also in the belief that the Estacada
car was approaching at full speed and
that before he jumped he neglected to
turn off the power.
Judging from the time taken by the
line car to traverse the distance from
the point at which it was sighted to
the moment of contact with the stand
ing Cazadero car. it could not have
been proceeding at a higher rate of
peed than 20 miles an hour. Train
men last night conjectured that Fields
had shut off power before jumping but
had omitted to apply hl3 brakes.
Reports received in Portland Satur
day night by the officers of the com
pany led to the belief that a very
serious accident had occurred. A hos
pital ear was made up and Dr. Rockey
and Traffic Manager Hunt proceeded
to the spot. A record run was made
and Boring reached slightly over an
hour from the time of the collision.
Every praise is given by the Injured
to the company's officials. Xo attempt
was made to get any statements from
the injured until after they had been
cared for. The' board of Inquiry has
hot yet been held.

was one of the old type and was di
vided by a partition, in addition to the
two vestibules. Oddly enough those
sitting to the. rear of the partition
were those most seriously hurt.
That the injuries of a number were

Frank Perkins. Mr. Perkins is re
ported as having had his wound
dressed and then proceeded fishing.
As the greater number, of those hurt
lived at Estacada a special car was
made up to take them to their homes.
None was hurt sufficiently to be taken
to a hospital. The Portland victims
reached the city yesterday afternoon.
Conductor Hyapp was the official on
the rear end of the car. He was un
injured. A later car from Boring separated
the wrecked cars and hauled them into
a siding. Company reports last night
said they were not seriously damaged

Everything Indicates Indorsement
by Roosevelt of His Successor.
"Will Support Regulars or In
surgents Chosen by Party.
' BY HARRY J. BROWN.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, July 24. Theodore Roosevelt
will be a factor; and a very important
factor, in the campaign this Fall. As
to where he will be prominent, and
where his influence will be most felt,
nothing definite can be said at this
time beyond the announcement already
made that he will speak for Senator
Lodge in Massachusetts, and for Sen
ator Beveridge in Indiana. It goes
without saying, however, that he will
be a conspicuous figure in the cam
paign In New York, his own state.
Ever since his return from Africa
there has been a vast amount of specu
lation as to what Theodore Roosevelt
would do politically. Thus far he has
not exposed his hand, but has left all
factions in the dark. Neither the in
surgents nor the regulars are enthu
siastic over what has happened thus
far, for the insurgents are piqued at
his failure to espouse their cause, and
the regulars are disgruntled at his fre
quent conferences with insurgents.
Both Factions Disappointed.
It was the fond expectation of the
Insurgents that Colonel Roosevelt, on
his arrival, or soon thereafter, would
come out in strong support of their at
titude, and declare the progressive
movement to be real Republicanism.
The regulars, on the other hand, felt
confident that he would look over the
situation, and then unqualifiedly In
dorse President Taft. and condemn
those who have thrown obstacles In
the path of the new Administration.
His failure to do either of these things
has caused discontent among both fac
tions. The recent announcement of Colonel
Roosevelt that he will take up the
cause of no man until he is nominated
will have, a tendency to dispel existing
disgruntlement, for that announcement
means, if it means anything, that the
ex-President will not "butt in" on state
campaigns until the party, through
primaries or conventions, has recorded
its will and nominated its candidates.
It means further that he will not
recognize factions In ' the Republican
party, for the factional fights will
be setlted by the primaries or by the
conventions. When the nominations
have been made, however, and the
tickets are before the people. Colonel
Roosevelt, as any other Republican,
will be free from just criticism if he
urges and aids in the election of men
nominated by the Republican voters
of any state.
Republican First of All.
It is well known that Theodore
Roosevelt Is first of all a Republican:
he -hopes for the continued success of
the Republican party; hopes to see a
Republican Senate and Republican
House of Representatives while the
Presidency is Republican. And It wJl
be found that his Republicanism holds
him above factionalism. When the cam
paign actively opens, he will undoubt
edly be found supporting regulars here
and Insurgents there, but always men
who have won the Republican nomina
tion. Precedent, of course, would require
that the ex-President remain quiescent,
now that he has retired from two terms
in the White House, but Theodore
Roosevelt never cared for precedent,
and seldom followed It. It would be
contrary to his nature to remain silent
In the midst of a campaign that ad
mittedly means much to the Republican
party. His very nature would rebel at
the thought of such a thing. He is too
good a politician to have a regard for
this particular precedent, especially
when he feels, and with good reason,
no doubt, that by participating he can
render valuable service to his party.
Colonel Will Aid Party Men.
The Republican party has done much
for him, and, while he has done much
in return, he will not be content to
rest on past records, but will strive
still further to aid the men of that
party who need and who desire his
By following the course he has out
lined. Colonel Roosevelt is likely to
accomplish much In the direction Of
bringing together the warring factions
of the Republican party. To be con
sistent, he must urge the support of
candidates, not because they are In
surgents, or because they are regulars,
bat because they are Republicans. In
supporting candidates of both factions
he will demonstrate his own hope for
a reunited party, and will place both
factions under obligation.
When the proper time comes there is
every reason to expect that Colonel
Roosevelt will voice his approval of
President Taft and the present Admin
istration. It has been said that this
announcement will be made before he
starts Into the campaign. There may
be some details on which he, at heart,
may differ with his successor in the
White House: some things, no doubt,
have been done differently from
what they would have been under a
Roosevelt Administration, but. in the
main, the achievements of the present
Administration have been such as to
justify and warrant the approval of the
ex-President, and there Is every reason
why he should express that approval in
very plain terms.
Taft Carries Out "Policies."
Towards the close of the last Ad
ministration most of . the so-called
Roosevelt policies remained yet unacted
upon by Congress. The situation was
such that President Roosevelt could no
longer get what he asked at the hands
of the legislative branch of the Gov
ernment. On the contrary. Congress
showed a disposition to disregard the
recommendations of the Executive.
This situation was fully appreciated
and understood by the President, and
before Mr. Taft was nominated at Chi
cago. President Roosevelt expressed
the frank opinion .that some other
man could do more than he to promote
those very policies, and bring about
their consummation In the form' of
Reviewing the record of the past
session of Congress. Colonel Roosevelt
is bound to approve the work of Presi
dent Taft. and to asknowledge publlelv
that President Taft has succeeded
where he himself failed. For the
record of the recent session would
never have been made but. for the in
sistence of the President, and that

There is nothing that Roosevelt can
do but approve the Taft Administra
tion, and approve the work of Con
gress. State Fights Avoided.
Starting out on this basis, and sup
porting Republicans, regardless of
whether they be regulars or insurgents,
Theodore Roosevelt will be a mighty
factor in the campaign, and In the
main will help the men he indorses.
His unprecedented popularity is guar
antee enough that he will be a power
on the stump, and the eagerness with
which his support has been sought
by men of both factions is further evi
dence of their belief that his indorse
ment is worth much. And the very
fact that he Is not mixing up in state
fights (outside of New York), but is
content to allow the voters. In conven
tion and in the primaries, to select
their own candidates, will make him
the Btronger, for that will relieve him
of the charge, hurriedly made, and
without justification, that he Is "butting
In" here, there and everywhere. His
only offense of this nature has been in
Massachusetts, and his lifelong friend
ship for Senator Lodge explains that.
Nowhere else has he indicated his pur
pose of taking a hand prior to the
nominations; on the contrary, he has
repeatedly declined invitations to par
