Editorial Tlll.'RSPAY, Oregon Voters Complimented. The Walla Walla Bulletin publishes the following complimentary and sensible editorial on the election of United States senator in Ore"on at the recent state election: The state of Oregon has again coin3 to the front as one of the great states of the Union by elaborating and demo- strating the great est principle of our Republican form of government, that the people rule Direct primary laws for the election of candidates for United States senators, as well as other oflicials, ha ve been enacted in many states, but none embody a statement No 1, that the candidate receiving the majority of votes cast at the primary shall, regardless of party, be elected. The nomination nf Ci-ndida.tes for United States senator by the people has been a great step in the reform movement. Why the elec tion of senators by the people should be termed visionary is beyond us. The fact that in a Republican state like Oregon a Democratic senator should receive a tmjoiity of the votes cast, is no slur on the people, but a compliment to their intelligence. By voting for Chamberlain, they evinced a desire for his election and i hey should have him. While we strongly believe in the tenets of the Republican party and while we prefer the election of a Republican wherever possible, we realize that the election of Chamberlain was not a blow at Republicanism, in that the rest of the Republican ticket wa3 elected, but it evidenced the fact that the people of Oregon w 'tit Cham berlain to represent them in the United States senate, and the Oregon legislature is in duty bound to send him there. It sounds inconsistent that Republicans should elect a Democrat to office, but if Ihe majority of Urn people choose a man to represent them, the highest principle of our electoral form of government by and for the people, the apparent inconsistency should therefore vanish. The American people are becoming bettor acquainted as to their rights and privileges and t ie power of the ballot. By being able to vote directly for a United States senator I hey feel that, they will be tiuly represented in the United States sena e. They feel that the man they want is the best man for them, and party lined often become elim inated when they are seeking the best man. Judge Cake is an able, conservative man, but he is not as well known to the people at large as Chamberlain, who by his two terms as governor has become well acquainted with the peo le. The factional tight between Cake end Fulton, the bitter arraignment of Fulton by fleney, embittered both sides, and the discontented flocked to the banner of Chamberlain. The Oregonian's peculiar attitude in the senatorial fight also lost many votes for Cake. When the Oregonian cannot dictate policies and practices in Oregon she sits on thn fence and sulks. She is recognized is the mouthpiece of the Republican party in the state, or has been, previous to this election, and when she sulked many of her readers and she has a large following also sulked. i These are a few of the reasons why the Republicans of Oregon voted for Chamberlain. The chief reason, however, was that t ey wanted him. They believed that he would truly represent them in the United States senate. The people are entitled to their choice and should ever be. We are a republic. Initiative and Referendum Measures. The proposed amendment increasing the pay of legislators was de tented by quite a Urge majority in the state. The vote of the state was pretty well indicated by the vote in Wallowa county on that measure and also the ones increasing the number of supreme judges, railroad passes for officials, woman suffrage, wide open towns and single tax, all bciiip- defeated by large majorities in the state at large as well as in Wallowa cninty. Wallowa county and the state both gave large majnriiies in favor of the following: Working jail prisoners, the recall, requiring legisla tors lo vote for the popular choice for U. S. senator, proportional rep resentation, the corrupt practices bill, requiring grand jury indictment, ind November elections. The division state at large, and Multnomah's big ptiation saved that meritorious measure. The scheme to ) ry open the state treasury to build armories was small margin. 'Both tish bills carried but as ths fishwheel owner's bill received the larger vote it will become a law and the other will not, as that is the provision in case two acts carry that conflict, as these two lo.

There is no reason toj believe that even one dishonorable piau was elected by the voters of Oregon on June 1. There is not the slightest doubt about the members-elect from ! this district, Messrs. Oliver and Husk, 1 one Democrat and one Kepuiilicun, b tb of whom consider it their duty to lay aside personal i i.d 2u0 acres on Iuinii ha party preference and vote for the 1(;Q acres on Chesnimniis -popular choice. Mr. Rusk has so vol-! m g milM from lown untarilv expressed himself since the i election, and Mr. Oliver would have as unhesitatingly voted for Mr. Cake had the latter won over Chamberlain. Why not?
