fAUM, Or., Jan. 27. Mr. Fulton whs
content today to show merely that lie
had his (ones well in hand. If he haJ
planned sn aaeault iion the entrench
menta u( the opptwition, he abandoned
it before the Joint convention. If he ex

This is probably the most featureless
senatorial contest in the recent historv o(
the siate. Ihe lobby is smaller, the in
terest apparently less, and the tactics of
the various managers are not spectacular
or pyrotechnic in the faintest decree. It
is a. hard pull all around, and a very
qmet one, though it may be a long one.

Oi.yjipia, Wash., San. 28 The great
est feurttorlai tight ever held in the stale
of Washington came lo a sudden end
this evening, when Levi Ankeny received
ti e republican caucus nomination for
United Statea senator. When the term!
' greatest" is used it means considerable j
at Olympia, fur there have lieen some i
contents that w ill live in the political
history of the state, but ad things con-:
fiilered, the h'g tight that was ended to
night lijfl never had an equal.
It Mas the thiid tune ir. Ankeny had
sought the nomination, and he has pro
titled ty the mistakes that have lost him
Hie nomination in the pat. and this
lime came dow n to Olyinpiu with the
lined or;in ZHUun I lint ever assembled
lor the purine of landing a candidate.
The outcome of the tun test could not
well be anything but Ankeny'a election
or a deadlock. This situation, from
w hich there was no escape, was practic
ally iidmilled by his opponents a week
ago. and since that time all of their en
ergies have been centered in trying to
rriug about a deadlock, and once or
tw ice they have come verv close to ac
complishing the end sought. There was
a decided aversion to deadlocks among
some ol t.'ie anti Ankeny men, and the
failure of Preston to tie them up so as to
to complete hia deadlock weakened his
candidacy to such an extent that he has
never been a dangerous adversary si far
as the ossibility of his election was con
cerned. Aided by John L. Wilson and
Governor Moltrnle, however, he has
caused the Ankeny people mauv anxious
moments in the pait two weeks.
Salem, Or, Jan. 2J. Senator Farrar,
of Marion, left the Geer column today
and joined bis fortunes w ith Senator Fill
ton. The total of the Clatsop county
senator is now 33 and he ia still 11 or 12
short of an election, not counting his
own vote. Representative Hume is sup
posed to bave left San Francisco Mondav
for altni, and if he arrive! tomorrow he
will swell the rulton aggregation to 34.
Representative Adams has not come,
and It is not know n definitely when be
will be here, if at all. He ia claimed by
both Fulton and Geer.
If be comes, Adams will relieve Mr.
Fulton of somewhat curious dilemma,
however the Umatilla county represents.
tive may decide to line up. There are 90
members ol the legislature, and a major
ity of all present and voting in joint con
vention is sufficient to choose a United
States senator. If all others are present
and voting, it is obvious that Senator
Fulton loses nothing by absenting him
self, for 89 will be left and 45 will then
he suhVitJut. If Adams remains away,
Fulton can prevent the loss of bis own
vote only by coming in and voting for
himself. In other words, with Fulton
and Adams nut, it will still take 4j to
elect. If Mr. Fulton were then to be
present and vote for a fr iend, he would
ba voting against himself and would int
help to make the number necessary to
make a choice less than 45.
It is not probabable, though, that Mr.
Fulton is at the (present time giving him
himself any great concern about this in
teresting phase of the situation. He can
cross that bridirn when he comes lo it, if
he ever does He thinks if he can ever
get 44 he will have no great trouble get
ting the balance, whether it is 45 or 4d,
and in that event be will not have to
draw on the reserve strength which be
carries in his own vote.

r-enator Kuykendall, of Lane, intro
duced In the senate this morning two
measures which together are calculated
10 keep the salaries of the governor, sec
retary of stio and ili Mate t easurer
strictly within t ie provisions of the con
stitution and yet provide them with suf
ficiently liberal 'compensation f rr their
The first of these measures provides
for the abolishment of the boards of
trustees of the state reform school, the
blind school and the deaf-mute school,
and the creation of a state board of con
trol composed of the governor, secretary
of state and state treasurer, which shall
goern and control the state insane asy
lum, the penitentiary, the reform school,
the blind school, the deaf-mute school
and the soldiers' home, and this board
of control shall e eras all the functions
and fulfil all the duties of the various
hoards and officers now goveaning those
institutions. An annual appropriation
ol $10 000 is provided to com peusate tbe
board of control for their services.
The second bill provides that the gov
ernor, secretary of state and state treas
urer shall receive annual salaries of $1")00,
$ 1000 and tSOO respectively, these being
their constitutional salaries, and they
shall receive no fees whatever in addition
Should these two bills pass, the total
income of the governor from the state
would be about $4,900, that of the seire
tary of state the same, and that of the
state treasurer about $4,100 a year. It
is proposed that the new order of tl ing-i
take effect at the entry to office of the
officers to be elected in 1906.
Canton, 0., Jan. 27. President Roose
velt toniaht participated in a notable
tnbuie to the memory of the late Presi
ded McKiuley. He was tbe principal
orator at a banquet given under tbe aus
pices of the Canton Republican League

McKinJey. Surrounded by friends,
neighbors and business and political as
sociates of the dead president, he pro
nounced a brilliant and eloquent eu'og-y

beautiful and heartfelt tribute ever heard

The banquet was held in ttie ti-anit

five pieces furnished niusn: at intervals.
The occasion was the m ef brilliant of
its kind ever witnessed in Canton, and

beatuy, elaborateness and inlerer-t.
Among the 4-x assembled atiout tne
boards were some of the most diatin
