A Compact Formed to Make
Speaker of the House of
B. L. Eddy, of Tillamook County, It a
candidate for the speakership of the House
of Representatives of the Oregon Legis
lature, under a compact entered Into with
Walter F. Jack) Matthews at the last
Republican state convention. He Is run
ning now under the management of Mr.
The compact Included a clause whereby
Eddy agreed to support H. W. Scott for
the United States Senate, or any other
man whom Mr. Matthews might want.
.Another reciprocal clause lh the compact
was that Mr. Matthews was to deliver the
solid Multnomah County delegation to
Eddy for the speakership.
Instructed observers of Oregon politics,
of course, draw this conclusion as abso
lutely logical:
In the even the compact be fruitful, Mr.
Matthews will control the appointments of
committees In the house, although Mr.
Eddy will handle the gavel. '
It will be observed that this assertion,
tallies with the exposure by The Journal
on Thursday of the game of duplicity that
Is being played by Mr. Matthews. The
clause In the compact for Mr. Scott, or
for any other man whom Mr. Matthews
might want agrees with the statement
that Mr. Matthews la ostensibly support
ing Mr. Scott while In reality he Is en
deavoring to align his forces for the re
turn of George W. McBride to the United
States Senate. ,
It will be remembered that The Journal
stated that there was no doubt that Sen
ator Mitchell Is honestly supporting C. W.
Fulton for the United 8tates Senate to
succeed Joseph Simon. It was alBO stated
that Senator Henry McGinn Is sincere In
his advocacy of the election of Mr. .Scott
to the United States Senate.
These two propositions stand absolutely
upon the basis of truth. Both of these
statesmen are playing fair with the men
to whom thev are pledged.
Ex-Senator McBride left last evening
for the East, presumption being that he
went on to St. Louis, where he has duties
as one of the United States commissioners
of ths Louisiana Purchase Exposition.
Ex-Senator McBride departed In the
knowledge that his lieutenant. Jack Mat
thews, Is faithful to the former's ambi
tions for re-election to the upper national
house, and that the sub-lieutenants of Mr.
Matthews are faithful to the wishes of
their chief, the astute chairman of the
state- Republican committee.
Where would C. W. Tulton throw his
support in the event he learned that he
ould not be elected to the United States
ThX Is a. question that ante tots- the
x-.j,Axji.xa,ii j, iiiiiii,
calculations of the politicians during these
days. The most plausible theory is that
he would ask his friends to vote for Sen
ator R. A. Booth,- of Lane County.
The friendship between Mr. Fulton and
Mr. Booth la known to be Pythian in its
character. They are such friends as
causes each to look upon the other In a
light different from the usual cold
blooded loyalty of politicians for politi
cians, who are accustomed to be grateful
for favors to be received.
Of late Intimations have been thrown
out by Mr. Booth's friends that the latter
would be pleased to enwrap his form in
a toga such as they wear who sit In the
American House of Lords at Washington.
There is a contingency, of course, for,
from developments. It is apparent that Mr.
Booth desires to see his Fidus Achates,
the polished, brilliant lawyer, statesman,
orator and legislator from the mouth of
the Columbia, stand In the nation's capltol
building as the compeer of Hoar, Quay
et alii.
The nature of the agreement between
Mr. Fulton and Mr. Booth is that:
Booth shall support Fulton .for the
United States Senate; that he shall de
liver the entire Lane County Republican
delegation to Fulton, Including the entire
support of Harris, of Lane, for speaker of
the house.
The hypothetical agreement, to be
drawn from the situation, Is that, if Ful
ton finds that he cannot Induce the legis
lative tailors to provide for htm a toga
a la United States Senate, Fulton will ask
his supporters to vote for Booth.
Does McBride come next, in the order
of preference by Mr. Fultote?
There are reasons .for .. belle vfnar thal Jhe
does. Of course, this involves Senator
Mltnhell somewhat inasmuch as Mitchell
is known to have said to his followers
that he wants C. W. Fulton to go to
Washington with him. It cannot be said
Intelligently Just now what attitude Sen
ator Mitchell would assume towards the
McBride candidacy. He remains faithful
to Mr. Fulton. He might agree to Mc-
Bride, yet no one knows about that, and
statement In the premises must perforce
be pure speculation.
However, it is aparent that there have
been negotiations between Mr. Fulton and
Mr. McBride. The latter has assiduously
cultivated the Astoria statesman, and
Mr. McBride is not a green hand atcul
tivating politicians, as witness his elec
tion to the United Status Senate after the
fierce Dolph and antl-Dolph fight in 1895.
One reason why The Journal has
rapidly .gained circulation Is that It Is

(Journal Special Service.)
BAKER CITf. Nov. 22. The ' oldest
piece of machinery In Eastern Oregon is
an engine and boiler that is now being
used for sawing sandstone where build
ings are being erected In this city.
Weatherbeaten, rust-spotted, tarnished
and shabby, the old boiler wheezes and
coughs and the engine leaks steam and
sputters, but it still does the work re
quired of it, despite 40 years of active
service in the wilds of the Northwest.
Its days of usefulness are not over by
any means and It does work that would
require 10 men with chisels and hand
cutting tools.
This old, dilapidated concern was once
the pride of the Northwest. When
Baker City was only a mining camp and
while most of the other cities of the
West were as yet unthought of this en
gine and boiler were dragged across the
plains and mountains by ox teams and
put to work at the hoisting shaft of
the Virtue mine. That was in 1863.
For many years It strained away at the
winch and brought the miners up from
the depths in their car. Then the shaft
became so deep that the machine no
longer had power to do the work. It was
sold and a new engine substituted.
From ihal time uti'H the present the
career of the bciler an 1 has Dcon
mottled. It worked in a sawmill, turned
the planes in a dressed lumber factory,
operated a rock-crusher, ground away at
a woodsaw, and now has changed its oc-

From outward uppearances the boiler

It Looks like It in New York at
the Present Time.
Success His Confirmed Him in the

NEW YOBK. Nov. 21. -Politics Is an
ever-live topic In New Voi, Scarcely
does one campaign pa befora plans are
instituted fdr the next. This fact Is em
phasised by the preliminary maneuver
ing already under way f r the great
mayoralty struggle of next year. As It
appears a year ahead of the election, the
situation Is distinctly f.iorab!o to the re
turn of Tammany to power. Despite the
fact that the -organiEmlnrt i year ago
was defeated, demoralized, disgraced and
left without a leader, it has aifaln dis
played marvelous powers of recuperation.
No one can deny that Tammany has
been rehabilitated In no small measure
by the recent election it has discovered
a new leader In Charles F. Murphy, who
haa.flne gift of silence and a level head.
Success has confirmed him !n his place
of authority. The old organization, there
fore, enters the. new year with renewed
strength and with the advantage of an
unmlstakeable reaction againt the re
form administration of the city govern
ment. There is no surer way to judge the
rapid growth of New York than by the
continual demand for rapid transit facil
ities. Even though the underground rail
road will soon be finished and the city
Is assured of the Pennsylvania tunnel,
there will be a demand for another sys
tem as soon as these are i:i operation.
Indeed, this demand Is already heard and
will grow in intensity as soon as tt Is
discovered that the subway and Pennsyl
vania, tunnel will ho more than meet the
needs of the present and will not materi
ally provide for the needs of the future.
The city is, in fact, renewing Jtself every
decade. Mayor Low has Just called at-tnJn-the'

so the march of progress continues.

which permits him to appoint a special

But he did not reckon on having

The Horse Show, which closes today,
is the most successful that New York

The church movement is at Its best In
New York this year. Now several Catho
lic clergymen in Greater New York are
advocating the building ITT this city of
the largest and most magnificent house
of worship in the world. As yet the
scheme is in embryo. But the plans -are
'sufficiently matured for the announce
ment to be made that the new edifice
will cost Jir.,0ft0,000.

Metropolitan Opera House during the

Duane Pell. This year, however he will
be missed, for following the example of
Anson Phelps Stokes, who deserted the
ranks fif society for the ministry two
years ago, he will be ordained to preach
next month. Mr. Pell Is well known in
club life in Manhattan and society will
miss him greatly.
- Next month tho National Civic Feder-
atlon's industrial department will hold
an annual meeting here. Nearly all the
members of the executive committee, of
which Senator Hanna is chairman, are
expected to be present. The l'ederatlon
has sent to 500 manufacturers a list of
questions relating to the employment of
labor, laws, wages, restrictions, organi
zations, etc., and the replies received to
these will be a feature of the meeting.
The problem of compulsory or voluntary
arbitration will alao be discussed.

Frequenters of Wall streot who have

that Its practice Is to quit the market

Its play has been almost cxilusively on
the short side for many weeks, but it
takes quick profits, covering one day and
selling the next if It deems the market
momentarily vulnerable. By shifting lis

pated 'monetary embarrassments and it
has had a tremendous advantage In the
