BEN" SELLING, who still considers Crater Lake a local
affair, is openly hostile to the equal rate bill submitted
bv initiative to the people by the Medford Traffic Bureau.
Mi. Selling states that" the bill reads fair, but that
General Freight Agent Louiisberry of the Southern Pa
cific, mit him wise to its infamy.
Of course the railroads are opposed to this bill, which
gives interior towns a fair show. So are the Portland
jobbers, and the state railroad commissioners they control.
fco are the Portland newspapers they mtlucnce.
The bill would destroy Portland's monopoly as a dis
tributing center for the entire state and end the railroads'
graft of the small towns. It would permit the development
of the rest, of the state, dwarfed and stunted b' Portland's
present fatuous policy,' and the extortionate and discrim
inating railroad rates.
In every effort Medford has made for equitable rates,
cither at Salem or at Washington, it has had to fight not
only the Southern Pacific but the Portland Chamber of
Commerce. It will have to continue the fight until a square
deal is secured. ,
It is not surprising that Mr. Selling opposes the mea
sure. Portland for half a century has been Oregon to him.
That's why wc don't want him at Washington but a man
big enough to comprehend the needs' of other localities
than the metropolis.
Before Mr. Selling condemned the bill, he ought to
have consulted its sponsors, the Medford Traffic bureau,
ns well as the railroad otncials. Halt the remedial and
beneficial legislation of the country is condemned by the
railroad, and if Mr. Selling accepts their opinions ih the
senate what kind of a scifator wilL he make'? Do 'the
people want a Southern Pacific senator?
Yet Mr. Selling says Medford is a fine little city, up-to-date
and metropolitan, with four fine clothing stores,
and whether defeated or not he is still its friend. Jle
didn't 2rove its friend in the Crater Lake bill. He is not
its friend, but the railroads' friend, in its effort to secure
a square deal in freight rates.
That Medford is progressive and up-to-date, is not due
to Mr. Selling, but in spite of him. That it continues its
growth and prosperity will be due to its own energy and
pluck in fighting for a square deal.
Having a proved friend in the senate in Jonathan
Bourne, Medford and southern Oregon want to keep him

A T brother Charles' expense, the bill boards of the
-t. country are being placarded with the same old line of
stun tliat Mark iiaiina inaugurated.
"Vote -for Taft and prosperity," as if Taft was the
creator of big crops and good times.
If ho is the creator of good times he must also be the
creator of the high cost of living, of bad times and de
pression. Taft has not kept up with the people, not only in com
prehension of popular demands, but in campaign'methods.
People have become too intelligent to be taken in by such
guff as that upon his bill-boards.
Taft is responsible for the Pavne-Aldrioh tariff which
fosters and creates the trust which makes the rich richer
and the poor poorer, which no matter how great the pro
duction of wealth helps along its inequitable distribution.
