STRONG FIGHT AGAINST ROGERS

SEA.TT.Lu3, "Wash.. Aug. 25. The opposi
tion to Governor Rogers gives some signs
of arriving at an understanding as to Its
candidate. The movement In the direction
of Voorhees today -teas unmistakable, but
St is much embarrassed by the fact that I
ie is opxosed by Senator Turner and a I
majority of the Spokane delegation. Faw
cett is practically out of the fight, and he
Trill no doubt be -willing to retlro form
ally -whenever It is apparent that the
fortunes of tho Rogers opposition Tvill bo
thereby improved. His followers continue
to keep up a noisy demand for Faw
oett's nomination, but thy are slmpfy do
ing it to hold their forces together and
to sustain their courage.
The spirit of the opposition and tho
trend of events -were plainly shown today
when many delegates appeared about the
hotel lobbies with "anti-Rogers" badges.
These represent entirely the sentiments
and purposes of the opposition. It is not
specially for anybody, but it is against
Tonight anti-Rogers Populist delegates
to the number of about 1000 held an open
caucus at Masonic Hall. Many speeches
were made, all of them bitterly denun
ciatory of the Governor. He was referred
to by one orator as a "scoundrel," by
another as a "rascal," and by about all
of them as "an ingrate and traitor.
Among the participants was Robert
Bridges, State Land Commissioner, and
Chairman Mclaughlln. of the People's
Party committee. Tho sentiment of the
meeting crystallized Into a resolution de
claring the purpose of tho anti-Rogers
taction to bolt and to oppose his election
This meeting did not represent all tho
Rogers opposition, but it certainly did
Elvo expression to tho sentiment and
purpose of an important part of it. It is
perfectly obvious that if Rogers is nomi
nated there will be a Populist bolt and
a third ticket, headed probably by Rob
ert Bridges, who says ho will not accept
renomlnation as Land Commissioner on
the same ticket with the Governor.
The truculonco of the Populists has had
some effect on tho delegates already
here, and the optimistic belief of the
Rogers leaders that they -would have
things all their own way has been well
nigh shattered. It is still evident that
Rogers Is in a very strong position, and
lie probably has a majority of the Dem
ocratic convention. It is a close question
as to who -will control the Populist con
vention: but there is a prospect that it
"will fall into tho hands of the anti
Rogers crowd. Tho Populist Central
Committee proposes to forco the tempo
rary organisation into the hands of the
anti-Rogers men, and if they succeed, tho
convention will scat tho contesting Pierce
County delegation. If the Rogers faction
controls tho Democratic convention, and
the anti-Rogers faction the Populist con
vention, the situation -will bo very h-ad
Indeed for the Governor.
Undoubtedly the Populists -would de
mand as tho price of their going Into a
union convention that Rogers bo eliminat
ed. If tho Democrats refuso, there will,
of course, bo no fusion. Tho Rogers
leaders understand that they have a
very vexatlouB problem to solvo in bring
ing the three conventions together on
terms agreeable to all, and they know
that among tho Populists thero -will ho
defections anyway. It Is vital, there
fore, that they have a majority In both
tho Democratic and Populist conventions.
It does not mako so much difference
about the Silver Republicans.
The anti-Rogers Democrats are going
to mako a very strong effort to capture
the preliminary organization of tho Dem
ocratic convention. The Democratic Stato
Central Committee will meet Monday
morning, and namo Thomas M. Vance
for temporary chairman. This Is Boss
Moloney's scheme, and it means a row.
Senator Turner arrived tonight, and
has taken 'active charge of tho Rogers
campaign. Tho Rogers people havo
needed a strong and forceful manager,
and they think they havo found Mm in
Turner. The three King County delega
tions havo agreed to act as a unit. There
are two or three delegates who would
not consent to tills arrangement, but
there are about 125 votes that will go to
Bother, and they -will go to Voorhees if

DOTTED IIXE SHOWS TRAIL OP MAZAMAS'
NEEDS OF THE SCHOOLS
RECOMMENDATIONS OP COUNTY
Accurate Reports Prom Teachers,
Better Supervision, and Abolition
of the Third-Grade Certificate.
SALBM, Or., Aug. 25. In "ite annual re
port blanks sent out by School Super
intendent Ackerman for the use of Coun
ty Superintendents, there is a page left
for recommendations and suggestions.
While there are few persons better quali
fied to express tho need3 of the common
schools than men who haye had practi
cal experience in the country and town
schools, and who have served as County
Superintendents, it Is noticeable that but
few of the Superintendents have anything
to offer in the way of "recommendations
and suggestions." In a Legislative year
this feature of tho annual reports is of
special importance, and will form an In
teresting part of the State Superintend
ent's biennial report to the Legislature.
The recommendations made by Superin
tendent Armstrong, of Multnomah Coun
ty, havo already been published. What
the otner County Superintendents have to
N. W. Boland, of Clackamas County
1 1 wish to suggest that If It be within the
power of the Superintendent of Schools,
either state or county, he or they compel
Clerks of districts to make such reports
as are .required, and that the same be
made with some degree of accuracy. We
have tried to furnish a complete and
correct report this year, and, so far as
wo are able to do so, I believe this to be
correct. But several districts reported 6
per cent or 3 per cent or VA per cent
special tax, which, in a certain district,
would amount to $C000. This we could but
guess at, and our report has been de
layed from time to tlmo by having-to
ask Clerks for corrections, referring to
enrollment, uierks report that teachers
do not present such Information to them.
Teachers who fail in this should not bo
permitted to teach.
I. H. Copeland, of Columbia County
There are a number of minor defects In
our present school laws that will, no
doubt, bo remedied by the meeting of our
next State Legislature. I 'believe, how
ever, that the most Important need of
our rural schools Is better supervision.
The qualifications exacted from every one
aspiring to 'the office of School Superin
tendent should be such as would bar
out all but able educators. Then the Su
perintendent should have more than sim
ple advisory authority In controlling and
directing the schools of his county, and
should bo required to devote all his time
to the work. Salaries of County Superin
tendents should be uniform throughout
the state, and should be based on the
number of schools to oversee.
William Johnson, of Crookf County, rec
ommends "a careful revision of the school
law, making clear many points capable of
more than one construction." Under tho
head 'of remarks, he has the following:
"The act of the last Legislature causing
5 mills to be the minimum amount for
school purposes -will have a beneficial ef
fect, not only In extended terms, but en
abling districts to adopt a more liberal
policy towards teachers In the. way of
compensation. It also removes from
County Courts, anxious to mako a rec
ord for economy, the temptation to take
from children the funds justly theirs and
apply them to some other purpose, prob
ably to serve some personal or political
William S. Guerin, of Curry County I
am strongly of the opinion that the Leg
islature made a grave mistake In pass
ing a law requiring four apportionments
during the year. The rural and Isolated
districts certainly derive no direct benefit
from It, for our schools, with few ex
ceptions, are taught between the months
of May and November. Should It so hap
pen that the apportionment In January
would bo large enough to glvo each- dis
trict Its $50, and a small pro rata In ad
dition, thereto, the same would be forfeit
ed by each district at the end of tho
school year On March), unless somo por
tion of it should be expended in the pay
ment of outstanding warrants.
W. M. Miller, of Lane County In my
opinion, the third-grade certificate should
be abolished and the teacher be required
to take a second-grade with an aver
age of SO per cent, .and not below CO per
cent In any one branch.
G. B. Lamb, of Tillamook It may be
well for the coming Legislature -to enact
a law prohibiting a teacher from hold

SERMONS BY TELEPHONE.
Snnnyside Ministers' Reach Their
Consreg-atlons by Wire.
SDNNTSIDE, Wash., Aug. 25. Sunny
side ministers now have greatly enlarged
congregations. The genius of their elec
trician, H. L. Brown, has added to tho
hearers all who have Christian Co-operative
Association 'phones. Mabton, eight
miles away, listened to the service last
Sunday, and heard every word of the
prayers and sermons. Persons who have
"phones can have as many receivers as
they havo listeners, so that any number
of people may have tho services of the
parson and the choir at one and the same
time and place without going to church.
REDUCTION OP ASSESSMENT.
Pierce County Board of Equalisation
TACOMA, Wash., Aug. 25. The Board
of Equalization today made a horizontal
reduction of assessments of real estate In
Pierce County, amounting to $2,000,000. The
reduction in this city is 10 per cent, out
side of the city 20 per cent.
Many of the farmers in this section have
completed their harvest, and In many cases
tho yield of grain is away below the aver
age. The flax crop is about the only
cereal In this vicinity that really came
up to the standard, and In many cases
the flax crop was worth more money to
the farmer than all the other crops put
together. Flax on good ground and In
favorable years will undoubtedly beat any
other crop, and where It is raised for the
straw, as was the case this year, it will
pay a good deal better than any other crop.
The sooner the average farmer gets tho
one-crop idea out of his head the better.
A few cows, a small band of sheep, and
a few hogs, along with several dozen
chickens, ducks and turkeys, all properly
managed and cared for will pay more In
terest and lift a larger mortgage than
all the wheat the land can produce.
Colt Show at Chehalis.
CHEHALIS, Wash., Aug. 25. The sec
ond colt show of the season was held at
Chehalis today. About 50 colts were en
tered. The prizes were cash, and were
for the best draft-horse, best yearlings,
2-year-olds, 3-year-olds and colts, all of
the premiums being for drafthorses.

Our Navy Compared With. England's.
PORTLAND, Aug. 25. (To the Editor.)
Would you please state In your paper
what would be the chances of the United
States Navy, as it exists today, against
the navy of Great Britain of today, In
the event of hostilities breaking out sud
denly between the two countries .(which
state of affairs is neither hoped for nor
expected)? Tho above question is asked
merely to settle an argument, and not
with an entire ignorance of tho facts.
And please also state the name of tho
largest ship afloat, name of line, and
whether larger than the Great Eastern.
The chances of the United States Navy
would be very unfavorable. England has
about five fighting ships to this country'B
Tho largest ship afloat Is the Oceanic, of
the White Star line, iSho Is 70G feet long.
6S feet beam, and 44 feet depth. Her ton
nage Is 17,274 tons, and she Is much larger
than was the Great Eastern.
Rice and Population.
In deciding whether China's population
Is dense or sparse it ought to be remem
bered that the country produces rice.
Countries which produce rice yield at
least two crops a year. Countries which
produce corn, on the other hand, only
yield one crop a year. Therefore, aj
portlonately to Its extent, a country
which, produces .rice ought to support at
least twice as large a population as a
country which produces corn.
SUMRTER, Or., Aug. 25. The weefc has
been a busy one in mining circles. Tho
arrival of several carloads of machinery
for the Red Boy and Golconda mines, and
of even greater importance the presence
of Captain Bley, Qf England, representing
the capitalists who hold the Llttlo Giant
and Magnolia properties; H. W. Miller,
general manager of he Umpqua mines;
E. A. Kingman, of Boston, the represent
ative of ex-Governor Mackintosh, to
gether with local experts and managers
of the prominent properties of the camp,
aro factors of Interest These mining men
are all here for a purpose. Captain Bley,"
while noncommittal, admitted having in
spected the Little Giant and Magnolia.
He wa3 evidently pleased with what ho
saw and what his expert thinks of tho
nnnes. The Little Giant ha3 been paid
for, has a mill partly constructed, with
all the machinery on the ground, and sev
eral hundred feet of development work,
but the main ledge is 75 to 100 feet from
the end of the tunnel. Two small ledges
were cut by the tunnel, both showing high
grade ore. The Magnolia is under bond
and partly paid for. It has a mill, but
for somo reason has not been a success
although th.e ore carries good values. An
other circumstance Is that there are sev
eral thousand dollars of unpaid bills out
standing among local miners and mer
chants. While Captain Bley will not say
so, ltis reported that the bills will be
paid, the bond on the Magnolia taken up
and work resumed.
Governor Mackintosh Is after one of
the big producing mines, but has made
no definite arrangements.
H. W. Miller, general manager of the
Umpqua, Is here to start work on a large
scale on his properties. This Is the nearest
mine to Sumpter that Is beings worked. It
Is four miles up McCullock fork on tho
Ibex road. In tho past 30 days a force haa
been at work on the Chance claim, driving
a tunnel to cut and follow the ledge.
While the ledge has not been cut the
character of rock encountered In the tun
nel Indicates that there Is a body of ore
not far off. Mr. Miller has Installed ore
cars and erected buildings for permanent
quarters. The force on the Chance claim
will be doubled and two shifts put to
work on the Gold Hill claim, where there
is a 245-foot tunnel that cuts tho ledge at
a depth of 160 feet, showing 10 feet of ore,
two feet of which assays up to $248 48,
and the remainder an average better than
$15. Tho foundation Is slate and the ore Is
of the same character -as that found In
the Golconda and other mines in the slate
Mr. Godfrey, of the Red Boy, while over
seeing the unloading of heavy machinery,
expressed his regrets at the poor transpor
tation lacumes oi tne camp m com
parison with Butte, Leadville and Cripple
Creek. Everything brought here must be
transferred at Baker City from the broad
gauge to the narrow gauge of the Sump
ter Valley Railroad and at Sumpter loaded
on wagons and hauled IS miles over the
mountains to the mine. In the other camps
the products of the mines and the ma
chinery used are taken direct to destina
tion without transfer, switches running
to all the mines. When these facilities are
Introduced here hundreds of low grade
mines will be put on tho list of producers.
The first Installment of machinery for tho
Red Boy's deep sinking plant has arrived.
It consists of a 160 horse-power boiler of
very heavy material, similar to marine
boilers, weighing 20,800 pounds, and sec
tions of the 125-foot smokestack, the ma
terial for which Is as heavy as ordinary
boiler iron. There will be three other
boilers of similar size and pattern, four
water tubes weighing 8000 pounds each,
together with the hoist, compressor, etc
This machinery was all purchased In Chi
cago because a much better freight rate
was obtained there than could bo se
cured from San Francisco.
At the mine the buildings and founda
tlons for the machinery are receiving at
tention and everything Is being pushed
so as to bo under cover before snow
The machinery for the Golconda con
sists of a station pump and surface pump
from Cambridge, Mass. The station pump
Is the most powerful ever brought to the
camp and will be Installed at once. While J
the size Is larger than the present body
of water requires, continued sinking on
the ledge renders It necessary. Tho new
stamps have been Installed and the out
put of the mine Is double what it was
60 days ago. The management is ar
ranging for an additional 20 stamps, the
development of the mine having reached
that stage at which an almost unlimited
amount of ore is blocked out ready to
Mill for the Ibex.
The shaft at the Ibex is being sunk
very rapidly. It is down 351 feet. Every
thing Is progressing famously at the mine
and when Mr. Hill, tho proprietor, looked
over the property a few days ago, ho
expressed himself well pleased with his
purchase, made two years ago, since
which time $50,000 has been expended In
The property Is now sufficiently devel
oped to warrant the placing of a mill In It,
and Mr. Hill promises that the R)ex
will be numbered among the producing
mines In the very near future.
Smelter May Be Moved.
"Tho Sumpter, smelter is getting ready
for another run to be made during the
coming week," says Smelter Expert
Loughlin. "We havo received 50 tons of
ore from the Tempest mine, located In tho
Greenhorn range, besides some from Baker
City, Quartzburg and other points, suffi
cient for a four or -five days' run. It is
found to bo almost impracticable to bring
tho base ore to the smelter owing to the
high charges for hauling. The cost of
bringing in the Tempest ore was $15 a
ton. The Quartzburg ores are equally dls-.
tant and the Cable Cone ores, owing to low
percentage of lead, though base, are not
desirable smelting ores. There are many
other points better located for a smelting
plant than Sumpter, and it Is probable
tho smelter will be moved. The majority
of the ores of the camp aro free milling
and concentrating, and can be treated at
the mines by company plants cheaper than
when shipped over bad roads to a smel
ter." Do Plants Reason?
New York Times.
In order to find the true answer to this
question a daughter of a prominent Mex
ican planter tried thB following experi
ment: This young lady drove a nail In
the wall some distance from the tendril
of a morning glory plant. The tendril be
gan at once to grow toward the nail. The
nail was shifted and the tendril shifted
Its course. Finally, a cord was hung up
to tempt the tendril, and It shifted its
course toward the cord, and left the nail
which it had flvo times persisted in fol
lowing. Smyrna Plague Quarantine.
