CAPITAL JOURNAL WILL HAVE FULL REPORT
Those who read the Capital Journal will have observed
how complete descriptions of the doings at Chicago are
published daily in it. Of course the matter so far, is all
of the preliminary battle, but next week it will be dif
ferent and the real fight will be on.
The Capital Journal has arranged to have in addition
to the full dispatches. which will be sent out by the able
corps of correspondents in the service of the United
Press, a special service the United Press is putting on
for the occasion. This will cover things political bearing
on the conventions, but taking place outside of them.
With two hours difference in time the Capital Journal
will have the entire occurrences of the day up to nearly
six o'clock. . , , . e
The Portland papers arriving in Salem about tour
o'clock at which time the Capital Journal is also distrib
uted, are forced to go to press about one o'clock to catch
the mails, and so will not have the doings of the day
nearly so complete as the Capital Journal.
Not only will the Journal have the same report as the
Portland papers, but it will have two or more hours of it
and two hours later, so if you want the latest and fullest
news of the convention you will get it in your home paper.
Try Salem first, if you want the news and you will hav'e
no occasion to try anywhere else.
WHAT WILL THEY DO NEXT
BOTH WANT TURKEY INSTEAD OF CROW
Artemus Ward said a monkey was the most amusing
thing on earth because you never knew what it was going
to do next. The Germans in this war are certainly not
amusing, it is not an amusing sort of business, but they
certainly fill the balance of the bill, for what they will do
next no man knows.
When the news flashed over the wires yesterday of
their last exploit, the attacking and besting of the English
squadron on the North Sea, it was like lightning from a
According to tho dispatches the Egnlish knew nothing
of the presence of the Gorman squadron in their neigh
borhood until the attack was made and the battle begun.
The Germans slipped up on them and turned loose their
irnns bpforo thev knew thev were on the sea. It was a
genuine surprise, and nine of the big British war dogs
and many smaller crate went down in trie battle tnat
lasted through the day and night. Then before the bal
ance of the squadron could come to their aid, the German
fleet sailed away, and returned to its base.
In the few hours the ships were engaged the destruc
tion was terrific. In all, some seventeen English vessels
aggregating 1:19,100 tons were destroyed, the German loss
being 15,015. This does not take into account the British
battleship Marlborough, which is reported missing and
whose fate is not definitely known, nor the German
cruiser Weisbaden which is not registered in any registry
This sudden foray will cause much uneasiness among;
the British ships, as they will not know what to expect!
next. It also causes some guessing as to wnai uermany
is doing in the way of building a stronger navy. In the
light of the unexpected things the Germans h:ve done,
it would not be surprising to learn that they had built up
a navy big and strong enough to make them almost ready
to venture a meeting with the whole British ravy. It
would be an astounding thing, but that is the kind of
things the Germans are, and have been doing.
Some fear is expressed that Carranza may be assemb
ling his armies in northern Mexico for the purpose of
cutting off General Pershing and his forces. This is not
at all probable for Carranza knows, if the ignorant Mex
icans do not, that this would mean the end for him. He
also knows that if he attacks IYrshing and the Americans
that he will be badly whipped. The Pershing army is not
large, but it can fight its way to the border without as
sistance, if it becomes necessary. It reminds one of the
time when the Oregon ntade her trip around the Horn.
Then there were those who feared the Spaniard would
run across her. This they finally did, and regretted it.
There is an old story about two men who went hunting
and killed a turkey and a crow. When it came to a divis
ion of the game one of them suggested that he would take
the turkey and his comrade could have the crew or he
could have the crow and the party making the suggested
division would take the turkey.
This is about the way the situation shows up ot Chica
go between the republicans, and progressives. Each is
willing to let the other fellow have the worst of it. The
republicans offer to let the Bull Moosers make the plat
form if they will let the republicans name the candidate.
The progressives are perfectly willing to let them name
him if they will agree to call him Roosevelt.
They otherwise refuse to accept the crow, as the
naming of the man is the turkey side of the proposition.
On the other hand the progressives are willing to permit
the republicans to make a real progressive platform if
they are permitted to name the candidate. They gener
ously offer to let the republicans name the man for second
place and point out that Fairbanks would be the best man
for that position. On other words they offer to let the
G. 0. P. have the whole crow. "
In the meanwhile the vaudeville becomes more inter
esting and in somt respects amusing; that is if you are
not tied up pretty firmly with one of the other wings of
the party or parties, or whatever it may finally result in
when the conventions have finished their labors. Hitch
cock has kicked the Hughes fat into the fire, and this
pleases everybody who is not a Hughes supporter. The
favorite sons are jubilant and Perkins who represents
Teddy shows his teeth and smiles even as does the gentle
man he represents.
Hughes studies baseball scores and seems more inter
ested in "Matty" and his pitching than in all the political
ball tossers gathered at Chicago. Everybody is making
claims except Root and he is saying he wants only a small
vote. He is one who will probably not be disappointed.
The first bad break of the longshoremen's strike was
made at Tacoma yesterday when a number of the strikers
boarded a ship, forcibly removed the strike-breakers and
took them to Seattle. They have an undoubted right to
strike and stay struck, but when they go up against the
law, they weaken their cause and turn public sentiment
against themselves. No strike can be won against pub
lic sentiment, and it is foolish to provoke hostility, where
naturally there is sympathy. We may have ou opinion
about strike-breakers, but under our system of govern
ment they have as much right to work as,, the strikers

The open letter of the Warren
Brothers company, addressed to me,
which recently appeared in your paper,
is quite aunisii to those familiar with
the paving business as it is conducted
in this territory, and with the methods
of the Warren people. This letter is
signed by the Warren Brothers com

and never have been engaged in the
paving business. It is only a holding
company which owns the patents ami
machinery under and by means of
which Bitulitliic pavement is laid.
Bitulithic pavement is always laid by
one or mora of its numerous subsidary
companies. All the Bitulithic in Salem
was laid by one of these. It was this
company I referred to and metioned
in my former letter. The Warren
Brothers company is the parent orgam,
ization of the trust. This company un
doubtedly can hold up its clean hands
with a -show of honest virtue and'
truthfully say, "we have nothing to do
with the injunction suit," and still it
would not be an answer to nor a
denial of the truth of my former letter.
It is a fact that McXary & McXary
are not appearing for Mr. Fry. Mr.
Triudle represents him. AlcXury &
McXary are appearing for some mi
known client, and are controlling the
proceedings. There is only one other
concern interested in the paving game
in Snleni, and that is one of the
branches of the Bitulithic paving trust.
The Warren concern hai kept and
maintained one of their representatives
in Shalom almost constantl ythis spring
since it became known that the city
was contemplating embarking in the
paving business on its own account,

The Chicago convention scramble already shows big
business strongly behind Roosevelt. Big corporation law
yers do not get into politics for fun, or for their own ag
grandisement. They are there to do the work for which
they are paid. That is why attorney John Miller made so
adulatory a speech concerning Roosevelt, and that is why
J. Odgen Armour is behind him. Since that billion dollar
dinner, the big corporations are very friendly to Theodore,
which looks somewhat suspicious even though Roosevelt is
supposed to be above suspicion. Maybe as Sam Blythe
wrote in the Saturday Evening Post, there is some "West-eii informed on public aft
