Stanley, of Union County, were elected

alternates were named, end a Congres
sional committee was selected, all In the
brief space of one hour and a quarter.
It was significant that no effort was made
to instruct the Philadelphia delegates as
to their choice of President. It was like
wise significant that Senator Simon's
election was unanimous, and that he was
the only Oregon Congressman selected by
the Republican party to represent them
In the National convention. The election
of Mr. Simon may be regarded as endorse-,
ment by bis party of his course In Con
gress, especially on the Puerto Rico ques-tion-
It was shortly after 10 o'clock when
the convention was called to order by
Wallace McCamant, chairman of tbo dis

He says there are 00 boats ready to start
out with drift nets to capture the Chinook

the fishermen and cannerymen believe
that the seicon will open with a better '
run of fish than last Spring. There arc

price of Chinook at 6 cents per pound, said
Mr. Harder yesterday. "It remains to be
seen whether the canr.erymen and cold
ntoratre neoDle can afford or will care to
pay this price. It is possible that slightly
lower prices may prevail In the beginning
of the season, but I do not ever expect to
see Chinook salmon sold lower than S
cents per pound.
"The Harry Morse, a large bark, has
been fitted out with a complete salmon
canning outfit. She will proceed at once
to Yes Bay, Alaska, where the adventur
ous crew expect to put up between 30.C01
and 45,000 cases, and then return to Asto
ria with the pack. About 10) Chinamen
expect to nccompany the vessel, who will
put up the catch. The expedition expects
to return the latter part of July or the
early part of August.
"George Sanborn Is fitting up a large
cannery next to Elmore's packing-house.
He is not In the combine, and will do busi
ness entirely Independent of It. It Is un

Orchard at Illalock's Which. Promises
C R. Smcad, who has ICO acres In
orchards at Blalocks, on tho line of the
O. R. & N was In the city yesterday,
and brought to tho permanent exhibit
headquarters a. number of twigs from his
peach trees, to show the fine set of fruit
on them. The little peaches are about
tho size of a bean, and In many cams
there are two or three on a single stem,
and the fruit, if It should all come to
maturity, would break all the limbs off
the tree. Mr. Smcad Intends to prune his
trees severely, and then thin out the fruit
on the boughs left, as he says tho time to
prune for fruit Is after the peaches have
set, while the time to prune for wood or
to shape the tree Is In the Fall.
His apricot trees ore loaded with fruit
about the size of a hickory nut, and his
apricots will be ready for market early
In June. He has 1700 cherry trees, of the
Royal Ann. May Duke and Kentish varie
ties, and there Is a wonderful showing
of fruit on them as large as peas. Pears,
plums and prunes are all set, and his
apples itro now setting. Thero has been
no frost at his place to hurt anything,
even his melon plants, which were raised
under glass and planted out. not having
been touched by frost. Ho has a num
ber of peach trees of the old-fashioned
"Squaw" variety, the fruit of which Is the
best kind for putting up, though not so
fine for eating raw as some other varie
ties. Mr. Fletcher, who has a peach orchard
on a bench on the bank of tho Columbia,
was at the exhibit headquarters at the
same time, and says prospects are favor
able for a remarkably fine crop of fruit
on his place. Similar reports come from
all parts of this section.
TOO MANY CONVENTIONS.
Hotel Men Couldn't Handle the
Several of the principal hotel-keepers
ot Portland are hoping that state conven
tions will be held ono at a time here
after. They say the past week has been
a very busy one for them, but they would
rather nof be quite so overcrowded, and
business might then b strung out over
two or three weeks. "With four conven
tions on hand at once, we could not ac
commodate the crowd." a popular land
lord said yesterday. "Thero were fully

and many of these had to be sent to lodg

not wish to go. The visitors themselves
found this state of affairs very unsatis
factory, as most of them come to Port
land to have a good time and mingle with
their friends, while attending the con
ventions of their party. The hotel lob

"Pndd'nhead Wilson" Finely Ren.
dered by Burr Mcintosh.
A more splendid performance than that
afforded at the Marquam last, night, by
Mrs. Edwin Mayo's original company,
of the familiar Twain play, "Pudd'nhead
Wilson" has never been seen by Port
landers. A good houso turned out to be Intro
duced to Burr Mcintosh. It Is pleasure
ablo to relate the acquaintance progressed
rapidly. Ho came as a stranger, claiming
but modest recognition of his 'merits.
Great Interest centered in him, and when
he presented the deliberate and humor
ously original Puddn'head, at last Indicat
ing his puzzling theory of thumb marks,
the Marquam audience raised hands and
gave him curtain calls to the echo.
Mr. Mcintosh qualifies. In the judgment
of some, for a better David Wilson than
hlo more celebrated predecessor In tbe
part. His physique, his physiognomy and
the fine sense of humor displayed by him
In delivering his lines aroused the highest
enthusiasm as the play proceeded.
jusi one point, nowever, in passing:
Some friend who has Mr. Mcintosh's con
fidence must tell him that Pudd'nhead
Wilson was a simple-minded man a great,
big, honest, overgrown boy with lota of
goodness of heart and not much of a
judge of "ornery" people. Besides, Dave
Wilson drawled hta words, and principally
In this drawl lay the success ot his prede
ccasors In the character the speech of a
dreamer, the languid manner of a man
who has nothing to do.
But' Mr. Mclntoah Is a vary fine actor.
He has wonderful facial expression. For
example, at the end of the third act, when
he thinks he has made a fatal mistake
In labeling the thumb marks, he won the
audience completely In a delicato scene
without speaking a word, the house break
ing into It with applause. In the court
scene, he rose to great dramatic height,
and arouecd much enthusiasm. Let Mr.
Mcintosh In the earlier scenes bo more
deliberate, take on a little more repose and
drawl his sentences our. He will then
reach, to the full, Mark Twain's quaint

It would be somewhat of a task to add
to the praises that have been sounded In
favor of the familiar players who havo
perpetuated tho humorsome Twain phi
losophy and prove! be. Sheriff Blake, by
William B, McKay, Is so complete a cre
ation In itself that It becomes no small
part of the play. It was a sure sign of
the high satisfaction, and content of tho
audience while they were bubbling with
the anticipated laughter, for the first
"Orr-rr-der In the co't." from McKay.
Frank Campeau, the dapper and accom
plished young aclor who has been Identi
fied with tbe Mayo company for a long
time, was seen again In a role that few
could equal. There Is Just a touch of
pathes and pity thrown In his villainy as
Tom Drlscoll which appeals for much ad
miration for his consistent, clean-cut and
thoroughly Intelligent character work.

"Have Von Seen Smith i" the Attrac

"Have Tou Seen Smith?" which will be
the matinee attraction at Cordray's this
afternoon. Is Just the kind of a play that
will take with a matinee audience bright,
funny, and brim full of good music and
up-to-date specialties. It has drawn big
houses all the week, and Its many amus
ing scenes and ridiculous situations have
kept the audiences In a continual laugh
from curtain to curtain. There has been
a large advance sale, and Indications are
that the house will bo crowded. The last
performance will be given tonight.

yesterday afternoon. Carlson was convict
ed of holding up a street car at Willamette
Heights and robbing C H. Knudson. the
conductor, and also Motorman C E. Hard
ing. He was also tried and found guilty
of the robbery of Mrs. C. T. Dlckerson.
Before sentence was pronounced, C J.
Schnabel. attorney for Carlson, made a
few remarks to the court in behalf of his
client, and then read a long .statement
which Carlson had prepared In writing. In
this Carlson began by saying he Is not
as black as he has been painted, having
rescued 13 persons from a wrecked steam
boat on Yaqulna Bay In 1S32. thus saving
their lives, and In 1S33 saved three per-
buus who were in a sman noat on la- I
qulna Bay Bar. The records of the United
States Court, he said, would prove these
facts. Mr. Schnabel vouched for the truth
of the statements. Carlson admitted hav
ing served seven years In the penitentiary,
three terms, and his paper next contained
the following dramatic recital of his ex
perience with the cold, heartless world.
Immediately following his hut release from
"When released at Salem I was sick,
without even a &-cent piece in my pocket,
and. to make matters worse, there was six

criminal, or thieving thought, I would cer
tainly have done something terrible under
these circumstances, penniless, homeless,
hungry and half clothed. I walked to Cor
vallls. a distance ot 45 miles, endeavoring
to obtain employment, but a request for
a Job would meet with the question,
Where did you come from?" On answering,
'Salem.' they would say, T don't need any
one.' After trudging along discouraged
and disheartened, I finally reached Cor
vallls. and was fortunate In finding a
friend who loaned me J3. Knowing that
I must save as much of the money as
possible, I started for Portland on foot,
and the sixth or seventh evening arrived
at a convent about 14 miles from Portland,
footsore and suffering with la grippe. As
It was Impossible for me to go on. I asked
for a night's shelter; the barn or out
house would have been acceptable, but
this was emphatically denied me. Sick
at heart I turned away, wondering It
there were still Christians In the land. To
gether with being turned out of prison with
hardly enough clothing, my confidence In
man, humane man, was slowly but surely
being shattered. After a terrible and bit
ter night. I arrived In Portland. After
staying a short time I left for a logging
camp at Rainier, and went to work. I left
to take a better Job further down the
river, Starkey's camp: from there I went
to the North Pacific mill, and next worked
'longshore until the time of my arrest.
This gives a legitimate account of my
whereabouts and mode of obtaining a live
lihood from the' time of my release from
Ex-Detective Maher, who was a witness
against Carlson on the question of alibi,
comes In for a "roast," and the state
ment otherwise contains a long review of
the evidence of some of the witnesses,
and an account of assistance rendered by
Carlson to Mrs. Berget and her sick child.
Tho communication Is remarkable for Us
length, being more exhaustive than any
thing of the kind submitted In court for a
long time past. If ever before.
Carlson, at the conclusion of the read
ing. In answer to a question, said he had
nothing further to say. In response to
Interrogations by the court, he stated that
he waB sentenced to three years In the J
penitentiary In tha Astoria court, three
years by Judge Stephens, and one year In
Lincoln County, and Is now 36 years old.
Before passing sentence. Judge George
conferred briefly with District Attorney
Sewall and Mr. Glltner.
Judge George then- said: -
"It appears that you are a man of a
good deal of force, capable of earning a
good livelihood, nnd Intelligent. It ap
pears also that you are a very dangerous
man to the public, and that you are un
able to control your tendency for evil.
From your statement It appears that you
have performed some acts of bravery and
ot kindness, and you might be a man of
usefulness to yourself and the community
under proper circumstances. It further
appears that you have been three time
In the penitentiary, and have not allowed
yourself to raise above It. and to reform
yourself and lead an honorablo life. The
penalty Is from 5 to 21 years, and this
places It In the power of the court to Im
pose sentences which would consume tho
balance of your natural life. If not made
Judge George concluded by Imposing a
sentence of 14 years In each case, the sen
tence to run concurrently.

The argument In the case of Brown
et al. vs. Jacobs et al.. in the United
States Court, on an order to show cause
why a receiver should not be appointed,
was concluded at noon yesterday, and the
matter taken under advisement by Judge
Bellinger. The parties are the owners of
stock of the Oregon City Woolen Mills.
Complainants wish to have a receiver ap
pointed for the property of the corpora
tion. They allege that It was agreed that
defendants should have the management
of the woolen mills and defendants-were to
have tho handling of the output. Of late,
they allege that this business to a great
extent has been taken out of their barns,
and they have been deprived of the com
missions on the sale of the goods. De
fendants have offered to give a certain
sum for the complainants' Interests In the
property or to sell thefr Interests for a
much larger sum, and complainants would
like the court to make an order requiring
both sides to name a definlto sum which
they will give or will sell their Interests
It was shown that the profits of the cor
poration have exceeded the cost of the
property about 50 per cent. Defendants ex
hibit no desire to make a "give or take"
offer for the property, and do not con
sider that there is any necessity for a
receiver for a concern which Is paying
