Plan of the Republicans of
WILL OPPOSE ADMINISTRATION
Lord Is Active Candidate tor Gov
ernor, but Will Be Content "With.
McBride's Defeat How 'For
mer Combine Was Split.
SEATTLE, Sept. 6. (Special) A hard
and fast combination of the southwestern
Washington counties Is the cherished am
bition of the Republican politicians of
that section of the state. And there Is a
strong likelihood that they -will be able
to come Into the next state convention. In
It will be a give-and-tako arrangement
that brings the Southwest together, and
the chances of making such a deal aro
brighter than they have been at any time
since 1900, when the "Southwest" combina
tion went to pieces.
Politicians figure Cowlitz and Clarke
counties the most dangerous to the com
bination scheme. They believe they can
win in Pacific, Lewis, and "Wahkiakum,
where trouble would have been met last
year had a combination been effected.
Thurston and Chehalis, where two factions
are stirring up trouble, are believed to be
favorable to tho nlaiu
Clarke County is really the district
where the most serious trouble will be
met, but. if the rest of the Southwest
goes right, it Is insisted there will not be
much trouble with Clarke. If one faction
wins out, the restoration of the "South
west combine" to Its former position of
power would follow as a matter of course.
If the other faction is on top, it resolves
itself into a simple question of the proper
distribution of favors. Clarke could not
get much from a state convention if It
opposed the rest of the Southwest, and
there are several ambitious politicians in
Cowlitz County is "getting together."
The political differences of the two fac
tions have been partially settled and a
combination between rival leaders Is being
formed that Is believed to be sufficient to
land that county with the others in a
solid formation. Overtures made during
the past week show a disposition of Cow
litz County politicians to get into line
with the rest of the neighboring counties.
There are sore spots in "Wahkiakum and
Lewis County leaders that can be healed
best by aligning the two counties with
tho remainder of the Southwest and de
manding favors for that portion of the
state. Pacific. It is figured, must be taken
away from the old leaders.
HoW the Combine Split.
The Southwest went to pieces during the
campaign of 1900 when J. M. Frink was
named for Governor, and the Southwest
named State Treasurer C. W. Maynard
from Lewis, Attorney-General "W. B. Strat
ton from Pacific, and State Superintend
ent of Public Instruction R. B. Bryan
from Chehalis. In order to break into the
Southwest, which was lined up with the
Scoby forces, overtures were made to Pa
cific, and the first break occurred there,
when C. C. Dalton took his delegation out
of the combine and landed "W. B. Stratton.
Lewis and Chehalis took advantage of the
importunity to declare they would not
stay unless the other counties did, and
finally Chehalis forced Lewis to take the
3rst plunge. The Southwest combine that
had done service for years was broken
and the three counties leading the .revolt
aecured th plums they demanded. ,
Though several months must elapse be
fore another state coriventlon is held, poli
ticians are working to restore the union
of Southwestern "Washington counties In
matters palltlcal and endeavoring to
prove that the declaration that the
"Southwest" Jbad been split permanently
was not well founded.
The first spilt was worked by the men
who are now "Washington's state officials,
and naturally the movement toward ce
menting the Southwest again is being
started by the politicians opposed to the
administration. They insist that Chehalis
County is in new hands and that the
political leaders favorable- to them will be
able to line up the county beyond any
possibility of a break. "With the "Dalton
!orces" out of touch with Pacific County
it is Insisted that weak spot is in good
epalr. Lewis Is lost to the state admin
stration, for there Is no longer any serl
us doubt expressed 'as to the control of
that district and the! personel of an 1m
jortant part of the .county ticket.
Lord "Will FlRht Hard.
A serjous fight Is anticipated In Thurs
ton County, and It is here that the ambi
tion of C. J. Lord to be named as governor
sill play an important part in the politi
cal game. Lord, despite the fact that
politicians at first todk his candidacy
lightly, is a serious candidate'. Not only
that, but Thurston County politicians fig
ure he is strong enough to tie up the
county and to win It away from the state
administration despite the favors that
have been handed out in Thurston during
Lord represents a faction opposed to the
state administration. He has been made
Mayor of Olympia by what Is known as
the Madge-Scobey faction and' has always
worked with them. His boom for Gover
nor was launched by the same politicians.
And Lord was a good card to play, for he
Is not only strong in Thurston but he is
connected in Mason County In a way
that should bring that county into line.
It may be set dawn as a positive fact
that Lord will be a candidate for Governor
bo long as he has a chance of winning.
But if there ever comes a time when he
Bees that he cahnot land the place, he Is
not planning to permit the plum to fall
Into the hands of Governor McBride and
his friends. Lord wants the place himself,
but above that he wants to keep it away
from McBride. He is a good candidate to
unite on in Thurston County and the
Southwest. If he can land the place, his
friends will be jubilant, hut. If he does
nothing more than defeat McBride, they
will not have hard work to be satisfied.
Offers of Alliance From Ivinf?.
Some overtures have been made by In
terested King County politicians to the
Thurston County men. There are some
men in King County who hold that a
gubernatorial nomination is the last thing
King wants, just as there are those who
Insist King should take the place. Pierce
undoubtedly would prefer to nominate a
King County man, but the Pierce County
programme will not be carried out If
King County leaders can prevent it. All
of this works to the advantage of Lord
and Is a strong Incentive to the Southwest
to come In solid for certain offices.
At different times there have been sug
gestions that the Southwest would have
candidates for congressional offices. For
Instance, George H. Emerson, of Hoquiam;
"W. "W. McCredle, of Vancouver; State
Senator "Welty, of Lewis County, and a
number of others have been spoken of as
candidates for Representative. None of
them, however, are serious candidates, and
when Southwestern Washington politic
ians are asked for an available candidate,
they find they have none. The three
state officers elected from the Southwest
would like to be re-elected, but there Is.
serious opposition to them, and nobody
has been suggested In their place. In order
to get together In the old-time form, the
Southwest must have an incentive, which
does not appear strongly at present. But
there are able politicians in the Southwest
tvlly capable of discovering candidates
and good- reasons for unity, and they will
undoubtedly be discovered.
In .the meantime antl-adminlstratlon
politicians are firmly convinced that their
fight In tho Southwest will .be won. And
there is a more general opinion that the
combination will be restored.
HOPES FOR TREATY.
Colombian Minister Believes His
Senate Will Act.
"WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. Anxious over
the reports which have reached "Washing
ton that the delegates from the Depart
ment of Panama have withdrawn from
the sessions of the Colombian Congress
at Bogota, Dr. Thomas Herran, the acting
Minister of Colombia here, today tele
graphed to the Governor of Panama for
Information on the subject. Dr. Herran
discredited' the report as the advices from
his government have given no Intimation
of such action.
The three Senators from Panama, with
one exception, and he was bitterly op
posed to the treaty and the six members
of the House of Representatives, have as
siduously worked for the ratification of
the treaty. Their defection at this time.
Dr. Herran realizes, would be a serious
blow to the prospects for ratification. The
one Panama Senator who has opposed the
treaty has never lived In Panama, al
though being elected to the higher body
from that department.
The defection of the Panama delegates,
It Is suggested here, might be In the na
ture of a protest over the attitude of the
opposition to the treaty with the possibil
ity of secession from the national gov
ernment. Dr. Herran still clings to the
hope that a way will be found whereby
the present treaty will be ratified. He
lays much stress on the possibility that
the Senate may agree to a measure to be
subsequently passed by the House, where
there is said to be a majority for the
treaty, giving President Marroquln au
thority to negotiate directly an Instrument
along the lines of the present treaty.
President Marroquln Is known to be
heartily In favor of the treaty as It now
Is drawn, and if he were fully authorized
to do so the confident belief of Dr. Herran
is that the treaty would be ratified.
The Interruption to cable communication
with Bogota has been a source of Irrita
tion alike to the State Department and to
the Colombian Legation officials. It has
developed that United States Minister
Beaupre, at Bogota, failed to receive dis
patches sent to him by the State Depart
ment between July 24 and August 15. At
this time, when the United States Govern
ment is anxious to communicate frequent
ly with Mr. Beaupre this Interruption is
particularly annoying, and Dr. Herran has
asked the proper officials In Colombia to
investigate the cause therefor.
"WANT TO LOSE HERXAXDEZ.
Presidential Possibility Offered. Eu
PANAMA, Sept. 6. General Hernandez,
ex-President of Panama, who was spoken
of some time ago as a possible Presidential
candidate, has been offered an European
Legation. It Is said the government is
anxious to send him out of the country
and thus keep him out of the Presidential
Bogota advices say a stormy session was
recently held In the House of Representa
tives when the scandalous proceedings
arising out of the erratic conduct of Gen
eral Cobos, on July 25, came up for dis
cussion. The representative for the De
partment of Panama complained bitterly
that the Isthmus was being exploited as a
colony and that all the high officials were
appointed from other departments, Ric
ardo Arango being the only Governor ap
pointed from the isthmus since 18S5.
It Is believed here that it was the fear of
a secession movement which led to the ap
pointment of Senor Obaldia as Governor of
Panama with, It Is said, power to negoti
ate on the canal question.
General Sarrla, who has been appointed
Military Governor of Panama, is an
Isthmian at heart, having lived 20 years
MACARO FAVORABLY DISPOSED.
President of Colombian Senate Hopes
United States "Will Bnild Canal.
BOGOTA, Colombia, Tuesday, Sept. L
The Senate has appointed a commission to
prepare a bill authorizing the government
to negotiate a canal treaty without vio
lating the constitution, but the govern
ment has not presented to Congress a
message, which is necessary, asking for
reforms In the constitution to meet the
wishes of the United State regarding trib
unals, the sovereign control of the canal
strip and the 100-year lease.
The general feeling Is favorable to a
new treaty; Senor Macaro, the actual
president of the Senate, evpresses his ad
miration for the noble and sincere policy
pursued by the United States, and hopes
that the canal will be opened by them.
He says he regrets that he was obliged to
oppose the Hay-Herran treaty as being a
violation of the laws and the constitution,
but he will work strongly for a canal
treaty satisfactory to both countries.
Senor Abaldia, who has decided to sup
port the canal treaty, has been appointed
Governor of Panama. He will leave for
his post tomorow.

which remain neutral.

BULGARIA WILIi NOT FIGHT.
Realizes That It Will Lose Even If
Turks Are Defeated.
SOFIA, Sept. 6. According to reliable
reports from Varna, at the recent council
of Ministers, presided over by Princo
Ferdinand at the palace of Euxlnograd, it
Ws resolved that Bulgaria should con
tinue to maintain an attitude of the strict
est neutrality in the Macedonian ques
tion and further that the most stringent
measures should be adopted to prevent
anything likely to cause a disturbance In
Bulgaria's relations with Turkey.
The War Minister Is reported to have
spoken strongly in the council against
any thought of Bulgaria declaring war
on Turkey; first on account of the enor
mous expenditure that such a war would
Involve and secondly because the great
powers would never permit Bulgaria to
reap the advantage If she were victorious.
Should Turkey attack Bulgaria, declared
the Minister, the present army could hold
the Turks In check for the first few days
while the entire Bulgarian army could
bo mobilized within three to 12 days. Bul
garia would never declare war, he added,
but If war was declared against her, she
would accept the challenge fearlessly. "
As an evidence of Bulgaria's peaceful
Intentions, the council decided that upon
tho first symptoms of disorder on the
frontier martial law would be proclaimed
at Burgas, Kofitendll, Phillppolls and So
fia. The Ministers expressed the opinion
that the powers would soon reach the
conviction that the Macedonian question
could not be decided without their inter
vention. The Autonomye publishes the names of
50 villages burned by the Turks In the
foreign districts: Resen, 30 villages; Kos
tur, 14; Brushevo, 6, and 1 monastery.
The Turkish burned four villages In the
district of Strushkopolls and murdered the
priest. The population fled to the moun
tains. The Turkish have destroyed all
the flour mills In the district of Resin and
also every church.
A flght Is reported to have taken place
at the village of Vetresko, In the district
of Kulanovo, between a body of insurg
ents and a Turkish battalion. It lasted
four hours and the Turks lost heavily.

headquarters here of atrocities by the

Say Stories of Macedonian Horrors
Are Greatly Exasperated.
PARIS, Sept. 7. In an Interview pub

Munlr Pasha, the Turkish Ambassador,
declares the published stories of atrocities
and massacres in Macedonia to be grossly
exaggerated. Though such acts may have
been commltteed by Turkish soldiers, he
says, they are merely Isolated Instances
and acts of reprisal for similar deeds
committed by the insurgents.
Turkey wants peace and has mobollzcd
a sufficient force to crush all opposition,
which Is the best means to prevent blood

not believe there will be war with Bul

He asserts that much of the money of
