President Tart has stated with striking emphasis the position he is taking on Republican state platforms and candidates. The President does not, think he should be called upon to write the party decla rations in the different common wealths or to. name men for any of the' elective i offices. A President. It was Intimated, has a pretty big Job on his hands when he undertakes to fulfill all the pledges in the National platform and to tiring Congress around to the same way of thinking. - As to planks In state platforms in dorsing the administration, the Presl- dent. feels , that unless they can be written upon what h has said and done since taking office nothing he cou.d add In a personal way would help matters. ' v : 1 ' The Ohio conferences have served to bring out the President's attitude. He was Informed of the general tenor of the platform to be adopted at the Columbus convention the latter part of this month, but he did not go into details of planks. . Under no circumstances would the President express an opinion as to candidates. 'The figh this . fall in unio. it is genenarry acknowledged, will be a hard one. ' STATION TO BE ENLARGED Bremerton to Be Chief Coaling Sta , tion-ln Pacific Waters. . SEATTLE.

' CONGRESS IS LIKELY TO BE CURTAILED Representation of Some States May Be Reduced by Re apportionment. WASHINGTON, D. C The new census promises to precipitate a noli tlcal and sectional controversy of vital interest to the people. Based upon the population it represents, congress will . have to determine whether it shall be numerically en larged and made more unwieldy than It now Is, or whether the aggregate of persons entitled to a member of con gress shall be so curtailed. , Some states, if the latter plan is adopted, will lose representation In congress through a diminution of population during the last ten years, while others are certain of an In crease due to growth in the number of their inhabitants. - The present ra tio -of apportionment is one member for every 194,000 Inhabitants; the present house consists of 391 mem bers. 1 If congress were to adopt for the present house the ratio of apportion ment observed in 1900, the house of representatives would be Increased by 68 members. This would bring the total membership up to 460. It Is not expected, however, that this ratio will be maintained. It is expected that when the ar portlonment bill Is considered the number of the members of the house will be fixed at one for every 225,000. This would mean that the house1 would remain practically at its pres ent figure. Primaries Close. 8AN FRANCISCO.
