TTIE MOItNIXG OREGOXIAN, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, .1922 12 LAWYERS QUESTION . HALL'S STATUS Right to Run After Defeat in Primary Issue. QUICK DECISION LIKELY Killing by Attorney-General in Salem Is Expected Today , or Tomorrow. SALEM. Or, Sept. 12. (Special.) Whether the name of Charles Hall of Marshfeld. defeated candidate for the republican nomination for gov - ernor at the primary contest last mav will be allowed to go before the voters of .the etate as independ rf fanHMatA fin th& November bal ls probably will not be determined definitely by the secretary of state hpfnr late tomorrow or Thursday. Following receipt of Mr. Hall's certificate of nomination late last nlsrht. there arrived at the state de partment this morning his formal acceDtance of the nomination. The certificate of nomination, together with Mr. Hall's declaration of can didacy at the primary election and all other papers bearing on me issue, wore referred to the attorney-gen eral for a legal opinion. The attorney-general reported that it will not be possible tor mm to prepare the opinion before lata tomorrow. Legal Bars Cited. Attorneys about the capitol, who r close in touch with the proD l.m confronting the secretary - of st. said tonierht that there ar not less than three sections -of tffe Oregon statutes which apparently bar Mr. Hall from entering the race for governor at the November elec tion as an independent candidate. One of these sections reads thato cadidate for a nomination who faita to receive the highest number- of votes for the nomination of the po litical party with which he was af filiated at the time of filing his petition for nomination shall be en titled to be a candidate of any other political party or to become an independent candidate at the en suing election, and in either case the county clerk shall not certify the name of such candidate. Lin Is Specific. The law then continues: "No can didate for a nomination who fails to receive the highest number of votes for the nomination of the political party with which he was affiliated at the time of filing his petition for nomination shall be en titled to be the candidate of any other political party, or to become an independent candidate at the en suing election, and In either case the governor shall not include in . his proclamation any suclj candidate." , xne law lurtner proviues xiiaL 1110 county clerk, after making the ab stract of votes in his county, shall send a copy of this abstract to" the 't'secretary of state and that the seci 'retary of state, in' the presence of the governor and state treasurer, shall canvass the votes and declare the results. Local attorneys, In Interpreting these sections of the statute, jointly held that Mr. Hall is prohibited from because of having been defeated at the primary election, that the county clerks are denied the right to place his name on the" ballot, and even though his name is upon the ballot, the governor may refuse to declare his election . Pledge Is Recalled. There also enters Into the. pro ceedings the pledge made by Mr. Hall at tlje time he filed his declara tion of candidacy prior to the pri mary election. This pledge reads: "If I am not nominated, I will not accept the nomination or indorse ment of any party other than the one in which I am registered." While attorneys declared that they do not regard this pledge as binding within itself, the fact that it is supported by the statutes makes its contents mandatory upon a candidate. The question of whether this pledge was binding upon a candi date was referred to George M. Brown, ex-attorney-general, for a legal opinion in the year X916. In. that year A. W. Lafferty was defeat ed for the republican nomination for representative In congress from . the third district, but received the progressive indorsement. He later accepted the progressive nomina tion. Mr. Brown held at that time that the primary law did not attempt to provide a method whereby a candi date may be forced to keep his pledge, but that this was confided entirely to the conscience of the candidate and judgment of the people. Law Is Amended. Subsequently the legislature amended the primary law by adding the sections mentioned by attorneys here today. It was the general opinion of lawyers here tonight that the attorney-general will hold in his opin ion that the secretary of state is-' an administrative and not a judicial officer, and that he Is obliged to follow the laws until they are de clared unconstitutional. In case of such an opinion Mr. Hall's name win not appear on the ballot. Telephone messages from Port land today indicated that in event the attorney-general rules adverse ly to Mr. Hall, mandamus proceed ings will be started In the supreme court to test the constitutionality of the primary election law. Oppo nents of Mr. Hall, It was said, will not offer any protest In case the attorney-general -holds that it is within the authority of the secre tary of state to place his name on the ballot.

Charming In every appearance at the recent pageant of beauty at At lantic City, Miss Portland (Virginia Edwards) was never more attrac tive, spectators declared, than when ehe rode in the rolling chair parade.

Ofncials of the beauty pageant did everything in ' their power to make the stay of the city beauties at the coast pleasure resort a suc cession of delights, and in this en deavor they seem to have succeeded completely. Not only the winner had a lovely week, but every lair contestant enjoyed herself to the ut most, although of course the winner of Miss America's title, who was Miss Columbus, was perhaps just a. trifle more pleased than the others. It was said for Miss Portland, however, that she felt the- Atlantic City fete, was well worth while as an annual event, reminding:, hen as it did very much of Portland's own rose festival. She said she had a delightful week and thoroughly en joyed every moment of her stay. TRAVEL IS AS EXPECTED BIG. FAIR OPENS TODAY Coos and Cnrrjr Events Include Harness Horse Races.

Dickin- sbn, passenger traffic manager for the Great Northern. Glacier park, he said, has been visited this summer by 40,000 per sons, a gain of 40 per cent over re cent years. This increased interest in Glacier park was, of course, very gratifying o Mr. Davidson. . arid other officials of the Great North ern, since this recreation ground is one of the big attractions the Great Northern has to offer. That it is certain to be permanently popular, said Mr. Davidson, is proved by the large number of persons who re turn to it each year rather than go to some new playground. . - AUTO DRIVER ACCUSED Indian 11110 Wrecked DuBois Car Charged With Being; Drank.

Decisive Gains Must Be Made by ' Contestant in Order to Break Down Lead, of Opponent. Unless revelations similar to those discovered in precinct No. -'201. crop out in one of 26 precincts remaining to -be counted in the canvass of votes being held before Circuit Judge Knowles of La Grande, John B. Coffey haB no chance of ousting R. J. Kirkwood from the latter's place on the republican ticket of legislative' candidates to be voted on next November. The recount probably will end today. Coffey lost six more- votes in the check yesterday, which places him 34 "votes behind Kirkwood. He gained 39 votes in a lump in pre cinct No. 201, but it is unlikely that any of the remaining precincts will be- as kind to the candidate. For the first ten days of the coun ioxxey gainea sieaauy on nis op ponent but for the. last week his losses have been as constant. His net gain to date is 56 on Kirkwood's lead of 90 votes. The contest of W. W. Banks, seeking to out W. J. H. Clark from the republican nomination as sena tor from the joint district, was as hopeless as ever yesterday. To date neither contestant had gained a single vote on the other, the net results of changes recorded being a stand-off. . - ROTARY HELPT0 TRADE -American Ideas Are Exploited ; Among Latin-Americans.

FLEET SOLD FOB $750,000 226 Are Built at Total Cost of $300,000,000. B0NEYARDS CLEANED UP Government at Last Gets Rid of White Elephant "Born and " Nourished" by War. WASHINGTON, Sept. . 12. The government today sold its fleet of war-built wooden 'ships, the ship ping board accepting a bid of $750, 000 made by George D. Perry, an at torney of the firm of Lent & Hum phrey of San Francisco, t or 226 of the vessels. The bid was accepted at a compet itive sale conducted by Chairman Lasker and members of the ship ping board and the action leaves the government with only 10 wood en ships on Its hands. The ships sold today represented a cost of $300,000,000. , The sale brings to an end contin ued efforts by the government to rid itself of the wooden ships,' which have often been described as a "white elephant, born and nourished by the war." None or the ships sold, are being operated, 211 ofthem being tied up at Claremont, Va., 13 at Orange. Texas, and two at Beaumont, Texas. The vessels range' from 8500 tons to 6000 tons and include nine of the composite type. The conditions of the sale pre clude use of the vessels in regularly established trade routes. NEW TRADE ROUTES IN VIEW Head of Syndicate Maintains Si lence as to Associates. SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12. James Tyson, head of a syndicate of San Francisco shipping men who engi neered the purchase of 226 wooden United States shipping board ves sels, declared today that no definite plans had been made for disposi tion of the ships. He refused to state the identity of his associates. The ships probably will be used upon both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, Tyson stated. The Pacific project is contingent upon the syn dicate's ability to dispose of part of its purchase. Tyson stated that some of the ves sels would be brought from eastern and gulf ports to the Pacific coast immediately, where an inspection of their condition and general utility would be made by the purchasers. It is also likely, he stated, that some of the purchasers will make an in spection trip east. The provision of sale which bars the vessels from participating in regularly established trade routes will not cause them to be disman tied, Tyson stated, because other trade avenues are open. Complete plans ' for use of the ships will be made within the near future, Tyson stated, when a meet Ing of the purchasers will be called within a wek of ten days.
