' LUCKING THIS YEAR
Continuous Session of Con
gress Keeps National Lead
ers in Washington.
DEMOCRATS' APPEAL VAIN
Progressives' Call lor Roosevelt to
Help Ont Hanley Falls on Deaf
Ears, but Republicans Will
Burn Red Fire.
Unless Congress adjourns within the
next few weeks Oregon probably will
not hear any political orators of Na
tional reputation other than those res
idents of the state already on the job.
If Congress winds up Its business
soon after the first of next month It
Is probable that Oregon will be lnvad
ed by a battery of campaign speakers
of varied political complexions.
The Democrats have been appealing
earnestly for some help from the East,
but thus far without results. They
have been trying to persuade Secre
tary Bryan to come out here, but he
has been "too busy" getting his peace
Vice-President Marshall has prom
ised to come to Oregon if he "can get
away," but of course It will be Impos
sible to get away so long as Congress
is at work.
All the Democratic Senators will be
busy if Congress winds up Its labors.
Those who are up for re-election will
have a hard time to regain their seats
and those whose terms do not expire
this year will be called upon to assist
In the work of returning their col
leagues. The Progressives have been count
ing on Colonel Roosevelt coming to the
state to help out William Hanley In
his Senatorial campaign, but they can't
see how the Colonel consistently can
do that when Hanley two years ago
repudiated the Republican nomination
for Presidential elector and came out
in support of Wilson on the grounds
that "a vote for Taft is a vote for
It is understood that a number of
Republican Senators have expressed
an eagerness to come to Oregon and
assist in the campaign for Mr. Booth,
but they, too, will be held in Washing
ton unless Congress adjourns soon.
The closing weeks of the campaign
promise some lively times, however, in
spite of the absence of imported
speakers. The various candidates for
state ana r eoerai oiuces who nave
been conducting quiet campaigns of
personal solicitation for the last month
are preparing to get out soon after
October 1 and do some open-air work,
attended by the traditional campaign
C. M. Hurlburt, whose withdrawal
ss the Republican candidate in the
Seventeenth Representative District,
composed of Multnomah and Clacka
mas Counties, has been demanded by
the Republican county committee, has
made no further reply to these de
mands. It was reported yesterday that
he probably will refuse to withdraw.
In that event the Republican organi-

members of the committee are con
vinced that Hurlburt cannot qualify If

called at the county Republican bead
quarters In the Morgan building. Mr.
Eastman reports that conditions in the

"Scores of Republicans who voted for
Lafferty in the primaries have decided
to vote for McArthur in the general
election," reports Mr. Eastman. "Mc
Arthur Is gaining votes in the country
precincts every day."
Mr. Eastman Is organizing a sub
committee and Is active in the effort
to induce all voters in his precinct to
W. E. Meachem, secretary of the Com
mercial Club at Baker, was in Portland
yesterday on his way to Salem, where
he will have chare- of the Baker
County exhibit at the State Fair next
week. Although Mr. Meacham has little
time to give to politics, he says it is
not hard for anyone to see that Baker
County has Republican leanings this
year. Withycombe and Booth will carry
the county, he predicts. Hanley's vote
will be fair in Baker County, but it
will cut into the Chamberlain strength
more than into that of Booth.
Governor West spoke at Estacada last
night, and a number of Portland Demo
crats went to hear him. G. L. Hedges,
candidate tat. .. JDistrict Attorney in
Clackamas County, also spoke.
A. W. Lafferty, independent candidate
for Congress in the Multnomah County
district, is expected home in a few days.
Lafferty hurried back to Washington a
few weeks ago when the House began
docking the salary of members for their
absence. When he left, though, he said
he would be back here about October
1. It is reported that he will be ready
to leave Washington today or tomor
row. 1. F. Toakum, of Dallas, was In Port
land yesterday and brought encourag
ing reports to Republican headquarters.
Mr. Toakum is a state committeeman
In Polk County, and says the sentiment
of the people favors election of the
entire Republican ticket.
"We will trim 'em to a finish this
year." he declared. "Chamberlain al
ways has carried our precinct, but he
cannot do it this year. Even the Demo
crats are turning against him. He has
made a lot of promises to his supporters
In Polk County, but never has made
good on his promises. They are tired
waiting for him to perform and now
have turned against him."
Milton A. Miller, collector of Internal
revenue, has gone to McMinnville to
speak at a Democratic rally to be held
there today. Mr. Miller recently re
turned from Washington, D. C. and is
expected to deliver a "message" from
Senator Chamberlain and the Demo
crats at the National capital.
An open-air meeting is scheduled by
the Democrats in Kern Park tonight.
A. F. Flegel, candidate for Congress,
and Lester W. Humphreys, representing
Senator Chamberlain, will be the prin
W. E. Myers, of Portland, has Just re
turned from a business trip to Prine
ville, county seat of Crook County, and
predicts that the Republican ticket will
carry the county. Prineville, particu
larly, will return a big Republican vote,
Employes of Robert A. Booth always
have been allowed the utmost freedom
in their voting, and the same condition
prevails this year, says O. H. Jarrett
of Wendling, Or., who has been asso
ciated with the Booth-Kelly Lumber
Company for several years.
This Information came accidentally
into Republican headquarters In the
Imperial Hotel yesterday, and In a pe
culiar way. it happened that Mr. Jar
rett was elected precinct committeeman
in his precinct, and therefore received
a letter from state headquarters, simi
lar to those received by all precinct
committeemen, asking him for a report
on political conditions.
"I will go as far as mv nosltlon will
permit." said Mr. Jarrett In reply. "My
employers, the Booth-Kelly Lumber
Company, never have in the past made
it a point to Influence their employes'
votes, and as I represent them here I
do not feel like starting a precedent in
Mr. Jarrett added that the precinct
gave the Republican-ticket a heavy vote
in the primaries, and that it doubtless
will vote for the full ticket in the election.

day, attending a meeting of the Marion
County Democratic central committee.

Supporters of Senator Chamberlain
are becoming worried" over the effect
the Hanley campaign is having on their
candidate on the "wet" issue. Hanley
is openly opposed to prohibition. He
devotes a plank in his platform to an
expression of his views on this subject.
He is appealing, therefore, to the "wet"
element in the state, or at least to that
element that Is opposed to prohibition.
Senator Chamberlain, for reasons that
are well understood by most voters,
generally has been classified as a friend
of the "wets." In previous campaigns
he has had the support of the liberal
element. He has been counting on this
same support in his present campaign.
- oui me presence of Hanley in the
race has upset the Chamberlain calcu
lations. Hanley has cut deeply Into the
Chamberlain support in almost every
county of the state. The Chamberlain
people realize that whatever strength
Hanley has been able to enlist must
necessarily come largely from the

AGENT-' WANTS HEARING
RALPH ACKLEY PROTESTS COURT'S
CENSURE OF DEAL
Realty Board Asked to Determine
Whether Judae'a Scoring Was
Just on Face of Testimony
In a letter addressed to the Port
land Realty Board and read before that
body at its luncheon yesterday, Ralph
Ackley, of the Ralph Ackley Land Com
pany, complains that he was unjustly
censured while on the witness stand
in the Circuit Court last Saturday and
asks, that the board investigate the
statement made by the judge that he
was a robber and ought to be placed
on the rockpile.
President Vincent appointed a spe
cial committee to ferret out the facts
in the case and file a report as to
its findings. Mr. Ackley, as a member
of the Portland Realty Board, requests
that the statement should be promptly
investigated in justice to himself.
"On March 27, 1914, a Mr. Rogers,
who owns a tract of land in Marlon
County, Oregon, called me by phone
and told me that a Mr. Held, his former
neighbor, wanted to trade his Portland
home for the tract of land adjoining
Mr. Rogers' place," says Mr. Ackley in
setting forth the facts leading up to
the charges made against Elm.
"This tract was owned by a Mr.
Kennedy, of Woodburn. At my sug
gestion, Mr Kennedy inspected Mr.
Held's Portland property and made
him a proposition to trade. A few
days later Mr. Held called at my of
fice and arranged to look at the land
In Marlon County. Mr. Held frankly
stated that he would not allow an
agent to go with him. He would de
pend upon his own Judgment. I
phoned Mr. Kennedy to meet Mr. Held
and show him the land, which he did.
The trade was consummated a few days
later in my office to the satisfaction
"Later Mr. Held brought suit against
Mr. Kennedy and me jointly to recover
the deed to his Portland property and
