Tho Klumuth Fulls Republican says
thut J. R. Whitney is the only candi
date for state printer thut does not
promise tho elimination of graft lu
thut office. Mr. Whitney has ably and
honestly conducted thut office for one
term and knows there Is no graft to
eliminate, and no one has heard of
any graft there during Mr. Whitney's
term of office until other candidates
for the position have undertaken to
wrest the job from him, and used the
old and worn-out "graft" club as a
campaign slogan. Those who have
made the charge of graft in the state
printing office do not attempt to prove
their assertion, but simply go ou re
peating the charge. . It is an ugly
method of securing a position aud
should not be resorted to unless those
making the charge can, aud do, show
thut their stutmouts are well founded.
Mr. Whitney, having been one of the
plain, honest men of the state, does
not think bin das of people, which
represent a majority at the polls, can
be diiK;d, by selfish assertion, to
commit a wrong by voting to oust
one of Jheir number from a position
he has honestly gained and has no
honestly filled that none other than
those who seek to oust him can see
reasons why he should not tie accord
ed the same privilege every other man
in like positions have received at the
will of the people, that of a second
nomination. We do not ask a single
man to vote for Mr. Whitney, he re
ceived every lU-publican vote in the
county when he was elected to the
place without solicitation. They vot
ed for him license they believed him
an honest and capable man, and un
less it has been proven to them that
he is not, they certainly do not regret
their choice. A great deal of respon
sibility rests upon the voter in casting
his ballot for state officers who he
does not personally know, and know
to be honest and capable men. The
voters, a big majority of them in the
county, took a chance with Mr. Whit
ney. Now the question is, do they
know that their judgment was wrong?
Did they make a mistake? Ia any
Lake county Republican ready to ac
knowledge that he made a mistake,
upon briing told bo by some man
whose motives are purely selfish?

Good Men Have Served in
County Court Since
OREGQNIAN IGNORES SERVICES.
fieri Who Have Served Were as
Good Men as Can be Found
In the State.
It is rank injustice to assert that
Northern Lake County has not had a
representative in the county court for
ten years, as the Silver Lake Oregon
ian stated recently. A. V. Lane, W.
O. Hough, Geo. L. Gilfry, J. M. Mar
tin and W. A Currier, all Northern
Lake County men, are as good men aa
the county ever had, either in office
or out. These men have served in
the county court in the last ten years,
and no county in the state or no pre
cinct in this county can boast of bet
ter representation. These men, all
that are living of them, will certainly
feel hurt to knew that the service they
have rendered has been ignored. The
Silver Lake Oregonian in taking the
initial step in politics of the season
should refrain from casting stigma
upon the good men who have so ably
and assiduously labored for the inter
eets of the section of the county that
paper pretends to represent. Not a
political line has been cast by any of
the papers in the county till the Ore
gonian made its debut. Look over
the records Bro., and see where
Northern Lake haa been represented
in the county court every year since
the county waa orgun'zed, . t-n-J by
good men. We are not saying, how
ever, that it was undeserved, but
simply holding up for the good men'
who have' devoted their time to tho
welfare of Lake county as a whole.

Ceese Became Blind.
A strange story comes from Warner
valley that the geese became totally
blind during certain intervals of the
recent storm in that section. Parties
said as a general thing the geese were
very wild and difficult to approach,
but at times anyone could ride or
walk amongst them without their ap
parently noticing him. The geese
seemed loathe to fly even when they
became aware of the presence of per
Bons. Their actions caused a great
deal of comment until it was decided
the geese were blind. Some man In
Warner, whose name we did not
learn, Is said to huve gone out hunt
ing geese, and not having become
aware of the sudden strangeness of
the birds upon seeing a band soma
distance away began to exercise his
knowledge of strategic maneuvering
to gain close quarters. He succeeded
in getting near enough to shoot and
blazed both barrels of his shot gun
into the flock, to his amazement not
a goose moved and he thought he bad
killed the entire band. He walked up
to thorn and found that they were all
frozen stiff, and dead.
