Harding Urged to Close
and Announce List.
Fear of Unfavorable Public
1 Impression Felt. ,
Opposition Xoted, but Prudent
Party Leaders Would Welcome
ex-Administrator as Asset.
(Copyright by the New York Evening Poet,
Inc.. Published by Arrangement. )
(Special.) The republican leaders
view this beginning: of the last lap of
Harding's cabinet-making with some
concern. The causes of their appre
hension are related chiefly to the
jub'.ic impression that may be made
by the names as finally selected, by
the manner of the selection, by the
telecting of some men and tSe appar
ent turning down of others.
Harding has been strongly advised
that, due to the manner in which
news of the cabinet-making reaches
the public an impression of Inde
cision may be created. He has been
advised either to close the list and an
nounce it at once or make a public
statement that the list is complete
even though he should not announce
It until March 4.
Quite apart from the public Impres
sion, what Is called "the trial balloon'
method of selecting a cabinet the
putting up of names to be shot at
has caused distaste on the part ot
tome of the targets, some of whom
have survived while others have
either fallen out of the race or taken
themselves out of it.
Thousands of Dollars of Boise Pay.
ette Lumber Company Said to
Have Been Joggled.
VALE, Or., Feb. 10. (Special.)
Alvin C. L. Chance, wanted on a
charge of embezzlement of funds of
the Ontario branch of the Boise Fay
ette Lumber company, was arrested
yesterday morning at Long Beach,
CaL, according to word received here.
Sheriff Noe of Malheur county, has
left to bring Chance back to Vale for
Chance is said to have agreed with
the California officers to waive any
extradition fight, but In order to be
prepared to bring the alleged em
bezzler back without trouble should
he change his mind. District Attorney
Lytle prepared extradition papers and
armed the sheriff with them before
he left.
On January 1 of this year Chance
is alleged to have embezzled funds
to the amount of several thousands
of dollars from the Ontario branch of
the lumber company and disappeared.
His wife and children left Ontario
the next day for Woodland. Kan. The
embezzlement was discovered .with
in a short time and search Instituted
for the missing manager. A reward
of $300 was offered "by the lumber
company for his arrest and detention.
Chance is said to be an ex-convict
of' the Kansas state prison where
he was sentenced to a term on prac
tically the same charges he will face
in Malheur county. He was paroled
before his Kansas term expired.

Hoover Would Be Asset.
Not all the leaders deplore the like
lihood that Hoover is to be omitted
from the cabinet. A few are aggres
sively opposed to him. But ibe bulk
cf the more prudent ones are eager
for the party to have the great asset
cf public favor which Hoover's pres
ence la the cabinet would be.
It is true that the omission of
Hoover superficially seems a. present
likelihood, but is by no means a cer
tainty. Harding has clung tenacious
ly to the idea of taking Hoover in.
and no suggestion of any alternative
to Hoover as secretary of commerce
tas eve emanated from Harding per
sonally. Hoover himself is understood to
lave preferred the interior depart
rt.ent, but it is apparent that Hard
ing's thought of him has been In con
nection with the commerce depart
ment. Leaders Getting tTneasr.
i The present putting forward of
John Hays Hammond for this depart
ment comes from a very small group
of eadrs close to Harding who have
all along opposed putting Hoover in
the cabinet. As the time grows short
they have become alarmed at the lack
cf any alternative name for the com
merce department in Harding's mind
Hammond's name is now put forward
on thu familiar political axiom that
you can't beat some one with no one.
. Another omission from the cabinet
riate as it now stands which trou
bles the more prudent party leaders is
that of ex-Senator Sutherland of
I-tan. In the early stages Suther
land's name' appeared frequently in
connection with both the attorney
reneral's office and the interior de
partment. Then for a time, the in
ner gossip said mat Sutherland was
to be saved for the supreme court.
There is much nonsense about this.
For months it has been said that
Harding will have four vacancies in
the supreme court to fill. Ex-President
Tilt started it in an article he
wrote during the campaign when he
asked whether the public would pre
fer that Harding should fill these
vacancies or that Cox should do it.
Cox promptly took the argument up,
reversed it and made frequent use of
il during the campaign.
Vacancies Yet I'acertaln.
There is little or nothing In it.

Storm Damage o Olympic Timber
Thought Overstated.
TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 10. (Spe
cial.) Tacoma lumbermen believe the
estimate of $100,000,000 timber loss
by storm on the Olympic penninsula
has been exaggerated greatly. While
they admit that the damage there was
heavy, they say the figure set ap
pears to be excessive.
"While 1 have no figures other than
those reported yesterday," said George
S. Long, vice-pres'dent and general
manager of tho Weyerhaeuser Timber
company, "1 believe it will be found
that the loss is not as great as esti
mated. While heavy damage was
done. It takes a vast quantity of tim
ber to show a value of $100,000,000."

What's Behind Irrigation
Bill? Asks Engineer.
Better Tend to Own Work, Is
Representative's Reply.
Press Story of Comnanv Bcinjr
Back-of Bills Assailed Show
down Is Due Today.
STATE HOUSE, Salem, Or., Feb. 10.
(Special.) The irrigation fight has
been set as a special order of business
for 3 o'clock Friday afternoon. All
day both factions have been receiv
ing telegrams of support and Messrs.
Burdlck and Sallagher, who are
backing the two house bills, have
been accumulating their ammunition.
Representative Kay is expected to
be one of tho principal opponents
with probably Mr. Sheldon and Mr.
Carsner in the reserve lines.
Mr. Burdlck and Mr. Gallagher have
explained that when they have made
their arguments for the bills, they
will abide by tire decision of the
house. Friends of Percy Cupper,
state engineer, who would be shunted
out of this position to the state land
board in one of the bills, have ex
pressed confidence that the bills will
be killed in the house, or should they
be passed! by the house, they will be
killed in the senate.
Opponents Issue Statements.
Today Mr. Cupper issued a state
ment to the press and Mr. Burdlck
answered it.
Following is Engineer Cupper's
"Representatives Gallagher and
Burdlck have been accused by the
press of representing the Warren
Construction- company in the prepa
ration of house bill No. 178, wliich
s calculated to oust the state engi
neer from office. At a meeting held
by the house irrigation committee
Tuesday night Mr. Gallagher ad
mitted, under pressure, that not a
Ingle constituent in his district was
supporting the measure, and de
clared that he did not know where
the bill came from, but that Mr. Bur-
ick had handed it to him. Under
the parlance of today, this twould
pfobably be called 'passing the buck.'
On receipt of the 'buck,' so to speak,
Mr. Burdick was forced to make
practically the same admission.
' Knowledge Is Demanded.
The people of the state of Oregon
are entitled to know who is behind
his measure. Gallagher and Burdick
are entitled to be exhonrr4ted from
the charge of misrepresenting their
constituents and to have the facts
brought to light, it would seem,
therefore, that the Gallagher resolu
tion providing for the investigation
of the state engineer's activities with
respect to irrigation districts should

Investigation to Expose Influence
That Unlocked Treasury W.hen
Gold Was Being Conserved.
After developing some high spots In
the case of Glover C. Bergdoll, the
hcuse military committee decided to
day to ask congress for authority to
find out how the rich draft dodger
escaped from a military guard and
went to Germany, the country he
had refused to, fight. ,
Chairman Kahn announced tonight
that enough evidence had been de
veloped to Indicate the necessity of
action. Recent statements cabled
from Germany by Bergdoll prompted
the committee to renewed effort. In
view of his charge that he had ob
tained from the treasury department
and concealed In the woods $105,000
in gold to be used In effecting his re
lease through bribery of government Some Victims Are Found' Strewn

The committee will seek to asctr-
tain what influence enabled Bergdoll
to obtain so much gold from the treas
ury when the supply was being con
served. The more important thread
to be followed, members said, was

McAvery testified there was no
d'.ubt that Bergdoll got the gold from
the treasury. In expressing belief
lhafno high officials of the war de
partment had been corrupted, he said
ne was equally positive that the draft
dodger had not escaped through

Describing the legal tactics of the
ex-prisoner's mother, Mr. McAvery
indicated a Philadelphia lawyer, wise

stantly traded one attorney for an
other. After Mrs. Bergdoll had paid'

Burdlck Makes Reply.
Mr. Burdick's reply said:
"My attention has been called to
the statement which the state engi
neer issued today for the press, and
I feel it my duty to make a few
short statements which in them
selves should be self-explanatory
and place the minds of the public
and the members of the house and

a condition where they may consider
the facts, which I hope to have the
privilege of presenting on the floor
of the house tomorrow in a fair and
unprejudiced manner.
Mr. Cupper. opens by Insinuating
that I am representing the Warren
Construction company in this fight,
as indicated by what he .terms 'the

"In fact, the public has been obliged
to read enough- maliciously false
statements and persecution in the
Telegram during the last few years.
I am sincere in saying that I regret
that the gentlemen in the office of

is merit in his contention and oppo
sition to the bill, to leave his offices
