Newspapers all over the First dis
trict have realized the character of the
campaign being conducted against Mr.
Hawley during his absence from the
state, and first one and then another.!
have expressed their disapproval.
Among the last to do this is F. M.
Brown. editor of the Brownsville
Times, who has the following editorial
in his issue of the ninth instant:
'The activity of the political enemies
of Congressman W. C. Hawley in cir
culating defamatory literature broad
cast over his district has caused his
friends to begin a campaign of educa
tion, giving his record in the halls of
Congress. Mr. Hawley's record is one
to be proud of and his political op
ponents will not be able to accomplish
anything in behalf of their candidate
by attempting to defame him wniie ne
is not in the state to defend himself."
Hundreds of letters have been re
ceived by the committee and without"
exception they, predict an overwhelm
ing victory for Representative Hawley
over his unknown, unreliable opponent.
A number of the letters are from Dem
ocrats of long standing.

"Cadets! Already in your earlier
youth I send you out to my regiments

declaring that the $100,000,000 addi-
lonal taxation now proposed was
made necessary by Democratic
blunders. They went into detail in
their criticisms of Democratic ex
travagance In appropriations, providing
ammunition for the Fall campaigns.
Silence on the Democratic side
greeted the outburst. Democratic
leaders planned to allow the KepuBU
cans to have their say, then pass the
tax bill and adjourn. senator Sim
mons, however, made a brief reply to
attacks on the Democratic tariff.
The demand of Southern members of
Congress for legislation to relieve the
cotton situation loomed up as a pos
sible bar to early adjournment. Senator
Overman, of North Carolina, declined
to allow the Senate to agree that the
tax bill be voted on Thursday, assert
ing that something must be done about
cotton. It is expected the Southerners
will be satisfied if a vote is taken on
an amendment to the bill designed to
aid the cotton states and that this
will be done.
Senator Smoot, opening the Republi

additional levy would have been neces

The Democratic opponent of Mr.
Hawley seemed to think the people
of Oregon were easily hoodwinked
and he began his campaign by circu
lating an unsigned printed statement
that the Representative had only pro
cured favorable action on four of h'is
bills during his service in Congress.
Most any person In the district knew
of many times that number and even
during the present session the num
ber had been doubled.
His next move was to accuse Mr.
Hawley of using a "Jimmy" to get i
things through Congress. His first con- I
tention was that the Representative
had done nothing and when be fell ;
down on that, he next resorted to his
favorite language, that of a burglar
or outlaw and accused the Represen
tative of using a 'jimmy" in getting
things through Congress. Needless to
say, his two contentions are contra
dictory and show that he lacks con
sistency, even when trying to make
out a bad case against a good man.
"Jimmy" Is Able Argumenut.
"The "jimmy" used by Mr. Hawley in
procuring more than $5,000,000 for the
improvement of the public waterways
of the First District was not the tool
of the burglar, but the able argument
and' presentation of a man who is
known to be accurate and reliable.
This fact was attested when Repre
sentative Booher, of the committee on
rivers and harbors, who is a Missourian
of the opposite political faith from, Mr.
Hawley, made the statement that the
Oregon Representative knew more
about the waterways in his district and
made a more able presentation than
any other representative appearing
before the committee.
In Coos County, where the opponent
of Mr. Hawley has resided a short
time, since moving there from Georgia,
