STRAIGHT TICKET 15
C. N. McArthur, Nominee, for
Congress, Notes Marked
. "Top-to-Bottom" Intent.
CUTTING FOLLY LEARNED
Candidate After Tour ot Multnomah
Districts Is Impressed by Desire
or All to Make Votes Count
for Party Issues Clear.
"Never in my 'previous political ex
perience have 1 felt such a. disposition
on the part of Republicans to vote their
ticket straight," said C. N. McArthur,
Republican nominee for Congress in
the Multnomah County district, yester
day. Mr. McArthur has Just completed a
tour of the outlying precincts of the
county and has been pretty well over
Portland and the congested districts
and has met voters of all classes, ide
says the plan of Republicans to sup
port the ticket from "top to bottom"
appears to be almost unanimous.
"I have been through a good many
campaigns," he commented, "but this
is the first time that 1 have seen so
much determination to refrain from
"scratching.' That probably is because
the issues of the campaign are well
denned and people know that to make
their favorite issues prevail they must
support their party ticket in every par
ticular. The Republican voters under
stand pretty well, 1 believe, thathey
cannot make their vote effective by
voting for candidates of two or more
political parties. They appreciate' the
necessity of - supporting the .. whole
ticket from Senator down to Con
stable." One of Mr. McArthur's strongest
platform planks is his expression of
his "abiding faith in, the integrity of
the party under whose guidance our
country has been carried through an
era of progress and prosDeritv unparal
leled in the history of nations."
He is making this fight as a Republi
can, upon a Republican platform, and
he believes the chief issue of the cam
paign to be the question of whether
the laborers and producers o"this coun
try are to enjoy the protection of a
Just and equitable tariff law. He be
lieves that the issue is a simple one.
and is understood by all classes of peo
inis contest is between the two
great representative political parties.
said Mr. McArthurt "The one stands
always and the proof is history for
good government, prosperity and pro
tection to American laborers and pro
ducers; the other for misadminlstra
tion, extravagance, free trade, failure
and the empty dinner pail. I am not
a calamity howler, but, on the other
hand,- am optimistic as to the future
of our country, but believe that the
-best interests of all classes of people
lie in the return of the Republican
party to power.
The empty chimney, the empty
house, the empty bank account and
the empty dinner pail are issues which
cannot be dodged, and no amount of
explaining by Democratic politicians
can convince the rank and file of our
voters that the Democratic tariff bill
and its disastrous results are not the
real issues of the campaign."
Reports concerning the splendid re
ception given Dr. AVithycombe in his
recent visit to Jackson County con
tinue to come into state headquarters
at the Imperial Hotel. The Medford
Bun, in its issue of "October 8. says:

dial welcome throughout the state, is
growing In popularity daily and will

The recent meeting of the County
Central Committee of Jackson County
at Medford was the most successful
held In years. Besides -40 precinct
committeemen, a large number of the
county candidates 'were' . present. A
resolution was adopted unanimously
Indorsing the State Normal at Ash
land, calling on the people of South
ern Oregon to support the initiatory
measure and re-establish the school.
S. S. Smith, committeeman from
Medford, writing to the secretary of
the Republican btate Central Commit
tee concerning the recent meeting,
says in part:
"We certainly had- a rousing Re
publican committee meeting and are
going to whoop it up with a will from'
now until the close of the campaign.
"We were wonderfully surprised at the
number in attendance and the enthus
lasm manifested. The committee Is In
better shape than it has been in this
county for several years."
At the meetings of the Republican
County ,' Central "Committee last n'ght
arrangements were made for a tour of
the eastern precincts of the county

Judge XV. H. Hollis, of Forest Grove,
was a caller at Republican heaaquar
ters, in the Imperial Hotel, yesterday,
and reported normal Republican inter
est in Washington County, which, he
explained, means thai the ticket will
poll up its usual majority this .rail.
"The only trouble with- us is," said
'judge Hollis. "tbat'the candidates all
are passing us up this Fall. Few have
visited Forest Grove, and I don t think
they have treated the rest of the
county much better. The Republicans
know that they will carry the county
anyway, and the Democrats realize.

WOOL PRICES JUMP
British Embargo Has Immedi
ate Effect in America.
DOMESTIC STOCKS LIGHT
Boston Merchants' Holdings Gain
$500,000 in Value Over Night.
Germany Seizes Supplies In
Belgium, France and Russia.
England's embargo on the exportation of
wool, announced In the Associated Press dis
patches a few days ago, was worth $500,000
over night to the wool trade In Boston, ac
cording to the statement of & prominent
wool merchant. , Ha figured that approxl-
mately 50,000,000 pounds of wool under con
trol of Boston merchants had been marked
up at least a cent a pound since the news
of the embargo arrived.. This was the Im
mediate result of the action taken by the
Brltlah Government to conserve its supply
of wool for the manufacture of clothing and
blankets for the soldiers. The second re
sult, ' from the point of view of Sie wool
merchant, will be thatthe trade, instead of
facing a possible loss, la In a good position
to break even and perhaps make some profit
on the high-priced wool it bought before the
recent slump in pricea.
In commenting on the change In the sit
uation, the Boston Transcript says:
Tne British embargo Is better than a
high tariff on woo: for it absolutely cuts off
any immediate importation of wool. The
other countries In the war had an embargo
on wool and wool products long ago; now
England baa refuaed to permit the expor
tation of wool, topa, yarna, etc.. so that the
United States for aome months must exist
on the supply it has In hand. And that
supply is very short: probably the amount
of wool In Boston , is not larger than it
usually is at the first of January. Thus the
altuatibn la that of a reatrlcted aupply and
little prospect of - getting new auppliea for
some months to fill a demand that has been
Increased as a result of the cutting oft of
the Importation (of woolen gooda and an In
creased demand for oui gooda abroad.
"The proapect to the manufacturer of
woolen goods, however. Is quite the reverse.
Many manufacturers believed that at the
wool auctions in London, which opened yes
terday, they would be able to buy their
auppliea ahead. Now they must buy here
and they will have to pay the price that the
wool merchanta ask. Many of them, of
course, have contracts wnlch will not be af
fected by the change In prices of wool, but
those who have to buy from now on will
have their profits cut into and eventually
will have to Increase their prices on gooda
to the conaumer. In the course of events
that the war conditions apparently will
bring about, all sorts of clothing that la
made of wool, except perhapa the finest
grades, will be higher to the conaumer. .
."Along in the Summer wool prices rose
considerably. Then .they slumped on the
expectation of low prices in the London
market. But with the London market cut
off they . are bound to rlae again, though
panic prices are not anticipated.
"The pinch in the mills is likely to come
about the first of the year, and what con
ditions will be then depends to a large ex
tent upon the progreaa of the war in Eu
rope. By the first of - the year, if present
conditions hold, the available wool aupply
In the United States Wall be about used up.
The .wool from Austr.ua. South America
and elsewhere outside our borders cannot
possibly come in any great quantities until
late in February or the first of March, so
there may be. a period when the mills will
hare little material to work upon. Then
the situation may be serious for the manu
facturers and for -the- consumers."
According to the New York Journal of
Commerce. Germany has seized large quan
tities of wool in the raw and partly manu
factured atate lu Prance, Belgium and to
some- extent in Russia, Thia material has
Dttftu -forwarded to Germany, where It Is be
ing worked up into all kinds of fabrics and
garments for military purposes. The amount
of wool and topa seized in France and Bel
gium waa not divulged by the official who
sent- thia highly interesting information. In
one quarter it waa slated that the Germans
had shipped millions of pounds of wool and
topa out of Belgium. Verviers. the leading
woolen manufacturing center of Belgium,
waa denuded of wool auppliea shortly after
tha German army passed, tnrough that city.
The worsted combing, spinning and weav
ing Industries of France are located in the
northern part of the country. Every good
sized" parcel of wool, topa and yarns lying
at Tourconing and Roubaix, it is said, has
been taken over by the Germans. The seiz
ures In Russia were mee at Lodz shortly
after the outbreak of the war.
HOLIDAY OBSERVED IX GRAIN" TRADE,
No Business Pasln2W Local or Country
As yesterday waa a. holiday In the Amer
ican grain markets, no vuslneaa was trans
acted at the Merchanta' Exchange, although
there was a good attewcance of grain men
at the noon hour. The country markets
were also inactive throughout the day. It
was predicted that the Eastern markets
would record a sharp gatnt today as a re
sult of the war developments since Satur
day. -In that event, there may be more, life
to local trading.
Commenting on the demand" for hard
wheat in Italy, the Nazione. of Florence,
says : -
While there is no Immediate need to im
port American wheat for bread making, it la
Important that we showta be in position to
obtain it as a subatltute lor the hard wheat
heretofore imported from Ruasia. the ex
portation of which haa recently been for
bidden by the Ruasian Government. Thia
hard wheat is chiefly used for making
macaroni and other pawtes. and we are led
to suppoae that, once assured of the im
portation of such a commodity from the
United -States, the Italian Government will
proceed to withdraw lta decree forbidding
the exportation of alimentary pastes from
"Prices on the Italian markets for wheat
do not show any activity; they remain calm
and unchanged, and businesa goea on very
slowly because of lack of ready cash. Prices
of 'frumenton' (hard wheat) are decreas
