of the committee, says that "repeated

with the idea that hereafter there shall

On this subject the committee's only
standing rule contained in the general

placed nor revoked was as follows:
"All messages received from abroad
by cable or wireless are censored at
the point of dispatch or receipt and
are free for publication unless some
especial circumstance arouses the sus

The new rules, instead of stating
this principle, substitute for It a pro

the schedule for the ninth week calls
for no end of hard work. It Is going to

will come the new assignment of troops

For a week large details of soldiers
have been busy making the ground
ready for the home-coming companies.
The work has Included the switching
of the picket lines, the blasting of
stumps, the digging of a well, and tha
arrival of quartermaster stores for the
units which came Into the service on
July 25. Because of the vast amount of
work being done, heavy Inroads have
been made on the companies that have
been weekly following the schedule,
and a company commander Is lucky If
he can turn out 60 men for drllL
Just how soon the Portland units
will be moved to this camp Is hard to
guess, but the move will be made lust
as quickly as the supplies arrive. Even
this end of the war game Is being
played "pronto." The quartermaster's
department has an unbroken record for
breaking down when put to the test,
but Judging from the prompt way in
which supplies for the new units are
arriving, both at camp and at Port
land, this very Important department
of the Government Is going out to es
tablish a new record.
In the supplies which have arrived
are about 800 cantonment cots and lum
ber for flooring for the squad tents.
An expert welldigger has Been called
in to finish digging the well. The in
tention is to drive the well deep enough
to find water, not only for the stock it

Papers published In ports should, with
especial care, refrain from giving In
formation to enemy agents in regard
to ships stationed or calling at such
ports. Because dangerous news Is
known locally It does not follow that
it can be safely published. Non-publication
of dangerous news obliges the
enemy to rely on spies actually In the
localities concerned, thus adding dif
ficulties and delay in its transmission.

it Is asked that this Information be

appreciate the importance of co-opera
tion to withhold from the enemy sucd
information as might expose the offi

danger of cruel and outrageous re
prisal. '13. Information of coast defenses

the voluntary censorship have been at
tempted to be excused on the score of
misunderstanding or lack of positive
information. Pains have been taken to
make this re-statement of necessary
secrecies so complete and explicit as
to leave no room for honest Ignorance
or dishonorable evasion. Neither do
the requests go forth with any time
limit. Their application covers the
period of war. At no point do they
touch opinion or criticism, being con
cerned entirely with the protection of
the lives of America's defenders and
the success of military plans.
"These requests go to the press with
out larger authority than the neces

Their enforcement is a matter for

The council took no definite action
on the Mayors' resolution and It was
stated that local action to bring peace
would follow failure of the state coun

have been settled in the recent confer

of shipbuilding is predicted if the lum

executive session, but announced no
definite policy or plan of action other
than urging conciliation.

Grand avenue and Powell street while
passing out handbills, proclaiming that
all the tlmbermen and millworkers of
the Northwest were on a strike.
Among the interesting features of
Erlandsen's propaganda was a list of
the concessions the I. W. W. demanded
before settling their alleged strike.
They wanted a minimum wage of $3.60
a day with free hospital service: they
wanted each man In the lumber camps
to have a separate bed with linen sheets
and pillow-slips, and they wanted
shower-baths erected in connection
with sleeping quarters. They also de
manded that the timber operators re
fuse to hire nonunion men.
