Every republican voter of Mal
heur, Harney and Orant counties
should be sure to vote for J W Mc
culloch for I'uhlir Service Commis
sioner, as his election will mean
more to the district than any other
officer, because the position la a
larger one and of more importance
and because Mr. McCulloch Is by far
the best qualified for the position
of any of the aspirants. The retir
ing member Is an attorney, the only
one on the board, mauy of the ques
tlons to he decided require legal
knowledge and Mr McCulloch'a legal
experience specially fits him for the
place. If you do not voto for any

The people of Wisconsin are get
ting over their emotional drunk and
recovering their senses. They de
feated Bob Lafollette In the primar

If thin had happened In the old
fashioned convention, Dob would
have denounced the "ring" and the
"gang" and the "bosses' from every
Chatauqua platform In America, but
the primary was his own invention
and the "people have triumphed."
Speaking of .uKolleito, ho Is the
man who Invonted the commissions
with which Wisconsin and Oregon
are top-heavy. Wisconsin started
out to regulate everything from the
lie of the ash can to the proper

a result. Wisconsin has one of I In
most expensive state governments In
the U. 8. Which Is why the people
