ALBEE IS PICKED TO
Chaos Still Reigns in Ranks of
Defeated Anti-Simon Re
IS FIGHT FOUR-CORNERED?
3IcCuskcr-Ayer Candidate, Kellaher,
Who Won't Withdraw and Munly,
Who Also Has Aspirations, AH
i Expected to Oppose Simon. '
Chaos in the camps of the opposition
to Simon, following the crushing defeat
administered by him at the primary elec
tion last Saturday, has bo far failed to
lve way to a mature plan Of campaign
tn the second assault on the regular Re
publican forces. The opposition is rally
ing but as yet a single point of concen
tration is lacking and it seemed next to
certain, yesterday, that the fight to come
is to be a four-cornered affair.
While definite action is lacking, the
McOusker-Ayer corps has made up its
mind that H. R. Albee, ex-3tate Senator,
is the Agulnaldo who can best lead the
insurrecto Republicans. They are saying
many nice things about Albee and figur
ing industriously on his merits as Mayor
alty timber and while Albee hasn't yet
stripped off hiB coa-t and flung himself
into the game it is understood he but
waits the psychological moment.
Now, Kellaher, much as the Ayer-Mc-Cuskerites
would wish to see him out of
the way, hasn't any lflea of retreating as
an independent Republican. In fact, it
is given out he Is on the eve of launch
ing his active campaign and a move from
lilm in that direction may be looked for
almost any day.
And there's Munly, the ' Democratic op
ponent of Simon, who is planning to busy
himself at once with the gentle art of
capturing votes. In order to give a cer
tain amount of impetus to the Munly
campaign, the Democratic County Central
Committee will meet tonight and do a
little planning. The committee will meet
"With Chairman George II- Thomas in the
Alnsworth building and it 1b intimated
some astounding thunder is to be pro
pagated having to do with blanket fran
chises this to add something to the
chance of getting some Iemocratlc Coun
cil possibilities into the limelight.
Regular Republicans Tranquil.
All this is fostering in the camps of
these who are against the Simon regime.
In the regular Republican fold all is
tranquility and quietude, and confidence.
Republicans who were anywhere and
everywhere before the primaries are now.
said to be cheerfully abiding by the re
sults. Said one of these who, a week
ago, was anything but a Simon man:
"Simon is the Republican nominee,
chosen by an expression of sentiment that
is not to ba misunderstood. I am a Re
publican. Consequently the only con
Flstent thing for me to do Is to support
the candidate so chosen."
While the outcome of the primaries
had a most harmonizing effect and tended
to stimulate party loyalty, yet the op
position is deceiving Itself into the belief
that no significance is to be attached
thereto. It says every Simon man was
out for the primaries and that the beaters
in the political bushes win not be able
to make any bigger drive for the forth
So the opposition, being confronted with
the rigors of a four-handed combKt,
claims to have no great fear. It points
with enthusiasm to the fact that fewer
than half the voters got out last Satur
day and that the percentage that re
mained at borne is suspectible to the
Issues of a brisk campaign rather than
to party fealty. Iet there be four In the
light If there must, say those of the Mc-Cusker-Ayer
political temperament. The
most Simon can get is his 6000 of Satur
day plus 1000 for probable gain. Hence
two opposition independents, running
neck and neck, would outstrip the regular
nominee. This excessive optimism, how
ever, said a Simon man, is oddly sug
gestive of a very small boy whistling on
& very dark night while walking along a
very lonely lane.
Lane Down and Out.
And speaking of Lanes, there no longer
Is any likelihood that the one of the
mighty biceps will figure in the present
campaign. AVhlch is a matter of some
considerable disappointment to the tn
surrectos, for they might have been able
to concentrate on - him. Now they are
charging that his name wasn't written in
by the , Democratic voters of the city
because of Republican machinations. Just
what Republicans have to do with Demo
cratic primaries isn't clear on the face
of it but loud is the wall that the Demo
crats have failed in a worthy mission by
falling to write in the name of the doctor.
As to getting behind Mr. Munly, the
DemocraUo nominee, the independents
will not even think of such a thing. They
view him with distinct- suspicion because,
one day long ago, he was suspected of
being a Mitchell adherent.
So, the pot's beginning to simmer. It
promises to reach the boiling point ere
many days. After the sluggish primaries
a -reaction is quite to be suspected and
it need not be at all surprising if the pre
election period proves the antithesis of
the pre-primary period, so far as interest
and excitement are concerned.
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE NAMED
Manley Chooses Republicans to Di
rect City Campaign.
Chairman Manley, of the Republican
City Central Committee, yesterday an
nounced the members of the executive
committee which will direct the campaign
that is to be conducted in the interest
of the Republican municipal ticket nom
inated in the primary election. This
committee consists of one member from
each ward, as' follows: First, . Charles
Conroy; Second. T. E. Fisher; Third. C.
E. Lockwood; Fourth. H. Daniels; Fifth.
A. J. Fanno; Sixth. C. H. Feldman; Sev
enth. James F. Kertchem: Eighth, H. B.
Dickinson; Ninth, J. F. Wilson; Tenth,
Professor J. T. Gregg.
It will be the purpose of the Republican
City Central Committee frequently to
hold meetings and consult with members
of the executive committee, that the
most effective campaign may be provided.
Much of the real work of the campaign
will devolve on working clubs which are
to be organised in each precinct. Mem
bers of the committee which is to raise
funds to meet the necessary expenses of
the campaign have not been appointed
by Chairman Manley.
TEI.li OF CAMPAIGN EXPENSES
Statements of Candidates Are Ex
pected to Be Low.
Within ten days all those who ran In
the primaries must file with City Auditor
Barbur a statement of expenses incurred
and bills paid. Otherwise some officious
person in blue clothes and brass buttons
may happen around with a misdemeanor
warrant. The corrupt practices law
makes it necessary to swear to a state
ment of all expenditures.
Now, it only cost Joseph Simon 175.75
to win. He kept his expenses down to
the core, it is announced, paying only
for three pages in the City Auditor's
book at $20 a page, and getting out a few
cards. - Rushlight is known to have
plunged more extensively, for his cards
simply littered the East Side, and cards
run into money at a rapid rate. C. E.
McDonell Invested in only one page in
the City Auditor's booklet, and his addi
tional expenditures bring the total up to
$76 or thereabouts, it is averred. Bailey

and newspaper advertising. It didn't
cost Munly anything to get the Demo
Would-be Councilmen are .the ones re
puted to have spent the money. Down in
the Tenth Ward, particularly, coin was
somewhat free for a- day or two, and
cigars were passed around in. merry
fashion. It is intimated that someone
down that way may yet get into trouble
for passing out cigars during his cam
paign. So far none of the candidates have filed
their itemized statements. The various
statements, in itemized form, will be
looked over with considerable interest,
however, when they do appear.
Ellis Would Have Signed.
Joseph T. Ellis, Republican nominee for
Councilman from the Tenth Ward, yes
terday said that, prior to the primary
election he did not receive a copy of the
pledge submitted by the Republican Club
and binding all candidates for Republican
nomination to municipal office to support
the successful nominee, as determined in
the primary contest. "If I had received
such a pledge," said Mr. Ellis yesterday,
"I certainly would have signed it. I am
not a quitter, and would have supported
the successful Republican nominees, in
cluding Councilman from my ward, re
gardless of the result of the primary
election, pledge or no pledge."

"It Is just about te meanest thing
I ever heard of," said Mr. Tucker yes
terday. "The Seattle men seem to be
afraid that the Rose Festival will
eclipse the A-Y-P by opening about the
same time. I first saw the poster a
few days ago. I was in the Savoy Ho
tel at Seattle at the time. About 40 men
were present, and my friends asked me
about the Seattle fair.
" 'Will it eclipse the Lewis and Clark
fair?' they asked. I told them 'No.'
There were so many different features
that comparison was impossible. I said,
Where the A-Y-P has the fair grounds
in better condition, tiie site is no finer.'.
I said I could -not discuss the size of
the buildings, as they appeared to be
on a par.
'Are you coming to see our Rose
Festival?' I then asked.
" 'Rose Festival!" snorted one- of my
friends. 'Look at this.'
"A word was passed to the clerk, and
he gave us a poster ridiculing the Fes
tival. My friends told me on this lying
authority that we had no roses in Port
land. We obtained them all from Cali
fornia, they said. They told me the Fes-,
tival last year was the biggest bunco
scheme ever worked and everyone in
Seattle would do all they could to pre
vent visitors going to Portland to be
fooled. They insisted the Festival was
a complete exhibition of swindling and
was just designed to attract visitors
from their fair.
Takes Pains to "Knock."
"I tried to set them right, but it did
no good. A little later I dropped into
the Butler Hotel and asked about the
Rose Festival. The clerk took especial
pains to knock it. Rather eagerly I then
asked about the poster. Probably he
guessed then I was from Portland, for
he tried to evade the matter, but I gath

gathered this procedure was to be

"I don't want to knock the fair, for
the grounds are beautiful and well laid
out. Of course, they won't have roses,
but thousands of rhododendrons have
been planted, and these will all be in
gorgeous bloom at the opening week.
"Portland has done such a lot for
the Seattle fair that meanness of this
nature ought to be exposed. . It's a gen
uine exhibit of the 'Seattle spirit,' and
is devised solely to hurt the Rose Fes
tival and Portland. I don't think they
can be successful, but it shows the line
they are taking with the visitor who
asks about Portland. I am assured that
almost every hotel clerk in Seattle,
when asked about Portland, exhibits one
of the noxious, lying sheets."
