this morning th Oregon Development

sloa that followed was crowded with
business. The features differing from
yesterday's gathering were that there
were a number of new delegates who ar
rived last evening, and there was an In
creased earnestness in the face of all
when the business of todsy'a meeting
wsa taken up. Men prominent in official
and mercantile life, and .farmers who
know the resources of Oregon as no on
els knows them, were there with ideas
. formed from years of practical ex per 1-

Dan Halarkey Wants Pre-

FORCES MAYS' HAND
The Utter Is Expected to Be the
Machine Candidate, But Is Not
Eager to Announce His Po
' V - siUon Yet
Dan J. Majarkey, who upset th plana
of the Republican machine in the county
convention last spring, broke the legis
lative slats and forced himself on the
ticket aa one of the nominees for state
senator from. Multnomah oounty, la plan'
ning another coup. Having been elected
senator, he le now preparing to be
come a candidate for president of the
senate. ' . .
Maiarkey broke the news of his own
oandtdacy a (ew days ago to arena r.
Maya, who haa been credited with being
himself a tentative aspirant for the
honor of presiding over the upper house
of th legislature. Thue far. However,
Mars haa refused to declare himself
positively In the race.
"If you are really a candidate your
self, Pleroa," said Maiarkey. "1 wUl be
for you. But if you are not. I am going
after it. Multnomah, oounty la entitled
to name the president of the senate and
I want th office if you are not in the
Presumably , the declaration was not
altogether welcome to Pierce Mays, who
found himself confronted with the neces
sity of either becoming an avowed can
didate or ot withdrawing altogether
from ths race. Mays baa been regarded
aa the probable choice of the Matthewa
machine for president of the senate, and
If he could aecure the support of the
seven Multnomah senators he might be
a formidable candidate. But alnce the
June election the machine haa been
sorely discredited, and its aid la of
doutful value.' Senator C W. Notting
ham would refuae to vote for anyone
who was avowedly backed by the ma
chine and there are probably a number
of senators from other parts ' of the
state who would take the came course.
Mays' chances ' will not be enhanoed
by declaring himself, at this stage of
the race, aa a candidate But Maiarkey
is rather insistent In his demand tor a
definite statement of his colleague's po
sition, and if it shall not be forthcoming
he will not hesitate long before openly
entering the 'lists. : Dr. Kuykendall and
George G. Brownell have been canvass
ing for several months and are losing no
opportunity to add to their strength.
If a Multnomah man is to get the of
fice, his campaign, cannot be delayed
much longer. There will be 26 Republi
cans In the next senate, and as the
choice of president will be determined In
caucus, IS votea will be enough to elect.
Including two joint senators, Multnomah
county haa seven senators and if their
votea can be bunched for any candidate
he will have a atrong prospect of win
ning. It Is possible that Maiarkey might get
the solid Multnomah delegation If the
machine should become reconciled to his
candidacy, but he le by no means per
aona grata, The memory of the defeat
which he administered in the county
convention still rankles, Furthermore,
Maiarkey Ms regarded aa "dangerous."
He cannot be relied upon to take pro
gram with the unhesitating obedience
that the machine la wont to exact and
on several momentous occasions hs has
jumped the traces sttogether. A notable
Instance was the contest for United
States senator In 1901, when the failure
of Multnomah county to name the sens
tor was laid by msny st Mnlarkey's
door. He refused to tske the orders of
the bosses, with the result that the dele
gation divided and ita strength wss dis
sipated. It haa, been customary to elect the
president of the senate from the hold
over senators, snd Maiarkey will doubt
less meet with some opposition on the
ground thst he Is a new member. He
Is. however, an aggressive competitor
for any office which he seeks and his
ability was demonstrated In the lower
