the rumor is due.
Other candidates announced for the
Republican nomination are W. S.
U’Ren, of Oregon City, A. M. Craw
ford, o f Salem, Grant Dimmick, o f
Oregon City, William Carter, o f Port
land, and Gus Moser, o f Portland.
Others have been spoken of as possi
ble candidate, but as yet have not an
nounced themselves. •
It is generally admitted that none
o f the candidates now announced will
have a very general support from the
party and it looks like the primary
will be a big personal contest.
Hollis Best Candidate Proposed
Should Judge Hollis be urged to
enter the race it is admitted by many
that he would be the best man for
the job, and he has many facts in his
favor that indicate he would be a

Salem has been one o f progressive
legislation and economical adminis
tration. He is a Christian man, and
undoubtedly would uphold the moral
statutes o f the state. He is a man
o f mature mental development, and
judicial in his actions. He is at once
and a man in whom any and all could
place their utmost dependence.
I f is understood that a good deal o f
persuasion has already been applied
to the Judge, some from very prom
inent sources, but as yet he has made
no statement in regard to the matter.
However, it seems that if his many
friends can convince him that for the
good of his party and the people of
the state he enter the race, that he
would become a candidate.

the mail since the establishment o f
