DEMOCRATS TO BE HOST
JACKSOV CLCB TO HVTERTAIX
Committee Is Appointed to Greet
Champ Clark and Harmon.
West to Speak Soon.
A committee of five, consisting of
Robert A. Miller, F. S. Myers, John H.
Stevenson. Oglesby Toung and O. W.
Allen, was appointed at a meeting of
the Jackson Club last night to co-operate
wlU County Chairman Van
Duser, State Chairman Haney ana
State Committeeman Whidden In ar
ranging for the entertainment of any
Democratic celebrities who may visit
The appointment of the committee
was actuated by the fact that Champ
Clark, of Missouri. Speaker of the
House of Representatives, and Jud
son Harmon, Governor of Ohio, both
Presidential possibilities, are expected
to be In the state within the next
month or two. Senator Gore, of Okla
homa, who la on a lecture tour of the
West, and Is now at Eugene, will be
In Portland November 13. It was an
nounced, and an effort will be made
to Induce him to address the club mem
bers and all others who may wish to
be present. Should Senator Gore con
sent, a special meeting will be called.
The decision to appoint a single com
mittee was arrived at only after con
siderable discussion, many of the mem
bers, among them O. W. Allen. Oglesby
Toung and C. U Daggett, preferring that
two committee should be appointed,
one for Mr. Harmon and the other for
Mr. Clark. Others, principal among
them E. S. J. McAllister, Colonel Mil
ler and Mr. Haney, objected to this on
the ground that It contributed to fac
tional politics, and they finally won.
H B. Van Duxer, president of tha club,
waa lected by the meeting aa chair
man of the committee.
The debate gave E. B. J. McAllister
an opportunity to announce that while
he Is ready and willing to assist In the
entertainment of Judson Harmon, he
will bolt the Democratlo ticket should
the Ohio Governor receive the Demo
cratic nomination for President, be
raus he doe not bellev that Mr.
Harmon ha t heart the principle of
Democracy a expounded by Jackson
and Jefferson. '
Governor West, It waa announced,
will -be the principal speaker at the
meeting of the club the night of No
vember 17. John H. Stevenson urged
that the club pursue the policy of hav
ing frequent addresses from prominent
men. that we may show th people of
Portland and of Oregon that we are
not in politic merely for the sake of
office, but to obtain education and en
lightenment. Oglesby Toung and Mr. Stevenson,
both of whom are candidate for elec
tion aa delegates to th party National
convention, declared that they will. If
elected cast their ballota In conven
tion for the Presidential candidate In
dorsed by the majority of Oregon Dem
ocrats. Irrespective of what their per
sonal preferences may be. Mr. Toung
said, however, that In case the nomi

CAR SHORTAGE IS SEEN
WESTKRN" OREGON HIT BY COM
PLAINTS ROW FILED.
Heavy Demand for Coal Cars Said to
Be Cause of Present Situation
Worse Than Fonr Tears Ago.
SALEM. Or, Nov. . (SpeclaL)-A
car shortage even of a more serious
nature than that of 1907 la Indicated
In Wetern Oregon, from the great
number of complaint which have been
pouring Into the State Railroad Com
mission during tha past few weeks.
These complaints are registered from
point between the Blue Mountains
and-Huntington. The shortage Is ad
mitted by officials of the O.-W. R. &
N. Company, aa well as their inability
to meet the demand of the situation.
It Is said the shortage is due to
heavy demands for coal cars and an
inability to secure assistance from the
Oregon Short Line, the eastern con
nection of the navigation eompany'a
lines. Flat cars and stock crs seem
to be plentiful but boxcars are aa
scarce as four years ago. despite the
fact 'that the railroad official assert
every effort Is being exerted to re
lieve the situation and that the pres
ent supply Is being distributed aa
equitably as possible with every ef
fort made to avoid discrimination.
Advices from the Commission to
complainants has been to save their
rights under the reciprocal demurrage
law, which was designed to apply in
cases of this kind. The orders for
cars must be in writing and placed
with the agent nearest the point where
the cars are to be supplied. If the
railroad then falls to supply the cars
within the requisite time, as provided
by law, tbe company becomes liable
to the applicant in the sum of $2 per
day per car until supplied, aa well as
the actual damage suffered by the ap
plicant and attorney's fees for prosecu
tion for recovery.
-The constitutionality of the recip
rocal demurrage act has been upheld
by the Supreme Court of this state, and
It is also held that the act applies to
state as well as to interstate traffic
A writ of error has been sued out In
the United States Supreme Court, and
the case is pending there. The Com
mission has also advised shippers to
ubs care in preserving evidence of
damages suffered and to keep a com
plete record of the applications and
time orders were filed.

"We asked the Council ourselves to
fix a date for filing," said E. a Bron
augh. "and it looks to me as If it were
up to us to make good."
Members of the revision committee,
George B. Cellars. H. E. Reed and Mr.
Bronaugh, have worked almost unre
mittingly this week on the different
sections of the charter that required
most careful revision, and the results
of their work havo boen taken in hand
at the evening sessions of the com
mission and carried through, so that
they now havo comparatively few more
sections to handle. I
No meeting of the whole commission
will be called tonight. The revision
committee will continue its work to
day and will endeavor to place the sec
tions that remain to be considered in
such form that the- greater part of the
work may be disposed of In the session
that has been called for Monday night.
Nearly all of the discussion last night
was in revision of sections that have
been previously considered.
Of chief Interest were the provisions
adopted for the signing of initiative and
referendum petitions. Signatures of
only 10 per cent of the voters are re
quired. Instead of IB per cent as pro
vided in the present charter, and 80
days Instead of 15 are allowed In which
to secure the signatures.
Petitions are to be kept mt the City
Hall, however, and all signers will be
required to be identified and to sign at
that place. It Is believed that this pro
vision will eliminate the possibility of
fraudulent signature. Similar provi
sions are made for the signing of re
monstrances against franchls.

TeaJB ago In Franca. Being a Jew, Hert

of Vienna to report the trial at Paris.
He became so much absorbed In the
case that his reports soon became
After the- trial he continued his In
terest and soon visited all the principal
countries of Europe, arranging for del
egates to a Zlonlat congress to be held
at Vienna. The great plan of his life
was to have the Jews return to Pales

first man to do much for a definite
home of the Jews.
