teath of George Baldwin, delegate-at-Jarge
to the democratic national
convention, has caused a. vacancy In
the Oregon delegation -which Is caus
ing some concern. under the law,
there are no alternates elected for
delegates. The republicans have cir
cumvented this by offering to seat as
alternates the candidates for delegate
who ran next to the winners. Noth
ing1 like that is to be done by the
The democratic state central committee-
will hold a meeting in Portland
about a week before the national con
vention and the committee will elect
alternates for the delegates. Also the
committee will make a selection to
fill .the vacancy caused by the death
of Mr. Baldwin.
In the democratic primaries the four
delegates-at-large elected were Craw
lord, Hidden, Purdy and Baldwin. The
runners-up were Frederick V. Holman
and John Schuyleman. Mr. Holman
lias been a regular attendant at dem
ocratic conventions for years and
years, and this is about the only rec
ognition he has ever been willing to
accept at the hands of the party.
Schuyleman Is 'Wilson Manager.
Mr. Schuyleman suddenly developed
a few weeks ago as the manager of
the Wilson league other .members
not known and spread broadcast
thousands of leaflets arguing that the
way to save the country from all ills
and ailments is to elect Mr. Wilson
lor a third terms. Mr. Schuyleman
made his campaign as an advocate for
the third! term, and one. of the sur
prises of the primary election was the
aize of the vote he received. '
When .Mr. Baldwin died, leaving a
vacancy, it was supposed that Mr.
Holman was the runner-up and log
ical successor to the vacancy. Mr.
Schuyleman, however, hadn't been
asleep at the switch, and he was tak
ing Just as keen an interest in that
vacancy as anyone. Yesterday Mr.
Schuyleman was of the opinion that
as the vote now stands he is about 40
votes ahead of Mr. Holman and, as
he views' it, he is the successor to Mr.
Dr. J. W. Morrow Passes Buck.
Someone suggested that Dr. J. W.
Morrow, as national committeeman,
fill the vacancy by appointment, but
the doctor passed the buck to the
stale committee. It is almost a fore
gone conclusion that if the state com
mittee has to make a choice between
Mr. Holman and Mr. Schuyleman, the
former will be elected and the latter
will receive the cold shoulder. If the
committee disregards the v defeated
candidates of the primaries who as
pired to be delegates, and there were
many such, there is no telling who
the alternates may be.
Xational Committeeman Elder of
Idaho passed through Portland on his
way to San Francisco, where he is on
the committee of arrangements. He
says that Idaho will send a delegation
of 16 Instead of eight and will give
each delegate a one-half vote. The
idea is to spread the interest among
the party people and enable a. larger
number to participate' in the work of
the convention. The Idaho contingent
is uninstructed. but favors Governor
Cos, on the theory that he can carry
Ohio and New York and Is therefore
a very promising candidate.

of more stars than probably any
other motion picture cast since "The
Birth of a Nation," and a reckless j

Allegories wouldn't do for a steady
motion picture diet. Producers and
managers know that and the result
is that a picture in purely allegorical
vein is a rarity on the screen. There
fore when a gorgeous production such
as "Everywoman" comes along it
makes a profound impression. It Is
an allegory. It 13 different. It makes
people think, particularly women, at
the same time it amuses them, as in
this instance. So "Everywoman" Is
an elaborately-worked-out allegory
with something of the same appeal
that a total eclipse of the sun causes
total eclipses of the sun having
been occuring since the world began,
but happening so seldom.
Violet Heming is the star of
"Everywoman." She is new to motion
pictures, but her ame on the legiti

her most recent successes is "Three
Faces "East," which proved so suc
cessful that although war plays are
strictly tabooed, she was sent on tour

WHENEVER an intelligent

We all want fine furniture in
our homes; fine china, silverware,

whatever we have set our hearts
- We are never really satisfied
with a lower standard than we

and a watch that is faithful in

So, when we buy a watch,
let us remember that it is not al
ways what we see on the outside
but the unseen things in the
"works" that really count. And
common sense tells us that if a
watch good enough to challenge
the world in the quality of its
mechanism and the hidden super
iorities of its exclusive inven
tions, costs more than a watch of
so-called similar grade, we should
not hesitate which watch is the
one for us to own.
'THE Waltham Watch is the
only watch in the world that
has taken the mystery out of the
"works" of a watch. But the
