Old Grudges of Officers Aired,
Says Chief.
Letter From Admiral A. M. Knight
Withheld Irora Committee,
Virtual Accusation.
WASHINGTON, May -J4. Secretary
Daniels accused the senate naval in
vestigating committee today ol "dig
King: up ancient history" and "airing
the grievances and grudges of dis
gruntled naval officers." The accusa
tions came during a long series of
questions from Chairman Hale re
garding disappearance in 1914 from
the files of the navy department of a
rletter from Kear-Admiral Bradley
Kiske on na.val oreoared neps.
Sir. Daniels said he had no objec
tion to prolonging the hearings by
going back as far as 1914. but he
did not see how the matters referred
to had any bearing on the question of
the naval conduct of the war. Chair
man Hale replied that he was seeking
to show that Secretary Daniels was
-warned by his chief technical ad
visers that the American navy was
not prepared for war previous to the
entry of the United States into the
WlrbfaolrilnK Virtually barged.
The. chairman virtually charged Mr.
Daniels at another point with having
withheld from the senate a letter
from Rear Admiral Austin M. Knight,
written in August, 1914, advising the
immediate withdrawal of American
battleships from Mexican waters and
the preparation of the navy for pos
sible eventualities resulting from the
world war, then just beginning. To
support his contention. Senator Hale
read a senate resolution asking for
communication from the navy gen
eral board regarding war prepara
tion of the navy and a reply from Mr.
Daniels declaring that he had no com
munication bearing on the subject.
Admiral Knight's letter, the chairman
said, was in Mr. Daniels' possession at
the time and bore vitally on the sub
ject of preparedness.
Secretary Daniels in reply said he
had not considered Admiral Knight's
letter as an official communication
from the general board, had not con
sidered that it related to preparation of
the navy but was rather an elabora
tion of Rear Admiral Kihke's insist
ence that the battleships in southern
waters be brought home at ones.
Old Controversy Renewed.
Cross examination centered largely
today around the old controversy be
tween Secretary Daniels and Rear
Admiral Kiske regarding reorganiza
tion of the navy department and plac
ing responsibility and authority for
the entire direction of the navy in the
hands of a naval officer.
Characterizing Admiral r'iske as a
"monumental egotist." who "bored me
to exhaustion." the secretary said the
officer was actuated by a desire tod
"Prussianize" the navy. Chairman
Hale announced that, in view of the
gravity of the charges. Admiral Kiske
would be given an opportunity to ap
pear later and defend himself.
Miss Sibyl Mitchell Praises
Tanlac for Her Present
Splendid Health.
The remarkable reconstructive pow
ers of Tanlac are further evidenced
in the case of Miss Sibyl Mitchell, a
popular young- lady, residing with her
mother at 2725 Fairmont street, Los
Angeles, Cal.
"Before I began taking Tanlac." said
fellas Mitchell, -I was in e dreadful
'state of health and my condition could
not possibly have been much worse.
J was awfully blue and despondent,
and had just about given up all hope
of ever being well again. But now,
after taking only four bottles of Tan
lac. I feel as well as I ever did in my
life, and have actually gained eight
een pounds In weight.
"Three years ago I suffered a nerv
ous breakdown. Then, on top of this,
about a year ago I had a severe at
tack of the flu, and was left in such
a rundown, weakened condition I was
in bed for four months, unable to
walk a step. My appetite left me
entirely, and I was so weak I could
hardly raise my hands, and it was
even an effort for me to talk. I was
so awful nervous that the least little
noise or excitement caused me to
tremble like a leaf, and it was ut
terly impossible for me to get a ood
night's sleep.
"I had tried many different medi
cines, but nothing seemed to do me a
particle of good. At last a girl friend
urged me to try Tanlac, which I did.
and 1 commenced feeling better with
the first bottle. As I continued tak
ing it I continued to improve, until
now I have a fine appetite, can eat
anything I want and everything
agrees with me perfectly. My nerves
are as steady as can be, and I sleep
so soundly my mother says she can
hardly wake me in the morning. I
just feel so good and- am so full of
life my friends say I am like a dif
ferent girl. It is a real pleasure for
me to recommend Tanlac after the
wonderful benefits I have received
from it."
Tanlac is sold in Portland by the
Owl Drug Co. Adv.

partment and thus robbed the com
missioner of public affairs of his
chance to protest against reaching
into the general fund to pay expenses

Carelessness Causes Dcathof 23,000
Persons, Says Jay Stevens.
"More than 23,000 persons were
killed last year through fires that
originated because of carelessness,"
was the statement of Jay Stevens,
former fire marshal of Portland, at
the weekly luncheon of the Rotary
club yesterday at the Benson hotel.
"The American people suffer a loss of
more than $300,000,000 annually by
fire, 99 per cent of which could be
prevented," he added.
L. A. Nelson, representing the "West
Coast Manufacturers' association
spoke on "The Forest Product In
dustry' and he urged the club to get
behind any agitation aiming at in
creasing the appropriations for the
fighting1 of timber fires.
John K. Iee followed Mr. Xelson
and delivered a tribute to the scenery
of this state. C 1 a y t Williams,
Rotarians' district governor, explained
the extreme difficulty of his job and
was roundly sympathized with by th
assembled "brothers." Krnie Downs
ot Victoria, the composer of "I Don't
Want to Go Home," and Ed Baker of
Shanghai created enough laughs for
a regiment when they started on
their reminiscences of past conven
tions. A dinner dance for next Tuesday
evening was announced at the close
of the programme.
