Nelson Tells Of
Dangers Of Student
Principal J. C. Nelson of the high
school addressed the students of Wil
lamette university yesterday on the
subject of student government, which
is being actively discussed by the stu
dents as a near possibility. While not
wholly opposed to the idea, which he
says has numerous advantages, Mr.
Nelson warned them against an au
tocracy of the students which might
be more absolute and unfair than any
ever conducted by a faculty. He also
insisted that before the students ask
for self-government they should know
Just what they want and be ready to
take the responsibility.
In Plentitude Are
"Take a good look at that dollar.be-
fore you pass It on!" This is the warn
ing issued by Salem banks as a result
of an influx of counter feic coins that
have appeared In Salem during' the
past month. , , ,
Since March 16, about 30 of the
bogus coins have been discovered. The
exact extent of the spuriouB circula
tion has not been ascertained, but lo
cal authorities who are instigating
ask that general co-operation be ex
tended by turning the bad money over
to any bank, city or county officer.
, The leaden coins that have been de
tected to the present time bear a va
riety of dates 1882,1892, 1893 and
1902 being most common. E. B. Mil
lard, of the Ladd & Bush bank, de
scribes . the "phoney" " as follows:
"Weight poorly guaged; -milling,
heavy and easily betrayed to finger
touch; coins are apparently of the
same" casting and are thicker than the
genuine; is silver plated but has the
'greasy feel, Instantly perceptible to
experienced coin handlers."
So be careful In exchanging the sil
ver discs. Sheriff W. I. Needham or
Chief of Police Welsh will appreciate
any assistance given by Salem or Mar
ion county residents whonre made vic
tims o" the counterfeit.
Party Slates In .
Efforts of the Salvation Army to
raise $13,300 in this county when they
begin their campaign next Monday
were unanimously endorsed by the
Central Trades and Labor council at
Its meeting in the labor hall last night.
Endorsement followed a brief talk by
A. C. Bohrnstedt, chairman of the
county campaign, who set forth the
alms and desires of the Salvation
Army in this campaign.
Salem's quota in the campaign Is
$5000, Mr. Bohrnstedt told the repre
sentative union men. He said that he
would like to raise this much "or a lit
tle more because there certainly is no
more warrantable cause than this.'
Boston, Apr. 28. The oraglnza
tion slates of republican and demo'
cratic candidates for delegates at
large to the national conventions were
elected by substantial majorities In
yesterday's preference primary, ac
cording to the complete vote today.
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge led the
republican "big four" who headed
the ballot as a grbup. He was fol
lowed in the order named by Speaker
Frederick H. Glllett. of the - national
house of representative, '. former Sena
tor Murray Crane and Edward A.
Thurston, former chairman of the re
publican state commltee.
The democratic "regulars" were
elected by majorities of three ano
four to one over former Congressman
Joseph F. O'Connell who made his
campaign on an anti-prohibition is-'
sue. Those elected are Senator David
I. Walsh, Richard H. Long, twice dem
ocratic nominee for governor; District
Attorney Joseph C. Pelletler and Dan
iel F. Doherty, ;..
Of the 35 republican delegates. In
cluding those at large, 29 are un
pledged but several of these have an
nounced their intention to vote for
Major General Leonard Wood. Two
are pledged to Wood and four were
described on the ballot as favorable to
him. The entire democratic delega
tion is unpledged.
The "big four" republican candi
dates cairled 24 of the 38 cities.
Former Governor Samuel W. Mc-
Call who declared himself in favor of
the nomination of Herbert Hoover,
made his best showing In Revere,
where he finished third.
No other republican aspirants for
the presidential nomination made a
campaign in Massachusetts. During
the campaign Senator Hiram John
son's headquarters repudiated indorse
ments of certain candidates by John
son local organizations.
Returns for district
were Incomplete. Republican results
were known only in five districts,
which elected five Wood delegates,
four Johnson and one unpledged. In
complete returns from six other dis
tricts showed a close vote but Indi
cated election of eight Wood, two
Johnson and two unpledged delegates.
Complete returns from the 12th dis-
trlct showed that Johnson had ob
tained two more district delegates,
bringing his total to six as compared
to Wood's four. .
In this district both Johnson and
Wood candidates far outstripped two

Edge and Joseph S. Frellnghaysen,

oponents. Former Governor Edward
W. Stokes, pledged to' Wood, seems
assured of third place. Former Act

pledged to Wood, is leading in the race
for fourth placo, although City Com

Frank Hague of Jersey City and May

Democratic voters did not have an op
