"WASHINGTON. Oct. 3. (Special.)
An effort is to be made as soon as
congress convenes to take the control
of deportation of undesirable aliens
out of the hands of tile department of
labor and place it in the hands of the
department of state.
The reason for this is found in the
continued success of Louis JT. Post,
assistant secretaryy of labor, in balk
ins the efforts of the department of
justice to obtain the deportation of
men, who, in the Judgment of the at-torney-peneral,
have been shown to
be guilty of advocating the over
throw of the American government
by force.
150 Oat on Parole.
There are now at large in the
United States no fewer than 150
aliens whose deportation has been
ordered. Many, and perhaps nearly
all of these have been paroled by Mr.
I'ost to a committee named by him,
who are said to be advanced thinkers
in politics and economies not an
archists or communists at all, but
men of socialistic leanings.
The excuse for not carrying out the
order of deportation is that there are
no ships sailing for Russia, though
the Buford carried the cargo of reds,
among-them Kmma Goldman and Al
exander Berkman, without difficulty
and the departments were quite will
ing to put another transport at the
disposal of the labor department for
the same purpose.
The paroling of reds or their re
lease on insufficient bail, following
the wholesale cancellation of depor
tation warrants by Mr. Post has
greatly handicapped the department
of justice in its campaign against
criminal anarchists.
Palmer Not To Prosecute.
It was at first suggested that the
department of justice should receive
ciiarge of the deportation business,
but the incongruity or that branch
being both judge and prosecutor in
these cases was recognized.
It seems to have become the policy
of this country to make the labor de
partment the seat of representation
of unpopular political sects and there
Is current in Washington a rumor
that Raymond Robins, the friend of
the soviet, is to succeed Secretary
Wilson in the event of Senator Hard
ing's election.. This is another rea
son for the movement of transfer
jurisdiction in the cases of anarchists
and communists who subscribe to the
doctrines of force, away from the
department of labor.
Freed Anarchist Red Delegate.
The case of Alexander Stocklitsky
is instanced as a specific incident
of the result of allowing the deporta
tion proceedings to remain in the
hands of men whose political attitude
is like that of Mr. Post. He was
convicted of criminal anarchy and
ordered deported. He was released
on bail. When his conviction was
affirmed he could not be found and
the bail forfeited. Last month he
turned up as oje of the American
delegates to the red conference at
Baku, which was primarily a con
vention of bolshevists of Persia,
Turkey, India and other Asiatic
countries. Louis E. Fraina and A.
Bilan were the other American dele
gates. This, is the conference in which
Bela Kun, Knver Pasha and Karl
It a d e k participated. Radek's ad1
drefcs declared that the eastern peo
ples united to soviet Russia will be
able to overthrow the governments
of the world.

Ex-Counsel for Supply and Sales
Division Explains Recent
SEATTLE, Wash.. Oct. 3. (Special.)
While reiterating his charges of
mismanagement in the supply and
sales division of the United States
shipping board emergency fleet corpo
ration, Howard G. Cosgrove. ex-counsel
for that organization, has issued
a statement which he declared would
be his last unless further aspersions
from the home office tf the shipping
board caHed for a more pertinent re
ply on his part.
Mr. Cosgrove resents the inference
conveyed in a Washington interview
with Admiral Benson, and, on that
score made the following statement:
"Until 1 read yesterday morning's
paper, there was never any complaint
concerning my services with the fleet
corporation. When I sent in 'my
report showing mismanagement of
supply and sales division, which was
prior to my resignation, I knew
my services would become unsatisfac
tory to quite a number of people. Cer
tainly it could not be otherwise. I
have always been politically unsatis
factory. As to the service causing
the present displeasure, I am well sat
isfied, and believe that the publicity
showing the mismanagement of the
sales division has already resulted in
preventing a great loss to the gov
ernment. Duty la Declared Done.
"I did what I thought was my duty,
and the matter is closed so far as I
am concerned. I am happy to be free
from further connection with the fleet
corporation, and evidently several
people are glad that I am gone.
Therefore the situation from this as
pect is pleasing to us all."
The announcement contained in
yesterday's Washington dispatch
anent the dismissal of G. I. Deane.
local controller for the fleet corpora
tion, is seemingly premature, at least
as far as local knowledge of such
action by the shipping boaTd is "concerned.
Dismissal Is Denied.
Mr. Deane denies that he has been
isniissed from the service. On theJ
other hand, he recites that frequent
ttempts on his part to separate him-
elf from the fleet corporation have
resulted in failure. Deane, according
to duplicate copies of messages sent
by him to the home office, first sent
is resignation in on June 17, 1920,
nd followed this by. two similar at
tempts, the last of which was
nswered with a request that he re
main another month. .
A last request, dated" September 30.
asking relief in order that he might
ttend to private matters, as yet met
with no response. In addition to a de-
ire to engage in private pursuits, Mr.
Deane declared last night that hi-s
resent position had grown distaste
ful to him.
Andrew Wooley, another attache of
he local shipping-board staff, whose
ismissal was also mentioned in ves-
erday's telegram from Washington,
understood to be on leave of ab
sence, the first he has taken since
917, at the expiration of which he
was to resign.

SALEM. Or.. Oct. 3. (Special.) The
Oregon public service commission,
acting upon a complaint received from
Wallace B. Caulfield, A. A. Price and
Thomas F. Ryan of the Oregon City
Live Wires, sent a letter to A, T. Mer
cier, superintendent of the Southern
Pacific company, calling attention of
the officials of that corporation to the
apparent need of Improved station fa
cilities at the Clackamas county city.
The letter to Mr. Mercier was pre
pared by Fred G. Buchtel, chairman of
the commission.
"Please be "advised," said Mr. Buch
tel's letter to Mr. Mercier, "that the
commission is in receipt of a com
munication wherein it is contended
that the Southern Pacific station was
constructed more than 50 years ago.
and that few changes for betterment
have been made since that time.
"Further, that the present freight
depot is entirely inadequate and
crowded, both as to freight and pas
senger facilities, and that consider
able time is lost by shippers and re
ceivers of freight by reason of these
poor facilities. Also that it is the
practice to unload stock at the main
depot and lead them across the pas
senger platform to reach the street.
"It Is probably ' needless for the
commission to state that if but a por
tion of these contentions are true,
that there is immediate need for
marked improvement of the station
facilities at that point and the com

Buildings Erected This Year, but
No Time for Drainage or Put
ting in Walks.
ALBANY, Or., Oct. 3 (Special.)
Because of the recent heavy rains
the Linn county fair, which was to
have been held this week, beginning
Tuesday, was called off today. The
grounds are in such condition because
of the rain that it was deemed inad
visable to go ahead.
The board of directors of the fa
association reached this decision i
meeting held this forenoon at the
grounds. It is believed the track
would be in shape if no more rain
comes, but the ground is very damp.
The fair buildings were built this
year and there was no time to build
walks or roads inside the grounds
and hence conditions for public con
venience are very unfavorable.
Before another year the new
grounds can be drained properly and
roads built so that ' unfavorable
weather conditions may be met.

But wills need not be poorly prepared. Because
of his experience in such matters, a competent
