lO THE MORNING OREGOXIAX, TUESDAY, MAT 11, 1909. INDEPENDENTS TO 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.

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 Tremendous Hit. 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 eion. 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 wonder. ., 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. Saxon's lines: In far Cremona centuries ago' This little sighing, singing thing was wrought. . - - . Of dreams 'tis fashioned and Its tones are fraught With sweetness only centuries testow. . But give an artist hand the slender bow. And hark the tumult of Impassioned thought The heaven -we missed, the", earth we vainly sought 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 Emll Sauer. 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. Reconsider Disfranchisement Bill.

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.

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 pound. 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 ters calculated to reflect on-, another's reputation. 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.

Beginning July 1, next, the annual sal aries of 10 of the 16 Government employes in charge of contract sub-postal stations in this city will be increased from $100 to $200 each. This information reached Post master Young yesterday from C. P. Gran field, First Assistant Postmaster-General at Washington, In response to Mr. Young's letter of April 28, requesting that the salaries of these employes be advanced. Mr. Young had asked for an increase in the pay of all 16 offices, but the depart ment allowed the application in ten cases.

Weltzel, $200 to $200. , Postmaster Young has not been advised of what action the department will take on his application for an advance In the salaries of the superintendents and assist ant superintendents of the various differ ent divisions at the main postoffice. This application was made at- the same time more pay was requested for the substations. Girl AA'ears Man's Clothes. Clad in man's attire, Dora Deligne, 18 years of age, was. arrested last night at the head of Washington street, near the City Park entrance and brought to the police station, -where she was lodged in Jail. A man she said -was -her husrjand was also arrested and locked up. The couple was found sitting by a campflre in company with other men. She wore the male attire, she said, for convenience in traveling about the country. Boys' Turn In False Alarms. False fire alarms were turned in last night from boxes 253 and 263 In immediate succession. The former is at East Eighth and Going streets aad 'the latter is situ ated at Eleventh and- Weldler streets. They were given presumably by young hoodlums. The Fire Department reports there has been considerable mischief of this kind going on during the last month and an attempt will be made to capture and prosecute those guilty. 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." Young Tighter Arrested.
