We believe in gjodroda; we belief r
in a gravel loader instead of a ehovel

we believe in rock crushers and gravel

we also believe in accessible and safe J
cers of tbi county. The facts are tlieman, through whom Uaisley claims he tuned
the passage of the bill. Representative Wilson, opposed the only measure intra
duced for this object, which bill was drafted and introduced by the Douglas county
republican senator, the late Hon. A. W. Reed, and it was only tbrouult the ier.

THE review's admission:
"Senator Reed introduced a bill reducing and re-ad
justing the salaries of the officials of Douglas county and

Wilson, Wouacott and Conn, introduced xo measure, but
came to the support of Mr. Reed's bill."

Public Speaking Tonight.
The Review came out recently with an
.article headed "The Oregon ian Con
demos Tongue." Ob yep, the Oregon
ian "condemns" Tongue, as will be seen
from the following paragraph taken from
last Frdiay'a daily:
"Jo man who bas any interest in
table buaioeea conditions, gold values
I or crone and wages, confidence for capi
-tal and steady employment for labor can
afford to vote for Dr. Daly. The First
-district should re-elect Representative
Toogae Dy o.UOU majority.
In beginning an editorial on the al
leged decadence of the Republican party
the Uosebarg Review somewhat un
grammatically yet tratbfally states:
"Tim was when the affairs of Govern
eoent ,aa administered by Republicans,
was largely lor the interests of the peo
ple and wa given their bonoet support,"
Xhia it tardy admueion of virtues of the
republican party. How comes it that,
when the party waasdministering affairs
ia tb interests of the people, the Re
view wiM opposing it as bitterly at it
does) to Jay? Was the Review aKint
the people then, or is it simply "forniust
the government, regardlie"? Oregonien.
Hon. R. A. Booth is an able, brilliaat
and progressive man, and would make a
senator in whom Josephine, Douglas and

legislature will bear out. Not a .Hlngle
