Vol. XII Maupin Southern Wasco Couuty Oregon, Thursday, Octobei 21, 1926 No. 5o IES n m NOMINATIONS CITY OFFICIALS Bi-Ennial Election to be Held After General Poll ing In November 8 NAMED FOR COUNCIL 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 office. 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. You know that R. E.

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 tbem. "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, V Cordially yours, E.

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 I .

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 voters. 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.

VOTE AGAINST TITHING BILL 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. You know that R. E. WILSON CO. brought prices down In Maupin? TRADE WITH THEM.

HOLE SULLED BY BOARD ACTION Bakeoven District to Have Own School Teacher Decision of Board PETITION TO SEPARATE 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 district 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.
