ICILIAT1 IS
STATE BOARD'S AIM
Services Offered in Existing
Labor Disputes.
FIVE CASES CONSIDERED
All Interests Represented by Trio
Named to Act on Commission
Created for Purpose.
With five cases of service already
of record, the state beard of concilia
tion, created by the last legislature,
stands ready to take up all existing
labor disputes in Portland, with the
exception of the open or closed
shop issue.
"We have repeatedly assured or
ganized labor," said W. F. Woodward,
chairman of the board, "that the serv
ices of the conciliation board are at
their disposal in the interests of
proper settlements of the difficulties
between employer and employes. To
the present we have not been invited
to take action in any of the existing
disputes."
Members of the state' board of con
ciliation ar-e W. F. AVoodward, J. F.
Flynn and Otto R. Hartwig, appoint
ed by the governor and representing
employer, employes and the general
public. By the provisions of the act
they are empowered to intervene in
any labor dispute upon call of an in
dustry of more than 50 employes, or
upon call of city or county officials
The act also provides that the board
shall first tender its services, and, if
this offer is not acted upon, shall
await the formal summons to serve.
Several Strikes' in Portland.
At present Portland is experiencing
several labor disorders the strike of
the laundry workers, the strike of the
jewelry workers, the tailors' strike,
the cereal workers' strike, with sym
pathetic partial strikes by the long
shoremen, the grain handlers and the
teamsters and auto truck drivers. A
controversy also exists in the com
mercial printing trad.
The state board of conciliation,
however, holds that it cannot sit in
decision on the question of the closed
or open shop and that its province is
exclusively that of wages, hours and
working conditions.
To date the board has acted in five
differ-ent disputes, and its members
have been insttlumental in bringing
about settlements in a majority of
instances, with definite progress to
ward eventual settlement in others.
"I was dubious of the part we had
to play," confessed Mr. Woodward
last night, "believing 'ht our efforts
would be nullified by the fact that we
are given no specifio rower to enforce
our findings. But we have since dis
covered that the force of public opin
ion, as creat.d b;- the publicity of the
investigation, is a stronger corrective
influence than any legal weapon that
could have been given us.'
THOSE WHO COME AND GO.
Though

airplanes are no longer Throat affliction among
novelties, our townspeople renewed ! clerks is held to be due to the fre-
interest in aeronautics somewhat
Hoard's AVorlt Detailed.
The first intervention of the board
was in the recent telephone strike.
While its findings were not accepted
in entirety, it is admitted that the
action of the board served to acceler
ate the final settlement of the dis
pute and the resumption of normal
service.
The second service was as an arbi
tration body for the grain handlers
and dock operators of Portland and
Puget sound, where employes and
employers were brought together and
the wage scale adjusted. The decision
of the board was accepted and has '
been in force for two months.
Acting in the controversy between
the paving companies and the engi
neers and motor-truck drivers, the
board was unable to make progress,
owing to the fact that the employers
would make no concessions and de
clined to treat with the employes.
The fourth intervention was occa
sioned by the controversy between
two mills at Bend and their employes,
at the request of the latter. Two
hearings were held in Portland, after
which Mr. Hartwig and Mr. Flynn
made a personal visit of investigation
to the mills. No decision has yet
been made because of the fact that
such decision would affect the entire
pine industry of Eastern Oregon and
Idaho.
Bend Case Pending.
Pending such decision as seems
-equitable, Sir. Flynn is in Eastern
Oregon and Idaho, studying the situ
ation. There is every prospect that
the findings and recommendations of
the board will be accepted.
In the fifth instance the board was
called to the port of Astoria, relative
to an inquiry of the demands of
skilled and unskilled labor. An un- j
derstanding has been reached that
both parties to the dispute will sub
mit their complete claims and argu
ments at a conference to be held in
tv near future.
rln every instance where its services
have been invoked, the board has
made the specific request that work
be resumed pending the official find
ings and recommendations 6f the
board. Thus far the work of the con
ciliation board has been carried on at
practically no expense to the state.
The act creating a state board of
conciliation was passed by the last
legislature. It provided for the ap
pointment of three commissioners,
one to be appointed from a list of
five names submitted by the state
federation of labor, one from a simi
lar list submitted by the employers'
association of Portland, and the third
to be chosen by these two commis
sioners after their appointment by the
governor.
Powers of Board Broad.
Power is given to the conciliation
board to administer oaths, subpena
witnesses, to conduct their sessions
with proper order and due respect,
and to require the production of all
books, records and documents neces
sary for an analysis of the particular
labor difficulty under investigation.
A corporation or industry, for ex
ample, involved in labor trouble,
could De requirea to suDmit Its ac
counts, in order that the board of
Conciliation might arrive at an un
derstanding of its finances, and its
ability to meet or not to meet a de
mand for wage increase, should such
demand be justified.
The act further provides that
""Whenever it shall come to the
knowledge of the board that a strike
or lockout is seriously threatened in
the state, involving an employer and
his employes, if he is employing not
les than 50 persons, the board shall
immeaiately put itself in communica
tion with such employer and em
ployes and ascertain the cause of
such difference, strike or lockout,
and endeavor to persuade such em
ployer and employes to adjust the
same."
If this initial step fails to har
monize the conflicting parties, the
board may then, at the request of
either party, or at the request of the
city or county officials, institute its
own inquiry of the dispute, at public
hearings. Witnesses may be sub
penaed, books requisitioned, and all
steps taken to make an intensive
probe the controversy. Upon the
bunday afternoon, when a birdman
drove his droning machine hither and
thither above the central city, so low
that the rush of his flight stirred the
frazzled flags that some of the office
buildings hoisted along about the
time of the armistice. The day was
ideal for the other fellow to fly, and
the clement Eunday sunshine caught
the wings of the big plane in brilliant
flashes, as though heliographing the
fact that machine and pilot were hav
ing an enjoyable outing. Milton R.
Klepper, who won his spurs as a real
"bird" in the flight from Portland to
Sacramento, and who is president of
the Oregon Aero club, said that the
aviator evidently knew his business,
though a miscalculation might wreck
a smokestack.
At the Hotel Portland a full suite
of guest rooms had been prepared for
the reception of W. G. McAdoo and
party Sunday morning. The gen
eral public may have them now, for
the ex-secretary of th treasury and
former "dictator-general" of rail
roads sped to San Francisco via Salt
Lake. Mr. McAdoo, who rode a dozen
fractious jobs himself, while the four
ring circus of war was showing, is
said to have taken a delighted inter
est in the feats of western buckaroos
at the Pendleton performance of the
"last west." Among those who were
not entertained in Portland, owing to
the change in plan, were Mr. and Mrs.
McAdoo, Lily McAdoo, Robert McAdoo,
LMr. Veman and Miss V-eman, S. C.
Gibbernay and K. B. Conger. Come
again, Mac.
Private Rex H. Lampman, late of
the 6th marines and the Stars and
Stripes staff, of the Rhine and the
Seine, returned to Portland Sun
day after a month's visit with his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Larrrpman
of Central Point. Private Lampman,
who is awaiting discharge before he
returns to newspaper work in the
middle west, believes that the day of
his deliverance is near at hand. "They
have notified me that my pay is
stopped," he said, "and I take it that
the discharge papers will come flut
tering along in a few days. Mean
time, I am officially in the service,
though most regretably missing from
the pay roll."
Mr. and Mrs. Richard W. Childs
left Sunday for Boise, Idaho, where
they will foregather with old friends
at the state fair. Mr. Childs is man
ager of the Hotel Portland, but ere
he came to Oregon he was secretary
of the Boise Commercial club. A
natural interest in the Idaho state
fair revives, when "Dick" recalls the
days of his civic stewardship. "Prize
pumpkins htve always intrigued my
interest," said Mr. Childs, in parting.
"One meets so many of the human
variety, that It is a distinct relief to
have a genuine, old-fashioned chat
with the king of the garden."
With the large inclusiveness of his
own acres on the eastern Oregon
plains, "Bill" Hanley registers at the
Multnomah, in firm pen strokes,
"Bill Hanley, Oregon." About once
in every so often, "Bill" comes to
Portland to get the latest political
gossip and renew his personal polish.
It was the Hanley ranch, near Burns,
which Anne Shannon Monroe featured
as the plot scene in her novel, "Happy
Valley." Miss Monroe may soon be
in Portland, as she came all the way
from Gotham where her literary la
bors are now enacted to witness the

Tom Nolan, who merchandises in

was sleuthing around local wholesale
houses yesterday with an eye intent
upon winter wares for his shelves

met his store manager, John' Ken

nedy's return from a vacation visit
to his parental home at Tacoma.
F. W. Sumner, owner of tha Sumner

quency and fervor with which mo-
have been compelled to bark "Front!"
during tire past few months. Esti
mating conservatively that four calls
are necessary to summon "Front"
from his own engrossing affairs, it is
calculated that the average Portland
greeter shouted the mystic mandate
exactly 48.257 times during the month
of August alone. Scarcely has Presi
dent Wilson left town, on his further
crusade for the league, when the last
available room is filled with the frol
ickers returning from the Round-up
at Pendleton. The tourist traffic re
mains also at high tide. All in all,
Portland's hostelries are writing
down the record of one of the busiest
seasons known to their clan.
When the Connecticut Tankee
reached King Arthur's court, thrown
back through to dizzy centuries, he
set about the reformation of the
realm not that, precisely, but the
modernization, rather. And one of
the first stunts he attempted was the
introduction of the toothbrush. Queen
Guinievere knew not the implement,
nor Launcelot. nor the Lady of Shal
ott. So the Yankee, as "Sir Boss,"
commissioned a proud knight to ride
forth as an equestrian commercial
traveler, his' surcoat blazoned with
the word, "prophylactic. How his
tory repeats herself. On the pages of
the Portland hotel register appears
the signature, "Phophylactic" Perte,
Florence. Mass. Mr. Perte's profes
sion is obvious.
F. S. Stanley, president of the Cen
tral Oregon Irrigation Co., is at the
Imperial for a few days, registering
from Deschutes. Who knows not the
Deschutes river has something com
ing to him in the way of piscatorial
pleasure. Famed for big, belligerent
trout, the canyon-pent river holds
one of the mysteries of fish lore a
dark, vivil trout, with bright mark
ings, locally known as "speck." Rain
bow, cut-throat, Dolly, red-side it is
none of these, say the anglers. And
they wrangle as they angle, over the
genesis of the "speck," awaiting the
dictum of some D. S. Jordan to de
termine the exact status of the flash
ing fellow that strikes so genuinely.
But for one fact, and one alone.

Cannon, aforetime- dictator and over
lord of the American house of repre
sentatives? It is, indeed. Frank
Lindley, of Danville, is at the Ben
son, after a fortnight's business visit
in Washington state. "I saw Uncle
Joe just a day or so before I started
west," said Mr. Lindley. "He was
looking cheerful and chipper as ever."
While the northwesterner yearns
for the palm groves and balmy
breezes of the south, along about the
time when Boreas blows a frosty
breath from the pole, dwellers in the
south find their summer season
equally irksome, and turn to ponder
ing on the green hills and cool spaces
of Oregon. So it is that the pages
of Portland hotels are often em
blazoned, with registrations like
these: Mr. and Mrs. Gerson Gold

D. Gross. This Californlan tourist

testimony adduced at this hearing,.
and the data submitted by both
parties, the board of conciliation shall
base its findings and recommendation
for settlement.
Arbitration Is Provided.
"If either or both of the parties,"
provides the act, "are not satisfied with
such findings and recommendations,
then either party may make written
application to the board to have such
controversy or difference submitted to
a board of arbitration. The applica
tion shall contain a concise state
ment of the grievances complained of,
and an agreement to abide by such
award as the board of arbitration may
make."
The board of arbitration, in the
event one is required, is to comprise
three members, one to be selected by
the employes, one by the employer, and
the third by the two previous mem
bers. The powers vested in the state
board of conciliation are vested equal
ly in the board of arbitration.

SEATTLE, Wash, Sept. 22. (Spe-
ial.) A week ago Mrs. David S.
Porter of 800 Thirty-second avenue
called upon the police to unravel one
the most mysterious cases the Se
attle police have ever had to deal
with.
A messenger had left at her home a
package half again as large as a shoe
ox, which when unwrapped revealed
everal smaller boxes, each havily
wrapped, until the last a pill box was
reached, and this it was feared might
contain a high explosive.
The lid was not removed by Mrs.
Porter, but was rewrapped and de
livered to the police. Officials of the
epartment. after investigating the
ircumstances, decided to follow Mrs.
Porter's lead and leave the little box
lone and conduct their investigation
from what slender evidence could be
ound in the wrappings.
The little box was taken to the
water front and there, gingerly han
led, thrown off a dock into the bay.
weighted with a rock. There wai
no explosion from water pressure
nd this point was one that was later
taken into consideration by the police
in their worn on the case. Through'
ut the past week four detectives
ave worked hours overtime each day
in an effort to ascertain the Identity
nd motives of the person who sent
the package to Mrs. Porter.
Woman YYlthoot Enemies.
Mrs. Porter made it clear to the
police that she had no enemies. She
was living with her brother pending
the conclusion of a suit for divorce
from her husband, she said, and she
declared that her husband was not a
man who would ever think of sending
er a bomb.
Late Saturday night Mr. Porter ap
peared at police headquarters and
said that he was aware of the pres
ence of detectives about his dwelling
on Denny way and had come to the
conclusion that he was suspected of
sending the bomb to Mrs. Porter,
having read of her receipt of one in
the papers last Monday. He assured
the police that he was in no way
connected with a bomb plot and de
lared his willingness to assist in
very way in apprehending the guilty
person. His conversation with detec-
tves developed that he had sent
package to Mrs. Porter a week ago.
but that it merely was a little me
mento of Mrs. Porter's and was not
wrapped as the package she received
was reported having beer..
'Come to think of it, however," Mr.
Porter continued, "I left the wrapping
to one of the clerks in the office and
told him to do it up well. What" did
you say the box looked like?"
All of the boxes were described min
utely. Mr. Porter telephoned to a
friend.
Mystery Is Solved.
"Gentlemen," Porter said on return-
lng from the telephone. I am very
sorry but I guess the little package
was mine, the one I sent."
He explained that it was a little
memento that his wife had treasured
greatly in that she had kept it guard
ed throughout the trials and tribu
lations of moving seven times dur
ing the time they were living to
gether. His explanation did not sat
isfy the curious detectives. They
pressed him as to the nature of the
package.
If you must know. Porter said.
it was my wife s appendix. It was
removed before our marriage and the
other day. I received a bill for 150 for
the operation. Inasmuch as we were
not united at the time the debt was
incurred and in view of the manner
in which the appendix was treasured
throughout our married life, I felt
that I had no right to keep it unpaid
for. So 1 sent It to Mrs. Porter."
The mystery surrounding the Porter
"bomb case being thus dispelled,
Porter was not detained.

Belgium Fears Invasion Cardinal

Possibility of Armed Clash.
BALTIMORE, Ml, Sept. 22. When
Cardinal Mercier was informed last
night at Cardinal Gibbons' residence
of the reported severance of diplo
matic relations between 'Belgium and
Holland he said:
"I knew there were differences, but
had -no reason to suppose a rupture
was imminent."
Belxlana Not Surprised.
Others in his party did not seem
surprised over the news.

the province of Limburg extending as
far north as the northernmost boun
dary line of Belgium and the domina

river, west of Antwerp, as an Insur
ance against Dutch blockades in time
of war. or against trade aggression in
time of peace.
"Germany is recuperating, cardinal
Mercier said, "and." put in M. Dessain.
"should she be allowed to reconstruct
her strength, Belgium may well ex
pect another Invasion unless we in
sure ourselves by fortifying the front

unable to do, because our guns would
be trained on neutral (Dutch) terri
tory. Belgium Bh'ould have put in a
stronger claim at the peace confer

sessions.
"Military history and wars have
taught us that rivers are the only de
pendable lines of defense. In this case
it is the Meuse that must be forti

viewpoint to the Dutch, but essential

Wmr Possibility ot Drnlrd.
'Should another Invasion be at
tempted under the present situation
the entire bulk of the Belgian army
would have to be concentrated in the
vicinity of Waterloo. This would eat
away our strength of fortification to
the south. If our concentration was
in the south the north would be i
doomed. If the army force was dis
tributed along the border it could not
withstand an attack.
