Army Intelligence service men n3
city detectives on the witness stand
yesterday told of utterances alleged to
have been made by Dr. Marie Equi, on
trial before Federal Judge Bean for
violation of the espionage act. The
charges date as far back as September,
1917. The Government has an array ot
witnesses, each in turn to tell of some
saying of the defendant, in the effort
to show that Dr. Equi violated the es
pionage act.
Sergeant Sutton C. Linville gave an
account of I. W. W. activities in the
North End. He attended two of the
lectures given by Dr Equi in which,
he declared, she said that the I. W. W.
should strike for freedom when their
masters, the employing class, was
wtruggling with Germany'. The wit
ness, under cross-examination, ad
mitted I n it L us 11 it i j ft- ii ucurci wrv- i
James Brady, also of the military In
telligence bureau, testified regarding
utterances of Dr. Equi, as did Welling
ton Weilan. They gave an account of
Dr. Equi's remarks in June at two dif
ferent meetings.
City Detective Dan Kellaher testified
to a two-hour speech .that Dr. Equi
made in the Plaza in 1917, at which
time he declared she said she had
voted for Wilson because she thought
he wanted peace. The witness also
testified that Dr. Equi asserted that
an attempt was made to make her kiss
the American flag, "the dirty little
American flag." during the Prepared-iiess-day
Parade, but she refused, al
though the man who wanted her to kiss
it threatened to cram it down her
throat.
Both Detective Kellaher and Police
man Russell Butler testified that Dr.
Equi said a certain ex-soldier who was
arrested for distributing, literature in
1917 made the mistake of his life when
'he joined the Army.
Other things Dr. Equi was credited
with saying were that the bankers, who
were wise people, "are not buying lib
erty bonds, so why should you?" that
the workingmen had to go to war, but
that employers remained at home; that
the defendant said she was for the
war, but didn't know what it was
about.
The trial will be resumed at 10
o'clock this morning.

STATE OF OREGON.
Executive Department
SALEM
November 13, 1918.
To My Friends, the Girls and Boys of Oregon:
Do you realize that we have been going through the most won
derful week in the world's history? Our own joy and gratitude, can
only be exceeded by the joy and gratitude of the peoples of other
lands who have suffered more than we and whose treasure and prec
ious blood has been offered without stint or even complaint. We have
won our fight, and some of your brothers will not come back from
France.
All honor to our brave lads, and is there any price too big for us
at home to pay in return for their brave deeds and wonderful sacrifice?.
To be a Victory Boy or a Victory Girl means that you have agreed
to earn and to giv e to the United War Work Fund, which is being solic-
ited on behalf of the seven Allied War Work Agencies. Our President;
Woodrow Wilson, has asked that we make our contributions for caring
for our'boys in one combined drive. By giving now you share in every
possible care and comfort we are trying to bring to the soldiers.
I have just heard of three boys in La Grande who subscribed $5.00
each to be paid from their profits in selling newspapers. A little girl
in Portland has been shining shoes all week so that her earning may
help swell the fund. A 12-year-old boy did a rushing business in cow1
bells on the streets of Portland Monday during the great celebration;
and he has paid his pledge in full, amounting to $10.00.
Let our boys and girls of Oregon have a hand in this great service;
and as Governor of your state, I am depending on each and every one
of you to do your share. Sincerely yours,
Governor of Oregon.
