LONDON, July 27. The Daily News
calls the affair at Dublin a massacre

could not prohibit the Nationalists
from doing the same.

VICTORIA, Mexico. July 25 (Via La

the present revolution has excited ad
miration of military experts from all
over the world, the mobility of the
administration forces has been no less
With the burden of administering tne
affairs of a portion of Mexico, embrac

miles on their shoulders faced with
the necessity of transporting, feeding
and paying 100.000 men in the field
and supplying them with arms and
ammunition, and with the pressure of
International affairs necessitating im
mediate solution through intricate
diplomatic channels heavy on them.
General Carranza and his administra
tive officers have moved thousands of
miles under tremendous difficulties.
There never has been a permanent
capital or headquarters for the consti
tutionalist administrative forces.
Archives Accompany Carranaa.
Wherever General Carranza goes,
the records, archives and administra
tion forces of the constitutionalist gov
ernment accompany him. Frequent
changes of base necessitated by polit
ical and military exigency have so ac
customed his official family to prompt
removals that they change their scene
of operations without confusion. The
archives are carried in padlocked
wooden cases numbered and painted a
different color for each department.
Within 30 minutes after the order to
move is received, all papers and cor
respondence are packed onto wagons
and taken to General Carranza's spe

Private Secretary la Press Censor.
Carranza's private secretary, Gus
tavo Ilspinoza Mireles, In addition to
his other duties, is official censor of
press matter from Carranza's head
quarters. He meets the newspaper
men twice a day to give them informa
tion. Much of General Carranza's per
onal C rrespondence is handled by
Mr. Mireles on long automobile trips
into the country on which he and
General Carranza are along and can
work uninterruptedly. There Is no
eight-hour day at Carranza's head
quarters, where the clerks work from
early morning until late at night.
Five o'clock Is Carranza's hour for
rising. He usually takes a brisk
horseback ride immediately after that
hour. Many of his important confer
ences have been held on these rides.
M i ii y a business man. both Mexican
and American, has been dismayed when
invited to ride with the chief and dis
cuss his affairs at that hour. From

from his ride until he goes to bed at

The coming week in the fresh-air
campaign Is looked forward to by the
Associated Charities as Its busiest one
since it began tnree weeks ago. The
outfitting of parties of children to be
sent to the country will occupy much
of the time today and tomorrow.
Forest Grove yesterday swung into
the movement with unbounded enthu
slsm. Places for more than a dozen
children were pledged before Mrs. R. E.
Bondurant and Mrs. Margaret Thoro
man, who went from Portland to con
fer with the people of that city, re
turned last evening. A committee also
was appointed which will arrange for
places for 50 or more children in the
country districts around Forest Grove.
Secretary Manning went out on the
Estacada line yesterday to look over
property in the country which might
be suitable for the Fresh-Air farm to
be established next year, if a sufficient
fund over and above the expenses of
the present Summer fresh-air work is
secured from the liberal donations that
are coming In from Portland and other
cities of Oregon.
A party of not more than five will
be sent tomorrow to Tillamook, and on
the day following the 15 children who
have been organized for Newberg will
leave. Preparations have been madb
for a lawn party for the children on

to the homes where they are to be en

Who Has Work for Man
62, and Willing?
Ready to Do Any Sort of Labor and
Able to Do Many Things, He Is
Yet Unable to Obtain Modest
Wages and Board.
PORTLAND, July 26. (To the Edi
tor.) Possibly I can secure the
publication of this long unpaid adver
tisement by remarking at the outset
that it has seemed to me that some
more effective means of bringing men
wanting help and men wanting work
together could be devised. Many men
In this city need and apparently can
not get work; but are there not also
some men at least, in city or country,
who need and might employ some of
these laborers, at moderate wages?
1 confess that I am an old man, or
so rated, but I doubt not that there are
people who would be glad to secure
my labor, at the small wages I would
ask. Through an ad In The Oregonian
I secured a month's work on June 16
In Clackamas County, for $15 and good
bed and board. Including choring, 1
worked almost constantly from 5:30 to
8. excepting time for meals: and my
work haying, hoeing, picking cherries
and berries, milking a cow, providing
firewood, etc.. was entirely satisfac
tory. Though 62 years old, I can do as
well elsewhere, or at any not very
heavy or rushing work in the city. 1
am intelligent and reliable, in whatever
I would undertake to do, in spite of the
discreditable, or at least suspicious, fact
that at that age I am broke and "down
and out" But assuming the suspicion
to be correct, I will agree with any
responsible employer that except for
small necessaries he shall retain my
wages until he is satisfied that I am
competent and faithful, or I will ar
range In any way that none of the
money earned will go for "booze." And
I will work awhile for 10 a month be
sides board and room. If a man has
been exceedingly foolish, but he Is able
and willing to do better, even at my
age. will nobody give him the chance?
Last Friday and Saturday I walked
many miles through the rich farming
section of Clackamas and Eastern Mult
nomah counties, but perhaps through
timidity did not find an employer. Sun
day I walked nearly 1- miles to avoid
paying more than 5 cents fare show
ing at least some effort and leg ability
on my part. I have just enough money
tor a 10-cent bed for two nights and
one 10-cent and one 5-cent meal a day
for two days, Monday and Tuesday. I
am registered as G. Pratt and have a
bunk in room 18 at the Eastern Lodging-House,
corner Front and Couch
streets. Then what? Apparently only
the river or rockpile. Nobody cares, of
course: but may not some one who
reads this, not out of pity but in some
small degree to his own advantage, re
spond? If elderly men can and will do
'ood, honest work for such wages as
they'can well earn, why not give them
a chance? A DOLLARLESS MAN.

CHARCOAL USED TO WRITE
Letter on Pieces of Dry-Rotted
White Fir Says He Slept Before
Open Fire First Night 10
Miles From Indian Creek.
BT CHARLES L. EDWARDS,
(Head of Nature Study Department,
CAMP KNOWLES. Klamath National
Forest, July 24, via Grants Pass, Or.,
July 26. (Special.) Joe Knowles' first
message from the wilderness was writ
ten with charcoal upon three flat
pieces of dry-routed white fir, in the
(1) "Slept before open fire first
night. Ten miles Indian Creek,
(2) "Country full of miners.
(3) "They are fishing or hunting
all the time. If I can avoid the pros
pectors and get a living
(4) "I will do well. I have seen
five prospectors and one has seen me."
(6) "This will be very hardest
week. It is hell. You will hear from
me Saturday. JOE."
Knowles' message was left during
Thursday near the trail one-third of a
mile down the valley from our cabin.
On Friday we found the secret sign
previously given us by Joe, and then,
after a little search, at the foot of a
large cedar, 20 yards off the trail, the
three pieces of wood.
It is obvious from the message
that Knowles is having a test severe
enough to satisfy anyone. In Maine
the forest is much more open, while
here, in the Siskiyous, there is a dense
growth of underbrush, which makes
extremely difficult going for those of
us who are well clothed. What then
must the hardship be for Joe until he
can manufacture some kind of
clothes? We In the forest are well
able to realize the severity of this
Although Knowles has had the ex
perience gained in the Maine experi
ment, the strange and different con
ditions here on the Pacific Coast make
this test even more remarkable. It
must be Judged upon its own merits
In this new environment and not
merely as a repetition of the Maine
TEST DECLARED TO BE FAIR
Philip Kinsley-Says None or Knowles'
Friends Can Reach Him.
CAMP KNOWLES. Klamath National
Forest, July 21. via urants Pass, July
26. (Special.) "As far as all in this
camp know, Joe Knowles Is making his
test against nature fairly and square
ly," says Philip Kinsley. "He was
brought to the edge of this particular
wild spot and told to go In and make
good. He had no chance, so far as
we know, to make any preparations In
advance. He certainly took nothing out
of camp with him and there is no place
of aid that we have been able to dis
cover save one or two prospectors' cab
ins within a radius of many miles.
"One of the prospectors, who has a
cabin within a few miles, is Roy Briggs.
who was one of the men who reported
seeing Knowles on the trail. By his
display of woodcraft and his great
manual dexterity and resourcefulness,
his knowledge of botany, his ability to
take care of himself in emergencies, his
demonstration of bark-weaving and
fire-making, Joe Knowles has shown to
the satisfaction of all in camp that he
is the one man In 10,000 to carry
through a stunt of this kind success
fully. "The woodsmen and prospectors who
have met and talked with him believe
in him. There is plenty to eat of cer
tain things in these hills. I was caught
out in the mountains for two days and
a night with practically nothing to eat
and managed to keep strength well up
by eating berries and the sweet moun
tain trout, with which all the streams
are filled. Knowles' manager is at
Grants Pass and has been there since
the day Knowles went Into the woods.
So he knows nothing of what Knowles
is doing. Lambert, the photographer
and woodsman, has been at all times
with the newspaper representatives, so
he lias not been able to help Knowles.
There Is no other source that seems
within human probability."
M'ADOO PROMISES HELP
TREASURY WILL PUT OUT SOI,000,

Portland Among Cities Reporting Gov
ernment Aid Is Not Required.
Seattle Asks for Funds.
WASHINGTON. July 26. Money from
the Federal treasury will be deposited
in National banks throughout the
country again this Fall to facilitate
the movement of crops and promote
business generally. Secretary McAdoo
announced tonight that he would put
out about $34,000,000. and that he stood
ready to Increase the amount to any
extent necessary to meet the country's
needs. Banks in the following cities
expressed the opinion that no Govern
ment deposits will be needed in their
localities during the crop - movement
season: Portland, Or.; San Francisco
and Los Angeles, Cat; Taooma, Wash.,
and Salt Lake City, Utah. If it should
develop later that they, or any of
them, require deposits, their applica
tions will receive consideration.
National banks in Seattle and Spo
kane, Wash., indicated their desire for
crop-moving deposits and Government
funds will be deposited with them. In
terest at the rate of 2 per cent per an
num will be charged and the Govern
ment will accept as security Govern
ment bonds at par. state, municipal,
railroad and other bonds, acceptable to
the Secretary, at 75 per cent of their par
value: approved commercial paper, ac
ceptable to the Secretary, at 75 per cent
of its face value. The Secretary will
not require, as he did last year, that 10
per cent of the deposits shall be se
cured by Government bonds.
All collateral offered as security must
be approved by a local committee ap
pointed by the clearing house in each
city and by a representative of the
Government chosen by the Secretary. In
sub-treasury cities the Assistant Treas
urer of the United States, in addition
to the Government's special representa
