Railroads Bound to Win
John L. Wi son Is Playing a Clever
Game and Is Fighting
The hidden hand of the Northern Pa

ton st:le pnllilcs, Is, the opinion of U. 8
Jeriud pollli. lull and prominent property
owner of liavton. Wash.. who is spend
ing the holidays In this city, a guest at
the Hotel Perkins.
The railroads are not out to be skinned
In in. cani-.aign for Senator." he said
this morning to a reporter for The J"l,r
nal, "and juu may bank upon It they will
There is no doubting the fact that
they mo honest In their support of Lvl
Anken: for I nited States Senator, but
they are determined to win. If Ankeny
cannot make the race and carry, the rail
roads will groom up a dark horse and
rush him throuKh. He may he nasiiess-Ju
In sei .et. He may talk and look like a
farmer He may be so well oiled P dlt
lcaHy that he will slip down the tlirouts
of the public. UN election may even
cause the cry that tile ral'roads have
been skinned. Hut. mark what 1 tell you,
the railroads will carry off the prize. "
Mr. Jera-.d Is not a niembtr of th?
Washington Legislature at the present
time, but he served two terms in that
body in the past. He will be on hand,
however, when the Representatives and
State Senators uather at (Mympla. and
will watch the battle for the mast, ry with
us much Interest its though he were able
to cast a vote In the affuir.
WILSON IS DESPERATE.
"Ankeny has the best of the race thus
far," he said, "but you must watch John
L. Wilson. That man is desperate, and
it is when he seems to be playing a los
ing game that he Is the strongest. He
has more lives politically than a cat, nnd
is as shrewd as Satan. He is not plan
ning for first choice, but la laying back
for the dark horse chances.
"McHrlde need not think he ha been
called from on high. The railroads will
never work with him and he canuo't suc
ceed without them There has not been
a political move of any significance made
In the State of Washington Tor years mat
the Northern Pacific was not behind It.
The railroad Interests arc not out to lose
and they will not lose.
"The attempt that is being made by
John L. Wilson to prevent a mucus Is a
shrewd one. it Is in line with the rest of
his pollcv. If he can prevent a caucus
and- stave "the matter Tiff-urtttl -it beirtns
to look like a deadlock, then he will stand
a mlghtv fine chance. The legislature
does not begin balloting for Senator until
January 2. and there is time yet for
much to Ik- accomplished by a determined
man with money. Influence and powerful
press support." .....
How long would tlja roitroads support
Ankenv in the-evPht of a deadlock?' vat
asked nf "Mr. Jcrard. lie said:
"1 said before that the railroads were
honest In their support of Ankeny. They
will stand with him until they gee there
Is no chance for his election. They will
put him into the position if they can."
CHANCES OF" DEADLOCK.
"What are the chances for a deadlock?"
"They are mighty good, if Wilson suc
ceeds In his present policy of preventing
a caucus," replied Mr. Jerard.
"I seriously question whether there can
be an election on joint ballot. Ankeny
would hove the majority, but It would
not be enough. That Is the belief of
Wilson, too. Preston cannot win on a
straight vote, and if Ankeny cannot, it
will then be up to the railroad people to
settle themselves upon a candidate who
will carry them to victory. Whether this
choice must be made In secret will re
main to be seen.
"Of course, I may have the situation
sized up a trifle wrong, and It may not
be necessary for a dark horse to be
brought Into the race at all. But It looks
as though an unknown man would take
the' office now."

ROME, Jan. 2. Secretary Hay has ad

The idea of a fraternal visit by the

John S. Knapp, special commissioner---,
Of the Lewis and Clark Fair, has been'
'ordered o'"'r'etWnfo''F6Ftlahd,' and ' im"
expected to arrive the early part of next
week. The only reason given for' this
act Is the statement that his wortc has
been completed, and that the directors
will want him for other work. The. leg
islative committee, under whose orders
Mr. Knapp has been working, seems to
be perfectly satisfied with the results
of his mission, and a,t Its meeting on
Monday will decide w;hether to employ
him any further or hot. If the decision
will be made In the affirmative, then thw
work will probably be to visit the vari

but has been notified to proceed to St.

are necessary for Incidental expenses
connected with establishing the exhibit.
The Indrapura, which will take the ex
hibit to Japan, is due to arrive tomor
