OREGON CITY, Or., July 30. (Special.)
In pfrfect harmony -the "Republican' as
sembly of Clackamas" County this after
noon decided to recommend candidates
for county offices, and then placed . a
complete ticket in the field, from Sj.ate.
Senator to Surveyor. Even the most
rabid anti-assembly men admit that the
ticket is one of the strongest named by
the Republicans of Clackamas County
for many years. The geographical situa
tion was carefully studied by all of the
delegates in making the nominations,
with the result that all of the offices did
not go to Oregon City, as has been the
case ever since the direct primary law
was placed in operation. The assembly

There seems to be an impression that
the assembly is a blow at the primary
law." said Chairman John II. Gibson, of
Harmony Precinct, in calling the assem

not been a single man to whom I have
talked who has ever suggested such a
procedure. The Legislature would never
dare to repeal a law that has been adopt
ed by tho people. The primary law is
the best measure ever enacted, and I
shall use all my efforts to uphold and
defend it. The Democrats have never
put up a ticket that was not agreed upon
in private conference. Iet.us indorse the
best men. and let's riot have any wire

to you there is not an office In the gift
of this county that could be handed to me'

M. J. Lee, of Canby, said the majority
of tho members of the Republican party
favor organization, and the .party cannot

"One or twr. men are trying to rule

Representative McCredie was called
upon for a speech and he responded
and spoke for an hour, defending his
stand for voting with the regulars dur
ing 'his term 'in Congress. His -name

Representative McCredie told the as
semblied delegates the story of his
life from the time he attended the little
red schoolhouse back in Iowa.
In speaking of Polndexter, Mr. Mc
Credie said: "Mr. Polndexter and I
differ extremely In our opinions on
various questions that come up.
"Senator Jones is a good man and I
will say here that you would have to
rake the State of Washington a long
time before you would find a better
Senator than Mr. Jones. I will always
be a Jones man
- "In speaking of indorsing a candi
date for Senator west of the moun
tains. I will say that I think we are
entitled to it. Two-thirds of the pop
ulation live west of the mountains
and one-third east of them, so I think
that we should at least have one Sen
ator to look after our interests.
"I have always been an admirer of
William H. Taft. I have found that
Theodore Roosevelt is also an admirer
of William H Taft. In Washington
we Republicans did have some differ
ences, but sot so much as you may
have been led to believe by the reports
sent .out from there. When Roasevelt
was in Africa we heard it rumored in
Washington that when he came back
he would wield his big stick and crush
a number of us regular Republicans;
and until he landed on American soil,
the rumor persisted, but I have yet to
find th&t he has crushed any of us.
Some of our colleagues (referring to
the insurgents) made it a point to go
to visit Mr. Roosevelt, and when they
came away from his home they always
wore a smile. But-he-has spoken but
once or twice, and then only did he
speak to deny certain stories that were
too strong for him."

choice. This question has been a bone
of contention in both political parties,
with the result that all party leaders
are undecided and voters are at sea.
In order " to make the decision binding-,
providing- that the test case is re
sorted to,-it will be carried direct to
the Supreme Court of the' state with
the petition that -an early opinion be
filed. In stipulating the case it will be
assumed by the Attorney--General that
the primary election has taken place
and that first and second-choice votes
had been cast for the Republican Gub
ernatorial nominees. Governor James
H. Brady and George TV. Fletcher.- It
will be contended that the second
choice feature of the primary la not
mandatory,, and that an elector voting
for first choice and not second is enti
tled to bis vote being counted.
The Attorney-General has positively
refused to take action. In view of the
fact that he believed that his office
was not the place from which such a
decision should come; that the Supreme
Court of -the state is the tribunal to
pass upon . it- .
While the primary law is creating a
great deal of dissatisfaction, electors
and candidates for offices are endeavor
ing to comply with its terms so far as
nominations are . concerned. Attempts
to form slates have not only been pre
vented, but in many Instances those
who endeavored to manipulate these
slates have been forced to retire into
political oblivion. Registrations for
electors open in August.

ASTORIA, - Or.. July 80. (Special.)
Astoria Lodge, No. 180, of Elks, has
decided to celebrate the laying tf the
cornerstone of its new $75,000 temple
by holding a monster clambake and
inviting all the Elks of the Northwest
to attend. The first such clambake
was given 18 years ago, when all trans
portation was b- boat, but was a great
success. A committee began to work
out the details immediately, invita
tions were extended in eve-y direction
and committees were appointed in the
various lodges to "make arrangements
for their - members, until it is plainly
evident that the reunion and clambake
to be held at Astoria and Seaside on
August 6 and 7 will be one of the
greatest events of Its kind ever held
on the North Pacific Coast.
The Astoria Elks will serve over two
tons of clams of five different varieties
found on the Oregon, and Washington
coasts. Three hundred gallons of the
famous Clatsop Beach clam chowder
will be served. The table will be 850
feet in length, upon which, at equal
distances, will be laid the finest speci
mens of the royal Chinook salmon ob
tainable on the Lower Columbia River.
These fish will be stuffed, baked and
garnished, and laid head to tail along
the entire length, of the table.
The : baking of , the olams will be a
very interesting process. A great
trench will be dug In the rocks, 30
Inches wide and about 18 Inches deep,
