He will treat all alike, with out tear or favor. D on ' t forget to vote for the 'in itiative and referendum amendment. It is what the people need and want. It will be found at the bottom of the official ballot. Put a cross in the right place. _____________ T he Democratic ticket is one of the very best ever nominated, and enlists the hearty support of its partisans, while challenging the admiration and respect of even its opponents. Every thing points to its election. T he third-term idea is repugnant to a large majority of the voters, and they will register their disapproval of it in unmistakable terms next Monday. Four years of office-holding is enough f&r anybody. W hy are the Medford Mail and Ashland Tidings using so much space in behalf of Sheriff Orme? Is it be cause of his efficiency as an official, or for the reason that he gives to them all the patronage of his office? Warum? D emocrats , don’t swap. The stories being spread by Republican strikers that certain candidates on the Democratic ticket are trading off others for votes for themselves are false and uttered with malicious intent. H orace M ann , candidate for joint representative, is far and away ahead of his opponent in the qualifications that go to make a good legislator. He has ability, pugnacity and in tegrity, first-class characteristics in anyone THE candidate who is gaining fast every day, as much so if not more than any other, is Joe Kader. He has ail the requisites of a first-class sheriff, being a man of good executive ability, genial and upright, making friends wherever he goes. W. A. C arter , Republican candi date for representative, to use a sport ing phrase, is left at the post. He will never know that he started in the race. Mr. Carter has already been given a fair trial in the position he seeks and found wanting. T he Republicans must have been ex ceedingly short on oratorical timber when they put Gus Newbury and H. V. Gates on the stump in Jackson county. One is the quintessence of mis representation and impertinent assur ance, while the latter's strong point is vulgarity. _____________ I f the people of Jackson county wish to be ably and conscientiously represented in the legislature, they will elect Neil, Mann, O1 well and Can trail. They have the ability and solicitude for the interests of their constituents to work and vote right on all questions. E. V. C arter , Republican candidate for state senator, is makings desperate attempt to secure his election. That he will be repudiated by his own neighbors is now a certainty. Hun dreds of Republicans, who are dis gusted with his record of duplicity and selfishness, will vote against him. Mr. Carter is not a proper man for the people to put in so important a position.
