Pacific Christian Advocate Styles
'Preposterous" Attack on Candi
date for Senate. Who Is Known
as "a True Man.'
THE idea that a few self-seeking
politicians, determined to stoop to
any methods to carry out their pro
gramme, have discovered, all in a mo
ment, in Robert A. Booth a personal
unfitness, concealed from his most inti
mate associates of a lifetime, is prop
erly designated "preposterous" by the
Pacific Christian Advocate.
How Mr. Booth stands among his fel
low townsmen and fellow church mem
bers and among all who have known
him for any length of time is related
by that journal as follows:
"It does not take long to discover a
counterfeit. The resemblance may be
perfect and thereby the eye may be de
ceived. Even the sound, "the ring," may
at times cause one to have confidence,
but repeated tests bring to the trained
ear the false note of spurious metal.
Sometimes we find men in whom we
had placed our trust who prove false
and utterly unworthy. Repeated trial
is the true test of character. And
character is the most precious asset
any man has. Bad men and weak men,
in their extremity, will try to destroy
even that, Shapespeare says:
"He who Bteals my purse steals trash:
But he who takes from me my good
Takes that which doth not enrich him
self. And makes me poor indeed.'
"When will men realize the tremen
dous truth of these words? We were
astonished a few days ago to read in
the papers that Hon. R. A. Booth had
been accused of 'wearing religion as a
cloak to cover up his evil deeds. It
seems unnecessary for us to refute
such an unwarranted statement. Such
unjustifiable attacks should discredit
all the accusations of his political
enemies. Having been born and reared
in Oregon; the son of an honored re
tired member of this conference: the
head of a Christian home; a life-long,
active member of the church; our lead
ing philanthropist and supporter of
Christian education; repeatedly hon
ored by his brother laymen and hon
ored almost revered by his towns
men and friends; such a man. active
- -
In city, county, state and National af
fairs, successfully deceiving his friends
for a third of a century? Can any
thing be more preposterous?
"It would be ridiculous were It not
so serious. The person who will as
sassinate a man's character without
cause places himself upon a plane be
neath that to which he would precipi
tate Ms victim. To know Robert A.
Booth is to know a true man."
