Dr. James Withy-combe, Republican
primary nominee for Govenor, yester
day reiterated his stand on the sub
ject of laws enacted by the people.
In response to a. letter ' of inquiry
irom tne executive committee 01 me
Oregon Stata Grange, Dr. Withycombe
made it clear that as Chief Executive
-he will be in warm sympathy with
laws passed by the voters and that he
will frown upon use of the emergency
clause except in extreme cases, where
it is in harmony with the meaning of
" Dr. Withycombe's letter of reply to
the executive committee follows:
Kxecutlve Committee Oregon State Grange
Gentlemen: I take pleasure in answering
fully and frankly your inquiry of September
2S, 1914. relating to use of an emergency
clause attached to "8. 'measure enacted by the
Legislature and presented to the Governor
It is my earnest belief, and will be my
policy if I am elected Governor, that the
spirit and letter of the constitution should
be followed faithfully and fully and that
the emergency clause should not be used
"except as to laws necessary for the im
mediate preservation of .the -public peace,
health or safety."
It is my firm belief that the chief execu
tive should be in warm sympathy with law
enacted by the people and that it is the
unalterable duty of the chief executive to
disapprove- of the "emergency clause" when
the actual emergency existing does not meas
ure up . to the meaning of the constitution
in the ' fullest degree. I, assuredly, will
disapprove use of the "emergency clause"
as a means of evading the operations of the
Initiative and referendum provisions.
Furthermore, I will disapprove of any ac
tion aimed or designed against any taw
enacted by the people.
K. H. Woodward, editor and pub
lisher of the Newberg Graphic, who
called at the Republican county head
quarters yesterday, said that Mr.
Withycombe nd Mr. Booth will carry
Yamhill County by a large majority.
Mr. Woodward is an enthusiastic Booth
supporter. . He has caused to be print
ed An the columns of his paper Mr.
Booth's picture, underneath which is
inserted the words: "R. A. Booth. This
is not a paid advertisement. It is a
convenient way of expressing: the
choice of the Graphic for United States
Republican women, who are to act as
judges and clerks at the coming elec
tion, will open headquarters in room
301 of the Selling building tomorrow
and the secretary will be in constant
attendance for the remainder of the
campaign to give information to Re
publican women. " ... .
These women have organized to im
press upon Republican women their
duty as voters and to show why the
Republican ticket should be '"supported
in its entirety, particularly with re
gard to United States Senator and
Representative In Congress.
The members of the association also
hope to interchange ideas calculated
to improve election service, discuss the
methods of handling election work, en
courage women generally to take an
interest in tho details of election pro
cedure and to agree upon a concerted
system of co-operating with the news
papers to give the public early, infor
mation as to results.
At-the meeting of the Oregon Civic
4 .League yesterday A. M. Churchill in
troduced the following resolution,
which will come up for formal consid
eration at the meeting next Saturday:
Resolved. That the Oregon Civic League
places Itself on record as most unquallfledly
orposed to recall of public officials unless
for corruption cr malfeasance or gross in
competency in office. We believe that any
such movement based on lesser charges
should be overwhelmingly rebuked at the
tolls: that mere differences of opinion on
Individual policies, unless these te of so
great moment as absolutely to threaten the,
vital interest of -a community, should- never
vsubiect that community to the expense and
disturbance of u recall election, much "less

other disappointed applicants for public

united in their support of the ticket.
The Republican county organization is
encouraged by the interest manifested
by the women voters. Voluntary offers
from women to assist in the campaign
are received dally.
George J. Cameron. Republican coun

his women friends. -
The other day someone gave him a
campaign card of William "Tlanley.
Progressive nominee for United States
Senator. Mr. Cameron carlessly slipped
it into his coat pocket. Then he
went into Republican headquarters and
picked up a stack of cards announcing
It. A. Booth, Mauley's Republican op
ponent. Going down street he met a woman
whom he knew and gave her the whole
"'Here, pass these out among your
friends." he suggested.
The woman w-as on her way ' to a
card party or sewing circle or some
thing of the kind and when' she got
there she started passing out Booth
cards. But somehow this Hanley ad-1
vertisement had got mixed np with the
others and she passed it out to a Re

HEAVY PRUNE IS EXPECTED
Many Special Appropriations Likely
' to Be Lopped i'ire and . Police
Bureaus Show Heaviest Addi
tionsSome Demands Lower.
When the city budget committee
commences its work of fixing appro
priations for next year it will face a
budget of proposed expenditures ag
gregating. $3,328,207.75. Budgets of
proposed expenditures were sent yes
terday to the members of the City
Commission by the heads of bureaus
and by them passed on to the budget
In the estimates as sent in by the
heads of bureaus provision is made for
a long list of large special appropria
tions. These have been referred to the
budget committee, with the expectation
that most of them, will be trimmed
out so as to cut city expenses for 1816
toa minimum. Should all the items
asked for by the various bureaus be
granted the city would have a tax levy
next year- of approximately- 10 mills
as compared with 7.7 mills for the
All members of the Commission and
members pf the budget committee are
pledged to strict economy for next year
so the indications are that there will
be some extensive pruning. It has been
decided by the Commission that the
tax levy will be cut to at least 7 mills,
which will mean the cutting of ex
penses ' for next year about $300,000
below what they were for this year.
V Fire) Demand. Heavy.
The police department in its budget
asks for a number of special appro
priations. Among them Is $100,000 for
the establishment of three sub-police
stations, an appropriation to pay the
salaries of 60 additional policemen and
$25,000 for the completion of the first
unit of the proposed new detention
home for women.
The fire department asks the big
gest increase of all. Request is made
for an appropriation of $40,000 for a
new building to take the place of the
headquarters station on Fourth street,
near Morrison street. The building is
In a' dilapidated condition at present.
Other special appropriations asked for
by. the fire department are $12,000 for
new station at Front and Gibbs streets;
$12,000 for a new building in.Sellwood;
$12,000 for a new station at Twenty
second and Reed streets; $25,000 for
two new steam engine tractors.
In the health -department provision is
made for a number of increases in
salary in accordance with the city's
ereiciency system and for the improve
ment of the city laboratories.
Some Bureaus Cut Demand. .
Appropriations amounting, to about
the same as last year are asked by
the bureaus under Commissioner Bige
low. In tbe department of public af
fairs under Commissioner Brewster in
creases are proposed for some bureaus
and decreases in others. Provision is
made for an additional deputy in the
office of sealer of weights and measures
and for the purchase of an automobile
in this bureau. The City Hall carpen
ter is cut out in' the proposed budget,
which brings about a- decrease in op.
propriations asked for by the City Hajl
oureau. in tne tegai Dureair(jity At
torney LaRoche proposes to increase
the salaries of his two chief deputies,
Tomlinson and Laturette, from $2400
to $270 a year; three other deputies,
Myers, Davie and Stadter to $175 a
month, and Chief Clerk McElroy from
$100 to $110 a month.
In the park bureau increased appro
priations are asked. This, Commis
sioner Brewster says, is because there
will be no park and boulevard fund to
draw on hereafter and the construe
tion work will have to be paid for from
the tax levy.
Permanent Park Work Proposed.
-An effort will be made to put certain
parts of the parks on a finished basis,
out of the money asked, so that there
will be only the item of maintenance to
be considered in the future.
.Following is a list of the amounts to
be used for permanent improvements,
sonic of which appear under the con
struction and extension account, but a
large part of which, appear in items to
be covered by personal service and

As Stated in Previous
The-' Manufacturers' Representa-
tive3 Are Here Now in Charge
of the Great Sale at Eilers.
W"hen a cut in price of legitimate
merchandise is made you certainly
should know the reason w-hy.
It is a known fact that the larger
factories in all lines have accumu
lated a large surplus on account of
the disturbance in Europe, and prac
tically no export trade can be sc
oured. We have a large stock of
pianos which are being sold under
special agreement. The factory rep
resentatives. Messrs. Ellsworth,
Barnes and Davey, are now here in
charge of the sale. They do not care
for profit; their purpose is to have
these pianos Immediately out of the
way, our agreement bi ig that for
every two pianos they sell we agree
to buy three more. Our store Is now
full of brand-new Instruments, noth
ing shop-worn, nothing second-hand,
all regular high-quality stock, near
ly all to be sold at manufacturer's
cost, some even for less. Elegant
new warranted pianos only $118:
many for $98; finest $550 and $600
pianos only $333 and-$315 for the
TERMS OF PAYMENT can be ar
ranged to suit any customer. Some
only $1.00 per week, others $5.00 per
month, and some at $6.00 or $3.00
per month. Latest and best, metal
tube player pianos and free music
roll service included at correspond
ing reductions. Payments of only
$10 a month, some as low as $2 per
MhsIc certainly makes home what
it should be. There is no home now
in Portland or vicinity that cannot
have a choice piano. These instru
ments now go for less than a cheap
piano would cost at any other time.
The most expensive pianos, most ex
pensive player pianos and baby
grand pianos are now being sold for
even less than the ordinary upright
piano would cost at any other tfene.
This great sale has only-been run
ning a very few weeks, but we be-"
lieve we are safe in saying that
any one week's - total business
amounts to more than the ordinary
month's business and a great deal
more than some dealers sell In two
or three months.
The unequaled prices and the
never-heard-of terms are now within
the reach of every planoless home.

Said Mr. Geo. Westlnghouse In 1910.)
An old saying: "The proof of the pudding is the eating thereof."
It would seem to any practical mind that the EWBANK MOTOR CAR No. 333 having EATEN UP
SOME lOjOOO miles of steel rails, under the most continued hard service, and made good in every particu
lar, should be placed in a class of its own and marked "A GRAND SUCCESS." All the TESTIMONY
furnished bv PRACTICAL. RAILROAD MEN puts it in this class. One prominent railroad man says:
"Under CONTINUED HARD SERVICE it is VERY EFFICIENT, ECONOMICAL from cost of opera
tion, DEPENDABLE and, in my opinion, will prove to be- a most satisfactory means of CAR and
Now take this simple system of electric control, where railroads will only need their rails and roadbed",
with the EWBANK SELF-CONTAINED ELECTRIC SYSTEM of control, in the shape of a powerful
ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVE, with MOTORS under each coach, ,as is used today in the trolley systems
the 'multiple-unit system then compare it to the third-rail system, the overhead trolley system,' or the
underground conduit systems, which necessitate the installation of great power plants to generate the
electric current, with, its endless ramification of -apparatus of all kinds to get out of order and the
enormous upkeep thereof. Stop and think of the great danger in the third-rail svstem and even in the
overhead trollev, for many have been killed by. both. The EWBANK SELF-CONTAINED ELECTRIC
CONTROL SYSTEM is free from all these defects. ' ,
This control-of electricity is not "a going to be," but it has been proved out to railroad men and IT
13 DOING ALL CLAIMED FOR IT.
Since our advertising campaign started we are receiving ' letters and even ' telegrams ' from leading
railroads and others asking for PROMPT advice regarding this LITTLE GIANT EWBANK MOTOR
