Under this head we intend to run a little news each

It is definitely stated that the
Oregonian's “picked” bunch were really
picked by Mr. Pipher, l)an Malarky,
John Ijigan, Jav Bo.ernian, and David
Drum. The so-called 100 really did
not request the "Oregonian’s candi
dates" to rnn. On the other hand hav
ing chosen the bunch, the five gentle
men above named proceeded to secure
endoisements. It is denied in many
' instances that endorsers knew they
were to be published as indorsing all
"the Oregonian’s twelve," but rather,

There was some talk of an organiza-
I lion among the twentv-five men who
are running regularly, but most of the
candidates consider that would lie un
necessary. Others favored a reduction
of tbe number by some mutually a g re e
able plan of elimination.
majority however, so far as have been
interviewed, favor leaving it to the
voters to do the eliminating. They
feel that the public is competent to
make its own selection, and if it pre
