M'NULTY IS AROUSED
NAVAL RESERVE OFFICER IS
WRATHY AT SCHOOL BOARD.
He Declares Janitor of Building De

Services Than Agreed' TTpon.
"Public-spirited men bearing tbe com
missions of the Governor of Oregon aa
the legally constituted body to defend
the Uvea of the people of this state have
been grossly insulted and baselesely lied
about through the Instrumentality of the
School Board of the City of Portland and
its subordinates. Ita subordinates princi
pally, aa the Board itself must act upon
the statements of Its subordinates," said
John McNulty? commander of tbe Ore
gon Naval Reserve.
Mr. McNully declares that the whole
trouble arose when be refused to pay the
Janitor ti a night for his services. Fifty
cents a night, he says, was finally com
promised upon at a conference at
which School Clerk Thomas said that
the Janitor wsv entitled to 15 a night.
Commander McNulty takea the position
that he waa given tbe right of access
to the school building by the Board of
Education and consequently should not
have had to deal with tbe Janitor. He
believes that this collection of money
by the Janitor was beyond that person's
authority. Like George S. Shepherd,
captain of the Reserve, he denies each
of the chargea preferred against his men.
Mr. McNulty concluded his statement
"'Many of our men hold university de

Recounts Beauties of Trip.
At a special meeting of the executive

upon the snow-peak which shall be vis

finitely decided to make the ascent of

Glacier Park, which is about the height
of Mount Baker, approximately 10.000 feet,
is the' center qf the most magnificent
glacial system In the United States.
From its mountain heights, no less than
400 snow-peaks can be seen at a single
glance. The view Is said to surpass that
of the famous Khigl in Switzerland.
A. S. Pattullo, of this city, who Is
familiar with the Swiss mountains, vis
ited the Chelan region with a small
party of Mazamas several years ago,
making the ascent of Mount Sahale, a
neighboring peak, the view from its sum
mit being more inspiring, in his opinion,
than any to be found in the Swiss Alps.
The upper waters of the Columbia
River, which flow through the Chelan
country, traverse a mountain region of
Incomporable grandeur and beauty. Prob
ably no other river in the world can lay
claim to scenery of such sublimity and
varied loveliness. Yet tew, indeed, are
those who have visited it and become
acquainted with its marvelous glacial
lakes, clear as crystal, mountain parks,

"The chief point on tho lake for
photographing, hunting, fishing and
climbing. Is Railroad Creek, 50 miles
up the lake. Railroad Creek comes from
the , 'Roof of the World,' having its
source In the very heart of a great
group of glaziers. It descends probably
6000 feet in 26 miles. It is swift! The
fury with- which It hurls logs and even
boulders down its cataract bed is fairly
appalling. The very earth quivers be

Great Mist Arises.
"Four miles up the Stehekin we reach
Rainbow Falls, heralded by distant gusts
and eddies of mist, which at first seem
to be from woods on fire. But a dull
roar, a harsh rumble, then a lighter
splash, and we see that what at first
bad seemed smoke eddying out of the
canyon wall is the mist driven before
the gusts created- by the falling torrent.
With a few more hurried steps we find
ourselves before a fall 350 feet high. Its
clouds of spray swirl like a thunder
shower, drenching the rocks and trees
far around. - Picking our way amid the
pelting mist to the top of a slippery
hillock from which we can look right
down into the very heart of the fall,
ii, see, swinging against the mist a per
fect rainbow, a complete double circle, a
blaze of luster. The bridge of Iris or
Helmdall. we say but no; it is no more
a bridge, it is a perfect circle, the sym
bol of eternity.
"Imagine a park of four or five thou
sand acres set with grass and flowers,
fillet with ice-cold streams of water,
clear as crystal and dotted here and
there with trees of the most exquisite
beauty. On every side except the one
down which the creek descends, stupend
ous, glacier-crowned and pinnacled peaks
penetrate the blue-black sky at an ele
vation of 10,000 or 11.000 feet. At the
south side of the park lies Glacier Lake,
a mile long and half as wide, margined
with vivid grass, brilliant flowers and
trees of the Alpine type, clear as crys
tal, unless darkened by some sudden
scud from the heights.
"Divide" Is Thrilling.'
"Passing west of Glacier Lake through
the enchanted North Star Peak, a ver
itable land of Beulah, we climb 1000 feet
higher and find ourselves at one of those
thrilling points in the mountains, a 'di
vide.' We are on the crest of the Cas
cade Mountains. To the east the water
flows to Lake Chelan, thence to the Co
lumbia and thence to the Pacific by a
journey of 600 miles. To the west the
water descends through the Sauk and
the Skagit to Puget Sound, only 150
miles away. This pass is almost always
wrapped in clouds and it is fittingly
known aa Cloudy Pass.
But the greatest sight, the crowning
