"FRAUD" CRY HAILED
Republican Chairman Answers
Mr. Ackerson's Charges.
VOTERS ARE GIVEN FACTS
C. B. Moores Shows by "Confession'
In Munsejf's Paper Why Wail of
"Fake Convention" Was Tsed
- by T. K. to Flag Galleries.
PORTLAND, Oct. 25. Wo the Edi
tor.) A recent letter In your columns
from Mr. Ackerson, a delegate to tbe
Chicago convention, is the only thing
that has appeared lately in the press in
regard to the fake cry of fraud which
was made an excuse for the one-man
" convention that followed the adjourn
ment of the National Republican con
ventlon. Tbe analysis made by Sena
tor La Folletts's weekly; the speech of
Congressman J. Hampton Moore, of
Pennsylvania, incorporating a complete
analysis of the contests, made by one
of the antl-Taft delegates from that
state: the speech of Congressman Mon
dell. of Wyoming, on tbe contests; the
speech of Congressman Bartholdt, of
Missouri, and the exhaustive analysis
of all the contests Issued by the Na
tional Republican committee have so
completely riddled the hypocritical pre
tenses of the Bull Moosers in regard to
the contests, that they have become th
objects of ridicule everywhere, and are
no longer discussed as an issue by any
body.
Congressman Bartholdt, who was one
of the National committee, challenged
Governor Cummins to debate the hon
esty of the contest decisions. Theo
dore Roosevelt urged him not to accept.
Neither Roosevelt nor Cummins dared
to accept, apparently. They don't want
an open and honest discussion of the
question that all the people may be In
formed. They dare not submit their
cries of fraud to an analysis in open de-
' bate. It is easier f.o make a great
noise, and talk loudly about frauds and
thieves than it Is to prove their charges.
It is easier to steal the Republican
label for their electors in California,
and to try the panic game of political
thievery in a half dozen other states
than it is openly to debate a question
before the whole people wherein they
know they are certain to lose.
Law Shamefully Unfair.
We have in this state a shamefully
unfair law that required all the dele
gates to the Chicago convention to cast
their votes for Roosevelt when he
lacked 14,000 votes of having a major
ity. It fastened on us the old unit
rule that honest men have been fight
Ing in all the National conventions for
80 years. It is a law that robbed over
20,000 friends of President Taft, and
over 20,000 friends of Senator La Fol
lette of the right to have any voice in
the Chicago convention, and the same
men who indorse the thievery that robs
the Taft Republicans of California of
their right to vote In that state for
their choice for President, have the un
paralleled nerve to tell Oregon people
that men sent from Oregon to Chicago
wholly by the votes of the friends of
La Follette and Taft. went there simply
as puppets to do the bidding of Theo
dore Roosevelt, and at his behest tjo
override, if necessary, all constitutional
and parliamentary precedents. -
The only two men in the Oregon dele
gation who deliberately violated their
pledges in the Chicago convention were
the two who did not vote for either
Roosevelt or Borah, whom the voters
of Oregon Instructed them to vote for.
and these two violators of their solemn
pledges are the only two who are con
tinually talking about the dishonesty
of other people. They ought to be
driven out of politics in this state for
all time.
Root's Declsloa Upheld.
The decision of Senator Root that
delegates seated by the National com
mittee had the right to vote upon all
contests but their own is a decision
that has always been universally rec
ognized by all parliamentary bodies of
every party. It is a decision that not
. only has the sanction of all recognized
parliamentarians and manuals of par
liamentary law, but it is the only de
cision that could have been rendered
consistent with good morals and com
mon decency. It is a decision that
would have been supported by Roose
velt and all his supporters if conditions
had been reversed. A decision that no
one could vote on any question whose
seat was contested, would have been
a decision meaning that all anyone
' need do to capture a convention would
be to contest all the seats and take
absolute control of it. It was an ab
solutely dishonest contention from start
to finish, and the voters of Oregon
never instructed any delegate to stult
ify himself by engaging in any such
dishonest political subterfuge. Messrs.
Carey. Campbell,' Byrorf, Smith and Mc
Cusker are to be commended by all men
who believe in decent political methods
for refusing to do the bidding of poli
ticians of the Bill Fllnn and Dan
Hanna stripe In this matter.
The kupporters of Roosevelt contested
the seats of 238 delegates, but when
forced to vote upon these contests the
Roosevelt members of the National
committee voted unanimously to reject
164. contests. Their nerve deserted
them at the last moment.
The contests were confessedly fraud
ulent, but they would doubtless have
forced them through if they could have
controlled the National committee. The
whole scheme was exposed in an ar
ticle published in the Washington
Times. This is a daily paper owned by
Frank Munsey, who testified last week
before the Senatorial investigating
committee that he had personally con
tributed 1118,000 to the Roosevelt cam
paign fund. Munsey is a stockholder
in the steel trust and is the head of
the magazine trust. His magazines
have been going through the mails for
less than the cost of transmission. The
taxpayers have to pay his postage.
President Taft has prosecuted his steel
trust and has tried to so amend the
postal laws as to make him relieve the
taxpayers by paying his own postage.
This is his grievance and accounts for
his Bull Moose subscription of $118,000.
His paper the Washington Times In
its issue of June 9, 1912, commenting
on these fraudulent Roosevelt contests,
had this to say:
"For psychological effect as a move
in practical politics it was necessary
for the Roosevelt people to start con
tests on the early Taft selections In
order that a tabulation of delegate
strength could be put out that would
show Roosevelt holding a good hand.
In the game a table showing Taft ISO,
Roosevelt 19, contested none, would not
be very much calculated to inspire con
fidence; whereas one showing Taft 23,
Roosevelt 19. contested 127 looked very
different. That is the whole story of
the larger number of southern contests
that were started early in the game. It
was never expected that they would be
taken very neriously. They served a
useful purpose, and now the National
committee is deciding them in favor of
Taft in most cases without real di
vision." Trick Is Dishoaest.
Here Is a Bull Moose confession of a
scurvy and dishonest political trick,
engineered for the purpose of deceiv
ing the voters of the United States as
to the actual strength of Roosevelt in
the National convention. Mr. Roose
velt's agent in engineering this polit
ical trick, who managed ail his con
tests at Chicago, was Ormsby McHarg,
who was In Oregon In 1909 trying to
persuade Oregon members of the Legis
lature to violate their Statement No.
pledge and vote against the people1
choice for United States Senator. In
the final outcome It developed that
Roosevelt had practically abandoned
all but 72 of his contests, it was nec
essary to make a stand on this number
of contests in order to carry out bis
pretense of having a majority and even
these would not have given rum a ma
jority without the Cummins and La
Follette delegates, that would never
have gone to him. These 72 contested
cases were confined almost wholly to
Arizona, California, Texas and Wash
ington.
The Arizona case was so plain as not
to be worth discussion. The California
case involved two delegates and ove
these the loudest howl of all was made.
The call of tbe National committee has
asked that wherever possible delegates
should be chosen by districts. This was
manifestly the fairest plan, as it re
duced representation to the lowest pos.
slble unit and brought the choice closer
home to the people. After this call was
Issued. Governor Johnson, of California,
believing he could carry California,
convened the State Legislature and had
them pass a Taw giving every delegate
to the National convention to tne can
dldate for President who had a majority
in the state, however small. Under
this law tbe election was held. Taft
carried one Congressional District.' rep
resented by two delegates, and the Na
tional committee gave these two dele
gates to Taft and tbe other 24 dele
gates to Roosevelt. In the primaries
Roosevelt had 130,000 votes and Taft
and La Follette had 113,000 votes.
Johnson's law would not allow these
113.000 voters a single delegate. The
committee gave them two delegates
out of 26.
Aekeraoa la Answered.
Under an honest law they would
have had nearly half the delegates.
It is for allowing these 113,000 voters
two delegates that this paragon of po
litical virtue, Mr. Ackerson, says the
National convention was "dominated
by thieves, were the cards were
marked and the dice loaded, and hon
est delegates would not have an even
break." He is the same man who
loosely talks aoout this as "the crime
of the century," who was going to
raise the roof of the Chicago Coli
seum." and telegraphed Dixon that
Committeeman Williams was not to be
allowed to return to the state of Ore
gon. It is just such rant and fustian
as this, coming from utterly irrespon
sible sources, that has led many hon
est voters to believe that the contests
were dishonestly decided.
In Texas Cecil Lyon has for many
years been the political boss. Under
his domination the Republican vote
has decreased in that state from
167.000 in 1896 to 26.000 in 1912. Last
Spring in the Republican primaries in
99 counties of the 249 there were only
a little over 2000 Republican votes
cast, an average of 2Z to the county.
In these counties there was no party
organization and no primaries, but
Lyon came down to the state conven
tion with 99 proxies from these coun
ties. Where there was an actual Re
publican vote the Taft men .were in
the majority; The Taft men refused to
recognize these 99 fraudulent proxies.
and without them they had a clear
majority of the state convention, and
elected delegates to Chicago that the
National committee seated. This is
another case of "marked cards" and
loaded dice," and illustrates the
hypocrisy of the cry that the nomina
tion of Taft was tainted with fraud.
In Washington the whole contest
hinged on the vote in . King County,
of which Seattle is the county seat. In
OHEGOV WOMAN. MARRIED BY
EMPEROR'S . ROYAL COX- .
SENT, DIES AT
MACKSBIRG.
Mrs. Rosy Kraxberger.
AURORA. Or, Oct. 26. (Spe
cial.)' Mrs. Rosy Kraxberger,
one of the old residents of Macks
burg, died at the home of her
son last week.. The funeral was
held at the Macksburg Christ
Congregational German Lutheran ,
Church, the Rev. W. R. Morenx-
Oeser officiating.
Mrs. Kraxberger was born In
Axberg, Upper Austria, in 1840.
She was the mother of 14 chil
dren, eight of whom are now liv
ing at Macksburg. She came to
America In 1893 and settled at
Macksburg, where she has been
prominent in tbe affairs of the
community.
Before coming to America she
was three times granted an audience-
before Franz Joseph, the
Emperor of Austria. The first
time she was received was when
she desired a license to conduct
her father's business during his
long illness while she was still
under age. She had been refused
a license by the town, county and
provincial authorities, but carried
the case to the Emperor himself,
and after awaiting an audience
for eight days, she reached the
Emperor, and kneeling, . pleaded
her suit. Frans Joseph, instruct
ing her to rise, and taking her
by the hand, told her never to
bow the knee to any human be
ing, that Kings are only human
like all other people, and granted
her petition. On her return home,
the local officials refused to issue
the license for months and she
again went to Vienna, laid her
case again before the Emperor,
who immediately rebuked and
displaced the delinquent officials.
A few years later, when she
met her future husband, their
union was barred by the fact that
he was an officer in the Emper
or's army, as officers were not
allowed to marry. Again the un
conquerable little Austrian girl
appealed to the great monarch
and again her difficulties were
swept away, and they were mar
ried. The survivors are the husband,
seven sons and two daughters.
The sons are the Rev. William
Kraxberger, of Oregon City;
Franz Kraxberger, president of
the Oregon Rural Carriers' As
sociation; Charles Kraxberger, a
prominent farmer and bank di
rector, of Aurora, and Ferdinand.
Adolph. John and Otto. The
daughters are Mrs. Rosy Kummer

that county Taft delegates were elect
ed by tbe county executive commit-
tee. In the same way as Roosevelt and
La Follette delegates were named in
other counties of the state. The state
law provided for this method. After
the delegates had been thus elected,
the Roosevelt boss, a man named Mur
phlne. Issued a call for a primary. One
undred and thirty-seven memoers 01
the county committee, a clear major
ity, made affidavit that this call was
not authorized. Both the Taft and
La Follette leaders refused to recog
nize tbe call. In 30 precincts not a
single Republican vote was cast. The
Seattle papers, the day following this
soapbox primary, reported that 3000
votes were cast. As there was no
law governing the primary no one
knows how many were cast. The
total registration in Seatue is nearly
SO.000.
In Seotember another primary was
held in King County, at which the
Bull Moose cast only 886 votes and
the regular Republicans cast 21,334
votes, an. excess of over 2 to 1. This
illustrates the character of the so
called fraud in Wasnington.
Any honest man who will take trre
pains to read the analysis of all these
contests published by the National
Republican Committee In a ' pamphlet
of 64 pages will be convinced of the
utterly . fraudulent character oi tne
Bull Moose claims, and will understand
whv no Bull Moose has yet dared to
meet the challenge of the Republican
leaders for an open debate on tne
honesty of the decisions. In the Na
tional convention they prevented the
Taft managers from presenting their
case by violent and disorderly demon
strations. They never heard the tes
timony, and they absolutely refused to
allow it to be presented, through
riotous methods led by Bill Flynn on
the floor of the convention.
There has seldom been, in the whole
history of American politics, so Impu
dent and hypocritical a campaign of
pretense and humbug. Its success has
been based almost wholly upon a bra
zen display of sheer Impudence, that
has utterly deceived hundreds of
thousands of the honest voters of the
country. CHAS. B. MOORES,
Chairman Republican State Central
Committee.

FAIR IS 11 BIG SUCCESS
MANX VISITORS ATTRACTKI) TO
CANYON CITY.
Daring Riding of AVild Horses and
Mules Are Spectacular Feat
ures of Show.
CANTON CITT. Or., Oct. 26. (Spe
cial.) The Fifth Eastern Oregon
District Agricultural Society closed a
very successful fair October 12, which
has been made possible by the energetic
efforts of H. Lr Kuhl, secretary of the
society.
- The exhibits in all departments were
fine, and this particularly applies to
the showing of fruits and vegetables.
No better exhibit of apples, according
to visitors, has been seen.
In the matter of fancy sheep. Emmet
Cochran, of Monument, took most of
the prizes.
The fair began on Tuesday and lasted
until Saturday, and on each day in the
afternoon, there were races represented
by local and visiting horses.
The crowd appeared to enjoy this
part of the programme. This year the
wild west features enlivened the last
three days of the fair by the attend
ance of John Spain, of Union, Round
Up champion rough rider, 1911, with
Ben Corbett, the famous hippodrome
rider, fancy roper and all around rough
rider.
John Spain, despite the loss of his
right hand, gave an exhibition of rough
riding on an outlaw and narrowly es
caped being badly hurt, through the
animal falling, turning a complete
somersault. Spain was senseless for
nearly five minutes, but by that time,
was on his feet and laughing. The
bucking contest was decided as fol
lows: Ben Corbett, first; Ace Carey,
second.
- One of Corbett's most interesting
stunts was the riding of a mule bare
back and his hippodrome work, in
which he circled the track standing,
at full speed, on two horses, jumping
two hurdles at the end.
John Spain, assisted by Ben Corbett,
Zlbe Morse, Jim Green, and other riders
and bronco-busters, gave a wild west
show, much to the delight and enter
tainment of a large crowd at the fair
grounds.
The meeting thla year was a finan
cial success as well as .otherwise, and
seems to be growing in popularity
every year. One particular feature
was the noticeable attendance of peo
ple from outside points and from Eastr
ern states.
