During the canvass of the county for
the republican nomination for district
attorney, 1 have been continuously ask
ed this question: "Where do you stand
upon, our new prohibition law?" I
have been asked tlita question numer
cifcsiy both by those who favor the law
and those who oppose it. And since I
find that the. "people generally want to
know where the candidates stand upon
this question, I take this means of mak
ing my position known.
If nominated and elected district at
torney for .Marion county I shall do all
in my power to enforce this law, and 1
make this statement publicly through
the press, so that there muy be no mis
understanding as to my attitude to
wn his matter. This iaw was placed
upon our statute books by a tremend
nous majority of the people, and should
1)9 enforced as honestly and conscien
tiously as any law of this slate. And
the person who doesn't want it en
forced should not vote for, me for dis
Mv opponents say I will prosecute
"too hard." That they are "safer."
Thanks for the compliment! I will
prosecute as hard as I can violaters of
all laws without discrimination. I did
not suppose that this would be an is
Hue in this campaign. I supposed that
questions had been settled and that all
candidates for this office would be will
ing to enforce this law fearlessly and
(hat the question might be Settled
strictly upon the basis of efficiency.
But I find that those who are opposed
to the enforcement of this law are as
bttfcy as ever. They are centralizing
their forces behind one candidate who
ueoms to have promised them that they
need not fear his activities. Since the
issue hns been made by those who seem
to be unable to give up, I have uo hes
itancy in announcing my position in ref
erence thereto. I am not on'.y willing
to enforce this law, but I have had
con'.rablc experience along that line
and believe thnt if nominated and elect
ed, I will be able to enforce it. I have
acted as special prosecuting attorney
in several counties under the local
option law, and my record there shows
that I was not only willing, but did en
force that law. If you believe that this
new law should receive 'fair and honest
consideration and fearless enforcement,
along with the other criminal laws of
this state, I earnestly solicit your sup
port at the republican primaries May

ANNUAL MAY PARTY

A. J. ANDERSON
Candidate for Republican nomination
for County Assessor. Ballot No. 72.
SALEM ICE CO
Pure Distilled Water Ice.
Fellow Tnxpnycr: A large portion of
the expeuHe of conducting the county
assessor's office in chargeable to annual
field assesameut work. A great saving
could bo made by cutting down assess
ment of property values to once in four
This is only one of tho many tax
reforms which I have in mind and will
advocate if nominated for and elected
to this office, where experience, busi
ness training, efficiency and a true
sense of justice and equality counts.
My principal object in seeking the
office is to readjust property valua
tions upon the bases of equity and im
partiality. Do the principles apply to
the present system? I think not, and in
support of my convictions I respectfully
submit tho following condensed facts
for your benefit and consideration:
Some Assessment Facts.
Average annual expense of conduct
ing Marion county assessor's office for
four (4) years period, 11109 to 1912, in
clusive, was $4,899.
Average annual expenso of conduct
ing same office for three (3) years
period, 1913-14-15, was i,157, after al
lowing deduction of $300 for increased
expense due fo change in law in 1913.
Total reduction of Marion county
valuations, 1915 from V1 was $943,
34S nearly one million.
Lo3 to county in public service cor
poration valuations on account of this
reduction was over $200,000. Actunl loss
in taxes due from corporations on 31
mill levy, $0,200. Two-thirds of total
reduction, or $000,000, was made in iSa
lcm city elone. An crrhnl reduction in
valuations is just. An unequal reduc
tion throws tax burdens upon the un
favored and is manifestly unfair.
In regard to illusions and juggling of
figures and reports if necessary will
publish more facts.
These facts and figures ero taken
from the Taxpayers' (iuide, issued by
Cnnnty Clerk Max Oehlhar.
Fellow taxpayers, have yoa received
any of the benefits of these reduc
tions! Your vote and influence will aid in
equalizing assessed valuations ftnd will
