H. Carlyon for Senator. , The Republican party presents to the voters Dr. P. H. Carlyon as its candidate for state senator. His history in the past dozen years is the history of the progress of Thurstbn county and Olympia. Elected mayor of Olym pia in 1904 and 1905, he was one of the best men who ever occupied • that chair. In 1906 he was elected representative and was re elected in 1908 and 1910. He was a dominant figure in the policies of the House all through those termß and became a champion of pro gressive legislation. Our direct primary and the initiative and referendum were championed by him. In 1912 ho was promoted to the senate and became the recognized leader of that body, and has to his credit much of the splendid record made by the last two sessions of the legisla ture. He is unopposed on the "hybrid" ticket. 00. Aspinwall for Representative. f The Republican candidates for the House are C. C. Aspinwall and L. J. Morrison, both of whom are well known to the voters of Thurs ton county. Aspinwall is comparatively new in county politics, but not in state politics. He has been secretary of the state board of con trol and later superintendent of the Boys' Training School at Chehalis, but was removed by Governor Lister for political reasons. He is a big, broad-minded, generous-hearted indi vidual, with gregarious and cosmopolitan tastes. He is a college man and a baseball player of note. He was a logger and is now a dairy farmer located at Mud Bay. His elec tion will be a benefit not only to Thurston eounty, but to the State of Washington. L. J. Morrison for Representative. Morrison is known by nearly every man and woman in the county, and they call him by his lirst name, too. He has lived here for more than 37 years, and is a taxpayer. He was county auditor for two terms, and then re tired from politics, but was forced into the legislative race two years ago and consented to stand for re-election. His platform was one of strict economy, and as a member of the appropriations committee he translated it into action by helping to cut the state tax a million dollars. Along with the other members of the Thurston county dele gation he put Thurston county on the road map and got over $87,000 for the Olympic and the Pacific highways in this county as well as an appropriation of $60,000 for the Girls' Train ing school at Grand Mound. All of the members of this delegation are opposed to any change in the "dry" law, un less it be to strengthen it. The election of Carlyon, Aspinwall and Mor rison means that Thurston county will have an able, representative delegation in the legis lature, a delegation that will get results and not simply talk about results.

NORTHWEST FRUIT PRODUCTS CO., Tumwater, Wash. duct of the county auditor's office by Annie Gaston, candidate for re-election. During Miss Gaston's two years as auditor the work of the office has been attended to more systematically and promptly than at any time in the history of the county. The time between the filing of on instrument and its return to the owner is ltss than in any other county in the state. In addition to the high efficiency maintained the expense has been held down to the minimum. From January 11, 1915, to October 1, 1916, Miss Gaston collected in fees and licenses that are paid intd the county treasury $15,942 and spent $12,014, leaving a net profit of $3,928 to the county. Stating the result in another way: She saved a clear profit of 25 per cent of all moneys received, for the taxpayer, in an office not regarded as a revenue producer. Some record that, and one that Miss Gaston's rriends are proud of. A record that has never been equalled in the county, and probably not in the state. Under the laws passed in 1915 the county auditor issues all motor vehicle licenses and keeps the accounts and draws all the warrants for the 65 school districts of the county, while the "dry" law imposed the extra work of issuing the liquor permits. In taking care of this unforeseen work Miss GastOn has collected over $9,000 for over 3,000 motor vehicle licenses issued, and drawn over 4,000 school warrants, besides issuing more than 3,000 liquor licenses. All of this extra work has been taken care of without addi tional cost to the taxpayer. Instead, she dis pensed with one deputy until after the new work came up. She also dispensed with the ' sealer of weights and measures" and has taken care of that work with a regular office employe, thus saving the taxpayer more money, and she intends to continue that policy during her second term. Miss Gaston is busy in the office from 8 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon, and works many evenings as well, and has not claimed her yearly vacations Having served as deputy under two preceding auditors, she brought to the office a thorough knowledge of all of the multitude of details belonging to that department, and so made possible the splendid record of efficiency, economy and accuracy. Any change to an inexperienced person, as either of her oppo nents are, would certainly mean a loss in time, money and service to the county. > Miss Gaston is not connected with, nor in terested in, any "special interests." Her oppo nent, Miss Shaw, is the secretary of the Ctfpital City Abstract Company and is being vigorously supported by its president and principal owner, Emery Chaplin. You may not know how valuable a thing it would be to the abstract company to h&ve its secretary in control of the auditor's office, but the well-fed Emery knows. The taxpayers would suffer, but he wouldn't. He would smile his benevolent smile while hauling in the shekels. .

GIVE HER A SECOND TERM. Thos. L. O'Leary for Prosecuting Attorney. Thos. L. O'Leary, candidate for prosecuting attorney, is asking for that place upon the rec ord that he made during the term that he held the office. A comparison of his record with that of the present incumbent certainly shows Mr. O'Leary to be the more efficient man. An examination of the record of cases filed «md convictions secured discloses the fact that O'Leary when he brought a criminal charge was fortified by the law and evidence neces sary to get a conviction in the majority of cases. On the other hand, the present incum bent has not been successful in securing con victions in one-fifth of the cases that he filed, due largely to the fact that he rushed into court and into print and then when too late tound that he didn't have the evidence to con vict and the county paid the bill. The expenses of the office have largely ex ceeded the expenses of Mr. O'Leary's\ term, and costly blunders have been made. The Stackhouse case is one in point. The costs of tliat prosecution amounted to more than $550, and although a jury found Stackhouse guilty, yet because the county's attorney failed to prepare a proper form of verdict, he went free and the county paid the costs. The Offut Lake School case is another illus tration: A new school district was formed by the county superintendent upon a petition from the patrons of the new district, but the members of the school board of the old district appealed the case to the board of county com missioners, and the county attorney prepared the papers in the appeal case. The board re versed the decision of the superintendent and the petitioners appealed to the superior court, f/lleging that the papers in the appeal to the board were improperly drawn, and the supe lior court sustained their contentions. In this case Mr. Yantis was compelled to attack the papers he had drawn and prove them worth less. Another case: The present incumbent gave the county auditor an opinion that uiton one permit both beer and whiskey might be se cured. He was one of the two prosecuting at torneys in the state to so hold. Because of this ruling enormous quantities of beer and whiskey, which should have been kept out, were permitted to come into the state Four days before the primary election he reversed himself and held that but one kind of liquor could be allowed on one permit. Mr. O'Leary did as much outside of the office to sustain law and order as any man who has been there, but he does not talk about such THE THURSTON COUNTY REPUBLICAN CENTRAL COMMITTEE cases, for he is willing to be judged by the pub lie record. A man who was seeking an attorney in a pri vate case would certainly choose O'Leary upon the record, and in choosing officers the same rule should be applied. Experiments are costly in any office, bi*t especially so in the prose cuting attorney's office, as the record of the past two years show. Vote for and elect O'Leary and you will have an attorney who will be a credit to the county and save you money, as well as to enforce the laws and discourage crime. Sams and Bennett for Oommisiionera. The Republican candidates for county com missioners are J. C. Sams and S. Y. Bennett. Sams is running on a platform of lower taxes, a careful auditing of all bills, a careful super vision of all expenditures, constant supervision of road work and maintainance after construc tion, the concentration of county equipment and supplies, a dollar's worth of service for every dollar spent and a business like conduct of board meetings. I Sams knows the roads of Thurston county as well as any man in the county, and knows the needs of each and every community and how to best serve those needs, too. lie is thor oughly versed in the office work of the county, and as commissioner he will be in a position to tell how an office ought to be conducted and what expense is necessary. He is the very man for a trying and particular place. An effi ciency expert in a place where effic ency is needed but seldom found. You need him, your neighborhood needs him, and your county needs him. Elect him. S. Y. Bennett is unopposed upon the "ring" ticket, so but little need be said about him. He was at one time assessor for two years, and in that office made a splendid record, a record that won for him the primary election in a field of six candidates. He is a farmer whose rugged integrity and honesty is recognized and admired by all. His election is assured. Two years ago the Non-Partisan "ring" told you that your old board membersNwere draw ing too much money in salaries and that SSOO per year was as much as they would allow. Last year their members drew down over S9OO. They criticized the letting of bridge contracts on the emergency basis, and yet the present board has similarly let them. You were told that machinery was being bought without com petitive bids, and yet the "Non-Partisan" board has bought many thousands of dollars' worth of machinery without calling for bids. A loud noise was made over the Coast Bridge Co. receiving bridge contracts, and yet the first contract let under their regime was to that company. They howled over the appointment of the road supervisors, and yet they appointed ♦he same men and in the same manner. In other words, the spokesmen for that "ring organization" made promises that they could not keep, never intended to keep, and did not keep, and this year they are at the s.ime old big talking game.
