BULL MOOSE GOAT'
FOR MEDFORD HEN
Jackson County Republicans
Believe New Party Aims to
TOWN RIVALRY IS CAUSE
Main Stake Played for Is Office of
County Judge Medford
Dailies' Attitude Arouses
GOLD HILL. Or, Aug. 3. (Special.)
Was the Bull Moose made .to rear his
antlers In Jackson County merely to
serve a local political purpose?
There are many who are inclined to
the affirmative. The formation at
Medford recently or a Jackson County
Progressive party, committed to the
somewhat indefinite policies of Theo
dore Roosevelt, is regarded by local
political wiseacres as the nrst move in
a well-formulated plot that, if it works
smoothly, will Insure the success of
the Democratic County ticket at the
polls In November. In fact, there are
thoe who maintain that, while some
of those prominently identified with
the formation of the new party are not
aware of the same that Is being played,
the forces that really inspired the bel
low of the Bull Moose in Jackson
C'ountv are of Democratic origin.
It 13 maintained that in case the
Roosevelt party puts a full county tic
ket in the field as proposed, the elec
tion of the Democratic candidate to the
most coveted and Important county of
fice, that of County Judge, will be
practically assured by the resultant
split In the ranks of the Republicans,
while without a third party candidate
the election of the Republican primary
nominee Is regarded as certain.
Color is lent to the suspicion that
the Bull Moose party, as organized at
Medford, was simply and solely devised
and intended to play the part of the
bull in the china-shop of Jackson
County politics, by the fact that the
Medford Sun. which was. up to and
a short time after the Chicago conven
tion, a stanch and outspoken Taft pa
per Is now decidedly Teddyesque in its
editorial leanings. It is apparent that
in case the Bull Moose teeth sown at
the Medford assembly should, as an
ticipated, sprout and bring forth a full
crop of candidates for county office,
the Sun will shine benignly for their
fruition as winners at the November
harvest of votes.
wpaper' Attitude Explained.
The other Medford dally, the Mail
Tribune from indications already plain,
tinder the guise of political indepen
dence, will root up the editorial vine
yard in great shape for Woodrow A 11
on, and most of the Democratic can
didates for county office, supporting a
few Republicans, perhaps, to make its
"independence" resemble the bona fide
The probable reason for these op
posing editorial attitudes of the two
Medford dailies, which are printed in
the same building from the same press,
and It is suspected are under one own
ership, becomes apparent when it is
known that by this show of antago
nism they can best serve an end mutu
ally desired, the election of a Med
ford man to the office of County Judge. ,
It Is a regrettable but well-established
fact that the interurban strife
between these two eternal civic rivals,
Medford and Ashland, the two largest
towns in Jackson County, is always an
important and often a determining fac
tor in Jackson County politics. . The
rivalry between these cities for repre
sensation on the County Board is a
settled issue, and neither town is ever
satisfied to have the other possess a
majority in that body. At the present
time the construction of a bridge on
Main street in Medford, which the
County Board proposed should be paid
for in part with county money, is held
up by an injunction brought by an
Ashland man, and feeling is very bit
ter between the two cities.
Until two years ago the County
Board had been for several terms a
distinctly pro-Ashland body, and it
was largely the charge of Ashland fa
voritism that four years ago defeated
Dunn, an Ashland man who was the
Republican candidate for re-election to
the County Judgeship. Neil, a Demo
crat, who was elected, largely by Med
ford votes and influence, retires this
year and now Dunn is again the Re
publican candidate, having been nomi
nated over Merrick, the Medford as
pirant, by a big majority at the pri
maries in April.
Ton Yelle'a Chances Bright.
Toil Velle. of Medford. Is the Demo
cratic nominee for County Judge, and
It was not until the new Hull Moose
party rushed ir.to the arena thut it
was thought that he had the faintest
show of being elected. However, with
a third candidate in the field, and that
candidate a member of the Roosevelt
schism of the Republican party, whose
every vote will mean one vote less for
Dunn, avowedly a Taft Republican, it
begins to look as though, the Medford
candidate. Tou Velle, with the solid
Democratic vote behind him, will be
an easy winner over Dunn, of Ash
land, the Bull Moose nominee running
third In the humble role of the "goat,"
who shall make this consummation
This Is the way It looks to men who
for years have been as familiar with
Jackson County politics as a child is
with its building blocks. The Jackson
'County Bull Moose seems to be con
structed, horn. hide, hoof and tail, of
e Medford desire to have a Medford
man. and that man a Democrat, elected
over Dunn, of Ashland, who will, his
friends assert, make his campaign for
election, as he did for nomination, as
a regular Republican.

HAINES LOSES 154
Clagstone Still Dangerous in
Idaho Governor's Race.
OFFICIAL CANVASS AWAITS
Ex-Speaker of State Legislature
Gains In Authentic Count of
Canyon County Opponent
Leads by 600 Still.
BOISE. Idaho, Aug. 3. (Special.)
Having been able to show a substan
tial gain of a majority of 154 votes
over John M. Haines in Canyon County,
as the result of the official count
made tonight, Paul Clagstone, who is
pushing Haines hard for the Repub
lican Gubernatorial nomination, proved
that he is still a dangerous contender
for the nomination, and that he may be
the strong favorite should it develop
that a recount is absolutely necessary.
The question of the legal Republican
nominee for Governor as the result of
the primaries held in this state July
30, Is just as unsettled today as it
Canyon Vote Light.
The official count in Canyon County
shows that there was a total vote of
3470, which is comparatively light.
John T. Morrison, who is down and out
In the race, having run third, carried
the county over Haines by a majority
of 675. Clagstone leads Haines with
a total majority of 173. Ben F. Tweedy
was fourth in the race.
The Canyon County returns verify
the claim of the Clagstone people, that
their candidate will prove to be much
stronger than any of the other three
candidates on second choice, for he re
ceived 133 second-choice votes there
to 68 for Morrison and 43 for Haines.
Votes Give Surprises.
One of the many surprises of the
election was the fact Haines carried
the county precInctB in Twin Falls
County and Clagstone carried the city.
This is the reverse order from all other
counties heard from. Haines was
stronger in the cities than either Mor
rison or Clagstone. but Clagstone was
stronger in the county precincts than
was Morrison, and many of the county
precincts are still to be heard from.
Haines has not increased his lead of
600 over Clagstone. The official can
vass of the vote in various counties
will be made Monday and reports of
the total vote will immediately be
made to the Secretary of State. Until
he canvasses the vote the nominee will

HUCKLEBERRIES ARE RIPE
WALLOWA COUNTY GATHERS IX
1 000 GALLON'S A DAY.
Men, Women and Children Hike to
Timber to Gather Raw Material
for Succulent Berry Pie.
ENTERPRISE, Or. Aug. 3. (Spe
cial.) One thousand gallons of huckle
berries have been gathered in the
woods of Wallowa County every day
for the last week or so, it is estimated.
Fully 300 persons of all ages have been
in the timber, and their pick will av
erage more than three gallons each.
The retail price, which started at
about 75 cents, has fallen materially
and, if the berry gatherers do not stop
the flood, it is expected they will be
selling at 25 cents a gallon. But there
are Indications that the production will
let up shortly, as the harvest fields are
calling the men and boys.
The huckleberries grow wild In the
timber all over the county. They ripen
first in the valley., at the lower alti
tudes, but those on the hills follow
soon afterward. The abundance of
grass this year has kept sheep from
stripping the bushes, and the rains and
warm weather have developed the
fruit in abundance everywhere.
The Promise district always has been
a great producer of the berries. J. K.
Carper and his sons gather them by
the wagonload, ship them to Wallowa
and thence to other towns in the lower
country. The Flora and Paradise dis
tricts gather all they want, and many
to spare, as do Lost Prairie, Troy,
Grouse and Eden, wherever there is a
fringe of woodland.
Kot only do residents of these farm
ing districts turn the berry season into
a holiday period, but the residents of
the towns along the railroad flock to
the forests for the fruit. The berries
have been ripening on Alder Slope and
elsewhere along the base of the Wal
lowa mountains, and parties of men,
women and children may be seen any
day going out from Enterprise, Joseph,
Lostine and Wallowa to gather them.
The Wallowa County huckleberries
differ from those grown in the East in
several particulars. They do not show
quite so blue a color, and their flavor
is far more piquant, with a tendency to
tartness. They are put up in a score
of ways, cooked and canned, made into
cold jam, wirie and jelly. They give
a rare flavor and variety to the fruit
resources of the county.
Roadhouse Man Convicted.
EUGENE, Or., Aug.- 3. (Special.)
George Lambert, who has been con
ducting a small roadhouse on the high
way between Eugene and Springfield,
was convicted last evening by a jury
on the charge of violating the local
option law. The case was closely con
tested and nearly the whole day con
sumed in the taking of evidence. Lam
bert will be. sentenced Monday.
It Is not a simple matter to sell 23
carloads of pianos in addition to the

First of all, we're going to sell these
pianos at the lowest possible prices;
secondly, we are going to make terms
of payment extremely easy (some only
1.25 a week), and third, we're going
to furnish with each one of these in
mants a term of free music lessons. A

No advertisement just like this has ever
been printed in Portland No bargains
such as this advertisement tells about have
ever been offered in Portland.
In sixty days this store has gained a wonderful following. It
numbers among its friends and regular patrons thousands of thrifty
people Who know good goods and recognize low prices at sight.
They respond to our announcements like magic, and they buy
quickly, freely because the values are always there, and there is
no resisting them.
MONDAY we try a new and unique plan.
It is customary to buy a page or two of newspaper space and fill it
up with scores of bargain items. Everybody is doing it that way
but today we will do it differently.
This is the greatest bargain offering of them all but
not a detail or a price. You must come to the store,
find the good things if you want a share, and take
our word for it, they are worth coming for.
On Monday there will be displayed in prominent locations in this
store, marked with a large red circular card, a dozen very extra
ordinary values in seasonable, desirable goods (remember this
is a new store.) We are not going to tell you a word about them
here not a word.
Each and every one will be a standard article and
priced so low that the lucky buyers may be con
gratulated in advance.
We again say this to be the greatest bargain adver
tisement in this paper today and not a detail or price.
Are you curious enough to see whether we mean business or not?
We do mean business, and we are going to do business, for there
are plenty of shrewd shoppers who will not overlook the signifi
cance of this unique idea.
Gome early MONDAY look for the red sign markers.
SEASIDE DANGERS VIE
WALTZ CONTESTS AT BEACH
Terpslchorean Artists Succumb to
Ocean Kesort Natives "Bull Dog
Trot" Late Sensation.
SEASIDE. Or., Aug. S. (Special.)
Seaside's Midsummer sensation is over
the wait contests that are being con
ducted in a local hall. Portland society
belles and beaux who have hitherto
considered themselves finished to the
last degree in the art of Terpsichore
are being vanquished by local residents,
waltzing after a plan foreign to Port
landers, who are having difficulty in
concealing their disappointment and
chagrin from the triumphant Seaslders.
Summer visitors to Seaside have be
come Interested in the rivalry mani
fested over the contest, and have been
prominent In the nightly preliminaries
that have been held for the purpose
of selecting couples qualified for the
final event. '
Although the Integrity of the judges
Is vouched for, several complaints have
been heard to the effect that mere, man
is unable to be impartial to beauty, and,
that in deciding, a soft-hearted judge
is totally unable to refuse pretty
girl a place among the contestants,
which sometimes occurs to the disad
vantage of more deserving girls not
so naturally gifted.
The disappointment of Portlanders
has resulted not so much from their
Inability to execute the ordinary waltz
figures in a creditable manner, but
rather from their lack of proficiency
in the added kicks and wiggles which
are considered so essential- to the
dance. Several who were disqualified
for casting a shoe or losing equilib
rium have been reinstated recently.
Embellishments to the dance brought
here from the East fall to enliven trie
competition, some of the seashore de
velopments being so far advanced that
Easterners have retired after the first
round. Seaside hops, skips and Jumps,
together with the local development
of the most suitable accompanying re
ciprocating motion have reduced finish
ing school cuts and figures to the Colo
rado maduro class.
A favorite figure that is being per
fected is the bulldog trot, an offspring
of the famous "no-clasp waltz," where
all the clinging is done by means of
the teeth, leaving the hands free to
execute geometrical figures and de
signs in the air.
Then there is the "pickpocket turn
over," by some called "the dip's de
light." For the apparent safety of the
watch and chain partners are held an
extra foot to the right in this dance.
