Lua received tho following letter from H D. Forncri, chief en

Asset Company ia made tip of many hundreds of Lane county
citisona, who uro interested in the project of building a railroad
from Eugene to the coact. Mr. Forneri writes:
Saratoga, Sept. 23.—The work of drafting a platform for
presentation to the Republican state convention occupied the
committee on resolutions the greater part of the night, and it
waa daybreak before the platform was completed.
The platform endorses the administrations of President Taft
and Governor Hughes; declares that the Payne tariff law has
been a success, and refers with approval to the work of the last
congress. It pledges a continuance of the state graft inquiry
‘‘until all wrong-doing capable of exposure shall be brought to
light.” The plank relating to direct primaries is very brief, but
admits of no misconstruction.
"We promise legislation which will enact these principles
into law” is the pledge.

THOMAS J. CONNERS
Saratoga, Sept. 28.—When the Re
publican state convention was called
to order today by Temporary Chair
man Roosevelt, the committee on
credentials reported no contests,
which elicited from the temporary
chairman words of congratulation.
United States Senator Root was nam-
ed as permanent chairman, and he
was escorted to the platform.
Senator Root spoke of conditions
in the Republican party, and said:
“If the trend of public opinion is
against it, we will change it. If old
supporters of our party have turned
under some idea that they can do
better elsewhere, we will show them
they are wrong. We will win. We
will gain the support of the people
of this state by deserving it.”
“We will stand together,” conclud-

United States district attorney of
New York, will be the nominee of
the progressives for the governor
