Hand every other place a maximum
i 'amount of people could be reached
; with minimum effort.
Not a legislative candidate is
i sanguine about victory, unless it
be Romeo Gouley of Brooks, the
1 only candidate for reelection.
Gouley himself does not admit
s victory but the feeling prevails
i there that he Is a likely winner.
Frank Davey, now 82, is the vet
1 eran of the aspirants for the legis
i lature. having served three terms
and having been speaker. A defin
ite cleavage in the ranks came
during the week when the Hop
i growers' league endorsed Candi
dates Davey, Gouley, Jones, Har
ris and Pettyjohn as the five men
. who were most amenable to the
; league's thinking on the prohlbi
: tion question. Inasmuch as all can
! dldates had been questioned, ap-
parently Candidate Martin. Pau
, lus, Abrams, Pugh and Settlemler
were the candidates least amen
1 able to the league's attitude.
Considerable speculation Is
abroad on the chance of Mrs.

north-end candidate will pull a

the only one of the three candU
dates who has : made a decided
dry stand. He has . been dis
appointed In finding the "drys'
not as thoroughly behind his race
as he wished. Ben F. West who
for eight years in the 1912-1920
period was assessor, tried to ap
pease both . the "wet' and the
dry ' group and meanwhile to
divert that issue to a minor place
and to stress the assertion that he
could cut expenses 10 to 33 per
cent In the assessor's office.
Oscar A. Steelhammer, incum
bent, is reputed to be satisfactory
to the "wet" interests although
he Insists, as does West, that the
issue of prohibition has nothing
whatever to do with the assessor's
job. Steelhammer has been ac
tive, however, handing out cards,
playing trombone solos and in
general bestirring himself aa any
candidate does when a race la on
Steelhammer because of his wide
acquaintance and the split field
against him is considered to have
the inside track although this may
be a year of upsets.
Barrtck Is Making
Probably no candidate for of
fice has made a more systematic,
continuous and quietly vigorous
campaign than has L. E. Barrlck
who wishes to be county coroner.
He knows that3 In opposing Lloyd
T. Rlgdon he takes on an oppon
ent whose family is long and
favorably known in the county
and a man who is identified
through years of experience with
the coroner's Job. But Barrlck
has been undismayed: he has Pas
sed out cards, shaken hands, done
quartet singing work, gained
strength through the lodge, serv

places near Rigdon or defeat him
it will be because, first the pys

change, or else because a syste

brings results. Both men are

Allan G. Carson took the lead
and set the pace for the race for
district attorney. William H.
Trlndle, while out a bit during the
week, has conducted more of a
"front porch" campaign. Judge L.
H. McMahan. while denying his
support of Trlndle, undoubtedly is
back of him and the pro-McMa-han,
anti-Carson support will all
go to Trlndle. Carson gains some
strength from the fact the name
Carson has long been associated
with the district attorney's Job
and many rotors will be prone to
vote for Allan thinking he la John,
his brother, who for 12 years has
been district attorney. On the oth
er hand, the opposition is making
much of the fact that the Job has
been In one family for 12 years

Ratcllff has taken figures from

he feels show that the sheriffs
