ttose Contest In Second Judicial
District Results in Choice of
Percy R. Kelly and I. II.
Van Winkle as Judges.
Opposition to the approval of the
candidacy of the two Republican Rep
resentatives In Congress from Oregon
dwindled as the time approached for
assembly delegates to declare their
preferences. Representative Hawley
was Indorsed In the First District with
out opposition, and like action awaited
the suggestion of the name of Repre
sentative EJlls in the Second District.
Am the delegates began to arrive in
the city on Wednesday the friends of
C. A. Sehlbrede, of Coos County, and
B. F. Mulkey, of Jackson, announced
those men as candidates against Rep
resentative Hawley. and the enthusi
asts from MarBhfleld believed for a time
that their favorite. Mr. Sehlbrede,
would be in the running. The Coos
delegation came to the convention at
great expense to themselves and as the
first county In the state to hold an as
sembly of Republicans placed their hope
of reward on the success of the popular
attorney. During the night and early
yesterday morning the Hawley men be
gan to come In, and at an early hour in
the day both of the candidates an
nounced their retirement.
Both Representatives Are Indorsed.
While awaiting a report from com
mittees in the state assembly the dele
gates from the various counties sepa
rated and occupied different sides of
the hall, the counties represented in
the First District going to the east
side, and those from the Second District
on the west.
Judge w. M. Colvlg, of Josephine
County, of the Republican Congress
ional .committee, called the meeting of
the First District to order and the
nomination was given to W. C. Haw
ley by acclamation. His name was
presented from a half a dozen counties
at the same instant. M. I Jones, of
Marion, was the first to mention Mr.
In the Second District assembly S. B.
Huston, of Multnomah. was elected
chairman, and Rev. C. E. Cline secured
the floor to pay a tribute to his friend.
Representative Ellis. The nomination
was seconded from various quarters of
An endeavor had been made by
friends of J. S. Dellinger. an Astoria
newspaper man, to develop sentiment
In his favor as a candidate against Mr.
Kills, and his name was presented by
Addison Bennett. It appeared, how
ever, that Mr. Delllnger's friends were
far outnumbered by those of the pres
ent Representative, and almost as soon
as Mr. Bennett resumed his seat, the
Clatsop County man withdrew in favor
of lSllis and the man from Pendleton
was indorsed by acclamation.
Representatives Ellis and Hawley de
livered short addresses, pledging them
selves to support the entire ticket as
suggested by the assembly and con
gratulating the Republicans of Oregon
on getting together again for unity
and harmonious action. They expressed
the belief that the efficiency of their
labors in behalf of Oregon would be en
hanced through the knowledge that the
party had been united in their state.
Judges Are Named.
Delegates representing the counties
of the various judicial. Senatorial and
Representative districts were asked to
assemble for making selections of suit
able candidates for the various offices
to be filled at the forthcoming primary
In the First Judicial District Jose
phine and Jackson counties united for
the nomination of Judge Calkins, of
Ashland, the present Incumbent, who
was appointed by Governor Benson.
In the Second Judicial District, Judge
J. S. Coke, of Coos County, is' a can
didate but has filed his nomination by
petition. He would have received the
Indorsement had he asked for it. He
is said to be friendly to the assembly.
Delegations composing the Second
Judicial District, made up of the
counties of Yamhill, Polk. Marlon.
linn and Tillamook, engaged in
one of the hottest contests of the
assembly in naming two candidates for
Judges for the primaries. Percy R.
KeHy. of Albany.jind I. H. Van Winkle,
of i.lnn. roceived the indorsement. They
barely defeated James McCain, of Mc

was chairman of the caucus. The total
number of votes cast was 363.

In the Seventh District no recom
mendation was uade. and it is prac
tically conceded that Judge W. L. Brad
Shaw, the Democratic Incumbent, will
be elected without opposition. Judge
Bradshaw has occupied the bench in
that section 18 years, and no Republi
can was to be found who desired to
undertake the task of defeating him.
In the Eleventh Judicial District
Judge R. R. Butler was forced to ac
cept .the indorsement apd make, the
race. ' The judge has served the people
of his district satisfactorily and It is
believed that no Democrat will attempt
to defeat him. His services were de
manded by the delegates and while
Judge Butler would have preferred aot
to have two candidates from Condon,
be could not make his wishes prevail.
H. L. Benson will make the race for

there is nothing unlucky in the num
ber. Everybody up there votes for

nomination for Joint Senator to L. E.
Bean, a brother" of Judge Robert S.
Bean, of the United States Court. C. L.

the Representative of Benton and Polk
counties in the Senate. Mr. Hawley is
one of the foremost Oregonians advo
cating the Interests of the stockgrow
ers. Louis G- Clarke received the Indorse
ment for Senator from the counties of
Multnomah. Clackamas and Columbia.
The action was the result of a caucus
of the delegates of the various counties,
t which the delegates from Clackamas
and Columbia protested against the
treatment they had received from the
bands of the Multnomah county assem
bly, which, they said, tied the hands of
the .delegates from Portland by in
structing them for Mr. Clarke. The
outside counties asserted that they had
rot had a hearing. After registering
their protest they were willing to
pledge their cordial support to the
tioralnit'oa and election of Mr. Clarke.
O. W. Eastham, of Clackamas, was a
candidate for the recommendation.
Morrow, Umatilla and Union counties
centered on 3. K.Wilson, of Athena, as
their Joint candidate for Senator, all
other candidates retiring from the
Curry County Man Named.
For Joint Representative from Coos
and Curry counties Herbert Hume, of
Curry County, was recommended, al
though there were no Curry County
delegates' in the assembly. The place
was conceded to that county because
the present Senator is from Coos
James Buchanan was selected as
Joint Representative from the counties
of Jackson and Douglas, while Henry
Nice was indorsed for the counties of
Polk and Lincoln. Tillamook and Yam
hill counties agreed on the name of

son, of Lake, and H. P. Belknap, of
Crook, for election as Representatives.

securing the Indorsements of the dele
gates from Morrow and Umatilla coun
ties for the Legislature, while Harney
and Malheur counties cheerfully nomi
nated W. H. Brooke as Representative.
C. A. Buckley, of Grass "Valley, was
the successful candidate for Represen
tative at the caucus of the Sherman,
Wheeler and Glllam delegations.
Hood River and Wasco each secured
a candidate for Representative, Alex
ander Stewart, of Wasco, being In
dorsed and Mr. Tate, of Hood River,
as Joint Representatives.
J. N. BRISTOL PRESIDES
(Continued From First Page.)
He went over Mr. Moores long record In
public life, and urged his selection would
be in the best Interests of the party.
Rev. C. E. Cline, of Multnomah, sec
onded the nomination of Mr. Moores.
George W. Stapleton, of Multnomah,
spoke in behalf of Mr. Bowerman. While
he was speaking a slip bearing the name
of another candidate was handed to him,
but he laid it on the table, saying that
he did not know anything about it.
R. V. Carter, of Lincoln, seconded the
nomination of Mr. Ackerman.
Tooze Nominates "Withycombe. "
Walter L. Tooze nominated James
Withycombe. of Corvallis. He spoke of
Mr. Withycombe's defeat by Governor
Chamberlain at the last state election,
as a "damnable political outrage." "What
man Is more deserving," he continued,
"than the man who has fought a losing
fight? Is some man more entitled to the
place because, perchance, he came from
Eastern or Southern Oregon? The man I
shall nominate comes from the State of
Oregon. He was for 12 years In. the ex
periment station at the Oregon Agri
cultural College, of which we are all so
proud. I intend to injure no one. to cast
reflections on no candidate. God knows
they are all brainy men. The question
is. Can they get the votes? Some of them
cannot. Withycombe will carry a large
element of the votes of the anti-assembly,
where our younger men cannot carry the
strength. The critical moment of this
convention has arrived. T. T. Geer sound
ed the note of warning when he said that
the opposition will center its fight in
November against the head of your
ticket. In nominating a Governor you
are to nominate a man who can go out
Into the state and secure the votes, pro
vided he is qualified, capable and honor
able. James Withycombe is such a man."
A. A. Jayne, of Hood River, seconded
the nomination of Dr. Smith. Mr. Jayne
said that the Hood River delegation
came unpledged to the assembly, and
after looking over the field had come to
the conclusion that the best man to sup
port for Governor was Dr. Smith.
' By this time loud calls were being heard
for a vote. H. P. Belknap, of Benton,
gained recognition, however, and spoke
briefly In behalf of Dr. Withycombe. He
said that the winning man would have
his support and, he hoped, that of every
bowerman Wins Victory.
It was 5:20 P. M. before the assembly
was ready to take up the balloting. Mr.
Bristol explained that while proxies

yet the majority of each delegation was
entitled to claim the votes of the missing
delegates. At 6:10 P. M. the results of
the first ballot were announced, the totals
giving Mr. Bowerman a majority of 31
votes. The announcement was received
After the motion to adjourn had been
passed and the delegates were leaving
the hall. Dr. Smith stepped into a cleared
space on the floor near the exit. Dr.
Smith said: "This choice has been made
with entire harmony. That should be
the keynote of this whole proposition
from A to Z. I think it is so with the
delegates and 'I assure you it is so with
me. I desire to make a motion that
the nomination of Mr. Bowerman be
Hardly had this announcement been
made when Mr. Ackermanv getting upon
a chair, said: "Gentlemen, I had a vague
notion that I was running here. I have
always been a Republican and always
expect to be. I hope this nominee will
be elected In November. I wish to second
the motion to make this nomination

when a motion to proceed to ballot car
ried. At 6:10 P. M. the result was made
Little time was consumed by the two
Congressional districts in deciding on
their recommendations for Represenia
ttves in Congress. The first district
placed the seal of approval on Its pres
ent representative. W. C. Hawley, by
unanimous voice. The delegates of the
second district took similar action with
regard to W. R. Ellis. J. S. Dellinger, of
Astoria, was named in the second, but he
withdrew in favor of Mr. Ellis.
Not until an adjourned session, which
began at 8 P. M., was the consideration
of other candidates taken up. Less time
was consumed in considering these, but
the rivalry continued close.
By 11:30 P. M.. when the assembly
adjourned. Frank W. Benson, of Rose
burg, had been declared the choice of
the assembly for Secretary of State;
Ralph W. Hoyt. of Portland, for State
Treasurer; L. R. Alderman, of Eugene,
for Superintendent of Public Instruc
tion; w. J. Clarke, of Gervais. for State
Printer, and J. N. Hart, of Baker City,
for Attorney-General. The assembly
will reconvene at 10 A. M., today to
complete the state ticket.
Harmony Is Shown.
. Most of the day was devoted to organi
zation and the drawing up of platform.
Heavy routine duties devolved upon the
various committees, and It was found Im
possible to economize time, inasmuch as a
regular order of business had to be fol
lowed. That harmony was to prevail became
evident the moment Judge M. C. George,
as chairman of the State Central Com
mittee, rapped for order and announced
selection of a temporary chairman. The
name of W. C. Bristol, of Portland, was
presented and he was immediately made
the choice of the assembly. No other
names were mentioned for the place.
When the committees, one on organiza
tion and -order of business, one on cre
dentials and one on resolutions, had been
named and set to work .there occurred a
long interval that was 'filled In by ad
dresses from delegates from many dis
tricts. And the dominant sentiment in
these addresses was active interest and
unwavering loyalty in the Republican
cause from this time on.

There have been several contests held recently in -which the win
ners have been awarded prizes in the form of Piano Checks and
many have f onnd that when presented at certain piano stores in whose
favor they were made ont, that prices had been boosted to cover these
prize checks or that the prize checks applied only on certain pianos,
which, though having extremely flashy cases, were extremely poor as
regards tonal qualities. Even when prize checks were deducted from
the sale price of these gaudy pianos, the prices were found altogether
In response to our advertisement to accept all piano prize checks,
regardless by whom issued or to whom 'payable, many prize . check
holders brought their piano checks to us and used them in the pur
chase of a dependable piano at our net prices, just as advertised.
The same piano that one of these small concerns asked a piano
check-holder $625 for, she found she could buy at Eilers Music House
for only $423 or exactly" $202 less, and at Eilers she still had the
privilege of deducting her piano check from this much lower price.
But this sensible buyer, after comparing this piano with several highest-grade
makes handled exclusively by Eilers Music House, correctly
decided that she could more advantageously buy a better piano hero
than this other firm's make. Nine celebrated and well-known piano
manufacturers have joined with Eilers Music House to accept any
piano check and apply it on the net prices at which their pianos are
sold by Eilers Music House.
This concession was readily secured by Eilers Music House, which
desired to maintain the confidence of the music-lovers of Oregon.
Thus are we enabled to give real face value for all prize piano checks
that have been issued by even these conscienceless dealers.
Bring your prize checks to Eilers Music Hons?. Here we accept
them the same as spot cash on the lowest net prices. Here are the very
best and most reliable pianos made.

had the honor to be elected a delegate
to the Republican State Assembly.
Confined to my house and unable to
attend the convention, I take the lib
erty of addressing a word to my fellow-delegates.
Success of this movement before the
people will depend upon the Judgment
that directs the nominations'. The mind
of every delegate should take in the
whole situation with a view of sug
gesting a ticket fit to command general
support. Not merely the personnel of
the ticket but the entire political situ
ation as it exists at this time should
be considered, with a view to concilia
tion and harmonious action. If it be
allowable I wish my vote to be cast by
the delegation for Dr. Andrew C. Smith
for Governor. He is eminently fit and
worthy, never has been identified with,
any faction; he la judicious and tact
ful and has talents that would honor
the office and the state.
In my Judgment, also, political ad
vantages of high value would be ob
tained by suggestion of the name of
Frank W. Benson for nomination of
Secretary of State and that of W. S.
Duniway for renomlnation for State
Printer. While these men have not
