ST. JOHNS REVIEW
ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, MAY 17, 1918.
Our Political News Letter
By F. J. Kupfer.
Tomorrow, Friday, is tho day
for every good citizen to exer
cise his or her rights, and ac
cording to indications we be
lieve there will be nt least 76
per cent of the registered voters
who will cast their ballot.
There has been very little
"mud slinging" in this cam
paign and every candidate bus
confined him3elf in bringing out
his own virtues and qualifica
tions for the ofllco he aspirc3.
In the Senatorial contest Sena
tor McNnry's friends have tried
to ''stir up something," but so
far have not made very much
impression, while Robert N.
Stanfleld has been abused con
siderable on account of his
wealth, the average citizen does
not begrudge him of it, so long
as he has made it honestly. Mr.
Stanfleld during all his life has
made it a rule to follow the Got
den Rule and to benefit his fol
A. V. Orton. Renublican can

mcnt No. G, is a Spanish war
vovcran, having served in Cuba
and the Philippines. He has
been practicing Inw in Oregon
for nine years. Was twice elect
od to tho legislature and made a
good record during his two
terms. Ho was for four years
Register U. S. Land Ofllco at
Lakoview, where he heard and
decided thousands of contested
enscs and helped poor people to
obtain free land. Mr. Urton be
Moves in recommending benefi
cial changes in tho laws.
Among the legislative candi
dates Mr. II. L. Idlcmnn is seek
ing the nomination for Rcpre
scntative. He is specially in
terested in favoring laws for
the working masses. He is the
author of several amendments
to the mechanics' lien law, which
better protects small property
holders and the laboring mnn
from losing his money. Mr.
Idlcmnn in a director in the
Morgan Bushong Investment
Co. Ho hns resided in this city
since ho was 10 years old.
Mr. Elmer E. Pcttingell is
n enndidnte fdr the legislature.
Ho is a lawyer and hns been
prominent in the upbuilding of
hotter labor conditions. Mr.
Pcttingell is well thought of in
tho community and through his
good qualities hns made many
friends. Mr. Pcttingell would
make n good representative and
should rcccivo tho support of
every Inborlng man.
Mr. Sam Martin, tho County
Auditor, is on the ticket for ro
election. Mr. Martin has re
sided in this city for 25 years
and during that time has made
a host of friends. Mr. Mnrtin
has conducted the ofllco of
County Auditor for two succes
sive terms and hus given entire
satisfaction. Ho is always at
tending to his duties, and every
ono who has business with him
invariably receive courteous
treatment nt all times.
Mr. J. T. Wilson. Republican
candidate for County Commis
sioner, is one of our substantial
business men. He has been in
the auction business in this city
for over twenty years and to
day has ono of the largest es
tablishments irtho city. If he
can conduct tho county's affairs
as well as he has 'his own ho
should receive the votes of the
the people. Mr. Wilson has
been a success and he has al
ways conducted his business on
strictly honest methods.
The Knights and Ladies of
Security held another one of
their popular meetings to the
public Mondny night, which was
greatly enjoyed by all present.
The Juvenile orchestra, under
the leadership of Mrs. Frank
Rice, as well as the Juvenile
drill team, under Mrs. Morelng,
came in for more praise than
printers ink can describe. They
putron some fine floor work con
sidering the short time that they
have been organized. Much
credit is due Mrs. Moreing for
her untiring work in this train
ing of the children. At last
Saturday's dance there were
eighteen applications written up
and there were a good many
more written up on Monday
H. M. Waldref's auto contain
ing Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Anson,
Cecil Muchison and Miss Edith
Anson, with Mr. Waldref driv
ing, was run into by another
machine, on Columbia Highway
May 5th. resulting in Mr. Anson
having his collar bone broken
and otherwise bruised, Mr. Wal
dref sustaining a fractured rib
and other members of the party
being badly shaken up. The
report that A. Anson was injur

t i EVERYONE MUST HELP.
Wars cannot be fought without money, and upon tho Treasury center
every financial demand upon the Nation,
The rich of this country cannot alone meet the needi of the Nation;
the men of the country cannot do It alone; the women of the country
cannot do It alone; but all of ut, the people of the United States, dltre
gardlno partlzanihlp, forgetting tclflih Interests, thinking only of the
supremacy of right and determining to vindicate the majesty of American
Ideals and secure the safety of America and civilization, can do the great
and splendid work which 0d has called upon us to do.
