Joe Williams Candidate for Republican Nom ination for Sheriff 'Joe Williams, candidate for the republican nomination as sheriff. was born in Seligman, Missouri, July 9, 1890. He moved to Kan sas wnen 15 years of age, then to Washington and Oregon in 1907. Mr; Williams located In Salem, January 1, 1923. Mr. Williams has ,A daughter, 21, and a son, 11. He is a mem ber of Elks lodge 336 and won national attention for his sales service in 1931 with the Wlllard battery company. Williams serv ed for one and one-half years in the sheriff's office in Pacific county, Wash., during the world war period. In his Judgment, tho use of good common sense is the Important thins; in handling any business, with a close watch being kept regularly . oyer all depart ments and plenty ot hard work used. '' ' Williams, while a member 'ot the school board -of the Liberty district, has succeeded in reduc ing the. tax levy 25 per cent each year. he was on tho board. The board and the faculty, neverthe less, have raised the standard efl the school from thirteenth in the county to third. Williams consid ers himself an economist in public affairs, efficiency considered. His statement on several moot ed questions Is: ' ,v "As to the question that has been asked regarding prohibition. or the 12th amendment. I do not feel .that that is a matter for me to answer, as well as J would like to, that Is a question squarely up to the people. . As long as the law appears on the statute books It must be enforced as all other laws, and is not for me, to say whether It is good or bad. as I do not know and could have little to. do with making a change If I did know just what was best. I voted for the law as we now have it, but do not know what I would do In case It should come up for a rote again. I would nave to consider the method proposed. I hare al ways been a law abiding' citizen and believe In all things that, are good and nothing bad. I have a family and believe" In building men and women up In character Instead of down. To my belief the man that answers the church questions, as the church would have them answered is doing an injustice td the cause In question. as I do not believe any one Is In a position to know Just what Is best at this time anent this question of prohibition. We have laws gov erning the subject which should be considered sufficient to cope with the situation." I when he should have been read ing the law books. Not having the industry to state the- reasons liberately false.

The opinion of the court there is based on a statute different tTom the Oregon law and has no application what ever to !tbe-matter here, as Mc Mahan irell knows. Declare McMahan Knows He's Wrong "McMahan further knows; aa everyone else knows, that I never personally received one eent of the money he- speaks about. When Mr. Oehlhar was TMstrlct attorney and when J. O. Heltzel was dis trict attorney, the county court paid their stenographers $50 a month; One of our stenographers has received 850 a month from the county since I have been dis trict attorney. This amount Is only nart of the salary paid this sten ographer. These payments have been authorised by Judges Bush ey, Downing, Hunt and Sleg mund. every one of whom has been an honest, able and honor able eounty Judge and whose good name cannot be besmirched by McMahan. ''He also has accused me ot permitting the calling ot witness ea for a defendant before the grand Jury in a certain case. Ap parently, his conception of justice and th duty of a grand jury is to Indict whether it is Justifiable or not. Next we will hear that peo ple he Is out to hook" shall not have any, standing In court what ever. If he looked up the law. (and this law Is not silly), be would find that It is proper for a grand jury to hear evidence In be half ot the defendant. In the case he mentions, which was the case ef the state of Oregon against the Oregon Pulp A Paper company, he forced I the matter, before the grand Jury at the taxpayers ex pense, when the- difficulty had been almost remedied, and after an Indictment' was found, on his own motion dismissed the case without . trial,, a most unusual thing for a court to do. The net result Was loss of public money "One of tho most recent dem onstrations of McMahan politics. and his disposition to shirk the responsibilities of his office. Is his shifting of tho tax 'tuition case from his own shoulders to those of Judge Lewelllng. It was sug gested i that for reasons of pro priety McMahan should not pass upon that particular case Inas much as he had given an uncon eidered 'curbstone' opinion on the question before It was presented to hinU Since then, I am reliably Informed, he has expressed an op posite opinion. That was the po litical thing to do.) Undaunted, however, McMahn Insisted upon the opportunity to sit as judge la the case. Accordingly, the case came before him. I prepared and submitted a brief the day follow ing and and it has been in his bands for almost three weeks. Blames) McMahan For Recent Delay ' "Instead of giving the matter his thought and attention, for which be is paid, he devoted his time to the furtherance ot the candidacies ot certain Individuals for office, and to. thewTlting ot his recent tirade. In tho mean time, he was waited upon by one or two! delegations ot citizens In terested In receiving a decision, of the case, one way or another; These citizens wanted action. Mc Mahan could not make his usual excuse that tho delay was caused bv - too much - court work, be cause there had not been any, The facts were too well and gen orally known in this case of pub lic Interest. He has spent his Vmm playing politics and damning eaTers for mlncondnct in office Chester A. Page Candidate for City Councilman, Ward Two kind, he did what might be ex pected of him. He passed the buck. as usual, to a judge. In tact, he was so eager to crawl out from under that he transferred the case In midstream to Judge Lewelllng, even before Judge Lewelllng re ceived his commission to serve as judge. The example0 of the double- dealing McMahan is capable of, his question put to Judge Sleg- mund as to why he bought a law library when he had no legal -au thority so to do, should receive passing attention. For years Mo ahau complained about the loss of time caused by having to go to the supreme court law library nd finally the county court was pre vailed upon to- buy a small work ing library for the court house. McMahan wanted that library, he was the one supposed to be bene fited by having it, he knew that the county court was buying It rid urged It. I have now In my possession and will show it on re quest, a list ot law books which McMahan asked to have in that library and which books were ac cordingly bought and the list Is in his own handwriting. He now blames the county court for do ing what he urged and participat ed in doing himself. "The question Is should such a man as McMahan be the political dictator ot this or any other coun ty?" Chester A. Page, candidate for the city council, was born in Whltinsville, Mass., June 30, 1881. He lived in the New Eng land states until 1919 when he moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Then he transferred to Columbia vUle, Mich., in 1921 and stayed there until 1923. He-was chair man of the school board during his residence there. Page lived In Missouri from 1924 to 1921 coming to Salem, late In 1926. For the last five years he has been superintendent' of the Tho mas Kay -Woolen mills. He Is firm believer In having the city own and control its water works and have a plentiful supply of pure water. He believes the wa ter works can be so managed that they will be a source of revenue to the city without Increasing the rates to the users or (axes to the property owners. Page declares himself as a man personally and politically dry. He believes that It Is possible to have the laws enforced It an honest effort Is made to do so. He Is a Mason and a member ot the Bap tist church. "For many reasons I consider Salem the beat place to live that I know of and I want to I n TO IT CHAMBER MEET SILVERTON. May 16. Theo dore P.
