Support the Entire Party Ticket
Ifs Coolidge—Make It Unanimous
Every indication shows overwhelming sentiment for Coolidge. The Literary Digest straw vote, both in
this state and the nation, shows him at this writing leading his nearest opponent by more than two to one.
In urging votes for Coolidge, we ask Oregon citizens to elect to the congress men who will aid the
President in carrying out his policies, men who acknowledge party responsibility, men who will keep faith
with the people in carrying out the platform pledges.
You Will Find Those Men On The Republican Ticket
■ •
Senator McNary deserves'Te-election. He has accomplished much for Oregon. Congressmen Hawley and Sinnott
should be returned because of service to their state. Maurice. E. Crumpacker, candidate for the seat of the democratic
incumbent in the third district, should receive the votes of all republicans.
Restore This State to Control of the Dominant Party
It is important that all good citizens vote for Sam A. Kozer, candidate for re-election as secretary of state, and
Thomas B. Kay, candidate for state treasurer, because their election will restore the affairs of Oregon, a strongly
republican state, to republican control.
Through the accident of death, the governor has named his own state treasurer. This is an elective office and the
people- had elected a republican ..treasurer. By the appointment, Governor Pierce seized power not his by right and
thereby dominates the state board of control. The balance will be restored by election of Kozer and Kay.
Other Candidates, Too, Are Worthy of Voters’ Support
Judge Harry H. Belt, of Polk county, and Judge Percy R. Kelly, of Linn county, are both able jurists and candidates
of the party for justices of the supreme court, Judge Kelly being a candidate to succeed the late John McCourt. Both
are eminently qualified.
I. H. VanWinkle, candidate for re-election as attorney-general; H. H. Corey, candidate for re-election as public
service commissioner; Edward Ostrander, candidate for public service commissioner; and J. D. Mickle, candidate for
re-election as state dairy and food commissioner, as well as the complete legislative and full county tickets, vouched for
by the republican par t y, m worthy- of support and deserve your votes.

Republican Party Has Saved
Big Sums to American
Portland, Or.—(Special )—Whep
President Coolidge said in his speech
of acceptance that finances of tbb
country have been managed by the
Republican administration ' with a
genins unmatched since the days of
Hamilton, he meant Juot what he said
and gave facts and figures to prove it,
I. L. Patterson, chairman of the Re­
publican State Central committee, de­
clared In a statement given out here.
When it came into office, he said,
the Republican party inherited a leg­
acy of debt that stood at about >24,-
000,000,000, of which 17,000,000,009
was in short term obligations to meet
which no provision had been made.
Government bond* were far below par
and war taxes still plagued the people.
More than >11,000,000,000 were due
the United State* from foreign coun­
tries. The whole people were suffer­
ing from a tremendous deflation.
Mopey was scarce and interest rates
An unprecedented financial
problem was presented to the Incom­
ing administration. The sums to be
dealt with were so huge that never
before In world history were debts of
such proportions to be paid.
The administration promptly pro­
vided a budget system and put It into
operation. This was the keystone tn
the arch of Republican finances that
was to bridge the chasm of debt. Tre­
mendous savings were effected by it.
For the fiscal year ending June 39.
1921, the expenditures of the govern­
ment were >5,533,000,000 and the sur­
plus was >36,000.000. Contrasted with
that waa the year ending Juno 30,
1924, when expenditures were >3,497,-
000,000 and the surplus exceeded >500,-
000,900- This wee a cut In the annual
cost of government of >2,041,000,009.
The public debt has been cut to
about >31,250,000,009, a reduction In
three years of about >2.750,000,000,
which means a savin« la Interest each
year of about >>20,009,090.
The ohort-tlme abliggtioas amount­
ing to >7,900,900,000 have been either
refunded or paid. Together with all
this. Internal revenue taxes have been
reduced twice and many of them re­
During the present fiscal
year, there will be a saving of taxes
to the people of about >8,000,000 every
day, compared with 1921.
Of the amount of debts due thia
country from foreign governments, 49
per cent have been liquidated and
will provide funds for the retirement
of about >13,000.090,009 of the prin­
cipal of our national debt In 62 years.
During the Republican four years
now ending, the government has taken
a notable step toward economy of ad­
ministration. as shown in another way.
In 1921, the last pre budget year, of
the cost of government collected fn
national, state and municipal taxes,
after debt payments, federal .expendi­
tures were 59 per cent of the total
and those of the states, cities and
towns 41 per cent.
But in 1923 the federal government
took only 28 per cent of the taxes and
72 per cent were spent by the states,
cities and towns. These bodies were
showing increasing expenditures, al­
though the federal government has
set an example of economy.
Per capita expensee of the gevern-
ment In the fiscal year of 1910 were
but >7.74. In the peak year of 1919,
when public expense touched Its high­
est level, this figure had grow* to
the astonishing figure of >173.64. For
last year, they sen k back to >33.44, a
very gratifying improvement over the
post war year.
Without the budget, the saving*
that were effected would never have
been realized. It brought order wfyere
canfusion had been before. It pro­
vided for the balancing of revenues
and expenditures and lighted the way
out of the financial swamps.
War Costs Slashed.
Business-like methods by the Repub­
lican administration has saved >85,-
