MAYOR BAKER IS PEEVED
Mayor P,corge J,, baker's exhibition of temper at Kla
math hall- the other day while a guest of that city on his
i'j-5 J;air-Hoost ing-Cara van trip, would indicate that the
mayor must have acquired a man-sized peeve and that his
nerves bad become so raw by the time he reached Klamath
Kalis that the remarks of Mr. Era! Elect, a local speaker
who has some reputation as a humorist, were more Uian
bizoner could stand and as a last resort he simply lost his
temper, saw red and ''blew up."
'1 be mayor's peeve probably started in Ileppner where
a o.upk- of speakers were honest enough to tell the Port
land visitors the exact truth about public sentiment in this
county regarding the proposed 19..-5 exposition.
in his reply Mayor baker showed quite plainly that he
nd not like the truth about his pet project but would have
pp. lei-red soil soap, platitudes and mis-statements from the
h'ral speakers, rather than an honest expression of condi
tions as iney are. 1 te described the Ileppner idea as the first
discordant note heard 011 the trip and was glad to hear it be
cause it afforded the first, opportunity he had had to make
an argument for the exposition.
In all candor it must' be said that the
ments were not very convincing. His first argument was
:i S I 1'i.linni'in, I. i ............. r. .. 1 ... i- ,
-1" """"" "MT1"-1 1,11 naviiig an opinion o.t her
own about the propriety of holding an exposition in 1925,
indicating among oilier things that because the people of
this section of the slate do not agree with his views absolu
u'h -'had we are not progressive citizens; that we are
breeders of sectional hatred and bad feeling, that we '"have
it in for Portland," and, that 'we probably drew our inspira
lion lor opposition to the exposition from reading the Ore
gon Voter which amounted to tellingus we have not brains
enough to reason out. .a proposition for ourselves.
Air. I.aker is a big man physically and, there was a
I ime when many eastern Oregon people looked upon him as
considerable of a citizen in more ways than one and it is
only a matter of regret that he should have permitted his
lemper to get so much the better of him while 011 Ins exposi
tion tour as to reveal this heretofore unsuspected pettiness
and pettishncss-of his nature.
His second argument was a rather bitter attack on C
C Chapman, of the Oregon Voter. Mr. Chapman was not
l'r!-'",' l"dr!end hinis, li'btit had he been present the
ma or s characterization of Chapman as a "parasite" and a
"lly-b night" would have sounded heller to eastern Ore
gon ear... A pari o the buncbgrass code is "Say it to his
lace;" w sounds more manly and then it often means a light
and we bunchgrassers are still close enough to primeval
man to dearly enjoy a light whether verbal, fistic or gun.
M'MTnw county people have no disposition to "light"
I '"r I land 011 1 he' e. posit ion matter or on an vt hing else un
less a light is forced upon thmii. Messrs Woodson and
Mahoney, who frankly told Mayor baker and his partv
that sentiment here is not favorable to the fair, were cour
teous in their remarks, extended a warm welcome to the
isitors and wire willing to be "shown." They explained,
however, that this section is up against a financial condi
tion that is serious. Many prominent stockmen and far
mers who enjoyed a high financial rating three vears ago.
are lod.n unable to pay their taxes and have been in that
condition lor two ears and these people reserve the right
to bob! an opinion of their own regarding anv proposal that
even remotely threatens any increase in taxation.
Mr, Piker does not seem willing to concede anv such
1 ght to eastern Oregon. He wants the fair, he savs Port
laud wants I he fair, I herelore all ( Iregon must wantthe fair,
;il b as! must pretend they want the fair in order to re
ream in rood standing with the mayor of Portland. Can
