HUN6RY. ONES ARE WAITING Senators antt Representatives - Ad- ioara to' Meet-Again Those Who Plae Xer PlaBasCoolTkeir Heels 1b. Corridors. i- Nothing dropped from the Federal plum tree yesterday, and the anxious gentlemen who loitered outside the privy council -will have to sweat all over again. The Con J gressional delegation didn't shake the tree at all; only received a heap at applica tions and placed them on file, -without saying a word about them, except per haps to talk them over. Senator Mitchell was there; so was Sen ator Fulton; also Representative "William son and RepresentaUve Hermann. The Big Four went Into conclave at 2 o'clock. Three o'clock came, and still they were at it; then 4 o-ciock, and next 5. Gentle north breeze3 floated through the open windows into the council chamber to cool the Intense ardor of the work within. Room 500 it was, In Hotel Portland; ele vator boy knows the place. Sometimes a devoted, admirer of one or all of the Con gressmen would butt In, but he would stay only a few moments. Public interest in the council was in tense. The cerebral batteries oa the out side were all highly charged with expec tancy. Several of the best and meetest aspirants were In the city, and they made( their legs very Ured walking- lmpauentiy up and down the hard pavements. Real ly they perspired, even though the day was cool. But nobody will yet inherit his inheritance not yet a while. Next week the delegation wlU meet again, perhaps Tuesday, or mayhap "Wednesday. Then may come the finale of the great dream fugue, and yet maybe not. It is a con solation, at least, that no lives were lost yesterday. After the meeting all hand3 went to dinner. Senator Fulton then hied, to As toria and Mr. Hermann returned to Rose- burg. Mr. "Williamson will probably turn back homeward today. Many Shovr Interest. Georee C. Brownell. candidate for DIs trlct Attorney, came down from Oregon City in all his glory, attired In a stunning blue suit, cuffs, collar and a fresh dun colored hat. The Clackamas gentleman was vcrv attenUve to the members of the delegation before the council took -up. Judge Moreland, his rival, was spry. w. havintr trot ud with the sun. John Hall, who continues to hold office until his sue cessor Is annolnted. was quite willing fo; the rivalry between Brownell and More- land to continue indefinitely. A throne of respectable gentlemen loitered about the public places. John Fox, of Astoria was in town, and so was "Walter Robb.. of the same city. w. it. Ellis,- of "Pendleton, was in evidence, Ex State Senator "Tod" Cameron, of Jack sonville, though of the minority party, had his ears open for news. State Sen ator K. V. Carter, of Ashland, was con spicuous in a bright, new straw hat. G. B. Dlmick, of Oregon City, came down to see how his friend. George Brownell. was making It. Ex-Governor Geer looked down from on high with the appearance of a man who was sightseeing only. Ira B. Riddle, of Douglas County, was in the city attending to business connected with his candidacy for one or tne iana omces at Roseburg. Asa B. Thompson, who was recently appointed to the La Grande Land Office, was taking in the sights, u. "W. Klnnalrd, of Clackamas, was on hand to congratulate successful aspirants Frank Grant, candidate for Deputy Dis trict Attorney, was seen In several places. C. E. Kenyon, of Burns, who would like to be receiver of the Burns Land Office, was a frequent figure. William Miller, of Ontario, State Prosecuting Attorney of the Ninth District, surveyed the ground from the high places. And these were onlv a few of the personages whose brains secreted political thoughts while the privy council upstah-3 was supposed to be cut ting pie. Mr. Hermann was a little short of breath when he lolned the council. He was late and had hurried. He had left the Im nerlal Hotel amply ahead of the appointed hour but had been stopped a score of times in, his walk of. three blocks to tho PorUand HoteL The persons Whosaccost- ed him were choice friends, who must have a handshake before they would let him go on. Mr. Hermann found the two Senators and Me. "Williamson waiting for him. Thereat all hands, Senator Mitch ell's private secretary Included, got down to business. Many candidates' were up for appoint ment. Their applications made a great big heap of papers. Senator Fulton and Mr. Williamson were somewhat discour aged at first when they looked, from the long Ust of applicants to the short list of jobs. But Senator Mitchell ana nepre sentatlve Hermann are old at the busi ness, and started, right In. The names as they came up were classified as to the offices. -The merits or demerits of the can didates were not discussed, at least the members of the delegation say so, nor were any recommendations to the Presl dent decided upon.

Recommendations of all the aforesaid gentlemen were read by the delegation and then, were put away in -envelopes one envelope for. each -Job. The envelopes , were, next stacked up7 one upon, the other and the whole bundle was bound wIt red tape. The precious bundle was tin placed upon Senator Mitchell's dressir. table, where Is reposed all night. The Se; ator's working table was so cluttered i with other papers and documents thai it had. no space for the recommendaUon Senator Mitckell Is Amased. There." said Senator Mitchell, after tr 1 conventicle, "there are all the recosimer dations," and patted the Bundle tenderb The -Senator was amused" to knqw thu political gossip had been so terribly cei. tered. in the delegation meeting. "Is that so?" he remarked in a men tone. "Is that so? "Well, we didn't c anything worth mentioning. "We didn't d. clde "upon a single recommendation to U. President, only went over the applica tions. Nearly all of the time we devote to the. consideration of Congressional bus ness. We discussed the improvement t vSIuslaw River and sent a telegram to tt War Department asking for immediav.

"W.e shall make up our mind after we have conferred with the Expc sltion management." The "Warner "Valley matter has been pre sented to the delegation but. no actio was taken on It yesterday, andtit was no. even discussed. .
