out the allowanco of $900 per annum for
a ueputy commissioner. Mr. Hale pro
posed further to amend by cuttine out
all appropriations under the act, and the
acuaie was on. "
"I speak," announced Mr. Hale; "as a
man unbiased and untrammefed. I have
n-" political favors to ask, and I do not
fear to take a strong stand against this
bill. I am a candidate for no office, and
T stand here as a man who cannot be
swayed from his honest convictions. No
body Is a better friend of the laborer than
I, but I am opposed to taxing farmers
for the benefit of any labor organization.
I Insist that this appropriation be not

Mr. Reed fought the amendment of
Judge Hale. "It .will kill the bill." he
cried. "If the commissioner got no money
from the state the act 'would be enforced
In the Interest of somebody who would
give secret compensation. "If the bill is
bad," said Mr. Reed, "let's kill it; if the
bill Is not bad, let's leave In this section."
Mr. Bailey made a atrontr defense of the
bill against the amendment. He said that
laboring men needed the bureau, and that
they were worthy ot consideration as well
as anybody. The bureau was to compllo

the laboring men. "This Isno new

voted down because ho wished ,to havo

"inevKpubllcan party," he said loudly
'Moes recognize labor. This House ha

Mr. Cornett said he represented labor,

States. Wo should accord to these people
the privilege of "having a commissioner.
The nearer, we get to our employes the
better. As citizens ot Oregon we owe
this to them."
Mr. Eddy also spoke against 'the amend
ment and for the bill. "In all states," he
proclaimed, "where this legislation' has
been delayed, a factory system has grown
up detrimental to the public welfare. We
are not going to be radical, but we are go
ing to give labor reasonable protection.1
Mr. Hale again came to the defence of
his motion. "The people of Oregon should
not be taxed for this bureau," he ex
claimed. "Let the Legislature keep In
mind Its duty." He cautioned the mem

of what he knew not." If organized la

Dr. "VV. Norton Davis.
It has always been our rule to promise
nothing that we, arc not. able to accom
plish with absolute certainty. , Realizing i
that no pno physician can successfully
undertake to cure all diseases. -our head
tpeclallst In these diseases entered special
courses of studyv in preparation for his
present work. For 21 years he has been
proving his ability and building his suc
cess. He first mastered the simpler
diseases: then tho serious complex and
stubborn ones, that others neither cure
nor comprehend. He has confined his ef
forts to diseases of men exclusively, and
there Is no ailment belonglngto the class
that he cannot fully conquer?
Thorough Treatment of
Every contracted disease Is at
tended by grave dangers that noth
ing less than a thorough and abso
lute euro can remove. To take even
the slightest chance In such cases
Is to invite life-long misery. Men
do nut realize this as they should.
A partial cure is followed by a
chronic stage, with all Its horrors
the sr.nic as though the disease had
not been treated at all. We posi
tively wIIJ not dismiss a patient
until every possibility of relapse is
removed. By our system ot treat
ment every patjent Is soundly
cured and made as free from
disease taint as he was before tho
ailment was contracted.
We positively 'cure varicocele by
painless treatment. We have cured
thousands of cases of this disease,
and not In a single instance has our
treatment been followed by unde
sirable results. The methods we
employ ure In their essential fea
tures distinctively our own and are
a result of years of careful study
and observation. Do "not delay.
Varicocele has robbed many a man
of his strength and vitality, and If
neglected results .In a withering and
wasting away of the organs In
volved. Your .comfort, happiness
demand a cure.Vand- the service we
offer you is not to be obtained else
Our treatment for this disease la
entirely Independent of surgery. A
complete cure Is accomplished with
out cutting or dilating. All growths
and obstructions lr. the passage are
dissolved, the membranes cleansed,
and all Irritation or congestion removed.
Nn other ailment yields mora
readily und6r our treatment than
functional "weakness." No other
disonler peculiar to men so com
pletely baffles ordinary medical
skill. When a treatment cures
there is a reason why It cures, and
when a remedy fails there Is also
a reason wiby. Our treatment cures
because all effort Is directed toward
the restoration of normal conditions
throughout the organic system, re
moving all inflammation or over
sensttlveness ot tho prostate gland,
which is the sole cause of the
functional derangement. Other
forms of treatment fall because,
they are based upon misunder
standing as to the nature of the
trouble, nnd are calculated to ex
cite activity by stimulating tho
nerv! centers. Wc treat more cases
of "weakness" than any one other
ailment, and wo obtain perfect re
sults In all Instances.
Specific Blood Poison
Others dose tho system with min
eral .poisons scarcely less danger
ous than the disease Itself. Tho
best they hope to do by this treat
ment Is to keep the disease from
manifesting its presence upon the
surface of the body. Under our
treatment the entire system Is
cleansed. The last taint of virus
is destroyed, every symptom vau
lting to appear no more. We em
ploy harmless blood-cleansing rem
edies heretofore unknown In th
treatment of this disease. They
cure by neutralizing and absolutely
destroying the poison In the system.
Such cures cannot be otherwise
than complete and permanent.
