VWhoro aro you coins to stand this

united support of Klamath county.
Ho Is a poor campaigner. Wo must
do the campaigning tor him. Wo
must work tor our Interests, tor our
county, for our city, for oursolves.
With a practically unanimous tote
and we cannot conceive ot n alnglo
reason why anyone should vote
against Mr. Wiley he will win the
nomination. Ills opponent, Mr. Jay
Upton, I a iwmnni'il politician anil
campaigner, nnd ho has been making
an alr-ttght campaign throughout
the district. Ho should mako no
headway In Klamath, tat us stand
by the homo man. Let us stand by
Klamath county, tat us tor onco

thing and everyone who will help
Klamath county. For the state, leg
islature Wiley Is our man; ho Is our
friend, our fellow cltlten, a man ot
whom wo cm bo proud, who will
be loyal to his friends, his neighbors,
his trust. Let every voto for stato
senator that Is cast In Klamath coun

Thcse questions are pertinent at

The following letter was received

SInnott's close friends, most ot his

so far as the west Is concerned. 'Let
us show htm by our votes that we
want him to stay there; to keep his
eye on our Interests; to work for the
district In general, and Klamath
