General Talbot, "It's up to the people
of Portland."
Thousands Wear No Button,
Chairman Emery Olmstead. of the city
campaign committee,- summed up the
situation by asserting that many thou
sands of prosperous wage earners and
residents of Portland's 320.000 popula
tion are not wearing: the button of the
fourth loan and that hundreds of well-

to-do men have not yet realized their
full duty toward the loan.
"We must act at once," said Mr. Olm
stead. "or else Portland, far from being
the first city in it3 class to attain vic
tory, will be numbered far to the rear,
with the lazy and laggard.
"I don't know what to think. Here
we are taking in from $15,000,000 to
$18,000,000 a month on Government
contracts, supplies and other Govern
ment expenditures and yet we are.
having difficulty in raising a little
more than $18,000,000 for the fourth
liberty loan.
"I hesitate to say that . Portlanders
are slackers yet from the returns of i
the drive we know that approximate
ly 40,000 people have faileir to pledge
themselves. Our records indicate that
the slackftrs are not all laboring peo
pie. The so-called rich, in most in
stances, have done well. It is the man
in comfortable circumstances who ap
pears not to be doing his full duty."
Wealthy Man Called Shirker.
Fretn the list of those whom they
have under consideration as "slackers
and shirkers," the Portland committee
has selected another name that of
William Reid, president of the National
Cold Storage & Ice Company, charging
him with failure to meet his liberty
loan obligations. The committee's
statement is as follows:
"William Reid, a shirker, president
and practically sole owner ,of the Na-
tional Cold Storage & Ice Company, 309
East Stark street, who resides at 1343
East Stark street and who is reputed
to be worth in excess of $1,000,000.
"After being solicited many times by
the fourth liberty loan committee, Mr.
Reid has subscribed only $7000 for
his entire family, including his wife,
bis son and himself.
"The fourth liberty loan committee
insists that this is grossly Inadequate.

Investigations Carefully Made,
Investigation is being carefully made
of others who are believed by the com
mittee to be dodging duty, asd further
exposures are promised if the facts
warrant such action, declares General
Talbot. ,
The outstanding sentiment of the
campaign at present is that Portland,
rich with wartime prosperity, must not
permit her good name to be tarnished
by failure with the generous example
of the loyal outer-state counties to re
buke her.

Interior Cities Oversubscribed.
"Thousands and thousand.- of homes

been difficult, but there is confidence
that these will soon announce their

"Every county in Oregon, with the
exception of Multnomah, which is held
back by Portland's tardiness, has
fought a good fight," commented Mr.
Etheridge. "Residents of the so-called
country districts have demonstrated
that they are more proficient at simple
sums in mathematics than is Portland,
for thoy realized that their previous
effort and subscriptions must be
doubled, and they have doubled them."
Voluntary Subscriptions the Rule.
Back from a tour tor the liberty loan
are Tommy G. Eyan, Sherman Hall and
Ted Lansing, who swept the Bend
country in an automobile, returning
via the McKenzie pass. On Friday
night, at meetings held in Bend,- both
Mr. Ryan and Mr. Lansing spoke for
the loan, and to such effect that 17000
was raised in voluntary subscriptions
at three rallies. ,

come to the aid of T'ortland, with a
subscription for $1500. General Talbot
yesterday received the following letter
from William Black, a merchant of
that city:
"You can' put me down for $1500 of
the fourth liberty loan bonds to help
lick the Huns, and to give the boys
over there a better heart, and plenty
of good things to eat, and lots of pow

is the matter with Portland? Get after
the slackers rough-shod."
Iron Workers Take S35.000.
The employes or the Peninsula Iron
Works have subscribed for $25,000 of
liberty bonds. The men organized their
own soliciting committee and appointed
the following to take the pledges of
the workers in the plant: M. R. Morrow,
Oliver L. Mant, W. Rolis, W. 'A. Nolan
and Bert Dennis. As a result of the
canvas of the 125 employes the solicit
ing committee obtained pledges slight
ly in excess of $200 per man.
Morris Bros., dealers in Government
and municipal bonds, have presented a
statement to the Portland liberty loan
committee, showing that their firm has
secured an aggregate of $789,950 in
fourth liberty loan subscriptions,
through purchases made ty clients and
that the subscription has' been turned
over for official receipt. Much of this
amount has been included in the daily
reports at liberty temple.

William Goldman, local manager of
the National Life Insurance Company,
yesterday received notification from
the company that its liberty bond al
lotment for Portland was $20,000 and
the subscription was immediately hand
ed in at Liberty .Temple.
Protracted patriotic campaigns may
not be to the liking of Portland, but
officials insist that the fourth bond
drive is going to plod right along on its
way until tho last dollar of the city's
quota has been subscribed and with
out outside assistance. Upon the Port
land public rests the determination of
when the drive shall be terminated.
At a special liberty bond conclave,
held Tuesday night at the Builders' Ex
change, the Master Plumbers -Associa
tion subscribed $1200 to the fourth lib
erty loan issue. It is anticipated that
other organizations in the Builders' Ex
change will follow the example set.
Favorable War News Must Not Ics-
sen Loan Efforts.
WASHINGTON. Oct. 2. President
Wilson and other officials feci that
the American people must exercise cau
tlon lest the good news from the battle
fronts cause a relaxation of effort on
behalf of the fourth liberty loan. Thus
far no such tendency has been notice
able and the campaign has been going
with an enthusiasm comparable to- that
with which the battle reports have
Deen received.
It is pointed out that, now that vie
tory is definitely being brought to the
side of the allied armies, funds and
more funds are needed to enable the
fighting men to press home their hard
won advantage and hurl the German
hordes beyond the Rhine.
Official reports today from all Fed
eral Reserve districts except Kansas
City, which has not started taking fig
ures, showed $411,142,060 in pledges
actually received and accompanied by
payment of the 10 per cent initial in
This covers receipts up to last night,
but does not include millions of dollars
in figures on which the initial payment
has not been made or has been made
but not yet reported officially by banks.
The total tomorrow night is expected to
be several hundred million dollars
In order to raise six billions it would
be necessary to get a dally average of
$315,000,000, and at this required rate
approximately a billion dollars should
have been subscribed by this time.
In connection with the efforts to pre
vent slackening of campaign! morale
rt was cited today by Treasury offi
cials that practically all of the six bil
lion dollars to be raised will have been
spent by the time it is received at tho
Treasury. The Government already is
paying out money at the daily rate of
$50.000.000, . which Is substantially the
money to be raised in the fourth loan.
Nearly $4,500,000,000 has been re
ceived in the last two months from
sale of certificates of indebtedness, but
these securities are only temporary, ex
pedients to be paid out of receipts from
liberty bonds. Consequently the Gov
ernment is already spending its fourth
liberty loan money.

Past Season Declared Driest in His
tory of Local Bureau.
Rain yesterday brought relief to
Portland's water situation, which had
been critical for the past few weeks,
according to Superintendent L. S. Kai
ser. The season Just past has been the
dryest in the history of the Water Bu
reau, he declares.
'ior the past -few weeks we have
been taking about 39.000,000 gallons of
water a day from Bull Run. leaving
only 5,000.000 gallons to go down the
river," ne said yesterday. "While we
have a reserve supply of more than a
hundred millions in the reservoirs, a
big fire or warm spell would have en
dangered the water supply at any time

Mishap Is Attributed to Wet Condi
tion of Streets.
An automobile owned by Robert W.
Schmeer. vice-president of the United
States National Bank, was struck yes
terday by a car driven by Dr. G. M.
Sewall, at Broadway - and Larabee
street. Mr. ' Schmeer's car was driven
by Miss Elsie Shockley. 209 East Sixth
Street. North.' No one was injured. The
accident was attributed to wet streets.
Mrs. T. L. Chamberlain, 160 East
Thirteenth street, reported to tho police
yesterday that she was knocked down
at Broadway and Washington street by
an automobile several days ago. The
driver of the car had not reported the
accident as required by city ordinance.
A Word of Precaution.
TUST wherein lies the reason for tho use of vegetable preparations for infants
J and children ?
Why are any but vegetable preparations unsafe for infants and children ?
Why are Syrups, Cordials and Drops condemned by all Physicians and
most laymen ?
Why has the Government placed a ban on all . preparations containing, among
other poisonous drugs, Opium in its variously prepared forms and pleasing tastes,
and under its innumerable names?
These are questions that every Mother will do well to inquire about.
Any Physician will recommend the keeping of Fletcher's Castoria in the
house for the common ailments of infants and children.

WASHINGTON. Oct S. Sign .are
multiplying in reports reaching the
State Department from various agencies
n neutral European countries of the
rapid weakening of the despotic control
which the military elements in Ger
many and Austria have imposed upon
the civilian population.
American officials are becoming con
vinced that the imperial rulers have
been forced, however reluctantly, to the
oonviction that if they are to preserve
their dynasties from destruction they
must yield to the growing demands of
the civilian elements for the right of
participation in the government dur
ing their crisis.
It was pointed out today that Presi
dent Wilson has repeatedly declared
that with the military rulers of the cen
tral powers ronvicted of broken faith
and deceit, there can be no discussion
of the peace for which the Germanic
people apparently are clamoring.
Peace Motive Discerned.
Hence the belated attempts of the
Emperors to erect a structure of real
democratic government through the
parliaments In the hope that with these
the entente statesmen will be willing to
comer aoout peace.

Socialists Seek Control.
But the Socialists have generally de
clined to accept anything short of ab
solute control of the Cabinet through
the Reichstag without reference to the
wishes of the Emperor, and officials
believe that at length they are about
to realize their aspirations.
Such a change in Germany doubtless
vrould be followed, if not indeed pre

it is fully expected that as soon as real
representative government is a fact

Hegeman & Co., of New York City N. Y., say : "We can say for your

That is conclusive evidence that it is satisfactory to the users."
W. H. Chapman, of Montreal, Que., says : "I have sold Fletcher's Cas

its virtues. I look upon your preparation as one of the few so called

It was suggested that ' Emperor

Those officials who sea a nosslbllltv

of Austria suggested that Count Tisxa
had been summoned to meet his com

situation would be laid before him in
all its hopelessness in an effort to con
