It is all important that we elect to the

who has had experience. Such a one is

"Mankiller" is a term generally used
by printers In referring to a band press.
It appears that a number of people did
not understand what we meant two
weeks ago when we stated that II, B.
Hendricks ran our "mankiller" for that
issue, some thinking that he furnished

take. Mr. Hendricks is not responsible
for a line that appeared in the paper.

candidate for county judge, was in town

Marvel informs us that be never saw

grain is now so rank and large that there
is no danger of the ground drying out so
as to injure it. We hope he is right.
This section was flooded this week by
a lot of novels published in New York,
giving a detailed account of the robbery
of tbe Roslyn bank, in which Cal Hale,
Geo. Zachary, Byron Barnard and Tom
Kimsey are shown up as the bravest
and most noted desperadoes of tbe 19th
century. It is rich also the silliest rot
anybody ever read. A noted feature
about the novel is that there isn't one
word of truth in it.

danger of illegal voting. The penalty
for this Offense fa very severe, being
from onff to teri years in.tlie penitentiary,
Two'years ago a man in Wallowa county
was convicted arid sentenced to two
years for voting for a precinct candidate
when lie was riot entitled to a vote in
the precinct. It is the dutv of 'tbe indstos

for this and see that all voting is done
On the square. It requires" a'Totro fide

The voters of this district should rise
above party prejudice and elect an able
and competent man for district attorney.
This is one of the most Important offices
to he filled at.the coming election. Is is
too imporlarit an office for the members
of any party to vote for their party nom
inee on purely partisan grounds. The
office Is stHctly non-political. It should
be filled by a lawyer of sound judgment
and unquestioned ability.
E. B. Dufur, the democratic nominee,
fills the measure of that standard. Be
sides being eminently qualifled for tbe
position, he is possessed of sound judg
ment and rare discrimination powers
which would insure taxpayers against
useless or unnecessary ex'pense. He is
cautious lit commencing litigation, but
once in, he is a formidable opponent.
No person "who has heard him in court,
or no lawyer who has met Mr. Dufur,
either as an associate or an opponent,
will for a moment question his ability
to hold his own with the best, and it is
tbe best that tbe district attorney has to
Mr. Dufdr is an attorney of many years
successful experience, during which time
he'has taken part, in nearly all the im
portant litigation of Wasco county. His
associates who have known him at the
bar during all the period of his practice,
inform us that they never knew of his
being demurred out of court, or nonsuit
ed during all that time, and during tbe
past ten years be has doubtless partici
pated in as many trials as any one law
yer in the district and with as much suc
cess. The1 district wants the service of
just such a man ; a man who has proved
himself as Mr, Dufur has, to be an able
lawyer and a man of unquestioned in
tegrity. He is one of the most honorable
men in the profession, enjoys tbe confi
dence of his associates for his honesty
and estimable qualities, and is eminent
ly qualified to till the position to which
he aspires, and to which be should be
elected on the 4th of June. He is no
experiment; he will be no mistake.
A great many popnlists throughout
tbe 7th district, believing that there is
no chance for their nominee, Mr. Sine,
to be elected this time, will support Mr.
Dufur, which shows excellent judgment
on their part.

I have noticed several letters recently
in the Arlington Record, which were in
tended to prejudice the voters against
Sheriff Wilcox. After favoring and be-
friending the taxpayers as he has ever
since ,he has been in office, this kind of
attack against him will only disgust
scores of republicans who otherwise
might have voted for Livingston, and
cause' them to vote for Wiicox; whom
they finow is their friend, for he has
proved it more than once, The tax pay
ing voters of this county are too intelli
gent to allow themselves to be prejudiced
against an honest official by such stuff
as this Mayville correspondent (who is
one and the same writer, who doesn't
live 100 miles from Condon) has been
sending to the Arlington paper. The
voters know better than that.
Of course Livingston is a good citizen.
Who said be wasn't? .Nobody said that
he is "bloodthirsty" and "eats a man
for breakfast every morning," except
his henchman correspondent, who is do
ing him more harm than good by trying
to poll down Wilcox in order to build
up Livingston. "Voter" says that "as
a private citizen Mr. Livingston has
been very successful, which in itself is a
good recommend for office." Now if
this is true, wouldn't all men of sound
judgment advise him to stay with what
ever he is able to make a success at?
So few men make a success of orivate
business that when one is found who
can, he surely ought to stay with it.
w hy spoil a good farmer to make a poor
official ? It does not always follow that
a man who makes a success in private
business makes a good official. In many
cases it is just the reverse. I know an
official in Eastern Oregon who has held
a certain office ten years and has filled
the office creditably who made the sad
dest kind of a failure in private business
before getting into office. Put a farmer
who is not qualified for office work into
an office and be would be as much out
of place as a fish is out of water.
Mr. Livingston admits himself that he
is not competent or qualified to keep the
sheriff's books, but says that if elected
he will put a man in the office who can
do tbe work. It seems to me this kind
of service would be very dissatisfactory
to the taxpayers and public generally.
Much better elect Mr. Wilcox who is an
expert book-keeper and who would not
have to depend on every Tom, Dick aud
Harry to keep his books for bim. Judge
Mariner, one of the ablest and most im
partial officials in the state, says that
books can not be kept in better shape
than Sheriff Wilcox has kept them ever
since he has been in office.
Besides being thoroughly qualified to
conduct the office to the entire satisfac
tion of all, Mr. Wilcox is yet young and
vigorous, and can if necessary jump onto
a nor and ride 100 miles a day a duty
a sheriff is often obliged to perform.
Could his opponent do this? 1 fear not
except by proxy. ,
What our taxpayers want is efficient
service, and surely they can not find a
man who is able to give better satisfac
tion than Sheriff Wilcox has always
given, or one who is more willing to be
friend tbem and stand by them in such
times ot adversity' as the past year has
been. "Let well enough alone" is an
excellent motto in this case. I don't
think there are many voters, regardless
of party, in this county who care to run
tne risk oi discarding a good, obliging
official for a new man whom his beet
friends know is not qualified to discharge
the duties of tbe office. Independent.
