Fusion Ticket Announced by
State Chairman Cleaver.
OSWALD WEST LEADS LIST h
Walter 31. Pierce Indorsed for Gov
ernor and A. W. Lafferty -for
Congress In Third District. .
Eleven recommendations are made
to the woters by the new National
party, which is a fusion of Prohibition
ists. Socialists, radical Democrats and
whatnot. George Cleaver, -who ia state
chairman of the party for Oregon, ad
mits that the Indorsements have been
given for the most part without so
licitation. Leading- the list is Oswald West,
Democratic candidate for United States
Senator. Walter M. Pierce, Democratic
candidate for Governor, is another of
the indorsements. Judge John 8. Coke
is recommended for Justice of the
Oregon Supreme Court, and A. W.
Lafferty is the selection of the Na
tional party for Congress in the Third
District. No Congressional recom
mendations were made for the First
and Second Congressional Districts.
Seven Picked for Legislature.
Only seven candidates for the Legis
lature have been picked for the sup
port of the National party. Of the
seven, two are regular Republican
nominees and the rest are National- 1
Prohibitionists. No Democrat, as such. :
has been indorsed for the Legislative j ' t.J.
ticket. The National Party in making
its selections avoided candidates for
the State Senate.
As indorsed, the Legislative ticket
consists as follows:
Eugene E. Smith. Republican: Oscar
W. Horne. Republican. These two are
backed by organized labor and were
labor candidates in the Republican
primaries. W. F. Amos. Prohibitionist;
Joseph K. Hart.Natlonal-Prohibition
tst: J. W. Newell. National-Prohibition
st; Ada Wallace L'nruh. National
Pnohibitionist; Emma Wold, National
Prohibitionist. Miss Wold is a sister
of the militant suffragette who has
been creating disturbances at Wash
ington. D. C
Labor Barks Oscar Hone.
' Gossip from la'.or cir .a Is to the
affect that labor will not take an ac
tive part in the campaign, other than
to get behind Oscar Horne, candidate
for City Commissioner. Mr. Horne Is
also a candidate for Representative, but
opinions rendered say that he can do
this without a clash. As there Is very
little likelihood of a contest In the
Legislative campaign, the Horne forces
are directing their energies chiefly to
his candidacy for City Commissioner.
It is because of this, according to labor
leaders, that organized labor has no In
tention of indorsing a number of can
didates, prefering to centralize on Mr.
Horne. in his absence from Portland
in New York, Mr. Horne had charge
of constructing part of the original
subway and of other large building
enterprises. He helped build the first
incinerator In Portland and has helped
build several of the sewer systems of
this city, as well as serve as superin
tendent of construction on a number of
Portland's large buildings.

thicknesses of gauze.

The moving of a big gas tank this
week by water from First and Everett
streets to the northwest Steel Com
pany's plant for use in ship construc
tion was the first event of the kind at
tempted on the Pacific Coast.
The tank was built for the Portland
Gas & Coke Company in 1893 by the
Stacy Manufacturing Company at a cost
of $25,000. It weighs 2S0 tons and has a
capacity for 15,000 cubic feet of gas.
Clay S. Morse had the contract for
moving it, with D. J. Disler, who built
the Vista House, construction engineer
in charge. Trolley wires and posts along
First street were the first obstacles en
countered, and several poles had to be
removed. This done, the ponderous
tank was put on a temporary track of
heavy timbers. Hardwood rollers, with
block and tackle and a large gasoline
engine were employed to move the tank
to the foot of Flanders street, where it
was loaded on two barges lashed to
passing boats cut off their power and
drifted past to minimize the ; wash.
Wnen ready the steamer Henderson
took the barges in tow and backed un-
stream to the new location. Loading
and unloading again at the steel yards,
where it had to be run over 1000 feet
of sand, was the difficult part, as the
load was very heavy and awkward to
Disler has been working with his two
crews 18 hours a day, and will continue
for about two more weeks before the
tank is placed in its final position.
The tank will insure an even and
steady supply of gas to the Northwest
and Columbia yards. It was moved at
the expense of the Portland Gas & Coke
Company, which supplies all shipyards
here with gas.

Telephone inquiries from Minneapolis physi
cians and the laity, and letters from many parts of
America, are coming into our office regarding the
use of Benetol in the treatment and prevention of
Spanish Influenza. Therefore I am employing the
public press to answer two vital questions.
1st. Is Benetol effective against the germs of Spanish
Influenza? YES, Benetol has already proved itself a pow
erful bulwark in preventing and treating this disease as
evidenced by medical reports already received. A home
protected by intelligent use of Benetol may banish fear. .
2d. How should Benetol be used? Prepare a solution of
one teaspoonful of Benetol and one teaspoonful of saleratus
in a pint of warm water (two glasses). (The saleratus is
not absolutely necessary but makes the solution better borne
by the nasal muscous membranes.) Let every member of the
family use this freely as a gargle for the throat and spray
for the nose every night and every time anyone comes home
from town or from play. For the nose this solution is best
used in an atomizer. If nosecup is employed or snuffing
from the hand, it may prove a little strong, in which case use
half the quantity of Benetol. This solution keeps well for
To thoroughly and effectively sterilize the teeth and
remove particles of food on which the bacteria might de
velop, use part of this solution as a mouth wash and with
it Benetol Tooth Cream. This Tooth Cream is itself a pow
erful yet harmless antiseptic, disinfectant and prophylactic.
(Physicians and dentists please note.) Benetol Tooth Cream
cleanses and disinfects the teeth, destroying all germs which
might lurk therein or thereon. This cream is alkaline, and I
guarantee that it contains no harsh grit nor any other sub
stance Injurious to the teeth.
One of our Minneapolis physicians has personally gone
to several barber shops and hotels instructing them how to
Of course, in any developed case you will call In your
regular physician to combat the fever, regulate the bowels,

Already letters and reports are coming in from physi
cians on the power of Benetol against the Spanish Influ
enza. For example, from Massachusetts, where the
epidemic rages fiercely, a physician writes as follows :
"I have had scores of cases of Influenza and pneumonia
and not lost a case yet. I use Benetol in every case as a -preventive
for the family and as a remedy for those af
flicted. I use it myself both before and after visiting
each case." (Name of physician to any other physician
This month a great military school with thirty odd
developed cases wired for two gross Benetol. Every cadet
was instructed to use Benetol every day, and thereafter
not a single new case developed. Wfthin three days from
receipt of the wire by us a notice came that the epidemic
was checked and at the present writing four days later
only one boy is as yet seriously ill. His was an early
case before the Benetol was used. (Name of school on
request by schools or physicians.)
Protect your home and children with Benetol and ban
ish fear. Gargle the throat and spray the nose every
night and morning and whenever anyone comes into the
home from town or play. Use the powerful yet harmless
antiseptic and prophylactic Benetol Tooth Cream to root
out germs from the teeth. This cream is alkaline and
contains no grit, but is of great germ-destroying power.
Purchase your supply from any druggist.

' HOW MUCH IS TOUR VOTE WORTH TO YOURSELF, TO TOUR FAMILY,
TO YOUR COUNTRY, AND TO THE VICTIMS OF EXPLOITATION?
HOW MUCH IS TOUR VOTE WORTH TO THE EXPLOITING INTERESTS
OF THE UNITED STATES?
To some, the ballot is a mere scrap of paper; to others. It is a thing unclean,
to touch which is to besmirch oneself: to still others, it is a mere burden; to
the light-minded, it is a toy or a plaything like a rattle, a card, or a football;
to the pessimist. It is a delusion and a snare a pawn on the chessboard of
selfish politicians; to the direct-actionist, it is an instrument of oppression and
exploitation, and to many, it is a means of ancestor worship.
Strange to say, a few people value the ballot as their political birthright
the most precious of their earthly possessions. The American ballot is the
high-water mark of human evolution. In it our Revolutionary forefathers
bequeathed to us an instrument forged in the furnace of the human sacrifice
and suffering of the ages, tempered in the blood of soldiers and the martyrs
of the ages, and shaped by the accumulated experience and wisdom of the ages.
The American flag is the symbol of our freedom; the American ballot is real
ization of our freedom. It is a disgraceful act to drag the American flag In tha
dust. How much worse to besmirch the American ballot in the mire of parti
sanship and selfishness!
The American ballot, rightly used. Is a weapon that will overthrow any
wrong, however deeply entrenched, and defend our rights against any attack,
however powerful at least until the sovereignty of our Government is attacked,
when we must resort to force of arms. But instead of charging our artillery with
high explosives, we have too often used bird shot or blank cartridges, and too
often we have turned It against our friends instead of against our exploiters.
THE MEASURE OF THE MANHOOD OR THE WOMANHOOD OF AMERICAN
CITIZENS Id THE SERIOUSNESS WITH WHICH THEY ACCEPT THE RE
SPONSIBILITY OF THE BALLOT, THE INTELLIGENCE WITH WHICH THEY
MARK THEIR BALLOTS. AND THE PURPOSE WITH WHICH THEY SELECT
THEIR CANDIDATES. THE HIGHEST TYPE IS THE CITIZEN WHO DEFIES
ORGANIZED GREED IN THE INTERESTS OF THE VICTIMS OF EXPLOITA
TION. In accord with the foregoing principles, the National Party of Oregon
