Claim to Central Pacific
LIVELY CONTEST EXPECTED
Sixty-Day Stay Granted in
APPEAL CHANCE GIVEN
Carl R. Gray Issues Statement to
Effect That Road Ought to
Be. Entirely Free.
The Union Pacific is determined
to combat the claim of the Southern
Pacific to Central Pacific, from
which she was, so recently divorced
by court order. Carl R. Gray presi
dent of the Union Pacific system,
announced the position of that com
pany yesterday when he said his
people would oppose any further
claim of the Southern Pacific to the
Central in defense of Union Pacific
rights under the railroad acts.
Order Held in Abeyance.
The recent order of the supreme
court for the divorce of the Central
from the Southern Pacific has been
held in abeyance for 60 days to give
opportunity to file petition for a
rehearing. This was upon the re
quest of the Southern Pacific com
pany. Portland is sought to be drawn
into the contest for California in
terests are jealous of Southern Pa
cific prestige and have asked the
Chamber of Commerce of this city
to align Itself upon the side of that
line in the controversy. The fol
lowing committee has. been named
by President O. W. Mlelke of the
Chamber to Investigate the whole
situation and report: H. B. Van
Duzer, chairman; 1 Allen Lewis, F.

President - Gray speaks of the
community of interest between the
Union Pacific and Central Pacific
built as they were to make the short
est through route from coast ' to
coast. He says .that the Union Pacific
prefers the Central Pacific to be en
tirely free from other roads and
to be operated as an independent
line. If that condition cannot be
realized, the Union Pacific is will
ing to purchase the Central, but
efforts by the Southern Pacific to
continue its present control of the
line will be apposed strongly.
Special Interest Recognised.
"Although there was a clear rec
ognition by the supreme court,"
President Gray's statement pro
ceeds, "of the special interest of
the Union Pacific in the Central
Pacific as the owner of one-half of
the line built under the Pacific
railroad acts with the aid of gov
ernment bonds and land grants, the
Union Pacific, notwithstanding the
policy of the Southern Pacific to
favor the southern route, as stated
by the supreme court decision, has
refrained thus far from taking any
part in the litigation between the
government and the Southern, Pa
cific. But we have been appre
hensive that in case the supreme
court should decide' in favor of the
Southern Pacific, it would yield to
the temptation to route even more
of this San Francisco and central
California traffic in favor of its
long haul and via the longer route

Unofficial Count "Made by The
Oregonian at Time of Elec
tion Is Vindicated. -
Crepe may be removed from the
front door of the political domicile of
R. J. Kirkwood, counted out by the
official figures announced by the
county clerk's office last Tuesday on
the recent primaries, and red, white
and blue bunting substituted for a
re-check yesterday robbed Hermon
A. Lewis of 315 votes which had been
credited him officially, putting him
out of the running and re-establishing
Kirkwood on the republican
legislative ticket ' ,
Incidentally, the unofficial count
made by T:.a Oregonian at the time
of the election has been vindicated.
The former official announcement
showed wide divergence from the
newspaper ' figures, for the latter
gave Lewis 16,882 votes, whereas
the official proclamation had given
him 17,197. Discovery of the error
yesterday makes the official count
for Lewis 16,897, a discrepancy of
but 15 votes from the unofficial
figures. ., .
The reicheck gave Herbert Gor
don one more vote than . he .lias
been credited with before and makes
him secure in the next to last

BY JAMES WOOD.
PUGET SOUND BUREAU, Cheha
lis, Wash., June 10. (Special.) It
was a gooh convention, a big , con
vention and a generally harmonious
convention that the republicans of
the state of Washington held in this
city today. ( With 824 delegates dis
tributed to the various counties
there were but few absentees. The
highest vote cast during the day,
that on the poll tax 'controversy,
show 808 in attendance, and they
stuck to the job until the chairman's
gavel fell for the last time.
The convention declared for the
repeal of the poll tax and refused
to sanction any resolution looking
to the repeal of the direct primary.
These two matters and the quickly
finished fight for the temporary
chairmanship were the only points
of contest in the whole proceedings.
As to everything else the conven
tion worked together as one man.
Leaders Shift Plana.
Leaders in the effort for the re
peal or radical amendment of the
direct . primary law lost any chance
they might have had with the con
vention by a shift from their origi
nal plans. With the platform com
mittee majority determined against
them it was at first proposed that
the convention be asked to adopt a
plank for revival of the ttomin$.ting
convention for congressional, state
and county officers with the right
"to allow all others to become candi
dates on petition and the whole list
to be sumbitted to party primary
vote. In convention today, however,
T. . P. , Fisk of Cowlitz offered a
plank briefly pledging tne. party to
repeal the direct primary law. Jay
Thomas of King offered a substi- '
tute- calling upon the next legisla
ture to pass ln act repealing th
primary with a referendum, to vote
of tne people. Mr. Fisk accepted
the substitute. -. -
Two hours of debate that ranged
through the history of 'Washington
territorial days disclosed consider
able sentiment against the primary
but an unwillingness to go aa far
as Messrs. Fisk and. Thomas urged.
The noisiest demonstration of the
convention broke out when Mr. Fisk,
in lauding the republicanism of
Cowlitz county, retorted to the- in
terruption of a Seattle delegate by
saying that in Cowlitz it would
never be possible to elect a radical
socialist as mayor or to any other
office. The reference was to Seat
tle's recent experience in the election-
of Dr. Edwin J. Brown. But
when it came to final test on the
roll call of the counties . the vote
stood 150 for repeal of the primary
and 227 against- it.
Declaration Law Favored.
. The - ecommendation of the plat
form committee which was sus
tained "by this vote favors the law
passed by the Jast legislature to
compel declaration of party affilia
tions at the time of registration.
This law has been withheld from
operation so far by referendum. It
will be voted on in November.
The only other big demonstration
of thj day followed the reading of a
long telegram from Senator Poln-

Anti-English Feeling v in Egypt
and Recent Assassination
of Foreigners Cited.
LONDON. June 10. There is much
apprehension here concerning the
safety of the Prince of Wales, who
arrived yesterday at Cairo, the last
stop on his homeward Journey, with
the exception of short visits at Malta
and Gibraltar. Those who are fear
ful point to tha anti-English feeling
in Egypt and the recent assassina
tions of foreigners. They criticise
strongly. the decision to have him
visit Cairo, and say there, will be
a distinct feeling of relief when It
is known he is safely aboard the
Renown again. . . r - ,
All messages from Cairo give the
impression that the welcome given
him by the natives was a cool one.
The Outlook said regarding the
visit to Cairo:
"Of all the unfortunate moments
to select for the pfince's visit to
Cairo, this seems about the worst.
To expose the prince in the streets
of Cairo under the protection of an
incompetent police force is to take
a very big risk without any com
pensating advantage whatever."

Regretfully Resumed as

From break of dawn yesterday
until the early hours this morning
Portland was in the hands of happy,
noisy Arabs, who having tasted of
the city's hospitality two-years ago
tarried just as long as they dared,
and then regretfully rolled np their
tents and stole away to resume the
journey to San Farncisco.
Members of Al Kader temple were
on the job from the moment that
the first of the large vanguard of
visiting Shriners arrived until the
last train had pulled out. All who ,
desired to view the Columbia high- r
way and this included 98 per cent
of the visitors were cared for, and
those who did not take the. high
way ride were taken on other trips.
For-Hire Cars Are Used.
Lack of automobiles yesterday

ful that Portland might lose the
enviable reputation she holds for
hospitality, Potentate Tetu engaged
tU the for-hire cars that he could

Mayor Baker called on city em

large number of firemen and police-"
men who were off duty and sent
them out as drivers of cars.
In this way every visitor who
desired was entertained, although
there was . a delay in getting the
parties on their .way. A general
campaign will be waged this week
for - automobiles to be used next
Saturday and Sunday when 10,000
Shriners will stop in Portland. Every
automobile owner in the city, re
