Beveridge, In Keynote Speech, Raps
Bosses, And Declares New
Party Will Win In
CHICAGO, Aug. 5 Governor Hir
am W. Johnson, of California, seem
ed agreed upon tonrght as the Vice
Presidential nominee of the Nation
al Progressive party to make the first
fight of the new politcal organization
with Coionel Roosevelt.
Early in the evening Judge BenB.
Lindsey, of Denver, a former Demo
crat, had been agreed upon as perm
anent chairman of the convention.
Colonel Roosevelt had indorsed the
recommendation of Judge Lindsey
and the plan had been enthusiastic
ally approved by the delegates.
Late tonight, however, Judge Lind
sey called on the Colonel and had a
long talk with him.
He said he had been suffering from
asthma and did not feel physically
capable of taking up the work. Un
der the circumstances Colonel Roose
velt agreed to release him.
While it had not been finally decid
ed ,it was said to be likely that ex
Senator Beveridge, the temporary
chairman, would continue as perma
nent presiding officer.
Colonel Roosevelt said, before he
left Oyster Bay, that he favored the
selection of a Southern Democrat as
Vice-Presidential candidate. The field
was canvassed carefully and it is un
derstood that the Colonel's suggestion
was abandoned only when it became
evident that it was impossible to de
cide upon an available man.
It was said tonight that sentiment
among the delegates in favor of Gov
ernor Johnson was so strong that his
choice as Colonel Doosevelt's run
ning mate virtually was assured and
that the leaders who predicted his
nomination were merely voicing the
opinion of the convention.
The California delegation adopted
a resolution today saying the state
could not spare Governor Johnson,
hut it was said tonight the Governor's
friends would not insist on this atti
tude. In the event of Go venor Johnson's
nomination it is planned to have him
take the stump in the East while Col
onel Roosevelt is campaigning
through 'the West. The Governor's
ability as a campaigner is said to
be a strong factor in his favor.
Former Senator Albert J. Beveridge,
of Indiana, was elected temporary
chairman of the convention after Sen
ator Dixon had called the assemblage
to order and prayer had been offer
ed. Senator Beveridge, greeted with
prolonged 'cheers, delivered his key"
note speech bristling with the most
advanced ideas of Progressivism.
Beveridge was cheered all through
his speech, a tumultuous interruption
coming when he assailed the "boss
ridden old parties." "The rulers of the
old parties,' he said, "were invisible."
"They are the invisible govern
ment behind our visible Government,"
he declared. "It is this invisible gov
ernment which is the real danger to
American institutions."
When Beveridge mentioned Presi
dent Taft in connection with the
Payne tarriff law, the Progressive del
egates greeted the name with boos
and jeers.
The floor of the big convetion hall
was crowded and the galleries, slow
to fill at first, held but comparative
ly few empty seats when the conven
tion got under way shortly before 1
o'clock. -
The delegates were most enthusi
astic, frequently interrupting the pro
ceedings with cheers and applause.
The big Coliseum, transformed in a
few weeks from the battleground of
the Republican National convention
to the meeting place of the Progres
sives, was thrown open shortly be
fore 11 o'clock, but it was nearly an
hour after before the first of the del
egates began to arrive. They filtered
in slowly, at first, in ones and twos.
Then came the big phalanx of del
egates from Pennsylvania, singing,
"We'll hang Boies Penrose to a sour

Mayor Dimick Announces That He
And City Attorney Story Will
Take Testimony Of III
After hearing the testimony of two
more witnesses in the case of Police
man Green, charged with striking
Ernest Stinson, who conducts a fish
market, Mayor Dimick announced
Monday night that he would hear the
testimony of Mrs. Irene Eisele, before
rendering a decision. Mrs. Eisele
lives in the alley north of the jail and
it is understood that she will testify
that she heard Stinson call Green a
bad name before the policeman
struck him. The following deposition
of Mrs. Eisele was introduced Mon
day night by Gordon E. Hayes, at
torney for Green, who said that the
witness was too ill to appear at the
"I, Irene Eisele, being duly sworn
on oath, say that I am a resident of
Oregon City, Oregon. That on the
25th of July, 1912, I was sitting on
the front porch of my residence which
is on the north side of the alley near
the city jail. That I am personally
acquainted with Officer S. R. Green
and that there was a man with him
whose name I unde rstand is Stin
son; that said Officer Green did not
use any abusive language toward said
Stinson, and all that I heard was that
Stinson said to Green, (a vulgar epi
thet is here omitted) at which time
Green struck Stinson with his fist
I know that Green only struck Stin
son one blow. This was in the even
ing of said 25th day of July, 1912. I
was about twenty-five feet distant
from the men at the time the blow
was struck. That I have no interest
in this case whatever."
Mayor Dimick asked if Mrs. Eisele's
condition was such that he could
question her at her home and was
told that it was. He then announced
that he and City Attorney Story
would call upon her and obtain her
Perry Lutz, of Clackamas, who was
arrested by Green the night before he
had the altercation with Stinson, cor
roborated Green's statement that he
searched him. the man Stinson, his
daughter and her escort pointed to
as having the gun. "Stinson says they
pointed to the other man, who escap
ed. Lutz and the other man, who es
caped, were accused of having insult
ed Miss Stinson and her escort. The
witness testified that Green asked
Stinson and the other man to aid him
in taking the men to jail.
Ben Huntley, a mill worker, said
that he saw Gree"h strike Stinson.
The witness was positive the police
man called the other man the bad
name. He said Green first pushed
Stinson against a picket fence and
then struck him on the face. Green's
contention is that Stinson called him
a bad name before he dealt him the
PARIS, Aug. 5. Raymond Poinca
ire, the French Premier, started to
day for Russia with all the ceremony
that usually marks a state pilgrimage.
Aristide Briand, Minister of .Justice;
Thebphile Delcasse, Minister of Ma
rine; Albert Le Brun, Minister for the
Colonies; Armand Meelard, Chief of
Protocol; Louis Lepine, Prefect of
Police of Paris; the Secretaries and
attaches of the Russian embassy and
the staff of the French Foreign office
were all present at the station to em
phasize the occasion, while in the
Premier's train traveled all the lead
ing journalists of France, who always
mobilize when questions of high pol
itics are in the air.
Near-Easter questions and the Franco-Russian
Naval convention, the sig
nature of which M. Poincaire in St.
Petersburg will bring the whole of
the fighting forces of the allies with
in the terms of an offensive and de
fensive alliance, are to be the main
subjects of discussion between the
Emperor of. Russia, Segius Sazanoff,
Russian-Minister for Foreign Affairs
and the French visitor.
The most prominent feature of the
visit will be the Franco-Russian Na
val agreement, which will claim im
mediate attention.
The eventual opening of the Darda
nelles, and the steps necessary for
its accomplishment, also are to be
discussed during the fourteen days'
visit of M. Poincaire.
It is pointed out here that this is
likely to be the burning question In
the settlement of the Turco-Italian
War. for it Is felt that Russia is not
building $15,000,000 dreadnoughts In
the Black Sea with the intention of
anchoring them in an enclosed lake,
nnd unless the question is settled
soon ,it ' is bound to caufce another
EuroDean upheaval at the time of the
completion of the ships a couple of
years hence.

daily paper. The Enterprise should

Henry Walter, convicted nf re
tributing to the negligence of Ottie
nainuu, was nnea $ou ana sentenced
to serve one year in jail by County
Judge Beatie Monday. Upon the pay
ment of the fine the young man was
paroled with instructions to report
to Dr. T. B. Ford, pastor the Metho
dist church, weekly for sixty days
and after that to report to Dr. Ford
every two weeks. Mrs. C. J. Parker
court matron, Monday sent the girl
to the home of her brother at Gate

arrested the young man.
SALEM, Or. Aug.-5. Scathingly de
nouncing Moyar Charles A. Norther,
of Huntington, for railure to enforce
the laws of that city against gambling
blind pigs, and disreputable houses,.
Governor West today declared that
he would demand that the Mayor ask
for the resignation of W. J. Wood,
the police judge, and that he is also
considering the advisability of hav
ing Norther resign as Mayor. He
declared further that he would use
his influence to see to it that North
er was deprived of his position as
cashier of the Huntington Bank.
"A man who will take the oath of
office to enforce the laws "and then
fails is hardly the man who will com
ply with the banking laws," declared
the Governor. "A man who will
stand by and permit tinhorns and sa
loon bums to rob parents of their
children does not appear to me to be
the proper person with whom these
same families should intrust their
savings. I, as a member of the Bank
ing Commissioner, propose to see that
no bank is operated by a public of
ficial giving protection to crooks, eith
er by the failure to enforce the law
or otherwise. The way Huntington
has been run is a stench in the nos
trils of all decent people. Every
body, honest enough, admits this.
While conditions are somewhat im
proved, they are still bad enough to
warrant radical action by this office
unless the officials show a different
spirit than they have in the past."
Mayor Norther Quits
HUNTINGTON, Or., Aug. 5, (Spe
cial.) Mayor Norther resigned today
but would make no comment on the
statement of Governor West.
$50,000 FUND RAISE
NEW YORK, Aug. 5 A poilce
fund of $50,000 is being raised for the
defense Of Charles Becker, the po
lice lieutenant charged with instiga
ting the murder of Herman Rosenthal
according to information in the hands
of District Attorney Whitman. -
The money is being collected, it is
said, by the so-called "system," which
is to be investigated by the District
Attorney, who believes that between
the "system" and the gambling
fraternity" there is a corrupt alliance
founded on graft and blackmail.
Information tof the $50,000 fund
came to the prosecutor in connection
with the arraignment today of Beck
er to answer the indictment against
him. In the legal proceedings, which
included the withdrawal by Becker
of his plea of "not guilty' to offer
motions to invalidate the indictment,
the prisoner was represented by three
lawyers, one of whom mystriously
withdrew, while the others seemed
doubtful of their own status when the
proceedings were over. It was said
the lawyers were not satisfied with
the collectors of the defense fund.

districts have determined to combine
in securing a man who can impart
the knowledge necessary for the
maintainence of a complete course In
