THE COUNTY JUDGESHIP.
The county political campaign is
Bearing its end, and there baa been
bat little "spleen" displayed except
on the part of F. W. Chausse. Chausse
baa not dared attack the character or
reputation of his opponent, Stephen
Jewell, bnt has oonBned bis attacks
to Judge Booth and J. 1. Logan. Let
ns foi a moment consider his motives
for bis unseemly conduct
Chausse, while interested In the
Observer uaed every Influence to con
trol the oounty printing, and fur pub
lishing the delinquent tax list, which
he padded to the eitreme, presented
his bill for $156, which the county
court cut to !i8, and Chausse lias an
action pending In the circuit court for
the remainder, for which he has
offered to accept r0. This action was
not tried at the Inst term for the
reason Chnnsse secnred hit written
contract therefor and has failed to re
turn it. Channso justifies his charges
on tlin ground that it comes out of the
pnor delinquent tux payer ami not
out of the county. Voters hhonld
carefully consider this point before
casting their ballot for county judge.
Four years ago ChauMsc, through
bis paper attacked the moral character
of Judge liooth, and bus since ex
hibited a bitter feeling toward him
and his friends anil relatives, and ad
mits this was caused because ChaiiBse
failed to secure all the Rosoburg
land office printing. These are but
nine of the motives Chausse hits hud
for his attacks upou Judge liooth.
Let us examine some of the past
acts of ChausNu. Whoa Judge Chiles
succeeded Judge Colvig, the connty
court employed exports to examine the
connty records and acts of the county
court Chausse came to the front and
enjoined the county court from such
act and seonred a decree forever en
joining the court and its successors
. from such act, and thereby preveutud
the public from knowing any facts
the examination would have disclosed
The papers and decree are of record
except the coflipaint, which l miss
4ng, but the receipt bonks show
Channel's attoreny took it from the
records. Many voters would like to
examine this complaint.
For years Chaukse conducted the
ObNerver, during which time he had
no complaint against grafting, ugniuHt
intern poranoo, gamblug, or other pub
lic and moral wrongs; when be
severed his connection from the Ob
server he suddenly Witine a would-be
reformer aimultnncoiiHlv with his de
sire to bu county judge. "Voter" in
the Courier of hint week asked Chausse
if be profit tod by gambling , in drains
1'hhh, which he now pretends tounnoi,
but bis silence wax bis answer, These
are a few of the past acts of CImusho.
Judge liooth has a wide acquaint
ance over I he county and state, and
needs no vindication agaiuts insinua
tions of Chausse.
Stephen Jewell lias lived in this
county many years, ami no word has
been uttered against his ability, moral
worth, or integrty; nor has he ma
ligned the reputation of others.
Voters, a solemn duty confront you
in voting for county judge. After
a careful consideration of, tlrsl, the
interests of ti e taxpayers, and second
the worth and fitness of the candidates,
you will cast your vote for the one
that appeals to your better judgment
as the most worthy.
In the present campaign there is one
candidate at b list whose miuil is se
rene when he contemplates the com
ing election. S. F. Cheshire, the pres
ent count y clerk and candidate for
re-election, is having a walk-over of
very unusual smoothness. No candi
dates appeared against. " 1 1 i m in the
priniario-i nod his only opponent in the

Through one of thoFe nnaccountahle
typographical errors that occur from
time to time in printing offices despite
the most careful attention, and which
are the counterpart of errros and ac
cidents that take place in the work of
all business men, befell the Courier
office last week. In the announcement
of L. L. Jewell republican nominee for
representative, tn the paragraph stat
ing his position on the repeal of the
unfair law requiring a liouse of a
fisherman to tell fish the dropping oat
of the words "for the sale" rendered?
the sentence so ainbigious as to destroy
its meaning. The missing words have
beeu replaced and the paragraph reads
in this edition of the Courier as i
should. Mr. Jewell holds that as the
state pays oot money for the encour
agement and protection of other indus
tries the produots of which are mar
keted and no license fee demanded that
the fish industry that adds more than
(1,000,000 to the wealth of Oregon,
should have noextra burdens placed up
on it. Mr. Jewell is one of the leading
business men of Grants Pass and a
well posted man on all topics and thor
oughly conversant with need's of Jose
phine county and if elected to the leg
islature will make one of the moat
capable representative that the county
has ever had.

GRANTS PASS OBSERVES
Well Attended Exercises Are Held
and No Boisterous Events
Mar the Occasion.
Decoration Day was observed in
Grant Pass with an interest greater
than is usual in many towns the size
of this place. All business bad ceased
by noon and there was a general dis
position to observe the day in its true
spirit and there were no publio game
or sports nor boisterous conduct to
mar the solemnity of the occasion.
The graves of the 42 deceaied soldiers
in the four cemeteries about the city
were decorated doring the forenoon
with flags and flower by committee
representing the G. A. R. and the
Relief Corps, and there was a general
observance of the day for the publio in
placing flower on the graves of de
parted relative and friend.
The public exercises were at 2 o'clock
in the afternoon in the opera honse
and it was filled even to standing room
by an appreciative audience. Prompt

FILL A BERRY BOX
Raised By an Applegate Grower
Finds Fruit Raising
R. F. Lew man was in Grants Pass
Saturday from his farm on the Apple
gate a mile above Provolt bringing
strawberries for the local market.
Mr. Lewman bronght a sample box of
berries to the Courier office that
would have been medal . winners at
any fair. The berrie were of the
Sixteen-to-One variety, a name that
was not given to tbem as a reference
to silver, bnt to their great size.
These strawberries grow so large that
of the average of tbem it takes but IB
to fill a box, hence their name.
These strawberries are a new
variety to thi seotioo. Mr. Lew
man being the first to plant them he
setting out nearly an acre last year.
The plants made a good growth last
year and bo e a few berries, while
this Spring they are loaded. Mr.
Lewman stated that he had fonnd
them the best all purpose berry that
he lias yet grown. They are two
week earlier than any of the other i
varieties grown here, and this Spring
Mr. and Mrs. Lewman had straw ber-,
ries for dinner on the last Sunday in
April, and since then Mr. Lewman
has been bringing berries in consider- ,
able quantities to the Grants Pass
maiket and they are so superior in j
Bize, shaie, color and quality that
they bring the top price and he could
not supply the demand. The Sixteen-'
to-One is a large terry of uniform size,
almost round and very even in shape j
and colors perfectly a bright red. It '
has a fine flavor and is both a good
table and a canning berry.
Mr. Lewman was lormerly fireman ;
on tbe Grants Pass division of the
Southern Pacific and getting married,
as all young men should, bis wife
exacted a promise of him that he I
would quit railroading as the work was
too dangerous to meet her approval, j
Being an educated, energetic young
man and having a liking for fruit I
raising be bought a 4C-acre farm on j
the Applegate three years ago. As !
this tract is largely rich alluvial land
better for alfalfa tbau for fruit, Mr.
Lewman bought au adjoining 1 HO
acres this Spring, that is largely hill
land and well suited for fruit. A
large part of his new purchase is a
d'lep red clay soil, the kind that has
been proveu to be best adapted for '
grapes in Rogue River Valley, and
this he will put iu a vineyard. He
will raise his own vines and this
Spring he rooted tiOOO cuttings, of
about equal number of Tokay. Rose of
Peru and Mission ' varieties. Mr.
Lewman proposes to add to his vine- :
yard from year to year until he lias '
40 acres cr more to grapes for he has
become convinced that there is a large
profit in that industry when properly
bundled and the vineyard is on suit
able soil and the location in where
transportation can be had readily to
market. Mr. Lewman's firm is HI
miles from Grants Pass, which will
be his shipping and marketing point,
but he feels certain that by the
time his vineyard is in full bearing
that the railroad from Grants Pass up
Applegate Valley will lie built and
then he will have a convenient shiu
ping place. Mr. Lewman will hlso
plant a large cherry orchard as he bus
some land well adapted to that fruit
for he thiuks that cherries are next to
grapes as a money maker.
To the voters of Josephine county:
In coming before the publio as a
candidate for the office of county
treasurer the question has beeu asked
whether I am still identified with the
Grants Puss Hulking .- Trust Co.,
and whether I will again take my old
position when physically able.
In replying to these inquiries I will
state frankly that my relations with
the bank were definitely and posi
tivelv severed early iu the year, my
resignation being unconditional, and
I have no thought or puiposo nf re
turning to the former employment.
Many of my friends think that I
should make a personal canvass of the
county, slid a word as to the reason
for not doing so is iu or.l. r.
For a bmg tune I have been lame,
and, for the tune being, compelled to
give up all work that requin-s much
walking or standing, and iu justice to
myself and family can not at this
time t:tke the risk of trawling ovor
the county, and am ct mpelUd to relv
entirely on my fi ivmli for support in
