Tht race for tht scat in congress
from the second Eastern Oregon dis
trict, recently vacated by N. J. 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

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.

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

those republican, who cast their bal

and the district, swill pretty nearly o
solid for Butter.

candidates dropping out before elec

Hal Hots Meeting With Success In
Race for Secretary of
Stale's Job
Clean Out Court
House For Good
While national politics and local is-
contlnue to occupy the major
portion of the voters' attention, the
supreme court investigation has
somewhat taken the speculative mind
off the eastern Oregon congressional
fight and transferred its activities
to state affairs. '
The race for the nomination as
secretary of state has definitely nar
rowed down to T. B. Handley, Mult
nomah county lawyer, and Hal
Hoss, former secretary to the gov
ernor and for maany years prom
inent in newspaper work.
Hor moved into Portland last
week and opened headquarters in
the old Shrine rooms at the Im
perial Hotel, and commenced im
mediately on an active campaign.
He has spoken before several wo
men's organizations and ' political
meetings, and is being " endorsed

cies and individuals Interested in

ing the funds of one district and ap
plying them to another, a practice
which has prevailed heretofore. 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.
Voter, will make no mistake by
casting their votes for George W.
Mallatt at the coming primaries. He
will be a strong contender for the
right and will do what he can to
ameliorate present assessment con
ditions. A vote for him will be a vote
against existing conditions, and will
be for the. good of the whole coun
ty. Place an X next to his name and
by so doing make sure you are voting
to better yourselves..
