Candidacy for Place in Senate
Is Denied.
Ttepresentative Emphasizes Interest
In Establishment of Naval Base
' in Columbia River.
He is not a candidate for the United
States senate, but will seek to return
to the lower house, declares C. N. Mc
Arthur, representative from the Third
congressional district. To set the po-
litical gossips at rest, Mr. McArthur
T makes the following statement:
During the past few weeks several
Oregon newspapers have mentioned me
as a possible candidate for the repub
lican nomination for United States sen
ator from this state for the term be
ginning March 4, 1921, and since my re
turn to Portland two weeks ago, I
have been frequently interrogated as
to whether I intend to enter the sena
torial race or seek re-election to the
house of representatives.
I deeply appreciate the offers of
support that have come to me from
many sections of the state in connec
tion with the senatorial race, but I
' wish to take this opportunity of in
forming the public that I shall not en
ter this contest, but shall seek re
election to the I'ouse.
Kival But Plan Supported.
"I am now serving my third term as
representative from the Third Oregon
district and am a memtfer of the im
portant committee on naval affairs. I
am deeply interested in the establish
ment of a naval base at the mouth of
the Columbia river and in channel and
harbor improvements that will put
Portland on the map as a port, and it
would be the height of folly volun
. tarlly to abandon my position in the
house, where 1 can help these matters
along, for the uncertainty of a (sena
torial race.
"I am also interested in other meas
ures affecting the welfare of this sec
tion of the country, as well as those
- of national character, and would like
to remain in congress long enough to
assist in writing this legislation on the
' statute books. I am deeply sensible of
. the honors already conferred upon me
by the people of this district and at the
proper time shall issue a formal dec
laration of my candidacy for re-election,
standing squarely upon my
McArthur Is In Portland.
Mr. McArthur arrived in Portland
two weeks ago, having come to Ore
gon for the purpose of accompanying
Secretary Daniels and Admirals Parks
and McKean on their tour of inspec
1 tion of the Columbia river. During
: the past few days he has been in
conference with delegations and lndi-
viduals who are interested in legisla
tive and departmental matters at
inasmuch as the house f representa
tives is not transacting any business
of importance, he will not return to
Washington until October 1. Before
leaving Portland, he will confer with
members of the Port of Portland and
others interested in port matters.
Mr. McArthur has reopened his of
fices in the Yeon building, which have
been clOBed since lie first went to
congress in 1915. He will hereafter
maintain these offices for the transac
tion of official business while in the
vaudeville to a cinema house of the
first order went into effect.

selections from "William Tell" and
"Carmen." In addition it followed
closely the screen story.

Four Attaches of Domestic Re
lations Tribunal to Go.
Xcw Quartet for Places of Those
Discharged by Judge
Jacob Kanzler.
That a new broom iweeps clean was
proved in the court of domestic rela
tions, formerly the juvenile court, yes
terday. Judge Jacob Kanzler announc
ing the loppinc of four appointees of
Judge Tazwell. three of them women,
from the payroll on September JO, and
the selection of four new probation of
ficers. This leaves only Mrs. Sadie W.
Gardner, stenographer, and E. H. Pick
ard. deputy probation officer, of the old
regime which terminated July I.
Mrs. Delia C. Whiting, chief proba
tion officer for girls; Mrs. Sophie E.
King, deputy probation officer for girls;
Mrs. Mary Mallett, deputy probation of
ficer for girls, and T. B. McDevitt,
deputy probation officer, are the em
ployes who received notice that their
services will terminate with tne close
of this month.
Mrs. Mary E. Pringle. an employe of
the attendance department of the Port
land public schools for the past five
years, has been named acting chief
probation officer for girls. The other
probation officers appointed In the girls'
division of the work of the court of
domestic relations are Mrs. Kate H.
Magulre and Mrs.. Eva Pillsbury, both
of the women's protective division of
the police bureau.
BTevr Appointees Approved.
William S. Hale, for five years head
of the state industrial school for boys
at Salem, will replace Mr. McDevitt.
The new appointees have all been
approved by the child welfare commis
sion of the state and have only to b
formally installed by the Multnomah
county commissioners. .
Miss Mary A. Kelly, head of the home
placing department of the court, re
signed two weeks ago to take up new
work In California. Her position has
not yet been filled and Judge Kanzler
is considering discontinuing the work
of that department.
The chief probation officer for girls
ha been receiving $140 a month, her
assistants $110 and $100. Deputy pro
bation officers in the boys' division
receive $110.
All of the employes replaced by yes
terday's order of Judge Kanzler alBO
have been approved by the child wel
fare commission as. quail fled for the
positions they have been holding.
"Among those qualified, however. I
found some whom I believe to be bet
ter fitted for the work," explained
Judge Kanzler. "Mrs. Pringle. in par
ticular, comes to me highly recom
mended by the child welfare com
mission." Controversy Is Possible.
A question which is now agitating
court house circles is whether the four
employes who have been notlfed that
their services will not be required
after the end of .this month will allow
themselves to be dismissed. It Is
known that an attorney has been con
sulted and that a stiff fight, bringing
into controversy not only the right of
Judge Kanzler to hire or discharge
employes In the court of domestic rela
tions, but the constitutionality of the
court Itself is under contemplation. '
Since the inception of the court of
domestic relations, lawyers have held
its operation to be entirely Illegal, con
tending that the law which brought it
into being is invalid. Attorney-General
Brown even expressed his doubt as to
the legitimacy of the operation of the
new court, but no rt;st case has yet
been filed.
If the matter is brought to issue. It
probably would be on the grounds that
Judge Kanzler is not legally a judge
iiid that the old juvenile court has not
been abolished In fact, holding that
only Judge Tazwell, now circuit but
formerly county and juvenile judge,
can discharge employes of the court.
There are legal obstacles to such ac
tion but it Is believe that the sweep-
