It is always a matter of pleasnre
to be able to say of a citizen, there
is a man who is, indeed a man. j
There are men, and there are men;
but in the genuine, unalloyed ar
ticle, there are always the four es
sentials of integrity, sobriety, prud
ence and goodness. Measured by
this standard, there is one man in
Benton county of whom not one who
knows him will hesitate to say,
"He is, indeed, a man." That one
is Peter Rickard, ex-sheriff and ex
commissioner. Known from bord
er to border of the county, respect
ed and honored by his political op
ponents, idolized by his own par
tisans and esteemed always and ev
erywhere, Peter Rickard, is before
the voters for election to the office
of commissioner. For four years,
he served the people in that posi
tion, a most difficult position to
satisfactorily fill, and yet it is true
of him that his honesty of purpose
and sincerity of motive is such that
', not one word of criticism was ever
uttered against him as a result of
his administration of the office. On
the contrary, he . was called from
the commissionership to the sheriffs
office, and there for four years he ser
vedthe people of the county with that
same steady goodness and sincerity
that made the man and his name
respected and esteemed in every
home in the county. -
Peter Rickard did not seek the
" nomination for commissioner. It is
a rase of the office seeking the
man, because universally and ev
erywhere in the county, there is a
feeling that he is the man for the
position. Conservative in all things,
determined when necessary, just
and honest in every act, a man of
affairs, successful in his own busi
ness, Peter Rickard is essentially
and distinctively the man whom the
people want for the place.
PUSHING HIS CAMPAIGN.
Horace Locke is making an ag'
gressive campaign for the office of
county recorder. He is.' a .."tho
roughly honest and straightfor
ward boy, ready to help himself
and energetic in the effort to do so.
He is himself, and always has been
of the plain people, and his candi
dacy appeals strongly,, to them.
"Wherever he has gone, through
the country, he has been warmly
received, and a strength has de
veloped that will be far stronger
by election day.

A MATTER OF BUSINESS. ,
The candidacy of Victor Moses
for cleric is on his merits- as an ofhV
cial. He has -' been tried in the
place,: - and the result - is fully
known. No county in Oregon ev
er had a better clerk, and few have
had as good a one.' As excellent
in their work as were the late B.
W. Wilson and Virgil Waiters it
is no injustice to say -that in some
respects Mr. Moses is even super
ior to them. He is an expert as a
typewriter and since their time a
typewriting machine has been ev
olved that can be used in making
county records. Its use puts per
haps three times as much matter on
a page and the expense for pur
chase of record books ; is ... corres
pondingly saved. Copying can be
done three times as fast with it as
can be done by hand, which results
in a great saving of time. In ad
dition, typewritten records are up-to-date,
modern, and the only pro
per -way for keeping public records.
Incidentally, Mr. Moses has pur
chased his own machine, and has
placed it at the disposal of the
county. Thus, the question of
Victor Moses re-election, becomes
not what are his party ; affiliations,
but a cold business proposition- so
plain that it cannot be dodged, de
nied or evaded. He ought to be
re-elected to a second term in ' the
office because he is the best man in
the countv for the place, because it
is economy for the 'taxpayers to do
so, and because there should be
recognition and reward for a man
so prompt, so faithful, so capable
and so obliging in the discharge of
his duty. -
; ; BILLY BUCHANAN. , r.
The proper and only place for
the county treasurer's office is at
the court house, and that is where
Billy Buchanau has always kept it,
When a man receives his county
warrant in the clerk's offi:e, it is
convenient for him to cross' the
hall to the treasurer's office ' and
there have his arrant either ' en
dorsed or - cashed. In the room
provided for the treasurer, there' is
a fire proof vault, where valuable
books and papers are intended to
be, and always should - be. kept..
Ever since Billy Bushanan has
been treasurer the latch string has
always hung out on his office door
at the court house, and it will con
tinue to hang there just the same
at all times if Mr. Buchanan is re
elected. : Ice cream season opens at Starr's May

" Mr: Locke died at one o'clock

aged two became violently ill with
what is supposed to be the same
disease. As this article is written;

a year after the arrival -on what is
now the old homestead, or Septem

His boyhood was spent on the farm
and in . attendance at the public
schools of the vicinity. In "due
time he entered the Agricultural
College, and was graduated from
that institution with the class of
l875- June 20, 18707 he was mar
