Women are always exclaiming over them and when they notice they can buy ten different flours and cereals in such convenient, small quantities, they are further intrigued. Such variety presents almost limitless ideas for varying menus and permits them to be carried out inexpensively; And when the flour is all used.- the Handysacks certainly live up to their name; they can be used for everything from shoe holders when travelling to vegetable containers for the refrigerator. The Cellophane wrapper simply shouts quality (not to mention cleanliness) and you'll find your expectations verified when you dip your measuring cup into the different flours. That is because they are milled by men who have spent years studying your needs and who know what you want and need. Fisher's Cake Flour will help you create culinary works of art. It is easy to use Fisher's Pancake and Waffle Flour. For pancakes you simply add liquid; for waffles, an extra egg. The dark flours so many people like are of finer quality than most brands. Farina is a breakfast cereal that can be served many different ways. Southerners rave over the White Corn Meal and the Yellow is just as good. PriscillaClub Has Evening Party.

Until further orders from the United States attorney-general you will be kept at McNeil Island penitentiary." The judge's statement was taken to indicate that Mahan might later be transefrred to Alcatraz, "the island of forgotten men." Mahan entered the court room at five minutes to ten o'clock, his thin face drawn, tired, his handcuffs hidden beneath his coat. He told the court lie did not want a lawyer, and pleaded guilty immediately after arraignment. The (iO-year sentence, may not be the end ,of Mahan's troubles, however.

CANDIDATES HEARD BY BROTHERHOOD (Continued from Page One) recorder, "assessor, sheriff, county commissioner, members for the legislature, treasurer school' superintendent, county surveyor and coroner. The committee appointed to represent the brotherhood submitted the following report which was read in the presence of the candidates and subscribed to by most of them: "Your committee appointed to stale the issues important to the Brotherhood at this meeting feel that we should not place too great restriction on the candidates addressing us as some of them may have matters of special importance which they wish to present to the voters. However, since these men are asking for our votes, they should be willing to give their views and standing on certain questions in wmeh we arc vitally interested. "We believe laws are most effectively enforced by persons in sympathy with them. We. therefore, are interested in the attitude of our officers toward laws involving moral issues, such as drinking, gambling and amusements. "Should the law exercise protection against temptation to indulge in things derogatory to the welfare of individuals and society? "To what extent would your influence be used toward the en-ffTCfment of such laws-'' in Woodburn Independent. There comes.,'tg (pyi njirjd a man. who first appeared upon my horizon as a young fellow in the late '80s at Sil-verton as I was performing the duties' of a reporter for the Morning Statesman. I refer to'L. H. McMahan, who was then running a 12-hour a day shift in the Sily.erton flour mills at a compensation of a dollar a day, upon which, he supported an invalid mother. ' ; , I have known this lad ever since, and ha independent grit and determination which characterized .his struggle for existence at that early period have accompanied, .hjnci in the years that have since come and gone, during which he has climbed to the honorable position of ,a circuit judgeship; also during which the expression "ike" battle of life" has been in his case the most applicable language that could be applied to the experience of a Single individual. ' Mc's arrival at a period of life when he felt a duty or a call to have a voice and a hand in public affairs yyasat a time when the'agencies and possibilities of political reform were not so numerous or so readily obtaniable as they are today. The fee system was in use in state and county offices and was productive of large corruption funds, which were widely used. There was no Australian ballot system or registration of voters, and voting, especially in the cities, was to a controlling extent a matjer pf barter and sale. The gang leader marched his ''cattle" to the polls and when they had deposited 'their marked ballots under his eye, he gave the high sign to the sack holder standing in a convenient rendezvous, to whiqh,they returned and received their price. The saloon was about the most powerful .influence .'.in political education at that time, and througk ,fhe fa'te .of men and measures was deterrine?!, ., , .t ltj'v United States senators were elected and the fate .of legislation was decided under the saloQr'$ bright lights, w.ith a public ratification in the legislative halls when the gangs had been suitably paid off, either in cash or by arrangement for public office. . . McMahan in 1888, in the heydey of the foregoing conditions and others to be noted, opened his (battling career by starting a newspaper, the Semi-Weekly Woodburn Independent, and one of his first notable accomplishments was to keep saloons out of Woodburn during the four years he controlled the paped, even against he opposition of his local advertisers, and he was probably the .only publisher of a secular newspaper in Oregon who steadfastly refused to accept saloon advertising. , . " ' . ; When you figure what the political. power' of )ke saloon and Its close ally, the gambling system then was, you can form some estimate of the opposition which AcMahan had the audacity to face. '' ' ' ' ' "' ' Mc was born in one of the earliest mining camps jn Baker county and came up into' the life of the put-pMhie'-way places when it was tough ,tbut' when there was more of honesty and fair play for the individual than he saw later In the more pretentious ranks of civilization. He had a natural hatred for fraud, ppprerssion and raff,' arid a sympathy for the underdog, with' whom from his own experience he held a kinship, and who could' nof obtain a fair chance in the struggle when the ayenujes- of op.-portunity were in control of corrupt political gangs With whom the price of prosperity was'a 'surrender of principle and independent citizenship.1 - ; When McMahan began his crusade political action'was controlled by caucus and convention; the ward heeler was a power in the land and felt it a duty to dispose of any 'man who dared to advocate reforms, to publicly condemn the actions of bosses or to suggest a change of methods of procedure. That is where Mc gave particular offense. He wasn't a bit polite. He mentioned names. He pointed out wrongs that should be righted; frauds that should 'be banished, evils of police that should be wiped put. He left no doubt as to who were the offenders and sometimes kis written and always his oral declarations regarding' them threw a red glare across the sky," all of which demanded that he be suppressed. For this purpose, several attempts were made by hired bullies but their unsuccessful trials were never repeated, and it was understood at one time that two convicts were let out at night for fhe purpose of waylaying him, but their nerve failed "them. To recount the number of physical encounters which Mc's political .efforts forsed on him would fill too much space,' so I can only say that they fully testified to the indomitable courage wrongs that should be righted, frauds that shpuld be pun-which he possessed at the very outset when he began his task. ,.' In 1892 he established the Daily Independent and the Oregon Semi-Weekly Independent in Salem, but by a boycotting edict from the stale authorities and their cohorts the merchants .were bulldozed into withholding advertising .and the, papers,, were starved out in about two years. You sec, in those days, tiie compensation of state officials from lees and loaning of slate funds was from $50,000 to $78,000 a year and Mc was demanding that flat salaries be substituted. The state printer was enjoying an immense graft and Ic was calling for a change. The legislature then elected V. S. senators and at such sessions the most scandalous tales of bribery and corruption ore still remembered by the older citizens, arid Mc was advocating a change to popular election. The public lands of Oregon lieu lands, swamp, land and school lands Which should have produced millions' for public purposes, were wasted for little or nothing to pets of the ruling powers to the permanent injury of the school funds, and Me Was exposing the' frauds and demanding redress for the state. The manner of voting In the state was such as to deprive the people of control of the elections and leave it in the hands of the interested manipulators and Mc was demanding a change to the Australian ballot,' by which the individual has been guaranteed the secrecy of his vote and protection of his rights of citizenship. In fact, witli the political changes which McMahan was Vociferously demanding the power of evil which made, supported and profited by the saloon and gambling system as then politically Conducted saw the removal of their weapons and, the disappearance of their occupation; thence it is no wonder that he was the target of vicious assault from such gangs and from those whoso dirty work they were doing. ' ''"'". ' " ' Since the early days of the present century many "splendid reforms in the conduct of public affairs have been put in operation by which the powers of the common people have been restored to them in spite of the opposition of tlie intrenched legions of monopoly and greed. I know of several who have had a powerful hand in bringing those desirable changes about but I do not know of one who, for his activity in that servlcA has sacrificed more financially or who has been more persistently abused than Leonard H. McMahan, the fearless and undaunted advocate of what he believed to be just and righ,t durinfi a long period when he was almost alone in the fight. ' As a strict party man I have been many times bitterly" displeased with Mc and have roundly criticized him, but when I realized that he assailed democrats and republicans jmparr lially as he found cause, and that wrong against the poor,,or against the state or nation were practically always the basis of his angry tirades, I could not hold a grudge against him.
