In tho present times, when the rato

of such taxation is having consider
able to do with tho Increased cost of

enforce the most rigid econqmy In
its management of public affairs.
Taxes must come down and the char
acter ot taxes must be altered. Ex
cess profit taxes in the form thoy are
now imposed play a considerable
part In keeping up prices. Business

burden upon tho people of the stnto
were abolished. Public offices where
in the traveling exnenses nlonn ran
I into thousands of dollars each year
"ere reduced in ono year over 150.-
J000. Ho then created the depart-
ment of finance, and their records
show that during the first year of
Lrfjwucn's administration the tax rnte
was reduced from 90 to 75 cents on
the ? 100 taxable valuation, which
meant a saving in that year of $4.-
000,000 to the people of Illinois. The
1919 taxes under his administration
in 1919 were reduced from 75 cents
to CO cents thereby saving tho people
Illinois anollier sum of f 4,000,000
His record in Illinois has been one
of efficiency in every department.
His political appointments have been
"quality," not "pull."
That there has been almost reck
less extravagance in the expenditure
of tho people's money during the
last few years Is generally conceded,
and the fact that Lowden stands for
a strict and careful expenditure of
tho taxpayers' money, is welcomed
by the American people. It is gen
erally conceded that during the next
four years a man ot strong ability
along theso lines must bo at the helm
of our government, for broad and
comprchenslvo action by a strong ex
ecutive along financial lines is badly
needed. Tho last three years have
beon years of tremendous public ex
penditure. Tho next four years must
bo years of careful expenditure.
Governor Lowden has stated that
"the people are taxed to death." If
the pruning knife Is not applied and
appHed' with tho strong executlvo
hands ot a man like Lowden, tho
farmer and business man, as well as
tho artisan nnd mechanic, will groan
under the heavy taxation imposed
under the forms ot state and county
taxation, income taxation, and other
taxes. In fact the heavy, indebted
ness, will become burdensome to all
classes of people. It is generally
conceded that the delegations from
Illinois, Indiana and 'Iowa will go
solidly for Lowden. The great mid
dle west is demanding a business man
once more at the helm of the national
government. It is time tha once
more a man, who will handle the
people's money, with the same care
that ho expends his own, is installed
in tho presidential chair. With near
ly halt of tho delegates from Minne
sota and Dakota still doubtful', and
Missouri and Arkansas practically
assured, It seoras that this fearless
public servant will receive the great
est award that Is now Jn hands of
tho Republican voters ta bestow upon
him, tho nomination for president of
tho United States.

An Infant Industry, which Its pro
moters expect to make one of tho
most potent factors in the agricul
tural development of the county, Is
the growing of peppermint. Roota

place at Eagle Ridge were receive
last night by Capt. J. W. Siemens,
O. W. Mattern and Jas. Watklns, Jr.,
who have associated themselves t
conduct the experiment in Mint
There are 1,200 sacks ot roots 1
the shipment', some of which are
white peppermint, a more produetvlq
species than the green mint. They
will be planted at once and the pro
moters expect to gather their first
crop this year. They have an option
on 220 .acres of land and if the first
season proves successful expect to
put the entire tract in mint.
Other marsh land owners are
watching the experiment with inter

of acres, both on the upper and 'lower

Captain Siemens waxed seriously
enthusiastic over the venture this

"We have the most adaptable land
in the country for mint culture," he
said, "thousands upon thousands ot
acres ot it. We are not going into
this hurriedly, but our decision was
formed after nearly a year's Investi

will be successful, and from the In
formation that I have obtained in

my investigations, it reaulres n

day coming when Klamath county
