Geer Is Laying Low and His Friends
Walter P... Matthews, chairman of ths
Republican state central commute la
quoted aa saying that the successor of
4eph' Simons to a seat In the United
fftatew senate! must be a. Multnomah
county man. . " . ,.
By what authority. Chairman Matth
ewa arrogates to himself the right to
dictate who shall or who shall not be
senator Is, perhaps. Immaterial. By
some, few he Is considered a' 'political
oracle, but with many within the ranks
of his own party there seems to be 111
dlsgusted resentment over bis assump
tion of leadership. If true, as stated,
that Chairman Matthews has given out
as. his . ultimatum thai Multnomah
county must furnish a successor to Sen
ator Simons, what then? Who of the
several aspirants here In Portland will
be presented with a senatorial toga? The
Mirlunomah legislative delegation with
its full strength of 20 votes, will under
any and all circumstances prove an im
portant factor when it goes Into ths
business of senator making. No possible
combination could b. made that would
leave so- large and Important a factor!
, out of consideration. - JL
OS the Multnomah delegation 'three
senators and U representatives wer
elected last June, all candidates on the
Republican ticket A good deal was said
during and after the spring campaign
that Chairman Matthews personally se
lected every legislative candidate, and
secured a distinct pledge from each
that. If elected, they would" support
THE MAN NAMED BT HIM ,
for United States Benator. Such report
is not true; at least In its entirety.
There are some members of the 'Mult
nomah delegation who will never sub
mit to dictation in the interest of some
particular aspirant, but the evidence Is
accumulating that an effort will be
made to Secure practical unanimity In
the Multnomah delegation so far as re
gards a senatorial candidate.
Whom Chairman- Matthews favors no
one appears to know, and he is giving
out no tlpa just now. Some amy It ts
11. W.Scott, others, consider Solomon
Hlrsch as the man, while there are
those who profess to believe that the
dark horse being so carefully groomed
la the privacy of a political box stall is
no other, than Charles H. Carey, pres
ent chairman, of the Republican city and
county committee. In addition to these,
the names of F. P. May, A. L. Mills,
and W. D. Fenton are sometimes men
tioned. While Chairman Matthews Is
content to keep discreetly silent, the
growing Interest that the senatorial
question has evoked demands that some
body should show his hand or be smoked
out The people are Wanting to know,
who besides Fulton and Geer aspire, to
senatorial honors and they are anxious
ly waiting to be relieved of the tension
that now distracts their minds durlnr
the sultry, sticky, exasperating warmth
of summer's dog-day period. ' ,
It Is to be believed that the, men com
prising the Multnomah legislative dele
ARE NOT TO BEJ WHIPPED
Into line' to support the particular can
didate of any- man. The men elected to
represent Multnomah county In the next
legislature will not prove themselves
subservient to one or more politicians
who have' not the public good so much
at heart as the grinding of their own
particular political axes. The people of
Multnomah county expect to be fairry
and well represented in the hext legis
lature by those who have now such trust
reposed In them. The man to, be elected
to represent Oregon. in the United Spates
Senate must be representative of ho fac
tion but of all the people and one whoa
efforts will be directed in the Interest of
all the stats and not a particular sco
tlon thereof to the detriment of all oth
ers. . i;;:;.:,,-.
It Is said that an effort Is nqw being
made to bring , all the members of the
Xiultnomah delegation next September
for a conference on legislative matters,
when the senatorial question will be the
leading toplo for discussion. .The senti
ment prevails' that Multnomah county
should have a. strong,., vigorous candl-,
date for senator, one on whom all, the
delegation can uhjte and then stand sol
idly in his support j long as there Is a
1 possibility of securing the necessary ad

this afternoon, en route to Newport, oi '

days. The newspaper men have been dls -cussing
the proposition to adopt two res .
olutlons of the following Import:

newspaper man as United States Senator .
from Oregon to succeed Joseph Simon. .
One endorsing the Idea of electing '.

It Is believed that these resolutions will -go
before the association: tomorrow.
MEANING OF THE RESOLUTIONS. ,

This meaning Is conceded to be the) i
animating motive. Inasmuch as these gen- -tlsmen
are the only newspaper jnen .who
are candidates for the position mention-
ied. - ' '
It cannot be ascertained what, will be -the
fate of the resolutions, -4n the evens
they are offered, -as seems to be assured.

enact laws favorable to the newspaper',
people of the state. It Is desired to pro ''
vide different statutory regulations tor :
the publication of legal- advertising Bo
tlces, and in other ways to favor the;

The association will probably appoint sj '

to Salem for . this purpose. ' -t . -
THEY'LL HAVE FUN, TOO. ,

just how to extract Joy from the at
