Southern Senator, Visiting
Here, Refuses to Leave
i. Without Granddaughters."
JOY WRITTEN ON THE FACES OF THE CHILDREN WHO WENT TO M'MINNVILLE ON THE SOUTHERN
TRIP TO ALASKA PLANNED
Government Railroad Project to Be
Studied While on Pleasure Out
ing in Xorth Summer to
Be Passed In Portland.
Although Ex-President Roosevelt and
Senator Tillman, of South. Carolina, are
deadly political enemies, and there Is
no love lost between them, there is one
principle to which they heartily agree.
And that is that grandf atherhood is
the highest form of enjoyment.
When the Colonel was here the other
day he iterated and reiterated his su
preme pleasure in being a grandfather.
And here Is Senator Tillman, who ar
rived in Portland last week as a mere
incident on his trip to Alaska, refusing
to leave town now unless he can take
liis grandchildren along.
The Senator's grandchildren are the
bright and Interesting daughters of
Mr. and Mrs. Henry W. Hughes, of 1124
East Davis street. Mrs. Hughes is the
daughter of Senator and Mrs. Tillman,
and Mr. Hughes is assistant cashier of
the Hibernian Savings Bank.
Senator Would Shift Blame.
Mr. and Mrs. Tillman, with their un
married daughter. Miss Sally May Till
man, came to Portland last Friday from
Ban Francisco, intending to remain
here only a few days before proceeding
to Alaska. It was the first time that
the Senator had seen Adeline, the
youngest of the Hughes children. The
attachment between them was almost
Instantaneous and apparently mutual.
When the Senator completed plans
for his Alaskan trip yesterday after
noon he provided accommodations not
only for himself, Mrs. Tillman and Miss
Tillma, but for Mrs. Hughes and the
two Hughes children as well.
"What's the matter. Senator? Can't
you go without the grandchildren?"
one of his friends asked him.
"Well, Mrs, Tillman refusei tn -
without them." he parried, trying to
shift the blame, but the tenderness
with which he surveyed the pair of
youngsters betrayed his own influence
in including them in the party.
They will leave Portland tonight,
and proceed as far as Skagway. While
the trip is intended wholly for pleas
ure, the Senator expects to give official
attention to the plans for the new rail
road that the Government is going to
build in Alaska. After that they are
coming back to Portland and remain
here for the greater part of the Sum
mer and early FalL
Scenery to Be Viewed Later.
"I expect then to see something of
the scenery around here that everyone
has been boasting about." drawled the
Senator yesterday. Mr. and Mrs
Hughes have planned to take him and
Mrs. Tillman over the Columbia High
way and over some of the other at
tractive drives hereabouts.
Since his arrival last Friday the
Senator has received many friends and
admirers at the Hughes home. Among
the first to call on him was ex-Senator
C. W. K"ulton, who served with him m
the Senate, and who, although of oppo
site political party, became a warm
friend of the South Carolinan. Sen
ator Harry Lane also visited him the
other day. Among his other callers
was Postmaster Frank S. Myers. Sen
ator George E. Chamberlain sent his
regrets, being out of the city on busi
ness. He expects to see Senator Till
man when he returns.
Besides these callers the fiery South
erner has been visited by many who
never saw him before, but who came to
pay their respects merely because they
admired his course in Congress. Added
to these were a few favor-seekers, who
think hat Senator Tillman is in posi
tion to help them secure positions from
the Government. All of such, of course
were referred to the Oregon Senators!
Senator Tillman, displayed only a
passing interest in the presence here
the other day of Colonel Roosevelt The
Colonel and the South Carolina Sena
tor never could get along. All the
while Mr. Roosevelt was President
(Senator Tillman refused to enter the
An interesting anecdote in this con
nection relates Senator Tillman called
on President Taft early on the morning
after his inauguration.
"I merely wanted to see a gentleman
in the White House," was the Senator's
biting comment on that occasion.

EUGENE, Or., July 22. (Special.)
Dale Guffy and his wife separated in
Iowa and went their respective ways.
Kach assumed that the other had ob
tained a divorce and each married
Both are now charged with bigamy.
This unusual story was unfolded in the
office of J. M. Devers, District Attor
ney, today, following the arrest two
weeks ago of Dale Guffy at Pendleton,
charged with bigamy.
On January 24 he married Neva
Blanton in Eugene, following the re
port that his wife had obtained a di
vorce. Relatives in this city wrote of
the marriage to his wife in the East,
and she also considered that she had
been divorced, and was married again
In Centervllle, la., February 17.
The bigamy charge was sworn to
against Guffy by E. F. Blanton, brother
of Guffy's second wife.
His bonds have been fixed at $1500,
but probably will be reduced so that
he can be released to support his sis

action of the grand Jury.

"Gee. I wish we could do this
oftener." was the joyous and care-free
hope of 630 children, voiced by a lad
of 7 rolling on the McMinnville green
They didn't come in silk nor private
nor luxurious automobiles, these chil

well-starched but cast-off garments
and old, misfit shoes, but they did ride
on the train, for the Southern Pacific
took the little ones, their tired mothers
and the nurses and matrons in charge
In ten big, red steel cars, and these
children, wide-eyed and bubbling over
with excitement, had a merry day.
They had come so early to be in time
for the train, which left Fourth and
Tamhill at 9 o'clock, and at every win
dow eager faces of every conceivable
child type beamed as the long train
drew out. Not a moment of the two
hour trip to. McMinville was without
a thrill and Its enjoyment. For the
first time in their none too happy and
pinched little lives these youngsters
enjoyed to the fullest extent a "real
McMinnville Welromea Children.
On arriving at McMinnville the large
party of small picknickers and their
kind custodians were met by -genial
Mayor Tilbury. Councilman G. W. Hen

Minnville Woman's Civic Improvement
Club. Justice of the Peace L. S. Hop
field joyously loaded 11 supremely
happy youngsters in his automobile
and whisked them off for a spin about
the pretty little city.
On arriving at the city auditorium,
various women in charge, aided by the
Civic Improvement Club, began lunch
preparations, and 300 strong the
youngsters took to the nine-acre park,
where they occupied themselves with
the caged bears, foxes, the twin fawns
the black swans and the swings and"
slides. At 1 o'clock the call for lunch
was sounded and a scurrying of hungry
children ended up at the long, laden
tables, where the dainties prepared and
donated by business men were eagerly
It was a Joy during the afternoon to
see. the youngsters happy with the ice
cream cones, which are not usual on
their limited bills of fare.
Under the shade trees weary mothers
for the first time in months, and in
many cases in years, stretched out for
real relaxation, while Infants in arms
peacefully slept in the breeze. Many
pale, pinched little faces were wreathed
in broad smiles, and emaciated, ill-clad
little figures romped and wrestled in
perfect abandon, while the woods rang
with shrill cries and laughter.
Mr. Hendershot, who is known as
"Dad" of the park and McMinnville in
general, became a literal "dad" to the
kiddies, and found unaffected pleas
ure showing the picturesque park to
both big and small visitors.
Horn pi imc Children Are Joyous.
One small boy of nine, hanging by
the seat of his trousers in a tree,
called out In glee: "I don't care, this Is
the first time I ever climbed a tree,
and I like it." A littl gipsy, with
eyes like agates and bobby curls, with
all her seven years of energy kept,
busy rounding up the assorted crowd
of children representative of almost
every race and nationality to play

composed of Miss Ruth Dillon, Mrs.
Phlllipp Deshner and Miss Clara

Associated Charities the mothers and
children were accompanied by Miss
Faye Meyer, Mrs. Eva Pllsburv. Miss
Anna Murphy, Mrs. Clarence Realties,
miss Helen vv hltney, Mrs. May Carney,
Mrs. A. Sailor and Miss Juanita
Boya Want to Go Baric to S1L.
Mrs. R. E. Bondurant had charge of
half a dozen boys from the Juvenile
Court who are anxious to be exponents
of the back-to-the-soil movement and
some of whom will remain in McMinn
ville for that purpose. Mrs. Berth
Davis- had charge of a good sized as
semblage from the People's Institute.
Miss Helen Haynes represented the
visiting nurses. Samuel D. White, from
the Frazer Detention Home, not only
went along to help the 67 of the
Juvenlla Court boys have a good out
ing, but mingled with the children
to keep order. But seldom Is as well
behaved a mass of children brought to
gether, as these poor little unspoiled,
happy creatures proved themselves.
During the hot hours of the after
noon the guests had recourse to the
great tanks of excellent "McMinnville
butter milk," which the Elks had pro
vided and the orange punch and lemon

Club served Of this club. Mrs. F. H.
Buchanan is president and Mrs. Lulu

see that all were safely aboard, and
Traveling Passenger Agent William
Jenkins and Assistant Superintendent
G. C. Morris Journeyed to McMinnville,
where they remained all day, making
themselves useful and enjoyable to
hosts of their small guests.
Long before 6 o'clock regret at the
coming departure was made evident
by the tears of scores of children, who
were being collected, for the return.
But the thought of another ride mo
mentarily made up for this. It was a
great day for the kiddles, and all were
happy on their return trip to the va

Skamania County's Bond Sale
for $210,000 First Step
Toward Long Highway.
MOVE AFFECTS PORTLAND
Rich Territory tar Into Washington
to Be Opened by Route and
Work Is Kxpeoted to Start
Within Next rVw Week.
A new highway alone; the Columbia
River from Portland far Into Klick
itat County. Washington. Is assured
br the recent sale of S210.000 In bonds
by Skamania County to the Lumber
merit s Trust Company of Portland.
With the proceeds from this bond
sale the Skamania County people ex
pect to construct a road along the
southern border of their county skirting-
the banks of the Columbia River
and connecting? with the Clarke County
road on the west and the Klickitat
County road on the east.
When the Interstate bridge Is com
pleted this new hi nil way will afford
direct access from Portland Into a rich
and fertile country that now larks de
velopment only because It lacks ade
quate transportation facilities.
The Portland Chamber of Commerce
has been officially advised of Ska
mania County's action and ia expected
soon to make formal recognition. It
Is pointed out that this territory la
directly tributary to Portland, and that
Its development will be of substantial
benefit to this city.
White Salasoa-Lyle Road Waatcd.
The proposed new read to be built
from the money accruing from the
bord sale will connect with the state
highway at Prindle and paa through
Butler. Table Rock. Stevenson. Carson
and Collins, with its eastern terminus
at Underwood, on the west shore of
the White Salmon River. White Sal
mon la on the east bank of the river,
and a movement now is on foot to
obtain an appropriation from the
Washington State Legislature in 117
for construction of a first-class road
from White Salmon to Lyle. Although
thao two towns are only 10 miles apart
the present road Is S3 miles long and
difficult for automobile travel, and
even worse for horse-drawn vehicles.
East of Lyle a first-class road, built
by convict labor under direction of
Major i. L. Bowlby when he was State
Highway Commissioner in Washington,
extends for to miles.
It Is pointed out that this road can
easily be extended to connect with
Samuel Hill's model highways, thus af
fording a continuous stretch of modern
highway from, Portland to Uoldcndale.
The good roads enthusiast predict that
within a few years this road will lead
directly to Spokane and other parts of
the Inland Kmplre.
It Is probable that Skamania County
III start its road constriction work
within a few weeks as soon as con
tracts can be let so that the grading
can be completed before the Kail rains
begirt. By allowing it to settle through
the Wlntr It Is expect. I that the new
road will be open and ready for traffic
early next Spring.
Rapid Devrlopaneat Predicted.
Weat of Prindle. where the new road
will, start. Is a good highway, con
structed by the state. leading to
Washougal. This road negotiates Cape
Horn, that rocky promontory through
which the North Bank road drove an
expensive tunnel, on a grade that docs
not exceed & per cent.
Thus, when the new Skamania County
project Is completed. Portland will have
direct access to all the territory on
the north hank of th Columbia as far
eart as the White Salmon i::trr. .V
rapid development of that reslon is ex
pected as a direct result.
Since Multnomah and Hood River
counties In tlrcKon combined to build
the Columbia Itlver Highway on the
south siile of the river, ihe people on
the north bank of the Columbia have
been eaxer to parallel the ro;i.l tnere.
It is raid that the north Lank road
offers as many s.-enic attractions as
does the new highway on the i-oum
sid of the stream.
The advantages to tourl.-u In travel
ing up the river on one side, ferrying
across and returning to I'ortland on
the otner side also were pointed out
as an argument in favor of the bonda.
