Prohibitionists of Oregon yesterday
concluded a two days' session at the
Y. M. C. A. auditorium with the nomi
nation of a state ticket. Not having
polled 25 per cent of the votes cast for
Congressmen at the last election, the
Prohibitionists are not bound by all
of the terms of the primary law of
Oregon, and it is probable that the
Secretary of State will certify their
nominations on the official ballot for
the Fall election without other formal
ity. But the Prohibition state com
mittee will take no chances In the
year 1910, when the leaders predict
such a sweeping wave of sentiment for
state-wide prohibition, and have de
cided to get out a nominating peti
tion In addition.
The nominations were greeted with
the wildest enthusiasm, especially the
name of the standard-bearer at the
head of the fight, A. E. Eaton. Mr.
Eaton is an influential citizen of East
ern Oregon, described as a Daniel Web
ster on the stump, and having acquired
merit by presenting Willamette Uni
versity with a $50,000 building. N. A.
Davis, of Umatilla, and Leslie Butler,
of Hood River, are bankers.
The campaign will be In charge of
a state central committee, of which J.
P. Newell was elected chairman. W. E.
Critchlow, secretary, and B. Lee Paget,
treasurer. The state central committee
la not confined to counties, but is made
up of party members In various towns
of the state.
Leslie Butler, of Hood River, pre
sided over the convention and V . E.
'Critchlow was the secretary"
Hotel Gage Taken Up.
The only fight on the floor of the
convention was over the report of the
committee on resolutions and platform,
as prepared by I. H. Amos, C. J. Bright
and W. P. Elmore. The platform was
Intended to carry the fight directly Into
the camp of the Greater Oregon Home
Rule Association, under which the
hotelmen of the state are gathering
to give battle to the dry advocates.
The resolution characterizes hotel grills
and the "glided, high-toned saloons" as
more dangerous than the dives.
An effort was made to eliminate or
tone down the language, as being more
proper for the stump, but an impas
sioned speech from W. P. omore, can
didate for Congress, carried the report
through aa written. "I be.ieve in say
ing Just what we mean in this cam
paign," said Mr. Elmore, and he seemed
to have struck the popular chord. A
resolution was immediately adopted
pledging all Prohibitionists to sign
"Oregon Dry in 1910" on every hotel
"register where they are quartered until
after the coming election.
"The Prohibitionists recognize the
hotelmen's organization as the strong
est opposition we have to overcome,"
aid I. H. Amos, "and we had just as
well let them know how many of their
patrons are fighting. It may cause
some of them to weaken."
After a lengthy discussion the bank
ers succeeded in eliminating an in
dorsement of the Oklahoma bank guar
antee idea. B. Lee Paget lea the oppo
sition to that feature of the platform
of the National party.
The platform Is as follows:
Rational Platform Indorsed.
We, the Prohibition party of Oregon,
in convention assembled, this 11th day
of June, 1910, do most earnestly com
mend to the voters of the state the
declaration of principles of the Prohi
bition party of the United States, as
sembled in convention at Columbus,
Ohio, July 1, 1908. as an eminently
wise and comprehensive statement of
the reforms for which our party from
the beginning has steadfastly con
tended. We greatly rejoice at the
mighty progress which these reforms
are steadily making and we look for
ward to a day not far distant.
When, by amendment of our National
Constitution, and the election of the
party in sympathy therewith, the bev
erage liquor traffic shall forever cease
from our land;
When the revenue now wrung from
the liquor traffic at such frightful cost
shall give place to revenue arising
from equitable graduated income and
inheritance taxes;
When child labor shall cease in
mines, workshops and factories;
When the laws governing marriage
and divorce shall be alike In all states;
When suffrage shall be based on in
telliKence and not on sex;
When the Government, with1 a firm
hand, shall regulate all corporations
doing an Interstate commerce business;
When, through the creation of a
permanent commission, the tariff shall
cease to be a scourge in the hands of
pampered and protected interests;
When arbitrary decisions of the
postal and other departments shall be
subject to court review;
When United States Senators shall be
eleced by direct vote of the people;
When the mineral and forest re
sources of the country shall no longer
be exploited in the tnterest of plunder
ing corporations:
When the money of the people shall

may not be brought Into disrepute by
lax enforcement, we hold It to be our
duty to nominate for every office with
in the gift of the people, candidates
who, if elected, can be depended upon
for strict law enforcement. Con
scientious and consistent action on the
part of those who cast their ballots
for state-wide prohibition, which we
have a right to aak and expect, will
unquestionably place in. power the Pro
hibition party which In itself will
sound the death-knell of the liquor
traffic of the state, whether state
wide prohibition carries or not.
We note with no little interest the
unwonted activity of the various liquor
dealers- organizations in a movement
for betterment of saloons. With this
movement we perhaps might sympa
thize, did we not know that the better
the saloon the greater its possibilities
for Injury. It is not in the low dive
that the young manhood and young
womanhood of our country strikes the
toboggan slide for degradation and
death. It is in the hotel grill and the
gilded high-toned saloon that the
downward course is begun. The low
dive is simply the landing place on the
way to the morgue and the drunkard's

Strike That Has Lasted II Days
Seems as Far From Settle
ment as Ever.
The Teamsters' Union has been on
strike 11 days and the situation is
practically unchanged. No negotiations
looking to a. settlement are pending,
and each aide is holding aloof from the
other. The Draymen's Association
makes the positive assertion that it
will not grant the demands of the
union, and the union Is Just as positive
in its stand that no union teamsters
will go to work until all demands are
granted. No compromise offers have
been made and the opposing forces are
as far apart as when the . strike was
declared. June 1.
The union says it has 300 teamsters
on strike and the majority of these are
on picket duty.- As fast-as the Dray.
men's Association placed non-union
men in charge of its teams the union
pickets persuaded them to quit. No
perceptible progress has been made by
either side, but in the meantime con
struction of several large buildings
has been retarded for the lack of steel.
In some Instances the Draymen's Asso
ciation has been unable to make de
liveries and In others contractors have
refused to accept deliveries made by
non-union men for fear of Involving the
building trades union in the fight.
The headquarters of the Teamsters
Union was thrown Into a furore of ex
citement yesterday afternoon when
several merchants called up and asked
If the strike had been declared off. The
merchants reported that they had re
ceived word from the Draymen's Asso
ciation that the teamsters would all
report for duty Monday morning as in
dividuals and under the open-shop pol
icy. The union immediately sent out
emissaries to deny the report. The an
nouncement from union headquarters
was also made that no settlement had
been effected and that the union team
sters would not report for work Monday
except on the terms demanded.
Wanderer Doesn't Know How He

Fisher disappeared from his home on
the night of April 17. For nine days
thereafter he wandered, eating, sleep

came to himself at noon of April 26,

stream in Cuba, 40 miles west from
He had no recollection of -what had
taken place since he had left his home.
When he tried to talk with men who
gathered about him, some of them were
negroes, and found that they spoke a
strange tongue and could not under
stand him, he believed he was the vic
tim of a hallucination.
But when the word "Cuba" was re
peated often it dawned upon him that
he was on that island. He realized
he must have traveled to New York or
Florida and taken passage for Cuba,
but how he did not know. After eating

Havana. There he told his strange

Mirth of Undergraduates Detracts From. Solemnity of Ce remony, Coaf errjng Degree on ex-President, and at Its
Close "Teddy" Bear Is Dangled Before Him From Gallery.
CAMBRIDGE. May 26. (Special.)
Theodore Roosevelt told the under
graduates of Cambridge University
today that no ex-President of the United
States had ever had a better time than
he. He certainly had a good time among
the - undergraduates and the dons of
Cambridge. And he has been having
a delightful time personally during
most of his stay in England. That it
has not been a good time officially
was due to the unhappy conditions
which have sobered all England and
made the thoughts of the whole world
turn to the English people In sym
pathy. Such distinction as was possible un
der the conditions has been conferred
on him. After King Edward's funeral
he was received by Queen Alexandra
at .Buckingham Palace, and in a long
conversation she thanked him for the
sympathy of the American people. He
has dined with some of the most fa
mous of the big game hunters and lit
erary men in London. He has been
received .by King George and Queen
Marj-NHe has been made an honorary
member of the Royal Society of Arts.
And today he received from the Uni
versity of Cambridge an honorary de-,
gree. and from the undergraduate's of
the university unmistakable evidences
of appreciation and regard. If any
thing interferes with the "perfectly
corking" time which Mr. Roosevelt us
ually has under such conditions. It was
the cold which still clings to him.
Mr. Roosevelt arrived at the little
Cambridge station on one of the reg
ular trains. He was accompanied hj
Mrs. Roosevelt and Mrs. Longworth.
Kermit and Ethel Roosevelt have gone
to Scotland sightseeing. Mr. Roosevelt
was met at the station by Canon Ma
son, the vice-chancellor of the univer
sity, and his wife. Canon Mason wore
cap and gown, w.hile Mr. Roosevelt was
dressed in the conventioual frock coat
and silk hat. The meeting was quite
informal and there was only a small
crowd at the station to cheer him. He
was taken directly to Canon Mason's
home 'in Pembroke College and took
luncheon there.
The first duty- he performed after
luncheon was to go to Emanuel College,
of which John Harvard had been a
student. He did this in honor of his
own alma mater, which Harvard
founded. Then he was taken to the
Senate Hall, on King's Parade, to re
ceive his degree.
The Senate Hall is not large and
there had been a great demand for
tickets to witness the ceremony. Those
who could not obtain tickets gathered
on the street In front of the hall and
a squad of policemen very politely kept
order. The crowd was as dignified
as one would expect in a university
town. The crowd stood In the street.
The sidewalk was kept quite clear.
Meantime, picturesquely gowned un
dergraduates and dons entered the hall
some in crimson gowns, some in
gowns of black silk often very much
frayed: some in gowns trimmed with
what looked like white catfur. The
undergraduates in their mortar-boards
and scant little gowns of rusty black,
had been admitted early to the gal
leries. Just before 3 o'clock a squad of po
lice marched through the Btreet clear
ing the way. Behind came two beadles,
bearing aloft silver sticks. Behind
them came Theodore Roosevelt in cap
and crimson gown, escorted by Canon
Mason. It was not a very impressive
spectacle, because Mr. Roosevelt and
his host were chatting away as cheer
fully and Informally as though they
had been going to a garden party.
As to the ceremony of investiture, it
lost something of solemity through the
irreverance of the undergraduates..
When Mr. Roosevelt had been escorted
through the Senate House, he was
seated facing the platform, and Im
mediately after he had been greeted by
Dr. Sandys, the public orator of the
university. Dr. Jackson, the senior

proctor, began the ceremony with
prayer. But the recital of the formal
service demanded that at intervals he
should raise his cap and make obeis
ance. He did this mechanically, swiftly
but each obeisance was greeted by
the undergraduates with half-suppressed
mirth and applause. Theae un
dergraduates completely filled the two
long sides of the gallery and hung over
its railing. At the ends were seated
guests many of them ladies who
seemed to find as much entertainment
in the undergraduates' larks as In the
ceremony on the floor below.
When grace had been said. Dr.
Sandys read an address in Latin, rehearsing-
the deeds of Mr. Roosevelt
during his period as President, his hunt
in Africa and even his tour of Europe
with appreciative demonstrations by
the undergraduates. Mr. Roosevelt
stood while the degree was being con
ferred and then took a seat on the plat
form while degrees were conferred on
others. There were cries of "speech"
from the galleries as the cermony was
concluded, but Mr. Roosevelt did not
respond. ,
The "teddy bear" took a lively part
in the day's proceedings. The under
graduates chose It as their medium for
having a little fun with tfle university's
guest. At Emanuel College, It con
fronted Mr. Roosevelt with paw out
stretched, as he passed through the
quadrangle. At the Senate House, It
dropped from the gallery as he was
leaving the building and dangled for
a moment before his face. Then, con
trolled by a string in the hands of the
irrepressible undergraduates, it began
at the capitol in the presence of King
Victor Emmanuel.
Cardinal Merry del Val, who Is par
ticularly bitter against the reigning
King of Italy, branded his Majesty in
a memorable official document of pro
test, which he issued from the Vati
can, as a "usurper" of the Pope's civil
principality. Count Saleml sought an
Interview with the Papal Secretary in
order to explain his. acceptance of the
municipal Invitation, but as Cardinal
Merry del Val refused to see him.
Prince Rospigiosi. commander-in-chief
of the noble guard, recognizing that a
gross injustice had been done, applied
personally for an audience with the
Spanish Cardinal, who bluntly declined
to receive him also.
Hence the ferment among the 126
Papal soldiers, who have forwarded a
round robin to Pope Pius X. Count
Saleml recently married the Baroness
Gertrude, daughter of Baron Frederich
von Hugel. the well known modernist
to bob up and down and smite the bald
heads of the serious dons. This, by
the way, was a very mild hazing for
Mr. Roosevelt. But for the universal
mourning which has affected all col
lege arrangements, Mr. Roosevelt
would have had a much livelier time.
From the Senate House, Mr. Roose
velt was escorted by Canon Mason to
the beautiful old church of King's Col
lege, and to the other colleges, arriving
a little after 4 o'clock at Trinity,
where he was the guest of the master.
Dr. Butler. His reception there was the
occasion for a bit of archaic ceremonial
of a most picturesque character. Trin
ity is the one college at Cambridge
which belongs to the Crown. If the
King should visit Cambridge, Dr. But
ler would be turned out of the Master's
House or would become the King's
guest there; for the Master's House at
Trinity is really the King's house. In
the same way, the Master's House could
be claimed by the presiding Judge at
Cambridge as the King's representa
tive. When the Judge called to meet
Mr. Roosevelt, therefore, he was pre
ceded by two heralds in light blue and
gold, who stationed themselves in a
corner of the quadrangle. The judge
entered, not by the southern gateway
which is never opened except for roy
alty, but by the picturesque old thir
teenth century gateway at the East.
Preceded by two beadles with staffs,
announced by the trumpets of the her
alds, he marched across the quadrangle
and was met half way by the master,
who welcomed him to the King's House.
Their conversation, however, was not
ceremonial. It was a very common
place greeting followed by: "Is Mr.
Roosevelt here?"
Among the comments of those who
attended the master's tea, I heard:
"His teeth are certainly conspicuous."
But this was not made within hearing
of Mr. Rosevelt, who Is, I believe, a
little sensitive on that point.
From Trinity, Mr. Roosevelt went to
Union, where he drank tea with the
boys and told them what a good time
he was having. Incidentally, he de
livered the little sermon without which
a Roosevelt speech would be incomplete.

Crater Lake Among Those on
Which Congress Economizes.
Representative Hawley Takes Occa
sion to Advertise Reserve, Against
That Time When Legislative
Body Is More Liberal. .
ington, June 9. Until the sate of the
Federal Treasury Is such that rigid
economy is no longer an absolute- ne
cessity, there Is little prospect that
liberal appropriations can be secured
for the improvement of the National
parks of the West.
This session, while every effort is be
ing made to economize, the parks are
being slighted, and only enough money
is being allowed, as a rule, to maintain
and patrol parks already created. The
Crater Lake Park, along with others.
Is being slighted, for the sundry civil
bill carries ,only $3000, where $25,000
could readily be expended In the next
year to good advantage.
While the sundry civil bill was be
fore the House. Representative Haw
ley made a brief appeal for an increase
of this appropriation, but none was
granted. Mr. Hawley. nevertheless, im
proved his opportunity to advertise the
Crater Lake Park, and to place on rec
ord data that will be available when
ever Congress is In a more liberal
More Money Xeeded.
In the course of his appeal for an
Increased appropriation, he said:
"This appropriation ought to be ma
terially increased. For many years
numbers of people have visited this
place which sublimely discloses the
craftsmanship of the Creator, and in
recent years many have camped for a
time within lta confines. While some
of the places of interest have been
made accessible, a great many are ap
proachable only with great difficulty.
Crater Lake is a large body of water
situated within the crater of an ex
tinct volcano, and with the surrounding
country is a scene of great magnifi
cence and beauty.
"If It were located in the Alps of
Switzerland, instead of the Alps of Ore
gon, it would have a world-wide and
an Immortal fame. The lake and moun
tain scenery with which It is associated
attract a constantly Increasing number
of visitors, and there is a steadily
growing demand that the means of ac
cess be made to correspond to the needs
of travel. The present small annual
appropriation provides for Utile mote

"Recently the Southern Pacific Railroad
has constructed a line from Weed to
Klamath Falls, and Is extending this
northward into what is understood to be
the main line of its road from San Fran
cisco to Portland. This line will run
close to the park. There is active con
struction of additional railroad facilities
in that portion of the state. This and
the fact that the Legislature recently ap
propriated a large sum for the construc
tion of roads to the park is indicative
of the Interest in the. place and empha
sizes the necessity Mr the construction
of an adequate system of roads and trails
and of safe brieves. For these purposes
an additional appropriation will be asked
of this Congress.
Park National Reserve.
"The park is a National reserve. For a
long period of years prior to the estab
lishment of the reserve a road was main
tained across it. This road is a natural
highway and outlet for Central Oregon,
and was maintained by those using it
prior to the establishment of the reserve
Since the Government has reserved a
large body of land on which was located
a considerable length of this ancient
thoroughfare. It should provide for ade-
quate and safe means of travel over It
as well as maintain within the park
roads and trails to the wonders of na
ture found within its confines; and espe
cially is this the manifest duty of the
Government, since by its inclusion in a
reserve private, county or state enter
prise is prevented from making the de
sired and necessary improvements.
"The Department of the Interior has
recognized the necessity for extensive
improvements and has made recommend
ations therefor. In 1910 and for several
years prior to that date the estimates
for- appropriations were considerably
larger than the amounts appropriated.
The Government has assumed control,
and It very properly realizes that it
should do what It has excluded other
enterprises from doing."
In concluding his remarks. Mr. Haw
ley painted a beautiful word picture of
the scenic charms of this wild spot in
Southern Oregon.. He said:
Charms Are Told.
'.The Present Mount Mazama. in
which Crater Lake is situated, is the
truncated cone of a great mountain
probaby formerly 17.000 feet in height,
borne cataclysm of nature wrecked the
splendid mountain, destroying 10.000
feet of its elevation, and leaving a
ruined cone, hollowed down to a depth
varying to 4000 feet. But nature heals,
the scars made by her untamed agen
cies, and aa you stand on the rim of
the crater, looking outward, the moun
tain Itself and Its vassal mountains are
clad in royal robes of giant evergreens
and looking inward, 2000 feet below
you Ilea a lake of tranquil blue water
varying to 2000 feet in depth.-six miles
long, and five miles wide." Within this
lake there is a cinder cone more than
800 feet high, whose extinct crfter i"
500 feet in diameter and 100 feet in
depth. The waters of thrs lake are so
clear and quiet that they perfectly re
flect the marching of the stars, and
from the rocky walls of the crater the
stains and coloring of time. But the
tongue cannot describe nor the ear un
derstand the wonder; the eye and imag
ination are alone able to do It justice
Many other objects of nature's handiwork
ere to be seen. Not the least of which
are the forest. The groves were doubt
less God's first temples, but thev are
more than temples. The trees are "mate
rial evidence of the providence of God
who has taken substance from the sun'
shine, the air. and the soil and made
them Into living storehouses of material
for the need, the comfort, and the delight
of men.
-The great interest in this splendid
scenery Is shown by the fact that the
legislative assembly of the State of Ore
gon at its last session appropriated J100.000
for the construction of roads to the park.
And although the Supreme Court of the
state found the act unconstitutional, yet
the fact that such an act was passed in
dicates the general desire of -the people
that this land of nature's marvelous work
should be readily accessible. I under
stand that private enterprise will under
take the building of roads to the park,
with probably some municipal assistance,
and it now remains for the National Gov
ernment to do what it has assnmedthe
responsibility of doing by Including these

English Students FU to Find That
They Are Born Defective.
LONDON. June 11. (Special.) The
Times. In an article on the "Children
of the Alcoholic." says that a report
on this subject prepared by Miss Ethel
Elderton. a research scholar, with the
assistance of Professor Karl Pearson,
and the conclusions which it formulates
are likely to excite something like con
sternation among a large number of
temperance advocates, it feas for many
years been one of the recognized cus
toms of teetotalers to declare that pa
rental alcoholism is eminently injur
ious to offspring: and. although physi
ologists have long been doubtful of
the power of an extraneous agency to
modify the germ plasm in the manner
asserted, there can be no doubt that
a belief to this effect has sunk deeply
into the public mind, and would hardly
be questioned upon a platform.
Whatever elsu was believed or dis
believed about the effect of "drink."
few would be bold enough to deny that
the children of drunkards are ilkely,
on the whole, to be "degenerates" or
the Inheritors of physical and intel
. lectual defects calculated to interfere
with their eventual usefulness as adult
I members of the community.
J It is highly interesting to find that
the detailed examinations conducted by
Mis Bldertop afford no support to the
I doctrine that the children of alcoholic
parents enter upon life under any ln
I herent disadvantages: and that in the
cusv 1 1 1 mure luun ouuu cnnuren exam
ined in Edinburgh and in Manchester,
among whom, according to the tables
appended to the report, nearly one
half were the offspring of a drunken
parent or parents, those in whom this
condition was fulfilled were not in any
way inferior to the children of tee
totalers or, of the sober.
On the grave question whether the
children of alcoholics may Inherit a
tendency to become alcoholics them
selves when adult age is reached, the
report sets forth no conclusion, but It
has not been omitted from consideration
and evidence bearing upon it is in
course of being collected. Miss Klder
ton and Professor Pearson were hardly
prepared for the conclusions at which
they have been compelled to arrive;
and they rather emphasize their posi
tion in this respect by calling atten
tion to the general unwillingness of
social reformers to ascertain facts be
fore they express opinions.
