The business of selecting a candidate for the republican
and progressive parties, for the exalted position of presi-

meeting of the national committee and the examining and;
deeming contests ur ueiegiuu&.
It was a busy day not only with the committee, but the
camps of the favorite sons were scenes of unusual activity.
The report that the Alabama delegation would yield to
New York and permit Hughes to be placed in nomination
d the Alabama
delegation sprang into demand
said, all that a person neeaeu was a suuuiem iiacia auu
a hint that he was from Alabama to become the center of
The report though was erroneous, or else tne delega
tion changed its mind, for it denied making any such ar
rangement. It is claimed Hitchcock started the story for
the purpose of helping the Hughes boom, and as meddlers
usually do, stirred up trouble for the man he wanted to
I18" Roosevelt sent word that he would not be at Chicago
during the conventions, but it is safe to say he will be in
4ose touch with it all hours day or night. Barnes, of
New York, is on the ground and has his scalping knife at
razor edge for his long time enemy, the Colonel. He is
not saying much but he hasn't time between spells of
thinking up something new to do to Teddy. It is claimed
the New York delegation is solid for Root, but this is
vehemently denied by Roosevelt leaders, who insist that
17 is the most votes any one candidate can expect from
the Bay state. . -
. Penrose is on the ground with the delegation irom
Pennsylvania done up in a package, and he owns and
controls the string. What he will do is worrying most of
the candidates, for it is generally considered that if he
supports Roosevelt the fat is in the fire for all the others.
He is saying nothing, and that is what causes the worry.
It is probable the Philippines and Porto Rica delegates
Avill be given votes, as the committee is favorable to this.
t4- ,jovinrv n clinnvd PMiiip. and it aunears. does not
want a large vote at the start, unless it is large enough
to nominate, lie would lay low ana await uevtMuymuuw
rather than have a big vote at the start and see part of
his vote switched away from him during the tight. If he
wins, lie reasons that it will only be after a long deadlock,
and he prefers to be a tail ender until the dash for the
finish is made. .
Of one thing there can be no doubt and that is that
before Hitchcock got on the grounds Hughes was a much
greater favorite than after he butted in. IT'S actions
simply caused the others to concentrate their lire on
Hughes. They realize that in order for any of them to
win they must' first get rid of him. It is a common danger
that unites them and that removed they will be after each
others' scalps in true aboriginal fashion.
And on top of all this is the fact that the progressives
are these just waiting for the republicans to act. If
Roosevelt is not named, the indications are strong that
they will at once make him their party nomine and the
fight of 1912 will be fought over again.
They are anxious to compromise on Roosevelt
otherwise they will go it alone.
It is stated contempt proceedings may be begun
against Standard Oil dorectors for alleged violations of
the supreme court decree ordering the dissolution of the
trust. Evidently the fact is overlooked that Standard
Oil is so big and powerful that it has contempt for every
thing. Vanderbilt's "public be damned" idea was as milk
and water to gasoline, compared to the way the Rocky
gang feels about it.
The statement made by Colonel Churchill in pirliament
yesterday makes Portland's record as a loser sing very
small. Portland lost a thousand cords of wood, which is
going some, but England has lost an army of a million and
a half men, without batting an eye. A committee is to be
appointed to discover if possible where the army was lost
and to find out if it can be recovered.

ENGLAND'S MISMANAGED ARMIES
It is stated that reinforcements are to be sent the !
British troops in France. About all the effect this, will
have is to increase the expense of keeping them in sup
plies, that is if the statement of Mr. Tennant, parlia
mentary under secretary of war for Great Britain, is cor
rect. He stated in parliament yesterday that England!
had raised 5,041,000 soldiers by voluntary enlistment, but !
that many of these could not be used because they were i
from the Orient and could not be officered because there!
were few Englishmen understood their language. He;
said that by September the officers could learn their
languages and be able to command them. Colonel;
Churchill in reply said that 1,500,000 of these were un-j
accounted for, and wanted to know what had become of!
them? He also stated that
that halt the total strength ot the British army was at
home, and that of for every six men taken for war service
only one effective infantry rifle was placed over the
parapets at the front.
While we are talking about preparedness it would
seem from these statements that this country is about as
well prepared now as England is after nearly two years
On top of this is another report that English troops
are taking the places of French troops in the trenches to
allow them to be sent to the front at Verdun. Since last
autumn no reports of the British doing any of the fighting
have been received on this side of the pond except some
small skirmishes along the sector held by them on the
In the light of this combination of circumstances it
is difficult to understand why more reinforcements should
be sent to the front.
Manitoba, Tuesday, began business under the new
prohibition law which does away with licensed saloons,
but permits hotels and cafe's to sell spirituous and malt
liquors under certain restrictions. One of these is that
no sales may be made between 11 a. m. and 10 p. m. dur
ing the continuance of the war. In the city of Winnipeg
76 bars closed their doors and 500 barkeepers took the
back to the farm, or some other place, course. The re
ports of the closing hours say there was no excitement,
and less drunkenness than usual. As this was John
Barleycorn's funeral it is somewhat surprising that there
was not more hilarity at the wake.
Harold C. Ravenholdt, of San Francisco, says he has
discovered a preparation that will raise hair on anything
less dense than a billiard ball. He asserts he is in com
munication with a number of bald headed millionaires,
and offers to start the hair on Rockefeller's sconce for
the trifling sum of $500,000. Catch John D. paying ten
dollars a piece for his own hairs when he can buy a whole
toupee of some other fellow's for a lone ten dollar bill !
Harold also modestly admits that he can make people live
to be 1,000 years old. He might do business with the'oily
one along this line, if he can deliver the goods.
The first conference between the board of 19 railway
managers and representatives of the trainmen demand
ing more pay, was held in New York yesterday. It is only
the preliminary move in the effort to reach ar amicable
settlement, the trainmen discussing only their demands.
Each side will make proposals until what appears to be a
compromise basis is reached, when each will withdraw
for consultation among themselves. It is hoped by this
plan a solution satisfactory to all may be reached.
Dr. Sin Yat Sun some time ago lost his jade idol which
it seems superstitious Chinese interpret to mean the China
Joss, is angry at him. He advertised extensively for its
return and yesterday it turned up in response to the of
fer of $10,000 reward. Chinese say this will cause his re
turn to power. Its a safe bet that some favorite sons at
Chicago will not regain their jade idols, unless they are
satisfied with Miss Fortune who is said to be "a fickle

Roy Fisk has established quite a rep

the past few days. Fur some time indi
cations have pointer toward the possi
bility that this pnrtiriilar member of
the feline family Has making more or
less havoc with sheep, goats and oilier
stock, both in the Xoti valley country
and in the vicinity of Mr. Fish's home
a short distance from the tunnel. A
few days ujjn Mr. Fisk, in company
with Joe Fowler, went out in quest of
that particular species of game, and
each succeeded in bringing in one. On

and brought in three more, bringing the
total up to five.
Medford Sun: Each day brings to
li Klit the fact that first damage re
ports of the late frost were as exag
gerated as British accounts of victories
during the first days of the war. It is
now estimated by Ken ('. Sheldon, who
is a close observer of fruit conditions,
that the loss will run between and
40 per ejent of the total, and that the
price will be good. The llogue Hiver
valley sustained less damage than .Ida
ho and eastern Washington fruit dis
tricts, and for this reason it is figured
the frost loss will be made up in higher
prices. At any rate, it has had the ef
fect of removing the daik cloud from
the face of fruit growers, who were
feeling very glum and sad n week ago.
