United Statea Senator Elmer J. Dur
kett of Lincoln, Nebraska, the youngest
member of America's Millionaire club,
ts in Portland and stated today that
he to.-k little stock in the war talk be
tweon Japan and the United States.
"Japan doea not want to go to war,"
he said, "neither does the United States.
They have nothing to fight about, so
why should they have a warT"
Then the senator, who is a neighbor
and close personal friend of William
Jennings Bryan, entered upon compli
mentary talk of Orecon cherries, rasp-
Derries ana other fruits that he had
eaten for breakfast "The rherrlea I
had (or breakfast were as large as wal
nuts and required two bites, he said.
"If I ever leave Nebraska I want to
come to Portland and make my home."
"No city I have visited has such a fine
park as Portland's City park, and the
Forestry building; Is Immense. I never
saw a log I could not look over until
I went to the Forestry building. Ore
gon Is truly a wonderful state.
"Who will be the next president of I
the United Btatesr he was asked.
"That Is something I do not know. I
firmly believe Frenldent Roonevelt waa
sincere when he said he wouin ni i
candidate for reelection next year. How
ever, I found In every plaee 1 visited a
strong sentiment In his favor whloh
may ultimately result In forolng him
"Bryan will undoubtedly be the next
candidate on the Iemooratlo ticket.
Fairbanks, Taft, Knox and Cannon have
been Dut forward as candidates on the
Republican side, but whlah one will
land the nomination Is extremely un
certain." flnator Burkett then inquired about
ssveral of his former colleagues from
Oregon, including senator uearin, oen
