Charles W. Fulton la the only openly
avowed candidate for the aeat of Joseph
Simon In the United Btates Senate,
whose 'term of office expires March 4,
Theodore T. Gear. Oregon'a Chief
Executive, claims to be the candidate of
the Republican party, under provision of
the Mays law, providing for an expres
sion on the part of the people aa to
their choice for - Senator. Fulton and
Geer, then, are the two prominent candi
dates; both are out in the, open.
Senator Fulton, la buoyantly confident
over his chances of ultimate succesa.
From his point of view his election is
an absolute certainty and he counts
ENOUGH REPUBLICAN VOTE8
to insure his Jbejng the caucua nominee.
There'a the rub! Will there be a cau
cus, one that will be considered binding?
If so, there must be at least 46 Repub
licans participating In it, all agreeing
to abide absolutely by any declaration
of. the. majority, JffbJJe Senator Fulton
is optomfttic in Ufa views," admttilng no
possibility of failure,- there are others,
no unconsiderable number among the
Legislative membership, who are not in
clined to take so roseate a view of the
situation as does the Clatsop statesman
and hia following.
Two years ago Senator Fulton, by
every political artifice at hia command,
sjcoeeded in -keeping out of the caucuses
a score or more of RepubUcana, and, then
claimed that no' leas than 44 members of
a party could, constitute a binding eau
cus. In making thia claim he had'

members to elect a Senator could bind
the action of any of its participants.
If Senator Fulton haa, as he claims,
enough votes to elect dim, there will be
no caucus. The separate vote In both
houses on the day appointed for such ac
tion will settle 'the Senatorial " question
and all remaining -to be doat jvlU be the
