The country papers throughout east ern Oregon speak favorably of the re election of Congressman W. R. Ellis. They point out the fact that although be U a candidate and could gain much strength and secure new votes, per haps, by coming home and making an active campaign, yet he Is remaining st his post cf duty at Washington at tending to the state's business and is trusting his re-election to his friends at home. The two other candidates are mak lEg an active campaign and are tak ing advantage of the absence of Con gressman Ellis to gain portions of his strength here and there where they can. In view of this fact, the tone of tbe country press, with but one or two exceptions, is encouraging. It looks as though the people would cot forsake a man who is at his post and who Is willing to sacrifice his chances for re-election in attending t the people's work which he has been chosen to do. Senator Fulton is in Oregon mak ing an active campaign for re-election. Congressman Ellis could do likewise if he wished to do so, but he has chos en to remain at Washington where his services are needed. and the expenditure of considerable money to be nominated and elected governor of Oregon for one term, but ho was turned down cold for a second nomination. He was entitled to the second term, under every rule of poli tics, but the people had enough of him. If he wits such a brilliant suc cess ns a governor why was he cast aside iit the end of his first blunder ing term? He then ran for United States sena tor and polled a small vote with no republican opposition but the legisla ture knowing the people's sentiment, regarding Oeer, as shown in their re peated rejection of him. again turned Oeer down, and he then ran for gov ernor before the primaries f 1906, and was not only defeated by a new and untried man, but did not carry cither of his home counties, Marlon nor Union. And still he has the audlclty to say th.tt the people have never turned him down. The fact Is they have done nothing but turn him down since they fcund out what his political and pri vate calibre Is. Now after all these repeated rejec tions, after all these rebuffs from the reople of Oregon, he moves Into a new district and Immediately sets himself up for the highest honor in the district. With his past record to answer and his persistent office seek ing as a mill stone about his neck, It is safe to say that he will . be de feated again this last time. He is making a political death struggle now. Had he been a fit man for public office the people of Willamette valley would have gladly kept him In office The truth Is. they found him out and "shook" him. Eastern Oregon will do likewise, if she regards her own interests. OEF.R TOOK THE MONEY. In answering the clmrgo that ho sold the office or Mtierlii Madam of the Oregon im-iiIicii-thiry to 11. B.

HAHRIMAVS DREAM. THE HEAVY REGISTRATION. The heavy registration for the pri maries in Umatilla county is an evi dence that the people love their pri mary law and are going to take an active part in selecting their candi dates. It is a refutation of the repeat ed statement of the machine politi cians that the primary law would fi nally die a natural death from lack of interest on part of the people. It is now hoped that the vote cast in the primaries is as heavy as the registration. Tbe voters njust exer cise their citizenship. Let them vote on every occasion and be watchful of their interests and soon the political atmosphere of Oregon will be cleared BP- The chief reason why corruption crept into state governments under the old way of selecting candidates, ras that voters did but little thinking about government but trusted it all to a few self-selected bosses. Now that the individual voters must think and vote for himself government will clarify itself. This will make the most acred scheme of state- people will tion. the primary law principle In the government. The not consent to. its vlola- MR. GEER'8 RECORD. T. T. Oeer. who. in his race for the congressional nomination in the sec ond Oregon district, says in his own paper, the only one boosting him for the place .that he has never been turned down by the people of Ore gon. Let us see. He was a member of the legisla ture two or three terms from Marion county, but the people finally got tired ur him and defeated him. Had he been such a man as he says he Is, would not Marlon county have con tinued him in the legislature indefi nitely say 25 to 25 years as they do capable and honest men In other states? He succeeded by political scheming Harrlman's master stroke In secur ing control of the Erie railroad com pletes one absorbing dream which has occupied his mind since he first step red, full armed, into the railroad arena a few years ago. It has been In one great object to own an ocean-to-ocean line linking t gether the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and giving him a free sweep around the globe with railroad trains and steamships. NOW that dream seems to have been realized. The possession of the Erie system fills in the gap between Chl ccgo and New York and opens up the gateways of the Atlantic coast to this master of the Pacific coast. Now what will be the outcome? What will Harriman do with it? What additions to his immense traf fic organization will come as a result of this new arm reaching into virgin territory? With an ocean-to-ocean line binding San Francisco to New York with Har iiman steel, and with subsidiary lines reaching out like, tentacles into every state, it looks as though Harriman is in a fair way to dominate the entire traffic of the continent. With a dozen tracks, If necessary, side by side, what would hinder Harriman from concen trating the through business of the United States on his lines? It is a dream that cannot be com prehended at a glance. It is so stu pendous, so vast and complicated and complex that one must stop and con sider. And after Harriman has laid track after track side by side to meet the traffic born of his country wide mo nopoly; after he has concentrated the current of freight movement into his swift flowing channels of transpor tation; after he weaves his web of railroads, like a gigantic spiderweb with tight-drawn cords attached to every state in the Union, suppose Har riman should tire of fame and should say to the United States government: "Here Is the greatest system of trans portation on the earth; take It and run it in the interests of the people." It would be such a short step from Harrlman's monopoly of a hemisphere to government ownership. Will Har riman do it? He is capable of Just such an act. for they use as their tools the poor, the ignorant and the hot-headed, who. Inflamed by anarchistic utterances, commit violence. Emma Goldman, for Instance, probably lacks the cour age to throw a bomb, though she is very- wordy on the subject. Tlie people of this country, those who are law-abiding, are by no means oppressed. The government and countless individuals labor incessantly and spend fortunes annually to edu cate the poor and the Ignorant so that they make their own way and stand on their own feet. The people of France were justified In their revolutions, for they hid en dured centuries of oppression, but the people of the United States are offer ed every opportunity of bettering their conditions. Obviously, as President Roosevelt suggests, It Is necessary to prevent anarchists from spreading their doc trines of destruction as long as there are any who will listen. Eventually if our educational institutions are suc cessful, there may be none who will care to listen. ENEMIES OF THE NATION. Anarchists the country over will now probably attack President Roosevelt, and we may expect fiery tirades from the devotees of the red flag, speeches accusing the president of denying the right of free speech, free thought, says the Spokane Chronicle. Free speech and free thought are all very well, except when they Incite to riot, murder and destruction. Then they become the Instruments of evil, ar.d as such should be curbed. The present temper and tendencies of the anarchists resembles nothing so much as the temper of the Ignorant people of France prior to and during the reign of terror, and we want no reign of terror in this country. Anarchy Is a destructive and not s. constructive doctrine. It teaches the annihilation of law, order, property and Individual rights. Anarchists are criminals of the most dangerous class, The highest compliment which the Kast Oregonlan has yet heard pail to the influence of women In public affairs comes from a former resident ot Idaho, who now lives In Pendleton. Speaking of bribing and coercing voters at the polls, as In the olden times before the Australian ballot law- came into general use, he said it was customary for voters to go In herds to the polls with tickets already mark ed by others. "But since women have been voting In Idaho," he said, "the elections have been clean and fair and the voting places on election day in any Idaho town are Just as orderly and genteel as any store, hotel or ether public place where women are found." This inducement alone should be sufficient to warrant the men of Oregon In giving women the ballot.. T. T. Geer has ordered a new dic tionary made at once. Webster's In ternational falls far short of furnish ing epithets needed In his present con gressional campaign. SPRING.
