We have received many inqui
ries as to the location of the first
Sunday school building referred
to in the pioneer article of last
week. The building stands on
the north west corner of Tenth
and Chase streets. In as much
as it is the oldest house in Falls
City and bas so much of the ai
mosphere of early associations
clinging to it there seem* a
growing' feeling in favor of pur
chasing it and removing it to
the park. The house has but
little intrinsic value and could
probably be purchased very
The legislature is split be
tween Gov. Shalienbarger and
Mr. Bryan Both of thesegentle
men have senatorial aspirations
and are laying the wires for the
contest. The great majority of
the legislature seems to believe
that Mr. Bryan has been tiie
whole hog long enough and that
some other and less seltish dem
ocrat be given a chance once in
a while. The general impres
sion at Lincoln seems to be that
the Governor will beat the dis
appearless one a mile in a prim
ary election. At any rate lie
ran way ahead last fall.
Soule of llie so-called republi
cans of Lincoln, who were doing
their utmost to give Mr. Bryan
the state last fall, are now hatch
ing a scheme under the instruc
tions oi the peerless one to de
feat Senator Burkett. The idea
is to have as many republican
candidates on the primary ticket
as possible so as to divide the
republican vote and to permit
Mr. Bryan to be the only demo
cratic candidate. This, under
the Oregon primary law would
doubtless result in Bryan’s el
ection. Under such circumstan
ces the republican legislation
candidates should refuse to
pledge themselves for the prim
ary choice for senator.
Just how well the scheme will
■work, remains to be seen. (Jov.
Shellenbarger is being pushed
in opposition to Mr. Bryan and
his friends are insisting that the
democratic party has been the
property of the thrice defeated
candidate long enough.
In the meantime the medicine
mixers are busy and the politi
cians are working over time.
We do not remember of having
relerred to Henry Gerdes un
kindly. We know that Mr. Ger
des has never been abused in
tiie^e coludiin. The statement
made to the contrary by a local
paper is a very patent and silly
falsehood. The field of abuse
is so well tilled by one of our
newspapers that even had wi
the desire to enter it we would
know there was no room for us.
We did say that the committee
appointments given to Ralph]
:Clark exceeded those given toj
Gerdes and Kotouc by the ratio
of lb to 1. This is a mere state-1
ment of fact and, as we read it. j
contains nothing abusive. That!
Mr. Clark is recognized as the
house leader is known to every |
one who is acquainted with the
condition. Any reference we
have made was merely in recog
nition of Mr. Clark's position
We did not intend to wound any
one's feelings, in fact, we did
not know that there was any
feeling in the matter until we
read the assault upon Clark
printed by a local newspaper
and were told the inspiration of
the publication. If any one re
sents Clark's rapid advancement
to leadership, if any one feels
that we have rubbed salt in their
wounds we are sorry and a polo-1
If any one desires to hinder a
young man’s progress by abuse
and groundless charges, we
know of no way we can pre
We resent any intimations of j
anuse on our part towards one
for whom we entertain the high
est regard, and volunteer the
suggestion that Mr. Gerdes be
saved from his friends, whose
attitude, peculiar at least, has
led to what we believe is a false
impression as to his feelings.
OREGON PRIMARY SYSTEM
The legislature will probably J
enact the Oregon primary sys-j
tern under which a republican
legislature elected a democratic
senator. Under this law each
legislative candidate is request
ed to pledge his vote to the prim- j
ary choice without regard to
party. If he does so his name
will appear on the ballot as fol
John Jones, pledged to vote
for people's choice for senator.
If the candidate declines to so
pledge himself, this fact will be
stated on the ballot.
Mr. Bryan believes that under !
this law he could be elected
United States Senator without
regard to the politics of the ma-i
jority of the legislature.
