I Campaign Falsehood ' ur
I culated by Oregonian,

Kepublican natorlal Candidate Cast
Sls Ballot Against Constitutional
Amendment February 11, 1907.
Another falsehood, published by the
Oregonian Jn an effort to bolster the
candidacy of K. A. Booth for the Unit
ed States senate, has been nailed by
Hon. B. F. Jones of Roseburg, who
was a member of the house of repre
sentatives of the state legislature at
the same time that Mr, Booth was a
member of the state senate.
The Oregonian says that as a mem
ber of the state legislature Mr. Booth
always worked for woman suffrage.
Mr. Jones cites the page of the 1907
senate journal which shows that Mr.
Booth voted against a resolution sub
mitting the question of equal suffrage
to the male voters of the state. He,
by his vote, refused even to let the
men voters of the state have a chance
to . vote dn the question of whether
tjhey should gl.ve to the women the
xame suffrage rights that they pos
Keesed. In a message to The Journal.

says: 'As a member of the state leg

Booth always worked for and voted

of days last April. The cost of clerk,
hire remained the same, which means
that the profit was much greater.
These records not only indicate the
success of the parcel post, but give
opportunity to say that It Is the policy
of the present administration to ex
tend the service and constantly in

Biff Gain In Exports.
The northwest's grain export abroad
this year will bring to the northwest
$30,000,000, predicted Mr, Mills" this
morning. This does not include ship
ments to California of ' elsewhere in
this country. Thirty million dollars
represents SO.OOOiOOO bushels of wheat,
or wheat turned into flour, because
every bushel of wheat is worth a dol
lar. Last year the foreign grain ex
ports of the northwest totaled 25.000,
000 bushels. The gain is 5,000,000
bushels; in money the gain is greater,
because prices are better.
"A nimble $30,000,000 in the north
west means much," said Mr. Mills. "It

lumber Market Encouraging.
The lumber market has been slug
gish, but I am firmly convlncea tne
lumber market has struck bottom.
When it oe's it will go upward. The
outlook is hopeful. Lumber may now
be shipped through the Panama canal
to the Atlantic seaboard at 40 per cent
of the rail haul. -This means that we
have opportunity not only to market
lumber on the eastern seaboard, but
as far back as Pittsburg and Buffalo.
As soon as the people of the east be
come accustomed, to the use of 'our
light fir after the heavier southern
pine, our market for lumber in we
east will constantly grow.
"The shipment of lumber and other
of our products through the Panama
canal will have great effect on ship
ping. It will not be a great number or
years before lines of vessels will be
arriving and leaving our Pacific ports
dally. We will begin to realize- soon
what the Panama canal means to us In
commerce and community building-
"Our lumber Bhould find buyers

wheat in the middle, west. This will
be sold, but must wait largely upon
the return to normal conditions of

prosperity depends, must find a mar

New York Meeting Agrees to
Abandon "Made in Amer

(tTatted Pre Leaied Wire.)
New York, Oct. 28.- Hereafter
will be "Made in the TJ. S. A."
That slogan will replace that
"Made in America" In the battle for
commercial supremacy by American
business men. Miss Annie H. Peck.
mountain climber and explorer, was
responsible for the change.
At a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria
hotel here today of business men and
others interested In a campaign to
popularize American-made goods. Miss
Peck strongly advocated the change.
"How would it do for us to say that
Uruguay was fast becoming Amer
icanized or. that Canada is becoming
Americanized," she said. "South
Americans are as much Americans as
we are, and any slogan which hurts
their feelings will Injure our trade."

Two hundred commercial represent

one of the most enthusiastlo of its

by Harry Tipper of Texas.

the same as obtains in tnese private
printing houses, it is conservatively
estimated that this mass of printed
matter would cost something in ex

Other candidates for congress would
have - been required to pay regular
postage rates on this mass of litera

session and it began 11 days before

In an advertisement today, Mr. Laf

duty only a little over three months,
and that during this time he was pre
senting the land grant case to the cir
cuit court of appeals at San Francisco.
Inasmuch as Mr. Lafferty's contention
in the land grant cases is diametric
ally opposed to the contention of the
government In bringing the action, it
has been pointed out that this effort
of Lafferty's is to defeat the govern

H But Mr. Lafferty's campaign has
been conducted through other channels

working In conflict with the effort of
the government to reclaim lands
charged to have been unlawfully held.
Other candidates who were making
the race during the- same period did
not have this salary to sustain them
Just as they lacked the opportunities
for presenting their claims to the vot
