SECRET COMPACT EXISTS
between Senator Mitchell and H. W.
Soott, editor of the Oregonlan, in the In
terest of the latter being at the proper
time 'a Senatorial candidate.
If Senator Mitchell could have the nam
ing of his new colleague In the Senate
there is little doubt but his choice would
be Solomon, illrsch or George W. Mc
Bride. With the former he has been on
terms of closest Intimacy for 30 years,
politically and socially, and during all
that time Mr. Hlrscfo has never wavered
in his loyalty to Oregon's presenf Junior
EK -SENATOR McBRIDE
has also been one of Mr. Mitchell's
staunch political alliea and when the last
Senatorial election resulted in the success
of Mitchell, he. In returning thanks to the
Legislature, paid a glowing compliment to
Mcfirlde and stated the honor would hav
been mors worthily bestowed had the
majority given their -votes to the retiring
Senator and letting him become his own
successor. Bnt both Hirsch and McBrlde
are regarded as impossible, even with tne
weight of Mitchell's influence In their
favor, and the leading question in Oregon
politics now Is what will Mr. Mitchell do;
whose candidacy will he favor?

but there are enough others, all over-ripe,

MITCHELL THE DICTATOR.
Whoever Senator Mitchell determines
to favor for Senator will secure votes
that otherwise a candidate could not hope-
to gain. His Influence is to be reckoned
with in every stage of the campaign, but
whether or not, it will be so great as to
predominate Is a question not to be solv
ed thus early In the contest.
Senator Mitchell is
BESEIGED DAT AND NIGHT
with politicians calling, either to discuss
the Senatorial situation or seeking to ad
vance their own personal ambitiona In
the quest for office. He has only been In
Portland about one week and he doubtless
wishes the time of departure for the Con
gressional junket to Honolulu, of which
committee he is a member, had been fixed
at an earlier date, thus relieving him of
the constant strain he Is under and escap
ing for a time from tho crowd that
throngs about him seeking to get some
tip as to what he Intends doing and who
he favors for United States Senator.
