Oregon Voters tsk
Johnson to Bolt
Moro than five thousand signa
tures were pbtained to a petition cir
culated in Oregon Tuesday asking
United States Senator Hiram W.
Johnson to repudinto tho platform
adopted by tho Republican National
Convention in Chicago and to an
nounce himself as an independent
candidate for t the Presidency, ac
cording to a telegram sent t,o Senator
Johnson by W. B. Adams, Portland
-.Mr. Adams said ho didot reprc
sent any Johnson organisation that
had heretofore existed, hut- that his
telegram was sent in behalf of tho
many supporters of Senator John
son in tho recent Oregon primary
"Wo heard that similar, petitions
were being circulated jn New York,"
Mr. Adams said, "bo we started them
here in Portland. So far the petitions
have been' circulated only in Port
land, but wo plan to send them
throughout the State'
Adajnssaid he and the group with
which he' is connected will continue
to circulate tho petitions until Sen
ator Johnson declares positively that
he will not be a candidate for tho
Presidency on an independent ticket.
About 30 days ago I lost out of my
trunk a very heavy brown tarpaulin,
which was used as a- tent cover. I
lost it near the corner of Clay and
Sycamore and it was seen by reli
able parties lying on tho edge of the
pavement, but by the timo I had got
ten there to get it, someone had
moved it. It is worth. $50,90 and is
the property of.Rk M. Montjoy, who
needs it badly to qompleto his' tent.
I hnvo received some information
about it, and am now hqping this
notice will be the cause of its delivery
without further cmbarassment.

That tho Republican leaders arc
less well pleased with tho nomina
tion of Senator Warren G. Harding,
of Ohio, for the Presidecny yester
day than they were last Saturday,
was declared by ""Vice President
Thomas R, Marshall on his arrival
nt San Francisco to attend the Dem
N Tho vice president added that ho
was not n candidntc for tho Presi
dency, but was about to retire from
politics. Ho declared the Republi
cans were iir error if they assumed
the election of Senator Harding was
a foregone conclusion and that Pres
ident Wilson did not seek a third
term, but could be nominated and
elected for one if 'he did.
Of Senator Harding's' andidacy
the vice president said:
"The Republicans arc not so well
pleased now as they were on Satur
day night. Personally, I have high
regard for Senator Harding. I would
do anything for him except vdfe for
him. Tho Republicans are making
the mistake of their lives in-thinking
of the November election ns a
foregone conclusion and of the Dem
ocrats ns a disorganized,, defeated
party. They are going to find Us ery
xjnuch alive in November."
Mr. Marshnll depried lavish ex
penditures of money in connection
with presidential campaigns. It was
disheartening, he said, adding thnt
ho regretted tho "Republicans were
not the only guilty ones."'
Of the Democratic convention and
his own part as n delegate in it? the
vice president said:
''I am here to promote peace and
good will among the Democrats at
this coming convention."
He said so far as the convention
was concerned, "there is no Irish
question" and of prohibition en
forcement he declared: "Nothing is
so detrimental to the country ns the
passage of laws and the ignoring
pf -those same laws."

Having an intimate knowledge of

as a candidate over whom a victory
in Ohio is considered a certainty.
Jnmes E. Campbell, Governor of
Ohio thirty years ago, and prominent
in political circles for half a cen
