NO. 279..-TEN PAGES. SALEM, OREGON,TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1919. FORTY-SECOND YEAR By Hugh Balllle (United Press Staff Correspondent.), !' Washington, Nov. 25. Republicans and democrats today began actively or ganizing for the business of electing a president of the United States in 1920, Leaders were on the ground arrang ing for meetings of the democratic and republican national committees here January 8 and December 10, respec tively, to pick convention cities. - Press agents representing the can didates were also beginning to appear, armed with much literature. Announce inents of new candidates were expected to come Uiick and fast from the G. O. P. ranks within a few days, but the democrats were holding back. Issues Uncertain. There were many ideas as to what the issue would be. Miles Polndexter, senator from Washington and one of the first republican aspirants in the field, declared it would be bolshevlsm and that he would make his fight on a platform promising eradication of the "red" menace. " . ., Senator Lodge's expressed willing- ness to go to the country with the peace treaty as an Issue made it appear that he had presidential aspirations himself. - Senator Harding, Ohio, also a candi date, has not yet announced his con- ception of what the principal point of contention between the two major parties will be. ' 8ome Holding Back. Senator Johnson of California is un derstood to be planning his race 6n a "straight American" platform. Soma of the candidates who loom .biggest; such as Governor . Loden of .Illinois and General Wood, have not . entered the battle of press agents here as. yet, the inference being they are holding back until the situation Is a little more clarified. ' j . as- ior ine aemocrais, ine iuci iuiu none has come out for the candidacy . gav? strength to a report here that President Wilsonin spite of Informa tion to the contrary has not yet made up his mind with regard to making a third effort. With the treaty out of the way, there is little doubt that, in view of his illness and his weariness of public life, he would be willing to 'Step aside and not even participate ac tively in the campaign. Bnt if the treaty; is to -be the issue, the president may deem it his duty either to' head the ticket which supports ratification or take a prominent part in naming .that .leader and fighting for his elec tlon. McAdoo for Labor. -t W. G. McAdoo was seen today as a bidder for labor support if he becomes a candidate, in view of his telegram to Fuel Administrator Garfield, vigor- j out'ly supporting the miners wage de mands and opposing the ideas of let ting the public pay the increase. But McAdoo has not avowed his intentions and the other democratic possibilities, including Governor Cox and A. Mitch ell Palmer, are keeping very quiet. W. J. Bryan, although he has said he has no more political ambitions, is frequently brought into the situation when the democratic aggregation is being looked over. Many cities are bidding for the re publican national convention. They Include San Francisco, Chicago, As bury Park, St. Louis, Kansas City, Mil waukee and St. Paul and Minneapolis combined. For the democratic conven ventlon, Baltimore, Chicago, Indian apolis and St. Louis are among those bidding. GALLOWS URGED FOR POR TLAND MURDERER BY CORONER'S JURY land, Or., Nov. 23.

N. Burgess and C. E. F ."inger during the robbery of the tavern Iriday night. REPORT HE FAVORED lARMYil Portland, Or., Nov. 25. "We recom mend that David Smith, James Ogle and Walter Banaster be held for the willful and deliberate murder of J. N. Burgess and George E. Perrlnger, and we further recommend that capita! punishment be restored in this' state." j A coroner's Jury which probed the murders of the prominent Pendleton citizens at Claremont tavern Friday night, returned that verdict last night. "And if we had our way about It, they'd build a scaffold right here in the plaza block tonight and carry out these recommendations," announced one of the Jurors as the verdict was handed to the coroner. Miss Elsie Babcock, who was a member of the Burgess-Perringer sup per party at the Claremont, testified that ''as near as she could tell," Smith did the shooting which killed the Pen- dletonians. Miss Babcock was very nervous on the stand and swooned after leaving the witness chair. - Washington, Nov. 25. In connection; with press account sof his annual re port to the secretary of war. General March, chief of staff, today issued the following statement: "In the ticwspapere of Sunday! No vember 23, there appeared a review of the annual report of General Peyton C.: March, chief of staff, sent out by the Associated Press which credltea him with favoring an army of 260,000 men. This statement was entirely erroneous. The report of the chief of staff was a strong presentation of the necessity for an army of 600,000 men ana in eluded with it a copy of the so-called war department bill, which ia now be fore congress and which embodies Gen eral March's ideas as presented in his annual report This bill specifically states the number of men recommend ed an in no place in the report does there appear anything which suggests any other than an army of 600,000 men." - -- - Turkey Supply Short; Higher Prices Blamed With turkeys selling at 65 cents wholesale on tho Portland market, while only bringing 50 cents retail in Salem, the supply of Thanksgiving birds in; this city is going to be con siderable short of the . demand, in the opinion of market men. Up to the present time the supply here has been but little better than the early orders for the birds and it is expected that the eleventh hour rush wilt find the local dealers unable to supply all their customers. Most of the turkeys raised in this section are going to the higher market in Portland, whera the supply is also re ported short. . But scarcity of the birds is not the only, reason for the fancy, prices they are bringing, according to growers, although it ': a: big factor. High pric es of feeds has made a greater re turn ' neoessary. and has resulted in many farmers cutting down their flocks. Many who have formerly rais ed turkeys for the markets have eith er eliminated them from their farms, or are raising only a few for their own home use.
