hope they will locate in this com

retained from a recent visit to their
mine near Mt Baldy. This mine as
says some of the finest ore to be
found in the district. Mr'. Thorn pson
is a square man to deal with. He is at
present sounding the mortar bnt
being an elderly gentleman and of
limited means he is nnable to develop
his mine. We believe if the mine
were properly opened and equipped it
would prove another Greenback. The
moneyed men of the county ihonld
investigate it. Dolly Gray.

The following letter written by W.
M. 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. Yours most ttulv,

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.
