'STATUS OF MOVE IN DOUBT
Progressives May Abandon Intention
to Initiate Similar Amendment.
Greater Number of Referen

s OLYMPIA. Wash., Oct. SO. (Special.)
Defeat of the California non-partisan
' election measure may mean the aban
donment by Washington Progressives
;of a plan to initiate a similar amend
?ment next year.
The recent Legislature, in passing
the so-called Whitney bill, a prominent
feature of the Republican election law
:irogramm, provided for greater party
responsibility and Incidentally greater
party power by establishing legal party
conventions and binding all nominees
.to pledge allegiance to the platform

I Radical Step Is Planned.
J While Democrats started the refer
endum movement, the Progressives in
-effect took the campaign over, obtain
ing three times the necessary number
of signatures through the agency of
'the "joint legislative committee" of the
State Orange, State Federation of La
bor and farmers' unions.
So elated were the leaders with the
ase with which the referendum sig
natures were obtained, that they
planned to initiate two measures, to
come up next November at the same
;1lme as the referred bills, which would
'represent a. radical step in the direc
tion opposite to that aimed at by the
Republican state programme.
These initiative bills were to be a
non-partisan election law and a
"blanket ballot" law. The exact ground
to be covered by these measures had
not been determined definitely, but
general plans were for the non-parti-tan
election law to cover county offi
cials and members of the Legislature,
and for the "blanket ballot" plan to
provide for a single sheet of paper to

to the time that the returns from the

Tvhether they will allow the substan

Whether the non-partisan bill is in

year's election there will be a greater
number of initiative and referendum
measures before the voters of Wash

Alhough this initiative measure is

BRIDGE APPLIANCES ARRIVE

the week from San Francisco, brought
30 tons of paraphernalia and device's

and interlocking system for the Wil-

and its approaches.
According to the statement of Super
intendent Charlton the system will ex
tend from a mile and a half to two
miles each side of the bridge. When
trains approach the draw, which must
remain continually open except when
trains are crossing, the signals will
advise the bridge operator when two
miles distant, giving sufficient time
in wntcn to turn the draw.
The system is electrically automatic

President Kerr, at McMinnville
Sleeting, Traces Education Progress
M'MINNVILLE. Or,' Oct. SO. (Spe
eial.) "Educational Ideals for 2000
years after Plato involved nothing
more than the training of the govern
ing classes. Mental culture and polish
were- the supreme ends of education
said President W. J. Kerr, of the Ore
gon Agricultural College, in an address
buora- 3i0 -teacher of Norm T&maUJ
County schools. "In America," Dr. Kerr
continued, "from the founding of Har
vard College up to the end of the Rev
olutionary War. nothing was added to
this ancient curriculum but physics,
chemistry and divinity. A change be
gan with the ordinance of 1787. but it
was not until the passage of the Morrill
act of Congress in 1862 that the real
revolution in modern educational ideals
began. Then came the realization that
public education was a National need,
not for the professional classes only,
but for the industrial classes.
"A longr stride from the older ideals,
which excluded women entirely and
which recognized the needs of the gov
erning classes only, to the new ideals
that include - engineering, scientific
training in agriculture and home
economics, has been made through the
agency of free public education. Yet
even within the past, half century the
fight for- free schools has been fought
and won. Not until 1909 did the Na
tional Educational Association indorse
industrial education for the public
schools. The present ideal, now firmly
established, is to reach all the children
of all the people with the kind of train
ing that will fit them for the kind of
life work that they will need."

DALLAS, Ot.. Oct, 80. (Special.)
The protest of Judge Teal against the
closing of the Saiem bridge, together
with the fact that Folk County would
be unable to raise by general taxation,
without special vote, its proportionate
cost of a new bridge, and the objec

the lines suggested by County Judge
Teal, and that traffic across the same

Growth In Crab-fishing Industry Is
Expected Wnen Improvement
of Bar Is Completed.
ABERDEEN, Wash Oct. 30. (Spe
cial.) After a rather ' late start the
salmon run on Grays Harbor is heavy
now and most of the six canneries are
operating overtime. Packers expect to
nandle between 100,000 and 200,000
cases of salmon here this season. This
pack will comprise the work of three
canneries in Aberdeen, one in Hoquiam
and two tft Moclips.
The run during the past week has
been the heaviest of the season, but
consisted largely of dog salmon. Some
silvereides were taken. Fishermen are
receiving five cents for dog salmon
and two cents a pound for the silver
sides. The packing plants have been
littered with great piles of fish, some
times between 8000 and 10,000 being
heaped in one pile.
Grays Harbor crab fishermen look
forward to the growth of that indus

say the improvement will permit small

II. Peterson, Wlio Retires.
BOISE, Idaho. Oct 30. (Special)
Lieutenant-Governor Taylor, of Sand
point, will be a candidate for Gover
nor at the Republican primaries in this
state, instead of for Attorney-General.
In fact, it is likely his own county
will produce a candidate for Attorney
General in Guy Martin, Progressive
party candidate for Governor in 1912,
who is being urged by Republicans and
Progressives alike to make the race.
The possibility that Edward A. Wal
ters may enter the Republican Guber
natorial race from the south and the
fact that James H. Wise, of Twin
Falls, is being groomed for Attorney-
oeneral from the same section have
added much interest to recent devel
opments in political circles this week.
Secflonal Lines Objected To.
Lieutenant-Governor Taylor has au
thorized, the following statement:

ernor but I do not believe that the
time is now ripe to announce my can
didacy. , I don't like the idea of get-
ting into the political game a year or
more before the primaries, but I may
be forced to announce my candidacy
sooner than I would like to on account
of the activities of candidates from
other parts of the state.
"I don't want to be considered a sec
tional man. If nominated and elected
I do not want it said I am from the
north. The Governor of Idaho should
be from all parts of the state. The
fact remains, however, . that if th
north will get together on a candidate
that man can be nominated and
Best Republican Wanted.
"The south has the big majority of
votes and Governor Alexander will
undoubtedly get a good vote in South

should get a majority of 6000 votes il
"You can say for me that I am just
good enough a Republican to consider
Republican success ahead of my own
ambitions. . If I am led to believe that
I could not be nominated, and elected.
I certainly would not hinder the nomi
nation and election of a Republican
who could, be elected and who would

Governor to do so.
(in j- Martin Urged to Run.
Party leaders confirm the Teport that
pressure has been brought from Repub
lican and Progressive party sources on
Guy Martin, of Sandpoint. Mr. Mar
tin made a remarkable run for Gov
ernor in 1912 in a three-cornered fight
and, had it not been for the fact voters
had to write in the Progressive party
Presidential electors he might have
While Mr. Martin was enthusiastical
ly supported in 1912, it is questionable
if the Progressives would give him the
same support again, due to his refusal
to be their candidate for Governor i
At the very last moment, almost, in
that campaign Mr. Martin refused to
accept the nomination and the party
leaders were forced to make a hurried
canvass for a substitute. They secured
Hugh E. McEIroy, who made a good
showing, but was defeated.
Judge Walters Vet Doubtful.
George R. Barker. Secretary of State,
will be a candidate for re-election.
Efforts to bring Judge Edward A.
Walters, of Twin Falls, out as a non
partisan candidate for Justice of the
Supreme Court have not as yet been
successful. Many of his friends be
lieve he would be a stronger candi
date for Governor and every effort has
been made to groom him for that of
fice. Judge Walters is noncommittal.
Attorney-General Peterson will not
be a candidate for renomination. Mr.
Wise, of Twin Falls, is looked upon
here as a prospective candidate.
