HOBO POETS LOVE
I RUNS SMOOTHLY
lis Not the Raging, Torrential
Kind, Says Kemp, but, Oh!
Like a Great, Easily Flow
New York, Sept 4. Harry Kemp, the
hobo poet from Kansas, who broke up
Upton Sinclair's happy home, today told
the story of his love for the first time,
and also gave his views on marriage
and the like.
"I had been struggling to make my
little vcflce heard, but without much
Success," he said, "when one day about
four years ago, while 1 was at the
University of Kansas, I had a letter
from Sinclair praising me for my ef
fort. 'Correspondence Is Started.
"That started a correspondence be
tween us, and. he lnvltedjme to visit
him at ArdenrTSuTTTwas not until six
weeks ago that I found it convenient
to come east Then I beat my way on
a cattle train as far as Buffalo and
"paid my fare the reBt of the way.
"From the first It was apparent that
Sinclair were not in harmony with
each other, although each tried to be
civil to the other. Mrs. Sinclair and I
were extraordinarily sympathetic, find
log In the other the complement to our
selves; at least I found in her my per
feot ideal. There you will appreciate,
I must drop the curtain."
"Hav you ever before thought you
had found the Ideal love?" the reporter
ventured to ask.
"Smoothly mowing Biver."
"Oh. yes," he replied without a tre
mor, "but It was nothing like this. Two
years ago I thought I was in love
I was for a time but compared with
my love for Mrs. Sinclair the other
passion was like a raging toVrent, while
this is a great smoothly flowing river.
"This hue and cry that has been set
rap over Astor is nothing short of hu
miliating to people who have bxains
and mental courage. Not Astor, but the
Judge who forbade him to remarry,
should be crucified. Because Astor has
decided to give himself to one woman
to love and cherish he should be palsed,
not censured. Because his first union
was a failure la no indication that the
one he Is about to enter into will not
be a complete success.".
"But how many chances would you
give people to find their soul matesT"
again ventured the reporter.
"As many as are necessary," the poet
phllosbpher responded. T
Sees "Happy Stats."
"When society has the courage to
confess what so many people now admit
privately, that our moral standard Is
utterly wrong, and rises to its true!
height; when women rise from the semi
concubinage In which they are still
held by men, then few mistakes will
be made; but where they occur It will
be understood that it is . eminently
proper for the unfortunate couple to
separate and seek their happiness with
more congenial mates. In fact in that
happy day i.t will be regarded as noth
ing short of crime to do otherwise.
"In that perhaps not far distant day
young people will be taught the perils
and duties of sex as a matter of course.
They will be shown to choose their
proper mates. Perfeot love will evolve
a perfect race, as" it has been attempt
ing to do through! the ages and has
succeeded in doing in sporadic cases.
Everybody knows it, but hardly any
body dares to mention the fact that
many great men were born out of wed
lock. "What am I going to do now? Stay
here like a man and see this trouble
as the world still mlstaklngly votes It,
through to a finish. What Mrs. Sinclair
will do In the end remains for her to
determine. She must decide whether I
am the man who fulfills her Ideals. If
the so decides I shall be very happy,
but I am only one party to the con
tract, and I cannot speak for her. In
the long run I know we shall both be
happy, for we are not fettered by man
made conventions and shall forever be
free to choose the mate that fulfills our
UTOPIA'S FOUNDER NOT :

VOTERS TURN DOWN
PORT OF BAYOCEAN
Port of Bay City .Is Ready to
Issue Bonds; Suit Holds
Up Port of Tillamook.
(Special to Tbe Journal.)
Tillamook, Or., Sept. 4. Hope for the
Immediate Improvement of Tillamook
Bay and bar were shattered yesterday
when the voters of three precincts
failed to ratify the petition to establish
the Port of Bayocean. Opposition on
the part of farmers, who think that
with railway service there will be no
need of waterways, was responsible for
the defeat of the petition. The port as
planned would have been permitted to
Issue bonds to the extent of $100,000
for harbor Improvements. It Is prob
able that another effort to establish a
port at Bayocean will be made as soon
Reports from Bay City say the Port
of Bay City Is prepared to issue $226,
000 In bonds to carry out the harbor
improvements suggested by the board
of army engineers. The board's plan
Involves the construction of a Jetty at
the north side of the bay entrance and
the deepening of the middle or "ship"
channel in tbe bay at a cost of $814,-
000, of which sum the local communl
ties are to pay one half. This plan Is
severely criticised In many places be
cause of the large percentage of the
cost demanded of the two ports now es
The Port of Tillamook has been-held
up temporarily by a suit brought In the
circuit court by farmers who oppose the
Improvements. The port voted to Issue
$450,000 In bonds and has contracted
for the sale of $160,000 worth. The
sale Is contingent upon the termination
of th suit in the port's favor. The
case will be tried this month and will
probably be presented to the supreme
court at its October term. R. R. Duni
