Baron Shimpel Goto on Way
to Homeland.
Roscoo C. Nelson, attorney for the
owners, was presented to W. S. URen,
attorneys for the workers Wednesday
which U'Ken took up with his clients.
At a late hour Thursday night the
laundry workers had not announced
a decision. There is basis for the be
lief, however, that they will ratify
the agreement.
Though there are many provisions
in the agreement, the stipulation In
effect provides that neither side of
the controversy shall abuse the other
side, verbally or otherwise. Picket
ing will be permitted, but only with
banners and with riot more than two
pickets on duty at any one laundry.
Every effort is being made to expe
dite the jewelers' appeal, for numer
ous picketing cases in the state de
pend on its outcome.
Head of Department of Home
and Foreign Affairs Reports
Little Bolshevism.
Baron Shimpel Goto, reputed to be
the wealthiest man In Japan and ac
tive in the Japanese government for
20 years as director of railroads and
head of the departments of home and
foreign affairs, arrived in Portlamd
Wednesday for a brief stay on his
way to San Francisco, where he will
board a vessel for Japan. He left last
evening for California.
When the baron stepped from the
train he was greeted by an imposing
group of local Japanese, on hand to
pay their respects to the distin
guished visitor. He was conducted to
the Multnomah hotel and later was
the guest of local Japanese at dinner.
The Japanese consul, T. Sugimura, of
ficials of the consular office and
prominent Japanese business men
here are entertaining the baron.
Yesterday morning he was taken to
various points of interest over the city
and at noon was the guest of W. D.
Wheelwright at a., luncheon at the
Arlington club, to which a, group of officials and business men have
been Invited. In the afternoon, under'
the guidance of the local Japanese,
he visited the Columbia highway and
was the guest of the Japanese conBul
at dinner.
Baron Goto's career has been close
ly interwoven with affairs of the gov
ernment for 20 years past, and today
he is enjoying a long-looked-for peri
od of rest and sightseeing, his tour
of the United States and Europe be
ing of a private nature and not of
ficial. He arrived in San Fran
cisco seven months ago, spent two
months in this country in the east and
then went to Europe to spend several
months at Paris.
Baron Goto was educated as a doc
tor and studied medicine in Germany
and elsewhere, returning to his home
land to become director of the health
bureau of the home department.
Twenty-five years ago, following the
Chino-Japanese war. he was appoint
ed director-general of Formosa, and
so successful was his administration
of that country's affairs that he was
later given charge of the southern
Manchurian railroad.
Railroad Lines Directed.
His next position was that of min
ister of communication, directing the
railroad lines, postal system and tele
srraph system of Japan. This position
he occupied throughout the life of
two cabinets. Later he occupied the
post of minister of home affairs and
then became minister of foreign af
fairs, occupying the latter position
just before the present Incumbent. He
is now a member of the Japanese dip
lomatic council, an important post in
itself, but not demanding the activity
md constant attention of the other
federal positions and giving time for
tie pleasure that the baron feels
that more than 20 years of continuous
Krrvli-K for Janan warrants.
"The American railroad problem Is
one that I am frequently questioned
about, In view of my experience in ad
ministering the railroads of Japan,'
said Baron Goto yesterday. "The
railroads of Japan went under federal
control ten years ago, and I can say
unqualifiedly the system has been a
erreat success. Tne general proposi
tion of government ownership and
operation is the same everywhere, and
I see no reason wny a system wnicn
is successful in one place should not
be successful in another. However, in
considering your own railroad prob
; lem, conditions in America are vastly
different from those In Japan, so far
as distances and topography are con
cerned, and these differences would
have to be taken into consideration
carefully in any scheme of railroad
Japan Escapes Unrest
Baron Goto was not a member of
the peace delegation, as had been re
ported, and could throw no light on
the reception of the leagua of nations
covenant by the Japanese people. He
declared that unrest, which he found
rampant in. Europe, and even In this
country, had not as yet touched Ja
pan, and he had little fear that the
red flag would get a following there.
"No, I am not a bolshevlst?" said
the baron, with a laugh, misun
derstanding a question as to whether
there was any bolshevism In his coun
try. "There are very few bolshevlsts
in Japan and little labor difficulty.
Baron Goto is an excellent example
of the fine class of Japanese. He is
63 years of age, but looks a dozen
years younger, being straight and
alert, with just a trace of iron in his
hair. He does not talk English, but
was ably assisted yesterday by lo
cal Japanese who were anxious to
have the honor of being interpreter
for him. Although of high family,
the "baron is of the type of self-made
man, as he has added immeasurably
to his wealth and his family position
and influence during his life.
The baron is accompanied by his
secretary, Michiji Tojima, who is
graduate of the University of Tokio
and during his tour of this part of the
country he is also being accompanied
by a prominent Japanese writer of
San Francisco, Kryoshi Kawakami,
graduate of the University of Wis
consin and author of "Japan and
World Peace" and other authoritative
' books on American-Japanese relation-
; ships.
'Gloomy Dean" Inge Sees in Re
turn of Spiritistic Beliefs Re
vival of ecromancy.
LEICESTER, England, Oct. .16.
(By the Associated Press.) The con
gress of the cnurch of England yes
terday held a warm debate over spiri
tualism which started through an at
tack from Very Rev. William Inge,
dean of St. Paul, London, who is
known to the newspapers as the
gloomy dean" because of his some
times despondent views on present-
day life.
The Right Rev. James E. C. Weldon.
dean of Durham, and one or two other
prominent clergymen made a partial
defense of spiritualism and the arch
bishop of Canterbury said the entire
subject would be considered by the
bishops when the Lambeth confer
ence meets next year.
"If," said Dean Inge, "this kind oi
after life were true, that portrayed
in the pitiable revival of necromancy.
in which so many desolate .hearts
have sought spurious satisfaction, it
would indeed be a melancholy post
ponement or negation of all we hcpa
and believe about our dead."
Replying, Dean Weldon said:
"If is too late to dismiss spiritual
ism as a fraud as some say, a nause
ous fraud."
The dean added that the- spiritual
istic phenomena had won the assent
of men of science like Crooks, Lodge,
Flammarion and Lombroso.
Spiritualism is undergoing a re
markable revival in England; appar
ently partly through the hopes of
many war-bereaved persons to com
municate with lost relatives. The re
vival is said to be due largely to the
writing of Sir Oliver Lodge and pop
ular discussions in which Sir Conan
Doyle figures as the chief champion
of the cult.
Robbery Is Reported.
John M. Davis. 592 East Sixty
seventh street north, reported to the
police Wednesday that burglars, had
entered his . home and had stolen
jewelry, silverware and clothing worth
several hundred dollars. Inspectors
Tichenor and Mallett investigated.
Portland People to Wed.
SEATTLE, - Wash., Oct. 16. (Spe
cial.) Marriage licenses issued yes
terday included: Frank Maxwell Ruth
man, legal, and Carrie L. Kessler,
legal; Charles W. Fuller, legal, and
Mary C. McNicol, legal, all of Portland.
Preliminary Report on City
Zoning Expected Soon.
Architect Discusses Problems of
City Building for Benefit of
Portland Exchange.
Within two or three weeks the pre
liminary report, of the city zoning
commission will be ready and public
hearings will begin to ".id the city
government in providing a thorough
and modern zoning plan for Portland,
according to the statement of C H.
Cheney Wednesday in addressing the
Builders exchange of Portland, the
occasion being' a banquet tendered to
the builders by a group of material
men of the city;
"We have Just completed the first
preliminary round of the city after
an exhaustive study covering a period
of nine months." said Mr. Cheney,
"and are now working on the report,
which should be ready to submit to
the public soon.
"In times past suspicion frequently
has attached to real estate invest
ments and lack of proper building
laws frequently has brought losses to
Investors. Buildings erected at con
siderable cost often have been all but
ruined when unsightly and undesira
ble structures were put up beside
them, or smothered by taller struc
tures on all sides.
Aim of System Stated.
"The purpose of the city zoning
system will be to protect investors
by insuring their buildings against
damage in this way, and by provid
ing regulations to govern each part
of the city, to determine the charac
ter of buildings and promote uni
formity." Mr. Cheney, who is the architect in
charge of the studies and research
of the zoning commission, cautions
the people against being carried away
by booms and permitting buildings to
be erected where they would be out
of place. He cited the instance of the
L C. Smith building in Seattle. That
structure, he said, had-sucked all the
tenants out of neighboring buildings,
ruined smaller structures, and had
still remained a "white elephant" on
the hands of the owners, never hav
ing paid, he declared.
"Investors cannot stand the unnec
essary losses which are inevitable if
proper zoning laws are lacking," he
said. "Other cities are coming to it
New York, with more buildings in its
limits than are contained in all the
cities west of the Rocky mountains,
has perfected a zoning law and pro
vided the limits of the business dis
trict the industrial district and the
residence district and has provided
building laws for each district. Port
land should take such steps while
there is time."
The banquet and meeting at the
Benson hotel was attended by about
100 men of the building and building
material industry. J. A. Currey,
chairman of the committee on ar
rangements, presided, and called upon
Mr. Cheney. Rev. E. H. Pence and
Lieutenant-Colonel George H. Kelley,
formerly of the Booth-Kelley Lum
ber company, who had charge of lum
ber production in France, for ad
dresses. Mayor Baker, who was to have been
a guest at the dinner and give an
address, was unable to attend, hav
ing been taken ill.

Search In Gary District.
GARY. Ind.. Oct. 16. Military au
thorities, aided by local officers, con
tinued their search for radical agi

Mapes. commander of the federal
troops, said reports of attempts to
Intimidate workmen had reached him.
