Portland. Oregon, Aug. 21: Where
did Dr. Smith, Democratic candidate
for Governor, get the nice little fixed
u,i Mpeech which he gives almost word
in every place where he talks? There
are some H.-oplc in Portland who are
uu.'haritable enough to the ".Weal
candidate to suggest that the eech
wa edited in the inner editorial office
of t te magnificent new building recent
ly put up by t'ol. Jackson for the
Oregon Journal; they further whisper
that the speech was afterward care
fully censored by Governor West him
self so that nothing dangerous to the
V t interest should apcar therein.
Then, the story goes, after the speech
had been pruned und patched up, it
was type-written on a nice clean nice
sheet of paper and given U lr. Smith
to learn. Those who have heard the
speech in different places declare that
he has learned "Ills little piece" just
a it waa given to hun and is reciting
it without a slip of the tongue.
