Chicago, 111., Aug. 15. Officers are
still groping in the dark in the Bar
tholin case. Only hope the police
have of solving the mystery lies in
the confession by Osjar Thompson,
who has created tho impression sev
eral times that he is ready to tell
all that he knows. Milton Edwards,
who fled to Denver a few days after
the murders were committed, arrived
In the city this morning and made a
statement to tho chief of police. His
story was a disappointment adding
nothing not already known. He said
that he left the city because he fear
ed Bartholin would kill him. He de
clared that Bartholin had no real
grievance against him, but seemed to
have cultivated a desire to kill him
for the mere sake of killing:
Edwards denied that he hypnotiz
ed or drugged Thompson. It is be
lieved Bartholin killed his mother
and then his sweetheart because the
girl discovered the first crime.

IS TURNED DOWN.
While There Are Several Richmond
In the Field, It Looks as If Scott la
the Choice Republican Editor
Are for Him.
Tho Orogon Dully Journnl Is dig
ging away ut tho truo conditions la
tho f ruatorlnl fight. It finds that it la
tho purpoBo to conter on u man from
Multnomah county nnd II. W. Scott
may bo tho man. Following Is the
latest version ot tho matter:
Wnltor F. Matthews, chairman of
tho republican stato central commit
too, Is quoted an Baying that tho suc
cessor to Joseph Simons to a Boat In
tho United States sonato must bo a
If truo as stated, that Chairman
Matthews has given out ns his ulti
matum that Multnomah county must
furnish a successor to Simons, what
then? Who of tho several aspirants
horo in Portland will bo prosontod
with a senatorial toga? Tho Mult
nomah legislative delegation, with lta
full strength ot 20 votes, will under
any nnd all circumstances prove an
important tactor whon It goes Into
tho business of senator making. No
posslblo combination could bo mado
that would leave so largo and Import
ant a factor out of consideration.
Who Will Be the Man?
Of tho Multnomah delegation, threo
Honators nnd 13 representatives wore
elected last Juno, nil candidates on
tho republican ticket. A good deal
wm said during and attor tho spring
campaign that Chairman Matthews
personally selected ovory legislative
candldnto, and secured a distinct
plodgo from oach that, If oloctcd,
tlioy would support the man named
by him for United States sonator
Such roport Is not true; at least In
Its ontirety. Thoro aro somo mora
hers of tho Multnomah delegation
who will never submit to dictation in
the Interest of some particular aspi
rant, but tho evldonco Is accumulat
ing that an effort will bo mado to
securo practical unanimity In the
Multnomah delegation so far aB re
gards a senatorial candidate.
People Want to Know.
Whom Chairman Matthowu favors
no ono appears to know, and ho Ib
giving out no tips just now. Some
say it Is II. W. Scott, othors consider
Solomon Uli'ach as tho man, whllo
thoro nro thoso who profess to be
lieve (hat tho dark horse bolng bo
carefully groomed In tho privacy of
political box stall, Is lona .-I liar
than Charles II. Caroy, prosont chair
man of tho republican city and coun
ty committee. In addition to tl.cao,
tho names of F. P. May, A. L. Af Ilia
and W. D. Fenton aro sometimes
mentioned While Chairman Matth
ews Ib content to koop discreetly bo
cret, tho growing interest that tho
sonutorlal question has evoked de
mands that somobody should show
his hand or- bo smoked out. Tho poo
plo nro wautlng to know who, besides
Fulton und Geor asplro to senatorial
honors, nnd they aro anxiously wait
ing to bo relieved of tho tonslon that
now distracts their minds during t
sultry, sticky, exauporatlng warmth
of summor's dog-day period.
Can't Be Whipped In Line.
It Is to bo believed that tho men
comprising tho Multnomah loglsla-
tlvo delegation are not to bo whipped
Into line to support tho particular
candidate of any man, The men
oloctcd to roprosent Multnomah coun
ty In tho next legislature will not
prove thomselves subservient to one
or moro politicians who have not the
public good bo much at heart as the
grinding of their own particular
axes. The people of Muitnoraan
county expect to bo fairly and well
represented In the next legislature
by thoso who have now such trust
reposed In them. Tho man to be -selected
to represent Oregon Jn the
United States Bonato must be repre
sentative of no faction, hut of all the
