And, though he is warming to some
degree" he "has not yet thawed suffici
ently to tell whether he is going to be
a candidate for governor when he gets
back from his Eastern trip, now that
George L. Baker is out of the way.
Kelly "doesn't know,"' he says, and he
adds with gnilelessness ;and disarming
candor that this statement is "just as
honest as anything he ever said."
The fact is, perhaps, that -the devel
opments of his Eastern trip, and the de
velopments of the political situation
while he is away will have much to do
with enlightening bis mind and fixing
bis determination upon his return.
KELLY IS WJLLlifO
Kelly has been: looked Upoh as a po
tentiality in the gubernatorial field for
.11 this time that the politicians have
been checking over the list and guessing
vbo will get into the running by the
time the entries close.' . Friends of his
contend, and Kelly has not objected to
the contention, that be would like to be
a candidate - and to- be governor, , but
whether the like would , cryita Use into
the effort has been a Jnattef of doubt
and, uncertainty. -I - it.'- -
- One big hurdle in the way. of the
Kelly candidacy.' up -Ho this time, has
been- the expectation, that George Baker
wouldbe a candidate, and two Port
land candidates depending In great
part Upon the same centers of support
would not have been good strategy. Now
however, the announcement by Baker
that he would not be in the race has
toppled that hurdle over, leaving the
track that much clearer for jielly'e run

What the developments, for the rest
of the week may be. Including the ex

Yamagata, 85 years eld and in failing

had bean called the real ruler of Japan.
In politics and policies and government

- The "genro" were a group of inten who
took charge of things when Japan rushed
pell-mell out ' of medievalism into
modernity a little more than a half cen
tury ago. They so entrenched themselves
that they , became, for all practical pur
poses, the' government.
Tamagata was the last survivor of
the original genro group. No other per
sonality can revive or maintain the
genre. - - t '
Tamagata fought through ' the recon
struction wars that accompanied Japan's
emergence from isolation over 5 years
ago. He made Japan's modern armies.
He was the father of, uaiversal military
service. He fought through the Chinese-
Japanese and the Russo-Japanese wars.
He created and commanded cabinets and
parliaments as well as armies. He
fought all his life, in war or in politics.

That the city could legally build a por
tion or the Inta trunk sewer outside
the corporate city limits 'and assess a
portion t the cost to the county dis
trict drained; is the opinion of Frank S.
Grant, city attorney, read this morning
at a meeting of the city council. -:
Grant said the state law provides for
such proceedings and legalises them and
that liens on property delinquent have
priority over all others ave those for
general tax. He pointed out, however,
that the council would have to take into
consideration tha value of the property
and its ability to stand the assessments.
Any failure of collection, he said, would
have to be made up by the general fund.
Such a procedure, could be taken to
court, be said, by the residents of the
outlying district on the ground that the
benefits and costs might not be in ac
cord. In such a case, -gpe pointed out.
an : adverse decision would place the
burden of the Improvement on the gen

' That the . Improvement be made with
a portion of. the cost paid by the gen
eral fund and an ordinance passed re
quiring tia -residents of the district to
pay "the cost if at any time they should
wish to become a part of the city, is
one solution ot the problem, be said.

SHIP MERGER PLAII
INIMICAL TO LOCAL
Tatriotism was the foremost plea of
sponsors of the Facifkf coast -Bhipptpg
merger .at the conference t held - in ' San
Francisco recently, but that patriotism
was riredicated upon a plan to take over
the ships of the United States merchant
marine at 10 cents on the dollar." -
T&i8 statement was made before mem
ber of the Ad - club- and -the ' Foreign
Commerce, club at their luncheon, today
by H. B. Van Dusef , president of the
Chamber of Commerce and member f
the Portland eommittee which attended
the merger conference. The address was
the first public announcement of what
took place at the ship pool meeting, v
We found the cards siacked, every
thing cut and dried and then the press was
excluded so the complaints ex no one
could be heard. said Van Duier. Some
ef the things which COS plan proposed
to do were to ask the government for
long term credit, low interest rates, the
issuance of mail contracts, the army and
navy supply contracts and the placement
af naval reserves on the ships on a
cooperative paying basis." ,
vn Dnxer said the Portland commit
teemen felt that the same Interests
which had attempted to hold back Port
land were behind the plan and that the
Portlanders .refused to indorse the mer
mt nlan on this basis. He said that
Portland wonld stand ' upon its consti
tutional- lights to obtain ships upon the
same basis as a merger could ootain
them whether this port entered Into the
agreement or not. !

commerce the roads bad been bullt at a
