A practicing attorney in Umatilla
county for twenty-three yean contln
uoasly, haa been reitulurly nominated
for Prosecuting Attorney. He served
a Deputy District Attorney of Uma-
ii i in vminiy ior two yeara under Hnm
'E. Van-Vactor, 1H1-JJ, while tlr.
Van Vactor resided at l!eppiur. At
that time the District wn composed
of two countloa, Umatilla and Morrow,
nd a Deputy wai necessary. Blnee
1114, the District haa been composed
of Umatilla County only. Since 1116
the tux-payera have been paying two
calarlea to run tha office of District
Attorney: Ono to Mr. Keator and one
to hla Deputy. If I am elected. I will

I charge Mr. Keator, my opponent,
with reckless extravagance In office,
not only In requiring a salaried Dep
uty at the expense of taxpayer, but in
bringing such expensive casus In court
aa the Homer Watts case and the Jim
Meana case. These two cases, If prop
er judgment had been used, would
never have been brought Into court
They cost the taxpayers several hun
dred dollars and there was no compe
tent evidence in either case to justify
a conviction. Muny other expensive
case can be named which should not
have been brought. A District Attor
ney aliould make careful investigation
before filing Informations, or causing
Indictment and not harrasa people
through "spite" or "niullce" at the ex
pense of taxpayers.
If r am elected I pledge myself to
strict law enforcement and will devote
my entire time and attention to the
duties of the office, I will see to It
that every person arrested shall be im
mediately taken before a magistrate in
the manner provided by law and giv

for weeka without sWh. As chief le
gal advisor of the county,' I will not
permit the "brutal third degree" to bi
given to any prisoner at any time by
any detcetlvea or any other person.
1'oor people shall have the same care

I will give every person a square deal
and protect the taxpayers against of

Orleans. All America hung breathless
In suxpenHe over what the fate of the
Utile band was to bo when tho news
came that the "Ixmt Huttulon" hud
been cut off and surrounded by over
whelming numbers. All America, i
thouith miildcnwl by news that many
had fallen, wus thrilled with pride
that a gallant romant hud not surren
dered and were again within the Am
erican lines, Vhittlcncy among them.
No cause over had more gallant-defenders,
Tho best blood of a glorious
nation carried tho flag through those
dreadful days in the Argonne. The
best traditions of a majestic country
wore examplcd by Whittlesey's famous
reply, "(So to Hell," to tho German
commander's demand fof surrender.
And all that time, buck In America,
In spite of the loyalty of many Arner-
latin-flrst Germans, George .Sylvester
Vlereck "was fomenting sentiment
against tho nvur. He was spreudlng
poisonous propaganda to undcrmlno
American morale. . Jle was organizing
the hyphenates to make weaker the
very cause for which Whittlesey and
Ma little band were fighting and dying.
While Whittlesey was trying to make
the war a victorious war Vlereck was
trying fo make It li failure.
lioih are still stardlng by their for
mer faith. With twe memory before
him of the brave boys of the "Losit
Battalion" who fell. Whittlesey warns
Ids country, through the league of Na
tions, to throw lu weight aga'nst the
future, wars his fallen comrades died
to avert. Vlereck, always a defeatist,
always for Germany first, la leading
hordes of voters on American soil to
undo tho great work for attaining
which th'me American boys gave their
all.1 He la organizing Harding cluoe
among the pro-German hyphenates.
Whittlesey- is a leader in a cause to
organise the world for Justice and
peace; Vlereck is a Jeader in the effect
to free Germany from the Paris cove
nant and give her another chance, by
ff rce of firms, to recover Alsaee-Lor-,

Harding. AVhIch of the two leaders

Smith Joslyn, the Harvard undergrad

by the republican national committee
last spring for the best suggestion for

llarding and will vote for Governor
Cox. In a telegram to the democratic
national committee today, he stated
his reason for quilting tho party that
accepted his suggestions.
'1 regurd the League of Nations as
tho supreme Issue of tho campaign,"
said he. "Senator Harding has suc
ceeded in so far as making himself
clearly understood as rejecting utterly
tho League of Nations as It now stands
or as modified by any, of tho reserva

pretation but rejection that he is seek
ing. At no time during tha campagin
has he intimated in any of his public
utterances that he would If America
so desired, endeavor to bring about
the ratification of the covenant with
reservations proposed In the senate.
Indeed all his promises have Just the
opposite Intention. He has approved
the stand taken by those w ho are bent
on the destruction not only of the exP
sting league but of any association of
nations which would at all be effec

The undorslgned recommend this
amendment for the Increasing oMhe

ratification by the voters of this stale
for the above reasons, and because of
the following further advantages
which will accrue to the taxpayers of
this slate If this amendment la passed
and becomes a part of the Constitution
of the State Of Oregon. Capable men
will much more readily run for office
when they are assured of a four-year
term In case they are elected, inas
much as a twiyear term merely
means that by tbS end of the first year
whon they are Just beglnlnng to get
acquainted with the duties of their or

re-election, which Involves consider

not consider a shorter term.
Tho passage of such an amendment
would also lessen the expenses of
election and will classify public service
under the sane practical tenure as pri

heads of departments are rated by
their ability and efficiency.
This amendment is endorsed by Ben
W. Olcott. Governor of Oregon, by
Geo. M. Hrown, Attnrney-fleneral, who
endorses It In the following words:

To the Taxpayers and Voters of The City of Pendleton:
Some misleading statements have been made regarding the
Bonds to be voted on for the purchase of a new fire truck. . Some
people are under the impression that a new truck was purchased
by the city council last spring which is not true, for when it was
discovered the city finances Mould not permit, the matter was
dropped and held over for the coming election. , .
Remember: Investment in fire apparatus is buying an asset.
No department ever has had too much apparatus: It'u there
when needed and nobody knows m hen that time will come.
