BUB8C11IPTION Ono Year, $2.00
With so many candidates nsplrlng
for tho nominations of both parttos
and tho fact that thoro la, ftp
parontly, but slight lntorost In tho
primary, It Is hard to forecast tho
Judgod by tholr past records thoro
nro only throo formldablo caudldatos
for tho republican selection; Govern
or Olcott, Spoakar Uoan and Sena
tor I'attorson. Tho last two named
llt would nppoar aro tho only ones
who linvo a chanco to dofoat tho
Olcott'B dotcat would bo easier It
tho Impression did not provall that
ho will win. Of lato, howovor,
thoro Is an Indication that his friends
aro not so sangulno, and thoro Ib a
growing Impression that ho may bo
dofoatcd. This Is especially trua
whon tho rotors stop to think that
had ho usod tho gubernatorial voto
qowor mora oxtonslroly during tho
Inflation period, taxes would not bo
an high an they aro today.
This Is tho must potent argument
that tho governor's opponontn havo,
and nono of them seem to bo over
looking it. Aside from this thoro
Is not a great doal In tho governor's
record to attack. Ho has beon
particularly fortunato In having had
faw real problems to faco.
So far as knowlodgo of tho
machinery of stato and broadth of
oxporlonca goes, Spcakor Ilenn ap
pears to bo tho bOBt Qualified of tho
candidates, and has In tho past
shown a greater degreo of sympathy
for Kastorn- Oregon than any of
them. On that ground nlono Mr.
Dean Is ontttlod to tho hearty con
sideration of tho Kastorn Oregon
Sonator I'attorson, too, has had
long oxporlonco In tho luglslatlvo
halls, and Is wldoly known. Tho
offlco would bo well cared for by
him. Of coumo with all tho others
ho is plodgod to nn oconomlcal pro
gram, ns Ih Speaker Dean. Hoth
mou nro strong enough so that thoy
would accomplish n great deal In
that respect. So far as Olcott Is
concorned thoro Is nothing In his
rocord to show that ho could ac
complish n great deal In thnt regard.
Tho manner In which ho called tho
spoclat fair session and tho failure
to deliver ono way or nnothor, Is
llkowUo not making much of n lilt
for tho gayornor.
and as ho has becomo a lcador In
tho stato proesv association, so too
wilt ho bocomo a loader In tho legis
lative halls; It ho is olectod and
wo bollovo ho will bo olocted.

Ovor In Lauo county n peculiarly
Interesting situation has nrftion.
Itecontly a numbor of cltlioim ot.tlio
county's metropolis, Eugene, motor
od to Cottago Orovo to urgo Elbort
IK'do, editor of tho Cottago Orovo
Bontluol to run for tho legislature.
Tho rumnrkablu thing nhout this Is
that Eugene Itsolf has moro candl-J
datos than tho district can oloct, and
yot mauy of Eugono'a leading cltl
'cons nro roquentlng tjio odltor of an
outsldo papor to represont thorn In
tho stato lawmaking body.
This unusual situation would not
havo arlsou without a reason, and
that reason Is to bo found in Mr.
Dodo hlmsolt and his constructlvo
rocord as a citizen and a publlshor.
Not only is Mr. Dedo an ablo
nowspapor man, but ho is a con
structive, ouerKOtle, capahlo and
Bticcossful business man, IIo knows
his business from tho typo-stlck to
tho editorial sanctum. Thoro Is no
bettor prlntor lu Oregon than Elbort
Ilodo, and thoro nro fow mou In tho
utnto bettor ncquatntcd with tho
probloms of tho public than Is he.
Having known Mr. Dodo for moro
than 20 years, having worked with
him at tho caso, wo know that tho
pooplo of Lane county will honor
thomaelvos in his oloctlon. Thoro
Is nothing half hoartod In tho way
Dodo dooa things. Ho Is a slncoro,
though Bomotlmoa cnustto critic; but
ho is always constructive In his
orltlclsma, for ho Is a chip off tho
Llko hla fnthor, tho famous Con
gressman from Minnesota, Dodo has
a keon sonso of humor, Ho has tho
faculty of soelng tho Incongruous,
tho ridiculous, and of prosentlug the
truth In a piquant and Illuminating
Elbort Dedo will novor boro tho
lawmakers with ponderous eloquence
but with pungent paragraphs ho will
toar tho mask of sophistry and
puncturo tho bubblo of ldlo oratory.
Judging by tho manner In wbtch he
has ondoared hlmsolt to tho fellow
mombors of tho profession of this
stato, ho will likewise win abundant
friendship in tho legislative body;
ASK YOUll MILK MAN
Ask your milk man If ho has had
his cows tcstod to dotormlno whothor
or not thoy nro froo from tuber
culosis? You owo this to your family, to
yoursotf and to tho public gcnornlly
Dy doing this you will Impress upon
your milk man tho tact that tho
pooplo aro allvo to tho nocd for puro
clean milk and that it will pay him
to hoed tho warning.
Dut your action should not ond
thoro. If your milk man says ho
has had his cows tostod, nak him to
show you his certificate of that fact.
Thoro need bo no troublo for him to
carry that certificate with him for n
fow days until alt of his customers
havo soon It. '
Thon contlnuo your campaign. If
ho docs not nnswor "yes," and li not
ready to show his cortlflcato, stop
taking milk from him. That Is tho
only snfa thing to do. A mnu who
cares so llttlo for tho health and
Bafoty ot hlmsolt, his family and his
customers that ho wilt not tako this
nocossary and roasonablo precaution
Is, not worthy of your buslnoss, ho ts
not a aafo man to bo IntriiBtcd with
tho purveying of food.
You do not nood to tako milk thai
comes from n sourco 'which Is not
clean and has not been oxamlncd.
Thoro nro dnlrymon nhout Ontario
whoso hords havo boon Inspected,
and thoy nro entltlod to consideration
and to patronage for they nro doing

It would seem that ovory mothor
would ask that question of tho milk

Notablo among tho dovolopmonts
of tho fpaturoloss campaign which
Is now in progress in Orogon Is tho
nttacks bolng mndo upon tho Orogon
Primary system by thoso who woro
Its ardont champions n decado ago;
tho Eugene Ounrd and tho Capitol
Journal of Snlom.
Thoso two publications rightly aro
Inmontllng tho quality offorod tho
pooplo from which to mako a choice
for a numbor ot tho stato offlcos.
Thoro (i no objoctlon bolng mado to

much quantity, aud too llttlo

Is oxtromoly oxponslvo.
Whoro ns years ago thoro was but
ono election, now thoro nro two,
each ot which cost tho pooplo approx
imately $100,000. Tho cost is
not tho big oloinont, Important
though It ho; but tho roaults aro uot
worth It. Orogon is liko tho llttlo

result Is fow mon of real merit

Gradually thoro Is apparently, a

Tho notablo thing about the

from many peoplo who havo hitherto

Perhaps it Is right to say that
it is not the fault ot tho primary
