Action of Captains'.' Caucus in

tion to name a new colonel of the Third
regiment to succeed Colonel C, E. , Mc
Donnell, who recently resigned, .until
after the encampment at American Lake
early in. August That Lieutenant Col
onel Poorman and several officers of
companies stationed outside of Port
land are deeply chagrined 'over the ac
tion of the Portland captains In hold
ing what they call a clique caucus,. at
which it was agreed to vote as a unit
for Major L. N. Dunbar for colonel .of
the regiment, is apparent -

those of us who had been -excluded from
the conference to come in and make

that he should be elected to fill the
vacancy caused by Colonel McDonell's
resignation, and that he would be Justi
fied In refusing to call an election to

American Lake encampment'
Tt Is -not known whether Lieutenant
Colonel Poorman will go to the length
of refusing to call the officers together
in time to elect a colonel before the
annual encampment,: but It la known
that several officers of companies out
