Although the Republican state com

United States Senatorship, for which
office Mr. Booth is the Republican di

On account of the intense public in

peeted that the capacity of the theater
will be taxed.
Stenographic reports of the debate
will be made so -that the newspapers
may have opportunity of printing the
speeches in full. The Oregonian has
agreed to print all that each speaker
says pertinent to Mr. Booth's campaign.
In response to the Governor's re

"other charges," Mr. Booth recently in

same platform with him. make the
charges in public and give Mr. Booth
an opportunity of answering them.

Thomas M. Hurlburt, Republican
nominee for Sheriff, has been speaking
In the last few days before various
civic and improvement organizations.
He has addressed scores of women
voters and interested them in his can
didacy. There has been much confusion
among certain voters over the identity
of tiie two Hurlburts-whose names ap
pear on the ballot.
The Republican county committee has
fceen particular to call attention to the
fact that Thomas M. Hurlburt, the
party nominee for Sheriff, is worthy of
and should receive the hearty support
of every Republican, and that C. M.
Hurlburt, who received the nomination
for Representative in the Legislature
from the Multnomah-Clackamas joint
district, has been repudiated by his own
party because he is disqualified.
On account of promises that he made
to introduce a relief bill for a friend
with the understanding that he was to
share in the proceeds, C. M. Hurlburt
will not be able to take his seat, even
if he is elected, the committee points

gubernatorial nominee, will go to
Marion County today to meet the
voters. Dr. Withycombe was in Clack

most of the remaining time in this
campaign to Multnomah County.
A Republican rally will be held by
residents ot South Portland next Mon
day evening in St. Michael's Hall, on
Hall street, between Fourth and Fifth
streets. It is probable that R. A. Booth,
Dr. Withycombe. C. N. McArthur, nom
inee for Congress, Thomas M. Hurl
burt and others will speak.
A number of Democratic speakers
were heard last night in the Giencoe
School, Fast Forty-ninth and Belmont
streets. Colonel Robert A. Miller, one
of the Democratic candidates for Gov

speaker. Others who spoke were Mrs.
Agnes McNaughton, Mrs. Nellie C.

Half, a dozen speakers addressed an
audience in the Fast Side Library last
night in the interests of William Han

Ben Reisland, G. A Johnson, Miss
Helen C. Wilson, Mrs. William Millar
and Anne Shannon Monroe. Music was
furnished by Miss Kdith Clark Patter

boxing. Patrick Powers, W. P. Lillia
and Edward J. Ryan had charge of the
entertainment features. John Kenny,
president of the Irish-American Fellow
ship Club, presided.
Prompt investigation revealed to the

'Union County will deliver a hand
some majority for the Republican can

or La Grande, who was in Portland
yesterday. "A far as Eastern Oregon
is concerned, this is a Republican year,
liven Baker County, which has been
somewhat of a Democratic stronghold,
will give a majority for the leading
Republican candidates, in my opinion.
"In regard to the Senatorial situa

vote for Mr. Booth. Umatilla and Union
counties will give him large majori

Wallowa County will give a good ac
count of itself and we count on Baker

Withycombe should carry Umatilla, Dr.
Smith's home county.

enemy of Albert, set it.

the two made up at that time, in which
claim was made for tiii on clothing
and other effects damaged by fire. .
A number of suits of clothes belong
ing to Albert and dresses, the property
of his wife, were on this list. But
although the defendant was questioned
persistently by Deputy District Attor
ney Collier in regard to this clothing,
he could not remember where or when
he had bought a single suit. He also
bought the dresses for his wife, he tes
tified, but he could not recall where
they were purchased.

bought the clothing, the state would

single closet, the exact measurements
of which were but a trifle over 2 by 4
The defendant outlined his alibi
yesterday in full. The day and night
of the fire he was at his store and
at the home of a friend where a party
was held to announce his sister's en
gagement. This part of his story
came rippling from his tongue; the
narrative did not halt and turn as in
the attack of the prosecution on cross
examination. Philip Davis, at that period of his
checkered career an industrious milk
man, who exercised his firebug pro
clivities as a side line, testified he was
Albert's landlord until a few weeks be
fore the fire and that Albert suggested
to him they have a fire, burning the
tenant's furniture and the landlord's
house, thereby collecting royally from
the insurance companies. Davis ta
booed this suggestion, be said. Shortly
afterward Albert moved to the Sumner
street residence, two blocks away,
where the fire was.
Grad;e Is Allcgrd.
Albert said on the stand yesterday
that he needed a larger house and
moved for that reason. Leaving the
Davis house vacant, he said, angered
his former landlord and he held a
grudge against him.
Davis admitted his criminal propen
sities in the arson line yesterday while
on the tand. He maintained that, al

though it was new to him, he was tell
ing the truth, willing to try it for a
change and see bow It works.
The defense has a number of wit
nesses, who will testify that Davis is
a bad character and unworthy of be
lief. John Ditchburn, an attorney, was
the first .of these and his testimony
concluded yesterday's session. He said
the reputation of Davis is bad and he
would not believe him under oath.

There is a fascination about playing the Haines
Bros.' Player Pianos which appeals to all classes,
not only to' those whose musical education has
been neglected, but particularly to cultivated mu

of all the great masters, when, formerly, they
could play but a comparatively few.
The Haines Bros.' Player Piano will impart a
