WORKING FOR MILLS
His Supporters Believe They
Can Defeat Kay.
TIE-UP WITH VAWTER LIKELY
Kuykendall Forces in the Senate Will
Probably Assist the Multnomah
Candidate for Speaker
Change Mining Tax.
Notwithstanding T. B. Kay's an
nounoomont that he can win the
Speakership against Multnomah, the
boomors of A. ii Mills in this county
are confident that Mr. Kay has counted
more votes than arc coming: to him.
It is understood that behind Mr. Mills
will be the Republican organization of
the state as well as of this county.
Influences are now at work to snatch
away members of the lower house who
are said to have tied themselves up to
Mr. Kay. Indications are that the or
ganization in the Senate which will be
headed probably by Dr. Kuykendall, of
Lane, and which Is allied with the
forces now behind Mr. Mills, will use
Its power of legislation In the upper
chamber to pull men from Mr. Kay to
the Multnomah candidate in the lower
"The fellows who want appropria
tions and other things from the Legis
lature have got to stand In," declared
one of the men yesterday who Is at tho
head of the Kuykendall-Mills move
ment. Mills and Vawter May Unite.
An alliance will be attempted be
tween the Mills forces and the Vawter
contingent from Southern Oregon. Mr.
Vawter, who hails from Jackson Coun
ty, and who is himself a candidate for
the Speakership, has frequently signi
fied his desire to go in with Multnomah.
But he has three allies who are claimed
by Kay after they shall have left him.
They are believed to be Gray and Son
neman, of Douglas, and Jackson, of
Jackson County. The other three votes
whloh arc Vawter's those of Hermann,
of Coos, and Von der Hellen, of Jack
son, and his own are said to be avail
able for a tie-up with Multnomah.
Hermann is irreconcilably hostile to
Mr. Vawter Is expected to arrive at
Portland in a day or two, ready to
'talk business." Inasmuch as he has
votos which are claimed by Kay after
the Marion man shall have withdrawn,
it will bo a study whether to invite
Vawter to deliver his followers to
Multnomah's candidate at once or to
wait until Kay has shown up all his
Multnomah for Kuykendall.
Prom present appearances Multnomah
Will give Kuykendall all its seven
votes. The only doubtful vote of the
scvon that of C W. Nottingham will
go with the other six if nothing shall
arise between now and the meeting of
the Icgislaturo to change Mr. Notting
ham's mind. Yesterday Mr. Notting
ham said that while he had not pledged
himself to stay with tho other Sena
tors of his delegation, still he believed
"there will bo no trouble." Mr. Not

the opinion that Dr. Kuykendall will
be elected President' Mr. Nottingham

Cutler Mountain murder, wore in Color

according to the Information unearthed
by the city detectives today. This would
bring their presence in this city down to

A woman believed to bo Mrs. Bouton

tively stated, was haved in a local bar
ber shop one day during the week begin

intervening time has not yet been learned,
but the officers are tracing the matter.
Another clew that was furnished to the
officers today was from two well-known
purveyors of this city who, on December
K, were driving up North Cheyenne
Canyon when they were overtaken by a
man who answers the description of
Franklin and who was carrying a bundle
rf soft material. The goneral appearanco
of the man caused considerable comment,
as ho did not appear to be a man accus

American Explorer Who Went in Ad

CHICAGO, Dec SO. "Word has reached
Chicago of the death of Francis H. Nich

heading for L'Hassa, the "Forbidden
City." and started on his long trip before
the British expedition under Colonel
Younghusband was formed. He was trav

death were meager. It Is said a native
courser brought the news to a mission

Nichols was a correspondent during the
Spanish-American "War. Returning from

GOOD THING; KNOCK IT.
Rural Carrier's View of Parcels Post
G RES HAM. Or., Dec. 29. (To the Editor.)
From the tenor of your editorial on "The
Local Parcels Post," in The Oregonlan of
December 27, one would think you were cham
pioning a "sarcastic" cause or endeavoring to
destroy rural free delivery. The rural letter
carriers re grot very much that The Oegonlan
and at least two other loading- papers of the
United States should take Secretary Cowles,
of the Postal Progress League, to be In ear
nest in bis recommendation for a parcels post.
He is either indulging in a flnc bit of sarcastic
humor, or else he has insects under his thatch.
"Wo do not believe that he is attempting to
Injure rural free delivery in making hla ab
surd recommendations, but if his suggestions
are adopted that will be the ultimate end of
Being a rural lettercarrJer and thoroughly fa
miliar with the work, I do not hesitate to say
that 00 per cent of the present force in tho
United States will resign if a law should bo
panned requiring us to carry packages weigh
ing 200 pounds or measuring six feet in length.
We have buggies and carts and light mall
wagons, with light horses, which have cost us
an average of $200 apiece. "With such convey
ances, wc are not prepared to carry heavy
articles, nor have we ever done ao. If we
should be required to deliver such heavy par
cels as Secretary Cowles proposes we would
have to quit, because we could not do eo with
our present facilities, and but few of us would
go to the expense of buying heavier and cost
lier wagons and horsoa. Then, too, but very
few of us are phyvically ablo to handle such'
large packages, many carriers being only boys,
others girls, and some are aged veterans of
the Civil War. Very few would be ablo to do
the lifting required, and they would surely
seek a Job with some truck and dray company
if they had to do such work, for the pay would
be better and the expenses less.
From the standpoint of the Postoflice De
partment, the plan is not feasible. Clerks
and carriers are instructed to expedite the
malta, which Include in great part the news
papers of the world. The Oregonlan among
them. If wo were required to handle freight
In heavy wagons, wo would be delaying the
letters and papers, and instead of making our
trips in a tew hours we would be all day on
the routes, and you can readily perceive what
the result would be.
In the City of Washington there have been
enemies to rural free delivery in high places.
Many of our newspapers have not been friend
ly toward the service, and there are kickers
against the system everywhere, but It seems
that others whom we know to be our friends
are making a great mistake. Among them Is
the American Grange Bull Win, official paper of
the National Grange. It thinks Sccrotary
Cowles is doing Just the right thing, and yet
the National Grange is the mother of rural
free delivery. The San Francisco Argonaut,
too, seems to have made the error of in
dorsing the scheme, and there are many others.
Now, in justice to an underpaid class of pub
lic servants, wc would request that such ab
surd plans be burled deep down in oblivion by
newspaper opinions instead of being approved
as a good thing. The lettercarriers, the people,
the whole Nation except the express and rail
road companies, would welcome a parcels post
service that would Increase the postal reve
nues and not be a burden to the carriers nor
dolay the legitimate mail matter; but when
a measure Is proposed whloh would menace
the rural free delivery system. It seems that
"sane" people and "sane" newspapers should
think three times before speaking.

TWO ARE MERGED
Northwestern System Is -Now
, in One.
TO COMBINE LOCAL OFFICES
Consolidation Will Have Effect of
Abolishing Portland Office of the
Chicago & St. Paul Line
Forces Slightly Changed.
R. R. Ritchie, Pacific Coast agent of the
Chicago & Northwestern Railroad, reached
the city last night on the delayed South
ern Pacific train, from his headquarters
at San Francisco, and will today 'begin
the merging of the offices of the Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha with those
of the Chicago & Northwestern road.
These two lines both go to make up the
Northwestern system, but heretofore, for
various reasons, the offices have been kept
separate and distinct. It Is now thought
best, however, for reasons of economy and
convenience, to put the local offices of the
Northwest under one head, and with this
end In view the offices of the two com
panies at Portland, Seattle, Spokane and
Helena will each be put under the charge
of the one company or the other.
In Portland the office of the Chicago &
St. Paul line will be abandoned and the
business will be consolidated with that of
the Chicago & Northwestern. The changes
In the forces of the two offices, however.
will bo slight, and. such as they are, were
announced last night by .Mr. Kitcme.
The office of general agent will be filled
by "W. A. Cox, who has been up to this
time general agent for the Northwestern
at Philadelphia, and who will reach Port-
land in a day or. two to assume charge
of his new duties on January 1, when all
the changes go into effect.
H. B. "Barker, who has occupied the po
sition of general agent for the Chicago &
Northwestern, will from January 1 be the
assistant general agent, though his duties
will bo practically the same as they have
A. J. Leland and C. J. Gray, now trav
eling agents for the Omaha line, will bo
the two traveling agents under the con
solidation. C. E. Bockmann will serve aa
passenger and ticket agent, which is prac
tically the same position ho now holds.
J. B. Alexander, now stenographer and
freight and passenger agent for the
Omaha lines, will be the stenographer for
tho new office, with the same duties as
heretofore. C. R, 'fully will be the mes
senger, which position he now holds. H.
L. Slsler, now genoral agent of the Chi
cago, SL Paul, Minneapolis- & Omaha, will
be transferred to Seattle, where ho will
hold the position of assistant general agent
of the same road. The offices of the two
companies at Helena and Spokane will
also be merged and put under the control
of the Chicago, St Paul, Minneapolis &
Mr. Ritchie will remain in Portland for
several days superintending the changes
that are to be made, and will then go on
to Seattlo and the other cities where ho is
to consolidate the offices under the juris
diction of one or the other of the two
companies of the big Northwestern sys
tem. RETURN OF E. E. CALVIN.
Still Believed He Will Manage the
Southern Pacific Lines.
E. E. Calvin, general manager of tho
O. R. & N. Co. and the Southorn Pacific
lines in Oregon, returnod to his home
last night on tho delayed Southern Pa
cific train, after an extended visit In
Salt Lake City and California.
It has been persistently rumored that
Mr. Calvin Is slated to succeed Charlos
Markham as general manager of the
Southern Pacific, with headquarters at
San Francisco, but no confirmation of
the rumor can be secured. The recent
visit of Mr. Calvin to Sun Francisco and
his lengthy trip over the California
lines of tho Southern Pacific, however,
lead to the belief that the story Is cor
rect and that the Portland official will
soon leave this city for San Francisco
and the largor position.
HAVE SOME NEW PLAYS.
Multnomah Will Experiment on Seat,
tie in New Year's Game.
There was no practice last night, but
the team will be out in full force to
night for practice and will go through a
stiff lot of work.
Manager Watkins received a communi
cation from Seattle yesterday stating that
the Seattle team will be groatly strength
ened over the team that defeated- Mult
nomah there two weeks ago, and that
they expect to win by at least two touch
downs. From this it would seem that
Multnomah has Its work cut out.
Multnomah will have a few new plays
to to' on Seattle, and if they fail to work.
Coach Murphy will fall back upon
straight football, and he can bo depended
upon to discover any weak spot In Seat
tle's line and to pound away at It, when
it is once located. In spite or the' "bluo
and white's" great line, they will be op
posed by players worthy of their best ef
forts In Pratt, Stow, Ross, Seeley, Kel
ler, Jordan, Dowllng and StotL and will
find it hard to gain consistently through
these men. Chauncey Bishop has con
sented to act as referee and with "Count"
Villa as -umpire, tho spectators aro as
sured of a good, clean game. The game
will bo called at 2:20 P. M. and will be
over before dusk.
IN BRAWN DEPARTMENT..
Coaches for Rowing, Track and Base
ball Arranged For.
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, Seat
tle, Doc 30. (Special.) Graduate Man
ager Robert Evans, of the University of
Washington, has been hard at work dur
ing the present college vacation arranging
matters for the coming year. He will
take his office on the first day of January,
and will have charge of university affairs
during the remainder of the present colle
giate year and the first four months of
the coming year. While the matter of
coaches has not been definitely settled,
Evans feels that the athletes will be taken
care of by the very best of men. Jim
Knight will be the coach for rowing. Dr.
Roller of track athletics, and Professor
Thorpe will look after the baseball Inter
ests. Tho manager believes that this combi
nation will satisfy tho athlotes. Knight Is
practically the only man that could handle
rowing In Washington at this time. His
knowledge of conditions and his keen In
terest and enthusiasm for tho eport will
be needed to onablo tho University of
Washington to put out a crew able to
compote against the University of Califor
nia. While little, if anything, is known about
Dr. Roller's ability to take care of a
track team, he has a record In- the de
partment of athletics which speaks well
for his value as a coach. It Is expected
that he will develop Tom McDonald into
a Coast champion. With the hammer he
has made a number of records, and also
with the shot.
-Professor Thorpe made his reputation
as a baseball player while in the Univer
sity of .Illinois. He was on one of the
best nines that Illinois ever turned out.
The baseball' material at Washington this
year Is probably the best for the past
three yeare, and it is very likely that
Thorpe will turn out a winning aggrega

PENDLETON, Or.. Dec. 30. (Special.)
Perry Queenan and Barney Mullen, light
weight champion of the Northwest fought
a 10-round draw here tonight- The bout
was clever, and the men who had met
Gans, Walcott Rufo Turner and others of
tho top-notchers, gave an exhibition as
good as some of tho much-lauded bruising
matches of tho cities. There were several
hard blows- landed that laid the fighters
on the floor, Mullen taking the seven
Queenan exhibited the greater ability to
undergo punishment, and Mullen would
have won on points. This will probably

there is much objection from the religious

Victory for the Tigers.
The Tigers played their flnal game of
basketball with the I. B. C. team on the
Y. M. C. A. floor last night, and won
out by the score of 27 to 11. Although
the L B. C'b were clearly outclassed they
put up a scrappy gamd and fought hard
at all times to prevent the Tigers from
scoring. Of the 11 points secured by tho
I. B. C. nine came from throws on ac
count of fouls. For this team H. Gan
tcnbeln showed great skill at guard, and
handled his clever opponent Moore, In
good shape. Masters and Merritt were
the stars for the Tigers, most of the
points won being due to these players.
Following this game the Seals and the
Scrubs, both of the Y. M. C. A. tried con
clusions with the big- ball and baskets.
The principal feature to their match was
the friendly spirit In which one man
would let his opponent take the ball away
from him, and often It -was very much
of an Alphonse- and Gaston affair. Scores
were made so fast that np attempt was
made to keep a record of them.

CLEVELAND, Dec. 30. Bcrtlllon
measurements were taken of Mrs.
Chadwlck today by a Government Se
cret Service expert. The purpose of
the system Is the identification of crim
inals. Investigation discloses that
there are jio Bertlllon measures of
Mme. Dovere on record at the Ohio
Penitentiary. The system was In vogue
prior to her coming to the prison, but
it had been discontinued when she was
incarcerated. Since then the system
has been restored. The prison records
contain a very minute description of
Mme. Devere, however.
Dr. C. J. Aldrich, the alienist, again
called at the County Jail to see Mrs.
Chadwlck today, but upon instructions
Issued by United States Marshal Chand
ler he was refused admittance. Dr.
Aldrich stated that ho was making a
study of Mrs. Chadwlck upon the re
quest of her counsel, J. P. Dawley.
Several other matters developed in
the Chadwlck case today that seem to
indicate insanity as her almost certain
line of defense. It was learned that
Dr. H. C. Eyraan, superintendent of the
Massillon State Hospital for the Insane,
made an examination of the woman
last Tuesday. Dr. Eyman's visit was
kept secret at the time. He is one of
