JOB IS NECESSARY
TO OBTAIN PAROLE
Board Meets and Announces
New Policies and Rules
to Govern Conduct.
JOHN F. LOGAN CHAIRMAN
Parole Orticer to Be Required to
Assist His Charges in Getting
Employment as Well as to
Keep Watch on Them.
SALEM. Or., Jue 12. (Special.) At
Its first official meeting, held today
at the penitentiary, the new Parole
Board prepared rules which will gov
ern Its conduct, and announced certain
policies different from those practiced
at the prison in the past. Chief among
the innovations is a rule that hereafter
no prisoner will be recommended for
parole by the Board until some1 reliable
person assures him employment. A
similar rule is in force in California
and other states. It was made one of
the chief duties of the parole officer
not only to watch over paroled men,
but especially to assist them and aid
them in obtaining and keeping em
ployment. Under the new law passed by the last
. legislature the Parole Board consists
of the following ex-ofEicio members:
Warden Minto. of the penitentiary; Pa
role Officer Keller and G. P. Putnam,
private secretary to Governor Withy
combe. In addition the Governor ap
points two citizens. Thus far John F.
Logan, ot Portland, has been appointed,
but the other member has not been
chosen. At today's meeting Mr. Logan
was elected chairman.
Asittstance Is Kxpected.
In conformity to the rule that the
parole officer should exert himself in
obtaining jobs for prisoners, Joe Kel
ler, who occupies that position, will
devote such time as he can spare
from other. duties to trying to arrange
for places for men who shortly are to
he paroled. Already several positions
have been arranged for, and in con
Junction with societies and individuals
interested in prison aid it Is expected
that considerable assistance in getting
a proper start can be lent the released
Heretofore a paroled man, or one
whose sentence has expired, was sent
from the prison with $5 and the suit
on his back. It seems to be the ex
perience that often before he can find
work he becomes penniless and is
faced by grave temptations again to
resort to crime. By not letting a man
out until he has a bona fide job. It is
argued that a big step will be taken
toward keeping him out of temptation
and getting him started right. The
plan apparently has worked well else--where.
The board was unanimous in
adopting it, and Governor Withycombe
heartily approves the plan.
IVew RulM Are Told.
Among other new rules, which short
ly will be printed and which echo the
general policy of the Parole Board, are
"The parole officer shall have ful!
authority and control over paroled men
under the supervision of this Board
and the Governor.
"Every paroled man shall report
monthly to the parole officer. These
reports shall be continued xintil the
Board sees fit to have them discon
tinued. In this connection the Board
deems that there is no sound reason
for a paroled man to expect the return
of his forfeited citizenship more read
ily than such citizenship can be ob
tained by a law-abiding alien who must
wait five years.
"It is the sense of this Board that
one of its special functions shall be to
aid materially every paroled man in re
establishing his place in the estimation
of the world. With this in view the
parole oftlcer is directed not only to
keep a comprehensive watch over the
actions of paroled men, but especially
to lend them every assistance not only
in obtaining employment and making
progress, but also in protecting them
against the persecution which often is
Imposed upon ex-convicts."
The following were recommended for
parole to the Governor by the Board:
John McCullough, committed from Uma
tilla County May 6, 1914, one to 10
years, larceny of cow; Dave Snyder,
committed from Umatilla County Feb
ruary 21, 1913, one to three years, ob
taining money under false pretenses;
C. A. Carmany, committed from Yam
hill County May 14. 1914, one to 10
years, larceny by bailee: Walter C.
Dutrow, committed from Wasco County
June 4, 1914, one to 10 years, larceny of
horse, and W. H. Beeman, committed
from Marion County July 18, 1912. three
to 15 years, for assault and robbery.

following resolutions to the President:

Seven-Eighth Control Asserted.
Although it was thought the consti
tutionalist element had lost the support
of the people when they withdrew from
Mexico City, the statement asserts, in
fact it now has control of over seven
eighths of the national territory. Ad
ministrations, it is asserted, are being
organized in 20 out of 27 states of the
republic and the Vera Cruz government
controls all of the ports on the Gulf
and Pacific Ocean, with the ex?ption

the northern and southern frontiers,

is asserted, is decreasing and the of

stated, when harmonious government
will be secured in all states and terri

The constitutionalist government has
done all in its power, it is said, for the
people, especially the poor, by forbid
ding the export of necessities, and has
punished abuses and protected the
lives of those within its territory.
Help for People Promised.
The work of relieving the civil pop
ulation, the statement says, will now
be facilitated by recent victories
which have enlarged the sphere of ac
tivity of the constitutionalist govern
ment. In regard to foreign relations Gen
eral Carranza asserts that one of his
initial acts as first chief was to ap
prise the United States of his attitude
facing rebellion and usurpation. He
feels that his labors have ben re
tarded by lack of understanding in
the United States, and other nations
as well. The press under the
cientifico influence, it is asserted,
prejudiced foreign nations against
him, and this he was unable to combat,
lacking the ordinary means offered
when diplomatic relations exist be
"If, as we hope and wish," General
Carranza's proclamation continues, "for
the benefit of the Mexican people and
of the foreigners resident in the coun

justice an efective moral support
which will not only strengthen the
friendly relations which Mexico has
always cultivated with these nations
and enable them to discuss their com
mon affairs, thus recognizing their
mutual interests, but also will more
rapidly consolidate peace and estab

HARVESTER CASE IS
KEY TO DECISIONS
Supreme Court's Action Is Ex
pected to Show Attitude
on Other Matters.
ISSUES ARE MOMENTOUS
Government Defeated in Recent Ef
forts to Attack Business Merely
Because of Bigness and When
No One Else Complains.
OREGON IAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, June 11. Whether the United
States Supreme Court on appeal will
sustain or reverse the recent decision
of the United States District Court for
New Jersey in the steel trust case prob
ably can be determined when that
tribunal hands down its decision in the
Harvester Trust case, a decision which
Is expected June 14 or 21. If the Har
vester decision-is not announced then
it will come soon after the Supreme
Court reconvenes in October.
Until the Harvester case is decided
there is ground for speculation as to
what Ihe ultimate decision will be In
the steel trust case, although .'earned
lawyers in the East generally t-xpress
confidence that the New Jersy -.ourt
will be upheld, notwithstanding the
"Rule of Reason'' Applied.
The adverse decision In the steel
trust case Is the sixth decision recently
returned by Federal Courts against the
Government in prosecutions brought
under the anti-trust law. Against
these six adverse decisions the Gov
ernment has won only one victory in
the courts below, that In the Harvester
case. In the Steel case, the National
Cash Register case, the United States
Shoe Machinery ease, the Keystone
Watch Case Company case, the Euro
pean Passenger Steamship Conference
case and the case of the American-Asiatic
steamship lines, the courts below
applied the "rule of reason," laid down
by the Supreme Court in the Standard
OH and Tobacco cases, and found
against the Government.
In most of the cases decided against
the Government the courts found there
was no unreasonable restraint of
trade: that where there may have been
restraint, it was shown to have been
reasonable restraint, not repugnant to
the law, as interpreted by the Supreme
Court In the Standard Oil and Tobacco
o Complaint Is Found.
In the two steamship cases the courts
below found a reasonable restraint, but
held that no customers of the steam
ship lines, no shippers, no independent
and competing steamship lines had
complained, and therefore concluded
that the restraint, such as was proved,
was not unreasonable. In other words,
the lower courts found that the steam
ship, companies were -conducting their
business, in the main, In a way that
brought no complaint except from the
Government. The Government, in ap
pealing those cases, contends that the
mere getting together of the parties
to the conference and the combination
to fix rates, to determine routes and
otherwise to control shipping business,
is in itself a violation of the law,
whether competitors or patrons com
plained or not.
This also was the contention of the
Government in the Harvester trust
case, a contention that was upheld by
the Federal Court of Minnesota, and in
its appeal to the Supreme Court the
Harvester Company set up the conten
tion that complaint against it was
made only by the Government; that its
patrons were not complaining.
Harvester Case Is Keynote.
It is admitted generally that If the
Supreme Court reverses the Minnesota
court in the Harvester Company case
and decides adversely to the Govern
ment, the prospects will be favorable
for ultimate decisions against the Gov
ernment in the other suits brought
under the anti-trust law. Affirmation
of the Minnesota court's decision in the
Harvester case, however, materially
will alter the eituation, with prospects
that the Supreme Court ultimately will
sustain the contention of the Govern
ment In most, if not all, the anti-trust
suits now awaiting .appeal.
Reversal of the Minnesota court in
the Harvester case probably would put
an end to prosecution of big corpora
tions at random, largely on the ground
that they are "big business," and would
give to business a stimulus it has not
had in a long time.

Superintendent David Govan yester
day was instructed by 'the state to
open a force account camp at Pot

Indians equal opportunity with white
men in employment. Chief Engineer
James Allen says that the Indians are
good roadbuilders, and that some of
tlie best roads in the section are those
in the reservation. There Is. more than
sentiment behind the order to give the
Indians work, however, for they have
promised the state free right-of-way
tnrough the reservation. This section
of the road will shorten the route four
miles and will eliminate the dangerous
Bids also were called yesterday, to be
opened July 12. for another section of
the Olympic Highway, lo miles between
Mud Bay and McCleary, Thurston and
Chehalis County. This work is esti
mated to cost $38,000. Three pieces of
right-of-way yet are to be secured,
condemnation suits being set for hear
ing early in July.
The highway department has issued
a call for bids to be opened on June
28 for the construction and gravel sur
facing of one mile of Pacific Highway
from La Center, Clarke County. The
highway was held up at this point last
year by difficulty in securing a right
of-way. This trouble is settled. The
work is estimated to cost about $9000.

CORVALLIS, Or., June 12. (Special.)
Twenty-five hundred persons were
fed at an .open-air barbecue served here
today by Corvallis merchants to farm
ers of Benton and Linn counties in the
vicinity of Corvallis.
Townspeople were barred from the
feast. A trench was dug in the park
ing of Jackson street, north of the
Courthouse, and a beef, a lamb and a
hog were roasted. Large pans of beans
were baked and a number of halibut
were cooked. Each gruest passed along
a long table- near the trench and was
served In cafeteria style.
Earlv this morning several hundred
came to the trench and watched the
preparation -of the food. Among those
who came to see the operation were
Dr. Robert J. Wilson, superintendent
of contagious diseases hospitals of New
York City, and Mrs. Wilson and Dr.
Anna Williams, noted "tubercular spe

Immediately after the dinner several
speeches were made in the Courthouse
park. County Judge Malone and Mayor
Taylor welcomed the farmers to Cor
vallis. Dr. W. J. Kerr, president of
the Oregon Agricultural College, ad
dressed the farmers briefly and Sena
tor Chamberlain spoke on questions at
tracting the Nation's attention. Sena
tor Chamberlain expressed the belief
that the revolutionists in Mexico will
soon discover that .President wiison
means business and will get together
and restore that country to law and
order. Speaking of the European situa
tion, he said:
'I have never felt there was any
thing in President Wilson's first note
to Germany that should have caused
the German people to be aggrieved. It
was couched in diplomatic terms, but
firm, because the occasion was one
that required firmness."
He spoke of Germany's reply, which,
he said, was crude, and said in regard
to Wilson's second note that it amounts
tp: "I meant what I said in my first
letter.' " '
explanations be offered on both sides.
This suggestion the women rejected.
CANNERS GET RATE CUT
Traffic Managers Decide to Meet Ca
PUYALLUP, Wash., June 12 (Spe
cial.) W. H. Paulhamus, president of
the Puyallup' and Sumner Fruitgrowers'
Association, received a dispatch today
announcing a sweeping reduction in
freight rates from the Pacific Coast to
Eastern markets on canned sajmon,
fruit and vegetables. This action is a
result 5f a conference in Chicago of
traffic managers of various Western
railroads regarding Panama Canal com
petition. "This decision is important to the
Western canning industry," said Mr.
Paulhamus, "as it will place it on a
more equal footing in competition with
Eastern canners. The present rate for
salmon canners is 70 cents on a 60,000
pound minimum. The present rate on
canned fruits is 85 cents on a 40,000
"The new rate, which will take effect
in July, will be 62 cents to Chicago
and all points west of Chicago.
"This Is very much cheaper than
heretofore," continued Mr. Paulhamus;
"in fact, for $35 they can ship to com
mon points 20,000 pounds of canned
products, which is the difference be
tween the new rates and the old. This
reduction in transportation rates should
greatly stimulate the fruit and vege
table canners. as they have a 40-cent

tne old all-rail rate of 85 cents; and
