favoring the trusts which somebody
sneaked Into the. Progressive platform
was lifted word for word and letter for
letter from the confession of faith
made by Theodore Roosevelt to the
people and delivered on August 6 in
Chicago. This was the discovery made
here- today after a comparison of the
violated platform and the confession of
Another development was the reply
to Oscar King Davis by Dr. Charles
"Somebody is going to be shown up
a colossal liar before we are through
with this thing." said Dr. McCarthy.
"The plank which was discovered In
the platform and which was not In It
when the platform was adopted was
burled in Roosevelt's confession in an
Flank Adopted br Convention.
Dr. McCarthy still maintains that the
trust plank. Including the Sherman
anti-trust law Indorsement, was a part
of the Progressive platform when
adopted by the Chicago convention.
After reading Davis' Interview, Dr.
McCarthy said that the whole matter
rested with Dean Lewis and Gilford
Plnchot, who could produce the records.
McCarthy submitted the following four
questions to Davis regarding the ad
mission of the itlmli: .
"Who told Davis that a mistake had
been made in the adoption of the Sher

"It Is contrary to the testimony of

Patients Treated in Berlin With

BERLIN, Nov. 30. (Special.) A
press correspondent this week Investi
gated the newly announced discovery of
an actual cure for tuberculosis and if
the history of cases and tests of per
sons who say they were cured may be
trusted, it seems, at least to a layman
who has had much experience in the
great consumption camps of Arizona
and California, that Dr. Friedrich Franz
Friedman, the Berlin physician, after a
decade of experimenting, has finally
solved the problem, where Dr. Koch
failed. He has given the world his
cure. It is believed the discovery will
mark one of the greatest epochs in the
history of medicine.
The correspondent visited and inter
rogated numerous . patients who had
been treated for tuberculosis, includ
ing pulmonary throat trouble and
glandular and knee bone tuberculosis
These patients all asserted that they
had been cured after from one to three
injections of serum. Several of th
cases of bone tuberculosis were of long
standing and showed scars. In two

LONDON, Nov. 30. The second month

history closes under brighter auspices
than the statesmen who have been

Thi terms of the armistice have not
been announced. Chief Interest centers

Powers' Commission Favored.
The project for establishing a diplo

ambassadors of the powers in some cap

question in the period of upheaval
gains strength. The Fall Mall Gazette
predicts it will be arranged within two
days. While Turkey and the Balkan
states may arrange a treaty of peace
by direct negotiations, they can hardly
do this without constant consultation
with the powers.
The Albanian politicians at Avlona
have launched a provisional govern

With marked gains In virtually every
important branch of business In No
vember, Portland begins the last month
of the year with the solid assurance
that 1912 will prove the banner year in
its history. From month to month
there have been noteworthy Increases
in bank clearings, postal receipts and
flour, grain and lumber shipments.
Commercially and industrially, the city
has maintained a steady advancement.
and yet a no time has there been the
least hint that the city has overgrown.
Fortified with its tremendous resources.
the city was enabled to withstand the
disturbing Influences of the National
and state election and emerge from the
campaign In an unprecedented degree
Continued operations of the railroads

and extensions, establishment of indus

prospective Investment of Immense
sums of Eastern and foreign capital
In land projects and timber lands, and
a general constructive forward move
ment in the state are factors that con
tribute to the Increasing prosperity of
Banks Reflect Prosperity. .
In bank clearings a new mark was
reached for November, the total clear
ances for the month amounting to $53,
658,619.14, as compared with $i,tS7,
651.80 for the corresp'ondlng'month last
year, and $45,076,551.83 for November,
1910. This Is a gain of $3,170,967 over
November last year, and $8,582,067 over
the corresponding month two years ago.
For the past three months Portland
bank clearings have exceeded the $50,
000,000 mark. A corresponding increase
in bank deposits has been made, with
the result that the financial institutions
of Portland are in a stronger condition
than ever before.
Another Portland institution that has
been making steady gains throughout
the 'year Is the local Postofnce. Re
ceipts from the sale of stamps in No
vember reached the big total of $86,-
505.09 according to an estimate sub
mitted by Acting Postmaster William
son last night. The month's record
amounts to $5094.12 In excess of the
total receipts for November last year,
the gain being 6.26 per cent.
Portland's export business for No
vember also set a new record, the total
value of shipments exceeding that of
November, 1911, by nearly $500,000. One
of the gratifying features of the
month's activity was the great increase
In lumber exports, there having been
dispatched from Portland 12,937,827 feet
as compared with 6.289,000 feef during
November, 1911. Coastwise lumber
shipping exceeded all former November
records by reaching the big total of
15,225,000 feet. This is a gain of more
than 3,000,000 feet over November ship
ments last year.

Ideal Trip Declared to Be From Cape

BOSTON, Nov. 30. "The safest and
easiest way to reach the North Pole,
and an entirely feasible way is by
aeroplane," said Captain Robert A
Bartlett, of the Peary North Pole party,
to the members of the Aero Club of
New England, at Its annual dinner to
night. Captain Bartlett said an aero
plane could be taken by land to Cape
Morris K. Jesup, which is only 381 miles
from the pole. With the latest ma
chines this would mean only a four
hours' flight to the pole, he said.
"The ice would furnish suitable land
lng places all along the route, but all
necessary supplies would have to be
carried for the trip to and from the
"The ideal trip," said th speaker,
'would be to go from Cape Jesup di
rectly over the pole and land at Cape

however, being 733 miles beyond the

YOUNG MEN ABSORB CLUB
Christian Association to Replace Alco
Society at Albany.
ALBANY, Or.. Nov. 30.-(Special.)
As the result of action taken at the
annual meeting of the Alco Club last
evening, a Young Men's Christian
Association will be formed In Albany
at once, - and the Alco Club property
will be turned over to the new associa
tion. The new organization will thus
be established in this city with a fully
equipped club rooms and gymnasium.
Last nights action is the result of
plans which have been under develop
ment here for several weeks. The
Alco Club, a social and athletic organi
zation organized about ten years ago,
has lost many members during the
past two or three years because of the
formation of other clubs and organlza
tlons in this city.
At a banquet given by A. C. Schmitt
at the St. Francis Iloiel two weeks ago
several local men agreed to form the
association, provided the. Alco Club
property could be securadand submit
ted a proposition which was taken up
by the club at its annual meeting last
evening and accepted.
Under the arrangement made last
evening the Young Men's Christian
Association must be organized and
ready to close the deal for the prop
erty on January 2, 1913. - Plans for the
organization of the new association
will go forward at oace.
The annual election of officers of the
Alco Club occurred last evening, and,
as the present officers are familiar
with the club's conditions, they were
re-elected and instructed to close up
the business for turning over the prop
erty. The officers are G. A. Flood,
president; F. P. Nutting, vice-president;
Neil M. Bain, secretary; H. B. Cusickt,
treasurer. C. H. Cusick, F. C. Stell
macher, Frank G. Will and W. L. Marks
were re-elected directors, and D. O.
Woodworth was elected on the board of
directors to succeed H. A. Stoltenberg,
who has left the city.
