IN A TANGLE.
Tiis Oregonian is getting into a terri
ble tangle about the 1905 Fair. It
wants Mr. Furnish, as Governor, to pre
side because he can't make a speech,

side because he can't do anything else

George Chamberlain to preside because
is urbane, accomplished and polished
anf it don't want Bob Inman because he
if Muff and lacks gr.ice. Perhaps the
whole matter will settle itself by simply
eonsWt ring that we are not electing men
to preside at the Fair, but a Governor of
Oregon, and a Mayor of 1'ortland, wh
will each have much more important
duties to perform than the mere cere
monials of the Exposition. But, taking
the two olllcers together, even in the
matter of ceremony, we submit that
our pair beats y our pair. Journal.

Republicans are still circulating the
report that Sheriff Cooke is depositing
money in the Oregon City banks, and in
face of the official denial by both banks
The republicans realize that the re
election of County Clerk Cooper is
almost certain and are now claiming in
competency and extravagance, when it
is well known that Mr. Cooper has
made a most economical clerk despite
the extra work imposed upon him by
new laws. For the pa t two or three
weeks he has been working until nearly
midnight every day to get registration
and election business ready for June 2d

The Enterprise is still claiming the
county indebtedness is but $100,000 (bad
euough), but we still maintain that the
county is nearly $200,000 In debt and
besides a year behind. By juggling with
figures you can make the indebtedness
figure but $102,000, but we still have
about $185,000 (including interest) of
county warrants outstanding. The
amount has been constantly increasing
for several years. What good does a
little figuring on paper amount to when
we still have the warrants outstanding?
All monev on hand April 1st has been
used to take up warrants, and we still
owe over $15,000 on our state tax.
The present campaign has been one of
the cleanest In the history of the county.
The newspapers have refrained from
publishing anything bordering on "mud
slinging," and we believe the voters ap
preciate their efforts.
The cartoon entitled "A Misfit Gov
ernor," first published in this paper
several weeks ago, is again publis-hed
this week. The drawing was originally
mode by a promising young lawyer and
politician of Oregon City, and the idea
was original. This cartoon was con
sidered the best one published in the
state, and the democratic state commit
tee furnished the same to all news
papers that believe in reform.
It is conceded by all, even republicans,
that George E. Chamberlain will be the
next governor of Oregon. Bets are be

sketch of each of the citizens' candi
dates. It is repined that a lot of campaign
dodgers will be issued on or before elec

Voters should not believe all the stuff of
this kind circulated at the eleventh hour.
The Salem Journal published last
week a write-up of Senator Brownell
with a characteristic cartoon.

office, t) our notion, in the county.
The citizens' ticket will no doubt

NO POLITICS )N TEE FAIP.
The position taken by the Hon. H.
W. Corbett., president of the Lewis and
Clark Centennial Corporation, clears up
the matter of connecting the Exposi
tion with politics. His letter to the
Portland Evening Journal eliminates
the troublous element of partisanship
which threatened to'iuiu the prospects
of the great Exposition.
Mr. Corbett speaks with authority
upon the, subject. He has led the
movement for the Fair's success with a
liberal subscription and the contribution
of more valued assist ance in the form of
superior knowledge and executive abil
ity. He stands as the sponsor of the
enterprise, and represents in large de
gree the hopes of the people of this state

The Journal urgds that the Fair be
supported heartity fioin this time on

people throughout the state co-operate
with those of that city. And let every
person within the bounds of the com
monwealth lend a hand to the end that
success may crown the efforts of those
who are laboring so zealously for the
good of the people of this region.
CHAMBERLAIN NOT A GRAFTER.
Thb Oregonian nor the republican
campaign orator have charged that
George E. Chamberlain ever took a
cent of compensation in public office,
but what the law clearly fixed as salary.
Mr. Fulton, who is making the state
campaign for Mr. Furnish, does not
pretend that Mr. Chamberlain has ever
taken a dollar in the way of graft while
When the people of Oregon reflect on
what has been tl. e almost uniform cus
tom among partisan politicians they
must conclude that there is something
to Mr. Candidate Chamberlain.
He has been tried i i the legislature,
as district attorney here and at Portland
and as attorney-general, and he has
done his duty, and has not joined in the
general disease of looting the public.
Isn't he about the kind of a man to
put at the head of the government as an
antidote to this disease? Salem Jour-

lhat Road Question.
I saw in your paper sometime ago an
article from Highland, setting forth a
request as to what the writer wanted in
regard to publio roads and asking that
commissioners and legislative candi
dates expre8 their viewB as they, the
voters, would withhold their support
from any one not agreeing, and asking
that the county commissioners finish
same road to Springwater regardless of

Mr. James B. Taylor, Roberts, Ind.,
"I am at the present time entirely

I took five bottles of Peruna, and feel
better now than I have for five years.

Mr. J. W. Pritchard, Wolf Lake, Ind.,
" I am pleased to nay that I have been
cured of catarrh of tho stomach by Pe
runa. I could hardly eat anything that
agreed with mo. Before I would get
half through my meal my stomach
would fill with gas causing me much
distress and unpleasant feelings for an
hour or two after each meal. But,
thanks to your Peruna, I am now com
pletely cured, and can eat anything I
want to without any of the distressing
symptoms. I can now enjoy my meals
as I used to do, and it is all due to Dr.
