Our ticket ia representative in

of men taken from among tbe people.
It is pot atlccet of politician. And
second it represents the different sections
ot tbe county fully. The twelve men on

by the Salem Journal beads tbe list of
tbe entire membership. Tbe position be
took on the different bills will endorse
tbe judgment of the Journal. Tbe low
