LEEDS, HON. W. H., State Printer of Oregon, was born in New Jersey about forty years ago. In 1877 he engaged in the newspaper and printing business, and in 1878 founded the Tidings at Ashland, Oregon, which is today one of the leading papers of Southern Oregon and the foremost advocate of Republican principles. Though a constant party worker, he never accepted office until he was nominated for State Printer in 1894.
