TiAici.' Mitin .TnnA 30. (Special.)
Prohibition Is being waived before
three of the four platform conventions
-which opened here today and are still
in session tonight, with prospects ol
. ..nnn.d hitter conflict all day to
morrow. All three are Jockeying for
time. They have three flays, Dy
in which to file sealed platforms with
the Secretary of State.
It seems safe to say, late tonight

xnai piviuuiLivu j........... -
and modified forms will be the outcome
of the fights in tne mree couvbiuiuub,
those of the Republican, Democratic
- and Progressive parties. The Social
ists make up the fourth convention.
The saloon advocates are playing a
prominent part and making a. desperate
stand. All convention sessions are
' Republican Fight Over Form.
tlon is over the form of the prohiDi
tlon plank, whether it will be con
stitutional amendment thus postponing
action for two years, when a two
thirds vote is required for ratifica
tion on the part of the people, or
prohibition by legislative enactment.
The anti-prohibitionists favor the con
Senator John Hart, of Fremont Coun
ty was elected temporary chairman
and'Senator D. W. Davis, of Power
County temporary secretary.
Credential, organization and flat
form committees were selected by
county rollcall. Senator Hanson later
was elected permanent chairman. A
motion to invite the public and press
to be present at the conventions de
liberations was snowed under.
' "Wets" Control Democrats.
The Hawley, or "wet" faction of the
Democratic party is in control of the
convention of that party, with A. M.
Bowen, of Twin Falls, chairman and
George H. Hill, of Fremont County,
secretary. The fight before the con
vention is whether a ."home rule" or
precinct local option plank shall be
adopted in preference to a constitu
tional prohibition plank. The "dry
delegates are asserting that the most
spirited fight in 'the history of the
party will break if the convention
turns down the Prohibition plank.
It is conceded the Progressives will
declare both for constitutional and
legislative enactment prohibition.
While the "wets" made a hard fight to
modify this determination of the Bull
Moosers. they soon gave up the cause
as hopeless. C. O. Broxon was tem
porary and permanent chairman.
A bomb was thrown into the Pro
gressive camp when Guy H. Martin, of
Sand Point, two years ago the party
candidate for Governor, announced in
a letter to State Chairman J. H. Gipson,
made publlo for the first time today,
that he would not be a candidate for

charge of the programme for the
luncheon at the Multnomah Hotel yes

across" was filled with laughable fea
tures. E. E. O'Neill. Rotarian artist,
drew cartoons of each of the men in
the "H-I-J" division and in the rollcall
C. C. Chapman introduced each one
with a short limerick In which he hit
off their business and personal char
acteristics. Politics was allowed to come into the
meeting when Stella Riggs. daughter
of F. C Riggs, made a speech saying
she Is a candidate -for a' commissioner
chip in the Junior Government. The
Rotarians pledged their support heartily-
N. G. Pike, first of the delegates to
the convention in Houston to return to

on the convention. Other members of
his delegation are returning by way

Hopgrowers of this part of the state
to the number of 25 met in Tacoma
today and effected organization to op
poBe the anti-saloon league's state
wide prohibition bill, known as initia
tive measure No. 3, which is to be voted
on at the next general election.
Alvin Muehler, a prominent Pierce
County grower, was elected president
and Hugh Herron, Puyallup Valley hop
man, was elected secretary. Resolu
tions were adopted emphatically setting
forth the stand of the growers and as
serting that the title of the bill could
be changed to read: "An act in favor
of breweries without the state as
against those within the common
wealth of Washington, inasmuch as the
proposed measure destroys an in
dustry that employs labor living here,
pays taxes here, and purchases the
products of the soil of this state."
President Muehler in addressing the
growers said the hop crop of this state
was sold last year for Sl.321,000 and
that the outlook for this year is
greater and will reach close. to
"There are more than 5500 acres in
hop fields in this state," Mr. Muehler
explained," and the average Is ten
bales of 200 pounds to the acre.
"Our hopyards are worth from $400
to $500 an acre and if the hop industry
here is destroyed the land will not be
worth more than from $150 to $200 per
acre, which will mean a loss of over
$1,650,000 to the hopgrowers and a
like amount of taxable property lost
to the state, and other property will
have to bear the increase in tax levy.
"This prohibition will not alone hit
the hopgrower, it will effect all tax
payers in an Increase in their taxes.
Hoppicking alone gives employment
to over 15.000 people here during the
season. The proposed bill does not
nrohiblt drinking liquor. It lets a per
son get all he wants, but provides he
must get it outside the state. Brt It
does say that liquor cannot be made
in this state ana tnai tne Drewenes
must be forever closed.
"We do not see tire moral question in
providing that liquor made outside the
state can be purchased and drank
within the state, but that it cannot
be made In the state. We have the
rlrht and it is our duty to organize
and oppose the anti-saloon league In
this matter. It is a ngnt ior sen
