gage id any new business. Oregon
tina more fool laws than any other
tale, many of these lawa have been
pasted to regulate corporations and

companies coming to the atate to do
business. 'I'be past four yaara baa
aaeo an admlnlitrntiun of the atate

Oregon the butt of the atatea. On
Friday the people bate an oppor
tunity to ni'I. 1 1 men to bold office
for the next two yaara. There ara
good men leaking the nomination!,
men who will out down the taxaa by
doing away with a number of the uaa
leaa oommiaaiona brought into life by
Weat, and repealing many of the

the atate. It ia the duty of every
man and woman to vote only for men
who are free of all antanalamcnta and
are knuwnjto be for a aano admlnia

Give this Job to a man
who will reduce Taxes
and cut down expenses
If vim had an interest in a private business
you would want it conducted on hiiiineis
principles. You have an interest in the
affairs of this State. The State of Orejron
is a business institution run for the benefit
of the people in it who, in a certain sense,
are stockholders in its business interests.
TAXES MUST BE REDUCEDI
In the coming primary election, Charles A. Johns, of Portland,
will ask the vote of every person who believes the State of Oregon
needs to have taxei reduced and expenses cut down. The only way
to reduce taxes and cut down expenses is to apply the same principles
in running the State that you would apply in running your own business.
How many institutions would run along with an increase of oper
ating expenses from year to year f Not many. Well, let's reduce
our taxes and cut down our expenses. Charles A. Johns, of Portland,
is running nn that platform and stands on his platform. Get him on
the job! Start thinking about this today!
Will you elect a man who will cut down expenses and reduce
taxes, or a politician, as our next Governor ' The issue is clear.
One will cut down faxes the other will give jobs to his political
friends. Which do you want ? Paid Advertisement.
