Dr. Cos Holds Progressives
Yet Are Big Factor. '
REPUBLICAN RANKS DRAW
Absolute Elimination of Reaction
ary Principles Declared Essential
to Prevent Being Wiped Out
by the Democrats. '
That it is not a time for abandoning;
the good ehip Progressive Party, but
Is rather an occasion for awaiting;
lve!opments six months will bring;,, is
the belief of Dr. Henry Waldo Coe.
National committeeman for Oregon of
the little third party that is fast be
coming a waif in American politics.
. Dr. Coe says that he has no present
expectation of rejoining; the Republican
ranks. . However, he says he wants to
do what Is best for the country and
should it become obvious that the
Republican party is intent upon true
reform, borne out by the nomination
of 'a Presidential candidate who is not
reactionary and the enunciation of
a platform that is acceptable to those
In the PrORTesslve ranks, it would be
'& sore temptation to return to the
party in which he labored long; and
Republicans la Progressive Ranks..
The Progressive party, he says, is
composed of a mobile army that is, in
large part, in the Republican ranks,
but the Roosevelt organization, he be
lieves, represents a determined protest
against the tendencies of Republican
ism of the past few years and this
large element of Republicans will be
Jn open revolt if a satisfactory man
Is not named and a suitable platfrom
is not framed. In this way, believes
Dr. Coe, the Progressives will be a
decided factor at the next election.
"The Progressive party," said Dr.
Cot, "is built on great moral prin
ciples in which the mass of the people
ore deeply interested. If the Repub
licans are going back to the practices
of the past, if they put up a reactionary
for President and -the platform is re
pctlonary, then, whether there Is a
Progressive party or not, the Repub
licHn party will be swept off the earth
by the Democrats.
"The Republican party today Is re
actionary. Men of that tendency are
in the saddle and it Is as natural for
them to carry out reactionary prin
ciples as it is for them to breathe. I
have been a Republican almost all my
life. I am proud of the traditions of
the party and its glorious history. But
tho party got into wrong hands, and
I fpe at present no tendency of getting
cut of that control.
Principles Pnt Above Success.
"The Progressive party is the only
prty, outside tfce Socialist party, that
offers much chance to the fellow who
Is squeezed against the wall. I feel I
have as much right to speak for the
Republicans as for the Progressives,
for 1 worked with that party for a
"The feeling out of sentiment that
Is now going on is an encouraging
thing. There is some degree of frank
ness and earnestness to be noticed in
these expressions. I believe that Mr.
Hughes would not be an objectionable
candidate if the platform were right.
The Progressive party is working more
lor its principles than for party success."

EXIT OF 75 BARS IS DUE
Ilcensc Collector Predicts Decrease
In Saloons In July.
Tf estimates of City License Col
lector Hutchinson prove correct, Port
land will lose T5 of its present saloons
on July 1 of this year. Mr. Hutchln
ron reported yesterday that as a result
of a check of the saloon business lie
fully expects the number to decrease
from the present total of 327 to 252
when the date arrives for the payment
of the license fee for the last six
months of 1915.
Mr. Hutchinson says many saloons
are losing money at present and are
remaining in business only because they
have their licenses paid for up to July
1. All payments of the second half
year llclfcse must be made before June
3S. according to the liquor ordinance
of the city.

BRIDGE DANGER STIRS
MR. DIECK ORDERS INVESTIGATION
OF COST OF KIKE WALLS.
Recent Blazes' Might. Have Caused
Damage or Entire Losi of Span,
As a result of a fire late yesterday
at the west approach of the Hawthorne
Bridge which threatened to spread to
the bridge. City Commissioner JUieck
has ordered an investigation to de
termine the cost of putting in fire
walls or taking other steps to safe
guard the bridge. Need of such pro
tection was seen in the fire yesterday
and that at Albers Brothers' mill near
the Broadway Bridge lait Sunday. -
Commissioner Dieck-says the bridge
approaches are of wooden construction
and are not protected from fire which
might start in adjacent buildings. Mr.
Dieck says there would be nothing to
stop a fire from sweeping the entire
waterfront and burning out the ap
proaches of all the bridges. Robert E.
Kremers, chief of the Municipal Bureau
of Highways and Bridges, has been as
signed to make the investigation. -
At the fire yesterday it was reported
that had the blaze not been checked
when it was. it would have caught the
underpart of the bridge approach and
within a few minutes would have
burned out the entire approach and
closed the bridge for an indefinite
Need of fire protection on the bridges
has been called to the attention of the
City Council upon numerous occasion
but nothing has been done. It was re
ported by Mr. Dieck that had the Al
bers Brothers fire of Sunday not been
checked in time one span of the Broad
way Bridge might have been lost. He
says there was nothing to prevent the
bridge from catching fire from the
frame structures near it.
