At JUDGE L. H. McMAHAN Of Judsre McMahan this can be said: he has fouffht graft wherever he found it. He has stood Alone between the jrrafters and the public funds. He has fought the rinps without any help and he has never asked for quarter. No other official has ever been so fearless and none hns accomplished so much for the people. The only way to get good government Is to support those few official", who prove to be sincere in the work of reform. - : The complaint is vociferously made that Judge McMahan is always in a row with other officials and wants to run everything. The jduge's rows have been confined to those who graft taxpayers' money. He snowed by grand jury investigations the great waste of public funds by the highway commission. As a result the overhead was reduced $295,000 a year. He exposed the junketing trips of 3ttate officials to the East at state expense. State and county officials were getting ten cents a mile traveling expenses.: He openly branded the mileage a "shameless graft." He caused a reduction to eight cents a mile; then to six cents a mile and finally to four cents a mile in the state and four and a half in the county. No longer do county commissioners put in 175 days a year "inspecting roads" at ten cents a mile and five dollars a day. No county commissioner now drives to Portland and charges the county ten dollars for the use of his 'car when the round trip fare is two dollars. No commissioner now goes to Donald and puts in the entire day there as .director in a fire relief association and then charges the county $5 for "attendance in court," "mileage to Donald and return, fifty miles at ten cents a mile ?5, dinner fifty cents," total to the county $10.50, and then collects five dollars from the association for services as director, a total for the days work of $15.50. No longer does a sheriff get $7 a week for boarding prisoner when the law allows only $4.50 a week. And so Mr. Keyes' campaign manager, Mr. Carson, ex-county commissioners, Mr. Trindle, some state officials and ex-state officials, ex-sheriffs and all who have so used the public funds or hope to use them denounce Judge McMahan, misrepresent what he has done and join in trying to defeat him and elect a man they know will not disturb officers by official interference with their raids upon public funds. And it can be said of Judge McMahan that he is the only official who in season and out of season fights to protect the taxpayers. Every voter who wants good government will support him. A vote against him is a vote to encourage higher taxes. " Judge McMahan Cuts Courts Costs The round trip from Salem to Albany is 54 miles and Judge McMahan's mileage claim has never exceeded $1.30, or less than two and a half cents a mile. Since stage fares have been reduced during the last several years he has charged but one dollar for the round trip, or less than two cents a mile. This,' too, when if he charged the mileage collected by others he would have collected for each round trip $5.40. Judge McMahan's contention is that when an officer uses his car he can charge enly the fare charged by stage companies. This is the law and any charge in excess of the regular fare is graft. Judge McMahan took charge of the equity department, discharge'd the bailiff in Linn County, the bailiff in Marion County, and conducted that court for nine years without a bailiff.

Judge McMahan has always given to those in need and distress a much larger share of his annual salary than his annual salary reduction would have amounted to. He has preferred to have ALL of this money benefit these unfortunate fellow citizens rather than to have a large proportion of it eaten up by state and county overhead and administrative costs as would have been the case with his money paid into the state through his acceptance of the salary cut. The ways and means committee would not give Judge McMahan an opportunity to appear before it. Evidently lt did not want him to make statements and give facts and figures which would be widely published. It takes rare moral courage for an office holder to alone take the stand Judge McMahan did In this matter, but It was a good thing for the impoverished men, women and children who were helped In their distress. - AS TO SALARY In the campaign against Judge McMahan criticism is made of the fact that he refused to accept a reduction in his salary. He did refuse, as has been said, but he gave his reasons. To the joint ways and means committee he sent a letter explaining his position. He wrote that there is waste, extravagance and too often grat in many departments of the public service; that there are probably three office holders where not over two are need- (:,, ed. He suggested that if the committee wanted proof of his allegations . of waste, extravagance and graft he would appear before the committee and prove his statements to be true. He alleged that in one department alone over $3,000,000 had been wantonly wasted within the last ten years. Judge McMahan further advised the ways and means committee that he preferred to use his money to help alleviate the Impoverished condition of the people rather than have it used by the state to pay salaries of useless office holders and other Busy Americans Find Smoking Camels a Pleasant Aid that Help!

To both he is what is called "a disturbing factor" and the "leaders" of both parties agree that he ought to be suppressed. The only trouble about suppressing him. is that he just can't be suppressed. The reason for this is than -most of the rank and file of both political parties like thi way of exposing graft. Every time he has been a candidate he was nominated by both political parties;. The "leaders" could not control the voters. The record does disclose that Judge McMahan has been trying to slop graft. All the men who profited by graft are fighting him. The voter now has a choice. He can fight alongside the grafters or he can endorse the effort made to stop graft. It is complained of Judge McMahan, "He is too much for the under dog." If we had more public officials who have sympathy for the under dog we would have fewer under dogs. The trouble is we have too many men who are always for the top dog and we have, also, too many top dogs. Reprinted from The Capital Press Salem, Oregon. ' A Vote for Judge L. H.
