BOTH GOOD HATERS
Open War Between Two
THEY EACH CHARGE BAD FAITH
Foster's Fury at His Defeat Aggra
vated by Failure to Get Desired
Appointments Is Also En
raged With Cushman.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Feb. 16. Since the defeat of Sen
ator Foster at Olympla an intense hatred
has developed between the two Senators
from Washington, which makes the old
Mitchell-Elmon feeling In Oregon pale Into
Insignificance. The sudden and extreme
change In the relations between the two
Senators from "Washington has been a
surprise, even to those who Tcnow' them
best. Up to the time Foster went home
to manage his own fight he and Ankeny
were on the most cordial terms; they
worked together splendidly and had no
differences to speak of. Since then they j
hav worked at cross-purposes, but in i
doing so have shown more feeling than j
was ever exhibited by the rival Oregon
Senators In the last Congress. Mitchell
and Simon worked at cross-purposes; one
took advantage of the other when he
could; they did not associate, but with it
all they suppressed their personal Ill
feeling; they did not openly clash.
What They Say of Each Other.
But where serenity reigned In the
"Washington delegation up to a month
ago all Is now warlike, the air Is blue,
the confusion is great. Foster accuses
his colleague of hostility in that he did
not support him before the Legislature.
Ankeny replies that he was under no ob
ligations and Is not culpable, In that he
kept hands off and aided no candidate.
On the other hand, Ankeny charges that
his colleague betrayed him In that he, on
his return to Washington, secured the
appointment of a Surveyor-General un
ripr conditions base and underhand. Fos
ter Ignores the agreement, and says he
acted entirely within his right as a Sen
ator. Foster charges his colleague with
attempting to hold up the nomination of
the Seattle Postmaster In the Interest of
the Senator-elect, and not because of any
personal Interest. Ankeny points to the
fact-that he always opposed Stewart, and
was entirely consistent in his opposition,
though he does admit that Piles ought to
have been consulted. Ankeny's friends
intimate that Foster sold out at Olj mpla
In the hope of getting two votes from
Clark County, and give his failure to get
them as his reason for withdrawing his
opposition to the confirmation of Crowley
as Postmaster at "Vancouver. Foster of
fers no explanation of his change of baso
on that matter. Again, Foster is sore
because ho has been denied the right to
name the Postmaster at Tacoma, but this
is one thing he does not charge against
Ankeny, but against Cushman.
Don't Speak as They Pass.
Aide from a conference held on the
first day after Foster's return to Wash
ington, the Washington Senators have
largely ignored each other. Though their
committee rooms adjoin, they do not ex
change visits; though their seats in the
Senate are close together, they do not
chat as of yore. Foster goes direct from
his committee-room to the Senate cham
ber, and he goes alone. Ankeny does
likcfvlse. There Is no more arm-in-arm
business about it; no more of the '"smile
that won't come off" In Foster's neigh
borhood. He is a serious man now.
Foster has exhibited far more temper
than his colleague; ho is the man who
reports to violent language, who rants
and roars and makes the air blue. But
hp is excusable to some extent because
lie Is suffering from gout, which he con
tracted while making his fight for the
Senatorshlp. Gout has made many an
other man ill-tempered; it has had its ef
fect on Foster. Nevertheless, the gout
in not altogether responsible for Foster's
change of spirits; his troubles are mani
fold. Foster Vicious, at Cushman.
While Foster is sore at Ankeny, he is
equally vicious toward Representative
Cushman. There was one appointment
that Foster coveted above all others tho
Postmaster at Tacoma. It was Cushman
who stepped between him and that ap
pointment, and who showed the Presi
dent why Foster should not fill that place.
Cushman told the President how Foster
had played politics with Dr. L-ecrone,
and how he intended to pay a debt by
appointing Lecrono Postmaster. Cush
man knew the President; he knew the
President would not allow any Federal
office to be juggled around In that way.
That was where Cushman made a master-stroke.
Foster literally raved when
Cushman assumed to take a hand In the
Tacoma Postmastershlp fight; ho grew
moro angry and more excited than at any
time In his entire Senatorial career. Cush
man remained calm, made his statement
of the case, and trie President did the
Between Cushman and Ankeny Foster
Is putting in some very uncomfortable
days closing his business in Washington.
While he is somewhat placated by differ
ent victories, he is not hilarious, for he
has lost that which he most desired.
Cushman a Fifth Wheel.
If Cushman and Ankeny could combine
they would be able to accomplish even
more than they have accomplished so far,
but there is hardly more love between
Cushman and Ankeny than there is be
tween Cushman and Foster. Tn tli nra

has not only had the. otfrt

further and has the effect of tt-

as a majority of the House would like
to have. There was no especial reason

As long as the House ties Itself u
so that It cannot amend a measure o
anv kind and leaves the nninai ,rta
cussion and amendment to. the Senate,
making It -impossible .in thev House' to
perfect legislation and leaving It to
the Senators to see that legislatlbn Is
perfected, so long will the House con
tinue in a secondary position to the
Senate and Its power will be curtailed.
The power of the Speaker and the
committee on rules is greater than
ever, and these three men are probably
equal In Importance -to a coterie of Sen
ators who decide to tmic a measure to
death. But the individuality of .mem
bers disappears, especially when they
are allowed to vote only on one propo
sition and cannot amend- that proposi
tion In any way.
It was a good thing to stop filibuster
ing:. In the 50th Congress, the last
Congress under the control of Speaker
Carlisle, the House was tied -up for two
or three weeks by the filibustering tac
tics which had been adopted by a
minority to prevent the passage of ,som
bill favored by the majority. Speaker
Reed and the Republican majority in
the 51st Congress no doubt did a wiso
thing when tliey provided for tho
counting of a quorum, for limiting da
bate and for bringing fhe House to -a
vote on any proposition that was be
fore It. But when that majority, which
has been followed by Democratic ma
jorities in two successive Congresses,
provided that the committee on rules
should have full power to bring In a
rule and refuse amendment to any
measure. It reached a position whorn
It stifled the House, and the individual

MANY TEARS A RESIDENT OF
The ZAte Fre T. Hfcjfleld.
FARMTNGTON. Wash., Feb. 36.
(Special.) Fred T. Bayfield, many
years a resident of Lane County, Ore
gon, departed from this lifo February
13. at Farmington, Wash., where he
has resided for the past 13 years. He
left a wife, two sons and one daughter
to mourn the loss. The deceased came
to California In 1852. during: the mining:
excitement, and had resided on the Pa
cific Coast ever nince. He was 75
years of age.
and opposed by the majority under
these restricted conditions are better
than nothing at all. but there ought
not to be any question about allowing
amendments, and men ought not to be
afraid to vote on amendments if they
are not proper and do not meet the re
quirements of the legislation proposed.
lsven Hepburn of Iowa, a man of larse
experience in the House, has, at the
caucus preceding the meeting of each
Congress, warned the Republicans that
they wore tying their hands by adopt
Ing the rules, yet the majority goes
ahead and adopts them. It is useless
for the members of the House to com
plain that the are nonentities and can
merely be totaled up to carry bills
which the committee on rules approves
as long as they provide that all amend
ment, together with all debate, can
be shut off at any time when a major
lty of the House sustains the commit
tee on rules.
The argument of the men who sup
port these rules is that the House has
In its control, and can at any time vote
down, a rule proposed by the commit
tee, but everybody knows the power of
tho Speaker, and everybody realizes
that a man of the majority party would
be foolish to fight the majority on any
particular proposition. It is very sel
dom that a report of the committee on
rules falls to secure nearly every vote
of the majority party.

According to the various reports that
are received from the various homes-of
the teams in the Pacific Coast League.
Pete Lohman and Jim Morley arc the
only two managers who have not as yet
completed their teams. The Oakland
manager seems to be having tho time of
his life in getting together the ball-toss-ers
that will battle for the rag of 1903.
Lohman and Cal Ewing seem to be
stricken with the disease of being "penny
wise and pound foolish."
So far. the Commuter manager has only
two of his old men signed up Kruger and
'Smiling" Schmidt. Kruger he managed
to hold from last year. He has made
one good stroke in signing Harry V ni

terday. Schmidt holds a two-year con
tract with the Oaklanders. Schmidt was
foxy enough to get this long-term con
tract last yc r, and when "Grandma"
Lobmap came along with his pruning-

All the rest of the players felt the keen

They arc saying harsh things about Loh

policy. Another thing which has made
the players slow in re-slgnlng with Oak

the Spring training will be done at Oak
land. Idora Park Is on a par with Rec
reation Park In San Francisco. Last
year Harris tried the scheme of training
at San Francisco, and he paid the pen

not have a live player on the team. Loh
