Unable to hear from Senator Jona
than Bourne as to what disposition will
Te made of the present postoffice building-
and site, Portland commercial or
ganizations are at a standstill regard
ing contemplated action In assistance
ft the selection of a satisfactory site.
From every quarter of the. business
fiection a protest is coming against any
action which proposes the sale of the
ground used now for postoffice pur
poses. "We need a new postoffice very bad
ly." saJd a well-known merchant last
night, "but my associates would prefer
to see the same ground occupied by a
new building, than to see some other
less suitable place, for the new build
ing selected. The present location is
convenient for everybody."
Increasing- interest was yesterday
manifested In the Henry W. Corbett
property between Yamhill and Taylor
etreets and Fifth and Sixth streets, now
occupied as the home of Mrs. Corbett.
and an investigation of the probability
of the property being sold was made
to a representative of the Commercial
Club.
The result completely eliminated
consideration of that property. Under
the H. W. Corbett will, the widow was
jriven a life estate in that spot of
ground, and it is provided that the old
Coarbett home shall be available as the
residence of grandsons of H. W. Cor
bett for a period of ten years follow
ing the death of Mrs. Corbett. Another
provision of the will prevents the sale
of the property until such time as the
youngest grandson of Mr. Corbett shall
have attained the age of 40 years.
The rush for blanks upon which to
submit bids was sustained at the office
of Postmaster Merrick yesterday. It is
probail that no less than 60 sites will
be offered the Government. Among
those which are sure to be offered is
the property known as the Dolph home
etead, between Jefferson and Main
Btreets. Fifth and Sixth streets. Marlon
F. rph will submit an attractive
offer of the block of ground, and an
nounces that, so far as price is con
cerned, there will be no competition
against him. '
Another competitor for the honor of
furnishing the site may be the Port
land Railway, Light & Power Company,
owners of the block between First and
Second streets, on Pine. The property
was originally intended as a central
station, but its use for that purpose has
been abandoned. It Is now occupied by
the McCracken warehouse.

KRUSE RUSHES TO FORE
PLEDGE - BREAKER DECLARES
AGAIXST ASSEMBLY.
Wilson vi lie Legislator Who Violated
Agreement to Vote for Corbett
Issues Circular.
OREGON CITY, July 7. (Special
J. L. Kruse. a farmer of . Wilson ville
nd a member of the Legislative session
of 1901. is out today with a circular let
ter that was mailed to every Republi
can voter in Clackamas County, avow
ing an intention to defeat the purpose
of the Republican Assembly that has
been called to meet at Oregon City on
Saturday. July 16. to select delegates to
the State Assembly at Portland.
Kruse is actuated by the fear that
the assembly will attempt to nominate
a county ticket and he implores all Re
publicans to attend the precinct pri
maries next Saturday and send dele
gates to the County Assembly who will
act In opposition to the whole plan,
which was recommended by the Re
publican County Central Committee.
Mr. Kruse is manifesting unexpected
interest in the Democratic anti-assembly
campaign In Clackamas County. His
political associates in this county have
not forgotten the letter he signed.
pledging his support to H. W. Corbett
lor United States Senator. Mr. Kruse
showed so much faithfulness in the
Legislature that along with J. A. Tal-
bert and George C. Brownell. who are
opposing the Republican organization
here, he refused to vote for Mr,. Cor
bett. The other letter Mr. Kruse wrote
follows:
"We. the following nominees for Rore-
eentatives from Clackamas rnn nfv in th
Legislature of the State of Oregon, desiring
. uo aii inai we can to am in the nomina
tion ot George C. Brownell for Congress in

State Assembly Plan Indorsed by
County Central Committee.
FRJ NEVILLE, Or.." July 7. A meet
ing of the committeemen of assembly
belief was held in Prineville yesterday
in response to a call issued by Chair
man R. A. Ford of the county central
committee.
The attendance was lighter than was
expected because of the busy time the
farmers are experiencing with their
crops at present. All delegates ex
pressed the idea, however, that organ
ization must be maintained, and the
assembly was agreed to be the best
thing for the party at this time.
Xo county assembly has been called,
however, and because of county divi
sion troubles and other contests this
matter may not be acted upon by the
central committee, for-a time at least.
The permanent officers of the county
central committee for the coming year
are: R. A. Ford, chairman, and E. L.
Ashby, secretary.
The full quota of delegates to the
state assembly was selected. IS in
number. They are: H. P. Belknap. R.
A. Ford and M. R. Elliott, of Prine
ville; Howard Turner and J. A. Coul

PRIMARIES PRECEDE ASSEMBLY
Enemies of Movement in Oregon
City Would Elect Hostile Delegates.
OREGON CITY. Or., July 7. (Special.)
In each precinct of Clackamas County
Republicans will hold primaries next
Saturday at 7 o'clock P. M. to select
delegates to the county assembly at Ore
gon City. Saturday, July 16. There will
be 230 delegates in the assembly, which
is called at the instance of the county
central committee, which adopted the
Gibson resolution providing for the elec
tion of 55 delegates from Clackamas
County to the state assembly at Portland,
"and for such other matters as . may
legally and regularly come before the
delegates."
It is this last clause that has stirred
up trouble In the camp of the anti-as-semblyites.-
Through this fancied loop
hole they believe the assembly people
will attempt not only to select the 55
delegates to the state assembly, but will
also nominate a county ticket. This lat
ter action would seriously disarrange the
plans of those candidates for office who
have publicly denounced the whole as
sembly scheme as an attempt to return
to the days of "ring" conventions.
With this bugaboo in sight much,
work is being done to influence the Re
publicans in every part of the county
to select delegates to the county assem
bly who will be hostile to the assembly
movement, with the hope that after the
delegates are seated they will enact reso
lutions denouncing the assembly, and
then adjourn, without even choosing dele
gates to the state assembly.
WASCO DELEGATES SELECTED

Wasco County' delegates to the Re
publican state assembly have been

HAWLEY AIDS FARMERS
ASSISTANCE OF AGRICULTURAL
DEPARTMENT SECURED.
Government Will Introduce Grasses
for Dairymen adn Establish Pre
Cooling Fruit Station.
SALEM, Or., July 7. (Special.) As
guests of Representative Willis C.
Hawley, and at his request. Dr. G. H.
Powell, Acting Chief of the Bureau of
Planty Industry, and Dr. E. C. ChiU
cott. Dry Land Agriculturist, both of
of the Department of Agriculture, spent
several hours in Salem today.
Representative Hawley has been
working for many months with the
Department to secure some concessions
for the Willamette Valley which he be
lieves will be-immensely important to
varied farming Interests here.
"When the white men came to this
valley they found grasses five and six
feet high." said Mr. Hawley, "and there
is no reason why this should not be a
leading grass country. Oregon's dairy
ing Interests last year reached the stu
pendous figure of $17,000,000. and good
grasses would be of inestimable value
to the dairymen. The Department rep
resentatives have promised me that
they will secure grasses which will
grow freely here and will Introduce
them into the valley.
"People of this section eat more pigs
than they can raise. I have the De
partment's promise that cereals will
be found which will thrive here and
will materially aid In stock raising."
One of the principal objects of the
agricultural experts, however, was to
ascertain the condition of the prune
crop and to make arrangements for de
velopment of a system for pre-cooling
fruit. Many months ago Congressman
Hawley and Salem Fruit Union secured
a tentative promise from the Depart
ment of Agriculture that a pre-coollng
station would be established here and
an expert' sent to demonstrate this
method of shipping fruit. Difficulties
in securing their crop made it neces
sary for the Department to turn its
energies in that direction, but the two
department representatives here today
promised that the Willamette Valley
would be given all the attention ext
year, and Representative Hawley has
just received a letter from Secretary
Wilson to that effect, as well.
"There is no reason in the world why
prunes from Oregon should not be
shipped green to all the Eastern mar
kets In perfect condition." declared Dr.
Powell. after he had been taken
through the Rosedale prune district by
President W. I. Staley. of the Cherry
Fair. "These prunes are needed in the
Eastern markets. The green prune in
dustry should be developed to Its
fullet extent."
Pioneer Reunion Held.
VALE. Or., July 7. (Special.) The

tered in getting the injured Bolflng

Bolflng was suffering untold agonies
when he arrived here, a bone near the
hip being broken. He is much im
proved now. however.
The accident occurred in a most pe
culiar way. Both hunters came upon a
bear and followed the animal. " When
Buchanan got within range, he fired.
The ball passed through the bear's
neck, killing it, then struck a tree and
glancing off. hit Bolfing.
BIG DRYDOCKS RUMORED
Vancouver Experts Soon to Build
Warships for Canadian Navy.
VANCOUVER. B. C, July 6. (Spe
cial.) Vancouver is waiting with in
terest the first actual start of opera
tions toward the erection here of either
a huge drydock or a shipyard capable
of building vessels for the new Cana
dian navy.
Rumors have been made of late, first
in reference to one plan and then to
the other. One which was accepted for
a time, but now discredited, was that
Vickers & Maxim would erect in North
Vancouver a large shipyard and dock
capable of constructing Canadian war
ships. The latest, and most believed report,
however, is that Roche Point, on the
mainland and near this city, will soon
be the site of a second-class drydock
large enough to accommodate vessels
of 15,000 tons. Ottawa has granted the
subvention for the dock, and the enter
prise is to be undertaken by the Im
perial Car & Shipbuilding & Drydock
Company, in conjunction with Messrs.
Nicol, Thompson and Bullock, of this
city.

The son has been attending O. A. C- and
one of the daughters is a nurse In
a Portland hospital, while the other is
in California. He was aged about 65
years, and the news of the death was
very unexpected, as the last that was
heard from him was that he was in
better health and had bought a large
banana ranch there.
LOW WATER STOPS MILL

Logs Are Unobtainable.
SPRINGFIELD, Or.. July 7. (Special.)
Because the water is so low in the Wil
lamette that the logs cannot run. the
Booth-Kelly mill here has been forced to

started 20 miles up the river. There are
half a hundred men out of employment
and the shutdown happens at a time
when the lumber demand is heavy.

The County Health Commissioner filed
a report today for the month of June,

Ireland's delegation to the National
convention of the Ancient Order of Hi
bernians, which convenes in Portland
on Tuesday morning, is now crossing
the Continent, and will be among the
first to register at local headquarters.
Information, received yesterday is to
the effect that O. Concanon is at the
head of the party of visitors from
across the sea. He is coming as the
personal representative of Dr. Douglas
Hyde, president of the Gaelic League.
Dr. Hyde expected to be here in person,
but was prevented by unforseen cir
cumstances. Dr. Hyde is a leader of
Protestant faith in. Ireland, but is de
voting his life to the Irish cause of
freedom. The Gaelic League is work
ing to reestablish the study and use of
the Gaelic language and customs of
the country, and by raising the stan
dard of education prepare the Irish
people for the day when the old sod
will be known as a nation.
' That the coming convention will be
crammed full of the politics Incident
to the Irish question is conceded. It
was announced yesterday that Portland
would probably be the scene of the
uniting of all the forces which have
for years been attempting to accom
plish the same thing in a different
manner.
Noted Leaders Coming.
M. J. Ryan, of Philadelphia, will be
here. He Is recognized as the Ameri
can leader of the parliamentary party
which supports John Redmond ' in the
English Parliament, and which is
backed by the Irish League. This dl
vision of the membership of the Hi
bernians has always worked for the
peaceful sundering of the bonds which
hold their "native land.
Ia contrast, the famous leader of the
Clan Na Gael in America. John de voy.
of Boston, will be here at the head
of the followers of the Robert Emmett
method of securing freedom. The Clan
Na Gael delegates are usually to be
found on the side of the mo6t radical
action proposed.
"They are fine fellows." said a prom
Inent Portland Irishman yesterday,
"and would have made fine road agents
in the early days of the West. They
are the boys who believe in the stand-
and deliver' method of handling the
political question in Ireland."
Portland Has No Office Seekers.
For years an effort has been made to
get the different elements of the Hi
bernians acting In unison, and it Is
announced that the plans and amend
ments to the constitution of the order
which are to be proposed this year, will
have that result.
Literature received at headquarters
indicates tha.t the great fight of the
convention will be over the office of
president, Mathew Cummings being an
nounced for re-election. He is opposed
by Joseph McLoughlm. of Philadelphia.
Portland will not ask for a place on
the official roster because of the con
vention being held here.
The actual work of the convention
will begin at 11 o'clock at Masonic Hall,
and will be preceded by Pontificial high
mass at St. Mary's Cathedral. Fifteenth
and Davis streets, celebrated by Arch
bishop Alexander Christie.
The mass will begin at 9 o'clock in
the morning and arrangements are com
pleted for the rendition of an elaborate

HEIR TO MILLIONS FIGHTS
Forest Grove Man Says He'll Seek
Fart of $400,000,000 Estate.
FOREST GF.OVE. Or., July 7 (Spe
cial.) J. S. Trumble, of this city, who Is
an heir to the estate of his great-grandfather
in Baltimore. Md.. valued at $400.
000.000, expects to leave in a few weeks
for that city to look after the details of
the estate. 'The lease on the property,
which was for S9 years, has expired and
was given in 1S07.
There are large and costly buildings
erected on the property and Mr. Trumble
believes that the wheels of justice will
yet turn in favor of him and the other
20 or more heirs to the estate. ,
"Even if it should cost us half of the
valuation of the estate to reach a ee-ttle-
jTYC;
The above illustrates faithfully a piaao for which a certain
6maH concern, which recently conducted a so-called publicity contest
(?) is asking $625. A caller yesterday informed us that she had
actually selected the above piano at the price they asked, $625. It
is a wonderfully showy piano, but when she found the identical make
and style at Eilers Music House for $423, at actually $202 less, she
was amazed as well as indignant, particulaxly when the tone of this
showy piano was compared with Chickerings and Sohmers and Kim
balls and Deckers, all of which under the Eilers' low-price selling
policy were obtainable for less.
Is it any wonder that she gladly forfeited $25 which she had
put up as a deposit at the other place, and selected her piano at Eilers
Music House?
We have here now for $285 piaoaos far better, both as regards
tone, quality and workmanship, than the same small concern is ask
ing people to pay $450 for.
These are no idle boasts, but positive facts.
Again we say, is it wise to deal with a more or less unknown
concern of the here-today-and-probably-gone-tomorrow order? Isn't
it-better to deal with a house that is here to stay, that has carried
out every promise and agreement to the letter, a.nd that undoubtedly
always will a concern that has built up its gigantic business and un
questionable reputation right here in this community a house that
is known to give greater intrinsic piano value for every dollar invested
than is obtainable elsewhere a home . institution, such as Eilers
Music House.
Remember we've made arrangements with nine of America's
foremost piano factories to accept all prize checks at their full face
