The Independent candidate has
nothing to say about the power of
the people to take over privately op
erated power sites at any time, nor
has he given any insight Into what
he would do about the power situa
tion if elected governor. Mr. Met
schan declared in favor of federal
development of the Columbia river,
including the Umatilla Rapids pro
ject, as only through federal sup
port can such projects ever be put
across. That nothing would be
be gained toward putting such pro
jects across in Oregon with defying
the republican administration at
slowly improving following a ser- Washington by electing independent

Large Expenditures Cited
Why is the independent candidate
spending, or why is there being
spent for him, such immense sums
of money, the like of which has
never before been seen in the his
tory of the United States? In ask
ing the question Mr. Metschan de
clared that Vare of Pennsylvania
was a piker, for, comparing the
number of voters to be reached, the
independent candidate in Oregon
has far exceeded .him. Four thous

age bill alone for one mailing of

Campaign is Gaining
In commenting on his reception
over the state, Mr. metscnan saia
he has made friends in every place
visited, and with the rapid forma

clubs his campaign is gaining great
impetus. He feels he is giving the
people a message they should know,
and without expression of personal
animus in regard to the campaign
of villiflcation being waged against
him, he is ready after a full hearing
to let the matter rest in the hands
of the electorate.

MRS. THOMAS ESTES
I gradually fell off in weight
from 135 down to 62 pounds and was
nothing but skin and bones. 'I had
no appetite and the little food I did
eat just had to be forced down;
then I would suffer agony from it
with griping pains m the pit of my
stomach, in my right side and in
the small of my back. My heart
would get so weak and would flutter
so fast at times it would frighten
me. I would have terrible smother
ing spells and would have to gasp
"My circulation was bad. J would
feel chilly at times, and again great
beads of sweat would stand out
over my forehead, and I would get
blind and dizzy too.
"Yes, I suffered from chronic con
stipation for years and also had a
very bad, inactive liver. Often
times I had bilious attacks which
would make me deathly ill. During
the past five years I don't believe
I had a single night of good restful
sleep. My nervous system was sure
ly a wreck. I couldn t stand for
strangers or even neighbors to come
into my house. Nothing in the way
of medicines or treatments ever did
me any good. In fact, my condition
was so bad none of my neighbors
thought I would ever get well.
'Finally I decided to try Sargon.
I've taken 15 bottles of Sargon and
about 7 bottles of the Pills. Well,
it just acted like a miracle in my
case. I actually gained 63 pounds
in weight. As I said before, I only
weighed 62 pounds when I started
on it and now I weigh 125 pounds
and feel just like a woman made
all over again. I have regained all
my strength and energy and am do
ine all my house work. I can hard
ly wait from one meal to another.
"The Sargon Pills have cured me
of bilious attacks and constipation.
They are so wonderful I now feel
like I would like to tell the whole
world about Sargon and the Pills.
My friends and neighbors are all
talking about my wonderful recov

as I live. I believe it has saved my

teeth with the young hotel manager,
who found It necessary to stretch
his credit in order to operate. Sev
eral days elapsed without any offer
of aid from Mr. Fisher, and believ
ing that the gentleman should re
lieve the financial stringency, as
the drain of his party upon the ho
tel resources was very telling, Mr.
Metschan approached him.
"I only beat you to town three
days and I haven't any money, and
would like to keep my credit good,"
Mr. Metschan told him. To which
Mr. Fisher replied, "I haven't any
That's the way matters stood. As
soon as the young lady was on her
feet again, Mr. Metschan assisted
Mr. Fisher in advertising and stag
ing his snow, "East Lynn." The
proceeds amounted to $60, all but
$3 of which Mr. Fisher gave to Mr.
Metschan, who reluctantly accepted
so large a portion. Mr. Fisher in
sisted that the three dollars would
get them to lone, where they went
and from where Mr. Metschan re
ceived a further sum from Mr. Fish
er. The bill was finally paid through
dribbles over several years time,
the speaker said, and Joe Fisher
had become his very good friend.
Miss Marguerita Fisher, the girl
who was carried into the hotel on
a cot, later Decame famous as a
Another more humorous event
related by Mr. Metschan concerned
one Charles Stoneman. Mr. Stone-
man, who had been about the hotel
for some time and had become ob
ligated to Mr. Metschan, one day
approached him on the subject of
fishing. "Where's a good place to
fish?" he asked. Thinking to have
a little fun at Mr. Stoneman's ex
p e n s e, Mr. Metschan replied,
There's the best little fishing
stream you ever saw just over the
hill to the north in Blackhorse." Mr.
Stoneman took his tackle and struck
out, and apparently not being over
joyed with angling possibilities af
forded by the waterless region, he
never showed up at the hotel again.
Mr. Metschan never saw Stoneman
again until a few days following
his nomination for governor. One
day a man walked Into his Portland
hotel. You don t remember me, do
you?" Mr. Metschan admitted that
he didn't "I'm the man you sent
nsning in Blackhorse, and now s
my chance to get even."
Mr. Metschan's attitude was plain
ly unassuming as he called his old
time friends by their first names.
and a. smile of pure joy played
around his determined mouth,
though weariness from his stren
uous campaign was evident. There
were no spontaneous bursts of ap
plause engendered by a play upon
the feelings of his audience, but a
sense of sympathetic understanding
such as might be expected at a fam
ily reunion, thoroughly borne out by
the many who lingered after the
meeting that they might longer re
live together the eventful early days
that had so large a part in building
the Heppner of today, and to per
sonally offer their support to Mr.
Metschan. Mr. Metschan recalled
other friends still residing here, not
at the meeting, whom he wag sorry
not to have seen.
With apparent reluctance the
speaker left off reminiscing to en
ter upon a discussion of so-called
issues of the campaign.
