Mutiny Pleasant Surprise.
The largest military turnout in Port
. land since the Spanish-American war
was the inspection of Multnomah
County troops by Governor Withycombe
in the Armory Wednesday night. Nine
full companies of infantry, artillery and
cavalry, besides the sanitary detach
ments, passed in review before the
Governor, Adjutant-General George A.
White, and other military and state of
ficers who were present for the inspec
tion. The spacious Armory floor was so
crowded with troops that it waa neces
sary for officers to march their men
out to the street and around the block
to permit them to turn around so they
could actually pass in review.
In spite of the congestion due to an
unprecedented military gathering, the
militia executed maneuvers with a pre
cision that brought frequent comment
from Governor Withycombe and bursts
of applause from the 100 or more per
sons in the gallery. No difficult drills
could be attempted on the crowded
floor, but the maneuvers that were ex
ecuted were not marred by a single

Six out of eisht organized companies
of the Third Infantry were present in
full force. These were Companies B,

airy and Battery A, Field Artillery,
made up the third, or provisional bat'
talion. which was reviewed by Governo
W ithycombe and his staff.
The troops were under the command
of Colonel John L. May. of the Third
infantry, assisted by Captain Hotch

Following the review the entire reg

following the inspection, a big

the Armory ballroom for a dance. Of
ficers and visitors were entertained in
the, officers quarters, where refresh

Captain Clarence R. Hotchklss, Colo
my May's chief of staff, was some
what taken aback early in the evening
wnen ne ordered the Third infantry
band to assemble. The ment sent word
to their superior officer that they
wouia not move from tneir quarters.
The captain was puzzled. The band
had always been his pet organization,
and he had devoted much personal su
pervision to its worn, ills mind re
verted to the militia "revolt" during
the maneuvers in Washington two
years ago, and he wondered if some
thing of the sort had not occurred
Caplalai Gets aiemento.
, Somewhat incensed. the captain
mounted the stairs to tbe bands quar
lers, wnere ne found the men lined up
waiting lor him. JJ'here his vexation
was turned into an agreeable surprise.
He was informed that this waa the
third anniversary of his promotion to
the office of Adjutant on the Colonel's
staff, and that the. band had remem
bered the occasion. He waa presented
with a handsomely engraved auto
matic revolver as a memento of the oc
casion. One event of the review which moved
the huge audience to a roar of ap
plause was the presentation of the Na
tional Defense Trophy to Company B,
of the Third Infantry. This trophy,
awarded by the National Board for the
Promotion of Rifle Practice, has been
held by Company B for three succes

militia company in the state.

that the license blank would ,, hold,
Fitzsimmons waa referred to Chief
Clerk Scully, whe told him he would
have to show his divorce papers be

That news brought consternation to
the fare of the ex-pugilist, and it is
believed that he felt some peculiar
anxiety over the matter, because it
is reported that the ex-pugilist, who

While Fitzsimmons was hurrying to
Manhattan for the papers that would
satisfy Chief Clerk Scully, the bride-to-be
sat in the license bureau room read
ing a newspaper. As the afternoon
wore away, she became anxious, ami
watched the door constantly. Fitz
simmons apparently expected some dif
ficulty m getting the papers at once.
Before he started for .Manhattan, he
telephoned and, judging from the an
noyed expression on his face, the in
formation he had obtained was not
wholly satisfactory. One of Fitzsim
mons' divorces was obtained in Chi
cago and the other in New York.

returned to the now impatient Temo

Members of the First Methodist
Church Wednesday continued with un
abated success their "every member
campaign' and succeeded in arousing
the support and enthusiasm of scores
of additional workers in various parts
of the city.
Each of the five divisions in charge
of the work hustled all day In the quest
for members. At the final rally last
night the reports Indicated, that the
work has been productive of unex
pected results. The campaign will be
pushed for several days more. At the
end of this period it is hoped that every
registered member of the church will
have been enrolled in the campaign of
active service. Many new members also
will have been obtained.
Dr. F. L. Loveland, pastor of the
church, Is the active head of the move
ment, and has given much personal at
tention to the actual detail of solicita
tion among the members. His efforts
alone have been productive of splendid
The five divisions Into which the
field forces have been organized are
commanded by E. A. Baker. E. S. Miller,
B. A. Green, I B. Baketel and George
R. Parks respectively. Each commander
has the rank of colonel. Each division
is subdivided into four teams. There Is
much good natured rivalry among the
various divisions and among the several
teams of each division.
The city has been divided Into dis
tricts and each team is in charge of a
district. The registered members of the
church in each district first are visited
and their active aid In church effort is
enlisted. The workers then visit those
persons who are not affiliated with any
church and enlist some of them In gen
eral church work.
Each night the teams make their re
ports to' the congregation. There was
much rejoicing last night when the re
turns showed that the campaign has re
sulted in the renewed interest of large
numbers of members who heretofore
have taken only a passive Interest In
Dr. Loveland follows the campaign
reports each night with a sermon. His

advancing the spirit of goodfellowship

SAN FRANCISCO. April 1. (Spe
cial.) Harry Edsell. assistant com
missioner of immigration, who has been
Btatloned at Angel Island for the past
five years, resigned his post Wednes
day after 13 years In the employ of the
Federal Government. Orders from the
Immigration Bureau, in Washington, in
which Edsell waa transferred from the
Angel Island post to St. Louis, caused
the commissioner to resign after he
had learned by telegraph that the
transfer order was Irrevocable.
Leaving the editorial staff of the
Portland Telegram in 1903, Mr. Edsell
entered the Government service at
Port Townsend in the Department of
Commerce and Labor. A year later he
was promoted to inspector in charge
of the immigration station at Sumas,
Wash. In 1909 he was made Chinese
Inspector in charge of the entire Cana
dian border. He was transferred from
Vancouver, B. C. to Washington, D. C,
where he became genera Investigator
for the Immigration Bureau and his
duties in the investigation department
brought him to Angel iBland in 1910.
Early In 1911 he was made assistant
commissioner of immigration.
With the telegram from Washington
accepting Mr. Edsell's resignation came
another order promoting W. T. Bryce
to the assistant commisslonership. Mr.
Bryce has spent 16 years In the local

To Men and Women:
As manager of the Peoples Clothing: Co., I want to
fit the men folks out with their Easter Suit. You
will save money by purchasing it from us, because we
are now connected with the great SHIRLEY
CHAIN of stores and are now selling clothing direct
from FACTORY TO WEARER.
Lord Chesterfield said to his son: "JUDGE ALL
THINGS BY THEIR MERITS AND NOT BY
THEIR AGES." This injunction holds as true today
as it did nearly two centuries ago. That's why within
