Alex Sweek said today:
"1 am not in favor of forming a po

candidate at Xhis time. It Is too, early
to decide which would be the best man
for a national oandidate. ' There are
Hearst, Bryan, Cleveland and other clubs
throughout the country. These are all
premature, as I think that there is time
enough for organisations of this kind,
when more is known of the issues and
the policies which will be advanced,
and some idea can be farmed of the man
who is most representative of 'the prin
ciples that will be presented in the next
platform.
"To all fusion I am radically opposed,
and think that it is bad politics to at
this time split the party into different
factions and have these make a fight for
some particular man. They should all
work in harmony and fix on a leader

work for his' election regardless of: fac

Jackson day is the anniversary of the
battle of New Orleans, fought January
8, 1815, when Andrew Jackson defeated
Sir Edward Pakenham and the English
forces. It was Andrew Jackson, the
seventh president of the United States,
whom Democrats regard as peculiarly a
type of their party. During hts long
public career he served as supreme Jus
tice, one term as congressman from Ten-j
nessee, two terms as senator, two terms
as president and -at one time- served as
territorial governor of , Florida. His
military record helped to make history.
He successfully led the campaign against
fche Creeks at Talladegan in 1813, at
Emuchfan and Horseshoe Bend in 1814,
was the hero of New Orleans, was the
commander " against the 8emtnolewars

It Is now known positively -that the
city officials conducted a most search
ing examination of the slot machines
previous to Mayor Williams' announce
ment that they must be done away with.
Agents were out . collecting evidence
quietly, and it was upon the reports
they made that 'the orders came to put
the machines cut of. business. ..
Qne feature of the agents' work was
to 'discover., what the .. chances ,. were
against the player with the money ma
chines, for the agents of the machines
loudly proclaimed that , their apparatus
was not a "sure thing game.".
The agent reported to the mayor that
the net profits of a machine In a down
town saloon amounted to $600 during 46
daysWn-whieh a tally waa-ept-on-lta
operation. "' , .
If any concession is made It will prob
ably be to allow the merchandise ma
chines the privilege of operating on a
restricted scale. -
The chances a player has when he
drops a coin Im a money machine can
be deducted from the following sign.
which is placed in a downtown slot-ma
chine shop: ,
"Slot Machines of All" Kinds Made On
a Percentage."
This placard has attracted much at
tention. ',"
E. O. Magoon, one of the large slot
machine owners, visited Mayor Wil
liams this morning and had a long talk
with the city's ehiet executive. He
wanted to reach some, sort of under
standing by which the machines could
remain in operation, or arrange some
concession which would be satisfactory
to the city officials, but pothlng definite
was done. The mayor is believed to be
already firmly convinced as to the merits
of the proposition, and his recent ac
tions would indicate an unchangeable
determination to put the money-paying
machines out of business absolutely.

JAPAN'S STSEirOTZ. :
flattering Statement Kade Bsgardlng
uoaoiuons oz Mikado's Forces.
: "Should war break out between Russia
and Japan," says Commander J. D. Jer
rold Kelley, United States Navy, in the
unicago Tribune, "no extensive land op
erations can be undertaken until a naval
battle has been fought to settle the 'com
mand of the sea.! What. then, does this
muchworn phrase mean? Without ad
vancing any undue claim for the supreme
Importance of sea power, it may safely
be asserted that this command of the
sea, furnished by ships, and sailors, is the
paramount condition whereon the era
ployment of land forces In time of war
depends.
"What then, are the conditions that
exist today, and what will be the prob
able disposition of the contending en
ergies? In the new theatre of war the
naval forces of Russia and Japan in the
umna seas are in displacement and ton
nage so nearly equal that the Japanese
superiority measures less than 9,000
tons displacement. These small odds are
discovered In armored cruisers, as in bat
tleships the Russians have a tonnage
greater by more than 1,000 tons.
"But relative naval strength 1 not
measured by else alone, and this appar
ent equilibrium disappears when the
higher speed, the greater homogeneity
in type, ana, as a whole, the more mod
ern character of the Japanese fleet Is
considered. Then. too.i-JaDan has a
great strategic advantage in the extent
and situation of her base of supply and
equipment In the immediate readiness
of a reserve, and In the availability of
nsnermen ana other seafaring person!
to replace tne waste or battle and of dls
ease.
'The crews of both fleets are secured
by conscription, but Russia has of late
Men forced to employ her rural classes.
while Japan has over 2,000,000 of sea
Dred people on whom she can depend for
the personnel of her squadron'.
"It can. safely be assumed that In
courage, physical fitness and endurance,
and In discipline, training, and self-devo
tion the enlisted men of the two conflict
Ing fleet are equal. Nor can there be
any great difference between the officers,
as they are, in the main, highly educated,
scientifically trained In the art of war,
ua unco io tne sea. .
Japan Ships Superior.
"A well known expert, comparing the
battleships of .both sides, says: y
" 'I think it may be said that in point
of homogeneity, of weight of metal, of
protection, ana or speea, the six Japanese
snips are superior to the eight Russian
snips ,
"The probabilities of a sudden dash at
the outset must be kept in mind., as
Japan has of late been a keen believer In
Taudace, toujours l'audace.' It is fair
to assume Japan's first move will be to
attack the Russian fleet so that the
waterways to Korea and Manchuria may
be . open to the passage of the army
corps. She hopes to. land on the penin
sula and on the mainland.
-In order to effect this with the ce-
lerity that spells success Japan has al
ready mobilised her troops and is making
arrangements for their transport. This
embarkation, will probably take place
from the southern shores of the archl
polago, undoubtedly in the vicinity of
"The problem of entering Korea wiH
be a more difficult one than that solved
in 1894. For six weeks after the Japa
nese rorcea at Seoul, Korea, had marched
for Asan and had scattered the opposing
troops like chaff, her fleet cruised off the
Chinese coast, engaging the attention of
an enemy that was ill prepared for such
g sudden crtais. Their design,' writes
Major uuiweu of the Royal artillery,
was to cloak the movement of a great
field army from the Japanese ports 'to
the Korean shores, and in this the efforts
of the cruiser,, squadron were signally
successrui. A constant stream of troops
poured across the intervening channel
with no interruption from the Chinese
ships of war.' The result of the ensuing
operations is well known,
A Xiong and Bitter Boad. .
"The Russians will; it is certain, make
better use of their sea power than th
Chinese did, and there will probably bM
no idle promenading off Dalny, Port Ar
thur, or Vladivostok by ; the Japanese
while Russia is placing a waiting game.
"Japan will have this time to fight
ror her high road, and a long and bitter
roaa it may prove to be. Kyushu prov
ince will see some stirring-scenes, and
here undoubtedly will be the area of
Conflict at "any event, m" the early
stages. This is no place to dicsuss the
question of the. alliances that may com
plicate tne situation, though with Great
Britain's fleet behind her, Japan's suo
cess In the east would be almost certain.
"But this would relegate the Manohu
rlari and Korean questions to a place of
minor importance, for-the entrance into.
the quarrel of Great Britain and France
must shake the foundation of European
governments' and transfer the seat of
war to other seas.
"Even thin country, which, next to
Russia and Japan, has the most import
ant interests in Manchuria, may, through
the rights granted us by solemn treaty
with China, have to insist upon our priv
ileges. This stfrely would be a most
serious phase- of the question, but it
must be faced."

Notwithstanding the warlike prepara
tions which are being made in the Far
East, chartering of sailing vessels at
Portland continues. The German bark
Maadalene was chartered hi mnnilni
by the Portland Grain company at 20
o carry a cargo or wneat to the United
Kingdom. -The vessel Is now lying at
San Franclsoo, where she arrived on
November. 21, after a passage of 140
days from Newcastle-on-the-Tyne.
The Magdalene has a het register of
2,732 tons, which means that she is
capable of taking out about ,000 tona of
grain. The Andorlnha is only about 400
tons greater in size, and she is the
largest sailing . vessel that ever came
up the Columbia river.
Negotiations are also under way by
local Shippers toward chartering the
French bark La Bruyere, and the prob-
abilities are that the deal will be closed
before night Her owners are also ask

a European port She is at Port Los
Angeles, having reached there Decem

Bruyere has a net registered tonnage
of 1,7$$.
If war la declared exporters are con
fident that charter rates will be mate
rially advanced, and this Is undoubtedly
the reason that tonnage engagements
are being) made at this particular time.
For a couple. of weeks past there has
been a lull in the charter market not
only at Portland, but at every other
point on the coast The great trouble
has been that the market has been over

Upon such a state of facts' as this no
man could be convicted of any crime if
given a fair and impartial trial. After
the transcript was made by the sten
ographer of the court and I had gone
to the city of St Louis, Mo., to cover
certain rulings made on the motion for
a new trial, a false entry was added to
the record which I attached in my brief
filed in the supreme court of Kansas. I
ma4led-a-copyfhe-4rief-to--the irlal
Judge and wrote him a letter from St
Louis, calling his attention to the entry
and to the fact that he knew the entry
was false and a forgery, and appealed to
him to correct it
i Trial Judge Vindictive.
He never replied, yet he knew what I
had written was the truth, and from
that time to the present he has been a
vindictive enemy of mine. After the
cause was reversed the judge volun
tarily told me that he would give my
brother a fair and Impartial trial and
that I need have no fear. The county
attorney, Mayo Thomas, 1 who had just
been elected to the office, also informed
me that .he had read the record; that
there was. nothing In the case; that he
w&uld see that my brother had a fair
trial and that he would be acquitted. But
was deceived by both the judge and
county attorney,' and my brother was
again convicted of manslaughter in the
second ' degree at the May term of the
court, 1903. A motion was made for a
new trial and set for a day later fn the
term, and my brother was allowed to go
to his home in the Indian Territory,
Out Off by High Wateif.
Before he could return he was entirely
cut off from the court by high water,
and the court Issued a bench warrant
for his arrest and forfeited his band.
As soon as I could communicate with
my brother I wrote the judge, sheriff
and. clerk of the court requesting them
to fix his bond and informed them that
he would surrender the , moment that
the amount of the ball was fixed. I was
again Ignored by all. of these officers.
but wrote them several letters after this
begging them to fix the bond. In the
meantime, knowing that he would not
be granted a new trial by the trial

Discharged' in Saa franolaoo. :V
Upon a writ of habeas corpus I was
discharged by Judge Cook of San Fran
cisco, after a full investigation, he hold

were absolutely void and failed to
charge me with any crime. On a dupli
cate of these proceedings they have just
tried to secure a writ from Governor
Chamberlain, to take me to Kansas, for
persecution instead of prosecution. The
Oregon statute "requires the governor to
Investigate the legality, of proceedings
of this kind before he honors a requisi
tion, and the governor of this state,' be

papers, refused to issue a writ for my
extradition. I did not conceal mv
brother, but would have done ao If it
had been necessary, and a man who
would not would be harshly judged by
hts fellows and I would have been guilty
of no crime against the law if I had .
concealed, my .brother.. This statement
