Audience, Half of Which Is
Composed of Women, Cheers
Candidate Vociferously.
Principles of Republicanism Ex
tolled in Moderate language
and Plea for Party Support
Kinds Answering Echo. ,
BEND, Or.. Oct. 22. (Special.)
- Robert A. Booth, candidate for the
Senatorship, made a most excellent im
pression upon Bend and upon the hun
dreds of Central Oregonians he met
during his campaigning of today. Of
that fact every member of the audience
which he faced here tonight is con
vinced. For' the crowded house at the
Commercial Club rooms, whatever their
party preferences, heard an address
which seldom has been equalled in
Crook County for sound common sense
and eloquent appeal.
Mr. Booth traveled over the county
all day, reaching Bend late in the after
noon. As he took the 8:30 train for Port
land, his address was necessarily cur
tailed, but despite the early hour of the
meeting he was welcomed enthusi
astically by a large gathering when H.
H. Dearmond, manager of the Commer
cial Club, introduced him. That women
are taking an active interest in the
present campaign was evidenced by the
fact that nearly half the audience was
composed of women.
Karly Visit Recalled.
When Mr. Dearmond introduced the
candidate as "our next Senator" a burst
of applause showed that Republican
sentiment was not lacking. -
Forty-four years ago, said Mr. Booth,
he camped where now is the town of
Bend; this time he tame here, he said,
at the protest of his managers, who
desired Ills campaigning in more pop
ulous districts.
"I came because I want Central
Oregon to realize that whatever the
proportionate vote I am equally in
terested in all portions of the state,"
said Mr. Booth, "and especially I came
because Crook County gave me at the
primaries a larger vote than it be
stowed upon any other candidate. 1
want you to know that your friendli
ness is reciprocated."
in view of the bitterness that has
crept into the present campaign Mr.
Booth's moderation and his careful
avoidance of any personalities or any
thing even approaching attacks upon
opponents - or those of the other po
litical faith was welcomed. This mod
eration, indeed, backed by his thorough
knowledge of the facts he handled and
the pleasant personality behind it all,
made a favorable impression, as was
evidenced by many remarks at the
meeting's close.
Republican Party Kxtolled.
Mr. Booth outlined the growth of
the Republican party and the prosper
ity which the country had enjoyed
under its regime. He called it "the
party of human rights."
"Take the tariff out of politics, where
it belongs,"., said he, urging also less
of politics and more of business sense
in railroad and kindred legislation.
"Iset the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion be arbiters, but not oppressors. I
stand for the stability of business upon
scientific lines."
The harmful influence of the Pana
ma tolls upon the development of Ore
gon received attention at the speaker's
hands. The Panama tolls policy of the
Wilson Administration he characterized
as "unfair, unstatesmanlike and un
true to party pledges."
. A protective tariff system he in
dorsed heartily, going into detail to
show the harmful results of the pres
ent tariff law, which, he declared, per
mitted a flood of unfair foreign com
petition to wipe away the profits of
American labor and American industry.
"America was built up under a protec
tive system and for a-protective sys
tem 1 stand. I think the American
market should be held, and developed
for American producers. For that I
stand, and for a high wage for the
working man," were among the per
tinent statements which won applause.
Development of Wot Urged.
Mr. Booth indorsed the fullest devel
opment of forest reserves, urging that
timber be sold under reasonable re
strictions and at reasonable prices.
National affairs, he argued, should be
regarded with a patriotic view, but
from a Western viewpoint, for from
the West comes breadth and progres
sive understanding.
His speech closed with a ringing
appeal to party loyalty and a reminder
that might be styled a business man's
statement, to the effect that he asked
no votes unless the giver of them felt
as sincerely as did their recipient that
the road to real National prosperity
should be paved with the Republican
' principles of a protective tariff and a
readjustment of the Panama tolls.
On his trip here Mr. Booth was ac
companied by a large delegation of in
fluential Republicans from Prineville
and there is no doubt that the united
work being done for him throughout
the county will loom up large at the
polls, when the votes are counted.
Mr. Booth's enemies as well as his
friends agree that his whirlwind tour
of the county will do much for him,
not only among those whom he has met
and addressed but throughout Central
Oregon, which, they maintain, is ap
preciative of such personal attention
on the part of candidates.
Prineville, Redmond, Sisters, and
La id law Welcome Candidate.
J-A1DLAW. Or.. Oct. 22. (Special.)
R. A. Booth started the day this
morning with a speech to the student
body of the Crook County High School
at Prineville. where more than 100 stu
dents listened to the Senatorial can
didate, who impressed them with the
Importance of applying ,thelr talents
and proved to them by comparisons
that the future of the country depends
upon Just i such, institutions as the
Prineville school and the individual ef
fort of each and every student of
such schools.
Mr. Booth was accompanied to Red
mond and throughout the day by an
escort of 12 Prineville business men,
headed by Mayor Clifton, in the
Mayor's car. Mr. Booth wins an ova
tion everywhere. At Redmond a large
crowd had gathered from the surround
ing country and the Republican nom
inee was cheered heartily. Mr. Booth's
talk was concluded just before noon
and the party then proceeded imme
diately to Sisters. Mr. Booth's speech
at Redmond occupied 30 minutesv and
was devoted particularly to- conserva
tion of the water and timber resources
of the country. .
Mstera Out la Force.
At Sisters the entire town turned
out for an enthusiastic street Tneetin-r.
The schoul, which is a large one. was
dismissed and the pupils furnished
band music for the meeting. Cheer
after cheer greeted the candidate In
tne bisters meeting. Mr. Booth said,
in part:
"What is needed .is to blend the soil,
the sunshine which is so bright today
and the water that is stored in the
huge reservoirs of snow yonder on the
shining peaks of these mountains.
"Our money from the sale of our
public lands and the timber should be
used to develop the resources of this
country. I am for the Issuance of
bonds against the resources in the for
ests and the mountains for the devel
opment and blending of these ele
No meeting was held at Laid law
but a large crowd greeted the Booth
party as it proceeded on to Bend.
Development Beat Conservation.
. Mr. Booth issued the fo'owing state
ment: "I believe in conservation in all rea
sonable ways. whether in timber.
power or minerals, but the best con
servation is proper development under
reasonable conditions to operator and
consumer. The Journal accuses me of
standing for a water power trust. If
mere is any such thing I do not know
it. I do not own any interest in any
water power company or water power
project. I am not associated with any
one who has, so far as 1 have knowl
edge. "I want to see the water power de
velop as quickly as its use will justify
it. So far as power in National forests
is concerned, it should be done in the
best and most permanent and cheapest
way, that it may be furnished at the
least cost and thus have the widest
Federal Rule Favored.
"I believe in Federal udminiatratinn
of public forests and favor such con
ditions as will open homes readily and
reasonably to provide settlers, the sale
of timber at competitive prices and un
der reasonable regulation, tharthe ma
tured timber be as rapidly converted
Into money as market conditions jus

ly belongs to the state where located.
.Money received from timber sales,
water powers, for minerals or land a

be expended in the state where located
for reclamation of land, road improve

"Money from lands should be made
at once available for such internal im

No wonder we people in Oregon aro

The men we put In office should find
out what is the matter-and right things.
That is what I am trying to do. Read
what I have to report, and sco what
you think about it.
Taxes 3.10 Per Head.
I have recently received a letter from
the Oregon Tax Commission stating
that our total taxes for 1913 were 1S,
250,000, and for this year, according to
the returns of all the assessors, the
Commission says, they will be $23,100.
000. We only have S00.000 population.
o our total taxes anlount to practically
30 per head, or J100 per family. You
may not pay that much taxes at the
Courthouse, but you pay it at the store
to the merchant with a stock of goods
worth from 110,000 to tl00,000, who
does pay the taxes and adds same to.
the price of his goods.
A Rational Remedy.
Half the taxable wealth of this state
Is in the forest reserves and kept off
the tax rolls. I have a bill pending in
Congress to convey the forest reserves
to the states wherein located in trust
for forestry purposes only, conditioned
that the states shall hold the lands in
public ownership forever and shall
market yearly only the ripe timber.
Oregon's forest reserves are estimated
by the Oregon Conservation Commis
sion, of which Joe Teal is chairman,
to be worth $400,000,000. so if the for
ests paid a net profit of only 3 per
cent from the sale of ripe trees per
year, that would turn $12,000,000 into
our state treasury and reduce our taxe3
Street Railway Ownership.
I find that the enormous tribute we
are paying yearly to watered stock in
street railways, steam railroads and
other public monopolies, is another
source of drain upon the people, that
could be easily righted. Moody's Man
ual for 1914 (the official fruide on Wrdl
Street), page 2546, gives the Income ac
count of the Portland Railway, Light
& Power Company for 1913 as follows:
Gross earnings, $6,723,742; operating ex
penses and taxes. $3,298,310; net earn
ings, $3,425,432. So it will be seen that
over half the money taken in was sent
East as profits to be paid to the share
holders and bondholders.
This company is capitalized for over
$200,000 a mile, which is double the
physical value of the system. It is
capitalized for nearly $70,000,000. The
city could take the plant over at any
time at its physical value, and save
this drain. Private property may al
ways be taken for a public use on
making duo compensation. . which
means paying the actual value, not the
fictitious value, of the property.
Proof of Overcapitalisation.
Our sister city of San Francisco has
gone in for city ownership since 1912,
and now owns and operates the Geary
street line and the Union street line.
Our beloved Portland papers are say
ing nothing about it. But I wrote the
other day and asked the Mayor how
about it, and here is a part of the re
ply from his office:
"The Mayor has asked me to reply
to your letter of September 16. which
he was very glad to get. He asked me
to extend to you his best wishes and to
say this office will be glad to furnish
any further information you may de
sire from time to time relative to
street railway ownership in San Fran
cisco. "Before the present administration.
Mayor James Jtolph, Jr.. took office in
January, 1912, some feeble efforts had
been made toward a street railway in
Geary street. The Mayor at once took
up the matter energetically and the
Geary street road was opened through
out a part of its length at the end of
1912. The construction was of the
finest; the cost of construction includ
ing cars, car barns, necessary real es
tate, tracks, etc.. was Just over $100,-
000 a mile, while the local privately
owned company operating most of the
streetcar lines was capitalized for
something over $300,000 a mile."
Immense Profits Already.
.With the foregoinsr letter was the
financial statement of the Geary street
line for the year ending Juno 30, 1914.
showing gross receipts, of $624,450.74;
total operating expenses of $294,036.22;
excess of receipts over expenditures.
$348,414.52, or over 50 per cent, and the
line is only two years old. It is the
finest line In America and gives the
best service. I rode on .It last May
when I was 'fif Sah' Francisco to argue
the land grant case. The fact that this
line cost only $100,000 a mile proves
that the Portland line, capitalized for
over $200,000 a mile, and not nearly so
well built or equipped, is over half
water. The Portland lino collects gross
$6,723,742 per year from our people,
which is over $26 per pt-rson in Port
land. The Portland line collects at
least $12 per year in velvet from each
