for years. He was the first prose

date for county clerk , Is making a
strong fight for the office, notwithstand-
ing that the ring is fighting him tootli
and noil. He possesses the groatest
clerical experience of any man who has
ever run for tills office, and besides this
be lias given his time and efforts to this
county in ways which entitle him to
consideration from tlie voters. For
more than a year lie has been the secre
tpry of the county federation of com
mercial clubs, mostly without any pay.
He has been a booster for tlie county
and Its interests. And In the clerk's
office he could render great service to
be county, for lie is not lazy, and would
not require the county to hire some one
else to do his work.

didate, on the democratic ticket. She
is the daiiKhter of Mr. and Mrs. John Q.
Kulzcr of Valley, and is well kn nvn
throughout the county as an educated,
refined and moHt capable young 'ady.
Her early education was in the schools
of this county, and she afterward grad
uated from the Cheney normal .school,
fitting herself as a teacher.
She has taught both In rural 3cii3olß
and in the public school system of Col
ville, everywhere with excellent results,
and she has made friendships among
parents which are now bringing her
strong support for the office of co'inty
superintendent. Her pleasing manner
coupled with her educational ability
make her the strongest candidate for
the office, and her election is v»ell
worth an effort being put forth by
those who take special pride in the
county's school system.

ing the taxation of this county, and to refuse payment of unjust bills

That the ring organ the Statesman-Index declare who it supports
for president, governor, congressmen.
That this ring organ state whether it believes in any political party
outside of the courthouse "ring" party.
That the ring candidate declare his political affiliation, other than
just plain "ring" party.
That the ring candidate declare that he is on the republican ticket
because he is a republican, and not because he wants office on what
ever ticket he can easiest get it
That the ring candidate show who he has ever favored with pat
ronage outside of ring members.
That the ring candidate show in what way the taxpayers win
anything by keeping up the ring.
W. L. Woodard of Addy for sheriff
is the man of all others who should re
ceive a vote for sheriff from every man
who wants a competent man in the
sheriff's office. His reputation in this
line of work is so well known that his
ability need not be discussed, and the
fact that "Bill" Graham highly in
dorses him for the position is sufficient
to bring the vote of every man who
appreciated the sterling administration
of Graham for four years.
P. H. Graham and M. C. Stolp.
candidates for commissioner, are two
men who have been successful in their
own business. They are level headed
men, taxpayers themselves for years,
and their election would mean one re
publican and two democrats on the
board. Their promise to hold the
county's expenses within the revenue
is worth something to a tax-ridden
Congressman LaFollette, who is seek
ing reelection from this district on the
stand-pat ticket, is encountering some
very strong opposition from members
of his own party, who point to his record
as not that of a genuine republican.
It seems he failed to vote with the re
publicans in every particular instance
except once, and that once happened
to be on an occassion when the repub
licans voted against President Taft's
wishes. And then the grangers are vio
lentlyopposed to LaFollette, and State
Master Kegley has traveled from one
end of the state to the other telling the
farmers not to vote for him because of
his opposition to their doctrines.
Sansburn for auditor undoubtedly has
the election won. His ability, large
acquaintance over the county, and his
pleasing manner of meeting people and
handling their business matters, are
qualities needed in the auditor's office,
and you can make a correct guess that
with him in the auditor's office there
will be no foolishness about mysterious
warrants being drawn from the county
funds. For the seven years he was city
clerk (part of the time without any
pay at all —simply time donated) he
had not an error in his books, and at
every minute he knew just what the
city was doing and how the finances
stood. He is a man who tends to
business, and the county needs such a
man to tend to its business affairs in
the auditor's office.
A vote for Dodson for assessor is a
vote in protest of exorbitant taxes, and
a vote to place the assessor's office en
a sound basis in favor of the taxpayer.
His agreement not to raise valuations
until levies are lowered is the right
thing, and his election will help many
a farmer for the next two years in
keeping his money at home instead of
paying it to the courthouse ring.

Roscoe Drumheller, the democratic
candidate for Congressman from this
district to succeed LaFollette, is a
wheat rancher near Dayton, where he
farms about 2000 acres. He is an edu
cated farmer, too, and has the inter
ests of his own farming class at heart.
He was a graduate of the state college
at Pullman 11 years ago, and made his
own way in the world from the start of
his farming career. He has a very
pleasing personality, does not berate
his two opponents for the office, and is
quite likely to be the next congressman
from this district. He has the solid
support of many of the state "stand
patters" who do not like LaFollette's
actions, and who would not vote for a
"mooser" on a bet, and all these dif
ferent things give him far the best of it.
