Don't Be Fooled,
The Colfax Commoner, following
out the line of campaign dictated by
George Turner to the Democratic
state central committee, is concen
trating its efforts for the election of i
the democratic legislative ticket in
this county. It is making its cam
paign under the mask of the de- j
raand for a railway commission, ;
hoping that the popularity of that:
Issue in this county will blind the i
voters to the real object Mr. Turner |
desires to obtain. The democrats
would indeed be well pleased if they
could elect their legislative ticket in
this county. Such an event would
mean live votes for George Turner ;
for United States senator, for if that
gentleman is able to control the next |
legislature he has promised to "com- j
pel" it to do his bidding. For
years "Mr. Turner's great ambition
has been to sit in the senate of the
United States, where he could abuse
the republican administration and
malign the good name of such pood
statesmen as William McKinley and
The republicans of Whitman
county are pledged absolutely to
the railway commission idea, and
the Colfax Commoner, during the
past summer, has stated in its re
ports of the republican county con
ventions that the commission forces
■were in control. It now seeks by
insinuation to leave the impression
that republicans in this county
■would not vote for their favorite is
sue if they were elected. Such
Statements are nothing more nor
less than political rot. Every re
publican legislative nominee in
Whitman county is a strong advo
cate of remedial railway legislation.
Had they not been, they could never
have received the nomination which
they sought at the hands of the late
republican county convention. That
is a cinch. No man who has a
thimbleful of brains would ever
question their sincerity, save only
fcr the purpose of political schem
ing. Republicans do not question
the republican legislative nominees.
Democrats always question every
thing republican, no matter what it
A Splendid Official.
L. E. Allen, the republican coun
ty treasurer, is one of the best and
most economical county officials
Whitman county has ever had. He
has made a splendid record during
the two years he has held office and
comes before the voters with a clean
administration to back him up. Un
der his administration the expenses
of the treasurer's office have been
materially reduced, as shown by
the figures taken from the auditor's
report at the end of the fiscal years
shown below: For 1897 and 1898,
salaries and expenses, $10,837.32;
1899 and 1900, salaries and ex
penses, 12,114.39; 1901 and 1902,
salaries and expenses, 10,603.97.
The net saving of 1903 and 1904
over 1897 and 1898 is $233.35; tue
net saving of 1903 and 1904 over
1899 and 1900 is $1510.42; the net
saving of 1903 and 1904 over 1901
and 1902 is $2223.04.
It will be noted that Mr. Allen
has saved $2223.04 in salaries and
expenses during his administration
over the administration of his pred
ecessor, notwithstanding the natur
al increase of the work of the office,
which is heavier now than ever be
fore in the history of the county.
Those results have been accom
plished by having an experienced
and competent man in the office and
should be a strong argument with
the taxpayer for voting to retain
Mr. Allen in the county treasurer's
office for another term.

in this county have been exception

into power. The county indebted
ness is decreasing rapidly and will
continue so to do as long as the re
publicans remain in control. You
can never tell what a democrat
will do, for that party has nothing
but a record of broken promises.
When you go to vote ask yourself
which of the candidates is best fitted j
to handle the business of the treas-1

Colfax, Washington, Oct. 17, 1904.
To the Voters of Whitman County,
Washington: The Colfax Commoner j
having questioned our sincerity regard- j
ing our position on the commission j
question, we take pleasure in announc-j
ing that we are now, and always have
been, most heartily in favor of an ap
pointive railway commission as express- j
ed in the platform adopted by the repub- i
licans of Whitman couuty, in convention |
assembled July 9 th, 1904. We were!
nominated by this convention and pro- I
pose to stand by its declarations, one of ]
which was as follows :
"We believe the best interests of the
people of this state demand the enact
ment of an appointive regulative com
mission law, and we pledge our legisla
tive nominees, if elected, to use every
honerable means to the enactment of
such a law." Peter McCregor,
—The W. A. C. faculty entertained the
faculty of the U. of I. at a reception and
banquet Saturday evening, in Stevens
Hall, about 100 being present.
