DRY PETITION STILL
LACKS 5000 NAMES
Woman's Temperance Union
and Prohibition Party Urge
Supporters to Action.
ONLY THREE DAYS ARE LEFT
Interest In Stopping Importation of
Liquor Is Lax, While Movement
to Permit Breweries to Run
Declared to Be Gaining.
With three days remaining in which
to circulate petitions, the Prohibition
ists lack still 6000 names of having
sufficient to put on the ballot their
proposed measure to prevent shipment
of any liquor into the state.
This was the announcement made, by
E' A. Baker, of the Anti-Saloon League,
and J. .Sanger Fox. secretary of the
Oregon Prohibition State Committee, at
a mass meeting called at the Library
yesterday to stir up Interest in a rapid
circulation of petitions in Multnomah
County to make up the names that are.
ctill lacking. -
ixty-seven persona attended the
. mass meeting, which was called under
the joint auspices of the Women's
Christian Temperance Union and the
Mr. Fox had 100 blank petitions
passed among those present, urging
that they take them and pledge to get
them filled within the next two days.
These petitions filled would represent
2000 of the desired 6000 names.
Some Decline to Take Petition.
About 40 petitions out of the 100
' -were taken, but a large number of
those in the audience declined to take
Several men pledged themselves,
however, to visit the car barns this
morning with petitions and to endeavor
to secure as many signatures as pos
: eible from the street railway employes.
Mr. Fox said that the 6000 deficit
- represented the count on petitions up
" to Saturday night, and expressed the
opinion that enough names to put the
measure on the ballot may yet be re
" ceived from other cities in the state
outside of Portland-
Multnomah County has furnished
only 3500 of the names out of the
17,000 that have been secured, accord
ing to Mr. Fox.
-- "The brewers .have at this moment
.more than "30,000 signatures on their
' petition which would permit the manu
facture and sale in original packages
of 1 per cent beers, within the state of
Oregon." said Mr. Baker, "while the
Prohibitionists are 5000 names short, in
"It means that you people have gone
to 6leep. We have yet July 3, 4 and 5
In which to get those signatures, and
. it la up to us to wake up and get
- them if we expect to get onto the
Brewers' Bill (Sains Support.
"There is a good prospect of' the
brewers' measure carrying," said J. C.
Newell, chairman of the Prohibition
T party. "It is surprising how many
jrood men of the state, men of the best
J character, are supporting it. I verily
believe that if it were put to a vote
' today, without ' further argument, It
- would pass. It is up to us to get the
people of Oregon awakened and flght-
. ing if we ijope to offset it."
Other speakers were G. N. Taylor and
Mrs. Jennie Kemp, state president of
T the Women's Christian Temperance
- Union. Mrs. M. L. T. Hidden presided
;- over the meeting.
The proposed prohibition amendment
preventing the importation of any In
toxicating liquor into the state is
brought forward by the Prohibitionists
- and they are endeavoring to put it on
the ballot to offset the other amend
ment that is being put out to make it
possible to manufacture light beers
within the state.
' "If the brewers had kept still,"' de-
clared Mrs. Kemp yesterday, "we might
have been willing to let them have
; their Imported liquor under the legal
- restrictions for a while not that we
wouldn't have taken it all away from
them as soon as we were able.
"But now that they have started this
fight we want to make it impossible to
pet any liquor of any kind into the
tate, and to make it genuinely a pro
hibition state at once."

PATRIOTISM IS EXULTED
NORWEGIAN LUTHERAN PASTOR
ON NATIONAL DESTINY.
Rev. W. Petterson Says America, Wltb
Wonderful Opportunities. Ia Called

A patriotism which would lead men
to sacrifice their own selfish interests
for the good of the whole Nation, was
held up as an ieai by Rev. W(lhelm
Petterson, pastor of the United Nor

and Davis streets, in his sermon de
livered yesterday morning.
"Such a patriotism," declared Rev.
Mr. Petterson, "Is in that respect re-
lgious. But true patrotism is more than
that.. It. is also watchful of . dangers,
and it meets, those dangers rather than

Rev. Mr. Petterson emphasized the
responsibility of the individual in the

has not given us such wonderful op
portunities and vast resources in order
that we might sink lower, but rather
that we should mount higher. We
have practically everything that man
could want. The question is are we
working out a better human destiny
here? If not, God's purpose has failed."
Rev. Mr. Petterson emphasized the
need of the racial and national barriers
separating peoples in other countries
being lost, here in one great cosmo

said, "can bring to our new country

BAN DON, Or.. July 2. (Special. f
Differences between two factions m the
Two-MUe school district, south of this
city, growing out of the question of the
location ef a new schoolhouse to re
place the one destroyed by fire last
aii. have created a situation which
threatens to involve not only the dis
trict, but also county school officials,
in legal proceedings.
Latest developments in the tangle
are the destruction, of the school dis
trict records and the dismissal of
George Cox, one member of the School
Board by County Superintendent Ray
mond E. Baker. The records were de
stroyed in a fire which consumed the
office of Arthur Covell, former district
clerk, on the night of June 27 and
which Mr. Covell declares was -of . in
Soon after the old schoolhouse burned
down the voters in the Two-Mile dis
trict beid a meeting to consider the
question of rebuilding. At the meeting
it developed that there were two fac
Hons, one favoring the site of the old
schoolhouse as the location for the new
one, and the other faction favoring a
site on the new township line road,
which is being constructed between
Bandon and the Curry County line. Ex
ponents of the old site, however, were
in the majority, and It was voted to
build over the ashes of the old build
Before actual construction of the new
schoolhouse had commenced the oppo
nents of the old site secured an In
junction restraining the Board from
going further, on the grounds that the
meeting had not been conducted ac
