36. DELEGATES PRESENT
Executive Committee Instructed
to Investigate Faults in
Direct Primary Law.
Support of the republican ticket
from top to bottom and a determina
tion to triumph In the general elec
tion in November was the main idea
expressed by the republican state
committee, which yesterday or
ganized by electing Walter L. Tooze
Jr. of McMlnnville, as chairman. A.
H. Lea, who had the backing of the
Ku Klux Klan. received six votes
to 30 received by Tooze, two of
Lea votes being cast by A. A. Bailey,
committeeman from Multnomah who
also held' an outside proxy.
It was a regular old-time repub
lican gathering and for the first
time in years every county was rep
resented. The committee pledged it
self unequivocally to the republican
ticket and authorized the executive
committee to investigate the abuses
of the direct primary law with the
ultimate object of preserving repre
sentative government and recog
nize party organization.
Campaigning; Lasts for Days.
The election of Tooze came after
several days of campaigning. The
klan was anxious to obtain control
of the Btate committee, but in view
of the attitude of that organization
against Ben W. Olcott,, republican
nominee for governor, an over
whelming number of the state com
mitteemen decided to play safe and
see that the party organization
would support the ticket and not
place the machinery in the hands of'
men who might decline to function
' Mr. Tooze, who for 14 years has
been a member of the state com
mittee and who served at national
headquarters In the Harding cam
paign, was a 'supporter of I. L.
Patterson in the primaries. Per
sonalities were disregarded in the
committee and the one thing that"
the committe wanted was the selec
tion of a chairman who would back
up the nominees of the primaries.
E. E. Blanchard of Josephine county,
presented the name of Tooze, which
was seconded by Roy D. Smith of
Hood River and E. C. Klrkpatrick
of Polk. Mr. Bailey offered the
name of Lea, which was not sec
onded. The ballot showed 30 for
Tooze and six for Lea.
Sir. Bailey Haa Proxy.
Mr. Bailey, who in addition to his
own vote had the proxy of A. V.
Swift of Baker, which proxy was
originally supposed to be in the
hands of George Huntington Currey,
declared that it would be a mistake
to elect Tooze as Lea was the man
who could bring the different fac
tions in the republican party to
gether. To members of the com
mittee, earlier in the day, Bailey
asaerted that he represented 9000
votes in Multnomah county and
unless Lea was elected he. Bailey,
would bolt the convention. Bailey
took his hat and departed when he
saw that his candidate was de
feated and before the result was
In offering Tooze, Committeeman
Blanchard declared that republicans
cannot permit a trifling difference
to' injure the republican party, and
"when in the booth at the election,
with your conscience and your God,
you will stand for the republican
party and let nothing interfere."

Sir Arthur, Happy Over Re

SPIRITUALIST TO RETURN
Noted Author Expected to Visit
America Again Next Year.
Prohibition Is Praised.
NEW YORK. "June 24. (Special.)
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, novelist,
lecturer and advocate' of spiritual
ism, who has been in this country
four months lecturing on spiritual
ism and psychic problems, sailed to
day for home on the White Star
steam Adriatic bound for Liverpool.
He was accompanied by Lady Doyle
and his three children, "Billy," his
little, girl, and Dennis and Malcolm,
his two boys.
Sir Arthur was all smiles because
of his receptloji here. He was more
than pleased at the interest shown
in the cause of spiritualism in this
country, which he said was greater
than he anticipated. He thought
the cause of spiritualism suffered
to some extent because of lack of
centralization of effort. The same
condition obtained in England and
the continent, he said. When the
process of centralization of the
movement grows the cause will
grow in leaps and bounds, he
thought. As to spiritualistic mat
ters, he said nothing other than he
has said many times on the lecture
platform and in private conversa
tion. , - - .
Psychic Detective Suggested.
He was asked If he thought
spiritualism or psychic Investiga
tion would help solve the problem
of the Ward case. To this question
he replied that it was quite, possible
to solve the hidden mysteries as to
the-, motive for " the shooting of
Peters, but that In the -use of a
medium for such "work the medium
would have to be a person who was
in direct sympathy with Peters, the
murdered boy. Then again a psy
chic detective might.be put to work
on the case to a great advantage.
Sir Arthur Bald that he did not
care to discuss the case in detail
because he had not studied it close
enough, but from surface indications
it looked to him like blackmail and
. ' English . Medium Cited.
Sir' Arthur told of an English
medium. Van Burgh' by name, who
he thought was at present in the
United States, who took the clothing
of a missing man and was placed
in a trance. .In that state Van
Burgh described the missing man
and told where the body of the man
could be found, drowned among
some lily pads. The location was so
vividly described that the police had
no difficulty in identifying the spot..
. "I discovered many very sensitive
mediums in the United States," said
Sir Arthur, "and attended many
seances. Some were interesting in
deed and some I found to be frauds.
I came across one young girl who
has been in spiritualistic communi
cation with Professor Henry James
and Professor Heary Hyslop. This
young girl while in communication
with the two professors spoke in
highly technical terms used by these
men, which were totally unknown
to her, and used involved sentences
not in the compass of her vocabu
lary. I received good advice from
Professor Hyslop as to the methods
of properly conducting spiritualistic
seances." - -v
Sir Arthur was greatly Impressed
by what he saw of the workings of
prohibition In this country. - .

Police Guard House.
LONDON, June 24 (By the Asso

tragedy . fresh In mind, the police
took amazing precautions to guard
the king and queen, the membersvof
the cabinet and other prominent
personages who attended the
American ambassador's dinner to
night. Groups of Scotland Yard
men in every manner of disguise
were deployed in doorways, alleys
and obscure corners, and fully S00
special detectives patrolled the
streets- for a radius of several
blocks around the Harvey residence,
almost as much an object of Interest
as the Wilson home nearby.
Hundreds of curious waited out
side to catch a glimpse of the dis
tinguished guests. Detectives were
on all sides when Premier Lloyd
George alighted from his automo
bile, and the other members of the
cabinet were similarly safeguarded.
The gathering lasted until after
midnight, the king and queen re
maining until the end, which is un
usual, as the sovereigns were never
known to remain to such a late
hour at previous dinners.
The scene within the ambassa
dor's house resembled a glittering
spectacle of mld-Vlctorian days.
A'l the men, with the exceo'lon of
Chief Justice Taft, Were attired in
knee breeches and the British guests
carried jeweled swords. Many deco

Flag on Embassy Drops to Half
Mast When News-of Death of
Leader Is Received.
BERLIN, June 24. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Dr. Walter Rath
enau, German forelgrn minister, and
more closely identified than any
other German with the efforts for
rehabilitation of his country since
the war, was shot and killed by two
or more unknown assassins while on
his way. from his residence this
morning to the foreign office.
The minister was subjected to a
veritable hail of bullets, one of
them striking him in the throat
and passing upward t ttfe brain
while others struck him in various
parts of the body. Hand-grenades
also were thrown, almost wrecking
the car in which Dr. Rathenau Was
riding and inflicting further injuries
on the minister.
Government 1 Aroused.
Chancellor Wirth's government
tonight marshaled the nation's ele
ments to the defense of the young
German republic and organized
labor, represented in both socialist
parties; again was first to buckle
bn the armor, just as it did during
the Kapp revolt. Announcement
was made that the government
would establish extraordinary courts
for the trial of nationalist plotters
and that state of emergency for
Prussia would be proclaimed.
All regimental reunions and mili
taristic demonstrations are to be
prohibited. Yet. despite vociferous
cries ,of r "long live the republic,"
which resounded - th.ough the
reichstag chamber at the close of a
memorial session to Rathenau to
day, thoughtful men of all ranks
and parties were silently but
gravely apprehensive for the na
Dinger Fully Realized.
While the heat of resentment and
partisan feeling has not yet suffi
ciently cooled to warrant a sure ap
praisal of the direction in which, the
political effect of Rathenau's assas
sination wilt spread, yet this much
is certain the goverhment is facing
a far more precarious situation than
it did when nationalist bullets
struck down Erzberger in the Black
fores(. 1 months ago.
The emotion which marked the
brief addresses of Chancellor Wirth
and President Loebe before the
reichstag reflected sentiments which
were shared by many others, while
the rioting of the radicals through
out what was to have been a de
corous memorial to the dead foreign
minister reflected the feeling of
unrelenting vengeance vowed in be
half of the German proletariat.
Never did the reichstag witness
such scenes of turbulence and exe
crations. Dr. Karl Helfferich, the
nationalist leader, who attacked Dr.
Rathenau in a savage speech In the
reichstag yesterday, sat curled up
in his seat far to the right of the
house. He appeared to be in a very
depressed and somewhat fearful

President Loebe had difficulty in
