MR. AVERAGE VOTER TELLS WHY HE IS SUPPORTING HUGHES
Men and Women in Many Walks of Life Give Reasons Why T hey Will Cast Ballot for Republican Nominee.
'HT are you going to vote for
Hughes for President?" A
reporter going- here and there
about town, dropping Into stores, of
fices, shops and factories, asked this
question several dozen times the past
Herewith are printed the answers re
ceived, with the names of persons he
Interviewed. There was no effort to
select in advance a list of those to see;
purpose was to talk with the average
voter and find out the elements in Mr.
Hughes' candidacy that appeal to him.
Here are the interviews:
A Itallroail Man.
E. C. Robbins, passenger department.
Northern Pacific I seem to findi many
big- reasons why I am going to vote
for Hughes for President. One of those
reasons is that the Democrats have
removed the tariff on shingles and
other lumber materials. We cannot
hope to compete on a free trade basis
with other countries that hire cheap
Tabor. The time has passed, when this
nation must depend on other nations
for its foodstuffs, etc. But we cannot
protect our industries and become self
supporting through free trade. An
other reason for my support of Hughes
is found in the fact I heartily dislike
the foreign policy of the present ad
ministration. A Street Car Conductor.
J. M. Berry, 400 North Twenty-fifth
street I am going to vote for Hughes
because I think he will protect the
lives and interests of American citi
zens Ibetter than any other man I know
of. Then I believe Republican prin
ciples make for better business.

nue I believe this country will thrive
better under the operation of Repub

why I shall vote for Hughes. Then as
a man I prefer Hughes to Wilson.
A Business Woman.
Miss Jessie C. Hines, Hotel Benson
I shall support Mr. Hughesi because I
think he is a statesman superior to
Mr. Wilson. I also believe that the
country would be better off under a
Harvey L. Moreland, 554 East Sal
mon street I shall vote for Hughes
because I believe in the principles of
the Republican party. I believe in a
protective tariff. Under the free trade
programme the Democrats' have ruined
temporarily the industries of the
A Public Official.
F. M. Brown, May apartments I am
going to support Hughes because the
principles he has championed are the
soundest for the American people. Also,
I believe Hughes to be the highest type
of statesman, whose executive ability
is unquestioned!. I think a nation
should protect Its citizens abroad as
well as at home. During Wilson's ad
ministration we have had little pro
tection outside the United States.
B. E. Lewis, the armory Why am- I
going to vote for Hughes?- Because
I believe he will- uphold the honor of
the American flag, which the Demo
cratic administration has not done.
That should be reason enough for any
J. C. iuckey, 560 Elm street We
have had too much Wilson. Hughes
is the better man. We have always
hadt better business conditions under
Republican administrations. Hughes
is a man of courage.
Miss Mae Norton, Court House Wil
son has been dilatory in a. number of
things. Procrastination and vacilla
tion are two of his characteristics.
There are many things in his adminis
tration that merit Just criticism. I am
a Republican, and) I believe the coun
try always thrives better when Repub
lican principles prevail.
A Chimney Sweep.
G. B. Monroe. 227 V? Washington
street I don't like the so-called eight
hour law. It is class legislation. It
benefits but a. few. The Democrats
never did a damn thing for the Amer
ican people. Free trade is not what
the American people want. They want
and need protection.
Robert Craddock, Police Headquar
ters I am going to vote for Hughes
because he embodies all the principles
of the Republican party. I am willing
to see him elected because of his rec
ord while governor of New York. The
country has prospered under Repub
lican policies, and what prosperity
there is in the United States today is
but temporary because of the immense
amount of money invested! in the man
ufacture of war munitions. Then I
hate to see tho affairs of this country
so mismanaged that the greatest
amount of good will not come to the
entire American people.
A. MacKenzie. 72 North Third street
I am going to vote for Hughes be
cause I believe in putting the affairs
of a big, honest nation in strong hands.
I thoroughly believe in Hughes as a
man and in his principles, and as thor
oughly detest a bread line that Demo
crats and Democrats only create.
Samuel Connell, Fifth and Flanders
streets One cogent reason why I
should vote for Hughes is because I
honestly believe that the prosperity of
Oregon depends upon the lumber in
dustry, and that business cannot thrive
under a Democratic policy of no tariff.
I also regard Mr. Hughes as an able
man with fixed' opinions, in striking
contrast to the incumbent.
A Police Iileutenant and Spanish War
Jj. A. Harms, 1545 "Vincent avenue I
am going to vote for Hughes because
he stands for real, red-blooded Ameri
canism. He is a true American from
head, to foot, and as such I think he
is entitled to the support of all true
Clerk of Municipal Court.
Neal R. Crounse, 673 Johnson street
T am supporting Hughes because I
think his election will sound the knell
f the trouble in Mexico. With Hughes
in the President's chair and a strong
llepubllcan policy put into effect I am
of the opinion that the shipment of
sirnrs into Mexico will bo no longer
permitted, with the result that the
fighting will end because of a lack of
munitions with which to carry it on.
James W. Crawford, Northwestern
National Bank building I am support
ing Hughes because I want to see gen
eral prosperity restored, to this sec
'ion. If Wilson is elected I am con
fident we will have four years mere
of hard times. I am of the opinion that
big business men are waiting for a
change in Administration before they
are willing to invest their money.
Chairman of Public Safety Commiuhi,

I intend to support Hughes at the
polls Tuesday because he Is a safe man

a Presidential candidate who deserves
the support of the people as does
Hughes. His merit is tried. As a
statesman I consider him the foremost
of the Nation.
J. N. Burgess, Pendleton There are
a thousand reasons why I should vote

is a clean man- and a true American
imbued with American principles. Then
above everything else I believe that
the Republican policies are the best for
the American people.

Ann Coleman. 202 West Park Street
I am going to vote for Hughes be
cause I am a Republican and I believe
he represents the best Republican
principles. I shall vote for him because
I am a working woman, I wish to see
wages increase instead of the cost of
living. I desire continuous employment
atigood wages. I love my country and
my flag and I wish to see that flag

and protection of th lives and prop

country and on every sea. I am a
woman who wishes to see women have
an equal chance with men in the Gov
ernment. A Manufacturer.
Dennis C. Fillsbury. Secretary of the
Columbia Engineering Works I shall
vote for Hughes because I believe he
will, if elected, rise above political ex
pediency and select as his advisers
capable men to whom he can trust ex
ecutive responsibility; because I be
lieve he will discard personal preju
dices In shaping the Nation's policies
and Insist upon full recognition of
American rights at whatever cost; and
lastly, because I believe his leadership
will restore to the American people
something of those sturdy ideals for
which their fathers fought and bled
and died, and thus regenerate the Na
tional self-respect which the last four
years have all but destroyed.
Prominent Suffraa-lst and Clubwoman.
Mrs. Alva Lee Stephens, 693 Wasco
Street Among the reasons why I shall
vote for Mr. Hughes are: I am strongly
in favor of National woman suffrage,
of a protective tariff that only the Re
publican administration affords, and
because Mr. Hughes can be depended
on to carry out what promises he
makes to the American people. He
seems to be a man of strong moral
courage, a quality much to be desired
in a President. If elected I believe Mr.
Hughes will restore public confidence.
A Hotel Bellman.
Billle Gibson, Head Bellman at the
Imperial Hotel I believe that under
the Republican form of government
there are more factories in operation.
More factories mean more wholesale
houses. More wholesale houses mean
more traveling men. More traveling
men give better business to the hotel
and to the public at large. That' Is why
I favor Mr. Hughes.
A Taxi Service Operator.
R. C. Long. East 3249 There seems
to be greater confidence in Republican

H. E. James. 88 Tenth Street We
have had enough of the Democratic
party. We wish to have business con

we are to have good times that arc

should give the Republican party the
heartiest support. People have not the

Mrs. Lee Davenport, 88 East Nine
teenth Street I have three good rea
sons for supporting Mr. Hughes. First,
I believe he Is big enough for the Job.
I was a resident of New York when
Mr. Hughes was Governor and I had an
opportunity to go through with meas
ures that he thought to be right in the
face of the greatest opposition from all
sides. Then I believe we will get Na
tional woman suffrage quicker under
a Republican administration. Then
with National suffrage assured, we will
be able to get National prohibition

John L. BiaUer, Hammersley Court
I disapprove of Wilson's foreign policy.

going to vote for Hughes. Foreign

An Advertising: Man.
R. F. Tallmadge. 341 Montgomery I
shall vote for Hughes because he
stands for the best type of American-
ism. He scorns vacillation and a pol
icy of "watchful waiting." I also feel
that business conditions, especially in
the Northwest, will be benefited great
ly by a Republican Administration.
C. Fetters, 991 East Thirty-first
street I am going to vote for Hughes
because I am a Republican. The Demo
crats never did anything for this coun
try except to throw honest workingmen
out of employment. Then, I don't be
lieve in class legislation. That's what
the Adamson bill appears to be.

E. A. Fearing, 22 East Fifty-third
street North It is rather difficult to
tell in a few words why I shall vote
for Hughes. There are so many rea
sons they cannot be crowded into a

is that there never was a time in the
history of the United States when we
needed a man at the head of this Gov

J. P. Jaeger. 131 Sixth Street T shall
vote for Hughes not only because of
his own record, but also because of the
record of the party which he repre

has never been representative of the

Voters do not cast their ballots directly for the candidates for
President at a Presidential election. As provided by the Constitution
of the United States, they vote for Presidential electors, who in turn
cast the vote of the state for President.
Each political party on the ballot has a ticket of Presidential elec
tors. In Oregon, each political party has five candidates for Presiden
tial elector as many as the state has Senators and Representatives
in Congress. To vote for the candidate of his party, the voter should
put the mark "X" opposite the names of each of the flvo electors of
that party and candidate.
For example, to vote for Charles Evans Hughes for President,
the voter should vote for the five Republican Presidential electors.
Opposite tho names of these five electors are the words on tho ballot:
"For President, Charles Evans Huirhes. Kor Vice-President. Charles
Warren Fairbanks," so that it is easy to find tho five electors for
whom to vote.
The five Republican electors are R. R. Butler, of Wasco County:

County; W. C. North, of Multnomah County, and J. F. Wilson, ot Mult
