Hate . J. T. TAYLOR.
Treasurer of Joaehpine Connty, Ore
April 6, 1908.
Steel for Treasurer.
Republican voters of Oregon are re
apectfolly requested to consider the fol
lowing: The State Treaaurerthip
contest has practically resolved . itself
into straggle for the control of state
money by the banking interests, as
against the best int 'rests of the people.
Geo. A. Steel is not a banker, nor is
be allied with any banking institution.
He is not, however, antagonistic to
banks, for he recognizes their import
ance and necessity as depostrles for
aoy surplus of state funds that might
accrue. When financially sound, he
would favor their use for such pur
poses. As state treasurer be will favor
no special Interest or section, but treat
all snotinng and all interests equitably
and fairly.
Mr. Steel has conducted a clean cam
paign, devoid of trickery, "lundsling
iug" and personalities. He haa con
fidence in the republicans of Oregon,
and does not beheve that they will be
deceived by any false rumors or re
jxirts that may be promulgated to cause
his defeat at the primaries on Aprif20.
Forty years residence in Oregon and
prominent identity with its leading
interests during that time justifies Mr.
Steel in seeking the support of the peo
ple. His record is clean ; his life an
open book, easily road by all.
If you favor Geo. A. Steel's candi
dacy, speak to your friends iu his be
half, and accept, in advance, his
thanks for your efforts, and rest as-'
aured if elected, he will safeguard the
state's iuterests with absolute fidelity.
Let voters note the following for it
is important :
Mr. Steel was formerly a leading
business man and a capitalist of Port
land and he wai at the heai of the
company that built the first long dis
tance electric railroad in Oregon, the
line between Portland and Oregon
City. Before'the road oould be pot cn
a paying basis the hard times of 1004
came aud Mr. Steel's property was
swept away, he not being up in the
dark ways of modern corporation finan
ciering. Out of the wreck Mr. Steel
saved enough to buy a small fruit farm
in Clackamas county, on which he has
since resided.
