Judge Crowell to Mr. Dunn
Jttdgtj Outiii to Judge Crowell
To Jfr, Crnwell: Auswerint; your
jiniptirivs in the Medford Tribune, let
inc Mty thnt 1 nm in favor of building
bridges on county roaiN where
bridges nre needed.
I nm not Hente-n Bowers' keeper,
legnl ndvier or malinger, nnd nm not
rcsiwnsiblc for hw nets or conduct
either with respect to tho Medford
bridge or nny other of his acts.
Tho question of tho liability of the
county for the const ruction of the
Medford bridge ishefore tho supreme
court nnd what that body determines
is the duty of the county in regn id
thereto I assume will be carried out.
I nm in favor of strict, rigid nod
adequate fruit inspection.
As ii director of the First National
bank of Medford, I am, mid have til
ways worked for, the upbuilding of
the city of Medford mid intend to
continue so to do, whether elected
county judgo or not.
It in true that I did not do as much
for the upper Rogue river roads ns 1
desired to, duriu;iiiy administration,
but it wns because there were so
many impassible roads nearer the
center of population, that tho funds
nt my coiniuund wero exhausted.
Judge Ciowell, if )on had built it few
permanent roads during your admin
istrntiou 1 could havo done more for
tho outlying distiicts.
Wo built somo roads into Medford
ono south, one toward Jackson
ville, ono towittd Kuglo Point (the
one you built of straw when you were
county judge). Now, honest, judge,
isn't tliis true?
Now, judge, if I wns ''simply n
drifter" nnd "not u doer" when 1
was county judge, why did you so
strenuously mid ardently support me
for re-election four years ngo? Do
you want to nckaowledgo now that
you bo fur forgot your duty ns an
American citizen that you supported
for public offico of re-election n
Yes, Mr, Crowell, I know why you
won't voto for nto for county judge.
It is not u matter of vital or public
iniportauco how you vote, but sinco
you hnvo naked, tho question nnd
Hceni to think tho public nro tip-tne-iit"
to see how you vote on my candi
dacy, 1 will tell yon and tho public
also. It is beeausn I, us u director
of tho First National bank of Med
ford, Oregon, voted to change tho
nuinngemont of tho First National
bank deposing you as mnnager of the
bank and (.'looting Mr. Alford in your
rwtw TfAtU
H.4.W -.. -.
Judge Crowell to Judgo 'Dnnn
To Mr. Dunn: !.ook across the
page nt the questions I nke.d you
Saturday, nnd note that while your
attempted reply possesses some un
kind remarks of me, yet your answers
nro not candid but evasive, partly
duo to the mental methods of the
Medford attorney who composed
,our reply. Will you endeavor to be
more candid in making your answer
to those questions, nnd theso addi
tional "new ones?
Remember that I nm not on trial,
but thnt your former administration
of the judgeship and yourself nre the
questions nt issue. Have yon the
business' experience nnd training,
the knowledge of systematic meth
ods, tho breadth of mind, the ability
to learn, const met, and execute the
intricate business affairs thnt con
front nn cxecutho and judicial office
in the large and growing affairs of u
progressive community like Jackson
When you wore judge, why did you
neglect to build the bridges needed
over the Roguo river nt Woodville,
Gold Hill, nnd Reese creek, nnd thus
compel Judge Neil to mnko tho outlay
for these needed improvements?
When you wero judge, why did you
sit still in your office for four years
instead of going over tho county to
find where road improvements wero
needed, whore bridges wore unsafe,
and whore orchardists wore getting
full protection?
Why didn't you answer about Med
ford'.s county bridge and telj us why
you neglected to call off tho captain
of your campaign, Denton "Dowers,
from delaying its building? You say
you nro Medford's friend. Why didn't
you show n little of your friendship
in this bridge nintter? A friend in
need is n friend indeed.
Why don't you como out, Mr. Diiiitt
like a candid man, and answer my
questions, and say in plain blunt
words, like these I addressed to you,
"Yes I will protect the orchard in
terests, and keep up tho present ef
ficient inspection system." Your pre
tended answer is no nnswer. It ex
cites just suspicion thnt you intend
to destroy tho present fino system of
orchard inspection, but that ym
havo not the courage to pay fo now.
Why ditl county expanses iuoreuse
every your that you wero judge? The
figures below wore taken from tho
circular which you distributed to se
cure tho nomination, tho samp cir-

Signers State That Matter Was Pre-pared-Before

Over County Books and Reported

None of Signers Consulted or Asked
About Use of Same In Present
That the circular tent out by G.
W. Dunn to Jackson county voters,
signed by T. E. Pottencer, E. It.
Catman, F. It. Amy and O. C. Gar
rett was unauthorized by the signers
nnd use! !y Mr. Dunn without their
knowledge or consent is the state
ment that the signers themselves
make. The circular was sent out
agelnat the candidacy of P. E. Mer
rick at the April primaries and re
prntcd by Mr. Dunn without author
ization. Mr. Oatman Is open In advocacy
of Colonel Tott Velle's candidacy. Mr,
Pottenger and Mr. Amy still support
Mr. Dunn and Mr. Garrett says that
be did not authorize the publication
of his name thereto In this cam
paign and that publication of the
document at this time was not of his
volition. Mr. Garrett would not
have signed this statement as the ex
porting of the county books up to
July, 1912, and the report of two
grand Juries, as well as other facts
not of an official character, put a
new face on the issues thatwere not
apparent In the spring primaries.
It 1b also discovered that the
signers ot theI)jitataeatAatnri&&.
did not" originate the document, that'
It was prepared by the Dunn mana
gers and It was made to appear to the
signers that It was to Contain the
names of many citizens and it was
not realized until after publication
that these few names were being
singled out backing a statement the
full value ot and meaning of which
they knew only what was presented
to them.
As far as the fall campaign Is con
cerned the signers were not con
sulted. It was not given out for
public print In the fall campaign
and the first known of its use was
Its circulation through the county in
Mr. Dunn's letter.
SALEM, Ore., Nov. 4. Frank
Kelly and Walter Davis, both serving
terms of from two to five years, for
burglary, sawed their way out of Uic
kitchen at the state penitentiary here
Inst night, scaled the walls of the
prison and mado their escape. A
posse is scouring the surrounding
country, but is yet without results.
Tho men wero employed as trusties
in tho kitchen. The escape wns made
between the counting of tho men.
Tho convicts took advantage of a
rniny night which made it impossible
to track them. Kelly is a youth of
nineteen years and wns sent to the
penitentiary from Douglns county.
Davis is thiity-ifivo yeurs old and is
from Union county. The escapo is
the second by sawing through tho
bars in the last venr. The former
escape was captured in Seattle in
April urtor having eluded tho ofti
cors for five months.

Every indication points nt this

LONDON', Nov. 4. Whether fo

European powers do not desire to at
