Mrs. Ana Wink, aged 45 years, daughter of one of the oldest pioneer families of western Oregon, was kill ed Tuesday afternoon about 4 p. m. when she fell from the 60-foot trestle on the logging lino of the Pivciflc Spruce Corporaticn. The trestle is located four miles sculh of South Beach. According to tlia best inform ation poesiblo to cb'.iin, Mrs. Wink became frightened up-.n the approach of a railroad engine operated by em ployees of the Spruc9 Co., and fell from the trestle brsaking her neck In the 60-fcot fall to the ground. It had been reported that the engine struck Mrs. Wink, but examination of the body by Dr. Belt, showed no signs of being hit by the tender of the engine, according to the coroner's Jury ver dict. Mrs. Wink has been making her home with her aged mother, Mrs. John GuiMama. and her two brothers, Mark and Newt., at the old family borne near South Beach. The family 1s well known and highly respected by the people of the community and their many friends are grief stricken over the unfortunate affair. Outside of her many friends Mrs. Wink is survived by a 17-year-old son and a daughter, her mother, two Slaters and two brothers. Word has not been received as to the funeral service but it Is understood that it U being held up pending the arrival of relatives from other sections. The coroners inquest was held at South Beach Wednesday and its veis diet was ag follows: "South Beach, Ore., May 17. Dr. F. M. Carter, coroner of Lincoln county. We, the undersigned Coroner's Jury In the case of MVs. Ana Wink, deceas ed herewith submit the following ver dict: fit la our findings, base4 upon the evidence submtttedy .that Mrs. Ana Wink came to her death through una voidable cause on the part of the em ployees of the Pacific Spruce corpora tion. In te operation of one of the company's engines; that it is our fur ther opinion that Mrs. Wink became confused or exhausted and laid down, on te trestle. At the examination con dutcdo by Dr. W. C. Belt, there wag no mark on her person to show that she had been struck by the tender; there is a possibility that she became frightened and rolled off the trestle. It Is our further opinion that the Pacific Spruce Co., and employees are absolved from any blame, the causa of death being accidental and unavoid able. . CARL C. DA Via Foreman; WARREN B.

Primary Election In Voters' Hands at Polls Today Hottest Contest Waging Be tween Republican Candidates for Governor; Hall and Olcott Fight on Religious Issues. The voters today are deciding the candidates who will represent their respective parties at the general elec tion tills fall. Thus will end ono of the most hotly contestod primary bat tlos In the history of thj prlniary law in Oregon. Especially Is this so be tween the candidates for the office c Governor on the Republican ticket. There are six candidates for gover nor, Patterson, Hall, Olcott, White, Bean and Lee. Hall and Olcott have fought each other on reltgiouB issues, while Patterson Is trying to tear to pieces the Olcott record. It Is to be hoped Um.t the voters have made a careful scrutiny of the plat forms of the candidates and will vote accordingly. It is the bellof of many people that overzealous friends end mis-Informed and malicious enemies have Injected Into the campaign re ligious and racial issues that have no foundation in the policies of the men who are running for office. The count of the election judges to night will settle all disputes and the "also-rans" will take their back seats ! while tihelr more successful opponents will start their cainoaigns for the gen eral election In November.

Farmers Winning In Congress Says Miles Poindexter Should Now Turn to Business and Succeed by Combination; Should Keep Away From Class Legislation. By MILES FOINDEXTER U. 8. Senator from Washington Relief of most of the difficulties of farm marketing can be had throush fanners cooperation. It is an old saying that "God helps those who help themselves." It Is also a common observation that uie fate of individuals depends upon their own efforts more than anything else combined. I noticed the other day an account In a newspaper of a month-old baby, which had been abandoned In r. thick et. A policeman passing by heard a lusty cry from the infant and rescued it. This Is a very good Instance of the early age at which even the ques tion of life or death depends upon one's own efforts. If this baby had not helped itself by giving Uie lalarm, UI11V a III U1U tt 11 WHU, I m Bic tence wouM n navfl b(jen known. !lt would have been the same as though only a month old as it was, its exls- hliitv i-,,,, tnat na mav KToyl inlo ja ' t man dlrect oestlny ' munonB j M numose in montionlng thin Is to , out the moral that farmers can 5 mo to? Zm.eTves than the government can possibly do for them. Nearly every legislative measure that has been approved and requested generally by farmers' national organi zations during the term of the present Congress, has been favorably acted Upon, and although some of them hnve been of substantial assistance to agri culture, they will be of comparatively, little benefit unless the farmer him self takes those voluntary steps which will put him In the way of gettlni; tho benefit of conditions created by!00 expenses growing out of the these laws. The farmer deals on the wnr.

All w entered the war in 117.' declared that Is necessarv is that the farmer . should have the benefit of the same right to organize enjoyed by labor and by business. Heretofore he has bean a lone Individual, dealing with power ful organizations. By being organized, both labor . and business are able to command the highest quality of ser vice. They have the ablest lawyers to advise them both in questions of legal difficulties, and in getting out of such difficulties, in case they Bhould got in. They have experts on efficien cy and economy In marketing, not only as to methods and facilities, but as .o studying market conditions and prices. The farmer has mado a great deal of progress In the last two or three years by way of national organization through the Farm Bureau and Uie combination of various other organi- nations, acting Jointly in Washington City. But these activities are con fined very largely to political and leg islative matters. If the same system could be applied to the farmer's busi ness. Including methods of producing conditions, employment of his luuor, buying of My farm Implements and family supptlos, und placing hl3 crops upon the market In good condition and to the best advantage as to price, he undoubtedly would reap the same ben efits from such organization as the I cot ton, citrus, and raisin growers of California have enjoyed in the specific cases where thoy lwivo organized along I similar lines. There Is no reason at ;ull why this ennnot be done. All that Ms required is the will to do It.

The Senator disclosed a memorandum from Secretary Mellon which shows that the estimates for the fiscal year of 1923 are $3,700,000,000, or $1,800. 000,000 less than the expenditures of 1921. This Is a reduction of almost one-third and It speaks volumes for tho achievement of the Republican party in lightening the burdens of the taxpayers. In addition to this Senator Freling huysen cited the fact that the number of persons employed In Washington has been reduced by the Republicans fromfrom 119,000 to 73,000, while throughout the entire nation 320. 27S persons were dropped from the Gov ernment payrolls. Taking $1,000 as i . . . the average annual salary or a govern ment emp.uyee, ims wuuia metiu a saving to tho taxpayers of $320,000,000 on tills item alone., or $3 per capita. The revenue law enacted by Uie Republicans reduced the tax bit lo thf eocuntry by $818,000,000. and while it is not perfect and will undoubtedly be vastly Improved In the next year or bo, It removed many burdens and nulsunce. "The reservo of the Federal Reserve Bunks lias increased from a little more than 40 per cent to over 77 per cent," says Senator Frelinghuysen, "and re discounts rutes in the financial cen ters have fallen from 7 per cent ts i'4t per cent.
