OFF FOR EUROPE
Senator Mitchell Begins
a Long Journey.
GAREY IS LEFT IN POWER
Matthews Stands in Shadow
of the Throne.
ORGANIZATION IS UNCHANGED
Many Admirers Call to Sny Good-
Bye to Dean of Congressional
Delegation, Who Confides Po
litical Interests to Friends.
THE MEN IX POWER.
Judge Carey is chairman of the Re
publican County and City Central Com
mittees, the members of which he and
W. F. Matthews named a year ago.
"I know of no reason," said Senator
Mitchell, "why Judge Carey should not
remain at the head of the party, pro
vided he Is willing' to serve.
"Mr. Matthews will take no active
part In politics. He holds no political
position. He Is In a Federal office."
What a lot of handshaking there was!
Many a fine day will come and go until
the like is seen again as many, perhaps.
as until next June, when Senator Mitchell
The Senator Is off for Europe.
The hands of the clock lacked just 15
minutes of the midnight hour when the
Senator's train pulled away toward Ta
coma. The bleaklng lights of the city
grew fewer and fewer as the Senator,
speeding on his journey, looked backward
tnrougn tne car window, soon all the
lights were cone. Portland was far ho-
hlnd. He was to cross a continent and an
ocean before he came again.
The Senator is not going to Washing
ton right away: he took nartlcular nains
to explain this yesterday to "all the vis
itors that filed into room "500." First he
will go to France to see his wife and his
daughter, the Duchess of Rochefoucauld.
who are ill and whom he has not seen
for some time.,
Just before the Senator left the hotel
last night he submitted to an interview
in which he discussed politics. From hia
remaiks, it was clear that the political
organization of this county is to be left
in the hands of C. H. Carey and W. F.
Matthews. Mr. Matthews 13 to abide in
the shadow, and not to make himself con
spicuous, while Judge Carev Is to be the
head of the organization. The organlza-4
uon. instead of beincr broadened out i
to be left just as it Is and as it has been,
and the much-vaunted "reorganization"
Is to be nothing more.
"I see no reason," said the Senator,
"why Judge Carey, if he is willing to
serve, should not continue at the head of
the party. So long as he occupies the
position of chairman of the Republican
county and city committees, he , shall
have my loyal and undivided support, and
I trust he will have the support of every
friend of mine in this county and city."
Whereat the Senator resumed hand
shaking. Freely he chatted with every'
gentleman who forged to the fore, with
this admirer about the weather, with that
about his happy stay here all Summer;
with the next about something else, and
so on. Cheerfully he exhorted all his
ifrlends to 'be of strong courage and to
look to Judge Carey for guidance In this
county and to Frank C. Baker In the
"You pay high tribute to Judge Carey,"
"Well, he deserves it," was the re
sponse. "I have implicit faith in him."
Just then something flitted across the
Senator's mind of the report that Judge
Carey would not bo averse to becoming,
"United States Senator, and he said:
"The report is false."
"But how about Matthews?" was asked.
Bancroft Says Farewell.
"Well," but just then a louu rap on the
door reverberated throughihe room. The
Senator arose and admitted the visitors.
Their voices sounded like those of A. A.
Courteney and Postmaster Bancroft.
When the callers had entered far enough
'to let the full light fall upon their fea
tures, all doubt about their Identity Van
ished. "Have chairs," Invited Senator Mitchell,
busying himself like a good host "Sit
So down sat Messrs. Courteney and Ban
croft 4 A number of subjects occupied the
discussion all as far distant from the
one from which the Senator had been
called as China from Peru.
"I've had a very enjoyable stay here all
Summer, remarked the Senator. "So cool
It's been that there doesn't seem to have
been any Summer at all." Then the
Senator was brought back to the question
about Mr. Matthews.
"What's the use," ho protested, "of
saying anything about It?" and then to
satisfy the pressing inquiry, he added:
"State your question directly and I'll
answer it directly."
"What will be Mr. Matthews' place in
politics?" was the question.
"You'll have to ask him," was the re
sponse. "He's the man to go to. He will
not take an active part in politics next
year. He has told me he would not He
now holds no political position. He oc
cupies a Federal office, that of United
States Marshal, which he will not jeop
ardize by engaging In politics. But,"
added the Senator, In slower measure, "I
presume Mr Matthews will retain the
privilege of his American citizenship."
Judge Moreland, who Is a candidate for
United States District Attorney, and who
had drifted In to pay his respects, asked
lightly of Mr. Bancroft whether he would
retain those same privileges. Mr. Ban
croft returned a laugh as an answer.
No Information About Plains.
Senator Mitchell would not be drawn
out to tell about any Federal appoint
ment, whatsoever. He would not reveal
when the half-dozen plums still on the
tree will toe distributed. Perhaps he told
Judge Moreland when the District At
torneyship will be awarded; if so, the
Judge knows more than he ever did be
fore. It's evident that the awards are not to
be made until next Winter, unless, per
haps, the President can Induce the dele
gation to recommend' successors to Brat
tain and Bailey in the Lakeview Land
Office right away. 1
"The question,", said the Senator, "as
to who shall be appointed to the few
offices In Oregon, or as to who shall con
trol their appointments In comparison
with other important Interests involved,
The Senator's guests made ready to take
their departure. They were rejoiced to
see him in such perfect health. He was
pleased to tell them he never felt better
in his life. They hoped he would return
soon. He regretted that he would not
come back for nine or ten months. They
trusted he would think of them frequently.
Indeed he would, and if he could be of
any service to them at Washington tbey
would And him at their disposal.
Then the visitors bade adieu to the Sen
ator, shook hands with him, bowed them
selves out, closed the door behind them
and were gone.
Will Delay Arrival in Washington.
A few minutes later down came the
Senator to the office of the hotel to pay
his bill. More greetings and adieus. A
reporter approached the Senator a second
time, and this is what the Senator said:
"I shall not be in Washington until the
last part of October or early in November,
a week before Congress meets in extraor
dinary session. November 9.
"I did not expect to leave Portland until
the latter part of October. I go thus
early, not on public, but on private busi
ness, which, In all probability, will take
me to Europe. Therefore I do not ex
pect to have any discussion with Govern
ment officials until I reach Washington,
In regard either to appointments in Ore
gon or to any public matter.
"I hope and expect to be on deck when
Congress meets, and tOtglvc the people of
Oregon, as I have done heretofore, my
best efforts in their interest."
Senator Mitchell had not thus far
spoktn freely on politics, and It loo"ked as
if he would not do so. Many times in the
past three or four months he has. declined
to discuss county politics for publication.
But on the eve of his departure his tongue
loosened, and he said:
"Much has been said in the public press
to the effect that I have been attempting
to do this, that or the other thing In re
gard to political affairs in this county and
cltv. It is true that during my pleasant
stay here of nearly four months, I have
talked with many old friends in regard to
p ics. I bavo made many new ac
quaintances and have discussed, with as
many leading men of the city as I have
been able to meet the Important public
questions in which we all are interested,
and which are to come before Congress.
"Any statement, however," and the Sen
ator spoke impressively, "that I have
been trying to organize or to reorganize
politics in this city and county, in any
shape, manner or form, is not supported
by the facts.
"Through the generosity of the Legis
lature of Oregon. I am now serving my
fourth terra in the United States Senate.
Personally I have no claims, either on
the state or on the Republican party of
Uregon. Re-election to the Senate of the
United States for a fifth term, at the end
of my present term, could not, of course,
be otherwise than gratifying to me, should
the 'Legislature or the people of the state
so decide. ,
"But to secure that high honor I do not
think that I ought personally to attempt
to organize or to disorganize or to enter
Into any scramble for control."
Inactive in Politics.
Two or three times in the course of his
remarks he gave emphasis to this senti
ment "During my stay here," he went
on, "I have taken no part in politics ex
cept to assist my friends in the reorgan
ization of. the State Central Committee.
"As I understand the present organiza
tion, political I mean, In this city and
county, has for its present head Hon.
Charles H. Carey, one of the leading law
yers, best citizens and uncompromising
Republicans of the city. Personally I
know of no reason, provided always ho Is
willing to serve, why he should not con
tinue at the head of the party.
"Doubtless there are some leading Re
publicans who would prefer another man
for chairman of the committees; this Is
but natural. So long, however, as he is
chairman of the Republican county and
city committees he will have my loyal
and undivided support, and I trust he will
have the support of every friend of mine
In this county and city.
"I happen to know that Judge Carey, on
account of his personal business affairs,
is disinclined to continue at the head of
the parj'y in the coming campaign, and
that he has not yet obtained his own con
sent to continue the leadership. I have
reason to believe, "however, that should
he decide to continue as chairman of the
committees, he would desire to associate
with himself an executive committee of
representative men. Such men would be
Influential members of the party.
Even as much as Senator Mitchell had
praised Judge Carey up to this point he
praised him more. The laudation came
out In a serious tone of voice, accompan
ied by a forceful gesture. And these, were
the words of the Senator, verbatim et
"I regafd Judge Carey as one of the
best political organizers In this city. Ho
Is an honorable, high-minded, conscien
tious man and an uncompromising Re
publican. All this must be conceded by
unprejudiced persons who know him well."
Senator MUchell was surrounded by
several admirers by this time, all of
whom were impatient to get his atten
tion. But he held them off long enough
to make this flnal remark:
"I have told you all this on the eve
of my departure from Oregon. I do not
expect to return until after the election
of next June. You will not find me at
tempting In any way to Interfere with
politics in this county and city. I shall
give my whole attention at Washington
to the public matters In which, our city,
state and Coast are so vitally Interested."
Senator Fulton came up from Astoria
last night to say farewell. Representative
Williamson said good-bye In the after
noon and boarded the 6 o'clock O. R. &
N. train for home.
Senator Mitchell will spend today at Ta
coma. Some persons have suspected that
he Intends to interview Senator Foster
toward making a combination with the
Washington delegation In land matters.
Senator Mitchell, however, said such sus
picions were without foundation. When
he was asked whether Western delegations
would unite to resist or modify the land
policy of the Interior Department he re
sponded: "That I can't say. The people of the
West are not against reserves, but they
oppose the reserve policy that Is carried
to an extreme. In Oregon, for example,
the policy Is run wild."

TRYING TO FORCE BULGARIA.
Macedonian Committee Is Strnlninp
Every Nerve "to Brine War.
SOFIA, Sept. 7. In official quarters
there is a suspicious absence of news from
the Interior of Macedonia and also from
Adrianople, and it is feared that the con
ditions there are steadily becoming worse.
The Macedonian organizations are strain
ing every nerve to force Bulgaria into a
war. The large and small bands are
crossing the frontier of Northern Mace
donia where General Zontcheff and Colonel
Yankoff are organizing the Insurrectionary
movement which Is expected to break out
in the valley of the Strumba before the
end of the week.
The Macedonian Committees are prose
cuting an active campaign to raise funds
in Bulgaria. They are addressing letters
to everybody in a position to contribute
to the cause. The applications usually do
not refer to the revolutionary movement,
but. ask aid for the starving and homeless
fugitives from Macedonia. Where wealthy
citizens decline to subscribe the organiza
tions do not hesitate to make strong repre
sentations. A rich merchant of Phlllp
polis was recently told that unless he
contributed $5000 his house would be blown
Several fights are reported from the dis
trict of Losengrad. At the Bashl-Bazouk
village of Sashira the Turks lost 20 men.
At Tersldere a band fought 300 soldiers
all day with the result that the Turks bad
37 men killed while the insurgents lost
five. At Prespan, In the Okerda district,
fighting has long bevn proceeding between
Insurgent bands and an army of 20,000
Turks. The latter are reported to have
lost more than 200 killed or wounded. An
engagement lasting all dav has been
fought at PrityllstI, Monastlr vilayet. In
which the Turkish loss was given as 40,
and the Insurgent" loss as five. A band,
led by Yanko Stoyanoff, has destroyed
the village of Gorlnokavieve, Carlpengrad,
a notorious haunt of Turkish brigands.
The newspaper. Poshta, asserts that all
the villages In the district of Loren are
burning. According to revolutionary es
timates, Turkey now has in Macedonia an
army of 175.000 men, with 3700 horses and
In an engagement at Simen, Losengrad,

WAR EXPECTED ANY DAY.
Some Frontier Incident Is Expected
to Participate Hostilities.
CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 7. War be
tween Turkey and Bulgaria Is now re
garded here as Inevitable. It Is even be
lieved that the outbreak, of hostilities will
occur before the end of September, when
the reinforcements from Asia will have
been concentrated In Macedonia and In
tho vilayet of Adrianople.
It Is not thought there will be any for
mal declaration of war, In view of Bul
garia's vassal status, but that some fron
tier Incident will precipitate hostilities.
The Bulgarians and Macedonians resid
ing in Constantinople are in terror of
massacre. A large number of them were
arrested a few days ago, as a "preventive
measure," and they have not yet been
released. The fear of a massacre Is prob
ably exaggerated, although, in view of
the present excited state of Mussulman
feeling, an Insignificant incident might
perhaps lead to a massacre.
The terrible accounts received regard

but many who have hitherto been optim
