LOS ANGELES. Aug. 8. James J.
Jeffries, former heavyweight cham

two particulars, both of them amend
ments by Senator Burton. One pro
vides that candidates for tba House
might be nominated In tha same man
ner as candidates for tha governor
ship. The other was that redisricting-
shall be done by state legislatures
except In those states where the Initia
tive and referendum Is In force, where
these laws might ba' Invoked.
Under the Burton amendments, the
Inltlatlve.and referendum may be used
In states where popular government
laws are In force. The proviso for
nomination In the same way gover
nors are nominated Is also a practi
cal recognition of direct nomination,
the primary laws of most states being
based on the nomination of candidates
New Districts Created.
Tha bill as paaaed provides for an
increase in representation as follows;
Alamaba, 1; California, 2; Colorado,
1; Florida, 1; Georgia. 1; Idaho. 1;
Illinois. 2: Louisiana, 1; Massachus

ma, 3; Oregon, 1; Pennsylvania, 4:
Rhode Island. 1: South Dakota, 1:
Utah. 1 West Virginia.. 1; Texaa, 2;
In the twenty-one other states now
admitted there Is no change In repre
sentation. Tha bill provides for one
representative each from Aiisona and
New Mexico when admitted.
An amendment by Root (Rep., New
York) to retain the present member
ship In the House waa defeated, 23
to 47. 'An amendment by Gronna
(Rep., North Dakota) to make it 405
was beaten, 22 to 47. The two amend
ments were Intended to reduce) the
Southern Democratic representation,
which would be Increased by the re
apportionment aa adopted.
Action on the reapportionment bill,
which will doubtleas be promptly
signed by the president, makes it car
tain that Oregon will have three Con
gressmen hereafter. The Oregon lee
lslature last winter passed a law divid
ing the state Into three districts In
anticipation of the act of Congress.
At tha primaries next April, there
fore, each of tha two principal parties
will nominate three candidates for
Congress, one from Eastern Oregon,
one from Multnomah county, and one
from the counties west of tba Cas
cades with tha exception of Multno
mah. Old Baals to ba Used.
It is presumed that the old appor
tionment baala will be used as the
basis for election of delegates to the
national conventions of tha great par
ties, aa the new apportionment does
not tske effect until the next Con
gress is ushered in. The next Con
gress, for which nominations will be
made next spring, will not be elected
until November, 1912. - Under the
old apportionment Oregon will have
eight delegates to each national con
vention, being twice the number of
senators and representatives.
Multnomah -county will comprise
the third congressional district under
the new apporionraent. Tha complete
apportionment of tha state Is as fol
lows: First Benton, Clackamas, Clatsop.
Columola, Coos, Curry, Douglas, Jack
son, Josephine, Lane, Lincoln, Linn,
Marion, Polk, Tillamook, Washington
Second Baker, Crook. Gilliam,

Dye Racaivea Orders.
Tb orders to proceed with tha mus

by Lieutenant Commander Edwar-'.s.
rankjng officer of the Oregon Naval
Information was received at tha
Militia Headquarters that Lieutenant
Wolcott G. Hall, of tha regular navy,
has bean assigned permanently to the
Cruiser Boston by the Navy Depart
ment. Lieutenant Hall la on board
the Boston and ready to begin his
duties. There , is a possibility that
another officer will be assigned to the
Boston also to co-operate with Lieu
tenant Halt. '
Acting Ensign Dye, who Is tha only
member of the Oregon City Division
with any technical training In naviga
tion and the other departments of tha
work will probably ba made a junior
lieutenant and be placed in charge of
the division. An ensign also will be
elected, the local boys stating their
preference, but the appointment will
only go to a person who can qualify.
Tha business session will ba presid
ed oer by Harry Miller, president of
tha temporary organization. Mora
than forty boys have signad th mem
bership blanks and with tha others
who want to enlist there la little
doubt that Oregon City will have one
of the best divisions in the state.
The local organization virtually will
be a civil organization, having a mili
tary drill, and on shipboard will prob
ably lose its individuality In tha for
mation of tha ahlp'a company.
Proposed Band Interests
Much Interest has been manifested
In the proposed division, and espec
ially by musicians who expect to ba
members of tha band. There Is a fine
chance to organize a local band with
wider affiliations than can ba ac
complished by a strictly local club.
Three uniforms will be Issued to each
member of tl' band, making the cost
of organization virtually nothing and
insuring the band a fine appearance
at a minimum of expense. The band
would also have the benefit of a first
clasa leader. It could always operate
aa a separate band and. only when
co-operating with the Portland Divi
sion Band, would the Identity be
merged In that of the central organl
ctalon. The Naval Mllltla Band that played
at tho Chautauqua Assembly waa con
nected with the Portland Division but
the money earned went to the musical
organization to divide or to spend on
the organization. The same rule would
apply to the Oregon City boys.
Lieutenant Humphreys and Yeoman
Beckwtth of the Portland Division will
be present officially tonight to repre
sent the Oregon Naval Mllltla and
several others will probably coma P
also as tha Portlanders are much in
