Kelly's candidacy it may be mention
ed that he was one of the men who
advocated the retention of Judge Ad
kisson In office. Ilia letter in aup.
port of such advocacy should put
him out of the running, for if he
upported Adklsson's attitude , it
naturally follows that he, too, would
uae the same tactics as wore charged
against the recalled man.
The appointment of a man to fill
the unexpired term of Adkiiwon is
up to the governor. We believe a
man from this end of the county
should receive the plum. There are
aeveral men competent to fill the
position, any one of whom would
give the taxpayers square deal, and
each living: in the south end of the
county. At the recent election near

votes and confidence on the part of
the American people, Herbert
Hoover, with his running made,
Charles Curtis, have been elected as
president and vice-president of the
United States. The elector college
will ca t 444 vote for Hoover and
Curtis, while Alfred Smith, the
democratic candidate, will receive
but 87 votes.
The recent campaign waa the most
hotly contested one ever carried in
this country. There were no out-
standing Issues to be considered, the
chief matters discussed being farm
reiicr and a possible democratic re
vision of the tariff. Smith's anti-
prohibition stand caused millions of
women to take a stand asrainst his
candidacy and election, and it was
their votes that increased the lead
of the republican candidates.
Hoover and Curtis carried 40 of
the 48 states of the Union. Smith,
accordng to latest tabulations, car
ricl six of the solid south states and
two, Massachusetts and Rhode
Island, of the eastern states.
Hoover's popular lead is said to be
better than five million votes. Can.

OREGON TAXES ARE HIGHER
Utility Valuation Up While Other
Only public utility valuations in
Oregon as fixed" by the state tax
commission will save the state this
year from a decrease in its total
assessed property valuation, ac
cording to figures in the office of
the state tax commission.
Twenty-eight counties that have
reported out of the
branch men at Detroit and unon
its completion ia ftiven a rieoroua
examination. This examination in
cludes many points about' the car
which might be considered essential,
from the service man's viewpoint.
However, the Ford company is re
quiring complete knowledge of the
car on the part of every dealer's ser
vice men. Failure to make a Daisine-
grade means that the man has to
take the entire course again. If he
fails a xecond time, he is sent back
to the dealers with the suggestion
that he is not considered Qualified to
give Ford service; whereupon, the
dealer sends anrother man for the
next training school secsion.
This requirement for trained ser
vice men extends to evry Ford dealer
