Veterans Again Advance on 'Enemy

Devices in 'Fighting.'
SEASIDE, Or., Aug. 1. (Special.)
Hundreds of legionnaires gathered at
Seaside today for the concluding en
tertainment features of the second
annual convention, wnich closed its
business session in Astoria last nighr.
The most elaborate and spectacular
fireworks display ever held here was
the Battle of the Argonne, in which
60 world-war veterans of Clatsop
post in Astoria participated. About
2500 , persons witnessed the spectac
ular .exhibition, which was directed
by Louis J. Witt of Elmar J. Noble
post of Seattle, a war veteran, who
was wounded in the Argonne, and
Harry J. Katey of Clatsop post.
Through the dense unaergrowtn oi

vanced on enemy trences, "mopping
up" as they went and using all varie
ties of offensive weapons, including
machine guns, grenades, rifles and
trench mortars. Various lights flared
and star shells revealed the battle
field in their peculiar white glare.
Even a tank participated, a tank
which in everyday life was a farm

The ex-service men left Astoria at
9 o'clock this morning on their special
train for Seaside. At noon they had
a clam chowder feast given by the
residents of Seaside under the direc

and the Women's club. E. N. Hurd,
mayor of Seaside, was in charge of
the arrangements and was assisted by
C. M. Evans and S. Snyder.

where if the boost simply resulted in
the curtailment of shipments.
"As far as lumber shipments are
concerned the commission expects the
carriers to fix the rates on eastern
shipments so as not to disturb the
equilibrium of the traffic. The per
centage of increase granted on rates
to eastern points is not arbitrary. In
my opinion adjustment will follow im
mediately after the increase is in ef
fect and the most equitable differen
tial will be established."
As far as export shipments from
the east via Portland are concerned
the carriers will see to it that this
trade is not diverted to water routes,
in the opinion of Mr. Teal. While ex
isting differentials on export ship
ments may not be retained in the
same ratio, he said, an equitable ar
rangement probably will be reached
immediately whereby this traffic will

PORTLAND SHIPPERS TAKE
Freight Rate Increase Not Neces
sarily or Bad Effect, Say
Portland shippers and transport
tion men are speculating, as to the
probable effect of the billion and
half dollar increase .in freight rates
recently granted to the railroads by
the interstate commerce commission.
While information regarding the ap
portionment of the increase is not yet
complete, the general attitude is ap
parently one of optimism.
J. N. Teal, who appeared before the
interstate commerce commission at its
hearing at Washington as attorney
for the Portland Traffic and Trans
portation association and the West
Coast Lumbermen's association, be
lieves that the proposed increase,
while it would necessarily constitute
a disturbing element in shipping prob
lems at first, would probably be as
similated 'very shortly without seri
ous effects to shipping in general and
to lumber shipments in particular.
In my opinion the present inirease
ia more or less of an emergency
measure granted to afford immediate
relief to the carriers." said Mr. Teal.
It is intended. I believe, that the pres
ent order will be supplemented with
further orders from the commission
which will tend to facilitate the ap
plication of the increase. The rail
roads themselves will probably use
every effort to equalize the burden so
that the Increase will affect shipments
as little as possible.
"Naturally, the commission did not

Tremendous possibilities exist for

brought with him a considerable ex

that should be useful to Portland
merchants and manufacturers inter
ested in that trade territory, several
of whom have been in correspondence
with his consulate.
Products Are Discussed-
The Malay peninsula, which looks
ery small on our school maps," said
Mr. Logan, "Is the world's chief

Factory Plana Are Afoot.
"It is encouraging to know that
plans are developing and being car
ried out for the establishment of
such factories, which will have far-
reaching effects in increasing the
importance of our western ports and
their respective territories. We have
been too long a one-sided country,
regardless of the fact that whatever
enhances the prosperity of one sec
tion benefits all.
I was glad to read that local en
terprise has developed plans for the
establishment of a large vegetable oil
mill at Linnton. Although great
quantities of copra are produced on
the Malay peninsula, the vegetable
oil industry is in its infancy there
and the copra is exported almost en-
entirely to European markets.
Speaking of the market for Ameri
can goods in his district, Mr. Logan
said: "Practically all foodstuffs are
imported, mainly from the United
States and Australia. Canned fruits,
fish, vegetables and milk are bought
principally in the American market
and Pacific coast products in those
lines have a large sale there. Some
business is beginning to develop
Oregon pine lumber, and there ought
to be a demand for portable houses,
railway ties and other timbers if they
can be made immune to the ravages
of white ants. A large area of jungle
land is being brought under rubber
cultivation, and a considerable mar
ket has sprung up since the war re

removed for tractors, portable saw

more frequent and more stubborn

POPE RAPS COMMUNISM
Evil Conditions in World Are De

ROME. July 31. Evil conditions
confronting the world are outlined
in a letter issued to the church by
Pope Benedict today. The letter's
purpose is to proclaim the fifteenth
anniversary of the decree by which
St. Joseph was named patron of the
universal church and in it the pontiff
urges the Catholic world to celebrate
for a whole year from December.
"When the end of the war came,"
says the letter, "the minds of men
were exasperated by the length and
bitterness of the conflict and aggra
vated by famine on one side and ac
cumulated riches in the hands of a
few on the other. The' war brought
about two evils diminution of con
jugal fidelity and dimunition of re
spect for constituted authority. Li
centious habits followed, even among
young women, and there arose the
fatal doctrine of communism with
the absolute destruction of dutiful
relations between nations and be
tween fathers and children. Terrible
consequences have already been experienced."
