' in the attempt we are now making to

"The only government that has as
sumed any special burden under the
treaty is the United States. England
and other countries have assumed no
burdens beyond the payment of the
tolls and the agreement as to its neu

whether the United States would have
a right to interfere if another coun

and declared that Canadian railroads
acted in svmpathy with American rail
roads, were behind Grea.t Britain's pro

Tanama Canal for United States ships.
Not the slightest objection was made

"until a committee of Canadian rail
road men took the question up with the
British government. .There is little
doubt that American transcontinental
railroads prompted the move." Know

Both the President and the Secre

Miss Mille Shloth and some 60 of her
pupils took possession of Windemuth

no definite place, but the boys that are
at all able to keep their heads above

automobile, with Ralph W. Hoyt, pres
ident of the Portland Rose Festival
Association; George L. Hutchln, Its
manager, and Hyas Tyee, George Al
len, who this year takes the place of
the King. He is a brother of Harrison
Allen of Portland. The Rosarians'
drill team followed next in line and
then came the second division of the
Pretty GlrU Kidnaped.
All along the line of march the Ro
sarians cut up capers, time and again
kidnaping young women and dancing
about them. They also captured po
licemen at different points and danced
around them, and the crowds yelled.
To the celebrated classic, "Every
body's Poin" It," the. -Rosarians
"ragged" In double ' and quadruple
style. And everybody was doing it.
What? Why, laughing.
Adjuant-General Flnzer, who is
high private in the ranks of Rosarians
was one of the best "raggers" of all;
George W. Joseph, State Senator and
usually . some dignified man, was no
slouch at it.
Ahead of the Rosarians was borne a
huge Caroline Testout rose, surmounted
on a staff, part of the time carried by
A. L. Stephens, and at other times by
Robert W. Morrow, who at most any
other time is a dignified circuit judge
The other hit of the parade was a
big bouquet of American Beauty roses,
surmounted on a staff. Each Rosarian
carried a rose on a 16-incb stem. Three
automobiles bearing Portland people
followed, including The Oregonian car,

way of Vancouver, Kalama, Olympia
and Tacoma by the Pacific Highway,
the road being in fine condition.
Rosarians Warmly Greeted.
Reaching Seattle on their special
train, the Rosarians were met by
Joseph Blethen, president of the Pot
latch and a committee. They were
formed In line and marched through
the depot to the streets, being "movled"
as they did so by an operator In the
employ of the Melvln G. Wlnstock Com
pany. Outside the depot tney . were
halted and photographed by an Orego
nlan photographer. They then started
for the Press Club, led by a hand. - The
women of the party were driven in au
tomobiles to the club where DreaK
fast of ham and eggs was served. It
was a beautiful morning and all were
happy and likewise hungry.
There was fun a plenty at the table,
the Rosarians giving their yells with
enthusiasm making a great hit. Half
an hour after the Portlanders were
seated the Spokane bunch headed by
Miss Spokane, otherwise Miss Margaret
Motie marched in. '
' "S-P-O-K-A-N-E It's the Indian,"
veiled the Rosarians, thus saluting
their friends from east of the rooun
"We thank you." Spokane shouted
During the breakfast, Charles Berg,
field marshal, sold his ham to a hungry
friend for 10 cents. Senator Joseph
at first said he would not eat ham, but
he changed his mind and ate it. - tne
Rosarians srreatly amused the " Seattle
newspaper bunch and the - officials of
the Potlatch by yelling "we want
water." during the breakfast. "How
thirsty we are." was another yell that
brought laughter even' time.
After breakfast the bunch marched
to the Seattle Hotel, their headquarters
where they registered and laid in wait
for lunch. There was a general round
of fun at the hotel, yells being given
constantly and new friends being made
by the Rosarians. uuring tne mncneon
at the Seattle grill, the gang sang its
sones and gave its yells.
"Who runs this placer' They
shouted, and then answered their own
question. Dickinson Where's-he from?
During this stay at the hotel. Crown

LOS : ANGELES, - July : 17. Be
cause of his - criticism of the 'proposed
new "Progressive party," as set ooit
in a statement Issued by him in Wash-
ington two days ago. United States
Senator Works was asked today
to ' resign by Lieutenant-Governor
Wallace. - Meyer . Lissner, - chairman
of the State Republican Central Com
mittee, and other prominent supporters
of Roosevelt. The suggestion that the
Senator resign was contained in a tele
gram dispatched to Mr Works In
The telegram, which was signed by
40 Progressives, including a number of
Assemblymen and State Senators who
helped to elect Mr. Works as Senator,
read as follows:
"We feel tHat your statement given
publicity through reactionary news
papers was unnecessary, unwise, based
upon lack of information and in certain
of its conclusions, false. Because of
the fact that you owe your place in the
United States Senate to the support
you received from the Progressive Re
publican voters of California, it ill be
comes vou. either to scold or to criti
cise them for their determination to
carry forward the fight along tste only
lines open to them unaer tne law.
"Due to the fact that you are re
puted to represent in the United States
Senate the cause lor wnicn we nave
contended so successfully In California,
your criticism can have no other ef
fect than to unfairly injure the very
movement that you were chosen to
foster and promote. To employ the
same line of reasoning that you use
in vour statement, we feel that if you
are out of harmony with the progres
sive sentiment in California that gave
you a-majority of the votes cast In
the Republican primaries two years
urn and can no longer work in har
mony with that sentiment. Then it is
your duty to resign ana come uunie, iu
the end that some one may be chosen
who will act in harmony with the pro
gressive sentiment of the greatly pre
ponderating masses or regiaierevi re
publican voters in California."

New Orleans, La., writes of the great
good done her husband:
"My husband suffered with stomaci
trouble for over 12 years, during which
time he doctored with three Unctors
who gave him no relief. He kpt
growing worse, had to be very careful
as to what he ate, as things always
soured on his stomach, but, thank God,
after taking three bottles of Duffy's
Pure Malt Whiskey he was entirely
cured. He still takes it as a tonic and
we would never be without it. He nr.v
looks fine and weighs ISO pounds. I
can hightly recommend It to any one
afflicted with stomach trouble.'1
