Republican Chiefs Differ as to
Methods, but All Desire
LEGION OF PEACE ENVOYS
Factional Strife That Has Divided
Hanks Must Be Eliminated, All
Agree, or Result Next Year
3Iay Be Disastrous.
How to cement together the factional
clang of the Republican party In Oregon
so as to put downGovernor Chamberlain,
Democrat, and exalt a Republican to his
place is a problem full of toll and trouble
for leaders of the party. And becauee the
chief? fear that the direct primary law
will toar the factions etlll wider asunder
by conferring on big counties, such as
Multnomah and Marlon, dictatorial pow
ers In the nominating primaries, thus
driving jealous small counties to bolt in
the election, and by exciting defeated
primary candidates to the revenge knife,
sharper, perhaps, than that which laid
low the Republican candidate for Gov
ernor, W. J. Furnish, three years ago,
and lifted up George E. Chamberlain,
Democrat, against a normal Republican
plurality of 20,000 votes, the chiefs say
one and all that the prospect is far from
"looking good" to them.
"Get together," they cry, as they look
back and behold the fate of thenr" that
were mowed down before Governor
George Chamberlain three years ago, and
Multnomah Prosecuting Attorney John
Manning and Sheriff Tom Word last
year, and Mayor Lane two months ago,
and Circuit Judges Galloway. Hamilton
and Bradshaw last year, all of the afore
said being Democrats, while their Repub
lican opponents have gone to helr politi
That Is very easy to ay; In fact, it has
been said many years by members of the
Simon camp and of the Mitchell and now
of the Fulton contingent. They all agree
that the party will go to destruction if
the dissensions that have torn it cannot
be pacified. They all agree that some
thing ought to be done to bring dis
cordant elements into brotherly unity,
but the only man who has thus far come
forward with a plan for that ond is Sen
ator Fulton, and though many Republi
cans regard it as a practical solution, a
large number of them say It is imprac
ticable at this time, and will continue
to be so until the direct primary system
shall have proved its failure.
Disagree on Plan for Harmony.
Consequently, even on the plan of "get
ting together." the Republican brethren
are at variance and are fighting one an
other's views as In time past they have
fought one another's candidates.
But party leaders ay they arc more
hopeful of "getting together" now that
the Mitchell faction has "got even" on
the Simon faction and the Simon faction
on the Mitchell than evor before in the
recent history of things political. They
have hopes that all the bolters will bo
forgiven and received back as erring chil
dren Into the bosom of the party. Still,
they do not think that the men who have
led any of the bolts can safely be put on
the ticket just now lest the spirit of the
new-born Cain deal death among the
First of the leaders for harmony is
Senator Fulton, who has declared time
and .again that he and his friends are
ready to go their share of the Jdistance
nnd more, to sprinkle salt on the tall of
the dove of poace. T. T. Geer. ex-Governor
and tall timber of Waldo's hills,
though hitherto dwelling outside the Ful
ton regions, said what came to the same
thing, when in Portland last week. Quoth
he, after again asseverating that he
was no miscellaneous candidate: '
"Lot bygones be bygones."
Many Advocates of Unity.
Another of the peace envoys is Frank
C. Baker, chairman of the State Central
Committee, who demands neither indem
nity nor cession of territory. Even W. J.
Furnish, victim of bolters in the contest
for Governor in 1902, Is willing to call
off the dogs of war if the men who have
been In the habit of bolting heretofore
will keep hands off hereafter or until the
new spirit of harmony shall have waxed
strong. George S. Wright, of McMInn
vllle. State Senator, while viewing the
charms of the Fair this Summer, has said
that all his prayers are for a lasting
peace. Stephen A. Lowell, of Pendleton,
whom the Furnish clement credits with
responsibility for Furnlsh's defeat, wishes
that the brethren henceforward shall love
one another. J. W. Scrlber, of La Grande,
says he would like to see the tomahawk
burled forever. And many other big men
of the party have expressed themselves
in the same vein, on their visits to Port
land, such as W. I. Vawter and J. M.
Keone, of Medford; Henry Ankeny and
S. H. Friendly, of Eugene; C. A. Johns, of
Baker City; Malcolm A. Moody, of The
Dalles: J. W. McCulloch. of Malheur
County; E. W. Haines, State Senator for
Washington County; State Representa
tive J. N. Burgess, of Bake Oven, Wasco
County: N. Whealdon, of The Dalles.

Governorship Is Coveted Place.
The nominating primaries will be hold
next April, for the election In the ensu
ing June of an almost complete new set
of state officers. Conventions for nomina
tion of party candidates have been abol
ished in Oregon, by enactment of the di
rect primary law three years ago and
henceforth party nominees are to bo
chosen by popular vote of party mem
The Governorship is not the only ob
ject of concern, though on account of Its
now being held by a strong Democrat,
Republican leaders are more anxious for
it than for any other. It is the first
office of the state, but there are others
of high Importance, which Democrats
wish for mightily, such as thons of Secre
tary of State, State Treasurer, State
Printer. State Superintendent of Public
Instruction, one Justice of the Supreme
Court, several Judges of the Circuit
Court and two Representatives in Con
gress, all offices now held by Republicans.
Multnomah's political power is about
one-fourth that of the entire state.
Judged by this county's share of the
state registered vote. This strong force
exercised in the nominating primaries
might monopolize so many nominations
as to incite "cow" counties to bolt the
Republican nominees. The "cow" coun
ties are always more or less jealous of
Multnomah s political and commercial
prestige and Democrats would not miss
any opportunity of stirring up a re
volt among tnem. jvna Kepubllcans co
so. far as to say that Democrats would
invade the Republican primaries for the
very purpose of nominating Republican
. candidates for slaughter in the election.
Just as numbers of them contributed to
the rcnominatlon of Mayor Williams la
Portland last May, who was nominated
by 1000 plurality primary votes and de
feated by 1200 plurality elecuoir-votcs.

Senator Fulton has advised a convention

distributing the nominations over the
state and balancing one section or tnc
commonwealth with another. But now
this can be done, if it is to be done at
all, only by the party voters themselves,
and the danger that it will not be done,
TtfmiihHmna rimrd as lmnendlntT. The
result they fear will be that counties
like Multnomah and Marlon will got more
nominations than other counties uunc
thsv cVinuM have because the vote of
big counties will be concentrated on one
or more men while the vote of small
counties will not avail against It. But
defenders of the new system declare that
the big counties will have so many candl-
rates for a given nomination that its
vote will be split up to correspond with
Its voting strengtn; tnereny giving siaa.ii
counties a fair chance.
Convention Idea Xot Popular.
It is not too much to say that most
of the Republican leaders dislike the
direct primary law, think it will fail
and expect to discard it after it shall
have worn Itself out. This does not
mean, however, that they desire to
have the primary law ignored, by the
holding of a nominating or "recom
mending" convention. They prefer the
convention, but they see that it would
not be popular at this time, bofore
their expectation as to its failure shall
have been realized. The demonstration
of failure that they expect to see is the
nomination of a poor ticket, the defeat
of Republican nominees in elections
and the upbuilding of Democratic pow
er. Men holding high and low offices
in the gift of the poople are of this
mind and in private conversation they
give It voice.
The direct primary law is the focus
of all attention in political circles, Re
publican and Democratic, just now. It
bears on every man's political fortunos.
Introducing a new nominating system.
it requires in turn a new system for
control of nominations. A new politi
cal regime is opening in Oregon; all
persons see it. The retirement of Sen
ator Mitchell from leadership leaves a
place for somebody else. It is natural
for Senator Fulton to look toward that
chieftainship for himrelf and as might
be expected, he in making his way to
ward It. The appointment of R- S.
Bean for district Judge to succeed the
late C. B. Bellinger is taken by Sen
ator Fulton's friends as a sign to the
multitude that Senator Fulton Is to
make distribution of Federal appoint
ments horoaftcr, just as Senator Mitch
ell has done hitherto. Bean was one
of the first men recommended for ap
pointment by Senator Fulton.
And not only Federal appointments
are to be at the disposal of Senator
Fulton and his friends, but the Senator
ship which John H. Mitchell will va
cate after the end of his present term.
Fifteen state Senators will be elected
next June who will participate in the
election of the next United States Sen
ator in 1907 and in tho election of Sen
ator Fulton's successor in 1909. It is
obvious therefore that Senator Fulton's
influence will be working' in the pri
maries and the election next Spring.
Can Senator Fulton Effect Cure?
Now the question seems to be, can
Sonator Fulton and his following mol
lify the party and cure it of factional
ism. It is to be remembered that Sen
ator Fulton's political contingent has
been identified with that of Senator
Mitchell, which has been bitterly fought
many years by an opposing: faction.
The problem Is not an easy one for
Sonator Fulton to solve and he knows
it. Yet he has set himself to the task.
It remains to be seen whether the ele
ments which the Senator would pacify
arc ready to enlist themselves under
the banner that moans Fulton for re
election to the United States Senate
and Fulton for the head and front of
the party in Oregon. In days gone by.
the necosslty of party unity was ob
vious to the factions just as now, only
the one would not give up Its existence
to yield Itself to the other.

There was a noticeable decrease In Sun
day travel oh the river yosterday, and
various causes are ascribed for this con
dition of things. Some of the boatown
ers insist that the drowning incident of
last week, in which a launch ran down
a row boat and two young persons lost
their lives, together with the newspaper
notoriety attached thereto, put the kibosh
on the business, while others claim that
the decline In traffic is the net result
of so many pleasure-loving people being
out of town for the Summer, At all events
the boathouses are not making the money
they did earlier in the season, one of the
most prominent ownors stating yester
day that his receipts for the day would
foot up less than $100, as against from
530) to $330 earlier In the season.
"The boating business has gone to the
bow-wows all right," he gloomily re
marked, "unless people get over their
scare about the river being so dangerous.
It is a great deal safer than carllnes,
because only last night the trolley wire
on a "U" car broke and blocked the
whole system nearly an hour, while if
anybody had come In contact with the
live wire that was sizzing around on the
ground. It would have put him out of
commission In a hurry. The public does
not seem to realize this view of the sit
uation, and this sort of thing has oc
curred at frequent Intervals lately. I
have been around the waterfront in dif
ferent parte of the country all my life,
and have yet to see the first launch tip
' "Councilman Rushlight is merely play
ing to the galleries when he seeks to
secure the passage of an ordinance mak
ing provision with reference to the char
acter of lifc-prcservcrs to' be carried on
river craft, because, if he knows any
thing at all about law, he ought to real
ize that neither the city or state gov
ernment has any Jurisdiction whatsoever
over navigable streams. That comes
clearly within the purview of the Federal
authorities, and any action by the muni
cipality Is unconstitutional. The measure
is unjust, also, because It makes dis
criminations between private launches
and those carrying1 passengers for hire.
It is to our Interests to safeguard the
public as much as possible, and the real
danger, if any, comes from the owners
of private launches who ha-e noth
ing to lose by any public calamity, while
we all know that it is a blow that strikes
at the most vital part of our Industry.
"Still, we would not object to the pro
posed ordinance If it did not Impose con
ditions so onerous that it. would be im
possible to comply with them, as, for In
stance, it provides that we shall carry
the same kind of life-preservers as those
required by the government of the United
States, which were adopted for rough
sea-going purposes, and are not necessary
on the quiet waters of the river. Be
sides, they are not only very expensive.
but fully double the size necessary. andJ
IKKU Up IUU IlJUVfl IUVIU Ill tv.v. liut,
boats of more than IE tons burden are
required to carry at least two life buoys
besides the life-preservers, and the whole
thing is an absurdity. The Idea of our
being compelled to carry one of those
big life-preservers for each passenger!
Why. there would not be any room for
anything else, and Rushlight is talking
through his hat when he Introduces any
such measure. There might be some sense
to the Idea, without .considering its un
constitutional features, if he would pro
vide for one government life-preserver
for even' two passengers, or something
along those lines, but otherwise the whole
thing is preposterous."
SOME SPEEDY RIVER BOATS
Various Types of AVater Craft May
Considerable interest attaches to the
question as to whether the Spencer or
the Telephone or Telegraph are the speed
iest of the river steamors, and it Is prob
able a lot of money will change hands
when either one of the latter two vessels
hook up with the Spencer for a race.
The Telegraph goes to Astoria next Tues
day after the Elks, and It is reported that
she intends to try for the record on each
trip, going and coming. The Telephone
is moored across the river, just below the
Morrison-street bridge, and her beautiful
linos have attracted a great deal of at
tention recently. The Telegraph Is still
on the ways, but expects to bo In read
iness for her run down the river some
time today. The Portland shipyard Is
putting her in shape to ply between As
toria and the Cascade Locks.
Much speculation is centered also in the
relative speed of some of the fastjaunches
on the river, it being claimed tnat tne
Gale, a now boat Just out from New
York, can show a clearr-palr of heels to
the hitherto Invincible Defender. The
Favorite boathouse, which owns the lat
ter, are somewhat dubious on the propo
sition, and to clothe the matter with even
greater mystery, nobody along the water
front seems to know much about the
Gale, or to whom she belongs, except
that she has an eastern record, and
skims over the waters like a ghost.

Is Portland to Become Great?
PORTLAND, Aug. 13. (To the Editor.)
A visitor in Portland tells me that
Portland can never become really great
until it gets cheaper fuel. He asks me
why coal mined in Washington, with
freight rate of $1.40 a ton, costs about CT
a ton In this city? The coal should not
cost more than 51 at the mine. Who
gets the difference between $2.40 and the
$7? Have our first families a rake-off on
1 agree with our visitor that if we are
to have manufacturing to help make
Portland great, there must be a revolu
tlon in the fuel business. Our Chamber
of Commerce Is supposed to be an ag
gressive institution, and it Is, In certain
lines. Why does it not take hold of this
fuel question? Can it be that some of the
leading members of the Chamber are In
terested in the fuel trust or whatever
form of a steal it is that is taking enor
mous profits and in some way keeping
down competition? INQUIRER.
