SAYS STATEMENTS FALSE i Judges of Supremo Court Declare They AVero Never drafted Oth er Accusations Considered and Explained. Under tho nbovo hoadllnoa tio Oro Bonlan this morning r"lnts tho fol lowing lottor from Col. Ilofor: 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 govornor. 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 Marion County Republican Assembly Ticket State Senators Dr. J.

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 Dr. Lyon's PERFECT Tooth Powder is packed in a dust-tight metal box, with patent measuring tube, which is both safe and convenient for tourists.

Perhaps I may have made 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 deny. 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 ing this aro apparent and you can draw your own conclusions. B. HOFER. o X-RAYS AND SMILES. ..
