BLANCHARD REPLIES Answers Arncle that Ap peared in the Pioneer. TOLLS WHY HE PLOPPED Thought I'coplo Wanted Kim for Court- ty Judge Present Indications Are Just to the Contrary. rHi.NKVju.it, Oregon, Marcho, 1908. To the People of Crook County: llccaute uf nu nrticle which appeared (11 the lat coiy of the Madras Pioneer and Iwcause I with to make my oiItloti plain to the twople of the county I hae written the following article, which are the exact facta In t,be case a I ee them. Crook county I naturally divided Into thice separate part, the eastern and southern, or Mock raising dlitrlct: the wct central, or the great irrigated dl trlct, and the north central, which la primari!) devoted to grain rstaltiK. I believe that every thinking matt will agree that nothing would be more fair than that each of these dlitrlcta ahould have a representative In the next county court The Irrigated district already has Ita representative in Commissioner Ilaylcy, of I.aldlaw; the alock raising district will undoubtly be represented by Mr. Hice of Hay Creek, (as there aecma to be no opposition to him). Mow la It not just and fair to every one that the county judgeship ahould go to the great grain railing district around Madras. Immediately after I announced, my candidacy for the office of county scliool superintendent some of my friends came to me and triad to get me to withdraw from mv candidacy lor that position and announce myself a candidate for the office of county Juiyje. This I positively refused to do. Uuring the three weeks following I was importuned, by many people from nearly all pari of the county to rake the change a tated abotctstllll refused: but when It be came apparrul that the people from Lamotita, CuUer and my home precinct (Kutcher) were desirous tliat I come out for county judge. I decided to iutcitl- (Kutcher) were desirous Out I come out gate the nutter and made a three days' ment of discord into the count judgeship contest an office which Noithern Crook wished to go to Mr. Iillloj Is to say the least an in dication of bad faith. The Pioneer article Is a strong presentation of the facts In the ense, and' Mr. Hlatichard will have difficult work to disprove them. The meat of the article is condensed In the following extracts: "After announcing himself for one office, to withdraw and come out for another, not only makes It anncar that he is a 'miscellaneous candidate,' but there is an clement of bad faith Involved In the tran saction that twill and should operate against him." -' "The efforts of his friends in his behalf for superintendent of nchools has been wasted, because at rnnc ;illr. be has been encouraged to cn WOULD RAISE MONEY And 'Thus Help to Build a Railroad. MEETING At COUNTV SEAT Prineville People Will Raise. $100,000 toward a Sum to Coax a Railroad Into Central Oregon. trip through the farming country around Madraa during which time I met leas than half a dozen men who were opposed to my making the change, while almost all with whom I talked Mere very anxious that I should announce myself a candi date for the office of county judge. It was only after finding out the wishes of the people of tuy home precinct and finding that there would t 110 com missioner liom there, that I did decide to withdraw from my candidacy for county school superintendent and con sent to mav.c tue race iov county juuge. iKcaoi me a "miscellaneous' If till makes of candidate, then Plead guilty to being one, I have not a,kcd and do not intend to ask any man, who has promised his sup port to any other candidate for the office of comity judge, to support me for that office, llowever, I should expect every nun to vote for what he considers the beat interests of the community iu which lie lives. ' Aa to having "forfeited nil claim to the support o( my friends" In the Ma,d. ras country. I really cannot m:c haw I have done that, as it la only lcoauc of their asking me to make the change that I consented to do so, aa la evidenced by a numerously stalled petition in which they not only asked me to withdraw from tny candidacy far county school superintendent and consent to become a candidate for the office of county judge, but In which they pledged me their sup port for said Ul mentioned office, Aa to my platform. I lime made no promises to any one, neither lias any one ivtkcd me to do so, but if bam elected to the office of county judge, I shall, to the bestof my ability, labor to give every precinct in Crook coiiily a "square deal." Very truly yours, J, 1', niANCUARl). 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 Ulanchard's part." "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 administration. 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? , Inklings at Hst.

I woaier why) An enthusiastic mass meeting was held at Prineville last Saturdav evening to set the ball a-rnlling iu the work of building a railroad in to Central OrcAn. C. N. Ehrei of Redmond seems to be the mov ing aplrit behind this undertaking, and he was in attendance at the Prineville meeting. The plan Is for tbepcopleof Cen tral Oregon to raise a considerable sum of money and contribute it to the Portland ,x Eugene & Eastern Railroad Company on the condition that tue company extend lis line Irom Eugene up the McKenzie river aud over the Cascades to tln scction While present plans are in a rather embryonic state, it is ccnerally considered that the plans contemplate building the line over the mountains to Keomonu ana Bend with the terminus at Prine ville. Prineville people hare naturally fallen in with this plan and their men of money agree to raise $ioo, 000, or even more, in case assur ancc can be given that the line will be built. The Bulletin phoned Mr. Ehrcl at Redmond for particulars In re gard to this story, but be said that the matter was not yet far enough developed to warrant saying much about It. He stated, however, that he was working on such a project as here outlined. Redmond Items. Redmond.
