Figures available from seventeen
of tho smaller towns of Oregon show
n combined bonded Indebtedness of
?ft, 705,437. This Indebtedness In
volves an annual Interest charge of

HUGHES ON THE IIAU.OT.
The, Oregon Supreme Court has
ruled that the mime of Chnrlcs E.
Hughes must be placed upon tho pri
mary bnllot. The decision Is an in
tensely Interesting one. It enunciates
the right of the people to plnco the
nnino of any innii on tho ballot for
whom they vvIbIi to express their
choice for nomination, Irrespective
of tho desires of the Individual him
self. In other words, Hughes can't keep
off tho Oregon ballot. Ho did his
obst to prevent the use of his name.
Respecting his request tho secretnrv
of state refused to use hlu name, and
then Hughes' admirers brought limn
flee To belittle the present Governor
of that Btate that It is very doubtful
If (his last of tho notorious tribe of
Of. West now In public ofllce, will be
able to much longer succeed In his
deception. He will be one of tho al
leged Republicans, seoking offlco at
the hands of Republicans this year,
that Is Buro to receive the hearty
support of those Democratic papers
parading ns "Independent" for mer
Olcott was doomed to defeat this
veor though opposed by n man of
less high character than Chairman
Charles H. Moores, known for years
for his loyalty to the party, his high
standing among his fellowmcn and
unquestioned lltness to fill the high
olllcc to which ho aspires.

the combined municipal debt born b , ll, court sustained their prnyer,
each Individual Is $S7 !i."i. On an
uverngo each person In these towns In
inibllcnlly indebted to that amount.
With u bonded Indebtedness of
fSO.COO Including the school district
bonds anil a population of :J200. llend
hnH an average per capita debt of
only $28.00. This, contrasted with
tho nvurngo or $S7.n", of the other
municipalities listed, Is encouraging
Elsewhere In this paper The Hnl
letlu prints a list of the towns, with
their debts. Only the smaller com
munities have been solectcd. iib n
comparison of their condition with
Rend's seemed more appropriate thuu
it large cities were considered. Hut
for that matter tho average of tho
larger cltleH Is about the same ns
thoBU used here. The figures are
lrom tho Oregon Voter.
Wo go Into this mutter because
iloubtlesH before long llend will have
to face it further bond Isbuo for mu
nicipal Improvement purposes, us
well as for the Strahorn terminal I
Kites. Thus far we owe over $i'.0,00
In sewer bonds nnd $H!,fiO0 for
cliool buildings. Probably the sower
will have to be extended, and with
out doubt nuw schools must be erect
i d shortly.
It Is folly to cricnurngo municipal
expenditure Juht becnuso thu city
happens to be "well off." Hut Inas
much as such expenditure Is unavoid
able and really desirable, It Is grat
ifying to discover how well our rec
ord compaVes with that or other Ore
gon cities similarly i.ltinitod. If we
should double our bond issue llend
Hill would hnve n per capltn debt
more than it third smaller than tho
verage. Further. It must be remain
tiered that llend's population Is In
rrenhlug inpldl.v, and without doubt
will continue to grow steadily for
montlm to come, so that the ratio in
our favor Is constantly Improving.
All In nil, we lmvo no cnuso to bo
grludge tho approaching necessity
for further bond lESiies. It Is n nor
nml, necessary and buslnesrt like
method or city building, and provid
ed It be not overdone, and that full
vhIuo Ih received for expenditure of
tho borrowed money, there Is no
muyp for protest.
In this direction, ns In many others
Uend Is notably sound mid promising.
Let us not be niggardly In building
vip a bigger mid n better city, but
while wo do It let lis remember that
So Hitch voters of Oregon ns desire
may express their preference for
Hughes. For our part, wo believe
that ho will' carry the stote over
whelmingly. It Is a good thing too.
that this legitimate voicing of pop
ular opinion enn be registered. It
will permit real expression of tho
will of tho people, at least so far ns
this stnto Is concerned, In relation to
tho forthcoming convention.
Presumably other states may fol
low tho example set by Oregon.
Hughes supporters elsewhere may
now force the placing of his name up
on tho ballot, Irrespective of his de
sires. If so, It means a blggor nnd
more popularly backed HugheB sentl.
n'vnt at Chicago thnn could other
wise lio possible for a goodly body
of the voting public will hnve spoken
officially. Just as they hnve been
speaking Individually for months
imt. , '
With Hughes sentiment, crystnllzed
upon the ballots even in a fow stntcs,
anil hint despite his efforts to keep
his nnnio opt of It, and with Hughes
popularity undeniably widespread,
the likelihood of tho Judge's nomliiai
t'on seems to Increase. Should
Hughes bo nominated, it Ih almost
liiconcelvnbln that n mnn would
tenaciously refuse to becnino n can
didate for president of the United
States, when it Is universally admit
ted that threo words of ncceptnnco
would settle tho matter beyond per-
adventure. And tho silent Judgo al
ready has done that. '
PRAISE FOR SMITH.
"Wesley O. Smith of Klamath Falls
Is a candidate for Joint representative
on the republican ticket for the 21st
district, comprising Crook, Jefferson.

Mr. Smith represented this district
in tho last legislature when many
measures affecting Eastern Oregon
wore up nnd wo can truthfully soy
that ho was alwuvs nlort to the best
Interests of his district. The Abert
