Invited to express their opinions
through these columns.
Thomas Collins, county treasurer,
is in the field, a candidate for re-elec
tion, and unless the present outlook
is changed, will have no opposition,
from either party, at the primaries.
This is as it should be. To use
the old saying" One good term de
serves another," and Mr. Collins has
undoubtedly made good. The recent
examination of the books of the coun
ty treasurer's office gives him a de
cidedly clean bill of health, and in
addition compliments the county upon
the way in which his books and rec
ords are kept.
Mr. Collins is not only an effcient offi
cial, but an agreeable gentleman, in
serving the ijubllc, and they will un
doubtedly show their appreciation by
their solid support next month.
That M. J. Englert has been emin
ently successful as State's Attorney in
securing convictions of criminal cases
which he has tried is evident by a
glance over the county records of the
past year since he took office. In
all but a few cases the convictions
have been obtained with but little
expense to the county, and in an un
usoally large number of cases there
have been pleas of guilty, the states
attorney apparently 'having persuad
ed the defendants that it was bet
ter to admit their guilt in the hope
of obtaining a light sentence than
to put up an expensive fight.
THE RilGHT STAND.
Alderman Lee Comas should be
complimented upon the stand he took
In the meeting of the city council
against spending nearly $400.00 for a
bear cage, in which to keep the two
cub specimens of the Bruin tribe
which are now in the basement of the
City hall. It is hard to harmonize a
cut of a thousand dollars in the library
appropriation, and a reckless expendi
ture for bear cages and dens, such
as was proposed.
The press of the state is apparently
strong for the candidacy of Thomas
H. Tharalson, present deputy state
treasurer, and candidate for the office
to succeed State Treasurer Gundar
Olson. He Is a thoroughly capable

The following notice was left with
The Times-Record Saturday, and
while the name of the writer is not
known to us, it seems to be timely
and we are glad to give it Bpace:
The women of San Francisco are
determined to prevent the letting of
a portion of the fair grounds for the
purpose of establishing' houses of
prostitution and ara doing all hi their
power to stay the evil.
However, this controversy ends, one
thing must be remembered. The vice
that sacrifices the girlhood and boy
hood1 of the country, and bring con
tamination upon innocent wives and
children—that vtyp intends to flourish
somewhere during the world's fair.
Let it be remembered that the
country will be scoured for girls
to supply the demand of this nefari
ous business, and every means that is
possible for man to conceive will be
used to snare and mislead' these girls
in cder to secu:e t'wm.
Kvery girl should be warned against
advertisements of positions in San
Francisco, for every place that is
worth while will be taken and the
door that will be open for the strange
girl will be the door that leads to
The papa's that do their duty to
the girlhood of the nation will pub
lish the warning, and women of every
town and city who would protect the
•youth of the landv will sound tUe
alarm and caution and guard the girls
of their neighborhood.

If you have any grain left after

E. K. PERRIN,
You take chances on holding any

will give you the highest market

WHY THE VOTERS
LOCAL MAN GIVES REASONS WHY
MANY VOTERS WILL NOT TAKE
PART IN PRIMARY ELECTION.
I saw an article The Evening
Times-Record under date of May 8,
referring to our city assessors.Saying
that at least 10 per cent of the voters
will not state their politics, and there
fore must loose their vote at the pri
mary election. This article also says
that they do not understand the law.
And as I am one of those who refused
to state my politics, I take the .liberty
of explaining why I do so. I am one
of those fellows that no party owns,
and I may say that I belong to no
party, and I would only be perjurying
myself when I sign an affidavit that I
am a Republican, or a Democrat or
even a Bull Mooser.
I vote on general principals only.
When I see a good ReubHcan iliac
I think would make a ?ool 1 onest
man for the office he may be rum ing
for, I vote for him, and the Democrat
the same on any other party, it is
all the same to me. It's the man that
controls my vote not the paitv. I
may loose my vote on primary elec
tion by taking this stand, but I am
not perjurying myself. I kr.ew many
V*iters who hare declared their poli
tics as Republicans just to vote in the
Primaries that have always been De
This is what I call wrong, and it
don't go with me. In fact 1 do not
see as many of oar on&ttates are
seeking office undor any otlifr poli
tics than Republican. Where are our
Democrats? Are they ashamed of
their politics? Why does our Demo
crats seek to be nominated under the
name of Republican, do they think the
Republican party Is the strongest?
And they want to be on the winning
Why are we living under a Demo
cratic administration, why was Ex-Gov
ernor Burke elected the third time?
Surely somebody must change their
political views between primary and
fall elections. Stick to one party at
all times and you are doing a great
unjustice to yourself ana country also.
If it was not for us few voters that
will not declare ourselves, or in fact
can not declare ourselves without
perjurying ourselves, there would be
only one party in the field in a few
years. These 10 per cent of voters you
speak of, you will find by investigat
ing, stands for principles, and man
not ifirty. Are we right or are we
wrong? We would rather loose our
vote on primary than to perjury our
selves, Yours Respectfully,
