Soldiers Who Saved Union Grieved
and Surprised That a Minister of
the Qpspel Should Make
Slanderous Statements
Rev. James Edmunds, the Baptist Sun
day school missionary, of Oregon, resid
ing in Portland, has stirred up 'a hornet's
nest by his remarks before the Baptist
Convention of "Washington and Idaho,
held InSpokane, while delivering an ad
dress on "Mission to Childhood," by hla
references to the veterans of the Civil
"War. The veterans everywhere resent
tho Intimation that Rev. Mr. Edmunds
makes that they are a "whisky and tobacco-soaked
class," and the indication
are that he has gone Tip against a buzz
saw. Last night Sumner Post No. 12, G.
A. on the East Side, held a camp
fire, where Commander E. T. Hills, Chap
lain Henry E. Barden, and other promi
nent members of the Portland posts were
present.
Adopt Strong Resolutions.
" It was a season' of speeches and feast
ing on hot toffee, beans and other sub
stantial, In the course, of which the fol
lowing resolutions were read and
adopted:
Whereas. The Rev. James Edmunds, a
Baptist missionary, is reported to have
made the following fling at the veterans
of the Civil War in his address before tho
Washington and North Idaho Convention,
In Spokane, in speaking on "Mission of
Childhood," said:
"An educational conscience would revo
lutionize our present method of teaching
patriotism by means of martial songs and
parades. To shoulder a gun and go out
and shoot somebody is now held to be the
acme of patriotism.
"And we hold up veterans who come
back and dissipate themselves with drink
and riotous living as tho .model of patriot
ism when they march In procession. My
father was a soldier in the Civil War, but
the day has gone past when I will .hurrah
for a parade of veterans steeped in to
bacco and whisky.
"If the church had an educational con
science which would induce us to hold up
men like Folk of Missouri, who has stood
for purity and against graft. Instead of
these polluted veterans, we would have a
much higher standard of patriotism."
Whereas. Wc express our amazement at
tho statement made in the foregoing quo
tation from a minister of a denomination
that has always been foremost in honor
ing the veterans of the Civil -War, and
cannot allow such statement to pass un
noticed, delivered as it was before a con
vention of that denomination, but In our
reply we do not intimate that the Baptists
are In any way responsible for the uncalled-for
utterances of Rev. Mr. Ed
munds; :
Whereas. We deny most vigorously that
the veterans of the Civil-War hold up war
as the symbol of all honor and patriotic
virtue, but on the contrary the Grand
Army of the Republic teaches that peace
Is the highest aim and purpose of the Na
tion, and the statement In the foregoing
by the Rev. Mr. Edmunds that "to shoul
der a gun and shoot somebody is consid
ered the acme of patriotism, is wholly
without foundation. This organization de
nounces that statement as an insult to
the Civil War veterans of .the whole coun
try, and proclaims the ignorance of the
Rev. Mr. Edmunds of the principles of
the G. A. R.. and distorts the very ob
jects for which the soldiers and volunteers
fought they fought for peace;
Whereas, We hold further that the
marching of the battle-scarred -veterans
on public occasions, to martial music, with
halting and tottering footsteps, teaches
respect for the defenders of the Union,
and in no way cultivates a spirit of war
in the Nation we all love: the veterans
have taught patriotism In the public
schools of the land by erection of monu
ments, by the beautiful Memorial day
ceremonies by which the honored dead are
remembered, by placing the National col
ors on every public schoolhouse of the
Nation; but public addresses In the in
terests of peace and quiet, by act and
deed, and hence we repel the Insinuation
that we teach war and Its attendant hor
rors to tho young children of this coun
try: WherPas, As Rev. Mr. Edmunds Inti
mates that tho veterans of the Civil War
are a dissipated lot. we denounce this
statement as most outrageous and untrue,
and as an insult to the intelligence of the
American people. While It is true that
a small portion of the "boys in blue"
contracted the habit of drink and using
tobacco while on the firing line In defense
of the Union, it is not true that they,
as a rule, are a dissipated class of men,
but on the contrary, some of the ablest
and brightest and purest men this Nation
has produced are Civil War veterans; and
at the last Grand Encampment, held In
Denver, where the flower of the Grand
Army of the Republic was gatherod from
all the state, not a single Intoxicated vet
eran was seen of the 10,000 gathered In
that city during the sessions; therefore,
be It
Resolved. By the members of Sumner
Post, No. 12, G. A. R.. in campfire assem
bled. That we repel the Insinuations that
Rev. James Edmunds, the son of a worthy
veteran, that the veterans are not worthy
the respect of the Nation as examples of
patriotic devotion to the country shown on
the hundreds of battle-fields, or that the
tattered and trembling feet of the veterans
s they march to Jhe cemeteries to honor
the dead, are examples of corruption, pol
lution and dissipation; and hereby express
our amazement that the son of a veteran
shoiild have given utterance to such senti
ments as are quoted In the foregoing ex
tract. Commander Hills Speaks.
Following the reading of the resolutions
Chairman C. J. Ward called on Depart
ment Commander T. E. Hills, who spoke
with much feeling In defense of the vet
erans maligned" by Rev. Mr. Edmunds.
"My observation has been," said Com
mander Hill, "that the -veterans of the
Civil War, as a class, are not dissipated.
We have shown to the world that we are
a sober and Industrious lot, and I believe,
that, man to man, the G. A. R. veterans'
will compare favorably with any of the
citizens of the Nation. I attended the
Denver encampment," and out o the 93,000
veterans who were there I never saw an
Intoxicated man. There may have been
some Intoxication, but I saw none of it In
that great gathering. In intelligence,
mental grasp and sobriety. I think that
body would compare favorably with any
body of the sort in the world. I don't say
that none of the veterans drink, for some
do to excess: but as a class they are sober
and loyal citizens."
Chaplain Barden's Tribute.
Following came a fine and eloquent trib
ute to the -veterans of the G. A. R. from
Department Chaplain Rev. Henry E. Bar
den, who declared that Rev. James Ed
munds, who had traduced the veterans of
the Civil War, was not a Baptist and had
never been ordained as a Baptist minister.
He said that the veterans as a class were
loyal and law-abiding citizens, and full of
patriotism, and denounced in strongest
terms the characterization of, tfe veterans
by Rev. Mr. Edmunds as most untrue and
unworthy the son of a veteran.
Remarks were made by G. E. Caukln.
M. L. Pratt, Comrade Lemons (of Hunt
ington), I. MeGowan, F. RNeale and
others, and the Rev. James ZMmunte re-
TRYING TO HEAL SPLIT
Negotiations for 3fergcr of Ttlval
Livestock Associations.
DENVER, Oct. 2L Tho proposition to
amalgamate the National Livestock As
sociation and the American Stockgrowers'
Association on a basis that would also
dispose of the much mooted question of
representation of the packing, railroad
and commission house interests, was
taken up at the Joint conference of
the executive committees of the two or
ganizations at the Brown Palace Hotel
yesterday. A plan outlined by a sub
committee was voted down after a some
what extended discussion and the sub
committee instructed to make another
effort to formulate a plan that would be
acceptable to all interests. The sub
committee will report again today.
The report, which was defeated yester
day, recommended that the National Live
stock Association be changed to National
Livestock Committee, consisting or repre
sentatives of tho producers of livestock.
This committee would In turn appoint
committees on railroads, packing houses,
commission houses, eta, which would give
those interests a representation and a
right to be heard whenever they" felt the
need of expression. "'The report recom
mended that the American Stockgrowers
become known as the American Cattle
growers' Association, with a membership
ponslsting of cattle, horses and swino
growers. The sheep men, tho report sug
gested, should affiliate with tho American
Woolgrowers Association.

S OPPOSED TO IT
Judge Webster Objects to the
Bridge Advertisements.
HE GIVES HIS REASONS
An Injunction May Be Sought to
" Prevent the Execution --"br the
Contract Entered Into by
-County Commissioners.
"I am opposed to advertising signs' on
the draw rests of the bridges, and always
have been," said Judge Webster, yester
day. "The contract was agreed upon by
County 'Commissioners LIghtncr and
Barnes, while I -was absent from the city.
Therms are several reasons why I am op
posed to It. The county does not need
the money. A small sum. such as 5500, is
of little consequence. Another thing. If
It Is advisable to let a contract of this
kind, the county ought to get as much
as It can for It, everybody should be
given a chance to bid, and it ought not
to be granted to the first person that
comes along."
The privilege was awarded to Allan R
Joy, attorney, who recently became tho
law partner of United States Senator
John H. 'Mitchell. Mr. Joy does not pro
nose to engage in the advertising busi
ness. He has not divulged the name- of
his principals, but is supposed to be work
ing in the Interest of the billboard trust.
The Taxpayers' League and Chamber of
Commerce organizations protested against
the letting of the contract, and an In
junction suit may be brought by those
opposed to the scheme, and who are work
ing in the Interest of civic improvement.
There Is little doubt but what an injunc
tion would lie, it Is urged, as the juris
diction of the County Commissioners'
Codrt over bridges and ferries is to op
erate and maintain them, and not to let
contracts to have them plastered with un
sightly advertising placards.

GEORGE E. JABOUR AND MISS JULIA MOUTRAN WHO WILL BE MARRIED
With the closing or the Trail at the Lewis and Clark ExposIUon. the last chapter of George E. Jabour's career
as a. showman has come to an end. -jeorge "E. Jabour has been Jn the show business ever since he was a young man.
and It is. with surprise that his friends learn that this veteran showman, known all over the United States, is to
forsake the business VJth which he has been associated for so many years.
"When one stops to consider the source of this determination on Ihe part of GcorgoE. Jabour. the change docs
not appear to be so extraordinary.' Financial reasons have had nothing to do with it, but, of course, it Wall the work
of , Cupid, which has been hovering over tho Trail magnate for sometime, and at last has cast his shadow over him.
Tonight ho .gracefully accepts the yoke of matrimony, at the same time saying good-bye forever to the show busi
ness, with aU of Its charms and attractions. The bride is Miss Julia Moutran, a beautiful and accomplished Syrian, and
it is she who Insisted upon Mr. Jabour leaving .the show business. (
It was oniy accomplished after a long, hard struggle, in which love came to the top., as it usually does. Mr.
Jabour and Miss Moutran have been deeply attached to each other for sometime, but the young lady in quesUon refused
to become his wife until lie gave her assurances to quit the show business for. good and for alL After much consid
eration, and not without a struggle, Mr. Jabour consented. The happy couple will be married tonight in the parlors .
of the "Washington Hotel, Tenth and Washington streets. They wHl make their home here, and Mr. Jabour will shortly
engage In business In Portland. ,

HOME FOR ITS MIES
OREGON HISTORICAL. SOCIETY MAY
MOVE TO EUGENE.
President Younsr Favors This Flan, 1
FerBiaBeat Building- Is Not to
Be Erected In Portland.
If the wishes of some of the members
of the Oregon Historical Society bear
fruit Portland and the stockholders of
the'1 Lewis and Clark Fair will have no
further cause to worry about the me
morial hall and the home for the ex
hibits and collections of the Oregon
Historical Society. The newest plan,
and one that Is fostered by President
F. G. Young-, of the State University at
Eugene, and at the same time the sec
retary of the society. Is to erect a li
brary building at the university and in
It provide for he arrangement and
bousing of the property of the society.
It Is understood that Professor
Young- would not advocate such a
course were a building to be provided
In Portland for the collections now in
the keeping of the society, but ho
takes the ground that some place must
be prepared, that the City Hall is a
temporary place and inadequate, and
that In other states the historical socie
ties usually have their headquarters at
the State Universities for tho benefit of
the students of those Institutions.
Professor Young Is not the only
member of the scolety who Is In favor j
of making the change, so It Is said, but
a great many of those who live In
Portland are willing to see the transfer
made. If It will give added care to
those relics which have been collected
at so much labor and cost.
Tho members of tlie society, do many
of them as have expressed their opin
ions on the subject, are not In favor
of placing the archives of the society In
the Forestry building. They take tho
stand that the building has served Its
purpose during tho Fair, and that It is
not permanent and not a proper place
In which to Btore the possessions of the
Historical Society.
Those who are In favor of purchasing
a park are making but little outward
showing, though hey may be at work
silently. It Is understood that the Port
land Consolidated Street Railway Com
pany has offered Xo uell a piece of
ground to the city, adjacent to tho
grounds surrounding the Forestry
building, for J5Q00 less than its market
value, provided the State "Commission
will fulfill the requirements of the law
nnd erect a memorial building upon the
land.

no one was killed.
Of the injured, only 13 were serious
ly enough hurt to be taken to l.e
