Portland's Teapot Dome
Portland seems to have a Tea
pot Dome scandal of its own just
now and according to the inter
est so far aroused the promise is
. that severa' prominent politicians
may lie called upon to make some
eiribarnssing explanations. The
immediate cause of the explosion
was 1 he letting of the contract
for the building of three bridges
by Multnomah, a figure that was
half a million dollars higher than
othe responsible bids. This caused
a loud protest ogainst the action
of the county commissioners and
a demand for their recall, also for
a thorough investigation of the
"inside" facts of the transaction,
but as soon as this scandal began
to be aired rumors began to tiy
charging wholesale graft in the
county and city business, especi
ally in the matter of taking out
insurance on fireproof public
buildings and furnishing surety
bonds, selling city securities and
the control of official patronage
in the way of jobs, public print
ing and other things. The aver
age citizen of Poilland thinks and
says that the conduct of city and
county all'airs "is rotten," but
how far the promised investiga
tion w ill (ievelop the facts is some
what problematical. The parties
supposed to be involved are
Htrongly ccmnected and iiillu
ential, which means Hint the
wheels of justice are li-ible to be
Thos. P. Kay of Salem, bus an
nounced his can lii'aey for state'
treasurer on the KepuhVun tick
et. Air. K'iy has probably a more
intimate knowledge of slate liusi
liess than any other man in Ore

bouse of the legislature in I'.KH!

and l'.lj;!. The business and l'r
tuiiK'ial all'airs of the stale are at
bis tongue's end and being a man
of everyday business xperience,
also a man who has worked in
dustriously all his life, he is di
rectly interested in every move
tor economy and the safe invest
ment of Oregon luiuls.
Mr. Kuv is a peculiar sort of
politician. He never talks just to
gel volts, but be advocates what
be believes to be riuht even
though every hearer should he
opposed to him. , lie is not afraid
to bi heard on any subject of
public interest and there is never
any doubt as to where lie stands.
He is the author of several pieces
of economic and constructive
legislation and it w as lie who put
a stop to the practice which hud
prevailed in Oregon during all
the previous life of the state, by
which the state treasurer loaned
t,;e money in the treasury and
pocketed the interest.
Mr. Kay's rectrd in all respects
will without doubt bring him
strong support all over the state,
though in his courageous tight for
Oregon's best interests be has
made bitter enemies who will try
to defeat him.
The highest civil duty we owe
to our state and our country in
times of peace is to go to the polls
and vote intelligently. No man
or woman clothed with citizen
ship has a right to neglect that
duty. Inform yourself on men
and measures and see to it that
