TARIFF TO BE MAIN ISSUE
Democratic Presidential Nominee
Confident of Success bnt Some of
His- Friends Fear Bryan May
Yet Cause Trouble.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Aug. 3. Governor Wilson, ac
cording to those who have talked with
him, believes, as did every delegate at
the Baltimore convention, that this Is a
Democratic year, and that the voters In
November will overwhelmingly reject
both President Taft and Colonel Roose
velt, regardless of what manner of
campaign they may make. Personally,
Wilson has chosen the tariff as the
main issue for his campaign, and that
choice will be respected by the cam
But, at the very outset, this one
Issue Is causing; worry to some of the
ablest men in the Democratic party,
for the Democratic platform declared
In favor of free trade, and Governor
Wilson is personally a free trader. Not
many days ago the New York World,
perhaps the most Influential Demo
cratic paper, in the United States,
called upon Wilson to denounce the
tariff plank in the Baltimore platform
and to come out for a reasonable de
gree of protection. The World de
clared flatly that the vast majority of
Democrats no longer believe in free
trade, but wanted a reasonable amount
of protection, as evidenced by the
votes of some of the leading Democrats
In the Senate. The opinion voiced by
this newspaper is known to be the
opinion of a great many Democrats in
the Senate and House of Representa
tives, where protectionists from the
South are no longer objects of Interest.
Compromise May Be Made.
While Governor Wilson will not
abrogate the tariff plank, in all proba
bility he will BOften the hearts of
Democratic protectionists. It is assert
ed, by favoring some form of tariff
commission, thus adhering to the Taft
plan of revision schedule by schedule,
basing such revision on facts gathered
by some competent non-partisan body
This is not all that is desired by the
more earnest Democratic protectionists,
but it Is a compromise ground, and
mav prove popular.
The demonstrated unpopularity of
the prevailing Payne-AIdrich law, and
the fact that that law will remain In
operation throughout the campaign this
year, and the further fact that the Re
publican Senate declined to revise the
wool and cotton schedules In accord
ance with the findings of the Tariff
Board and even refused to make any
attempt at such revision will give the
Wilson managers their strongest tariff
argument in the campaign this Pall,
and Governor Wilson informs his call
ers that this omission on the part of
the Republicans will make for him the
best sort of campaign material.
Bryan May Turn on Wllioi.
But while Governor Wilson sees clear
sailing ahedd on the tariff issue, some
of his friends' fear he may jet experi
ence trouble with William J. Bryan
before the campaign has progressed
far. It will be recalled that at the
Baltimore convention Mr. Bryan made
a most vigorous assault upon Murphy
Of Tammany, Ryan and Belmont, and
other representatives of AVall street,
and did his utmost to read them out or
the Democratic party. He did succeed
in forcing the convention to decjare
itself to be progressive and opposed to
the domination of such men, and tne
victory for Bryan was a signal one.
But after the convention adjourned,
and leaders began to talk harmony.
Governor Wilson sent for Boss Murph,
and the Tammany chief was one of the
first visitors received at Seagirt. Then
also came Boss Nugent, of New Jersey,
who had been an out-and-out opponent
of Wilson, and then came word that tne
Ryan-Belmont Interests, notwithstand
ing Bryan's resolution at Baltimore,
were to support Wilson in his cam
naign. and that their support was wel
comed by the Governor. The relations
between Wilson and the Ryan-Belmont
element are not positively known; It may
be that Governor Wilson, in the Inter
est of harmony, is enlisting the sup
port of all Democrats. But if It is
later demonstrated that Wilson is de
pending largely upon these men to
carrv him through in New York and
the East, it is feared by the Governor s
friends that there will be another out
burst from Mr. Bryan which will only
stir up dissension in the Democratic
Bryan Ha" Nothing to Lof.
Bryan, of course, can continue his
warfare on Murphy and Ryan and Bel
mont for he has nothing to lose and
everything to gain. He wants to keep
. .. u- 1 Via wants to be
known as a great factor in his party.
and yet he Is relieved oi n
bility,. and, because of his independ
ence- is In a position to ma no muu..
trouble, if he determines upun -course.
, . ,
It has been explained several times
that Woodrow Wilson Is going to aban
don the West, and make his entire fight
in the East, confident that the South
will stay with him. This is not correct.
On the other hand, the Democratic
platform made a strong bid for West-
it riorlared in favor
ern suppun iir.. --
of sane and practical conservation as
against Fincnousm, n.nu ...
that Governor Wilson has hopes of
carrving-a large part-of the West in
November. Montana, Colorado and
Nevada he counts as certain: Idaho,
n-..himrtn and Oregon he believes are
easily debatable ground, with more
than an even cnance iui
victory if the third ticket is placed in
those states to divide the Republican
vote, and California is listed as a prob
able Wilson state if there is no let-up
in the Taft-Roosevelt fight now in
progress. And men close id vmu..
declare thai tnese bii.o n... V
terly contested as any state In the East,
notwithstanding their comparatively
slender vote in the Electoral College.
LOGAN SHOWS RESOURCES
Available Tonnage on East Side of
Willamette Being Scheduled.
O. B. Robbins, president of the Logan
Improvement Association, has prepared
and sent to Dan Kellalier, president ol
the East Side Business Men's Club, a
statistical report on the tonnage and
resources of the Logan district. in
Clackamas County, showing advantage
of that section. This reprtrt is part
of the general statistics which are be
ing gathered throughout the section ex
tending southeast to Wilhoit Springs,
with a view to securing an electric
railway to Portland. Mr. Robbins says
In his report that from the Logan dis
trict without railway facilities, there
are 14,575 tons handled yearly; 378
homes owning farms of 30 acres each;
11.300 acres of tillable land; 8233 acres
Of timber land and more than 220, 00,
000 feet of timber standing. Mr. Rob
"This is one of the most wealthy and
prosperous sections of Clackamas
County, with vest timber and dairying'
resources. The tonnatre figures are
large considering that we have no rail
way connection with Portland. We have
the most prosperous Grange in thn
state, which owns its own hall, and
has 130 active members. We have
churches and schools, and now want
electric railway connection with Port
land." There are now nine active improve
ment clubs organized in that territory,
all of which are collecting statistics
showing probable tonnage and re
sources, agricultural and timber, all of
which will be used to induce the con
struction of an electric railway.
Clubs were formed last night at
Viola and at Whilhoit Springs. Dan
Kellaher, president of the East Side
Business Men's Club, was present at
Wilhoit and outlined in a brief talk
what is proposed to secure electric
railway facilities for that district from
the East Side. Mr. Kellaher pointed
out that the Hill lines are coming in
on the East Side and that a public dock
will be built there.
"Your vast timber and other re
sources," said Mr. Kellaher, "can be
poured right through to the East Side
public docks when this electric line Is
built, as It will be in the near future.
The Hill lines will have a grand central
depot on the East Side. This territory
is the largest undeveloped section in,
the state, and it is worth your time
and energy to work for this electric
railway. We of the East Side Business
Men's Club will co-operate with your
clubs In every way possible in getting
this electric railway."
