Lieutenant Neubig said that the

miles south of Eugene, was reached,
when they encountered a ha.rd.. rain
storm and considerable wind, and rain
fell continually until landed In Eu

lieutenant said the wind slightly af

the ships ascended to a height of 10,000
feet. Lieutenant Neubig declaring that
ho had never before encountered such
cold air as he did while coming over
the divide into Oregon. The planes
soared along close to Mount Shasta,
which presented a beautiful sight from
their altitude, say the aviators. Like
Lieutenant A. F. Hoagland. who made
the flight between Mather Field to Se
attle early last winter, they say they
had , to maneuver their machines to
some extent to dodge the highest peaks
In the Siskiyous.

BREAK WITH WILSON WIDER
Bitter Struggle Made to Suppress
Pact, But Borah Ends Fight by
Starting to Read Document.
. WASHINGTON. June 9. Out of a
whirlwind of developments the senate
today got a copy of the peace treaty,
and, after a five-hour fight, ordered it
printed in the public record.
At the same time it got under way
the investigation of how copies have
reached private hands in New Tork by
summoning to testify a half dozen of
the country's leading financiers.
The copy which went into the record
was brought to this country by a news
paper man and was presented by Sen
ator Borah, republican, of Idaho, just
after the reading of a cablegram from
President Wilson saying he could not

The effect of today's history-making
developments was to clear the air on
the much-debated subject of of pub
licity for the treaty text, to widen the
breach between the president and the
senate majority, and to forecast a sen
sational turn for the inquiry into the
manner in which copies of the docu
ment have become available to unau
Starting its investigation with an un
expected vigor, the foreign relations
committee, within a half hour after it
convened, voted to call before it J. P.
Morgan, II. P. Davison and Thomas F.
Lamont, all of the Morgan banking
firm; Jacob Schiff of Kuhn, Loeb & Co..
and PauT Warburton,' formerly cen

of the National City bank. It then ex

of state, about the official copies in the
state department's vaults.

Statements also were .made to the
committee by Senator Lodge, republi
can, of Massachusetts, and Senator
Borah, similar to their declarations in
the senate, that they knew of copies
in New York, but could not divulge the
names of their informants.
When the senate met it listened in
silence to President Wilson's cable

a refusal to comply with the request
for the treaty text embodied In a reso

The issue may be far advanced as the

last night at the Multnomah between
representatives of the Pacific coast ad

cinching the next meet, a matter which
will be determined by a vote at the
closing session Wednesday night.
The ad men tilted their cigars ceiling

There were talks by laymen, whose
knowledge of advertising is that of the

raised the art to the nth power and

of the continent.
In a spirited, rapid-fire contest at
