NO TROUBLE MET IN RIVER Bis Vessel Makes Run From Port land to Columbia In Seven Hours and 20 Minutes Ten Boilers Cut in to Maintain Clip. ON V. S. S. MARYLAND AT SEA. VIA 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 cant where needed, aiding In work that they became familiar with aboard the cruiser Boston. Mllltla Meat Help 1.1ft Anchors. 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 assembling. 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 covered the distance from Portland to the Columbia River light vessel, in seven hours and 20 min utes, and that time would have been rut had it not been compulsory to slow down in the lower harbor for a launch to come alongside for Pilot Pease and Harbormaster Speler, who made the rjver trip. 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.

The coterie Club Has organized a Domestic Service Bureau. The bureau will be of benefit both to housekeep ers and housemaids, because it will protect the Interests of both parties, and will adjust all differences ot opin ion between mistress and maid. The 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 Is therefore exceedingly Interesting, a fact which was amply proved by the attention given when it was read -.t the Multnomah Hotel February last There will be musical numbers also. The programme will be at Eilers Hall uursday night. Salem Aids Resident Laborers. SALEM. Or.. June IS. (Special.) The City Council last night passed an ordinance requiring contractors who hold contracts for city work to give preference to resident laborers of Sa lem over foreign or outside workers. Deputy Sheriff Leonard, was' th chief witness yesterday for the prose cutlon in the trial of Jack Roberts for double murder on the Whitehouse Road. .He detailed the circumstantial evidence gathered against the defend ant by Sheriff Stevens, himself and other deputies in the Sheriff's office and identified several articles Intro duced in evidence. While Leonard was on the stand th state produced a box of cayenne pep per. It was identified by the witness, who said that it had been found in the pack which Roberts had in his possession when arrested. The state also produced bits of charred paper. 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 which the state contends the mask was cut and the cherry pits similar to those used to weight the mask which the murderer left behind him on the road. 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 penders. 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. Merchant Identifies Revolver. For the purpose of strengthening the proof of the defendant's actual possession of the 12-gauge pump gun in evidence Deputy District Attorney Fitzgerald called to the stand Frank Bishop, a hardware merchant of Goble, Or. Bishop said that the defendant was in his store on December IS or 19, 1911. and that the place was burglar ized two nights later. He positively Identified a revolver as his property and said that there was also taken at that time a knife, a pump gun and i cartridge belt similar to those in evi dence. He was unable to, positively identify the rifle because its number bad been tiled oil. 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 mas County,, southeast of Oregon City, said that the defendant was anx lous to see the newspapers. This was after Roberts had reached his home. where he arrived the night following that of the shooting. Papers Adamlttea Over Protest. Marshall said that he handed Rob erta a copy of a twice-a-week news paper of Portland, but that the de fendant, after glancing through it. said that it contained nothing about the subject in which he was inter ested. Adolph Walter testified that Roberts rode with him out of Oregon City on March 30, but commented only briefly on the murder, changing the subject thereafter when it was referred to. Deputy Sheriff Leonard said that Roberts had admitted reading news papers ot Portland on tne nignt oi March SO although he was not a fre quent reader.

When Mayor Rushlight's process servers, summoning witnesses to tell the police committee of the Executive Board why immorality exists in Port land, reach 'District Attorney Cameron, they are likely to meet with flat defi ance. What will follow thereafter is a matter of conjecture, but it is likely to be something lively. Replying to a denunciation of the May grand Jury, in which he was ac cused of slighting the duty of policing the town. Mayor Rushlight recently summoned a number of police officers to explain, and they asserted that the failure of their efforts was due to lack of co-operation on the part of the Dis trict Attorney and Municipal Judge. Then the Mayor announced that he would summon those officials to be present at an adjourned meeting and explain themselves. The meeting will be soo'n. HiiH the Mayor subpenaed yon yet?" Mr. Cameron was asked yesterday. "No, and I don't think he will. If he does, I won't go." "How can you get out of it?" "I'll Just say I'm too busy." When asked if he had determined positively 'to follow this line of action, the District Attorney said: . I may and I may not. power to Investigate any branch of the city government, and to summon wit nesses for that purpose. He cannot in vestigate Cameron's office, but be can require George J. Cameron, citizen, to appear before him as a witness regard ing city offices. No penalty clause is attached. WEEDS PUBLIC NUISANCE Owners of Property Who Fall to Clean Up Will Be Prosecuted.

Is now on in full swing, and appeal has been made to householders to assist the officers by reporting cases that come under their observation.' Arrest is threatened against every person who fails to re move the growth immediately. A more thorough campaign than In years past is promised, with a view to educating lot owners as to their obliga tion.

The city is empowered to docket liens . against the property after causing weeds to be cut, and may also proceed criminally against the owner or resi dent agent. Penalties range to $50 fine or 90 days' imprisonment. Weeds must not be allowed to attain a height of more than ten Inches. Albany Station Is Best Kept. ALBANY. Or., June 18. (Special.) A. A. Mickel.
