PARTY PLUM HIPPED
Bank Examiner Choice Causes
State Democrats to Mourn.
LOSS OF "PULL" INDICATED
Recall of Appointment of Pennsyl
vania Man January 1 Reported,
but Rumored Successor Is .
No More Pleaslns.
Why was It necessary for the 'Con
troller of the Currency to go to Penn
sylvania to get s National bank ex
aminer for Oregon? '
This is a question that a good many
Oregon people ara pondering over ever
since J. M. Logan.- of Lancaster. Fa
was appointed examiner to succeed L.
L. Mulit, ,wno resigned the place to
become a'lce-presldent of the North
western National Bank.
Those who are acquainted with the
manner in which Federal appointments
are msde perceive, in this appointment,
a rebuke of those Federal officials who
sre supposed to control political ap
pointments in uregon.
And principal among mose- r eoerai
officials who are supposed to exercise
such control are two whose names are
familiar to almost every Oregon voter
George C Chamberlain and Harry
Oregon Democrats Puaxled.
Why Senator Chamberlain and Sen
ator Lane, jointly or otherwise, did not
obtain the appointment of an Oregon
man to this Oregon position is some
thing that has caused more than one
Oregon Democrat to ponder.
It is understood, too, mat oom sen
ators made hard enough efforts to have
an Oregon man appointed.
And that Is Just what is worrying
the Oregon Democrats.
If they hadn't tried they would have
laid it to pure negligence. But know
ing that they tried, they are begin
ning to suspect that one or the other
of the Senators has lost his "pull" back
Moreover. It Is known to those on
the Inside that they both tried and that
they tried hard to land tne place tor t
deserving Oregon Democrat."
Washington Sliest to Pleas.
While It la not unusual for the Treas
ury Department to go outside of a dis
trict to get a National bank examiner,
the procedure in the Oregon case, it is
pointed out. was wholly unexpected
both to the bankers and to the Fed
eral officeholders In this territory.
Mr. Mulit's resignation was readily
grasped as a means of obtaining more
patronage . for the party organization
In this state. Senator Chambarlai.i
and Senator Lan, it Is understood, be
gan immediate correspondence with
Controller Williams and Secretary Mc
Adoo. They wanted to have the ap
pointment go to some qualified m.-in
who would be able to "do something

PlTheir communications met with no
ready response at Washington, it
seems, but they kept the mails and tel
egraph wires hot. ' '
But disappointment and chagrin
were their lot. Mr. Logan's, appoint
ment was heralded from Washington
and he will come to Portland wtthln
the next few weeks to take up his
Comforting Element I Felt.
However, there is a comforting ele
ment In the situation. It is reported
that Mr. Logan's appointment will be
recalled about January 1 and that he
wUl go back to his present post in
Yet this probability does not present
all the comfort that Is apparent on the
surrace. It is said that H. E. Albert,
formerly of Salem, and now National
bank examiner at Milwaukee. Wis.,
will bo returned to Portland to succeed
Mr. Albert, who Is a son of J. H. Al
bert, a well-known Salera banker, was
appointed a bank examiner at the
same time that Mr. Mulit origina.ly
was appointed. Mr. Mulit was given
the vacancy that then existed in Ore
gon and Mr. Albert waji sent to TV i
consln. It is known that he is eager
to return. '
But his return will not satisfy tha
local Democratic organization. They
point out that it will not-"take care
of any of those Democrats who are
"deserving" of preference and whose
appointment might "help the Adminis
tration." PORTLAND WOODMEN WIN
