THE BIG CONVENTIONS OPENED
Today the republican and progressive conventions
opened in Chicago. For a week the clans have been
gathering and for half that long the wires have been kept
warm with all kinds of guesses and predictions as to
candidates and programs. Favorite sons have been trot
ted out and put through their paces, taking up as much
space in the public view as they could, and trying to take
The guesses have been perhaps one as good as an
other, and the predictions as numerous and as strong as
the hopes of the aspirants and their backers-. All kinds
of combinations have been suggested, and each factor of
the big gathering has figured it out or had it figured out
for him just how the votes are to flock to him when the
time for flocking gets ripe.
Over and above all however has been the Hughes
movement, strong, persistent and growing, and the Roose
velt struggle against big odds and several distinct and
large sized handicaps.
The standpat element controls the steam roller, but
the rolling is not good. It can nominate its choice despite
the progressives, but it does not want to nominate unless
it can also elect, and that is where the party is up against
a whole lot of trouble.
Yesterday one wing of the progressives, for it has
developed two, gave an ultimatum to the old party, to the
effect that it is "Roosevelt or nothing." How much of
this is meant and how much is bluff one can guess as well
as another. It may be all one or it may be all the other
though it is probably a "fifty fifty" mixture.
This has all been unofficial and did not count. Now it
is different for it is cold business and words mean some
thing. It is not to be expected that much will be done to
day or for that matter tomorrow, for as at present ar
ranged the names of candidates will not be presented be
fore Friday, and possibly not before Saturday.
The platform is to be made and acted upon, and the
olive branch is to be kept working double shifts. What
action is taken, if any before Friday, will depend on the
progressives. If they name Roosevelt as they have
threatened to do, tomorrow, it will force the issue, and
place the responsibility of another widening of the breach
upon the republicans. The radical branch of the pro
gressives is liable to do this, and this may cause a split
among the splitters. From present indications however
it is not probable the nomination will be made before late
Friday, and probably not before Saturday. In the mean
while the Capital Journal will give a full report of the
doings of all the conventions and its readers can keep in
close touch with the proceedings and do their own figur
ing on possible results.
The Capital Journal's cooking school at the armory
this, week is attracting a great deal attention. Yester
day's attendance was double that of opening day and be
fore the week is over it is likely that the big building will
be filled with interested women. Mrs. Vaughn is an ex
perienced worker in the field, and understands thorough
ly the subjects she takes for her lectures. It is well
worth the while of any Salem woman to attend the after
noon sessions of the school regularly.
"The weather bureau having predicted thunder storms
for the last half of the week, apparently overlooked the
fact that a severe and killing frost is also due during that
period, when many fresh budded presdiential aspirations
will be nipped, literally, "in the bud." It is so pathetic
that the whole crop must succumb, with the exception of
just one. What a glorious country it would be if there
were offices for all of us.
Justice Hughes having remarked in an address to a
graduating class of girls that we should ail .veverence the
flag, the Hughes boomers at Chicago proceed to point to
the utterance as positive evidence of the judge's sound
position on questions of national importance. To most of
us i reads like a very common and ordinary platitude.
The unfortunate ones in the hospital near deaths door
from th.e accident near the west approach to the steel
bridge Sunday have an abundance of time now. Before
the accident they were in a hurry. Will autoists ever
profit by the daily examples of death and disaster from
speeding or careless driving?
The following prices for fruits
and vegetables are those asked by
the wholesaler of the retailer, and
not what is paid to the producer.
All other prices 'are those paid the
producer. Corrections are made
When the selection is made and the conventions have
adjourned it might be well for the Smithsonian institute
to send an expert to the United States -supreme court to
learn the mystery of the sphinx. Justice Hughes might
throw considerable light on that vexed question.
Today the three conventions got busy in Chicago, and
the whole country outside of Oregon will be watching
them until the Hughes-Roosevelt row is settled. Here in
Oregon we have something more attractive and certainly
much sweeter. The Portland rose festival.
Everything seems to be quiet along
Market street today, .since- wheat lias
weakened in Portland, the local quota
tions are now feeling the effect, with
figures today at SO and 82 cents '
Strawberry prices are verv much ac
cording to quality, but the average
price today is from $1.00 to 1.25.

A new party was born at Chicago yesterday. It is a
girl. On the registry of births its name will be Women's
National Party, but it will be known probably as the
Giraffes, being somewhat of the polka-dot order.
The lion and the lamb, that is the Elephant and the
Bull Moose will lie down together no doubt, but the ques
tion that is bothering both is which will -be inside the

The menagerie and side shows have been running full
blast at Chicago for several days. It is probable when
the Colonel arrives and adds his nut-cracking bird to the
exhibit it will prove a drawing feature. That is the kind
of bird the elephant is looking for just now for the nut
he is trying to open is an exceedingly hard one to crack.
The worst of it is that when he gets it cracked he is liable
to find the "kernel" is there.
Vice-President Marshall says if the democrats want
to nominate him for the place again, he will stand for it,
but if not he will not complain. He also says that what is
done at Chicago is none of his affair, but personally he
would like to see Fairbanks win. Like all true, blue In
dianians he thinks, Muckamaw postoffiee, Hooppole town
ship, Posey county, Hoozier state is about the right spot
for real presidential timber.

We relics of a bygone time insist that old things were
sublime, that modern things are punk; but our old domes
are full of bats, and we are talking through our hats, and
all we say is bunk. The lovely dames come
clown the street, togged out in raiment slick
and neat, and we look on and sign;- "The
modern fashions," we declaim, "are noth
ing but a burning shame they shock the
purist's eye. They make the tired spectator
ache; and how the womenfolks can make
themselves a holy show, is something that
we can't explain; oh, for the fashions safe
and sane, of forty years ago'" We make
such statements free and bold, but if you

there, with gowns that look like circus tents, and shawls
that look like twenty cents, and nets upon their hair,
you'll say, "Those girls were surely shrieks! The world
was over-run with freaks when those tintypes were made;
if any women should appear in such a spread of rags this
year, the cops would make a raid!"

Feature of Yesterday's Trus
tee Meeting Was Gift of
Famous Old Organ
A gift of a pipe organ was offered
lo the trustees of Willamette I'niversi
ty nt their meeting yesterday, by the
1'iiirials of the Methodist Taylor street
church of Portland. The offer was
accepted and the organ will be install
ed in the chapel before the opening of
the fall term.
Sentimental reasons nlone induced
the Taylor street church officials to
uive the organ to the university. Al
though several cash offers of $l!,"i00
had been received for the organ, it was
tin wish to preserve it for Methodism.
It is a two luminal organ, of rich,
sweet tones and in good rendition.
All the present faculty of the uni
versity were re-elected yesterday after
noon nt the official mooting of the
trustee. This does not of course in
clude those who taught in the academy,
as at the meeting held last February,
the trustees decided to discontinue this
department of the university, as well
as the art department, devoting all
resources to the liberal aits.
