in the statewide pri
mary three weeks from tomorrow
Statement No 1 is also coming in
for a share of the discussion Oregon
for the past few years has presented
the anomaly of a republican state
electing a democratic governor and
then electing him United States sen
ator before his term as governor ex
pired
Republicans charge this state of af
fairs up to the form of primary law in
effect in Oregon asserting that demoi
crats registered as republicans
v
republican candidates and later bring
about their defeat at the polls The
democrats on the other hand declare
they provided the better candidates in
every instance and their election was
the logical sequence
This year the republicans determin
ed to make an effort to maintain
party unity within the state and to
this end the state central committee
called assemblies for the counties
and the state The state assembly
which was held in Portland in July
adopted a platform and suggested a
list of candidates for state officers
from governor down In the same
month assemblies were held in a num
ber of counties and in several in
stances county assemblies will hold
adjourned sessions tomorrow to pass
on candidates Suggestion of candi
dates by the assembly of course does
not do away with the necessity for
their circulating petitions under the
provisions of the direct primary law
Considerable opposition to the as
sembly plan arose early in the cam
paign coming at first from the demo
cratic party organs but a considerable
number of republicans joined the dem
ocrats in branding the assembly as
unlawful in that it was not provided
for in the direct primary law and
condemning it as limiting in a meas
sure the freedom of the voter in se
lecting the candidates As a conse
quence of this sentiment there are
numerous antiassembly candidates
for the various offices to be filled at
the November election
For governor the republican state
assembly recommended Jay Bower
man wjio by virtue of his office as
president of the senate became act
ing governor when Governor Chamber
lain resigned to accept the United
States senatorship Opposed to Mr
Bowerman early in the game were
Colonel E Hofer a Salem newspaper
man and Judge Grant Dimick of
Clackamas county The democrats
also have at least three avowed can
didates for the governorship
Another phase was given the politi
cal situation by the nomination of
candidates for supreme court judge
by a mass meeting of the lawyers of
tiie state three republicans and two
democrats The republicans on the
lawyers ticket were indorsed by the
state assembly and the democrats
mentioned filed their petitions for
nomination on the democratic ticket
Statement No 1 is not a promi
nent factor In the campaign this year
as the next legislature will not be
called upon to choose a United States
senator A section of the direct pri
mary law permits candidates for the
legislature to sign Statement No 1 or
Statement No 2 or neither but agi
tation brought to bear two years ago
made the signing of Statement No 1
the popular course for the legislative
candidate to follow In signing State
ment No 1 the prospective legislator
promises to vote for United States
senator only for that person receiving
the highest number of votes at U13
general election without regard to
party affiliations Statemenut No 2
is a promise to regard simply as ad
visory the peoples vote for United
States senator
National politics has entered very
little into the Oregon campaign this
year the assembly problem being par
amount Congressmen Ellis and Haw
ley Oregons two representatives in
