The HERALD Is the Most Widely Read Paper on Crays Harbor ABERDEEN HERALD VOL. XXI WASHINGTON LETTER A WEEK PROLIFIC OF SEMI-OFFICIAL STATEMENTS. Senator Beveridge Visits Oyster Bay, and Concludes "We" Are Not Standing so Pat as "We" Were. Political Gossip in General From the Center of Politics. [Special correspondence to Hkhald ] Washington, D. C., June 26.—This week has been prolific of semi-official statements. Beveridge has been to Oyster Bay, and presumably with authority, announces that "We" are not standing so awfully pat as some folks suppose. The statement Beveridge wiites for the "World" is not as specific as the curious desire, but it announces that "natural causes" should be reasonable and avoid producing panic, just because it is found necessary to revise some scandalously oppressive schedules. The whole significance of this semi-official statement is that revision is accepted at Oyster Bay as an inevitable issue. Then comes Botirke Cockran home from Nebraska, where he has seen Mr. Bryan. He repeats what so many who have seen Mr. Bryan lately know to be true; that is, that he is in doubt as to whether he will be a candidate or not. He thinks it is too soon to decide. These two great oiators, according to the newspapers, Bpent their time in talking about the platform. Finally, Norman E. Mack returns from abroad to report of fields and individuals beyond the pale of candidacy, and says that Richard Croker will return to the States, but oni.y to vote. The hope expressed by Mr. Mack that Mr. Hearst and Mr. Bryan will, for the party good, make up their differences, has brought out the first explicit statement concerning Abe basis of the feud between these two gentlemen. None of Hearst's friends whom the New York newspapers sought would speak for publication, but it was learned that there is still a very pronounced ill-feeling on the part of the Hearst people against Mr. Bryan, and the reason is given thus: Mr. Hearst, in 18!)t> and 1900, personally through his newspapers, supported Mr. Bryan for the presidency. In 1904 Mr. Bryan was not a candidate for the presidency, while Mr. Hearst was, and Mr. Hearst felt that he should have -Mr. Bryan's support. Instead of requiting the political loyalty of Mr. Hearst, Mr. Bryan went upon the platform and seconded the nomination of former United States Senator (Juckrell, of Missouri, who had no chance of being nominated. Some of the Hearst people who were Been declared that Mr. Hearst's friends would do everything possible to defeat Mr. Bryan for the nomination next year, and that if they accomplished their purpose, Mr. Hearst would not run for president as the candidate of the National Independent League. Peculiar significance is lent by these statements, which are admittedly inspired from Hearst sources, to -Mr. Bryan's recent utterance concerning the Hearst Independent League, to the effect that "from a Socialistic standpoint there will be reason enough for a third party; but that from a Democratic standpoint, a third party will be unnecessary." Neither the broad and charitable statesmanship which enlightening travel is supposed to produce, nor the chastening effects of defeat and repudiation are apparent in this disclosure, and thoughtful democrats are justified in wondering whether the promising party outlook is to he clouded by a personal rivalry, potty enough to do credit to a town meeting, and involving personal ambitions and 110 principles. Sonw of the ignoble results of this quarrel between the candidates may bo seen in the recent exposure of Mr. Bryan's undignified method of hanging around box ollices and personally collecting and bestowing, in a bag carried for that purpose, the actual cash for his work as a lecturer, instead of having a clerk 01 a secretary do it. While this and other small items of purely personal interest may be entertaining to groundlings and professors of deportment, they cannot contribute to a healthy public discussion about matters of principle.

Captain C. E. Burrows Passes Away Saturday Evening After a Long Illness. His Death Closed an Eventful and Well Spent Life. Funera I This Afternoon. One of the best known and most universally respected citizens of Aberdeen, Capt. C. E. Burrows, died at 4:10 o'clock Saturday afternoon, of Bright's disease, alter an illness of' nearly six months. The funeral took place this afternoon, at 2 o'clock, from the family residence, 102 Kast .Second street, under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity, of which the deceased was an honored member. Captain C. E. Burrows was horn at Waukesha, Wisconsin, October 22, 1841, and was aged 65 years, 8 months and 0 days, and his death was the peaceful closing of an honored life. At the beginning of tlio Civil war he enlisted a» a piivate in the Third Michigan Cavalry, before ho had reached his majority, and was discharged with the rank of lieutenant after nearly three years of active service. Captain Burrows was twice married, being wedded to Miss Amanda Atwood, at I'enfwater, Mich., December 8, 18(55. Of this union two children were born, who survive, Mrs. W. 11. I'rice,of Allen, Mich., and Mrs. A. 1.. Smith, of Bonland, Oregon. Mrs. Smith was at the bedside of her father for several weeks before he died. At Montague, Mich., in 1882, Captain Burrows was married to Miss Cora 1. Stockwell, a sister of Hon. A. P. Stockwell, which marriage resulted in three children, two boys and a girl. • The little girl, Josie A., died in 1804, at the age of six years, and the boys, Frank E. and Glenn 8., survive, with their mother to mourn the loss of a loving husbsnd and a kind, indulgent father. Shortly after his war experience, Capt. Burrows engaged in the steamboat business on J.alce Michigan, and later formed a mercantile firm with F. E. Jones, now of this city, which continued for 23 years. Coming to Aberdeen in 1890, Captain Burrows, with H. E. Jones, A. P. Stockwell and Wm. "Hunt, erected a shingle mill in South Aberdeen, and in 1592 organized the C. E. Burrows Co., which entered the transportation business, and for many years controlled the steamboat business on Grays Harbor and the Chehalis river. Of late years this company has devoted its chief attention to logging on tire llumptulips river, with A. P. Stockwell as active manager, Mr. Burrows taking a well earned ease. Still, until attackeil with the fatal disease, last January, he almays took a lively interest in the Harbor Dock, one of the properties of his company. When his physical condition began to assume a serious aspect l ist spring, Captain Burrows went to California in the hope of benefitting his health, but returned in a weaker condition, so that the end was looked for by his family and friends for some weeks. In ttie passing away of Captain Burrows may bo noted the ultimate way of a man who did much to develop the natural resources of the Grays Harbor country ; of a man while so doing, did it in ati unaggressive way, so that it is impossible to find a person who enjoyed his acquaintance who did not respect hini. Hiß peaceful death was but the rounding out of a well-spent life, and his bereaved relatives have the sympathy of the entire community in their loss. Your Liver is out of order.

Inquire at Telephone Office MESSAGE TO DEMOCRACY "UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL" Words of Wisdom to Democrats Prom Senator Rayner, of Maryland. The Aged Statesman Gives Message Worthy of Careful Reading by Every Democrat. A message has just been delivered to the democracy that is worthy of the inoßt careful consideration of the members of the party. The message is from Senator Isidor Rayner, who represents Maryland in the United States senate. As Maryland is one of the states that it is necessary for the democrats to carry to win the next election, this message of advice from her most distinguished son on the course the party should pursue is the more worthy of attention. "Of course," said Senator Rayner, "we all appreciate the fact that when a new issue arises the democratic party must take its stand upon one side or the other, and as new issues devolop parties must enlarge and expand. No one desires to restrict the democratic party either to a dead issue or simply to those that existed at the time of its formation. "Now, have we any principles? I think we have. Has the republican party stolen them? I acquit them of the charge. I think that they are entirely innocent, and I do not believe that they have any felonious intent or design whatever to appropriate them. Is the president a democrat? I most respectfully deny it." Senator Rayner, after showing the lines that divide the two parties, said: "We must not yield the slightest fraction of the supremacy of the states over their own local and domestic concerns. This is our heritage, and we must not barter it for wealth, for progress or prosperity. Prosperity may be only temporary, but the foundations of the republic are perpetual. "In the next place, we are opposed to governmental paternalism. It is a reproach to Jefferson to claim that if he were living he would be in faver of it. I predict, with great respect toothers wtio may differ with me, that the day will never come when the government of the United States will own and operate the railroads of the country. "Let us give the present railroad law a fair test and trial, and if it does not answer the purposes of its enactment let us extend its provisions and supplement its remedies so that it will meet any emergency that may arise. There is one proposition, however, that the democratic party must contend for in this connection, anil that is it must demand a complete obedience to the existing statute. The railroad presidents and otiicers of our trunk lines must be made, once and forever, to realize that they are the servants, and not the masters, of the people." Alter suggesting a platform upon which all democrats could unite, Senator Kayner closed by saying: "If we advocate principles that are not democratic and be again defeated at the polls, then it looks to me as if the hour of disintegration was at hand, because the only thing that has kept us alive through all the strange vicissitudes of our fortune is the fact that wo have never wholly abandoned the historic traditions of our faith, and have never yet, upon all the pages of our history,' Bounded a final retreat. "If the democratic party will only follow Jefiersonian precepts and axioms without attempting a revised edition that he would repudiate if he were living; if it will only unite upon essentials and not divide upon non-essentials; if it will only stand by the old ritual and not attempt to alter it to euit every economic clique or mongrel denomination that is willing to array itself under its banners; if it will only abandon the worship of temporary idols that are broken into fragments with the close of every campaign, and return to the worship of thoee cardinal principles that will remain immutable so long as the republic lasts, regardless of the fact whether parties discard them or not—then I believe that our mission is by no means ended, but that emerging from the apathy and lethargy that now envelops us, we shall be recalled to life to resume the activities of our normal existence and to the accomplishment of our historic destiny," The Herald la the most widely tul paper on Oray'a Harbor.
