The bishop remained only long
enough to tell the committee he
was no longer a voluntary wit

questions whatever unless sub
poenaed. He had " refused to tell
the committee of his 1928 activi

Senator Walsh, democrat, Mon

Letters Being Sent Out Now
To Be Followed With
Personal Calls
James W. Mott said Thursday
that he would soon begin an act
ive campaign for the speakership
of the 130 house. He began this
week writing letters to all candi
dates sure' of seats next January,
seeking their support. Mr. Mott
for three sessions represented
Clatsop county and this year poll
ed the greatest number of votes
in Marion county.
Mott concedes that Frank J.
Lonergan had something tike 30
Totes pledged to him at the end
of the 1929 session' for the 1931
speakership, but declares this
strength of the Portland candidate
has been broken up by results of
the May primary election.
LonergaM's Strength
Hit by Primaries
"Only about half of Lonergan's
pledges will return to the legis
lature," Mott said. "Some failed to
be nominated and some were not
candidates for nomination. Among
the large group of certain mem
bers who are at liberty to sup
port whom they please, tbe knowl
edge that Lonergan doubtless
would organize, or attempt to or
ganize the house against George
Joseph, isn't doing Lonergan any
good, so it seems to me that bis
chance for election to the speaker
ship has crumbled. These members
are assuming, of course, that Jos
eph will be governor."

occupied by himself. Emmet How

As Big Surprise

Honored by National

The tariff bill ran up against
four insurmountable barriers in
the senate today but hurdled a
fifth In the house and tonight was
back in conference for the fourth
time awaiting correction of its
rate sections.
After Vice-Presrdent Curtis had
upheald four democratic points of
order against the conference rates
on cheese, watch, jewels, rayons
and a provision relating to tem
porary, free entry of cattle from
Mexico and Canada for pasturage.
the house defeated 181 to 140, a
minority proposal to Instruct
house managers to accept the sen
ate's free listing of hides, leath
ers, and shoes.
The decision on the poiflla of
order automatically returned the
bill to conference. Both houses
reappointed conferees and Senator
Smoot, Utah, chairman of the sen
ate conference committee, said he
would call a meeting tomorrow in
the hope the corrections could be
made and the bill reported to the
senate tomorrow or Monday. Sat
urday usually is an off day.
Move for Free
Leather Surprise
While the vice president s deci
sion was no surprise to "republican
leaders, the move in the house for
free hides and shoes came unex
pectedly. After the branch agreed
to another conference with the
senate, Rep. Garner, Texas, min
ority leader and a tariff conferee,
made the instruction motion
which lost by 41 on a record vote.
The senate had kept the three
leather commodities on the free
list after failing In four attempts
to write a scale of duties accept
able to all sides. The conference
agreement carries the house rates
of ten per cent on hides, from 12
1 to 20 per cent on leathers and
20 per cent on shoes, all now on
the free list.
Loud cheers and yells greeted
Speaker Longworth's announce
ment of the vote, the first record
ballot to be taken in that branch
on these controverted levies.

tinue to operate independently as
he has done in the past few
weeks. It is the natural thing,
he agreed, for the group which
stepped out to organize a new
church. Payne stated he has
warned bis friends in tbe First
Baptist church not to leave it on

to get in and help the new pastor
or to get out entirely and not
hinder progress of the First

Included in the list who have
withdrawn are a deacon, a trus

promises to be an excitingelectlon
of school board directors Is cir
culation of petitions for L. J.

of the board for the past nine
years. Simeral did not decide to
run until late yesterday, when two
groups immediately began circul
ating petitions for him.

the school clerk yesterday, but it

ending four terms of service, Mrs.
Roy Keene, Dr. B. F. Pound and
Arthur H. Moore.' Henry CarL

that he would not make the race.
With both Simeral and Olinger
expected to be in the contest, a
lively election is predicted. It Is
a safe! bet, however, that Olinger
will lead tbe entire field as ex
