T LONDON, Oct. 28, 3:55 a. in. The
correspondent of the Times in North

Harding the fighting in Belgium under
The British fire at Yprcs, after a
elorions stand for five days against
overwhelming odds, drove tho enemy
fifteen miles. Tho German forces
wcro commanded bv tho Bavnrinn

"Tho British forces captured Lan
gemarck, five miles northeast of
Yprcs, on Friday niter inflicting
enormous losses on the enemy and es
tablished entrenched positions beyond
"At night after the roar of the can
non had ceased, thero was suddenly
a shrill whistlo and bushes soaked
in petroleum broko into flames,
throwing a glare over tho scene.
Masses of men sprang up from the
beet crops within a few hundred
yards of onr trenches and with bugle
sound, yell and song they came dash
ing forward to our position.
"Though taken by surprise, our
brave men were not unprepared. They
took their places in the trenches and
held them, pouring a terrific fire into
tho advancing hosts.
"Answering with rifle and machine
gun, tho enemy advanced, still with
tho buglo playing and amid shouts
of qioch! Ilochl" They were in
dense ..uiasses and they fell by the
hundreds. They got within thirty
yards of the trenches when they re
coiled. "Then came three blasts of a
whistle, sounding the retreat. Our
men sprang out of ,lhe trenches and
went in among them with the bayonet.
Tho slaughter wns terrible, and thero
were many hand to hand encounters.
"In tho dim glare of tho burning
bushes some of the enemy threw down
their arms and plended for mercy.
No quarter, however, was given on
either side. The work was too des
perate for that. Bayonet and bullet
did their work and the enemy was
driven back on Holders.
"A battery and several machine
pins wero captured and thousands of
prisoners were taken, including a gen
eral and several other officers."

ONE has oilly to read Dr. Withycombo's Hillsboro
speech to bo convinced thai Dr. Withycombe would
be n much moro suitablo candidate for governor of an old
Indies home than of the. state of Oregon.
The genial doctor's campaign has not added any states
manlike laurels to his brow, lie began tho campaign by
regretting that Chinese coolie labor bad been driven out
of the state in the '80's raising the issue of Chinese labor
that lias been dead for thirty years.
The next issue revived by Dr. Withycombe was "as
semblyism," and the needed "fixing" of the direct prim
ary law. Having been a candidate bofore the assembly,
wliosc avowed object was to "put the knife to the hilt"
into the Oregon system, ho defended the assembly and
attacked the primary law.
Dr. "Withycombc next attacked the proposed single
item veto, declaring it a "dangerous two-edged sword" in
the hands of the executive.
These excursions into tho realm olitical created such
a storm of opposition that the republican party managers
"corked" up the candidate, who was ordered to confine
himself to such statesmanlike subjects as the blue skies
and "vordure-elad hills of a greater Oregon and the neces
sity for hot and cold water in every farm house.
"However, Dr. Withycombc wouldn't stay bottled up.
In southcYn Oregon he again defended Chinese labor, again
defended the assembly, and
item veto, lie reaffirmed the harmony program and,
avoiding particulars, discussed generalities.
Instead of answering tho definite charges made by
Governor West of incompetency and inefficiency in office
as director of experiment stations, of waste of public funds
and needless extravagance in
failure to make good in the experiments conducted, Dr.
Withycombe says: "I forgive him, for I believe he is in
sane. What do you think of a governor who will attack
the record of a man who has lived in Oregon forty years'?"
As near as can be found out, Dr. Withycombc 's sole
qualification for office is that he has lived in Oregon for
forty years. As state veterinarian for ten years and as
director of the experiment station for sixteen years, not
only has he been well paid for living here for over a quar
ter century, but he has acquired a large personal acquaint
ance among the farmers, and having a genial personality,
was naturally selected by the politicians as a man of so
little force as to have made few enemies, a good vote-getting
candidate who would be easily manipulated, with
out being aware of it, in the executive office. Hence his
Medford had a sample of Dr. Withycombc 's statesman
ship when, uncalled for, he publicly, on the stump and in
the newspapers, fought the establishment of the public
market, predicting failure and declaring it no part of a
farmer's or producer's business to attempt to market his
produce, which should be left to the middle man. He de
clared the market was a step backward in Medford.
The people of Oregon need a real man for governor, a
real representative of the people in the battle for a better
government, a staunch believer in the people, to ward off
the attacks of privilege. They need a good fighter to com
bat legislative extravagance and corporation jobbery.
They need a militant man of backbone and firmness to en
force the law impartially. They need a man of even poise,
of sound common sense and of proven business ability.
Dr. Withycombe, though amiable and garrulous, has
none of these qualifications. A motherly old soul, he lias
no business in the chair of the chief executive of a great
state like Oregon and the best thing that could possibly
happen for Dr. "Withycombc s name and fame, is his de
feat November 3.
ONE GOOD TERM DESERVES ANOTHER
AMONG the candidates Jackson county will be called
to vote upon is one who particularly deserves re-election
II. von der Hellen of Wellen, as state senator.
Senator von der Hellen has the advantage of familiar
ity with legislative methods. He has served four years in
the senate and two in the house, and his record is a good
one untainted by scandal.
Through two sessions, Senator von der Hellen has made
the fight for good roads and is largely responsible, as
chairman of the senate highway committee, for the enab
ling act that permitted the county to use its credit -by the
issuance of bonds for highway work.
As a member of the fisheries committee he fought for
the interest of Jackson county sportsmen. In many other
ways he has been able to materially advance the county's
Senator von der Hellen secured the passage by the leg
islature of the Ashland Normal school millagc bill, upon
which the people will vote this fall.
In the fight between the legislative machine and Gov
ernor West, Senator von der Hellen usually voted with tho
governor and helped to sustain many of his vetoes. He
was not affiliated in any way with the machine, but al
ways voted according to his best judgment.
It would be a mistake to send a new man, who would
be handicapped during his first session by lack of legis
lative experience and methods. It is a distinct advantage
to have the benefit of such experience.
' Always kindly and affable, a gentleman of tho old
school, Senator von dor Hellen's representation of Jack
son county has always been creditable and deserving of
appreciation. Ho should be re-elected.
