LEADERS ARE GONE
Old-Time System in Congress
Has Vanished.
FORMER POWER CURTAILED
So-Called Leaders Now, in Botb
Senate and Honse, Cannot
Count on Followers as
In Other Years.
OREGONXA.X NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Sept. 23. Although Senator
Henry Ca,bot Lodge, of Massachusetts,
has been elected formally as Repub
lican "leader" in the upper house of
Congress, he Is by no means the leader
in the sense that the term was used a
decade agro. He will be chairman of
the Republican caucus, or conference.
He will speak for the Republican Bide
of the Senate on minor matters; he will
be the man to whom all Republican
Senators will look to keep them out
of parliamentary trouble; but he will
be a leader with few if any dependable
followers, in the sense that other lead
ers have had followers. He will have
no forces upon which to rely abso
lutely in any encounter with the Demo
cratic side. He will be a leader just to
the extent that he can indicate the
wisest course and convince his asso
ciates that he is right.
And this situation is not peouiiar to
the Senate. It has its counterpart in
the House. There has been none of the
old-time leadership in the House since
that memorable day when Cannonism
was dethroned. There has been none
of the old-time leadership In the Sen
ate since the passing of Eugene Hale
and Nelson w. Aldrlch.
Cannon was a leader partly because
of his rare ability as a manager of
men and partly because of the enor
mous power vested in him in making
committee assignments. Hale and
Aldrich were leaders chiefly because
the former was chairman of the com
mittee on appropriations and the latter
chairman of the committee on finance,
and the two combined their power.
And what is true ofhe Republican
ide is true among the liemocrats, in
both houses. Speaker Clark cannot di
rect the policies of the House on any
subject at any time. Senator Martin,
f Virginia, the titular leader of the
Democrats in the Senate, never -even
attempts to direct his own party ex
cept on inconsequential matters.
Leadership In either the House or
the Senate today depends entirely upon
the ability of the man his personal
qualities, hi3 knowledge, his willing
ness to work.
It seems doubtful that the Senate,
as now constituted, will develop a
leader in either party who will be
recognized as such either by the Sen
ate itself or by the country.

RAIL MEN ARE AIDED TO BUY
t
MoAdoo Authorizes Companies to
Finance liberty Bonds.
Every facility is afforded employes
of the railroads to buy liberty loan
bonds. Under instructions from Direc
tor-General McAdoo the Federal troas-
rers of railroads are authorized to
make the necessary provision for oar
rying- bonds for railroad employes who
want to buy and have payments deduct
ed from their monthly pay. Those who
are still paying- on bonds of the third
loan may subscribe and deductions for
the fourth loan will not be made until
January.
Organization of the different depart
ments of the roads is under the direc
tion of the Federal managers and each
road has its own working organization
with branches for each department.
There is lively rivalry between differ
ent departments to be first to post no
tices of 100 per cent subscriptions,
which means that each employe has
subscribed for one or more bonds.
