Analyzes for Voters Keal Motive
PORTLAND, Or., Oct. 4. (To the Ed
itor.) Voters of Oregon who would
. know the real inspiration of the Bull
I Moose crusade against the Admlnistra-
tlon will find rich material tn the tes
? timony now being- brought into the
; limelight by the Senatorial investigat-
ing committee. The charge that al
most fabulous sums had been spent in
carrying the Spring primaries for
: Roosevelt was resented with hot in
' dlgnatlon, and a credulous public was
told that $160,000 would cover the en
tire expense. The testimony of Flinn
and Hooker already shows that several
times that amount was expended, and
"it is probable that the greater portion
of the actual expense never will be
The most shameful feature of the
whole affair is that the proven source
of nearly all the contributions shows
. that the crusade has its whole inspira
' tion in the desire for revenge on the
part of corrupt politicians and law
violating trust magnates, who have
' been called to account by a President
j who has insisted upon impartial en
( forcement of the law against criminals
j of high as well as of criminals of
I low degree.
S Political Bosses Confess. '
' The three most conspicuous leaders
' of the Roosevelt campaign are Munsey,
r Perkins and Flinn. There never was
a more prolific breeding-ground for
' rotten politics than the State of Penn-
sylvan la, and of all the spawn of that
I breeding-ground there never was a rot
tener specimen than the notorious Bill
. Flinn, the political boss of Pittsburg.
- It has been repeatedly charged that
-through his position as the boss of
j Pittsburg the firm of Flinn & Bootn
had profited througn municipal con
tracts to an amount estimated to equal
at least J17.000.000. The type of man
he is appears from the confessions he
has been making this week to the
Senatorial Investigating committee. He
admits drawing a contract in January,
1S9C, dividing the local and Federal
patronage of Pennsylvania between

k brick." Charged with having, in a tel
. egram dated June 7, 1904. asked the
s Standard Oil Company to support him
5 for the United States Senatorship, he
: shifts the responsibility upon the shoul
'' ders of J. G. Splain, who "thinks" he
'may have signed the telegram wlth
out Flinn's authority,
re Flinn admits, however, that when he
i employed Splain he knew "he had
3 worked for the Standard Oil Co.. and "J
j told him to go ahead In his own way.
1 Flinn also testifies that years ago he
spent tllO.OOO to win certain offices
i drawing salaries of only $70,000. We
i are left to infer he was to get his mon
i ey back in political contracts. Ho
( admits that he has contributed 144.
f 30S to the recent campaigns in Penn
i' eylvanla, of which he speaks of 10B.-
000 being the amount of his Roosevelt
t subscription. He further admits that
' per cent of the Roosevelt fund in
' Pennsylvania was contributed by him
r personally. All of this contribution, we
i are told, was in the interest of civic
t purity and progressive Republicanism.
other Sams Revealed.
E. H. Hooker, the treasurer of the
National Bull Moose committee, testl
' fles that $141,657.44 was spent in what
: he calls the Roosevelt National cam
' paign. This does not cover the various
state campaign expenditures, which -in
New York alone he admits was $52,
606.52. Dixon, on Tuesday, says he spent
$96,000. besides the $141,657 testified
to by Hooker, which was exclusive of
' $162,000 handled by Hooker in the
New York campaign, and the $102,000
. contributed by Flinn for the Pennsyl
vania campaign. This probably does
not begin to cover the amount spent
In these two states, and no reckoning
at all is made of the enormous sums
' spent In other state campaigns.
The personal contributions, besides
. - iuiiab mnti-ihiitpri1 hv Flinn.
Include large sums amounting in the
aggregate apparently to at !
000 from the PInchot family, including
$25,000 from Gitford and Amos and
apparently as much more from William
Eno. a "relative of theirs"; Mrs. An
toinette Wood, "an aunt." and "a rich
' uncle," who is said to be the largest
contributor. The personal grievance
of the PInchot family "is well under
stood. Perkins is credited with $16,000
given to the New York campaign and
$23 600 to the National campaign. Mun-
1-sey" gives $15,000 to New York and $19,
000 to National campaign, and Dan R.

a liberal contributor to the Bull Moose
campaign fund. Taft's prosecution of
the steel and harvester trusts, in which
he is a stockholder, and Teddy's re
fusal to prosecute the harvester trust,
and his assent to the absorption by the
steel trust of the Tennessee Coal &
Iron Company, has nothing to, do with
it, and nobody but a base-born stand

shameless type would dare to insinuate
otherwise. . -

The Bear brought 216 passengers
and about 1300 tons of .cargo. &ne
was not beset by unusual weather, ex
cept that Thursday night there were
several squalls of short duration. The
steamer Beaver was reported by her
as leaving the river at daylight yes

In a report of Harbormaster Spcier
yesterday. Patrolman C. K. Grisim, c-f
the day relief, states that he arrested
Richard Burke a scowdweller living
at the east 'end of the Burnside-street
bridge, and charged, him with grand
larceny for having stolen a launcn va
ued at 1250, the property of Edison
Cook, of 1478 Fern street, Woodlawn.
Burke admitted having the boat, the
report states, but said he had pur
chased it from a stranger.

steamer Northland got away yesterday
for California ports.
"Mv radiant countenance is due to
the fact we are transporting quantities

son why the service should be dis
continued in advance of the date de

To complete her wheat cargo for
Europe, the Norwegian steamer Rygja
shifted yesterday afternoon from Al
blna dock to the North Bank dock. The
steamer No Wonder, of the Shaver fleet.
which assisted the tramp, was com
manded by Captain James Shaver, with
Captain George Shaver as pilot and the
regular skipper as mate, while there
were three engineers standing by. The
deck crew was made up of the office
force, because the vessel has been out
of commission for a short time.
Repairs being ended aboard the
American ship St. Nicholas, of the
Alaska salmon fleet, she will leave
down from the public drydock this
morning in tow of the steamer Mon

News has been received that Com
mander C. J. Lang, who was execu
tive officer of the United States ship
Maryland on the occasion of her visit
here in June, had been detached from
the vessel and given command of the
cruiser Pittsburg, formerly the Penn
sylvania, of the Pacific reserve fleet.
His new berth is regarded tne best at
Bremerton, with the exception of that
held by Admiral Cottman.
Because the man at the wheel put
the helm over in the opposite direction
than the pilot indicated, the steamer
Klamath, of the McCormlck line, went
ashore Thursday night at Nehaleni
Junction, near Goble, but was hauled
into deep water yesterday by the
steamer Cascades and proceeded.

INSPECTOR OPPOSES PLAN
Chew System of Construction, Which
Company Desires to Use, Objec
tionable to Mi. Plommer, but
Conncilmen Are Favorable.
In an effort to obtain permission to
Mi.na.mn. Ita IJ.atnr. fiT-AnT-OOf building
at Park and Oak streets, W. "W. Lucius,
engineer for the Pacific Telepnone &
Telegraph Company, appeared before
the health and police committee of the
City Council yesterday. The committee
heard arguments fot and against the
narmlt and sent the Question to the
Council for a decision.
Building Inspector Plummer will not
issue a permit for the building because
of the fact, as he says, that the con
tractors demand to construct It on the
Chew system, never before used here,
and that they further demand to use
their own figures on stress and safety,
of which he and his engineers do not
Gates Would Be Open to All.
"I do not argue," said Mr. Plummer,
"that, if they build the structure their
way, it will fall down. I am saying,
however, that it is proceeding on a
basis that, sooner or later, is bound to
bring trouble. They can all show you
that their plans are safe; that they are
building this or that way elsewhere,
but you will recall the case of the
Quebec bridge. It was constructed by
. wh. than w. nrftlwlllv the LOOSt
noted engineer in the world; but he
stretched his process oi saiety con
struction too far and the bridge fell.
Another thing, If you repeal a code
section to let the Chew system come
in and work as it sees fit, you will have
all of the others, and I do not see how
you can deny them the right. I do
no thinq you Bhould proceed on this
thing without considerable study."
Engineer Lucius said that the Chew
system is working in other cities as it
is proposed to be worked here, and
that it has met with no trouble else
where. He declared that It is perfectly
Winch to Get Permit.
Councilman Jlonks said he believed
the Council should let the telephone
company proceed with its building. He
said he did not like to see any system
of building shut out of Portland, and
that. If It Is all right in other places.
It must be all right here. . Councilman
Watklns was willing to grant the per
mit and Councilman Magulre was con
tent to let the subject go to the Council
Martin Winch will be given a permit
to build another story on his apartment-house
at Fourteenth and Market
streets. In all probability, as the com
mittee voted to recommend It. Inspec
tor Plummer also opposed this move.

OnDOsltlon to the proposed constitu

Grange of this valley. The grange
heartily Indorses the movement rep
resented by question No. 310 on the
ballot which requires that no .con
stitutional amendment shall be made
without a majority of the legal voters
at an election. ' '
"Since It is the sense of this grange,
says the resolution, "that the present
excessive use of the Initiative is its
worst enemy; there are now before the
people certain proposed constitutional
amendments that threaten calamity to
the business and industrial interests
of the state. Therefore we believed

Eothcliild Bros., Distributers
Electric into that city, Tuesday, Octo
ber 15. '
The citizens of Eugene have planned
a monster demonstration and expect to
devote the entire day to a programme
fittingly commemorating the Invasion
of their city by the Hill road. A pa
rade, speeches and fireworks, as well as
a banquet and probably a barbecue, are
among the attractions offered.
A special car or two will be operated
from Portland.' through Salem and Al
bany to carry local officials and citi
zens to Eugene on the morning of the
eventful day. J. H. Toung, president
of the Hill lines in this territory: Mr.
Coman and other officials will be mem
bers of the party. An invitation has
been extended to James J. Hill to offi
ciate at the spike-driving ceremonies,
but It Is not likely that he can be pres.
ent. A number o Portland people will
accompany the local Hill officials on the
trip and share with them the Joy and
satisfaction of reaching the heart of
the famous Willamette Valley with
their rails and electric wires.
It Is probable that regular freight
and passenger service will be Inaugu
rated immediately after the formal
opening. Through sleeping cars will
be operated between Portland and Eu
gene every night.

HATE CASTOR OIL
To Clean the Little One's Stomach,
Liver and Waste-Clogged Bowels,
Give Gentle ' ' Syrup of rigs. ' '
Look back at your childhood days.
Remember the physio that mother In
sisted on castor oil. calomel, cathar
tics. How you hated them, how you
fought against taking them.
With our children it is different. The
day of harsh physio is over. We don't
fore the liver and 0 feet of bowels
now; we coax them. We have no
dreaded after effeots. -Mothers who
cling to the old form of physic simply
don't realize what they do. The chil
dren's revolt is well-founded. Their
little stomaohs and tender bowels are
Injured by them.
If your child la fretful, peevish, half
Ick, stomach sour,, breath feverish and
Its little system full of cold; has diar
rhoea, sore throat, stomach-ache;
doesn't eat or rest well remember
look at the tongue, if ooated, give a
teaspoonful of Byrup of Figs, then
don't worry, because you surely will
have a well, smiling child In a few
Syrup of Figs boing composed en
tirely of luscious figs; senna and aro
matlcs simply cannot be harmful. It
sweetens the stomach, makes the liver
active and thoroughly cleanses the lit
tle one's waste-clogged bowels. In a
few hours all sour bile, . undigested
fermenting food and constipated waste
matter gently moves on and out of the
system without griping or nausea.

Advice to Expectant Mothers
The experience of Motherhood is a try
ing one to most women and marks dis
tinctly an epoch fci their lives. Not one
woman in a hundred is prepared or un
derstands how to properly care for her
self. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at
such times, - but - many approach the
experience with an organism unfitted
for the trial of strength, and when it
is over her system has received a shock
from which it is hard to recover. Fol
lowing right upon this comes the ner
vous strain of caring for the child, and
a distinct change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth .under the right
conditions need be no hazard to neaitn or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is that,
with all the evidence of shattered nerves
and broken health resulting from an un
prepared condition, and with ample time
in which to prepare, women will persist
in going blindly to the trial.
Every woman at this time should rely
upon Lydia E-Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound, a most valuable tonic and invig-
orator of the female organism.
In many homes
once childless there
are now children be
cause of the fact
that Lydia E. Pink
healthy and strong.
If yon want special advice Tfrite to
Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co. (confl.
dential) Lynn. Mags. Tout letter will
be opened, read and answered by a
woman and held la strict confidence.
