Routine Only Is Attended to
; at First Day's Session.
With 216 delegates attending from IS
ef the 34 counties in Oregon, the Pro
hibition party state nominating conven
tion opened yesterday in the Taylor
street Methodist Episcopal Church.
The first day's session developedTittle
outside of the ordinary routine of or
ganization. No attempt was made to
force an adjournment or the convention
until after the primary. This fight,
however, is expected to come up this
morning just before the selection or
the nominees for state offices Is in
Any attempt to adjourn the conven
tion without completing the work of
nominating a state ticket will be bitterly
opposed. The straight prohibition ele
ment in the party is also opposed to
giving Prohibition party nominations to
candidates for the same nominations In
other parties and particularly to any
indorsement of candidates of other par
ties. Mr. Chafln Give Warning. .
This point was emphasized by Eu
gene W. Chafin, the most . prominent
National figure in Prohibition party
ranks, twice its candidate for Presi
dent, in an address Just before the
afternoon adjournment. Mr.. Chafin
cited many instances of parties that
have died because they lost their Iden
tities by fusion with other parties. He
- said that the Prohibition party must
be uncompromising in its insistence on
retaining its identity, that to do this
it must nominate Prohibition party can
didates for all offices, and must take a
firm stand against indorsing candidates
of other parties.
"If they wart to be Indorsed, let them
run as - Prohioition party candidates,"
said Mr. Chafin. -
Though he did riot refer to the ex
pected attempt today to force adjourn
ment until after the primary by dele
gates who hope thereby to have the
Prohibition party later nominate and
indorse some of the successful candi
dates for Republican or Democratic
nominations, Mr. Chafin's remarks
were clearly Intended to show his own
disapproval of the plan.
After J. P. Newell, state chairman,
had called the convention to order F.
W. Emerson, of Albany, and R. W.
MacCullough, of The Dalles, were
quickly chosen as temporary chairman
and secretary. Mr. Emerson expressed

A mos, of Portland, chairman: Mrs.
Mary Mallett. of Portland. C. P. Coe,
of McMinnville, D. M. Williamson, of
Corvallls, and C. J. Bright, of The
Dalles. Ratification of their selections
for permanent officers was one of the
first actions of the afternoon.
The permanent officers, who were
selected without opposition, are: Levi
T. Pennington, of Newberg, chairman:
Mrs. Charlotte Hanan, of Portland, and
Irf-slie Butler, of Hood River, vice
chairmen; J. A. Dunbar, of Portland,
secretary, and Mrs. Ward Swope and
J. S.. Fox, of Portland, assistant secre
taries. After the noon adjournment the del
egates went to the Portland Hotel,
where enthusiastic speeches were made
at a well-attended luncheon. H. W.

Koseburgr Land Office Kxpected Soon
to Announce Manner of En

Acres Cut Into 4 0-Acre Units.
A tract of approximately 32,800 acres
of land in Southern Coos and Northern
Curry Counties has been excluded from
the Siskiyou National Forest., accord
ing to an executive order issued by
President Wilson, telegraphic notice of
which was received at the Portland of
fices of the Forestry Department yes
terday. This step is in keeping with the
policy of the present Administration in
withdrawing from forest reserves all
lands that are suitable for farms and
that may be utilized for agricultural
purposes. Chief Forester Graves" per
sonally inspected the Oregon reserves
recently in order to determine how
that policy might be furthered in this
40-Acre Inila Segregated.
Of the area eliminated, about 15,000
acres are vacant public lands, segre
gated into units of from 40 acres up
The balance of . the land has already
been entered under the general public
land laws or the forest homestead law
and the occupants of claims thus estab
lished will not be disturbed. It is un
derstood that the public lands Involved
will all be subject to settlement under
the homestead law on and after June
23, but entries at the local land office
will not be . permitted until July 27.
No information has yet been received,
however, as to whether any of the pub
lic land has been specially withdrawn,
or classified, so as to prevent or re
strict the right of settlement and entry-

The lands were eliminated from the
National Forest on the recommenda
tion of the supervisor. N. F. Macduff,
of Grants Pass, Or. It In "understood
that a large portion of the land is
suited by climate, topography and soil
to the form of agricultural use com
mon to the coast country, but the prin
cipal reason for the elimination is the
fact that only a very small percentage
of the area is permanently suited to
the establishment and maintenance of
a forest, and the cost of administra
tion, protection and management of
this small percentage of the land is too
great to warrant the retention of the
land under withdrawal.
The lands In question are all situated
in the Roseburg Land District- The
Roseburg office will doubtless soon be

There is some question as to-whether
