LEGAL QUESTION ARISES
Defeat in Primaries May Bar
"Candidacy in Opposition to
Olcott and Tierce.
Charles Hall of Marshfield, who
was defeated by Governor Olcott
for the gubernatorial nomination on
tfse republican ticket in the June
primaries, has announced his inten
tion of being? an independent cand
datp. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Hall's
nominating certificate was filed
with the secretary of state.
Senator Hall was not at his hotel
late last niht and could not be
reached, but he told friends in Port
land during the day that he had
made up his mind to enter the race
because a state-wide call was being
made for him by citizens who sup
ported him in the primaries His
chief reason for filing1 yesterday, was
tne meeting in tne i'ytnian hall Sat
urday night when more than 100
persons held a convention and nom
inated him for governor.
. This meeting, however, was not
unanimous for Senator Hall, as more
than 40 votes were cast against him.
" Political Advisers Consulted.
As soon as he was notified of the
fiction of the nominating conven
tion Senator Hall left his homo in
Marshfield and came to Portland.
He arrived lateSunday night and
went Into conference with political
In the primary election Senator
Hall was defeated by Governor Ol
cott by a margin of less than 1000
votes. Upon the advice of his friends
the Marshfield senator contested the
election, but later dropped the re
count when a canvass of precincts
showed a gain for Mr. Olcott.
. Senator Hall then issued a state
ment to the effect that he would not
support the republican nominee in
the general election. A number of
his most ardent supporters in the
primaries have contended that Hall
was "robbed" in the June contest
and have urged the senator's en
trance into the race as an independ
ent. It was these friends who
brought about the convention in the
Pythian hall Saturday night.
Legal Question Arises.
Whether or not Senator Hall can
legally be an independent candidate
for governor. after being defeated in
the primaries is a question that will
be taken before the attorney-general
for settlement. In all probabil

Rev. Mr. Chorley pointed out the
purpose of the publications of the
church, including "The Church at
Work," 'The Spirit of Missions,"
and others, in teaching the mem
bers of the church something of its
work. "But there is another side of
publicity, which may be called ex
ternal," said Mr. Chorley. "The
Episcopal church is not understood
by outsiders and is often misrep
resented. It is generally supposed
to be exceedingly correct in deport

possessed of overmuch religion. We
are trying to disseminate Informa

trying to show the people of the

church stands in relation to social

the daily papers."
RACE ISSUE CAUSES BOW
STORM BREAKS OVER HEADS
OP EPISCOPAL; DEPUTIES.
Question of Vote for Suffragan
; IMsIiojk? Pigeonholed and House
Takes Up Prayer Book.
t Attempts to drag the race ques
tion into the Episcopalian general
convention were promptly rebuked,
yesterday, in the house of deputies,
and the matter of giving a vote to
the suffragan bishops, said to hinge
on the race issue because two negro
bishops hold such offices, again
was pigeonholed by the lower house.
Demonstrations and applause dur
ing the discussion of the matter

liamentary questions. A speaker,
attempting to secure the adoption
oT a resolution giving the president
the right personally to rebuke any
member guilty of such conduct,
stood in the speaker's rostrum for a
full half minute while the remainder
of the house applauded and laughed
at his efforts.
Aside from these incidents, the
house settled down to strenuous
business and attacked in earnest the
important matter of prayer .book re
vision. A joint session with the
house of . bishops, the euffrag'an
dispute and the prayer book matter
occupied its time for the day.
Routine business and the joint
session were the order in the lower
house in the morning. In. the - af
ternoon, the suffragan "matter came
up again. F. C. Morehouse of Mil
waukee, and George Zabriske. chan
cellor of the diocese of New York,
opposed the plan of giving the right
of vote to the suffragans, the latter
challenging the advisability of giv
ing a man with no responsibility in
diocesan affairs equal powers with
the man who bore th"a-responsibility.
' -' J- .;
Dr. Floyd W. Tompkins of Phila
delphia said that if the right of
vote were not given, churchmen
would refuse to accept such a posi
tion and would not attend conven
tions because they would be humil-J
iated by lack of power.
Rev. C. B. Wilmer, arguing for the
suffragan's suffrage, held - that
the church -red it to the ngro
bishops who had been elected to
work among their own race. This
attempt to bringin the race 'ques
tion was promptly rebuked by W. A.
! Ervan, lay delegate from Durham.
N. C-, who took exception to certain
words used by Rev. Mr. Wilmer.
The matter was settled by being
put over for further deliberations.
Because of the applause given by
the factions during this debate,
George F. Henry, lay delegate from
Iowa, proposed the resolution that
the. president be instructed person
ally to rebuke any offender. This
brought - a storm of protest. Mr.
Henry, taking the speaker's plat
form to urge the adoption of such
a resolution, Was drowned by -a
storm of the, very applause which
he attempted to quell by rule.

regarded its own roles, it should

HOLY LAND PLEA IS MM
AMERICANS ARE WARNED OF
Archbishop Panteleimon of Nea
poleos, Palestine, Addresses Vis
iting Bishops at St. David's.
A plea for the aid of American
Christians to protect the sacred
places of the Holy Land was made
last night by Archbishop Pantelei
mon of Neapoleos,PaIestine, before
a congregation of 500 visiting bish
ops and delegates at St. David's
Episcopal church. .
The ever-increasing menace of
Mohammedanism, as yet unfelt
the west, has caused concern in the
eastern orthodox church and this
must find a strong combatting pow
er in America, he said.
The keynote of the .meeting last
night in the interest" of the old
Catholic and the easter orthodox
churches was a spirit of marked
friendliness exhibited between the
delegates of the various churches
and districts present. The speak
ers declared that more progress had
been made toward bringing about
a restoration of unity- between the
eastern orthodox church and the An
glican church within the last three
years than had been made in the
S00 years previous.
It was announced that a concordat
had been arranged which if accept
able o both communions would re
store an intercommunion between
the two churches, the result of many
years of patient endeavor to bring
about a restorat;on of the broken
CHURCH SCHOOLS LAUDED
ASSEMBLES FOR DINNER.
More Substantial Support of Epis
copal Educational ' Institu
tions Urged by Speaker.
A distinguished gathering assem
bled at the Portland hotel at dinner
last night, representing the alumni
of the five colleges of the Episcepal
church, to hear presentations of ap
peals and arguments in behalf of a
united front by the educational in
stitutions in their work with and
support of the Episcopal church.
The Rt. Rev. Charles H. Brent
chancellor of Hobarf college, and
bishop of western New York, ex
pressed the desire that the church
should see the reliance it must have
upon the colleges to produce for it
men who will figure prominently in
cnurcft life and give their whole
hearted support to the church in Its
spreading of Christian education.
"Had I been an undergraduate in a
college today," said the bishop, "and
faced the temptations which the
young men of the universities do to
day, . I feel I would have become
either an agnostic, or at least a
luke-warm Christian. The church
college stands for a mighty prin
ciple, that God is the foundation of
all knowledge and the end of all
knowledge. At the start the fault of
the university was that it was pro
foundly religious. While some uni
versities have lost their highest
character, the church colleges still
retain that quality of presenting to
day a pattern and ideals which the
country needs. We are bound to
build up those colleges to proclaim
that there is no difference between
the sciences and the truths of Jesus
"Our campaigns have always been
for the bare necessities of life. We
are now asking for nothing which is
extravagant. We do not ask for sup
port financially alone, but we want
more substantial - support from
churchmen. Church colleges are not
merely for the sons of the clergy
and those who are entering the min
istry, but also for the sons of the
laity who want their children to
know that there is nothing in educa
tion which takes the place of the
dogmatic teachings of Jesus Christ."

NOVEL MUSIC BROADCAST
DULCIMER, BANJO, BONES
Radio Fans Say Odd Programme
Is Heard Easily; . Vocal and
Piano Solos Are Given.
Music of sort which many lis
teners had not heard for years was
broadcast last night from The Ore
gonian tower in conjunction with
the Shipowners' Radio service, and
in spite of its unusual nature, radio
operators from every direction, both
in Portland and outside the city,
telephoned that it was going over
the air in splendid shape and could
be heard plainly and distinctly.
The concert was given by Robert
son's Old Timer's trio, consisting of
dulcimer, banio and bones. The trio
is led by J. C. Robertson, who plays
the dulcimer. G. H. Jessup, banjo
maker and player, is the second
member and last night he played a
new banjo 'which he had just com
pleted, a marvel of intricate work
manship, which took him three
weeks to make. The third member
of the trio is J. N. Estes, who rattles
the bones in a lively and syncopated
fashion. These three turned out ten
pieces of very frisky music, which
reminded listeners of the old-fashioned
dances and hoe-downs down
on the farm. The numbers played
were "Nachez," "Soldier's Joy," "Ri
singer's March," "Turkey in the
Straw," "Circus Reel," "Fisher's
Hornpipe," "Old Time Waltz," "Yan
kee Doodle," "Durang Hornpipe"
and "Jay Bird."
The programm-e was added to con

Mamie' Cook of Newberg and three
piano solos by Miss Teresa Kellener
of the Eilers' Music House. Miss
Cook happened to be in Portland
