RALPH E. WILLIAMS
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR
Ralph E. Williams, of Portlnnd, native son of Ore
gon and present Republican National Committeeman,
is a candidate .for rcnomlnatlon and election. AU'Ore
gon knows that Mr. Williams was tho chief factor in
bringing about tho reunion of the Republican and Pro
gressive parties In tho state in 11)10, resulting in Ore
gon being tho only state In tho West to cast its electoral
vote for Hughes. That Mr. Williams' splendid work in
harmonizing tho various elements of the Republican
and Progressive parties is also recognized nationally,
is attested by strong letters of ondqrsQinent, written
by William R. Wilcox, retiring chairman of tho Repub
, llcan National Committee, Georgo W. Perkins, chair
man of the executive committee of the Progressive
party, and Will II. Hays, recently elected chairman of
tho Republican National Committee. These letters re
fer not only to the state and national campaign of 1916
but also to tho recent meeting of tho Republican Na
tional Commltteo at St. Louis, whero Mr. Williams'
activities materially aided in establishing the spirit of
cooperation and harmony which now prevails in tho '
party throughout tho United States.
A descendant of Orogon pjonoor Btock, his pnrontB
having' crossed tho plains to Oregon in 1815, Ralph
Williams' Americanism has found abundant expression
since the outbreak of tho war by participation In all
As Is generally known, seniority in service gives
prestlgo and influence on tho Republican National
Commltteo lit thq same moasuro iw on .Congressional
committees. At the present tlmo ho is ranked as to sou
lorlty on tho National Commit eo by two members only..'
This puts Mr. Williams In a position of power and dis
tinction such as no now member of tho Committee
could hope to attain.
Ills reelection will insuro to the State of Oregon all
the added l)oviVefitsl,which will naturally accrue from his
