JUDGE EXPRESS OPINION
OF TWO CANDIDATES
Judge John J. Jeffries o f Portland
delivered the first campaign speech
in the presidential election heard in
Estacada this year, Tuesday night at
the Liberty Theatre. The crowd was
not as large as was expected, but
apparently was enthusiastically foi
Herbert Hoover for president.
Judge Jeffries devoted most o f the
hour to the discussion o f the stand
taken by Mr. Hoover and Alfred E.
Smith on the principal issues in this
campaign. Prohibition was one of
the subjects wich has been given con
siderable thought by the speaker and
he called attention to the fact that
Mr. Hoover stood for the enforcement
of the 18th amendment while Mr.
Smith was in favor o f nullification.
Judge Jeffries did not believe that
the law would be changed if Smith
was elected, but said that he was not
in sympathy with the law, and that
he had always been a friend in New
York state to those connected with
the business. “ When you send the
bootlegger’s best friend out to catch
him, there is little chance of his be
ing caught,” the speaker stated.
Farm relief was discussed by the
Judge, who stated that Frank Lowden
and Senator McNary were satisfied
with Hoover’s stand on this question,
and as they are the recognized lead
ers o f the farm group, the farmers
o f the country should be willing to
accept their judgment in the matter.
Smith, he pointed out, admitted
that he knew nothing about what the
farmers needed, nad had no idea of
any remedy, but in his acceptance
speech stated that he would appoint
a commission to make a study o f the
problem, which, in effect was going
right back to where Governor Low
den and Senator McNary had started
sixteen or twenty years ago.
Smith’s opposition to the present)
immigrations laws was also discussed
at length. Judge Jeffries spoke in
denfense o f the Johnson law and said
that >n future the United States
should continue to allow only those
foreigners who had proven themselves
to enter and become citizens of the
United States. He said that statis
tics show that only 5 per cent o f the
criminals in the United States were
“ white” American citizens.
The records o f the two candidates
during the world war were compared,
at which time Mr. Hoover served lys
country at a salary o f $1 per year,
and wag selected by President Wilson
to one o f the greatest tasks ever cn>
trusted to any man, and that he fuN
filled the duties with honor to himself
and the nation.
The charge that has been made by
the democratic party that Hoover set
the price o f wheat during the war
as answered by a quotation from a
speech made by Woodrow Wilson, in
which Mr. Wilson had stated that
Hoover had nothing to do with the
price fixing o f wheat.
Quite a large number o f the wom
en present were enrolled in the
"Hoover for President” club o f this
