GEORGE W. DUNN,

CROWELL TO DUNN
(Continued from Pngo One)
culnr like a cold potato, you nrc dis
tributing now ng.iii.st Mr. Tou Velle.
Here nro the figures as you then gave
Dunn's first year $120.7.200
Dunn's second year 144,876.00
Dunn's third year IC5,475.00
Dunn's fourth year 180,048.00
This was n largo yearly increase of
taxes durinc your term. What did
you do with this larco sum of money?
It certainly wns not spent on Toads
or bridges. Where Avas it spent?
Do you remember the one great act
of your administration, the only
time that you tried to originate any
thing? Thnt wns your miscalled
"equalization" of assessments, when
. JySPjB, ,ouRUtleskawt.you added
Co per cent to the 'tnjres Jon nil pro
perty in the county, except land. By
this official net you made the man
who had saved up a .thousand dollars
in money pay taxes on $1GG0.00; you
made the man who owned a $100.00
horso pay taxes on a $100.00 horse;
you mndo the jwor widow who owned
a $o0.00 cow, pay taxes on an
$83.00 cow, nnd so on through the
whole list of persounl property.
This so-called "equalization" was
the only original act of your four
year term as judsc. It .was so fin
grnnty unjust and so foolibhly silly
that it was the chief cause of your
defeat for n second term, for it could
not be defended, and no one tried to
You ask me why I supported you
four years ago? Hero then is the
true and candid rcn&on, Mr. Dunn.
You and I were then associated to
gether in business. For the business'
suko nnd credit, I upheld your ad
ministration ns judge for I did not
want the public to regard you as an
official failure, for that would have
been, nn admission that you were no
account in the business. And for the
business' credit, more than yours, I
supported you and helped von to
curry the only Med ford precinct that
gave you n sraull majority in that
cumpaigu. Are you now reviling me
for that net, Mr. tymn f How muny
precincts do you expect to carry in
Mcdford this year, Mr. Dunn? The
Mcdford taxpayer who regards his
own and tho city's interest can find
no good reason for supporting you
Your venomous but not strictly ac
curate statement furnishes mo a uood
pergonal reason for not supporting
you now, wherein you admit, your
injustice and your Ashland prejudice
ngainst mo pcrsonully, when von said
that "Crowell liuilt a finer 'building
than Mcdford needed." Just ns if
anything could bo too fine for Mcd
ford I except in (he bilious mind of
your Ashland prejudice. It is this
Mate of mind that niukes you an
unsafe innn for Mcdford and Jackson
comity to trtibl with their public af
fairs with tho present busy mid
growing period of their existence
Hut persounl reasons are uovor
good public ones. I huvo furnished
good public reasons why you should

JOYS VERSUS GLOOMS.
Tis for those who ally tlunmclvcs with the future thai
victory is assured. The past has no prospects."
It is because the Mail Tribune has allied itself with the
future, that it has fought
it is because we believe in
Inckson county that we hope
Ton Voile as county Judge to
ilurinjr the next four veavs
It is because the past has no prospects and that George
W. Dunn represents the past and the days that are dead,
that we hope for his defeat.
The coming four years
of all in the material development and expansion of t'Jaok
ison county. To make them so we should have an executive
who really believes in progressive policies not one who
ijuardedly and perfunctorily declares himself progressiva
for campaign effect.
Col. Ton Velle possesses unusual qualifications for the
office. lie graduated from the Cincinnati College of Law
when President Taft was its dean and Governor Harmon
f. lecturer in it. He served two times as county treasurer
0L?tclVTfc 0hi0- ,l 0l; sevon -vettW lK wns ias.h,u,v
of the 13auk of Celiiia, O. In the seven years he has resided
in the Uoguo river valley, he has owned and planted many
orchards. He is a careful, conservative, successful busi
ness man, familiar with the needs and requirements of all
parts of this county, wide-awake to its opportunities and
a firm believer in "its destinies.
Only the optimist does things hi this world and
"Lucky" Ton Velle is very uiucli of an optimist. He has
allied himself with the future. His opponent is his
anethesis a veritable "Gloomy Gus" of politics a pes
simist who belongs to the pastVhieh has no prospects.
PROM JOURNALISM TO POLITICS.
NO great issues are involved in the contest for reprii:
scntative from Jackson county. Xo vital principle is
at stakcr hence it becomes a mere question of personality.
All candidates are well known and it is up to the voters. to
As one of the candidates is a former newspaper man.
journalistic courtesy requires a brief mention of J. V.
Barkdull, familiarly known as "Mose", formerly with this
paper. iMost. newspaper men
-DaiKuuu nas provca no exception to tne rule, lor since
leaving the newspaper, he has sold nearly a million dollars
worth of Jackson comity realty, and in turn invested his
If elected to Hie legislature, there is every reason to
believe that Mr. Barkdull will hustle just as hard for Iifc
constituents as he did in "getting news and ads for the old
Medford Mail and as he has since in inducing people to
buy Rogue river orchards.
VOTE FOR BOURNE.
JONATHAN BOURNE has
progressive in politics but
Oregon and the least Jackson
a largo vote as an appreciation
Jien belling A'otcd and worked against Crater Lake
when in the state senate, helped slaughter the Ashland
normal school, and is now opposing the Mcdford rate bill.
He has proven an enemy to Jackson county and should be
rebuked at the polls in no indecisive fashion.
Bourne lias made good and when Oregon has such an
asset, it is folly to destroy it.
In the copy of the ballot printed in the Mail Tribune,
the typographical error appears of vote for two candidates
lor short term as county commissioner. J t should read, vote
for one, otherwise the vote will be thrown out.
A vote for Kelly for prosecuting attorney is a vote
for a fearless, efficient prosecutor who will enforce the
law vigorously and impartially. The welfare of the county
demands his election.
Voteno on X 311, and X:i2S, the "majority rule" bills
fathered by the Employment association, public service
corporations and liquor dealers to destroy the initiative.
Don't fail to vote yes on 3G0, count v home rule road
bill and yes on 058, the Equitable rate bill.
