Mutterlngs and mumblings are heard in
Ihe Republican county central committee.
Members of that body sniff at ei'ery
breeze to find out what part they -will
play In the assumption of their powers
by an executive or managing commit
tee. The gentlemen are thinking a whole
!ot these good old Summer days and the
color of their thoughts rei-eals that a
number of worthies don't take kindly to
the scheme of reorganization.
The programme Is to centralize the
powers of the county central committee
In a committee of seven or 11 members.
The smaller committee Is to be com
posed of Influential citizens, men who
have a name In the community for integ
rity f.nd political sagacity. The appoint
ment of the smaller committee is au
thorized by law. but a question more
vital to the success of the scheme Is
whether the reorganization will be au
thorized by the central committee. Sev
eral of the 70 councilors are already vo
vlferating against the new arrangements.
Dthers are "klcklrfg" and still others are
quietly thinking of such as: "But what's
there In It for us?"
The scheme has the putative stamp of
Senator Mitchell upon it. Its ostensible
purpose is to dispense with "one-man
power," which the advisors of the Sena
tor say has of late years convulsed the
politics xjf this county. For "one-man
power" would be substituted "11-man
power." Whereat the fftundatlons of the
organization would be strengthened, the
superstructure would be widened and
heightened and such would be the polit
ical fortress of the dominant faction in
the fight next Spring.
The Inevitable "Bnt."
All this sounds well, looks well and
tastes well for philosophic purposes, but
the visual demonstration Is shadowod in
many minds by Incredulity, which will
ie dispelled only by the actual perform
ance. Down deep, the scheme has for its pur
pose the placing of power where Sena
tor Mitchell and his friends can use It.
The power Is not now lodgedv where the
Senator Is absolutely sure of its falth
lul exercise. As the organization now
stands, he has. to trust to the good faith
of its leaders. As It would stand if he
could effect reorganization, he would have
his own thumb on It Instead of the other
fellow's. The Senator has been long
enough In power to know that, while
the promise of loyalty Is good, the pos
session of authority Is better.
Furthermore, the leaders in the reor
ganization movement say that Senator
Mitchell will gain by retiring Matthews
and Carey from the front of the line.
They believe that certain elements, to
whom these two men are distasteful,
Cftuld be Induced to render faithful serv
ice under a changed leadership.
But skeptics cry aloud in the streets
that tho reorganization will be only a
change of dress for the present regime
and that the soul, the body and the mem
bers will be Just the same under the new
cloak as under the old. They aver that
the retireerant of Matthews and Carey
will be apparent, not actual. They In
sist that soon or late the public will
learn the deception. "And the result will
be disastrous for the organization," said
one of them yesterday. "The reaction
will be costly. Starting away from
Matthews and following the circle back to
him Is bad politics. Better stay with him
or take a straight shoot from him."
MnttlicwH untl Carey In Control.
The Matthews-Carey influence in tho
committee fs believed to be Impregnable.
Out of the "0 members. 56 are said to be
indissolubly allied with Mr. Matthews'
friends. This is not strange, when one
remembers that Mr. Matthews named the
committee in the convention. Though he
may be out of active politics, his spirit
abides with the 56 and his name is writ
ten upon the tablet of their hearts.
A suspicion stalks abroad that Senator
Mitchell, In his desire to get full control
of the organization, hopes to persuada
the county committee to elect an execu.
tlve committee of his own choosing. This
suspicion haunts tho central committee.
Mind you. the Senator would not have the
effrontery to ask the central committee
to elect whom he had named. The Sena
tor would stay In "500" and his close
friends, who wish to see him re-elected
In 190 and who desire to see the five
State Senators nominated next Spring in
his Interest, would do the outside work.
AH this makes Jealous certain ones of
the 70. If there Is going to be any politics,
they say they want to be In the exercise;
Instead of letting out the enjoyment by
proxy. Senator Mitchell Is reported to
have gained the assent of C. H. Carey,
chairman of the county committee, and
also of Mr. Matthews.
But the promise may not mean all that
the Senator wishes. To be sure, tho big
men of the 70 may be willing to turn over
the scepter, but might they not insist
that it be wielded by their ow.n executive
committee? Might they not say "If 70 of
us are too many for the Senator, let him
take 11 of us?" or "If we are to retain the
political power In this county, would we
not better keep hold of it?" or "If the
Senntor does not wish to take the power
away from us. why should he object to
leaving It in our hands?"
Slay Be Blood on the Moon.
These doubts and fears have made a
commotion In the central committee.
"There'll be blood on the mo6n." de
claimed one of the elect yesterday, "when
ever Senator Mitchell or anybody tries
to take the management away from the
"It's all moonlight on the lake," de
clared another gentleman of quality, re
sorting to a political metaphor of Jona
than Bourne. "It's all moonlight on the
lake to talk about the central committee's
willingness to transfer the authority
against Its determination to keep the reins
"Can you make an anti-Matthews execu
tive committee." asked a reprobate Simon
politician, "out of a pro-Matthews cen
tral committee? Can tho leopard change
Carey Hns Ambitions.
A story is persistently going around
town that Judge Carey will not let live
State Senators be put up who would ob
ject to prefixing "United States Senator"
to his name at the Legislative session of
1M7. The Judge last year wanted to bo
nominated for Governor, but his aspira
tions are said to have moved up a notch
since then. He haa more "swing" In the
central committee than he would have In
tho proposed executive committee, for the
lesser body would be chosen in Senator
Mitchell's Interest: hence wise gossips
presume that the Judge does not lend
his whole soul to the promotion of Sena
tor Mitchell's Interest. In this Idea they
are borne out by the Judge's provident
foresight la storing up influence for him
self a. year back.
What Does Baker "Want r

county committee have given free vent
to the suspicion that the proposed execu- j
tlve committee Is to be set up In Baker's
Interest. What Baker wants for himself
is a question of Interest among the poll
ticians. For some time a report has been
abroad that he desires to get Into the
Government office of printing and engrav
ing, but this story hast become discredited
by the gossips.
The report now Is that he Is laying plans
to be elected State Printer again. It is
suspected that he will endeavor to work
up a strong country sentiment for him
self, and to get as much support In Mult
nomah as he can. To this end his leader
ship in Multnomah or the domination of
the proposed executive committee In his
interest would stand him In good stead.
Since he was elected state chairman the
rural press has been saying things about
him. some good and some otherwise.
Those who threw bouquets got a letter of
thanks from Mr. Baker, signed by his
very own self. In the envelopes fre
quently went a greenback as a present
to the editor. If Mr. Baker can go Into
the convention with the country lined up
behind him. hi? own county might have
the more reason to side In.
Tlie Faithful Feel Hurt.
Already n "holler" haa been heard from
the neighborhood of the- men who set
Senator Mitchell upon his feet this last
time. These men don't think they are
"Four years ago." said one of them yes
terday, "we snatched this county away
from the Slmonltes. We elected Mr.
Mitchell Senator. Now he turns about
and wishes to run politics over our heads.
Instead of accepting our counsel he ac
cepts that of others and wishes to force
it on us. In our ranks were J. E. Hunt.
Andrew C Smith. F. P. Mays and others.
We haven't got any recognition for what
we did and we see men who haven't done

If there was much affinity between
Baker and Matthews, probably they
would call upon each other, for the story
goes that they seldom or never come In
contact. The same tale is in circulation
about Carey and Matthews, but it Isn't
true. F. A. Bancroft, Postmaster, repre
sents himself as an exponent of the new
movement, but whether he Is playing to
the galleries Is a puzzle. He frequently
calls on Senator Mitchell, but "Matthews
goes to the Senator's headquarters only
seldom. Mr. Bancroft ostensibly believes
in a new shifting of power, but perhaps
not offensively to Mr. Matthews, for that
Great Issues at Stake.
The whole state hangs on the outcome
of next Spring's "cqntest In Multnomah
County. Senator Mitchell's re-election
rests on the result of that fight. Five,
hold-over State Senators are to be elect
ed in thU? county and ten outside of
Multnomah, and they will vote for United
States Senator In 1907. Mr. Mitchell Is
fully alive to the political situation, and
he knows the weakness and strength of
his organization. That's why he wants
to "broaden" his organization.
But the fact is that his workers are as
yet doing but little. The centralization of
power In the smaller committee occupies
the whole attention of his friends, and
that is making slow progress. His, en
emies are more active. The Simon people
are doing more to restore themselves than
Is commonly known. On every side they
boast that they are going to "clear things
The leadership of the County Central
Committee was once offered to Mr. Baker
"jv Senator Mitchell, but whether that
offer holds good Is a question of uncer
tainty, Mr. Baker has denied that the
offer ever was made, and has averred that
he has no ambition to lead the politics
of this counts. Senator Mitchell has said
that Judge Carey will resign the chair
manship of the county committee 24 hours
after requested to do so, but even if
the Judge should resign, and Mr. Baker
or anybody else should go in. how could
the Senator gain anything thereby, when
the committee could not be divorced from
Carey and Matthews?
"If Senator Mitchell could depend on 40
members of the county committee to do
his bidding," said an observer, "he could
rely on the committee. But he can't mus
ter that many. Matthews and Carey have
a majority, and even if tbr retire from
the nominal leadership, their actual con
Senator Mitchell has said: "I don't care
about the committee; what I want is
votes," referring to the primaries.
However, the central committee has the
naming of delegates on the primary tick
et. Tne Senator, even If he had the votes
at the primaries, might not be able to
cast them for the men he desired unless
the county committee would stand In.
And if Judge Carey has Senatorial ambi
tion, will the committee stand it?
Executive Committee Censed to. Exist
The executive committee of the last
campaign ceased to exist after the elec
tion. This was not required by law, but
by th terms according to which the sub
committee was chosen by the central com
mittee. The new managing committee
will te empowered by law to nominate for
primary elections, but the central com
mitter can assume this power It It desires.
This Is Just what the central committee
would do If the executive committee were
not of Its liking and the latter would
thereupon be nothing "but a name.
The last managing committee was com
posed of W. F. Matthews, F. A. Bancroft,
A. A. Courtcney, Herbert C- Smith, C. A.
Malarkey. Samuel B. Schwab. P. L. Willis.
George H. Ho weft. Dr. E. G. Clarke.
George H. Lamberson. Henry "W. Godcnrd,
W. L. Llghtner, Daniel S. Dunbar, Em
mett H. Kelly and F. A. BIdwell. This
committee was chosen by a special com
mittee of five members of the central
committee. The five were named by Judge
Carey, and were as follows: W. F. Mat
thews. T. C. Powell. Henry Chapman, G.
G. Willis and James W. Mathena.
"We deem it to be to the best interest
of all concerned," sala the committee of
five in recommending the election of the
foregoing executive committee, "to select
men of well-known ability. Integrity and
high standing In the community and In
the party, as well as men of large pollt
vical experience and sagacity. "We recom
mend that the duties of the managing
committee end with the present campaign
and that the preparation for the campaign
two years hence and the selection of
candidates for delegates all be left to the
general county and city central commit
tee of 70."

Portland Elks have decided to hold their

The decision to go to Olympla was
reached after a sharp fight between the
Astoria '& Columbia Rives Railroad and

Both roads quoted a rate of $2.50 for the
round trip, and the lodge added 50 cents
to this fare to pay incidental expenses.

It Is not quite fair to accredit alL the
