Jlctaal Fighting Vessels at Lewis and
Clark Centennial.
For the Lewis and Clark Centen
nial, the United States government
will make an absolute unique nav
al exhibit. Instead of confining
its exhibits of warships entirely to
miniature models, the government
will station a number of her largest
and finest men of war in the Wil
lamette river, adjoining the Fair
grounds. These vessels will be
open to the public for certain per
iods each day, and launches will
carry visitors to and from them, in
order that the people may see for
themselves just what a modern war
ship look3 like, how it is construct'
ed, equipped, manned and control!
ed. ,
As the Government buildings
are located on a peninsula, which
is connected to the narrow strip of
mainland separating the Willam
ette river and Guilds Lake, the
natural 'grand basin" ot the Ex
position, access to the warships in
the river from the river from the
grounds is made easy, and the con
venient location of the ships makes
it certain that they will prove a
most popular attraction.
The exhibit which the navy de
partment will make in the United
States government building will be
complete in every detail, and in
teresting to everyone. It - will ' in
clude large models, from eight to
ten feet in length, which cost the
government $8,000 to $10,000 each,
and which wil embrace every type
of warship, from the greatest battle
ship to the little Holland submar
ine torpedo boat. This array of
models will include reproduction of
the Maine, which was sunk in Ha
vana harbor; the Brooklyn, Admir
al Schley's flagship at Santiago;
the Olympic, Dewey's flagship at
Manilla; besides the Oregon, New
York, Missouri, Columbia, Kear
sarge, Iowa, Newark, St. ' Louis,
Texas, Arkansas, Nashville, Ches
peake, Helena, Tacoma, and An
napolis and others. ' .

Effect of Tanner Confession Sena
torial Timber The Trump
Burns Played.
Salem, February 14. John H.
Mitchell, whose name has stood for
so much of leadership in Oregon
politics for 40 years, is a fallen
chieftain. His ioes shout it from
the house tops and- his friends ad
mit it. His most loyal supporters
are crushed beneath the weight of
the Tanner confession. . By that
token, the whole fabric of the Mit
chell defense, so far as public sen
timent is concerned, has fallen with
a crash. The old time senator
himself is in the heap of debris,
and cannot be extricated. The
collapse is such that even his best
friends wish the; man would resign
from the Senate. They know that
his influence is gone, and that he
cannot be of further value to his
state. His very presence in Wash
ington and his unoccupied seat will
tend, they say, to keep before the
public current incidents that they
are beginning to want to forget.
Then there is the fear that his fast
multiplying troubles .may break
down his health and vacate his seat
at an inopportune time. They fail
to realize that the seat occupied by
an appointed democrat would be
infinitely more creditable to the
state than a seat unoccupied because
the encumbent is under indictment
for a felony. . What they do know
is that if their fallen idol would
only resign and get out of the way.
another Senator from the Mitchell
faction could be elected and a
chance be given for the nation at
large to forget all ' this dreadful
business. It is a question of rid
dance, riddance, for a man who a
few short months ago . stood high
in public esteem as any man in
Oregon, , riddance for a man who,
until those fatal months had. been
for decades a factor in the nation,
and riddance . for him at a time
when he is an old, - old man,
when by every law of life his hours
should be full of honor. But that
Senator Mitchell will not resign is
regarded as certain. ' "If he lives,
the opinion here is, that he will
serve out his term. It might take
as long a period as that to deter
mine his case in the courts. While
his case pended, it is considered
unlikely that the Senate would act.
That body would be slowr in any
event, to act against a man who
has been for forty years one of its
most popular and most influential
members. , The friendships of a
lifetime and the associations that
knit men together by powerful ties,
would be involved in any move
ment in the Senate itself to oust
the old Senator from his seat.
The fine stratagem by which
Judge Tanner was led into his late
confession, has become known to a
few people. W. J. Burns, who is
in fact, the wizard that collects all
the damaging evidence in the land
fraud prosecutions, was tne central
figure in the incident. - Burns is
described as a man that would be
overlooked by all who might be in
search of him. His shoes are but
half blacked and bis over coat is
more ordinary han would be ex
pected in the chief of the United
States secret service. Hi3 suit is
not more than ordinary and his hat
may, be . a cap or a very common
hat. Whether by design, or by
accident, it is a fact that his appear
ance would not suggest rMr. Burns
to be the magician, the sleuth, the
ferret, .the dreaded diviner who is
apparently reading the innermost
thoughts and certainly discovering
the most private transactions of
men of high and low degree alike.
A thing known of him is that at a
given moment he may be in the
federal court room, and in the next
instant, nowhere to be found. He
disappears, not by magif, but so
quietly and 'swiftly that nobody
notices. But when Mr. Heney
wants him, there he is. Not only
is he there, but he has at his finger
tips every damaging fact that Mr.
Heney wants to hurl at the men,
whom developments apparently
show, have been doing a lot of
crooked things. ' Such is Mr.
Burns, whose raid upon the gang
at their work has sent the whole
nation agog with sensation and
kept it keyed up to a high pitch of
expectation for many weeks past.
Judge Tanner confessed , because
Mr. Burns put him in a positson
where . there was . nothing else for
the man to do. A' certain' contract
between Senator Mitchell and Judge
Tanner purported to set forth the
agreement under which their part
nership was conducted. This con
tract purported to hive been made
in 1901. It was the main reliance
of Mr. Mitchell in -his defense in
the - most serious charge against
him. In the hands of Burns, the
contract itself has. become, at the
bar at least of public opinion,1 the
most damaging evidence of guilt.
With Mr. Heney. Mr. Burns
went to Judge Tanner's house in
Portlandr The lawyer was told
that in evidence before the grand
jury, when he asserted that the
written contract was executed in
1901, he had 'perjured himself. '
Then he was told that, out of con
sideration" fcr his character, stand
ing and the difficult situation in
which he had been , placed, one
more chance would be given him to
straighten himself out. Of course
Judge Tanner -was angry, and he
was not slow to say so. Then Mr.
Burns produced the famous con
tract. He struck a match and
lighted the gas. He held the docu
ment between himself and the light,
and called Judge Tanner to his side
to look. "In this contract which
you say was executed in 1901,. do
you see the words in the water
mark, "The Whiting Paper Com
pany." Judge Tanner admitted
that he did and then he turned pale
as Mr Burns pointed out, the date
"1904" The figures.indicated the
year in which the paper on which
the contract was written, was man
ufactured. To make the. case com
plete, Mr. Burns exhibited to his
victim a telegram from the Whiting
PaperCompany, stating that, the
water mark in their paper product
was always changed on the first of
January in each year, and that the
paper referred to was manufactured
during the year 1904. Judge Tan
ner had sworn before a federal
grand jury that the identical paper
had been used by himself and Sen
ator Mitchell in making their law
partnership contract in 1901. There
was nothing else in the world for
him to do but go to the court and
plead guilty.
McBride is a name oft mentioned
at the state house now. If the
great joy of naming a successor to
Mitchell could come suddenly to
this legislature, it is considered cer
tain that McBride would be the
man. 5 He trains with that wingof
his party that is in the ascendency
in the legislative assembly. Tongue
is gone and Fulton is senator. So
great a man as J. N. Dolph was
killed off once to make Mr. Mc
Bride a senator. That was a great
compliment to Mr. McBride and it
must mean that he has powers not
to be despised. There are other
facts too that suggest such powers.
Mr. McBride maintained himself
for eight years as Oregon' s secre
tary of state. " Theri came the six
years in the senate, and at the end
of the term, a $5,000 a year posi
tion on the St. Louis commission
appointive, by no less a. man than
the distinguished Mr. Roosevelt It
need be no wonder, accordingly, if
at a moment .when the Mitchellites
are wishing secretly and oftimes
openly that their old chief would
get off, that the. name of McBride
Is on sundry and divers lips. If he
could be elected now, he could with
Mr. Fulton so strengthen the Mitch
ell machine and so defend it that
it may not collapse and pass tem
porarily out of power, because of
the shock to its vitality by these
late bad doings of its great sacb.7
ems. - '.
One of the appropriation bills,
carrying $65,000 for a woman's
building and drill shed at OAC,
passed the House at three o'clock
Monday afternoon. No question
or cavil was raised. The item was
simply read by the clerk, and a
motion made that the sum be al
lowed. The vote was unanimous.
The same bill carried a large ap
propriation for the state university,
with no allowance however, . for
duplication of work at OAC,
In the House this morning the
governor s veto of the Port of
Portland bill was sustained. , The
morning session adjourned, until
10 o'clock tomorrow. The local op
tion bill is still in the -hands of the
committee on education, consisting
of Ioughary, Jayries and Pierce.
