Show-Down Fight With City
Officials Is Expected.
Membership to Include to Per Cent

of Dismissal, Sajr Leaders.
In the face of strong- opposition on
the part of Mayor Baker and the city
commission, the Portland policemen
are quietly completing- plans for the
formation of a policemen's union, and
a show-down In the expected fight be
tween the police and the city adminis
tration Is expected to materialise
within the next week or 10 days.
A charter from the American Feder
ation of Labor has been granted the
policemen, according to announcement
which has been made by Otto Hartwtg.
president of the atate federation of
Officials of the new union announced
yesterday If It is the charter for which
they petitioned, they expect to com
plete their organisation and affiliate
with the Portland central labor council
at an early date.
City Fights 1'atoa Flaw.
The police, when they applied for a
charter from the American Federation
of Labor several months ago, asked
that they receive a non-strikinr and
non-assessable charier. They have not
yet learned if this has been done by
the national labor officials.
The city officials some time ago no
tified the police that in the event they
attempt to organise a policemen'a
union, those taking part would be dis
missed from the city service. Mayor
Baker and the commissioners were em
phatic In their opposition to tbe pro
posed onion.
Officials of the policemen's organisa
tion said yesterday that 90 per cent of
the men on the police force have Joined
the new organisation and are ready to
unionise If the charter Is found to be
satisfactory. It was said yesterday
that as soon as official notice is re
ceived from the American Federation
of Labor, a meeting will be called at
which time final action will be taken
by the blue-coats.
Strike Ctaase O Ittr.
A provision of the civil service rules
states that all employes wno are ai
charred by the mayor cannot again
obtain employment In civil service posts.
which would mean that II tne ponce
men should quit because of some dif
ference existing between the city ad
ministration and their union, they could
not return to their jobs once they de
cided to walk out.
The police said yesterday that at
though there Is a provision which pro
hibita them from going out on a strike,
there Is nothing to prevent any or all
members of the force from quitting
their Jobs. Nor Is there anything which
might prevent them from threatening
to quit during an argument between
the proposed union and the city.
Mayor Baker will be out of the city
for the present week, and no official
statement could be had from him yes
terday with reference to the next atep
which might be taken if the police
persist In thetr present attitude and
orranJse their union In spite 01 tne 01-

Bill for Construction of Railways In

after tbe Indians have received thetr
allotments. Tbe bill made no progress.
however, because the Indian office Is
opposed to having such legislation un
til It has been possible to dispose or the
valuable timber on the reservation.
Allotments are being made rapidly
and in the course of time will be com
pleted, but the Indian office hopes to
hold up action by congress until the
timber Is sold because it is contended
that the welfare of the Indians is best
served by permitting the disposal of
this timber by Uncle Sam as guardian
for the red men.
Letters have reached members of con
gress from the Klamath country urging
congress to act In order to remove the
principal barrier to railroad develop

the opening.

the amount produced in Germany and
Germany's normal needs, amounts to
J. 600.000 tons of wheat, 1,000,000 tons of
meat and 1.000.000 tons of fats, says
tbe imperial food ministry.

unthinkable, the ministry asserts. Only
long-term credits can help and the ac

If Germany works, for only then can
the creditors have confidence in the

Immediate decisive effect of the re

He took for his text Chron. 1:29-30,
"And the times that went over them."
Mr. Belden said in part:
"The historian in the book of Chron
icles is summing up the life of King
David. We are surprised to think he
did it in so few words. In this epitome
of the king's life we have the phrase
we have chosen for our text. By these
words he meant the experiences or
periods of life in which the king passed.
it Is In this life that 1 shall talk about
David tonight-
"First, there was the time of his I
innocency and youth. It began at his
birth and ended the day Samuel looked
Into the face of the shepherd boy and
found he was goodly to look upon,
tivery Ills has such a period. God be
gins every generation with innocent
children. There may be bad tendencies
but there are not bad deeds. In this
period we have the opportunity of the
Sunday school, the kindergarten and
every influence that would benefit so
ciety. It is care-free and laughter
flows like the running stream.
'Second, we have the time of David's
coming to his kingdom. What a time
that is with us all. Coming to the
time we are to, coming to the time
we are to fill in life. If angels watch
over us, how anxious they must be
now. Are there any forces which help
us here? Yes, In David's case I would
mention three. There was the influ
ence of Samuel, the prophet who stood
over the boy with his horn of oil and
id to David, 'You are God's man.'
We was the man that put the new
visions and aspirations into the life
of the shepherd lad.
"Then there was the Influence of his
great friend Jonathan. Without Jona
than David could not have been. Jona
than was the man who put his love for
David before his own ambition. It was
his soul that was knit to David's soul.
It was his friendship that kept the
torch of David's hope burning, in the
dark hours. Blessed is the man that
has Jonathan for a friend.
"Then there were the providences
of God which surrounded David s life.
Some of them were dark and some of
them were light, but from first to last
they led David from the cave of Adul
lam to the throne of Israel. God's
providences are always the friends of
any life that would follow him. They
directed from the time that Samuel
said 'Thou are the man,' until the time
the people said, 'God save the king.
The third period of David's life was
his coming to the kingdom. This is the
great period in every life. But I want
to call your- attention to two or three
facts. The first we wish we did not
have to mention, but God mentioned
and we must. That is David's sin
What a word it is. It has the hiss
of the serpent, the sting of the adder,
the tears of sorrow and the heartbreak
of the lost. David knew all these too
well, for he found his light turned to
darkness and he cried in prayer.
Against thee and thee only have I
'Thank God he found forgiveness.
There was a 51st Psalm in his life and
not only his own soul went up to God
on the wings of this psalm but many a
penitent since has poured out his
heart's anguish in David's words. The
answer came back to David from God
himself saying, 'I have put away thy
There was more than sin In David's

he has Influenced the world more than
any other king who ever sat on
throne. Tell me a king whose writings
have been read as King David's. The
poetry of them surpasses the poetry
of Milton, Wordsworth, Dante, Shakes
peare or Browning. I would rather be
the author of the 23d Psalm than of
any of the poems found outside the
Bible. David was Israel's great poet.
"Then there was the glory of his
reign, so rich, a vision so large that
it reached down through the ages and
could only be realized in his greater

to understand the fulness and place
of Christ in tbe world he said, 'He

Rev. Harold W. Griffis Discusses
Beattitudes Spoken by Christ.
At the First Christian church the
Rev. Harold H. Griffis discussed the
practical bearings of the second Beati
tude, pointing out the special meaning
of the verse in the life of the Christian.
"The Joys of Sorrow" was the subject.
"Many people," said the speaker,
"have a wrong conception of the- Beati
tudes., They regard these utterances
of the Savior as arbitrary and as hav
ing authority only because they were
spoken by the Christ. But a little re
flection toon proves the error of this
idea. These Beatitudes are true not
simply because Jesus spoke them, but-
Jesus spoke them because they were
"That is to say, these utterances of
the Christ are great fundamental prin.
ciples of human living and as such find
f.heir exemplification.
"The Joys of sorrow are of three
kinds. First, those that attend the per.
sonal benefit of the endurance of sor
row. Suffering is not punitive but re
demptive. It comes not as a punish
ment but as an education. There are
some lessons in life that can be learned
only in the school of suffering; there
are some virtues that can be formed
only In the fire.
"The second kind of Joy issuing from
sorrow comes to us because our sor
row enables us to enter Into and to
help bear the afflictions of others. Sor
row not only makes us strong but also
ordains us to a strength-giving minis
try. "The third kind of joy resulting from
our sorrow is that which Is related to
a fuller knowledge of our God. We
know God best when we know him as
the Comforter when we know him as
the strength-giver. We never see him
so clearly or understand him so well
as when he reveals himself to us in the
hour of adversity."

The value of having Christian com

'True Christianity Only Cure for
111," Says Rev. Mr. Stansfield.
In his sermon at the First Methodist
church Sunday morning on "Construc
tive Forces In Christianity," Dr. Stans
field took as his text II Peter 1:7, "Add
to your faith virtue, to virtue knowl
edge, to knowledge temperance, to tem
perance brotherly kindness, to brother
ly kindness charity or love." He said:
After the devastating world war we
are now supposed to be in a period of
reconstruction, but it is evident to any
thoughtful and observant person, that
the most destructive forces and pas
sions of human life are flagrantly at
"Profiteering and greed by individu
als and groups and organizations of
both capital and labor in industry and
commerce, and national and Interna
tional affairs, is rampant. Our age
seems intoxicated with power and
greed and the only thing that can pos
sibly save the world today is an in
flux of genuine Christianity the true
Christian spirit and life.
"True Christianity is thoroughly and
constantly constructive to noble, manly
character and life In the individual, in
society and In the nation.
"Christianity is more than a system of
doctrine; it is pre-eminently a life of a
certain character and spirit and man.
ner. Further, by its ideals and stand
ards and imperatives for personal char
acter and conduct, it is the highest and
Deft constructive force in and for man
kind. It is primarily a life of faith.
Faith is that miphty and fine sense of
power in man which sees tho Invisible
and senses the eternal and the rel of
life. Faith sees honor. Justice, truth,
love. God, immortalty.
"Faith senses and appreciates the
highest and deepest and best of life,
and is a mighty dynamic to character
and conduct. The world today, even the
so-called best part of It the allied
nations Is intoxicated with lust of
power and greed. America today is
jeopardized and threatened from or
ganized classes and groups with a far
worse autocracy and tyranny than she
has ever yet known. What alone can
save the so-called freest and strongest
peoples of the world today is the char
acter-changing and constructive forces
of Christianity.
"Never was there a time when it
was so urgent and imperative for
every christian man and woman to be
outstandingly, effectively and help
fully christian as today. "Add to your
faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to
knowledge temperance, to temperance
brotherly kindness, and to brotherly
kindness, love, and ye shall neither be
barren nor unfruitful In the knowledge
of Jesus Christ'."
Rev. John Rice Discourses on Iden
tification of Christians.
Rev. John Rice of the inter-church
world movement spoke yesterday morn
ing at St. Philipps Episcopal church
on Russell street. Until recently he
was general missionary for this Epis
copal diocese, but was appointed early
this month as field secretary or tne
new organization.
"What is it that really identifies a
man?' asked Rev. Mr. moe. "in some
circumstances it might be the laundry
mark on his collar or the name sewed
in his coat. I There are also identifica
tions of wealth, political influence and
social positions.
Such marks of identification we find
are not the greatest when it comes to
testing Christian character. If a pro
fessor of Christianity complies with the
tests he will be identified with those
worthy of trust and confidence. Such
person Is an apostle of clean living,
righteousness and a valuable asset to
a community.
'Christian character should assert
itself. The influence of such persons
is neeeded mightily. There are great
issues in which moral and economic
factors mingle. Here strong opinions,
grounded on a certainty of their right
eousness, are essential. Strong princi
ples are wanted, but they must be un
selfish principles."
