Edwin Anders Charged by City
Superintendent With Annoy
ing School Girl.
Washington High School History
Head Accused of Three Violations
or Rules and He Issues
Sweeping Denial of All.
Craver charges than those already
Intimated against Edwin Anders, head
of the history department at Washing
ton High School, were filed with the
School Board Saturday by L R. Alder
man, superintendent of the. city school
system, and Chairman M. Q. Munly. of
the Board of Education, has called a
special meeting of the Directors to con
sider them tomorrow afternoon at 4
That he annoyed a girl at Washing
ton High and made improper sugges
tions to her Is alleged in the formal
letter to the Board of Education in
which the superintendent asks for the
history instructor's dismissal. Other
charges are that Mr. Anders circulated
an anonymous letter of a scurrilous na
ture and that he was guilty of insub
ordination and failed to co-operate with
teachers and officials of the school
Mr. Aadera Denies Charge.
Mr. Anders received a copy of the
charges from R. H. Thomas, clerk of
the School Board, late yesterday. He
discussed them freely and said they
were all false. There are three dis
tinct counts in the Indictment as drawn
by Superintendent Alderman.
The first charge is that Mr. Anders
circulated a letter sharply attacking
Mr. Alderman and other officials and
principals of the schools. This refers
to the letter that appeared early last
week which was sent to members of
the Parent-Teacher Association and to
prominent citizens of the city.
The second allegation is Insubordin
ation and failure to co-operate with
other teachers. Insubordination Is
charged in the writing of a personal
letter to the superintendent in which
criticism is said to have been made of
Mr. Alderman's methods.
The third count is the statement that
Mr. Anders Insulted a girl at Washing
ton High School and molested her wltb
unworthy suggestions and intentions
to such an extent that she has great
fear of him.
Statements Are Contradictory.
Mr. Anders says he called the girl
referred to by Superintendent Alder
man in his charges on the telephone
yesterday and she denied there is any
truth in the statements made. The
school officials say the girl, whose
name is withheld out of consideration
for her. could have made no such state
ment, for she has said she will tell the
truth and will testify at the hearing
against Mr. Anders.
"All three charges are unfounded."
said Mr. Anders last night. "They are
absolutely untrue and 1 deny them.
"The third charge, that I Insulted a
girl at Washington High School, has
been made up on the spur of the mo
ment to attack my personal character,
ior he knows the other two cannot be
"The overwhelming evidence in the
case leads me to believe he Is the man
guilty of all three charges." said Su
perintendent Alderman. "I am not try
ing to persecute him in the least and
would be glad to find him innocent, but
do not believe it possible for him to
be cleared in this case.
Hcarlan; May Be Delayed.
"I have been influenced solely by the
desire for the good of the service. Such
reports as he has sent out would dis
organize any service."
Mr. Anders says he may Insist upon
his right to have three days to prepare
his answer to the charges. He says
such a right is given in the session
laws of 1913. He will, however, answer
the summons to appear before the
School Board tomorrow afternoon,
eince he says ha has not been dis-
misatru, uuk iucicij Buorauoi o.uu la
bound to obey any order of the school
authorities. He may likely ask
for three days' time at the Directors'
meeting. He has secured Arthur I.
Moulton as legal counsel to represent
Resolutions Adopted by Abont 500 Per
sona at Mass Meeting. Charging;
Inefficient Administration.
Following the action taken by the
City Comntuision some time ago In re
fusing to make an appropriation for
the opening or Columbia Slough to
make it available for a sewer outlet
from the Peninsula district, resolutions
were adopted by about 500 persons at a
mass meeting at the North Branch Li
brary Saturday night. In which the city
administration was declared Inefficient
and inadequate. It was voted that a
committee of five be appointed to In
vestigate and report ways and means
of securing a more competent and effi
cient administration ot municipal af
fairs. W. M. Killingsworth was made
chairman of this committee and W. T.
Vaughn, chairman of the meeting, was
chosen as a member. The other mem
bers are to be appointed later. v
The report of a special committee was
read and adopted In which the reports
of P. H. Pater, city engineer, and the
fewer engineer, submitted to the Com
mission in connection with the plan
of opening Columbia Slough, were de
clared apparently to have had for their
purpose the defeat of the project. The
report took up various sections of the
two engineers' reports, in which it was
declared misstatements were made.
"The Council, we conclude, did
not seek information easily obtainable
and has not used fair judgment in
dealing with the question," says the
W. T. Vaughn declared the people
of the Peninsula had just begun. He
said that Commissioner Dreck wished
to put in another trunk sewer at an
approximate expense to the Peninsula

Senator Clapp, of Minnesota, Latest to
Give Warnlns; Senator Cummins
Avers "Saloons Must Go."
WASHINGTON, March 20. National
eaders of both the dominant political
parties can see little or no chance of
escape from fights to the finish over
the liquor question on the floors of
both Presidential nominating conven
tions in 1916. Powerful factors in the
inner party councils on both sides are
serving notice that the issue must be
faced. Not from temperance agitators
are these warnings coming, but rather
from leading members of the United
States Senate and House of Repre
sentatives, and, what is perhaps more
significant, from members of the
party National committees.
Lnite States Senator Moses E. Clapp,
of Minnesota, recently added his name
to the list of present members ot the
Senate who insist that a clear-cut
statement on the liquor question by the
two dominant parties cannot be avoid
ed. In an open letter Senator Clapp
"If business is good in 1916, prohibi
tion will be -a most important factor
in the 1916 campaign. The question
has become an' economic issue and the
saloon has become generally -recognized
as a menace both by employers
and workers."
Senator Clapp follows the lead of
United States Senator A. B. Cummins,
of Iowa, and makes the fifteenth mem
ber of the Senate recently to serve
such warning on party associates.
Senator Cummins, himself regarded
as a potential progressive Republican
Presidential candidate, takes an un
equivocal personal position and says:
"The saloon must go. soDriety must
be the rule of conduct for the future."
Senator William S. Kenyon shares
the Cummins' view, so that both the
Iowa members of the Senate are out
for action. Senator William E. Borah,
of Idaho, is another Republican Presi
dential possibility who sees little
chance for his party escaping the is
Senators Thomson, of Kansan, and
SheDDard. of Texas, are two Demo
crats who take a conspicuously lead
ing place in the agitation for prohibi
tion. The advance of prohibitory leg
islation in the South has influenced the
solid Congressional delegations in both
Senate and House from five Southern
States, with the exception of one or
two individuals, to the point where
they have informed party colleagues
they will have to support, wnenever
It is forced to a vote, any and all
measures aimed at the suppression of
the liquor traffic.
In the minds of the party leaders.
the troublesome thing Is not that so
many individual United States Sena
tors publicly are standing for prohibi
tion, but that these members of Con
gress are reflecting the opinions and
desires of their constitutents.
Many of the best-known members of
Congress are discussing the liquor
question In a manner which, indulged

Slgfred Larson Injured When He
Gives Way and Then Advances.
Sigfred Larson. 376 Williams avenue,
riding a motorcycle, collided with a big
yellow automobile at Third and Salmon
streets Saturday, and Mr. Larson is now
at St. Vincent's Hospital with a frac
tured leg.
Mr. Larson was riding south on Third
street when the automobile appeared
on Salmon street. Each driver slowed
down for the other to pass and then,
each thinking the other had offered the
right of way, simultaneously attempted
to make use of It with the least pos
sible delay, and started on.
Tile' crash left Mr. Larson with both
bones broken between the ankle and
the knee of the right leg.
The driver of the automobile took
Mr. Larson to a bath house at Fourth

moved to the hospital.

Flagship of Atlantic Reserve Fleet
Ordered to Hampton. Roads on
"Xeutrality Tnty"Crew and
Stores Being Assembled.
NEWPORT NEWS, Vsw March 28.
The German converted ernlser Prlns
KItel Frledrich -was still at h,er berth
at midnight tonight.
Invitations to a dinner aboard the
Eltel which had been issued for tomor
row were recalled tonight without ex
planation WASHINGTON. March 28 The bat-
tleshlD Alabama, of the reserve fleet.
was ordered to Hampton Roads tonigni
on "neutrality duty," according to an
announcement from the Navy Depart
ment. The battleship is at the Phila
delphia yard.
Secretary Daniels said it was in
tended to place one large vessel on
guard to support the submarines and
destroyers which have been on duty
since the German commerce destrbyer
Prinz Eitel Friedrich reached Newport
Heavy Ships Required for Duty.
Heavy ships have been employed
In neutrality duty at Boston and New
York, the Secretary said, and it was
thought best to take similar precau
tions at Hampton Roads, as the smaller
vessels would be handicapped In the
event of heavy weather.
The Alabama is the flagship of Rear-
Admiral James M. fieim. corrmander-in-chief
of the Atlantic reserve fleet.
Secretary Daniels .said Admiral Helm
would decide for himseir wneuier or
not to accompany his ship.
Departure Will Be Delayed.
Navy officials said the Alabama prob
ably would not be able to get away
until some time sunaay as it
be necessary not only to round up
the members of her crew who were
absent on shore liberty, but also to
take stores. If the ship needs coal, it
was said, she might not be able to leave
for Hampton roads "before Monday
The fact that orders were seni iu
the Alabama's commander at a late
hour tonight, however, indicated that
there was some urgency in the matter
not explained by Secretary Daniels.
There were unconfirmed reports here
tonight that Captain Thieriohens of the
Prinz Eltel had maaa. inquiry -oi me
Washington Government as to wnai
protection he might expect within the
three-mile limit should he decide to
attempt to run the gauntlet of enemy
warships said to be awaiting him.
Officials Maintain Silence.
Can tain Thlerlchens is said to have
taken the position that his vessel was
entitled to protection from any moles
tation while within the territorial wat
ers of the United States, and in this
view it is understood Government offi
cials concur.
No officials who could be reached to
night, however, would discus3 the sub
ject, and the only official explanation
of the Alabama's errand that could be
obtained was that given by secretary
There was a little doubt that a time
limit for the making of repairs to the
Eltel had been set by the Government
and that the limit is- close to expira
tion. When the period granted expires.
Commander Thierlchens, of the Eltel,
will be formally notified that he must
either out to sea within 24 hours or
his ship and crew will be Interned for
the war. '
The German captain could appeal tor
time to make further repairs, but this
would be granted, it is thought, only
on a new and unexpected showing as
to the unseaworthiness or tils vessel.
Frye Captain's Words Recalled.
It appeared to be the general opinion
that Commander Thierlchens would not
ask that his ship be interned, but would
wait out his time limit and compel tne
Government to act. Officials recalled
the statement of Captain Kiehne, of the
American ship William P. Frye. sunk
by the Eitel, who declared when he
reached shore from the cruiser that she
would not put to sea again during the
war. He refused to say on what he
based his prediction, but officials be
lieved his lone association with the
Eitel's officers after tho Frye was sunk
qualified him to speak with some au
thority. It was suggested to officials today
that the -presence of numerous British
horse transports at Newport News
might serve to delay the departure of
the Eitel, should her commander deter
mine to attempt to dash to sea past the
patrol of warships said to be maintained
by the allies on tne naroor ana Deyonu
the three-mile limit. Under neutrality
laws, no belligerent warships, such as
the Eltel, may leave port within zt
hours after the departure of an enemy
merchant craft.
Wllbelm to Be Sought Next.
By sailing in and out of the har
bor at frequent intervals, the Brit
ish merchant skippers could delay
the Eitel's dash, if they so desired. It
was thought, however, that no such
maneuver would be attempted, as the
conviction was general that the Eitel
would not put to sea and the allies were
nqt desirous of delaying the time of her
With the ships' .release from the vigil
off the Virginia Capes, it is reported

nothing has been heard for many weeks.
Navy and Treasury Confer.
Secretary Daniels and Acting Secre
tary Breckenridge, of the War Depart
ment, conferred today regarding; tne
measures to carry out neutrality laws
in the case of the Eitel as laid down
by the State Department. The Navy
Department has advised with the offi
cials of the Treasury Department,
which, under law. Is responsible for the
internment of the Eltel. if it should
come to that, for her departure from
Newport News after notice.
Mr. Breckenridge said no orders had
been given to the post commanders,
and asserted that even in case of a
naval battle within the three-mile limit.
should the Eitel make the dash, there
would be no firing from the fort with
out express orders from Washington.
Prince Hatzfeidt, counselor or tne
German embassy, visited the State De
partment today to ask if all those

The embassy understood, the Coun
selor told Counselor Lansing, that some

Philadelphia Police Help Assemble
Crews at Navy-yard.
PHILADELPHIA. March 18. The au
thorities of the Philadelphia Navy
Yard tonight notified the superintend
ent of the Philadelphia police to notify
all enlisted men, wherever found, to re
port at the Navy-Yard at S o'clock; Sun
day. The request to the police was
signed by Commander Hinds, of the
battleship Ohio, which is the receiving
ship at the Navy-Yard.
The request of the Navy-Yard was
made an order by the police and was
read to all patrolmen who went on
duty at midnight.
Sailors and marines who were found
on the streets were much surprised
when told of the order by the police
men, but they obeyed instantly, with
the result that every car bound for the
Navy-Yard carried enlisted men as pas
sengers. The Alabama is at present attached
to the reserve fleet and had only a
skeleton crew, hence the order to
gather in all men on shore leave in a
hurry, so that the battleship may sail
with a regulation complement of offi
cers and men.
There was much activity at the yard
tonight in getting the Alabama ready
for sea. She is expected to sail some

Race Thought to Be Narrowed Down
to Em I. Cantlne and Herbert'
Nunn, Both of Portland.
A successor to Major Bowlby. State
Highway Engineer, probably will be
named by the Highway Commission at
Salem today.
Although there are many applicants
in the field, it is understood that the
race has narrowed down toE. L Can
tine and Herbert Nunn, both of Port
land, with Mr. Cantine said to have a
strong lead. It would not be surpris
ing for him to receive the appoint
ment. It is reasonably certain that the ap
pointee of the Commission will con
tinue in office after the new law con
solidating the highway department
with the State Engineering Depart
ment goes into effect. Under t,his law
the appointing power is in the hands
of the Governor alone, while at present
the entire Commission, consisting of
the Governor, Treasurer and Secretary
of State, make the appointment.

Engineers have protested to the Com
mission against appointment of any
person for Highway Commissioner who

Two-Year-Old Baby Toddles to Chair
and Verdict for Mother Results.
EBENBBURG, PaT March 20. A 2-year-old
boy, who climbed into the
witness chair and gave bis mother's
attorney the .opportunity to call the
Jury's attention to the facial resem
blance between the child and the
father, who denied its parentage, won
a suit for the mother.
Charles F. Schnabel, a Johnstown
merchant, sued his wife for divorce, al
leging desertion and chose a jury trial
instead of the usual master. He de
clared the 2-year-old son of the pretty
defendant was not his own child. The
wife showed Schnabel had sent her to
her mother's home shortly after their
marriage and refused to support her.
While Tillman K. Saylor. attorney
for the defense, was arguing the case,
the baby toddled to the witness chair
and climbed into it. Saylor untied the
child's hood and ordered Schnabel to
turn his face toward the Jury.
The resemblance was so close that
the Jury accepted the woman's version
and In 12 minutes returned a verdict,
refusing Schnabel a divorce.' . ,
