COMPENSATION SAID
" TO BE BETTER PLAN
Washington Labor Leader De
clares Liability Act Is
Not So Equitable.
TWO SYSTEMS COMPARED
James II. Wallace Sajs Opposition
to Compensation Is Influenced
by "Ambulance Chasers",
and "Shyster" Lawyers.
Lbor organizations in Oregon are
opposed to the workmen's compensa'
tion plan. I believe, only where they
are influenced by 'ambulance chasers
and 'shyster lawyers, who. hare made
their livelihood out of legislation aris
ing under the employers' liability act'
This opinion was voiced last night
at the Multnomah Hotel by James H.
Wallace, of Olympia. a prominent labor
leader in the State of Washington, and
the labor representative on the Wash
Inston Industrial Compensation Com
mission.
"I am not Interested in the fight to
puss the compensation act in Oregon,
except as I am interested in anything
which is based upon humanitarian
principles." he said. "The liability law
recognises no Justice or equity be
tween the employer and the employe,
or 1 would have no objection to it. Tl
breeds distrust and enmity betwen the
employer and the workmgman, and
this distrust the lawyers who make
their profit from handling liability
cases keep continually stirred up.
Advantages Are Seen.
"Under the compensation system, re
lief comes to the injured workman, or,
if he is killed, to his family at once,
without ill feeling between the em
ployer and employe and the go-be
tween which under the liability sys
tern takes its share out of the money
that should go to the injured man or
those dependent upon him. namely
the casualty insurance company, is
eliminated from the transaction. There
is no place for the ambulance-chas
ing lawyer to come in for a share, but
the relief goes all where it belongs
to the injured man or to his family.
"Under the liability law also, there
is too much tendency when a workman
gets a good case,' to carry It out In
a spirit of vengefulness against tne
employer, which can have no other ef
fect than to widen the breach between
the employer and his men.
"The opposition to compensation in
Oregon comes from a small clique of
skilled workmen employed In the ex
tra hazardous lines of work, such as
the building trades. In which the ad
vantages from the employers liabil
ity to the workingman are unusually
large. But the liability act dors not
offer protection to more than 25 per
ci-nt of the workmen employed in haz
ardous occupations. 1 do not believe
that this small minority has a just
r';;ht to stand In the way of ihn other
75 per cent of worklngmen. who re
ceive no protection under the liability
set. but who would be assured of pro
tection under compensation."
. Flinrn Alleared MlsleadtOK.
lir. Wallace said that some of the
statistics advanced by representatives
of labor organizatlones opposed to
compensation are incomplete anl mis
leading. One of the Instances was in
tne quotation by the building trades
representatives, of the comparative
figures on accidents in Oregon, where
liability is in force, and Washington,
where compensation prevails. In an
equal length of time Oregon nad be
tween 5000 and 6000 accidents, while
the records In Washington showed
nearly 12.000. These figures were
used to uphold the contention of
the building trades representatives,
that compensation did not give the
workman the same protection from
accident that liability does.
"Those figures are substantially cor
rect," say Mr. Wallace, "but they are
far from a proof of the claim that the
building trades organizations bavo ad
vanced. Oregon employs, at most,
about 60.000 men who are under the
jurisdiction of the liability act, while
In Washington there are 135.000. Ore
can easily see from these figures that
the ratio of accidents in the two states
is practically the same. or. It any
thing, lower in Washington than in
Oregon.
"My main reason for upholding com
pensation as opposed to liahiiity is
that It offers protection to all men em
ployed In hazardous occupations, while
liability does not. It eliminates the
go-between, the casualty insurance
company, and keeps the workingman
out of the hands of the unscrupulous
lawyer. It gives relief to the injured
workingman practically at once, while
any relief received from liability comes
oniy after the case has been threshed
out In the court, and that Is very often
too late.
Mortgages Are Raised.
"In Washington the working of the
compensation act has resulted in bet
ter feeling between employer and em
ploye, and In better protection for all
of the worklngmen. Instead of a lim
ited class of worklngmen. Under the
compensation act. I will note, as just
one phase of the many lines in which
it has been beneficial, the fact that the
commission has raised mortgages from
many and many a home in cases where
accident or death had overtaken the
workman before he had finished pay
ing for it."
2 MEN IN CHURCH ROBBED
Palor I'renchlns "Thou Shalt Not
steal" When Thtef Kntcrs.
While Rev. J. Richard Olson, pastor
of the Swedish Lutheran Immanuel
Church. Nineteenth and Irving streets.
whs preaching Sunday night on the" text.
"Thou Shalt Not Steal." a sneakthief
entered the rear of the church and
sampled the hats and coats draped over
empty seat backs. He 'took a hat, coat
and pair of gloves.
After the services C Krlckson. a
parishioner, reported to the pastor that
a thief had taken his gray striped
cravenette overcoat and a pair of
brown gloves. Charles Swenson. also
in attendance, said that the robber had
made away with a fussy brown hat
belonging to him. and had left In itis
stead a greasy gray cap.
If the thief will restore hla parish
ioners clothing. Pastor Olson will see
that he is decently clothed, fed and
given some kind of work, he said, when
he reported the loss to the police
shortly after the close of the evening
service.
R0SARIAN HELD AT LINE
CnMonis Officers Make Mistake In
Identity or Excursionist.
Fred Lockley. who has returned
from the, excursion of the Royal Ko-
sarians to Southern California, has ait
adventure to tell in which he was al
most made the "goat" for Phil Met
schan, Jr., at the boundary line be
tween Tia Juana and San Diego.
"We'll have to hold you," said the
customs officer to him sternly. "You
slipped through here yesterday with
something."
"Surely a mistake." insisted Mr.
Lockley. "I've not been across the line
here before today."
"Yes, you were yesterday. was the
reply. "We have a report of -a big fel
low with a broad smile and a white
uniform with a red rose on the sleeve.
Wo'll have to hold you."
When he finally succeeded in get
ting through onto American soil once
more, Mr. Lockley told of his adven
ture at the hotel in San Diego. Phil
Metschan, Jr., roared.
"That other fellow was myself." he
said. "I went over to Tia Juana yes
terday." When he returned from Tia Juana
Mr. Metschan had simply put on the
power in his auto and sailed gaily
across the line, leaving with the cus
toms officers nothing but the descrip
tion of "a broad smile and a white
uniform" which had almost proved the
undoing of his successor.
STEAMER DEAL PENDING
LKWISTON" SERVICE JLIY BE
RESCMED.
New Company Desirous of Operating
on Snake IT Portland Traffic
Is Guaranteed.
Negotiations for the sale or lease
of the steamers of the -Open River
Transportation Company, so that ser
vice between the lower Columbia and
Lewlston can be resumed with the
opening of the season about March 1,
are under way now, and with assur
ance of traffic sufficient to make the
venture reasonably successful, a trans
action probably will be closed this
week.
Shippers and transportation men at
various points along the river are in
terested In the plan.
Several conferences have been held
In Portland between the steamship
men who want to buy or lease the ves
sels and members of the transporta
tion committee of the Chamber of
Commerce. Walter F. Burrell has sub
mitted a proposal to the Chamber ask
ing that a committee be named to work
with the Open River Transportation
Company to secure the regular opera
tion of steamers on the upper Colum
mla and Snake Rivers. The Open River
Transportation Company will be asked
to submit a. flgrre . for which the
steamers will be leased, and also a
figure at which they will be sold. The
company has four steamers and two
barges. Three of the steamers and
both barges operate : above Celilo
Rapids.
A delegation . of Lewlston business
men. including A. S. Stacy and Frank
Thompson, of the Lewlston Mercan
tile Company: Wallace R. Struble, sec
retary of the Idaho-Washington De
velopment League, and Dr. J. B. Mor
ris, were In the city last Saturday.
They are enthusiastic in their endeavor
to have regular service between Port
land and Lewlston next Summer.
The Hosford Transportation Com
pany and the Clatskanle Transporta
tion Company, both operating steamers
below Celilo, are Interested with the
upper rivermen in. the plan. In the
event that they cannot lease or buy
the vessels of the Open River Trans
portation Company, they propose to
use one or more ttf ' their own boats
on tho west end of the run and build
a new one for service on the east end.
It Is said that Captain Harry Rlggs
Is Interested in the project and that
he will have charge of operations
above the portage road.
.Members of the Chamber of Com
merce seem to be wilting to do some
thing that will provide adequate ser
vice between Portland and the Inland
Empire. It is expected that they will
be asked to guarantee tonnage suffi
cient to prevent the venture from be-
ng unprofitable if the negotiations
now in progress are successful.

Denver, which expects to get tne
tournament, is willing to take the 191S

would rather yield in favor of Port

However, if cash puses are guaran

work with a will to make the 1913
congress and tourney a success. -
31. E. Price, -English Llberalist, Says
Influence of Czar's Inroads Felt
Keenly and That Government
Suffers as a Result.
LONDON, Jan. 20. (Special.) M. E.'
Price, who is Liberal candidate for
Gloucester City, returned to London
after an adventurous journey across
Turkish Armenia, Khurdistan and
Northwest Persia, where he had oppor
tunities of observing how Russian in
trigues are working in Persia. He was
In Tabriz Just over a month ago, and
Is the last European to bring news
direct from Northwest Persia,
In an Interview, Mr. Price said:
"When I crossed the frontier Into
Persia I visited a Khurdish chief and
found that he had stolen 50,000 sheep
from the Turkish side in the Spring
of 1911. Since then he has been visit
ed by Russian agents and presented
with a Russian military decoration. It
was evident to me that these Khurdish
chiefs, who have been giving such an
noyance to the Turkish authorities,
had in many cases been taken directly
under the wing of the Russian agents.
"I was more than justified In this
idea when I arrived at the Persian
town of KhoU;' As 1 was walking In
the bazaar, accompanied by two Persian
gendarmes, lent to me by the Gover
nor, I was suddenly arrested by tour
Cossacks. My gendarme guard fled,
so I was at the mercy of the Russians.
They told me that Russian martial law
had been declared in that part of Per
sia, and that they had orders to arrest
foreigners.
Release Comes In Two Honrs.
"I was marched two miles out of
town and noticed a camp of at least
2000 Russian troops. There I had a
long argument with a Russian diplo
matic agent.
"I was released after .several hours
detention, and returned to Khoi. On
my way to Tabriz I passed some 1500
Russian troops marching toward the
Turkish frontier. I have information
were the troops stated by Sir Edward
Gray last October as having been with
drawn to the Caucasus. The truth is
that they have been sent to the TurkiBh
frontier, and are still In Persian terri
tory. Nor Is there any sign that the
Russian military occupation will cease.
I estimated about 10,000 Russian troops
In the Azerbijan and Khasvin provinces
of Persia.
"The effect of this occupation on the
Turco-Perslan frontier is to reduce the
Persian Governors to mere puppets in
the hands of the Russian military au
thorities, and, if it continues, it will
not be too much to say that the Rus
sian frontier has been shifted 100 miles
south of Mount Ararat.
Persian Government Strangled.
"The situation to Tabriz showed the
Influence of Russia UDon the Internal
politics of Persia." continued Mr. Price.
"Last Summer the Tipadar was appoin
ed Governor-General of the province by
the Persian Government. On his ar
rival at Tabriz he found Government
House occupied by Russian troops, who
refused to move out, and they were
occupying it while I was there. For
all matters of business tne Russian
Consul in Tabriz systematically ignores
the Governor.
"The Russian authorities are inter
fering to prevent the Belgian customs
officials from putting ine provincial
finances shipshape. In order to realize
the land taxes and revenue for the
purpose of maintaining the genoarmie,
a loan has been required. The Rus
sians have stopped the Belgians from
raising the loan and have comman
deered half tne transport ior tneir
troops.
"In this way the Persian Govern
ment is bilng strangled, and there ap
pears to be a total disregard of the
Amrlo-Russlan Convention by the self-
appointed Russian autocrats in this
which leads me to Deneve mat mese
part of Persia."

BY LEONE CASS BAER.
UNQUALIFIED Is the assertion that
"Salvation Nell," as offered by
the Baker Stock Company, is one of
the most ' pretentious productions of
the season. Scenically it is tremen
dous. The cast, too, has been so aug
mented that it reads like a page torn
out of the city directory. Each of the
supernumeraries,, even the folk who
merely walk past with the crowd, has
been as carefully chosen for the part
as have the principals.
It resolves itself into another In
stance of splendid Individual work by
every person who does his or her lit
tle bit toward producing the play
and a composite piece of stage art that
would make any stock organization
elsewhere sit up and envy the Baker
folk. The big, gripping power of Sal
vation Neli lies in its realism, and
its appeal to the everyday side of
emotions. Its pictures are the true-to-life
views not of lite in its aver
age walks, but of the poor and sordid
and miserable.
Back of It all, and holding it to
gether, is sentiment in its finest,
broadest meaning the love of man for
his fellow creature, and tho big, re
deeming love of a good woman for a
poor, derelict of manhood.
The moving spirit of the story is
the work of the Salvation Army. Its
mission of saving the fallen, rescuing
the helpless and weak is made the
prime thought of the story, with the
particular Incident of the life of one
wretched girl. Salvation Nell, who be
comes a brand plucked from the burn
ing.. Every one who reads or goes to
theaters, knows Kdward Sheldon's
story written for Mrs. Flske's presen
tation. Salvation Nell is a swamper in
a Bowery saloon, where she is ekeing
out a miserable existence for herself
and Jim Piatt, a bouncer in the saloon.
In an altercation he kills a man who
pays her attention, and is sent to
prison for ten years.
Nell Is left penniless and alone, to
choose between the- streets and the
army. She heeds the plea of Halle
lujah Maggie and joins the army and
becomes a factor in its rescue work.
Eight years later Jim returns to find
her living a life full of interest and
helpfulness, caring for their child,
born soon after his prison sentence.
Then her battle is between her duty
to the army and her co-workers, and
her inclination to leave with Jim.
Right conquers, and to make a fitting
and human-inspired climax, Jim for
sakes his ways and the story leaves
us with him groping with halting steps
to Salvation Nell, who stands in the
doorway of the mission, a figure typ
ical of light and life and love.
. Alice Fleming has been given an
opportunity to show character work in
this role, and rises far and away above
the actual demands of the role. In the
first act she sacrifices every vestige
of her beauty and personal charm to
become it seems In reality the poor
slattern of the slums, a child of en
vironment. Miss Fleming puts into
the role of a certain nobility of nature
and innate delicacy despite the rags
and pitiful lines. In the second act
she Is the happy, self-reliant mother,
hearing her little son's evening
prayers, and later fighting with all
her woman's artifice and pleas of af
fection for Jim, to give up a burglary
he has planned. Just the splendid act
ing, the restrained emotion of Alice
Fleming In this role, and the sight
of that wonder child actress. Mayo
Methot, in the little home scene, brings
tears.
Truly the second scene is a power
fully gripping one. Never has Robert
Conness been better cast. HIS char
acter roles of pieces of human flotsam
are remarkable for fidelity to life. His
portrayal is an exquisite gem. In ap
parel, hang-dog air and physical dls
hevelment, he is truly a Jim Piatt.
Mr. Conness emphasises the phycholog-
ical study of the man and shows him
to the audience from every viewpoint,
so that the judgment be not biased.
For that very reason one is torn be
tween pity for the derelict and con
tempt for his brutality to Nell.
The entire second act is theirs,
Nell's and Jim's, with Mayo Methot to
lend a lightsome touch, and Walter
Gilbert as Major Williams, who loves
Nell, to add interest in plot develop
ment. ,
If you've never seen Salvation Nell,
it's worth a visit If you have seen it,
it's worth a visit again. It will play
all week, with matinees on Wednes
day and Saturday, at the Baker.

Removes the Scum From the Tongue, Sweetens a Sour,

If ' headachy, bilious, dizzy, tongue

you belch undigested food and feel
sick and miserable, it means that your
liver Is choked with sour bile and your
thirty feet of bowels are clogged with
effete waste matter not properly car

most folks believe. It means that this
waste matter In the thirty feet of
bowels decays into poisons, gases and
acids and that these, poisons are then
sucked into the blood through the very
ducts which should suck only nour
ishment to sustain the body.
Most people dread physic They
think of castor oil, salts and cathartic
pills. They shlnk from the after
effects so they postpone the dose until
they get sick; then they do this liver
and bowel cleansing In a heroic way
they have a bowel washday That is
all wrong. If you will take a tea

night, you will never realize you have
taken anything until morning, when all
the poisonous matter, sour bile and
clogged-up waste will be moved on and
out of your system, thoroughly but
gently no griping no nausea no

real pleasure. Don't think you are
drugging yourself; It is composed en

Injury.
Ask your druggist for "Syrup of
