PURE WINE BILL
That Is the Object of the Man
ufacturers. EAST AND WEST AGREED
Committee From the Atlantic Sea
board Meets With a Gommittce
Kcprcscntlng California Grow
ers to Formulate Plan.
The Eastern, wine representatives of
the American Winegrowers' Associa
tion, who have been visiting the vine
yards and wlnerlos of California, ar
rived In the city today. The member
ship of this association includes prac
tically all of the largost and leading
wine companies of the United States.
The purpose of the visit of the East
ern men, who formed a committee, was
to confer with a committee from the
California Vltlcultural Club about a
National pure wine bill, and about the
ways and means for promoting the In"
creased consumption of pure Ameri
can wines. The association sent its
leading members on the committee,
which consisted of the following rep
resentatives: Edward R. Emerson,
president of the association, and presi
dent of the Brotherhood Wine Co., of
New York; F. N. P.andhJJ, president of
the Chautauqua Wine Co.; Jules
Crance, of the Urbana Wine Co., and
Lee J. Vance, secrotary of the associa
tion, and publisher of the American
Wine Press, New York-
The California committee consisted
of Percy T. Morgan, president Of the
California Wlno Association; P. C Ros
si, president of the Italian-Swiss Col
ony, and Professor E. H. Twlght, of
the University of California
Work of Committee. ,
Speaking of the meeting of the two
committees. Secretary Vance said:
"We believe that we have accom
plished an important work, for th
whole American wine industry. For
the first time all of the different ele
ments in the wine trade hax'o'tsome to
gether, and from now on have agreed
tst put new life into the business.
"At our last meeting in San Fran
cisco a few days ago our committee
approved of the rough draft of a pure
wine bill. The public will be quick to
respond to our efforts to put on the
market and to sell to consumers pure
wines only. Of course the people who
will oppose us will be the adultera
tors and makers bf imitation and
spuriouB wines.
"Another important thing will be
our propaganda ancf campaign of pub
licity for introducing pure wines. The
members of our association have
agreed upon plans to support such a
campaign, which will not be for ono
year, but during a series of years. All
that we need Is to got the American
people to try our good wines In order
to make them more of a wine-drinking
people, all of which would be con
ducive to temperance and sobriety."
Praise for California.
In conclusion Mr Yence said:
"Speaking for the T.ier members of
the committee, we have only words or
praise for the splendid reception we
received -while in California. From
A2 day we arrived fix Los Aceles to

Portland; G. E. Hatch, of Salem, and C.
E. Finch, of Pendleton
our meeting In San Francisco, aside
from our business, w were shown that
open-hearted hospitality for which our
friends are noted. The fine wines
whloh were served at the banquets
were striking proof of the high qual
ity which California wines have now
attained. The makers of such fine
wines may well be proud of their suc
cess in producing vintages which in
every respect rival the foreign brand
of wines. This, however, was no sur
prise to me. for as a member of the
international Jury at Paris in lt. and
again at St. Louis in 1964. I had oc
casion to see how favorably our Amer
ican wines and champagnes compared
with European wines. The consump
tion of American wines has been in
creasing: at a rapid rate of late years,
and we look to see' even greater in
crease in the near future.'

Old Men Declare That They Will

Hordes of men want commissions as
special policemen from the Lane admin

practically all of the former members of
the force will be "let out." This will be
done, it Is thought. In order that places
may be made for others, preferably

Members or the "special" force as now
comprised, deolarc that they will put up a
hot fight for their present positions, and
that they will refuse to comply with a
set of rules and regulations, now being
drawn, which are said to be so drastic
that they would destroy the relations ex
isting between the special policeman and
his customers, as under them written re
ports of the moneys collected from each
man or ttrm In the various districts are
required from the officers.

Shoulder to shoulder, with the vim
and vigor of seasoned veterans, cheer
ing lustily and proudly waving .their
banners in the air. 3000 Modern Wood
men of America marched through the
downtown streets at 8:30 o'clock last

packed with members of tho order, and
the smaller halls and corridors were
filled to the walls with shouting. Jubi

With but little delay, the mombers
of the order were formed Into inarch
ing line In Tenth street, and with fly
ing' colors and to the inspiring music
of SU John's Camp Band, the column
of Woodmen began their triumphant
march through the downtown' thor
oughfares. Take Up tho March.
With Major -W. T. Vaughn at their
head, sitting proudly on his prancing
charger, and Assistant Marshals 7. D.
Rennlson, A. E. McMonnles and H. E.
Manning dashing bravely along- the
lines, the Woodmen, to the cheering of
the crowds, took -up their march.
From the Armory down Tenth street
to Morrison, the lusty Woodmen
trudged, cheering, singing and other
wise making known to the world- that
they were glad tbey were members of

"Column left," came the order at
Tenth and Morrison streets, and the
column filed Into the latter thorough
fare and began Its march into the
heart ofthe city. Down Morrison
street to Fourth, and then "column
left" again, and the marchers swung
sprlnglly into the latter street, and
wended their way to Taylor street.

Gentlemen: Five of your No. 4 machines have been in constant use-
in our typewriting department for the past six months. Not one of them
has given us the slightest trouble, and they are all in perfect condition today.
We find that "visible writing" results in more work in & given time,
with less fatigue to the operator, and have decided to add to our equip
ment accordingly. Please "blind" the keys for the "touch" method, and
deliver at once 10 additional machines of your latest No. 4 make. We. .
shall soon be able to meet all your many calls for stenographers who are
skilled in the use of the Underwood Typewriter. .

turned again and marched to Sixth
street, ana than with a right swlngr
marehed to Burnside street, where the
men countermarched to Washington
street, out that thoroughfare to Tenth
street, where the Woodmen again
turned their faces toward the Armory,
and arriving there, disbanded.
Although the streets along the line
of march were not so brilliantly light
ed as usual, because of the failure of
electric power, the marchers made a
bravo showing as they swung along
to the clapping: and shouting: of hun
dreds of men. women and children. The
usual Saturday night crowds were
augmented by thousands, because of
the Woodmen celebration, and owing
to the good work of the police along
the line of march, the people were ex- I
ccptlonally well handled. j

Exposition grounds yesterday afternoon ',

marchers disbanded and took part In the
Initiation of a class of more than 73 can
didates, who were enlightened In the ways
of woodcraft, and who also did a few
funny .stunts with the "goat." Fremont
