candidates who are seeking the office
Firtt, in order not to try to deceive
you, must say that I have as many
faults as the average man, and when
the campaign begins to warm up the
other fellows will tell you about them.
From first evidence I have learned
that I first opened my eyes in a modest
dwelling on a farm near Lawrnce,
Douglas Count)', Kansas, more than a
half century ago. My father died when
I was eight years old, and I came to
Oregon with my mother in 1870, and
sett I'd upon a homestead in the Yaqui
na Bay country. Two years later my
mother died, and I worked for ranchers
and farmers until I was eighteen, go
ing to the public schools during the
From 1876 to 1893, I worked n the
logging camps, on the stock range and
at steamboating. From 18J3 to 1898

was admitted to practice in 1897, since
which time I have been in the active

While a member of the Legislature
in 1903, I introduced what was known
as the car shortage or demurrage bill.
It was defeated, and in 1907 I again in
troduced it, and being a member of the
Committee on Railroads, got it incor
porated in the Railroad Commission
Bill, which became a law. At this
same session I introduced and secured
the passage of a law providing for the
Dirctors' Parent-Teachers' meetings.
I also at the same session introduced
the Jones Free Locks Bill which be
came a law, appropriating $300,000,
contingent op.n the government appro
priating a like sum, for the purpose of
building new, or purchasing the old
locks at Oregon City, and the operat
ing of the same free to the people by
the government. The government hav
ing failed to appropriate any money
for that purpose, at the 1909 session I
again introduced a bill continuing the
said appropriation of $300,000 for an
other two years, contingent upon the
government making a like appropria
tion to purchase the locks. Since that
time the government has appropriated
this sum and has taken the locks over.
and navigation on the Willamette river
is now free to all.
At the 1907 session I introduced a
resolution to provide for the amending
of the constitution to allow women the
right of suffrage. It passed the house,
but received only seven votes in the
senate. However, since that time the
progressive voters of Oregon have
voted to allow our mothers, wives
daughters and sisters the right of equal
suffrage, and another stake has been
set along the line of good government.
During the 1909 session I introduced
a bill which became a law, repealing a
former act of the legislature granting
the Wiallamtte Valley and Coast Rail
road Company all the tide and overflow
lands on the Alsca, SileU an! Yaquina
Bays. At the same session I introducd
a bill appropriating $100,000 to pay
the Indian War veterans' claims, due
for use and loss of horses in the Indian
wars of Oregon, a debt contracted by
the Oregon Territory and standing nn
paid for over 50 years. This bill pass
ed the House but was killed in the
Senate, but a similar bill became a law
in the session of 1913.
In 1908, upon my own motion and at
my own cost I commenced suits against
the Wells Fargo and Pacific Epxress
Companies of Oregon for a reduction
purpose of giving the homesteader an
opportunity to earn money with which
to live on while improving his home
steid, and to allow these who had chil
dren of school age an opportunity to
aend them to school. This resulted
in the five months' leave of absence
If elected I shall stand squarely and
fearlcsily for legislation in the inter
ests of all the people, for the improve
ment of our rivers and harbors, for the
deepening of the Willamette River
that it may be navigable from Portland
to Eugene at all seasons of the year,
for more and better roads, for the
amending and enacting of our public
land laws to conform to present condi
tions, and for the surveying and classi
fying eft he lands in our forest reserv

agricultural lands may be opened to

Having lived forty-three years in
Oregon, being acquainted with the con
ditions in every county of the district
and with many of the people, having
worked as lumber jack, farmed the rieh
valley lands, ran an Armstrong mow
ing machine on the fertile bottoms
where the timothy, redtop, clover and
tide grass grow six feet high; having
walked nearly every mile of tbe west
line of seven of our counties that bor
der and stretch along the Pacific Ocean
for three hundred milej, from Clatsop
to Curry, pulled stroke oar in a fishing
boat on the moonlit waters of the migh
ty Columbia when the splash of the
Silverside and Chinook was music to
the ears of three thousand fishermen;
double reefed and scodded before a
booming southwester when the storm
king was on and the white caps lit the
way from Sand Island to Astoria, work
ed as deck hand and captain on steam
and sailing vessels on our rivers and
bays, with this personal knowledge of
Oregon I believe that I can be of some
service to the state and people whom I
seek to represent.
If I am elected, come and see me.
Being of modest means, I will not be
able to enteitain you in the latest style
but you will be as welcome as the flow
ers in springtime, and if I only have a
tent on tbe Capitol grounds, the latch
tring will be on the outside, and there
will be no sign "keep off the grass."
