-H. R. Albee, Mayor-?lcct, made his
first public speech Flnce his election at
the Ad Club luncheon in the Portland
Htel yesterday noon.
Mr. Albee attempted to enter the
dining-room unostentatiously, but just
fi lie crossed the thresh hold he was
"spotted' by several of the admen and
Instantly became the center of inter
rat. A committee, of admen surrounded
him marched him three times about
the room while the Ad Club quartet
snatched up the drums from the orches
tra box and organized an Impromptu
tife and drum corps, and the members
of the club rose to their feet and
cheered uproariously for the new
Mr. Albee's speech wan short.
'Whatever misht have been the
political differences between any of us
before the -election." he said, "that is
all over now and we are facing the
problems of organization under the new
.system ana we must all work together
if It is to be done successfully.
Co.Operatlon 1m V'rared.
"I want the admen to stand by me
and all of us to work with our sole
purpose the greatest good to the great
city which we are trying to serve."
The regular programme of the meet
ing was devoted to speeches on army
subjects, by Colonel G. S- Young and
Major S. E. Smiley, of the Twenty-first
J nf an try. stationed at Vancouver.
VTalter It, Evans was chairman of the
"Discounting from our military force
which we have on paper," said Major
Smiley, "the men who are stationed in
the islands and the non-competent men
in the organization, the United States
can place in the field today a mobile
army of only about 25,000 men."
Major Smiley declared, however, that
the military problem which confronts
the United States, is one of organiza
tion rather than of building up a mas
sive fighting machine such as the Eu
ropean powers have developed. He
suggested that the existing military
force can best be rendered effective by
' concentrating its units instead of keep
ing them scattered about among forts
and barracks which have long since be
I liferent In Army Asked.
The National Guard was pointed out
as the principal effective source from
which the regular Army is to be aug
mented in time of war and urged that
the citizens of the United States should
take advantage -of opportunities of
fered for military training, or should
at least encourage those who are in
clined to take advantage of them.
Both Colonel Toung and Major Smiley
outlined the work which the Army
League of the United States aims to
do In arousing interest in the Army and
its efficiency, and an appeal was made
to the admen to become members of the
National League. Application blanks
and information "were distributed
among the members and at the coming
' meeting of the club the admen prob
ably will take definite steps toward
adding to the membership of the Army

Agnes Lee, star of "The Test,"

on her mother's side, she is re

When in Tacoma last week Miss
Lee was selected by the city to
pay honor to the hero dead ty

"The Test," in which Miss Lee
takes the part of tho "angel

postal officials were censors, and
the little company was advised
to expunge certain lines which,
the censors judged, would not
have been uttered by a real post

compelled Miss Jee and her play

One Hundred Thousand Dollar In
stallment Brings 88.70.
After three attempts to get what was
considered a reasonable bid for long
time 4 per cent water bonds, the ways
and means committee of the City Coun
cil yesterday gave up in despair and
sold $100,000 of the bonds at the lowest
price accepted for bonds in Portland in
many years. The issue went to Morris
Bros, for 88.79 cents on the iollar.
The sale was necessary on account of
the fact that the Water Department is
without sufficient operating funds to
carry on the work. A total of 1245.000
it is estimated, will be necessary to
carry the department through the Sum
mer. In addition to the $100,000 sold
the city purchased $143,000 of Xhe issue
from money in the city's general sink
ing fund. This part of the issue went
at S3. 78 per cent.
