ABOUT POLITICS 10
.Too H. llccman, lormcr mayor of
Gold Hill, has written tho follow
ltK open letter to Thomas V. Luwson
of Frenzied Financctfnmc:
Oct. 25, 1914.
Tlios. W. Lnwson,
My Dear Sir:
1 havo read your appeal In behalf
of Wm.-Hanley'r candidacy for U. S.
Bcnator with much lutercet, especially
bo in that I ato jf your Krcniicd
I'lnnnco hide, hair and tallow I
liked It so well that 1 invited my
friends to partako of It. I seemed to
thrive so well on tho diet that I bill-
boarded myself with yourx National
Block, but when you ask tho people
or this wonderful state of Oregon to
ack the banucr of Dili llanlcy, and
to cast Senator Chamberlain in tho
discard, you nro a wrong as you con
fess jou were, when you took up
lioosevelt In tho placo of Woodroxv
Wilson, who you now frankly admit
Ib "one of our greatest 6f presidents"
and that his administration has dono
more real good- for tho nation for
the people than all the administra
tions, bince Llnroln's, combined.
1 would remind jou that wheu you,
and the system, were- promoting
Amalgamated Copper, that resulted In
no much hell as jou dramatically
described It In your Frenzied Finance
George E. Chamberlain was bat
tling consistently for extending the
people's rights, nnd recovering hun
dreds of thousands of dollars of tbo
people of Oregon's stolen money, es
tablishing it in to n revolving fund
for the schools saving as much
from the wreck of tho school lands
that tho land grabbers of tho strlpo
of tho Mauleys and Hooths had failed
to grab, llauluy would probably have
fenced In that wonderful Oregon
ozone, of which jour arc now breath
ing so freely, had not tho hands of
the law stayed him.
1 would also remind you that while
ypu In all your greatness was
writing Frenzied Finance, George U.
Chamberlain was tit tho Sacramento
Irrigation Congress telling Mr. liar
rlinau to "sit down, that ho was not
tho proper custodian of pobterlty."
that ho could not steal S.OOu.uuu
acres of Oregon'K best land,
George E. Chamberlain fought
consistently und hard and his ef
forts a lo about to bo crowned with
success, In restoring tliouo 3,000,000
uctos of railroad lands to tliu people.
There nro big things to-do for tho
nation, there arc big things to do for
Oregon, In regard to tho disposition
of these lands to the settlers, tho job
requires a man whose hands are not
Btnlued und calloused with land grab,
blug, u good clean man, a man that
has been tried and true, a man who
has stood the acid test of time, whoso
dcuds havu so won tho hearts of tho
pcoplo that thoy aro willing to trust
him Mich a man Is George K. Chum
boilaln. 1 would remind joti that George E.
Chamberlain stood side by side with
Senator Qwens whom jou so frank
ly ttdmlt Is tho greatest, of senators
1 ulso call your attention to the
fact that Senator Oweps received a
letter from President Wilson, u,nder
the duto of September 30th, iu which
tho president bald, "I want to say to
you again how sincerely I hope for
tho reelection of Seuutor Chamber
lain.'' So therefore tho greatest of prosl
Uunt, and tho greatest of feenators
wants Senator Chamberlain returned
to Washington, ivnd tho good people
of Oregon with their knowledge of
George Chuinborlaln's horvlro for
them, could better afford to take tliu
president' und Senator Owens' word,
rllir thau yours, whoso Interest lu
Mexico is purhups second only to
that of tliu Standard Oil.

AVIIjIjAOIO contemporary. Iniintinil upon thu subject
of prohibit ion, t'intls fault with the Mall Tribune for
.. ....... . . i . tea -. a t
printing nnti-proliibitioh advert ising,
law lit 1
Tho Mail Tribune reserves the right to say what will
go into its columns. It believes that partisans of any pol
itical issue are entitled to reach the public through its col
umns, provided tho space is paid for at regular rates. It
sells space both to the prohibitionist and to the anti-prohibitionist,
as does vvery other real newspaper.
The Mail Tribune believes prohibition an 000110111
fallacy, a political mistake and an industrial calamity. It
believes prohibition morally a step backward into the out
grown, narrow ways of seventeenth century puritauisiu.
It is an hysteria cultivated by itinerant agitators, who
make a fat living out of it.
The Mail Tribune is equally opposed to the rule of the
saloon. It believes prohibition sentiment created largely
bv the refusal of the saloon to live within the law and the
saloons' activity in polities to prevent law enforcement.
Unless the saloon keeps respectable and keeps out of pol
itics, it is doomed. The Mail Tribune favors the election of
Dr. Smith for governor not only because of superior abil
ity, but because he also stands for law enforcement.
The Mail Tribune is one of the great majority which
has 110 interest either in the saloon or in the professional
prohibitionist, vet which is ground between the upper and
nelher millstones of the agitation, a sufferer by the indus
trial upheaval and financial depression that follows radical
The liquor dealer comes and goes; the prohibition agi
tator comes and goes, but the property owner and business
man, the investor and. wage earner has to remain and bear
the burden, pocket the loss and pay the bills for the dance
of the extremists for statewide prohibition means' hard
tunes for Oregon.
OUR CONGRESSIONAL INCUBUS
UPON Congressman Ilawley 's re-election placard ap
pears the legend:
"NO INTERESTS TO
Mr. Ilawley draws some
20 cents a mile for mileage
surely entitles tlie public to
However, Mr. Hawlcv does not devote his entire time
to serving the public. Ever since he has been congress
man he has drawn an additional salary from a fraternal in
surance organization of $75 a month and $5 a day extra
with traveling expenses every time! he attended a meeting
of the board of which lie is a member.
The Congressional Tfeeord of August 8, "l.f)M, page
14(599, contains the following statement by Speaker Clark:
Yesterday morning tho chair appointed the gentleman from Oregon, Mr.
Ilawley. on tho committee of 4S to attend tho funeral of Mrs. Wilson. The
chair ha just received a telegram from him saying that hs has gon to
Oregon and ran not be here.
Mr. Hawlcv wiis excused from congress to come to Or
egon. He did not come to Oregon and had no intention of
coining to Oregon. Instead, he went to Denver to attend
the meeting of the fraternal organization. The official or
gan of that fraternity says in its September issue, page 1JJ:
August 10. At 9 a. in. the hoard of head managers met pursuant to ad
journment. Present: John Paulson, head manager; W. C. Ilawley, head
manager; John H. Altoui, head manngcr.
On page 14 of the same issue is slated among official
W. C. Uawloy, railroad faro Washington, D. C, Denver and return and
sleeper, $100.42. W. C. Ilawley, 9 days per dlom, $45.00.
"Was this serving no interests but the public interests?
Mr. Hawlcv 's conception of serving no interests'but the
public interests is rather peculiar, as shown by his record.
He has never originated a measure and always voted for
the predatory interests.
Senator La Pollcttc classified Mr. Ilawley as a "me
too' congressman and quoted part of his record as follews:
Mr. Ilawley voted for Cannon as speaker, for the continuance of Cannon
czar rulo, und for Tammany-Cannon comblno against revision of Iioiiko ruloH,
Ho voted for the emergency currency bill, which strengthened tho Wall
street hold on finance.
Without question or suggestion, within twenty minutes ot Its being of.
fored to the Iiouko. he supported a senate amendment of iho appropriation
bills Increasing the ocean mall subsidy $1,100,000 and the costs of the
rallioad mall service $2,700,000.
Ho voted with tho 'system' prohibiting the government to use secret
scrvico men except In the treasury department, because somu had caught
'land grabbers' of high reputo red-handed,
Ho voted for postal bank bill favoring Wall street, and against tho
Appalachian forest reserve, which provided for the reforestation of de.
nuded, barren hills.
In brief, Hawlcv, a reactionary at heart, a sympathizer
and nominee of the assembly, has always voted with tho
standpatters and has done what ho could in his feeble way
to oppose and embarrass Woodrow "Wilson.
Really the most objectionable feature to Hawley's re:
election is his blatant claim of "I done it" for every bit of
legislation secured by the Oregon delegation. He has no
more conscience about filching the credit of others than ho
has for drawing a salary from two masters.
Mr. Jlawley brassily claims credit for '.securing the
Crater Lake road appropriation. The first appropriation
was scared by Senator Bourne, who held up the civil sun
dry bill until it was included. Each time the senate voted
this appropriation the house, where Mr. Hawloy was,
struck it out yet Mr. Ilawley claimed the ercdit'of secur
ing the appropriation. '
The second appropriation for Crater Lake of $85,000
was sucurcfl by Senator Chamberlain this vear. The sen
ate voted $100,000. The house, where Mr. ilawley sat, cut
it to $75,000. Senator Chamberlain, as a conferee, secured
the compromise at $85,000, yet -Mr. Hawlcv claims the
credit for this also.
rt is the same story with Oregon rivers and harbors and
other approprintioim not '"ME, TOO," in those in
stances, but "MIO" always and cvcr"MI0."
Tt is true that Mr. Ilawley was rewarded for his faith
fulness to Uncle Joe Cannon by being given a lit Ic out of
Ilia pork barrel, a few pontolTiccH, JJJcu (lint at ModfowlJ

MEDFORP, QUtiGON. TPlidftAV. OCTOBER 27,
lint he has been amply rewarded by two re-elections
ha-' done nothing since lo merit consideration. Now
on the wrong side of the political fence for hudouts.
The fate of tho rivers and harbors bill shows that the
day of the pork barrel-is past. No longer will such meth
ods be tolerated and there exists mr earthly reason for
the return to office of insignificant pork barrel statesmen
of the Jlawley type. !
Kegardiiig Mr. Ilollistcr, who opposes Mr. Ilawley, lit
tle is known, save that he is an active and successful busi
ness man and hails from a part, of the district that has
never secured political recognition, lie is highly spoken of
by his fellow townsmen and has created a favorable im
pression throughout the district. At least he is alive ami
wide awake to the needs of the hour.
UVpublicans as well as dvuioerats are tired of ilawley
and of such presentation, or rather lack of representa
tion, at the national capital. That they regard the time
ripe for getting rid of him is shown by the support Mr.
Ilollistcr is receiving from the republican press of this con
gressional district the great majority of the newspapers
supporting Ilollistcr, and in their support reflecting the
sentiment of their various communities.
Now is the psychological tipie for the first disirM to
shelve its congressional incubus, and a vote for Ilollistcr
will solve the problem.
