ttwin toward any irther candidate.. In
the above list only five votes from
Dougla4 are counted upon, but f here.
isgilii If Douglas can be given :the
' Attorney-ltneralhlp, which is quite
lssillt as F. T. Wriirhtman and the
JtiHr canitldates cannot puj. up much
claim to this office, the f tall fourteen
votes of this delegation can be counted
on. Thus, say twenty votes from
Multnomah, -silstcen fromClackamas.
and nine mre from Douglas, added
to the first' 175. would bring the hum
bfr up to 320, iwhlch Is five times as
many as FUmlrfh can lay claim to d
ninJy twenty tlmea as many as Johns
boa.nts of. ;; !
Many persons assert that If Multno
its 67 votes to any ne candidate,
w hk h It Is aH It m-iy lo If the dele
gat Ion tHouid adopt the -unit ' ruleti it
will be able to place the nomina-tlon.
This is true ; s4- far as It relate-i to
Cer. but It s hard to. see how Fur
nish with poaribiy fifty votes, or Johns
w ith still less,, would: benefit by ,re
icelvlng this aid. And It- is not likely
that, Multnomah will go in to the con
vention with ah 4da of wasting' any
of its votes on wildcat. schemes. ,
Of course, it Is well known Multno-.
mah is not particularly invoraoie io
Gr. but the county has nothing o
much acainst GeerJ as it has agiinst
others wtom It would like to thrust
Into the Gubernatorial chair, and thus
effectually put them out of the way
and have -the , way r for Multno
mah's candidate for; the. United States
Senate before . the coming Legislature.
C. W. Fulton Ls aKl to be one of these
whom they would I like to treat thus
and a pronpuneed i :; politician
heard to say that an attempt would
b made by Muttnomib to stamped
the convention for 'Fulton for Govern
or, but' the aspect of fhtags now gives
this a. sickly ring, j i '
In regard to other candidates jmucb
cannot' be said, sal a - great deal d
penda on the way th Governorship
goes. But if this goes to Geer. . it is
quite likely th nomination of many
of the present state, officers will fol

MISS STONE'S CASE.
Has Mads Mr. Dickinson Very Unpop-

. WASHINGTON, .March 29.As one
result of his - activities In the Stone
case, Mr. Dickinson has lost bis posi
tion as diplomatic representative to
Bulgaria. Last fail he addressed a
very strong representation to the Bul
garian Minister for Foreign Affairs,
ami apparently has not been forglvm,
for now Information comes to hand that
he Is persona nn grata.. It Is very
probable that our Government, as a
manifestation of. its displeasure, will
refrain from sendirg another diplo
matic agent to Sofia, though I t will nojt
be thus prevented from making any de
mands upon the Bulgarian Government

A POSTAL CURRENCY
Uniau Proposition, Which Congrsu
Ha Before It for Us in Mail.
A unique feature In congressional
legislatlon Just now is presented In
the promotion of a postat currencyj. The
system was de1sed, perfected and! pat
ented by a private clUxeh, who offers
the result of his efforts to the govern
ment free of all cost. The system has
the approval of many officials, and I.
Indorsed by A long list ofthanufajctur
ers and business houses throughout the
country., Publishes and farmers are
especially Interested. Jn that. . the) new
currency promises an easy way for a
man in the country to promptly' isend
remittance for hi favorite publication,
Under he present Inconvenient money
order system the lndi-idual desiring to
send a small sum of money through the
mail Is met by the necessity for a lime-
killing Journey to the poatofflce to ob
tain safe money. This sets up a bar
rier to the prompt transaction of busl
ness and resuRs In much losa front the
fact that many people never carry out
their original Intention to subscribe or
purchase. The need Is for money in
the hands of the people that can be
safely and Instantly sent by letter J '
The tiro visions of the post check'
currency bill, now before Congress. In
troduced In the Senate by Mr. McMil
lan, and In the House by Mr. Gardner
of .Michigan, provides for priming th
on, two and five dollar bills In the fu
ture With blank spaces on the face.
These bills, of course, pass from hand
to. hand before the blanks ore filled.
When It is destxed to send one la the
mail the blanks ox filled in with the
nam of the payee, tits city and tt,
a 2-cent postage stamp to placed In an
other blank space and cam eled with th
Initials of the sender in ink. th nam
of the sender Is atgned on the back,
and presto! his money has suddenly
ceard to exist as currency and has
ben transformed Into a check on the
United State government, baring s 11
the safety of any bank cnerkj and
ready 'for Inclosure In Ills Wter. When
the payee receive this check be treats
it Just as he would any other check
Indonse It, goes to the nearest bank or
postoffice and deposits It or has It
cashed. ' V I " '''
Th paid check finally reached the
Trensuury Department, when It Is re
placed by a new one with tbe spore
unfilled. This keep the circulation at
par. No change whatever Is tnajd 1rt
the flnohclal policy of th government,
the only change being In tbe character
of the printing on the bills of five dol
lars and under.
The bill also provides for the Issue
of $75,000,600 of fractional curve ney.
with blank spaces similar to the larger
denominations, fn plax of tn equal
amount of snoney of larger denomina
tions, presucnably twenty and titty
dollar bills. The provision under the
new system for a continual reissue In
sure clean money both in the fraction
The 'government fee on the five. ten.
fifteen, twvnty-flv ' and fifty-cent
pieces Is to be one cent each. " '
Perhaps in no, better - way can the
reader come to understand the. press
ing need for postal currency than to
recall the times Without number when
he hlmself has been desirous of send--lngk
small sum of money through the
mallswith safety. ; Always in such
cases Comes up the barrier, and only

required for the Journey to the post-'

sure of necessity in the absencv of a
simple convenient system brings to the
nkmey order system Its present pat
rcnage. Statistics show-that from ten

hile it Is not thought that, if
opted, the proposfd system would
entirely auiercede the money order
system.- because for amounts over JS0
the money order would be slightly
cheaper, lit ts thought by the advocates
bribe pending bill that such a system
of povt check would prove a great con
venlence to, these desiring to send
small amounts of money through tht
mails, and wu!d result in gain to mer

who now receive such remittances In
th'e form i of stamps (often torn and
mutilated), drafts on small bank, or
loose coin "In letteraf always temp
tation to ptistat employes. All or these
forms of remittance entail some loss.
In many cases to th receiver, and to
that extent, perhaps, a creditor is un
justly defrauded, innocently It may le,
by the debtor. I'nder the new system
of making remittances w-oubi be done
away with, owing to the simplicity and
these troublesome- and unfair methods
c nvenlence of the pol, checks, and the
cost of sending the -remittance would
be placed where It properly belonss
