WILSON INSISTS OH
VISIT MID SEARCH
Intensity of American Feeling
Is Impressed on Visiting
, German Ambassador.
NOTE NOT TO BE DELAYED
Con Terence Regarded as Iikely to
Jjead to Important Results in
Respect to General Situa
j' tion In. Europe.
WASHINGTON', Juno 2. President
"Wilson, in his talk with Count von
Bernstorff. the German Ambassador, at
the White House today, emphasized
the intense feeling of the American
people over the sinking' of the LusI
tania and other violations of Ameri
can rights, and impressed on him that
the United States must insist on an
adherence by Germany to the accepted
principles of international law as they
No announcements were made after
the conference, but it was said authori
tatively that there would be no change
tn the plan off the President and his
Cabinet to send in response to the
German reply to the last American note
an inquiry to ascertain definitely
whether the imperial government will
abide by international law or follow its
own rules of maritime warfare. The
note will be dispatched before the end
of the week.
Von Bernstorff la Hopeful.
The Ambassador felt hopeful when
he returned to his embassy. He be
lieved the report which he prepared
for transmission to Berlin would en
lighten the German Koreign Office on
the true state of the American Govern
ment's opinion and pave the way to a
In official and diplomatic quarters
opinion was dividei as to the effect
of the conference. Some thought it
would be beneficial and bring from
Germany a conciliatory Teply to the
next American communication. Others
pointed out that the German Ambas
sador similarly was hopeful when
President Wilson's note of May 13 was
dispatched and that he recommended
several methods to the German Foreign
Office of meeting the American posi
tion satisfactorily. It is an open secret
In diplomatic quarters, however, that
the Ambassador's suggestions were
not followed then and speculation was
widespread as to what influence hia
communication of today expressing,
as it did, the viewpoint of the Presi
dent himself might have on his gov
ernment. Visit and Search Instated On.
The conference at the White House
was the outstanding development of the
day in the international situation.
The President is understood to have
explained the American Government's
position and to have reiterated that it
was based on legality. It is believed
the Ambassador was told that if the
German government could conduct its
submarine warfare in accordance with
the dictates of humanity, in a way that
would not endanger the lives and
property of neutrals, there would be no
objection to the use of the under-water
craft as a commerce destroyer. The ex
ercise of the right of visit and search,
however, the President is said to have
explained, would be insisted on when
submarines encounter unarmed mer
chantmen or vessels which do not re
In some well-informed quarters the
conference was discussed as likely to
lead to important results with respect
to the general European situation.
While the President, it is believed, in
adherence to his expressed policy,
would not talk of the relations of this
country with Great Britain to the Ger
man Ambassador, the possibility that a
return to international law by all the
belligerents might eventually be ac
complished by the efforts of the United
States and thus pave the way for the
eventual restoration of peace in Europe
was a suggestion widely current.
Errer May Be Acknowledged.
In German quarters tonight optimism
was apparent. The view was expressed
that the German reply did not purport
to be a full answer to the . American
demands, and that if the United States
in its next note stated that official in
vestigation showed that the Lusitania
carried no guns, it would not be sur
prising if this would be accepted by
the German government as a fact, fur
nishing the basis for the giving of rep
aration. The four affidavits presented to the
State Department by the German Em
bassy alleging that guns were carried
by the Lusitania is believed to be the
evidence to which the German govern
ment referred in its last note. Should
it develop that the Foreign Office has
been misinformed. German diplomatists
itaid an acknowledgment of the mistake
would not be withheld.
These affidavits were not made pub
lic by either the embassy or the State
Department, but the character of the
individuals who made them and their
testimony is being made the subject of
a quiet investigation. Those officials
who had seen the statements were con
fident that they could not be accepted
as disproving the testimony given by
inspectors whose duty it was to search
DEFENDER GIVES REPORT
TREATMENT OF MES HELD FOR
Permission for Prisoners Awaiting
Trial to Smoke la Urged Legal.
Advice Aids Many.
Calling to attention the treatment
of men held for "investigation" at
the City Jail, and asking that prison
ers awaiting trial be not denied the
use of tobacco, David Robinson, newly
appointed Public Defender at the Mu
nicipal Court, yesterday submitted his
first monthly report to Mayor Albee.
The efficient routine of his work is
shown by the report of the cases
handled during the month.
A feature which should be remedied,
according to the report of Public De
fender Robinson, is the present meth
od of handling men picked up on sus
picion said of "fugitives." Men held
for investigation are refused the use
of the telephone, are not permitted to
communicate with their friends or
counsel, says the report, ami are held
two and three days without any com
plaint being filed against them, con
trary to law. Men held as fugitives,
it is pointed out, are kept In Jail for
long periods, in. one recent instance, a
man wanted in New York, for 17 days,
without formal complaint being filed.
Allowing prisoners awaiting trial to
smoke is advised because the men are
confined "in large calls with steel
walls and cement floors and nothing
combustible therein except possibly
Mr. Robinson reported that, in addi
tion to criminal .work, he had under
taken to assist all who are unable to
pay for private legal advice and bad
been instrumental in straightening out
many domestic difficulties.
During the month of May he repre
sented 242 individuals charged with
crimes ranging from drunkenness to
robbery. Of this number, 86 were dis
charged, 118 were continued for sen
tence and only 29 were punished by
either fine or imprisonment.
"With the realization that I am not
here to open the Jail doors wide and
to liberate all charged with crime. Ir
respective of their guilt, the friction
that existed when I assumed office
has, to a large extent, disappeared and
various officials in the Police Bureau
are regarding me with less suspicion,"
reported Mr. Robinson.

ROSEBURG, Or., June 2. (Special.)
With the Jury completed at noon to
day the taking of testimony in the
case of Roy Farnam, on trial here
charged with the murder of pretty 14-year-old
Edrva Morgan, of Cow Creek
Valley, last December, began this after
W. W. Cardwell's opening statement
to the Jury In behalf of the defense
was probably the most sensational in
cident of today's proceedings.
"I will introduce a witness who will
testify that he saw an automobile pass
ing south through Cow Creek Canyon
on the night that Edna Morgan disap
peared." said Mr. Cardwell. "This au
tomobile was occupied by two men, the
identity of whom I have been unable
"I will also attempt to prove that a
young man of Southern Douglas County
made statements in which he admitted
being a friend of Edna Morgan. I will
further show that when I went to Glen
dale to interview this man he was
taken to Portland and later com
mitted to an asylum. I understand
that he is now out of the jurisdiction
of this court. Other witnesses will
tell of admissions made by this man."
Among the witnesses who testified
for the state today were R. M. Morgan,
father of Edna Morgan; Esther Morgan,
sister of the dead girl; H. H. Beamer,
in whose barn the state alleges Edna
Morgan was murdered; E. K. Wilson
and T. F. McGinnis.
During his testimony Mr. Morgan
was so overcome that he was unable
to proceed for several minutes.
Messrs. Beamer, McGinnis and Wil
son testified as to finding human
tracks which the state says were those
of Edna Morgan. The tracks were
found near the Beamer barn on the
morning following the fire, according
to the witnesses.

OF MEXICO DOUBTED
Military Men Say 3 Months
Will Be Necessary to
STRENGTH ESTIMATES VARY
Some Officers Believe United States
Will Xeed rce of 2 50,0 0 0 Men
and Consider National Guard
as Inefficient . Now.
President Wilson's pointed hint at the
possibility of armed intervention by
this country in Mexico unless leaders
of the factions there can unite for the
relief and redemption of their country,
was a lively topic of discussion among
There .was much speculation as to
the force the United States would have
available for immediate service, and
how long it would be before an army
large enough to subjugate the country
and occupy It until the need for mili
tary occupation was ended, could be
raised and trained. .
Although neither regular Army offi
cers at Vancouver nor National Guard
officers at Portland would be quoted.
It is known that they figutas that the
present National Guard forces of the
United States would be practically use
less as an efficient military force for
some months to come, and that at least
100,000 men would be needed in any of
fensive operations on a large scale.
One estimate went as high as 250,000
troops, because of the necessity of
garrisoning practically the whole coun
try, north and south, before the guer
rilla warfare almost certain to result
could be put down.
One Estimate la 34,000 Men.
The most optimistic estimate of the
regular Army force that would be im
mediately available was 34,000. This
constitutes the entire mobile Army of
the United States. To gather a force
of that size would involve the neces
sity of calling out all troops from the
various Army posts, with the excep
tion of the Coast Artillery.
Even the .estimate that 34,000 regular
troops could be mobilized is regarded
as too high by many officers. It was
recalled yesterday that at the end of
President Taft's administration, when
all available troops were concentrated
at a point on the frontier, in spite of
all efforts to tring 25.000 troops there,
only 20,000 could be mobilized.
The President is not empowered to
send National Guard troops out of the
United States, so in the event of armed
intervention it would be necessary to
re-enlist National Guardsmen who vol
unteered into the United States Army.
Latest available figures show the
total number of National Guard troops
in the United States to be about 120,000.
Of these Army officers believe not to
exceed 100,000 would be suitable Army
material, even if that number should
volunteer. If one-half were to vol
unteer estimates would he exceeded.
Moreover, the average number of
troops in National Guard companies
today is only 50, while a company
strength on war footing is 150 men.
Three Months' Training Jfeeded.
To bring regiments re-enlisted from
the National Guard to a war footing
it would thus be necessary to fill two
thirds of their ranks with absolutely
raw men. who had never had even a
National Guard military training, even!

War veterans and ex-Guardsmen would
Ajmy officers declare that even to
train these men so that they would be
fairly efficient against half-civilized

ready for field service by that time,
but it would have to gain its efficiency
through actual field service, a costly
To make real soldiers of volunteer
regiments Army officers say that from
six to eight months is absolutely es
sential. Volunteers put into the field
before that time would be regarded as

Figures showing how little the Na
tional Guard could be depended on to
provide trained soldiers in any cam
paign are given in a recent issue of
the Army and Navy Journal, based on
the report of the United States Army
chief of staff for 1914.
Of a total of 119,087 National Guards
men in all the states, there were 37,874
who failed to attend 24 out of 52 drills
in the year, a percentage of 81.8 who
were not at even 24 drills.
73 Per Cent Take Instruction.
Only 81 per cent attended the annual
Federal inspection, . while only 73 per
cent were at the instruction camps.
Only 52.5 of the men had any prac
tice with the rifle on the ranges, the
most essential thing in military train
ing, during the year. Of those qualify
ing as second-class marksmen the per
centage was only one-third.
Not a single National Guard unit
marched in maximum strength for 10
miles, fully equipped and armed.
Out of 2000 company units 1120 or
ganizations were below even their pre
scribed minimum strength.
All this is pointed out by army offi
cers not in criticism of the National
Guard, for they have only the highest
praise for the patriotic spirit of the
men who enter the Guard and work
under adverse conditions to make them
selves proficient, but in support of the
contention that the National Guard as
an organization could not be depended
on as more than a basis for enlisting
and training volunteer troops.
The 30.000 to 34,000 regular troops
that would be available they believe
would be utterly inadequate for con
ducting any large campaign in Mexico,
because of the practical certainty that
after one or two spirited battles the
lighting would degenerate into guerrilla
warfare. This would make it essential
to leave troops at the principal points
all over Mexico in sufficient numbers
to put down outbreaks, before armed
intervention could be suceessful.

FEW MILD WORDS CAUSE COUNCIL
MAX TO CHANGE VOTE.
Mrs. Sarah A. Evans, Speaking for Club
Delegation, Wins With Plea for
Additional Dairy Herd Tester.
With a few mild words Mrs. Sarah A.
Evans, as spokesman for a small dele
gation of members of women'a clubs,
yesterday snatched from defeat an or
dinance which has been the souree of
controversy among members of the City
Council for about two weeks past. The
measure provides for the employment
of an additional veterinarian to assist
the City Health Bureau in catching up
with the requests for tests of dairy
he,rda for tuberculosis.
The measure was presented by Mayo.
Albee two weeks ago, with an emer
gency clause attached so that the man
could be employed at once. This re
quired unanimous vote. Commissioner
Daly opposed it.
In the meantime the women's organi
zations became interested in the bill
and yesterday a delegation went to the
Council chamber to lend their moral
support to its enactment.
The roll was called on passage. Com
missioner Bigelow voted against it.
Then came Mrs. Evans to her feet and
said that the measure should be passed
with an emergency so that the veterin
arian could be put to work at once.
She had not spoken more than a doz
en words when Mayor Albee, author
of the measure," asked Mr. Bigelow if
he would not change his attitude. Mr.
Bigelow not only voted for reconsid

its passage, making it effective at
