OF" THEIR 8PEECIIES DIMICKS
EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD .SPEECH.
.The Joint ran vans of the candidates
on the Marion county, .tickets was" op
ened at 1 o'clock yesterday at Turner,
The Republicans having the first forty
minutes, the meeing" was called. to or
rfler by W. J. Culver, chairman of the
Marlon f county ! Republican central
committee, wno Introduced Frank Dav
ey, candidate on the Republican ticket
for the Legislature, who had been chos
i to make the first speech.
1 Mr. DaVey said It was the purpose of
the joint canvass, as far as the Repub
cans . axe concerned, to . enter into a
gentlemanly discussion, of the: issues
wt the campaign Jtrom a business stand
point. He, aald it was important that
Oregon should endorse the administra
tion at Washington by electing: the
state,, district and county Republican
tickets. .He took up the Republican &te
' platform; and explained rta Important
features. He showed ttiat it , faVfrs
protection to American industries; a.
direct primary law, the proposed inl-i
tlatlve and referendum amendment: to
Jihe Constitution,, Chinese exclusion, the
right of laborers to organise, .etc. He
said everyone of the Republican candi
dates stands nquarely on this platform.
J Mr. Davey then took up the declara-t.
tion of principles of the Marion cou;i
fy Republican convention. Showed that
t favors nxed salaries, direct nomina
tion, etc., and declared that the Repub
J lican,' candidates; are also In Accord with
the sentiments thus voiced. j
He referred to the fact that Marion
' county, is out of debt and has a nur
plus in the treasury. He said the re
cent reductions in expenditures In Maf
rion county had resulted from Repub
lican pledges faithfully kept. He
pledged the present candidates to a
continuance of the present economical
. methods, ilind promised a reduction In
the levy j In future years; there being
no interest to pay no i j
: He referred to the fact that the total
expenditures 'of, Marion county, In
round numbers, have been '-as. follows::
For 1894 ..............$"3,000
For 1895 70.000 ; !
, For 1896 76.000 t
For 1897 80,000
For 1898 ....... .?.v. . ,.71,000
For 1899 ...... 61.000
For 1900 ...,52.000
For. 1901 57.000
This makes a splendi-V showing for
Republican ' economy and - business
methods during the paut three years.
The increase for 1901 was occasioned
by the expense of the .small pox carts
and unusual .amount paid out for, per
manent road and bridge work. j
Mr. Davey said ths present tax Uw
' placts an unwarranted burden upon tne
- poor man in favor of thm rich, man, toy
allowing the latssr rebato of I per
cent on account of fcls taxes,, and, fln
Injr th man who cannot make the first
payment 19 per cant, bsides IS per
cent Interest until paid. He said this
vlw needs amending.- f

He said a prominent Democrat had
offered to bet a new hat with him that
Chamberlain would carry Marion coun
ty. The man said, w are going to
carry Marion county for Mf. Chamber
lain' by 1000 votes the "we" referring
to the Democratic party. Mr. Davey
showed., how ever, that the-normal Re
publlcarfvmajority In Marion county is
600 at least, and that the "w" will
properly; refer to the Republicans, in
case the county Is rtot carried for, Mr.
FurnishJ , Can "we" Republicans
afford ,jto give, "we Demo
crats the credit they would
fondly hug to their bosoms in such an
event. Ho said every-Republican 'was
In duty hound. In all conscience, to see
: that such a. consummation was made
Impossible." . . '
:' i ' j - E. M. Croisan.
E. M.' Croisan. Republican candidate
for Senator, was the npet speaker.'
Mr. Croisan spoke as follows: "As
you are all aware, I. am not a public
speaker but as I am before the peo
ple of Marlon county as a candidate for
State Senator, it Is only right and pro
per that I should stae what I will; do
If elected to the Legislature. I shall
vote for a law placing all of our state
- officials1 upon reasonable, flat salaries,
and I am In favor of repealing ail fees
and perquisites pertainSnjr to euta of

I believe it to be a wool Jw

and 4h rates of Interest and panalty

Mr. CroiMfi proceeded in conrluston
to d S silh-'t:e' c!rc.!3f- lntr E'ct
out against him concerning bis fes by
his opponent, U, II. McMahan. He
stated that he made his accounts cut
inz-detail and submitted them to the
county court, and commissioners. That
he bad an understanding with them
that he was to receive 60 cents f.r tak
ing hobos out to work and 50 cents for
returning them to JalL He said that
sometimes there would be two- or
three and a few more, perhaps -six cr
seven occasionally, and the law provid
ed that these vagrants should be work
ed on the highway in charge of the
sherifr. but it did not provide for fur
nishing guard, and so the court agreed
to allow him CO cents for dlscharging
and SO cents for recommitting, each
prisoner so worked by him on the high
way, and be was himself to pay the
guarda, . v- t: , .
He said ' his opponent bad published
about the1 largest one of the bills and
that his opponent was seeking to take
an unfair; advantage of him before the
people, inasmuch os'he had submitted
all of his bills in itemised form to the
county court and commissioners ond
that, body had the opportunity to in
vestigate bis accounts item by item.
beJTore approving them that nothing
was .concealed.?! j' dip iU'i'- " t--
Mr. Croisan referred to his emolu
ment return as filed with the Secre
tary, of State each six months of the
four years that he war sheriff, and he
stated that his opponent had hot treat
ed him fairly . when he published bis
emolument, returns and did not publish
his expense accounts, which were re
ported at the same time,! - r
;Mr. Croisan Showed from the record
that he drew - from the county -during
his two terms of office $26,665.34; that
his total expense" account during the
same period r ws IKJ74.50. thus
leaving him a net salary for thp entire
four years of 89,890.84, which is less
than the present salary allowed to the
sheriff's office under the salary law.
That the remainder of the money he
made was by fees paid ? blm by 11 tl
gants for serving; and executing .their
papers, and did not cost Marlon county
a cent. '- -: - ';t::- ! - .
After fully explaining I the J charges
In the circular letter to the apparent
satisfaction of the audience, he con
cluded by saying that he thought Mr.
McMahan could interest the voters cf
Marion county-a great deal more than
he had done by this circular letter, by
explaining to them how'h? made the
money pn which he took bis Suroriwm
tour in 1897. soon after the hold-up
Legislature of that year adjourned. He
said this would b; -the more interest
ing because his opponent's name did
not appear upon the tax roll for that
year, and fa not now upon the tax roll,
and it certainly cost two or three thou
sand dollars to make that foreign trip
through the European countries. -i
He said he had understood that h4
opponent' claimed that 'he -went on a
flh hook expedition, but that he had
never heard of his sdting nny of them
In Eq.rope or of his raising nny money
on hm flh hooks. j - :' ;
This raised a laugh and Mr. Croisan
was heartily cheered by the crowd.
Squire Farrar. candidate ori the R?-
publlcan ticket for Senator, being rail
ed upon,' made a neat speech.. He de
clared himself In favor of a direct pri
mary law; said the Government could
not get too close to the people. Mr
Farrar declared himself in favor of the
Republican platform and declaration of
principles as a whole, t ;
' s J. B. Dimick.
Hon. J. B. Dimick,- of Hubbard,
candidate for Senator on the Democrat
ic ticket, was the first speaker for his
side. The writer has heard Mr. Dim
ick biennially for. eighteen years,' at
the opening of the campaigns at the
town o Turner. Mr: Dtmlck in that
time has been on all the tickets. "He
has been defeated every time, except
ing once, when he ran for Seoator'on
th Republican ticket. In, Its) essenxial
features, hs has always made the same
speech. He made the same old speech
again yesterday the same "nigger
story, the sarns everything; , the same
waving of the arms and stamping of
the feet. The "nigger- story is about
the Georgia darkey who ; went to the
election. On his way borne he met an
other darkey. The. first -one told the
second one they were having an elec
tion down town. -'What dey bavin
lection foh?" asked the second darkey.
I don' know what dey havln 'lection
for now," answered the first darkey,
"but when I was dah dey was havln' It
fob two ! dollars'" In Justice to Mr;
Dimick, however, t should bo said
that he had a new dag story yesterday
r-at least one that he has not told for
the past eighteen years. In succession.
Mr. Dimick said that he helped to
repeal Hhe vagrant law in. the session
of 1899. He did. not mention, however.
whether he helped to pass it in 189 1;
he was In that session.. j . ;
W. T. Slater. 'T
w T. HlafM-. candidate for the Lee
Islature on the Democratic, ticket, ad
mitted that Marion county s anairs art
in rhnd ahane. But be insisted that It
does not do much good for this county
to economise and keep down expenses
whn fh whiriTjool of corruption in the
Legislature foists such heavy exoendi-
tures upon the.staie mm w
la kept high and Increasing" notwlth
standing. Mr. Slater took a shot at the
present tax law, lie snowea mai me
law fines the poor man 19 per cent for
being poor, for the benefit of the full
handed 3 per cent in rebate to the
rofc io twt rent nenalty. and t ' per
cent Interest for six. months, or at the
rate of 18 -per cent ror leierrea iy-

' : A VI 1 I .C" V- " . j
Democratic candidate for the Legisla
ture, was the next speaker, tie at
tempted to Show that there is no real
difference In the platforms of the two
parties; tried to prove the Philippine
plank of the Democratic platform an
Innocent one and In accordance with
the Declaration of Independence; tried
to! show, that here is no. real differ
ence between tariff for protection and
a tariff for revenue only. He woefully
hnv two Drooosi t Ions. He
red a declaration of principles he has
'gotten up for hirpseii, inciua.n
mum freight and passenger rates, pre
:iact assessors, a better tax law, flat
Ssaiiries, good roads and the Initiate
and referendum. He declared himself
as opposed to the caucus metnoas.
: ' John A. Jeffrey.
V ilohn A. Jeffrey, ' Democratic candi
date for Joint Senator from Marion
and Linn counties', was the next speak
er. He declared himself the candidate
r-r tMs c '"-e cf tie Denocnts, r.ero?-
icans. Populists and Spoialists. Mr.
Jeffrey's speejeh was full of glittering:
generalities, jreferences. , to( beautiful
sunsets, splendid :, resources, asphodel
pathways and sweet scented rose bow
ers and other splendid v and pleasins
things. It was oily and slick, and cal
culated to tickle the vanity and Swell
the pride, and Incidentaily io catch the
vote of the thisive - voters Mr. Jeffrey
Is not going to offend anyone in this
campaign.' - '
The Republicans had twenty minutes
in which to close. Ed, T. Judd, Repub
lican candidate for the Legislature, was
called ; out. He made a pleasing
speech. He said the Republicans may
not be aa prolific of promise as the
Democrats, tout they keep their prom
ises.. - Krr - If ' v'-- ;:-;--Uy-- s4':--.
The Last Shots. ' . .. ,.
; Frank ' Davey was the last speaker.
Reference had been made to -Simon
Republican tools." ? Mr. Davey said he
had. noticed that when'Mr.. Simon" could
not get Republican tools to do his work
he could alWays find them among; the
Democrats, as during this' campaign.
Reference had been made In the neech
of Mr. Dimkk to the absence of Hon.
J. M; Poorman and Chat. A. Murphy
from, the ticket this year. Mr. Davey
declared. ! however, that -thesev gentle
men coud be found standing shoulder to
shoulder with all loyal V members cf
their party in support of the Republi
can ticket. I He made ridiculous the at
tompt of Mr. Tomlinson io prove that
there Is no: difference between the
Democratic! plank for a tariff for rev
enue only and the Republican declara
tion for a jtariff:for revenue and pro
tection. At several points In the clos
ing speech; gumming up the arguments,
Mr. Davey was heartily cheered.
An the : Republican and Democratic
candidates with one br two exceptions
are on the); joint -canvass. .Those who
were absent yesterday . w!lK nodoubt

and especially encouraging to the Re
publican dandtf dates, v-.. H
At Marfon in .he afternoon Mr.
Croisan called upon Mr. Cornelius, who
was one f the county commissioners
at the time, to confirm his explanation
of the hobo matter, as he had . made it
at Turner Mr- Cornelius did this.,
In the evening1 the prlflcl pal Republi
