statements to the contrary, said to be

In Address at Medford ex-Senator
Opposes Bourne's Re-election. .
MEDFORD, Or., Oct. 26. (Special.)
Charles W. Fulton, ex-United States
Senator from Oregon, delivered a strong
address this afternoon in Haymarket
Square in favor of the election of Presi
dent Taft and opposing the return of
Jonathan Bourne to the United States
Senate. In spite of the Inclement
weather a good crowd listened to the
speaker's remarks and be was often in
terrupted by applause.
Mr. Fulton declared President Taft.
because he did not make the noise that
the American people have become ac
customed to associating with the Presi
dential office, was unjustly regarded as
an executive who had not accomplished
much in the way of progressive reform.
As a matter of fact, said the speaker.
President Taft has a record of. construc
tive and progressive statesmanship
which not only entitles him to the sup
port of the Republican party, but en
titles bim to a place among our great
est American Presidents. In confirma
tion of this ex-Senator Fulton reviewed
the achievements of the past four
years, touching upon the arbitration
treaties, the reduction in the tariff, the
taking of the tariff from politics, free
tolls for American ships through the
Panama canal, free competition be
tween railroads and water routes, and
his calm deliberation and skillful
diplomacy In both domestic and foreign
Senator Bourne, declared the speaker,
had not only violated the spirit and let
ter of the direct primary law, which he
professed to champion, but ' was by
character and political record unfitted
to represent this stare at Washington.
He declared the present Republican
Senator a corruptlonist and a traitor to
the Republican party and the people of
the- state.
Candidate for County Commissioner
Replies to Rivals.
"Too much politics in county affairs
at the expense of the people" was a
point discussed by Lute Pease, candi
date for County Commissioner, in a talk
at Seventh and Washington streets
last night. Mr. Pease urged the ne
cessity of more progressive and up-to-date
county business methods, re
ferring to such examples as the pur
chase of county supplies at retail
prices, arbitrary letting of contracts,
the- unexplained and covert sale of
county property at far less than Its
value and the employment and dis
charge of men for political reasons
without regard to competence. He
said that county records should be ex
ported once a year, the expert to be a
man qualified to act as an "efficiency
engineer," charged with the duty of
giving suggestions, criticism and ad
vice for the Improvement of methods
in all departments of county business.
"Why cannot Multnomah County
have the benefit of methods such as
all modern business concerns are
adopting?" he asked. Mr. Pease also

Republican In Address Says Bull

bition, and Born in Malice.
Taft's Firmness Shown.
CIRCLEVILLE. O.. Oct. 28. "Con
ceived in ambition, born in malice and
nourished on misrepresentation or tne
President and the Republican party.
So said Attorney - General Wicker
sham of the Roosevelt Progressive
nartv in his third Ohio speech advo
cating the ' re-election of president
Taft here today.
The speaker devoted most or nia
sneech to a criticism of Dan R. Hanna,
of Cleveland, one of Colonel Roose
velt's staunch supporters. ..
Supporters Are Assailed.
"Some estimate."- he said, "might
properly be made of the nature of the
Roosevelt movement by considering the
character of the four men who sup
ported the Colonel with fountain pens
and open checkbooks Perkins, Hanna,
Munsev and Fllnn."
Attorney - General Wickersham de
clared Mr. Hanna's interest in the
Roosevelt third party was born coinci
dental with Mr. Hanna's Indictment by
a Federal grand Jury in April of 1911,
for rebating.
"The prosecution arose out of a re
port made by the Interstate Commerce
Commission to the Attorney-uenerai,
showing the relation between Mr.
Hanna's dock companies at Ashtabula
and the railroad companies over which
ore was shipped," said the speaker.
"The matter was sent by the Attorney-
General to the District Attorney at
Cleveland, who laid it before the grand
Jury, which found indictments against
the companies and Messrs. Hanna, Mc-
Cabe and Ireland.
Hanna Ansrry, Saya Speaker.
"Hanna was highly indignant and
sent a thinly veiled threat to President
Taft that unless he dismissed the In
dictments Mr. Hanna's influence and
that of his newspapers would be
thrown against nlm. The President de
clined to be influenced by these threats.
"Mr. Hanna and the other individuals
were finally let go, providing their
companies and the railroad companies
plead guilty and pay lines aggregating
UDward of I1Z3.000. insteaa oi snow
ing an appreciation of the leniency of
the Government. Mr. Hanna nas irom
the moment of his indictment fought
against the renominatlon and re-election
of the President and expended in
support of Roosevelt more money than
the aggregate of the fines paid the
Government. That is an example of the
type of men and motives of Colonel
Roosevelt s principal supporters.
