twople of the county I hae written the

thice separate part, the eastern and
southern, or Mock raising dlitrlct: the
wct central, or the great irrigated dl

primari!) devoted to grain rstaltiK.
I believe that every thinking matt will

than that each of these dlitrlcta ahould
have a representative In the next county

has Ita representative in Commissioner

The article that appeared in the
Madras Pioneer, in answer to which
the above letter has been written,
critlciied Mr. Ulauchard iu no un
certain terms for his "flop" in the
race for county office. The Pioneer
said that the change had becu vig
orously opposed by Mr. Dlauchard's
friends in that section, and main
tained that It was not only "ill-
advised but ill-timed as well." The
Pioneer points out that Mr. Dlau
chard has shown bad faith in
switching nbout for the reason that
he had usked for the county super
Intendency and was receiving the
unanimous support of that section:
and Mr. Ellis had been prevailed
upon to ruu for couuty judge only
after haviug been assured that he
would have the support of the
Madrrts section. The Pioneer as
serts that for Mr, "Blancllard to
abandon the superintendehcy an
office which Northern Crook very
much desiredand inject at! cle-
trr the race for the more attractive
office of county judge."
"That Mr. Blanchard should
now seek to intcrooe an objection
to his (Mr. Ellis') candidacy, say
intr in effect. 'You were supporting
me for county superintendent of
schools but I have decided that I
want to be judge, and want you
to transfer your support from Mr
Ellis to me,' to say the least pre
sents a most selfish attitude on Mr
"He has forfeited all claim to the
support of his friends iu this sec
tion, nnd for that situatiou he has
no one to blame but himself."
Let us examine Mrt Blanchard's
letter. His entire argument is cov
ered by two points, namely, that
Northern Crook should, he repre
sented in the county court, and that
his "flop" was due to the impor
tunities of Northern Crook friends.
He lays much stress on the argu
ment (hat each section of the coun
ty should have a representative in
the county court. It Is pertincnUo
ask how long has that been consid
ered desirable? Up to within two
vcars nco the county court was
comnosed. vear in and year out, of
men from only one section of the
county. And as far as Mr. Blan
chard's argument is concerned it is
rendered null and void by the well
known fact that Mr. tills Is a
broad-minded man and will treat
all sections of the county with fair
ness and will conduct an impartial
Furthermore, Mr. Blanchard
must be grossly misinformed about
the desire of his friends. People
returning from the Madras section
report that the voters arc incensed
nt Mr. Blanchard's vacillating pol
icy, and that be will poll but a
small vote in that section. This
sentiment was found so strong as
to be well-nigh unanimous. Jt is
the confident belief of everyone that
Mr. Blanchard has killed himself
politically by his flop. People do
not know where he will be found
by the time the primaries arrive.
In the minds of the people there
is a strong suspicion and that sus
picion Is that Mr, Blanchard's flop
was due not to the desire of fiiends
iu and about Madras but rather to
the importunities of the Prineville
politicians. These politicians have
threatened to defeat Mr. Ellis, and
Blanchard is their ready tool. That
is the suspicion that is lurking in
the minds of the voters.
Whom do the people want for
county judge a man who an
nounces himself for au office and
then sticks to that announcement,
or one who flops about, first alter
one office then after another?
