SALEM, Or., Aug. 24. (Special.)
Some friction as to the apparently
momentous question of -whether a
county and state ticket should be
placed in the field marked a meeting
of some' of the leaders of the Roosevelt
Progressive party here to-day. The
meeting was in the shape of a com
mitttee gathering and about 30 at
tended from Salem and some outside
precincts. J. Frank Hughes, who was
a delegate to the National convention,
was named as chairman of the County
Central Committee, and Paul Wallace
as county committeeman. Both are
When the question of a county ticket
came up opposition immediately de
veloped. William M. Cherrington and
Charles H. Jones both expressed op
position to a plan, to place a county
ticket in the field. Fear that nomina
tion of a county ticket would engender
enmities which would be damaging
to the prospects of the National ticket
were expressed, and it was asserted
that many of the present candidates
are Roosevelt Progressives, who were
nominated through the assistance of
the men attending the meeting today,
and that it would be unfair to place a
ticket in the field against them.
. L. H. McMahan protested against the
party being considered as nothing else
than Theodore Roosevelt, saying that
the Impression had got abroad that
should Roosevelt die tomorrow the
party would fade away and for this
reason he expressed himself aa in
favor of nominating candidates on the
Roosevelt Progressive ticket for those
offices, where it is now believed that
the present candidates would be unfit
to be elected. Some of the speakers at
the meeting expressed personal disap
proval of Roosevelt, but said they be
lieved In the party.
! In consequence of this apparent split
la personal opinions it was decided to
put the decision up to a mass meet
ing that is being arranged for. The
chairman was instructed to select a
committee of "five to work toward
bringing Roosevelt to Salem when he
visits Portland. -
The mass meeting will be held
shortly after that time If Roosevelt is
persuaded to come here.
CLARK COUNTY TICKET OFF
Progressives Will Not Contest With
Friends for Places.
VANCOUVER. Wash.. Aug. 14. (Spe
cial.) No ticket will be put in the
field by the Clark County Roosevelt
Progressive party this year. This ac
tion was decided at a convention held
In the County Courthouse thla after
noon, having been called on 24 hours'
notice. Two spoke in favor of placing
a. county ticket, and a doxen against it,
and when the final vote was taken, but
sne vote was cast for a county ticket.
Charles W. Hall was chairman of the
meeting and Frederick W. Bier ws se
lected secretary, with William C. Bates,
assistant. James P. Stapleton. father of
the Roosevelt Progressive party in thi
county, made a strong speech, in which
he discouraged having the Republican
party yet further split by the nomina
tion of Roosevelt Progressives. Mr.
Beeks. chairman of the state central
committee, was late in arriving. It
was decided to hold a mass convention
at the courthouse next Wednesday, to
Indorse certain of the candidates who
may be Roosevelt Progressives, and
thus lend their support to them.
Victor H. Limber, an undertaker, can
didate for County Coroner, said it would
be unfair to many of the candidates
to have another ticket entered at this
time, so late in the campaign. Ar
rangements will be made Wedenesday

CORVALLIS. Or, Aug. 24. (Special.)
A mass meeting of ten voters to or
ganize the Roosevelt Progressive party
In Benton County was held here this
afternoon. Rev. B. F. Totten was elect
ed chairman of the county central com
mittee with power to appoint commit
teemen from each precinct. Gus Logs
den and Professor W. L. Peavy were
appointed delegates to the state con
vention. All the speeches opposed the
naming of state and county tickets by
the new party and the delegates were
Instructed to favor county option in the
matter of putting out tickets.
