LONDON, May 13. The Rt. Hon. Sir
Edward Grey, K. G.. M. P.. Secretary of
State for Foreign Affairs, talking with
the writer at luncheon in the states
man's London home, on April 10. said
"Prussian tyranny over Western Eu

by Mr. Asqulth as regards the restora
tion of Belgium and Serbia shall be
kept. We have signed a pact to make
peace only in concert with our allies.
This pact. I need not say, we shall
honor strictly and to the end.
Free Europe Is Desire.
"What we and our allies are fighting
for is a free Europe. We want Europe
free not only from the domination of
one nationality by another, but from
hectoring diplomacy and the peril of
war;. free from the constant rattling of
the sword in the scabbard and from the

prey Never Interviewed Before.
It is a fact, I believe, that Sir Ed
ward, one of the greatest figures in
the world war and one of the most
famous men in modern political history,
never was interviewed in a Journalistic
sense before. It is also true, I think,
that in the long annals of the British
Foreign Office this is the first instance
in which Its chief has consented to
speak to his fellow men through the
mediumshlp of a correspondent.
What is the most amazing fact about
this man to my mind Is that the Ger
mans regard him as the Mephlstopheles
of Faust, of Armageddon, scoffing,
sardonic, crafty and fiendish. One of
their appellations for him Is "Satan."
They feign to believe, and possibly
they do believe, that his main object in
life has been to brew trouble, to bring
about war and especially to effect the
strangulation or asphyxiation of Ger
many. This of a man of the most
civilized type, broad of vision, nurtured
in liberalism, a fly-fisherman, a tamer
of birds and squirrels and a lifelong
protagonist of peace.

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, May 20. (Special.) Hughes'.
Presidential stock took a tremendous
Jump today when the returns from the
Oregon primary were received In Wash
ington. It is the prevailing belief among Re
publican leaders in Congress that the
showing he made in Oregon the only
showing he will be able to make be
fore the voters prior to the convention
at Chicago is so convincing and so
overwhelming as to leave no doubt as
to his strength and his availability.
Oregon Returns Turn Scale.
There was known to be among Re
publicans In Congress a general leaning
toward Hughes, but many who wavered
were awaiting the returns from Oregon
before committing themselves abso
lutely. Republicans from Pennsyl
vania and from other Eastern states
who recently have been home attend
ing primary elections came back to
Washington believing that Hughes
would roll up an early majority In
the Chicago convention without much
difficulty. If the Oregon result showed
he has retained his hold on the people.
The great lead by which Hughes
swept Oregon, in face of the fact that
he declined to sanction the use of his
name on the ballot, is accepted in Wash
ington as indication that he has the
popular spontaneous support of the
rank and file of the party.
Gloom Pervades Democracy.
As there is much Joy among Repub
licans over the Hughes victory in Ore
gon, there is correspondingly gloom
among Democrats, who express the fear
that the Oregon result foreshadows
Hughes nomination at. Chicago. Many
Democrats discussing the Oregon vote
today were frank enough to say that
Hughes Is the most dangerous man the
Republicans could name to oppose Wil
son. Such old-line Republicans as ex-Representative
Dwight. of New York, the
actual head. of the Root boom, in talk
ing to Republicans, said that Hughes
is the best campaigner, bar none, in the
Republican party, and If he can roll up
such a vote as he received in Oregon,
where he was not a candidate, and
where he objected even to the placing
of his name on the ticket, it would be
Idle to speculate on the vote he could
poll if he went before the country in
the Fall as the nominee and active can
didate of the Republican party.
Wilson's Defeat Believed In Sight.
In the light of the Oregon returns. It
is generally . admitted . that Hughes,
more than, any other man in the field,
can bring all elements of the Repub
lican party together in the Fall cam
paign, and any candidate who can do
this, on the face of the returns of 1912,
can beat Wilson.
The Oregon primary vote of Friday is
taken as the first and only important
beacon of the pre-conventlon campaign.
It Is the first and only time the voters
