PROGRESSIVES PLAN MEETING
State Central Committee to Get Ac
tive After Xationa Session.
George F. Rodgers, of Salem, chair
man of the recent Progressive party
convention, will Issue an official call
in a few days for a meeting of the
State Central Committee of the new
party organization in Portland. The
date for the meeting of the commit
tee has not been fixed definitely but
will be determined by. Mr. Rodgers.
It will be held as soon as convenient,
following the adjournment of the
party's National convention, which will
open its sessions in Chicago Monday.
The call for the committee meeting
has been drafted by L. M Lepper, sec
retary of the third party, and forward
ed to Mr. Rodgers for his official sanc
tion and signature. The Portland con
vention adopted resolutions providing
for a State Central Committee 'to con
sist of one member from each county.
The resolutions recommended that the
Roosevelt supporters in every county
proceed immediately to effect county
organizations and elect from their
number a member of the State Central
Committee. This committee, when it
assembles in Portland, will select a
state chairman and secretary and desig
nate an executive committee by which
the RooseVelt campaign in Oregon will
Organization of the third party move
ment In the different counties has not
made much headway since the state
convention. It is understood the mem
bers of the Bull Moose party, however,
in Jackson and Union counties have
effected county organizations. Secre
tary Lepper is of the opinion that the
third party adherents in most of the
counties are purposely deferring the
organization -work until it has been de
cided when the state committee will be
"In addition to naming a date for
the meeting of the state committee, the
call will suggest the organization of
Progressive clubs throughout the
state," said Mr. Lepper yesterday. "It
is believed that the work of organiz
ing the new party can best be pro
moted by forming clubs in the differ
ent communities. The plan is to have
the state committee meet just as soon
after the Chicago convention as pos
sible and prepare for the aggressive
campaign that is contemplated by the
third party for Roosevelt in this state."
COE ABSENT FROM EXERCISES
Oregon Not Represented Whent Taft
Oregon was not officially represent
ed at Washington Thursday when
President Taft was formally notified
by a committee, headed by United
States Senator Root, that he had re
ceived the Republican nomination for
President? At the very minute the ex
ercises were taking place. Oregon's
representative on the oommittee. Dr.
H. W. Coe, of Portland, was speeding
eastward in a transcontinental train.
But his destination was not. the Na
tional capital. He was en route to
Chicago as a delegate to the National
Progressive party convention that will
be assembled in that city Monday.
At the Reputelroan convention at Chi
cago, six weeks ago. Dr. Coo was designated-
by the Oregon delegation as
the representative from this, state, to
serve on the committee that was pro
vided to notify the President of his
nomination. But Dr. Coe. after the
convention- had finished its work, re
solved fully not to officiate on the
committee. He did not leave Portland
until Tuesday night, then with no in
tention of going to Washington. Be
sides, it would have been impossible
for him to reach Washington In time
for the formal notification exercises.
It was his plan to arrive in Chicago
early today and sit as a member of the
committee on credentials of the third
party convention. This committee will
meet at noon today to pass on the
vredentials of the delegates.

F. v. Carter, of Jackson County, Re
publican nominee for Presidential
Elector, in' a letter to the Multnomah
County Republican Central committee,
has declared that if elected in Novem
ber he will vote for Taft and Sherman
In the Electoral College. In plain
words. Mr. Carter asserts that if he
were not in sympathy with the party
which gave mm tne nomination ne
would lose no time in withdrawing as
Its nomine and acquainting the voters
with his position. .

committee, "my vote will be cast for

' "If my sympathies were with. Colonel
Roosevelt and his third-party move

nees and ally myself openly with

one of the electors, designated as a
Republican, and then. If successful,
cast his vote for Roosevelt?
"Surely the Colonel's slogan, 'Thou
shalt not steal,' is applicable here and

Mr. Carter and McKlnley Mitchell
are the only Republican nominees for
Presidential Elector who have replied
officially to the committee's letter re
questing them to define their position
as to the Republican National ticket.
The other three nominees are William
Hanley, of Harney; M. J. MacMahon
and Dan Kellaher, of Multnomah. Mr.
Kellaher, who received the Republican
nomination in the April primary elec
tion, was also nominated for the same
office at the recent third-party con
vention held in Portland.
Ever since the convention Mr. Kella
her has declined to commit himself or
to indicate in any way whether he
will support Taft or Roosevelt. He
was at Wllhoit Springs yesterday,
where, .It is understood, he made pre
liminary arrangements for organizing

TELEPHONE GIRL SWITCHES
Man Who "Beat" Board Bill Arrest

VANCOUVER, Wash- Aug. 3. (Spe
cial.) Thinking that the charge "beat
ing" is synonymous with "assaulting,"
when a hotelkeeper is the objective, a
telephone operator between here and
South Bend, Wash., today unconsci
ously caused the arrest of C. E. Hinkle
on a felonious charge, instead of a mis
demeanor. C. E. Hinkle, 28 years old, was In
South Bend, and it was charged that
he "beat" a hotelkeeper and was sup
posed to be on a train going to Port
land. Sheriff Stephens of South Bend,
telephoned to Sheriff Cresap, of Clark
County, telling him to arrest Hinkle, if
possible, and hold him. The wires
were noisy, so an operator relayed the

Your Child's Health
Your First Thought
If you have children, naturally your
first thoughts are for their health. Tou
certainly want them to develop strong,
healthy constitutions. .The most care
ful attention must be given when chil
dren show the first symptoms of the
many common ailments. Perhaps they
ate weakly and thin, or grow too fast,
thus sacrificing strength. These and
other apparently minor ailments may be
the. forerunner to a weak constitution
for life. . ' , ,
Such children ned Jayne's Tonio
Vermifuge, which is essentially a chil
dren's tonic. First of all, it will proper
ly care for the child's stomach. It will
also improve the appetite and will add
strength to "the other organs of the
body. In cases of thin or impure blood-,
it increases the number of red cor
puscles enabling the enriched blood to
keep the body healthy and strong. . -
Among the most common ailments
that .children develop Is that of a dis
ordered stomach, leading to an Im
paired digestion. In many cases this
trouble Is due to parasites -in the In
testinal tract. To correct such trouble,
Jayne's Tonic Vermifuge is unsurpassed.
For more than eighty, years millions
of children have been restored to
health through the use of this tonio.
Insist upon Jayne's; accept no other.

Trained Nurses to Demonstrate

Are to Be Offered.
Proof of the favorable reception of
the new department of an "Exposition
of Eugenics" at the State Fair at Salem
September 2-7 is shown by the fact
that 1500 has been appropriated by the
State Fair Board to cover the premiums
and expenses connected with it.
In this eugenic department children
will be shown, varying in age from six
months to four years, and prizes
awarded for physical perfection rather
than doll-like beauty. Certain medical
standards of weight and measurement
will be used.
Comparison to perfection will be fig
ured on a percentage basis. The various
tests and measurements will be made
by women physicians, who will at the
same time point out to parents any
defects or good points in the constitu
tion of the child.

Mothers' Congress and Parent Teach
