FOflT STEVENS'. Or.. Jun 26.. (Spe

' speculating upon, Oregon is accom
plishing namely, the military defense
of its own coast' line. The results of
the recent annual target practice of
the eight companies of Coaat Artillery
lieserves. representing practically
every important city in the state, dem
onstrates beyond a shadow of doubt
the fact that citizen soldiery can be
trained into a thoroughly efficient co
ordinating branch of the regular Army.
Firing under the same conditions and
with the same guns, projectiles and
powder charges as the regulars use.
they have achieved results during this
year's target practice season that will
stand as a monument to the abilities
of Captain Collins, their regular Army
inspector instructor, and to the con
sistent efforts of the Fort Stevens au
thorities in their endeavor to perfect
b. defensive fighting machine second
to no oLher state in the Union.
Great Improvement Made.
I-ea than four years ago the Oregon
Coast Artillery Reserves might have
been truthfully described as an un
trained mob. At that time a regular
soldier or officer watched their every
move as they awkwardly attempted to
manipulate the 10 and 12-inch weapons
that defend the mouth of the Columbia
liiver basin, the inlet that guards 250..
OOU square miles of the northwestern
area of the United States. Thi year
the regulars acted more as observers
I'robably the most surprising event
of this season's training was the ex
ceptional result gained by the mortar
companies in obtaining three hits out
of four shots fired. This is a score
that would have pleased any regular
organization in the United States serv
ice. Mortars are difficult to handle
eurcessf ully. All the firing is Indirect
and depends for its results upon the
transmission of information from sta
tions located as a general rule thou
sands of yards from the batteries.
Um; Xr Hi nine Required.
Obtaining, transmission and use of
this data requires quickness, accuracy
unci highly trained technical ability.
Year after year the reserves have man
aged to bring with them to their en
campment at Fort Stevens the same
men as they used on former encamp
ments so as to Insure eventual perfec
tion in the handling of the more dif
ficult positions. Some of these men
have lost valuable positions because of
their devotion to the cause of the state.
Both the mortar and gun shells" are
rendered more terrific in their de
structive effects by being filled with
. high-power explosive compound
known as dunnite. It is said that only

CONVENES JOLY 7
Choose New Chairman on
Resignation of Mr. Day.
NEW BLOOD IS WANTED
Recall of Bull Moose Hinges on
Selection of Leaders for 1916
Campaign and Several Are
Mentioned to Direct Party.
BOISE. Idaho. June 26. (Special.)
The Republican state central committee
has been called to meet in Boise. July 7,
CORVALLIS FIRST IN 53 YEARS.
and not a little political importance is
attached to the conference. In fact,
George A. Day, state chairman. In issu
ing the call says the meeting is one at
which "there will be business of great
importance to the party." ,
Part of that important business will
be to act on the resignation of State
Chairman Day, which whl be presented
on the ground that he does not feel he
can devote more of his time to leader
ship duties and. that it is'tkne for some,
one else to take up the work.
Following on the heels of the dispo
sition of the long list of Indictments
against public officials in the state
house, the conference of party leaders
is believed to indicate that the pro
gramme to- put new men in charge of
party affairs will be followed out to
l-;rly Start Is Favored.
In retiring . as state chairman Mr.
Day will Inform the committee that he
believes an early start should be made
for the 1916 campaign so that the party
can present a uniteu front in the elec
tion. A strong bid Is to be made for the
vote of the Progressives. It is known
that Senator Borah has been negotiat
ing (or.junt such a. merger. He has
been able to approach the Progressive
party leaders in Idaho as no other man
could have done. The Progressives in
sist on a change of Republican leaders
before they will consent to act on over
tures. Republican party leaders, con
servatives and progressives, believe
also this should be done.
The Progressive vote, as cast at the
last election, holds the balance of power
in an election if the Bull Moose care
to use it. but tho greater part of the
vote has Republican tendencies.
Chairmanship Seekers Numerous.
There Is an interesting contest on for
the state chairmanship. A number ef
prospective candidates have been men
tioned and two of them, at least, may
be considered actively In the race at
the present time. They are Evan Evans,
of Grangeville, who was manager for
ex-Chief Justice Ailshie when he was a
candidate for United States Senator,
and Shad L. Hodglns, ex-United States
Mr. Evans Is said not to be satisfac
tory to the Brady Republicans. Senator
Brady was Justice Ailshie's successful
opponent for the Senatorship.
While Senator Borah will not attempt
to dictate the chairmanship. It is known
that the election of Mr. Hodglns will
not be unsatisfactory to him. Mr.
Hodglns was appointed Marshal
through the influence of Idaho's senior
Senator. The other two possible candi
dates for chairman are E. H. Dewey, of
Nam pa. and Charles L. Heitman, of
Rathdruro. They can hardly be called
candidates, however. To induce them
to take charge of the party's affairs
would require some effort.
Both Look II lie her.
Both have strong Gubernatorial as
pirations. U is understood the north
ern part of the state will try to center
on Mr. Heitman and the southern section
on Mr. Dewey. Mr. Dewey has almost
been selected as the nominee by some
of the leaders.
The third man who begins to loom up
with some strength as a possible Guber
natorial candidate Is D. W. Da via. ot
American Falls, ex-State Senator and
a member of the state central commit,
tee. While progressive in his tenden
cies, he is said to be satisfactory to
the conservatives. Mr. Davis nearly en
tered the race for the nomination two
years ago. He was only held back by
the fact that Senator Brady was run
ning for re-election. He is a close per
sonal and, business friend, of the Junior
Farmer Reseat Opinion.
Bine the action taken by E. G. Davis,
Assistant Attorney-General, in advjsiny
the State Auditor it would be unwise
to lssuewarrants against the farm bu
reau appropriation of $10,000, the Davis
gubernatorial stock has dropped off
several fractions. The agricultural in
terests have been inclined to view his
actidVi as uncalled for and unfriendly
to their only representative department
of the state government. Captain
Davis says that the opinion he ex
pressed was offhand and was not of
ficial. The matter may be settled with
out a test being made on the consti
tutionality of the act.
Captain -Davis to Resign.
Captain Davis will resign about July
20 as Assistant Attorney-General and
take up law practice in Boise. He was
formerly secretary of the Republican
State Central Committee.
The report also has been current "In
political circles that James F. Ailshie.
now engaged In private law practice,
will enter the gubernatorial race. He
was defeated for United States Sena
tor before the Legislature and two
years following at adlrect election.
Judge Ailshie. however, has strong sup
porters in bis party in the north. He
may swing his strength and support
to Mr. Heitman.
