NAME FULL TICKET
Opponents of Simon Will Try to
Unite on Some Man to
Sun for Mayor.
WILL CALL MASS MEETING
Candidates for Other Municipal Of
fices, It Is Expected, Will Be
Nominated at Same Time.'
Several Names Suggested.
Humor has it' that before the pending
municipal campaign makes much prog
ress antl-9imon forces will call a mass-
meeting to select a complete independent
city ticket. Opponents of Simon profess
not to have heard of such a programme,
but admit that no efforts will be spared
to bring the opposing forcre together- in
the Interest of one candidate on whom
their strength can be concentrated. In
considering such a plan the anti-Simon
Republicans ' are not figuring on making
any alliances with . Judge .Munly, the
Democratic nominee. They allege that
Munly isMn the race In the interest of
Simon, and for that reason say they will
tight shy of any combination with him."
In connection with such a mass meeting
W. B. Ayer and State Senator H. K.
Albee are being, suggested .as the most
probable men to be considered as Mayor
alty timber. At the same time there Is
sortie talk of bringing State Senator C. W.
Nottingham out as the man who has had
some experience as an independent lcan
didate. Some of the dissatisfied Republicans,
however, do not warm up to the proposal
of a mass meeting. They are fearful that
If such a gathering should be held friends
of Simon would pack It and control the
proceedings. Another objection urged
from the same source to any public meet
ing of the kind ls the fact that before
such' an assembly is held the first essen
tial Is to determine that the rival as
pirants for the Mayoralty from among
the anti-Simon forces will stand by the
choice of such a gathering-.
It also was reported in connection with
the proposed mass meeting that Mayor
ILane would be the proper man to select
to oppose jSjmon in the June election.
"While the anti-Simon following always
lias regarded Lane the strongest man
that could be brought out against Simon,
there are two good reasons why; the
Mayor will probably not figure In any de
liberations of that character. In the first
place, it is not believed that Lane- would
consent to runas an independent In view
of his gubernatorial aspirations. Second,
it Is not to be txpected that Kellaher and
Albee at this stage of the game would
agree to step aside for Lane. For these
reasons the first thing the opositlon to
the regular Republican ticket has decided
must be done is to get Kellaher and
Albee together on some mutual under
standing, that a single candidate may be
put in the field.
The Kellaher-Rushltght people and the
MoCusker-Ayer-Albee forces realize that
with Munly in the field for the Demo
cratic votes and the anti-Simon Repub
lican strength divided between Kellaher
and Albee, the election of Simon would
be Just as easy of accomplishment as was
his nomination in the primary election.
AVhen the anti-Simon camps have recov
ered from the landslide of last Saturday
it Is expected that definite negotiations
of some kind will be opened looking to
bringing out some man against Simon.
A .. - i . i '
City Auditor Barbur, with the assist
ance of County Cleric Fields and Jus
tice of the Peace Olson, will begin the
official canvass of the vote cast in
the primary election Saturday at , 8
o'clock this morning. It will be a com
paratively easy matter to make the of
ficial count of the Republican vote, but
considerable time will be required to
determine the Democratic nominees by
reason of the" wholesale manner In
-which members of the minority party
voted for candidates for the respective
ofices. It is a certainty that the offi
cial count will not alter the result so
far as the Republican candidates are
concerned, and H is not at all likely
that the official figures will differ es
sentially from those published in The
Oregonlan Sunday morning.
Expenses Must lie Shown.
Under the provisions of the -corrupt
practices act, candidates in the primary
election last Saturday are required to
file a statement of their campaign ex
penses with the City Auditor within ten
days following the election. If such
statements a,re not filed within the pre
scribed time, it is made the duty of the
Auditor to notify the District Attorney,
who is authorized to prefer misdemeanor
charges against the delinquent candidates.
In the recent election, candidates for mu
nicipal offices, other than Councilmen,
were not allowed legally to expend more
than 16 per cent of their first year's sal
ary. .The expenses of candidates for the
Council, under the law. in the primary
campaign are limited to $100. None of
the candidates has yet filed such a state
ment. "Let us all pull together for a united,
harmonious Republican party," is the
suggestion incorporated in the postal
card invitations which have been Issued
to the Republican . ratification meeting
to be held in the Selling-Hirsch build
ing tomorrow night Tinder the auspices
of the Republican Club. Judge M. C.
George, president of the club, will pre
side and all candidates In the recent
primary for Republican nominations
are expected to be present and address
the meeting. Charles E. Lockwood, A.

'Kepubllcans Expect to AA'age' Active
Through ihe organization of workirw
olubs In each " precinct, the Republican
city central .committee will conduct an
active campaign In behalf of the election
of the entire Republican municipal ticket
nominated in the primary election. This
was one of the details incident to the
pending campaign decided at a meeting
of the. committee last night. This par-
nv-umr pian 01 enecuve campaign errort
was suggested by Professor J. T. Oregs
and it was adopted enthusiastically.
The committee effected permanent or
ganisation, on motion of J. -Jr. Kertchem,
by electing A. B. Manley and McKinley
Mitchell, temporary chairman and sec
retary, respectively, the permanent of
ficers of the organization.
Chairman" Manley was authorised to
appoint an executive board .of ten mem
bers, consisting of one from each ward,
and. a .finance committee of five whose
duty it will be to raise the necessary
7 unas lor the campaign.
In assembling , the committee. Chair
man Manley congratulated Its members
on the success that had attended their
work in selecting the delegates to the
recent Republican assembly. "There can
be so question but that the vote caBt
in Saturday's election demonstrated that
the Republican voters "of Portland
heartily . approve of the action of the
committee in making the assembly pos
sible," said he.
W, M. Cake urged on the Committee
men that the success of the. ticket that
has heen nominate) HertenHerl (in their
efforts individually and collectively. He '
said that with party unity and active
committeemen the success of the Repub
lican nominees was assured. Those mem
bers of the committee .who were not
willing to abide by the result of the
primary election and boost for the ticket,
declared Mr. Cake, owed it to themselves
and their party to step, down and out
and let other aggressive Republicans
succeed to their places. - ,
"There would be no need for an as
sembly or" any other gathering of Its
kind." remarked Mr. Cake, "if men who
are now posing as firm believers -in the
Republican party had abided by' the
choice of the Republican primary elec
tions in the past and supported those
nominees, instead of 'repudiating the
ticket and- assisting in the election of
Democrats." .- -
The only inkling of lack of harmony
was furnished by R. P. McDonald, de
feated .candidate for Councilman in the
Tenth Ward. Mr. . McDonald made 'the
charge that Joseph T. Ellis, the suc
cessful candidate in that ward, refused
before the primary election to agree to
support the choice of the party. ; For
that reason, Mr. McDonald said that
five of the eight candidates for that
nomination in the Tenth, who had en
tered into such an agreement, would re
fuse to support Ellis In the June elec
tion. Other- members of- the committee
pleaded for harmony and the "support
of very man on the ticket but Mc
Donald would not be reconciled and de
clared that an organized effort would
be made by the defeated candidates for
Councilman In his ward to defeat Ellis
In June. " ...
WELCOME IS WARM
Mischa Elman Scores
It u mm I a n Vlolinlxt, at Hvllls The
ater, Arouses Cheer of Lance
and Representative Audience . by
Splendid Playing;. '
BY JOSEPH M. QUENTEN.
WE have heard Joachim, Musin,
Kubelik, Kreisler, 'Hartmann and
Maud Powell and have paid them with
enthusiastic applause and our dollars
for their magnificent violin playing, and
have asked ourselves: Can there be any
violin playing better than this? The
answer is: Mischa Elmaja. The one
violinist of our generation. Not for
nothing has the same verdict been
passed upon his genius that's the word
by large audiences at SU Petersburg,
Paris, Berlin, London,- iNew York City,
Chicago and other cities inkthis country.
He appeared before them as a "Compara
tive stranger, played and left as a con
queror. So Portland Joins the process
The Heillg Theater was jammed to the
doors last night by ,a brilliant audience.
Including quite a sprinkling of profes
sional musicians, and never did an
artist receive a more fervent welcome
than Elman. He was not only ap
plauded and the recipient of many smiles,
but ' - .....
He was cheered!'
And that's something new for us in this
conservative' city. .
Elman- was all the - more a . surprise
when a critical examination of his per
sonal appearance revealed an every-day
sort of boy, and his violin, for all the
world; might -have been the usual wooden
box made for the trade. But -when El
man was fairly well along in i the Lalo
"Spanish Symphony," one recognized
that a warmer, more luscious tone came
from that violin than has ever been
heard here before. That was it tone,
and then more tone, of - the sparkling,
sunshiny order. In describing Elman
one does not need to think of trills, double-
stopping runs, harmonics, cadenzas the
something to be acquired by study. El
man is so gift,ed as a great violin player
that the delight of his torn?, so sweet, so
much like a stream of imprisoned sun
light, that critical analysis is difficult.
Elman is a violin wizard at IS years of
age. Well, what will he be when his
art 1s mellowed by maturity? A world
., Cultivated musicians in last' night's
audience fairly lost control of their cus
tomary composure In applauding Elman,
and the only undisturbed persons I saw
there-were several professional . violinists
who did not seem to be able to grasp the
fact that a great musical genius was be
fore, them. The wonderful, nearly hu
man tone .of that Stradivari of Cremona!
As Elman played I though of Helen A.
In far Cremona centuries ago'
This little sighing, singing thing was
wrought. . - - .
Of dreams 'tis fashioned and Its tones are
With sweetness only centuries testow. .
But give an artist hand the slender bow.
And hark the tumult of Impassioned
The heaven -we missed, the", earth we
Within our shaken pulses ebb and now.
Critically speaking, Elman did not play
a programme bristling with technical
difficulties, just to show what he xcould
do in the way of moving mountains. He
chose offerings that had a tune to them.
His pose on the stage is restless. Some
times he turns his face away from the
audience and ways and sways, as If he
were under strong emotion. His -style is
-notv. statuesque ease it is rather an
ocean of energy. . Now and then his
features lighted up with a sudden ra
diance, as if he were conveying a mes
sage. And I never before saw a violin
ist spend so much time in full view of
his audience, tuning up his violin. But
look at the result achieved, and one-ean
forgive any mannerism. - :
Elman is also a master of trick play.
The Lalo and . Wlenlawski numbers
seemed to arouse the warmest enthus
iasm, and for'a worn selection the "Ave
Maria" of Schubert-Wihlelmj pleased Im
mensely but no woman cried about, jt as
in other - cities, so far as could be" ob
served. Elman got about 80 recalls, but
he only gave these thre.e encores: "Pres
lled." from Wagner's "Meisterslnger";
"Sarabande," by Sulzer. and "Serenade,"
by Drigo. At least, that is the list he
gave me afterward.
Elman's piano accompanist was Henry
Graboff. of New York City, and he did
his work unusually well, being at all
times In fine sympathy with the soloist.
Mr. Graboff was taught piano In New
York City by Lambert, in Berlin by
Barth and in Vienna by the celebrated
The concert was under the direction of
Lois Steers-Wynn Coman and wits in
every way a distinguished success. By
the way, Elman's concert is the last of
the - Lois Steers-Wynn Coman concerts
this season. They have been a pleas
antly remembered, memorable series.

PEOPLE, OXE AA1TH PORTLAND
Lewis County Bound to Us by Bonds
CHEHALIS, Wash.. May 10. (Special.)
The following remarks by the manag
ing eunor or me Oregonlan, in response
to the address of welcome by Mayor
west, are printed at the request of the
Citizens' Club of Chehalls:
"Mayor West, and -Gentlemen of ' Che
halls: We are business men of Port
land. You will have to take our word
for it; and, as you are good natured and
confiding and hospitable, we know you
are wrlling to take any chance on us.
Your presence here shows it. Of course
you may have your suspicions aroused
When you observe that an editor is put
forward to speak for a company of busi
ness men, especially when they are
sober to the last man, but I beg to' re
mind you that it Is the business of a
newspaper, always, to speak for busi
ness men, and it is especially the busi
ness of the newspaper which I represent.
It endeavors to voice not only the in
terests and feelings and sentiments and
ambitions of the city In which it is pub
lished, but its energies and effort and
purposes are as they have been for 59
years, to - reflect the growth, develop
ment and progress of the great Oregon
country of which Chehalls is now and
has been from pioneer days so distinctive
a part. . .
"This is a pioneer community: It -wan
a thriving and comparatively well set
tled country when Oregon embraced
within its territorial limits Washine-ton.
Idaho and a part of Montana. There
fore, you know Portland as you have
known Oregon. The mystic chords of
memory radiate - from many a home in
Lewie County to the touching stories
of the struggles and . hardships and
triumphs of the men who brought their
wives and children and household goods
on the long journey across the plains
to create homes- in the -wilderness of the
far-off Northwest. So I say that Chei
halls and Lewis County are bone of our
bone and flesh of our flesh, and not the
arbitrary lines of the geography-makers,
nor the influx of some few people who
know little and care less about'our com
mon history and our common' heritage,
will ever separate us. We bring to you
.today a message of good will and good
cheer. , - .
"Old Mother Oregon is proud of her
beautiful daughter and is here to salute
her and tell her that she Is proud. We
have observed with pleasure the amaz
ing 'growth of this wonderful young
state; we have done more than look on,
however, for we have helped "along some
what in the upward climb. We have,
meanwhile, not stood still ourselves.
This excursion of business men, not of
fice boys or--clerks, or subordinates, but
of the - chiefs and heads of Portland's
most important institutions this excur
sion'of business men, I saj. is taken for
the purpose of showing our abiding in
terest in 'you and yours, of extending to
you our congratulations upon your mag
nificent success and of offering up in

Ex-Cashier Straus AV1I1 Be Tried
Jfext AVeek for Alleged Defalca
tions in Local Postal" Funds.
Indians Also Before Court.
Several criminal trials are scheduled
for hearing In the United States Court
beginning this morning. The first case
to be taken up is that of J. Rawlance,
alias J. Williams, who has 'been indicted
for assisting in the transportation of
contraband opium into the United States.
Williams has announced he will defend
his own case. -
Williams was arrested in this city about
a year ago with a quantity of smuggled
opium in his possession. He deposited
J1500 cash bail for his appearance before
the Federal grand jury. Failing to re
port, the bond was forfeited to the Gov
ernment. A few months later he was ar
rested on a similar charge at Puget
Sound and turned over to the Federal
authorities in this citv for trial. The r.t.
fense with which Williams is charged is
punishable by a fine of fror.i J50 to $5000,
and by imprisonment not exceeding two
years, or both. . v
The calling "of - the Williams ''case
brings up some interesting facts in
connection with opium smuggling on
the Pacific Coast. -prll 1, 1909 ' the
law prohibiting the importation' and
sale of opium In the United States and
Canada went into effect. Prior to the
enactment of the law, customs repre
sentatives of the United States, Can
ada and China held- a meeting and it
was agreed by all three representatives
to endeavor to abolish the opium busi
ness. On April 1 there were large quantities
of the drug in the bonded warehouses in
the cities on the Coast. During March
the duty was paid on all so placed, stamps
affixed and it was properly delivered to
private individuals. This is exempt from
the provisions of the law. On Puget
Sound there are large caches of the stuff
with no stamps affixed, and this is now
liable to confiscation and destruction.
The price has already advanced $8 a
five-tael can, or $16 a pound. The trou
ble experienced by the smuggler will be
in the disposition of the opium.
Customs .officials are now exercising
particular vigilance, and it. has been re
ported that the Government is receiving
inside Information relative to the opera
tions of certain persons who have banded
together for the purpose of bringing In
opium. The tips are said to be handed
out by the people who have large caches
at San Francisco and at points on Puget
Sound. These people are holding the
stuff until the price shall have gone up
to the vicinity of $100 a pound. During
the . prohibitive period in Hawaii', the
price of opium went as high as $1S0 a
Other cases to be tried this week in
clude the following: John Snyder, charged
With the theft of four horses from another
Indian onthe Umatilla Indian Reserva
tion; John Mitchell, Umatilla Indian, for
the attempted murder of his mother;
Walter Bronson, also an Indian, for the
theft of a saddle from his father-in-law,
and W. G. Cuthbert, a local photog
rapher', who 1 accused of sending through
the United States mails threatening let

Two of the most important criminal
cases to be tried at this term of the Fed
eral Court will be heard next week. The
trial of Charles A. Straus, ex-cashier of
the Portland postoffice, will begin next
Monday. Mr. Straus was Indicted for
embezzling about. $4000 of postal funds
during his incumbency of the office. The
other case is that against "William' Han
ley, who is under indictment for having
wrongfully fenced about 90.000 acres of
public land in Harney County.

Better Sidewalks Xeeded.
Unless the people of University Park
get busy in the construction of sidewalks
in that section of the city. Postmaster
Young is of the opinion that the inspector
who will be sent to investigate will re
port unfavorably on their request for ad
ditional postal carriers. One of the re
quisites essential to securing additional
carriers in the suburban districts under
the postal regulations is that the terri
tory to be supplied shall be provided with
sidewalks. "The people of University
Park are -entitled to more carriers and an
improved service." said Postmaster Young
yesterday, "but it is up to them to com
ply with the requirements of the Gov
ernment and see to it that the necessary
sidewalks are provided."

Hubbard Glad to See Rain.
HUBBARD, Or., May 10. (Special.)
With the shower of today ended the
longest dry spell ever recorded this
early In the . season. Usually April
showers are abundant and farmers
throughout the- Vatley are not Incon
venienced on account of drought until
July, but during 35 days of the recent
dry spell only one light shower, on
April 27, which was hardly enough "to
lay the dust, interrupted the monotony
of sunshine. The absence of rain for
35 days would have caused little anxi
ety among farmers had it not been for
the extreme wind which prevailed dur
ing most of that period. The wind
dried the soil so that many crops be
gan to suffer. Early-sown Spring grain,
especially that sown while the ground
was still a little too mofst, and gar
den truck suffered most. Fall-sown
grain has not suffered.

No Man ts Stronger
Than His Stomach
. t ... .: z.
A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its cssociated organs, which im
pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weali or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition,
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. When a man "doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn t sleep well, has an uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and despond
ent, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such a man should use Dr. Pierce' a Golden Medical
Discovery. It cares diseases of the stomach and other
organs oT digestion and nutrition. It enriches the blood,
invigorates the liver, strengthens the kidneys, nourishes
the nerves, and so GIVES HEALTH aXD S THE AG TH TO
THE WHOLE BODY.
