Protective Official Deplores
Cruelty by Bandits.
Stern American Policy Held Xeed
to Protect Rights of Citizens,
and Change Conditions.
John G. MacConnell, field secretary
cf the national association for the
Protection of American Rights In
Mexico, is in Portland this week In
the interest of the movement to bring
about a more thorough understanding
of conditions existing in the southern
republic. The organization which Mr.
MacConnell represents was formed to
assist the United States government
remove the causes of friction between
this country and Mexico, and to keep
Jn constant touch with Mexican af
fairs on all matters affecting Amer
ican rights and property. To this
end, it stands prepared at all times,
Mr. MacConnell says, to prosecute
cuch legitimate steps as may be neces
ary. Concerted Action Wanted.
"Only through concerted action."
Bald Mr. McConnell, "will a condition
of stability and responsibility in Mex
ico be brought about and result in
recognition and protection of Amer
ican rights. The success of our asso
ciation is largely dependent on the
character and extent of ita member
ship, which is now nationwide In
scope and made up of corporations,
associations and individuals Inter
ested in the objects and purposes.
Among those on the Pacific coast are
Included practically every bank and
banker in Los Angeles and San Fran
cisco, the Los Angeles chamber of
commerce, the Oakland chamber of
commerce and other public bodies, as
well as a great number of prominent
men interested in seeing justice done
to Americans who have gone to Mex
ico in good faith, obeyed the laws and
find themselves now, after years of
hard work and self-denial, forced to
flee the country, oftentimes under the
protection of French, British or other
foreign passports.
Americans Are Victims.
"It cannot be denied that the Car
ranza government has broken dovn,
and that at present it controls only
a limited area along two of the main
railway lines. The country is at the
mercy of bandits and Indians, who
pillage and burn and rob all of the
people, but they seem to seek out
what few Americans remain and make
them victims.
"We have story after story of
atrocities inflicted upon American
citizens, many of them, owing to the
horrible and revolting nature, cannot
be revealed in print; American women
have suffered tortures worse than
death. Thousands of Mexicans have
starved to death in Mexico City itself
In the past two years, notwithstand
ing denials. This fact has been sub
stantiated by our people, though de
nied by Carranza agents here and in
Mexico. The testimony before the sub
committee of the foreign relations
committee of the United States sen
ate will bring to light all of the true
conditions prevailing under the Car
ranza regime and the American peo
ple will have a chance to judge for
themselves as to the treatment ac
corded their citizens in that country.
Stern Policy Advocated.
"We are very properly concerned
with the suffering of people in Rus
sia and the Balkans, but we should
not be permitted to forget that our
own citizens living in any foreign
country are entitled to the respect
and protection of that government
under which they are temporarily re
siding. The United States govern
ment guarantees such safety to all
nations in this country, and our asso
ciation asks that the government of
the United States shall adopt a stern
policy toward Mexico which will re
sult in giving to Americans who live
In that country proper protection, but
which will at the same time De or
the greatest possible benefit to the
people of that unhappy country.
"Legal"' Seizure Likely.
"The following translation of ar
ticle 27 of the new constitution of
Mexico shows very clearly that , the
Carranza government will confiscate
property of our people under the
guise of legal procedure if she dares
to do so:
" "(a) No foreign corporation or in
dividual can legally acquire or hold
any mines, oil wells, land or other
real property in Mexico unless he re
nounces his citizenship.
"'(b) No corporation, either domes
tic or foreign, can own agricultural,
grazing or other rural lands in Mex
ico, and if title to such property is
already vested in a corporation pro
vision is made for its acquisition by
the respective state governments in
exchange for state bonds.
"'(c) No corporation owning a
mine, oil well, factory or other indus
trial enterprise can hold or acquire
land in excess of its actual immediate
requirements, the area to be deter
mined by the federal or state execu
tive. Koretarm Ownership Hit.
"'(d) No foreign corporation or In-,
dividual can, under any condition,
hold er acquire ownership to lands or
waters within 60 miles of its fron
tiers of 30 miles from the seacoast.
-. '(e) The ownership to all minerals,
.solid, liquid or gaseous, is declared to
he vested in the nation, regardless of
existing rights based upon the old
"'(f)- All contracts relating to the
acquisition of natural resources made
since the year 1876 are subject to re
vision by the present government and
'the executive is authorized to declare
them null and void.' "

The picture portrays tremendous so
cial evils in a frank and wholesome
manner which clearly shows the pen
alties of misconduct. The stellar roles
are played by Richard Bennett, lead
ing man in "Damaged Goods," who is
Dr. Bell, and Claire Adams as Mary
Lee. The scenes were made with care
ful attention to detail and the photog
raphy on the whole is excellent.
Into the main subject of the terri
ble consequences of social wrong
doing are woven supplementary stor
ies graphically picturing the age-old
problem in the lives of young men and
women in various strata of society.
There is the girl whose mother would
not tell her the great secrets of wom
anhood, and who later falls Into the
trap of a rich and unprincipled para
site. There is the reckless debutante
of the smart set whose affair with a
worthless rounder of her own class
ends in suicide. There Is the ignorant
girl of the New York "sweatshops"
who craves excitement, and the little
housemaid who listens to the tempting
lies of a chauffeur. These unfortu
nate cases are contrasted with the
beautiful friendship of Mary Lee, the
young trained nurse, and Dr. Philip
Bell, who reach the end of the road of
true happiness. The whole subject is
treated In a human way that makes a
direct appeal to everyone.
The picture has the hearty indorse
ment of the Oregon Hygiene society
and will continue at the Heilig for
two days more, showings being con

ers for reduction in rates on
sash and doors to Atlantic sea
board points. Six witnesses were
Introduced by the petitioners,' three
traffic men and three manufacturers.
Prior to the increases in rates of
which the manufacturers complain
the rate to New York from Pacific
coast points was 75 cents per 100
pounds, which was increased to $1.11.
There is no transcontinental rate and
the charge is based upon a combina
tion of the Chicago tariff with the
local rates east of that point. It
was brought out that whereas the
r-te to Toronto and Montreal, Canada,
is 81 cents, the rate to points in the
New Kngland states through which
traffic passes en route is the same
as the New York rate.

With Intensive Courses on
Drill, Paper Work.
Officers of the national guard of
Oregon will assemble In Portland Oc
tober 3, 4 and 5 to participate In a
school in charge of Colonel cTe. Dent
ler, regular army, who was detailed
here by the war department some
time ago to be in charge of instruc
tion of the national guard forces in
the state.
About 35 officers are expected and
the course will be an intensive one,
with the basic purpose being the uni
fication of drill and paper work
throughout the entire organization.
Colonel Dentler will be aided by
Colonel Creed C. Hammond, who takes
charge of the Third Oregon as its
colonel October 1, and will thus be in
charge of the organization at the time
the school is held; Major J. Francis
Drake. Lieutenant D. D. Hale, battal
ion adjutant: Captain Connor and
Captain E. J. Elvers.
The worw will open each morning at
9 o'clock and will continue throughout
the day, with lectures in the evening
until 9:30 or 10 o'clock. Uniformity
of drill and of methods of handling
men will be taught during the day,
and the evening lectures will be de
voted to the paper work devolving
upon the officers.
The forthcoming winter season
promises to be on of the busiest
which the national guard of Oregon
has experienced in peace times, as the
officers in charge have plans for
building up a crac korganization. The
officers' school will act as the start
ing point of the winter work. All
drills, classes and lectures in connec
tion with the officers' school will be
held at the armory.
Equipment for an organization of
2000 men is on the way to Oregon
from the government arsenal at Benl
cla, Cal., it was announced last night.
The invoices have been received and
the goods are expected to be here be
fore the end o fthis month, and to be
unloaded in time for the school. A
complete line of the latest infantry
equipment is included in the ship
ment. With this supply of army equipment
assured, the officers of the Third Ore
gon are planning to build that organ
ization into a guard force equal if not
better than any organization in the
past. After the infantry force has be
come thoroughly organized a company
of engineers will be formed and Bat
tery A, field artillery, will be again
organized. One troop of cavalry is
also authorized for this state, and this
body will probably be formed in Pen
dleton within a short time.

McGrew, it is said, refused to apol
ogize, but as he had no dogs among
the winners no action could be taken
at this time, according to E. A. Par
sons, secretary of the International
Association of Field Trial clubs. Sec
retary Parsons said that un
less McGrew apologizes he will be
permanently barred from further par

an unsportsmanlike manner toward
Dr. John G. Gill of Lebanon and Sec
retary Parsons.
Considerable dissatisfaction was ex

WASHINGTON', Hept. 25. (Special
cable.) The house foreign affairs
committee may investigate the re
ported landing of marines near Kiume.
A meeting has been called for to
day to consider a resolution offered
by Representative Husted of New
York, who wants the house to go on
record in protest against interference.
"This is a glaring case of officious
intermeddling and is absolutely op
posed to our well settled national
policy." declared Mr. Husted.
He said it was a concrete illustra
tion "of the kind of trouble we would
be involved in as a nation if we joined
the league of nations under the un
amended provision of the covenent,
and that It would not be many years,
ir we interfered in situations of this
kind, before we would have the un
friendly feeling of all the nations of
the earth which have been friendly to
us in the past."
His resolution provides that "It Is
the sense of tTie house of representa
tives that the United States should not
participate in any military or naval
opinions against the Italian forces un
der the command of Gabriel d'An
nunzio now investing the city of
Flume, and that it should not attempt
to Influence the action of paid forces
or of their commander by show or
threat or force or otherwise."

LONDON. Sept. 25. (Special Cable.)
Unless the American congress is se

of having "shirt sleeve" diplomats for

steps to increase salaries in the dlplo

under-secretaries and vice-consuls

"Well, here's winter comin' on again and a
sure 'nuf f coal shortage in sight. Seems like
folks will never wake up an' lay their supply
in when they should in the summertime, I
mean. That's the time to buy coal anyhow.
Prices are way down then and mine bunkers
are chuck full.
"But, nope! People don't buy that way!
They just naturally wait until the cold begins
to nip 'em hard and then they make a wild
scramble to beat the other fellow. Coal starts
getting scarce then and a lot of folks have to
suffer women and kiddies mostly. Us miners
work like the dickens early in the summer to
fill the storage up. And when that's done we
generally has to lay off until we get some
more room. It's winter then and everybody
is yelling 'hustle-up' at us. Ain't it funny
though how people act? Believe me, the wise
bird gets his'n when the gettin's good! An'

had been having
"four o'clock headache" that dull
nagging that'ereeps in behind youx eyca
toward the end of the day's work and
sends yon borne nervous and cross. At
first I blamed it on the heavy loach
eons, and cut down to crackers and
milk, with no result. I cut oat smok
ing. But still my enemy came gnaw,
ing at my temples every afternoon.
One morning I came down resolved
to go to an optician. But oddly enoogh,
that afternoon I had no headache so I
put it off. Again the next day I found
myself, when S o'clock came, still
clear-headed and wondering what bad
Just as I started for borne, Thomas,
the office manager, came in and said
"How do yon like our new lights?"
"What new lights?" I asked, "I
hadn't noticed them.
I don't wonder yoa hadn't," ha
said, "we call them the disappearing
fixtures because you hardly know where
the light is coming from. Look!" and
he pointed overhead.
I looked up and saw that the glar
ing light under which I had been
working for months bad become so
soft that I could look directly at it
without blinking. And yet the whole
office was as bright as morning sunlight.
As Thomas ex

That night
when I got home
and went into the
dining room, every lamp in the chan
delier seemed to hit at roe right in the
eye. I met my wife with the remark.
"I'm going to have these lighting fix
tures changed."
wSo, you're not," said she promptly.
"Not now, we've got to have these
rooms re papered in the Spring anyway.
and I'm not going to have them torn
up twice." I explained that the lights
I wanted could be put up in a few
minutes. I told her about the silk and
cretonne shades which could be selected
to match her curtains. And when she
called up the electrician and he tuld
the price, she ordered them.

Duplexalite makes it look so much
brighter and cosier an J doesn't it
bring out the tones of the furniture and
rugs beautifully?
Duplexalite is the greatest advance
in lighting since tb invention of the
Mazda lamp. It is a patented device giv
ing a unique combination of direct and
indirect lighting, with the merits of
both and the faults of neither. A j-irved
metal deflector so distributes the light
that it spreads t- all parts of the room
in a mellow radiance, without glare and
without heavy shadows in dark corners.
Through a flat glass diffusing disc in
creased intensity is radiated below. For
the first time it is possible to use in the
home the new Mazda C, the mt effi
cient and economical lamp ever known.
Silk, cretonne, or parchment shades
in a variety of deigns and colors make
Duplexalite an effective decoration for
any room.
