Chancellor Lloyd-George said the
government was confronted by the
necessity of speedily terminating the
strike, but that recourse to drastic
methods would create a perilous situ
ation. The bill was far from revolu
tionary. It had been accepted by many
owners and to prevent a national
calamity, which would result from pro
lonaattdn of the strike. It waa worth
experimenting with, liven though the
remedy provided was only temporary,
it gave the nation time to devise a
more permanent solution of the prob

bill through this week In a form toler

Lord Robert Cecil. Conservative,
characterised the government's bill aa
the climax of "a great conspiracy on
the part of a small band of revolu

He charged members of the syndi
cate with purposely engineering the
strikes, and pointed out thai the leader
of the Labor party In the House of
Commons had declared this was only
the besmnlng of a campaign for a
fixed minimum wage In all trades. The
bill was an admission that the govern
ment yielded to pressure and It would
produca a crop of fresh strikes.
At a meeting of the Miners' Federa
tion tonight, much discontent waa ex
prr,,ed at the Indefinltenesa of the
minimum wage provisions. The gov

the miner return to work Monday.
Therefore everv effort will be made to
get the bill through. The House of
Lords will hold a special sitting Sat
urday to tarry the measure through
the necessary stages. Charles Fen

think It will be necessary to take a

While deposit In the banks through
out the State of Oregon show an In
crease of I.:01.2S.3 and total de
posits of f ll.tf.62i.2. at the close of
business February SO. 1 1 3. according
to a statement completed by buperln
tendent of Banks Wright today. It re
mained for the banks of Portland to
keep the deposit of the banks through
out the state from showing a decrease.
The comparative figures are between
January 7. 111. and February 0. ISIS.
The Increase in deposits In Portland
banks was f l.tJ1.7:.39. The figures of
I4.101.39S.71 for the entire state, in
cludes the banka of Portland. Thus It
Is shown, thst exclusive of tho Port
land banks, if a statement were pre
pared that the banks outside of Port
land would show a decrease of 1430.-
4.4J.M. Thl la probably accounted for
by the fact that at thl time or the
year large sums of money are being
sent into Portland by the store of
the state for purchases from Portland
wholesale and jobbing houses.
The entire showing of banka of Ore
gon aa a whole 1 considered as exceed
ingly satisfactory and flattering, how
over. Loans and discounts show an
Increase of S3.32S.o:i.70. The losns and
discounts for 113 are I7S.71 rt.0ti.J
and for 1!'. were I73.4S3.043.33.
Overdrafts have shown a decided de
crease throughout the state, but among
the banka of Portland there was a
slight Increase. The decrease In the
accounts thst were overdrawn totaled
S4A4.s0. The total overdrafts for the
last report were i:.3:4.7 and for the
prior report were IH3o.lis.43. Issuance
of warnings by the various banks of
the state early In the year that over
drafts would not be tolerated In Lb
future. Is taken largely as the reason
for this decrease and It ia believed thst
similar decrease will bo shown in fu
ture reports as In many places the
rule la being rigidly followed.
Cash on hands snd due from banks
shows a total of 4l.f7s..4S.S5 for the
last report as against 40.:Cfi.S33.S9 of
the preceding report, making an in
crease of 11. 313.011. 4.
The report Is considered a moat high
ly satisfactory one by the banking
department and Indicate ever Increas
ing prosperity on the part of the
banks all over the state. The apparent
decrease shown In bank deposits out

to the amount of deposits carried and

Just at the time when many merchant

Adjutant-General J"in.er Receives
Letter I-Yom Major-Gencral
" Young Anent Pay Hill.
Question as to the members of the
state militia being available for duty
outside of the United States was set
tled yesterday when W. K. Finzer, Adjutant-General
of the Oregon National
Guard, received a letter from Major
General Young announcing that tho
Judge-Advocate-General. the Attorney
General and the Secretary of War
agreed on an amendment to the pay
btll now being considered, by Congress.
Should the bill, granting compensa
tion to members of the National Guard
by the Federal Government, bcnome a
law, the amendment agreed upon by
the officials of the War Department
will make it possible for the President
to call upon such troops for service
TTi foreign countries without further
enlistment, or muster in. This latest
communication from the War Depart
ment, it l said, should dispel all un
certainty and discouragement in the
minds of members of the Oregon Na
tional Guard occasioned by the recent
decision of the Attorney-General. f
The amendment in question follows:
Provided further, that any portion of the
ortunlzfd militia receivine the benefits or
this act max, in t5 time of war. or when
var Is imminent, or In other grave emer
gencies reiiulrinn the use of troops beymut

In excess of the regular army, by orrler or
tif President and without further enlist
ment or muster in. bo tranfrerre, to the
Armv of the rnlterl stated, am when so
transferred It shall be available for all pur-piuu-s
for which the regular Army or vol
unteer ferces raised under the authority of
existing law may be employed.
"Although the Attorney-General has
declared unconstitutional the present
law permitting tne employment of
state militia outside of the United
states, there Is no question but that
it can he done, and the only reason for
amending the pay bill is to eliminate
aU possible doubt as to the present
law's vaiildity," said General Finzer, in
commenting on General young's let
ter. "There seems little doubt but that
the pay bill will pa?s. General Vouny,
who Is directing the campaign for its
passage, is optimistic at: to its fate.
"In amending fie bill, the Attorney
General. Secretary of War and Jtidge-Advocate-General
am agreed that
there can no longer ho any question
but that the National Guard can he
ordered to duty outside, of United
States territory in times of war or
when war Is imminent."
Indication that the Guard is to be
raised to a higher degree of efficiency
in anticipation of possible service in
Mexico is shown by an order issued
bv Adjutant-General Finder yester-
day. announcing tliat all members of
the National Guard who enlisted with
in the past six months or who are con
sidered by company commanders to be
physically reduced, will be required tn
take a physical examination. This ex
amination is to be held under the su
pervision and instruction of the. senior
medical officer of the state. The com
manding officers of all units are ad
vised that a stricter compliance with
the requirements of the United States
physical examination for recruits will
be necessary hereafter. This is es
pecially urged by reason of the- fact
that there will be less delay in muster
ing the Oregon National Guard into
service of the United States, if it is
called upon for service.
