OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
CONTAINS MANY DIFFICULTIES.
Washington, Jan. 13. Whilo tho
sonato has labored to mask tho truth,
the fact is that next Tuesday Theodoro
Boosevelt, William H. Taft, Theodoro
P. Shonts, John F. Stevens and. inci
dentally, John F. Wallace, are to be
arraigned and tried bofore the none too
impartial judges who constitute tho
senate committee on interoceanic can
The trial is to be called an investiga
Hon, but it means simply that every
supposed pcandal, every petty criti
cism, every report of friction between
officials, even' story of an unearned
Balary, every tale of a discharged em
ploye and every fleeting bit of gossip is
to be told in public, and from them all
the members of the committee expect
to get possibly some of them hope to
get the basis for a direct charge of in
competence, or it may be of guilt.
There is not a soul in Washington who
believes that anything will come of the
Investigation save the knowledge al
ready held that some of tho heads of the
enterprise havo bad their bickerings
and their disagreements.
It may be that in the course of the
hearings the public may learn the real
reason for the resignation of Mr. Wal
lace. It may learn whether or not
there was any truth in the reports of
friction between Mr. Taft and Mr
Shonts. It may learn whether or not
Poultney Bigelow drew tho long bow,
but that anything substantial can come
from the investigation no one in his
It is understood that the greatest lat
itudo will be given in the matter of
asking questions, and, if curiosity about
personal differerences between officials
is to be considered one of the chief
things which it is neceeeary satisfy,
the senate and the people may havo
their fill of satisfaction.
Tho senate declares that President
Roosevelt practically challenged the
investigation and that it has been de
cided not to deny him. There was
nothing for tho president to do, appar
ently, in the present condition of af'
fairs, except to "challenge" an inves
tigation. There h a feeling in Wash
ington that he took the course that he
did to win eventually the right to con
duct the canal construction unhamper
ed by a commission of seven men.
If the result of tho investigation
leads to the statutory abolition of the
canal body, it may be that trouble and
rumors of trouble will disappear and
that tha work will go forward, showing
that a strong hand is behind it.
BLAMES ALL ON MOROCCO.
German Delegate Says Minister Mis
understood "French Minister.
Pans, Jan. 12. With the approach
of tho Algeciras convention on Moroc
can reforms, the newspapers devote
greater space to discussion of tho ques
tion, ruuiic opinion everywhere is
that tho issue of the conference will bo
amicable has been practically decided.
The Journal's Madrid correspondent
Bends an interview with tho Germa am
bassador at Madrid, Ilerr von Rado
witz,who is also the principal German
delegate to the convention. The am
bassador, the correspondent says, has
no doubt of the favorable issue of tho
conference. He believes the whole dis
agreement ib duo to the Moroccan min
ister's not understanding or misinter
preting the words of the French minis-
tor to Morocco, willfully or otherwise,
and Bays if the bultan's delegates try to
prevent an agreement being reached by
the powers, as it has been suggested
they would do, they will find them
selves in a most eerious situation. But
the ambassador is of the opinion that
the Moroccan delegates fully appreciate
this and will give no trouble.
Oreeon Stato Primary Law Hard for
Candidates to Follow.
Salem Anothor very sorious prob
lem hna arUen in connection with the
direct primary law. The law requires
that candidates for stato offices shall
filo petitions from not less than soven
counties, and that at least 10 por cent
of tho precincts shall bo represontod in
each of tho seven counties. Two por
cent of the votes cast at tho last state
election for supreme judgo by each par
ty must bo represontod on the petition
It has beon tho supposition until re
cently that bo long as tho required
number of counties and precincts wore
represented by tho signatures of one or
moro voters that tho bulk of tho signa
tures on a petition to make up tho
por cent might como from ono county,
so long as tho required numbor of names
was filed with tho secretary of stato.
It is now discovered that there must bo
2 per cent of tho voto cast by tho party
represented in each county and precinct
represented, as well as throughout tho
Tho attornoy general will probably
bo asked to render an opinion in regard
to tho number of signatures required
from tho counties and precinctB. To
secure 2 por cent of tho voters in seven
counties, and 10 per cent of tho pre

ceive this week copies of a bill ad

Riga, Livonia, Jan. 12. News has
just reached this city of a daring ai
tempt of the revolutionists to capture a
military train conveying a large sum of
money from St. Petersburg to Libau.
A band of revolutionists having ad'
vance information gathered at flazen
pot, burned two bridges and tore up
the track. Two companiesof infantry,
which were escorting the train, left the
carp, and were joined by a detacliment
of dragoons. This forco marched against
the revolutionists, who from behind
improvised defensee, opened fire on the
soldiers. The infantry, after firing two
volleys, wheh killed 05 and wounded
nearly 100 of tho revolutionists,
charged with the bayonet, and the dra
goona completed the rout by sabering
all the revolutionists they overtook.
