In California the La Follette propagandists have attempted
to drape La Follette in the garments of Roosevelt. Their false
:! representations have brought an indignant protest from Jirs.
. i Corinne Roosevelt Robinson, sister of Theodore Roosevelt. I In
a recent telegram; to Albert Searles of Los Angeles, formerly a
v Roosevelt Progressive, she said:1 !?
"My brother, Theodore Roosevel denounced La i
' ' 1 Follette in 1915, in 1917 and 1918 as the most dan- j
v ;- gerousand sinister influence in America. He called
; ! hiln his country's greatest menace. . Any Roose- j
. velt. Progressive who gets behind La Follette is a
traitor to Theodore Roosevelt. I am convinced that
"..! were my brother alive!
v Cool id ge and Dawes, as
La Follette was quoted in
all the Roosevelt Progressives
his (La Follette 's) candidacy,
- misled i by false representations of the La Follette supporters.
But Theodore Roosevelt's sister has torn the mask from La
y Follette V face; abd those who cherish the memory of Roose
v yelt can no longer be deceived: . j
The fact is that not only j in New England, where some of
the leading Democratic newspapers, such as the Boston Post,
and many leading members of that party are supporting Cool-
- idge, but in the Middle West, where La Follette propagandists
are the most active, and on the Pacific Coast, many thousands
, of voters will support the Coolidge electors--
Though casting their ballots for Democratic nominees in
state, district and county contests.
And the same thing will be very general with the former
, supporters of Roosevelt. I
.. I In all the states where it is appreciated that the electoral
votes will go to either Coolidge or La Follette, Democrats in
large numbers will take no chances. They will not throw their
. votes away on Davis, however much they i may admire " their
party candidate, i They will consider, that they can best serve
. their country by piaking certain that the electorial vote of the
state in which they reside is not cast for La Follette.

? 7 Tbe Statesman has an inquiry about the practicability of
sowing flax in the falL There was some volunteer flax har
vested itf the Dallas district last summer, the first to be brought
to4 the state flax blant. that turned out verv well. At that, timp
the writer suggested that here was a matter that deserved to
be experimented With. The fact is, it is now being experimented
with. Superintendent Crawford of the state flax plant has
already furnished! some seed to farmers with what he considers
; 9 the right kind of land for fall sowing, and several small fields
have already beeri planted; not exceeding five acres in any one
f field. In case the fall sown flax does not make a crop, the
state will lose the seed, and the farmer will lose his labor and
expense of prepatine the irround. If it tnm.

ford is willing td risk alxiut 100 acres, but not more. If any
farmer wishes to make a .larger experiment than with five
acres, he is at liberty to do so, on his own responsibility.

meet with drastic punishment. 1
As usual, a cripple is being put
forward to take the brunt of the
universal condemnation - of- the
spewing out of bile on the schools
of the city. This man is toot to
Diame. The man back of him
simply got tired of being licked
every week In another town and
when he came to Salem conceived
the idea of putting a cripple ahead
as a buffer In order to protect him
self. The public Is very rightly
placing the 'responsibility where
it belongs, on the principal not
on the agent. j. l. B.
There is something about a dem
ocratle campaign that makes the
men in it feel emboldened to put
oeiore the people untrue state
ments for the purpose ot decep
tion. A great paper like the Ore
gon Journal should not lend it
self to such a campaign. ' It is not
only lending itself, but it is lead
ing. ; Day after day nt is publish
ing statements calculated to arouse
resentment in the people In hopes
it will cause them to vote the dem
ocratic ticket. The Journal Is
smart enough to know that even If
they should get away with the
election the people would find out
the truth and resent It later. Hap-
pily every statement made Is being
challenged,- and the proof brought
Into the rebuttal demonstrates
clearly that the irreducible school
fund is not in bad shape, but ia in
good shape. Of course there hare
been some bad loans, and there
always will be, but the loans were
made for the purpose of helping
the farmers,' and it is to be ex
pected that some of them will be
unable to make the grade. - In the
cases where the, "land , has been
taken by the state, subsequent
sales have fully protected this ir
reducible fund.
At the present time there is an
effort being made to loan ' this
money to the bonding companies.
They pay about 4 per cent net.
The state is now getting 6 per
cent net. To sell to the bonding
companies would be to turn the
state money over to speculation,
and the loss is liable to be appal
ling. There have been recent inci
dents in Oregon of frightful losses
through this very sort of specula
tion. It was never intended for
the people of Oregon to use one
dollar for speculative purposes.
The rate to the farmers is 6 per
cent. In addition to getting 1 Vi
per cent additional interest over
the bond investment, the farmers
of Oregon are being helped.
Let us examine carefully into
some of these alleged losses. ; In
a report for which the state paid
$1200 under date of June 30th,
which was not made public until
the Democratic Oregon -Journal be
gan using it six weeks before the
election, 602 notes are called into
question and described as delin
quent. This amounts to $1,135,
000. No foreclosure proceedings
had been instituted In order to
make it appear that this large
number of notes and mortgages
are doubtful, interest is figured as
delinquent after six months. As
a matter of fact the interest was
paid-on all of these 602 notes in
Hull in the year 1923 and all but
a small percentage of them in the
fall of 1923. Therefore on June
30th, when this audit was made.
there were over 520 of the 602
notes on' which there was not one
year's interest due, " and yet for
purely political purposes the land
board is exploiting farmers notes
as delinquent and in bad shape.
There is little question about the
farmers being able to pay their
interest in full this year.' r
In addition to attempting to in
fluence the campaign this is an
attack upon the farmers of the
state, an effort to cripple 02 of
them, and hold them up as fail
ures. It Is not believed by com
petent Judges that the state will
ever lose one dollar of these 602
notes. t
A newspaper should not have to
use Its Bpace for the purpose of
urging people to do their plain
duty, but it is a fact that a good
many hundred people . in Salem
are nor registered. This Is bud-
posed to be the year of the big
vote. ; You are urged to I register
regardless of how you are going
to vote. If we have a government
participated in by practically all
the people we are bound to -have
better government than if we have
less than a 50 per cent vote. 1
Tne registration books close at
5 o'clock this evening. They have
been kept open nights in order to
accommodate late comers who
have . to work ', during opening
hours. If any workman has failed
to register he owes it to himself
and his country, to take the time
today to register. If any business
man has been so busy that he ne
glected to register he should rem
edy that neglect by registering to
day. The books close at 5 o'clock.
If there is a greater orator in
America than Raymond .Robins
this writer has not heard him
Mr. Robins is not only, an orator
but he is a deep thinker.
- He started life aa a miner, work
Ing for years in the coal mines.
He went north and found the end
of the rainbow in Alaska.! He
prospected there for a long time
and finally at his feet found great
wealth. He j came home, invested
his money and since that time he
and his wife have devoted their
entire time to welfare and uplift
work. Both are talented speak
ers. ' Both are devoted to human
welfare. -: '!
Mr. Robins is coming to Port
land on October 8, and he ought
to have an immense crowd, i He
will help every man who hears
him. He Is an inspirational talker.
He reasons fairly and pronounces
candidly. Raymond Robins is one
of the great men of America. ;
The county court has decided to
submit to the people the propo
sition of continuing health work
along progressive lines. Twenty
four hundred dollars will ; be ap
propriated if the people express
themselves favorably for j health
work in the county. There Is so
much to do in the way of teaching
the people' health and instructing
them practically that the county
will spend this, money with bet
ter effect than Considerable of the
money Is spent; and just as well
as the best of : it .is spent. The
board is anxious to give the peo
ple what they want, and it does
not want to be extravagant. If
the people want this health work
they will havel it, and our pre
diction is that they are going to
express themselves as wanting it.
In the Literary Digest 1924
presidential poll. President Cool
idge is still coining strong. There
are 19 states represented In the
current week and Oregon is one
of them. Six hundred and eightyi
nine thousand and. nineteen votes
are accounted tot and of this
Coolidge gets 397,522; Davis 118,-
259, and La Follette 164.366.
A curious thing about the vote
is that 137,306, did not vote for
president four years ago. In that
election. of the! votes cast in this
poll 402,186 Were republicans,
which shows that Coolidge comes
within 3,000 of holding the re
publican vote when Harding had
a landslide. Q In that election the
democrats cast 141,868 votes.
while there is for; Davis in this
poll 118,359. Ijt is of interest also
that La Follette runs considerably
ahead of Davis in the poll. In
California La Follette continues
to run strong.' The vote there
being, Coolidgp, 54,324; Davis,
6124, and La Follette 38,926.
The vote in f Oregon so far is
small, but Coolidge leads by a
gratifying majority. Of the votes
so far cast pool idge received
1455; Davis, 389, and La Follette
468.. .. r 1
There is a fight all over the
United States for president. In
the east it is ? between Coolidge
and Davis, but in a good many
places In the west it is between
Coolidge and La Follette.
