Under tho nbovo hoadllnoa tio Oro
Bonlan this morning r"lnts tho fol

Salom, Or., Sopt. 22. (To tho
Editor.) On Sunday, Soptomber 18,
on pago llvo, tho Orronlan published
a leftor from L, II. McMuhuh, digni
fied In tho hoadllnoa by being oallod
"Spoclflo chargos mado against tho
Salom editor and politician." "Do
lnros that Hofor Is plainly it graftor
nd Invites thin candldato to bring
ult Tor criminal libel." You also ro
Sirlnt my lottor of July 25, In which
I Bald that "I think It is tho duty of
any oltlzon If ho has a porsonal expe
rience with a graftor to give tho cold,
hard facta without roforrlng tho pub
lic to other pooplo," I still stand by
that position takon In my lotttor of
.July 25, and call your attontlon to tho
fact that McMnhan stutos no facta of
Ihls own -personal knowledge His
Hotter Is mado up of roforencos In
stead of alleging tho specific chargos,
Ho reftes to othor people who claim
to have had dealings with tho Capital
Journal ovor a period of moro than
20 yoara. During all that time I was
editor of the papor and my brothor,
A. F. Hofor, was business manager.
Tho nearest that McMahon comes to
charging mo with being n graftor
from hla own iirsonal knowledge la
I where ho says in tho next to tho last
paragraph that a client of his was
compelled to pay ?25 to tho Capital
Journal, that bolng paid to my brother
as business manager. I arn willing
to assumo all responsibility, oven for
anything wrong that my brothor did,
but my brothor Is not running for
lateineuts1 False and Malicious.
I, ha,vo spoken from flvo to 10 times
a day to audlonces In this city during
tho past woek In closing my cam
paign, and at rnch mooting I have In
vited pooplo to ask mo questions ns
to my public and prlvato character. I
have mot with from two to llvo thou
sand people; dally, and at pono of
those meetings has my prlvato or pub
lic character boon called In question.
I wish now to brand as falso and ma
licious tho ontlro publication made In
tho Oregonlan ovor tho slgnaturo of
McMnhan, and want especially to call
your attontlon to tho following para
graph of tho McMahan letter:
"First, thon, I roltorato tho state
ment that Mr. Hofor has In this com
munity tho reputation of bolng a
graftor. If Mr". Ilofor will suo mo for
making theso statomonts I will estab
lish tho truth thoreof by calling as
witnesses all mombors of tho supremo
court, tho iclrcult Judged of this dis
trict, all of the state, county nnd city
officials, tho clorgymon ami business
men of Salom."
Accusations Not Sustained.
No ono has sustained tho accusa
tions made In tho nbovo statement
that I am a graftor by a slnglo ono of
tho gontlomon nbovo referred to. I
havo lived In Salom ovor twenty
years, I havo fought many hard po
litical battlos thoro, and yet not a
slnglo cltlzon cornea forward with
tho atatomont to sustain your charge
I sont a ropresentntlvo to tho judgos
of tho supreme court, and each ono
sopnrntoly said ho was propared to
glvo mo a cortlflcato of eharactor of
tho vory highest order, and I pursuod
tho mattor no furthor. Each of tho
Justices said ho had never talkod with
McMahan about mo, that McMahan
had never talkltl with anyone of 'thorn
, concerning mo, nnd all docldod thoy
had novor boon "grafted" ono dollar

or one penny by tho Capital Journal
and that my character was only of the
Replying to Specific Charges.
McMahan charges that about 20
years ago In tho city election I ex
tracted ?50 from someone when
Claud Gatch nnd Napoleon Davis
woro running for mayor. I do not
remember the circumstances, but It
any money was paid, It was part of
tho slush fund In tho political cam
paign aB campaigns wero conducted
In thoso days. If I can Judge by
tholr utterances, the two gentlemen
roforred to aro both my friends and
supporters In my canlpalgn for gov
ornor. If George S. Downing was
ever asked for $90 in tho shape of a
graft by mo he can say so under his
own slgnaturo. AVe havo boon
warm friends nnd are to this day,
and he can choose between mo and
the assailant of my character as to
which of us Is an honest man.
The Clininbcrlnln Incident.
Your Informant charges that Gov
ornor Chamberlain's friends bought
tho support of the Capital Journal
for JGOO when he ran for govornor
against Furnish. In that campaign
I decided to support Governor Cham
berlain personally and In my news
paper I so Informed Governor Cham
berlain before tho campaign was
opened. D. J. Fry and Fred Steus
loft were members of Governor
Chamberlain's campaign committee.
After telling Governor Chamberlain
that I and m brother would vote
for him and that my newspaper
would editorially support him, the
campaign committee thon wanted a
page In my newspaper every day In
the advocacy for Governor Chamber
lain's election. Ho used thousands of
extra papers, as he had a perfect right
to do. Prominent Republicans con
tribute articles and helped fill the
pago every day to , aid Governor
Chamberlain. I think the bills
against that committee, which aro a
mattor of public record on the books
of tho Capital Journal and are open
to any court, amounted to $500 and
perhaps more. Thoro was no cor
rupt practice act in that day. The
wholo matter ,was an open transac
tion. Any citizen can call upon
Govornor Chnmborlaln or Judge Ca
tena nnd ask them about this mat
ter. Yon, or any other man, can ask
thorn as to tholr experience with me
and with McMnhan, and I invito you
to print the statement ot Judge Ga
tons or Governor Chamberlain as to
my eharactor or McMahan's ns to
who Is nn honest man.
The Cornelius Charge.
Tho Oregonlan allows this McMa
han, to whom no public man with
whom, ho has over had any dealings
In this state will, glvo a certificate
of eharactor, to charge .that I trl?d
to' bribe Marshal Cornelius of till?
city. 1 will closo my campaign at'
Salom with llvo public meotlngs on
Friday nnd Mr. Cornelius can appear
at thoso meetings and stato whether
this Is true or not. I havo nlway3
been his friend nnd supporter when
ho was city marshal and I supported
him In ovory act In his ofllcial ca
reer. If ho had done anything dis
honorable, I never hoard ot It. I
nnd no occasion to bribe him ber
causo ho and Mayor AVaters and I
wero lntlmnto friends and I would
not havo had to glvo him $G0 a
months to do nnything In his ofllcial
capacity. Under his administration
wo closod tho saloons In tho city of
Salom on Sunday, and did other
things to mnko It a cleaner city.
I will not answer McMnhan ion the
charge that I aworo falsely as to
tho circulation ot my newspaper. Ho
was runnings n nowspnper at that
tlmo nnd was defoated In n contest
for tho county printing. The man
ho refers to ns n witness Is dead.
The mattor was threshed out In the
county court in a trial 20 yoara ago
and was decided ngalnst McMahan.
Nothing furthor need bo said. That
MoMahan's attack on mo la mall
clous Is proven by tho fact that It
waB not published until the Sunday
boforo tho prlmnry election. Ho has
had many yenra to go before tho peo
ple with hlB charges. Ho waited un
til I was recommended for the office
of Internal Rovenuo Collector. Ho
waited until flvo daya boforo tho pri
mary. Ho hnd three months to get
Into tho voter's pamphlet whero 1
havo a pago ns the . anti-assembly
candldato for govornor, and state at
tho ond or It that I challenge any
ono to review my publlo and private
career. If ho had facts to substan
tiate sorloua chargos against my
character ho had a right under thft
Corrupt Practice Act to go Into thnt
pnmphlet nnd warn tho voters ot this
stato against me, which he did not
exerclso. This attack In tho closing
daya of tho primary campaign la ma
licious undor tho laws of thla state
and I will give him or any other
mnn tho fullost opportunity to np
ponr in tho courts nnd nllow my

mistakes in over 20 years of active
Journalism and political work, but
that I havo earned the reputation
which he has sought to give me 1
I wish to state further that Mc
Mnhan showed his letter making tho
charges against me to prominent cit
izens of Salem, bankers, lawyers and
printers, who are my friends and
several warned mo a month In ad
vance thnt It would be published.
They told mo what would be charged
therein. McMahan's reasons for do

Republican Direct Primary Candidate for Representative.
G. . iTOHNSON.
I came to Marlon county with my pa-ents in 1S4 7, and have resided In
this immediate vicinity nearly the entire time. For twenty-eight years
I havo conducted a clothing store In balem under the name of G. W.
Johnson & Co. I hue always been a Republican, and havo never boforo
asked the party for any favor. Thi3 year there is an issue before us.
It is either the Assembly, or the Direct Primary method. I am opposed
to the Assembly, and if you are Interested as I am in promoting the wel
fare of our party you will vote for tUso candidates, who, as myself, favor
the direct primary vi hnut evasion 'r subterfuge.
If I am nominated and elected I will during my term of offlco faith
fully represent the Interests of my constituents to the best of my ability,
and will support tho direct primary law and Statement No. 1, nnd will
oppose the assembly method of nominations. G. W. JOHNSON.
Tom Kay, anti-assembly Republican candidate for Stato Treasurer, has
been a member of the Oregon Legislature for the past eight years, and has
an excellent record.
He was the author of the Flat Salary bill, which saves the stato over
$35,000 a year. Also, an active supporter of the Corporation Tax law,
which brings in over $150,00 annually, 'and of the Inheritance Tax law
which brings to the state 560,000 annually.
On account of his persistent opposition to clerkship extravagance and
unnecessary appropriations, he was known as
"The V-'p.ich-Dofj of the Treasury."
And was frequently referred to as such by various papers in the state
Tho Raker City Herald bus the following to say: "The most prominent
watch-dog In the house at this session of the Legislature Is Hon. T. B.
Kay, of Marlon. He not only objet ts to measures carrying appropriations
that aro not of real interest but bavks up his position with a tenacity of
purpose. Wh'lo he has failed in some instances in gnlnlng his point, he
has succeeded Jn raving the taxpayers many thousands of dollars."
