Nothing of a discourteous kind even

From the first, however, there was a

confidential Intercourse, intimating the
existence of some adverse influence.
"Tils manner waa autocratic. If not

BERKELEY FACULTY MEMBER
Professor Says Reference to Decla
ration of Independence as "Cam
paign Document" Not Sneer.
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 17. (Special.)
Denying that his characterization of
the Declaration of Independence as a
"campaign document" was' Intended to
belittle the Declaration itself or the
cause which brought it forth. Professor
Henry Morse Stephens, of the Univer
sity of California faculty, today said
that there was no truth In the charges
that he has made sneering remarks re
garding the most cherished American
traditions. He deplored the accusations
made against him, especially as a mem
be of the history department in the
State University, and insisted that he
had the deepest reverence for the men
and events prominent in the patriotic
history of the country.
Professor Stephens' name was used in
a resolution before the Legislature pro
testing against the spread of anti
American teachings in the public
schools. The resolution was passed at
the special session. Professor Stephens
explained his reference to the Declara
tion of Independence as a campaign
document, saying that it was so in fact,
since It pointed out the grievances
which brought on the war of the Revo
lution and set forth the justification of
the purpose of the colonies to throw off
the yoke of British rule.
It was also, said Professor Stephens,
a declaration of principles of great
splendor and importance. He had spo
ken of this, he said, from public plat
forms on Washington's birthday and
the Fourth of July, and declared that It
was absurd to accuse him of casting
slurs on any of the American traditions.
GOWNS OF FAIR SEX SCORED
Women of State University Subject
of Editorial in College Paper.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Jan. 17.
Criticism is leveled at the women of
the university for wearing formal
clothes to the informal student body
dances by an editorial appearing In
tonight's issue of the Emerald, the
plaint being that the only difference
between the formal and informal
dances lies in the circumstance that
the men wear sack suits and that
white gloves are foregone by women
and men alike.
In addition to the four formal uni
versity dances of the year there are
four lnformals when, it is understood,
elaborate dresses, dress suits, livery
conveyance, flowers and all other sem
blances of formality are to be dispensed
with, in order that every "rich man,
poor man, beggar man, thief may feel
in strict harmony with the dancing ar
ray. The wear of elaborate gowns,
complains the student editor of the
Emerald, tends 'to humiliate the uni
versity women who are blessed with
but one party dress in a season.
The recommendation Is that correc
tive steps be taken by the leading wo
men of the university through the
agency of the women's council.

United States Revenue Cutter Puts

SEATTLE. Wash., Jan. 17. (Special.)
With augmented batteries transform

the United States revenue cutter Thetis
came over from Bremerton to take on
stores and prepare, for departure to
her home station at Honolulu.
At the Navy-yard at Bremerton her
battery of two one-pounders was al
tered to four three-pound machine
guns. These, "It is thought, will render
the Thetis a formidable vessel for
her class and will command the re
spect of .Japanese poachers who, for
years, have been guilty of poaching
and ruthlessly destroying plumage
birds on the islands in the Hawaiian
group, where the Thetis will operate
during the Winter.
Captain Cochrane expects to get

Nine in Box Passed by
TEST BY STRANGER ALLEGED
Venireman Declares Man
Asked His Opinion of Case.
THREE OF PANEL ARE LEFT
Nine Peremptory Challenges Allowed.
Selection of Men to Try Pro
moter May Be Completed
Early Next Week.Cv
Encouraging: progress was made yes
terday in selecting prospective Jurors
to serve in the Louis J. Wilde embez
zlement trial, three more veniremen
having qualified tentatively, making a
total of nine passed for cause by the
prosecution and the defense. Counsel
confidently expects at today's session
to obtain the other two necessary to
fill the Jury box. It will then be up
to both sides to exercise their peremp
tory challenges, the state being en
titled to three and the defense to six.
Unless the peremptorles are generally
applied, counsel Is hopeful of complet
ing the Jury before Saturday noon,
when an adjournment will be taken
until Monday. If each side resorts to
its full quota of peremptory challenges.
It Is conceded the selection of the 12
Jurors will require two or three daya
The three veniremen passed for cause
yesterday are: M,artin Sattler, con
tracting painter, 422 Going street; J. A.
McArthur, merchant, 106 Skidmore; W.
G. Eaton, real estate broker and stock
inspector for Oregon Humane Society.
73 Eaat Sixteenth. ;
Three Are Excused.
Three other veniremen were chal
lenged for cause by counsel for the
defense and excused by Judge Kava
naugh. They were Fred Gaebler and
Herman Sauers, 'both laborers, and M.
Tannler, dairyman. Gaebler was dis
qualified because of his unfamiliarity
with the English language. Sauers
and Tannler had not taken out their
final ' citizenship papers and for that
reason could not qualify. When court
adjourned, F. E. Jackson, a commercial
traveler, residing at 12S2 Belmont
street, was being examined as to his
qualifications as a juror.
First of the sensations promised by
both sides in the trial of the Wilda
case developed yesterday In the ex
amination of Martin Sattler, 422 Going
street, who was finally passed for
cause by both sides. Sattler has been
passed by Mr. Malarkey, representing
the defense, and it was while being
questioned by Special Prosecutor Clark,
for the prosecution, that the venireman
made the announcement that he had
been aproached at his home by a mys
terious stranger who undertook to ob
tain from him an expression of his at
titude with respect to the Wilde cace.
Stranirer Thought Insane.
"A stranger, short, heavy set, with
dark mustache and about 50 years of
age, came to my home about 9 o'clock
one morning in the recent silver thaw,"
testified Sattler. "He asked me If I
took contract werk, explaining that he
had a house he wanted painted. I
told, him that I accepted contracts,
whereupon the stranger said that he
would conclude the arrangement sub
sequently when the weather was bet
ter. He -urned to me suddenly and
abruptly asked: "What do you know
about the Wilde case?" I answered
him by saying: 'I don't know a
thing about it.' The visitor then re
marked that he was a member of the
jury and was on his way to the Court
house. I asked him to wait a minute
and I would accompany him, but he did
not wait. He could not get away fast
enough. From his conduct I thought
the man insane."
This recital by Sattler resulted in his
further examination by Mr. Malarkey,
representing the defense. Replying to
a"-question, Sattler said he had never
before seen the stranger, who did not
intimate whether he was Interested in
or employed by the prosecution or the
defense for feeling out Jurors as to
their attitude toward Wilde. Sattler
said he did not report the incident to
either the District Attorney's office or
to the lawyers for the prosecution. The
only person to whom he told his ex
perience was Louis Haertleln, a fellow
Juror, and then not until the work of
selecting a Jury to try Wilde had be
gun. Prejudice la Denied.
Mr. Malarkey undertook to have Sat
tler describe the visitor more spe
cifically and inquired if the juror
knew a number of detectives connect
ed with William J. Burns' Portland
agency, enumerating Clyde Nicholson.
William J. Wright, Ted Long, Otto J.
Kulper, Geoge Constable and a man
named Vlke. Sattler did not know any
of them and maintained that the cir
cumstance had not created In him any,
prejudice either for or against the de
fendant on trial.
When Mr. Malarkey had finished, Mr,
Clark resumed his questioning of Sat
tler as to his acquaintance with a
number of private detectives, implying
that those inquired about were in the
