COLORADO IS READY
TO TAKE CONTROL
Governor Advised to Assert
Statehood and Care for
CRITICAL PROBLEM FACED
Committee Reports to Executive on
What to Io When Federal Troops
Are Withdrawn From Duty
in Strike Zone.
DENVER. Nov. 22. Colorado Is pre
pared to assert its sovereignty In the
coal mining- districts, which have been
occupied, by Federal troops for nearly
seven months. This Is the opinion of
the legislative committee' appointed at
the extra session of the General As
sembly in May to act In an advisory
capacity to Governor Amnions ex
pressed in its report to the Governor
The report was submitted In re
sponse to a request from the Governor
for advice on "what should be done
upon the withdrawal of - Federal
Serious Problem Faced.
During; the 14 months since the coal
miners' strike was called, the com
mittee declares, "no Governor of any
state in this Union since the Civil
War has been confronted with as se
rioua problems . as those you have
faced." It recalls that at the time
President Wilson sent Federal troops
to the mining districts he made it
clear they should remain "only until
such time as the state could properly
reassert its authority," and continues:
"We believe that the state is now in
that position and we agree with you
that you cannot, in fairness to the
President, plead longer for Federal
aid, much as the same might be de
sired. You should therefore prepare to
accept for the people of this state the
responsibility of again being a state."
Obedience of Law Demanded.
After urging the Governor to ad
vise the people of the state at once
that the Federal troops are to be with
drawn in a short time, the report sug
gests that he Issue a proclamation com
manding every person in the state to
obey the law and refrain from all in
cendiary utterances. -
In suggesting the subject matter of
the proposed proclamation, the report
directs attention to, that section of the
state constitution which provides that
members of the state militia shall con
sist of "all able-bodied males between
the ages of 18 and 45 years, except
those exempted by state or Federal
Abie-Bodied Men Subject to Doty.
"Make it clear," the report says,
"that each able-bodied man between
the ages of 18 and 45 is. In fact, a
member of the militia, and that if it
becomes necessary he will be called
It is further suggested that the Gov.
ernor make It clear that the state
troops must be respected, if It again be
deemed necessary to use them; that the
order prohibiting the sale and impor
tation of liquor and sale or importa
tion of firearms be continued; that he
"firmly assume the responsibility
placed upon him."
The report is signed by S. J. Burrls.

NEGROES HEAR JOHN D., JR.
Sunday School Text Taken From
Words of Pickaninny.
HOT SPRINGS. Va.. Nov. 22. (Spe
cial.) John D. Rockefeller, Jr., made
his promised address before the col
ored Sunday school at Hot Springs to
day. Only negroes were present In
the audience. The speaker began by
asking the children why they came to
Sunday school. A pickaninny said the
children came to be good.
Mr. Rockefeller took his text from
the answer, saying there were two
kinds of goodness the resistance of
temptation and the performance of
duty. He told the colored people that
to be a good waiter or a good cook or
a good carpenter was to follow the
teachings of Christ.
The colored people had a stenogra
pher take down what Mr. Rockefeller
said and will make the address one of
the documents of the church. Mr.
Rockefeller shook hands with the col
ored people and put a bill of large
denomination in the collection plate.
When he bad finished, John Smith,
head waiter at the Homestead Hotel,
delivered an oration of thanks.

NEW STYLES LIKELY
Portland Women Think Paris
Due to Lose Influence. -
AMERICAN MODELS HOPE
War May Bring1 Fashion Centers to
United States and Develop Indi
vidual Modes All Speak in
Favor of Change.
Out of the clothes of bondage may
the American women come If the Euro
pean conflict continues long, according
to a number of Portland women.
The ancient and honorable custom of
getting models and patterns for wom
en's clothes from Paris has had a crimp
put in It, for with Paris shops closed
the American artists have an oppor
tunity to produce a distinct style.
The craae for new ideas has com
pelled the Parisians to look to that
part of Spain so little known. There
they unearthed the Basque costume, as
Impossible to understand as the lan
guage spoken by the Basques, which
linguists consider the most difficult in
Arnold Bennett said in "Your
United States" that American women
were the best dressed he had ever seen.
Many other noted authorities have
complimented American women as be
ing the best looking and American
women In every station pride them
selves on their independence and prac
ticability. American Designs Likely.
These characteristics of the new race
should assert themselves in dress if
the opportunity for establishing Amer
ican styles is grasped. The day when
a woman must hobble her stride or
risk her health from exposure must
surely pass, these women say.
The following statements gathered at
random from Portland women who
know how to dress show a decided ten
dency toward a change to "sensible,"
attractive wearing apparel.
Mrs. Elliott R. Corbett said: "I have
Just returned from New York, but am
not prepared to say what Ameiican
women will do. I think that the ex
travagance of their dress ls inexcusa
ble, but you know what the average
American will do when a new Parisian
model ls placed before her; she simply
loses her head. '
Styles Called Extreme.
"I think that the prevailing styles
are extreme and disgusting and the
useless extravagance observed every
where shows heartless Indifference to
the suffering now going on in Europe.
I do not know whether or not an
American model will supplant the pop
ular Parisian model."
"I doubt If there will be a new
American model," said Mrs. Max
Hirsch. "The Parisian designers are
now either In London or New York, to
remain until after the war. The
women of Portland who go to Port
land tailors are siiown models which
are brought from New York, and those
models originated in Paris."
Mrs. J. Wesley Ladd said: "I regret
that I can offer no Information on the
prospect of an American model taking
the place of the Parisian model.. I pay
no attention to style in dress beyond
that I think that the prevailing style
is ridiculously extreme."
Mrs. C. E. S. Wood sees hope In ig
noring the modern dress tendency,
while Mrs. E. C. Shevlin said: "It re
mains to be seen what will happen.
It is too soon to know, as the present
Winter models were originated before
the war started."
Women See Opportunity.
That now is the time to grasp the
opportunity and establish an American
mode is the opinion of Mrs. R. J. Marsh,
prominent club woman and student,
who says out of the many misfortunes
of war may come some indirect bene
fit In the way of women's styles.
"The New' York modistes have seen
the opportunity. It ls up to the Am
erican women the women who wear
the clothes to make the idea popular,"
said Mrs. Marsh. "The opportunity for
individualism in American fashion
never offered itself 80 well before, and
while there are a great many women
who do not follow the dictates of Paris,
it would be a distinct satisfaction to
know that out of the chaotic conditions
there would come an American mode.
"One thing is certain, we can hope
for no change immediately. The fash
ions for the Winter were set practlo
ally last Spring, But. if the war should
continue, it possibly will throw Ameri
can designers on their own resources,
and nothwithstanding Parisian and
London dress artiste are flocking to
New York, surely American sentiment
will be an Important factor.
Changes Are Not Expected.
"I would not want to appear to qual
ify as one wanting to particularize in
what American fashions should be, but
merely as an observer I am convinced
there ls opportunity for Improvement
in our clothes. American women al
ways have wanted a good, sensible
fashion. They have resented having
Parisian extremes foisted on them as
It were, but they have accepted them
tolerantly. It is always to be re
membered that fashions are designed,
i or me numan lorm, and not human
forms for fashions. The sentiment of
American women as a whole is for
saner,-more convenient modss. Never,
it see ma to me have we had an occa
son to make our sentiments felt as
now, and get some definite result."
Miss Louise Burns, who sees In the
prospective American mode a mere "ex
periment," doubts that a change will be
brought about at once. On the other
hand, she finds the "fad of styles" a
bore, and yesterday expressed an in
clination to believe that the curtail
ment of the Parisian ideas may be
beneficial to American women.
"It will at least give us an oppor
tunity to think for ourselves In the
matter of dress," said Miss Burns. "An
American mode would be a good thjng.

out West don't figure in things of that
kind. What can we do about it? I
hardly can take the proposal seriously."

That "They Won't Fight for
England or Themselves."
Local Irishmen yesterday expressed
confidence that the present war in
Europe would have a beneficial effect
for the Emerald Isle, regardless of the
outcome of the strife. The opinion
that England is sincere in her prom
ises to Ireland was practically unani
mous. "Things are rather confused In Ire
land just now," said J. Hennessy
Murphy. "This much, at least, ls cer
tain: Home rule is a part of the Brit

never- come off the books.
"I think this war will result in a
better understanding between the
north and south of Ireland, and be
tween the Irish and the English.
Prosperity Is Expected.
"After the war Is over I look for an
era of great prosperity for Ireland. ; I
believe there will be an expansion in

lines and especially in manufacturing

That no good can come of the war
is the opinion, .of Father E. V. O Hara,

"I think this war Is entirely regret

ever, that as far as home rule is con

JIDGE M'GIXX IRISH SPEAKEK
Tutted States of Europe Hopqd For
( as Possibility.
"I do not know what the outcome of
this war may be, but somehow It will
be for the benefit of Ireland. and
that there may be a United States of
Europe, modeled after the United States
of America, where there shall be lib
erty," said Judge McGinn in his ad
dress last night at the 16th annual
celebration of "Patriots' Day" at the
hall of the Ancient Order of Hiberians
on Russell street. .
Judge McGinn reviewed some of the
Important events In Irish history, es
pecially what is called Patriots' Day, of
47 years ago, when several Irishmen
gave their lives for Ireland. Judge
McGinn told of the great love the Irish
have for liberty and said that was one
of the reasons why they had come to
the United States, where thy found
what had been denied, them at home
liberty and freedom to worship God ac
cording to their own desires, and where
education had been free and open to
them. Judge McGinn said that the
names of Gladstone, the author of home
rule, John Bright, John Stuart Mill and
others should 'be held In the highest
"At the end of this terrible war,"
said the speaker, "the people over there
will be asking what it has been all
about. What have the French against
the Germans, the Germans against the
French, the Russians against the -Germans?
What Is it all about? It may
be a dream, but may God grant there
will be a United States of Europe over
there, and Ireland will be one of the
leading states. There is no hope of in
dependence, but somehow out of this
awful conflict I think some such condi
tion will come. The Irish people first
tasted liberty when they came to this
country, and should the United States
ever become involved, there will be no
Irishmen, but all will be Americans and
Irishmen will stand ready to shed the
last drop of their blood "for the coun

"In. fact, here are 21 kinds of help.
