In common with all oewa-

Trlbuno, has come out edltorial-
ly for District Attorney George

feat George M. Brown for re- I In Douglas county. B. Fenton Is not
electon as prosecutng attorney.
By his Impartial enforcement of
the law Mr. Brown has evoked
their enmity. This fact, coupled
with his well known ability as
a prosecutor, should Insure Mr.
Brown'B election, and the vot-

number of Inmates of the lower
world. These Creatures were well
known to Kenton, who apparently al -

Fenton was marshal of KorAburg at
tho time, but for nil of that, he wink
ed at the offenses and claim ;d he
had no knowledge ofthel being.
Finally, The News tuok o light

conclusion, B. Fenton and his follow

self respect.
With all. of these facts, enhanc
ed by the argument that Kenton is
the brewery candidate and the very
man who hns played the rirt of a
lieutenant for Mayor Micelll for
somo tlhio past, can the voters of

The voters of Douglas county who
advocate good government are on to
Kenton. '
George Qulne, the present incum
bent of the sheriff's office Is a clean
and honorable citizen, a man of good
the person for sheriff of Douglas
county, considering that his past rec
ord will not stand the closest Investi
gation. During his incumbency as
marshal fo Roseburg he has done
nothing, whatever, save arrest a few
helpless drunks who were unable to
walk. Did anyone ever hear of Ken
ton raiding a "near" beer emporium?
Did anyone ever claim that Fenton
ntjtempted to njd Roseburg of Its
glided palace of Iniquity? No, Fen-
I ton waa never accused of doing any
thing like that.
George Qlilne Is the logical, the
capable and the efficient candidate
for sheriff He should receive your
votei Mr. Douglas County Citizen.
