He aroused his audience to tremen

and chest forward and declared em
phatically: "In those undertakings we must all

Ha then took up a review of tha
roast defenses of the country which,
ha declared, approach nearer tha mod

the Army or the Navy.
As the Navy is the first line of de
fense, be explained, the coast works
are the second line.
"These fortifications are not. as Is so
generally believed, for the purpose of
preventing an army from lending on
our cossts." he continued. "With more

His discussion of the Army was
summed up In his opening statement
on this subject, which was expressed
bluntly but deliberately:
"Our Army Is very weak."

spKe on "tx-l'resldents." He pre

pointed to the fact that rival news

He took occasion to welcome the
guest of honor as "one of the profes

Carroll, "he has risen to the full dig

nonors and credit to our profession.'
c f . Irvine, or the Journal, indulged
n a satirical review of the eventa of
191J that brought President Taft Into
new prominence through the attacks of
his opponents. He humorously nor
trayed Mr. Taft as the "bad man" of
the Republican convention the man
who waa responsible for all the Ills of
the social world that bis enemies o
tbe time undertook to cure.
He continued In this manner for a
brief period, and none enjoyed his sub

more than did Mr. Taft himself.
He concluded with an eloquent trib
ute to Mr. Taft'a course of conduct,
through which, he said, he has risen

in is country an example of what an ex-

JOMELLI THRILLS CROWDS
AT MAJESTIC THEATER,
So much of a popular hit did
Madame Jomelli make before the
audience of 25,000 at the open
air concert In Laurelhurst Park
last Thursday night that a wide
spread demand arose to hear her
in a new repertoire of songs right
Jomelli began a week's concert
engagement yesterday at the Ma

magnificent rendition of songs
and ballads were quite success

applause from large audiences.
Jomelli is in fine vcice, and she

rare that vaudeville attracts such
a grand opera prima donna su
perbly dowered with vocal gifts,
Jomelli began by singing a gay,
dazzling French song by Chami
nade. a number that had lots of
runs and trills in it and tbe
singer was more than equal to
the heavy demands made on her
voealism. The song has a tre
mendous climax, and the last note
was a beautiful, shining, spar
A rousing recall was Jomelli's
reward, and she responded witb
that favorite song of John Mc
Cormack's, "I Hear You Calling
Me," sung with a mysticism, a
romance, a fine, tender sentiment
Warm applause. In reply to a
second recall, Jomelli sang, with
fine optimism, "The Year's at the
Spring." She looked beaming,
happy and youthful.
Miss Constance Piper was the
piano accompanist, and played
with splendid ability and musical
The Jomelli programme heard
is only one of many. She is to

This chance to hear a real
