Candidates Make a Gratifying
Enthusiastic Campaign Be
ginning. The citizens candidates held their first
cunipain meeting at Oswetro Saturday
night, and were greeted with an atten
tive and enthusiastic audience. Sheriff
J.J. Cooke called the meeting to order,
and Henry Gans was chosen as chair
man. All the candidates were present,
except two.
U. VV. Rbley, the candidate for com
missioner, assured his auditors that he
would look afier the affaira of the county
in a careful and economical manner.
Dr. J. W. Powell, the candidate for
coroner, stated that a physician in tljat
office, could the better protect the inter
ests of the county, as it oftentimes saved
the expense of calling in a physician.
He claimed that an approximate saving
of $125 per year could be made to the
county by electing a physician to the of
fice of coroner.
Elmer Dixon, the nominee for county
judge, made a abort but forceful ad
dress. He believed in restoring the
county judge to his old place as judge of
the county court, and bad the, utmost
laith in the prediction that ihe-citizens
movement would . carry Clackamas
J. E. Jack, the nominee for sheriff,
was. born and raised in Clackamas
county, and bad always lived here. He
was practically familiar with the sheriff's
office, having been a deputy in the of
fice for four years.
U. W. Grace, the nominee for senator
made no pretensions to oratory . Hon
est deliberation was of. more impor
tance than oratory in legislative bodies.
He managed his own business success
fully, and would look after the peoples'
business in the state senate in a way,
that would prove creditable to himself
and the county. Oratory was not nec
essary to pass bills in legislatures, for
the greater part of the woik whb done in
the committee room.
Gilbert L. HedgeB, one of the nomi
nees for representative, was the next
speaker. He was a member of the last
legislature, and it was a two to one
proposition with the Clacknmas county
republican delegation. Kruse had lit
tle to say, mi ' Talbert less. The only
speech tlm' Kruee made was: "Mr.
Speaker, 1 uui sick, and waut to go
home." Mr, Hedges followed with an
eloquent sppeal for the citizens party,
and talked practically on its principles
and its uliimate objects. Kruse
and Talbert voted against reducing the
railroad fare to 3 cents per, and Brown
ell was chairman of the railroad com
mittee in the senate, that killed the bill.
E, H. Cooper, the nominee for clerk,
made a few remarks peitinent to the
Chaides F. Clark, another nominee,
for representative, said that "A Man
Ought to be a Man," and followed w ith
forceful arguments, delivered in a most
covinoing way in favor of the citizens
movement. He was a republican, at 1
would support the party outsi ie of the
present county conditions. It was nec
essary for a citizens movement to cor
rect the present abuses in Clackamas
county. One trouble, there was too
much legislation. There ought to be
fewer measures formulated, and they
should be good ones .
0. VV. Eabtham, another cand date
for representative, addressed the meet
ing in a sound,, practical way. He is
the son of a pioneer of '49, who located a
donation land claim in Clackamas
county. The speaker was the youngent
of 11 children, and was raised on a farm.
He said, there is no such a thing as lib
erty in Clackamas county ; the taxes
are 32 mills outside of the cities, and the
psople are oppressed and ground down.
He drew comparisons with the taxes
and expenditures of some other coun
ties. Sheriff Cooke tore the allegations, pub
lished in the Enterprise into shreds, and
showed how Senator Porter's bill for the
creation of a separate board of commit
(doner, provided for changes in the
Sheriff's office, that made it more ex
pensive. He called attention 'to many
other examples of misrule in Clacka
mas county. , How the assessor's office
bad kept two, men for months making
abstracts, and they were now Bhouting
for the republican machine.
Henry Gans, the . chairman of the
meeting, was called on, and his terse,
pointed remarks in favor of the citizens
ticket, brought forth hearty applauie.
The speakers were greeted with fre
quent rounds of applause, and the close,
the entire audience joined Charles P.
Clark in three deafeniDg cheers for the
