Republicans and Progressives

COLONEL'S EFFORTS FAIL
Sway ot Taiumauy Still Is Issue in
Democratic Party and President
Is Said to llae Taken
Sides Against Machine.
f NEW YORK, Sept. 27 With this
tate a battleground, where the three
leading parties are engaged In hot van
guard fighting that may have a decis
ive bearing on the Presidential contest
two years hence, the primary com
jaign which will end Tuesday Is ol
jnore than local interest.
J With the Republicans and Progres
sives the present turmoil Is merely a
continuation of the conflict which be
an in Chicago In 1912. With -the Re
publicans and. the Progressives, too,
two principal figures in the struggle
at Chicago two years ago Colonel The
odore Roosevelt and William Barnes
occupy the center of the political stage
in New York State this Fall.
On the Democratic side the continued
itway of Tammany in New York State
politics, on which question issues were
Joined at the Democratic National con
tention in Baltimore two years ago, Is
the sole object of New York's primary
Roosevelt's Effort Kail.
The patient efforts on the part of
Colonel Roosevelt to start in his own
plate a movement looking to a harmo
nious understanding between the Pro
gressives, with a capital "P." and the
progressive element in the Republican
party are a matter of recent political
history. All these efforts came to
naught, partly as a result of the un
yielding attitude of the "Old Guard"
element in the Republican party, head
ed by Mr. Barnes, and which, with the
Republican state committee, consti
tuted as it is at present, still controls
what is somewhat vaguely known in
these direct primary days as the "or
ganization." Colonel Roosevelt's main object, of
course, was to lend impetus to a Nation-wide
movement to purge the Re
publican party of the bosses who had
incurred his wrath.
- First it was ex-Senator Harvey D.
Hinman, ex-chief spokesman of Gov
ernor Hughes in the' State Legislature,
whom the Colonel selected as a likely
candidate of the joint Progressives and
Progressive Republicans. Then came
the unofficial Republican state conven
tion at Saratoga, where a platform was
adopted by men who had been instru
mental in bringing about the repudia
tion of the Colonel by the Republican
National convention in 1912. The
-Progressive platform had not then
been adopted, but it was quite appar
ent that any attempt at standing on
the Saratoga platform and the Pro
gressive would involve the widest
straddle in political history.
Sir. H i ii ni a n Declares Himself.
- Mr. Hinman, in order not to forfeit
all Republican support in the primaries,
was compelled to declare himself In a
manner which. In turn, made it neces
sary for the Colonel to renounce the
ex-spokesman of Governor Hughes.
The abortive attempt to get an open
anti-Barnes and anti-boss declaration
from District Attorney Charles S.
Whitman was followed by some Pro
gressive slate-making at Utica, where
Frederick M. Davenport was selected
as Progressive standard-bearer in the
gubernatorial fight this year. Mr. Da
venport at present is making a vig
orous fight to prevail in the primaries
against Willam Sulzer, the impeached
ex-Governor of New York.
Should Mr. Sulzer win in the Progres
sive primaries, then he will be the rock
-on which the Progressive party in
.Colonel Roosevelt's own state most
surely will go to smash. It may be
.predicted on the best authority that
every man who at present occupies a
position of influence In the Progressive
counsels will leave the party should
Mr. Sulzer be selected.
In the Republican primaries there
will be a three-cornered fight for the
gubernatorial nomination. The three
candidates are District Attorney
Charles S. AVhitman, Harvey D. Hin
man and Job E. Hedges, who In 1912
polled more than 444,000 votes as the
Republican candidate for Governor.
. Mr. Hedges Held Certain Third.
It is regarded as certain that Mr.
Hedges will run third in the primaries
this year and that the real fight is be
tween Mr. Whitman and Mr. Hinman.
The former is looked upon as the or
ganization candidate, while Mr. Hin
man is running on the anti-Barnes ls
eue and is making cosiderable head
way. Mr. Barnes has admitted again
and again that but for his attempt at
an alliance with Colonel Roosevelt, Mr.
Hinman, as the best equipped of the
three candidates for the Governorship,
would have had his Bupport.
In the Democratic primaries John A.
Hennessy, the graft Investigator of ex
Governor Sulzer. and Assistant Secre
tary of the Navy Franklin D. Roose
velt are the anti-Tammany candidates.
Mr. Hennessy is contending with Gov
ernor Martin H. Glynn, the organiza
tion candidate for the Gubernatorial
nomination. Ambassador James W.
Gerard is the rival of Mr. Roosevelt for
he nomination for United States Sena
tor to succeed Senator Root.
President Takes Sides.
When Mr. Hennessy entered the fight
veiled hints, at that time scarcely cred
ited, were heard that the battle against
xammany was Deing waged with the
support of President Wilson. Since
then every indication has borne out the
claim, for the Federal officeholders ap
pointed during the Wilson Administra
tion are taking a very active part in
the fight for the Hennessy-Roosevelt
primary ticket. Every doubt, in fact,
was shattered a few days ago when
word came direct from the White House
that, while In all probability President
muson would refrain from any open
personal indorsement of the candidates.
he was anxious to see both candidates
win, but was especially concerned in
the case of Mr. Roosevelt.
In the Republican primaries there are
indications that District Attorney
Whitman is making the most telling
iignt. bui tne cocksure predictions on
the part of Republican organization
leaders for a Whitman victory never
theless must be received with some de
gree of reservation. -
There have been dickers and deals
disgraceful in their character and
alarming through their nroDOrtions,
"Gum shoe" work has largely taken the
place of that free and open appeal to
ine voters to which it was claimed
the new law would furnish an incentive
and open wide avenues.
At present all political prophecy ends
with primary day. Beyond that turn
'ing point In the campaign all naturallv
-is speculation. But there is plenty of

fish is generally known, but the
killing of a duck by a fish is un
usual. A seven-inch mudcat fish was
caught by a fish duck In the Co

struggles that both w ent
through must have been vicious
and furious, because it ended in
the death of both. The duck, with

The sharp fin of the fish pene

cus. SALEM, Or, Sept. 27 (Special.) On
the eve of the opening of Oregon's State
Fair Salem has become the Mecca of
thousands of enthusiastic Oregonians.
Representatives of all sections of the
commonwealth are here, and all are
singing the praises of the great state
and her products.
It was a busy Sunday at the fair
grounds. Virtually all exhibits had
been placed, but there was much to do
in the way of final touches, and not a
minute could be lost. It has become
commonplace to speak of each succeed
ing fair as the state's "greatest," but
that is the word to use if the meet
which starts at 8 o'clock tomorrow
morning is to be accurately described.
Scope Thia Vear Wider.
It is the greatest In many respects.
It is on a scale larger than any fair
ever held in the state before. A new
150,000 pavilion, filled to overflowing
with the finest products of the state.
will be opened for the first time. There
are other new buildings, and all the old
ones are being used. The eugenics ex
hibition will be on a njuch larger scale
than the one last year the first- held
in connection with the fair. The indus
trial fair exhibits of Oregon's schools
is far superior to that of last year,
when, cramped for space with a part of
the display in a temporary shed and a
part in tents, the children forced atten
tion because of the excellence of their
work. The exhibit was one of the fea
tures of the fair. This year the old
pavilion has been turned over to the
schools and every inch of space Is occu
"I am not bragging, but you can tell
the people of Oregon that they never
had a fair that will equal the one that
starts tomorrow," said Frank Meredith,
secretary, tonight. "It is our biggest
and greatest, and if the weather will
continue as it was today all attendance
records will be smashed. We are in a
fine state of preparedness, and while
there will be work a-plenty tomorrow
to whip things into shape, we never
were further advanced on the day be
fore the opening." '
More than 1500 persons were camped
on the grounds toriTgW. "Mayor" To
iler, of the tent city, 'riaid the popula
tion was a record one for the night be
fore the opening of the fair.
Campers Return Often.
"Tomorrow night, if the weather con
tinues favorable," continued Mr. Tozier,
"there will be more than 3000 persons
camped on these grounds. Do you know
we have campers who have been here
every year for more than one-third of
a century? Ihis is the 44th year for
S. H. McElmurry and family, of Inde
pendence." Among the new features is the auto
mobile show, in which 19 firms have
exhibits of pleasure and commercial
vehicles. Interest Is running high in
racing contests, and the fans are al
ready predicting chat several track
records will be smashed. Trotters and
pacers have been arriving for several
week3, and tonight all stables were
filled with the best horse flesh on the
Coast. Experts say the track is in fine
condition and that light rains would
do it no harm. Among those having
horses on the grounds are W. G. Dur
fee. F. E. Ward, Warren Dennis, Childs
& Anderson, H. II. Helmon, Hi Hogo
boom and C. W. Todd.
Fifteen Counties to, Compete.
About 15 counties will compete for
the county booth prizes. O. E. Frey
tag, in charge of the pavilion where
county exhibits are located, was enthu
siastic in his description of the various
booths. Rivalry is keen and it is safe
to say the judges will have as difficult
a time making a decision as they did
last year, when two counties were tied
for half a day. Among the counties
haing exhibits are Marion, Benton,
Washington, Clackamas, Yamhill. Polk,
Multnomah, Lincoln. Tillamook, Wheel
er, Morrow, Baker, Wallowa,. Malheur
and Union. Private exhibits are by D.
M. Low, Ashland; C. E. Donaldson. Til
lamook; Charles Ogilvey. Pilot Rock,
and J. S. Stewart. Wheeler.
. . Flowers Bloom on Grounds.
Never were the fair grounds more at
tractive than -.they are now. Roses,
dahlias and other flowers are in full
bloom and lawn and parkings are in
While there is a slight decrease in
the entries of horses. Secretary Mere
dith said the registrations in the other
livestock departments were larger than
last year. The hog entries far exceed
ed expectations and additional pens had
to be provided. Cattle registrations
are large and the cattle of superb
quality. Mr. Meredith - is specially
pleased with the dairy department and
says the exhibits of machinery and
other dairy accessories are exception
ally fine and instructive.
The 40-piece Coos Bay Band, which
will furnish the music during the meet,
arrived today and rendered a concert
at the grounds in the afternoon. Al
though the fair will not be opened of
ficially until tomorrow, several thou
sand persons were admitted to the
grounds today, and the band, after re
peated requests, decided to give a concert.

BLAME FOR WAR IS DENIED

NEW YORK, Sept. 27. The Federal
Council of Churches made public to
night a communication received from
29 leading Protestant churchmen of
Germany repudiating in behalf of Ger
man Christianity and the German gov
ernment responsibility for the European
war. and fixing on "those who have
long secretly and cunningly been spin
ning a web of conspiracy against Ger
many which now they have flung over
us in order to strangle us therein."
The communication is addressed "To
the Evangelical Churches Abroad."
"Its warlike tone," says a statement
Issued by the Federal Council, "and
vigorous denunciations of Germany's
opponents is a matter of considerable
surprise to members of the council."
Right to Ask God'i Help Asserted.
"A systematic network of lies," the
communication reads, "controlling the
international telegraph service, is en
deavoring in other lands to cast upon
our people and its government the
guilt for the outbreak of this war. and
has dared to dispute the inner right of
us- and our Emperor to invoke the
assistance of God."
The communication proceeds to point
to Germany's 43 years of peace and to
her material development "in friendly
competition with other people" and
declares that "only under compulsion
to repel a wanton act has she now
drawn the sword."
Her frontiers threatened, Germany
was compelled to protect herself "from
being ravaged by Asiatic barbarism,"
it is declared.
"Over against a world in arms,"
the communication continues, "we rec
ognize clearly that we have to defend
our existence, our Individuality, our

E. V. O'Hara, last night in his sermon
at St. Mary's Cathedral, "but we know
that if morality has a binding force

Audiences are "holding their sides"
with laughter at every performance of
"Dr. Dtppy's Sanitarium," which opened
for the week's run at the Lyric Theater
yesterday. Dr. Tom Smith, the queer
but humorous proprietor of a sani
tarium, is visited by Levi Cohen, a gay
old flirt, Mrs. Cohen and his daughter,
Rosa Cohen, according to the plot, and
their visit nearly drives the doctor
The plot is sweetened by the addltton
of Mr. Magulre, a deaf but good-natured
old man, who falls In love with La
Belle Marie, a Casino dancer. The doc
tor starts a flirtation with Mrs. Cohen
and adds to the thrills. Mr. Magulre
turns his attention to Mrs. Cohen, with
nearly disastrous results. The "dippy"
plot gets deeper when a dinner scene
shows the couples badly mixed, but it
finally "all comes out in the wash."

HOOD RIVER. Or., Sept. 27 (Spe
cial.) The Columbia just north of the
city has receded to a comparatively
narrow channel, which, however, ia
deep. In the early Summer, when the
river is at its greatest height, the
stream is more than a mile wide. Dur
ing low water, the river leaves bare
a huge sand bank several hundred
acres in extent. This sand field, on ac
count of recent changes in the mouth
of Hood River, has increased in area.
The landing place of the Underwood
ferry, usually a quarter of a mile from
the city has been shifted, until now
It is more than a mile.
