Bi-Ennial Election to be
Held After General Poll
ing In November
F. C. Butler and Bates Shattuck to
Make Run for Mayoralty Job
Others Nominated
A new ict of city official! U to be
chosen this full. On Monday night
a caucus was hold in the lower hall
of the Odd Fcllowt building and
nominations mude for mayor, re
city marshal.
C. W. Semmes presided as chair
man and F. 0. Stuart as clerk. It
was decided to make the nominations
from the top down, and beginning
tho names of F. C. Butler and Bates
Shattuck, pronent incumbent, were
nominated to make the run for
governor of Maupin. Tho naming
of men to run for council came
next and L. C. Hcnncghan, R. E.
Richmond, James Chalmers, E. V.
Doty, Geo. TilloUon, C. W. Scmmes,
J. C, Pratt and F. D. Stuart were
placed in nomination. Henmeghan
Chalmers and Doty are members of
the present council.
For recorder there was btit one
nomination, that being J. H. Wood
cock, and ho was virtually givn the
G forgo McDonald received the
unanimous vote of the caucus- as
nominee for the office of city
treasurer. Of course George will be
elected, as there will bo no opp-wl-tion
to his candidacy.
The office of city marshal in
sulted in Gus Dcrthick, Joe Kram tr
and Edw. Scmmes being placed in
nomination. Gus is acting as mar
shal at the present time; Kramer
had the office before the appoint
ment of Dcrthick, resigning for
some reason not generally known.
Semmes is a deputy sheriff under
Sheriff Chrismnn and one of the
publishers of The Maupin Times.
As but six councilmen are to be
chosen two of the nominees are in
for defeat It is not expected there
will be much campaigning, for all
the nominees are friends and it is
proposed that the voters choose who
they desire for the office without
undue Influence being injected Into
the matter.
For the offico of recorder there
may be some opposition to Mr.
Woodcock. He has stated that he
wanted the office and if elected
would be able to send water state
ments with his light bills This would
be a good thing, for the practice
heretofore has been for water users
to go to the recorder's office and
pay water rent there No notices
have been sent out, and the result
has been that several users have had
to pay a penalty for having water
turned on after it had been shut off
by the marshal for non-payment of
dues By sending out notices each
month patrons of the water depart
ment would be wined up regarding
what they owed the city for water,
then if they did not pay up vrould
have no kick coming In case their
water was shut off. It is possible one
or more of our citizens will file for
the recorder's job, as many seem
averse to walking across the river
to pay their water rent.

Warden Appeals To
Oregon Sportsmen
Aikt Oppotitoa to Proposed 10
Tithing MeasureWould
Cat Off Hatcheries
State Game Warden E. F. Averlll
has insuod an appeal to voters to
to take 10 of hunting and fishing
work against the proposed measure
to take 10 Ve of hunting and fishing
license fees from the game fund and
place it in the general fund of the
state. ' In his letter Mr. Averlll says:
"Do you want the hatchery or
hatcheries In your section of the
state abandoned? Do you want to
have the work of the state game
farms curtailed and the game patrol
service restricted? If you do not,
vote 827 No when you go Into the
booth on November 2. That vote
will kill the Tithing bill which will
take between $36,000 and $40,000
from the game protection fund every
year and make necessary the aban
donment of five or six of our trout
hatcheries. Yours may be among
"You, as a sportsman and a tax
payer, have contributed your regu
lar portion of the tax expenses of
the state. In addition to that you
have purchased a fishing license, a
hunting license, or maybe both, and
when you did so it was with the
promise that this money would be
used In making it possible for you
to hunt and to fish. It is morally
wrong for the state or anyone else
to divert part of this money into the
general fund.
"The sportsmen of this state with
their license fee are maintaining
the greatest asset the state of Ore
gon has it wild life. They are do
ing this cheerfully, although thou
sands of people who neither fish nor
hunt profit either directly or Indi
rectly because of the existence of
this resource.
"One half of all the game fines
goes to the county treasuries to the
extent of. approximately ,, $10,000
each year. This more than pays for
the cost of the trial of all game
cases, because ninety per cent of
them are obtained on pleas of guilty.
Very few cases ever go to trial.
"If you really desire to defeat
this as you certainly should, kindly
. e to it that everyone with whom
voi come in contact with is ac- 1
quanted with the unfairness of this
Tith ing bill and ask them to vote No.
327 .Vo,
Cordially yours,

State Game Warden.

I Steiwer's Stand . Regarding Oregon
in ' m ;
"One of the great subjects confronting Oregon
and the West is that of relief for Agriculture. In
order that you may know that it is not presumptious
for me to discuss this subject, I will begin by saying
that it is one in which I have long been interested.
I was born, raised and partially educated on a farm
in Oregon. Since I have lived in Pendleton and have
engaged in a substantial way in raising wheat. I
have had some experience in the live-stock industry.
As an attorney many fanners and live-stock men
are numbered among my clients. I aided in the or
ganization of the Oregon Co-Operative Hay Grow
ers. Upon behalf of this Association I conducted a
fight for lower rates on hay from Eastern Oregon
to the diary sections on the coast. The
greatest problem is that of marketng the crops.
Oregon and the whole nation must realize that this
problem is real and not fancied. In the case of
wheat and other products of this state the domestic
price is vitally effected by foreign market condi
tions, and is largely governed by the price paid by
outsiders for the export surplus. ,
In a platform statement which I published early
in the year I committed myself a3 follows: "'
"I stand for justice to the farming industry. Un
less the farmers can produce and market their pro
ducts profitably all branches of society must suffer.
I will work for the legislation to aid in the orderly
marketing of exportable surplus and will give every
assistance to the constructive efforts now being put
forth to balance and stabilize agricultural produc
tion and sale."
I have consulted with Senator McNary, who will
be chairman of the committee on Agriculture and
will cooperate with him in bringing about a solution
of agricultural problems. ' We must not fal
ture in our demand for justice and equality for the
farming industry. We will not do justice to the
farmer if we content ourselves merely to make leg
islative provision for disposing of the exportable
surplus. This relief is important, but it is equally
important that we. improve our means of transpor
tation and guarantee for all time an adequate ship
ping service from the Columbia and other ports of
this state. Our great markets are not found at home
our products must find free movement and cheap
transportation to points without the state.
Oregon will go forward as we are entitled to go
forward until the whole state recognizes this fact.
Port development and the improvement of shipping
facilities are just as important to the producer who
lives far from the port as it is to those engaged in
shipping. We must not concede a divine right in
favor of ports of neighboring states to enjoy ship
ping service superior to the service furnished from
Oregon ports. Fast, cheap tranportation and ade
quate service will develop our commerce. These
things will do more they will bring profit to our
producers and lighten the burden which agriculture
is bearing. For these reasons I have committed my
self to increase Federal support in the development
of Oregon rivers and the Columbia and all coastal
harbors, and I have specifically declared for . an
American merchant marine. I will support any
reasonable plan to maintain an American merchant
marine in foreign trade.
Another practical relief to Agriculture and to all
other industry is reduction in the cost of Govern
ment, w ith a conseguent lowering of taxes. I want
now to reiterate the declarations which I made in
the primary campaign in behalf of the reduction of
the tax burden. The only way to bring about this is
by reducing the expence

Charles A. Howard
For State School Supt.
One of Oregon's Loading Educators
Almost Certain of Election t
tho School Portfolio
Republican voters of Oregon will
give a unanimous vote of indoorse-
j ment to the candidacy of Charles A.
I Howard, party nominee for state
' school superintendent, according to
reports coming to the state head
quarters. Enthusiasm for the man
and his high qualifications for the
' office he seeks is general among the
Howard is thoroughly fitted for
the portfolio of Oregon's education
al head. He is a business executive
and a student of law as well as an
educator of wide experience He is
trained for the position to which he
will unquestionably be elected.
For the past 19 years Howard has
been identified with the public
schools of Oregon He is alert and
forceful with a most pleasing per
sonality and wherever he appears he
at once makes warm friends. The
Bchool people of the state have given
him their confidence without reserve
or regret
They elected him president of the
'state association in 1922 and he was
made a director of the National Edu
cational association in 1925. For the
past six years he has been superin
tendent of the Marshfield schools.
Howard worked his way through
college in Kansas, coming to Oregon
soon after his graduation He took
advanced work at O. A. C, U. of 0.,
Stanford and California University.
He has been the head of educational
institutions in various Oregon com
munities and has invariably had the
full support of the people he has
served. Careful organization of
school finances has been an out
standing feature of his work. '
Howard is in close touch with Ore
gon's educational needs. He has
made a thorouh study of modern
methods of pedagogy and his elec
tion will unquestionably bring about
higher standards for Oregon's pub
lic schools and a forward step for
people of the state.

Hunters and Fishermen Should Safe
Guard Their Outing Privileges
Should the so-called Tithing bill as
referred to the voters of Oregon be
c8me a law it will necessitate the
closing of at least five trout hatch
eries and possibly one game farm of
the State Game commission. It may
be the hatchery in your county. Do
you want this done?
All moneys received by the Game
commission ere derived from license
fees and fines. The state does not
appropriate one cent to the Game
commission. Why should ten per
cent of moneys contributed by
sportsmen for a definite purpose,
under promise that . these funds
would be expended for that purpose,
be diverted to some other purpose?
It is double taxation on sports
men. It is unfair. It is morally and
legally wrong. Vote X-327 No.

Stockmen's Association Meeting.
The annual meeting of the Wasco
County Stockmen's association will
be held at Tygh Valley on Saturday,
October SO ,so say the announsements
sent to members by J. H, Fitzpatrick,
secretary of the association. Much
busness of interest to stockmen is to
come before the meeting, therefore
all members arc urged to be present.
Rains Prore Beneficial.
The rains of last week have had
the effect of giving late sown grain a
good start. Much of that sown
earlier has come up and the rains will
give it an impetus that will insure a
good stand before the real hard
frosts come.
Bakeoven District to Have
Own School Teacher
Decision of Board
Matter Not Wholly Educational, But
Savora of Effort to Reduce
School Taxes. .,
v A called school meeting was held
Tuesday evening for the purpose of
taking some action regarding estab-
iisning a scnooi teacner in the r lana
gan district and furnishing transpor
tation for children of one settrel in
that district to the Maupin school. '
Some time ago the school board
members surveyed conditions in that
locality and decided to furnish the
transportation asked for. Later the
rancher, Mr. Ashley, circulated a pe
tition seeking seggregation from this
district. Nearly every property own
er on the top of Bakeoven signed the
paper and it has been filed with the
county superintendent.
On Wednesday evening another
meeting was held. At that time Mr.
Ashley appeared and seemed satis
fied with the promise of the hoard to
supply a teacher so that his children
might have school This is asit should
be. But before the meeting adjourn
ed a new element was injected into
the proceeding. Mr. Ashley, while
seemingly satisfied with the teacher
provision asked that he paid trans
portation fees. As he lives about one
and one-half miles from the school
house, his children, under the school
law, must be hauled to the school.
It was decided that if the Bakeoven
rancher will waive transportation
charges a teacher will be provided
for his children, 5 ?n number. There
are no other pupils to attend that
school so he will be the sole benefic
ay under the agreement
, During the discussion at the last
meeting it transpired that certain
large ranch owners were back of the
whole mess. It came out that they
were wiling to obliterate the railroad
from the proposed district, and that
corporation pays some money toward
the school fund. But the gist of the
whole matter, it was shown, was to
break away from District No 84 and
form a new district If that were
done the heavy property owners in
that locality would be absolved from
contributing to the bonded school in
debtedness, throwing that burden on
the balance of the district
We do not believe the scheme will
hatch as it is expected to do by its
proponents. A remonstrance will be
circulated and when this has been
signed and certified to the boundary
board of the county, we are satisfied
that body will realize the injustice
of a separation and refuse to recog
nize the formation of a new school
It is admitted by all that pupils
of school age should be given all the
educational benefits possible, but
when ulterior motives actuate a pro
posal to separate a school district, it
is then that self preservation really
becomes the first law of nature.
