35,000 PLURALITY EXPECTED
Poindexter's Strength Increased
by Division of Foes.
PUGET SOUND BUREAU, Seattle,
' Wash., Sept. 13. This is the day for
recriminations and "I told you so s
with the forces lately and variously
engaged in the effort to defeat Miles
Poindexter for the republican nomi
nation to the United States senate,
and they are all going strong.
Senator Poindexter's plurality
when the returns are all in should
reach, if it does not exceed 35,000,
The surface showing of the returns
will make him. a minority candidate.
It will be the simplest sort of arith
metic to add up the yotes cast for
Colonel George B. Lamping, Judge
Austin E. Griffiths and Mrs. Frances
C. Axtell and strike a total in ex
cess of the total vote for Poindexter.
The margin will not be very heavy,
but it probably will be enough to
convince many that had the anti
Poindexter vote been centered on
une candidate Poindexter would
have been defeated. That is what
the opposition forces have been
saying right along, yet nothing
eould be done to bring about the
desired limitation and concentration.
The conclusion that Poindexter is
honestly a minority republican can
didate is not entirely justified by
disinterested analysis of the vote.
It is not safe to assume that the
votes cast for Lamping, Griffiths and
Axtell could have bten controlled for
either of the three. Judge Griffiths
for example, has always been hostile
to the Hearst programme and the
Post-lntelligencer s plan of cam
paign. He couid scarcely have had
that support. The women asso
ciated in Mrs. Axtellts campaign
would not have supported Lamping
under any circumstances.
Had it been possible to eliminate
two of the three candidates there
would have been a marked slump in
the anti-Poindexter vote. More im
portant, however, is the fact that
the anti-Poindexter vote as cast
in the republican primaries is not
wholly a republican vote, far from
it. There has probably never been
an election in the history of the
direct primary, when invasion by
outsiders was more general, open
and notorious-. The vote in the
democratic and farmer-labor pri
maries in all parts of the state is
so small as to be negligible.
Most of the Lamping vote and
much also of the Axtell vote came
from outside the republican party.
It was promised in advance, strong
ly encouraged by the Post-Int'elll-
gencer and the Seattle union Rec
ord and it was delivered. Had none
but republicans voted in the re
publican primary Senator Poindex
ter would have won his nomination
by a very substantial majority over
all his competitors, but expectation
of the vote on supreme court jus
tices may throw some light on the
The judiciary elections are non
partisan, but at least two of the
candidates opposed to the present
justices have been so long' and so
fully identified with the anti-republican
forces of the state that it
is inconceivable that they received
any republican support. Yet the
vote cast for them is far in excess
of the totals cast In the democratic
and farmer-labor primaries, prov
ing that; thousands of their sup
porters participated in the republi
The apparent defeat of two of
the present supreme court justices
will doubtless be acclaimed as a
v'ctory for the so-called progres
sive elements. It is more properly
attributable to the fact that the
outside candidates had every oppor
tunity to play politics while some of
the incumbent justices were handi
capped by considerations of pro
priety. W. H. Pemberton of Belling
ham has defeated Justice Ho
vey, and Judge Bruce Blake of Spo
kane seems to have pushed
ahead of Justice Parker and made
vigorous campaigns throughout the
state. Both are well known and pop
ular. They won by virtue of per
sistent effort to which the incum
bent justices offered practically no
resistance. Justice Fullerton ia the
oldest member of the bench in point
of service and has a larger person
al acquaintance than any other jus
tice. Justice Mackintosh, also well
known, found time to visit every
county and city in the state within
the last 60 days. Macintosh re
ceived the highest vote of all the
judiciary candidates and tlTe indi
cations are that Fullerton will hold
The renomination of the five pres
ent members of the house of repre
sentatives was easily forecast and
the prediction has been verified by
the vote but the contest in the first
district, consisting of Seattle and
Kitsap county, was much closer than
expected. Representative John F.
Miller was so confident of renomi
nation that he made nothing of a
campaign. The returns show that a
little more pressure behind the can
didacy of Phillip Tindall, Seattle
city councilman, would have resulted
in 'Miller's defeat. Representative
Lin H. Hadley. of Bellingham car
ried the second district over a di
vided opposition. Representative
Albert Johnson won without effort
asrainst the slight opposition of a
light wine and beer candidate in
the third district. Representative
John W. Summers of the fourth dis-'
trict and Representative J. Stanley
Webster of the fifth were unop
posed. The fight on Senator Poindexter
will be Immediately resumed this
time on party lines. Much of the
anti-Poindexter vote of the primary
election will sort itself out in sup
port either of C. C. Dill, the demo
cratic senatorial nominee or of
James A. Duncan, the farmer-labor
candidate. Effort has been made
already to bring two together for a
conference on the possibility of one
or the other getting out of the way.
Neither Dill nor Duncan will be

The letter to Warden Lewis reads:

The crime for which Dr. Brum
field was convicted and sentenced to
hang probably was the most sensa
tional homicide ever recorded in the
annals of Oregon's criminal history.
Peculiarly, the crime was committed
on the 13th of tjie montn, and most
of the important subsequent de
velopments in the case fell on that
date. The closing- chapter in the

Dr. Brumfield. well-known dentist
and social leader of Roseburg, went
to the home of Dennis Russell on
the night of July 13, 1921, possibly
under the pretense of offering Rus

prosecution contended that Russell

The burning car was first dis
covered by some Roseburg young
men and the incident was reported
to the officers. An investigation
followed, and at first it was pre

With this damaging evidence at

Brumfield later appealed his case
to the supreme court, which in a
decision handed down here a few

the lower court. Motion for rehear

this was still pending in the su

Dr. W. Carlton Smith, prison nhvsi-

that he was called to attend Dr.

he was suffering from a. severe at-

"Dr. Brumfield was far from well

BRUJfFIEIiD CULTURED MAN
Prosecutor Says Suicide Was Super-Criminal
"Brumfield . was the super-criminal
of the century, a man of mag
nificent education and admirable
culture, a mentil aristocrat who
held himself aloof from the general
public, a man with wonderful nerve
and keen intelligence, and without
doubt, a man perfectly sane at all
times during the planning and com
mission of his crime," said Deputy
District Attorney Hammersly, who
assisted at the prosecution of the
dentist in Roseburg.
"If there was ever a case for
which the capital punishment law
was especially fitted, this was the
case," said Hammersly.
Hammersly said the crime was
planned and executed solely for the
purpose of securing the $20,000 in
surance. Widow Here, Says Report.

Shoes that Add to
Shoes that bind and distort the
feet are a source of constant irri
tation. They drain your nervous
energy, distract your attention and
lessen your ability to concentrate
and to work. Such shoes are a
drawback to health and success. If
you would enjoy the best that life
has to offer of buoyant strength
and achievement, change to the
comfortable, helpful Cantilever
It is well built on a last that
conforms to the contours of the
foot. With the natural inner sole
line, the toes point 6traight ahead
and are comfortable; a share of
the weight of the body falls easily
on the ball of the foot.
The well - set heel encourages
good posture, which, in turn, en
courages good health.
The shank of a Cantilever Shoe
is drawn up, by lacing the 6hoe, to
fit the instep and provide restful
support. And it FLEXES WITH
THE FOOT. It does not bind the
muscles and impede circulation as
a rigid sole does. It strengthens
the muscles by allowing them
freedom to exercise, thus pre
venting or correcting weak arches.

Cantilever Shoe Store
