ordinating action of all the different of
ficers in carrying out their orders.
It is proposed that the general staff con
sist of one Chief of Staff of the Army

cords .IVith State Platforms.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Dec. 2. "A conservative docu
ment" Is tho general comment upon the
President's message in - Washington.
While not as broad as the message
looked for at the opening of a Congress,
it is felt by Republicans generally that
the President has said all that the oc
casion demands. More than any other
feature, his referring to the trusts is
approved by his party followers and hl3
appeal for a reciprocity treaty with
Cuba meets -with general commendation.
even among some who stood out so
stanchly against the reciprocity "blllj in
the last session. This feature, he treats
in hl3 best manner. As to the canal, It
is probable something more definite will
be heard from the President later In the
Senator Mitchell listened throughout
the reading of the message and was
much pleased with the President's .re
commendations. He regards it ' as an
able and comprehensive document, in line
with Republican policies.
Senator Foster said of the message;.
"It is a remarkable document, clear but
conservative. It meets my views exact
ly. I am particularly pleased with what
the President has to say on the trust
and tariff questions and believe that, if
his policy is followed out, the right thing
will be done."
"The President's message Is all right,"
said Representative Jones. "I am In
hearty sympathy with his Ideas on the
trust question and It will be found that
his trust doctrine is exactly In line with
the platform of the Washlngon Republi
cans In the late campaign. I also ap
prove of what is said on the tariff ques
tion. The message Is an able paper and,
while not as broad as that of last year,
is all that is demanded."
Representative Moody .said: "I regard It
as an excellent state document. The Pres
ident's reference to the trust, tariff, labor
and currency Issues appeal to me as fair
and conservative. His special mention of
the nerd of forest protection in connection
with the -National Irrigation act, passed
last session, together with his observations
concerning the perversion of the public
lands under the timber and stone act and
the commutation clause of the homestead
law, to the detriment of tho settlers or
homo builders, will be regarded by the
people of Oregon as most timely. His in
timate acquaintance with the conditions
in the, West is again apparent In his sug
gestions concerning lands most valuable
for pasturage. The people of the West
will also appreciate his foresight In urg
ing speedy and wise legislation for

TOXGUE PLEDGED TO BURTON.
Bnt Ohio Candidate for Speaker Does
Xot Declr.rc Himself.
; OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Dec. 2. Representative Tongue Is
supporting Representative Burton, of
Ohio, for the Speakership as a member
of the rivers and harbor committee. He
feels that It Is his duty to stand by
.Dunun as long aa nc remains m me race,
but if Burton should retire he would
then give hi3 vote to Cannon.
Representative-elect Williamson has
already pledged himself to Cannon.
In this, connection it Is interesting to
observe Burton's attitude. His friends In
tho Ohio delegation are maklnff efforts
to induce him to declare himself flatly
as a candidate or cut of the race. He
evades the question, however, leaving his
colleagues In the dark, much to their
embarrassment. Although Cannon now
,has more than enough votes to elect
him, Burton, Dalzell and Littlefleld have
not withdrawn their names. Burton tells
his friends that the recent pledges given
Cannon merely constitute a preliminary
flurry and will have ho binding effect
next-December, HIj d.!re 3ocnvs-to be
father to hte judgment.
ALASKA'S CRY FOR RELIEF.
Delegation Asks for Paslmprc of Do
nation Land Act.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Dec. 2. Former Collector of Cus
toms J. W. Xvey showed up in Washing
ton today at the head of a delegation
that has come to ask Congress to adopt
at the present " session a donation law
as a means of Inducing settlement In
Alaska. They Insist that, while the pub
lic lands should be surveyed, surveys
would consume several years, whereas
under a donation act such a3 was In
force in Oregon and Washington In tho
early days, settlers could at once se
cure title to lands. They point out that
till- they have some assurance that title
can be had to' these- lands, settlers will
not go Into Alaska In considerable num
bers. Notwithstanding the evident fair
ness of a law such as they propose, Jt
is practically impossible to gqt such leg
islation through at a short session.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2. Colonel Henry
Hasbrouck, Artillery Corps, commanding
the post at Fort Adams, R. iV, has been
appointed a Brigadier-General. 'He will
be retired Immediately.

there Is a. quick- Cessation on the part of.
two .newspapers here of' their efforts to
bring about a grand jury, investigation of
the scandals growing out of the gambling
situation the jury.wiil be called within tho
next week or 10 days. In view of the facts
that have already been brought out, there
r.'lU be a series of rcvalalfons tht will
shake Seattle to the core. By implication
charges were made in the Times last night
to the effect that one of the Superior
Court Judges was guilty of "grafting,"
and that a well-known lawyer was a par
ticipant in the game. The story is a sen
sational one in every respect save that
neither the name of tho" Judge nor of thu
lawyer who are alleged, to be guilty aro
Ordinarily th.e public, might not seriously
notice a charge of this kind, but the fact
iJS that people generally know what Judge
and what lawyer are meant, and; their
names, arc being bandied about town. In a
scandalous way. The story as told in the
Times is to. the effect that a large sum,
said to be $3500. was raised among 'the
bos3 gamblers to be paid to the Judge
In order to force the closing of the games
In the new Tenderloin. The money, It Is
alleged, was, delivered to a well-known at
torney, who In turn was to pay it over to
the Judge. Another charge Is that the
same Judge demanded $100 monthly from
certain vicious Interests," part of which
was paid overjn a well-known First-avenue
The attacks In the Times on the Supe
rior Court are the sensational develop
ments of the moment. They reflect se
verely on the tribunal, even though no
names are mentioned. The Judge who by
Implication la Involved In thl3 latest phase
of the municipal ecandal refuses to dis
cuss the matter, nor does the lawyer reply
to the charges. It is believed, however,
that both will Indulge In reprisals on the
editor of the Times, and that neither can
afford to rest under the imputation car
ried by the article In the paper named. In
fact, It Is understood that lawyer and
Judge are working: on the case together
and are preparing to make vigorous re
joinder to the charges In the Times.
This Is but one phase of the municipal
scandal which Is dally growing In magni
tude. It Is now reported among persons
who claim to be In the secrets of the pow
ers that control municipal politics that
Chief Sullivan is to be forced from his po
sition. It Is no secret that between Mayor
Humes and Chief Sullivan there Is a cool
ness which at any time may develop Into
active hostility. Mayor Humes and tho
Chief never were political friends or as
sociates. Chief Sullivan was applnted to
his position on the killing of the late Chief
Will, Meredith by the, Consldlne brothers.
Meredith was only a detective when ap
pointed, and was a much younger man on
the force than Sullivan, who had at that
time served several years as Police Cap
tain.' Meredith's promotion over Sulllvan'a
head did not please the latter particularly,
but ll4 was what he expected.
While the Mayor and the Chief have ap
parently worked In harmony 3lnce Sulll
vannook charge, there has never been any
real cordiality. Sullivan is haled by the
boss gamblers because he Is Independent
and Incorruptible. While favoring the
gambler trust, Sullivan has always acted
under the direction of Mayor Humes, who
owes his position to the use of the money
of the gamblers In the last municipal cam
paign. But while tender In his treatment
of the boss gamblers, the Chief has rec
ognized the smaller fry. Including the
blackjack operators and the new Tender
loin houses. In this the Chief has incurred
the mortal enmity of the boss gamblers.
During Thanksgiving week Mayor
Humes and Detective Charles Phl!lpp3
were off together on a hunting trip. Phil
lpps last Spring sought to have the Coun
cil make him Chief of . Detectives. Chief
Sullivan opposed the measure, turning
Phlllpps down hard. It was said that if
Phlllpp3 secured the position he would
deal with the gamblers and slot-machine
men under the Mayor's supervision, thus
making the Chief comparatively a nonen
tity In the department over which he pre
sides. Out of this grew a rupture between the
Chief and. Philipps which finally led the
Chief to lay the detective oft for a month
for infraction of the rules.
Phlllpps, it Is well known, aspires to Sul
livan's position. He Is a pet of the
Mayor's, and if a change Is made he will
get the plum. -Chief Sullivan has good
fighting grit, however, and he will not ba
forced out without compelling the Mayor
to show his hand. The Mayor understands
this, -and, always careful to preserve his
own political -wellbelng Intact., hesitates
before taking a decl?ive r.tep In the .mat
ter. That Sullivan has fortified himself by
closing the gambling-houses and the
money-paylns slot machines Is an un
doubted fact. He has seriously embar
rassed Humes if the latter had planned
