From a political standpoint, the
two best offices within the gift of
the United States senators In Oregon
are collector of Internal revenue and
United States marshal. This may be
one reason why Senators McXary and
fitanfield are in no hurry about mak
ing a selection, or rather In arriving
at an agreement
The collector of Internal revenue
lias a large staff, mostly under civil
service, and therefore not to be dis
turbed by a change in administration.
The office, however, also has a num
ber of men who roam the state in
connection with the Income tax ami
other matters. These roving men of
the collector of internal revenue, if
selected with a view to political acu
men, as well as fitness for their
sworn duties, can be organized into
a. band o,f good propagandists.
McXary Sees Value.
In like manner the marshal has a
force of deputies who are always
moving over the state, either serving
subpenas, getting witnesses or con
veying prisoners. For political pur
poses, the marshal's office is even
more Ideal than that of collector of
customs. A deputy marshal can
sound out public sentiment on trains,
boats and In hotel lobbies, particu
larly in the email-town Inns, where
most of the nights on the road are
passed when a deputy is away from

Of course. In the prohibition en
forcement department there are also
wanderers over the state, but owing
to the character of their occupation,
a federal liquor hunter is not likely
to make friends the way a deputy
marshal can. The chances are that
eny candidate advocated by a prohl
tion agent would find such support
more of a liability than an asset.
For building up a nice little polit
ical machine the office of marshal is
full of possibilities and opportunities.
This fact is not being overlooked by
the senators. It may, in a measure,
account for the senators each having
a personal choice for head of the
In political circles It Is the belief
that no matter who is successful in
winning the appointment as marshal,
he will not have a free hand In the
elections of his deputies. The new

lege of appointing his chief deputy,
but that will be about the limit. As
for the remaining deputies, the boys
who are to go out among 'em and

may be handed a list of a dozen or
