Postal Union Conference Due
to Change Rates to AH
Foreign Countries.
British Attitude Will Defeat Radical
Proposal Xow, la Belief Inter
national Trade Stimulus
Foreseen in Cut.'
From January 1. 1915, onward, the
postage on letters between the United
: States and foreign countries, other than
those such as Canada, Great Britain
and Germany, where special lower
agreements are in force, will probably
' be fixed at S cents for the first ounce
Instead of 6 cents, which is the rate
, now in force.
Official action will . not be taken
until next September, following the
meeting of the Postal Union, but the
postal authorities of the world have
already practically decided upon this
- step, according to advices received In
. Portland, and their delegates to the
Postal Union conference, which is com
poeed of representatives from every
government in the world, and meets
every three years, will be so instructed.
Decisions of the conference upon in
ternational postal affairs are final and
Its decrees or recommendations are
never upset by individual governments,
The 3-cent postage, will, in fact, be
a universal 3-cent postage and will be
in force between all nations and coun
tries, saving only those where special
agrements are in force for trade
' other reasons.
Two-cent Postage Doomed.
Postal authorities of the world have
been considering universal 2-cent post
axe. believing that the gross revenu
: would be so enormously increased that
the decreased revenue per letter would
. be offset.
English officials have, however.
ecouted this belief, despite the efforts
of Sir Henlker Heaton. one of the Bri
tish delegates to the conference and
the leader in England in the universal
"oennv post (2 cents) campaign.
A measure will be presented at th
conference advocating universal 2-cent
postage, but it is defeated already, ow
lng to the British attitude, which has
Influenced a number of other countries.
The 2-cent Dlan will be advocated
all probability by the United States,
Francs. Australia, Canada and Germany
Long before each tri-annual Postal
Union conference the various govern
ments communicate the one with the
other, and decide what they intend to
recommend. Those formal communica
"" tions, to a great extent, have already
taken place and universal 3-cent post
' age will be recommended by a majority
or countries represented.
Delegates who find the conference
against a universal 2-cent postage un
doubtedly will switch to the banner of
the 3-cent advocates to make the mo
tion unanimous. In accordance with
past usage, the conference will recom
mend that the change take effect at
the beginning of 1915.
.But for the stubborn opposition of
the British government it is considered
certain that universal 2-cent postage
would be accomplished by the confer
ence, but the British postal authorities
believe that the business would be con
ducted at a loss.
Indemnity Offer Turned Down.
Learning of this attitude, a London
financial magnate offered to deposit
a bond with the British government
Indemnifying the government against
loss under the proposed plan. Yet this
action was given scant consideration.
At present the United States is ruled
by the Postal Union as to Its interna
tional postal rates, with the following
Canada. Mexico. Cuba and Panama,
United States vessels in any part of the
world and the City of Shanghai, China,
whence domestic rates apply as regards
first-class matter.
Great Britain, Ireland and New
Foundland, whence the rate is 2 cents
per ounce on first-class matter, al
though on other classes of matter the
Postal Union dules prevail.
German)', whence first-class matter
may be transmitted by direct German
liners at the 2-cent rate. Should the
faster routes via Cherbourg, Southamp
ton or Fishguard be desired the Postal
Union rates prevail.
Advocates of the " reduced postage
plan declare that 1J, will be an imme
diate stimulus to international trade
and good fellowship. Indications along
this Hue have been furnisbhed since
2S9S. when the British government put
into rorce "imperial penny post In the
British dominions; the much increased
use of cables since the cable letter, de
ferred cable and week-end cable at
much reduced rates, following the plan
of the night and day letter by wire, is
offered as further proof that reduced
rates attract a much heavier business.
Should universal 3-cent postage be
the success prophesied unquestionably
the Postal Union conference meeting
three years hence will adopt a universal
x-cent postage rate.

The attractive programme arranged

Thirty - nine girls were graduated
this month from Mary's Academy
and College, one u. mo largest classes
yet graduated from the institution. On
the commencement programme was a
musical fantasy. "Sailing Into Heaven,"
by the members of the 1914 class. The
success with which the fantasy was
offered probably will cause it to be
repeated in the near future.

Growth of Movie Industry and Reason for Its Development Evidenced by

'Mt'"K ' "
NLY a few years ago motion plc-
tures were considered a curiosity;
those who attended exhibitions
did so purely because they were curi
ous. The great American amusement
loving public has how signified its
willingness to become lovers of the
ilant drama. The industry nas. mere-
fore, passed from an experimental and
curious stage to one of permanency.
It ranks fifth in the inaustries ot
the world, primarily because the pub
lic demanded this class or amusement.
Secondly because such men as W. N.
c.Hr vhn nioneered this business, was
far-sighted enough to see that the pub
lic wanted a pastime that would fur
nish an veninga entertainment ana
supply that thrill that everyone, wheth
er they be Americans or foreigners, de
sires. Thus, Mr. fielig ventured the task of
filming Rex Beach's wonderful novel,
"The Spoiler." To complete this pro
duction. Mr. Sells disregarded all
thought of expense. William Farnum
was engaged to portray the character
of the red-blooded, venturesome Ameri
can. He supplied a cast of wonderful
film performers to complete a perfect
picture. Kathryn Williams portrays
the hardened woman of the North,
Cherry Malotte.
"The Spoilers" will receive its initial
presentation in Portland at The Heillg
Theater for seven days, beginning Sun-:

; m- orient AsnitA tli Ethical Dental Trust of Oregon. Every one of the
Alt AAAJ tl4Viav wwvf " . .
dentists associated with me in this office is a graduated dentist of experience and li
censed to practice under the laws of this state. I am doing the largest dental busi
ness in this city and I defy the Ethical Dental Trust to stop m-
I propose to show how this trust is plundering the people of Oregon. Instead
of the dental laws of this state being a protection to the public, as intended, this
noxious combine has subverted these laws and by control of the State Board of
Dental Examiners the people suffer under a government by a dental trust for the
benefit of a dental trust.
What would you think if the railroads of Oregon made up a list of names and
handed it to the Government from which to appoint the members of the State Rail
road Commission t Such a procedure would not be tolerated. Yet that is how the
dental trust sets its friends on the dental board, and as proof of this it is a f sot
that no dentist who advertises his business has ever been allowed to remtun on the
State Board of Dental Examiners. . ,
I am going to help the people of Oregon break the power of this Ethical Dental
Trust. I know how and I am not afraid to do it. The dental combines in other
states have been after me for years and I have built up the largest dental business
in the world with offices in many large cities. I am not afraid to leave tins to the
people of Oregon who believe in fair play and who pay the dentists bills. If you
want to stop this pilfering of your pocketbooks by the Ethical Dental Trust I will
show you how it can be done. '
I shall present to the people four amendments to the dental lawa M Oregon,
providing: . . ,
1 That it shall be unlawful for any dentist to use cocaine or arsenic,
or any solution containing either or both of these poisons, in the practice of
dentistry in this state. ... j
This law will stop the Ethical Dental Trust from poisoning the people, and
leaving in many patients a craving for cocaine.
2 That a competent dental nurse shall be present as attendant at all
times in every operating room during each operation. .
' This law will be a protection to every woman patient. No woman will be com
pelled to be alone in a room with a dentist during operations, as is often the case at
present because the Ethical Dental Trust will not pay a living wage to nurses.
3 That within six months after the passage of this law every person
practicing dentistry in the state shall be compelled to pass an examination tn
theory and practice before a special state board of dental examiners com
posed of advertising as well as nonadvertising dentists and further, that any
dentist in the state of Oregon who is a member of any society, association or
organization which has a scale of fees or price list of charges shall be de
nied the right to take this examination, and any dentist thereafter who holds
membership in any such society, association or organization shall be forever
barred from practicing dentistry in the state of Oregon.
This law will weed out a lot of incompetent dentists who have been given li
censes to practice by state boards under the control of the Ethical Dental Tnirt in
years past, 'and also prevent the trust from maintaining its combine in restraint of
4 That the State Board of Dental Examiners shall be compelled to
admit to practice in this state any dentist who holds a legal certificate to
practice dentistry in any other state of the Union, providing that said state
will likewise accept the certificates issued by the state of Oregon.
This law will leave the state dental board free to enforce the law without fear or
favor for the public good and take it out of the control of any clique or combine. It
is the principle of reciprocity in dentistry, giving the public full protection and every
dentist an even break before the law. ,
I am opposed to all trusts and especially a dental trust. I believe that when
the people of this state understand what is being done by this Ethical Dental Trust
Tinder the cover of laws intended for the public good, they will demand a new deal
and a square deal.
I am the equal in 6kill, training and experience of any member of the Ethical
Dental Trust, and I don't propose to be branded a "quack" simply because I
will not join this trust in plundering the public when it is suffering with the tooth
ache. The Painless Parker organization of dental specialists do all operations with
out pain and do them more rapidly and better than can dentists using: old-sehool
methods. "We shall continue to make consultations and examinations free of charge
to all who come to us in open disregard of the rules and regulations of the Ethical
Dental Trust of Oregon. ,
I am in favor of laws protecting the public against incompetent and dishonest
dentists, and I believe the people of Oregon are opposed to lawa being made in the
interest of a dental trust.

To lessen traffic congestion on the
principal business district corners, the
city bureau of highways and brWges
under H. W. Holmes, is preparing a
proposed new routing for streetcars,
changing the routing and providing for
cars on only one side ot tne street.
While the Dlan has not been worked
out In detail as yet the proposal is to
eliminate as many of the turns of cars
as possible on Firth and Washington,
Fifth and Morrison, Broadway and
Morrison and Broadway and Washing
ton streets. These intersections now
form the principal intersections for the
looping of cars from many parts of
the -city.
The cltjrs pian is to prevent uie
turning of cars with trailers at these
corners, proviaing ior tne routing; oi
two-car trains in other directions. It
is proposed also to have the cars use
the rlgnt-nann tracics on mesa

It Is said that from tne tranic
studies made by the city bureau of
highways and bridges, traffic conges
tion is great at these Intersections and
on these streets most of the day and
particularly in the afternoons. .By
preventing the turning of cars much
traffic delay will be lessened. By having
the cars onlv on the rlcht side of
the streets and Intersections room will ,
be available for traffic to move on to I
the left-hand side of stopping street
cars. With the cars on both tracks
at present traffic has to stop while
passengers are getting on and off the
cars. The same applies to ears turning
corners. The two-car trains oause
traffic to slop while the cars are
swinging across the street, thus adding
greatly to congestion.
Mr. Holmes says he expects to work
the plan out In all detail before taking
It up with the streetcar company. The
plan will bo open then for revision, the
