Lents, P. O.. Portland, Ore., April 1, 1908.. (Editor East Oregonian.) The re cent speeches in the United States senate of Senator La Follette have aroused the whole cquntry. In at tacking the Imperfections of our fi nancial system, Senator La Follette caused a rattling among the dry bones of the senate chamber not unlike the disturbance kicked up when Roose velt goes aboard with "the big stick." In temperament. Ideas and methods, La Follette more closely resembles Roosevelt than any other man in pub lic life today. Both are fearless and aggressive. Both are masters of con structive legislation. Roosevelt has administered the government while at the same time securing needed legislation from con gress. For three successive terms La Follette, as governor of Wisconsin, ex ecuted laws in the face of the most powerful opposition and Induced the legislatures of his state to enact such statutes as were needed. An adjustment between the rela tions of the government and the large business interests of the country has been commenced by President Roose velt. It is of the greatest Importance that in such adjustment wise and ef ficient laws be enacted by congress that will insure on the one hand the safeguarding of all legitimate busi ness Interests and on the other the requisite federal control and super vision to prevent, and, if need be, to punish overreaching and dishonest business methods. The great work of the next admin istration will tie the enactment of wise and effective laws to carry out those policies so well begun, and will be legislative rather than adminis trative in character. The country Is more vitally interested nt present, for Instance, in federal control of rail way rate.s lhan it Is In the latest method of governing the Philippines. Certainly In this state transportation U of the utmost Importance. The pooling of the railroads has stopped railroad development in this state and has killed competition In transportation rates. Even the steamboat lines on the rivers have come under the dictation of the rail roads. knm- tin- Railroad. As seen by his speech In the senate the other day, Senator La Follette thoroughly understands the generali ties and technicalities of the railroad problem. He dealt with It in Wiscon sin and gave that state the best set of laws, all rigidly enforced, covering transportation matters that are in ex igence In this country. La PolletU renewed his plea for an official valuation of railroads, so that the people can find out what taxes they ought to pay, and what rates if freight are reasonable. This Is a proposition that must necessarily (um- to the front In the United State as La Follette pressed It to the front In Wisconsin.

I should have the right and power to ' ascertain this value, and. to Judge ; therefrom as to reasonable rates. This, also, would be helpful to assessors In I fixing valuations." lm Follette the Man. The people want nothing but what Is right and fair In these matters. They do not want to cripple or harass the railroads, nor the big financial In stitutions; but they do want, and will Insist upon Information, knowledge and power of regulation and control. La Follette stands forth conspicu ously and notably as the people's champion In these respects. He Is not a mere dreamer or theorizer, but he Is a man who has worked out his ideas to a practical conclusion In Wisconsin, and the people there have the fruits of his work In their pock ets. In their homes, and In their t brains. Why not give to La Follette the chance to do for the United States what he did for his own state of Wis consin? Why not send a delegation to the republican national convention Instructed to use every fair means to secure his nomination? The republican state convention will be called to meet about April 15.

That the machine politicians of Oregon are not alone In their organ ized effort to defeat the popular election of United States senators, la shown by the following editorial from the Yakima Republic giving a brief review of the senatorial situa tion In Washington. The Ankeny push apparently con templates doing all that it can to nulllfyy the law which alms so far as possible to give the people of this state a chance to elect tho United States senator. For many years Indeed, ever since the senate became the stronghold of the "Interests" of the country the people have sought to devise a meth od of selecting senators by popular vote. The senate, which seems to care very little for the desires of the people, quite naturally refuses to be a party to the submission of a consti tutional amendment. ' Various schemes have been resorted to by the people to get back this right to elect senators. One of them Is the scheme which Is a part of the new direct primary law of this state, and the only part that Is a genuine and useful reform. Our primary law says that candi dates for the itate legislature may. if they desire, file with their declara tions pledges that they will, if elected vote for the candidate of their party for United States senator receiving the highest popular vote. It does not provide that tiny must do this, for that would be unconsti tutional. It merely gives men who ask for the suffrages of the people a chance to say that they will do as the people want them to do In case they are elected; and the presump tion is thut honest men will be glad to make a promise of that kind. The law provides for putting the names of the senatorial candidates on the official ballot. If the candidates pledge themselves and at the ensuing session of the legislature fulfill their pledges, the man whom the people want will be elected senator on the first day of the joint session. As we predicted months ago, soon after Mr. Jones became a candidate, the old crowd of politicians, most of whom are pretending to be for An keny, but are. as a mutter of fact, after the spoils and the rewards, of political manipulations, are against thut pledge. They advance all kinds of reasons why a candidate should not take It, and propose all kinds of substitutes for It. ' The other day an Ankeny leader In Soattle frankly told the editor of this paper that he would use the best ef forts to secure an Unpledged delega tion from King county, and he said that many other republican leaders In that county would Join In this at tempt. A dispute!) In yesterday's Times, ostensibly from Olympla, states that a movement for an unpledged legis lature will be general, as it Is strong ly feared that in the event there Is B large democratic minority In the legislature, the unpledged holdover senators may hold up the legislature and make the choice of a senator Im possible. That, of course, is a pre text. The arguments for a popular de termination of the senatorial question are overwhelming No man can buy a seut In the senate under this sys tem. The legislative business of the session will not be Interfered with by senatoral politics, because there will be none. Bartering of public offices for legislators' votes will cease. The senatorial political machine will be wiped out. Corporate Influence In our state politics will be largely destroyed, and business and political Ideals will be elevated to Just that extent.
