JUDGE LOWELL WRITES
(Continued from First Page.)
in some ot tne counties ot hib
state the administration of the pro
hibition law is a farce. There must
be some legislation which will give
the governor authority over peace
officers. The open violation of this
law constitutes an influence upon the
vouth of the state, which may result
in a plague of law-breaking and a
generation of criminals. I am not
an extremist and am fully aware
that the liquor statute is in advance
of public sentiment, but it is the law,
and its obedience must be enforced
"If I were governor I would find
means in a four year term to reduce
the existing rate of taxation fifty per
cent, half of which would come
through abandonment of follies in
our educational system. I believe that
any man in the executive office can
accomplish that, if he will. The vot
ers, however, must send the right
men to the legislature, and they must
repeal or radically modify the mill-
age tax laws. No man in the gover
measure men by the standard of
character, not by creed or nativity,
and into the existing maelstrom of
alien controversy, and creedal strife
I decline to plunge. I shall not be
a candidate at the primary election.
"It would be both ungracious and
of questionable taste were I to either
discuss the gubernatorial candidates,
or express a choice among them, as
suming that the field is full, which
indeed may be a false assumption.
There is yet abundant time for other
men to enter. Both Mr. Lee and Mr.
Patterson were active in politics
when I came to the state a genera
tion ago. I have known both for at
least a quarter of a century. Gover
nor Olcott and Mr. Bean belong to
the younger generation of statesmen
but I have known them both well
during the years of their political
activity. With Mr. Hall I have no
acquaintance that I recall. All are
"Whoever is elected governor in
November must take office with a
definite program of tax reduction,
and he will need the friendly and
intelligent cooperation of the legis
lature to succeed. The best men in
the state ought to make a sacrifice
at this juncture and become mem
bers of that body next winter. !n my
judgment the voters will do we'l to
send a goodjy number if strong dem
ocrats to both house and senate. Or
egon needs a balance wheel in its
"County officials, tw, must strike
hands with the administration in re
ducing expenses, and lowering taxes.
Outside the millage burden, it is the
counties and cities where the weight
of taxation is found. There is little
of wasted money all along the line.
The state tax commission could have
secured data without extra expense.
"Retrenchment everywhere must
be the slogan. 1 am not opposed to
the income tax on principle, but in
practice it has never worked equit
ably. Theoretically it is right. A
large number of our states have tried
it, however, and have abandoned it.
In a new state where both local and
foreign capital is needed for the dev
elopment of resources, I can see that
such a tax might be a detriment.
Capitalists and capital will be likely
to go to those states where no such
burden is imposed.
"The experiment of Illinois, Wash
ington and Idaho in departmental
government may be in the end suc
cessful. My information now is that
the improvement, so far as expense
is concerned, is as yet problematical
Such at least seems to be the concen
sus Of Opinion in Idaho. In any event
many of our commissions will have
to be consolidated in the interest of
saving. This can probably be done
without sacrifice of public service
It will surely be wise to await the
report of the special committee ap
pointed recently to investigate the
administrative codes of our sister
states. Reform does not attach to
every change In governmental meth
ods. Oregon has been too free with
experiments in the past
"There is much surface discussion
of the university and agricultural
college, but thus far it only touches
the corona of the most far reaching
problem which confronts this, or any,
state, that of education. Most men
are so wedded to the public school
system, in all its ramifications, that
they neither attempt to analyze it,
nor are they willing to listen to con
structive criticism of is work. There
is no man who more strongly believes
in the value of the real public schools
it over to a private educational cor
poration,' that it may be maintained
and conducted as Harvard, Yale and
the great institutions of the coun
try are maintained and conducted.
"The state should promptly retire
from the higher educational field,
and devote its money and energy to
perfection of the real common
schools, and see to it that every boy
and girl has a practical fundamental
education. There are only from three
to five per cent of our youth of school
age who enter the state college and
university annually. Can any thought
ful person honestly claim that it is
the duty of the state to expend vast
sums of money for the so-called high
er education of that percentage of its
children. Surely not. There will al
ways be plenty of colleges to accom
modate all those who are ambitious
for higher education. I am not aware
that either Luther Burbank, Henry
Ford or Thomas A. Edison ever saw
the inside of any college or univers
ity. "Respectfully yours,

How to Really Save
On Cost of Painting
FIRST, find out what good
paint is, for that is where you
start to save on paint. We spend
more to make paint for your econ
omy as follows:
We use only the best materials
in Fuller's Specification House
Paints PIONEER WHITE
LEAD, pure linseed oil, zinc and
We super-purify the lead, in a
special purifier. Then we make
the lead so fine that it will pass
through a silk screen with 40,000
meshes to the square inch.
The "whiter" lead means clearer
toned colors. The extreme fineness
means better mixing quality,
greater covering capacity, more
ease in spreading a paint that's
always uniform and smooth.
Such paints when applied form
a beautiful elastic, tough, protec
tive coat that stays. They are
known as "Fuller's Specification
Don't Figure Paint Economy as
"Cost per Gallon."
"Cheap paints can't compete
with good paints in economy.
"Cheap" paint covers less you
buy more gallons." It is harder tb

you pay more labor, cost. Your
"saving" in less cost per gallon b
very quickly eaten up, -
Cheap paint starts to crack in
twelve months. Good paint re
mains good five or more years. It
is really the cheap paint that is
expensive. Don't allow surfaces to
rot it costs less to paint them.
There is no real cost in painting
with the best paint. Depreciation
of an unpainted building far ex
ceeds the cost of paint.

free advice. He will
