Assignment of pastors for the next
year, reading of various appoint
ments by Bishop William O. Shepard
and announcement that First church,
Portland, had been selected for the
meeting of ministers and laymen a
year hence, featured the closing
hours of the annual Oregon confer
ence of the Methodist Episcopal
church which adjourned at noon to
day. The. conference started last
In announcing the assignment of
pastors Bishop Shepard said the task
had proved one of the most difficult
ana unpleasant problems that had
confronted him since he became the
acting head of the conference. He
declared that he had been besieged
with appeals on behalf of certain
ministers and that many of them
had requested that-they be assigned
to churches in or near the larger
citlea of the state.
Assignments Based on Merits.
It was made plain by the bishop
that the assignments were based on
merit and opportunity for future re
sults, and that he had not allowed

Attorney Director to Offer Data
Available and Engineer May
Be Employed as . Well.
The city will take an active part
in the rehearing of the telephone
rate case. At an informal meeting
of the council, at the suggestion of
City Commissioner Bigelow, the of
ficials instructed City Attorney
Grant to prepare to represent the
city at the hearing.
A formal resolution authorizing
the city attorney's office to proceed
in the case will be presented to
the council tomorrow by Commis
sioner Bigelow and will be adopted.
"I have noticed in the newspapers
that another hearing of the tele
phone rate case will begin on Octo
ber 2," said Commissioner Bigelow
in introducing the subject to the
council. "When the telephone case
was up before the city attorney's
office made a very strenuous fight
and has much evidence and informa
tion that no doubt would be of
value in the new case,
"The question of telephone rates
is one that afpcts the great ma
jority of people of Portland as well
as of the state of Oregon, and if
it can be shown that the rates are
not equitable and just, they should
"I feel that the city council should
take such steps as will insure the
people of Portland representation
at this hearing."
City Attorney Grant announced
that H. M. Tomlinson, assistant city
attorney, who was In charge of the
city's case in the telephone rate
hearings of the past, would be as
signed to the new telephone case.
While Mr. Tomlinson has many
data that will be of value, no doubt,
in the new case, it is quite possible
that it will be necessary for the city
to employ a competent engineer to
aid in preparing the city's end of
Mayor Baker, and In fact all of
the members of the council, gave
hearty support to Mr. Bigelow's
suggestion. Mayor Baker held that
it was the plain duty of the city
to do all within its power to bring
about a reduction in the present
"The city took the position a year
ago .that the rates now In effect I
were excessive and there Is no rea
son why the city should not take
the same stand at this time," the
mayor said. "In fact, if anything,
there is greater reason now for a
reduction than was the case a year
ago. It will take a little money
to participate ' in the case, but 1
feel as Commissioner Bigelow does,
that the expenditure of this money
is absolutely justified. .
CRIME DECLARED WANING
Captain of Inspectors Reports on
Conditions In August.
Despite recurring attacks on
women in the Peninsula districts,
there was less crime in August than
in many previous months, according
to the mpnthly report submitted by
Captain of Inspectors HaAns to
Chief of Police Jenkins.
In all, 71 arrests were made by
the bureau of Inspectors, the largest
number, 17, being for vagrancy.
Two murderer suspects, eight fugi
tives from justice, six alleged
burglars, nine men wanted for
larceny and a number of others
were apprehended. Thirty-three
vagrants were arrested by other
divisions and six suicide cases were
Cases reported for investigation
numbered 243 and 161 were cleared
up. Two of the three murder cases
called to the bureau's attention
were satisfactorily investigated.

FIRE DAMAGING EARTH
Blaze Eats Way Into Reclaimed
Land, AVhich May Be Flooded.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or., Sept. 11.
(Special.) Thousands of acres in
the lower Klamath marsh are men
aced by the fire which started Fri
day on the grain ranch of Chin
Lung, near Midland. More than 1500
acres of grain have been destroyed.
The greatest damage, however, is
being dons to the ground. The fire
has burned into the tule, roots and
eaten two feet into the ground. It
Is believed a large area will have to
be flooded, encircling the fire to
keep It from destroying the fertility
of ' the entire reclaimed portion of
the marsh. There are about 20,000
acres in this danger area.
A new highway bridge is menaced
and the county court today sent re
inforcements to aid the fire-fight
ers. Twenty men have been on the
scene since the fire started. At noon

Milton Roberts and wife, with
their young lady daughter, Ivy, ar
rived from Winnipeg. They left
their home on the first of May, and
have devoted their time to explor
ing British Columbia and the states
of Idaho and Washington. After
a very pleasant trip they expect to
start from here to their home.
From Elmira, Idaho,-- came two
machinists, F. W. Pett and E. H.
Kirk. They left their Idaho home
about two weeks ago, and from
here they expect to go to Los Aut
geles, possibly for the winter. They
are rather undecided as to their
future, but Portland looks good to
them, and they may return, from
California to Portland.
J. J. Monroe, with his son, L. B.,
and daughter, Mrs. Howard Wade,
with little Howard Jr., 1 year old.
are from Walla Walla. They have
been traveling for two weeks, and
have visited friends as far south as
Medford. They will return to their
home via Seattle, making a trip of
about 39 days.

James, 12; Catherine, 11; Mary, 10;
Julia, 7, and little Hannah More,
13 months, and all fine children,
let me tell you. They left their Los
Angeles home in an old boat that
went back on them up about Se
attle, so they sold it and bought a
tine Dodge truck, which carries
them nicely. Mr. Daugherty dabbles
in real estate in the California
wonder city, afld he will get back
irom here as soon as possible to
attend to business. .
From New York city came Mr.
and Mrs. S. A. Baker, with J. Farber.
Mr. Baker ' is an accountant and
Mr. Farber a tailor. They left the
big city 90 days ago, and have ex
plored all parts of the middle west.
From here they will go to the
Josephine caves, to Crater lake, and
then down to southern California
for . the winter.
"Out to be out wherever and
whenever the notion takes us," is
the motto of Mr. and Mrs. W. B

have been on the road. They do
not as yet know where they are

When the spirit moves them they
win move on somewhere.
From Casper, Wyo., came to the
camp Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Jones
after a month's travels from Casper

Man, Fugitive From Easby, N. D.,
Accused of Theft From Amer
ican Express Company.
Letters from his wife, urging him
to come Home and face his accusers
resulted in the arrest last night of
JS. L. Wolf, 27, of Easby, N. D., to
be held for the authorities there as
a fugitive from justice.
Inspectors Drennan and Davis met
Wolf and another man at Third and
Ankeny streets, arrested them on
suspicion and found I. W. W. liter
ature in their pockets? With that
for a pretext, both were taken to
inspectors' headquarters for ex
amination. Neither man would talk freely,
but when Drennan found letters
from Mrs. Wolf telling him that
detectives were watching the house
and that she wished he would re
turn and submit to arrest. Wolf
admitted that he had been a fugi
tive from Easby since last June.
Inspectors learned that Wolf had
been in the employ of the American
Express company there. He is said
to have owned up to the theft of
?200 In checks, which he cashed.
TIMBER TRANSFER MADE
Significance of Long-Bell Trans
action Not Disclosed.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or., Sept. 11.
(Special.) Transfer of timber lands
valued at $3,000,000 from the Long
Bell White Pine company to the
Long-Bell Lumber company was In
dicated in a deed filed with the
county clerk here this morning. The
deed covers all property of the
Long-Bell company in Klamath and
Lake counties, including 86,418 acres
of timber. In the absence of offi
cials of either concern it was im
passible to learn the significance of
One surmise of local timbermen
was that it was a transfer from the
holding corporation to the- operat
ing concern and foreshadowed a
movement to get timber blocked and
iu shape for manufacturing. An
other theory is that the southern
Oregon property is security for a
bond issue and the proceeds will be
used in financing operations at the
new Long-Bell plant at Kelso, Wash.
Steps were taken yesterday to be
gin a whirlwind drive to close up
the reservation list for the "1925
special," which will leave Portland
the l.ight of September 18, carrying
125 exros'tion enthusiasts on a mis
sion to eastern Oregon cities. Mayor
Baker, director-general of the ex
nnvltion ramDaien committee, and
Williai.i P. Merry, in charge of the
caravan, at a conference, decided
that the list could not be held open
longer for the convenience of busi
ness men who are trying to arrange
their affa;rg so that they might ac
company the excursion.
Saturday at noon was the time
fixed for closing the list and all
applications must be in at that hour.
This is necessary in order to give
the caravans-directors .nd railroad
company time in which to make
necessary arrangements, such as as
signments of berth locations, and
to close up all details of the trip.
More than one-half the reserva
tions have been taken and those in
charge express the belief that many
persons deciding at the last moment
to make the trip will be disap
pointed. MISS VAN KLEECK HEARD
