Thursday. October 3 1912 Judge Albert D. Norton!, who is runnuig for Governor of Missouri on the progressive ticket, is Italian descent. In Washington circles., it is reported that Wlliam Loeb, Jr., Colleotor of the Port of New) York, is being considered for the office of President of the Washington Railway & Electric Company. RpDublicans claim that, in the same proportion that sentiment for President was lukewarm at the be ginning of the campaign, it is strong now. Chairman Hilles savs that both the Eastern md Headquarters xre flooded with letters daily from Progressive and Democrats who are doDpiner to Taft as the best man for prosperity. When leader Charles F. Murphy of Tammany Hall and his delegates move on Syracuse tomorrow for the avowed purpose of renominating Governor Dix of New York to head the Demo crats nf that State thpy will Bud al ready intrenched there a solid phalanx f of indenendent Democrats headed by William G. McAdoo, vice-chair man of the Democratin national com mittee. It is said that MoAdoo will rat try to persuade the Tammany- Boss to drop Dix. and if he refuses, party split will result. Because the Single Taxers of Ore' gon have been endeavoring to bolster ! up their cause by Inferring and de ! claring, it is said, that the Portland Young Men's Christian Assoclatio. is for Single Tax, there Is every in dication that grave dissension. Is brewing in that Institution. H. W. Stone, secretary of the as sociation, is a Single Taxer, and has allowed meetings to be held In the association favoring the Single Tax propaganda. Stone, however, de clares that his leanings are merely personal, but do not Influence the association In any way. Y. M. C. A. Said Non-Political "The Y. M. C. A. is absolutely non political," said one of the Y. V. C. A. officials the other day. "Mr. Stone has his ideas, but they have noth ing to do witih the association. Per sonally I am opposed to those views and I resent the idea that seems to be abroad that the Y. M. C. A. is for this scheme for it Is nothing else but a scheme." Despite this disclaimer a number of Portland business men and friends of the association throughout the state declare that if the Y. M. C. A. Intends to nter the field of politics, or become interested in tax schemes, they will withdraw their annual sub scriptions. Stone May be Hushed. The fact that the Y. M. C. A. owns one of Portland's skyscrapers and wants to dodge taxation on the build ing, may account for the stand Stone is taking," said one of these. "How ever, I want to give fair warning that should the Y. M. C. A. give further opportunity for gossip over the state by espousing, either whole heartedly, or half-heartedly Single Tax or any other political issue that should be kept out of religion, I shall not only withdraw my own subscription, but shall hope to Induce my friends to 'go and do likewise.'" tl Probibly the last chance during e present administiatiun for civil ians to reenre commissions in the Jnited States army is offered in an rder just issued from the War De mrtment for examination for cand' lttes for these p'ares, at all army iris, beginnns Januaiv 15 next. The acmcies will probably number about fiftv. Candidates most he between twenty-one and twentv-seven years old. i po The New York SnffrasPttes are preparing to give a big drama and Hence in the interest of their cause. It will probablv not take place antil next January- b the votps-for-wntuen wcrkrs are very bnsy trving to find out where the dominant parties stand on the question of woman suflrige. They are making plana to take their fiaht to Congress next winter and will need funds f r the cnuse. The drama to be eiven by the sntfraenttes is "Lyeistiata," the Aristophanes' comedy, with Lawerence Houseman's translation. So deeply does the Ssnate committpe investigating Ctmpaigu contributions inteud going ino the n.at'er that it reported at Washington, where the inquiry is resumed today, that Miss Bliss, daughter of he late Cornelius Bliss, treasurer of the Republican Natimil Committee, might be sub poenaed to supply dtails that her brotl er.

For exrnple, the exportation! of wheat and flour from Washingop, Oregon and Califor n'a for the fiscal year ending Jnne 30th, 1911. amounted to $20,226,000, while daring the same period oar peo vla sent east, for life insurance prem iums, $21,662 000. or over 11,400,000 more than our exoortations of wheat and flour brought in. Any of these U rje states have life insurance com panies that can give as good contracts in all respects . as tht eastern com panies. ' The mnney paid to Oregon companies stays io the state and helps to develop oar own resources. These matters are worthy of careful thought.

There is a fish In Hawaiian waters which Is known by the native name of humuhumunukunukukuapuan. which means literally "sewing up the nose." The native Hawaiian method of kill lng- a pig to be roasted Is to smother It, not cut Its throat, and It Is smother ed by sewing up the pig's mouth and nose. This fish with the long name has spines which In ancient times were osed as needles to sew up the pig's mouth; hence the name more fully means "the fish that provides the nee dles for sewing op the nose of the pis." Tho Morning Star. The morning star, an Iron ball stud- fled with spikes and fastened by means of a chain to a short handle, was ' much used In medieval times as a mili tary weapon. It was exceedingly i formidable, for when thrown it could 1 not easily be avoided or dodged, the 'chain permitting It to curve around jthe arm or over the shield. It was j confessedly modeled after a common cactus which grows in every pnrt of I Italy.
