Jack Matthews Awaits
Senator Mitchell's Com
ing With Uneasiness, ;
Slipped i few Cogs la the June EIcd
Hon and a Smasbup Is Threat
ened In the City Election ' ;
Republican politicians are jtwaltlng
with interest the homecoming or Senator
Mitchell, who Is expected to arrive this
week from Washington. There Is much
curiosity as to the view he takes of the
crushing defeat administered to the local
Republican maohlne In the June elec
tlon, when the party candidates for the
two- most important offices - in : the
county were overwhelmingly , defeated,
as well as one of the most conspicuous
of the machine candidates for the state
legislature. ,
It Is an open secret that the relations
between Senator Mitchell- and Jack
Matthews, the local boss, have been far
from cordial for a long time past The
senator probably appreciates the : fact
that the defeat of the Republican can
didates for sheriff and district attorney
waa largely, If not chiefly, due to their
known affiliation with the .Matthews
machine, and that the machine -has been
badly crippled by the loss of these Im
portant offices and the patronage which
they control. This,' coupled with- the
circumstance that future elections, will
be conducted under- the dltect primary
law, so that 'the power of the maohlne
Ut manipulate nominations will be tiU
most rttrovd, will mturftlly erreatly

' The election of C. tv. Nottingham to
the state senate over A A. , Courteney,
the regular nominee, waa another body
rblow to the machine. ' Nottingham made
his campaign as a Roosevelt-Mitchell
Republican, and an ppponent of the
Matthews machine. He had no organ
isation behndbtm and hla reliance was
upon his past record and the Independ
ent vote. . His election was such a blow
to the machine as it has seldom received.
- Much importance- 1s attached- to Mac-
thews failure to- name the new post
master. The opinion Is freely ex
pressed that he will be unable to keep
Charles Burcknardt In the office as as
slstant postmaster- mora than a few
months at most. ; ''
kTew City Oovernment Wanted.
Another Important element In the sit
uation Is the strong; prospect of another
defeat for the Matthews machine In the
city election next spring. There Is good
reason to expect that the Independent
voters of both parties will, nnlte In the
demand for a city government which
shall be free from . all alliance with
either the gamblers or the - machine!
Such a demand can be made effective
through the direct primary law.
The scheme devised before the elec
tion to amend the city charter at the
next session of the legislature, a to
oontlnue the present municipal admin
istration until lua. has been effectively
scotched. A majority of the-Multnomah
delegation to the legislature are pledged
to oppose any such tinkering with th
charter, so that there is but little dan
ger that the Job will be attempted.-
Several - prominent - Republicans have
declared that tbey propose to make It
quite plain to Mitchell that Matthews
and his - lieutenants were - directly re
sponsible for the defeat suffered by the
party In, June. . , '

According ' to Oeorge Nelson,-one of
the-sailors who . wss on boardthe
American schooner Zampa. Which went
aahore at Leadbettar point yeaterday
morning at o'clock, the accident was
caused wholly .. through -.. carelessness.
Mr. Nelson arrived 'In I the city from the
scene of the wreck this, mortlng. ' In an
endeavor to save the ship he sprained
his back while lifting, and will spend
the next few days In a hospital. -,
Mr. Nelson said this morning;' "The
rudder was not broken while the vessel
waa out at sea. Ths rudder was all
right untty it struck the rocks on the
beach. So far as I am able to judge
there 'Is no reason that the vessel should
have gone ashore. I. think that in his
snxlety to reach the mouth of the Co
lumbia river , -Captain- Kallenburg ' was
careless. Long before we got Into the
.breakers' we could ' see the lights from
ths beach, and. at that , time the schooner
was 'eaally icontrolled. - -But we kept
working toward the shore and were , In
the. breakers, before, anyone was aware
of It.' Then it Was Impossible for us to
put to sea. and tbe vessel rapidly drifted
to destruction. ' "7."''

time, but there was, no .necessity for us
to get Into such a predicament had a
