Indianians Rally to Support
of Senate Aspirant.
REMOTE PARTS VISITED
Own Campaign Is Conducted and
No Appeal Is Made to National
Committee for Help.
THE OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU ,
Washington, D. C, Nov. 2. To na
tional republican leaders Indiana is
just now the brightest epot on the
political map. The reason Is Albert
Beveridge has shown a capacity
for handling his own campaign for
the senate that is nothing short of
a revelation. He has gone out into
the most remote precincts of the
state to talk to the voters and the
plain Hoosier folk are rallying to
his support with a fervor that savors
of the campmeeting. Though atop
of 60 years, his fellow Indianians
are fond still of referring to him as
"Young Beveridge," Just as they
did 30 years ago when he went out
on the platform from De Pauw uni
versity carrying all of the medals
Not a single appeal has come to
the national or senatorial commit
tee from Mr. Beveridge for help.
He is going out personally to bag a
senatorship, with Senator Jim Wat
son coming along behind "whoop-
lng her up" for Harding and telling
the people that they are doing right
by getting In line for "Bev." z as
The result is that a contest which
a few weeks ago appeared a tossup.
With the democrats making all the
claims, looks like a sure republican
victory with the size of the majority
the only question to be settled at
the polls. Some predictions say
the margin will be as high as 80,000
and that Beveridge not only" is win
ning for himself, but by his bril
liant campaign is pulling through
several republican members of" the
lower house of congress, who at the
outstart seemed doomed to certain
The big issue pressed to the fore
in New Jersey and California, suc
cinctly stated, is, "Shall a fellow be
allowed a glass of real beer with
his airdale sandwich?" The only
difference is that in New Jersey, a
great industrial state which pro
duces much beer, only beer is men
tioned to any extent, while in Cal
ifornia, which produces thousands
of tons of w ine grapes, there is a
demand for the return of wines as
well as beer.
Governor Edward I. Edwards,
democrat, has the wet end of the
New Jersey contest for United
States senator against Joseph S.
Frelinghuysen, republican. New Jer
sey democrats are engaged in try
ing to prove that Senator Freling
huysen, dry, has one of the richest
wine cellars in Washington, while
some California republicans seek to
show that W. J. Pearson, democrat
and dry, opposed to Hiram .Johnson
for the senate, possesses a stock of
liquors second to none in Los
Angeles. A memorandum on the
police blotter of Los Angeles not
long ago to the effect that burglars
had invaded Mr. Pearson's wine cel
lar Is cited as evidence that the
dry candidate keeps company at
home with beverages proscribed by
But the dry issue in California is
emphasized more noticeably in the
race for governor where the demo
crats have a much better fighting
chance than in the senatorship con
test. Thomas Lee Woolwine, dis
trict attorney of Los Angeles, is the
democratic candidate for governor
on a wet platform of his own mak
ing against Friend William Rich
ardon, present state treasurer. Mr.
Woolwine is chiefly distinguished
as the man who did not catch the
murderer of William Desmond Tay
lor, moving picture director, who
was mysteriously shot down In his
studio about a year ago.
None who had ever eeen the of
ficers of the law in Los Angeles as
they came piling over each other to
the scene of crime in a Mack Sen
nett comedy expected the Taylor
assassin to be caught, hence no one
was disappointed when the district
attorney failed to find even so much
as a clew to the identity of the
But all memory of the celebrated
mystery has been lost in the hurry
and bustle of Mr. Woolwine's cam
paign to quench countless thirsts.
California's wet and dry campaign
appears to have reached its greatest
inteusity in Sacramento county,
where health officials recently be
gan to show resistance by an order
compelling the vaccination of all
dogs on account of an epidemic of
Nobody seems to know' what sort
of a star was playing around over
the house where Henry Cabot Lodge
wag born, but everybody who has
followed the course of the Massa
chusetts statesman is ready to grant
that It was a lucky one.
Senator Lodge left Washington
some weeks ago for home, think
ing he had the most difficult test
of his career ahead of him, but as
the election draws nearer it is con
ceded that his re-election is onlv a
' matter of counting the votes. His
democratic opponent. Colonel Gas
ton, a fine old aristocrat, to begin
with encountered many obstacles in
ascertaining what sort of a plat
form he was standing on. His pre
dicament may be appreciated whan
one recalls that the democrats of
Massachusetts have openly declared
themselves againitf practically all
of the democratic policies enun
ciated by Woodrow Wilson, includ
ing the latter's league of nations.
The cap sheaf was finally added
hist Sunday, when the Boston Post,
leading democratic newspaper of
New England, came out in an edito
rial appeal to democrats to help
return Mr. Lodge to the senate for
his sixth term. The Post position Is
that Massachusetts cannot afford to
throw away the Lodge influence

Equitable Distribution of Availa

Supply Is Requested.
OLTMPIA, Wash., Nov. 2. (Spe

works will co-ODerate to the fullest
extent with the four northwestern
railroads and the public service
commissions of Oregon and Idaho
in obtaining an equitable distribu
tion of the available refrigerator
car supply. Director E. V. Kuyken

a copy of the telegram which the
interstate commerce commission
sent yesterday to the presidents of
the four carriers, directing them to
follow the advice of the state com
missions in allocating the ear sup
ply. H. O. Berger, assistant traffic ex

SPOKANE, Wash., Nov. 2. Im
provement of operating conditions
on railways through grouping of
roads and through the devising of
systems to get cars back to their
railroad owners more quickly will
be a big factor in preventing a re
currence of the present freight-car
shortage, Charles Donnelly, presi
dent of the Northern Pacific rail
road, said here today. Mr. Donnelly,
with other Northern Pacifio offi
cials, is on a tour of inspection of
the company's lines in the west.
"I confess I can see no full solu
tion of the, problem," said Mr. Don
nelly. "Pacific coast rates to meet
water competition would also be a
factor in overcoming conditions
bringing about car shortages."
Lumber m'lls and allied industries
of the Inland Empire are facing
tihutdowns because of the rail car
shortage, according to reports of
plant managers here.
Lumber mills are filling all avail
able storage space with lumber, and
even those which ordinarily operate
all winter will soon be forced to
shut down, I. N. Tate, assistant gen
eral manager of the Weyerhaeuser
Sales company, stated today. Plan

Dissension over tickets issued for

retary of tne Federation of Patriotic
Secretary Elford issued a state
ment yesterday in which he declared
the grand dragon was putting out
a fake ticket. He said Gifford has
circulated a yellow ticket that is
a counterfeit of the usual federated
societies ticket. Elford satd it is
a plain "fake." The statement was
"Our attention has been called to
an alleged 'yellow ticket" issued by
one Fred L. Gifford, which bears
evidence on its face of its 'fake'
character. It purports to be issued
in behalf of a 'Good Government

1922, and warns against duplicity,

"We are informed that Mr. Gif
ford is the dragon or some other
title, of mass meetings known as the
Ku Klux Klan, and that the 'Good

doesn't Grand Dragon Gifford sign
indorsements in the- name of the

titles? Is it to deceive the people?
The fate of the dragon is forecast
in Revelations xii:9.
"Gifford's fake ticket announces

RECALL IS THREATENED
NEWTON McCOY MENACED BY
Oregon's "Warwick" Offended by
Recent Action Regarding
Telephone Rate Cut.
Newton McCoy, chairman of the
public service commission, elected
on a recall ticket last May, is to
feel the recall ax himself, accord
ing to Robert G. Duncan, nemesis
of the telephone company, who
yesterday made public his intention
of starting a recall campaign
against McCoy on December 16.
The recent telephone rate reduction,
which Duncan . characterizes as . a
"fake," is the cause.
Duncan's letter to McCoy is Dun
canesque in its vituperative quali
ties. The public service commis
sioner is called a little of every
thing unpleasant by his ex-friend.
Duncan declared that he "dragged
McCoy from political obscurity" and
that he intends "to shove hifh back
in that same obscurity" as soon as
he gets his recall petitions working.
The fact that Duncan, the friend
of the people, wears $125 garments
was also made public in the letter.
Duncan, in accusing McCoy of in
gratitude, calls the commissioner's
attention that Duncan distributed
$103 . worth of election cards for
McCoy during the recall campaign
and in so doing ruined a $125 suit.

SEA MONSTER CAUGHT
Fish With Cavernous Mouth and
Three Rows of Teeth Landed.
CBy Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Nov. 2. While fish
ing off Coney Island today Anthony
Rudolph pulled a thing out of the
sea that puts all the freaks and
foibles of that meeting place for
strange grotesqueries in the shade.
And he called it a "What's It."
Rudolph felt an enormous yank
at his line and began to haul in.
The thing he caught lashed the
water into a white foam and fought
desperately for freedom. Rudolph
gave a great heave and landed it.
Then it attacked him. He killed
the monster with a pocket knife.
Examination showed it to weigh
30 pounds, mostly bead. It measures
30 inches long and 18 wide. Its
mouth is cavernous, equipped with
three rows of teeth. Under the body
are two little protuberances that
look like baby hands, with four
fingers each. The skin is leathery
and adorned with hairy tufts.
The old salts of Coney speculated
much without getting closer to a
name for the fish than "What's It,"
and so it will be called until scien

WHITE PLAINS, N. Y., Nov. 2.
Something brand new In the private
life of husband and wife "was intro
duced today to Justice Morschauser
by Mrs. Helen M. Fitzgerald of Yon

desire to wander, she would issue
him a "pass" which would liberate
him for the period of absence.
She testified that she had given
him 200 of these "passes."
Mrs. Fitzgerald's complaint would
indicate that Fitzgerald took advan

has been A. W. O. L. since last Feb

for the last time.
He faced her in court today and
