WILL NOT RESIGN
continued fron page one
might have bwrj different, it ie pre
dicted. If a delegation r.f the business-meD
had gone to the senator
some time ago, before aoy sgitatoo
had bef cieated, snd if these men
had suggpsted that, for the welfare
of the stale and its future, it wa
beet for S na'nr Mitchell t step
aside, euch action might have borne
fruit, though tb s, too, is doubtful
.1 . L- 1 11
in the minaa 01 mose wuu euuum
W ile ths Fenatop txpretses no
opinion one way or the other, it ie
argued by those who hive been his
confidant ihit the resignation of
the senator aid the con qnent ap
pointrriet.t of a democrat by Gover
nor Chtmberlaia to fill the vacan
cy would do n 1 good to the state at
this t:me. I'- is contended tbat no
mir, no matter how strong in per-
s-u ality or barked by what tower,
could go f'rp-h into the & tints poe-
. e Eed of ir.flaer or sr ngta. And
no m tter botf stroDg the ruse, bis
appointment as a demo-Tat would
in a great m-iiicure annul h:s cBpic
it? f r pf rv;ce.
Senator Mitchell n edc the office,
it is taid, to cany bt- c. ss to its
final adjudication before the su-p-err.e
court. Hi is not only bro
ken i 1 J e lib hut in wealth as well.
Tje txpencis of the trial were
te'vj ar.d the costs of the supreme
court are not light. 1 he bnet sub
mitted by th defense was a volum
inous document of some 800 jaee
prepared at a cost of virtually
1,000. Added t) this aie many
o'hT expense" all of which drain
heavily upon the puree, and tom-et
these calls reouires that Senator
Mitchell have an income. Without
the ea'ary coming from bis offic,
which he still holds, there would
be no funds to meet the expanses of
the appeal upon which the Bena'or
bases his stle remaining hope.
'But what do Senator Mitchell a
friends think of the resignation
question?" is the question asked,
nd the answer comes in a pessim
"Friends?" Wnere are his
friends? Who are they that they
did Dot seek after his welfare while
he rested an aged and a eick man
in the hospital with a broken rib?
If that accident bad come before
this trouble a special man would
have had to be stationed at the
hospital door with a basket to take
the cards tbat would have been sent
np. There are no friends to think
of hiB resignation."
Through all of the discussion
Senator Mitchell goes his way si
lently. He will neither deny nor
affirm. He refuses to make any
statement to forecast any future
happening. He is uncommunica
tive and he is unlikely to resign.
Philadelphia, No. 1. At a meet
ing of the Geographical Society of
Philadelphia tonight, the president,
Henry G. Bryant, the' well-known
explorer, made the announcement
that two of the Bryant-Melville
ca?k- which were sent adrift sever
al years ago in the Polar Sea have
turned up. It was suggested some
years ago by Rear-Admiral Gaorge
W. Melville that valuble data con
cernios the tpeed and direction of
Arctic currents might be obtained
by Betting adrift specially construct
ed caeka in the Arctic Ocean. Ad
mlral Melville and Mr. Bryant had
5O casks constructed and thrown
overboard by United S ates revenue
cutters and whaling ships.
Mr. Bryant announced that he
had j ast beard from two of tbe casks
The first was thrown overboard bv
tbe revenue cutter Bear on August
2I, 1901, about 85 miles northwest
of Wrangle Island, and recovered
by Captain A. G. Christianson on
August 17, 1902, near tbe mouth
Kolyching Bay on the coast of Si
beria. In the course of oca year
less four days, it had traveled 380
miles to tbe southeast, and was
probably influenced by local cur
The other cask was placed on an
ice floe northwest of Point Barrow,
Alaska, in latitude 71:53 N. and
longitude 164:s0 W., by the steam
whaler Alexander on September 13,
i899. It was recovered one mile
east of Cape Banda Nuhr, ou the
Northern coast of Iceland, June 7,
1905. Mr. Bryant said the position
of the second caek proved the ex
istence of a current from Bshring

Warsaw, Nov. 2. Poland is
aronsed again, and another attempt
is being made to regain independ
ence. Rioting is now in progress
in every section of Russian Poland,
and the people are shooting down
without mercy soldiers of the czar
attempting to interfere with their
freedom and speech.
Dozens of processions of socialists
and anti RusBiaBS have been pass
ing through the streets during . the
past 24 hours, and all 1 efforts on
the part of the authorities to check
them have so far been without
avail. There have been a number
of d llisions between soldiers and
the popalacp, but in nearly every
instance the uniformed men have
been forced to retreat and lewe the
mob in poseeeeioo of the thorough
fare. Not since the last unsuccessful
revolutionary movement wes stamp
ed out through the traitorism of
members of it e committee of free
dom has PjlanJ been so inflamed.
Funds there are in plenty, thanks

Salem, Or., O t. 31. "There is
n us mincing matters any longer,"
said S ate Senator Squire Farra-,
in discusaine tha resignations ot
Sentt r Mitchell end Representa
tives Williamson and Hermann.
"I br.v-! stood up lor there men un
til today and have condor. ed all
their offenses, as have the people of
tbia stU, but the position uken by
tbe Oregonian today in its leading
editorial is exactly right and prop
er and tbe tbree men under a cloud
should resign. It is iiot a question
of guilt or innocpnee. These men
can be of r,o further service tn tbe
ttate as representatives at Wash
ington and they should make way
for men who can go there and look
after tbe state's interest1'. I pre
sume Governor C amberla;n would
appoint a democrat to fill tbe va
cancy if one existed. So far as I
can see, that would do no barm. It
is better for us tJ have a good dem
ocrat for senator than a bad repub
lican. If Mitchell, Williamson and
Hermann consider tbe welfare of
tbe state and of the republican party
they will resign."
C lfax, Wash., Oct. 30. Myrtle
Tipton, the 18-year-old girl horse
thief, who stole three horses, a wag
on and harness from Lolo, a Cneur
d'Alene Indian, for whom she had
been working as a boy farmhand, is
an Oregon girl, having been born
at Roseburg, where she lived with
her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph
Tipton, until two years ago. She
pleaded guilty today to the charge
of bringing stolen property into the
state. Judge Chad wick would not
accept her plsa, but postponed th
case, and will appoint an attorney
to look after her interest".
Myrtle declared she does not want
an attorney, and boasted that she
is too old to be sent to the Reform
School, but most go to' the peniten
tiary. Strangely enough, although
she declares she prefers male to te
male attire, she spent the entire
suai, $225, received from the sale of
tl team and wagon, for female at
Myrtle is the youngest ofninechil
(Wo. She bas six sisters and two
blithers. Her parents have sepa
rn' d, and she remained with her
fa ter, working with him io the
I t'veet fields and on the farme,
v. r.re he worked a a laborer. Since
b;. -vest, during which she drove a
h-ader wagon, she had been plow
ins; for Lolo, and an Indian on tbe
Coeur d'Alene reservation with the
three horses she stole.
Tbe girl told the Oregonian cor
respondent, in tbe presence of sev
eral officers, of her theft and flight
with the team, and made no effort
to conceal anything. Her father
is now in Walla Walla, and her
mother in North Yakima.
