LOOK AT THE FIGURES
At the primary election in Clatskanie precinct, on April
17th there were 189 votes cast for the Republican candidates
for clerk; 189 for the Republican candidates for Judge; and
197 fr the Republican candidates for assessor, while the
United Republican vote for Representative in Congress was
only 175 and for Supreme Judge only I52.
What was the cause of this unusual interest in the nottri
n.'itionof candidates who, if elected, will constitute tie county
board of equalization?
Tlie figures show and we are reliably informed bjr a prom
incut Republican, that very many of the voters at 'the pri
mary in Clatskanie voted only for the judge, clerk and as
sessor the three officers who constitute the county board of
equalization.
Let the voters consider carefully what this means.
Clatskanie precinct is the place where the men from the
Benson lumber camp voted, and there is no doubt thetr voted.
with very few exceptions, exactly as they were led to believe
their employers desired them to vote.
Many of them were transient laborers, not paying taxes
nor haviug any permanent interest in Columbia County,
They cared nothing whether the burded of taxation wI
placed upon the farmers and business men who have helped
to improve our country or whether those who are exploitmf
its resources for personal gain only were winners by ( re
sult. The men whom they helped to defeat had stood for 9404!
taxation of all property, including that of the timber 14
millionaires and the railroad corporations. 1
These iuterests desired to punish those who had the aeT
to stand for the people, and, so far as the primaries art aaV
cerned, they have succeeded.
The Mist does not assert that the successful candidate far
nominations will, if elected, betray the people; but it dow
assert and there is no contradicting the fact that they recoil
ed the support of the men who are to-day invoking the aid oi
the courts to enable them to shirk the payment of their just
share of the public burden.
This is not a personal fight. It is merely a juetio
whether the '"iuterests" or the people are to control hefW
in Columbia County, and. regardless of the result of thajsa
election the battle will be continued until people of all parties
thoroughly understand the issue and vote accordingly.
The following timber owners ate endeavoring to erada
final payment of their taxes and have appealed to the circuit
court.
Benson L. & L. Co.
Jeunings-McRae Co.
(.). K. Logging Co.
Chapman Timber Co.
Western Timber Co.
John West.
"Detroit Trust Co.
Blodgett & Co.
These are the "interests" referred to.
The Benson Company has for its vice president E. "S. Con
vert, of the law firm of Coovert & Stapleton, of Portlamd, aad
one of the members of this firm visited Columbia Couaty fc
fore the primaries and fixed things for the candidate favored
by the "iuterests."
