Police Row and Politics
A COMPETENT Salem observer; lists as one of the
major mistakes in Mayor Mahoney'a governorship
campaign the fact that he became involved m tne ponce
eharitv fund affair here.
While ultimately the police row might have the
ffect of helping the mayor with some people wno
might believe he is being plotted against by political
enemies, this observation is worthy of consideration.
Any discussion, of course, must first recognise the fact
that there has been no proof in court of diversion of
funds, nor any proof that such diversion woiua oe a
misdemeanor. We are here interested, not in guilt or
innocence of any one, but in the political effect of this
, To be fair to the mayor, it should be said that there
has been no evidence thus far that he knew definitely
of any transfer of funds from the charity fund to his
campaign chest, nor that he urged or sanctioned such a
business. Thus, he may have been the victim of cir
cumstances not his own making.
On the other hand, it may be argued that the mayor
was warned of reports of the charity fund situation in
ample time to investigate before the grand jury mok
up the matter. If the mayor trusted the wrong man
In his investigation, that of course was his own mistake.
It is not known how much Mr. Mahoney may have had
' to do with it, but it is quite certain that there was
fostered among members of the police department a
belief that those who helped the mayor toward the gov
ernorship would be amply rewarded, if and wnen tne
goal was attained. What goes on in the police depart
ment is part of the mayor's responsibility, and the de
partment was headed by his major political appointee
and, at that time, close confidante.
Those are the facts as they have come to light thus
far. The reader may judge for himself what their
effect may be, or deserves to be, on the governorship
chances of Mayor Mahoney. Many will probably agree
that the stakes were ridiculously small to be gambled
for by anyone as politically shrewd as Mayor Mahoney.
For Wider Support
a EDNESDAY, April 18, has been designated as city
W wide chamber of commerce day. On that day,
an intensive effort will be made to build up the chamber
membership nearer the point where, on the basis of the
organization's goals and accomplishments, it deserves
,t0 Those in a position to know say that the Klamath
County Chamber of Commerce is one of the two or
three best chambers in the state. It is alert and active,
and few even in this community realize the scope and
detail of its work.
In fact, there has crown uo a custom of taking the
chamber of commerce for granted. The very consistency
of its efforts may be partially responsible for this, for
the chamber is always on the jod ana tnereDy wears a
groove for itself in the community consciousness.
But the truth of the matter is, the chamber of com
merce now needs stronger support the sort of support
that will come from a wider membership. During the
past two or three tough years there has been a slump
in membership, as was to be expected. But during those
years the chamber has kept to its effective work, and
now with conditions improving it finds itself jn a posi
tion where it needs help.
Hence, the membership drive on April 18. Between
now and that time the story of much of the chambers
work will be presented to the public. We believe those
- who give their attention to that story will be convinced
that the chamber's bid for wider support is justifiable.
