VOL. XXV. M4URICELANGHQRNE IS BACKED TO WIN THE RACE FOR CONGRESS. AS WOBBLING RECORD OF WAR""BURTON IS SCRUTINIZED HE WEAKENS IN THE MINDS OF VOTERS—LABOR VOTE SOLID FOR LANGEHORNE IN TACOMA. OLYMPIA, Nov. 2. —Maurice Langhome, democrat, will be elected congressman from the second district of Washington, to succeed Judge W. W. McCredie of Vancouver, in the opinion of many of the republican leaders from all parts of the district, who have recently visited this city. Stanton Warburton of Tacoma is the nominee on the republican ticket. He defeated McCredie for primary nomination almost entirely from the fact that as a Tacoma man ho was supported by the voters of his own town, and from t lit further fact in his primary campaign lie made pledges to all parties and all factions. He was a friend of the saloons with the liquor interests, and a prohibitionist with the drys. He assured the big corporations that if elected he would guard their interests as lie has in the past and by some means lie secured the endorsement of Chns. Cas, representing the labor unions and of Kegley, representing the granges. In some counties he was a stanpat republican and would support Cannon for speaker; in other counties he declared himself as an ultraprogressive. This double dealing has now been exposed and as a result all of the elements of the party are indignant, have lost confidence in the candidate and many of them announce positively that they will support his democratic opponent, a man in whom they have entire confidence and against whom nothing has been raised. The party leaders who have been j familiar with Warburton's record for; years are not surprised at the present stand taken by most of the voters. The leaders know that Warbur- 1 ton has bolted the ticket on many occasions; that he has never kept party pledges, that the only time he is a republican or supports republican principles is when he himself is a candidate for office and seeks the aid of his party in his campaign. That i Warburton Is and has been an ene-! my of organized labor is positively j r>roven bv his record in the legislature.! The Tacoma Labor Advocate of Frica\. October 2Sth, which is the official organ of the State Federation of Labor of the Central Labor Council of Tacoma, of all laboring unions in that city, and the official paper of Pico County, devotes a considerable portion of its issue of October 2sth, to e < epoi't of a labor committee'which investigated Warburton's record as a legislator. This committee reports in detail, and the general tenor of the report may be gathered from this paragraph : "We find that Senator Warburton was either actively opposed to all of the measures in which labor was interested, that he helped cook up jokers to make desirable legislation ineffective, or that when needed he was recorded as absent or not voting." GAMBLERS ARE FINED Sunday Evening Raid by Police Results in Conviction of Three Players As the result, of a rp.id by the police upon the eifrar store on G street conducted by Joseph Kelker and Charles Ramey, late Sunday night, 215 young men were rounded up and booked at the police station upon gambling charges. After a hearing lasting all day Tuesday in police court, five of the cases were disposed of. The cases were those of Hans Danielson, William Callow, Joseph Davis, Steve Medock and Joseph Crandi. The case of Danielson was dismissed for lack of evidence, Danielson, it was proven was merely a spectator. The fine of Grandi, $15 was suspended, he having been the complaining witness. The other cases were adjourned until today. Felker and Ramey have been arrested on the charge of maintaining a gambling resort and have posted bail in the sum of $100 each to appear for trial The names given by those who were arrested are: G. Olsen, Peter Jacobsen, Iver Olesen. George Bellany, Gus B'rlckson, Andrew Thompson, O. Johnson, Jack Mavala, Charles Sollla, William Callow, Joseph Davis, Sever Midock, Joseph Grandil, A. Karr, Henry Kanbas, Matt Makl, Hans Petersen, Gus Abrnheim. Louis Larsen, Helmer Erickson, C. Johnson and James Lee. Had Eye on Places. The police department has had an eye on these small cigar and pool rooms for some time and the evidence was sufficient to warrant the raid being made Sunday night. The officers who made the raid acted under directions of Captain Anstie and the rapidity with which they did the work allowed few, if any, players to escape. The raid, it is believed, will have a salutary effect In stopping gambling. WOULD ORGANIZE AUTO CLUB A movement is now on foot in Aberdeen among the buzz-wagon proprietors, to form an "Aberdeen Automobile Club." The object is for the protection of the interests of the owners and co-operation in the matter of good roads movements. ABERDEEN HERALD ABLEISM THE ISSUE ALL OTHERS JUNK INTO INSIGNIFICANCE IN THIS COUNTY. ALL KINDS OF DIVERSIONS ARE ATTEMPTED BY THE ABEL PRESS, BUT ARE NOT SUCCESSFUL. WHAT IS ABEL SPENDING SO MUCH MONEY FOR? There is no longer any doubt as to the real issue in the contest now being made in Chehalis county. All now know it is the continuance or stoppage ol' Abelism; all other differences have been set aside until this is settled. Moss Abel has been forced to discard the mask, and take the field openly, although at the start he disclaimed any interest in the success of Rosmond further than that of a brother-ill -law. Since Ilosmond's suspicious success at the primaries, Abel has been demonstrating a depth of brother-in-law affection seldom if ever equalled. Realising that his protege had received but a small percentage of the vote of his district at the primaries, and that any strong man opposed to him, on whatever ticket, would be dangerous, Abel knew that there was but one way under the law to nominate opposition. That was by the Democratic central committee. The nominee of that party having declined to run left a vacancy for the committee to fill. A. .1. Jackson, a professed democrat, who had been in the employ of Abel or Rosmond during the primary campaign, was induced to stand for the democratic nomination, with the understanding he was to resign from the ticket and leave Rosmond a clear path to the office of commissioner. The scheme was almost successful. Democrats, in a hopeless minority, took slight interest in the matter. Many of the committeemen were unaware that they had been electecf to the position or that there was a vacancy to fill, and those that knew gave i small attention. The activity of Abel for Jackson created the suspicion that resulted in the nomination of C. N. Wilson, somewhat against the later's personal inclination. That same activity opened the eyes of old time republicans to the fact that Abel had recently joined that party for the purpose of annexing it to his politicallaw business, and was the means of causing hundreds of leading citizens of Chehalis county to unite in a light to frustrate his designs, that they knew would cost the county dearly if successful, and it is this tight that has torn the mask from Abel. Every newspaper in the county that could be approached in that way has been enlisted by Abel and his lieutenants, to sound the praises of Rosmond and deal gently with Abel. The Hoquiam Washingtonian was offered $1,000 in support Rosmond by a member of the republican central committee, on the very day llis'.t committee • j;&ve out a newspaper interview, stating that the committee was without funds with which to conduct a legiti- I mate campaign. The offer was refusi ed by Kditor Johnson, but was apparently met in a different spirit by the (frays Harbor News. At least, that is the impression given out by the large amount of space given to Abel writers in that paper, and its free distribution throughout the county. The election printig, amounting to nearly $2,u00 is given to the Grays Harbor Post, for "good word for Rosj mond," to use the language of the latter when explaining to the Montesano Vidette (which has the contract for county job printing) the reasons for sending the work there. It is nowunderstood that, the bills for this work will be rigidly investigated before being allowed Realizing that C. N. Wilson is too well known in the county for personal attack, the Abel press gang has endeavored to befog the voter by crying that the Weyerhauser interests were behind him, and the boss is having a map prepared, showing the holdings of the Timber company in Chehalis county, with which he is said to be about to use in a stumping tour of the county. This attempt to create the issue of Weyerhauser for the purpose of diverting public sentiment from the real contest —Abelism—is drawing too heavily upon the credulity of the voters. If the tax dodging timber Interests were seeking assistance in Chehalis county, they would be too innocent for good service If they passed by the office of W. H. Abel to select C. N. Wilson. The valuable services of the former In this direction are too broadly known for any such error. Job printing and advertising are not the only attractions offered—at public expense—for support of Rosmond word comes from O&kville of the activity of Jim. Williams, town marshal, who is, said to have been promised the office of road supervisor for nls services, while from Mocllps comes the information that a saloon license has been promised in the event of the success of Rosmond. At Elma a local option election Is about to be held, and the saloon element is said to have the assurance of support from the Abel machine in return for the support of his candidate for commissioner, and so it goes. There Is scarcely a precinct in the county where promises or threats are not made in the name of the Hoss to persuade or drive the voters to the support of his tool. The voter should not permit his minil to be clouded as to the issue SEMI-WEEKLY ABERDEEN, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1910 Thrilling Rescue of Wellman Party From Balloon as Shown In Pictures. to be settled next Tuesday. No matter what the Abelized press or touters may shout, the malign influence of Bill Abel in the affairs jot' Chehalis county at the cost of the taxpayers should be abated. And that alone is the issue. HIRTE IS RECAPTURED Escaped Convict Located Near Davenport and Brought Back to Montesano After leading the officers a merry chase over half the state, Charles hirte, fscaped c.nvict, was arrested en Monday nij-.ht at. Davenport, Lin ccln county. Sheriff Fayette, of Chehaiis count/, van notified and left at c;nce to brini., Hitie back to this county to finish serving his larceny sentence at Montesano. Several weeks ago, Hirte escaped from a convict. road gans and showed up in I'osmopolis where lie was arrested aiui sentenced to a term in the county jail on a larceny charge, lie escaped from the jail, swimming the Wynooche river, though hotly pursued by posses and disappeared. Ilirt's mother lives in Lincoln county and the officials worked on the theory that he would either communicate with her or visit her home. This proved correct and Hirte was nabbed .Monday. After his Montesano sentence is finished he will be returned to the state penitentiary to serve the remainder of his term there, which is about six months. TO BOOST FOR FAIR Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce Will Co-Operate With San Francisco For 1915. Decision to assist San Francisco in boosting for the Panama-Pacific International exposition which is to be held in that city in 1915 was made at the regular weekly luncheon of the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce held at the Hotel Washington on Tuesday and the chamber will at once take the preliminary steps to that end. It was pointed out by Mr. A. Rupert, of the West & Slade Grocery company, that an immense amount of lumber would be required in the construction of the exposition buildings and that, beyond doubt, the Grays Harbor manufacturers would secure their portion of this business, and it would therefore prove excellent judgment to assist in boosting for the fair. It was also suggested that local merchants secure the oftcial design adopted for the fair and use It on their printed stationery. The suggestion was also brought out that an official design bearing the words "A Greater Aberdeen Id 1915" be adopted and used in conenction with the San Francisco advertising. Commercial men making other territory will be asked to advertise Aberdeen and the advantages of Grays Harbor and a suggestion for the securing of a large number of stickers which might be used, was made. The luncheon was a very successful one in the matter of attendance and in the enthusiasm manifested. Born. —On Tuesday, Nov. 1, to Mr. and Mrs. C. .1.

Just fifty seconds after the matter was brought up, the city council last night turned down the request of Ed. Dolan for a liquor license for his i rooming house on Hume street and ■ Michigan avenue, together with shelving the motion which called for a ■ change in tlie present ordinance restricting the number of saloons and their operation. Councilman Alexander put the action through. "As chairman of the license committee," said lie, "1 wish to state that the application of Mr. Dolan should be withdrawn, the money refunded to him and the amendment to the ordinance (changed to permit Dolan's license) be laid on the table together with any petitions for or against." "Second the motion," exclaimed Councilman Hilts, almost before Mr. Alexander had finished speaking. There were no dissenting voices when the question was put. Spectators Fooled. The council chamber was packed with spectators who had looked for a warm battle over the granting of this license. Parents of Frank Kebze, the youth who hung himself in the city jail recently, entered a claim for $10,000 damages. This was referred to the judiciary committee and City Attorney J. C. Hogan. The resolution providing for the improvement of West Boulevard froml Curtisß to Meade street, which was laid on the table at the last meeting, was again introduced and carried.

Two bids, one by Andrew Peterson and the other v Wm. Dutcher, for the improvement of F street, were turned down, being above the estimate. Peterson bid $21,680 and Dutcher $20,163.50. The work will again be advertised. When Councilman Elder asked for a light at McKinley avenue and E street, he immediately brought Councilman C. C. Quackenbush on his feet reminding the council that his request for a light on Tenth street had been turned down as Councilman Bailey had promised to make a report, after some delay, at last night's meeting regarding the new agreement with the electric company. Councilman Crlvyea also stated that his request for a light at the corner of Henry and Fleet street was being held up owing to Bailey's delay in making a report. Blamed Company. Bailey put the blame on the Grays Harbor Railway & Light company, stating that they had not given him definite figures yet. He stated that his committee was endeavoring to arrange for smaller lighs through the city but more of them, but that the electric company had not yet given the figures. He promised them for the next council meeting. Councilman Alexander again reported the light out at the corner of F and First streets. The matter of a fire alarm at the corner of Morgan and Jeffries streets was referred to committee. The heating franchise of J. Dabney and W. B. Mack was accepted. Upon application of Street Commissioner Arthur, for permission to eerct a small building East of the present city buildings, to cost about $250, Mayor Benn appointed Councilmen O'Hare, Alexander and Newell, a committee to investigate and report at the next meeting. MOVETO PHILIPPINES W. R. MACFSKUiVE TO MANAGE BIG LUMBLR COKPANV THERE- PROMINENT GRAYS HARBOR LUMBERMAN ACCEPTS RESPONSIBLE POSITION AND WILL LEAVE FOR MANILA. NOVEMBER 17— MRS MACFARLANE AND CHILr DREN TO FOLLOW LATER. Accepting the responsible position as manager of the insular Lumber company, of the Philippines, Walter R. Maefarlane, for several years connected with the Aberdeen lumber iu terests and for the past few yearsmanager of the Western Lumber company in which he is heavily interested, will leave Aberdeen on November 17 for Manila, where he will make iiis future ho 1 t. sailing from Satr Francisco on X n ember 22, direct for the Islands. Mrs. Maefarlane and' children will < ...se up their affairs here and leave for their new home about January 1. Mr. Maefarlane has sold his residence property on West Heron street', to Robert hlwart. < f Hocpiiani, but still retains his interest in the Western Lumber company. New York Firm. The Insular Lumber company, oil- Manilla, is an old established concern, which has been operating extensive l.v in the Philippines for several years. It consists mostly of New- York capitalists but Mr. Maefarlane will have an interest in the concern.. '1 he main ollices of the company are in the city of Manila but the mills are. located about 40<i miles south of there in the mountains where the timbeu" holdings exist. No soft woods aresawed in the Philippines, and themost of the output of the Insular Lumber company consists of mahogany and other hard woods. Since the acquisition of the rich. Kast Indian archipelago from Spain-, as one of the results of the war with' Spain in 189S, American capitalists and investors have been busy developing the resources of the Islands antfe the manufacture of hard wood lumber has been one of the principal industries. The Insular Lumber company was among the first to invade, the new possessions and it has secured a large tract of valuable timber comprising nearly all the varieties ot" hard woods for which the country fenoted. The offer of the management of the company was a very flattering one and Maefarlane felt that lie could, not decline it. Practically since his arrival on the Harbor Mr. Maefarlane has been one jof the influential citizens of tliis city. I lie is an enthusiastic and conscien- I tious booster and lias always been I found in the fore front of all movements cf progress. During the years itliat Aberdeen l.e!d membership in | the Northwestern league of professional baseball eiubs, Mr. Maefarlane | was president ot 'lie l<» :il association land it was principally through bis 'efforts 'hat tlif city was first admit- I ted to the ieagt:' and it \ as afterward held there until kicked out by the ' Dugdale crowd,' largely through the | efforts of Mr. Maefarlane and because the people had filth in hi.s ability to 'manage the technical details of the ! franchise. Mr. and Mrs. Maefarlane have many friends in Aberdeen and their remov iV will leave a gap in the business atef social life, of the city. That they will■ bo greatly missed by their mavy friends is certain but they will take with them to their new home in the • far away island possessions of the United States the best wishes of Aberdeen people.
