FIVE PARTIES PUT
APPEAL TO VOTERS
Progressive Strength Source
of Worry to Idaho Leaders
in Coming Election.
BRADY OPENS CAMPAIGN
Roosevelt 'Expected, to Aid Bull
Moosers, While Republicans
Rely Upon Borah to Help
Carry state Ticket.
BOISE, Idaho, Oct. 3. (Special.)
With & total of 54 candidates In the
field, representing: five different . polit
ical parties, the general election cam
paign for this state opened this week.
As the election is but a month off,
It gives promise of being: one of in
tense interest, with the probability of
& mixed result when the final canvass
of the vote is made. There is reason
to believe that there will be new sur
prises as the result of the election this
year as compared to other elections,
principally because there are five in
stead of four parties in the field and
because one of them, the Progressive,
has taken some strength from the two
dominant ones, the Republican and
Parties Open Headquarters.
The Republican and Democratic state
central committees have opened their
headquarters in Boise. The Progres
sive party opened headquarters at Cald
well. . .
Among leaders of all parties the real
question is as to the strength of the
Progressive party. Because this party
cast but approximately 2000 votes at
the recent primary election, it is
claimed by Republicans and Democrats
the Bull Moosers are losing their
strength and that they will fall far
below their vote of two years ago in
November of this year. Roosevelt then
polled 25.621 votes and Martin, for Gov
ernor, polled 24,325.
The state ticket polled about 15,000
votes. Wilson carried the state by a
plurality of 1111, receiving a vote of
S3. 921. The real strength of the Repub
lican party was shown on the vote cast
tor state candidates other than for
Governor, which ran about 41,000.
Progressives' Vote Light.
At the recent primary election the
Republican strength, shown in the vote
cast for Governor, was 37,125." The
Democratic strength on the same basis
was 14.843. while the vote for Hugh E.
McElroy, Progressive candidate for
, Governor, was 1762. It is on this show
ing Republicans and Democrats say the
Progressive vote is falling off. The
Progressives, answer that, having no
contests at the primary election, their
strength was not shown and that at the
coming election they will cast a heavier
vote than two years ago.
The "big guns" of all three parties
are now following itineraries and the
campaign is on in full swing. United
States Senator James H. Brady, re
nominated, returned Thursday to the
state from Washington, and will assist
in his own election and the election of.
the state ticket. He was given a re
ception at his home city, Pocatello, on
his arrival, and greeted with an ova
tion all over the southern part of the
state where he aDoeared.
Hawley Begins Campaign.
Ex-Governor James It. Hawley,
Democratic candidate for United States
Senator, is actively engaged in his
campaign and is now covering - an
itinerary in Northern Idaho. It is gen
erally believed by those who have fol
lowed politics in this state that the
race between Hawley and Brady will
be close. Paul Clagstone is the Pro
gressive candidate for United States
Senator and will make a strenuous
fight for election.
Other candidates stumping the state
are Governor Haines, Republican, seek
ing re-election, and Hugh E. McElroy,
Progressive, his opponent; Attorney
General J. H. Peterson, Republican; C.
O. Broxpn, Progressive candidate for
Ftate Treasurer; Moses Alexander,
Democratic candidate for Governor.
Other .candidates are expected to take
the stump within a short time.
The Republican cemmittee is build
ing on assistance from Senator Borah,
who may he induced to come to Idaho
and stump the state. The Progressives
are endeavoring to secure the services
of National leaders, and there are re
ports that Roosevelt may be able to
visit Idaho later on behalf of the state
WAR'S ENORMITY IS TOLD
Sister Writes Albany Woman or
Many Dangers Encountered.
ALBANY, Or.. Oct. 3. (Special.)
That the people of this country have
no idea of the enormity and serious
ness of the situation in Europe, is a
part of the message received this week
by Mrs. R. H. Kaltz, of Albany, from
her sister, Mrs. Herbert Wallace, of
Portland, who has been in Europe since
the war' started.
Mrs. Wallace and her husband who
is a Portland railroad man, went to
Europe several months ago, Mr. Wal
lace having business of importance, to
attend to there. When the situation
became serious, the Wallaces fled from
the war zone to neutral Spain, where
they remained until a short time ago,
when they made their way through
France, crossing the English Channel
Upon their arrival in England, they
immediately secured passage on one
of the steamships of the Allen line.
They are now en route to the. United
States and expect to arrive in Port
land within the next two weeks.
While in Paris, Mr. and lira. Wal
lace were given a real taste of the
war, when a bomb was dropped from
a German dirigible upon the roof of
their hotel, damaging the roof con
siderably. . Fortunately nobody was in
jured, writes Mrs. Wallace.
LOGGING BUNKS ORDERED
Labor Commissioner Hoff Gives
Companies Vntil January to Act.
SALEM. Or., Oct. 3. (Special.) La-or-
Commissioner Hoff announced to
day that he had notified logging com
panies that they must install logging
'bunks on cars by January 1. In his
letter Mr. Hoff says:
"Investigations havings shown that
the majority of the accidents occurring
during the unloading of cars can' be
avoided, it becomes the duty of this
department, under the authority of
tlie employers' liability act, which di
rects this office to compel the adop
tion of all reasonable - and possible
safeguards by the employers for . the
proper protection of the lives . and
limbs of employes, to enforce the
adoption of such remedies as will bring
about the desired results."
In a pamphlet mailed the companies
are descriptions of various bunks, all
of which are operated from the oppo
site side of the cars from which the
logs are dumped. Mr. Hoff says the
adoption of the safeguards will not
only prevent accidents to employes,
but will extend the life limit of cars.

HOP FIELDS LARGER
Acreage Increased and Many
Improvements Are Made.
PICKERS BLOCK TRAFFIC
Crowds on Outing Bent Throng
Yards, While Owners Rush Dry
ers and Barns to House Crop
Taken Early From Vines.
BUENA VISTA, Or., Oct 3. (Spe
cial.) The hop industry in the Luckla
mute Valley, while it experienced a
setback in the small yield this season.
i. " z s
Is undergoing many improvements, as
shown by a recent survey of the hop
fields. The quantity of hops obtained
from the yards this year was some
what less than last year, and last sea
son's yield was much belon the aver
age. The decrease of the present sea
son, however. Is offset by the better
grade of hops and the prospects for
a high price for the entire crop.
From early Spring the hopgrowers in
several districts of Polk County saw
indications of a good year in spite of
the fact that there was a lighter yield
in view, and at once began remodeling
some of the old hophouses and build
ing new ones.
Ktw Fields Planted.
Within a radius of five miles from
Buena Vista there is a large acreage
of hops. The county is now represented
by new acreages in the following dis
tricts: Airlle, Falls City, Suver. Mon
mouth, Buena Vista. Dallas, Bridgeport
and Rickreall, besides a large acreage
in the vicinity of Independence. With
a normal crop it is evident that the
general flgur.es for the county will
commence to grow.
A warm Spring gave the hop vines
an excellent start for the season's
growth and much attention was given
to cultivation, to make sure that the
soil was left in a level condition in
order to retain the moisture during the
hot weather. Believing that a long
period of warm weather during-the
Summer months meant a wet and rainy
Fall for the picking - season, many of
the growers began to enlarge their
drying capacity and arrange for pick
ers, in order that the crop might be
handled in less time than usual. In
case of rain. New . roofs took the
places of old ones, and where there was
thought to be any possible necessity
new drying houses were erected. This
preparation for the Fall hop harvest
was made - while the farmers were
storing away their Winter's supply of
Throughout the development period
of the hops, precautions were taken
concerning the proper kind of spray
and the right amount of it at the
The continuous warm weather during
the early Summer proved to be what
was needed, but unusual length to the
dry spell brought the hops to a rapid
maturity. A few yards began picking
on the last week in August, while the
greater number began operations on
September 1. At no time during the
season was any fear exercised concern
ing shortage of pickers. In fact, there
was an oversupply in some , of the
districts shortly after the picking com

tricts. They set their tents In most
cases and waited to find employment.
The influx of willing workers was
steady, continuing for several lays. In
bound trains were crowded with pick
ers and occasionally the regular pas
senger service was delayed owing to
the specials bringing pickers to their
place of work. 'Most of the crews who
came in seeking a place to pick hops
were from Portland. It was estimated
that 15,000 persons harvested the crop
In the vicinities of Independence and
Buena Vista, along the Willamette and
- Although the picking season was
somewhat short this year, pickers
made good wages and left the fields
well paid for the time spent there. The
greatest number of boxes picked by
one person in any one day In Polk
County Is said to have been 18. The
price paid was 60 cents a box.
Growers now feel confident that with
the successful harvest of the hops al
ready attained, and a good price in
view, there will be no serious loss felt
directly to the industry. The opinion
is commonly expressed that the yield
for the state will not exceed 110,000
bales. Little or no activity in the
market is evident but the crop is being
held for a high figure.
