Another Trade Plan.
A piomlnont Domociat at Salem hns
divulged a plan to get all tho Demo
crats to voto for Geer, and In return
havo tho Gcor mon In this congres
sional district assist in tho election
of a Domocrat congressman to suc
ceed Tongue next spring. They argue
that such a trade was virtually made
In the Interest of Chamb&rlaln without
Governor Geer himself becoming n
party to It, although not discouraging
It. They could consistently mako the
same kind of n'trndo If it would en
sure them an nntl-ndmlnlstrntlon con
gressman from tho first distilct. Of
course, there Is no authority for the
proposition, and at present tho plan
rests In the minds of a few managers,
who will no doubt assiduously culti
vate the trade microbe.

had never been known where the vote
of the people had been disregarded on
any question submitted to them.
"The fact that no other candidate
appeared on tho ticket 'should not
servo as a bar against mo, for I took
the first stop In order to show other
candidates my intentions, nnd to give
them a chaiico to appear, nnd if, tills
voto of the people Is overlooked, it will
be rewarding those who did not per
mit tho peoplo'to express their opin
ion of their candidacy. Such a violent
step as to overlook tho voto would be
"Of course, tho caso has no legal
Hiatus only a high moral one, and In
every case heretofore tho opinion of
the people, ns oxprossod at the ballot
box. has already received considera

two years ago to voto for McKlnloy a
vote for Roosevelt would havo been
perfectly legal, although he ha'd not
been on the ballot for president, and
so if tho voters had desired tho elec
tion of any other caudldato than my
self, they could havo voted for him,
but whatever tho case, the majority
vote Is what counts."

Bondsmen Not Liable
If Not Found County Must
Lose Entire Amount
linker City, Or., Jan. 20. Further
developments In tho Huntington de
falcation case today brings out the
fact that one ot hla official bonds for
the second term Is missing. Tho bond
was given, or supposed to havo been
given, to secure tho county against
loss in tho collection of taxos. There
is no record of tho filing of tho bond,
nnd it Is not to ba found among the
papers pertaining to tho sheriff's of
fice in tho county dork's oflico. The
county judge and commissioners re
momber of having approved tho bond.
but tho bond Itself Is missing. As the
greatest portion of tho shortage oc
curred during tho second term of
Sheriff Huntington, tho county will be
unablo to recover from tho bondsmen,
save for the first term, unless the
missing bond is found.
If no bond Is found tho county will
have to stand tho loss, whloh la now
admitted to be 17,000.

and In its ontlroty, and reported bnek
to the house ns recommended by tho
special commltteo, to whom it was re
ferred. Several attempts to hnmper
the bill by making the availability of
tho appropriation conditional on tho
rnlslng subscriptions from other sour
cos were dofeated. The bill, upon
motion, was considered engrossed nnd
was placed on the calendar for third
Debate on the Bill.
Everything pnsQd off smoothly un
til tho commltteo encountered the
wtlon providing for the appropriation
of $500,000. Halo, of Josephine,
moved an nmendmont, which, In ef
fect, provided thnt no part of tho pro
posed appropriation ba made avail
able until tho directors of the fair
could satisfactorily show tho secretury
of stnto and stato treasurer that an
available exposition fund of nt loast
$1,000,000 oxlstod from private and
corpornto subscriptions, exclusive of
xtnto nnd national appropriations. Tho
Amondment wan seconded ns stated.
Malarkoy, of Multnomah, spoke at
length In support of tho bill In its
original form. Tho adoption of such
an amondment and Its provisions
would kill tho bill and tho contemplat

to tho exposition, nor Is ho unfriondly
to Portland, but the Interest of tho
taxpayers, who are callod upon to pro
vide the fund. To be a success n
grenter sum than $1500,000 Is roqulred,
he said, nnd It wax duo the taxpayer
that his Interests bo sorvod. Jones,
of Lincoln, said his constituency fa
vored tho exposition, nnd for that ion
son ha would oppose tho nmendmont.
If tho appropriation bill must be de
feated, ho doslrod that It be klllod
on Its own merits, nnd hot as tho ro
mlt of filibustering. Cornott argued
that the adoption of the nmendmont
would In all probability defeat aid to

in favor of the bill In Its original

outlay by tho state would be many
times returned by the subsequent hen

state, whose undeveloped resource H
offered abundant opportunity for set
