At a nseetinjr of the intercity league
directors held in Portland Monday
night the Woodburn franchise was de
clared forfeited to the league. The
refusal of Manager Huildleson to pay
the expenses of the Cumas. team to
Woodburn last Sunday caused the ac
tou on the paxf of the doctors. Wood
burn was not represented at tiie meot
ing Monday night, so the other direct
ors could do nothing but drop the team
from the league. The Woodburn man
agement will lose the $75 which was
put up as a guarantee that.it would
complete the season's schedule.
McMinnville and Vancouver are both
considered as successors to Woodburn.

New York, Aug. 2. Political lenders
decided today that Charles Kvaus
Hughes is going to live up to his repu
tation as one of the ost strenuous
campaigners in the business.
Scanning todny tho itinerary for the
trip on which lie starts Saturday, re
vealed the fact that in a brief month,
tho republican candidate plans to jaunt
over 10,000 miles spreading gospel of
hia views and appealing for votes. Four
years ago Colonel Roosevelt set up a
mndk for atrenuosity in cninpnigning
when he traveled 13,000 miles in 40 odd
days. It was over very much the same
ground that Hughes will cover. But
Koosevelt included the south in his
jaunt and Hughes' stop below the Ma
son and Dixon line is nt Lexington, Ky.

It was indicated at headquarters to
' day that the trip starting Saturday is
'merely a forerunner of Hughes', stump
ing. The itinerary of the present jour
ney doesn 't cover the . middle west
ignoring Ohio in particular, where the
republicans. have already determined to
concentrate and the middle Atlantic
states. Only one chunk of New England
Maine is included. Authoritative
information is that the republican nomi
nee will make ' later. " round up" trip
including these sections.
Mexico Main Issue.
The goveraor (incidentally the nomi
nee prefers to be called "governor."
rather thun " justice V or '.'judge"
Hughes), hag about given the idea that
he. can make the western trip without
the old fashioned "rear platform"
talks. The original idea o'f the tour
was to visit a score of the big cities
between New York and the Pacific
coast, remaining over night, or possibly
for a couple of days, addressing a big
muss meeting then conferring with lo
cal leaders. But the moment it was
announced that a tour would be made,
the "republican committee began to be
deluged with demands of state and lo
cal republican leaders for speeches at
all sorts of towns and villages ns well
aa the big cities. Every state leader
had a pressing reason demanding a visit
from the nominee as essential to repub
lican success. Efforts will be made so
far ,ns possible to snve Hughes' voice
for the big speeches, but it wns never
theless admitted that he will make a
big number of short talks.
The candidate has been working for
several weeks mapping out the series of
speeches which he will deliver on this
trip. He will enlarge on his speech ac
cepting the noininntiou, probably devot
ing an entire spech to each section, but
iu every one, those close to him any, he
will ram home what republicans consid
er the principal issue of the campaign
the Mexican situation.

ments today from railroad and grain
While there is not the promise of the
bumper crops of last yeur,( indications
are that this year s crop will be well
above the average. Even under the most
advantageous conditions, facilities of
western railroads are taxed to meet the
crop movement every fall. -
Assuming that in the event of a
strike, at least 00 per cent reduction in
railway carriage, shippers pointed out
that perishuble products weuld be given
the preference and that the grain and

Tho grain now iu storage as the east

it was nointed out, would be to vastly

A strike would mean, according to the
bureau of railway economics, today, the
greatest transportation tie-up in the his
tory of the country, with accompanying
prostration of cmerce that may send
the financial loss to the nation searing
unto the billions of dollars.
Advance reports reaching Washington
indicate the railway employes will vote
overwhelmingly to go ahead with the
strike unless their demands were granted.
If the strike comes, half a dozen reso
lutions of forced arbitration will in
stantly be presented to congress. Many
of them have been drafted for weeks,
but withheld ou the possibility that the
trouble Will bo avertcu.
They order, on the ground of public
emergency, an immediate settling of the
strike bv mediation.
.Should these measures be pressed,
congress appears due for one of the
hottest tights the capital has seen in
years. The four brotherhoods are de
terminedly opposed to mediation and
have given notice that the men who
seek to force it on them will feel the
full political power of 400,000 orgnnized
voterH in the fall elections.
Their fight will be led by Senator
LaFollctte, who has prepared an ex
haustive speech charging tremendous
"watering" of stock by railroads.
Counter offensive probably will de
mand an immediate physical valuation
of the roads.
The railroad faction will insist that a
national strike means widespread food
shortage and actual starvation in some
of the larger cities.
Sentiment is for Strike.
