For Stn(9 Printer,
It is now generally conceded
that J. R. Whitney, the present
state printer, is far in the lead
in the candidacy for renomina
tion to that office. Mr. Whit
ney's best endorsement is his
record in the office during his
first term. The Gazette hopes
that Morrow countv will bo in
line with the other counties in
giving Mr. Whitney a majorit'.
Owing to the established rule
he, is entitled to another term.
His record in the office is such a
strong endorsement that the
people do not desire a change
at tlie next election. Ho will
get a big vote in Eastern Ore
gon and with his undoubted
strength in Western Oregon, ho
will undoubtedly bo renomitm
ted by the Republicans by a big
majority. Heppner Gazette.
