What Are the UsoesT
In the heat of the political canvass In
Clackamas county some of the issues of the
campaign appear to have been obscured.
Personalities have been crowded forwarvi
and in some esses the tendency has been to
cloud the questions that are of real interest
to the voter.
In the lirt place the voters want a more
equal distribution of the burden of taxation.
It is not that the amounl of taxes is too
much but it is the unequal distribution
that makes the farmer dissatisfied itli the
present system. The reieal of the perni
cious mortgage tax law and law permitting
deductions for indebtedness are two of the
things which the people absolutely demand.
While the intent of the laws may be all
Tight, in practice thev operate to permit the
rich to escape paying taxes, thus saddling
all the burden on the poor.
As hearing on the matter of taxation it
may be well to recall certain resolutions
passed at the last republican county con
vention. These were
1. Demanding the repeal of the mortgage
2. Favoring "a law assessing all real and
personal property (except credits) wherever
said property may be found, to the legal
possessors and owners of the same, taxing
no credit and allowing no deduction for in
debtedness." 3. The same basis of valuation in all the
4. A law making the offices of sheriff and
clerk salaried and not to exceed $1,800 a
This is practically the platform of the re
publican party in Clackamas county this
year. And these are matters that every
man who owns a home in the county can
Head improvements, stock laws and vari
various other things have their weight but
they can't over-shadow the tax law ques
tion. On this platform the republicans have put
forth clean, honest, capable men. The leg
islative candidates are pledged to work for
the reforms indicated. The nominees for
county offices are in full sympathy with
them and they are men of unimpeachable
character. They stand for principles that
may be put in practice on earth now not
for visions we hoe to realize in the sweet
bye and bye after we have starved to death
A. 8. Lawtoit, of Canemah, is a, reliable,
steadfast, intelligent, honest and capable
man who may be trusted to serve the best
interests of his constituents and the state at
large in the legislature. He is an old sol
dier, a quiet and industrious citizen, a man
of charming personality, and he will reflect
honor on Clackamas county. Don't scratch
A. S. Law ton.
The Queer People's Party.
The people's party contains many well
meaning persons who are honestly striving
to make life easier to live. But the leaders
in the movement are generally those of so
little stability that they cannot get a footing
in either of the old parties or they are dis

He Can't Be Trusted.
Thedemocrats have a man for representa
tive whom the people of Clackamas county
will take peculiar delight in not voting for.
He is A. M. Lovelace of Damascus.
Mr. Lovelace signed the petion to the
legislature praying for attaching all that
part of Clackamas county north of the
Clackamas river to Multnomah county.
There were fifty -six other signatures on the
petition. In but two weeks' time a remon
strance with more than MOO names was got
ten up and sent to the legislature. So Mr.
Lovelace is with a hopeless niinorily. . The
people of Clackamas county will never trust
him to represent them in the legislature.
The original petition having the name of
A. M. Lovelace in his own handwriting is
in possession of the Entespbisi. There is
no possible doubt about the matter. He
signed the petition to annex to Multnomah
county all of Clackamas lying north of the
Clackamas river a territory containingsev
en or eight bridges and other improvements
for which Clackamas county Is now in debt
Capt. J. 0. Wkthkbkll will be 'our next
county treasurer. There is no doubt on
that point. And it is a source of gratifica
tion to everybody who knows him, be they
republican, democrat, people's party or
prohibitionist, that the kindly, capable and
honest old veteran will have charge of the
county moneys during tfie coming two
years. Give him a rousing vole. He is no
politician. The bloom of his life was spent
in the trenches defending his country's life.
Thk jurors whom Way wheedled into
agreeing with him in opitt.ingS. M. Kanis
by for recorder very proerly declined to
make; oath to the statement under which
their names appear. Mr. Itamsby, how
ever, is able to furnish the sworn statement
of other jurors that the allegations against
him are wholly untrue. To swear to a false
hood is perjury. Way's whole fabric is
simply a lie, windy, brutal and disreputable
Few men have been more systematically
vilified in apolitical campaign than Henry
Jewell, candidate for representative. But
Mr. Jewell has silenced most of the attacks
against him by his positive and straightfor
ward denial of then- truth and he will get a
large vote. He is a farmer who has toiled
long years and wrung from the soil an hon
est competence. He knows the needs of
the people and will urge them with dili
gence. Vote for hint.
You can always tell what Ed. Whitlock
writes in his courier because of its mellow
iridiscence. It has all the colors of Bock
beer, stale ale, bay rum, kerosene and Ja
maica ginger. It hus a fizz and foam like
soft soap suds. It sounds like a weird wind
blowing in a bung hole. He sings like a
I.rr the voters not forget the matter of
confining hogs w hen they vole next Mon
day. Hog are the most annoying beasU
that can run at large. It is almost impossi
ble to fence against them and they create
sad havoc in the rroia. There are few
farmers who do not every year suffer losses
by marauding hogs that would much more
man pay lor keeping their own In prir
enclosures. Of course there come the In
convenience of having to take care ol one's
own hogs but it is in the line of progreas that
must come to the farmers of Clackamas
county. It Is a matter for the fanners to
settle by their votes. They should not Ig
nore (lie question.
Tna new editor oi the Courier, Ed. Whit
lock, is such a sweet-scented, spiritual
luanlity that he may almost lie said to be
' w ithout body, parts or passions.'' Certain
it is that the terrible "tongue-lashing" ad
ministered to Mr. Maddock (.according to
that delectable shoot) was not administered
in Mr. Maddock's presence. Kddie tin-
itoithtedly thought whole gobs ol mean
tilings he might say if he were not too cow
ardly, and then be went and " wrote il up"
for his paper. He was evidently designed
for a novelist -one of the mad-nanies-llckod-the-lurid-atmosphcrekiud.
