The Peoples Warehouse Save Your Coupons Where It Pays To Trade TO DEFEAT CONGRESSMAN !',', R. ELLIS Congressman W. R. Ellis of this tity and district Is scarcely out of the state on his way to attend the coming session of congress, than plans for his defeat at the primaries next spring are set on foot. In the Sunday Oregonian of November 24 the following review of the congres sional nominations for next spring appear: "Political fences, which Represen tative In Congress W. R. Ellis strove, all last summer to put in safe con dition so that in his absence this win ter, rivals might not break them down, do not seem to be holding so well as he hoped for. In his d strict especially in Umatilla, Wasco and Multnomah, there is much unrest and the upshot promises to be the launch ing of another candidate, or several, In trie republican primaries next April. "But as presence of several rivals en the field would split up the anti-Ellis vote, for Ells' benefit, just as In the 1906 primaries, his enemies are trying to choose a candidate around whom they all can gather. "Among those boomed against El lis are T. T. Geer and S. A. Lowell of Pendleton. W. J. Lachner of Baker City, and Shepherd of Portland. El lis' opponents say that he was nomi nated by a minority of the party and that had there been but one candi date running against him, Ellis would not have been nominated. "That there Is' strong opposition to Ellis is evident from the history of politics in his district. In 1898 he was defeated in convention, after he had served three terms in congress and Moody went to congress In hie place for four years. Then the Ellis forces combined against Moody with the Matthews element in Multnomah county, and nominated J. N. Wil liamson for two terms. Next came the primary contest of last year. In which Ellis was again victorious. Ellis Forsees Danger. "Ellis baa foreseen that his enemies will try to beat him In the next pri maries. To ward them off, he spent much of last summer traveling over the district, putting his fences In or der. The vote in the 1906 primaries was as follows: Ellis 7,764 Bhepherd 6,761 Iichner 4,893 Rand 2,905 Total 22.323 Ell's plurality 2.003 Bills lack of majority (11.162) 3,398 "Lowell ran for United States sen ator in the 1906 primaries, receiving third place. Geer ran for governor and won second place. Lowell has announced that he will not be a can. didate for United. States senator next year. One of his obvious reasons is that his presence in the race would split up the vote against Fulton, as It divided the opposition to Bourne last year, and would mfke eawler thq COFFEE Our name on the pack age gives us the credit, and puts on us the money back burden it isn't a burdenl Tear grocer returns roar noar II fo doo't Uu Schilling's Bit; w par him nomination of Fulton without any advantage to himself. Both Lowell and Geer are said to apprehend that they may be charged with seeking too large a variety of offices. "Geer polled a heavy vote for the nomination for governor last year, the vote being as follows: Withycombe ....14,175 Geer 13.912 Johns 7.879 Brown 5.278 'Sehlbrede 1,832 POLITICAL NEWS NOTES. 53,096 "Eastern Oregon foes of Ellis see the need of bringing out a strong candidate from their part of the state, in order to ward off candidates in Multnomah, where they hear sev eral aspirants are pluming themselves whose running would divide the vote the same way as last year and result as before, in the nomination of El lis." While it is true that Judge Ellis did not receive a majority of the par ty vote cast In the primaries last year, owing to the large number of republican candidates before the people at that time, yet it is true that In the elect on In June Judge Ell'p received the largest majority ever received by any congressional candidate in the district. His total vote was 28.394, while that of Graham, his democratic opponent was 'but 12,151, giving Judge EUJs 4 clear majority of 16,243. In the primaries Judge Ellis received a plurality of 2003 votes, with four men in the field as candidates." The people of the district are sat isfied with the work of Congressman Ellis, and while there may be activ ity among the politicians to encom pass his defeat there will be little sympathy with such a movement among the rank and file of the vot ers. He Is now In the east on his way to Washington, where he will remain at his post of duty until con gress adjourns and his friends in this city and district will be on the alert for political attacks during his ab sence. There is every prospect now that he will be renominated at the primaries next spring by a large vote. ... Pneumonia Follow" a CoUL but never follows the use of Foley's Honey and Tar.

Cox, an acknowledged dealer of the republican party in Cincinnati, has Issued a statement in dorsing Secretary of War Taft for the presidency. The Indorsement of William H.

Jones, chairman ofthe national prohibition committee, de Clares that the recent liquor victory in Wilmington, Del., was brought about by the grossest fraud and bribery, the whisky dealers openly boasting the day before election that they had a fund of from 350,000 to $100,000 with , which tp buy votes. It is reported an effort will be made at the coming session of con gress to unseat C. D. Carter, the In dian congressman from the Fourth district of Oklahoma.

THATCHER Traveled 8500 Mltag Across Rockies ami Will Urge Government to Build Road for Autos Says No Use for Tourist to Go to Europe for Fine Auto Tours, Wlien There Is Such Scenery In tin United x States. Chicago, Nov. 25. C. W. Thatcher, a "good roads" enthusiast who reach ed Chicago after nn overland Journey from San Francisco In a miniature prairie schooner, hauled by a pair of mules, continues to lecture on his Ideas for a national highway from New York to San Francisco. He exploited to street crowds the details of his extraordinary trip, be gun partly from health motives but more from a desire to promote the good roads movement. When the diminutive prairie prairie schooner reached Chicago from Milwaukee, by way of Sheridan road and bearing a faded s'gn: "I read the Hearst papers: they favor good roads," It attracted great atten tion. When he reached Chicago he an nounced the loss of his dog. his sole companion for two years. The animal disappeared two days ago from after having traveled thousands of miles across the Sierras through Death valley and over the Rockies. Thatcher has 'asked the police to as slst In the recovery of the animal. When he renched Chicago Thatch er had traveled 8500 miles, often be ing several dayt without seeing a human being In his passage over the Rockies or through the plains of Mexico. The traveler Is a civil en gineer, which Is regarded as lending a special value to his plan for good roads. "The fact Is that If we were to build the road through the Rockies, which can be done easily," said Mr. Thatcher, "we could keep In the United States many thousands of dollars that annually go to Europe because they have good wheeling roads on the other side of the Atlantic. "I know what I am talking about when I say that an automobile route from coast to coast through the Rocky mountains would be the most traveled route In the world."

The stir created here yesterday over the raid made on the gambling restorts by the village authorities has apparently completely subsided and there was very little talk of the matter today, says a Culdesac letter. The Spokane saloon seems to have been the bone of contention, owing to the dance hall which was run In conjunction with It, aad now that It has been closed and evidence given that gambling at the other resorts will be discontinued the matter has been dropped and things are running quietly. The blackjack table and roulette frame nken from the Spo kane saloon yesterday were burned today by Justice Stewart and Con stable Campbell at the rear of the Tetrlck livery stable.
