The first reply is from William A.
Carter, candidate for the Republican
nomination for Governor.
Mr. Carter's letter follows:
"To the Editor
"I acknowledge receipt of your let
ter of the 16th inst- containing list of
questions on which you ask me to ex
press my attitude, and in reply I sub
mit answers as follows:
"I What reforms in legislation do
you advocate that will tend to bring
about reduced taxation and economy in
"Reply By consolidating a number
of present commissions and boards and
the abolition of others.
"2 What state commissions are you
in favor of abolishing?
"Reply I favor abolishing the fol
lowing commissions, officers and
boards: The State Architect. State
Hoard of Immigration Commissioners,
the State Immigration Agent, Board of
Commissioners for Licensing Sailors'
Boarding Houses. Commission to Inves
tigate Co-Operative Agricultural So
cieties and Rural Credits in Europe,
State Board of Examination and Regis
tration of Graduate Nurses and the
State Tax Commission.
"3 What state commissions are you
in favor of consolidating?
"Reply I favor consolidating the
following commissions and boards: The
Labor Commission, Industrial Welfare
Commission, Board of Inspection of
Child Labor shall be consolidated with
and merged into the State Industrial
Accident Commission: the State Desert
Land Board, the State Water Board
iind the Bureau of Mines and Geology
.shall be consolidated with and merged
into the State Land Board: the Board
of Sheep Commissioners, the Stallion
Registration Board and State Livestock
Sanitary Board shall be consolidated
with and merged into the State Veter
inary Board; the Board of Portage Rail
way Commissioners shall be consoli
dated with and merged into the Rail
road Commission of Oregon.
"4 Are you in favor of retaining or
abolishing the State Tax Commissions?
"Reply Favor abolishing the State
Tax Commission as now constituted,
but favor a Tax Commission composed
of the Governor, Secretary of State and
State Treasurer, to serve without ad
ditional compensation, thus eliminating
the two members of the Board who are
now drawing substantial salaries.

suing bonds for good roads? What are
your ideas as to state aid for good
"Reply I believe the unit of the
county Is large enough for bonding
purposes for the improvement of roads
and am opposed to issuing state bonds
for that purpose. The present law per
mits counties to issue bonds in ap
amount not to exceed 2 per cent of
the assessed valuation of the property
in such counties and it seems to me
that it would be a mistake for the
state to issue bonds for the improve
ment of roads, for the reason that the
distribution of the proceeds of such
bond issue could not be equitably ap
portioned among the counties of the
"7 Are you in favor of the state is
suing bonds or appropriating money
for reclaiming arid lands within the
"Reply I am in favor of the state
issuing bonds for the reclaiming of arid
hinds within the state, provided the
stato is given ample security against
any loss on account of such bond issue.
Stato appropriations have to be paid
by the taxpayers the year following
such appropriation and puts a great
burden upon the people and, therefore,
T am opposed to direct appropriations
of state funds for the purpose named.
"S What are your ideas as to state
aid for reclaiming arid lands?
"Reply My answer to question 7
states my attitude on this question.
"Very truly yours,

alleged to have compromised a larceny
charge which he had made against two
young men whom he alleged stole two
brass rings from his establishment.
When the circumstances had been ex
plained, and it was shown that Mazu
rosky had induced the men to buy ,J5
worth of other jewelry from him if he
would drop the charge against' them,
Judge Stevenson severely reprimanded
Mazurosky and ordered him to return
the $5 and take back the rings. He re
leased the two defendants.
Patrolmen Long and ' Wise arrested
S. Jerntagard and S. M. Dahl Saturday,
when Mazurosky alleged they stole two
rings valued at $1.50 each. The de
fendants appeared in court yesterday,
but Mazurosky did not appear as com
plainant. The two explained that they
bought four other rings from Mazuros
ky for $5 for all, and they showed a
receipt. They also showed a guaran
tee, "jhich caused laughter In the court
room. It read:
"One ring Is sold to Mr. S. M. Dahl.

months Mr. S. M. Dahl agrees to pay
50 cents more for ring." It was signed

Most old people must give to the
bowels some regular help, else they
suffer from constipation. The condi
tion Is perfectly natural. It Is Just
as natural as it Is for old people to
walk slowly. For age Is never so
active as youth. The muscles are less
elastic- And the bowels are muscles.
So all old people need Cascarets. One
might as well refuse to aid weak eyes
with glasses as to neglect this gentle
aid to weak bowels. The bowels must
be kept active. This is Important at
all ages, but never so much as at fifty.
Age is not a time for harsh physics.
Touth may occasionally whip the
bowels Into activity. But a lash can't
be used every day. What the bowels
of the old need is a gentle and natural
tonic. - One that can be constantly used
without harm. The only such tonic Is
Cascarets. and they cost only 10 cents

BY PORTLAND VISITOR
Will Always Praise Plant Juice Be
cause It Did the Work for
Her in Short Time.
This statement is from Mrs. tleorse
Hubbard, of Minnesota, who is visiting
about given up hope of ever getting:
better. I had a severe case of dyspep
sia, suffered greatly from nervousness
and poor circulation, my hands and
feet would get so numb and cold that 1
would often have to put them in hot
water to start the circulation. I had
rheumatic pains all over my body, slept
very little, and what sleep I did get
did not seem to rest me. and I felt
tlfed all the time. I was almost a phy
sical wreck when I commenced taking
Plant Juice. I had not used half a
bottle when I knew I had found the
right thins at last. I kept on taking
It and kept on improving, now 1 feel
as If I could enjoy life again. My
stomach is in fine condition, my nerves
are steady and strong:. I sleep good and
wake up rested and refreshed, my cir
culation is splendid and my hands and
feet are warm and natural. I am glad
to recommend Plant Juice to all suf
ferers. I think it is a great remedy."
Plant Juice is truly a great remedy;
try a bottle and be convinced. It helps
others and it will help you. For sale

WHY ACID STOMACHS
Seleutifle Reports, April: Acid in the
stomach is dangerous and frequently
fatal, because acid from its corrosive
nature has a natural tendency to de
stroy the mucouH lining of the stomach
itself. No one intentionally swallows
hydrochloric acid, but it is often pres
ent in large quantities as the result of
food fermentation in tho stomach, re
sulting from the chemical action, which
so freuuentiv follows the ealinir of the
her"daughter, Mis. Frank Harris, at oflt
Marguerite avenue, this city. She says: f
"1 was in bad health when 1 left my
home in Minnesota, but llioiiRht prob- r
ably a ohanjsre of climate would do me f
Rood. However it did not, and 1 had '
daintiest and most tasty foods or the st
indulgence Hi any mm of aicononc
stimulants. including beer. wine,
liqueurs, etc. TlilM ftrmentHtion causes
pain, uneasiness and discomfort Mcausfl
of the acid which burns like a red-l"t
Iron, and tho 'formation of gas which
distends the stomach, causing shortness
of breath and palpitation of the heart.
The trouble being entirely due to tho
unnatural condition of stomuch con
tents, and not in any way to the fault,
of the stomnch itsflf. physicians have
adopted, with marvelous success Imc
plan of neutralizing the acid and stop
ping the fermentation by means of one
teaspoonfiil of simple bisurated mag
nesia, taken In a little water Immedi
atelv after eating or whenever discom
fort Is f-lt. The immediate relief fol
lowing the use of bisurated magnesia
Is striking proof of the contention of
medical men that failure to digest food
properlv is almost invariably due to tho
acid condition of food contents, and In
no way the fault of the stomach or
vital orffHns. Adv.
Relieved by Anti-Kamnia Tablets
The exact cause of rheumatism Is un
known, though It is generally believed to
beaue to an excess oi uncacia m me uioo.
It may be also said with equal truth that no
remedv has been found which Is a speclno
in all cases. In fact the literature of rheu
matism shows that there are but few drucs
which bave not been given a trial. In the
hands of one observer we find that a certain
drug has been used with the utmost satis
faction; others bave found the same remedy
to be a great disappointment. All physi
cians however acree that every method of
treatment Is aided by the administration ot
some remedy to relieve the pntn and quiet
the nervous system and Dr. W. S. Schuitxe
expresses the opinion of thousands of prac
titioners when be says that Antl-Kamnia
Tablets should be given preference overall
other remedies lor the relief of the pain In
all forms of rheumatism. These tablets can
be purchased in any quantity. They are
also unsurpassed in headaches, neuralgia
ana ail pain. Astior a-a tauins.
