Candidate's Connection With
Telephone Company Is
' Pointing out the embarrassing
position ot Charles A. Hall, can
didate for governor, because of
his connection with the Coos &
Carry Telephone company as Its
president, W. E. Burke, campaign
manager for I. L. Patterson, one
of. Hall's opponents, has written
Hall challenging him to meet Pat
terson In debate. His letter to
Hall follows: , ;

the year 1921. filed with the pub

."According to ;thls report, the
Coos ; A Curry Telephone , com
pany fof which you are president,
is controlled by officials of the
Pacific Telephone & Telegraph
company. It is shown plainly, in
fact, since C. E. Hickman, division
superintendent of the Pacific Tel
ephone & Telegraph company, of
Portland, voted all the preferred
stock and one share of the com
mon stock as shown by an extract
from the minutes of the meeting
of the7board of directors on Jan

the preferred stockholders, all of

Pioneer Woman Replies
I speak for the women of this
city who are supporters of George
White for governor. It seems the
opposition press, mostly Demo
cratic, have only ridicule for him
'and. his friends. Service men get
nothing but. ridicule and abuse
from the Capital Journal. If that
is the real spirit of the people of
Oregon I am much mistaken.
Where shall we find men in ru
ture to serve their country In time
of need it we heap abuse and bur
lesque upon every ex-soldier who
shows his head in public affairs?
Are the civilians alone worthy of
fair treatment? As to a military
man for governor, Was not Gov
ernor Lord, a trained soldier, one
of the most popular governers the
state ever had? I have looked in
vain for praise and commenda
tion by the Capital Journal for
any of the candidates for gover
nor, and it is indirectly support
ing all but George White. It has
no material for praises in the rec
ords of any of the candidates
two senators, two representatives
and the present governor, the men
who nave been making- Our laws'
ana running up our, taxes It has
only condemnation for White and
that beeadse he was a soldier. Is
that fair to the people? It cannot
deny that he has a record of sav
ing $90,006 to the taxpayers of
the $140,000 the state gave him to
conduct the draft In Oregon. Can
it show where any of the old
guard lt'is supporting. Republican
or Democratic, ever handed back
any money entrusted to them? Is
it not a fact that the Democrat it
is supporting for governor was
the only member of the state
draft board who demanded and
took pay for his services? The
Journal will swallow any of the
old state house machine that has
run the legislature for the last
ten years and given us the high
est taxes in the United States, If
it can only succeed in defeating
White for the nomination. I am
one of the women who can see
through, this sham of a reform
and socalled Independent news
paper that is really the organ ot
the old bi-partisan machine that
has never done the people any
justice except to keep its unprin
cipled politicians in the fat places.
We love George White and they
hate him because he has had the
kind of training that would make
all that kind of patriots respon
sible and, after trial on their rec
ord, they would be asked to walk
out of office. White Is the only
man the old legislative machine
workers, who take the last dol
lar in sight and then cry for more,
fear. They can manipulate all the
rest as they have done in the past.
No wonder they weep and gnash
their teeth at prospect of retiring
if a main like White la nominated
May 19, as I hope he will be.'

Editor Statesman :
The claim has been made by
Governor Olcotfs boosters that
he stands upon his record.
What is his record as to law
Why did he withdraw efficient
special agents January 1, on a
plea of economy?
What is Olcott's attitude on the
Portland roadhouse evil?
An editorial in the Portland
Telegram for May 10, outlines the
roadhouse situation, and follows
"The .roadhouse known as the
Twelve-Mile House - at Base' Una
road and Falrview avenue has
again been raided by the sher

a public nuisance. The raid was
made In the early hours of Sun

houses to do their best business
