' BY HARRY M. GRAYSON.
The last of the week-end parties on
the McKenzie River returned yester
day. Two or three teams of anglers
who intend to spend the week-end
still are to be accounted for, but they
have no doubt become so enthusiastic
that we will have to brand them as
Aaron Frank, Dick Carlon and R. D.
Carpenter reported back to their busi
ness duties yesterday morning with
90 trout in their creels. All but two
were redsides, a couple of good-sized
Dolly Vardens being- in the collection.
The Dollies were captured with spin
ners. The catch was the result of two
The trio fished between Carey
Thompson's Inn, near Veda, and Krn
erick Ferry. Their casting time was
abbreviated Monday shortly after noon
when a severe storm arose, it rained
fearfully and all of the anglers who
came home yesterday fear that the
rainfall and the water caused by the
melting snow will handicap the fish
ing for four or five days. The McKen
zie raised 18 inches Monday afternoon.
Melvcnzle Han 1'tw Dangers.
"Many persons in Portland have the
idea," said Mr. Frank yesterday, "that
only expert- fishermen can go to the
McKenzie a.nd make catches, owing to
the hazards to be encountered. This
is the greatest, mistake in the world.
It was my first experience on the Mc
Kenzie, and I am not much of an
.angler when it comes to capturing
trout. My fishing has been confined
larg-ely to casting for salmon at and
near Oregon City."
Dr. and Mrs. I L. DuBois motored
to Kugene Friday, where they met Dr.
A. J. Brock and Dr. Frank li. Kiftner,
who went up on the train. The quar
tet motored from Kusrene to Thomp
son's place, and came home with a
fair catch of redsides as a result of
two days' fishing. They fished above
Thompson's place. Five or six other
parties returned home yesterday from
the McKenzie, and all brought favor
able reports and had nice catches. The
rain storm of Monday afternoon sent
most of them back. This handicap
which the storm will cause will last,
according' to experts, only five days
at the most and normal fishing condi
tions on the McKenzie should prevail

Percy Bronson will head parties Mc

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Miller fished
the Metolius River, which is tributary
to the Deschutes, last week-end, and
reported a few salmon flies around
Bend. They say that it will be two
weeks before good fishing will be en
Joyed. Dr. and Mrs. K. C. McFarland and
Mr. and Mrs. Deo Pearson returned late
Monday night from fishing in the Lit
tle Nestucca River near Dolph, Or.
They had a nice catch of small cut
throats. The party encountered con
siderable difficulty in getting back.
They motored and got stuck in the
mud, where they remained on Yamhill
County roads until late Monday night.
George J. Kelly and William Carey
returned yesterday with an extraor
dinarily fine catch of trout captured in
the Upper Clackamas. Georee H. Kelly
is contemplating 3. trout fishing and

in two weeks.
John Drennen caught the third
bronze button Chinook salmon at Ore
gon City last week-end. It weighed
24 pounds. James Honeyman was with
Drennen. He captured one salmon also.
R. N. Rudquist captured the first sil
ver button salmon trolling at Oregon
City. It weighed 35 pounds. Albert
Jasman and V. W. Evans were in this
party. Jasman caught one 13-pounder.

OREGON POLITICAL GOSSIP
Ralph E. Williams, Oregon National Committeeman, Home From Chicago,
Says Republican Convention Is Open to All Candidates George -T.
Willett Presented With Legislative Nominating Petition Burton Re
ception Plans Made Miss Abbie Wright Candidate for School Superintendent.
RALPH E. "WILLIAMS. Republican
National committeeman from Ore
gon, returned yesterday from Chi
cago, where he served as a member ot
the sub-committee on arrangements for
the forthcoming Republican National
Mr. Williams reports that there is a
growing sentiment throughout the
Middle West for a reunited Republican
party in the coming campaign. He pre
dicts that whoever is the choice of the
Chicago convention will be elected.
"The breach that separated the two
factions of the party four years ago
virtually has oeen healed," he said last
night. "I look for the action of the
convention to heal it permanently.
There is a disposition on the part of
both elements to make some conces
sions and I believe that the convention
will name a candidate and adopt a
platform ' that can be consistently sup
ported by all who supported President
Talt or Colonel Roosevelt four years
Mr. Williams says that the selection
of Senator Harding, of Ohio, as the
temporary presiding officer of the con
vention seems to meet with almost uni
versal Republican approval.
"Senator Harding was the unanimous
choice of our committee, he explained.
"While I personally favored Senator
Borah, of Idaho, and some of the in
dividual members of the committee had
other personal preferences, when it be
came apparent that Senator Harding
was the choice of a majority of our
number, he was elected without op
position." What Mr. Williams regards as the
most significant action of the sub
committee was the decision to eliminate
all possibility of contests among dele
gates in states having direct primaries.
In all such states the certified list of
kdelegates provided by the respective
Secretaries of State will be accepted as
the official delegates and will be placed
on the temporary roll of the conven
tion. If contests develop subsequently
they will be handled by the credentials
"While the temporary chairman will
formally name the credentials commit
tee. Mr. Williams explains that his
action in this particular will be purely
perfunctory, as the committeemen sug
gested by the respective state delega
tions will be named.
"The demand for seats is breaking
all precedents." said Mr. Williams. "The
people seem to realize that this con
vention will be an historic gathering.
The Coliseum will accommodate 16.0U0
persons, and we already have more than
twice that number of applications.
"I hope to provide seats for all Ore
gon persons who propose to attend, and
invite all such to get into communica
tion with me right away.
"Even the press accommodations
must be restricted this year. We ex
pect to keep out of the press section
all who are not legitimately entitled to
sit there. Only accredited representa
tives of newspapers and periodicals
actually receiving the reports of the
convention will get seats in the press
section. We expect to take care of
about 600 newspaper men."
So far as presidential possibilities are
concerned, Air. Williams declares that
the people of Oregon know quite as
much as those of the Middle West. He
did not go east of Chicago.
"There is strong talk all over the
East for both Hughes and Roosevelt.
The favorite-son candidates have not
developed a great deal of strength out
side their respective states.
"The National committee will see that
the convention itself names the candi
date and will heartily support the
choice of the convention, be it Hughes,
Roosevelt or any other."
George T. Willett, who, for many
years, up to last June, was city ticket
agent for the Northern Pacific yester
day, without any previous knowledge
on his part became a candidate for the
Republican nomination for the lower
house of the Legislature.
Late yesterday evening Mr. Willett

While Sheriff Hurlburt was in Gre
sham on business yesterday citizens
there pointed out the necessity of a
larger registration in the Gresham pre
cints. Less than 50 per cent of the elec
tors in that vicinity have been regis
tered thus far and only a few more
days remain for it. Sheriff Hurlburt
took the matter up with County Clerk
John B. Coffee during the day, and the
latter will likely arrange for one of
his deputy registrars to sit at Gresham
and register voters further. This con
venience will stimulate more interest
in the forthcoming primary election.

David E. Lofgren, an attorney In the
Pittock block, yesterday announced his
candidacy as a delegate to the National
Republican Convention. Mr. Lofgren
has resided in Portland since 1909 and
always has been a strong supporter of
the Republican party. He served in the
1913 session of the Legislature as Rep
resentative from Clackamas and Mult
nomah counties. His platform is as
"I hereby announce myself as can
didate for the office of delegate for
the Third Congressional District to the
National Republican Convention to be
held in Chicago next June, on the fol
" 'If elected a delegate to the Repub
lican National Convention I shall con
sistently and conscientiously .work to
bring about the nomination of the
Presidential candidate receiving the in
dorsement of the Republican voters of
Oregon. I consider the instructions
binding not only to vote for the can
didate on the ballot but to work for
the organization of the convention
along lines consistent with the istruc
tions. No Individual is justified in
placing his own preference or judg
ment before the vote of his party. The
only way to keep the Republican party
united and to insure Republican victory
in November, is to elect delegates who
represent the wish of the majority of
the voters.' "
SALEM. Or., April 11. (Special.)
Woodrow Wilson today telegraphed
Secretary of State Olcott. requesting
that his name be placed on the Demo
cratic promary nominating ballot at
the election May 19. as a candidate for
the Democratic nomination for Presi
dent of the United States. President
Wilson notified Secretary Olcott that
he was forwarding by mail a formal
request. He is the only candidate in
any party to have asked that his name
be placed on the ballot.
A formal request also was received
today by the Secretary of State from
William Grant Webster., of Chicago,
asking that his name be placed on the
ballot at the primaries for the Re
publican nomination for Vice-President
of the United States.
Harvey Wells, State Insurance Com
missioner, who filed his declaration
yesterday of candidacy for Republican
Presidential elector, today withdrew
from the field. Commissioner Well
said that since it appeared doubtful
that he could qualify for the office if
elected, unless he resigned as i Insur
ance Commissioner, that he preferred
not to run. The constitutional pro
vision which prevents state officers
from holding two lucrative positions,
was held to act as a bar to Mr. Wells'
acting as elector.
Declaring that he favors Justice
Hughes for President, Francis S. Ivan
hoe, of La Grande, today filed declara
tion of candidacy for Republican
elector. "I believe Justice Hughes to
be at present the strongest prospective
candidate with all elements of the
party," writes Mr. Ivanhoe in his state
ment to voters. "I believe it a party duty
to give active and united support to
ths regular nominee of the Republican
National convention, during the cam
paign and at the polls.
"The present low estimate of the
value of American citizenship is due to
'watchful waiting,' grape juice and
vacillating policies of the present Ad
ministration, and a return to the sane,
conservative and firm policies of the
Republican party is both a public de
mand and a National necessity."
Ed S. Kiddle, of Island City, a mem
ber of the upper house in the last two
Legislatures, has filed the declaration
of his candidacy for renomination on
the Republican ticket for State Senator
from Union and Wallowa counties. In
his statement he says:
"I will give the office the same at
tention and careful work that I have
given during the past term. I am op
posed to bonding the state for any
purpose whatsoever and will oppose
with all my might any bonding scheme
offered to the Legislature. I am like
wise opposed to the proposition to
bond Union or Wallowa county."

HEAVIEST IN YEARS
Higher Water Than Usual Predicted
in the Oilumbia River This Year..
In connection with the issuance of a
bulletin yesterday, covering the sea
son's snowfall in the Columbia River
watershed. District Forecaster Reals
makes known that it will be the last
Issue of the 1910-16 season. That large
amounts of snow remain in the moun
tains is indicated by the reports, some
of which are as follows:
Last Winter was unusually cold, and the
snowfall not only began earlier in the Fall
and ended later in tho Spring tha usual,
but the amounts that fell were tho heaviest
in years. The snow now in the mountains
Is well packed and has a high water con
tent. Much of that which has so far melted
soaked into the ground and the soil is well
moistened to a good depth. Under normal
temperature conditions during April and
May higher water than usual will occur
during tho annual rise in the Columbia
River and those cultivating bottom lands
should govern themselves accordingly.
During every month from November to
March, inclusive, the snowfall in tho ele
vated regions of Oregon was much above
the average. At the close of March, whils
the snow had largely disappeared from
the lower level anil on the south slopes, in
sheltered spots, on the ntirth slopes and in
deep gulches greater depths wero report
than had been recorded at this time for a
number of years. The snow remaining is
packed solid and of great density, insuring
an abundance of water for irrigation and
placer mining during the coming season.
LAW CHANGE IS INDORSED
Direct Passage of Sea Vessels Up
Columbia Is Advocated.
Senator Lane's and Representative
McArtnur's bill, introduced in Congress
to revise the maritime laws to permit
vessels bound to Portland to proceed up
the Columbia direct, without stopping
at Astoria, has been indorsed by the
navigation committee of the Chamber
The stop at Astoria was in vogue
long before Oregon was made one cus
toms district, but it is pointed out that
the present conditions make it a source
of unnecessary delay and expense, and
militate against the growth of com
merce in the Port of Portland.
