they deny this.
Liquor Cars to Be Sold. Auto
mobiles used to import liquor into
the state have been libelled by the
government and will probably be
auctioned from the steps of the fed
eral building by Assistant United
States Attorney Realties. This will be
the first instance of the kind in the
etate where machines have been
libelled. The two cars were used by
Daniel Kuckick and Paul Herzog.
Kuckick forfeited his bail and dis
appeared, but Herzog was convicted
and fined. The money received from
the sale of the machines will be split
60-50, the government taking half
and the informant the other half.

John Barber, who was 'arrested Sun
day night while wearing a stolen
army uniform, was found guilty of
vagrancy in police court yesterday
and sentenced to 120 days in jail by
Municipal Judge Rossman. Barber
showed plainly he had never before
worn a uniform. His queer actions
aroused the suspicions of an ex-service
man who caused the arrest. Bar
ber later admitted he had stolen the
Tile Company Is Looted. Some
Russian residents along the Linnton
road have been breaking into the
plant of the Portland Brick & Tile

Police Jenkins was reported yester
day as being seriously ill at his home
and was unable to be at his office

WORK ON DRIVE ASKED
Montgomery Delegation Appears in
Behalf of Improvement.
J. C. Ainsworth, Cameron Squires,
Robert Strong. Gus Moser, Homer D.
Angel, William Young, William Baker
and other Portland Heights residents
composed a large delegation which
waited - on the Uultnomah county
commissioner yesterday to present
Ithe needs of upper Montgomery drive
for consideration in making: up the
road budget for 1920. The commis
sioners promised to grrre the appeal
The delegation insisted that Mont
gomery drive was a service road of
heavy traffic as well as an automo
bile artery and that in six years the
only improvement it had received at
the hands of the county was the
construction of a fence at dangerous
curves. It is narrow, crooked and
dangerous, they asserted. They did
not ask for hard-surface pavement,
but did desire permanent grade and
alignment, and if possible a macadam
strip In the center.
The specific portion of upper Mont
gomery duive for which consideration
is asked is from a point beyond the
Cobb residence to Fairmount boule

Neil Guiney, secretary for 35.000

was ordered deported, took an appeal
to the United States court of appeals,
and yesterday local federal officials
were informed that the appeal was
In the opinion of Inspector of Im
migration Bonham, United States At
torney Goldstein and other officers,
Guiney is one of the leadinr spirits of
the I. W. W. in the west. Repeated
efforts were made by George Van

played such interest in end for whom
the organization has spent so much
Guiney, according to Inspector Bon

According to Guiney, he was secre
tary of the lumber branch of the I.
W. W., which branch had 35.000 mem
bers. Born in Canada, he came to
the United States irf 1913. Being of

Following Guiney's arrest, Vander

cording to Mr. Bonham, declared that

FUTURE OF SERVICE HERE TO
BE DECIDED TOXIGHT.
Need of Agency in Peace-Time as
Well as in War-Time Held
to Have Been Proved.
The future of community service
in Portland will be decided at a din
ner and meeting this evening at 6:30
o'clock at the Benson hotel which
representative groups of Portland
men and women, representing vari
ous civic organizations, will attend.
The community service is an out
growth of the War Camp Community
Service, which did a great work in
nearly all the cities of the country
during the war. In- this war service
for soldiers and sailors 60,000 volun
teer workers throughout the country
were enlisted. After peace had re
turned it was felt by many that the
community service had filled a real
need, not only for the war but also
for general community work, and that
the work along general civic lines
was of permanent value for peace
times as well as for war.
With this In view, organizations in
eastern states have converted the ma
chinery of the community service to
fit peace-time conditions and that
part of the work which was of a gen
eral community character is being
continued. Whether Portland will
follow the lead of these eastern points
and continue its community service
ror another year at lea&t will be de
termined at the meeting tonight. If
it is decided to do so, a programme
for the next 12 months will be
At the meeting tonight a musical
programme will be given, following
the dinner, at which a demonstration
of community music work will be
made under the leadership of Walter
Jenkins, popular song leader for the
Y. M. C. A. and the War Camp Com
munity Service during the war. Ray
Carter of Seattle, northwestern dis
trict representative of the community
service, will be present and give an
outline of the peace-time plans. A
number of talks will be given by
local people and discussion by all In
terested will follow.

LADS HELD INCORRIGIBLE
LIMIT FOR EARL RILEY AND
BERT CHISX URGED.
Youthful Offenders, Long Familiar
Figures in Court, Get Year in
Earl Riley, whose criminal record
fills pages since he crossed his heart
before former Circuit Judge McGinn
years ago and promised "honor
bright" to tread the straight and
narrow path, and Bert Chinn, a young
partner with less formidable reputa
tion, were sentenced to a yeur In the
state penitentiary for burglary by
Circuit Judge Morrow yesterday after
Presiding Judge Gatens and told Dep
uty District Attorney Hammersley
and Attorney Plowden Stott that their
agreement that one year would be
sufficient if the boys pleaded guilty
held no weight with him.
"If I had my way they would be
sent to the penitentiary for life

Claremont murders are not a bit
worse," declared Judge Gatens. "Riley
has been before me not once but 100

on a similar sentence, both being pa

NEGRO STEVEDORES SLOW
SERVICE IX WARTIME IS DE
German Prisoners More Dependa-
ble, Says Colonel Wells in Cham
ber of Commerce Address.
The amaxins disclosure that Amer
ican negro stevedore troops were less
to be relied upon for the bustling
activities of an army port in France
than were German prisoners was
made yesterday noon by Colonel M.
D. Wells, formerly of the San Fran
cisco & Portland Steamship company,
who spoke before the members' forum
of the Portland Chamber of Commerce.
Colonel Wells was detailed to the
water transport service and spent
much time at Brest and other French
ports, where he had occasion to ob
serve the celerity with which various
breeds of men carried out the giant
tasks of handling supplies and equip
ment for the American forces.
"Let none think that the Germans
believe they were defeated," said
Colonel Wells at another point in his
address. "I talked with many pris
oners. All of them said they were
starved into submission and not de
feated in battle. And their sole idea
was to return to Germany and prepare
for the next war, in which they expect
to retrieve their present disastrous
"Americanization" was the topic
discussed by L D.'Mahone of Port
land, who urged upon his hearers the
necessity for actual assimilation in
citizenship of the foreign-born resi
dent. Resolutions expressing sorrow for
the death of George M. Trowbridge,
editor of the Journal, were unani
mously adopted by the forum, of
which Mr. Trowbridge was a member.
His loss was held to imply a "serious
lessening of the forces of the chamber
in upward and constructive efforts,"
the resolution declaring keen regret
"over the removal of a splendid fellow

MEMORY FEATS WIZING
C. W. HAMI.KY, EXPERT, TELLS
OF EXPERIENCE ABROAD.
Ex-Soldier Who Proved Walking
Encyclopedia for His Regiment
Is Portland Visitor.
C W. Hamley, memory experts, who,
as a member of the 21st engineers in
France, amazed his officers with
demonstrations of memory power and
proved a walking encyclopedia for
his regiment, was a visitor in Port
land yesterday, leaving last night for
Walla Walla. Hamley formerly was
a fireman in Seattle and joined the
service June 1, 1917. After nearly
two years in France he returned home
and was mustered out in the summer.
Hamley first came to the notice of
his superior officers at a supply depot
in France when he was asked to make
an inventory of supplies in a rail
road yard. He spent seven hours in
the yard, without pencil or paper, and
returned with data enough to keep a
staff of clerks busy for five days
transcribing the notes, according to
his statement. After that he was in
demand for that sort of work.
How he turned his ability to use in
saving a member of his own company
from slow death was told by Hamley
last night. A Russian, Felix Witow
skl, member of Hamley's squad, had
been told by a fortune teller that he
would die on a certain date. As the
date approached he became exceed
ingly nervous and finally seriously ill.
"The boys told him I was a fortune
teller." said Hamley, "and Wltowski
walked 11 miles to see me. Of course
I had been tipped off and had memo
rized his service record and secured
all the data I could about his life.
When he appeared I recited whole
chunks of his history. I then set the
