stonolns between Hart and McNary for
lour years, by which McNary stayed out
o the race in 1900 and Hart dropped out
ibis year. Hart made the race this year
lor the purpose of keeping out other
candidates and at the proper time he
withdrew, leaving McNary to take the
nomination without opposition. 11 Hart
had withdrawn a month ago there would
have been a half dozen candidates lor the
place. It therefore appears that Mc
Nary was not a candidate against Hart,
though outward appearances indicated
that he was. McNary has been Deputy

in the largo Eastern Oregon Senatorial
and Representative districts composed of
Klamath, Luke, Crook and Grant Coun
ties, where one Senator and two Repre
sentatives were named. In each of these
districts competition was spirited.
It took four ballots to select a Joint
Senator in the district composed of Yam
hill, Tillamook and Lincoln Counties,
which had 11, flvo and five dolegates res
pectively. There were three candidates,
B. F. Jones, of Lincoln, and G. S. Wright
and "W. Tyler Smith, of Yamhill. Tho first
three ballots resulted: Jones, 5; Smith, 6
and Wright 10. Want of time was all that
prevented tho contest from continuing
longer but the hour for tho convention
to call to order had arrived and one of
the Smith men changed to Wright, thus
ending the contest. Jones had his own
delegation, Smith had the Tillamook con
tingent and one delegate from Yamhill,
while Wright had ten from Yamhill until
the last ballot, when ho secured the 11th.
Delegates from the other district held a
caucus fully two hour long in Imperial
Hotel. Between Laycock, of Grant, who
won out, Gesner, of Crook, and Emmett,
of Klamath, the political game was lively.
Whispered consultations outside the cau
cus were frequent. Gesner led at first.
His main supporters were tho men from
his own county, and he received varying
votes from Grant and Klamath. Lay
cock was aided by a majority of his own
county and by Lake and finally votes
were spirited away from Klamath to him
and he was the nominee. Lake voted sol
idly for Laycock. Masslnglll taking that

James Coleman and Jack McCarty
Suspected of Fur Robbery.
James Coleman, tyho was arrested on
suspicion by Detectives Day, Snow,
Kerrigan and Weiner yesterday noon,
1s none other than J. Willie Holmes,
one of tho cleverest forgers that ever
operated on tho Pacific Coast. Holmes
received a 20-year sentence to San
Quentin about five years ago for forg
ery in San Francisco, but his conduct
was so good that ho was released on
parole about a year ago. That he
has Jumped his parole is evidenced by
the fact that he is in Oregon, it being
contrary to the California state law
lor a man on parole to leave tho state
until the expiration of his term of sen
tence. Coleman was arrested at the corner
-of Fifth and Jefferson streets. He was
drunk and had $10 in his pockets when
searched at the police station. For sev
eral days he has frequently been seen
In the company of Jack McCarty, -who
was arrested early yesterday morning
on a charge of the robbery of the Q.
P. Rumelin fur stor Saturday night,
and it is believed that he is an accom
plice of McCarty's, the two men hav
ing been Intimately acquainted in Cal
ifornia some years ago.
McCarty was arrested by Detectivo
Joe Day last Sunday evening on sus
picion, but for want of evidence of any
violation of the law was released tho
following morning. Joe Day accused
him of the Rumelin theft at the time,
hut .McCarty was wise enough to know
that no evidence had been gathered
against him. and managed to regain his
liberty. Yesterday morning, when ar
rested, he had one of the electric seal
capes that was stolen from the Rum
elin store, Mr. Rumelin identifying it
as one of the stolen capes as soon as
he saw it.
Race Feeling Becomes Intense.
KANSAS CITY, April 11 The race feel
ing in Kansas City, Kan., caused by the
killing of Roy Martin, a high school fresh--rnan,
by a negro named Gregory, is
growing in Intensity. Today six negroes,
who accompanied Gregory to the Jail on
the night of the murder armed with rifles,
were arrested on a charge of inciting a
riot, which, in Kansas, is a felony. Mar
tin's friends, it is said, will make a deter
mined effort on Monday to keep all ne
groes from entering the high school, and
a clash may result. Gregory was ar
raigned and held without bail for trial.

NEW ACTORS AND ACTRESSES
ENGAGED IN THE 'EAST.
Guy Standing Is to Be the Leading
Man and Rebecca Warren the
Leading Woman. .
Negotiations are now so far advanced
that it Is -possible at this time to give
the roster of the new Baker Theater
Company for next season. Among the
new members -ore: Guy Standing, leading
man; Rebecca Warren, leading woman;
Dallas Tyler, ingenue; Charles Mackay,
Juvenile roles; Marie Boland, second lead
ing woman, and Scott Cooper, characters.
The present members of the company
who have been re-engaged are: William
Bernard, William JL Dills. Howard Rus
sell, Carlyle Moore, Frederick Esmclton
and Mlna C. Gleason. There are also sev
eral new people under consideration for
minor roles. In the theatrical world this
company is thought to be equal to any
stock company that has ever been assem
bled on the Pacific Coast, not even except
ing that of Henry Miller.
The new Baker Theater Company will
open at Los Angeles, Cal., May L where
it will remain for seven weeks, and then
it will be seen at the California Theater,
San Francisco, for a six weeks' engage
ment. It Is expected that the company
will appear at the home stand, the Baker
Theater, about the latter part of August,
opening that house for the season. It Is
confidently predicted that the company
will meet with a hearty reception during
Its stay in California and Oregon new
and present members alike. It has been
Manager George L. Baker's especial am
bition to secure a company of women that
are very attractive in personality and art
istic and clever In their stage work a rare
combination that not only costs money but
is somewhat difficult of accomplishment.
Naturally, considerable interest is folt
In tho new leading roan, Guy Standing, an
Englishman, standing six feet two inches
tall, powerfully built, and said to be some
thing of the AdDnls type so far as good
looks arc concerned. Aside from being a
clever actor, he is a noted musician and
writer, and is of an athletic turn of mind.
He is an experienced yachtsman, and in
his spare time from rehearsals and public
performances, may be seen along the
Willamette and Columbia rivers In his
yacht Mr. Standing was leading man
with Charles Wyndham In London, and
was engaged to support John Drew for
several seasons, sharing honors with Mr.
Drew in a number of Broadway successes.
He was also Henry Miller's leading man
for several seasons, and Is what is termed
a Broadway favorite, which is said to be
the ambition of every actor in this coun
try. Up to the time of his engagement
with the Baker Theater Company, Mr.
Standing was leading man with Charles
Frobman's Empire Theater Stock Com
pany, supporting Fay Davis in "The
Whitewashing of Julia." It is generally
considered that Manager Baker must have
offered considerable financial Inducement
In order to tempt Mr. Standing to become
a Pacific Coast actor.
Rebecca Warren, the leading woman, is
a handsome brunette, has dark hair and
eyes, is young, good looking, a skillful
dresser, and Is especially capable of emo
tional work. Miss Warren is also a Broad
way favorite, and made a hit in a stock
company at Toledo, O. She is pronounced
to be one of the "bset leading women on
tho American stage. During the present
season she starred in a special produc
tion of Hardy's "'Toss of the D'Uber
villes," and many critics went on record
as preferring her performance of Tess
to that of Mrs. Flske.
Dallas Tyler, the ingenue, has been
Identified with prominent Eastern suc-
cosses for some little time past and Is a
beautiful type of a young woman.
Charles Mackay, who is to appear in
Juvenile roles, was formerly with the
Dearborn Stock Company in Chicago, and
for several seasons was with tho Castle
Square Company, in Boston, one of the
greatest stock organizations In America.
He has also appeared on Broadway, New
York, with Charles Frohman and other
Marie Boland, the second woman. Is a
decided .blonde, quite a contrast to Mlp3
Warren, and Is a capable and experienced
Scott Cooper, the character man of the
company, was a very successful actor on
the Pacific Cpast 20 years ago. Ho played
In the old" California Stock Company,
which was one of the best-known organi
zations In this country at that time. He
went East "with Joseph Grismer and
Phoebe Davis, whose succces in "Way
Down East" Is known to all theater-goers.
Mr. Cooper has mot with great success In
the East, and It was only by a flattering
offer that Mr. Baker was able to secure
him for his company.
George Alison, Esther Lyon, Oza Wal
drop, and other members of the present
Baktr Theater Company, whoso resigna
tions from that organization take effect
at the clqse of the present season in Seat
tle, are to leave ?or the East where other
engagements await their consideration.
UPPER EIVER IS PALLING.
Willamette at Portland Will Continue
to Rise Slowly.
After rising with dangerous rapidity
to a height of 14.2 Inches at 11 o'clock
yesterday morning, tho Willamette
River only rose three-tenths of a foot
from that time till 5 in the afternoon,
and the maximum 'height of 17 feet
foretold "by District Forecaster E. A.
Deals will probably not be reached un
til early next week. Today or tomor
row it will rise to 16 feet
The crest of the flood has already
passed Eugene, where, the river, after
remaining stationary for 24 hours, be
gan to fall very slowly yesterday
morning. It is still rising slightly at
Albany and a little moro rapidly at
Salem, half a foot in 24 hours.
The Snake is still rising, and tho full
effect of that will not be folt for a. day
or two. At Wolser, Lewlston and Rl
parla, reports stato that the river is
rising about a foot and a quarter every
The height of 17 feet expected will
do very little damage. It will moroly
flood the lower flqors of some of tho
docks, from which all the damageable
property has been removed. However,
the high water is likely to last some
what longer on account of tho rise in
the Columbia. Cooler weather over the
Northwest will stop that for a tlmo at
least and the 17 feot forecasted will
be tho limit at present So far the
forecasts of Mr. Bcals havo been to the
fraction of a foot his forecast of the
day before yesterday that the river
would reach 14.5 feet yesterday after
noon proving correct to the decimal.
The more water running out of the
Snake at this time of year the better
it is for Portland, preventing the dan
ger of a combination of rises on the
Columbia and Snako at tho same tlmo
With tho snow deep in the mountains
and prospects of occasional meltlnc
weather, the Columbia is likely to re
main high all Spring, but ono or two
rises In the Willamette will do for it
Small floods of the present size are
beneficial In preventing a cumulation of
high-waters in June. The snow has to
be got rid of ono way or another, and
continuous moderately nign water
will clear away a groat deal of It now.

OREGON REPUBLICANS INDORSE PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT AND HIS POLICIES
The Republican party of Oregon, in convention assembled, congratulates the state and Nation upon the
continued ascendency of Republican principles and policies In our National Government and the unprece
dented prosperity that has followed the maintenance of those principles and the enforcement of those poli
cies. The honor of the Nation has been fearlessly and sagaciously maintained, at home and abroad, whether
in the enforcement of law against defiant corporations, in vigorous protest against outrages on Americans
In Syria, Jewish massacres In Russia and unfavorable machinations of European powers In Asia.
President Roosevelt has redeemed his pledge to carry out the policies of the party as formulated by that
STeat statesman and revered martyred President, William McKInley.
He has shown himself the foe of corruption In public life, the ardent champion and wise friend of the
Army and Navy, and the Arm believer in equal rights before the law to employer and employe, rich or
poor, black or white.
Under his energetic leadership the Isthmian Canal, frustrated for a time by a Democratic President, is
soon to be realized and to distinguish his Administration by one of the grandest engineering tri
umphs known to man.
We recognize the profound obligation under which Oregon rests to President Roosevelt for his active
and determined effort on behalf of the Lewis and Clark Centennial, and we pledge ourselves to testify the
sincerity of this appreciation by a rousing majority for the Republican ticket in June and again in Novem-
In this connection we especially indorse the tireless labors of Senators Mitchell and Fulton and Repre
sentatives Hermann and Williamson.
We instruct the delegates of this convention to the Republican National Convention at Chicago to vote
first and last for Theodore Roosevelt for President, and to use all honorable means for bringing his nom
ination to pass. N
THE DELEGATION IN CONGRESS
For the first time in years the State of Oregon Is represented in both houses of Congress by a strong,
harmonious, united and effective delegation, inferior to none from the West
Their efforts In behalf of the Nation, their party and their state have been crowned with signal success,
and we hereby express to them our confidence and esteem and pledge them our support in their further ef
forts to advance the interests of Oregon and the Pacific Coast
Thanks to the courage and wisdom of two Republican Administrations and four Republican Congresses,
the money of the Nation has been securely established upon the gold standard, the standard of the enlight
ened nations of the world.
The per capita circulation Is the largest in our history, and every dollar of paper and coin Is as good as
We commend the measures now pending in Congress, at the instance of Republican members, further
amending the currency and banking laws in the direction of safety and elasticity,
We renew our allegiance to the principle of protection to American industries.
The merits of the DIngley law are attested by the unprecedented prosperity of the Nation since its pas
sage in 1897. ,
Schedules must be changed from time to time, as new conditions arise, but when the tariff 13 revised it
must De Dy me inenas, ana not oy the roes, of American industry.
THE TRUSTS -
We heartily commend the fearless and determined course pursued by President Roosevelt and Attorney
General Knox toward the trusts, and we point with pride to the hostility aroused against the Administra
tion among the speculators of Wall street and corporations that defy the law.
Obedience to the law against monopoly inflicts no hardship on any honest Industry, and the action of the
President In the Northern Securities merger and other cases has only served to check dangerous speculation
and encourage every legitimate enterprise.
We indorse the policy enunciated by President McKinley and followed by Secretary Taft of "the Philip
pines for the Filipinos," and we especially commend the earnest and persistent efforts made by Senator
Mitchell for lower tariffs between the Philippines and the United States.
We hold that the Philippines must be setained by the United States for their own good as well as for
a base of American influence in the Far East, but that Justice requires the least possible burdens upon their
commerce with the United States, that they may be cemented to us -by ties of self-interest and affection.
In the Interest of Pacific development, we demand for the Philippines the same liberal and beneficent
treatment that has been accorded to Hawaii and Porto BIco.
Proud of the history and achievements of our party, and especially of the present Administration and
the beneficent results that our Nation is receiving therefrom, and particularly our old Oregon Country, we
confidently submit our cause to the patriotic citizens of our state for Indorsement, and earnestly appeal to
them to show their gratitude and appreciation to President Roosevelt and our Republican leadera In Con
gress for honoring our history and aiding in the development of our matchless resources.
