Resolutions' Condemn Dele
gates Who Supported Taft
Methods in Any Manner.
Ackerson. Coo, Boyd, Carey, Hale
and Swift Commended for Voting
in Accordance With Oregon's
Choice lor President.
Resolutions adopted unanimously at
the meeting of the National Progres
sive Club and dealing with the action
of Oregon's delegates to the Kepubll-t-an
Rational convention were not as
drastic as expected. They dealt large
ly in general terms but reviewed the
votes of the Individual members of the
delegation on questions coming before
the convention and forming a part of
the Roosevelt "programme" of organi
sation and control of that body.
The resolutions were signed by San
field Macdonald. Lute C. Pease, Olive
M. Hickey and Dr. H. R. Biersdorf, four
of the five members of tne committee.
the fifth member. O. W. Griffin, not
affixing his signature. At the outset,
the resolutions give the detailed vote
for President In this state, showing
that Roosevelt received a plurality of
" nearly 6500. Reference is made to the
pre-election pledges of the different
delegates and an interview by Thomas
UcCusker. published in a Chicago news
paper, in which the Portland man said
six of the ten delegates from Oregon
would switch from Roosevelt to Taft or
t-a Follette at the first opportunity.
O piquing, the resolutions were as fol
lower iL.-mberlnr the use by Delegate McCus
ker of Roosevelt's name, and remembering
the tenor of his oath as a delegate, your
?ommlttee believes that no more convincing
evidence of Delegate McCusker's Insincerity
rould be offered; and in so far as he spoke
truly for other Oregon delegates who would
witch from Roosevelt to Taft or La Fol
ette ... at the llrst opportunity." vj
aelieve that the action of such delegates
iso should be condemned.
Loyalty la Tested.
The loyalty of the Oregon Republican
delegates was tested In two important mat
ters coming before the convention. 'The
Srst was the election of a temporary
chairman. It was clearly understood by all
that, Sllhu Root represented the standpat,
snythlng-to-beat Roosevelt element. Oov
;rnor McGovern, of Wisconsin, represented
the progressives, tt Is generally conceded
lhat the election of McGovern would have
meant the nomination of Roosevelt. When
Oregon's vote was called. Delegates Camp
bell. Bynon and 8mith voted for s'and
patlsm, or in direct support of the enemies
jf Oregon's choice for President.
Delegate McCusker was present, but sided
with the enemies of Roosevelt by not vot-
r'we are pleased to name Delegates Acker
ton. Coe. Boyd. Carey. Hall and Swift as
voting on the side of progress Ivlsm vot
ing in accordance with their pledge. In sup
port of the cause of Oregon's choice for
President. . i
The second important matter coming be
fora the convention was the motion of Gov
ernor Had ley. of Missouri, to substitute a
minority report for the majority report of
the credentials committee, which. In effect,
was to take from the temporary rollcall
as made up by the credentials committee,
the fraudulent Taft delegates and to sub
stitute the Roosevelt delegates, in certain
contested states. Ex-Congressman Watson,
of Indiana, moved to table Governor Had
ley"s motion, and we And Delegates Carey,
Campbell. Bynon. McCusker and Smith vot
ing to table the motion, and Ackerson, Coe,
Boyd. Hall and Swift voting against Con-'
gressman Watson's motion. In other words,
Carey. Campbell, Bynon, Smith and McCus
ker assisted the Taft steam roller.
Arguments Are Useless.
Tour committee has no comment to offer
upon the various sophistical arguments of
returning delegates1 to the effect that "There
was really no steam roller, after all." or
that the stesm roller was "Justified," thst
anyway not much merit existed in most of
the Poosevelt contests," and therefore the
convention was "honest enough"; that
Roosevelt would have been nominated "If he
had not bungled": that La Follette would
have been nominated If something hadn't
happened; that Roosevelt's loyal supporters
"rulnnd his chances" by protesting against
fraud; thst there was "trickery" in the
naming of McGovern as temporary chairman,
but no "trickery" in packing the convention
with fraudulent delegates: that care as to
"precedent" and "parliamentary practice" is
mora Important tha.i smaihlng precedent
and practices thst are invoked to support
fraud and theft, and that all citizens who
dare to criticise a disloyal delegate are
"narrow minded." "simple minded," "little
dogs" or "liars."
In conclusion, your committee desires to
emphasize the fact that this matter has
nothing to do with partisanship for any
leader; we believe It to be simply a ques
tion of principle: The faithfulness of an
elected official to the letter and spirit of his
platform and oath of office.
The original motion, adopted at a
former meeting, calling for the ap
pointment of the committee submitting
the resolutions, provided for the con
demnation not only of McCusker. but
of Coe and Ackerson for the reason
that the latter two not only remained in
the convention and failed to vote for
Roosevelt, according to their instruc
tions, but also neglected to give their
votes to Senator Borah, who received
the popular vote in this state as the
party's choice for Vice-President.

Treasury Department Refuses
Permit Nickname for City.
SAN FRANCISCO. July 10. "Frisco"
as an abbreviation of the name of this
city baa been placed officially under the
ban of the Treasury Department of the
United States, and an attempt to use
it has put several transcontinental rail
roads to considerable expense and more
nconvenience. Customs regulations
provide that goods shipped by rail in
bond must be sealed in the cars, and
July 1 a new regulation provided that
n automatic tin seal bearing the print
ed destination of the car be used.
All but one of the transcontinental
railroads permitted the manufacturers
to abbreviate the name of this port,
and. when the customs authorities re
fused to pass cars so sealed, were
forced to borrow from their more near
ly correct rival.

(c fc NATURE'S
The very great majority of persona need a tonio In the Spring or early
Summer. The system undergoes a change at this season and the entire
physical machinery is disturbed. The general bodily weakness, a tired,
worn-out feeling, fickle appetite, poor digestion, a half sick feeling and a
general run-down condition of the system, show that the blood is weak or
anaemic, and a blood purifying tonio is needed to build up the deranged
system and enrich the blood. The use of S. S. 8. at this time may save
you from a long spell of sickness, and it will certainly prepare you for the
long, hot Summer. - Many people have put off using a tonio until the system
became so weakened and depleted it could not successfully throw off disease
germs, and have paid for the neglect with a spell of fever, malaria or soma
other debilitating sickness. S. S. S. is Nature's ideal tonic. It is a
composition of the extracts and juices of roots, herbs and barks which
Bcience and experience have proven are best fitted for a tonic to the humaa
system. It contains no minerals of any kind and is therefore perfectly safe
for persons of any age. S. S. S. tones np the stomach and digestion, rids
the system of that tired, worn-out feeling, and imparts vigor and strength
to every part of the body. It purines and enriches the blood, stimulates
the secreting and excreting members to better action, quiets the over
strained nerves, and makes one feel better in every way.
