TACOMA, Wash., Oct, 56. (Special.)
Tlrt. D. L. Radar, of Portland, Is In hot
water today over utterances in a lecture
last night, when he ad he would not al
io his children to go to school with Jap
anese children, because they have no
conception of what. Is morally' right or
wrong. He declared that It Is not really
their fault, for ;the custom has -come
down to them from generations past.

Superintendent of Schools Yoder. sev
eral of the principals and the, ministers
unite In saying they have never found
a .piore quiet, orderly class of. scholars
than the young Japanese In our schools.
They obey explicitly what is told them,
are, bright and learn rapidly, . do not
bother anybody, and are well behaved.
Dr. Rader's statement is declared to be
ridiculous and unfair.
H. Takinshi. graduate of Princeton Uni
versity, after ire had gone through th
colleges In his own country and who has
a chain of Oriental stores- along the
coast, has two children attending the pub
li schools. He said today:
"Dr. Rader's statement is based on
prejudice. He does not know the Jap
anese people or he would not have talked
that way. His remarks grew out of
hatred for us, and he will regret them."
Rev. D. L. Rader Is editor of the Paelflo
Christian Advocate, which Is the official
organ of the Methodist Episcopal
Church in the Northwest. He was elected
tosithls position at the General Confer
ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church
three years ago at Los Angeles. He
made a tour of Japan about a year ago
for the benefit of his health. Previous to
his election to the editorship of the Chris

Dear Sir: Pursuant to your commu
nication dated September .23, this Com
mission made the investigation of the
fuel shortage in' Eastern Oregon.
The Oregon Railroad . & Navigation
Company had their agents make a
canvass of the district as early as July.
There being In effect a rate of $7 per ton
on. .coal from the Missouri River to points
in Eastern Oregon, their reports . did . not
show a shortage and the officials be
lieved there was no shortage and, fSey
could supply all demands.
This Commission sent the enclosed
letter (regarding slabwood supply) to 66
mills throughout the Willamette Valley,
receiving replies from ten mills, only one
of which had wood to spare and his price
was 31.25 per" cord. The quantity being
so small this Commission did not feel
warranted In - asking the railroad com
panies to put ' In Joint rates.
Nearly -all .the mills that replied com
plained of not. getting cars to handle
Uielr local" orders for wood. They in
wred that the proposed raise in the
Wistern lumber rate; coupled with the
scarcity of cars for- Interstate shipments,
made their future: operations too uncer
tain for them to consider business such
as. this Commission suggested.

Accused Man Prominent in Business

Ttt'XDBE, Or.. Oct 26. (Special.) G. A.
Crawford, of this city, declares that a
recent published statement from Newberg
that R. C. Crosby was an object of sus
picion to his neighbors, does a gross Injustice-
to the accused, who Is yet to be'
jroven guilty of the charges against him.
"Mr. Oosby is the son of a wealthy
Massachusetts man, and it is not un
natural for him to have had liberal aid
from his father," says Mr. Crawford.
"Mr. Crosby has always in his long
residence here been highly respected. He
has done much for Newberg and com
munity In a business and social way. He
has patronized Newberg banks, taken lib
eral shares in her Industries, and recently
established a first-class milk route In the
town. At this time It seems Indeed a
great Injustice to the already sorrowing
family that such derogatory statements,
should be published."

Whitman County Grand Jury Then
Adjourns Until November 4.
COLFAX, Wash., Oct. 26. (Special.)
The Whitman County grand jury
handed Judge Chadwlck one true bill
tonight and then adjourned until No
vember 4. Rumor has it that Prosecut
ing Attorney Kipp has been held on
charges of graft. All but four of the
17 members of the grand jury are
farmers who have a large amount of
work to be done at home.
Two important cases before the
grand Jury, Involving Pullman City
and its alleged illegal voters, brought
most of Pullman's business men to
Colfax today. Among the witnesses
were Professors Thatcher and Fullmer,
of the Washington State College; At
torney G. S. Jamar, challenger for the
Law Enforcement League last election;
Undertaker J. W. Palmerton, acting
Deputy Sheriff, who has prevented
from arresting voters; J. W. Matthews,
ex-Prosecuting Attorney; E. B. Holt,
ex-City Marshal, and J E. Nessley,
The second Pullman case is before
Judge Chadwlck In the Superior Court.
The Law Enforcement League is at
tempting to prove that the registering
of city voters under the new ward or
dinance will cause an illegal election.
