Disposition to Be Made of Money on
Hand Vp to Federation.
"Every cent collected by the Oregon
Federation of Women's Clubs for anti
tuberculosis work will be used for that
purpose and for that alone." This was
ttie statement made yesterday by Mrs.
Harah A. Evans, president of the feder
ation, discussing the business that will
come up before the club convention,
whlfh will open tonight in Salem.
What disposition will be made by
the clubs of the sum they have on
hand for anti-tuberculosis work is to
be decided on probably at the Wednes
day afternoon session. The women's
clubs had charge of the sale of Red
Cross seals throughout the state for
several years and the Visiting Nurse
Association sold the seals in Portland.
Last year the clubs took over the city
work also.
They had about $1SOO already in the
treasury to which they added nearly
$f000 in 1914. Various amounts have
been expended whenever a plea for
help has been presented to the federa
tion, and there is now on hand $4700 to
be expended on anti-tuberculosis work.
The Oregon branch of the National
Society for the Prevention of Tubercu
losis was organized recently and the
local work along those lines is no
longer In the hands of the clubs. As
they worked hard for the money and
are perfectly willing to expend it on the
work for which it is intended many of
the women will probably favor keeping
the fund and continuing to do relief
work with it instead of turning it
over to the newly organized branch of
the National Society.
According to the statement of Mrs.
Evens, the clubs are willing to co
operate with the National organization
by giving freely of the money when
ever a deserving case is brought to
their attention.- On Friday Sadie Orr
Dunbar, -secretary of the National
branch, advised Mrs. Evans of a needy
woman in the last stages of consump
tion, and Mrs. Evans immediately or
dered a nurse and comforts and care
for the patient fur a month or as long
as needed .
Mrs. Dunbar, who is chairman of the
committee of public health, said that
the clubs had not refused to give help,
but it was lier opinion that It had
not been generally known that they had
this sum, and therefore cases had not
been brought to their attention.

He added:
I cannot understand why there
should ho such astonishment in Lon

have taken in the Bulkans.
"Will the clearing of a direct road
from Berlin to Constantinople mean

"I'm not in the confidence of the
general staff, but it is conceivable
that some such move is planneu
against England's 'Heel of Achilles,'
as some people here call Egypt."
Turning to me. Harden then asked:
"What do you think of Grey?"
"I have never agreed with the views
held in Germany that he is an arch
fiend rind the Mephistopheles of this
war," I replied.
"Neither do I," declared Harden, I
do not know him personally, but I have
taiKed with, numerous diplomats, both
German and others, who do know him
well, and they have always character
ized him to me as a man of high ideals
and peace-loving nature. I would con
sider Grey's retirement as the worst
possible blow to any hopes for peace
within the next six months. If Grey
resigns, 1 believe it will be less because
he may be considered .responsible for
the failure of England s foreign policy,
especially in the Balkans, than because,
being a man of sense and reason, he
does not want to participate in the
policy of those who are attacking him.
and bringing pressure on him.
I am inclined to think that he sees the
utter uselessness of letting Europe
bleed itself to death, as it is doing."
"What do you consider as being in
the way of peace?

feat Germany in the field, wants to

Harden was of the opinion that neo

fight and bleed and die, women and

Co-Ed. Care for Children Who Have
Been Sent to Portland for Badly
Needed Operations.
Oct. 24. (Special.) The university Y.
W. C. A. has obtained $1000 worth of
employment for girls who are earning
their way through school. Most of
this employment consists of work for
room and board and odd jobs such as
sewing, washing dishes, cleaning, dust
ing. Ironing, taking care of children
nnd light office work. The pay aver
ages about 25 cents an hour.
"The Y. W. C. A. employment bureau
has been able to get work for every
girl who has applied," said' Mary Gil
lies. whO'has charge of the universitv
Y. W. C. A. "No one has been turned
away. The association is on the cam
pus to be of service to the girls. One
of the most tangible means is through
employment, thus enabling girls to re
ceive an education which otherwise
they could not have. From year to
year we hope to do this work on a
larger scale."
The social service department is do
ing some work among the criDoled chil
dren of Eugene. From time to time
small children are being sent to Port-
and for operations. So far these have
been highly successful, according ito
miss Jennie Muggins, head of this de
partment. Upon the return of the child

Public Utilities to Aid in
Political Trade.
Dry s IMgrure on Winning 95 Conn
ties if County Option Wins and
on Carrying All bnt Three
of Downstate Cities.
CHICAGO. Oct. 24. (Specal.)
"Home rule versus county ODtion" may
form the lines of the wet and dry fight
in the next Illinois Legislature. Such
is the opinion of the dry leaders, who
are already mapping out a campaign to
fit that theory.
They figure that the clamping down
of the Sunday lid in Chicago by Mayor
xnompson will impel the wets to seek
a repeal of the Sunday closing act by
linking it with the general proposition
of home rule and by embodying local
control of public utilities and of sa
loons in the same bill. -
Much Iogro!lng Expected.
Legislative leaders point out that a
situation may develop somewhat sim
ilar to that in 1907. in which the Chi
cago charter and the township option
bill were linked. They look for more
trading and logrolling than ever.
They discern two chief trading prop
ositions. The "down-state" drys might
support home rule on public utilities
in return for support on county op
tion; wets from all parts of the state
might line up for home rule on condi
tion that it embrace control of dram
shops as well as saloons. If the com
bination should not prove strong
enough to control, it is figured that
the wets might get support from Chi
cago drys on the argument that home
rule is the great thing, whether sa
loon control is included or not.
17 Cities Would Be Affected.
Chicago will not be the only city af
fected. As the drys view the situa
tion, the issue will extend to all cities
of 20,000 population and over. Of these
there are 17 on the basis of the 1910
census. Seven are dry, and 10 are wet.
They are: Chicago, wet; Peoria, wet:
East St. Louis, wet: Springfield, wet;
Rockford, dry; Qulncy, wet: Joliei,
wet; Decatur, dry; Aurora, wet; Dan
ville, 'Iry; Elgin, dry; Bloomington,
dry; Eva.i3ton, dry; Icock Island, wet;
Moline, -vet; Galesburg, dry; Belleville,
If county option passes, the drys fig
ure that 95 counties would be in the
entirely , dry column at the next elec
tion. At present 54 counties are with
out a saloon. They also estimate that
of the 17 cities above 20,000 population,
all the down-state cities would be made
dry by county option except Peoria,
East St. Lcuis and Belleville.
A home-rule bill covering the liquor
question and applying to cities of 20
000 would exempt the 17 cities from
county option.
Governor Believed Likely to Xante
Lawyer in Private Practice to
Avoid Further Change.
OLYMPIA. -Wash.. Oct. 2-t iSn.
claL) Indorsements of four Superior
Court judges for advancement to the
Supreme bench to fill the vacancy
caused by the death of Judge Herman
D. Crow are, in the hands of Governor
Lister. These candidates are Judges
John R. Mitchell, of Thurston County;
Guy C. Alston, Snohomish; Walter M.
French, Kitsap, and E. B. Preble,
Yakima. The movements in behalf of
Judges Mitchell and Preble are par
ticularly important.
There is a growing belief, however,
that the new jurist will be selectori bv
the Governor from private practice, to
avoid the necessity of also filling a
vacancy on the Superior bench. P. M.
Troy, of Olympia, is regarded by many
as the probable appointee. He is a
laiive wasningtonian. who has prac
ticed law here for 22 years and. though
prominent in public affairs, never has
held office.
Frank Reeves, of Wenatchee. former
president of the State Bar Association
and Warren W. Tolman. of Spokane,
also are mentioned prominently, but it

said Mrs. Lola G. Baldwin, head of the
Women's Municipal Protective Bureau,
in her address yesterday at the vesper
services of the Young Women's Chris
tian Association.
Mrs. Baldwin told of the Individual
work done with the girls who come
under the bureau's charge. The his
tory of the department from its begin
ning was interestingly told to a large
audience. Mrs. Baldwin said 6000 girls
have been helped.
"The girl of today has a harder time
than did the girl of yesterday. There
are more temptations," said Mrs. Bald
win. Of definite prayer she said: "I believe
in praying for just exactly what you
want. Don't pray in generalities."
The donation of $500 to the work be
fore it became a part of the nolice de.
partment, was spoken of by Mrs. Bald
win as an example of an answer to
direct prayer for money with which
to carry on the work.

for his home in Japan after having
passed four months in the study of
municipal problems in most of the
large cities of the United States
Mr. Yamashita Saturday was the
guest or the city officials and the de
tails of the working of a commission
plan of government and the adminis

were explained to him.
Mr. Yamashita said that the Cltv

for municipal improvements and al
though the work had been going
on ior in years, tnere did not seem to
be the maximum amount of efficiency
He explained that he would write
articles for his paper during the com

has observed in this country. The
next year he said that he would, after
extensive ctudy, write articles on dif
ferent forms of municipr.1 government
and publish those also in his paper.
Mr. Yamashita found the situation
of Fortland similar to that of Osaka.
He declared that New York, Philadel
phia and Portland were similarly situ
ated to Osaka and he has made a par
ticular study of the transportation
especially water facilities of these
three cities.
The paper of which Mr. Yamashita
is the editor is the fifth largest in
Osaka, and at that has a circulation
of approximately 80,000.

The reason is this. When the acute
stage of the grip is passed there often
remains a neurasthenia that- persists
for months if not properly corrected.
The patient Is moody. In poor spirits,
suffers lack of appetite and vigor and
feels Indisposed to work or even to en
joy life. Warmth and quiet alone give
comfort and these not for long at a
time. Sleep is restless and dots not
refresh the nerves which are always at
high tension.
