IT TO CAKE
Bourne Men Say They Will Not
Be Responsible if Cham
berlain Is Elected.
SEND LETTERS TO VOTERS
Junior Senator Will Address Epistles
to 10,000 Republicans In Be
half of Party Xomlnees
in the Primaries.
If Governor Chamberlain defeats H. M.
Cake for Senator in June, Senator
Bourne and his friends say they do not
propose to be held responsible. The
Bourne forces profess to see the real
reason the Fultoh-Taft combination ig
nored them so completely in the recent
convention. Tnoy declare that the "pro
(tramme" organization in control of the
convention sought by its methods not
only to eliminate and discredit Bourne,
but to Incite his fo'lowers to open rebel
lion and non-support of the Republican
.ticket from Cake down.
"But the friends of Bourne are not
going to allow themselves to be caught
In any such trap," said J. F. Kertehem,
secretary of the Republican County Cen
tral Committee and a member of the
Bourne camp, .yesterday. " Since the
convention last Thursday, we have re
doubled our efforts in support of Cake
and the entire ticket, and will continue
the good work until the polls close on
June 1. We are supporting Cake loyally,
and If he Is defeated the responsibility
will not belong to us."
Cake Letters From Bourne.
Word went "out from Bourne's Port
land headquarters yesterday, John ' C.
Young, private secretary, in charge, that
Bourne would jnail 10.000 letters from
Washington to prominent Republicans of
the state urging them to support Cake
faithfully because of the principle in
volved. Bourne people contend that
Statement No. 1 is at stake fully as much
as the candidacy of the Republican can
didate and the edict proposes that all
friends of the statement, sheath their dag
gers and rally to the support of Cake.
The Bourne people point to the activity
of their chief and his campaign subscrip
tions of $1000 as evidences that he will
be good, dismiss any suspicions he may
have had of Cake's loyalty to Statement
No. 1 and support Cake solely for the
reason of the principle that is involved.
The Fulton people are just as effusive
In their pledges of loyalty to the ticket,
and when the votes are counted on the
night of June 1, if Chamberlain should
be found to be elected, the question of
who did it will await an answer. Ful
ton's friends declare that it Is up to
Cake to look after the Republicans who,
with many Democrats, registered as Re
publicans, voted for Cake in the primary
election for the purpose of having him
beat Fulton, only in turn to vote for
Chamberlain In the June election. It is
this class of voters and not the Fulton
Republicans, points out J. H. Brown, Ful
ton's right-hand lieutenant, that Cake
must .line up.
Take Stump for Taft.
Since Congress will not adjourn until
late this month. Senator Fulton Willi not
return to Oregon until after the Repub
lican - National Convention in Chicago
next month. Should Secretary Taft be
nominated for President, Senator Fulton
will remain In the East and take the
stump for Taft.
The Republicans at Astoria are plan
ning to give Cake a cordial reception
when he visits Senator Fulton's home
town next Tuesday. G. C. Fulton has
charge of the arrangements for the meet
ing that will be held in Astoria Tues
day night, when Mr. Cake will address
the Clatsop County voters.
Next Tuesday night a gener.il meeting
of the Republican County Central Com
mittee, including representatives from
every precinct In the county, will be held
at headquarters in the Marquam build
ing. Invitations have also been extended
to every candidate on the ticket, the pur
Jose of the gathering being to acquaint
the party workers with thier candidates,
delegates from different precincts meet
in the office of Secretary Kertehem every
night and discuss the situation. The
organization In this way manages to
learn of conditions in every section of
the county and effective work Is being
done to strengthen the weak spots and
Insure the election of the entire ticket.
WORD FOR SHERIFF.
Declaration for Word by the Munici
PORTLAND, May 16. To the Voters
of Multnomah County Gentlemen We
esteem it a privilege to indorse the
candidacy of T. M. Word for the office
of Sheriff of this county.
His record during his previous occu
pancy of this most important office
was of the very highest character, and
members of the County Court have
borne testimony to the fact that he
was the best Sheriff that Multnomah
County ever had. The work which he
accomplished during those two years
has made its Influence felt throughout
the whole state, and we are. reaping the
benefits of it today In the higher moral
tone and the greater respect for law
which pervades the community.
During the past two years few, if
any. arrests have been made by the
present Sheriff for infraction of the
gambling laws, either within or with
out the city limits, though it has been
apparent that more or less secret gam
bling has been In progress, especially
during the past year. Cigar and money
playlng slot machines have been tol
erated, and other vicious practices have
not been prohibited outside the city
Tom Word, when in office, made his
light on vice when it meant great sac
riftee to prosecute privileged evil.
Sheriff Stevens has made his fight on
the question of feeding the county
prisoners, going the length of haying
r :t passed by the last Legislature to
carry his point, and this net which is
now before the people under the refer
endum invoked by the County Court,
must be voted upon at the forthcoming
We believe that the man for the of
fice of Sheriff is he who has demon
strated his superior fitness for it by an
acknowledged record of unselfish devo
tion to the highest interests of the peo
ple: and with the utmost confidence in
his ability. Integrity and conscientious
ness, we urge the election of Tom

Tornado Carries Paper 100 Miles.
WALDO, Ark., May 16. A remarkable
example of the carrying power of a tor
nado was evidenced when a number of
papers, dated at Gilliam, La., 100 miles
south of Waldo, were picked up on the
streets here. Gilliam was visited by a
tornado Wednesday that wiped the town
off the map, wrecking all buildings of
any consequence, and on the evening of
the tornado a shower of leaves, small
twigs and rubbish fell at Waldo. The
fpllowing morning, amidst the rubbish,
papers of Gilliam, consisting of a check
dated at Gilliam, which had been paid,
and an Invoice of goods that had been
received at Gilliam by a merchant were
found, and there is no doubt that the
storm which wrecked the little village In
Louisiana passed over this place, though
so high as to do no damage.
JAIL A JOKE TO BANKER
Parisian Swindler Lives on Fat of
PARIS, May 9. The imprisoning of
Henri Rochette (the French Whltaker
W'right, or promoter on a stupendous
scale), who is accused of swindling, is a
joke which Parisians for the most part
take with admirable good humor. The
exceptions are those who lost money In

is given the pseudo prisoner Is that he

Ail the other inmates of the prison of

begging also to be allowed to carry on
their own business affairs during the

The Matin has been publishing a series
of sensational articles asserting that
Rochette was protected by influential
statesmen, prominent among them being
This protection, the journal suggests,
enabled the banker to rifle the pockets of
the public to a much greater extent than
otherwise would have been possible.
P00RH0USE CAUSES DEATH
Old Physician Dies of Grief at Being
WASHINGTON. N. J.. May 16.-Griev-Ing
because he was compelled to 'go to
the almshouse. Dr. Charles B. Warring
ton, for more than 35 years a practicing
physician in various parts of New Jer
sey towns, died in the Warren County
Almshouse, where he had been for the
past 10 days.
For a year he had lived yith a son,
John Warrington, at Nazaret. but a
short time ago he left that house. The
aged physician had made a will leaving
his small estate to a blind son, Penrose
Warrington, of Hampton; Junction.
There was pp place fotr the old -man,
except the almshouse. The disgrace of
being a public charge where he had for
merly been a leading citizen preyed on
the aged physician so that he became 111
and quickly passed away.

In recounting the experience. Gump said
he saw a chance to escape while the high
wayman was taking his watch and
money, and that at a favorable moment
he fled. There was a crash and Gump
thought the highwayman was firing at
him. As a matter of fact, the crash was
due to Gump's leap through the parlor
window. The window consisted of one
pane of glass, which Gump demolished.
His feet were cut as he went through the
window, and his wrists when he struck
the ground, falling on his hands and
Still asleep, Gump got up and dashed
wildly toward the pavement, dreaming the
highwayman was in pursuit. During the
heavy rains a puddle of water had formed
in front of the house. When, Gump, bare
footed, struck this it woke him, not har
monizing, even in a dream, with any form
of torture highwaymen inflict.
The family was awakened by the crash
and Gump was taken back into the house,
where his slight injuries were attended.
