THE OPEN FOKUM
Tlie reason tho Courier asks voters
(o give Congressman llawlcy's place
to bred Ilolliriter of Coos County, is,
because Mr. Hawley is not making
good tho name reason the Courier
would let go of an incompetent print
or and put another man in his place
There isn't an individual or news
paper in this district that can ask for
Mr. Hawley's return to congress on

During his past four years in con

Editor Recorder: When a public
official la publicly arraigned for an al
lied error in the conduct of public
' luinesH entrusted to him, with a lot
f fooliah assertions reflecting upon
liia capability, he is entitled to be
.oard in his own behalf. The facts
oncoming public business nre always
mry oasy to got at, but tho "knocker"
-'io spreads misleading, not to say
false statpmonls concerning public
finiva and public officials, correctly
inures that the average citizen is to
uay with his own problems, to ques
tion the corroctnefj'i of such statements
Hence if someone doesn't wade in and
show up tho truth in these matters,
he "knocker's" lies gain credence,
nd dissatisfaction results. Ever
iinco the improvement of the "Town-
--.hp Lino" road was started, there
have been spread about, persistant
rumors of "favoritism," "extrava
gant methods," ami even "graft," all
smanaling from sources having
grudges because of rejected exces
sive bids, or political "axes to grind."
rheso rumors have all been directed
gainst Mr. G. J. Armstrong, County
Commissioner from your section of
he county, for the main purpose of
influencing tho voters against his
candidacy for reelection. When the
bids were received for the several
works upon the Township Line road,
they were, with the exception of Mr.
-ounts' bid for grading the first mile,
ill so out of reason, that' I protested
igorously that at tho prices bid, the
Special Tax money would be all us
ed up before any considerable show
ing had been made, and rcccommend-
ed the rejection of all of tho bids,
which rcccommendation the County
Court (of which body Mr. Armstrong
s but one member), after close ques
tioning concerning my estimates,
finally adopted, and ordered the
works done under the direction of my-
olf, as the law provides. We have
proceeded with the works as rapidly
the necessary legal forms would
permit, and have accomplished to
.Into as much work as would have re
ulted if the work had been let at the
prices bid, but strangely enough have
used;litle more' ''than half of the
money that those bids would have
oniumed. ; i , , j i .

BE JUST TO EASTERN OREGON
Although embracing about two-thirds of the state's area, Eastern Oreeon now has no state school of any character. Restore to it
the Eastern Oregon State Normal School by voting
Cast your ballots for the cause of education, for the betterment of the public school system, for the better training of Oregon's
young men and women who wish to become teachers. It will add but a feather's weight to the burden of your taxes
ONE FORTIETH OF A MILL
or two and one-half cents annually on every thousand dollars assessed valuation, as provided in the millage tax bill referred to the people
by the Legislative Assembly, will restore to the state's use the Eastern Oregon Normal's plant at Weston, consisting of one main build
ing, two dormitories, a president's cottage, and 10 acres of ground.
Eastern Oregon needs this school. Oregon needs it, and also needs the Southern Oregon Normal at Ashland. Three normal
schools are none too many for this great commonwealth.
Reflect that if you pay taxes on $2000, the permanent and adequate maintenance of the Eastern Oregon Normal will cost you but
five cents each year.
