cither of the .opposing political .parties.
'Several names have been suggested.

It is considered very important.
Both sides announce the purpose of enter

Among the Republicans It can hardly be
said that any particular person is put
forth. Chairman ilackay, .of the central
committee, stated yesterday that many
names were being considered. "There
should be no haste in -choosing."' said
Mr. 'Mackay. "We have plenty of time
and should and will act carefully. At the
present time the committee is inviting
suggestions and discussion. We Intend
to ciect our man, and naturally want "to
put forward the best candidate available.
No meeting has been held since the
vacancy occurred. Probably each mem
ber of the committee has his choice of
candidates, but there has been no expres
sion of who it shall be. After we have
canvassed the field thoroughly we will
be in better position to act judiciously.
Deliberate action is the more necessary
In this case, as it Is hardly expedient to
hold a primary election and convention.
That would Involve much expense and
trouble. If the members of the party

SHBRMAK COUNTY'S HARVEST
One-Sixth of Ore'gon's Wheat Yield
Is Her Quota,
Sherman County will produce more than
a sixth of Oregon's wheat crop this year,
according to L Starms, a Moro wheat
raiser, who has Just finished threshing.
Mr. Starms was. In Portland yesterday on
.his way tov the State Fair, arid'was quite
elated over the result of" his own" farm
on Hay Creek, which yielded 28 bushels
to the acre. The grain is of unusual
plumpness, too, on account ,of the favor
able Spring, and even should wheatbuy
ets offer no more than at present, Sher
man County farmers will make xnonqy
this year, he thinks.
"Although harvest hands are very
scarce in Sherman County," Mr. Starms.
said, "we managed somehow to save the
crop in good shape. The combined -harvesters
have about .'taken' my part of the
county, and as only five men are needf d
to cut, thresh and sack 45 acres' a -day,
the scarcity of men was not 'so badiy
felt If we were dependent on headers
and threshing machines as of old, we
would have been delayed very much. A
combined harvester, worked by 32 horses,
cuts a swath 20 feet wide and drops the
sacks of wheat all over the field, to be
gathered by a farm wagpn. I.kept one
two-horse team and wagon busy gather
ing up these wheat sacks,, and as high
as 600 per day were taken" to the granary.
The harvesters, though apparently wldo
and cumbersome,, can be turned In .as
small a space as a header can, and we
usually cut two swaths around the edge'
of every field with the .header before .
turning" the harvester in. This first cqt-
ting is used for hay. v

The harvest Just closing has been a
pleasant one, so far as weather is con

of high winds, which Is an un
usual circumstance. "It maybe that the

NEILL'S BIO TRIUMPH.
He Plays the Role "Which Made Rich
ard Mansfield Famous. .
' James Nelll' achieved a notable triumph
at the Marquam-last-i night. Thus"' far in
his engagement 'this week, the repertoire
gave opportunity only to maintain the
very high place he made for himself last
season in the estimation of Portland's
theater-goers. Until he played Baron
Chevrial in "A Parisian .Romance," he
did not reveal his most artistic and most
effective work. He has been compared
with Sol Smith Russell, "at Goodwin and
E. H. Sothern, comedians of more than
National reputation, and, while he is in
one sense an Imitator, he always en
dows every -role with an Individuality
which raises him above the originals.
"Whatever he plays, he puts forth his own
strong personality; therefore, the criti
cal theater-goers take and admire Nelll
for himself, not for the prototypes.
But last night he passed a crucial test
He played a role made famous by the
best living character actor, Richard Mans
field! Those who have the best sort of an
opinion of Nelll were Inclined to doubt
whether he, would be equal to Baron
Chevrial, and. . feared that possibly he
was too ambitious. His first act dispelled
doubt at once, the second evoked distinct
admiration, .the third emphasised It, and
In the banquet and death scene, Nelll
met the tragic requirements magnificent
ly. His. versatility Js almost marvelous.
It will- be In no way surprising -to hear
of him adding "Hamlet" to his repertoire,
and' no one will now believe that he can
not approach, closely to the masters If he

was perfectly satisfactory. Mr. Burton

roles were handled with fidelity and care.
One good' thing in the Nelll repertoire
will be repeated this afternoon at the
matinee. It will be "A Bachelor's Ro
mance," and the opportunity will be
afforded to see Mr. Nelll In bis happiest
vein. .Tonight, for farewell,' "Nlobe" -
, "A Hindoo Hoodoo." r
Few farce-comedies achieve success as
soon as has "A "Hindoo Hoodoo," which
comes to Cordray's Sunday night, and
which from the time of lts. initial pro
duction in New YorlcThas packed houses
wherever It has been seen. The "West
ern tour. has been unusually successful,
and pj-css and. public all along .the .line
have united to praise the company and
the plajvand to urge the local managers
to book It again next season. The play
hinges on the magic of a Hmdoo magi
cian, who projects two souls, one of a
business man "and the otEer of a doctor,
Into space. "When he suinmons them to
return only.uhe obeys, and In bis con
fusion he steers .It into the body of the
business man,. The body wakes up looks
at his watch, and remembers that he has
a consultation with another physician in
an hour. From that time the fun be
gins, and does not stop till the fall of
the Anal curtain.
Three leading members of the company
are well known In Portland. Anna Boyd
created, the character ofthe widow, In "A
Trip ..to Chinatown," andhas made suc
cesses of many, of the parts In Hoyt's
farces. The light comedy Is in the hands
of George Larson, who was the first com

Portland to play in stock. " He has made
an enviable reputation of late years, and
now ranks as one -of the best actors In
his line on the -stage." Mattie Lockette,

HE CAN'T STAND BRYAN
COLONEL CROOKS, A PROMINBKT
DEMOCRAT, IS FOR M'KINLEY.
Declares Htmnelf in Minnesota,
Where He Has Had an Active Po
litical Career His Reasons.
Colonel Crooks,. chief elrk in the office
of President Mohler, of 'the O. R. & N., a
man well along- In years and of high
standing, Is hack in Minnesota on his an
nual visit The St. Paul Pioneer Press of
September 12 printed the following an
nouncement and interview with him,
which is particularly significant in the
state where he is so well known, and
which was the scene of his political ac
tivities: "Colonel "William Crooks, who com
manded the Sixth Minnesota Volunteers
during the entire time of that regiment's
service in the Civil "War, and for 40 years
an enthusiastic and prominent Democrat,
has declared his Intention to support Pres
ident McKlnley and the sound-money and
expansion planks. Colonel Crooks de
nounces Bryan and his followers as ad
venturers that have- sacrificed party prin
ciples for the sake of personal aggrandize
ment and spoils, and, says the imperialism
slogan is merely, a cloak to veil an atti
tude on National finance which, once its
principles were set at work, would Inevi
tably result In Nationadlshonor.
,, "Though not actively identified with
p-olltics for a number of year, Colonel
Crooks has always been a party adviser
and formerly a'leader. He was a member
of the lower house of the state Legisla
ture In 1875 and 1877, and a member of
the Senate In 18S1. He believes. Bryan's
principles are not those of true Democ
racy, and that they will, be forever con
signed to the oblivion of charlatanism by
the voters of 1900." The Colonel said last

the organization of that great party Is in the
hands of Mr. Bryan and his, followers, but In

hands oCthose that place devotion to the Con

PURE FOOD AND PRICES. , "
Gain In .Dairy Trade Partly Due to
Enforcement of Law.
sillier' Freeman, publisher of Ranch and
Range, of Seattle, was in Portland yes
terday after having-visited the State Fair
at Salem." He spoke highly of this year's
Fair, particularly commending the live
stock exhibit, which, he said, waa the
fines.t ever made on the Pacific Coast.
In talking with an Oregonian reporter,
Mr. Freeman spoke" - of -the gratifying
progress that had been made in protect
ing producers land consumers from adul
terated foods. The pure-food laws of Ore
gon and ."Washington are similar, and in
both states the official, Intrusted with the
duty o'f 'enforcing them isactive and he
accomplishes creditable results.
"It so happens that in Washington most
of the stir Is about Impure groceries," said
Mr Freemari.' "In Oregon more attention
Is directed to dairy and fruit products.
Mr: Bailey has done valuable service in
ridding 'the market o'f butter substitutes,
fraudulent 'jellies, etc., in the guise of the
genuine. The law, of course, does not say
what the p.eople shall or shall not eat, but
It says that whatsoever is sold the peo
ple shall be sold under its true name. If
people prefer to use butterine or oleomar
garine, 'they are at pqrfect liberty to do
so, but they should buy It unfaer its true
name", not 'under the name- of Gutter. So
with, jellies. If people prefer colored glu
cose, they should be permitted to have it,
but the "rspurious article'1 should not be"
forced upon them for the genuine. All
the law can do is to p'ut-the proper label
on these articles, so that the people may
buy triem understanding. The only ob
ject manufacturers or dealers can have
In putting out adulterated goods Is to reap
an unjust 'profit by selling inferior and
perhaps harmful articles In, the guise of
honest wares. This is- a fraud 'that hurts
both tho producers and 'the corisume'rs o'f
the state.-. . . - ; '
iThe 'excellent price which Oregdh
dairymen have been getting - for Cheir
product this year is partly due tp -activity
in enforcing .the pure-food law. By
ruling out the spurious articles that have
hitherto .served' to keep the market over
supplied, tho honest products are given a
chance. The people are prosperous, and
don't want food Imitations; they are able
to payrfor the genuine, and that Is what
they.ibuy, creating an active demand that
is renecteu in the better -prices tne pro
ducers receive. -Thls works a hardship on
nobody. If the price for the genuine ar
ticle i too high to suit anybody, he may
buy the,, imitation as he did before, but
now he buys it for what it is, not for what
it may; be called.
"One man cannot do all the work neces
sary for the strict enforcement of pure,
food laws tTho Oregon' Commissioner
ought tavhave two gobd assistants to help

TIMBER BUSINESS LIVELY
EASTERN - BIEYERS CONTlNUi! TO
INVEST IN OREGON- LANDS. '
The Coming? Winter Promises to Be
a Prosperous Season, for t&e
The ensuing Winter promises to be an
active one in the transfer of Oregon
and "Washington timber lands. The num
ber of Eastern buyers now In Portland
is larsrer than at any previous time, and
still more are expected as the season
advances. Several timber men have
opened offices "in downtown buildings so
ad to make it convenient to meet Jthose
"who haveTlands 'fbrsalo, and theso offices
will also'be headquarters for the various
cruisers engaged 'in examining' the titles,
values and locations of the- quarter sec
tions whose owners think they have held
them long enough.
Timber lands have advanced In price
over 100 per cent within the past few
years, under the stimulus of Eastern de
mand, but this increase by no means
scares buyers .. away.' jQuarter sections
that a few years ago could be bought
for Jo , an acre .have advanced to J10,
while the acres for which $10 were de
manded have, in some instances, risen to
$25. Purchasers range all the way from
$600 to $4500 per quarter section, accord
ing' to' the amount of timber the orulser
reports, together with its accessibility
from the various navigable streams.
Mrs. McKinnon, of Castle Rock, "Wash.,
recently sold her 160 acres for $4500, to
a Michigan buyer. This is the best sale
so far reported, being over $28 an acre. ,1
There are timber men from Michigan,
Minnesota, "Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and
even Louisiana, who "will make their
headquarters in Portland this year, with
a view to adding" to their store of Oregon
and "Washington fir, cedar, spruce and
larch, and by thiB time next year the
original owners 4of quarter sections of for
est will be much reduced in number.
The money paid to settlers by these tim
ber buyers 'already reaches Into the hun
dreds of thousands, ,and forms quite a
fictor'in th'e 'increased per capita circu
lation of" the state, but the money about
to be expended will form a much larger
sum, according to timber, men well in
formed on the outlook.
"Many have grown rich in the lumber
ing Industry of the Bast within the past
40 years," one of these said yesterday,
"and what else can they do with their
surplus cash but Invest it again in what
has turned out bo well. The banks of
the East are glutted with deposits and
th'ey ' will jjay nothing for the use of
money, so we mlghtvas well get hold of
Pacific Coast timber lands while they
can be obtained at. a reasonable price.
"The transferror the timber lands of
Oregon and Washington does not mean
that these tracts shall He idle for an in
definite period." he continued, "and it
Is only a question of a very short time
when these purchasing- will begin to reap
the benefit of "their Investments. New
sawmills will be erected, new logging
camps started, and the opening of these
camp3 will be accompanied by the con-
struction of branch lines of standard
gauge railroads into the now remote
timber belts. These new linos will de
veldo the dairy and farming- interests,
and people" the now remote valleys
and. canyons with a thriving population,
which .will be all tributary to Portland."
The .purchase of timber land has here
tofore s been "attended with considerable
expense and difficulty, as there has been

siring .to Invest has been obliged to put
Its own cruisers In the field, and In many
cases these cruisers have reported ad
versely, as the lands did not come up to
tho agent's description. The expense of
cruising was therefore borne by the pro
posed purchaser, but as no headquarters

the next Investor would be put to the

We have never known a woman to at

reminiscences. With an old maid, the
result Is more or less negative. The

the aroma of her observations. With
the mother-in-law and wife, the case dif

their thirst for authority. Are we to

A IMsastar Certain to Come.
POKTLAKD, Sept. 18. To tha Editor.)
Apropos of the many "predictions" that
Galveston would be submerged, I wish to
say that any person who had visited Gal
veston and was" not blinded by business
interests, or whose Judgment was not be
witched by the climate and magnificent
beach, 23 miles in length, knew that It
was only a question of time when Gal
veston would be washed away The high-
est poin.t of the island offered no place of
saiexy in sucn a storm as may tane piace
any year Jn the coast of Texas.
Galveston has suffered severely before.
Twenty-five years ago a large portion of
the city and Island was submerged, with
much los3 of life. Children were held
aloft over the heads of parents, whllo the
latter waded through the raging waters
to a possible place of safety. During
thl3 storm the whole of the coast of
Texas suffered. Indlanpla was washed
into the sea. The latter place was re
built, and some years later was again
) washed into the sea. The submerged
portion of Galve3ton waa rebuilt, only
to be washed away, ground and all, by
the recent storm. There is absolutely
no protection from such a disaster, if the
storm happens to strike that point, and
heavy storms are common on the coast
of Texas. B.
