OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE CITY
Official Paper of Coos County.
AVOULD YOU CO BACK?
I HAT WAS an Interesting, time
ly and vigorous address that
Judge McGinn delivered before
the Union Republican Club and
which The Times printed yesterday
Judge McGinn Is one of the big re
publicans of the state who does not
believe in the reactionary assembly
plan. Ho struck straight from the"
shoulder at the scheme that is now
being fostered with so much carei
Judge McGinn's speech rings
strong and true and it Is wholesome
music to hear a man speak fearless
ly as ho did. Now what do you
think Mr. Average Republican, are
you in favor of the assembly plan?
Do you want to go back to the sys
tem of government by party ma
chines and bosses and in behalf of
the special Interests that influence
those bosses, or would you rather see
primaries and elections held In ' a
fair and open manner in conformity
with the spirit and letter of the di
rect primary law?
T IS NOW but a few weeks until
, Christmas and thoughtful ones are
shopping. They are wise for by
shopping early they secure the ad
vantage of the complete stock and
Incidentally do not have to buy
goods of balesmen and saleswomen
who are hurried and weary from thp
Christmas rush. It Is strange that
more people do not shop early. It
Is tho custom of the average man or
woman to wait until a day or two
provlous to Cluistmns and then to
invade the stores with flying visits.
They find the stores jammed with
poople, tho clerks too busy to
breatho and tho stocks well depleted.
Those who mako It a point to Jo
their shopping early avoid all this.
Do your shopping early, secure bet
ter service for jourse'f nnd Inciden
tally aid tho store people.
