OPPOSING CANDIDATE

Roscoe P. Hurst.
Unopposed except by a Republican
c&adldat who has been repudiated by
his own party, Roscoe P. Hurst un
doubtedly will be elected on Novem
ber 3 to represent the Seventeenth
representative district, composed of
Multnomah and Clackamas counties. In
tbe next legislature.
Mr. Hurst Is a lawyer, a native of
Illinois, 32 years old and has a wife
and a daughter. He came to Oregon
In the BDrlnir nf 1907 and bna hwn
practicing law in Portland since, and i
uaa Duui up a Buccessiui practice.
He has a clean record and his
friends declare he Is possessed of
ability that will make him a valuable
member of the legislature.
Mr. Hurst Is counsel for the Ore

Poor Oebtors' Court He.d.d. '
I intend, when I get-into the legis- 1
latere, to make It my business to see
that a poor debtor's court Is estab
lished," he Bald. "In my charitable
work I see the necessity every day
for such a court. In the court I have ;
In mind it will not be necessary for
either litigant to incur any expense." i
Mr. Hurst says he has too often j
seen the injustice the present court
system works against the poor man :
or woman' who Is struggling to pay 1
a doctor's bill or eome other bill out !
of rheaeer earnines Manv rt i
accounts axe sold to professional col
lection agencies, who bring suits to
collect the bills and the court costs
amount to more than the bill. The un
fortunate man or woman has to pay
It alL
In the court Mr. Hurst proposes to
have established, the present expense
of litigation over small debts win h.
greatly reduced. Collection agents :
will not be allowed to enter the court. '
Lawyers likewise will be barred. Jus
tice will be meted out by a Judge 1
whose purpose will be to see that all
honest debts brought before hlrn are
'-. nwiiiicr ui least Duraen to
the man or woman who has incurred
the debt
Plan Declared Success.
Mr. Hurst said courts of this char
acter are in operation in other cities
with great success. If a doctor has
a bill of $10 against a woman who Is
working to support herself and chll
' dren and he feels she is not diligent
v in her efforts to pay him, he would
send the bill to the poor debtor's court.
The judge would call in the woman
nd ask her why she hasn't paid the
'. bill, if she has Jiot paid the bill be
., cause she hasn't the money, it would
be the Judge's duty to require her to
, Pay it on such terms as he thought
she could stand, perhaps 25 cents or
60 cents a week. But there would be
i no court costs added to the amount
; of the bill. If she still faUed to pay
the bill, then the case could be certi
' lied to the regular district court where
I suit could be brought as now.
; It is Mr. Hurst's idea to have the
j poor debtor's court handle all such
1 cases up to perhaps J20 or $30. He
t BayS th AAA (tQMfl tmA Km hn.l.J 1
one or the district JudsesTVo there
i would be no additional expense, and
that it would result In a material re
duction In the force of deputies in
the 'constable's office and probably a
reduction in the number of deputies
. in the district court.
Republican Homluee Repudiated.
Mr. Hurst began the agitation
against the loan sharks that resulted
in tbe organization of the Portland
Remedial Loan association. He has
vigorously fought loan sharks, and the
. outcry against them led to the passage
of a law by the last legislature regu
lating their business. Mr. Hurst says
the law is not as effective as it ought
to be. but that it can be made ef
fective. He favors retrenchment in taxation
and economy in the conduct of public
, affairs.
His only opponent Is C M. Hurlburt,
, the Republican nominee, who has been
repudiated by the Republican county
central committees of Multnomah and
' Clackamas counties because or his un
savory personal record. He has been
involved in many lawsuits, has been
arrested on the charge of obtaining
property by false pretenses, has gone
under assumed names, and has built
up a personal record which his own
Party leaders declare unfits him to
hold any office.

are now being built, said: "This is undoubtedly the
place from which the grain shipr&ents of the great Columbia River
Basin will be made you have the situation here unquestionably."
