May Cost Him Chairmanship

Republican Looking: About for An
other Man for the PlaceSeveral
Under Consideration.
WASHINGTON. May 19. Senator Lodga
Is slated for permanent chairman of th
Republican convention, but It Is said that
since tho severe criticism that has fol
lowed his speech en the Monroe doctrlna
and assault. on the Germans, the Republi
can managers are looking about for an
other man. Many German Republicans ara'
protesting against Lodge, and couple tho
protest with the assertion that Lodge's
selection will lose the Republicans many
votes. Several other names are now said
to be under consideration for this im
portant place In the convention.
The outlook for fusion is not regarded
as very good. It was compiete in 1S96,
even with the Watson foolishness, as tho
Populls.s now term the celebrated double
tall to the Br an ticket of four years
ago. Fusion worked all right and the
success In getting all the votes opposed
to the Republicans centered on one candi
date snowed very good generalship on tho
part of those manipulating It, for It waa
accomplished in a manner that Is not like
ly to occur again. This year It has al
ready otf:i demonstrated that fusion is
lmpcfis'ble, and all of the antl elements'
of the ccuntry, all of that discontented and
distracted voting population, which will
not 6te for the Republicans cannot now
"be centered In any one candidate. Bryaa
offers them now as much as he offered In
1S96. but these elements cannot and have?
not been held together four years con
tinuously. In the first place, the Mlddle-of-the-Road
Populists did not particularly
want Eryan nominated at their St Louis
convention four years ago. This element
however, cam; from the Southern states.
Their object In maintaining a middle-of-the-road
and separate organization was
to secure the fusion in tho Southern states
for themselcves and to defeat the Democ
racy. Their fight was not against the Re
publicans, but against the Democracy. It
Is a fact that the largest sectton of tha
mlddle-of-tr e-road element repiesenttd at
the Cincinnati convention came from th
South, and most of the votes that Barker
and Donnelly will get are likely to coma
from the Southern states.
The Populist vote in the Northern, stales
will to a large extent go to Bryan. How
ever, the fact that there is a split in
the Populist party, and one element la by Itself, means that quite a
large vote, even In states where the Pop
ulist votes arc wanted by the Democrats
the worst, will go to the Mlddle-of-the-Road
ticket But there Is another element
that stood by Bryan In 1896 which 13 not
for him now, and is represented by the
Debs nomination for the Presidency. Debs
himself claims that he will get 1,000,000
votes that wtre cast for Brjan In 1S23
Whlle this Is proba"b"y an exaggerated
number. It Is absolutely certain that what
ever votes Debs gets w.ll come from
Northern states that are absolutely essen
tial for Brian's success. They will not
come from states that are sure to go for
Bryan In any event the states of the
eolld South, and those of the silver West,
but they will be found In New Tork,
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, states which
the Bryanltes are casting longing glances
at for some s gn which will give them
encouragement The fusion outlook with
the Mlddle-of-the-Road Populist ticket,
and with the Debs Socialistic ticket is not
good, and shows conclusively that all of
the Incongruous elements which were
gathered in 1S96 cannot be held together
for four years.
The Philippine Tariff.
Representative Tongue has addressed the
following letter to the Secretary of War,
which Is self-explanatory:
"I inclose correspondence from Manila
published in The Portland Oregonian of
May 9, a statement of the tariff Imposed
upon goods shipped from, the United States
to Manila, and also an editorial comment
on behalf of The Oregonian. I desire par
ticularly to call your attention to this
tariff, especially with reference to flour
and food products. I should be pleased to
know whether this Is a correct list, and If
so, whether It would not be possible to
very materially modify the order under
which this tariff has been levied.
"The Pacific Coast Is especially Inter
ested in establishing a market for flour
in Eastern Asia. Great advancement has
been made in that direction; It controls,
a' large portion of that trade. One of
the necessary steps to take Is to teach
people there to use flour, make and eat
bread. It seems to me that the Govern
mnt as much as possible should lend en
couragement to this enterprise. To a great
many people the large tariff Imposed upon
flour, cheese, butter and other food prod
ucts will appear to be unjustifiable, and
will probably produce little revenue.
"I earnestly call your attention to this
subject, and I think voice practically the
unanimous sentiment of the people of the
Pacific Coast when I ask for a very ma
terial modification of this tariff upon such
food products."
Submitted by the
CHICAGO. May 19. The Record says:
"There Is before the State Department
at Washington a plan submitted by tha
Russian Government whereby Russia and'
the United States could dictate wheat
prices for the world," said J. M. Flynn, of
San Francisco, at the Auditorium Hotel.
M. Flynn I3 an agent of the Russian
American Company, recently formed with
a capital of $5,000,000, and has been In con
sultation with the Russian Embassy In
Washington for several weeks on matters
pertaining to the company he represents.
Continuing, Mr. Flynn said;
"This plan was submitted during Cleve
land's second term, but It has rested with
out action till the present time. I know"
that the Russian Government Is anxious
that Its overtures be met by this coun
try. The trans-Siberian Railroad devel
ops a territory, the principal products
of which are wheat and cotton. Russia
believed that with the co-operation of this
country, her wheat and cotton, the prin
cipal Items of exports also of the United
States, could bring much better prices.
"Russia's proposition was the result of
the Investigations made some time ago by
M. De WItte, Minister of Finance, to dis
cover the cause of the low price of wheat
and cotton. They showed to the satis
faction of the Government that this low
