Sin- 'nott, is probably the most interest ing and hectic of any ever held in this part of the state. At present there art seven avoved candidates seeking the- office. Among these are men who have here tofore been unheard of, politically or otherwise, except in their home communities. They all may have qualifications for the position they seek, but according to word coming from cities whose favorite sons have thrown their hats into the ring, there ig room for argument on that point Without mentioning any names in narf lnla t Via man tvVtn . r.

Palm iter, master of the state grange, Palmiter is a republican, and for a time did not know just what to do. According to those who claim to know he did not actually announce himself until Pierce had come to Hood River to talk' the mat ter over with him. The Butler supporters see in this an ulterior motive.

George Mallatt, who is running for tht nomination for commissioner in the Third district of Wasco coun ty, is one rancher who has . madt good. Only a few years back he was working for wages. Today be is owner of hundreds of farm land and is farming in a manner which brings him good returns. He is president of the Farmers Elevator company of Shaniko and has held that position from the time the company was or ganized. The ranchers of Shanik'q and Antelope districts were a unit in demanding that he make a campaign for the office and it was only after much thought that he consented to accede to their wishes. .Mr. Mallatt is as much concerned in the matter of taxation as any man in this county, and if he is elected crat is out to assist a republican I a certain district, there is apparently u the board will use hi, utmost en- cne of the proverbial "niggers in laughing behind their hands at the "woodpiie The Eutler men 8ay York.

The total taxes levied against the railroad's property In Waaco county amounted to $114,768.68, distributed as follows: Schools taxes, $48,090, 00; road taxes,' $37,611.07; county general fund, $16,717.27 city taxes, $5,770.75; state general fund, $3, 974.91; World War Veterans state fund, $11,401.33; cocunty library fund, $1,079.40 and state military fund, $123.95. J. W. Morrow, the railroad's general tax agent, stated. 1 Pierce knows he can't beat Butler in November. Butler Strong On this point even some of the other candidates are not without doubt Butler is the Wrongest can didate in the field when the who'.c district is considered. Each of the other candidates will poll a good com plimentary vote in the various com munities, but it will take a lot of votes all over the district to decide the winner. In thi. race Butler has the advantage, as his record in state politics in one which all other candi dates envy. Not a county out of the 18 will fail to recognize Butler, and those republican, who cast their bal lots for the best intererts of the party and the district, swill pretty nearly o solid for Butter. Some prognosticated predict that the race will narrow down, .with some candidates dropping out before elec tion day. At any rate tltere will be enough candidates to still make the race one of the most interesting in many years. .

As a member of the county court he will pot be a party to trades and will work his hardest to the end that one member shall not dominate' the ac tions of the court. . Mr. Mallatt is courageous in that after he has studied a question and arrived at a decision he will not be swerved from his line of reasopiing by other than an unanswerable argu ment, and when he knows he is right will maintain his stand against all opposition. A8 a fanner his sympa thies are with his class, and all who make their living from the soil will be given a square deal in every in stance, for he considers that fact that when the farmer is attacked tht whole country suffers.
