The conventions, nevertheless, are
attracting the attention of politicians
the country over. They are the first
state conventions of the year to be
held anywhere in the north or west.
Furthermore, they are held In a state
which has furnished some of the most
conspicuous leaders of the "insurgent"
movement In the republican party and
at the same time still Interests the
democrats as the home state of Wil

Unless all signs go astray the repub

republicans are badly split. The reg

chosen before long and this tends to
still further complicate the situation In
the republican party. Congressman

Portland where he was called by the
sudden death of his brother, Tad S

As Governor Aldrich . has been ap

view to bringing out the governor as a
candidate for senator, the Aldrich and
Rosewater interests are to some extent
In sympathy. At the same time, how

of Taft. while Aldrich leans toward La

Wausau, Wis., July 25. Wages, in

the general outlook In the lumber
trade were among the subj cts discus
sed at the summer meeting of the
Northern Hemlock and Hardwood

New York, July 25. That a $10,000,
000 National City company to be oper
ated by the directions ot the; National
City bank, was organized to nullify the
supreme-court' bust decision In the
Standard il and American Tobacco
cases is reported today on Wall street.
It is ascertained the new company will
be a holding company for both trusts.
The trusts, it is reported, will be split
Into their integral concerns, confirm
ing the decision and then the National
will control them Indirectly.
The stock of the bank and the Na
tional company will be interlocked so
the owners of stock In both concerns
must sell both stocks or none at all.
When the reorganization plan ot the
oil and tobacco trusts is announced it
is believed all stocks of the compan
ies composing the two trusts be turn
ed back to their original owners with
a similar : interlocking clause which
will effectually prevent the sale of
any single stock but will allow the
sale ot all or none, This will hold
the trusts virtually Intact.
