Successful and Gratifying; Demo

Joint Canvass In Marion County.
The democratic forces In Oregon
are diretlng a strong fight ngainst
the state printing as it is now con
ducted. A state printer is elected in
Oregon every four years and a large
appropriation Is made for the depart
ment at every "legislative session.
The state printing for a single year
in Oregon recently cost the enormous
sum of ?4o,989, according to the sta
tistics published in n recent issue of
the Salem Capital Journal, which is
making a strong fight for n reforma
tion in the management of tho state
In Saturday's Journal, Editor Ho
fer makes some rather startling
statements in an editorial arraign
ment of the Oregon state printing of
fice graft. Appended are given some
excerpts from the editorial:
"There are thousands of people in
the state who think the state owns
the state printing plant, and that
lie people elect and own the state
printer. But that is not the case.
The state printing plant is owned by
ex-State Printer F. C. Baker, who
ownes all the presse sand the type
and leases the same to whosoever is
elected state printer on any terms
they can agree upon. These rentals
have paid as high as 25 per cent, and
it is estimated by some in a position
to know that out of the total appro
priations for the state printing office
for four years the owner of the nlant
has received ?30,000 to ?40,000. We!
do not state this as a fact, but it is
stated by persons in a position to
Reviewing the nomination of Mr.
Whitney, the republican candidate,
the editorial continues:
The way Whitney was nominated
ought to convince anyone that a new
graft will be started. On the first
ballot there was no nomination made
in the republicas state convention.
Then Jack Matthews assembled his
C7 delegates in the rear of the con
vention hall and the word was pass
ed and at the next ballot it is said
by those who were in close touch
with the contest that G7 ballots went
into the hat from Jack's hand in a
bunch, and Mr. Whitney of the Al
bany Herald was nominated. It is
also stated that the deal to give it to
Whitney was made by W. P. Keady
and Jnck Matthews, and they are to
get $5000 apiece out of the office, but
for this we cannot vouch, except that
it comes from a source in their coun
cils." The Journal says the only way to
break the enormous graft is the de
feat of Whitney, who has made no
declaration concerning his proposed
conduct of the office, and the elec
tion of Mr. Godfrey, the democratic
nominee, who has signified his wil
lingness to accept the office at a flat
salary of $2,500 a year. Mr. Godfrey
is a strong union man and if he
is endorsed and supported by the la
bor organizations throughout the
state his election is probable. At any
rate, the contest between the two
candidates and the endeavor to intro
duce a reformed administration of
the office will constitute an extreme
ly interesting feature in connection
with the Impending campaign. j
