Backers of Wisconsin Senator
May Espouse Demo
cratic Cause.
XomJnee Prepares Message to Send
Before Xatlonal Committee Mon
day Clark Is Expected at
Luncheon Today.
SEAGIRT. N. J, July 12. Charles R.
Crane, of Chicago, who contributed
heavily to Senator la Follette s cam
palgn fund, and Charles Van Hlse,
president of the University of wiscon
sin-. Senator La Follette's ardent sup
porter prior to the Chicago conven
Hon. will take luncheon tomorrow with
Governor Woodrow Wilson, a short
time before the expected arrival of
Speaker Champ Clark.
Close friends of the Governor-said
today that Mr. Crane had transferred
his preference from the Wisconsin
Senator to Governor Wilson and would
be willing: to do all he could to bring
about the success of the Democratic
ticket. As one of the original con
tributors and the donor of the largrest
sum to the La Follette campaign fund,
Mr. Crane helped make possible the
Senators light for the Republican
nomination. His Indicated espousal of
Governor Wilson's cause is hailed as
an index to the sentiment among the
La Follette followers.
' Clark May Be Present, . Too.
Van Hlse has been for years a warm
supporter of Senator La Follette. It
is not unlikely that Crane and Van
Hlse will meet Speaker Clark here to
morrow afternoon.
Mr. Clark, the Governor said, might
discuss legislation now. before the
House he did not know. If Mr. Clark
brought the topic up of his own ini
tiative it would be discussed, he said.
Governor Wilson conferred late into
the afternoon with Robert S. Huds
peth. William F. McCombs. Josephus
Daniels. North - Carolina s National
committeeman, and E. E. Grosscup,
Democratic state chairman of New
Jersey, on the message which he will
send Monday to the National commit
tee In Chicago. When the conference
ended Governor Wilson said there had
not been time to consider all the points
and that the message might be modi-
fled at a meeting tomorrow.
McCombs Probable Choice.
' One of the National committeemen
who enjoys the Governor's close friend
ship was of the opinion tonight that
the Governor would recommend Mr.
McCombs as National chairman and ad
vise against the division of authority
In directing the campaign between the
National committee and a campaign
committee. Even at this late hour,
he said, the Governor had not made a
positive choice for treasurer of the
committee or for chairman of the fi
nance committee. '
The tentative plan to .have the
party's National headquarters In Chi
cago may be changed if a suggestion
made by Mr. McCombs this afternoon
Is followed.
"I think New York would be a good
place for the headquarters," he said.
"Of course we should want to have
an office at Chicago and another in
the West"

Klamath County Shows Rapid Devel

That Klamath County is destined to
become one of the leading dairy sec

pressed yesterday by E. T. Judd. chief
deputy of the State Dairy and Food
Commissioner's office, who returned a
few days ago from Klamath Falls
where, in company with Professors
Hlslop and Potter, of the Oregon Agri
cultural College, he addressed meetings
of dairymen and found that the move
ment inaugurated some time ago by the
Klamath Falls Chamber of Commerce
to develop the dairy resources of that
section is meeting with the hearty sup
port of dairy and cattle men.
Mr. Judd addressed meetings at. Bon
ansa. Fort Klamath, Klamath Falls and
Merrill on various phases of the dairy
industry, dwelling especially upon the
Importance of using only the best dairy
cows. He also referred to the prac
tical value of adopting the latest meth
ods in the handling of milk and cream.
Professor Potter advised the raising of
hogs in connection with dairying and
Professor Hislop spoke on the working
of soils, with special reference to loa
der crops.
"Klamath County should become one
of the leading dairy sections of Ore

Klamath they are completing one of
the most Improved creameries to be

hardly be surpassed anywhere. At all
of the meetings I attended I found the
same interest being shown in the de

of this advancement is due to the ef

Italian Is Wounded by Divorcee He
Refused to Marry.
Angered because of his refusal to
marry, Susie A. Owens, a divorced
woman, yesterday morning shot Charles
Celestino, a young Italian living at 84
Second street. The bullet from a 82-
caliber revolver passed - through Cel-
estlno's stomach. She then rushed
over to the county Jail, surrendered
herself and was locked up. -
The woman presented a sorry ap
pearance when she arrived at the
Courthouse. Her face wss torn and
bleeding and one of her ears appeared
to have been nearly ripped off. She re
celved her injuries, she declared, from
tne nanas ana leet or reter celestino,
father, and Joseph Celestino. brother,
of the man she . shot. She said that
they set upon and beat and kicked her
terribly immediately after the shot was
fired and while their kinsman was
lying prostrate and groaning on the
porch of the Celestino home at the
address given.
Miss Owens was Mrs. Susie A. Snyder
ntil June 20 last, when she secured by
default a divorce from H. E. Snyder.
She told Matron Cameron, of the County
Jail, that Celestino had betrayed her.
They were to have been married yes

she went to his home to meet him and
have the ceremony performed he spoke
unpleasantly of her and declared that

elected National committeeman, will
not return to Portland until after the
meeting of the National Committee,

Roosevelt Won Id Not Consider Had
ley, Says Senator, bat Ordered
Third Party to Keep From
Losing Followers.
WASHINGTON. July 12. Under the
caption,' "The Case of Mr. Roosevelt,
Senator La Follette has written the
following editorial in the current num
ber of his weekly journal:
'Bryan at Baltimore, foregoing all
chance of his own nomination, mar
shaling all his forces, braving Tarn
many and the trusts to rescue his
party from their domination, carrying
the convention for the adoption of the
most progressive Democratic platform
yet offered, and the nomination of the
most progressive Democratic candidate
available, was a towering figure of
moral power and patriotic devotion to
civic righteousness.
"Roosevelt at Chicago, backed by
money derived by stock-watering oper
ations of the steel trust and the har
vester trust, organising what are now
confessed to have been fake contests
as to nearly 200 delegates in order to
control the Republican convention and
secure his own nomination, refusing to
aid In making a progressive platform,
bound to have the nomination or de
stroy the Republican party, was a most
striking example of misdirected power
and unworthy ambition.
Coloael Serves Man Not Cause.
"Roosevelt had as great an oppor
tunity to serve the progressive cause
at Chicago as Bryan had at Baltimore.
But Roosevelt was serving the man,
not the cause. He wanted one thing
the nomination. And yet he did not
have enough votes to nominate himself
upon any honest basis. He did have
enough delegates in that convention
ultimately to have nominated a real
progressive and adopt a strong, pro
gresslve platform. He could even have
nominated Hadley on such a platform,
and progressive Republicans could have
supported Hadley in the same spirit as
hundreds of thousands of them will
now support Wilson. Neither Hadley
nor Wilson are veterans in the pro
gressive ranks. Neither of them has
been tried by the severest tests. Both
appear to be men of high ideals, whese
records, though short, give promises.
"But Roosevelt would not consider
Hadley. He would have no one but
himself. At ' the first suggestion of
Hadley, he ordered the third party ma
neuvers, lest he lose bis followers.
"If he had the evidence to prove that
Taft could not be honestly and fairly
nominated, why did he not direct his
lieutenants to present that evidence to
the National committee, and then to
the convention and the country so
clearly that the convention would not
have dared to nominate Taft, and that
Taft could not, in honor, have accepted
the nomination, if made?
Neither Side- Had Majority. '
"The reason is obvious. An analy
sis of the testimony will, I am con
vlnced, show that neither Taft nor
Roosevelt had a majority of honestly
or regularly elected delegates. This
the managers on both sides well un
derstood. Both candidates were trying
to seat a sufficient number of fraud
ulent credentialed delegates, added to
those regularly chosen to support him.
to secure control of the convention, and
to 'steam roll' the nomination. It was
a proceeding with which each was ac
quainted and . which each had sanc
tioned in prior conventions.
"This explains the extraordinary
conduct of Roosevelt. He could not en
ter upon such an analysis of the evi
dence as would prove Taffs regularly
elected delegates in the minority with
out inevitably subjecting his own spu
riously credentialed delegates to an
examination so critical as would ex
pose the falsity of his own contention
that he had an honestly elected ma
jority of the delegates. He therefore
deliberately chose to claim everything,
to cry fraud, to bully the National com
mittee and the convention .and, hav
ing thus created - a condition which
would make impossible a calm lnvestl
gallon of cases upon merit, carry the
convention by storm.
Comparison Wtta Bryaa Made.
That this is the true psychology of
the Roosevelt . proceedings becomes
perfectly plain. He was there to force
his own nomination or smash the con
ventlon. He was not there to preserve
the integrity of the Republican party
and make it an instrument for the
promotion of progressive principles and
the restoration of government to the
people. Otherwise he would have dl
rected his floor managers to contest
every inch of the ground for a progres
sive platform before the committee on
resolutions and in the convention.
But Mr. Roosevelt was not gov
erned by suggestion of that spirit of
high patriotic and unselfish purpose of
which Bryan furnished, sucn a . mag
nificent example one week later in the
Democratic convention at Baltimore.
Instead, he filled the public ear with
sound and fury. He ruthlessly- sacri
ficed everything to the one idea of his
being the one candidate. He gagged
his followers in the convention with
out putting on Tecord any facts upon
which the public could base a definite
intelligent Judgment regarding the
validity of Mr. rait s nomination, tie
submitted no suggestion as to a plat
form of progressive principles. He
clamored loudly for purging the - con
vention roll of tainted- delegates, with
out purging his own candidacy of his
tainted contests and nis tamtea trust
support. He offered no reason for a
third party excepting nis own over
mastering craving tor a third term."

Jobnny Williams, Minstrel, Actor
and Impresario, Will Take
Charge on Monday.
Charles N. ' Ryan has resigned as
manager of the Empress Theater and
John Williams, of San Francisco, has
been appointed by President John W.
Consldine. of the Sullivan & Considine
circuit, to succeed him. Mr. Williams
will take charge of the theater Monday.
The new theater manager is known
in theatrical circles of the United
States as Johnny (Frisco) Williams
and has a long record not only as an
actor, but as a manager. In 1879, 1880
and 1881 Williams was a member of
Emerson's minstrels and for the three
following years he was the leading ec
centric dancer with the original 40
Haverly minstrels.
Soon after the opening of the old
Cordray Theater he played the part of
Peck s Bad Boy" here and his record
lists him as one of the first to shine
In that role on the Pacific Coast. Later
Mr. Williams was comedian for Kate
Castleton with Howe & Burke produc
tions. Then he managed the Georgia
Minstrels successfully through hard
vicissitudes for three years and trav
eled at the head of Charles Frohman's
company for the same length of time.
Mr. Williams retired from the manage
ment of Frohman to preside over the
affairs of Alexander Herrmann (Herr
mann the Great), for whom he was
manager for five years. It is as man
ager of Herrmann the Great that Mr.
Williams is known particularly
throughout the United States. Im
mediately prior to his acceptance of
the management of the Empress
Theater here Mr. Williams was la
charge of the Pavilion - Rink in San
Francisco, a post be had held for six
years. .
