(By Associated Press.) Seattle, Jan. 14.-The death of Governor John R. Rogers and the succession of Lieutenant Governor Henry McBride has introduced a new and very important ele ment into the approaching contest for the election of a United States senator to succeed George Turner, Although Governor Rogers had been mentioned as a candidate for the sena torship, It was generally understood while he was alive, ani hsa become positively known since his death, that he would have done all in his power to se cure the re-election of his fellow demo crat, Senator Turner. Governor Mceride Is an ardent repub lican, and is expected to replace the democratic appointees of Governor Rogers with republilan followers. He owes his nomination and election as lieutenant governor to ex-United States Senator John L. Wilson, but his actions as president of the state senate last spring are taken as an indloation that he will not assist Wilson to return to the senate, but will throw his influence to State Senator Harold Preston of Seattle. Harold Preston Is an attorney of marked ability and in politics a man of independent thought and action. He was the author of the Preston railroad rate bill introduced in the legislature at the last session, a faot which has made him popular with the farmers of Eastern Washington, to whom no political issue is of greater importance than that of se curing lower freight rates on agricultural products.
