Virtualfy Decreed.
President Said to Hare Approved
Reported Decision of Secretary
of Labor Wilson.
WASHINGTON. Dec 15. (By the
Associated Press.) Deportation of
Ludwig C. A. K. Martens, eelf-atyled
Russian soviet ambassador to the
United States, is understood to have
hn virtually decided UDon by beC'
retary of Labor Wilson, who has had
the case under advisement since the
conclusion a week ago of the hear
ings in the deportation proceedings.
Justification tor Martens deporta
tion is understood to have been found
by Mr. Wilson in the contentions of
immigration and department 01 jus
tice authorities that the bolshevik
agent held office under the soviet
ree-ime. which they say aims at the
overthrow of the government of the
United States bv force and violence.
President Wilson, whom Secretary
Wilson has consulted, is understood
to have pxDressed himself as willin
to approve the determination of the
secretary of labor. The question of
Martens' deportation is said to nave
been brought up at yesterday's cab
inet meeting:.
Secretary Wilson Is said to plan
to release Martens on his own rea
ognizance until the day set for his
departure from the United States for
Russia. Actual deportation of the
bolshevik agent may be delayed, how
ever, by an appeal to the courts to
stay the order of deportation.
Local Sportsmen Expect Celebrated
Expert to Make This City Center
of Scatter Gun Tourneys.
O. N. Ford, one of the best-known
trapshooters in the world, has been
signed to manage the Portland Gun
club, beginning the first of the year.
Ford's home is in California and he
put the Olympic club on the map as
far as trapshooting is concerned.
Several years ago the famous San
Francisco institution decided to add
trapshooting to its programme of
club sports and built one of the finest
shooting grounds in the country at
Lakeside. At that time Ford was
running the San Jose Gun club and
was engaged to look after the Olym
pic club's plant. In a short time he
built up the scatter-gun department
of the club to one of those recognized
as chief in the United States. He
staged what was termed a world's
championship event in San Francisco
last year over the Lakeside traps and
has held many other big and success
ful events since taking cnarge.
C. B. Preston, newly-elected presi
dent of the Portland Gun club, thinks
the local organization made a ten-
strike by signing up Ford to take
charge here and make Portland one of
the scatter-gun centers of the coun
try. Several previous attempts have
been made to get the well-known
trapHhooter to move to Portland, but
not until several days ago was the ob
ject accomplished.
The gun club resumed its regular
. Wednesday practice shoots yesterday,
when a handful of scatter-gun artists
braved the cold and strong wind for a
try at the blue rocks. C. B. Preston
and J. W. McCormick tied for high
honors with 47 out of 50 targets. L.
Cook, professional, was second with
46. J. C. Braly brought down 38 of
the blue rocks. In a 25-bird event IL
B. Newland broke 24 targets, while P.
J. Holahan smashed it

that either Dempsey isn't as good as

Dan Lyons, Evening Globe. The
first real championship heavyweight
bout staged here n more than 20
years that between Jack Dempsey,
the titleholder, and Bill Brennan, his
challenger has been fought.
But while Dempsey won, and by a
knockout, too, he did not cover him
self with glory while accomplishing
the feat. To the contrary, he lost
much prestige and left the ring amid
the hoots and Jeers of the spectators.
Dempsey's performance was far be
low the standard expected of a cham
pion; particularly one who had been
so highly rated. Indeed, it would have
discredited a "white hope" of the Jack I

clous fine art of the ring, as in every
other human pursuit, men may show

That this showing on Dempsey's
part was discouraging to those who
have consistently maintained that he
could take care of Carpentier as easily
as he put Willard out. is undeniable.
Many ring followers who were deeply
impressed by Dempsey's showing up
to the time of his meeting with Bren

his present capacity. What Dempsey
did this week in New York was not
what was expected of him.

$22 60 From Government, and
Asks for Clemency.
Charles A. Elwell, formerly post
master at Jennings Lodge, Or., yes
terday pleaded guilty in the United
States district court to embezzling
$2260.22 from the government and was
sentenced by Judge Wolverton to
serve one year in the county jaiL In
addition to the jail sentence Eliwell
was also ordered- to pay a fine equal

Elwell was granted a five-day stay
of execution to enable him to arrange

sentence of two years in Clackamas
county for arson, but the case is on
appeal.' He was said to have tried
to collect the insurance money to re
pay the government for its losses.

bear in Elwell's behalf, one petition
from his neighbors for clemency be
ing signed by more than 100 persons.
Robert Morrow, judge in the circuit
court, left his bench and went to the
federal court to plead for leniency.

Americans, is attracting much atten
