THEY were not missionaries in the ;
cause of temperance, those white
ribboned "W. C. T. U. members who
were in Portland yesterday.
No. indeed! In face of the fact that
Oregon already has voted to- abolish
the saloons, these earnest women could
do naught but listen and observe so
that they might be able to carry the
lesson of Oregon's prohibition victory
back to their respective states.
'Why, we can't tell you people here
In Oregon anything about temperance,"
exclaimed Miss Anna A. Gordon, the
National president, who arrived at the
head of two special train parties yes
terday afternoon. "We are here to
learn, not to teach."
The women represent nearly every
state in the Union. . They visited here
for seven or eight hours on their way
to their National convention.
Officials of the W. C. T. U. in Ore
Ron, and other prohibition workers,
joined hands in extending them a wel

The party was greeted at the Union
station by a. demonstrative and en
thusiastic group of men and women
who had a big battery of automobiles
in waiting. As soon as tho Informal
reception under the trainsheds was
over tho ready cars carried the visitors
over a scenic sightseeing trip through
both the east and west sides of the
Following this delightful trip the
party gathered at -the Chamber of Com
merce, where headquarters were main
tained. A banquet, attended by many
of Portland's leading citizens, was the
principal social function in connection
with the women's visit. This function
started at 7 o'clock last night and was
followed by a series of short speeches
that kept the crowd entertained until
after 10 o'clock. The special trains left
for Seattle an hour later. A large dele

Memorial Services Conducted.
An interesting incident in connection
with the visit of the National leaders
yesterday was the ceremony at the
Portland Surgical Hospital, where Mrs.
Elizabeth P. Hutchinson, National
treasurer of the W. C. T. U., recently
died. A memorial service was con
ducted there and a library was pre
rented to the hospital to commemorate
Inasmuch as the visitors represented
nearly every part of the country, their
reception was delegated to the officials
of the various state socieities in Ore
Each state was represented in the
crowd that lined up around the Iron
;ates at the Union Depot. As the vis
itors, escorted from the train by Mrs.
Jennie M. Kemp. Oregon state presi
dent, marched through, the members
of the reception committee tried to
single out those from their own states.
Missouriana Are Present.
"Missouri, Missouri, Missouri," called
one group of young women right near
the front Soon several Missouri wom
en introduced themselves. They were
conducted to the Missouri automobile.
"Is anyone here from Ohio?" queried
A, committee of former residents of the
Buckeye State. Soon a number of Ohio
visitors presented themselves.
Thus the excursionists were taken
cre of. Many among them found old
friends among the local reception com
mittees. Mrs. Kemp and Mrs. Henrietta Brown
journeyed east to The Dalles to meet
the special trains and to extend a for
mal welcome to the visitors. J. E.
Anderson, Mayor of The Dalles, who In
troduced the prohibition bill in the Ore

the women there. An informal recep

Mary P. Bang, of Nashville, Tenn.,
president for her state, and many oth
ers. All the women were interested In the
success of the prohibition movement
in Oregon and Washington.
All were so hugely encouraged by
this success that they expressed their
determination to go home and press
their efforts for the temperance cause
harder than ever.
"I know we have a hard battle be
fore us in Kentucky," said Mrs. Beau
champ, president for that state, "but
we know nothing is impossible. What
you have done in .Oregon we can do in
Oregon Women Congratulated. j
Some of the women represent states
that are "dry" already, and they and
their Oregon sisters exchanged mutual
One of these was Mrs. Bang, of
Nashville, Tenn., who is confident that
the prohibition movement will succeed
in every state in the Nation.
Mrs. Bang was a traveler on the first
of the two specials, but left the train at
Multnomah Falls to view the scenery.
The train started away in her absence,
carrying her hat and coat with it. But
she boarded the second section suc
cessfully and rode triumphantly to
Portland, where she recovered her gar
ments and her baggage.
Scores of Oregon women who at
tended the state convention at New

Portland reception committee yester
day afternoon and participated In the
festivities at the Chamber of Commerce
LEGAL RIGHTS COMPLEX
Protection of Foster Parents and
State Help for Unmarried Moth
ers Are Advocated. Before
Home-Find ins Bodies.
That every effort should be made to
safeguard dependent and neglected
children and protect the foster parents
as well, was he consensus of oplniOD
of the state superintendents and field
agents expressed yesterday at the
meeting of the "Pacific Conference of
Children's Home-Finding Societies, held
at the Receiving Home of the Beys
and Girls' Aid Society, East Twenty
From the discussions it could be
seen that every problem was complex
and that there were several problems
in connection with the legal rights of
dependent children, their parents and
foster parents, that must be solved. In
the morning session nearly two hours
were occupied by consideration of the
topic, "What Is the Legal Status of the
Child of the Foster Parents?" which
was presented by John J. Teuscher, Jr.,
field agent of the Oregon Boys and
Girls' Aid Society, who presented the
law bearing on the subject. He con
tended that great care should be exer
cised in adopting children so that the
law shall be observed and for the fu
ture welfare of the children adopted
"Doughnut Mat." Today, Empress.
Much comment has been caused by
the doughnuts that are strung under
the canopy of the Empress Theater
and passersby have been wondering at
the idea. As a result of a hunting ex
pedition on tbe private grounds of
Portland's "doughnut king," Dan Maley
and Charles Dayton, a couple of "nuts"
who offer a screamingly funny act at
the Empress called the "Doughnut
Hunters," sent several hundred dough
nuts to Manager Conlon and have asked
his pedraission to announce a special
"Doughnut Matinee" today. - Every

- State Aid Is Advocated. .
'What Should Be Done With the
Children of Unmarried Mothers?" was
answered by Mrs. H. II. Heller to the
effect that as far as possible the
mother should keep and raise the child
and should receive state aid if neces
sary. She held that such mothers are
not wholly bad and more often sinned
against than sinning, and that no ef
fort should be spared to enable her to
take care of her child, to feel her re
sponsibility as a parent even in her
misfortune. However, there were cases
where it would be well to release the
child for adoption, she said. She con
demned the double moral standard that
condemns the mother and permits the
father to escape.
Rev. Marion Johnson, of Washington,
argued that to aid the unmarried
mother through the state was a dan
gerous thing, and might tend to en
courage illegitimacy. H. C. Leven
worth contended that society -must be
protected, that young girls must be
protected and that children of unmar
ried men and women are evidence of
crime which must not be minimized In
Suburban Homes Tltons;lit Best.
"How Best to Place the Child in the

Kilpack, who emphasized the need of
careful investigation In finding homes,
so that the child will fit the home in

may (it the cniia.
"We find in Montana," said Super
Intendent J. V. Hawks, "that the sub
urban homes are the best and are bet
ter than the city homes. We have less
trouble with the country homes than
the city homes."
"How Best to Safeguard the Foster
Parents in the Placement of Children
of Doubtful Mentality" was presented
by Superintendent R. E. Arne.

Commissioner Baker's plan for han

ordinances, one providing- for the es
tablishment of a bureau of labor with
one chief clerk in charge of the men's
work, and another clerk, a woman, to

Salaries of the employes and the
amount to be appropriated for the work
are left blank in the proposed meas
ures, it being- Mr. Baker's intention
to have the Council till these in when

In the ordinance creating- the new

get busy on the work for the coming

new bureau organized and in working

accomplished, he says, unless there Is
