President Says Company
Will Try New Trick. -;.
American Government Notified of
'. Intention to Connect Cp Barba
! docs System With V. S.
' WASHINGTON", Dec. 1. (By the
Associated Press.) Notice was given
to American. covernment Wednes
day by Neweomb H. Cartlon, presi
dent of the W astern Union Telegraph
company, that his company inteuds
to connect its new cable from Bar
badoes with its lines in the United
States by means of existing cables to
Cuba, regardless of the opposition of
President Wilson and the stata ie
partment. Mr. Carlton's statement was made
In testimony before a senate inter
state commerce sub-committee,
which has before it an administra
tion measure . giving the executive
department absolute control over the
landing of cables on American soiL
He was one of four witnesses exam
ined at the opening of an inquiry
Into the whole subject of cable com
munication and from whose testi
mony the committee developed, among
other hings. that the AU-Arrferica
Cables. Intl. an American concern, is
'engaged, with the support of the
state department, in a fight against
the- Western Telegraph company of
Great Britain and tho Western Union
in an effort to break the cable mo
. nopoly enjoyed by the British com
pany in Brazil.
Other Monopolies Charged.
There also was testimony that the
- All-America company enjoys 'cable
monopolies in several Central and'
South American countries; that the
International communications confer
ence here has reached a tentative
agreement that no censorship shall
be Imposed upon cable - messages
merely passing through relay points:
that there is no cable communica
tions between the United States and
Germany except over British-controlled
lines; that some foreign gov
ernments are subsidizing news agen
cies disseminating reports in other
countries, and that the Western
Union plans further independent con
nections through American cable
lines to Italy,' Holland and Scandi
civia. The committee will continue its in
quiry and will inquire particularly
into the matter of the dissemination
of American news abroad and han
dling of cable messages of America!
firms seeking foreign business.
Subjects Touched Generally.
' These subjects were touched upon
generally and the committee -received
suggestions from Mr. Carlton that in
dependent cable lines be established
between the United States and Japan
and the United States and China for
the exchange of news between those
jvir. tariion -saia insi xne censorship-of
foreign cables was not to be
feared in time of peace. He said it
required a very big organization to
censor communications and that these
had been broken up by European:
countries generally since the war.
; Mr. Carlton discussed at length the
refusal of the American government
to permit the landing at Miami, Fla.,
of his company's cable from Barba
- does, which is to connect with the
British line there to Brazil, and
charged that, by its action, the gov
ernment was seeking to-preserve a
"United States-South American mon
opoly in favor of another company." j
Different Version Given. -
' Elihu Root Jr., appearing for the J
... . i . . r i ..
All-America capies, gave an cmici
different version. He said the ques
tion In stopping the Miami cable land
ing U that it might lead to the
British company giving up Its era
zillan monopoly and charged that tht
Western Union enterea into a con-,
tract with this British company by
which the American concern would
direct to the British lines all th
business collected by it in the United
Ktates. -
. Mr. Root Bald this contract with
the Western Union was a counter-at
tack by the British company on the
All-America cables as a result of the
latter company obtaining through lit
igation in Brazil permission to build
Its own lines to oanios ana xnu uj
Janeiro. He added that the All-
. America received the option "of re
taining its west coast monopoly and
giving up its lines on the east coast
of outh America or taicjng on in. a
commercial war the two greatest

refused the offer. The British gov

testifying as to the controversy be

enjoyed a monopoly in Brazil and
-that this action was "in "conformity
with American precedent and tradi
Secretary Davis also said that the
president had decided that decision

Mrs. Springer came to Portland and
interested herself in an organiza

other social service work. A com

up bail for a man involved in a
moonshine brawf, in order that he
need not spend Thanksgiving; in jail,

parole, Mrs. Springer returned to her
home in Philomath and it was neces
sary for Mr. Cameron to go as far
as Corvallie after her.

ATLANTA. Ga., Dec. 16. (Special.)
-In answer to telegraphic inquiry
from the ,New Tork Sun ' asking
whether or not the Ku Klux Klan had
an organization In New Tork and if
so what was to be its work in New
Tork, Colonel William Joseph ' Sim
Dions, Imperial wizard of the Knights
of the Ku Klux Klan. issued the fol-
owing statement in part, which was
immediately sent to the bun.
"I am always glad to impart infor
mat Ion concerning our work, provided
it does not reveal any of, the secrets
or secret information of the organiza
tion. As regards whether or not we
now have local' klan in New York
city and what, is its membership, I
would like to comply with your re
quest but I can neither deny nor af
firm, as we never formally announce
such facts to the public, as this is in
formation of vital interest only to
members of the organization.
"Should an emergency arise in New
Tork demanding the presence of the
Ku Klux Klan in New York for the
preservation of the fundamental prin
ciples for which this organization
stands; I can say to you frankly that
the Ku Klux Klan would be there on
the Job.
"The invisible empire knights of
the Ku Klux Klan is not a sectional
organization and therefore its terri
torial scope is limited only by our
national boundaries.
"The invisible empire today claims
thousands of men of the eastern and
western states as its loyal and de
voted citizens and this is particularly
true of the great city or new xork.
"Quite recently special interest in
our work has been aroused in New
York city resulting in 'thousands of
voluntary applications for citizenship
in the invisible empire from the city
of New York alone.
The requirements for assuming
citizenship in the invisible empire
are so rigid, however, that only
about one in 20 of those who apply
or would apply for citizenship are
eligible. ,
The invisible empire for the last
five years -has been steadily pushing
Its way and doing its allotted work' in
all parts of America and I am some
what amazed at the sudden and deep
Interest in the organization and its
work which has lately, sprung up all
over the nation.
"The organization stands pledged
to proclaim, inculcate and preserve
In America four great fundamental
principles or doctrines. First, an ab
solute and undying devotion to the
Stars and Stripes and the govern
ment it represents and the upholding
and strengthening of all the laws of
the land, from the constitution itself
on down to the laws of the smaller
communities of the nation.
"Second, the perpetual, maintenance
in America of white supremacy in a
things, social, political and commer
"The method of srocess to
adopted for obtaining thistresult is
vastly different, however, from what
of the writers of, the nation and th
idea that any- injustice is to be done
recently seems to be the impression
anyone through white supremacy o
the methods of obtaining same does
the knights of the Ku Klux Klan
grave Injustice.
'Third, the complete and absolut
separation of church and state, which
one of the fundamental corner'
stones of American liberty, as history
proves that where preacher or priest
dominates tne macninery or govern
ment intolerance prevails and where
ntolerance flourishes human liberty
Fourth, the protection of woman's
honor and the preservation of the
sanctity of the home In that it may be
kept inviolate. The home is the bul
wark and fortress of individual hu-
4pan liberty in America and insidious
efforts to destroy its sanctity and
privacy must be stopped. -
The early day exaltation of wom
anhood and motherhood by all true
Americans jnust be called back and
cherished, for in Its spirit lies wrapped
up the future of real America.''

That the time has arrived when the

driven vehicles against- accident at

offered - in a letter received at the

"Employes of railroads and street
cars are taught and trained in the Im
portance of complying with safety
regulations, said Mr. Howard's letter.
"It requires time, labor and exnense
to stop trains, but the law tells us
we must stop unless protected. Then
why should we not have a law com

law would reduce accidents 95 per

it is possible that the executive will
incorporate a paragraph in his mes
sage to the legislature dealing with
the 'subject.
