by the Portland Central Labor coun
cil Thursday night when a resolution
protesting police interference was
adopted by unanimous vote.
"Their conduct is most emphatically
condemned as h. manner of conduct
which must result in a state of unrest
and bitter feeling among the workers
of this city," reads the resolution.
The adoption of the resolution was
preceded by fiery oratory, during
which Joseph Laundy, a delegate to
the labor council and temporary sec
retary of the council of soldiers, sail
ors and working-men, declared that
William Bryon, chief of the depart
ment of justice operatives in Oregon,
should be taken out and hanged.
Abuse by Bryon Charged.
Laundy's startling pronouncement
followed a talk by Floyd Hyde, a
Portland radical, who told the labor
council ho had been "shamefully
abused and cursed" by Mr. Bryon
after he had been arrested at tne
Plaza block Tuesday night.

"If anybody should have a rope tied
around his neck and strung to the

ought to get it," shouted Laundy.

MINING TOWN HAS GHOST
'Woman In White" Is Spirit of In

GREENSBURG. Pal Residents of
Carbon, a mining village a mile south
west of here, are greatly exercised
over the weird flitting about late at

ghost clad in a snow-white gown.
This ghost, it is said, has -on three
different occasions between midnight
and 1 o'clock aroused ePter Oleson, a
Norwegian miner, who lives alone in
a small house, with its strange rap

those of Poe's raven. Oreson arose
promptly on each occasion, and when
he opened his front door the figure of
what he believed was a young woman
in a white robe stood on his step.
"What do you want?" Oleson de
clares he told the strange figure, but
he failed to get any answer and when
he would attempt to lay hands on it
the ghost would give a shrill cry and
disappear. On three succeeding nights
the hobgoblin appeared at the Oleson
home, and three times did the snow
white figure refuse the Norwegian's
invitation to come into his house and
to give him an account of its mys

AMERICAN GAINS FREEDOM
Ex-Prisoner of Germans Returns
to New York Home.
NEW YORK. Earend Solberski. a
former New Yorker employed by Wil
son & Co., and who was captured by
the Germans and forced to shovel
coal on a U-boat, later thrown into a I
German prison camp to escape by hid
ing in a coal wagon, was a passenger
on the Fabre liner Roma, which
reached New York after a long trip
from Marseilles, with stops at Oran
Africa; the Azores and Providence.
R. I. Solberski was a passenger on
a Norwegian steamer on the way to
Norway on a business trip for his
New York house, when the ship was
torpedoed. He admitted being an
American citizen, though born in Hol
land, and was taken tboard the U-boat
and made to shovel coal. He spent
several weeks on the submarine and
was then taken to Germany and put
lnt oa prison camp.
Here he was kept at hard labor and
was frequently obliged to go for days
without food, he says. He was also
set upon by the guards on one occa
sion and had several teeth knocked
out by a blow from one of them.
A fellow Hollander was delivering
coal at the camp one day and Sol
berski prevailed upon him to smuggle
him over the border. Solberski
climbed into the wagon and covered
himself with bags and blankets. The
trip across the border took three days,
during which time he was without
food. Arriving In Holland he col
lapsed and has been in a sanitarium
much of the time since.

One day O Connor perched Bill
