Fulton Calls on Quartermaster-General

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, bee. 3. There Is considerable talk
In Washington about the probability of
the passage of an omnibus public build
ing bill at the short session of Congress.
"With a view to securing recognition for
Oregon, Senator Fulton today called on
Supervising Architect Taylor to as
certain what amounts the Treasury De
partment will recommend be appropriated
for Oregon. He was told that the de
partment will urge the appropriation of
$100,000 for the purchase of a site and
tho erection of a public building at Oregon
City, and $S5;00D for the erection of a
public building at Baker City, , on a site
heretofore purchased. If tho omnibus bill
Is framed, an effort will be made to
have these appropriations Incorporated.
Senator Fulton today called on Quartermaster-General
Humphrey to urge that
the transport Logan be sent to Portland
to convey the Nineteenth Infantry from
Vancouver Barracks to Manila and also
to urge that the Logan on tho return
trip bring to Portland the regiment that
Is to replace the Nineteenth.
The Quartermaster-General is inclined
to send the troops via San Francisco, but
has promised Senator Fulton to give fur
ther consideration to Portland's claims.
General Humphrey's principal objection
to sending the transport Logan to Port
land Is she draws 26 feet of water, and he
fears she may have difficulty in crossing
the bar. Senator Fulton replies to this
that the ship will not draw over 23 feet
when she sails with the regiment, and at
this draft will experience no trouble at
the mouth of the river.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Dec 3. The Washington delega

hands, which must be settled during the
Winter or the President will do as he has
done in other states, take the matter into
Jils own hands. Three important Post
offices are to bo filled. Postmaster Crom

"his fate Is altogether In Senator Foster's
hands, the other members of the delega

him have fall sway in this appointment.
Senator Ankeny and Representative
Humphrey are Involved In a bitter con

ALASKAN JUDGE IS NAMED.
R. A. Gunnison, of New York, Per
sonal Choice of Roosevelt.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU,. Wash
ington, Dec 3. Again President Roose
velt has utterly -disregarded the recom
mendations of Senators and Representa
tives, and has appointed a man of Ills own
choice to a responsible office. Royal A.
Gunnison, of BInghamton, N. Y., was to
day appointed United States Judge for the
First Division In Alaska, to Bucceed Mel
ville G Brown, whose resignation has
been demanded. He was offered the place
by the President several days ago because
of Ills known fitness and high character.
Since the place was tendered to him he
has been Indorsed in highest terms by
representatives of the' Judiciary in New
York, and by President Schurman, of
Cornell University. The only political in
dorsement which Gunnison has Is that of
Representative Dwlght, of New York.
In selecting Gunnison, the President dis
regarded the representations of many
delegations. Oregon, for a whole year,
has been indorsing Judge W. C. Hale, of
Grant's Pass. The Wyoming, California,
North Dakota and Minnesota delegations
all had candidates with, strong Indorse
ments. There is hope that one of these
favorlties may be appointed to a Judge
ship later on. In case Judge Moore Is re
moved, or the ponding bill authorizing an
additional Judge in Alaska should pass.
There Is an understanding that Represent
ative Lacey, of Iowa, who blocked the
passage of this bill last session, has with
drawn his objection. If this be true, there
will probably be a new judicial district
created this Winter.
Mr. Gunnison graduated from the
law school of the Cornell University
in 1S96, and since that time has been
practicing Jaw In BInghamton. In 1898,
he was appointed referee in bankrupt
cy for the district In which BIngham
ton is situated, and in that position es
tablished an enviable reputation for
Industry, ability and a thorough understanding-
of the bankruptcy law. He
was afterward appointed by the faculty
of the Cornell University law school as

lowest was two. Five Republican ballots
were written by one person. The other
52 ballots on which the expert noted simi

It is the general belief among the attor
neys who have followed the contempt pro
ceedings closely that the result of the dis
coveries made by the court will be to
bring the ballot box of every precinct
where contempt Is charged Into court for
examination. There are six more pre
