R008EVELT ON STATEMENT NO. 1 "It has been stated to me since my arrival here," said Colonel Roosevelt today,"that In, spite of Senator La Follette's hav ing carried the primaries in fair and open, contest, an effort will be made to beat him in the Legislature. I do not for one moment believe this, because any such conduct would be from every point of view an outrage that would be a deliberate violation of good faith.. "When, in Oregon, the Demo cratic candidate for Senator, Glamor Chamberlain, carried the primaries and It was- pro posed .that the Republican Leg islature should turn htm down, I strongly and publicly took the position that such an act would be one of bad faith by the Legislature toward the peo ple, and I take the same posi tion In regard to Senator La Fo'.ie'.te."

SUBMARINE MINES PLANTED FORT STEVENS. Great activity in submarine work is apparent at Fort Stevens. The entire river mouth has been carefully laid out and sys tems of laying submarine mines sd ar ranged as to render it practically im possible for attacking vessels to ever safely. pass by. These mines are so constructed that their explosion Is completely controlled by electric con nection with the shore batteries. In struments on shore can carefully track an approaching vessel, await the moment it is over a group of mines, touch an electric button and instantaneously the approaching boat is reduced to a mass of wreckage, which is swallowed in a wild vortex of foaming, swirling water. The sub marine mines are also arranged so that they can be made to explode by contact, a mere touch from the ene my's boat sufficing to eliminate itself. Charged With Starting Fire. EUGENE. J. H.

One night 1 six were set in the neighborhood of the fire at Oat Hill to my certain knowledge. No effort will be spared by the local office to secure convic tions.'
