Only Disconcerting Feature Is
Increased Majority to Be
l t Overcome in Senate.
32 TERMS EXPIRE IN 1917
Of 17 Democratic Expirations Two
Tears Hence Only Four Are Con
' eidered Safe and Vive Are at
Outs With Administration.
OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Nov. 16. From a Republican
standpoint, the only unsatisfactory re
sult of the recent election was the in
crease of the Democratic majority in
the United States Senate. At no time
during the late campaign did the Re
publicans entertain even a remote hope
of being able to get control of the next
Benate, for most of the Democratic Sen
ators seeking re-election hailed from
the. South and were sure of being re
turned. But the Republicans did ex
pect to be able to hold their own in the
Senate, so that in 1916, by defeating six
Democratic Senators, they would get
control of the upper branch of Con
press. To capture the next Senate, the
Republicans, two years hence, must re
elect their own Senators, and defeat
Bine of the opposition.
The terms of 32 Senators will expire
March 3. 1917. Of those .whose terms
then expire, 17 are Democrats. 14 are j
jtepu oilcans ana one, r-oinaexier, or
Washington, Progressive. Senator
Clapp, of Minnesota, while styling him
self a Republican, is really as much a
Progressive as Poindexter. Clapp is
among those to be up for re-election in
Seats Doubtful in 1917.
Two years hence, only four of the
17 Democrats will be absolutely sure of
re-election. On the basis of the recent
election returns, the 14 Republicans
would seem to be reasonably sure of
re-election; some of the Democrats are
from states demonstrated to be uncom
fortably close, viewed from -the Demo
cratic standpoint, and in other states
the fight gives promise of being inter
esting from all angles.
Senators Bryan, of Florida; Culber
son, of Texas, Swanson, of Virginia, and
Williams, of Mississippi, will be re
elected, or will be succeeded by other
Democrats. The Democratic Senators
who will face hard contests in the next
ABhurst, Arizona; Chilton, West Virginia;
Hitchcock, Nebraska; Johnson, Maine; Kern,
Indiana; Lea. Tennessee; Lee, Maryland:
Martine, New Jersey; Myers, Montana;
O'Oorman, New York; IMttman, Nevada;
Pomerene, Ohio; Reed, Missouri.
On this list are five Senators who are
decidedly at odds with the Adminis
tration, Insurgents, so to speak. Sena
tors Hitchcock, Martine, O'Gorman,
Pomerene aiyl Reed have differed rad
ically with the President many times
during the past two years.
Administration Against Three.
Senator O'Gorman and Senator Pom
erene probably will have the Adminis
tration support when they come up for
renomlnation, notwithstanding past
differences, but the Influence of the
Administration will be against Sena
tors Reed, Hitchcock and Martine, the
latter from the President's own state.
These three Senators refused flatly to
wear the Administration yoke, and re
fused to be bound by caucus action,
even when the Administration directed
the calling of caucuses to promote
strict party legislation.
In addition to these three seats. Re
publicans doing long range figuring
think they have good prospects of
electing Senators in West Virginia,
Maine, Indiana, Montana, New York,
Nevada and Ohio.
Republican politicians are confident
of success In 1916, and among Demo
crats there is an anxiety not seen be
fore the election.
Another thing that is disconcerting
to the Democrats is the recognized
failure of the Underwood tariff law.
and the prospect that the country will
continue to operate under that law for
the next two years. There is no idea
of revising the Underwood law, and no
idea of repealing the war tax law, not
withstanding their unpopularity, and
after those laws have been in operation
for another two years. Democrats of the
more conservative type are fearful that
the revulsion of sentiment will be
strong enough not only to elect a Re
publican President and Republican
House, but possibly a Republican Sen
ate as well.

Judge Bean Says Harbor Is
Responsible for Vessels
Pulled by Its Tugs.
rfSUM YET TO BE FIXED
Damages Resulting From Wreck of
Tlilerbck and Tliode Fagelund at
Astoria to Be Levied Against
Port of Portland.
All damages resulting from the col
lision of the Norwegian bark Thielbek
and the German steamer Thode Fage
lund, in Astoria harbor August 24, 1913,
must be paid by the Port of Portland,
according to a decision handed down
by Judge Bean in United States JDis
trict Court yesterday. t
The decision establishes the respon
sibility of the Port of Portland for
damages to vessels and shipping un
der its charge.
The Thode Fagelund was being
towed by the Ocklahama, a Port of
Portland tug, and was in charge of Pi
lot rfolan. employed by the Port, when
she struck the Thielbek. Thus, Judge
Bean held, the Port was responsible
for the damage, which amounted to
about ?20,000 to the Thode Fagelund
and J1500 to the Thielbek. Damages
also are. asked by the DuPont Powder
Company, which owned the cargo car
ried by the Thode Fagelund, and by
W. R. Grace & Company, who had the
steamer under charter.
The amount of the damages was not
fixed by Judge Bean's decree, which
leaves this tp a commissioner, or to
the court in case a commisioner can
not be selected by the contesting
Judge Bean also held that the dam
ages should be allowed under admiral
ty rules and not under statute, which
makes it possible for more than $10,000
to be collected.
The owner of the Thielbek was rep
resented in the case by Erskine Wood,
of Wood, Montague & Hunt. W. C.
Bristol represented the Knohl-Bur-chard
Company, of Hamburg, owner
of the Thode Fagelund. The Port of
Portland was represented by Wirt Mi
nor, of Teal, Minor & Winfree.
SAILORS "WOULD ' STAT H'KKF,
Friend Retains Attorney for Fight
ing Tars Held in Jail.
Legal action is to' be the next step
in an attempt to free four sailors of the
Russian ship Thomasina, arrested Fri
day after attacks on the mates and
Captain FTederlckson. The men are
Finns and a fellow countryman report
ed at the harbor patrol station yester
day that he had retained counsel and
every effort would be made to have the
sailors jpaid -off, the argument being
that they should not be compelled to
risk their lives in time of war when not
actually engaged in hostilities. The men
are to be held in jail until the ship is
ready for sea.
Captain Frederickson was noncom
mittal as to whether he would resist
paying off the men. So long as the
Thomasina is under the Russian flag
she is subject to capture by German or
Turkish vessels and along the water
front it is held that while the four
Finns might be saved the danger, the
men who would replace them also would
be taken, though they could demand
release if not subjects of the countries
at war. The fight aboard Friday is
said by the men to have grown from
the fact the second mate ordered them
out of the galley.

it interfered with the vessel's speed
to an extent. The vessel will be out
of service only a day or two. The
manner in which the wheel was struck
led to the belief that the obstruction
was probably a hemlock butt or other
heavy log floating just beneath the
surface, so that it was not. seen. The

In heavy hardware there is a better

one Portland firm yesterday completed
placing orders for 600 tons of steel,
much of which will be distributed from
here on arrival. In a short time the
steamship schedule will be decreased
so a vessel will arrive every 10 days,
and that is looked upon as a card to be
preferred during the Winter, as larger
cargoes will be handled and shippers
will have abundant opportunity be

WEST FEEDS BRITISH
Oristano to Leave Port With
Heavy Grain Cargo.
LOAD BIGGEST ON RECORD
Edward A. Strauss, Cereal Buyer
and Member of Parliament, Xe
gotiatcs Deal for Armies
With Northwest Firms.
Oregon oats for cavalry and artil
lery of the British forces now engaged
with the French and Belgians against
the German army, 3000 tons in all,
will be cleared aboard the British
steamer Oristano today, the vessel
being sent to Queenstown for orders,
after which she will proceed to a
port the army heads mav direct. ' In
addition to oats she carries wheat that
increases her load to 3400 tons.
It is the first time In the history of
the grain trade that oats have been
exported in such quantity from the
Northwest to the European Continent.
The transaction was arranged through
Edward A. Strauss, head of the well
known grain firm of Strauss & Co.
and a member of Parliament, who is
handling large shipments of war sup
plies for the English troops. The cargo
was assembled here by the Northern
Grain & Warehouse Company on North
Bank dock, where it was loaded on the
Oristano. J. P. Livingston, of San
Francisco, general Pacific Coast agent
for Strauss & Co.. came here to
superintend the loading of the oats and
will remain until the Oristano is
started for sea tomorrow.
The firm yesterday chartered the
Danish steamer Nordfarer, a carrier
of B3S7 tons, net register, which will
load cereals here in January. The
Northern Grain & Warehouse Company
would not disclose the rate or exact
character of cargo she was to work
here. The vessel last was reported at
Calcutta September 18 and is now on
By the time the Nordfarer Is dis
patched there will have been about a
dozen carriers, loaded for the Strauss

follow the Oristano, while they sent the
Norwegian bark Alcldes away In Sep
tember and the British steamer Ven

have the British steamer Lowther
Range here in addition to the Oristano.
Strauss & Co. is rated one of the
largest hop and brewery supply con
cerns In Europe and in the past has
drawn heavily from California and the
Northwest in barley. Last season an
agency was established here by Mr.
Livingston and on his return to San

It is. regarded doubtful if chartering
will be active soon, unless there are
changes in the grain market. In 1912
the highest rate paid was B0 shillings,
and during the 1913-14 season 42s 6d
was paid for sailers. The freight is
not high compared with what has been

SILUTARY MEX MAY VISIT HERE
Xaval Visitors to 1915 Fair to Be
Invited to Rose Festival.
Oregon naval militiamen are work
ing quietly on plans to draw their
brethren of other states, notably those
of the Atlantic seaboard, to Portland
lrom the 1915 fair, which is the ob
jective point of several cruises. The
Navy Department has ordered that
midshipmen trom Annapolis cruise
through the Canal to the exposition,
getting under way in June.
Besides these features, a strong ef
fort will be made to have the Navy
represented here during the Rose Fes
tival. Last season there was no vessel
available for the Summer show be
cause the fleet was busy in Mexican
waters and Oregon had been favored
in having her militiamen sent to Hono
lulu on a cruise. For the 1915 cruise,
the Oregon Naval Militia has selected
a run to California, part of the time to
be passed at the exposition, and other
ports will be visited, but time between
those harbors is to be devoted to hard
work at sea in drilling and ma
neuvering. DREDGE SLIP FOR CAT ANN' A
Commission Delays Dock. Project to

As shoal water between the dock 'of
the Willamette Iron & Steel Works and
the Oregon drydock prevented the dam
aged steamer Santa Catalina being
warped into a berth, the Commission
of Public Docks yesterday consented to
the dredge Titan being withdrawn from
the slip at the north end of Municipal
Dock No. 1, where she is digging a
basin, and shifted to the Willamette
plant for a few days. Material she re
moves there will be dumped on barges
and discharged' so as to complete a

Many idle men are applying at the
Willamette Iron & Steel Works for jobs
on the Catalina, but at present only
a limited number can be used in tear

lost In getting the contract under way.
and by the time scars of the fire are
removed new parts will be in shape for

S. S. S., the famous blood purifier. It
rushes Into the blood and in three min
utes has traversed the entire circulation.
It penetrates to where the blood Is made.
It washes out those spots and places
where stagnation has settled, it cleanses
the membranes, drives irritation from
the joints, fills the blood stream with
antidotal Influence and from head to foot
creates conditions that make for blood
health. There are people In every com
munity wno Know this to. be true. They
have used S. S. S. for severe forms of
rheumatism, for Indolent, ulcerated spots,
for eruptive skin diseases, for any and

the stomach and has therefore been the
refuse of a host of people misguided In
their dilemma by first flying to those
danjrerous mercurial drugs which have
claimed so many unfortunates. If the
skin breaks out in a rash, if bolls or
other eruptions appear, if there are blood
risings or any other Indications of im
pure blood get a bottle of S. S. S. at
once of any druggist. But beware of
substitutes. If In doubt as to your tron-

delay to get a bottle of S. S. S. today.
