the school system of Oregon and of

during the past year he has carried
on the work successfully. By re

FOR THE SMALL MAN
While most of the candidates for
the office of governor are tied up
wiht big- bu sines;, it remains for
Charles Unit to declare himself fa
vorabla to the small dealer. He came
up from the ranks of such and re-
tamn a warm
spot in his heart
for tbos who art
endeavoring to eko
out a living i and

dreat Mr. Hall de
dared himself as
favoring giving the
small man a larger
CharU Hall cnance, lie show
ed how the amall dealer's business
was taxed on a parity with that of
the mercantile kings and said he
would, if nominated, do his to
equalize taxation that the small man
would not be compelled to bear the
brunt of the burden.
Mr. Ilull told how he at one time
rnnHiirtpd a small drug store and
also of the many troubles encounter-1
ed in that business. He recited ex
periences in the telephone business
as well a in other line and through
out his address showed a liking for
those who are confronted with dif
ficulties contingent upon small busi
Mr. Hall has been accused of hav
ing been a member of the "yellow
ticket" bunch of politicians who
soueht office after the regular ticket
of a few years agone had been nomi

death knell as a political power in
Oregon rung. Corbett, Norblad and
others received the support of that
element during that campaign, yet
nothing has been said against thsm
or. that account so far this cam-
ruizn. The fact is that other canoi-
oate are afraid of the popularity of
Mr. Hall nnd reimmber that he was
defeated by but 621 votes at the
We expect Mr. Hall to carry
Eastern Oregon as well as his home
section. He is popular in soutn-
western Oregon and with the many
candidates in the field will split the
vote of the bigger districts and win
the nomination by a large plurality.
George Chamberlain has proven
himself as county commissioner. He
took bold of the work as an appointee
of the county court and has been
busy as the proverbial ant since his
commissionership began. He has
the bet interests of the county at
heart, knows the needs of the coun
ty, is an expert in the . matter of
roads and watches with alertness all
phases of the county's business
whereby money may be raved. Be
ing a heavy taxpayer himself it is
only natural to believe he works for
the lowest possible tax rate, and
when that is done all taxpayers are
George Chamberlain is a good
man to keep in office. He knows the
ropes and will continue to work for
the greatest good for the greatest
number ;o long as he is a member
of the county court. Keep him
there and you will be assisting in re
ducing the county's indebtedness and
at the same time providing the court
