In his new position Lieutenant Day

time he has been stationed on the
first night relief, but it was known
about headquarters that. In so far as
routine work was concerned, he was
more or less a "figurehead."
Day has been on the Portland po

against liquor withdrawals today, by
Prohibition Commissioner a.ramw.

Mr. Palmer's opinion was said by
revenue bureau officials to consti

Wholesale liquor delaers, the attor

liquor stored in bonded warehouses to
manufacturers and wholesale drug
gists, "but the right' to withdraw said
liquors from bonded warehouses is
granted to manufacturers and whole

Mr. Palmer held the authority to issue

Measure Would Compel Honest
Marking of Manufactured
Cloth to Show Contents.
Washington, Feb. 2. The northwest
figures prominently In formulating
and promoting legislation to compel
an honest marking of manufactured
cloth to show the percentage of wool
it contains and the proportion of
shoddy, soon to be reported out. for
enactment by congress.
The measure, known as the "truth
In fabrics" bill, was introduced by
Representative -French of Idaho. The
wool growers of all the northwest
states have been petitioning congress
to pass the bill, believing that it will
prove a great assistance to the wool
industry, because in the last few years
much cloth sold as "all wool" has been
found to contain but a small part of
real wool.
Representative Webstar of Wash

ber of a subcommittee of the house

by the Portland Symphony orchestra
in concert at the Heilig theater. .
The assisting vocal artiste was Miss
May Peterson, soprano, of the Metrop

portant, busy element in the make-up
of the entire musical offering. The
audience was large and in the mood
to applaud heartily and demand extra
Carl Denton was once more an Ideal,
quiet, cultured .conductor who at all
times kept his musical forces well
under control. .
Weber, Schubert, Liszt and Hajvor
sen were the instrumental creators
drawn upon by the orchestra for In
terpretation and the list was finely
balanced, the different schools being
well represented. The Weber over
ture "Der Freischuts" is an old Port
land favorite. The spirit of its music
reflects laughter, tears and goblins
and these are deftly voiced in orches
tration and story. The strings began
the picture, followed by sonorous
brasses, until Weber devotees were
in that special heaven of happiness
known to them.
The "Unfinished Symphony" I of
Schubert, a man of many social re
verses, is also well known at these
symphony concerts, where it is a de
served favorite. It is wealthy in the
possession of one simple yet dignified
music message, which appears and re
appears in a dozen different orches
tral forms like beautiful flowers in
a large vase and fragrant with per
fume that is subtle.
The Liszt symphonic poem "Les
Preludes" is well known from its in
clusion in many concerts by concert
orchestras and brass bands. The en
tire message is solemn almost a pre
Lenten sermon in miniature and ex
quisitely fashioned. It received a
careful rendition in accordance with
Its importance. .
The audience liked the "Triumphal
March of the 'Boyards'" (Halvorsen)
and the liking deepened into joy as
the orchestra began to unfold its
many joyous moods. Brasses and
drums helped the strings and wood
wind to work up merriment: and the
climax formed a fit mind-picture to
take away as memory of an orches
tral treat. The Halvorsen number
had to be repeated.
Portland concert-goers have bad
previous acquaintance with Miss May
Peterson of Wisconsin and New York
and they like her. She sets out at
the beginning of every concert to
win the affections of her audiences.
nd if last night's experience is u
fair criterion she certainly succeeds.
Tall and pleasant to look upon,
and with a charming series of
sunny smiles, she uses her beautiful
voice as a messenger of agreeable
thoughts. Miss Peterson is a lyric
soprano, and sings with style, finish
and charm. Her voice is not large
nor powerful, but it is adequate to
all demands made upon 1L it Is not
voice that one usually associates
with high notes and high notes only.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 2. Volun
tary reductions of wages among the
13.000 workers in the Standard Oil

Backing of Prohibitionist Appears
- to Be Main Offense to Re
publican Leaders.
Washington, Feb. 2. As the result of
his indorsement of Representative
Charles H. Randall, prohibitionist,
who is a candidate to succeed himself
at a special election in the ninth Cali
fornia district, Representative Vol
stead is in danger of losing the
chairmanship ot the judiciary com
mittee. -The advice that Mr. Volstead, whose
claim to the chairmanship of the ju
diciary committee is based on his re
publicanism, has indorsed a prohi
bitionist was received in Washington
two or three days ago.
Mr. Volstead s offense appears to be
very grave in the eyes of the regular
republicans, owing to the fact that
the republican candidate in the ninth
district Is a dry. The leaders of the
movement to displace Mr. Volstead as
the head of the Judiciary committee
acsert that he has placed himself out
side of the breastwork of the repub
lican party.
They Insist stoutly that he cannot
contend that the feeling that has de
veloped against him originated with
the wets, but that it Is due to his
lack ot loyalty to the republican
party. He will be prevented from
bringing the prohibition issue into the
contest owing to the declarations on
the question that have been made by
the regular republican candidate for
the election in the ninth California
district. It is being argued that Mr.
Volstead has demonstrated that he is
more Interested in having an extreme
prohibitionist in the house than in the
sucess of the republican party.
Even before prohibition developed
as an issue, Mr. Volstead was not very
closely allied to the party. He had
always been Inclined to desert the
party when a contest developed which
mieht endanger his popularity in his
district. WJth the general success of
the party, Mr. Volstead has been in
clined to line up with the regulars
until this recent offense of indorsing
Mr. Randall, who is classified here as
more of a democrat than even a pro
hibitionist. The real problem of the opposition
to Mr. Volstead will be selection of
his successor. In order to eliminate
the prohibition question and make the
issue solely on Mr. Volstead's lack of
party loyalty, it is believed that an
other dry will be selected for the
chairmanship of the committee. Th's
probably would eliminate Representa
tive George S. Graham of Pennsyl
vania, ranking member of the com
mittee, who is classified as a wet.
L. C. Dyer of Missouri, who comes
next on the committee, and repre
sentative Joseph Walsh of Massachu
setts, would be out of the race for
the earae reason. It is possible, and
in fact altogether probable, that tho
opposition will select a member from
same other committee. This usually
is the course followed when the first
or second member on the committee.
after a chairman has been deposed,
is not selected.
At least. Mr. Volstead's action in In
dcrsing the prohibitionist for con
gress will start some trouble for him
when the work of organizing the next
hcuse is inaugurated at the special
