Henry Drum Recommended
for Federal Institution.
Democrat Who Finds Himself Serv
ing Under Republican Governor
to Be Granted Relief.
Washington. Nov. 24. Henry Drum,
"Harden of the state penitentiary at
Walla Walla, has been recommended
by Attorney-General Palmer for ap
pointment as waraen of the federal
penitentiary at McNeil island to suc
ceed O. P. Harrigan, republican.
Mr. Drum's appointment will be
formally announced shortly, and rep
resents the first patronage victory
for the democratic state committee
of "Washington in many months.
Heretofore the committee has been
ignored by the administration, which
usually acted on the recommendations
of Hugh Wallace. As ambassador to
France Mr. Wallace Is no longer in
a long wait comes into its own.
During the days when Mr. Wallace
was passing around the plums demo
cratic leaders of the state were un
able to pry loose Warden Harrigan
who, though a republican, had made
an especially good record which for
mer attorney-generals, Mr. Wallace
. concurring, were not disposed to
Mr. Drum, an. appointee of Gover
nor Lister, found himself serving un
der a republican governor and heard
rumblings that he was going to lose
his job at Walla "Walla. He got
friends on the state committee to
board the president's train in his be
half when Mr. Wilson was making
his league tour, and later the state
committee sent recommendations in
writing to both the president and
Attorney-General Palmer favoring Mr.
Drums appointment. Mr. Palmer,
who is more of a politician than his
predecessor in the department of jus
tice, consented to oust Mr. Harrigan
and to reward a faithful democrat
and in this way the change is to
come about.
Warden Drum, who is in Portland
for a brief visit with relatives, de
ciined to say last night whether or
not he would accept the proffered
position. He said he had received no
word from Washington as to his ap
pointment and wished for some defi
nite word before making a decision
on the matter.
Representative Summers, of Wash
ington, not only preaches the doctrine
of back-to-the-farm; he practices it.
Some time ago, when a substantial
recess of congress was anticipated,
Mr. Sumners declared he would put
in "his vacation" on some farm in the
east. Yesterday he drove over into
Virginia, found a farmer who was
short of help, and tendered his serv
ices. This morning bright and early,
arrayed in his working clothes, Mr.
Summers showed up at the Fairfax
farm and set to work butchering hogs
and digging potatoes. For his week s
labor he is to be rewarded with noth
ing but room and board.

In addition to this and the request
that the pleadings of the plaintiff go

The defense contends that the work

of the year when the Ochoco river

injury to valuable farm lands below
the dam.
False representations as to the
work required are charged by Twohy

for the balance remaining were asked.

injured in the recent clashes between
Chinese and Japanese at Foochow, ac

Betterment of Tribes.
SEWARD, Alaska. Nov. 24. (Spe
cial.) The latest addition to the in
numerable multitude of societies and
organizations which have sprung up
within recent years is the Alaska Na
tive Brotherhood, composed of Indi
ans. A four-days convention was
held at Sitka recently at whichdele-
gates from many interior points in
addition to a much more numerous
representation from villages along
the coast were present.
The articles of organization an
nounce the chief purpose to be the
uniting of the native people for co
operative efforts for their own bet
terment. Agents were appointed to
solicit the affiliation of all tribes in
southeastern Alaska; and, it was an
nounced, when this is accomplished
the effort will be further extended
to include the Eskimos and Aleuta.

defining the "industrial undertaking'
to which the agreement would apply
with an amenament which provided
that questions relating to navigation
on inland waterways be referred to a
special conference.
Opposition to the convention as a
whole was expressed by S. K. Parsons,
employers' delegate from Canada, who
insisted the "general application of
til shorter working day would, ac
cording to actual experience, greatly
lessen production." Now when the
government of the country, he said, is
calling on manufacturers to increase
their output and exports in order to
meet heavy national obligations
nothing should be done which would
tend to hinder them in their efforts.
"The cost of living," he added,
"couid be reduced only by increased
production and to ignore this funda
mental truth is to blind our eyes to
the actual facts.
4It is generally recognized," Mr.
Parsons said, "that unless the United
States accepts similar extension it
would be placing an unfair burden
upon Canadian employers and the
country at large to be bound by terms
of the proposed convention.
Newton D. Kowell, government dele
gate from Canada, disagreed with Mr.
Parsons, saying he "feared" the posi
tion of Canada might be misunder
stood as a result of Mr. Parsons' re
marks. He announced that he and
the other Canadian government rep
resentatives would vote for the con
"The action of the government of
Canada does not depend upon the ac
tion of the government of the United
States in dealing with these matters,"
he declared.
Mr. Ko welt pointed out that the
Canadian parliament already had ap
proved the treaty containing the labor
clause and the league of nations covJ
enant, and that since it had approved
them the government of Canada
would "carry out the obligations it
assumed in the treaty, in spirit as
well as in letter."
The conference admitted Luxemburg
to membership.

Prices Mast Decline Before Wages,
Declares Toronto Speaker.
TORONTO. Ont, Nov. 24. Practice
of rigid economy and the reduction of
consumption to a minimum as
means of lowering the high cost of
living were urged by illiam P. G.
Harding, governor of the federal
reserve board, in an address before
the Canadian club here today. If this
is done, he said, the volume of credits
and currency can be reduced and the
healthy process of gradual defla
tion begun.
A check should be placed on the
tendency to increase prices and wages
but he expressed the opinion that
prices must come down first before
labor agrees to a reduction in wages.
The American people, he added, could
be relied upon to extend credits to
aid European nations in their task
of rehabilitation.
The discount on Canadian exchange
in me united states, he said was
more detrimental to the United States
than Canada because the Canadian
exports across the border exceeded
the imports by more than 1 250,000,000

fare fund established by act of the
last legislature, the supreme court
holds in denying a writ of mandate
asked by the attorney-general to
compel such repaid loans to be turned
into the state treasury.
Under the provision of the statute
requiring all officers to transmit to
the treasurer money collected for
state purposes, the attorney-general
contended that the commission had
no authority to reloan money after
it had been repaid to the commission.
The court takes the position that
the commission is not a part of the
fiscal system of the state, and that
the legislature did not contemplate
the creation of a new department of
