WA ACE ELECTION TO BE HELD NEXT WEEK TUESDAY STATE, DISTRICT, COUNTY AND CITY SELECT OFFICIALS HfflMlS SEEN PROBABLE With combe and McNary Will Both Be Rwhnsen Seems To Be The The Belief At This Time Next Tuesday there will be elect ions held for the selection of state, district, county, and city officials. Some of these men will be elected for tow years only, while In some In stances, six year terms are to be fill ed. As a general proposition, it teems poor year tor the man who is seeking to replace an official who has made good. The efforts to defeat Withycombe There's bareiPec reoetrorSoyatTnrSo for governor by State Senator Walter M. Pierce are baring but little effect in the state at large it is said, and the governor will succeed himself by large vote is the prediction that is being freely made just now. Senator McNary will no doubt be elected to succeed himself, although Oswald West is doing everything in his power to defeat the senator, re gardless of the fact that he stated at ' the time McNary was elected that he should be selected to succeed him self at this time. In the county there has been but little interest in the campaign tip to the last few days, outside of the act ivity of the candidates' themselves and their immediate friends. The three-cornered contest for sher iff makes that contest seem uncertain although each of the three men are claiming a lead over the other two. One week from today we will tell you which one of the three had thi sfig nred out correctly. The Caunty Judge contest between Judg Walace and Col. F. Smith is growing more spirited every day, and each of the men believes himself to be the strongst man in th rac. Because of the illness of Mrs. Wal lace, most of the activity in this con test seems to be left to Mr. Smith. As in the case of the sheriff con test, we will tell you all about the strength of these men next week. There is no contest on the other coun ty offices. The city offices are not much sought after, and there will be but little interest in this part of the elect ion. w. s. s. DON'T SWAP HORSES LESS THAN TWO WEEKS HENCE a general election will be held in Oregon. It is the du ty of the electorate of this state to return Senator McNary and Representatives McArthur, Haw ley and Slnnott to congress and to keep James Withycombe in the governor's chair. Each of these five men has proved himself 100 per cent. Am erican, 100 per cent, efficient in every war work, and 100 per cent, loyal to the administration In its war aims. Each of them has been weighed and found not wanting. The next two years will be a most critical period in the his tory of this nation. Obviously, it is the part of prudence to re tain tried and true men in offic ial capacity. This is no time for new and inexperienced men. Keep those who in every way are known to be trustworthy. Don't swap horses in the middle of the stream. w. s. s CEDARS HAVE LUNCHEON Young Ladles of The Presbyterian sunaay hcnool Hold Their Annual Session The Cedars, the young ladies' class or the Presbyterian Sunday school, enjoyed a luncheon in the basement of the church Sunday after the ser vices.

STATE OF OREGON, County of Marlon We, the undersigned, constituting the State Tax Commission of Oregon, hereby certify that In our opinion it is necessary to, levy an amount of State taxes for the fiscal year 1919 larger by $940,000.00 than the amount limited by the Constitution of Oregon, unless specifically authorized by a vote of the people. From careful Investigation we believe that the pro posed specific Increase of the State levy of taxes tor 1919 Is necessary that deficiency debts Incurred for mainte nance of State Institutions and departments may be paid, that Increased cost of necessary labor and supplies during the ensuing blennlum may be anticipated, that unavoid able obligations In war emergencies may be met and that the credit of the State may be preserved. The amount specified is estimated as equivalent to an average levy of one mill on the dollar of the total assessed valuation of the State for the current year.
