THE SCHOOL LAND BILL-
(Editorial.)
The school lands of the state
occupied much of the Senate's
time Thursday. A bill was re-
ported out of committee and
taken up for discussion. The
bill reported provided for the
sale of all the public lands of
the state. The fight in the Sen-
ate was opened up by Senator
Stafford by an amendment to
strike out the provision in the
bill providing for the sale of
sections 13, set aside for state
educational institutions. Sena-
tor Stafford made an extended
speech in favor of his amend-
ment and his was followed by a
number of strong speeches made
by other members for and
against the amendment, in fact
Sor and against the sale of the
school lands. To our surprise
©ne of the Senators from this
district, towit; Senator Blair of
Garvin county made a speech
in favor of the sale of the
school lands, notwithstanding
all parts of his district includ-
ing bis own county voted strong
against the sale of the school
lands. The papers report that
when Senator Blair's attention
was called to how his people
had voted on the proposition
that be remarked, "I do not
think that the people under-
stood the proposition submitted
to them or they would have vo-
ted differently." He is also re-
ported by the press assaying;
"If I believed a thing was right
I would support it if all of the
voters in my district were
against it. " We hardly think
that Senator Blair was reported
correctly by the press on this
proposition. "We can't think
that a representative of the
people in a state where "the
people rule" and especially a
Senator on record as favoring
the referendum would be so set
in his opinions as to cause him
to ignore the (expressed opin-
ions of a majority of the people
in his district when such opin-
ions did not coincide with his
own individual opinions. The
Republican representatives in
Oregon did not so arrogate to
themselves, else they would
never have voted for a democrat
to go,to the United States Sen-
ate,
