Dr. Franker Discusses Disease as
Element of Poverty.
Great advances in the study of phi
lanthropy and humanitarian science in
the past 10 years have been made in
this country, asserted Dr. Lee T.
Frankel, Th. D., of New York, prominent
social worker, Thursday night at the
Temple Beth Israel, where he spoke on
unemployment and the causes of social
Expert workers are learning more
and more, he said, of the underlying
reasons for poverty, for which charity
is but a. temporary palliative and not
"One of the causes of poverty is ig
norance, another is disease," he said.
"The day will come when the white
plague will afflict us no more than
smallpox and the other diseases that
have been conquered. . Better care of
children is an imperative need of to
day and one step in this direction that
is an important one is the granting of
widows' pensions by 35 of our states.
"The attitude toward labor has been
changed vastly in the past decade. The
workmen's compensation act has be
come general throughout a great part
of the country and welfare work for
employes, unknown 10 years ago, is
now being carried on widely.
"One need is for trained social work
ers. In Eastern cities there have been
established schools of philanthropy and
we need the efficiency method in social
work. There is no need for a multicuic
ity of agencies to dispense aid, when
they can all be handled by one."
Dr. Frankel, who is sixth vice-president
of the Metropolitan Life Insur
ance Company, will speak this morn

Turks I'laht Confidently.
CONSTANTINOPLE, June 18. (Spe
cial via Berlin and by wireless to Say
ville. N. Y.) The forces of the allies
on the Gallipoli Peninsula at Arl Burhu
and Sedd El Bahr are in the greatest
danger, as a result of the withdrawal
of the bombarding fleets, made neces
sary by the activity of German sub
marines and the consequent difficulty
of maintaining communications oversea
from the Aegean Islands.
The British position at present is
desperate. Inability to land heavy ar
tillery at first was compensated for by
the protection given by the guns of
the fleet, but the withdrawal of ships
from Ari Burhu leaves the shore forces
resting almost on the water's edge,
without means of' meeting attacks.
Heavy British batteries are mounted
on the surrounding heights.
These statements are made after a
week spent in the Turkish field under
the first personal pass issued to a
newspaper correspondent by Field Mar
shal Liman von Sanders, the Commander-in-Chief
of the Turkish army.
The Turks are fighting confidently.
aided by German machine gun squads.
The greatest advance made by the Brit
ish at Ari Burhu is 1000 yards from
shore. At Sedd El Bahr It is about two
miles. The forts at Chanak and Kalid
Bahr are still intact. The net results
of the British attempt to force the Dar
danelles are at present almost without
result. The general impression at Con
stantinople is that the attack as at
present conducted is a failure.
The bombardment of March 18 was

GERMANY HAILS NEW FOE
Participation of Greece on Side of
Allies Is Conceded.
BERLIN, via London, June 18. The
news of the complete victory in the
Grecian general election of the party of
ex-Premier Venizelos, which is in favor
of Greece's participation in the war
on the side of the allies, has proved
an unpleasant surprise to the news
papers of Germany.
The Kreua Zeitung publishes a head
line over the Athens election dispatches
reading, "The Next Enemy," and says:
"With this result the return of M.
Venizelos to the government is as good
as secured, and with the support of
Buch a majority in the chamber (Veni
zelos has 193 beats and the government
100, out of a total of 316) he will be
able to carry through, against all
other influences, his policy of joining
with the quadruple entente."
BANKER SUED FOR $50,000
James H. Van Zandt Alleges Mall
Because he was arrested on May 19
charged with obtaining money by false
pretenses, James H. Van Zant has filed
suit against Herman Hirshbcrg, an In
dependence banker, and Charles P. An
derson, a farmer of Independence, for
$50,000, alleging malicious prosecution.
Van Zandt was. released from .the
charge on May 25 by District Judge
Dayton, who severely scored Anderson
for causing his arrest. Van Zandt had
leased his farm to Anderson. Acting
on a rumor that Hirshberg actually
held title to the land, Anderson quick
ly came to Portland and swore- to a
complaint against Van Zandt for leas
ing a farm he did not own. Van Zandt
easily showed that, ha had clear titla
to -the property - and that Hirshberg
merely held the deed In escrow.

S. P. Lockwood and Dr. E. A.
Sommer Give Views on
TEACHERS HEAR SPEECHES
Mr. Lockwood Indorses Tenure of
Office Bill and Xiglit Schools.
Dr. Sommer Favors Greater
Use of School Buildings.
S. P. Lockwood and Dr. E. A. Sommer,
candidates for School Director at to
day's school election in Portland, were
the principal speakers at a dinner held
by the Oregon .Civic League at the
Hazelwood Thursday night. A. C.
Newill presided. A large proportion of
those at the dinner were teachers.
The speaking was in no sense a de
bate. Each candidate had been invited
to attend and discuss his candidacy and
his views on school administration. Mr.
Lockwood was the first speaker.
"I have been misquoted with refer
ence to the teachers' tenure of office
bill," said Mr. Lockwood in part, "I
am not opposed to the law.
Extension of Xlght Schools Favored.
"To be selected as School Director is
one of the highest honors that could
come to a man. When several hun
dred such men as indorsed my candi
dacy tell a man it is his duty to run, it
is hard to say no. I found it hard to
say no under such circumstances, and
so I am in the race."
Mr. Lockwood said that he was in
favor of the extension of night school
work as one constructive policy of the
"Whenever a body of boys and girls,
or of men and women, want to get to
gether for study to improve them
selves, I feel it to be the duty of the
School Board to give the equipment
and teachers, not only in the ordinary
school branches, but in domestic sci
ence work as well." he explained.
"Whatever increases the individual ef
ficiency of our citizens and future citi
zens increases the efficiency of the
whole community as well."
"I have been told several times that
there is an impression that I am in
favor of introducing the reading of the
Bible in the public schools," Mr. Lock
wood said- further on in his address.
"Let me say positively that I am not.
I am opposed to it because of the di
versity of sectarian beliefs among the
parents of pupils, and because there is
ample opportunity of studying the Bible
in other places than in the public
Selection for Merit Favored.
Mr. Lockwood was asked if he
thought that an incompetent teacher
should be kept in the schools just be
cause she needed the employment.-
"No." he replied. "The importance of
school work is too great to be jeop
ardized or interfered with in any way
by incompetents. I will say further
that if a teacher were independently
wealthy and a fine teacher, she ought
to be kept in her position because of
her ability, even though someone of
less ability greatly needed the position.
Merit alone should determine tha se
lection of teachers."
Dr. Sommer, who is seeking re-election
to the School Board, said that he
had been graduated from the public
schools and higher institutions of
learning in the United States, and had
become much Interested in educational
matters. He was a candidate for re
election, he explained, because with his
interest in the schools and his experi
ence as a member of the Board, he felt
he could give a useful return in pub
lic service to the community.
Law Regarded as Good.
"Before T went on th? Board." he
went on. "the Legislature had passed
the tenure of office law for teachers.
After the recent school survey I had
some doubt as to the good that might
come of the law, but on studying the
law and conditions that had existed
before Its enactment, I came to the
conclusion that the teachers must have
had a good and valid reason for ask
ing for such a measure. And I am
satisfied that If the School Board will
do its share and pass the recommenda
tion of the teachers' committee that ap
plicants Tor positions in our schools
pass an oral and written examination
before they can be placed on the
eligible list, and then be put on two
years' probation, there will be no rea
son to complain about the law."
He praised the law passed by the last
Legislature relating - to the use of
school buildings as community centers,
and added that he considered this law
an opening wedge for promoting the
use of public buildings for public
"This Is a question doubly important
since we have voted out the saloons,"
he. went on, "and we must give the
public places to gather for social and
educational work. I hope that the next
Legislature will provide funds to carry
on this social center work in the proper
Mistakes Are Admitted.
"I have had differences with every
other member of the Board at our
meetings, but no ill will has been car
ried away from these meetings. When
the majority has decided a question,
then I have supported the majority de
"I have made mistakes as a member
of the School Board. And for the man
who makes no mistakes, I have no use.
But the man who makes a mistake and
admits he made a mistake will not
make the same mistake again."
School Clerk Thomas made a brief
talk explaining the qualifications of
voters at school elections.

$50,000 BID FOR SARGENT
Jted Cross Auction Brings Kecord
Price to American Painter.
LONDON, June 14. Everyone in
terested in art is wondering who will
be nominated by Sir Hugh Lane to sit
for the Sargent portrait for which he
ofTered to pay $50,000, falling a higher
offer, at the Red Cross auction held
at Christie's. Of course, the price
offered has created a tremendous sensa
tion in art and society circles, and,
taken' In connection with the offers
made for canvases by other artists, of
which $3500 for a Lazlo was the high
est, it is a striking evidence of the in
creasingly high opinion set upon the
work of the famous American painter.
Undoubtedly the price is due in a
measure to the special occasion, but
it is also due largely to the fact that
Sargent determined some time ago to
paint no more portraits. When, asked
to contribute a blank canvas, with
other artists, to the Christie . auction,
Sargent at first refused to break his
determination, but agreed to draw two
charcoal sketches of the highest bid

South American Fields Valued at
500,000,000 Prove Worthlesa and
Promoter la Arretted.
NEW YORK. June 11. Alexis I. Du
pont. secretary of the Dupont De Ne
mours Powder Company; John Ban
croft. Frank Connable and a number of
the other leading citizens of Wilming
ton, Del., know a great deal more of
the goldfields in "the wilds of far
away Peru" than they did when Ray
mond McCune, mining engineer, came
to Wilmington in October, 1912, to tell
theiu, of the wealth that might be dug
from the earth in the region of the
Maranon River by any one who was
intrepid enough to brave the man
eating savages there.
This Increased knowledge on the part
of the leading citizens was responsible
for the arraignment of McCune before
United States Commissioner Houghton
on a removal warrant from Wilming
ton, charging the young man with
using the mails to defraud in the sale
of about $200,000 worth of the stock
of the Peru Gold Placers, incorporated,
a Delaware corporation, with offices in
the White Hall building in this city.
McCune is the son of A. W. Mc
Cune, the wealthy railroad and mine
owner of Salt Lake City, who was
former partner of the late James B.
His arrest at his apartments here
followed close on the heels of the
report of the theft of ?S500 worth of
jewelry from his flat.
His stay overnight In police head
quarters had apparently not prevented
him making a careful toilet. As he
waited for his attorney, Charles B.
Brophy, he frequently consulted a gold
wrist watch. After his release on a
$20,000 bail bond furnished by the Na
tional Surety Company he refused to
make a statement concerning the case.
McCune says that he is a graduate of
the Columbia School of Mines. Post'
office Inspector Barber, who has in
vestigated some of his assertions, says
that McCune went to Columbia Uni
versity, but never took the mining
According to Assistant United States
Attorney Frank M Roosa, McCune in
1912 fired the enthusiasm of the Dela
ware financiers with a story of how he
had probably discovered the goldfields
from which the Incaa dug the fabulous
ransom they paid to the conqueror,
Piazaro. While visiting his father's
railroad concessions near the Maranon
River he is alleged to have said he got
his Information from one of the ab
origines. After the Peruvian Exploration Com
pany had been organized and a group
of financiers had raised funds to rinance
a prospecting trip to the Maranon
River region, McCune led a party to
the section. He was gone six months
and the'report he made on his return
and the subsequent pamphlets issued by
him were of a glowing nature.
The upper gravel benches In the vi
cinity of the river, McCune thought
ought to contain between $200.0.10.000
and $500,000,000 worth of gold. Accord
ing to his assay the gold deposft was
valued at an average of 80.9 cents per
His report was followed by the or

Company, incorporated, of Delaware,
three of the organizers being John J.
