THE OREGON DAILY JOURNAL. PORTLAND, WEDNESDAY EVENINO, DECEMBER 14, 1WM.
Editor Sought to Undermine
Hitchcock and Get Hi
WAS IN THE RUNNING
TILL HE THREW MUD
Now, It I Said, Scott's Hopes
of Becoming Secretary of
Interior Are Futile.
(Wa-'itnstcn Bantu of The Journal.)
Washington, Dec. 14. It Is stated on
high authority. that Harvey W. Scott, of
Portland. Or., desires to succeed Ethan
Allen Hitchcock as' secretary of the In
terior, and is bonding every energy and
bringing to bear every pull at his com
mand to that end; and the odd pert of
the situation, according: to this same
high authority, is that he actually had
at least a alight chance of being consid
ered until he was hoist by his own pi
It has been known in inner circles
here for sevetal months that Scott haa
been working steadily for the portfolio.
As the editor and part owner of a news
paper in Portland he passed current
with msny as a leader in Oregon affairs.
Finding that his usual methods were not
bringing the political plum to the
ground, he adopted tactics which It Is
said by those who have seen his news
paper are customary In his campaigns.
Ue sssalled with great gusto every act
of Secretary Hitchcock's, particularly In
connection with the land-fraud cases in
Oregon, presumably hoping thereby to
undermine the secretary of the Interior
and thus by making his reappointment
questionable in order to strengthen the
Scott claims for office.
The "politics" which seem to have
been used in the far northwest, as a
rule are frowned on In Washington. It
Is not considered the height of good form
to undermine a man whose place is being
ought, and such action becomes par
ticularly odious when the aspirant Is the
directing voice In a newspaper which is
used for such purpose.
Scott's candidacy, it is believed by
those who are familiar with the situa
tion, has been rendered absolutely void
by his editorial utterances.
Will TRY TO CHANGE
EMINENT DUMAIN LAW
(Special niipatch to The Journal )
Seattle. Wash.. Dec. 14. The first
thing taken up by the municipal con
vention when It met this morning was
a bill, which will be presented to the
I legislature for passage, changing the
state law of eminent domain. It pro
vides that when property is to be sold
for delinuuent assessment, on account
of condemnation proceedings within a
certain district, only such part of it aa
is sumcieni m paj iu. ola biwu
posed of. The purpose Is to prevent
money sharks from bidding the prop
erty In at almost its market value and
then charging JO per cent under the
law for the full period of Its redemp
tion. Most of the other bills which the con
vention will recommend for passage
to the legislature have to do with taxes
for public improvements, including a
special tax to be levied against state,
school and county lands for all abut-
ting Improvements, within cities of the
first and second class.
The meeting wllk adjourn and after a
banquet the delegates from all over
the state will return to their homes.
DREAM OF SEATTLE
MAN IS FULFILLED
(Special Dla patch to The Journal I
Seattle. Wash.. Dec. 14. Sunday
night Howard Cobb, who lives In a villa
on an island in the middle of, Lake
Washington, dreamed that his house
was on Ore and lie had a narrow escape.
The following morning he told his wife,
who reminded htm that he must not put
any faith in dreams.
Monday night about 11 o'clock Cobb
and his wife were awakened. The
house was full of smoke, snd it was
only after a hard fight they managed
to escape with their lives. The origin
of the flames is a mystery. At the
time the couple went to bed there was
no Are in the house, and so far aa they
are aware there was no one besides
themselves on the Island that night.

HUNTERS SEE WILD MAN
ON VANCOUVER ISLAND
(pedal Ptapatrh to The Journal.)
Vancouver, B. C, Dec 14. Word has
been received here of the presence of a
wild man In the vicinity of Home Lake,
Vancouver Island. Pour residents while
hunting Saturday rear the lake saw a
being In the form of a man. evidently
young with long beard and body covered
with balr. The creature was surprised
on catching sight of the hunters and ran
away Into the underbrush.
This startling tale leads back IS
years, when a young man disappeared
near Horn Lake, and was never found.
Old timers positively believe this Is the
me youth. Further inquiry Is being
made to substantiate the report and an
attempt is also being made to capture
the wild man.

So many people who have apparently recovered from an attack of La Grippe are stricken
with Pneumonia, This is due to the fact that the Bronchial Tubes and Lungs are left weakened
and unable to resist disease.

will not be susceptible to the development of serious 4ung troubles. Do not take chances with
