THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAU. PORTLAND- JULiY 18, 1913.
EXISTENCE OF NEW
Self-Nominated Candidates o
Bull Moose Puzzled at
LOCAL TICKET IS BARRIER
George VT. Joseph, Who Attended
Mass Meeting, Says Organization
Not a "Xew Party" but a Pro
test on Chicago Outcome.
Did Roosevelt's Oregon supporters at
their mass meeting In Portland last
Thursday actually organize a third
If they did why did the convention
fail to adopt a party name and include
it in the declaration of principles that
If a new party was formed, what is
it going to do about placing state ana
county tickets in the Held?
These are some of the Questions self
nominated delegates who attended the
convention are asking each other and
their answers differ widely. It Is
certainty that Dan Kellaher, L. M
Lepper and some of the other members
of the National Progressive Club of
Oregon, who issued the call for the
gathering, fully intended to form
progressive Roosevelt, Bull Moose,
party of some kind. But in the minds
nf Oeorare W. Joseph and other dele
gates there exists a serious question if
the proceedings or the convention were
sufficient In themselves for the Incuba
tion of the proposed new political or
"Party Lines Eliminated."
"I hardly think we organized a new
party." said Mr. Joseph yesterday, "but
I do not see the necessity ior a tniro
party at this time. Under the Oregon
system there Is no such thing as party
fealty. Our system has eliminated
party lines and has laid the party
whlD on the shelf.
"This is a progressive age in which
the man and the principles for which
he contends are placed above party. Our
convention was a. protest against tne
work of the Republican National con
vention and a demand for another ex
pression from the people as to their
choice for the Presidency between Taft
and Roosevelt and the Democratic
nominee. That is what we desire and
with conditions as they are in this
state we can obtain that expression
through the means we have provided
without organizing another political
Dr. H. W. Coe and State Senator
Kellaher differ from their co-worker.
State Senator Joseph, in this partic
ular. They maintain that the mass
meeting performed every possible step
that could be expected to give Identity
to a new party.
"Don't know what more we could
have done," said Mr. Kellaher. yester
day. "The meeting was called for the
nunoje of organising another party.
We adopted" a platform, elected dele
gates to the Chicago convention, nomi
nated Presidential electors and pro
vided for a state central committee by
which the affairs of the party shall be
directed. We did not even wait for
the Chicago convention. We most Burely
organized a National Progressive party
In this state and before the November
election arrives we will have vigorous
organizations of our party In every
county of the state."
This same view was expressed by Dr.
C e. who argues that the proceedings
of the convention were entirely regu
lar and complete so far as bringing
the new party Into existence.
New Party Born. Sr Dr. Cm.
"I surely regard that the new party
has been born in this state as a result
of Thursday's mass meeting." said Dr.
Coe. "As to the scope of Its work,
that Is a matter to be decided by the
members of the state central committee
for which we have arranged. It will
consist of a member from each county,
elected by the adherents of the new
party in those localities."
Although the convention laid on the
table a resolution declaring lor full
state and county tickets, the subject
has not been disposed of finally. It
is sure to come up for further consid
eration when the proposed state cen
tral committee meets for organization
after the Chicago convention.
The Roosevelt forces in this state
are very much disagreed as to the ad
visability of naming progressive or
third-party candidates for all state and
county offices. Some would nominate
complete tickets from United States
Senator to Constable. Others would
nominate candidates for only United
States Senator and Representatives In
Congress. Still another element would
have the new party confine Its efforts
exclusively to establishing the party
this year and go after the offices in
Independent Candidates Likely.
Regardless of any official action the
proposed state central committee may
take, it is very probable that the mem
bers of the party in several of the
counties will bring out independent
candidates to oppose those nominees
chosen last April who refuse to pledge
their support to Roosevelt In the Presi
dential contest In this state.
In the meanttme, the supporters of
Roosevelt and his third party pro
gramme In this state will await the
command of the leader of the herd
when it assembles in convention at
Chicago, August 5. That gathering is
expected definitely to commit Itself on
the question of bringing out state and
county tickets in the various states.
Its action will have much to do with
the eventual disposition of the matter
by the Roosevelt forces in Oregon.
KELLAHER IS STILL, SILEXT
Let 'Km Guess Awhile," Replies
Man Who Accepted Trust for Taft.
Will Dan Kellaher run as a Taft or a
Roosevelt elector? Can he retain both
nominations and be a candidate against
himself? Can he resign as a Taft Re
publican elector? Will he agree to vote
for that candidate for President, whose
group of electors Is elected In this
state? How will his name appear on
the official ballot?
These are fair samples of a score of
queries that are being addressed by
perplexed Republican voters of the state
to the Taft-Republlcan-Roosevelt-Bull-Moose
nominee for Presidential elector.
The answer to most of the Interroga
tions is locked up In Mr. Kellaher's
breast and he refuses to tell.
Let 'em guess awhile,'' replied Mr.
Keliaher yesterday when asked to dis
cuss his dual nominations.
In the meantime, supporters of both
President Taft and Roosevelt are be
coming impatient with Mr. Kellaher.
They are Insisting that he make a
statement making plain whether he will
support Taft or Roosevelt. Having ac
cepted the Republican nomination and
having filed an official acceptance In
the office of the Secretary of State. It
Is contended by some that Mr. Kellaher
cannot resign. In the face of this, aver
Aioio who crlUcUa iU Jdultuomali.

cepted the nomination of a mass meet
ing of progressives aa a Roosevelt elect
"In other words." said a prominent
Republican yesterday, "Mr. Kellaher is
attempting to do Indirectly what he
cannot do directly under the provisions
of the direct primary law. Tne purpose
of that provision in the law is good.
It la designed to prevent fraud through
collusion in ths nomination of candi
dates for office. It renders impossible
a combination among candidates for the
same office being formed to freeze out
other aspirants for the nomination,
when It is actually intended for one of
the group In the deal. Not being able
to resign, all candidates for the same
office nominated in the primary elec
tion must remain on the ticket."
Mr. Kellaher In a recent statement
intimated that since his name was
written on the ballot in the primary,
the nomination came to him unsolicited.
But the fact that he officially ac
cepted the nomination is taken to nul
lify any contention that may be urged
by him In disclaiming any desire for
the place. ' .
"The man who accepts a nomination
after his name has been written on the
ballot by his own act, ratifies that nom
ination and places himself In the same
position as the man who applied for
the nomination In the direct primary
nominating election," argued another
"The position of Mr. Kellaher In at

OREGOX WILL BE WELL REPRE
SENTED AT CHICAGO.
Invitation to Accompany Washington
and California. Delegations
Oregon will probably be represented
at the Roosevelt convention In Chicago,
August 6. by its full quota of five dele
gates. Dr. H. w. coe, oi tnis city, one
of the delegation, said yesterday that
all of the delegates, aa well as some of
the alternates, chosen at 'inursaays
mass mo tint? would ko from this state.
He is endeavoring to arrange it so the
members of the Oregon delegation will
go In the same party.
Oregon s delegates have received in
vltatlons to Jofn both the California
and the Washington delegations in
special cafr, but will probably make the
trip unattached. Charles t. uetncK,
secretary of the Republican State Cen
tral Committee in California, called on
Dr. Coe yesterday with a letter from
Governor Johnson suggesting that the
two delegations make the trip together,
but it was found Impracticable to ac
cept the invitation. The delegates from
Washington will start for the cpnven
tion city next Thursday.
It has not been decided when tne
delegates from this state will depart.
Bruce Dennis, ex-chairman of the Re
publican State Central Committee, who
was elected one of the delegates to
Chicago, left last night for his home at
La Grande. He will leave La Grande
next Wednesday for Chicago. Dr. Coe
and the other three delegates-probably
will leave about the same time, and, If
the arrangements can be made, will
Join Mr. Dennis at La Grande. Aside
from Dr. Coe and Mr. Dennis, the dele
gates are D. L. Povey, Multnomah; E.
Holmes. Wallowa, and J. Frank
Hughes, Marion. The alternates are:
R. J. Green, Union: Max Telford,
