OF Djm. SMITH
Withycombe Is Considered a
"Figurehead" by One; An
other Revolts Nominee.
Another Republican newspaper, The
Banks Herald, has come out strongly
in support of Dr. C. J. Smith, as the
ousiness canqiaate ror governor. It
opposes tne candidacy of Dr. James
wiinycomDe, tne Kepublican nominee
because it says the people of Oregaii
do not want a figurehead in the office
oi tne cniei executive.
A few days ago the Ashland Tidings,
a Biauiiiu nepuuiican paper for 40
years, revolted against having a
"corked" candidate crammed down th
people's throat and it turned to Dr
Smith as the candidate the voters of
the state should elect governor on No
. The Tidings declared it was going
to support Dr Smith because he stands
boldly for ''strict law enforcement,
and does not hesitate to announce his
principles without inuendo or evasion. '
Withycombe Termed "Spineless."
On the other hand the paper char
acterizes Dr. Withycombe as "spine
less," and points out that "he an
nounces no principles, takes no stand

by his managers and approved by
The Banks Herald objects to Dr
Withycombe and has given Its suth
port to Dr. Smith for much the same
reasons. In a prominent editorial The
Herald says :
"There are two big points involved
in the present contest for the gover
norship: "The first point is contained' in the
question as to which candidate will
give the more business-like adminis
tration. "The second is as to which can be
relied upon to protect popular govern
ment. "Mr. Smith's record as school dirw-
tor for 18 years in Pendleton, as maydr
of Pendleton, and as state senator, is
known. It is as a result of his untir

was outlined; Dr. Wlthycombe's "har

was assailed, and. the Introduction of

Mr. Flegel again spoke upon tne
fuedamental principle of his campaign,
saying that his election will mean
that the people of. the district wish to
indorse President Wilson.
The president was characterized as
the greatest national leader since the
days of Lincoln; as the first national
leader in many years who had carried
out his campaign promise that the
tariff would be reduced; and as the
instigator of a foreign policy that in
these troublous times is causing every
nation at war to trust its international
diplomatic problems to our ambassa
dorial and ministerial staff.
Patriotism Weeded How.
"Now Is th time for citizens of the
United States to be patriotic and not
partisan," counseled Mr. Flegel, amidst
much applause. "The president has
asked that we give him an indorse
ment. Only by voting for those who
are his out and out supporters can
this be done."
Although the audience had been in-
Lformed that Senator Lane would not
be able to appear ana aner tne lasi
speaker had concluded and the peo
ple were leaving for home. Sheriff Tom
Word announced that he baa Just gov

he was on his way. The crowd eager

years. The people know me and be

this statement if I did not know It is
so. If I didn't believe In him I
wouldn't be here to fight for him.
The senator drew a laugh from his
auditors many times in picturing Mr
Booth's "insatiable appetite" for tim
ber land and in describing Hanleys
laree estates in eastern Oregon.
Booth and Hanley could not be such
bitter enemies, asserted Senator Lane,
when Dame Rumor linked Booth close

and Hanley with the Hill Interests
through the Oregon Western Coloni

don't think he is down for any regular
speech. He may possibly go out to

places and talk In a sort of an Informal
way. But," the man at the headquar

"I'm a Republican, and thought Td

are not afraid to have anyone hear

were called again.
