REFORM LEADERS WEARIED
Dyed-ln-WooI Progressives Begin
ning to Wonder Whether They
Are to Profit by Fight
BY EITMNER CURTIS.
WASHINGTON. July .13. (Special.)
Some of the public's servants, valuable
and respected members of Congress,
are growing weary of the game. . TTley
are not being driven from official ser
vice by the reaction against reac Mon
ism, because they are dyed-in-the-wool
progressives. . They are the . advanced
leaders in the cause which the senti
ment of the day supports; yet they
dread such fights as they, have to
make to keep alive politically, wonder
if the sacrifices they undergo, in neg
lecting private business for the public
weal are Justified, and are now hesi
tating between duty to friends at home
and duty to themselves.
; Statesmen Still Hesitating;,
If certain statesmen whose names are
more or less household words follow
their inclination, there will be some
announcements that will be Interesting,
If not sensational,, in the near future.
The rupture In the ranks of the Re
publican party will present some of
the ; responsibility. Of course those
who are in public life for the living
and Incidental glory they get out of it
and who are not forced by circum
stances over which they have no con-
fr6T"nto return "to" their private busi
ness affairs," are not affected by the
mixup In the political situations
As to at least a few others, the ad
vices they received within a short time
from those . to whom they feel under
obligations to keep the cause afloat
will determine their course of action,
It is not permissible to mention names
at this time, but consent to do so miy
come any day.
Taft Urged To Clean House.
A shakeup that would make the for
tho-cood-of-the-servlca order-of a met
ronolitan chief of Dollce K look like a
love letter is being urged by strong
party men of Republican persuasion in
Congress. They are urging that Presi
dent Taft do the shaking. They de
rlare it necessary to stimulate the ef
fectlve action of the organizations that
must be depended on to eiect me na
tional ticket In November If It Is in
the cards to elect it. They do not care
if the shakeup hits some high places
In the Government service, in iaci.
that is what they want it to do. The
point particularly dwelt upon is that
President Taft has been keeping in of
fice men who not only do him no good
politically but whose hearts are not
with him in the work he is trying to
do, insofar as it means the continuance
of his administration. . '
Some apecine Instances of this have
been noted in news dispatches the last
week. There are other cases that are
being talked about In the cloak rooms
of Congress' and there Is at least one
department of the Government which
is declared to be honeycombed with dis
loyalty; where there has been a cabal
apparently working in the interest of a
rival of the President and where sub-

Mme. Jennie Norelll, the famous prima

Covent Garden, London, ' and known
throughout the world as "The Swedish
Nightingale," walked two miles on
an Oregon road yesterday and . then

famous singer in her programmes, and
Mme. Norelll's manager all tramped
This unique experience of the well-
known soprano, who travels with all
of the comforts that up-to-date travel
ing' equipment can afford, was due to
the wreck of two gravel cars of a
work train on the Oregon Electric yes
terday 13 miles north of Albany. 'The
passenger train on which Mme. Norelll
and her company were coming to this
city, was Just behind the work train
which was wrecked.
' Informed that it would take hours to
clear the track, the singer and her com
pany decided to walk two miles to
reach a telephone and order an automo
bile to bring them to this city.
The company was almost an hour
late for their Chautauqua appearance
but the big crowd, realizing the dif
ficulties Mme.- Norelll had overcome to
fill her engagement, gave an ovation
to the famous singer when she appeared
on the platform.
