Candidates Primary nominees.
One hundred Republican patriots in A.
O. I. W. hall, Sellins-Hlrsch building,
banished the word 'faction" from their
conference, resolved to put away old
scores and formed a league to which all
Hepubllcan. can gain admittance and
which should boost no particular man's
candidacy for any office, but all primary
nominees for the election.
For two and one-half hours the brethren
tasted harmony's sweet nectar, nor were
Their tongues once soured with discord's
vinegar. Both old-time factions were rep
resentedSimon and Mitchell and there
werf many irewcomon. unscarrcd by .the
factional wars of the last ten years. The
meeting was the largest and most smc
(oyrcful of tho "new deal," "reunion,"
"harmony"' gatherings that have marked
the effort to consolidate the party in
Multnomah County in the past twelve
month. The league is the product of the har
mony endeavor of the Portland Republi
can Club, of which F. E. Beach is presi
dent ami Charles K. Lockwood secretary.
S.me 320 men had been, invited 50 in the
county at large and three from each pre
4hc by a committee of 20 men, dele
gated by group of 40 lovefcasters at a
Commercial Club dinner some time ago,
who had been invited to the feed by the
Portland Republican Club.
Prominent Men Who Attended.

The league adopted a constitution and
elected oflktMs. including an executive
committee ,f 15 members, deferring un
til the next meeting the selection of SO
vice-presidents. The constitution was
drafted by a committee consisting of W.

One Contest Tor Office.
In the election of officers the only com
petitions were between Joy and Galvanl
for secretary, in which Joy received 37
votes against Galvani's 31, and between
ten men for membership on the execu
tive committee. The unsuccessful candi
dates for the committee were: T. 1
Evans, of Corbett's. 15 votes; W. R. Hud
son, of Bridal Veil. IS; O. F. Cooke, of
Sylvan. J8: James SherringhauEcn, of
Rockwood, 7. The vote for the successful
candidates was: Miller, 21; Hoffman. 31;
Corder, 24; H. C. Smith, 25; Cleveland, 20.
The ballot was taken late in thej session,
when many of the gathering had de
parted for home.
Dr. Plummer was elected president by
unanimous vote on motion of C. M. Idle
man. Dr. Plummer was not present, but
sent word that he wished the league to
succeed and believed it could accomplish
much to rcunfte the party. He has been
a member of the Simon element, but this
was not brought up when he was nom
inated for president.
When the conference opened. F. E.
Beach, chairman, explained the purposes
of the proposed league, saying that the
movement had sprung up of its own ac
cord, rather than from organized effort.
Nobody's candidacy was inspiring, it. Mr.
Beach studiously avoided the use of
words like "faction," Simon." "Mitchell,"
"knifing," and in closing remarked:
"I trust I have made myself clear with
out use of offensive terms."
Brethren Listen to Speeches.
Whereupon the brethren proceeded to
organize, on motion of C M. Idleman,
who proposed appointment of a committee
to draw up a constitution, the members
of which were appointed by Chairman
Beach. While the committee made It
self busy In an adjoining room, the breth
ren listened to speeches front O. F. Pax
ton. H. H. Northup, Allen R. Joy and
J J3. Wagers; J. M. Kecne, of Med ford,
candidate for Secretary of State, and "W.
J. Lachner. of Baker City, candidate for
Congress from the Second District.
Mn.Paxton said that the purpose of the
league was not to help any individual can
didate for nomination, but all party nom
inees -for election. "If your friend shall
toe nominated, instead of ray friend,' said
y ., ..... - ........ ........?

he. "I'm going to work for the election
of your friend."
Judge Northup called for nomination of
the .best Republicans, who he said would
surely lo elected. "I'm always ready to
follow the party when It puts up those
men." said he. "I stand for the privilege
of voting for those men for office who
represent the best Interests of the people.
The Republican party has always taught
the voter to be independent and to follow
the dictates of his conscience in casting
his baljot. This league, by declaring for
nomination of the best men, can do much
to unite the party."
J. E. Magers asserted that Republicans
had been too independent, else Democrats
would not be in possession of the highest
offices. Democrats, however, always
stuck together, and It was not difficult to
Dr. Keene promised to take to Jackstm
County the word that Multnomah Repub
licans were united.

IN ft LEGAL BATTLE
IX HAM) AND BINGHAM.
Each Congressional District Is Ex
pected to Brinp Out Candidates.
Each Congressional District in Oregon
is expected to bring out another Republi
can candidate within the next few days
John I-. Rand, of Baker City, who has
just returned to his home city from a
political survey in Portland, and I. H.
Bingham, of Eugene, whose boom of a
year ago' has been revived.
In the First DistricU S. B. Huston, ei
Hillsboro, and Walter L. Tooze. of Wood
burn, Iiavc been striving for the nomina
tion many months, and a short time ago
W. C. Hawley. of Salem, entered the
tight. Bingham's boom started last
Winter, when he sat in the lower House
of the Legislature. He was one of thu
conspicuously active men of the lower
House, an able debater, an ofllclont or
ganizer and a good lawsmlth. He and
Representative G. W. Griffin, of the same
county, worked together, and have a
strong following In Lane.
This following is trying to bring out
Bingham for Congress, and may nomi
nate Griffin for State Senator, to succeed
Dr. W. Kuykendall.
In the Second District W. R. Ellis, of
Pendleton, and W. J. Lachner. of Baker
City, have announced their candidacies.
Information from Baker City yesterday
made known that Rand's announcement
would bo forthcoming In a few days. Rand
is State Senator, and his legislative torm
will expire next June. He has been an
aspirant for the Judeship of the proposed
Eastern Oregon Federal District, and had
the district been created. Senator Fulton
would have endeavored to secure him
the appointment. Mr. Band in the Sena
torial election of 1903 was one of the
steadfast supporters of Mr, Fulton.
Baker County will now have two can-,
didatcs for Congress, and Lachner and
Rand will have a sharp fight When Rand
was in Portland last week looking over
the ground, Lachner was also.
J. P. Kavanaugh. of Portland, is being
boomed for the nomination, but has not
yet launched his candidacy.
DEMOCRATIC CLUB IN LINE.

Harriman anB Hill Lawyers
Cross Swords Before Court.
ARGUE PLEA IN ABATEMENT
Devote Entire Day to Citing; Prece
dents and Authorities Hear
ing on Mncjrly Cross
Lawyers representing the Harriman and
Hill railroad interests devoted an entire
day yesterday before Judge Frazer to an
argument for and against tho pica in
abatement filed by the O. R. Jt X. Co.. at
tacking the right of the Portland & Scat
tie Railroad to do business In the State
Attornej- Charles H. Carey made the
leading argument for the Hill road.
"The Portland & Seattle Railway Com
pany in good faith attempted to comply
with the act of IMS relating to foreign
corporations doing business in this state,"
he said, "and paid the license fee. and yet
counsel for the O. R. & X. Co.. because
of some alleged deficiency in the proceed
ings, desires the court to hokl all the
business transactions of the Portland &
Seattle Company tit this slate invalid.
"If a court of equity shoiiW so decide
and throw the Portland & Seattle Com
pany out of court. It would become worse
than a criminal court where it Itolds per
sons guilty of infractions that are not in
tended. Charges Dilatory Tactics.
"If the question is. who owns the land?
let us try out that issue. We nut up the
money first, and secured the deed, and
the O. -R. &. X. Co. is now pursuing dila
tory plans, and its attorneys making argu
ments of the niceties of the law. and tho
court is asked to pick up some technicality
.and throw us out of court. Enormous
business transactions hcrtp within the past
few months depend upon' Your Honor's
decision as to their legality."
Tho controversy began over the cross
ing at Macglcy Junction, both companies
asserting preference and a title to the
disputed ground. In its plea In abate
ment, the O. R. & X. Co. sets forth that
the Portland & Seattle Company is not
entitled to do business in Oregon, be
cause Its copy of Its articles of incorpora
tion Hied with the Secretary of State at
Salqtn do not contain the corporate seal
of the company, and also that J. Couch
Flanders "was appointed attorney-in-fact
of the Portland & Seattle Company, a
Washington corporation, at a meeting
held In Portland, October 10. 1903. and that
a meeting of the board of directors of a
Washington corporation In Portland was
not legal, and that the board of directors
had not previously adopted a resolution
authorizing the meeting.
Numerous other legal points -were raised
and argued at length by W. W. Cotton
and Arthur C Spencer, attorneys for the
O. R. & X. Co.
Harriman Pica Frivolous.
Mr. Carey responded yesterday in a Aig
orous manner, devoting several hours"
time to his speech and the reading of au
thorities. He asserted that It was not
necessary for the Portland & Seattle
Company to have held any meeting at all
in Portland to appoint Mr. Flanders attorney-in-fact.
Charles M. Levey, presi
dent of the company, bad authority to ap
point Mr. Flanders as agent, performing
no corporate duty in so doing. It was the
same as If he appointed an attorney for
the company or a right-of-way agent. Mr.
i Levey was intrusted with broad powers:
lie was the holder of nearly all of the
stock, representing nearly all of the cap
ital stock thai went into the corporation.
Mr. Carey contended that the act of
1f3 regarding foreign corporations doing
business In this state wkj merely a regu
lalioii. The purpose was to make mat
ters of record who were the board of
directors of the corporation, the objects
and -amount of'canltal stock, and the II
cense fee Imposed was nominal. It was
not the intention of the law. because of
some- slight deficiency in its compliance
or Irregularity, to have a court enforce
a drastic remedy against it.
Tells Why Law Was Passed.
He told how foreign corporations in the
past did business in this state without
having an authorized agent here, and
had to Ik? chased all over the country to
get service upon It In one matter or an
other. The act of 13JS. he satd. was a
remedial statute to prevent this. Mr.
Carey also called attention to the fact
that the Secretary of State in Oregon
had issued a certificate to the Portland &
Seattle Company, which was prima facie
evidence of its right to transact business
in this state.
James M. Kerr also made an argument
in favor of the Portland & Seattle Com
pany, and read numerous authorities.
When court convened 'yesterdav mora
ing Mr. Carey agreed to let copies of the
record of the Portland & Seattle Com
pany, contained In the minute-book, be
Introduced in evidence, excluding the con
struction contract. This was satisfactory
to Mr. Cotton.
The plea will probably bo submitted to
the court today.

Northern Pacific Officials Say
Their Construction Work
ANNOYED AT THE OBSTACLE
3Icn Connected With Hill Interests
Are Outspoken In Expressing
Wonder Whether Portland
Wants North-Bank lload.
Northern Pacific officiate are - growing
more and more restive under the delay
in granting to the Portland & Seattle
Company the right to construct Its bridge
across the Willamette River below Swan
Island at St. Johns. This delay, accord
ing to the statements and virtual com
plaint of C M. Levey. -Is hindering and
retarding the construction work and plans
of the Hill Interests, and will prevent the
completion of the line in anything like
the time set apart for the driving of the
last spike on the north-bank road.
These officials are beginning to wonder
whether the City of Portland wishes the
Portland & Seattle to enter the city by
the most direct and practical route, or
whether It Is the desire to force the adop
tion of a more round-about and expensive
"It Is a matter of great mystery to the
Xorthern Pacific why the decision is not
given at once, unless there is some great
power back of the hindrance. ' Is the way
A. D. Charlton, assistant general passen
ger agent of the Northern Pacific, states
And other Xorthern Pacific officials dis
cuss the question In a. broader and clearer
way. They do not. when not talking for
publication, attempt to disguise the an
noyance felt by those Interested in the
speedy construction of the line, and are
outspoken in their chagrin.
"Xo one," they say. "has come forward
to oppose the plan for the construction of
the Swan Island bridge unless It Is some
one backed and egged on by the O. R. &
X. or kindred influences. The plans as
shown by Ralph Modjcski demonstrate
that this is the best place yet found ror
the construction of the bridge. There is
no objection legitimately found that can
be used as a good argument against the
bridge. Xo one except the O. R." & X.
pilots has made any great effort to pre
vent tho permission being granted."
Then the talk will change from what
Is to what may be. and the characteristics
of J. J. Hill come into the limelight.
When Mr. Hill makes up his mind to
do a thing it Is hard to change it." they
saw "The Xorthern Pacific does not
have to build two bridges, one across the
Columbia and the other across the Wil
lamette, and construct the Vancouver-
Portland line at a cost of more than ?7.-
OMX0O to get Into Portland. There is an
entrance already by way of Kalama."
And the talk will drift to what could be
done if the company is not allowed to
build the bridge.
Mr. Hill's Alternative.
"Ishould think." the officials contend.
"thatlt tvmilf b reallv cheaDer for Mr.
Hill to build freight and grain warehouses
at Vancouver, construct one new rcrry
boat If necessary, and continue to enter
Portland over the old rounuaoout route
"??Avntv-fiv xvr cent of the earnings
of a road are brought by the freight
business." It Is argued, "anti tne tnrougn
line Into Portland will make of necea?ity
but Httl difference to the freight busl-
iimc nr in ihr- nncsencer business. Most
of the passengers from the East wish to
come by way of beanie ana tacoma. it
Is not the passenger end of the road, but
thi frnicht end. that Is causing the ex
pensive line across the peninsula to be
"It cpms to mr that It would be easier
tn load yhlns and to send them out across
the bar laden wjth the wheat of the In

had to hi towed to Portland through
tnanr draw hrldre and shallow channels.
Why. then. Is It necessary for the Xorth
rn Tarn tn rfet.iv about comlnsr into
Portland? It Is already In Portland. It
needs no terminals and no bridge unless
It brings Its freight here. The passenger
traffic can be handled across the ferry as
ot nrvnt. It i the frcizht traffic that
the bridge will bear, and the freight busi
ness can stop afancouver cneaper man

Thic u the wav the Xorthern Pacific
people talk, and though they make It
clear that they nave no oniciai grouno

they have outlined the logical status of
the situation, and they hint that the
longer the delay the greater is tneir in

Portland and the main line ot tne roau
and the terminal Is concerned.
FHOM WARRENTON TO SEASIDE
Astoria & Columbia River Railroad
to Relay Track With Heavier Steel.
Work has been begun by the Astoria
& Columbia River Railroad in relaying
the track from Warrenton to Seaside
with 75-pound rails, making- the track
uniform with the remainder ot tne
road. Ralls arc belns delivered along
the road between Warrenton and the
beach and workmen are lifting- the old
60-pound rails and replacing them with
the heavier steel. The change in rails
will require 300 tons of new steel. The
old rails will be utilized by the road in
building sidings alonff the line wher
When the Astoria & Columbia River
Railroad was built it absorbed the old
Astoria Jfe Seacoast line, which had a
length of only three miles and extended
from Astoria to the Coast, This was
laid with the 60-pound rails which have
been In use since the line was turned
over to the new road. In view of the
probable heavy traffic of the next Sum
mer. the company decided to relay this
portion of Its track with heavier rails,
which will carry any traffic that may
be placed upon them.
The locomotives operated by the road
have just been equipped with oil-burn
Ing- apparatus, saving: about 50 per
cent of fuel charges and making- ideal
motive power for Summer excursion
trains, as the new fuel Is entirely free
from the smoke and gases generated
by coal or wood.
One Way Out of a Difficulty.
PORTLAND, Jan. 2I.-(To the' Edi
tor.) Regarding the proposed bridge to
be built by the Northern Pacific at Swan
Island, 1 suggest arrangements be made
with the railroad company that the
draw of the bridge remain open and to
be closed only to allow the trains to
cross over it. This will. I think, do away
with many of the objections raised by
the pilots. G. A. C.
