TO TUB REPUBLICANS 01-" LANI2 COUNTY:
I am a candidate for the Republican nomination for tho
office of District Attorney. Many of you are my clients, I
have practiced law in Lane County about eight years, and nm
opposed in the primaries by. two men of slight oxperlenco as
lawyers. The inexperience of the incumbent has been ex
pensive to tho taxpayers', and In order to prove this statement
I elnploycd at my own expense an auditor to audit the records
of Lane County, report of which Is as follows;
"THIS IS TO CERtIFY, that I have nudited tho Rocords
of Lano County, Oregon, covoring tho cost to tho County of
criminnl cases, and tho items thereof aro as follows:
Justice Court, December 1, 1913 to April 1, 1916. .$4,268.72
Office Expenses, December 1, 1913 to April 1916. 1,846.34
Witness foos, 1914, 1915, to April 1, 1916. : 9,164.20
Juror Fees, 1914, 1915, to April 1, 1916 3,033.30
Extra Attorney Foos Allowed by Court In criminal
Total Cost to County $18,387.56
Dated at Eugono, Orogon, this 20th day of April, 1916.
(Signed) W. G. WILLIAMS. r
The above audit does not Include the salary and ex
penses of Grand Jurors, nor the salary of $2,100.00 per annum
of the District, Attorney, nor the many hundred dollars paid by
the County to additional counsel In civil cases employed by
the County Court because the incumbent was unable to
handle the litigation. The above audit Is not a complete
record because in order to obtain a complete record it would
necessitate the auditor Inspecting sovoral thousand bills In
order to locate the exact expense. The above amounts, how
ever, were obtaind from the records and carefully computed.
Tho above amount does not Include the $1,200.00-Mr. Dcvers
claims to have spent for detective hire. Figuring the ex
pense of the District Attorney's office from November, 1913, to
April first, 1916, and Including the salary of tho District At
torney you will have a total item exceeding .$20,000.00. The
most important criminnl cases during the incumbent's term
were lost, and I believe I make a fair statement when I say
that a large amount of the above expense were Incurred
through. Inexperience and lack of business judgment on tho
part of the Incumbent.
I trust you will read my page In the State Party Campaign
Pamphlet, which you will receive from the Secretary of State.
I pledged myself If nominated and and elected to strict
law enforcement, efllclency and economy, courteous treat
ment to the public and an earnest desire to fill tho office with
credit to myself as well as to the community In which I reside.
I will attend to the law business of the County In an or
derly manner without cry from the housetops and will try my
cases in the proper tribunal Instead of the newspapers, arid .
will earnestly and conscientiously give the taxpayers of Lano
County the bpneflt of eight years' experience as a lawyer,
Instead of getting my experience at the expense of the. tax
payers. I trust that I may have your vote, and if. I am nominated
and elected you will never have occasion to regret tho con
fidence you- repose In. mo.
