Is very much pleased with his pros

not held a public meeting nor spent
any active time In his home county,
Multnomah, where the heavy vote Is,
but from this time on be will devote
himself largely to rounding up his

Mr. Huston has lived in Multnomah
COSBty for twelve years, ami feels
that he Is well enough known to be
able to carry bis home county with
little work, but I xpects to carry
it by 10,000 votes May 17. During
the last year, perhaps fifteen to
twenty thousand voters have located
in MUltnomah County, having round
employment In the shipyards, Many
Of these are eiitlrelv unfumlllar with

only need to be shown Senator Hus

see the wisdom Of voting for him in
the Primaries.
Senator Huston begad bis work In
Oregon and Washington County, and
friends living at lllllshoro and Forest
Crovo say that be will carry Wash

And speaking about politics. Senator
Huston is making his campaign first

reverently thank heaven that at any

Thank Heaven that our sons and bro

Words count for little at this time
and for nothing whatever except In

their bodies for their soul s desire.
LOl B0 one pity them, whatever their
fate, for they have seen the mighty
days ami have risen level to the need
of the mighty days.. And let no one
pity the wives and mothers and fatb
ers, whose husbands and lovers and
sons now face death in battle for the
mightest of all high causes. .
Our hearts are wrung with sorrow
and anxiety, but our beads are held
aloft with pride. It Is a terrible
thing that our loved ones should face
the groat danger, but It would be a
far more terrible thing. If, whatever
the danger they were not treading
the hard pnth of duty and honor.
The circulating of extravagant
rumors and wild tales of victory Is
harmful to the Interests of this noun
try In the present struggle as the
spreading or adverse reports, Re
oetitlv the report was flashed from
Otto end of the- country to the other
of t lu great allied victory on the
western front, in many parts of the
country people went fairly wild wltli
joy, only to lie cast Into correspond
ing depths of dejection on learning
that the report was unrounded.
our pi ople should give ear to
no reports that do not come from a
reliable source. Telegraphic news
lit the papers, from reputable now
agencies, can be relied unoii as be
ing comet, or approximately so.
The metropolitan d J lie a as a rule
have reliable correspond! tits
on the front, and their reports also
can be received as truth. Hut re
