Portland Hotel Lobbies
Are Agitating Ques
tion, Says Local
Man; Chances Seem
' Wbnn discussion regarding the
governorship, which will bo the
storm center In next year's election
nun up -where politicians fore
gsther In I'ortUnd hotel lobbies,
tbli question li being Increasingly
Interjected Into the conversatiens:
"Why not Charles Hallt"
Thli U according to 1. K. Burke,
local Insurance agent, who waa In
Portland eareral days last week at
tending tho conrentlon of New York
Life agents. Ilurke kept bis ear to
the ground, and being from Klam
ath county, now the home of Charles
Hall, ha discovered an amtilng
amount of Hall sentiment, consld
arlng tho fact that, until this v Is
published, tho local banker haa nev
er been mentioned In print as a pos
sibility. Apparently Porttanders think be
cause tho state senator from the
Coon country and president of tbo
state chamber of commerrn baa
transferred his lares and penates to
Klamath, the Klamath folk should
be wide awake to the fact that they
hsTO gubernatorial tlmbor trans
planted to thnlr midst, and shpuld
be, widely and unanimously urging
Hall to shy his chapeau Into the
ring where the castors of half a,
dosen or so of mora or less jcell
known cltliens of the commonwealth
art already reposing. .
-" .Wa ..matter ttnfut, ,HallT has
beca mentioned for tue governor-
ship In the presence of the writer
two or throa times during the past
faw weeks, but as far as can be
learned no one knowa what Hall
himself thlnka about It.
,Unfortunately. Mr. Hall left this
morning for tho Crooked Creek
hatchery with the party that went
to welcome the state fish and game
commission, and The Herald has not
ascertained just bow seriously he
would consider a raro for tho slalo's
'JThat ho would be a factor In the
race If he decided to enter cannot
bo doubted. An president of the
atato chamber of lommerce, during
a period when that organlxatlon haa
established a 100 per cent record of
tale development, bo has made a
big following of Influential Trlcnls,
widely scattered throughout the
atate. They are scattered for the
simple reason that under the Hull
administration tho state chamber of
commerce haa played no favorites
but sought to build up the state as
a whole. '
Easily tho dominant figure In the
laat leglslsturo, Senator Hall had
the support of widely dlvergont In
terests, who realised his sincerity of
purpose. He la trusted because he
Is a practical business man rather
than a politician, and capital and
labor, tho atandpattor and progres
sive, equally applaud tho way to
which the machinery of progress re
sponds when ho takea hold. Ho
wins the approval of those who like
direct methods, deploro re dtape,
and measure ability by results.
It's no suro thing that Governor
Olcott will again be a candidate. If
he desires re-election he would be
a strong opponent. With Olcott out
of tho race, there's no reason why
Hlamath abould not provide the next
governor In the person of Charles
Hall, If he Is willing.
Among others mentioned for the
office, aro Colonel Qeorge Kelly,
Portland capitalist, best known In
connection with the Booth-Kelly
Lumber company; George Baker,
mayor of Portland; Senator I. L.
Patterson, Oeorgo A. Whlto, state
adjutant general.' and T. B, Kay,
former state treasurer.'
Btoto Senator Jay Upton of Prlne
vllle would not be averse to running
if tho "call" was sufficiently strong,
and there aro soveral others In the
senator's frame- of mind.

In reference to leases In general,
the fact of their unknown value Ms
made them a medium of specula
tion wherever the test wells are
drilled. Development work, 'wher
ever carried on, attracts the atten
tion of those whoso object is to
take advantage of thsj work dona by
others by the securing of leases in
tbe vicinity of development. It to
sometimes herd for the land owner
to distinguish between tbe real op
erator who wishes to leas bis land
to begin actual development work
on It or in its neighborhood, and
the speculator who asks for his
lease with no Intention of drllMng.
Both make the same promises, and
somotlmes offer the same lease.
In giving consideration to whom
he should lease he land owner fre
quently does not apply tho same
reasoning he would devote to sobs
other business transactions. Should
he want a carpenter to build'
bouse for blm be would probably
Inquire into the ability of the car
penter to do carpenter work. Should
be made a contract with the car
penter by which the carpenter
agreed to do certain work be would
Inquire as to the reputation of the
carpenter and as to whether he was
In the practice of performing his I pioneer work of tbe oil Industry
part of "such contracts satisfactorily.
Should a lawyer suggest to tbe av
erage land owner tbe advisability of
signing a contract with blm for
house building, tho land owner
would probably bo doubtful Immedi
ately. Certainly as to tbe Iswyer's
qualifications as a bouse builder,
and probably also of his sanity.
With due respect to carpenters, the
business of drilling an oil well is
slightly mors complicated than
building a bouse. i
Tbe history df development of
nuproven fields is much tbe same.
The development work is done usu
ally with the co-operation of a
minority of intelligent land own
nrs The majority Is apathetic while
pioneer work Is In progress. There
Is always a certain number of land
owners who retard development
work and sometimes even drive It
elsewhere. By an unlntelllcent
"dog In tbe monger" attitude ther
desire their neighbor to lease while
not leasing themselves, to obtain
tbe effect of oil development at his
expense. Possibly this phase should
be expected. Tho history of the de
velopment of natural resources is
much tbe same la all Industries. All
the more credit should be paid to
the land owners who, by their co
operation, help and not hinder the

OREGON Tonight and Friday,
ANOTHER HERALD ACHIEVEMENT
When you reed aboat the Deenpary-CarpentJcr fight, did you have any
idea that oereatyvtwo hours afterwards pictures of that contest would be
In Klamath Falls? Well, that's J art what happened. Your city today Is
on a par with San Freadaro, Portland and Seattle. Through The Herald
you have been securing a service second to none on tho Pacific Coast,
and superior to that of any other city In the state ouuide of Portland.
This service has not been given Just because it was a prise fight, but
because It waa the outstanding news feature of the day. It U not the
first time The Herald has gives Its readeta the news of the day oa a
par with tbe big cities.
During the democratic and republican conventions, It gave them the
same service furnished by the metropoUUa papers. During the election
It did the saw thing. It pubUaaed the first pictures of tho great
Pueblo flood at tbo same time a did the big dallies. Its last big
service covered the greatest fistic battle of the age, and the events pre
ceding and following it, crowning that service with the greatest news
paper feat of all rhne the publication of pictures taken at the ringside
but a few hours before.
Not ta the pictures lies the story, but la the accomplishment. It
might have been an event la which every citiien la vitally mtcrested.
The readers of The Herald know that la the future they will get the
In every line there must be a dominant factor. In ever- business
there- must be a leader one that stands out from the rest. In this
city The Herald has always occupied the position of leadership. Bit
terly assailed at times, contending with competition that many thought
invincible, and before which It must succumb, it has never faltered ta
Its stand for the principles it espoused. It haa never failed to give to
ita readers just a little more than they expected.
Tbe result haa been that notwithstandlna that unwards of a Quarter
of 'a Mnliiqa dollars has been squandered la a vain attempt to establish
another daily newspaper la this city, tho efforts have failed, aad they
will continue to fail Just m long as Tho Herald pursues1 the same
policy that has mado It such a conspicuous success.
It should be a matter of pride for every resident of the county to
nave a real newspaper, because it is representative of the community
aad Incidentally each individual la it. Just as we are proud of a big
factory, or business establishment, or bank, or anything else that
deaotes community wealth, prosperity and progreus, so should we be
proud of our newspaper, for It carries onr trade mark to those on
the outside aad pcJaU the way to tbe bomesesker, the tourist, the
investor and busiaeas man. . i
