Candidates for President of Up

They were all on hand at the re
publican resolutions conference, the
aspirants for president of the Htate I
senate and for speaker of the house. I
There was much talking in the hotel J
lobbies and dining- rooms, but most
ly the confabs were held in hotel
On hand and looking after their
fences and hoping: to advance their
interests for president of the senate
were K. I. Cusick, of Linn county;
B. L. Kddy, of Douglas county; Gus
C. Moser and Robert K. Farrell of
Multnomah county. The eastern
Oregon group of state senators, the
hold-overs, were much in evidence
and they listened to talks from as
pirants and said nothing. There is
a gentlemen's agreement among the
eastern Oregon senators to the ef
fect that they will all go together
to some candidate, but thus far they
have not made a commitment.

Judging from reports. Mr. Cualck I

then comes Mr. Eddy and Mr. Far

intimates east of the Cascades, Mr.
Moser was tryinft to see if he could
line up any of those votes, but was
Informed that the eastern Oregon
crowd will stick together and will
not break away.
Current in the lobbies was the
report that there is an understand
ing among Senators Kddy, Farrell
and Moser that at a showdown of
strength the one with the strongest
backing will have the support of
the other two. This rumor was
stamped as being without founda
tion, but nevertheless it was circu
lated. I Moser is supposed to have two
votes in addition to his own, and
Eddy four besides himself; Farrell
three In addition to his own; Cuslck
six and his own.
Settlement I. Postponed.
The presidency of the senate will
not be settled until after the Novem
ber election. There are several con
tests in sight, and these will, nat
urally, affect the fortunes of the
various aspirants for president.
Charles Hall, recently defeated can
didate for the republican nomination
for governor, was talked of as a
prospective candidate for senate
president prior to the special session
last December, but his experiences
in the primaries and the election
contest have eliminated him as a
possibility. Furthermore, one aspir
ant declared that Hall has pledged
him his support for president.
Also there were at the state
conference the aspirants for speaker,
these being T. B. Kay of Marion
county, Denton G. Burdick of Des
chutes, Jefferson, Crook, Klamatn
and Lake counties; K. K. Kubli of
Multnomah, and Tom T. Bennett of
Coos county, he being listed as a
dark horse, and Herbert Gordon r.f

Mr. Kubli says, emphatically, that

several more votes in reserve on

next speaker unless a considerable
number of his supporters are de
feated in the general election, which
is possible, but not probable.
Others seeking the speakership
agreed that Mr. Kubli has more
pledged support than any other can
didate, but they refuse to concede
that he has enough to win at this
time. This attitude on their part
is logical, for If they admit that Mr.

With the closing of the 16th
rnnual county fair of Clack
amas county ended one of the best
exhibits ever assembled in the
county. A movement is on foot by
the management to have the 1923
fair even larger and better than this

novel features will be introduced.
Among the new exhibitors at the

who won prizes on his Shropshire
sheep. Mr. Doerfler won seven
prizes, five firsts and two seconds.

of Holstein cattle and Duroc-Jersey
swine, carried oft a number of
prizes. He received the largest
share of the Holstein prizes, and
among these was first on Sir Colan
tha Genevieve, a 4-year-old bull,
weighing 2300 pounds. This animal
has won first and grand champion
in other show rings. Jumbo Sensa
sational. a Duroc boar, owned by
Mr. DeBok, won first prize. He
also was awarded first prize for the
best exhibit of livestock.
A- D. Gribble, breeder of blooded
Jerseys, had a handsome herd of
animals. Among these was a prize
winning 7-months-old calf. Several
of the animals at the county fair
were taken to the state fair. Mr.
Gribble will exhibit eome of his
Jerseys at the coming international

GASTON, Or., Sept. 30. (Special.)
The recent rains have softened the
ground so that the farmers are able
to resume their fall plowing which
was interrupted by dry weather.
Prune picking was delayed a few
days but not much harm was done
to the crop. Hop picking was about
over. The harvesting of the grain
crops on the 80O-acre Wapato lake
tract had just been completed and
the sacks hauled into the warehouse
before the rains. The oats were
mostly cut for grain and the aver

Amendments to Prevent
FAULTS ARE DISCUSSED
County Clerk Beveridge Declares
"Watchers" Should Go on
Duty When Count Starts.
A few simple amendments to the
law providing1 for the dual election
board system will safeguard this
plan from fraud, according to Joseph
W. Beveridge, eounty clerk of Mult
The grand jury, in its report, criti
cised the dual counting system, hold
ing t hat it gave greater opportunity
for the perpetuation of fraud than
the old system.
County Clerk Beveridge has con
ceded that this is true, mainly for
the reason that "watchers" desig
nated by either candidates or centra!
committees of the two political
parties are not permitted to attend
the counting that is made while the
polls are open.
But to overcome this feature
County Clerk Beveridge has advo
cated that watchers be sworn to
secrecy in the same manner as are
election officials and that such
watchers remain in the counting
room until the polls are closed.
Another change that County Clerk
after the first 20 votes have been
cast. County Clerk Beveridge favors
a change so that the counting board
could tabulate votes as fast as they
are cast, eliminating the 20-vote
clause in the law.

"If the counting begins at 2
o'clock in the afternoon it would
save the county a large sum of
Beveridge has suggested is that
counting not begin until 2 o'clock
in the afternoon. Under the law,
as it now reads, the counting begins
money at each election, and it would
also cave a half day for the members
of euch boards." said Mr. Beveridge.
"There are not many votes cast in
the morning as a rule, and after a
rush between noon and 2 o'clock
there is another lull in voting
"The counting board could begin
at 2 o'clock and would have all
counting done by the time the rueh
began at 5 o'clock. And by work
ing along, the majority of the boards
could conclude their tabulations by
midnight, as is the case now, and
the members would not be required
to work into the we hours of the
While the judge of each election
board is required to keep careful
watch of the count made by the
chairman of the board, nothing is
said of this watch in the law provid
ing for the dual election board sys
tem. Amendment la Proposed.
Mr. Beveridge has suggested that
the new law be so amended that it
will carry a section in it covering
this feature, so that possible fraud
would be thus prevented.
"Counting machines are the real
solution." declared Mr. Beveridge.
"but with the county faced with
the financial problems that beset it
at present there is no use in talking
about purchase of voting machines
now. Thedual election board sys
tem is the next best method, and if
the present law is amended so as to
include the protection that I sug

be no more fraud in the day count
ing than could occur when the votes
are counted after the polls are
ROUND-UP AT PENDLETON
PRAISED AS WORK OF ART
Oregon and Whole Northwest Ought to support Annual Pageant,
Declares President of State University.,
EUGENE. Or., Sept. 30. (Spe
cial.) P. L. Campbell, presi
dent of the University of Ore?
ton, who has Just returned from the
Pendleton Round-up, declared that
the Pendleton people themselves do
not realize what a big thing they
have in their annual festival. He
believes that it needs only to be
more widely known to hold as sig
rlfioant a place in relation to his
tory "as do tjie major European fes
tivals and community plays that at
tract visitors from all over the
vorld. The round-up is not a wild
and crude western improvisation, he
declares, but a work of art of su
preme excellence, a pageant un
equaled for sincerity, proportion
and genuine beauty.
President. Campbell has lived in
the west virtually all his life. He
came to the coast when a boy of
3 in an old "thoroughbrace" Concord
coach, the type of frontier romance
which his father used as an immi
grant wagon. There was no Pen
dleton when the Rev. Thomas F.
Campbell drove his family across
the ranges of eastern Oregon. Since
then President Campbell has visited
every part of the northwest, but
until th's year he had never found
time in a busy life to see a Pendle
Psfntrj BIk Surprise.
"I had scarcely, a conception of
what this Round-up was like," said
rresident Campbell. "I went ths
year because I thought the Round
up was a typical manifestation of
western life that ought to be seen
etore it disappeared forever. I ex
pected something rough and ready,
a fair picture of a passing phase of
the frontier. What I found was
something entirely different.
"Lying back of that Round-up is
rhe whole history of American fron
tier civilization. Into it go the lives
cl' three generations, and they are
'mportant generations of American
history. It is not a stunt; it is a
pageant, and a very beautiful and
dignified and sincere pageant,
springing from the united effort and
pr'de of a community. It is the
creation of the community; every
person in Pendleton contributes his
part in the spirit of volunteer
"To witness a thing perfectly
done is a memorable experience for
anyone. The Pendleton Round-up
teaches the ideal of standards. The
supreme excellence of the riding,
the roping, the picturesque group
ing, the supreme'point of cold cour
age where but an inch separates
life from death, represent the ac
cumulated skill of lifetimes. And
the women were quite equal to the
Art ConnealH Art.
"The greatest surprise to me was
the beauty of the whole festival.
I has heen done so many times that
management has become a fine art.
There was never a wait, never a
prolongation that spoiled an effect.
I. was the art that conceals art.
Exploit followed exploit with a per
fection so practiced that everything
s-emed merely casual. The wonder
ful grace of the horses and the
riders, the gorgeous colors of the
1,-dian tribes in their full war
regalia, the co-ordinated skill of
such achievements as the quadrille
on horseback, were as beautiful in
uetail and effect as they were mag
nificent in their setting.
"In the 'Happy Canyon I expected
to find the ordinary 'trail' or 'mid
way' of a world's fair. Xothing of
the kind. It is a beautiful pageant
o? the finest conception; there is
nothing in the United States to com
pare with it. It opens in its moun
tain setting with the fairies sug
gesting the spirit of Nature; later
c vne the Indians and the pioneers.
The great stage drop, the largest
I ever saw, changes to the street of
a mining village, with its cowboys
and miners, its stage coaches and
gamblers. The dancing floor, the
games, the wheel of fortune, faro,
and roulette, where imitation money
is risked, sink into their true pro
portions; they are stage settings,
.nemories of the background against
which the larger history, is worked
out in the pageant.
Kndlraa Skill Kvldent.
''Cleverness and endless skill, the
gradual yearly perfecting of this
annual festival which is so close to
riie pride and ambition of the whole
community, are evident in every de
tail. "The Round-up owes much to the
Indians who take part. The wealth
aevoted to this pageantry is sur
prising. The colorful native cos
tumes represent hundreds of thou
sands of dollars.
Ttoy Raley, the first president
ot the Round-up. was the author of
the Happy Canyon pageant and gave
i'. the original impulse, and the
whole .community of Pemileton,
working through the years, are
-.ually its creators. They have
achieved almost. I believe, without
realizing it themselves a genuine
work of the highest artistic value.
"The state should be awakened
to the asset it possesses in this fes
tival. Social scientists have been
emphasizing the high value of com
munity co-operative effort when
tie results can be raised to a plane
of artistic perfection and have been
Tiemoaning its comparat've absence
in American life. At Pendleton we
f nd just what has been missing.
From rough and ready beginnings
the Round-up could easily have de
generated into something crude and
over-comereialized. But something
essentially aesthetic in the com
munity spirit saved the historic and
svmholic values and rreated of this
