Tie .Venator is proclaiming the fact over this Senatorial
District that he was one of the "Faithful Fourteen'' in the special
session called by the Governor just before last Christmas. The
fncts are ns follows: At the special session there were three
companion measures to pass regarding the support of the World's
Fair to be held at Portland in 1925, one to pass a law regaraing
gasoline tax; one to bond the state, and the third to call a special
election to vote on the question as to whether or not we would have
the fair. Mr, Eberhard voted "yes'' to call the special election to
have the fair and every other member of the fourteen senators
voted no. Was he one of the "Faithful Fourteen," or was he rot?
We don't think so.
Demands Reduction In Taxes.
If nominated and elected Mr. Kitchen will favor the reduction
of taxes by all taxing bodies, no more bonds issued until a method
is devised for paying those alread y authorized. Cut over-lapping
commissions, upply strict economy in expenditure of all public
funds same as in private affairs, not affecting our efficiency. i
Fewer Offices Advocuted.
. Mr. Kitchen advocates fewer offices and the raise of no sal
aries and placing Governor's salary back where it was before the
50 per cent raise. He stnnds for the organized farmer and laborer
and the cutting out of all frills in education and the giving of
preference to ex-service men on public work.
Cut Out Extravgance,
He advocates rhange in auto tax law so owner will pay on
value and not weight of machine; let holder of note secured by
mortgage on real estate pay taxes on it and not mortgagor pay
double taxation; cut out all unnecessry appropriations and stand
lor poll or income tax so taxation on real property will be more
fair and uniform. "Cut out extravagance. Reduce taxes nol
just talk about it."
Kitchen is Out to Win.
He is not in this race to divide the votes between any other
candidates but to be nominated himself and the voters of the
19tn Senatorial District snould support him.
