Coamtrr'a Growth Depicted.

address of the day. He pointed out
the growth of the United States, since
the war, from 10.000,000 to 100,000,000,
with great educational Institutions,
and other monuments of the progress
of the country. Mr. McCulloch said
that the wealth, the hope of the Na
tion and Its real assets are In the
common people, the rank and file, who
are inspired by patriotism.

American War Veterans, and Miss
Opal Bretx spoke for the women's
auxiliary. A drill was given in front

JUDGE KAVANAUGH TARGET
Lieutenant Smith, Despite Caustic
"Explanation" of Jurist, Says
Court's Action Is Derogatory
to Men and Organization.
In the face of a caustic letter from
Circuit Judge J. P. Kavanaugh, which
was received yesterday, Lieutenant
R. R. Smith, in charge of the United
States Naval recruiting office in Port
land, did not recede from the original
position taken by him in regard to the
sentence of Chester Clark, convicted
of larceny in a dwelling, to the peni
tentiary with a parole, with an alter
native implied that he must enlist in
' Following his sentence and parole,
the young man applied at the recruit
ing office for enlistment, but was re
jected by Lieutenant Smith, who then
addressed a letter to Judge Kavanaugh,
protesting against such action as de
rogatory to the character and stand
ing of the men In the Naval service
and pointing out that the Navy does
not serve the country as a penal Insti
tution. To this Jtfage Kavanaugh replied,
saying that the order of the court
had been misinterpreted by Lieuten
ant Smith and attributing his action
Y sT- .v'V "''?P'W ?J -"
to "half-formed ignorance
enthusiasm of youth."
Lieutenant Smith replied, reiterating
his stand, that the action of the court
was such as might be construed in a
light derogatory to the Navy. The
correspondence in the matter will be
transmitted and filed in the office of
the department at Washington. Fol
lowing in Lieutenant Smith's letter to I
Judge Kavanaugh: i
Sir: I beg leave to acknowledge receipt oi
your letter of July 14, 1914, relating to
charge of larceny and rejected by me as an
applicant for enlistment In the Navy. In
reading me kuibw.. . c.i ulu k . .u. .m.v,
as quoted by you, while It may not have
been your inentlon to offer the young man
(n .....tin. rh. .it,rn,Mvi nf eaine to the
penitentiary or enlisting In the Navy, or
some sea-oouna vessel, uio uuificssiuu men
the sentence conveys to me, to the news-
ently to the boy himself Is that this alter-
native was onerea 111111 cwiu m w
keep the District Attorney advised until ho
bad accomplished what appeared to him to
be the alternative offered.
It Is a remarkable coincidence that the
boy presented himself to me for enlistment
almost Immediately after the pronounce
ment of the sentence. I have a statement
from the boy ;over his own signature, aa fol
lows: "To whom It may ncern: On July 11,
1014 after pleading gully to the charge of
larceny of a dwelling' In the Circuit Court,
of which Judge J. P. Kavanaugh ia Judge.
I was sentenced to serve from one to seven
years in the State Penitentiary. The Judge
Informed me that he would, however, sus
pend sentence In my case providing that I
would Immediately enlist in the United
States Navy and report weekly to District
Attorney Hammersley during the term of
my enlistment. I have accordingly on this
date presented myself to Lieutenant (JG)
R. R. Smith, V. S. Navy, recruiting officer
for the Navy, in obedience to the above in
.tractions. CHESTER CLARK.
"Witnesses: R. L. Turner, Chief Yeoman.
U S. Navy: J. D. Q. Wognum, Chief Yeo
man." TJ. S. Navy." -
From the above and from the wording of
the sentence, wnnuui tuuomcm.a m un
fortunate connection made by the newspa
pers between the Navy and the Penitentiary.
It would seem that there were sufficient
grounds for calling forth a protest by an
officer representing the Navy In this city.
I regret exceedingly the personal tone taken
in your letter and beg to asssure you that-1
am acting purely In an official capacity,
solely with the object of preventing unfit
characters from entering the Navy and with
no desire whatever to-direct publicity to
An indignant gentlenan came to toe ma
rine recruiting office In this city on Monday
last and stated that he would not allow
his son to enter either the Marine Corps or
the Navy If he were going to "rub elbows,
to quote his own wore-, with men of this
type. It was this Incident which directed
my attention to this case. So it would ap
pear, therefore, that the public gained the
same Impression and that It became neces
sary to offset this unfavorable Impression. I
