TELL THE TKVTB.
The "campaign liar" is abroad. No
man escapes his slanderous tongue.
And now he comes to the front and
confidentially informs his friends thit
Judge R, S. Strahan is not safe man
for Supreme judge. That he w largely
interested in swamp lands, both as
owner and as Attorney for the land
grabber; that he is the salaried Attor
ney of the Oregon Pacific, and is there
fore a corporation man; that he has for
a long time past and is now the Attor
ney for the Willamette valley and Cas
cade Mountain Wagon Road company.
These are the latest charges against
Judge Strahan. These charges if true
can be proven by recoid evidence.
The fact is they are not true. " We have
interviewed Judge Strahan to ascertain
the facts as they really exist, , and be
sides have examined the records of this
eotmty,j-where the principal bfflce of the
Willamette valley and Cascade Moun
tain Wagon Road is located as to that
portion of the charges relating to said
company, and we give facts as they
actually -exist, and we challenge con
tradiction. Judge Strahan is not now
aivd has never been largely or at all in
terested in swamp lands, either as own
er. Attorney or otherwise. He Wn
not now, nor has heever owned or been
interested in a foot of swamp land.
He has nevev acted as Attorney at any
time in any Bwamc land content of
anv kind, excent in the . of K. fin.

acres from the swamp land claimant
and gave them to the school fund,
Judge Strahan is not and has never
been the salaried Attorney of the Ore -
gon Pacific. He has attended to some
of the litigation the company has had,
as many- other Attorneys have done
and as all would be glad to da? Judge
Strahari is not now and has never been

about nine years ago. The fact is Hon
Gea R. Helm was the Attorney for
the company until his death, and then
Attorneys in Portland were employed
in his place who still have charge of
the business of that com pan v. So
much for these charges, and we chal-
lenee the campaizn liar to show
state of facts different from those her
in set forth. Judge Strahan is an able
lawver an unricht, conscientions man.
Heis possessed besides of alt those
quahfications so essential to a ccod
judge. He is honest and ! faithful to
trust. He is an affable, whole-
souled sentleman. He treats all alike.

toiling masses. It required no small from California for Southern Oreg
amount of nerve to come to the front
when Mr. Pennoyer did and speak a
word for free labor. He should be
remembered to the extent of a vote, at
least on election day, by every man
who swings an axe, follows a plow,
strikes hot iron, solders a tin cup, shoes
a horse, shoves a jack plane, dits a post

assumed that the amount of fencing
required to protect gardens and grain
fields form the depredations of this in
stinctire thief -and robber, involves
the ex penditure of more time and
labor annually than would piy at a
fair valuation for double the quantity
of pork resulting from bis unrestrained
ravages. The long-nosed, Link, filthy,
wayside hog is as anprofi table to fatten
as he js abominable to behold; Ilia
