There's Style- in Every Line
QUALITY IN CLO'THES is alright. We believe in it. But
there's one thing which makes clothes stand out and that is
style. No matter how good the cloth or how well .the garment
is made if it hasn't style its value is lessened. We
offer you in Hart, Schaffner Marx clothing
bQth quality and style, designed by men who
thoroughly know how. The workmanship is
superior to the usual ready put on clothes and is
in every way equal to custom tailoring. Hart,
Schaffner Sr Marx are just about half of what
your tailor would ask for the same clothes.
Come in and look at the new fall line. The
home of Hart, Schaffner and Marx ready-to-wear clothing.

All that allB the editor of the ltein
Izor Is that he has been cornered.
ThouKh he knew the violations, of
the law were going on he refused to
raise his voice for enforcement of the
local option, law and then Just be
fore election he cries. "Prohibit on
is a -failure." I maintained that this
was inconsistency. That I told the
truth hurts and now he tries to coun
teract the influence of this charge by
two things. Flrat, ho puts up a straw
man and bravely knocks him down.
We never asked him or any other
editor to do detective work or police
work but simply to use his paper
to denounce open violation of a law
which the majority has put upon the
statute book. Until he does that we
said it was inconsistent for mm
to crv "Failure." ' -
Again he says. "What has Weber
done to help enforce law in his local
ity" Perhaps the editor will find

THE RAILROADS AND BOWERMAN

position as State Senator to prevem
the building of railroads to Centra
Oregon," they say.
Let u see how Dowernwui wleldei'
his great influence as president of
the SUito Semite to help him in his
little Job as a (temporary) corpora
tion lawyer at Condon. A delegation
of excited citizens went from. Portland
to the Legislature ut. Salem, demand
ing that the stale go into the busings
of building railroads, as a weans of
salvation from the thralldom of the
Harrimnn svstem. They wanted a con-'

At. the legislative session of 1907,
State Senator Bowerman was a mem

and chairman of the committee on re
Ttsion of laws. In these important
places he had much to do with plac

railroad commission act, to which his
opponent, Mr. West, owes his all in
the way of reputation and a liveli
hood. Did -or did not the railroads
dictate Bowerman's course?

Benjamin Mason was found dead
in his rocking chair on the porch of
his home in this city, Wednesday ev.
ening, where It was his custom to sit
after supper. His death is attribut
ed to heart trouble from which he
was a sufferer. He was about seven
ty years of age.
As usual after supper Mr. Mason
had taken his chair to the pdrch,
where he often fell asleep. His step-
! daughter, Mrs. Laura E. Bennett, had
occasion to speak to him and made
the discovery that he was dead.
An inquest was held by Justice J.
H. Jackson. Dr. T. A. Long, after
a post mortem examination ascribed
the death to heart failure, the ver
dict of the jury being to that effect.
! Mr. Mason came here from Inde
pendence, Oregon, about three weeks
ago and bought from Fred G:"een the
public water station and feed rolling
business as well as the residence
property near the plant. He resided
there with his step-daughter and her
husband, Mr. and Mrs. Bennett, the
husband operating the business. He
is survived by a wife, who lives on
a homestead near Shaniko, but the
couple have been separated for sev
eral years. Mrs. Bennett states that
her. step-father was very reticent
about the events of his life, never
mentioning relatives nor early home
associations. He was born in Cana
da. Arrangements have been made to
hold the funeral Friday afternoon.

First, then, those who claim that, the
ballot is women's right quote from
the declaration of independence that
"Taxation without representation is
tyranny." But the quotation is not
in point, for that sentiment was ut

Individual voters, male or female. It
was a declaration, of the representa
tives of the thirteen colonies that un
less these colonies could have a rep
resentative in the parliament and in
the cabinet to protect their interests
King .George should not ask us to
pay duty. It had no reference to the
casting of ballots, for men voted in
every colony, but it was a declara
tion that one government ought not
to tax another without due represent
ation. Protection for Women
In order to make it refer to wo
man's suffrage it would have to be
proven that women are not now prop
erly represented by their husbands,
fathers or brothers; that the govern

property interests, and that they do
not get value received for their
