The announcement of Circuit

altogether a surprise as he baa teen

public life which has occupied ' his

Judge Hamilton has served on the
judicial bench for tver 25 years.
During that time he has heard

stantial majority over all candidates
against him. There-Is no doubt but
that he could have again obtained
the office had he desired to run.
The second judicial district in
cludes Benton, Coos, Curry, Douglas,
Lane and Lincoln counties. This
has by common consent been so di
vided that one Judge is elected from
Coos or Curry counties, another
from Lane county and the third
from Douglas county.
Judge Coke, who is now serving
In Coos and Curry county, It Is as
sumed, will again be a candidate.
Judge Coke Is very popular through
out the district and will without
doubt receive a large majority. .
Judge Sklpworth, of Lane county,
will also be a candidate for re-election.
Judge Sklpworth has served
many terms and Is well supported
throughout the district. . In Lane
nnd Douglas county, particularly, his
candidacy will he given strong sup
port. Senator U. L. Eddy, who is now
serving the county In the state leg
islature, has tentatively agreed to
become a candidate. He is known
to be considering the matter but
has not yet definitely dudared him-i
self a candidate. He has always
been interested in legislative work
and the fact that he will be forced
to resign as slate senator to accept
the position of circuit judge, leaving
some of his legislative work unfin
ished, might have a bearing upon
his decision. -
Attorney J. O. Watson is also be
ing freely mentioned as a candidate
and' will without doubt be up for
nomination at the primaries. Mr.
Watson has never . before been in
politics as an office seeker although
he has been a firm worker for the
republican party In campaigns in the
past. At the last election many of
his friends urged him to become a
candidate but for various reasons he
declined to announce himself. Mr.
Watson has been practicing law In
Ttosebnrg for many years and is well
qualified for the position.
Whether or not District Attorney
Neuner will be a candidate depends
largely upon the outcome of the gov
ernment appointments. Mr. Neuner
at the present time Is practically as
sured of the appointment to the of
fice or United States District Attor
ney for Oregon, to succeed his friend
Lester W. Humphreys. Mr. Neuner
has strong support from the major
ity of the delegation and he Is prac
tically conceded tho appointment at
the present time.
agree with" them. 1 doubt whether
any man can be governor of Oregon
who does not rise up early and seek
the office. I have not even set my
alarm clock."
Senator Eddy's record ln the sen
ate at a representative of Douglas
county is an enviable one and as a
result of his business-like policies
he is regarded as the logical man, for
the executve position. A great deal
of pressure will be brought to bear
In an effort to gain his consent to
make the race. It Is thought, and the
voters of Southern Oregon are ex

yesterday enroute to Ills home ln Sa-
em from Crater Lake, stated that
he stopped at the garage In Lapine,
Oregon, where ll was alleged Dr.
Ilrumfield attempted to have a
spring repaired on his car. Mr.
Goodman said the garageman was
positive the man was Ilrumfield as
he had seen a photo of the missing
man. Ho said that Ilrumfield walk
ed into the garage and appeared
very' nervous and excited. He asked
to have a spring repaired, but the
garageman told him that he had no
springs and it would be necessary
to phone to Hind for a new one.
lirumfield then requested him to
send the message and the garage
man said for lirumfield to send the
message. This he refused to do and
left the shop. He went to a nearby
junk pile and picked up the leaf of
an old spring and started down the
road wllh it.

A Comparison Will be Made In Advertisements and Show Win
dows to Prove That The Retail Cost of Living Hu
Materially Decreased In Roseburg.
The week of August 8-13 will be
"Comparative Price Week" in Roso
burg, aud the local merchants are
preparing to show that the retail
cost has materially decreased In the
past year, in Roseburg at least. .
Every once In a while there is
some government official who lives
in some big city who comes out with
an Intervluw or a report to the effect
that whohesale prices hae dropped,
but that retail prices have not fol
lowed suit. This muy be true ln the
large cities, but It hus not been true
In Roseburg and Is not true. Mer
chants here have been able to keep
up with the downward wholesale
trend by advertising, marking down
their goods, getting them off the
shelves as rapidly as tne market fell,
buying now goods at the new prices
aud thus avoiding the bigger loss
they would have had to take eventu
ally had they kept tho markings up
to the regular profit on what the
goods cost them.
During the war, this paper stated
time and time again that the mer
chant who didn't mark his goods up
as fast as the market went up was a
poor business man. The people, how
ever, complained loudly because
some of them did it. They complain
now Just as loudly If they don't keep
up with the market
In this new campaign or education
Roseburg merchants are going to
demonstrate that retail prices In this
town have come down very material
ly. They are going to publish prices
of 1920 nnd prices of today for the
same, article. They are going to
have window displays showing com1
paratlve prices. There will be no
special effort to sell anybody any
thing. There will be no special sale,
no special prices. The entire move

as were lost In all the wars of the
previous 12.1 years from the Napo

wars of 1912-191.1 inclusive. And
this Is exclusive of deaths among
civilians, which are estimated at the
same figure.

which Is almost 20 tlm"S the pre

' suui Is enough to have almost paid
the cost of the government from

an expenditure of over

a movement calculated to eombat the
line of stories given out by paper

They know that, prices in Roseburg
are right and they are going to

will last six days. If you are a
