1LWACO. Wash, June 17. (By wireless
to The Oregronian, delayed In transmis
sion.) Heading down the coast at a
15-knot clip, which will be continued
lor 24 hours under orders for a coal
test, the second annual cruise of the
Oregon Naval Militia has taken shape.
The Maryland is holding to a course be
tveen eight and nine mtles off shore,
and at 7:30 o'clock passed Cape Meares.
It is calculated that at 7 o'clock In
the morning the vessel will pass Cape
Blanco, but by then will be about 26
miles off shore, and she is to steam 15
miles to the westward of the whistling
buoy. San Francisco is to be reacnea
between S and S o'clock Wednesday
morning, and 24 hours after coaling
ship the cruise will be continued soum.
It has been a strenuous day for the
Naval Militia division, and the tired
members have the satisfaction of know
ing they have participated in all work
performed since leaving Portland. In
the fireroom. facing the ten boilers
that are in use of the battery of 1. are
men from Oregon, and also in the black
gang are oilers who are pouring lubri

they became familiar with aboard the

In the deck divisions are scattered
the militiamen, and they did their
share in getting the Maryland's
anchors up before leaving Portland
They helped in any other labors to
which the regular crew turned.
It was 9:10 o'clock when the Mary
land's bow was pointed down stream
and the cruise began, and at 10 o clock
the mixed crew was summoned to quar
ters and drill. In that drill citizen
sailors bad their first task of calisthen
ics as performed aboard a man-o'-war.
With the same spirit of willingness that
they evidenced in assisting In getting
up boats and stowing deck gear, the
state force followed the snappy exer
cise movements. They displayed no
fatigue on being assembled for the
same movements at 1:30.
In the morning they were given drill
In foot movements, ending with the
several minutes in double time on the
quarter deck. Drill in the afternoon
was with -small arms. and. while the
militiamen were put through the paces
by regular officers, the executives of
the militia were called on to handle
their men when they had been assem
bled by companies. Big-gun drill like
wise was added to the day's routine in
In the meantime the men were curtly
told that only the uniform prescribed
must be worn, and that the cuffs of
blouses were to be turned down, and
similar details looked after. It was un
necessary to repeat the admonition.
Good Speed Malatalaed.

The Maryland entered the Columbia
drawing 25. S feet, and drew 25.8 feet on
' the outward trip, having taken 300 tons
of water at Portland. There was not
the slightest difficulty experienced, and.
although she left down with seven
boilers working, two additional were
cut in at 12:10, and the tenth boiler
later. She covered one stretch of five
miles in It minutes, and another of 20
miles In one hour.
Captain Elllcott left the bridge only
when the Maryland was well beyond
the light vessel.
A smooth bar and a current setting
to tne southward were the favorable
conditions, but a decidedly fresh north
west wind was on.
Few of the militiamen have been
bothered so far by sea sickness, al
though some sought resting places soon
after getting outside.

to Aid Maids and Mistresses.
The coterie Club Has organized a

will be of benefit both to housekeep

protect the Interests of both parties,
and will adjust all differences ot opin

Domestic Service Bureau is designed
to sustain itself financially, but is not
intended to be a money making enterprise.
To place this enterprise firmly on its
feet, Mrs. Mina Larowe has vol
unteered to read "Every woman." This
play is a satire on modern affairs, and

chief witness yesterday for the prose
cutlon in the trial of Jack Roberts for
double murder on the Whitehouse

which it was contended are the rem
nants of the label of the box.
These pieces of paper, the witness
declared, were picked up in the old
Jonathan Tice house, where Roberts
is supposed to have passed the night
before the murder. A new tin of cay
enne pepper with the label intact was
introduced for comparison.
Pepper Exhibit Explained.
The state infers that Roberts had
the pepper for the purpose of throw
ing hounds off his trail. Leonard said
that Roberts had several times spoken
ot bloodhounds and the effect .ot
cayenne pepper on tnem.
In the deserted Tice house also were
found a piece of pillow casing which
corresponds to a fragment found near
where the murder occurred, the rem
nants of a vest from the lining of

was cut and the cherry pits similar to
those used to weight the mask which
the murderer left behind him on the
This witness also identified a piece
of leather from the back of a pair of
suspenders. This also had been found
in the . Tice house, he said. At this
juncture the suspenders worn by Rob
erts were produced and the jurors
satisfied themselves by personal ex
amination that the piece of leather
corresponds to a fagged piece missing
from the back of the defendants sus
The defense brought out on cross-
examination that the leather
found on April 13, but that it was not
till April 25 that the discovery of the
defendant's probable connection with
it was made.

and said that there was also taken at
that time a knife, a pump gun and i
cartridge belt similar to those in evi

identify the rifle because its number

The defendant's attorneys objected
to Bishop's testimony, declaring that
it was evidence of another crime and
immaterial to the proof of the charge
contained In the murder indictment.
Judge Morrow overruled the objection.
Fred Marshall, who lives near the
home of Roberts' mother, in Clacka

City, said that the defendant was anx

after Roberts had reached his home.
