Arriving at the court house the
court room was soon filled to over

L. B. Reeder 'presided at the meet

eulogistic remarks introduced "Ore

greeted with wild enthusiasm as he
stepped forward to deliver nis ad

After stating that ho was- no pub
lic speaker and would not attempt
to make a regular speecti, no an
nounced his firm belief that he would
be elected on Monday next and said
that in this event he would go to
Salem not as a representative of any
particular party, but as the servant
of the entire people of the state o
Oregon. He would take up the reins
of government where they had been
laid down by Governor Geer and be
ing a practical man of business,
would expect to devote a good por

He took it that tho people of tho
state in electing a governor, were
merely selecting a business manager
whose duty as chief executive was
to look after the affairs of the state
in the same manner as he would look
after the management of any great
If .elected, as he fully believed he
would be, he would not attempt to
pose as a reformer, but would give
the people of Oregon, as far as laid
in his power, a thorough-going, clean
cut and upright, businesslike admin
istration in every detail.
About the Philippines,
Tho most Important Question be
fore the peoplo today, he said, was
that of the disposition to be made of
the Philippine Islands, and on this
question he was heartily in accord
with tho platform as adopted by tho
republican party. Continuing, ho de
clared himself thoroughly in accord
with the policy of the republican
party of the state of Oregon as set
forth in its declaration of principles,
saying that the party was one which
stood for everything progressive and
aggressive ,and that he was proud to
stand before the peoplo of the statu
as its standard-bearer.
Will Administration Be Upheld?
The principal question to be decid
ed at the June election was whether
or not the people of the state of Or
egon would, by voting for him, up
hold the noble work of the adminis
tration and show their appreciation
of its great services to the country,
to this coast and to Oregon in par
ticular: or by voting for Chamber
lain they would show thoJr dlsap
provaj of the strong and rigorous
policy-of President Roosevelt,
-"L.et us by our votes," said he,
"inform all tho world that we know
that while the strong, vigorous and
honest Roosevelt is at the helm of
our ship of state no man, or no pow
er on earth, will haul down the flag
in the Philippines."
Continuing, ho declared himself
favorable to organized labor,, opposed
to the present system of distributing
and strongly In fnvor of state olllc

he could take them down to Portland

clared that ho had conducted his
office honestly and that his fees woro
fixed by law and collected by the
marshal and not by himself.
The charge that ho had charged the
county exorbitant rates of interest for

gotten out of tho county In this way
was 15 per cent discount on tho scrip,
which was often unsalable at any

he had charged only reasonable fees

protection of the law of limitation In
case anyonp wished to institute suit
for the recovery of the money which
lie was alleged to have wrongfully
secured from tho county.
He also challenged tho originators
of tho story that ho was spending
largo sums of money on the campaign
to show where ho had expondod $1
or any other sum Ulogally or other

Introduced and mado a vigorous
speech which was almost entirely,
howover, confined to an attack upon
the democratic party and Its candi
date for governor, George 13. Chamberlain.
Tho great concourse which had
gathered at tho court house that
evening, ho said, was a fitting trlb
uto to tho distinguished gentleman
who had been mado tho Btandard
bearer of tho party and an apprecla
tlon of tho doubio interest which tho
peoplo of Eastern Oregon had In tho

of tho state to tho gubernatorial
chair. AM through this part of tho
state thoy had been greeted by the
same kind of crowds and had hardly
found a hall of sufficient capacity to
hold those who had turned out to
hear tho republican candidate.
Some of tho candidates on tho
other side had brought a serious
chargo against Mr. Furnish, ho said.
They did not question his capabili
ties, his honor or character, but they
brought the more serious chargo that
