After Which Employment
Is Believed Possible.
NEW YORK, March SO. John D.
Rockefeller. Jr.. in a telegram to the
Colorado state committee on unemploy
ment and relief, announced that the
Jiockefellcr Foundation stood ready to
contribute $100,000 to relieve distress
among the workers in Colorado, partic
ularly in the mining- districts.
The committee sent a telegram to Mr.
Hockefeller on March 35. saying there
was considerable distress in Colorado
and that although contributions ' had
been received or pledged from various
sources the indications were that the
funds so gathered would be insufficient
to meet the needs.
In hig telegram today Mr. Rockefeller
informed the committee that the KocKe
filler Foundation stood ready to meet
any deficit up to S100.000.
Reply Jlade by Telegraph. .
X. J. Mackenzie King, formerly Com
missioner of Labor of Canada, but now
connected with the Rockefeller Founda
tion, is now in Denver. In his message,
. Mr. Rockefeller said that Mr. King
would represent the Foundation.
Mr. Rockefeller's telegram, which
was addressed to "the state committee
of unemployment and relief. F. J. Rad
ford, chairman, Trinidad. Colo.." read
'Your telreram of March 26, with
reference to the distress which exists
among the unemployed and their famt
lies in Colorado is received. I note
the expression of opinion by your com
mittee. that if the necessaries of life
can be provided during the next three
months, at the end of that time It
should be possible for employment to
be secured on farms, in the mines or
Financial Aid Pledged.
"It is also noted that your committee
fears that in the meantime funds from
individuals, county and state resources
will prove insuf f icient- to meet the need
and that unless further immediate aid
is otherwise provided widespread suf
fering and want will certainly ensue.
"Should this prove to be true, the
Foundation stands ready, up to July 1
next, to supplement the funds received
from the above mentioned sources as
may be necessary up to J100.0OO. Since
Mr. V. U MacKenzie King, director
of the industrial relation department of
the Rockefeller Foundation, is now in
Denver, the Foundation is requesting
him to represent it in this matter in
conference with you."

President Portland Chamber of Commerce,
Upon advices being received by The
Oregonian last night that Secretary
Daniels had included Portland in the
list of Pacific Coast ports to be visited
by the Atlantic fleet units, both Mr.
Colt and Mr. Clark expressed gratifica
tion. Mr. Colt said:
. "Since the telegrams have been sent,
we may as well say that the Chamber
stands for the recognition of Oregon,
and expects to take a stand in things
of sentiment as well as in business and
commerce. We feel we are justified in
seeing Portland and Oregon recognized.
So far as the Chamber is concerned, our
attitude has not changed in all vital
matters of this kind."
Mr. Clark said:
"We are pleased to know that the
Washington authorities consider Port
land is on the map, and the news will
be welcome to our people. The battle

Secretary Denials Says Division Will
Be Sent to This Port.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, March 3D. After the battleship
fleet led by the old Oregon, passes
through the Panama Canal and visits
the San Francisco exposition, it is to
be divided, some of the ships going to
Portland, some to Puget Sound and
others to Hawaii. Secretary of the
Navy Daniels says the Navy Depart
ment has not worked out the itinerary
for the fleet, and will not be ready
to announce it until shortly before the
warships start through the Panama
It is now planned to assemble the
Atlantic battleship fleet and other
vessels and send them south in time
to reach Panama July 4.
The battleship Oregon will go south
in the latter part of June, and will
pass through the canal In time to meet
the assembled armada and lead it back
through the canal to the San Francisco
Exposition. If President Wilson is
able to leave Washington at the time,
he expects to make the trip through
the canal aboard the Oregon, and will
be accompanied by Secretary Daniels
and other high officials.
How long the battleship fleet will
remain at ' San Francisco, Secretary
Daniels says he has not determined,
and none the details of the cruise have
been arranged, other than to fix July 4
as the tentative date on which the fleet
shall assemble at Panama. Just how
many ships, and what ships, will be
sent to Portland, and other ports along
the Pacific Coast, will not be de
termined for some time, as the Navy
Department is now preparing for
maneuvers on the Atlantic Coast, and
wishes to conclude them before taking
!up plans for the cruise to -the Pacific.
Secretary Daniels said the Oregon,
ultimately, will be returned to the
reserve fleet station at Puget Sound.
Asked if he had considered sending
the Oregon to Portland and turning it
over to the Naval Militia of Oregon.
Secretary Daniels said he'would gladly
order this done, but that the expense
of. maintaining a ship of that size is
so great the people of Oregon would
not care to assume the burden. Vessels
of such dimensions, he said, are not
suited for the use of the naval militia,
because of the heavy cost of maintenance.
GOVERNOR SENDS HIS PROTEST
Oregon Delegation Also Asked to
See That Fleet Conies Here.
SALEM, Or., March 30. (Special.)
Governor Withycombe was advised to
day by Portland business men that In
formation has been received that the
battleship fleet which wilt come to the
Pacific via the Panama Canal in July
does not plan to stop at Portland. It
is now proposed to proceed direct from
San Francisco to Puget Sound. The
Governor immediately sent the follow
Ing message to Senators Chamberlain
and Lane, and to Josephus .Daniels,
Secretary of the Isavy:
Am Informed battleship fleet on visit to
Pacific in July contemplates stops at Cali
fornia norts and Pucet Sound. In reported
Itinerary, apparently stop at Portland is

justly Ignore it. Celilo Car.al opening makes
recognition of Columbia gateway to interior
especially desirable. Please use your oesi

Governor of Oregon.
"I am sure there must be some mis
take," said the Governor in comment
ing on the matter. "It is inconceiv
able that the Naval authorities should
venture such an oversight The Gov
ernment spends millions at the mouth
of the Columbia in making its entrance
all that can be desired, and more mil
lions opening the waterway to through

then when the first important fleet
excursion comes this way, it is pro

"However. I am sure our Senators
will see that the plan is changed so

J. c. Donvllle, of Portland, Is Said to
Have Given Worthless Paper
to Many Merchants.
SALEM. Or.. March 30. (Special.)
Using a Young Men's Christian -Association
membership card, which, it Is
declared, he obtained fraudulently, as
a testimonial of character, a man giv
ing his name as J. C. Douville, of Port
land, passed worthless checks with
Salem merchants today, aggregating
till, according to the police. After a
search of several hours, the police, un
der the direction of Chief Welsh, caught
him in the outskirts of the city. They
think he is an old offender.
The man was accompanied to the city
last night by a woman and registered
at a hotel. He went to the Salem
Young Men's Christian Association
early today and gave a check for tlO
for a membership card. With this he
went to several stores and made pur
chases, giving checks on the North
western Bank of Portland.
After making orher purchases, he
went to the store of Hammond &
Bishop and bought a suit of clothing.
The- merchant, however, was suspi
cious of his customer and called the
cashier of the Portland bank, on whicn
he had given a check for $27.50, over
the telephone. He was told that Dou
ville had no account at the bank.
The police finally locaied the man
at a little store in the soutnern part
of the city, where he was waiting for
a package of goods to be delivered to
hinr. All the merchandise obtained by
him was reepvered. The woman, who
was registered at the hotel as Mrs.
Douville. is thougtit to nave left the
city early today.
Betterments Said to Have Been Made
From Operating Expenses Fa

' Money Also Asserted.
CHICAGO, March 30. Testimony
that the Western railroads, instead of
becoming impoverished, have in the
last five years earned -more revenue
than ever before in their history was
offered at the Interstate Commerce
Commission hearing today of the 41
Western railroads' petition for higher
rates on certain commodities..
Appearing in opposition to the rail
roads' plan that they be permitted to
charge rates that will yield them at
least $10,000,000 a year more revenue,
Wayne Ellis, statistician of the Iowa
Railroad Commission, asserted that the
railroads, judged by statistics which he
compiled, were prosperous.
"Their net revenues for the last five
years have been greater than ever be
fore," said Mr. Ellis. "Compared with
1900 the last five-year period showed
a net increase of 75 per cent. Less
taxes, the total net shows a correspond
ing increase. The railroads assert that
operating expenses have increased at a
greater rate than net revenue, but this
is true only of the last five years.
The cause of this is that the rail
roads have charged to operating ex
penses large amounts connected with
additions and betterments.' The West
ern railroads are being built up and
improved from operating expenses.
"It is also significant that the total
maintenance expense per mile of line
in the western district were greater In
both 1013 and 1914 than 1910. and in
1914 the gross revenues were reduced
by 4 per cent, as compared with 1913,
but the maintenance charges were re
duced onl-r one-sixth of 1 per cent and
the maintenance of equipment was
The witness asserted that the rail
roads were now paying more dividends
than ever before and that the rate at
which they were able to borrow money
compared favorably with the rate
inriimrrinla had to Pay. He Will
be cross-examined tomorrow.
Henry C. Wallace, J-es jHoines, r. uu
appeared as an agricultural expert, and
who testified that the railroads were
attempting to impose a burden on the
farmers, was asked whether in Iowa
railroad securities were considered a
better investment than farms.
"I don't know, but if I owned an
Iowa farm I would sell it and buy rail
road securities," he said.
"You seem to think there is a bad
outlook for Iowa farmers?" asked C.
C. Wright, general counsel for the rail
"You can -put your own interpreta

Weather conditions for a bombard

been a quiet sea and a clear atmosphere

that the resumption of the bombard

of the other vessels engaged were badly
used by the Dardanelles batteries.
Turkish "officers say that the allies are
not likely to resume their operations
