BERLIN". May S. (Special.) In the
budget committee of the Reichstag,
where the army estimates were under
discussion, the Prussian Minister of
War replied to the perennial question
why Jews cannot become officers in the
army. He stated what has been
stated by himself and his predecessors
year by year namely, that the army
administration acts on the principle of
equality of rights, and is ready at all
times to examine each individual case.
He added, however, that he was not in
a position to Interfere directly in the
election of officers. A representative
of the Center party protested sharply
against the unfavorable treatment of
Jewish aspirants for the rank of offi
cer, and asked if the choice of reserve
officers might be taken away from
the reserve officers' corps and trans
ferred to the active officers' corps.
If this could be done, he stated, many
causes for complaint in respect of un
equal treatment on religious or polit
ical grounds would be removed.
General von Heerlngen declared that
there were many objections to the
proposal, one being the fact that ac
tive officers could have no knowledge
of the standing and other personal re
lationships of the candidate. A repre
sentative of the Radical parties wished
to know how many Jewish one-year
volunteers had been promoted to be
aspirants for officer's rank or had been
selected as officers In the Reserve dur
ing the past year, to which the War
Minister replied that no statistics on
the subject existed, and that accord
ing to the regu'.atlons every qualified
one-year volunteer could be promoted,

that full freedom must be left to the

CANDIDATE FAVORS PURCHASE

Garbage Reduction Plant Outside of
City and Sale of By-Products
H. R. Albee, Progressive candidate
for Mayor, In his address laBt njzb
in the North Portland Library, Kill
lngsworth avenue, declared that he
stood for a municipal house-cleaning,
elimination of corrupt public men fro
office, raising the standard of public
purity, and. If the new charter were
adopted, the election of one or more
women as commissioners.
Mr. Albee pointed to the reports of
the municipal experts In support of his
contention that a house-cleaning is
needed In Portland, although, he said It
had been apparent for some time. In
speaking of the commission charter Mr.
Albee declared that he favored com
mission form both in the city and
state and the charter as proposed be
cause he considered Its good points
outweighed its defects.
"We must have a commission gov
ernment," he said, "and if we get the
charter tomorrow we can work under
It until Its defects have been remedied;
but after all it is a matter of men
under either charter and the Mayor
could, under the present charter, stop
the lax methods that have been
brought to light."
Mr. Albee declared that he favored
the purchase of Council Crest for Its
rfreat beauty and value and also the
bond Issue for parks and playgrounds,
but was opposed to the purchase of
Ross Island at the present time. He
said that the police department is not
conducted In the interest of good gov
ernment, for the reason that the Chief
o Police is not permitted to so run
In answer to a question from J. H.
Nolta Mr. Albee declared himself In
favor of a garbage-reduction plant lo
cated outside of the city where the
by-products might be saved and sold
He said that such a method of dispos
ing of garbage would be less expensive
to taxpayers, and that, instead of less
than one-half the people being served
as at preselt, all the people would have
their garbage taken care of. Mr. Al
bee answered many questions from the
women In the audience about public
affairs, and he commended them for
Mrs. M. L. T. Hidden and C. H. Beard
spoke briefly. Mrs. Hidden Indorsed
the commission charter and urged wo
men to vote for It. She said that Mr.

Spokane, Wn., May 2, 1913
Purported interview purposely garbled and misrepre-
sented for eleventh-hour roorback. No "weak spots" in
Portland charter that are not discounted a hundred
times by general provisions of commission government.
Tell Citizens of Portland not to be side-tracked by tech

rect these. Vote for real question, which is commis
sion form of government.
