LONG'S J Portland, April 25. Last, even ing's Portland Journal presents this view of the third term idea: Letters received by prominent Ortgoa Republicans from men high in the party in Washington and New York indicate that Tneo dore Roosevelt may yet be a candi date for the Republican nomination for president and may accept the nomination for the office when the national convention meets. A National-wide plan is now eaid to be in operation for the purpose of cre ating public sentiment and massing it in such f( rm that the candidacy of Roosevelt will dominate the convention and make his nomina tion certain. These letters put the proposal in a politic manner, and advise that now is a good time for Oregon to gft into the band wagon before the procession starts, thus fixing the people of the state fast and hard in the good graces of the Republican nominee and present president. It is pointed out that public senti ment throughout the east is rapid ly cry etalizlng into a universal de mand for Roosevelt's renommation. The prediction is made that when the convention is called to order this insistent voice will reach such irreeltible volume !tbat .President Roosevelt will be compelled to- lay asidq his scruples and allow him s If to be forced into the place at the head of the ticket. It is then suggested that since this condition prevails' it" w6uld-"be the beet thing possible for Oregon if it would take the lead and come out for therenomination of Roosevelt thereby allowing the people of the east to hear the echo of their senti ment3 in the voice of the west. This, it is contended, would place the state high in the council of the next administration and give Ore gon requests close attention for the next four years more. Already tbe hoodoo expression "third term" is being swept aside by the adoption of the term, "seoond elective term." The old precedent is to be buried under the argument that tbe people of the United States have elected Roosevelt to the presi dency but once; that should he re ceive the nomination and be elect ed, ' be would have been given the office but twice through the direct vote of the people. - Portland mn who have received the letters nave begun to look around and already see many eigne pointing to the existence of the plan outlined for the -coming battle. The absolute disinclination of Mr. Roosevelt to accept the nomination as vice president and his subse quent acceptance is remembered. The present lively contest bei tween Secretary Taft and Senator Poraker in Ohio is argued to be of the president's engineering, and the Jesuit of it is expected to be si much friction that tbe Roosevelt leaders wi I decide Taft to be out of the-race. Senator Bourne went to Washing ton pledged in his platform for a second elective term for RooBevelt. His sudden rise into the friendship of the president is taken to be an indication that the idea of another four years is not foreign to . the presidential mind. Portland Republicans are falling into line with the plan of campaign and already talk is being heard of universal endorsement by the vari ous Republican organizations of the state pledging tbe support of the party to the third term idea. The "second elective term" advice has iallen in fertile soil here. Hampton Normal Industrial Insti tute, are named as trustees of the fund, but neither of the institutions they represent will share in the gift. The income of the million dollars is to be used for the eole purpose of assisting in tbe "South ern United States community, coun try and rural schools for the great class of negroes to whom the small rural and community echools are alone available." Mr. Washington and Mr. Frieeell are empowered to appoint a board of trustees in connection with the fund. The Pennsylvania Company for insurance ou lives and granting annuities o( this city will act as fis cal agents for the trustees. Miss Jeanes, the donnor, is about 80 years of age and comes from an old and wealthy family that has been prominent for more than a century in the Society of Friends. She has long been interested in the welfare of the negro and has been a contributor to the institutes for education.

Credit ors of the estate of the late L?rd D. J.. Beresford, who wis killed , in a train wreck in North Dakota De cember 24, 1906, leaving' a very large estate, have filed an applica tion in the District Court here for the appointment of an administra tor and a probateof the will. Among the plaintiffs is Flora Wolff, the negress who claims to have been the common law wife of Beresford and to whom he willed $10,000. The others are persons to whom Baresford was indebted. whose claims a New York lawyer, representing the Beresfords, at tempted to discount. The estate is valued at over $1, 000,000 and con sists of lands and cattle in Mexico and Canada. After bequeathing $lo,ooo to Flora Wolff, the will left remainder of the property to Bere ford's two brotbere. The Wolff wo man refused to accept the amount left her, claiming a wife s share un der the laws of Mexico. Admiral Loid Beresford, when here some weeks ago, failed to reach a compromise with Flora Wolff and left tbe other claims to be. adjusted by his attorney in New York. What You See is Worth Twice What You Read! Chicago, April 23. A stupen dous railroad protect involving tbe construction ut a lour-track sub marine tunnel 22 miles long, con necting what is to be the largest port on tbe great lakes at Gary, In diana, and tbe vast subway sytem which E. H. Harriman proposes to bore beneath Chicago to connect all railroad lines came to light tonight. Back ot the plans which have pro gressed so far that even the most optimistic are staggered, are the railroad and lake navigation inter ests that have long been negotiating for a sight for deep water dockage privileges between Twelfth and Fit ty-fifth streets. JNot until the backers or tbe pro ject realized that their last hope ot obtaining a site for these deep wa ter docks was. about to be dealt a death blow by the passage of the Park bill in the Legislature did the promoters ot the counter project consent to remove tbe cloud ot se crecy from their maneuver. At Gary, Ind., the sic? of the greatest works of the United States Steel Corporation, tbe railroad and navigation companies asserts, freight and passenger terminal tclipsing any port on the Great Lakes will be established. From this terminal, which will be utilized as a clearing-house for east and westbound lake and rail traffic, will be constructed a four-track tunne. beneath the waters of Lake Michi gan that will communicate with the projected Harriman eubway at Twelfth street. Through the agency of this subway the tunnel will have access, to the railroad yards of every trunk line railroad entering Cbi oago. ' Philadelphia, April 23.
