CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS
MAKES FRIENDS BY HIS PRO
A. W. Lafferty of Portland, pro
gressive Republican candidate for
the congressional nomination, made
a court room full of friends- by his
address here Saturday night, and
Wallowa men- report an equally suc
cessful meeting at that city In the

Ideas of his own and isn't, afraid
to' tell them. And he knows how
o tell th-sm, too. He made what is
termed around town, the best politr
ical speech heard here In y-aara;
Mr. Lafferty bristles with, to
mrgency. He is In. favo of a fed
eral Income and inheritance tax, of
larlff reduction on articles the Am
Ji.tan manufacture of which is in
he hands of a monopoly, like the
Jtt-el Trust. He stands for the
Oregon primary law, popular elec
tion of United States senators, and
a opposed to convention nomlna
He told In, graphic terms how Con-sressman-
Ellia went asleep while

ber ta-eked on a repealing clause
o the reclamation, bond bill by
which Oregon lost over $2,000,000 of
.'eclamation funds that was the right
ful share of this state. Then be
cause of pique or dislike, of Ore
gon's senators, Ellis nevr gave
:hem any warning and the grab
was railroaded through, the senate.
"That money should have been
speni on irrigation projects in Or
son," said Mr. Lafferty, "some" of it
right here in Wallowa county la) put
ilng water on the hill land."
If elected Mr. Lafferty will en
deavor to get this money, back for
Oregon, and get thl state her prop-
sr share hereafter.
State Cara of Forests.
It was In his conservation.' policy
;hat Mr. Lafferty especially struck
the popular chord. "
First he Is in favor of restoring to
homestead entry all agricultural
lands now within the boundaries- of
-he forest reserves.
Next, he would have the forests
placed In. trust In, care of the state,
under strict provisions that would
insure careful trusteeship. The state
,nen- to patrol the forests, and the
proceeds of all sales of ripe tlm-
)er and grazing feea to go Into the
3tat treasury, wh3.r0 It belongs-.
Mr. Lafferty has a bill prepared
to the above effect, w'ch he will
troduce If he is elected. He Is
.jnfl'Jent of' securing the co-opera-ion
of the congressmen from all
Jther states where there are nation-
