taken under these circumstances.
Stafford told of being engaged as
Logan's chauffeur for five or six
months during the Spring and Summer
of 1913. at which time, he said, Logan's
headquarters were In San Francisco
and Oakland. He said he had no other
employment while working for Logan,
except that he "boosted this O. & C.

"Was there a difference in Logan

He said that Logan was serious and j

"What would Logan say to you when
you were approaching a town In the
automobile?" asked Mr. Reames.
"We'll Dynamite It" Is Reply.
"He would say, 'We'll dynamite this
place,' " said Stafford.
"Did you know what he meant by
dynamite'?- asked Mr. Ream e a
"I object to the form of the ques
tion," interposed Attorney Dennis.
"You knew that he didn't really mean
that you were going to blow up the
town," persisted Mr. Reames, and Staf
ford said that be did.
Stafford said that Logan claimed to
be representing different concerns at
different times, among them the "Ore
gon Realty Company" and the "Oregon
Timber & Land Company."
"Did you ever come right out and
ask Logan as to the merits of the
proposition?" asked Mr. Reames.
Logan "Kind of Laughed."
"I asked him once," said Stafford,
"and he kind of laughed and said, 'They
may have a ofeance in ten years or so.' "
Stafford Identified the following ad

Stafford said that Logan, so far as

which was used as a means of getting

So far as the Democrats are con

Smoot Supporters Confident.
The Smoot supporters are confident.
They depend, first, on the solid support
of the Republican voters. To this they
add a substantial defection from the
Bull Moose ranks. This defection 'has
been apparent in the various local elec
tions held since the contest of 1912.
In that year the Taft electors re
ceived 42.100 votes in Utah. The Wil
son vote was S6.579, and that of Roose
velt 24,174, giving the Democrats and
Progressives combined 60,703 votes a
majority of more than IS.000 over the
Republicans. This majority, the Re

overcome by a defection of only a lit

Republican ranks. They believe the
