sJbHN B. BELL
for Senator, Linn and Lane Counties
EDITORIAL PROM EUGENE DAILY GUARD OP
APRIL 23, 1918.
THE CENTRAL OREGON ENTERPRISE, of
Prineville, speaking of the candidacy of John B. Bell
for senator from the joint district of Lane and Linn
"If John is as popular in Lane county as he was in
Crook county, he might as well take a trip down to the
state house and select his seat for the next session."
This is a creditable tribute to a man who was for
merly associated with the business and interests of the
Prineville community. Men may aspire to public office
and go down to defeat and Jfeel that they have, lost
nothing so long as they know1 their old friends and
neighbors with whom it had been their pleasure to be
associated honor them. It is a great distinction to be
selected to serve the people of the state in the senate,
but it is infinitely greater to have made a record in life
in which the testimony of old acquaintances is to the
effect that as a man you have been tried and found to
be true to every 'trust.
It has been a good many years since John Bell lived
in Prineville, but, across the space of time, comes the
word to his new home: "He is a good man, you may
well honor him".
John Bell needs no endorsement from outside of
Lane county. His works here place him near the top
of the column of the names of the county's good citi
zens. It is a pleasure, however, to read such a tribute
to one you know. The time will come when he will be '
making a trip down to Salem and selecting his seat,
just as the Prineville editor suggests.
The guard has previously announced .its belief
that the people should disregard party and look to men
who promise the greatest service in winning the war.
To the people of Lane and Linn counties, regardless of
party, it commends the candidacy of John B. Bell, re
publican, for the position of state senator, because it
knows that he is 100 per cent American and a man
whose plain business sense will make his service of val
ue to his country, state and county.
John Bell is a steady going fellow. His business
interests which are associated with those of both Lane
and Linn counties are not large, but sufficient to mark
him a successful man. Ho has never made a practice
of forcing himself into the limelishl or seeking notor
iety through the newspapers by playing to sensational
ism. He has, however, taken an active part in public
affairs in Eugene and Lane county. Since the declara
tion of war, he has participated in activities of vital in
terest to the nation. He has worked quietly and well.
Where he has gone, results have followed and there
has been no bellowing or blowing over accomplishment.
He is moving about as a candidate for senator in the
sairie effective way. He finds no occasion to assert
that if he is elected he will save the state a million dol
lars. He knows that no man single-handed is going to
perform such a feat in the senate of the state of Oregon
lie has stated his platform briefly. It may be sum- .
med up in the single paragraph as follows:
"I stand for Bane and businesslike legislative ses
sions, fewer and more effective laws, and for a vigor
ous and straight out policy in everything pertaining to
the prosecution of the war."
That ia platform enough for John B. Bell. The
vote that he will receive In Eugene, Ills home city, on
the day of the primary election, will attest 'that it is
