SAYS HE'S NOT
'. t AFTER MR. CAKE
PORTLAND, July 9. -The Tele
fram tonight says: So far as he ii
encerned, Senator Charles W. Ful
ton is not participating in any effort
to- have someone other than State
Chairman W. M. Cake conduct the
Taft campaign in the Fall. Also, he
resents the manner in which his
name has been used in this connec
tion; "I wish it distinctly understood,"
declared the Senator this morning,
"that I have had nothing to do with
the reported movement to unseat Mr.
Cake during the campaign. My name
fcas been used and it is said that I
am instrumental in an effort to re
move Mr. Cake. This is false. I have
so knowledge of such a move, and I
do not know who has been using my
name in the matter. It is unjust to
Mr. Cake and to myself.
"I do not see why there should be
occasion to have a new campaign
manager. I would be satisfied and
content to have Mr. Cake continue as
chairman and conduct the campaign.
How did the story start, anyway? .1
Lave been unable to run it down, and
all I know is what I have read in the
press. We want an active manager in
this coming presidential contest, and
Mr. Cake is an active man.
"But kindly make this emphatic,"
the Senator, "that I have
it qmr tlmp 11t1 (lertaken. insti-1
r ciroH to have Mr. Cake
supplanted by anyone else, and that
my name in this connection has been
used without my permission, consent
or knowledge. My name has literally
been dragged in, why I do not know."
The Senator came to Portland to
day on a business trip and to see
James R. Garfield, Secretary of the
Interior. When asked concerning the
nolitical situation in Oregon, the
Senator smilingly replied that
didn't know anything about it.

Chicago Police Troubled With
WAR AMONG THE GAMBLERS
The Explosion Shatters Windows
But Nobody Hurt Fifteen Cases
of This Kind During the Last Year
Without a Clue.
CHICAGO, July 9.-Terror was
caused in the Chicago Automobile
Club and In three five-cent theaters
last night by the explosion of a bomb
in the rear of 260 State Street The
six story building of No. 260 State St.
is where the two men, leaders of one
faction of Chicago gamblers, have
their offices and the bomb was set off,
apparently by the person who has
been responsible for the "dynamite
war" among gamblers.
The explosion broke every window
in the rear of the first floor of the
State Street building. Members of
the automobile club, which is directly
in the rear, facing the Plymouth
Court, though a gasoline tank had ex
ploded and fled from their building.
Audiences numbering several hund
red persons in the nickel theaters lo
cated in the same block where the
explosion occurred made a hasty exit.
In the hotels in the block similar
conditions existed. Guests fled into
the street and it was some time be
fore they could be induced to return
to their rooms.
The police were unable to find any
trace of dynamite or powder. The
oder of the burned gunpowder, how
ever, gave a clue to the cause. '
Last winter there were no less than
fifteen similar explosions close to
buildings occupied or owned by the
different gambling interests of Chic
ago. The police have never been
able to find the parties responsible.

In the reports of the recent great
conflagrations such as overwhelmed
Baltimore and San Francisco, and in
the investigations of detached tires,
it is found that brick is an excellent
I'lrenrnnf material, savs a writer in the
fireproofing number of Cement Age,'wi" .undoubtedly be the best in the
New York. If it were practicable; to
construct a building with walls, floors,
partitions arid roof of brick, and with
weight carrying members encased m
courses of brick laid in cement mor-'
thp result would nossiblv be a
fireproof structure. It is not practi
cable, however, , for reasons that are
manifest. The use of brick in certain
construction means loss of floor
space. In the walls it means loss of
light. In brief, it is both cumber
some and costly as a structural ma
terial to use brick. A substitute pos
sessing all its virtues as a fireproof
material, something vastly more eco
nomical and quite as durable, is found
in concrete. Concrete means conser
vation of space, increased lighting
facilities, low cost, absolute resistance
to fire and water, rapid construction,
which in turn means economy for
labor as well as material"; great rigid
ity and the ability to withstand earth
quake as' well as fire. It is adaptable
for foundations, walls, floors, window
girders, beams, roofs, doors, window
frames and stairway. From the
foundation to the peak of roof or top
of tall chimney, a building may be
constructed entirely of concrete.
