Nebraska. I hope, may never have the
lime experience with the Oregon plan of
electing senators my own state haa had.
But I fear with the statute on your booka
th experience will be a bitter one.
'If there ever waa a ayaiem devised to
let the minority ' rule tn a better fashion
than this, I have never heard of It.
Oregon's experience has already aroused
the republicans to revolt and next year
they wilt hold assemblies that are really
conventions and - will . 'suggest' candidates
for office who wilt be real men. A state
with a normal republican majority of be
tween 35,000 and 40.000, I think, will never
acaln let the minority dictate Its officers."
In this way State Senator .Seneca C.
Beach of Portland, Ore., on, his return
from a, trip to Chicago, gave expression to
his sentiments on the "Oregon plan," which
will soon be tried in Nebraska. Mr. Beach
formerly lived in Nebraska, running the
rV.romaburg Republican In 1881. He is
president of a printing firm In Portland.
Portland tn state of Revolt.
"Portland haa already revolted," con
tinued Mr. Beach, "and with the selection
of former United States Senator Joseph
rUmon for mayor, the coast city sees hope
for better things. The business interests
of Oregon, since the erase for the 'ideal'

Weak-kneed republicans were Induced to

than force the people to have confidence

for their party candidate. Then, when by
democratic aid a woak republican like Cake
was put up, the vote went to Chamberlain,
who in the tariff fight was seventy-five
times absent when important votes were
taken. Chamberlain was popular, having
teen twice governor, but his record since
being elected senator has made the people
sick. The people, unthinkingly, are too

ALESHIRE'S VISIT FRUITFUL
Quartermaster General Makes Omaha
. Depot a Big One.
AMONG LARGEST IN COUNTRY
Brigadier General Respond to Ms
mands He Saw Were Proper and
Which Major McCarthy
Had Lone; Urged.
The recent visit of Brigadier General
James B. Aleshlre. quartermaster general
of the United States army, to Omaha, has
already borne fruit In the determination
of the War department to greatly enlarge
the Omaha quartermaster depot and make
It a direct dependency of the auartermaster
general's department at Washington.
Heretofore the Omaha depot has been
under the direct supervision of the Depart
ment of the Missouri, the quartermaster in
charge, being an assistant to the chief
quartermaster of the department.
Major D. E. McCarthy, chief quarter
master of the Department of the Missouri,
has since his Incumbency of that office for
the last three years urged the import
ance of the Omaha depot as one of the
great army supply distributing stations and
accompanied General Aleshlre on his recent
visit to the depot, explaining its many ad
vantages and ' admirable facilities as a
shipping as well as a storage depot. Gen
eral Aleshlre at once saw the force of
Major McCarthy's recommendations and
has acted accordingly.
It la understood that the depot will be
measurably enlarged and that It will. In
the near future, be made one of the princi
pal depota of the country.
Early in the present year It was made
one of the group of five large purchasing
depota of th country, and Omaha haa prof
ited largely by the sales of quartermaster
supplies to It, these aggregating nearly
11,000,000 yearly, with the prospect of be
ing Increased annually.
The Omaha depot under the new arrange
ment will continue a a purchasing depot,
and as one of the Important quartermaster
depots of the country will be second only
to the great depot at Jeffersonvllle, Ind.
