DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, 8AI1EM, OREGON, FRIDAY, JANUARY 38, 1010.
Washlnrrton. Jan. 28. It la not
oftan that thk White IIouso shottera
a president and two potential can
dldntes for the presidency in oppo3
lng parties, but Prcsidont Taft cs

Tho two who aro "In the hands of
tho friends" for the nomination in
1912 aro Charles Evans Hughes,
governor of New York and Judsou
Harmfon, governor of Ohio. Har
mon, sinco tho death of John A.
Johnson, of Minnesota, and tho tem
porary obscuration of ono William
Jennings Bryan as a presidential
possibility, lias been tho ono bright
star of hope shining for tho Demo
cratic party in a lowering cloud
His colleagtio of Now York was
ono of thoso "steam-rollered" at
the Chicago convention when Taft
Was placed at tho head of the Re
Hughes has not Voiced his presi
dential aspirations, but within tho
last week or two ho has let It bo
known that ho will not accept a re
nomination for governor of New
York, for "personal" reasons, and
tho political world has not bfeon slow
to deduce therefrom that he might
accept tho Republican nomination
for president in 1912, if anyono "in
sisted." Tho Now York govornor refused
to discuss, ovon in tho most imper
sonal way, tho outlook In tho repub
lican party, during the reception of
tho state executives at tho whlto
house. So did Harmon, but ho did
remark that ho "liked tho view from
tho white house."
"I understand that tho place Is for
rent ovory four years," ho contin
ued, with a smile.
"Yes. Woro you thinking of leas
ing it?" ho was asked.
"Well, I would havo to discuss
that matter with my wife. No sen
dblo man ovor tries to establish a
roaldonco without his wife's advlco,"
Harmon obsorved sngoly.
That ovonlng tho Ohio govornor
and his wife both attended tho din
nor glvon tho oxccutlvos by the
proaidont. Tho noxt dny Harmon
was asked what Mrs. Harmon
thought of tho whlto houso as a res
idenco. "Mrs. Harmon has not yot decid
ed. But sho is thinking about it,"
was tho governor's diplomatic reply.
Tho wholo Soorot Service is down

Woll, tho dlro deed that has cast
tho aorvlco into gloom happened
weeks ago, but tho sleuths have, up
to now, Kept their sorrow burled,
lest tho public know tho disgrace.
Some recalcitrant, howover, going
his way in sadness, with sorrowing
heart, let the secret slip.
A thief a common, ordinary,
garden variety of thief looted a
secret sorvlco man, and, .worst of all,
looted "Jack" Wheelier, pride of tho
Jack had purchasod a refrigera

and Jack was proud of it. But
while tho wagon, with tho freezer,

which It was to be placed, somo ono

without result. The refrigerator
can not bo found.
So tho secret service carries a col
loctlvo long face, and has a' secret
sorrow gnawing at Its collective
heart, for a secret service man has
boon "done" by a sommon thief.
If you value life, liberty and tho
pursuit of happiness, speak not of
refrigerators to a secret service man.
When Senator Crane, of Massa
chusetts, aroso in tho Senato and of
fend an amendment to the inter
state commerco law the other day,
tho floor and galleries were agog.
Anything appertaining to that law
Is of largo interest at tho Capitol be
cause of Its possible effect on tho
vast business and transportation en
terprises of the country.
Crano is one of tho Republican
leaders in tho Senate and It was nat
urally assumed that ho Avould not
monkey with tho awesome statute
unless ho had something imposing
in mind. Porhaps ho was carrying
out somo suggestion made by Presi
dent Taft. The crowd looked at
Crane, serono nnd indlfforont,
seated on tho senatorial mahogany.
Then thoy looked at the magic pa

front by a flying page and lay on tho
Tho bill had boon announced on
ly by title, but it was this title that
Jarred the nerves and ilrod tho Imng-j
ination: "A bill to amend the In
terstate Commerco Act."
There was more or leas discussion
as to its offoct on Wall street, rail
road earnings, tho prico of living
and tho English oloctlons. Orano
was tho cynosure of all oyoa, tho
contor of all thoughts, tho mngtiot
and man of mystovy. 1
What had ho evolved to change
that giWt legislative achtevomont,
tho Interstate commeroe act, that
overybody talks about and nobody
understands? Such as hnvo early
access to papers that figure In the
buslnons of tho sonato woro on tho

in tho regular courso of business
tho historic document was trans
forrod to tho office of the secretary
of the senate, whetv It was opened
with trembling Augers and scanned
with auger oyos.

to the chaste and expansive margin
Quick reading showed that the sec
tion affected provided that, among
others, railroad companies might
give free transportation to mon
having charge of shipments of cat
tlo and fruit.
Following the sinuous line of
Crane's amendment, the anxious
ones found that when it reached the
margin It resolved itself into the
momentous words "and milk."

Tho Illinois boy, despite his period

him to make a fine showing in ills

patches today from Managua, that
tho authorities responsible for the
execution of Leroy Cannon and Leon

the result of an investigation ordered

Alfred Rose, a pathmt at tho State
Insane Asylum, committed suicide
early yesterday evening by hanging
himself with an Improvised ropu
made out of a sheet removed from
Tho patient quietly slipped into
Ills room unnoticed by the attend
ants before time had been called for
the patients to jro their respective
rooms. Rose then pulled a sheet off
from his ' bed while he climbed up
the window bars a few feet and fas
tened the other end to the steetf
grating. He then moved the cot
under the rope, arranged the noose
around his neck, and kicked the cot
away. Death came soon owing to
the noose tightening up firmly.
When the body was found a short
time later, it was found to be still
warm and physicians took immedi
ate steps toward reviving the pa
tient, but the noose had done the
work too effectively.
Rose was committed to tho asylum
from Portland three yeaFS ago. Ho
attempted suicide one time by
"hanging himself with a towel and
baudkerchlef rope, .but before life

fCoroner Clough was notified of
the suicide and after investigation,

and officials as death could not be
prevented under the circumstances.
