Judge Carey maintained that a re-

back to the Oregon courts without the

"To begin with, I want to assure

WASHINGTON, D. C, May 6. New
Tork City's foreign born white popu
lation showed slight increase in num
bers, and went down in its ratio to
total population, according to 1920
census figures made public today.
The increase in numbers for the last
decade was less than one-tenth of
that for the previous ten years, and
the percentage, compared with total
population, dropped from 40.1 to 35.4.
The actual numerical increase was
61,613, bringing the city's total for

increase of about 660,000 was re

There was an apparent decrease of

WAR VETERAN IS SUICIDE
La Grande Man Who Served In Si
beria Suffered From 111 Health.
LA GRANDE. Or., May 6. (Spe
cial.) A post-war tragedy was en
acted here late today, when Arthur
Karnes, eon of Mr. and Mrs. Fred
Eames, of this city, committed suicide
because of ill health. The family was
preparing to move and while alone,
young Eames removed ' a shotgun
from its box, placed the end of it in
his mouth and fired. Although work
men were in the yard, the shot was
not heard, and a few minutes later,
Arthur's mother entered the room to
find the dead body of her son.
Mr. Karnes served in the United
States army in Siberia and upon his
return home was sick, having been
in the state hospital at Pendleton for
some time. Previous to the incident
he had made some remark to the
workmen which cave the impression
that he was 'afraid of insanity. He)
left a note for his parents, asking
forgiveness for the deed.

SECRETARY MAKING GOOD

Way of Tackling Task,
BT MARK SULLIVAN.
(Copyright by the New Tork Evening Post,
Inc. Published by Arrangement.)
WASHINGTON, I. C, May 6. (Spe
cial.) Everbody thinks of Mr. Hughes
as having the biggest job in the cab
inet and as living up to it in a way
that commands universal admiration,
so long as our foreign affairs are so
complex and so pressingly important.
This judgment is correct.
But it is also true that another man
in the cabinet, much less in the public
eye, has a job the difficulties of which
are not perceptibly less. The public
eye does not realize yet how heavy a
burden rests on Secretary Mellon of
the treasury. The changes that have
taken place in this department in the
direction of size and complexity are
not realized. When Wilson became
president the treasury did a business
of, roughly, a billion dollars a year,
and carried a public debt that was
comparatively negligible. During the
eight years of Wilson's administration
the changes that occurred in the
treasury department were enormous.
To mention only the more important
differences between the treasury at
the time Wilson came into power and
the treasury as Secretary Mellon finds
it, is to make an extremely impressive
New Departments Added.
The annual financial operations of
the treasury have increased from,
roughly, a billion dollars to- approxi
mately five billions. The public debt
has increased from a negligible euro
to more than 20 billion dollars. Many
new departments have been added of
size and importance as great as the
whole treasury itself was eight years
ago. The income tax law entails an
nual financial operations greater than
the entire business of the treasury
formerly. The enforcement of the pro
hibition law has added to the treas
ury a force almost as great as the en
tire former force of the treasury de

act the treasury has taken over a de

NEW YORK, May 6. Carleton
Simmon, special deputy police com

and Germany were waging a contest
for world-wide control of narcotics.
Addressing the national " police

command oi the local narcotic divi

Japan manufacturing drugs on a vast
scale, but some of her merchants were

they were not prohibited from ex

Japanese merchants, he continued
were purchasing every ounce of nar
cotic drugs they could buy in America,
A ton of these drugs was shipped
from Seattle to Japan in a single
month, he declared, adding that the
Japanese ring knew American manu
facturers are law abiding, and that
street vendors could get their supply
of narcotics only from smugglers.
"On the other hand," said Mr. Sim
mon, "we nave in Germany me o'g

is attempting to obtain control of
