Declaring himself a candidate for. the

appeared in the district, the other being
P. A. Cochran, of Woodburn. who has
not yet proclaimed his platform. The Re

form. Free Trade With Philippines.
Mr. Galloway goes further than do the
Republican candidates. In making known
ihe principles? on which he will run, in
that ho says ho will work for free trade
with the Philippines, for tariff revision,
to the ultimate end that tariff shall be
imposed for revenue only, and against
ship subsidy. In other respects his plat

candidate.. For example, he favors Chl-

What Mr. Galloway Says.
When asked for his platform yester
day. Mr. Galloway said:
In Dr.oner time my position on ques'
tions to be considered by the voters
in selecting- one tor this office will be
stated in candid and positive terms.
There Is no issue that I shall dodge or

opposition seems largely unnecessary.

The development of the splendid .re
sources of Oregon and the prosperity
of its people are to be -measured by
the degree or success attained to lessen
the cost in energy, money and time re
quired to transport the products of our
farms, forests, names ana factories to
the markets of the" world. That we

Completion of Pasnma Canal.
The completion Of the Panama Canal
at the earliest dute possible Is a con
summation desired by all of us; rut
least by all who are not under the In
fluence of special Interests antagonistic
to that great enterprise.
Improved conditions and regulations
to vafeguard the Interests of -wage-earners
are favored by all except those
who may be beneficiaries of the ab
sence of such conditions and regula
tions. Naturally. I favor the continued
exclusion from this country of Chinese
laborers. Similar la-ws should exclude
ail classes of foreigners who may be
incapable of assimilation to our Na
tional 11 fo and are not competent for
intelligent American citizenship.
The advantages to be derived from
the extension and development of the
rural-mall service are manifest. More
routes, better pay for carriers and the
establishment of the parcels past
(which I sincerely favor) will add
greatly to the convenience and comfort
of farm life.
The granting of liberal pensions to
the veterans of our wars Is. to my
mind, not a "question" or a "problem."
it Is an act of Justice, a course of Na
tional policy thoroughly approved.

some candidates are making to find

If elected to Congress. "l shall work

and its Island possessions. Conversely

-If elected, I shall at every opportu
nity vote against a ship subsidy bill or
other measure of similar character. I
believe fiat the result of ueh legis
lation would be the upbuilding of
more powerful monopolistic combina
tions at the expense of the National
Treasury and of the people. I believe
that the law restricting to American
bottoms all shipping between the
United States and the Island posses
sions should be modified or repealed.
This is a measure that has already oc
casioned serious Injury to the people
of Oregon. Such pcmfclouR laws cre
ated for the benefit of special Interests,
are similar in effect to bad roads ob
structed rivers and shallow harbors.
They Increase the cost required to send
our products to market, and thus re
tard development and prosperity.
I am neither a protectionist nor a
free trader. I believe that a tariff Is
a tax on the consumer, a necessity but
not a blessing. According to my way
of .-thinking tariff laws should exist

National Government and XOr no other

Trusts and monopolistic combina
tions have attained to that power
which enables them to fix practically
the wages they pay to labor and the
prices at which they buy of the pro
ducer and sell to the consumer. Tho
tendency of such a system Is to pay
the wage-earner about enough to keep
him alive, to give the producer Just
enough that he "will remain in busi
ness and to charge the consumer all
that he; can possibly stand. True pros
perity, the prosperity of the greatest
number of people. Is to be promoted by
having the fewest possible restrictions
on. the. privilege of buying and sell
ing, of trading in free and open mar
kets, whether those markets "be domes
tic or foreign. The logic of the "stand
patter's" position la probably the cre
ation of a special interest, a remark
able imagination and an unusual con
science. If elected to Congress, I shall vote
at every opportunity to reduce tariff
rates and schedules that grant protec
tion to special interests, rates and
schedules that by prohibiting imports
decrease National revenue.

ARBITRATION PLANS FAIL
Disagreement Between Contractors
and District Goes Into Court.
There Is a serious conflict between
the directors of the Mount Scott
school dlHtrlct and J. R. Clark
and F. A Simpson, the contrac
tors who built the rfx-ropm addldon
to the schoolhouse. They claim that they
furnlfbed material and did work to tho
amount of 510. and of this amount $0W
has been paid, leaving a balance of $1500
unpaid. Suit has been started to recover
this sum. The directors have withheld
$500 on the contract price, so that tho
contractors claim nearly $1100 for extra
material and work on the building. .An
attempt was made to settle the dilute
by arbitration. Two men were appointed,
one by the district and one by the con
tractors, who were to get together and
appoint a third, buf. they could not agree
on the third man and arbitration failed.
Hence the matter will have to be fought
out In tho court. The directors allege
poor workmanship generally and deny
they owe more than the contract price.
They pay the roof leaks and that there
are defects. W. S. White, an expert, yes
terday examined the building, and made
a note of the defects in construction. He
said he found many. The plans for the
schoolhouse were drawn by a local resi
dent, and an architect was not engaged.
It is claimed that the specifications arc
defective, but all these matters will bo
fought out la the court. The school lias
occupied the building for some time.

NO COURTING RIGHT
Wife, Can Shut Husband Out
MAY DEED HER REALTY
Decision of Judge Clclnml in Case of
31. T. Runyon Against Step
children Istnbllshcs a
Tho separate or Individual property of a
wife can be- transferred by her by deed
without the signature of her husband, and
deprlvo him of his curtesy in the same
after her death. Judge Cleland rendered
this decision yesterday, in the suit of
Mahlon T. Runyon against Jennie Win
stock, William McFarland, Samuel Mc
Farland and George McFarland, children
of plaintiffs wife. Sarah J. Runyon, by a
former husband. Mrs. Runyon died March
1 last, and prior to her death deeded her
real property which sho owned before she
married Runyon to her children hero
named. Runyon, through George S. Shep
herd, attorney, sued for the curtesy In
the property, which means the possession
of rents or profits during his life. The de
cision of Judge Cleland establishes a new
principle of law. that a wife may convoy
her separate real property, so as to cut
her husband out completely , after her
death, but If she does not deed It away
before death, he retains his curtesy In
terest In It. Attorneys as a rule have
previously contended that a wife could
not sign away her property unless the
husband also affixed his name to the
deed. Judge- Cleland held to tho con
In 1S5I an act was passed by the Terri
torial Legislature providing that when a
wife dies. leaving property, her husband
shall hold It during his life as a tenant
by curtesy. In 3S59 tho Constitutional
Convention of the State of Oregon adopted
the following provision:
"The property and pecuniary rights of
every married woman at the time of mar
riage or afterward acquired by gift, de
vice or inheritance, shall not be subject
to the debts or contracts of the hus
band." And that the Legislature of the state In
carrying into effect this constitutional
provision had enacted in 1S7S and amend
ed in 1SS3 the provision which now appears
as section 244 of the Oregon Code, which
provides that the property and pecuniary
rights of evcrj" married woman at the
time of her marriage, or afterward ac
quired, shall not be subject to tho debts
or contracts of her husband, and she may
