President Tells McNary and
Stantield 1 They Must
Reach Agreement
WASHINGTON, ;May 4.- (Spe
cial to The ' Statesman) No cus
toms collectors has yet been ap
pointed for Oregon. President
Harding told Senators McNary ana
Stanfleld Thursday that he" would
not ' make an appointment until
they have agreed on the man,
and they have nbt yet agreed"""
The above j Wformaflon from
Washington, leaves tbe"( matter of
a, collector for jOregon much in
the air, if, the Information is correct.-
It is : believed, however;
that the two senators have agreed,
and that the president .will' make
the appointment in' a fey days. T.
M. Ilurlburt of Portland appears
to be leading, though Jthere is a
chance for Wheeler present ap
praiser of customs. , .
While the; senate , confirms or
rejects the appointment, made by
the president; the main appointed
can go ahead and serve in the In
terim before the convening of the"
new congress, so there. Is little
daflger that th appointment will
be long deferred. ' r ; ;fi V '
