Killingswortb, one of the leading repnblicani of Multnomah county, and a member of the legislature of 1905 speaks for itself. Mr. Killingswortb wa the author of the Killingswortb bill which was the first successful at tempt in republican legislature to secure any legislation againit the railroad! daring the past 30 years: Portland, Or., Feb. 27. 1906. (Hon. Robert G. Suiith, Grants Pass, Jose phine County, Ore., My Dear Sir and Friend) Please do not think me un grateful lor not acknowledging 'by let ter sooner your great assistance in the recent railroad fight in securing for the people of the State of Oregon their liberation from "strangulation," for i no greatly appreciate your assist ance. I little dreamed that mv Bill 136 ! wonld have caused so tnncb contention and opposition, for it sorely is a jost measure and in the interest of the entire State of Oregon. Believe rre that I am more than thankful for the considerate manner in which I was personally treated by the members of the minority in the Honse, yourself the leader, who proved loyal to a man, showing conclusively to my mind that each individual member was faithfully working for the better ment and best interests of the entire state and oould. would and did stand all the railroad pressure, hence each member is justly entitled to treat credit for without your assistance Oregon would today be still under the blanket of monopolistic control. This Bill gives fait and timely no tice that Oregon will wait no longer on the management of the present railroadk to build needed develop ment lines, that the people do intend to have proper rail accommodations all over neitlected Oregon and that the bottled up conditions, existing for the past HO years in Oregon is at last ended. A most beneficial and merit orious law, and I am thankful that my name is connected witn its pass age. Mr. Smith, I feel under lasting obli-. gat ions for favors shown me. I felt indeed very lonely when my entire Multnomah delegation, 12 in number, stood up and were counted to place my bill in cold storage. This act brought to the surface all my fighting energies and with your timely and able assistance, we won out. Please do accept from me my best wishes for your happiness and lasting prosperity.

UU11..S PuCGIIT Grants Pass, Ore. Statement From Ex-Judfe Chiles Editor Courier: As politics are now the order of the day I, lise others men, would like to have a little ay. In the first place, will Bay that I regard county politics as strictly a business matter and the duty of tho citizen is to vote for the man bast fitted for the position sought. As I understand, one of the most important planks in Mr. Chaosse's platform is a reduction of taxes and at the same time to give ui improved roads. Let oi pat this in the scales and see how much it will weigh. In the first place, - anybody knowi that in financial matter the county court has a very limited jorisdiction, being confined to building roads, bridges, court houses, jails and the keeping of the poor. The larger expenses being the holding of elections, payment of officers salaries, court expenses both oircuit and magisterial, coroners in qoeit and state taxes. Over these latter items it has no control what ever, only to see that there is no superfluity connected thereto which has no warrant of law. When I was in office I did find oat that the custom of the prosecuting at. torney to charge np mileage fees to the county had no warrant of law and , refuged to pay his bills for same and made the challenge to John Jeffrey to 1 produce the law and then we would 1 pay the bills for the lame. That j challenge held good during my term of office as he nor any other ever produced it, although there has been many hundreds of dollars paid by Josephine county for this very item of mileage by prosecuting attorneys in their attendance upon justice courts. The building of roads costs money. The engineering skill of America comhined cannot build one mile with-: out it. I think in the year 18U6 the ' county coo't at the request of the grand jury entered into contract with experts to have the books of the county gone over to see if everything 1 was right. F. W. Chauss aud J. A. ; Jennings were the two tax payers that 1 put an injunction upon the contract as unnecessary expense. "I would esti mate that the whole expense in pro portion to the magnitude of a tax payer of his caliber at that time would not exceed two bits. Mr. Chausse as editor of the Obser- ' ver when the bill passed the legisla ture about three years ago to increase county officers' salaries in the aggre gate of 1000 per annum, laid that the raise was justifiable as the salaries were fixed back in the sixties. Being fixed iu the sixties is not correct. The judge 's salary was changed twice duriug his uncle Volney Col vig'i two terms from fi00 to $700 aud back again to $'100. V. Colvig ac cepted the raise but would not accept the reduction from ?(K) to JHiK), hut ontiuued to draw the 1700 salary from the time tho law making the reduc tion went into effect uutil he went out of office. Mr. Chausse is alleged to have sold his interest iu the Observer office. Well, people have their own way of thinking and there is no way to de prive them of it. Printers bills Hgaiiut the county is au item of ex pense ttiat is to be feaied as I knw from personal experience. The Aus tralian system provides that the county clerk shall have the ballots pepareil. Mr. Chausse and Clerk Goodell belonged to same political family aud he was nutting iu his hills at 2. ,10 per thousand for the old style election ballots. I insisted with Clerk (ioodell to submit it to bidders aud toward tho end of my term he consented to do so aud Jerry Nuuan bid 4'J cuts per thousand and got the job for one thus aud printed the bal lots. Putting Mr. Chausse's extreme closeness of expense of exi;erting books iu conjunction with his ex treme liberality of sentiment as editor in conutctiou with the laise iu salar ies must conclude that he is liable tn vibrate to aud fro just according to the fact of whose bull is being gored. Iu conclusion I will say to the voters of Josephiiue county, U honest with God, your neighbor aud yourself and vote for the man, in your opin ion, all qualifications considered, who will make the best public servant. Respectfully, J. M. CHILES. Grunts Pass, May 23, Hkx!.
