Our Dental Work
peaks For Itself
IN THOUSANDS OF HOMES
IN PORTLAND AND OREGON
Some of our patients have been with us for 12 years
and others not so long a time, but once they patronize
this office the work is of such a high class and the
methods so strictly modern that we retain their pat
ronage indefinitely. We always aim to spare your,
nerves and feelings, so that when you leave our office
you feel just as well as when you entered it. Our
bridge work will prove a revelation to people unaccus
tomed to modern dentistry. In every other-branch of the
profession our work will be found equally satisfactory.

NEW FINANCE COMMITTEE
Organization To Be Perfected In
Every County and Two Polls
of the Voters Will
Be Taken. -
Republican warriors of the state met
yesterday, and without extended ob
sequies, buried the tomahawk of factional
differences and Joined in launching a cam-
. .Kb. mauna drBCm for Tfl ft and
Sherman by the customary Republican J
majority. This meeting; was held In the
Republican headquarters In the Chamber
of Commerce building and was attended
by members of the state central commit
tee and country chairmen representing
12 of the 34 counties of the state. About
40 attended the conference, which was
presided over by W. M. Cake, chairman
of the Republican State central com
mittee. After a general discussion of the situa
tion In Oregon Chairman Cake announced
the appointment of a finance committee
of five members, consisting of Ralph
jd Williams. National committeeman,
chairman; ex-State Senator Sig Slchel.
ex-State Senator C. W. Hodson, Major
J. P. Kennedy, chairman Multnomah
County Republican Central Com
mittee and H. W. Coe. This committee
will have charge of the financial end of
the campaign and will receive and dis
burse all subscriptions. Chairman Will
iams said yesterday before leaving for
Eugene to attend the Shrlner festivltiea
that he would call the committee to
gether In Portland early next week and
arrange for supplying the necessary am
munition for actively starting the cam
Strong Committee Named.
A majority of the members of the com
mittee named to have charge of the
campaign are strong friends of Senator
Fulton and unfriendly both to Cake and
Bourne. Williams. Slchel and Hodson
are warm friends of the Senator, while
Cake's slight of Major Kennedy has not
had the effect of further cementing tha
letter's friendship and loyalty to the
state chairman. Friends of Senator Ful
ton realise that the committee named by
Chairman Cake yesterday is even stronger
than the one proposed by telegraph to
Cake while he was East. National Com
mitteeman Williams, Senator Fulton arid
Major Kennedy at that time proposed the
appointment of an executive committee
of five members and consisting of Na
tional Committeeman Williams. George
H Williams, Major Kennedy, Ben Reis
la'nd and F. W. Leadbetter. But Cake de
clined to answer the telegram or to ad
vise party leaders here of his choice and
the Fulton people are anything but dis
pleased with the outcome for they feel
that In at least one respect their patience
has been rewarded.
The resignation of Otis Patterson, of
Grant County, as secretary of the state
committee, was received and accepted and
the committee authorixed Chairman Cake
to name another secretary. This appoint
ment probably will be announced early
next week. . . ,
An organization Is to be perfected In
every county under the direction of the
State Committeeman or the chairman of
the County Central Committee, these two
ofricers to decide which shall take charge.
In each county two polls of the voters
will be taken. One will be compiled from
the registration books by the county
chairman who will classify the voters as
to their political affiliations and Indicate
the nationality and occupation of each
voter. Another poll will be made by the
precinct Committeemen who will be asked
to ascertain the sentiment of each voter
In his precinct. All of this information
will be furnished to the National Com
mlitee. Abundance or Enthusiasm.
The meeting was a harmonious one and
Its proceedings were conducted without
a single discordant note. There, was
plenty of enthusiasm among the members
of the conference and It required only
the mention of Tafta tamt to produce
a demonstration. Chairman Cake and
i otter member of tha state committee
all agreed that there were no factional
differences in the party and that the suc
cess of the Presidential ticket was a con
sideration that inspired all Republicans'
to get together and to work together.
James P. Kertchem, secretary of the
Multnomah County central committee,
added his testimony to the harmonious
feeling he said prevailed among the
members of the party. He charged that
the newspapers were responsible for the
reports that there was so much as a dif
ference of opinion among Oregon Repub
After the formal business of the meet
ing had been transacted, different mem
bers of the committee made Informal
reports of political conditions In their re
spective counties. None expressed any
alarm over the unusual activity of the
Democratic organization in this state
and very generally predicted success for
the Republican ticket In every county
of the state. Among those making such
reports were: B. E. Kennedy, of Baker;
W A. Williams, of Benton: Uvy Stlpp,
of Clackamas: A. C. Marstets. of Doug
las: R. R. Butler, of Gilliam; L. M. Gale.
. i . xx t. TnnM of Marion: B. F.
Jnnes, of Polk; R. L. Turner, of Yam
hill, and W. w. ateiwer. 01 ...r..
Speaking for Multnomah County. Major
J P. Kennedy, coifhty chairman, said
that all differences within the party
having been burled, Taft was certain of
the usual Republican majority In Mult
nomah County, where, he suggested, the
a W a Vt a -t F f O n
only question was s i" ..uci.
or Chafln. the Prohibition nominee,
land In second place.
An equally encouraging report from
the country at large was made by Chair
man Cake, based on his observations on
his recent Eastern trip. He said he
found only satisfaction In every state he
visited over the nomination of Taft, who
was regarded as the party's strongest
candidate and the man entitled to the
nomination. Like his associates on the
state committee. Chairman Cake was sat

CHEERY OLD COUPLE
Find Grape-Nuts a Blessing.
After one is seventy, the question of
nourishment is a very delicate one.
When old age comes on we do not
need so much food as during the more
active years, but the digestive organs
are very sensitive, and care must be
exercised In its selection.
No food has the strength giving
properties and is so easy to. digest by
old and young as Grape-Nuts.

Judge J. H. Scott, president of the

here yesterday at a meeting called by

favored the employment of convict
labor in the undertaking. He also de
clared in favor of the passage of a
bill by the next Legislature by which
counties would be permitted to employ
convict labor on roads. In closing.
