"I have a very strong conviction that Oregon haTbecn
discriminated against by the National Government in
many ways. Mr. btanlieid shares tins feeling and pro
mises, if elected, to correct it as far as it lies in his power
to do so. Senator JUcNary denies that any such discrim
ination exists, lie was quoted in a dispatch from Wash
ington to uio Oregon Journal as saying that he took no
stock in the statement that here hau been discriminaion
against Oregon. Of course, if lie believes that there has
been no such discrimination h ewlii make no otfort to re
move it." iS. B. Huston who withdrew from the Senator
ial contest and is supporting JStanlield.
Why do the Telegram and Journal complain that
Seattle is always taking payrolls away from Portland,
then attack Staneld because lie has built up an inudstry
which benelis Oregon and Portland, creates a payroll anil
adds thousands of dollars to the tax list' Why lias Tort
land lost so much to Seattle is it because tlu'i e are ele
ments in Portland, always ready to knock any one who
tries to help the community.
Five lawyers comprise the Oregon delegation at
Washington, there- has not been a business man, farmei,
or toiler in the delegation in a generation.
Why has the Chamber of Commerce felt it r.o.vssary
to hire a special representative at a senator's salary of
7500 a year to look after Oregon's interests?
Stanfield will not be dictated to and controlled by a
political boss, by corporations or by newspapers, but he
will serve the people of his state, playing no favorites and
giving a square deal.
No one has ever said that Bob Stanlield is a double
crosses, or that he is sellUh or not liberal with his resour
ces or his friendship. There isn't a lazy bone in his body,
lie has been a toiler all his life and never held a cushv
Raised on the range, lie is no silk-stocking. Stanlield
has built up from nothing through const reuti'vo labor un
til today he is one of the genuine assists of Oregon. He
did not marry his money, nor did he inherit it he worked

It will be impossible for me to
visit all the voters of the Repub
lican party before the primaries
and I am using this plan to place
before you the facts which you as
voters should knnjW as to my
qualification for the position 1
am asking of the voters of Po!
One matter, only really is vital
and that is am I qualified? I am
a graduate of LaCreole academy,
had special training in the Port
land Business College, attended
law college for one year and was
admitted to practice law in Ore
gon, thus qualifying myself to
apply legal know ledge to business
matters, and the "clerk's office"'
requires both hns;ncss knowledge H
and a fair understanding of law.
I therefore feel that I ant quali
fied. Personalities do not usually
enter into polities, except as to
honesty, integrity and ability,
and I have lived in Polk county
'or many years and the voters
know me and I need not go into I
detail in these maters.
I will tsate .however, that I, js
was born in Polk county, educat
ed in Polk county and lived in
Polk county all my life, over 40
years, except when in service in
the Plullinine Islands in 1808;
I first entered business in Dal
las in 1!X)4, have never held or
asked for political position, ex-1
ccpt being a councilman in Dallas
in 1907 and feel that I am not
asking a favor as one who has
made "politics" a business, but
rather as one who is asking sup
port entirely on my business
(.ualifications, legal training and
Tn considering the different
candidates I ask no favors except
that to which I am entitled by
reason of the facts I have stated
