With the coming of the rainy season
in Oregon, the Forest Service has
planned the seeding of between $000
and C000 acres of burned-over lands

acres being situated at the Bull Run

The largest amount of planting is

south of Tillamook, and adjacent to the
dairying district. The district was
turned over in 1857 and has never be
come reforested. It Is now a mat-of
ferns and underbrush. On most of the
area Eastern hardwoods will be plant
ed, hickory, white oak and chestnut be
ing the favorites. Most of these species
are now being grown in the front yards
of the ranchers in that section, which
gives the Federal officers encourage
ment in the belief that they will thrive.
The ferns and underbrush will be
cleared away with mattocks so that
seed may be given a chance to grow.

NEW YORK, Sept. 27. Not a brick

any of the important building opera
tions under way in New York City. A
lockout of 10.000 bricklayers for al
leged violations of their agreement in
ordering strikes against a member of

at daybreak today. The employers will
not try to fill the places of the men

bricklayers' work is concerned.
If. at the end of that period, the
situation remains the same bricklay

ably be controlled, one way or the other,
by a small margin. This is the best
Judgment of the campaign managers on
both sides, each of course claiming that
his own party will be victorious in No
vember, though at the present moment
there Is more optimism in Democratic
circles than is found around Republican
headquarters. Publicly, the Democratic
campaign managers are declaring they
will control the next House by from 50
to 100 members. No specific figures are
given out at Republican headquarters,
where It Is frankly admitted that the
party is facing a harder struggle than
It has had on Its hands in a congress
ional year in a very long time. Never
theless, Republican leaders entertain a
belief, strongly akin to a hope, that the
next House will be Republican. They
are willing to concede the majority will
be less than in the present House.
East Presents Hardest Problem.
Strange ao It may seem, the Republi
cans are more fearful of losing ground
in the big and Important states of the
East than they are in the insurgent
West. Three months ago, before the
primaries and nominating conventions
had been held, these same Republican
managers feared the West would prove
their weakest point. But at that time
they expected to renominate many reg
ular members of he present House, and
nticipatd that these regulars would be
nifed at the polls by Insurgents. It
as transpired in states where insur
gency Is strong that Insurgents have
been nominated in place of regulars, and
late reports from the West convey the
Impression that the Insurgent nominees
will be generally supported by both
Ings of the party, the voters, as a rule
being willing to abide by the result of
primaries or conventions. '
In California and J In Washington this
is not reported to be particularly true,
but the normal Republican majority in
those states is so large that the cam
paign managers have hopes .that all Re-
publican nominees will be elected. It
la merely a hope, however.
New England Causes Worry.
Following the Democratic victory in
Maine, the Republican Congressional
campaign managers have become very
uneasy about New England and New
York. Reports from Massachusetts are
decidedly alarming, and there appears to
be prospects that the Democrats may
capture three or four Congressional dis
tricts in that state that are now repre
sented by Republicans. There may bo

ROOSEVELT ISSUE DODGED
Archbishop Glennon Very Diplomatic
ST. LOUIS. Mo., Sept. 27. (Special.)
His Grace, Archbishop John J. Glen
non, of St. Louis, who "found It Im
possible to attend" a banquet given
by the Knights of Columbus of Peoria,
111., at which Colonel Theodore Roose
velt would be the honored guest, was
most diplomatic when interviewed in
the Peoria Sun. He was all smiles
and made the calm dignity that Is char
acteristic of him.
When asked if he had refused to at
tend the banquet at Peoria, his Grace
appeared thoughtful for a moment, and
"Why, I believe I did have an invi
tation from the Knights at Peoria
which I declined." "I also have several
invitations from other places to attend
similar affairs," continued the Arch
"Would the fact that Colonel Roose
velt is to be at the banquet influence
your Grace to decline?" the Archbishop
"Now really, I could not say anything
about that," smiled the Archbishop. He
was then asked If he thought that the
threatened refusal of the priests of Pe
oria and Rockport dioceses was because
Colonel Roosevelt would be at the ban
quet. In reply he declared fie knew
not what prompted the clergy's action.
A similar situation will arise upon
the occasion of Colonel Roosevelt's" visit

tions to the breakfast to be given to
Colonel Roosevelt by the Business Mens
League on the morning of October 11
are being prepared by Secretary W. F.

BORROWERS TO BE LISTED
Credit Bureau Decided On to Stop
WASHINGTON, Sept. 27. In order to
prevent corporations, firms and Indi
viduals from borrowing to the extent of
their credit in, their own cities, then ne
gotiating elsewhere and doing the same.
Controller of the Currency Murray has
decided upon the establishment of a cen
tral credit bureau in Washington, In
which will be recorded all such borrow
ings from National banks.
The credit bureau- will be located in
the office of the Controller. The neces
sity for its establishment arises from
the fact that very often the local bor
rowings of institutions are to the extent
of their ability to pay, and if obligations
of which the National Bank Examiners
have no knowledge exist in other dis
tricts, the effect is to impair the solvency
of the National bajiks, holding the paper.
Many examiners already have organ
ized Individual bureaus, which show the
borrowings of firms or individuals in his
own district. They have been very use
ful In assisting the examiners to deter
mine the value of commercial paper and
other1 obligations held by the National
banks. Controller Murray Is expanding
this system Into a National one, by
which private Information of the re
Eources and borrowings of every firm,
partnership or corporation will be . ord
ed in Washington and confidentially ex
changed between the examiners.

LOS ANGELES. Sept. 27. (Special.)
The long expected storm against Pln

broke in full force today at the session
of the American Mining Congress. '
"Socialist." "Dreamer," "Honest, but

hurled at the head of the deposed for

Coloradoan Starts Ball Rolling.
Ed. F. Browne, of Aspen, Colo.,
started the expression of disfavor to
Pinchot by presenting a resolution, de
claring that the withdrawal of all coal
lands from entry In the Western states
and "an ill-considered law attempting
to segregate the coal beneath from
the surface rights" would destroy the
great mining Interests of the country
and the proposition to lease the min
eral lands "Is rank socialism adopted
from the laws of New Zealand and
Australia and this man who advocates
the action Is a Socialist."
Representative Smith, of Bakersfield,
fiercely attacked "Over-lordlsm by the
Federal Government as to natural re
sources. He was cheered to tne ecno.
Ex-Representative C. A. Barlow, of
Bakersfield, attacked Pinchot and his
"Pinchot is a good man but thorough
ly Impractical as to oil," he declared.
The delegates shouted applause. Bar
low said Pinchot's ideas led to the
United States fixing the price of oil and
would abrogate the laws of demand
and supply and would end our govern
ment. Pinchot Is Misgdluctl.
T. A. O'Donnell. a Los Angeles oil
operator, declared himself anti-Plnchot.
"Pinchot Is honest but misguided, he
said. "I favor the oil men's associat
ing with the Congress and the passing
of some resolution of natural resources
and conservation as applied to the oil
business here. But i am forever
against the drifting of the Government
toward a bureaucratic supervision of
Western mining and forest industries." .
That the shouts and cheers which
greeted Pinchot's speech last night,
were tributes to the man personally
rather than to the theories and ideals
of conservation which he enunciated,
was Indicated today by the introduc
tion of resolutions which denounced the
land withdrawal plans of the conserva
tionists as "mere sham and pretense, '
and condemned proposed conservation
legislation, "which tends to make min
ing men and other citizens of the United
States lesseees of, or tribute payers to.
