ASSEMBL. IS OLD MACHINE
"Behold the Political Saviors of the Party," Said He "W.
D. Fenton Counsel for Standard Oil and Harriman Syndi
cates; Wallace McCammant. Counsel for Title Guarantee
& Trust Company and Wells Fargo; Charles F. Carey, Chief
Counsel for Northern Pacific, and Others of That Ilk, Whc

What is the assembly?
Did you go to the opera house
Inst night to hear Honry E. McGinn,
of Portland, and B. E, Mulkey,' of
Ashland, expound upon the principal
issues of the present political cam
paign? If you did there is no ue tryng to
tell you what the "assembly" is, or
rather was. If you did not you
missed the time of your life.
Hon. Henry E. McGinn not only
gave a lucid definition of what con
stituted the "assembly' in this day
and age, but ho also gave a life-size
illustration of the meaning of the
word "insurgency", as applied to the
political issues of the day and in a
manner that made it most impressive
upon his large audience.
"The assembly," quoth Mr. Mc
Ginn, emphasized by his own very
forcible and characteristic gestures.
"You will notice that I use the
word 'convention' frequently. Well,
it Is but a slip of the tongue and

an apology to the word 'convention'
for the old convention, as rotten as
it was, was a church as compared

bly' of today." So much for what
he thinks of the assembly.
As for the new term "insurrec
tion" as applied to the reform ele
ment of the Republican and Demo
cratic parties, he went back into
history leading up to the war of the.
revolution, when the Americn na
tion arose in arms and fought for
the freedom they coveted, and which
was their right by birth, from serf

According to a Paris dispatch, the

REMAINS GATHERED UP IN
One of the most growsomo and re
volting accidents that has happened
to mar the pleasure and otherwise
successful termination of tho stato
fair was the killing and grinding up
under tho wheels ot an Oregon Elec
tric train, on High street between
Chcmoketa and Center, at 8:40
o'clock last evening, of Edward Toa
bo, a half-breali Grand Ronde Indian,
who was visiting with his brother,
Joseph Teabo, of local baseball; and
football fame, and now he(ad baker
at the Chemawa Indian school, and
who had been In tho city with his
brother yesterday afternoon and last
evnlng, and was on his way back to
the school to spend tho night with
his brother whon this awful fate over
took him. His remains are lying at
the undertaking parlors of Coroner
Clougli, who took charge of them
soon after thei accident, and held
them for identification. Tho remains
will bo shipped to the family homo at
Butler, on the border of tho Grand
Ronde reservation, for interment.
Edward Teabo, who is about 35
years of age, has novefr attonded tho
Indian school, but came over to visit
with his brother, Joe, a, few days ago,
and to take in the stnto fair. Ho and
Joe came to town yestorday aftor

on desperately for a time, but before
the signal could be given and the

and ho dropped onto the troak.
Ho was dragged for a distance ot

State Sonator L. A. Wright, attorney
for Katherlne Tingley, hoad of tha

city, said today that Mrs. Tingley
would fight to tho very end tho suit

tion to Mrs. P. Thurston.
Sensational charges aro made in
tho complaint, filed horo by Mrs.
Thurston's son, George L. Patter
son, a millionaire banker of New-,
castle, Pa. Ho declares that Mrs.
Thurston, who was married in 1903
to Clark Thurston, n member of
Mrs. Tingley's society, was induced
to leave her property to tho Institu
tion. He alleges that sho wan not
of sound mind; that two of tho wit
nesses named in tho will woro not
witnesses, at all, and that tho will, it
executed by her, "was procured by
undue influence of Katherlno Ting
ley, Lorln F. Wood, Ethollnd Dunn.
