OIIEGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash-Ing-tou.
June 26. The Administration is
ondeavoring to appoint a. Democratic
Collector of Customs for the State of
Washington by July 1, but finds itself
much embarrassed by the multiplicity
of candidates and conflict of indorsers,
and it is not certain the contest can

Kepresentati vo Dill, of Spokane, the
only Democrat in the "Washington dele
gation, left for home today after mak
ing a hard fight for Cieorge E. Stone,
ex-Sheriff of Spokane County. Dill
argued it was customary to grive the"
Kast Side the Collector of Customs if
the West Side had the Collector of In
ternal Revenue, arid vice versa, and, a
"West Side Democrat having been ap
pointed Collector of Internal Revenue,
he insists an East Side Democrat should
get the customs job, which is the big
firest plum remaining to be given out in
Washington. Mr. Dill feels reasonably
confident that Stone will be appointed.
Mr. Todd Pleadn Own Cause.
Hugh C. Todd, of Tacoma, ex-Democratic
state chairman, has- been in
Washington several days urging him
self for this appointment, and person
ally told Secretary McAdoo he was
entitled to be considered.
John Pattison, National committee
man, has gone on record in favor of
three different candidates. Two years
ago he recommend. ", the appointment
of Mr. Todd, but recently he wrote to
Secretary McAdoo advocating the ap
pointment of H. C. Burson, of Seattle,
if a West Side man is to be named,
and indorsintr Mr. Stone in case the
Secretary decides to give the appoint
ment tb the East Side.
Dr. M. A. Matthews, of Seattle, also
has been in Washington and has
strongly urged the appointment of
"Walter Ronald, of Seattle, who -was
candidate for United States Marshal
Another candidate is Martin Ma
loney, of Colfax, who has strong back
ing, including that of ex-Senator Tur

ALBANY, Or., June 26. (Special.)
Albany and the surrounding country
were wedded in an allegorical cere
mony at 'i big picnic held here today
in connection with Albany's monthly
public sales day. The ceremony took
place at noon in the bandstand on the
Cetral public school grounds.
Miss Beulah Hinckley, office man
ager of the Albany Commercial Club,
acted as the bride and represented Al
bany, while E. C. Roberts, former
president of the State Board of Horti
culture, who resides north of Lebanon,
was the bridegroom and represented
the country. Rev. F. L. Fraaer, pas-

Though threatening skies kept many
away, a large crowd attended the pic
nic, a feature of which was a basket
. dinner at noon.
Three addresses marked the day. At
the forenoon session E. C. Roberts, of
Lebanon, talked on "What Ails Us
Hayseeds," and C. M. Miller, of Port
land, spoke on "Creating Stability in
the Fruit Market."
This afternoon Representative Haw
ley spoke preceding the monthly pub
lic sale. The Albany High School band
furnished music during the day.
Representative Hawley spoke on
"Rural Credits" and explained the sys
tem for Government loans on farms
which is being worked out by a com
mittee of Congress, on which Mr. Haw
ley represents the Pacific Northwest.
He also discussed other matters at Na
tional legislation, especially the Im
provement of rivers and harbors. He
said he thought the recent decision of
the United States Supreme Court on the
Oregon & California Railroad land
grant a reasonable one, and that he be
lieved resultant legislation would
Bieatiy promote the settlement and de
velopment of Oregon.

INAUGURAL IS DRAMATIC
Sluton, lleferrins to I'Vank Case at
Luncheon to Successor, Says Jew
Was Turned Over to Mob by
Governor 2 0'0O Years Ago.
ATLANTA. Ga.. June 26. Artillery,
cavalry and infantry of the state militia
stood guard tonight at the home of
John M. Slaton. who retired as Gov
ernor of the state today, surrendering
the office to Nat E. Harris.
During the day 26 men were arrested
by the militia near the Slaton home and
were still held in the County jail to-nte-tat.
Firearms and explosives, it Is
alleged, were taken from them. To
night, however, there was no indication
of renewed demonstrations against the
ex-Governor because of his action in
commuting the sentence of Leo M.
Conscience Declared True Measure.
At a luncheon given today in honor
of the new Governor, the retiring Gov
ernor referred to the Frank case.
"Honest people may - disagree with
me, an honest man," he said, "but we
realize that we must be measured by
our consciences. Two thousand years
ago another Governor washed his
hands of a case and turned over a Jew
to a mob. For 2000 years that Gover
nor's name has been accursed. If today
another Jew were lying in his grave
because I had failed to do my duty, 1
would all through my life find his
blood on my hands and would consider
myself as assassin through cowardice."
Hisses Heard at Inaugural.
During the inaugural ceremonies at
the Capitol there were several tense
moments. When Governor Slaton ap
proached the new Governor to deliver
the state seal a few hisses were heard.
The President of the State Senate
warned the spectators that unless they
maintained order the galleries would be
cleared. Instantly there was a tumult
Presenting the seal. Governor Slaton
"Governor Harris, I know that during
my term of office this great seal of
state has not been dishonored."
His words were greeted by another
prolonged outburst of applause.
Leaving the Capitol the crowd surged
In on the ex-Governor and had to be
held back by the militia.
that have begun are expected to cause
a rapid rise in the Yaaui River, which
will prevent operations of the Indians
to the Mayo River southward, where
an American settlement is situated.
Latest advices from La Paz were that
that town and vicinity had declared in
favor of Carranza. No fighting was re
ported there. Guaymas has refused to
receive or clear vessels for La Paz.
DRY ACT PRINTED WRONG
Error Would Invalidate Law, It Is
Said, but Will Be Changed.
EUGENE, Or., June 26. (Special.)
According to the wording of the 1915
code recently distributed throughout
the state, and in which a printer's error
was discovered today by Deputy Sher
iff Elkins, of Lane County, the pro
hibition law would be unenforceable,
it Is said. The code uses the words
"not less than $500," when referring to
the penalty, when it should say "not
more than $500." This would leave the
law without any maximum penalty and,
it is said, a law not limiting the pen
alty is unconstitutional.
District Attorney J. M. Devers took
the matter up today with Secretary of
State Ben Olcott. who said the error
had been made by the printer. Printed
slips are being prepared, he said, to be
inserted in the books at the proper

To Get Rid of the Poisonous
Gases and Fermenting Food.
A good long fast will do this
sometimes. A trip to the moun
tains. Tramping. Roughing it.
Yes, very good remedies.
But are you going to avail
yourself of either one of these
remedies. No? Then the next
best thing is to try a bottle of
Peruna. Take it according to di
rections. You will have a natural
appetite. All gas and.fermenta-.
tion in the stomach will dis
appear. Read what Mrs. Emma Bell,
Box 204, Fort Pierce, Florida,
says : "I was taken suddenly
with swelling of the stomach and
bowels, and great distress. Very
painful. Three doctors gave me
no relief. Could not eat any
thing. Everything soured. I
was starving to death. I began
taking Peruna and was soon
strong enough to do work. Af
ter taking five botles I can
truthfully say I am well. I
gained twenty pounds.
