In the distant state of Oregon r contest is In progress of far mor: than local signi:lcanee. A systema' ic and persistent effort is bein-r made to bring about a breach of faith with the people, which would sha:m and discredit the Republican parti uot only in Oregon, but throughou: the country. By legislation, approved by populai vote, that state alopted a plan whirl virtually provlde3 for the direct elec tion of United Stite3 senators. B that arrangement, candidates for tlx Legislature gave their pledges tr vote for the ssnatorlal candidate who receives the greatest numbe of popular vote3 at the polls. The people of Orgeoa have bear heart and bojI In favor of progress lve Republicanism and the policies o! Roosevelt and Ta:t. But the Republican party In tlu stpte has been dominated by a cor rupt, unscrupulous, reactionary ma chine. There have been few more o fenslve recent examples of mlsrepre sentation than was offered in the course of Senator Fulton, tralninf continually with the Aldrlch-Cannoi clique In congress. He paid the prle when he wai beaten by the leader of anothe' faction in the party primary. Bu' the peiple of Oregon Btlll ware not satisfied. They looked beyonc faction and beyond party to find t man they could wholly trust. It is a Republl;an Btate. It vote; overwhelmingly for Tuft. It e'.oetei a Republican legislature. But it elect ed th03e legislators bound In solemi obligation to chome as saiator i Democrat George E. Chamberlain the choice of the people for that of flee as he had beju made then choice for governor by Republican ring. The duty of e ery Republican log Islator so plo.lged is plain. A? honest men like Bourne point out. the Republican Is a traitor to hiH party who fails, in this Instance to vote for a Democrat. Yet the strongest posslblo pressure la being brought to bear upon those legislators to perpetrate the treacher) of supporting a leader of the machine the criminally absurd reasoning be Ing that because the people supported Taft and defeated the men who had fought all that Taft advocates and represents, one of thosa enemies should be returned to the Senate in stead of the man expressly chosen bj the popular vote. For a word of protest against the prostitution of Republicanism by a gang to go to any other state from Pennsylvania may seem too much like Milan rebuking sin. But It Is fall warning to the men of Oregon that they would do even greater dlshonoi to the party by defeating Chamber lain than would be wrought by the re-election of a Penrose. Cured of a Severs Attack of Bron chitis by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. "On October 18th, last, my little three year old daughter contract ei a severe cold which resulted In a bad case of bronchitis,'' says Mrs W. G. Gibson, Lexington, Ky. "She lost the power of spojeh com pletely and was a Very sick child. Fortunately we had a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house and gave it to her according to the printed directions. On the second day she wa a great deal better, and on the fifth day, Octo ber 23rd she was entirely well of her cold and bronchitis, which I at tribute to this splendid medicine. I recommend Chamberlain's Cough Rp-nedy unreservedly as I hive found it the surest, safest and juiciest cure for colds, both for children and adu.ti, of any I havs sver used."

Following the dis missal from office yesterday of Yuan Shi Kal, grand counsellor and commander-in-chief of the forces, and the appointment of Na Tung, an edict was issued today appointing Liang Tung Yen, customs taotai, to the po sition made vacant on the foreign board by the advancement of Na Tung. The representatives of Great Brit ain, the Unlnted States and Germany view the regent's action as tanta mount to an affront to the powers, on account of Yuan Shi Kai's posi i tion abroad. The dismissed counsel lor has long been recognized as the medium cf fair and equitable treat ment toward the nations. Japan con curs in the opinion that the dismissal is certain to result in international Injury, but that representations to China would be difficult. The court's action a fortnight ago in increasing the palace troops and forbidding the entrance to the pal ace, even of the highest officials, without passes, was taken as nn In dication at that time of the alarm felt in court circles, and It Is now believed that there was fear also of an antl-dynastic plot.
