The lumber workers of Greenville. S~sanville and Veestwood gave Gun- lock, friend of labor, a handsome majority, while the railroad unions of l~rtola, with the endorsement of every one of their organizations, turned ~n only a meager majority for Ounlock. And in ~:eddle, with a big railroad vote, Fulcher drew a vote of more than four to one. O~nlock'~ supporters depend~ed ~POn the railroad workers of Por- t~la and Keddid to carry Plumas county for their candidate, but the poor showing made by the railroad unionfsts tL~rned th~'*co~nty over to Fulcher by a majority of around 150 votes. Had it not been for the lum- ber workers, the candidate of labor would have been snowed under in C~ly three ~'ommuni~les In Plumas county gave Gunlock a represen~a- tfve vote. These communit~es were Cla~rvtlle, La Porte and Green- ville. On the democratic ticket, the only h'L'Fket Which counted in in that Lebmmuntty as a kind of victory. T*or~ ~e Gunlock 192 while Fulcher got 143, a slender majority i L'f 49 votes for the labor candidate i in what is supposed to be the i ~,trongest railroad commun- ity in northeastern California. ~d:ed- ~dle which is also listed as a strong ~r~tiroad community, gave C~nlock i]3 votes while Fuleher received 57. i It is said that the Board of Equal- ization is almost as strong in Po~- to!a as the railroad unions are which may account for tl~e vote in that community. For some reason or other the State Board of Equali- zation, or certath members thereof, l~ave need of an assemblyman who can bc depended upon, and em- ployees of ~"h~ ~oard of ]~qualization maintain that they have always been able to depend upon Fulcher. What they needed him for has nev er been made clear, l~ut certainly there is something concerned with the Board of Equalization which makes it necessary that the mere- bets of the board ~ave need for two icr three loyal assemblymen and a couple of state zenators. This l~,oard of Equalization is somewhat bf a power in politics, and hereto- f~e the board has been able to re- elect Fulcher without much trouble, but in this fight, somebody some- where found it necessary to spend :~cme money for propaganda for their candidate. The board of Equalization-has a way of handling the local saloon owner, too. With but few excep- tions the retail liquor dealers are made to feel that if Une board's can- didate is not elected, dire conse- quences will result. In this cam- paign, the story was circulated among saloon owners, that if ~un- h~ck were elected, a mo-v~ would be made to bring back local option. An attempt was made to explain to li- quor dealers that any candidate would have more sense than to in. dulge in any pastime of this kind, :but it Ss pretty hard to tell a l!quor dealer anything unless you have him under your thumb. According [o the saloon owners, certain employees of the Board of F~lualizatton collect twelve dollars per year from every, person wl~o has a liquor license, for the ostensible purpose of keeping the evil of pro- hibition frdm overrunning the state. As this amounts to some- thing like half a million dollars a year, and but little is spen~ to keep prohibition out, some person cr persona arc grafting this half mil- lion each year, and that may be one lof the reasons why the Board of Equal~zation needs a few friends. The returns in Plumas county in this primary~ce, show pretty con- vincingly how the vote ts controlled hy the Board of Equalization. The Board of Equa~zg:tiofl, thrdug?r :Is local represdntdtlve~, tells the sa- ran keeper'%hat ~~ happen tf the board's candidate is not elected. This frightens the saloon keeper to ruch an extent that he plays poll ties to the utmost of his ability, and as there is no one n most of the smaller communities who is work- ing for the other man, 2he saloon keeper's pleas for votes ~lns out. In this manner, the local bartender m Plumas county 6on{rols ~n elec- tion. The loeal saloon keeper dosen't need anything in the llne of legis- lators. He is running hts business iv decent shape. He has nothing to cover up. It is the higher-ups in the employ of the Board of Equa~II- zatton who need protection. Our advice to the saloon keeper~ is to quit pulling the chestnuts out of the fire for the Board.of *-'qualiza- t~on and also to quit lcsyil~g~ lc~f~ twelve dollars a year graft money. There is going to be no loc~l op- tion. Even ~hd preacher, you poor cbt'mp of ~. $~oon keeper -Would rather have licensed saloons than the good old bootlegging days.
