A statement has Just been issued bv
the Central Labor Council of Oregon,
through its secretary, E. E. Southard,
calling upon the laboring people of the
state to defeat Robert A. Booth, Re
publican candidate for the United
States senate, because he Is opposed to
the best interests of the people of the
state. Denial is made of the claim
circulated abroad that organized labor
espouses Mr. Booth's cause. The state
ment follows:
"To the Laboring Men and Women
of Oregon Organized labor believes
that Mr. Booth should be defeated. It
Is Impossible that Mr. Booth can rep
resent the common people of Oregon.
His every Interest is opposite to the
interest of the common people.
"In reiteration of Its stand against
Booth's candidacy it calls upon labor
and its friends to defeat Mr. Booth
for senator.
"Further, the Central Labor Coun
cil believes that the common people.
the laboring men, organized and unor
ganized, will Judge fairly the candl
dates for this most Important office.
"It. therefore, decries the activities
of individuals, who are attempting, in
the name of labor, to further the
Jdootn candidacy.
"In Justice to Mr. Booth of any
other candidate for office, and In de
fense of the good name of organised
labor, the Central Labor Council is
desirous of having; It publicly known
that the votes of labor are not car
ried in the 'vest pocket' of any self
appointed leader.
"We believe that the laboring men
will decide this question for them
selves in the best interest of Oregon."

berlain, Dr. C. J. Smith for governor
and Frederick Holllster for congress
has aroused the Indignation of the Ger
mans of that county, who aeem to think
they know better than the Oregonian
what action they took when they were
in session.
,At the time. The Journal published
anjaccount of the meeting and the in
dorsement of, the three candidates.
Then the Oregonian published a story
denying that such action was taken by
the Washington county Germans.
Chamberlain Indorsed.
"Washington county German socie
ties did indorse Senator Chamberlain,
Dr. Smith and Frederick Holllster,'"
writes Adam Bell, a business man of
Centerville, near Cornelius.
He says when Fred Bulling, presi
dent of the Cornelius German speaking
society, made an affidavit regarding
the matter that he made a "Schwaben
stretch," as the affidavit amounts to
"In the first place, there was never
a meeting held at Cornelius for over a
year," writes Mr. Bell, "and further
more, there was. no meeting" at any
place on Saturday. October 24. : Our
last meeting was on Sunday, October
11, at Eugene Dellplanch's residence,
near Centerville.
"This was a Joint meeting of the
three Washington county
from Cornelius, Beaverton a
wood. President Bulling cal
meeting to order, and" as soon
delegations from Beaverton an
wood arrived we worked out a ticket.
Dr. Smith for governor. Chamberlain
for senator and Holllster for congress
were indorsed unanimously.
Will Hot Indorse Withycombe.
"Gerhard Goetze and myself were
delegates to the Federation of German
Speaking Societies in Portland, and
we presented the above three names
with our county ticket there on Mon
day evening, October 12, at Turn hall"
J. H. Vaa Lorn of Verboort confirms
the above statements in a letter he
also has written to The Journal. A
to the action of the Federation of Ger
man Speaking Societies in Portland, he
does not attach much importance, as it
was taken by a comparatively small
number of delegates and officials,
"The members here know that
Washington county wlir not Indorse
Withycombe, not because he is or
English birth, for Germans have bet
ter sense." he writes, "but they do
not Relieve in Withycombe's princi-plea-d?n
the single item veto, and his
recent stepping across the fence will
not help him now.
Chamberlain Is Favorite.
"As to Chamberlain, we know that
he is the favorite of all Germans we
have so far met, both those belonging !
to the country and to the state or? !
ganization outside the county.
"We know the Individual and col-l
lectlve status of the Germans of thisT
section, and we find few that have '
faith In the Oregonian in matters of
party politics, and whom and what it
advocates are hung up until the Ger
mans here know better.
We have over S0 rotorm here In
side the expectation and hope of a
Bharp advance in conditions, with the
gradual liberation of buri? products for
export and the certainty that the
United States now holdS the key to
the foreigp trade situatldn.

Southern Oregon State Normal School Ashland
Oregon is the only state in the Union that ever reduced the number
of its normal schools?
Only five states in the Union have a smaller equipment for normals
than Oregon would were all three of its schools running?
Oregon's schools must find over 1000 new teachers each year?
Eighty per cent of the applicants for teachers' certificates in Oregon
last year had received no training above the eighth grade?
The Southern Oregon State Normal was successfully conducted for
14 years until the legislature deadlocked over the regular appro
priation? It has a plant ready to open up tomorrow, sufficient to mee.t all
requirements for several years?
Not one of Southern Oregon's counties has an educational institution
to which the state contributes a dollar of support?
To the average taxpayer of the state this school will mean less than
2 cents per .year? To the man with property assessed at $4000
it means the price of one cigar a year?
This school is to train the trainers of your children?
For the sake of our children, vote for the Southern Oregon State
Normal School, General Election November 3, 1914.
