elected by the state convention and
two each by the two Congressional Con

has been advocated by Senator Bourne.

tinable to secure the nomination for
President on the flrst ballot. Senator
Bourne and his representative, Mr.
Young, argue that it would be a mis
lake for Oregon to end a delegation
pledged to the support of Taft or of
any other candidate. In reflecting the
sentiments of his chief. Voun? declares
that It would be better to the ad
vantage of the state In that event to
have a delegation that would not be
bound to any particular candidate and
could get Into the proper bandwagon at
the opportune time.
Kxxvl Stampede to Kooscvclt.
Mr. Bourne's plan contemplates that
Taft will not receive the nomination
on the flrst ballot. In that event be ex
pects a stampede to Roosevelt on the
aecond ballot, the President being the
eecond choice of a number of the dele
gates that have been named from the
varloua states. But if it should develop
that the opposition to Taft has or
Runlicd its forces against Roosevelt as
thoroughly as they are organized
salnrt Taft. It Is conceded that the
stsme elements would defeat consider
ation of Roosevelt's name. With such
a contingency the nomination undoubt
ed y would go to one of the several
fr.vorite ions whose names have been
proposed. Cnder such circumstances
those in this state who oppose the plan
for an unlnstructcd delegation figure
that Senator Bourne might undertake
to ieliver the vote from this state in
nupport of Knox, who Is Mr. Bourne's
choice for President after Roosevelt.
At any rate. Mr. Bourne's scheme will
pot receive the unanimous indorsement
of the tate and Congressional con
ventions, and if It Is adopted at all it
undoubtedly will he for the reason that
the .iunior Senator and his lieutenants

sufficiently to carry their programme
i"to execution. There will be delegates

sending any delegation to the National
convention that will support Roosevelt
at any time. The same clement will not

However, the extent to which Senator
Bourne's plan will be successful de

W. M. Cake Avoids Complications.
W. M. Cake, who probanly will be
elected clisirman of the Slate Central
Committee, yesterday declined to discuss
the auhject of a delegation to the Re
publican National Convention or to Inti
mate whether or not he thought it should
be instructed. "I have sought to avoid
the complications that arise from an
active participation in the organization
of a state convention and the considera
tion of matter coming before it." said
Mr. Cake. "Kor that reason. I am having
nothing to do mitli the preliminary work
of oraanlsing the convention, which will
be left to select delegates to the Na
tional Convention as it may decide so far
as I am concerned. 1 desire to see my
brother elected to the Senate and I am
not paying any attention to or discussing
any other .phase of the political situa

Senator Bourne's project for an unln
structed delegation from this state, yes
terday denied that a slte had been pre
pared to be rushed through the state con
vention. He admitted that the names of
several prominent Republicans of the
slate were being considered a desirable
delegates. Included among these, he said,
were supi triers of Taft. Fairbanks.
Hughes and l.a Follette but since it was
proposed that the conventions would not
Instruct the delegation for any one candi
date there would b? no objection to the
proposed delegates because of their indi
vidual preferences. Aside from admitting
that Senators Bourne and Fulton prob
ably would be delegates. Mr. Young re

Included in Scheme.'
- Portland is to have public squares
and iuslde parks equal to any In the
country, if the plans of the Park Board
and Kmil T. Mlsche. the new superin
tendent, meet with the approval of the
people. The Board yesterday examined
a plan for the improvement of Holla
day Park, submitted by the superin
tendent, and which was prepared along
lines suggested by Ion Lewis, a mem
ber of the Board who recently made a
trip to the Eastern cities with a view
of examining the best and most ap
proved methods of park Improvements
carried out m that part of the country.
The plan Is herewith reproduced
and shows what eventually is to be
accomplished toward beautifying one
of the city's East iide parks. The
work, when undertaken, is to be done
pradually, that portion of the park
borderlne on East Thirteenth street,
which will provide for a playground,
bordered with ornamental trees and
shrubbery, to be practically finished
this year. Thereafter the Improve

tion of the park to provide women's
and men's gymnasiums, swimming
pools, wading pools and sand courts
for little children;- .concert grove,
drinking fountains and a community
hall, where public meetings of vari
ous kinds will be held.
The present intention ts to apply
whatever portion of the appropriation
is available in the making of the play
field ,ind concert grove, and to con
tinue the work as fast as other funds
beoome available. Mr. Lewis, in re
ferring to the plans of the Board yes
terday, said that it is desired to ob

people concerning- the proposed Im

able objections could be advanced

Board, they would be sent in for con

ENGINEER PILLS THROTTLE WIDE OPEX AXD TRAIN PASSES OVER IX SAFETY.
McCORMICK. Wash., April 25. (Spec.al. ; What might have been an accident, costing more than a score
of lives, was only averted by the coolneS3 and presence of mind of Engineer F. S. Stevens, of the logging
train belonging to the JlcCormick Cumber Company, a few days ago. The train, the rirst to leave the yards
on the morning of the wreck, had 3ft woodsmen aboardwho were on their way to work, and how the en
gine, weighing 35 tons, and its load of human freight escaped destruction In the waters of Lester Creek is
little short of miraculous. The heavy rains of the early part of the week had swollen the creek into a
small river, and during the night the mad rush of the water had swept away the center pier of the bridge
that spans the creek two miles east of McCorniick. Traveling at the rate of 13 miles an hour, the train
was within 10 feet of the bridge when the engineer discovered that only the rails and the ties to which
they were spike.d were all that remained and. realizing that to stop would be fatal, he pulled the throttle
wide open and dashed across, reaching the opposite side as the bridge collapsed in his wake. R. Allison, a
member of the crew, jumped and landed among the rocks at the edge of the creek, sustaining three
broken ribs and serious internal injuries. The accompanying picture, which was taken for The Oregonian,
shows the engine and the condition of "the bridge after the train had passed over.

to pay attention to the project for erect

will probably ask why a German should
not be on the committee, as well as an
American, and on what principle of 'in

the design should be conflned to members
of English-speaking races. Germany's
right to this matter Is acknowledged by
that characteristically English authority,
the Daily Telegraph, the Belgian cor
respondent of which points out that, to
the shame of England, Germany already
has a Shakespere monument more
worthy than any England can boast of,
a Shakespere Society more vigorous, and
a Shakespere Literature more exhaustive.
The facts will not be new to anyone ac
quainted with German scholarship.
The correspondent adds that Professor
Otto Lessing's unconventional statue ot
the bard at Weimar, which represents
him as seated in a free and uncon
strained attitude on a low, square
pedestal, is not so ambitious a work as
that which it is now proposed to erect
in London: but it is already there, and

parts of the empire. The , German
