Washington, Oct. 28. Senator La
Follette left for Wisconsin last night,
after expressing hope that Senator
Chamberlain will be reelected from
Oregon. ' The coming number of La
Follette's magazine will carry an edi
torial expressing regret that a ma
jority of the Republicans in congress
are reactionary, -urging voters to ex
ercise fearless political action and ad
vocating ths election of Senator Cham
berlain in Oregon.
"At no .time in half a century has
there been such urgent demarn f or
fearless political independenceTaays
the editorial. "In Oregon Senator
Chamberlain is candidate for reelec
tion. His opponent la the head of the
Booth-Kelly Lumber company. Booth
is a reactionary of the bard shell
cast. He has . opposed every progres
sive measure which would make It
easier for the people of Oregon to
control their own government. Like all
standpatters he believes that govern
ment exists solely for the benefit of
business and particularly for the ben
efit of big business. The citizen is
not of much consequence, as Booth sees
It, excepting as he counts in a prop
erty way. Should Booth come to the
senate, monopoly, and especially the
lumber trust, woifl score one.
"But the United !?Lates senate does
not need any more senators of that
brand. It Is vastly better for the Re
publican party to have a vacant chair
on Its side of the chamber than to
have another occupied by a stand-pat
senator. r "
"Every vote cast on issues between
corporate Interests and the public In
terest by a standpat Republican sen
ator is a nail in the coffin of Repub
lican hope for 1916. The fewer Of these
votes the better. Eliminate them al
together and the record of the Re
publican party will be a progressive
record which will bring the party of
Lincoln back to power in the public
"Progressive Republicans of Oregon
will far better attest their devotion to
principles of real representative gov
ernment by voting for Senator George

"George Chamberlain is able, honest,
fearless, independent, he wears no

We shall sell every instrument In
this great stock before this, Port
land's greatest piano sale, closes, but
the end will no doubt come very soon,
for the crowds of enthusiastic piano
buyers are selecting many pianos
The manufacturers make the
prices and certain it is. when the
makers determine to get rid of a
certain number of pianos, -there
is not a firm, no matter what the cir
cumstances might be, that can dupli
cate the low prices.
The ' manufacturers' agreement
with the Eilers Musio House is that
every time their representatives sell
tww pianos the Eilers Music House
agrees to buy three more of their
surplus pianos which have accumu
lated On account of the recent stag
nation. The wheels of a great factory
cannot be stopped on a moment's no
tice. Therefore, the Eilers Musio
House buyer made an agreement to
take the surplus stock from seven of
the world's largest and best-known
makers of high-grade pianos, and the
manufacturers' representatives. Ells

All Questions of Doubt Regarding
the Service That Any of These
Pianos May Give Has Seen
When the Soule Bros. Failure Sale
'was In full force, many people would
not buy, for they realized there would
be no one to look to If the piano was
not just as it was represented. There
is now no cause for any thoughts of
this kind, for Eilers Musio House is
a money-back Institution. It guaran
tees quality and guarantees positive
satisfaction, or money back, a liberal
exchange agreement is Issued where
by if at any time within two years
if for any reason the piano purchased
is not in every way satisfactory, it
can be exchanged at full price paid for
any other new piano in our stock of
nearly all of the world's best-known
and highest-grade Pianos, Player Pi
anos and Baby Grand Pianos.
The price of the Checkering is
standard the world over, but owing
to our special arrangements with
the manufacturers we have also a
special proposition to offer on the
America's oldest-established and
