? SOME MORE MISTAKES TO CORRECT
That section of the narrowly partisan Democratic press
which can find virtue only where Democratic affiliations are
thickest seems to be pretty much upset by the present state
wide movement to bring George A. -yiiite of Salem into the
Republican gubernatorial, contest.
Mere mentiori of the possibility aroused the irritability
of the Capital Journal to the exploding point v
....... And the first explosion came with a black headline an
nouncing "Colonel White Arrested for Speeding' :
It was a hideous charge of misconduct for the Capital
Journal uncovered the fact that Mr. White "was traveling
26 miles an hour when arrested" and that he was to be
"arraigned in court at 2 p. m." ' v t ,-.
Doubtless the thousands of enthusiastic and loyal citizens
over the state who are petitioning Mr. Wbite to lay aside
his own wishes in the matter and become a candidate for
Governor would have dropped their work after this glaring
disclosure had not the. Capital Journal in its next issue, in
an announcement tinder the caption "Capital Journal Makes
Mistake,", confessed, that the speeding story was made of
whole-cloth. C v:-''."' 'V'-'-' C---'
So the Capita Journal tried it again and In . a double-
column leading editorial fired a broadside the gist of which
was to the effect, that Mr. White was "appointed by Gover
nor Olcott" and so shouldn't run against himr that as Ad
jutant General he raised, his own salary and changed the
state law so as to bestow upon himself a life job and that
he increased the cost of-, the National Guard from $100,000
to $170,000 at the last session of the Legislature.
All of which, like the charge "Colonel White Arrested for
Speeding," would be very interesting and constructive if even
remotely based on fact, v . ' - v
The facts concerning Mr. White's appointment as Adju
tant General are definitely known.
He was appointed Adjutant General by the late Governor
sWithycombe - 'J.:r .;r v.':. j" 'l:r ' '
And after his brilliant performance of organizing the
i state's man-power and resources and putting Oregon first in
; every effort during the crisis of 1917, Mr, White took a leave
of-absence from Governor .Withycombe so that he might go
; with the Oregon men to France as a volunteer in the Ameri
"i can- army; ' ' ; i k; 1 s.j -'V ? ;:i l f -V ' - J. : -.. -: .
I ; While, he was. away "in service, Oregon's: war Governor
J was opposed for re-election by Mr. Olcott, who was defeated
fit trt last pe4itr ' Klharflv nffpr. rump ih rfajitri of finv.
ernor Withycombe, and when Mr. White returned to his home
'( and his work, the war ended, Mr. Olcott as Secretary of State
. was sitting in on the job of Governor. , : . '
M It takes' only a cursory inquiry of the laws of Oregon to
show that when Mr. White became Adjutant General, the
? tenure clause was the same as it is today.; While he was ab
sent in his country's seryice, the law was changed, and the
last Legislature restored vthe position o the same status as
when he left for service. .
As to the- salary increase. Mr. George W. Joseph, chair
, man of the Military Affairs Committee which handled that
matter, is authority for he statement that Mr. White said
he was not asking an increase; and the entire Oregon Na
tional Guard Association! of Oregon, which sponsored the
State Military Code, will testify that Mr. White openly and
directly opposed writing any increase into the bill and was
voted down. i ' ' r-
In stating that Mr. White "increased the.apprbpriations
for his department from $100,000, to $170,000, the Capital
Journal neglects to note that the 5100,000 was provided when
the National Guard was still in the Army, and that prior to
Mr. White's return the little pittance of a force that was built
up operated at a loss. No mention of the fact is made that
Mr. White brought $200,000 into the state from the U. S.
Treasury last , year, and that this money was distributed
among twelve counties, $16,000 of it in Marion county
And that up to the time of Mr. White s return it was cost
ing the state more to operate its military department. than
was received back from the federal government
But, for all that, why should the Capital Journal try to
be honest1 and thorough in such matters, for it is nervous
and irritated over the possibility that Mr: White may step
in to disturb the possibility of m continued Democratic po
litical picnic in Oregon.

a lot. It will mean the spinning
of flax In Salem in due course of
time: ' when the growers and the
stockholders of the, new company,
and perhaps other companies to
be organized, will be getting some
of the "spread" that now goes
to the twine trust, which is
charging fishermen and others $3
a pound for their twine. And It
will mean, in good time, the mak

the development of the flax and J
hemp Industries here into one of
the greatest if not the greatest
of all the Industries of Oregon.
