McCarthy declared his return by the union labor party has given him an opportunity of vindicating or- ganized labor under which Schmitz and Ruef conducted their ill-famed regime. While many issues of local import ance entered into the campaign, the continuance of the graft prosecutions which has centered national interest on Sen Francisco and brought about a civic division of sentiment that has obliterated all party lines, was the dominant one.

AMERICAN CONDUCTOR IN MEXICAN PRISON That the protest made by the far mers of Umatilla county against the scheme to stop coal ships from car rying grain is proving effective Is In dicated by a message Hon. C. A. Bar rett received from Washington this morning. Immediately after the mass meet ing here Saturday Mr. Barrett wired the secretary of the navy asking that any action upon the petition of the Seattle Merchant Marine league bo deferred until a remonstrance from the farmers could be filed. This morning Mr. Barrett received the fol lowing reply to his telegram: Washington, D. C, Nov. 1. Hon. C. A. Barrett, Athena, Oregon. Immediate action relative to the transportation of coal for the navy Is not contemplated. WINTHROP, Acting Secretary From this reply it Is assumed that the government will not grant the ship owners' request without first hearing from those who oppose tho scheme. Many petitions objecting to the merchant marine league's request are now being circulated throughout the county. The petitions are being eagerly signed by farmers and within a few days the petitions will be sent to Washington. Under the scheme proposed by the merchant marine league the coal ships which bring coal to the Pacific for the navy would be barred from taking wheat back to the Atlantic or tp Burope. They would be returned with ballast. It Is estimated by the grain compnnles that should this proposition be put Into effect It would mean an ndvance of $1 per ton In ocean freight rates and a conse quent lowering of the prices the com panies would be able to pay the far mers for their grain.

This evening he will address a public meeting in the circuit court room at the court house and all old soldiers, of the civil war, the Span ish war, all ladies of the G. A. R.. sons of veterans and citizens In gen eral are invited to attend. The meet ing promises to be nn interesting one. General Shaw Is n splendid type of the veteran soldier and is well quali fied for department commander. At the outbreak of the civil war he was but 16 years of age. Though very young he enlisted tn the 15th Ohio Infantry in response to the "three months" call When his enlistment expired he enlisted in the 31st Ohio. Throughout the entire war he wore the blue and he participated In the first battle of the war. Philippl. and also n the last important engagement, that at Bentonvllle. He was wound ed on three different occasions. At the battle of Chlckamauga he was shot in the shoulder. At Kenosaw Mountain he was wounded In the an kle, while his third wound, a sabre cut. was received In North Carolina, in an engagement just prior to the battle of Bentonvllle. At the outbreak of the war General Shaw was a private, yet In spite of his extreme youth he rose to the rank of captain. At the close of the war General Shaw left the army and came to Ore gon to reside. However, the military spirit was still strong within him and prompted him to serve In the Ore gon national guard. Many years agn he was captain of a guard company in western Oregon. It has been the regret of his life thnt he did not re main In the army nt the close of the war. Had he done so he would un questionably have risen to h gh rank. Many others who remained In the army at that time and had less fa vorable opportunities than he are now brigadier generals snd major generals.
