A moot rigid and critical In vestigation of the records by a fault finding IVmoeracy has failed to dis prove the claims that the adminis tration of affairs for the Inst two years has boon all that could be asked by the most exacting constituent. The campaign as a whole has been comparatively free from personalities and that which partakes of mud sling In?, although there has been shown a disposition on the part of some of the Democrats to distort and misrepre sent the actual facts In an attempt to discredit the claims of the Republi cans. These endeavors have fallen miserably flat. The candidates on the Republics ticket from justice of the supreme court to constable are representative men, farmers and business men, who have made a success of their respec tive professions. They are deserving of the large vote that will unquestion ably be cast for them next Monday. Every voter should make It a point to go to the polls and vote.

Genuine CASTORIA always Bears tbo Signature of THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM. Declaration of Principles Adopted at Clackamas County Convention. We, the Republican party of Clack amas county in convention assembled ote with pride and pleasure the ad vancement, prosperity and progress of the nation under and by virtue of the policies of the Republican party. We endorse the aggressive and broad statesmanship of Theodore Roosevelt, and hereby o, ""ard his re nomination for President of the United States. We endorse and commend the ac tion of President Roosevelt in creat ing a precedent for the settlement of labor disputes by arbitration. Whereas, we cave watched the course of Hon. John H. Mitchell and Hon. C. W. Fulton, in their efforts to develop material interest in the state viewed with pleasure their strong support of a canal across the Isth mus, which canal when built and con structed will be the greatest monu ment, next to the abolishmen of hu man slavery, of the Republican party, and, Whereas, we have viewed with satisfaction the able manner in which these two members of the Senate of the United States are representing the state of Oregon and the North west Therefore, be it resolved that we hereby endorse their course in the Senate and appreciate their public service In the state tnd nation at. large. Resolved, that we endorse the pri mary law which is to be voted upon at the June election, and hope that it may become a part of the stat ute law of the stae of Oregon, sincerely believing that the greater participation the voters can take in governmental affairs will be of larg er benefit to good government and otir delegates to the Ftate conven tion are hereby instructed to intro duce and advocate the adoption by the convention of a resolution recom mending the primary nominations bill to the people of Oregon for their approval. Resolved, that the development of Clackamas county requires the con struction and maintenance of good wagon roads, to the end that the people may be enabled to deliver the products of their labor to market wjthln a reasonable time and with safety. We therefore demand a liberal and progressive policy with reference to good roads and safe bridges, and we pledge the nominees of this conven tion to the full and energetic sup port or snch policy. Resolved, that we are in favor of ejecting road supervisors instead of Paving them appointed, and hereby In struct our delegation Id tbe Legisla ture to support a bill to that effect ment concerning, each for the Infor mation of the voters. The constitutional amendment per taining to the state printer proposes abolishing the office of s;ate printer and placing the election and control of that officer with the legislature. Voters generally understand the lo cal option measure which proposes to give each ward or precinct the right to say whether or not a saloon shall be maintained in that district.

Ringer Hermann should have t(o largest majority ever counted for a congressional or state office in this district.

ELECT THE ENTIRE TICKET. With this week another county cam paign in Clackamas county clones. Tbe indications are that the entire Republican ticket will be elected. We can see no valid reason why snch should not be the result The present officers Lave proven capable of dis charging the duties that attach to the respective offices they have filled and for which they are candidates for a second term. County affairs have been well and economically administered dnring the last two years, and In the canvass of the county these officers have bad nothing to conceal or misrepresent. The mot convincing testimonial they have presented in support of their claim to a second term haa been tbe month. In view of these facts, we can scarcely be over-estimated. As submit to any Intelligent voter how I Mr. Hermann stated Tuesday night, in the name of common sense could as the Oregon election goes in June thf office under Mr. Nelson have cost I so will the November presidential within several hundred dollars of j election be influenced.

This was the year in which field deputies were sent out, but does not include the cost of the present-owner maps, which was a separate expense. Tbe expense of running the office for the corresponding year of 1903, under Assessor J. F. Nelson, when field dep uties were again sent out, amounted to only $3,492.95, a saving of $1,457.06 over tbe corresponding year 1901 Tbe cost of malting tbe assessment for the 1904 roll will not exceed $2300, as no deputies will be In tbe field." There has been made some objec Col Veatch, Special Agent Creene and others of Mr Hermann' defam ers should have attended the Repub lican rally In this city Tuesday night Mr Hermann answered each and ev il Is essential that every Republlrao voter In Clackamas county not only go to the polls Monday and rule (J strolght Republican ticket, tut also that h work for the electlo of each candidate on the ticket.

In view of the tactics that bave ben employed by tbe opposition in tbe campaign that concludes with the election Monday, it would not be sur prising to see numerous dodgers and other kinds of deceptive literature and reports circulated at the eleventh hour too late for refutation by the parties sought to be Injured. Voters are cautioned against this sort of thing. The intelligence of the voters B'1 Democratic friends at a time not Among the propositions to be voted on at the election Monday is a con stitutional amendment pertaining to the office of the state printer. The amendment proposes abolishing the office of state printer and placing with the legislature the election of that officer. If there is to he a state printer at all he should be elected by the people, as are all of the other state officers. The people of Oregon have already had some experience with other officers and commissions elect ed by the state legislature, and It was found that they did not work very satisfactorily. Officers elected by the people are responsible directly their constituents for the adminis tration of their respective offices. In (his contortion it has been N amed from good authority that th candi date for sheriff on the Democratic ticket, in event of bis ebsrtlon, has promised a deputyshlp to a woman who sought the same appointment under Sheriff Shaver and was turned down.

I There Is one thing certain and that is this: If tbe present Republican officers, who are candidates for re election, are not successful at the polls next Monday, they will not charge to the county and collect sal aries for their services for the time intervening from the first day of July until the first Monday in July, the time newly-elected officers are in stalled, as was done by some of our A Roosevelt Republican club was organized in Oregon City Tuesday night with a charter membership of 150, and with every prospect of amounting to something.

The possibility of such a contingency being presented, how ever, is decidedly remote. Mr. Starkweather Is opposed to the present law permitting the consolida tion of school districts. Suppose two districts should find It to their ad vantage to unite their school Inter ests, wholly or In part, for a short time or permanently. Would Mr. Starkweather refuse to comply with the provisions of the law, the accept ance or rejection of which is now wholly optional with tbe taxpayers of these districts? Supt. Zlnser, In examining nearly five hundred teachers, has constantly aimed to secure better qualification He has been called upon to settle numerous difference between school offlcers, teachers and taxpayers.
