C. E. S. Wood Reviews Sena
tor's Record Recalls Re
fusal to Help Bryan;
With a long memory, Colonel C. E.
S. Wool has been telling the voters
In Portland the history of George E.
ChiuiibLrli.lii regarding popular laws
and hiues. Colonel Wood has been
uiiK.tiur.n.-r. of Chamberlain' political
record i-Jid night after night he baa
been declaring Chamberlain a double
dealer, who wants to agree with peo
ple cu Loth sides of everv nnputlnn
uml hj holds no opinion other than
.lli-t or poiputuallng Chamberlain In
la 1303. V.'ocd and T. T. Gecr were
candidates for the popular vote for
United S .itea Senator. In that cam
paign Woo l says he wnuted lo make
an mllvu rir-lit. but that Chamberlain,
fearinn V.V.J might Jeopardize Cham
bi Main's dunces for election as Gov
ernor, IrsiMed that Wood remain
quiet. As User received the popular
vole, Wood wrote the Democratic
members of Iho Legislature asking
them to mpport Geer for Senator.
When these Democrats asked Cham
berlain for advice he told them to
leave the Republicans fight It out
without Democratic help. This nttl
tu.in on the purt of Chamberlain, as
seris Colonel Wood, was In direct
conflict with the spirit snd principle
of the primary.
Again, siya Colonel Wood, Cham
berlain h'.r.isi-If wrote to A. D. Still
nu i. of L'inutllla. recommending that
the Democrats hold an assembly to
make nominations. Later when the
Kepubllcsns held on assembly t)iy
were atsalicd by tho Chamberlain
in v. spa pers and charged with trylug
to undermine the direct primary and
return to machine method.
In his campaigns for Governor,
Chamberlain, mijs Wood, argued that
the Legislature and Governor should
be of opposite political parties. Cham
berlain now argues that Congress
should be of-the same political com
plex on as the President.
When nominated for Senator as a
Democrat In 1508, Chamberlain posed
ns a non partisan, declares Colonel
Wood, knowing that only with Repub
lican voii ho could he elected. At
Ihut time Uoor-evelt was immensely
mpulnr In Oregon and Chamberlain
mnounccd that he was a Roosevelt
Democrat. In December. 1308, Roose
velt met Chr.mberlaln In the Kast and
greeted him as Senator to-be. When
Roosevelt bolted the Republican ticket
ami much of his popularity waned.
Chamberlain attached Roosevelt, al
though tho latter, when President, had
one as far r.H he could to brin;; about
I'liainlierialn's election by a Republic
an l.ei;!a'ure.
In the campaign of LKS, continues
Colonel Wood. Chamberlain refused to
attend the I'.ryan rally in Portland
and again absented himself from
Portland when Judge Alton P. Parker
caino to speak for llryan. Chamber
lain was afraid that his pica of lion
partisanship would not halt) good if ho
was prese.it at theno Democratic ral
lies for Hi an.
Colonel Wood has stigmatized
Chamberlain ns selfish, ns a man
whose i.ole desire Is to look after him
self. He calis retention to the Cham
berlain cards diii.ilayed in this cam
paign whereon there is no hint of any
paity designation.
Somewhat similar talks are being
made by T. T. Gecr, ex-Governor, w ho
is also reviewing the political changes
which Chamberlain has nsuumcd in
his office-seoKIng career. Colonel
Wood Is Interested In defeating Cham
berlain because Wood does not con
sider Chamberlain a Democrat. Geer
says Chamberlain Is not a Republican,
but Is "a man of pretense."
Old Soldiers Admire Booth.
Grnnt Diinlck. mantiger of Ft. A.
Booth, Republican nominee for United
States Senator, has received the fol
lowing communication:
Newberg. Sept. 24, 1914.
I am one of many members of Shi
loh Post No. 77. G. A. U., who received
a letter commending Hon. George
Chamberlain as a friend of old sol
diers. Have heard a number of tho
boys express themselves In regard to
the letter as a huge Joke. It will be
Borne time before old soldiers look to
Mississippi Democrats as special
To me the letter Is a source of both
pleasure and Indignation; pleasure
that It Is an assurance they feel the
need of every vote they can possibly
get; Indignation that I should be re
garded as so devoid of sense as to be
caught by such trash.
There are about 60 member of Shi
loh Post and 1 know of but ono Cham
berlain man nmong them. There may
be two or thrco others, but I do not
know them.
As regards myself there can be no
bettor man for Senator than Mr.
Booth. I have known him for over
30 yeors with Increasing respect and
admiration for him.

and If .
Publicity Drpartmrnt. Committee of On
The Kroat campaign to
make Oregon "wet" has
The exposure by Dr. Cora
Tulljott, secretary of the
"Taxpayers' and "Wage
Earners' League," that the
organization consisted of two
persons, Mrs. Duniway and
Dr.- Talbott, and was fi
nanced by the brewers and
distillers to make Oregon
"wet,'" threw the fat into
the fire.
The. brewers anc distillers
know that all kinds of busi
ness save theirs is better in a
dry town.
Tlicy know Ihis has been proved
Ly figures and facts from talent,

Organization Spread Untruths.
So they organized the "Taxpay
ers' and Wage learners' League" to
spread inhinfonuulion about Ore
gon dry.
They know bank deposits in dry
towns have increased in number
und amount. They know bad debts
are utmost unknown in all dry
towns. They know collections are
better. They know arrests from
drunkenness arc almost unknown.
They kaow every dry town in Ore
gon it prosperous.
So, they became desperate.
Taxpayer' League I "Joke."
Then they organized the joke
"Taxpayers' und Wage Eurners'
League." Dr. Talbv.tt was secre
tary. She became disgusted when
she learned money was being col
lei'lcd by the brewers and distil
leries by the use of her name, and
she resigned.
Then .Mrs. Duniway advertised
lavishly, announcing that the money
the "league" was using was pro
vide:! by the brewers.
The campaign of misinformation
carried on by employes of the
league, who are also employes of
the breweries and distilleries, is
now known nil over Oregon.

They know Oregon dry will put
them out of business and help every

Although the breweries nnd dis

No Sidoons; Better Business.
We have had bad times with the
saloon, haven't we? Why not try
no saloon? It enn't make things
worse nnd is certnin , to make
things better.
Tho reason is:
Money spent on the saloon can
not be spent for groceries. Money
spent in the saloons much of it
gees East. Money spent for dry
goods and sroceries stavs in ka
' towns and r. Aes better business.
The mcmbsrs of tho Committee of
I One Hundred are all Oregonians.
Most of them nre business men.
They ask you to vole Oregon dry,
; because they know, as the brew
ers also know, that Oregon dry
means heller business, lower taxes,
' more work and a, return to pros-
, pcrily.
. Tor the experience of all Ore
gon dry towns has proved this to
' be the case.
