MeoU tfer Saturday niht,
Berotri are re.iueite.1 to be preeent
Mr. Hancock's Thanks.
To the People: It is gratify
ing to me, naturally, to be chos
en by the voters of my party as
the republican candidate for sher
ft of Washington county.
hrough the medium of the coun
ty papers I desire to express my
hanks to all my friends unti
such time as I can meet them
personally which I hope will be
my pleasure very soon.
I have already commenced an
active canvass for election and
intend to visit every section and
hamlet in the county and intend
also to meet personally many
hundreds of gentlemen I was un
able to meet before the primary
The canvas for the nomination
was entirely devoid of personali
ties and, certainly, as far as the
shreivalty contest is concerned
no just cause exists for any of
the "soreness" sometimes mani
fest after an election. Both my
opponents are estimable gentle
men and their business, private
and public life has been such as
to assure every thinking man
that they would, had they been
chosen, served as ably, honestly
and conscientiously as I intend
to do. However, certain condi
tions existed, which, in the un
certainty of political campaigns,
resulted in my election. There
were three contestants and only
one could be chosen. We are all
republicans and I am assured
that both Mr. Buchanan and Mr.
Kuratli will now extend tome
the same staunch support in my
candidacy that I would have ex
tended had either been selected.
Both gentlemen deservedly pos
sess many warm and loyal friends
whom I will be proud to number
with my own, if for no other rea
son than that I am a candidate
of their party.
To the people of Washington
county I renew my pledge that I
will, if chosen sheriff at the general-election,
extend every cour
tesy compatible with the proper
discharge of the duties, to be as
economical a3 in the conduct of
my private business and to serve
that at the close of the term of
office no man can justly cite a
single official act that would cause
him regret in having voted for
my election. Respectfully,
George G. Hancock,
Death of Mrs. Carter.
Mrs. A. A. Carter died at the
residence of her sister-in-law,
Mrs. I. J. Raymond, at Gaston,
April 20, 1908. She had been a
resident of this county for more
than forty-eight years, and was
highly respected by all who knew
her. Her sisters, both well
known to earlier residents of the
county, H. C. and C. A. Ray
mond are now deceased. She
leaves one brother. Will C. Ray
mond, of Meadows, Idaho. The
following short history of her
life was written by herself some
time before her death:

GIVES CAKE 877 VOTES
114 OVER FULTON.
Greer. Hines and Meek Nominated (or Represen
tatives, Barrett for Joint Senator. Wood for
State Senator County Nominations.
The curtains have been rung
down on the primary election,
and if there are any sore spots
among the defeated candidates,
they should quickly heal and all
be friends again. The ticket
nominated last Friday is in the
main a good one, though the vote
cast for some of the candidates
was a surprise to many. Where
the largest majorities were look
ed for very small ones resulted,
and "sure winners" went down
to defeat But the people have
spoken. They have named the
ticket and as The Independent
has always held, and so holds
now, republicans should stay
manfully by their nominations,
put up the knife, and see to it
that the ticket is elected. This
is the only way to hold the party
together, for if a candidate is to
be named at the primaries only
to be slaughtered at the election,
the party will be broken up and
no candidate will care to take the
field under those conditions.
Cake's majority over Fulton is
14 in this county, . when it was
thought by prominent Fulton
men that Mr. Cake would lose
tne county. Mr. Uake had a
good majority in Washlrtfrton
county two years ago, and his
friends were confident he would
be the nominee and they stayed
ith him to the finish, and it is
gratifying to know that he is the
choice of the state by at least
,000 majority, and we believe
that nothing can prevent his elec
tion to the United States senate.
Hon. Willis C. Hawley for con
gress had no opposition, and his
vote was 1450.
Robert S. Bean, for supreme
judge, received 1399. He was
also without opposition.
For dairy and food commis
sioner Bailey wins over Reid, and
for railroad commissioner Camp
bell is nameJ. E. B. Tongue of
this city had no opposition for
prosecuting attorney and carries
the county by a vote of 1367.
For joint senator W. N. Bar
rett snows under Hammerly and
Nolan, his vote being 12oo, and
he has carried the district by at
least a majority of 600.
Dr. W. D. Wood is named as
the nominee for state senator ov
er Fisher and Haines, the latter
only getting a total of 345 votes.
wr. r isner made a splendid run
and crowded the doctor .uncom
fortably close, his vote being 505
and Dr. Wood's 741. But the
big surprise was in the vote for
representatives. R. H.Greer re
ceived 832, Dr. Charles Hines
857, Geo. W. Kelley, the only
Statement No. 1 man in the
bunch, 425, William McQuillan,
372, S. A. D. Meek, 713, Wilbur
K. Newell, 482, and T. B. Per
kins, 557. It was thought by
many that Mr. Newell had a
walk-away, and his defeaC came
as a genuine surprise.
The race for sheriff was hot
from the start' but Geo. G. Han
cock of Forest Grove was alto
gether too swift for both Buch
anan and Kuratli. But the real
fight was for the office of county
clerk and at no time had any one
of the candidates a cinch on the
nomination. W. D. Smith re
ceived a good vote in the city,
but fell down in the country pre
cincts. Mr. Godman received
a good vote in both city and coun
try, but J. W. Bnlley defeated
him by 126 votes.
For recorder Willis Ireland had
no opposition and was given a
total vote of 1484.
M. C. Case also had no opiwsi
tion and his vote was 1380.
W. M. Jackson, for county
treasurer, received 1007 votes and
his opponent H. G. King, 570.
L. C. Walker was another can
didate who had no opposition,
and consequently nothing to fear
and he rolled up a vote of 1464.
For assessor Max Crandall was
given 912, C. E. Deichman, 173,
and Geo. Wilcox 550.
E. C. Brown, with no opposi
tion for coroner, had 1459, and
for county commissioner John
McClaran received 955 and A. B.
The table on this page gives
the vote in full and the total vote
polled by all candidates. It is
official and can be relied on as
correct, E. X. Harding, C. E.
Kindt and Max Crandall working
faithfully Monday and Tuesday
to canvass the vote.
Fulton Will Vote His Ticket straight.
United States Senator Fulton
arrived in Portland Sunday night
from his Astoria home and left
Tuesday morning for Washing
ton to resume his duties. "I
have nothing to say further than
I have already announced in my
statement" explained the sena
tor. "I have been defeated and
bend my hcd to tho rcoult I
will vote as I have always voted,
