KAY MEN AROUSED
Indignant at Letter Received
From Frank Baker.
URGED TO SUPPORT A. L MILLS
Chairman of the Republican State
Central Committee Urges Friends
of Salem Candidate to Swing
to Portland Man.
SALEM, Or.. Jan. 1. (Special.) Frank
C. Baker, chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee, has aroused
the Indignation of the friends of T. B.
Kay la the Oregon House of Represen
tatives by trying to pull Kay's friends
away from him and gain their support for
A. L. Mills, the Multnomah County can
didate for the Speakership. The friends
of Kay do not break loose as easily as
expected, but have sent Baker's letters
to their favorite candidate, with an ex
pression of their opinion of that kind of
Their opinions are not at all compli
mentary to Baker and show beyond ques
tion that Kay's friends are loyal. Here
Ik a letter that one of Kay's supporters
received from 2dr. Baker, written on the
letter-heads- of the Republican State Cea
Portland. Or.. Dec 30. 1004. My Dear
Mr : Considering It within the scope
of my office as chairman of the Republican
Slat Centra! Committee to make suece
t oni that will conduce to the best Interest
of our party. 1 respectfully Invite you to
support Mr. A. U Mllli for Speaker of the
House of Representatives. Mr. Mdlls Is ac
counted the leading citizen of Oregon In a
commercial sense, and for this and other
Rood and sufficient reasons I have reached
the conclusion that Darty harmony will be
best subserved by his election.
Bespeaking a conscientious and satisfactory
administration of the important trust re
posed in you and boplns fortune will smile
on you and yours durinc the comlm; year. I
bee to remain, sir. with perfect respect,
your obedient servant,
FRANK C BAKER.
The member who received this partlc
ular letter immediately forwarded It to
Representative Kay with these words
written at the bottom of It:
"What do you think of this? 1 will write
and tell this fellow to attend to his own
Some of Kay's friends who were writ
ten to by Baker say they were sent or
offered transportation with which to visit
Portland and consult with the Mills peo
ple. Kay's friends here who have learned of
the latest move are Incensed at the ac
tion Baker has taken. They say that
Baker was elected chairman to represent
the whole Republican party and not the
party in one county. They assert that It
is his province .to lead in a fight against
Democrats and not participate In con
tests within the parti'. Kay's support
ers aver that their favorite has never
been prominent In any factional fight;
that he has always been a loyal .Repub
lican, and that there Is no reason why
the head of the Republican party should
co out of his way to fight him.
One of the leaders of the Kuykendall
Mllls movement was yesterday, quoted as
saying regarding the Speakership con
test: "The fellows who want appropriations
and other things from the Legislature
have got to stand In."
This has also made the Kay men In
dignant, for they take this as meaning
that unless the outside counties support
Mills the Multnomah delegation will vote
against appropriations as well as legis
lation wanted by other parts of the state.
"We have not considered this a fight
between Multnomah County and the rest
of the state," said a supporter of Kay
this afternoon. "We do not like that
kind of a contest. We .believe that every
appropriation and every other measure
should stand or fall upon its own merits
and not according to the way some mem
ber of the Legislature -may have voted In
the Republican caucus on organization.
"We do not believe that Representative
Mills would indorse any such course as
suggested by the quotation, for he Is rec
ognized as a man 'of honor and Integrity
and would not stoop to make legislation
depend upon his success.
"If ilr. Kay should be elected Speaker
he win aid in tne passage of reasonable,
appropriations for the support of all pub
lic Institutions and the state government
generally, but would not give his support
to vicious legislation in exchange for sup
port for the Speakership."
CARTER MAY GO TO CONGRESS
Montana Republicans Have Majority
Over All Opposition.
HELENA. Mont.. Jan. L Special.)
The most absorbing, topic being discussed
tonight as the result of the assembling
tomorrow of the Ninth Lecisiatlw As
sembly is the .probable successor to Paris
uiDsoo, democrat, .x-isavonax Commit
teeman Thomas H. Carter, of Helena, re
ceives more favorable mention than any
one else and his partisans assert that
when the Senatorial caucus Is held oa
January 5 he will receive a practically
unanimous vote. His candidacy Is vig
orously opposed by the Helnze element,
but as the Republicans have a majority
of six in the Senate and two in the
House over both the Democrats and
Helnze fuslonlsts. it is a foregone con
clusion that a Republican will be chosen.
At the Senate caucus last night the
Carter men effected without opposition
the election of their slate, and a similar
result obtained at the House caucus to
night. In consequence of these "straws"
and the further fact that Mr. Carter was
made the Issue of the last campaign In
Montana. It Is highly probable that he
will resume his former seat In the upper
branch of Congress March next.

Is to attend the new bill at the Star
Theater which opens today. It I3 headed
