NEW YORK, July Is. While the

on their part was the apprehension
of "Bridgie" Webber, an East Side

A. B.'Olston, Brought From Illinois,
Pays Up and Gains Release.
Albert B. olston yesterday was
brought back from Evanston, 111., by
Detective Craddock. only to be released
upon his arrival after paying the
amount he is alleged to have secured
by the swindle.
The swindle Is alleged to have taken
place in 1910, and Olston was Indicted
in February of this year.
By selling SO shares of stock in
the Range Boiler Insulator Company,
whose assets conststrd of nothing, and
by promising a position at $100 a
month, Olston Is alleged to have ob
tained more than 12400 and title to 130
acres of valuable timber - land from
John Wood, of Orenco. It Is charged
Olston represented that he would pay
40 per cent in dividends on the stock.
Oiston is alleged to have used a woman
named White as a catspaw, to In
duce Wood to part with his money and
land. The woman is said to be a
clever worker. She is now believed
to be tn Los Angeles, assisting two
brothers of Olston In a similar scheme.

Thomas McCusker. manager of the
progressive Republican campaign com
mltte. has rushed to the front to
block efforts on the part of promoters
of the Roosevelt third party move
ment to win over the following and
supporters of Senator La Follette. In
a letter Issued yesterday, Mr. McCusker
denounces the new party and advises
all La Follette people to stay away
from it.
The letter Is as follows:
I notice at a meetlnar of the "Third Par
ty" advocates, or Bandana Club, last Mon
day evening, the gentlemen in question em
phaslzed the necessity of inviting the lf
Follette - people to Join them in the great
DroKressive movement, name v to elect
progressive aa President, and as they have
written Into their by-laws the name of
Theodore Roosevelt, it follows that there is
only one progressive In the country.
A convention of this faction is called for
the near future to elect five delegates in
structed for a progressive candidate well
hardlv. Instructed for Roosevelt only and
there is no other progressive, no one else
will be considered.
They Invite thj laboring people to Join
their club, but inform them in advance that
they are Invited In merely out of courtesy
and as a great favor to tnem.
They invite the La Follette people be
cause they need them, and in order to at
tract them they name an alleged La Fol
lette man as a member of their committee.
who says he thinks as much of La Follette
now as ne ever din; wnicn l grant is true,
but outside of voting for Roosevelt, they
will not be considered.
Thev remind me of the man who fell In
the well and tried to lift himself out by
his boot straos.
Without wishln- to Influence vour action
in any way, I would respectfully suggest
that no La Follette man should be in a
hurry to loin anv new narty floundering
around In a sea of political disappointment
headed hv a neraonal Dronoun.
Notwithstanding the prophecies to me
contrary, the Republican- party will no tne

do not put yourselves In the position of
having to knock for readmittance. . .- .
If vou desire to vote for a progressive
candidate, you will be given the opportu
nity and can atlll remain In the party.
The letter is one of the results- of
the recent meeting of the third party
men. at which Mr. McCusker was
blacklisted. "They blacklisted me, said
Mr. McCusker, "because of an interview
printed In a Chicago newspaper, in
-which I was wrongly quoted as saying
that six of the Oregon delegates were
ready to jump from Roosevelt to Taft.
What I really said was Just the op
The action of tne itooseveit people
in blacklisting me saved me the trouble
of blacklisting myself. I could not
have been a member of the party with
out a purging of the role. And now 1
want them to know that although
they have burled me, my feet are still
sticking out and somebody is liable to
stumble over them.
As far as the third party Is con
cerned I do not believe it will amount
to anything."

Move to Put Roosevelt and Taft Elec
tors on Same Ticket to Be
Resisted Vigorously.
NEW YORK, July 18. (Special.)
Charles D. Hilles. chairman of the Re
publican National committee, yesterday
formally opened the Taft National cam
paign In New York. After numerous
conferences at the Hotel Manhattan, be
ginning with William Barnes, Jr., and
continuing down the line until most of
the old guard stalwarts had paid their
respects, the young manager of the
President's cause authorized the open
ing of offices In the Times building to-
morrow and said that permanent of
fices of the committees of the National
committee would be chosen Friday. Mr.
Hilles said that the suggestion of Rep
resentative Rees, of Kansas, looking to
the withdrawal of President Taft and
Colonel Roosevelt from the race had not
gone far.
"In fact," said Mr. Hilles, humor
ously, "the Colonel halted any serious
consideration of the matter by say
ing there was a conspiracy on foot to
retire him from public life."
Regarding the move put forward by
William Flinn In Pennsylvania, ex
Governor Stokes In New Jersey and
George Galther In Maryland to place
the same names of Presidential electors
on both the Republican and "Bull
Moose" tickets, Mr. Hilles became se
rious. "Even this early in the campaign I
think that any such proposal will be
resisted to the limit," he said. "There
will be no compromise. I believe such
a proposition is opposed to the spirit
and letter of the law In the different
Mr. Hilles has been duly Impressed
by the dominating personality of
Barnes. He said the Albany man
would be on either the advisory or
executive committee, but could not saj
which. It haa been the custom, Mr.
Hilles said, to build the executive
committee of members of the National
committee. The advisory committee
may Include one er two National com
mitteemen, but will largely be com
posed of outsiders.

Regulars Xow Out Will Be Supported
hy Third Party If They Climb
on the Bandwagon.
For Republican candidates, tor the
various state, county and city posi
tions, the Roosevelt third-party sup
porters in Oregon promise their sup
port, - provided the candidates will
climb into the third-party bandwagon.
This was the announcement Wednes
day of Dr. Henry Waldo Coe. one of
the Roosevelt supporters who has
called a meeting of Roosevelt sup
porters for nert week to perfect
working organization to begin an
active political campaign.
Dr. Coe says it Is his desire to have
the candidates express their opinions
as to which side they want to be on,
and he therefore will await with much
interest the answer to the question of
affiliation which has been put up to
the candidates by the county central
committee. Candidates who line up
with the Taft people will be snubbed
by the third-party supporters.
Dr. Coe returned from the East Mon
day after spending some time visiting
Eastern relatives, following the Re
publican convention in Chicago. When
he arrived in the city he issued a call
for the third-party supporters to hold
meeting to arrange for a complete
"The third party is working on the
supposition that the Republican party
now stands without a nominee for the
Presidency. - This is because President
Taft got the so-called nomination by
majority of 21. and he had a total
of 75 stolen votes. Morally he was
not nominated and that Is the basis we
are working on.
It is our desire to get every one of
the candidates on the Republican
ticket, from United States Senator on
down the list, to show their colors.
We want them to come out in public
and say whether they are for Taft or
for Roosevelt. M e want to know
whether they want to take a chance
1th Roosevelt and his 21,000 votes or
Taft with his 7000 votes. Whether we
will put candidates out in the field or
not we have not decided as yet and
we probably won't know until we hear
from the present candidates.
"In the East some of the politicians
have talked with have figured out
the situation In detail and they de
clare that Taft will carry but one state
In the Union Rhode Island. He has
bare fighting chance in Delaware
and New Hampshire, but that is as
far as it goes. The Idea of Roose
velt regarding the third party does
not coincide with a great body of his
supporters. It Is necessary to have the
third party to get candidates properly
placed on the ticket in many of the
tates. Out of it may come a great
ew party, but the time is too short
to absolutely create this party for the
present emergency.
"In the matter of electors for Oregon
the Roosevelt people will take no
chances in voting for a set of men, no
matter what they say, who are not
well known as genuine progressives,
who will support the nominee of our
convention. The plan probably will
bo to put up new men. along with such
candidates already nominated, as can
be relied upon. This will not be done
until after the convention in August.1

Regular Train Service Will Bo In
augurated Not Later Than Next
Monday Morning.
Regular traffic over the new O.-W.
R, & N. bridge across the Willamette
will be Inaugurated not later than next
Monday morning. It may be started aa
early as tomorrow afternoon.
As soon as practicable thereafter
demolition of the old bridge will be
started regardless of pending nego
tiations between the railroad company
and city and county officials for use
of the upper deck of the new bridge.
Operation of the lift span in the
new bridge was started, suooesslully
yesterday morning. Tracks now are
being laid across It As soon as this
work Is oorapleted, work trains will be
run over It. The first train will con
sist of a heavy engine and a string of
steel oars loaded with ballast to be
used In filling the tracks between the
west approach and the yards adjoining
the Union depot.
Engineers say there is no necessity
of testing the new bridge, aa they are
confident it will operate successfully.
'As soon as the bridge is done It
will be ready for train service, said
George W, Bosohke, chief engineer of
the 0.-W, R. A S, Company, yesterday.
We don't have to test It. as it can't
be wrong. It would be a poor bridge
that would require testing, and we

It Is probable that street railway
traffic will be inaugurated over the
the upper deck within the next few
months. The O.-W. R. & N. Company
and the Portland Railway, Light &
Power Company reached an agreement
several months ago for a monthly
rental of $1600 for the use of the upper
deck by the streetcar company. Al
though the Portland Railway, Light &
Power Company has accepted the terms
of the railroad, it has no franchise for
approaches on either side of the struc
ture. However, Mayor Rushlight said
a short while ago that he is willing to
have the Council grant a revocable
franchise over the streets approaching
the bridge pending an agreement for
permanent franchises.
Negotiations between the O.-W. R.
& N. Company and the city and county
authorities are no nearer a solution
now than ever. The city and county
still are in an attitude of "passing the
buck" to one another and the railroad
officials are not doing muoh to relieve
the situation.
