Nomination of Woodrow Wison for
the Presidency meets with the general
approval of Oregon Democrats, who
have arranged a monster ratification
meeting in the Armory, Tenth and
Couch streets, for next Saturday night
The list of speakers and other de
tails for the demonstration have not
been completed but Governor West will
be one of those to make an address.
' The average Democrat here con
fesses his actual first choice for the
nomination was William Jennings
Bryan, his Idol for the last 18 years.
although he willingly accepts the New
Jersey man as the party s standard
bearer. With the large majority of
Oregon Democrats, Wilson always was
lecond choice. The fact that Bryan not
only made possible the nomination of
llson, but will give the nominee his
earnest support, is sufficient for
Bryan's friends here, who are unheal
tatingly pledging their support to the
head of the ticket.
Talrd Party Need Gone."
"The nomination of Wilson makes
the Democratic party the new party,
said Bert E. Haney, chairman of the
Democratic State Central Committee,
yesterday. "It has settled for all time
the question whether the Democratic
party Is the party which represents the
people or the one that represents the
privilege-seeking class. I regard the
nomination of Wilson an ideal one.
"Bryan with bis remarkable strength,
even If he had been nominated, might
have been subject to the criticism from
his enemies that his real purpose was
to secure the nomination. As It Is,
neither he nor the Democratic nominee
. Is subject to that charge.
"The necessity for the third party
coming Into existence is gone. The
- Democratic party Is ready to welcome
to It all who believe In the principles
that are best enunciated by William
Jennings Bryan In his IS years of ac
tive work In behalf of a great cause.
With the progressive movement in Ore
gon as strong as it is, I feel sure Wil
son will carry this state In November.
Victory Is) Expected.
"With Woodrow Wilson as oi-t candi
date." said H. B. Tan Duzer, chairman
of the Democratic County Central Com
" mlttee. "we can fully expect to win a
victory next f ail, his nomination, al
ter a contest, which was surely one of
the 'survival of the fittest.' is, I am
sure, very gratifying to the Democracy
of Oregon. After the Chicago conven-
tton, our party success next Fall cer
tainly lay in the nomination of a pro
" erressive at Baltimore. That the con
' vention finally named Governor Wil
son, a clean and brilliant man, for
President; is extremely gratifying. It
has materially strengthened our state
and county tickets. We are confident
" of carrying Oregon next Fall."
"There's nothing to it but the shout

tary of the Democratic county organ!
' xation. "I have yet to meet the first
1 Democrat who will not support Wil
, "Everybody is satisfied with the tick-
et." commented F. S. Myers, vlce-presi-'
dent and active member of the Jack
son Club. "It was the best selection
- that could have been made from the
candidates before the convention.
' Bryan made and won a wonderful fight.
which makes him a bigger man be
' fore the people today than If he had
been nominated."
. Bryasi Gives Credit.
"I was thoroughly Imbued with the
idea that Bryan would finally be nom-
- inated," said D. M. Watson, candidate
for Presidential Elector on the Demo
cratic ticket and long personal friend
of the Nebraskan. "From the begin-
nlng I considered that Bryan was the
strongest candidate that could pos-
. sibly be nominated. But we have a pro
, gressive In Wilson to whom I shall
give my hearty support not only as a
- progressive Democrat, but as a candi
date for Presidential Elector on my
party's ticket."
Democrats do not hesitate to give
Bryan large credit for the nomination
: of Wilson. They feel that the New
Jersey Governor could not have been
nominated but for the fight Bryan
made in the convention. The services
of Bryan on the convention floor, con
rede the friends of both Bryan and
' Wilson, served first to make impos
sible the nomination of a reactionary
and. secondly, paved the way for the
nomination - of the progressive that
Wilson is.
The Democrats argue that the nomi
nation of Wilson is not only a dis
: tinct victory for the progressive forces
bnt wipes out every possible excuse
for the organization of another poltt
, leal party by Roosevelt to be known
as the National Progressive party or
any other political designation. For
these reasons. Democrats do not think
" the proposed third party will be or
ganised. T. R.W ABSSBsnwItioa Blasted."
They base their belief not alone on
the absence of a good excuse for pro-
ducing another party at this time. In
- their opinion, they have stolen Roose
velt's ammunition. This leads them to
conclude that the ex-President will
not want, to undertake the organisa
tion of a party whose membership
necessarily would have to be restricted
to the progressive element within the
Republican party. And even then,
point out the Democrats, Roosevelt
. would have to proceed without the co
operation of such progressive Repub-
lican leaders as Senators La Follette,
. Borah and Cummins and Governors
Had ley and Deneen, who have "an-
. nounced that they will not be parties
to the organization of or affiliate with
the. proposed, new party., ;

Little Interest Taken In Johnson
Flynn Bout Ben, Henderson to
Rejoin Team at Sacramento.
Batcher Has Batting Slump.
Southpaw Harry Suter came within
the radius of the McCredie "S. S." radio
graph field yesterday when Jib arrived
in Portland to rejoin, as he thought,
the San Francisco Seals, for be was
not aware that . Portland had pur
chased him from Manager Reldy. Suter
worked a portion of one game for the
Seals, after patching up his salary dif
ferences, and was then called to Kan
sas City by his mother's death.
1 am immensely pleased with my
transfer to Portland," said the port
sider. "My wife Is a Portland girl and
I like this city. I am tired of the San
Francisco ball team and my only wish
is that McCredie lets me, pitch two
games against the Seals when they
show here next week.
"San Francisco put me In a portion
of one game and when I walked two
men in one inning on account of lack
of work they Jerked me. I guess Reldy
figures Im through, hence his applica
tion for waivers."
Xha dispatches telling of the Suter
purchase have been meager, but It de
velops that Mac got him by refusing
to grant his waiver. Four other man
agers agreed with Reldy . thAt Suter
could do them no good and granted
sanction. The waiver price in the
Coast League Is 3600.
This is one of the few Instances
wherein the waiver procedure has ful
filled its purpose. Generally when one
team . in the Coast League desires to
railroad a subject down the ladder the
ratification is unanimous, but In this
case McCredie needed pitchers too bad.
ly to let Suter slide.
Oakland, be it recalled, secured Gus
Hetling from Portland by refusal to
waive A couple of seasons ago and
Wolverton's judgment is receiving
hearty Justification. Now that Hetling
is being played steadily at third he
has improved wonderfully with the
stick. In fact. Is second In the league,
with an average of .336, and Is fielding
on a par with the best.
If the betting Is a criterion, Port
land boxing fans are decidedly apa
thetic of the Johnson-FIynn battle set
for tomorrow at Las Vegas, N. M.
Not a single wager had been placed
at any of the local marts up to last
night, and, furthermore, not one Port
land enthusiast, so far as could be
ascertained, had left to view the fun
from the ringside.
"I have heard of only one boxing
bet," said Ed Dietrich, of Schiller's.
That was placed on tne iigntweignt
struggle, with Wolgast 10 to 6 favor
ite. I expect to see considerable spec
ulation - on this battle, but. on the
heavyweight event none. Everybody
knows that Johnson should lick Flynn
easily,, and this strange 'dope' from the
training" camps giving Flynn a good
chance . doesn't look Just right."

If the Coast League Beavers are to I
equal their last road-trip record they
will have to munch off five games of
the seven at Sacramento this week.
They lit hard upon the poor Senators
yesterday. ' On the previous foretgn
trip McCredie won four of six at Sac
ramento, two of seven at Vernon and
three of five at San Francisco, giving
him two of the three series and nine
wins and nine losses. Thus far on this
trip he has won six of 14 games, two
of seven at Vernon, three of six at
Los Angeles and one in one at Sao
ramento. Four of the remaining six at Van
Burentown will give ua the required
JO wins and 10 losses to equal the last
Invasion- mark. The July 4 double
header makes the extra game at the
California capital.- Ordinarily six com
plete the series.
Benny Henderson wrote local base
ball officials several days ago to have
his blue uniform forwarded to him at
Sacramento. He confided to a friend
in another epistle that McCredie had
ordered him to report at Sacramento.
If Ben can once get off on a winning
Btreak there Is every reason to believe
that he will keep himself in condition.
In which event he will prove one of
the greatest fllngers In the circuit.

"Butcher is a wonder in a class AA
