Editor Wkht SaK:-The Llndcr
mnii bridge cost Polk county Just
twenty-five dollaiv, and three men
worked one aud half day each In
building it. Such a price paid was bad
enough but the method in which it
was done allows how rotteu our
politics are becoming all for the sake of
a court house at Dallna. Several of the
neighbors wauted to put In the bridge
for nothing, but the supervisor wild it
was the business of the county to do
this and so the couuty had to pay over
eight dollars aday for this work. This
is the kind of progress McBce believer
in, and is the kind of prices he pays
The slouxh bridge between J. Smith's
and Iiowisville graveyard wat washed
down stream about one hundred yards,
and forty -five dollars wat paid for
putting it back which took four men
and one team a little over one day, aud
the bridge wat scarcely worth replacing
and will have to be rebuilt soon, This
Is the economy which the people are
not willing to see continued. If such
prices were paid for bridges, where will
our company land in building a new
court house. Voters you can have a
county court which will favor economy
by electing I. Simpson.
If you elect McBee the reckless ex
penditures will continue. You take
your choice on election day.

Monmouth, Or , May X, IWH),
Km roil Wkht Siiiki The editor of
the Jtrmlser sent out a challenge to In
dea'iid'nce that they could have the
use of two columns of his paper to ills,
ens the reason why 1 ndciH'tidence
should le the county seat, Wa did
not accept that challenge, hut did makc
personal burgitlu with him that he
would ubllwli anything that we might
write on the court house for two wicks,
but he would reserve the third bwuc In
full for the eilllwof lJnlln. TheqlUsllloll
as worileil In his ehullciigo was not bo-
fore the people, hence we could not dis
cuss that, but we did give him some
arguments upon certain question that
he did even attempt to answer, Bui
what did he do, Hcciianirod the words
so as to make It appear that the article
spoken of was written from ludeMu-
dence no tollht thinking thereby to
deceive certain voter making them
believe that no one lu the county out
side of 1 ndeNMidctice was Interested In
these questions, and In the second
article "The Lust Say" he changed
"argument" Into the word "assertion"
thereby virtually destroying ImiIi
article aud further we wrote "After
all there may is- more meu at work
upon Hint tramway thau we know of"
tills he at ruck out which is pdilve proof
that there is something about that
"tramway" that will not hear the
light. How is this for fair treatment
to IudcH'lideiicc? We suppose the
lUmittr think that anything I fair In
war even to shooting dowu au enemy
when he meets him under a tl igol
truce aa he did when we made the
bargtilu with him. It must be a weak
case that has to resort to such a policy.
What do the voter say ulsail this?

He was followed by Hon, D. P.
Thompson, the candidate for governor
of Oregon, He reviewed the state ol
the school fund of Oregon, also the
matter of lieu lands. Touched briefly
on the need nf hotter law on assess
ment and taxation; favored the Austra
lian ballot system and favored the
mortgage tax law being rem dieted but
not rtqiealcd. Favored the employment
of state convicts, that If not employed
they will become deranged. Mr.
Thompson then proceeded to defend
himself against thu attacks made upon
him aa being connected with the Ore
gou City liH-ks, owner of national bunks
and atts'klioldcr of the electric light

such as to appeal to the comin ti sense
