"Bill" Hanley of Burns, progressive candidate for the United States senate and native son of Jackson County, is in the city today in the interests of his candidacy, being escorted about by Attorney Fred W. Mears, candidate for congress from this district on the progressive ticket. He is accompanied by Colonel Emmett Callahan, formerly of Baker, now of Portland.
Mr. Hanley's campaign keynote is "Progress," and desires that a hundred million be spent in the development of Oregon irrigation and land projects without waiting another century or so. He wants to see the awakening while the present registered voters are all alive.
Mr. Hanley will go tomorrow to Grants Pass and return to attend the tri-county banquet of the Commercial Club and be one of the speakers.
