Resolutions Are Patriotically
Adopted by "Drys" of
- ' Multnomah.
LEGISLATORS ARE PICKED
Thomas Hurlburt Indorsed for Sher
iff and Committees Named; In
discriminate Supplying of To-,
bacco to Soldiers Attacked.
Smokeless days for men is a meas
ure suggested by the Multnomah Pro
hibition party county convention, the
money saved by such conservation
method to be devoted to patriotic pur
poses. This was embodied in a resolution
which was unanimously adopted &t the
Central Library yesterday. Another
resolution condemned the indiscrim
inate supplying of tobacco to young
men in military service. Following
these moves, the convention nominated
a. legislative ticket and Thomas Hurl
burt for Sheriff.
The convention went on record aa
advocating' that the Government take
over the operation of the telegraph
and telephone systems, ae a war meas
ure, to prevent the possibility of seri
ous labor disturbances that will prove
injurious to the best interests of the
Voters' Status Uncertain.
There were about 65 qualified voters
registered at the convention. Including
three representatives of the National
party, who first made inquiry aa to
whether or not they could properly
register as being present for the con
vention when not actually registered
voters of the Prohibition party. It
was the understanding that this was
the case, that they could properly do so,
and they did. It was the understanding
of the chairman that as the Prohibition
party is legally a party in the state,
it could hold conventions to nominate
candidates for state and county office
without the necessity of obtaining 100
registered voters to show the conven
tion legally constituted, but that for
the purpose of holding a Congressional
convention the requisite number must
sign the rolL
J. P. Newell called the convention to
order and was elected chairman, with
Miss Adah Wallace Unruh secretary.
The convention gave unanimous ap
proval to the platform adopted by the
state convention held at the Imperial
Hotel, June 29. Considerable discus
sion was indulged covering the resolu
tions above referred to, and upon oth
ers that were submitted, but did not
gain favor. When the matter of nom
inations was reached there was a dis
position to select as candidates those
nominees of other parties whose atti
tude on the question of prohibition was
right, rather than to bring out men
who would merely be nominees of the
minority party with little chance of
Stand Pat for Candidates.
It was made plain that the Prohibi
tionists are positively and unequivo
cally against the success of any legis
lative candidate known to favor the
"wets," or any candidate who favored
such possible legislators as Speaker
of the House of Representatives.
E. T. Johnson, O. J. Sherman and
Frances Gotshal were appointed a com
mittee on nominations. These, together
with the chairman and secretary, were
made the permanent committee on
nominations to fill any vacancies that
may occur. The following nominations
were then submitted by the committee
and unanimously made the candidates
of the part, the parenthesis indicating
of what other party the nominee is also
a candidate, if any:
For State Senator John Gill Republican).
For State Representative rr. W. F. Amos
(National), Mrs. Mary Mallett, Professor J.
K. Hart (National), Mrs. L. F. Addlton
tDemocrat), Herbert Gordon (Republican),
Euxenc K. Smith (Republican), J. P. Newell,
Mrs. L. T. Hidden (Democrat), B. I.ee Paffet.
H. I Idleman (Republican), Robert Miller
(Democrat), J. A. Willlson (Democrat).
For Sheriff Thomas Hurlburt (Repub
lican). The nomination of Sheriff Hurlburt
was made without opposition, as a tes
timonial to his record for law enforce
ment. The election of J. Allen Harrison as
chairman of the Third Congressional
District convention and of Miss Unruh
as secretary was the only real official
business done in that direction. It was
announced that the registration did not
ehov a sufficient number present to
nominate a candidate. The claims of
J. T. Brown, National Party candidate,
were presented by George Cleaver. Mrs.
Additon assured the delegates that
John S. Smith. Democratic candidate, is
an excellent man, upon whom the mem
bers of the party might concentrate.
Line t"p Against McArthnr.
The attitude of Congressman McAr
thur toward prohibition was referred
to by a number of speakers, who urged
the concentration of those opposed to
him upon one candidate. The Congres
sional convention then adjourned to 2
o'clock P. M.. August 3, 1918.

Removal of Mr. Alderman and
Restoration of Discharged
Teacher Chief Topics.
OLD PLACE TO BE DENIED
No Intention of Reinstating Former
Principal in Girls' Polytechnic
School, Disturbing Present Con
ditions, Says Dr. Sommcr.
Aside from the demotion of City Su
perintendent Alderman by the Board of
Education at its meeting Thursday,
chief interest in the reorganization of
the administrative forces of the public
schools lies in what assignment Mrs.
Alevia Alexander will receive if she
decides to accept the conditions pre
scribed by the board' and returns to
the employ of the district.
Dr. E. A. Sommer, of the educational
committee, which was instrumental in
removing Mr. Alderman as administra
tive head of the schools, said yesterday
that if Mrs: Alexander- accepts the
board's terms the plan is to give her
the principalshlp of one of the medium
sized schools, probably the Creston
Bchool. He made it plain that she will
not be restored to the principalshlp of
the Girls' Polytechnic School, from
which she, was transferred two years
Reinstatement With Conditions.
The terms imposed by the board as
the condition 'ipon which Mrs. Alexan
der shall be reinstated in the schools
propose that the pending appeal of the
litigation between Mrs. Alexander and
the board will be withdrawn; that she
shall be given a principalshlp to be de
termined later and that her pay for
the time lost on account of the suit
shall be fixed by the teachers' com
mittee on appeals.
Mrs. Alexander has 10 days in which
to file an acceptance of these condi
tions. The litigation between the board
and Mrs. Alexander to date has cost
the taxpayers of the district approxi
mately $3000," said Dr. Sommer yes
terday. "To continue the litigation further
will only add to this expense. Circuit
Judge Gatens has held that Mrs. Alex
ander was unlawfully removed from
her position in the schools and I feel
that any possible adjustment of the
controversy at this time is not only a
matter of justice to Mrs. Alexander.
but a matter of economy so far as the
district is concerned.
Former Position Denied.
There is no intention of reinstating
Mrs. Alexander to her former position
as principal of the Girls' Polytechnic
School. To do so would disturb the
present satisfactory discipline in the
trade school, of which there certainly
is no intention. The plan is for the
present to give her the principalshlp
of one of the schools of medium size.
and I am of the opinion she is Justly
entitled to that consideration. Be
sides, Mrs. Alexander was employed as
principal of one of the city schools at
the time she was elected principal of
the Girls' Polytechnic School."
Mr. Alderman left the city yesterday
for a week-end visit in the country
without having announced a decision
as to what action he may take with
respect to the action of the Board of
It is clearly the Intention of the
board, aa it is now constituted, to se
cure another man as permanent sue
cessor to Mr. Alderman. -An under
standing evidently has been reached
between the board and D. A. Grout,
who has been elected Acting Superin
tendent of Schools, that the latter will
serve only during the remaining year
of the two-year term for which Mr.
Alderman was elected a year ago. This
will give the board a year in which
to choose a new head of the schools.
No Radical Changes to Be Made.
Since I am to he actlnfr Superintend
ent of Schools for one year only, it does
not seem wise for me to undertake to
make any radical changes in the pres
ent system," said Mr. Grout yesterday.
However, I have some general ideas
I shall seek to follow out. I believe
that we must keen the school? abreast
of changing conditions. We must em
phasize more of the rea or objective.
teaching as opposed to the theoretical.
"School work should be linked up
with the living world outside of the
school room. There is need for de
veloping an intelligent and effective
citizenship. We should see to it that
lu our school work we build towards
the American ideal, which is pretty
well defined and understood today.

REJECTIONS ARE COSTLY
TOO MANY DRAFTED MEN TURNED
DOWN AT CAMP LEWIS.
Stricter Physical Examination De
mnndrd and Medical Officers Will
Give Special Demonstrations.
TACOMA. Wash.. July 6. (Special.)
To cut down the number of rejec
tions necessary at the mustering office
at Camp Lewis, arrangements- have
been made with the mustering office
through which medical officers will
give special demonstrations and in
structions in the method and manner
of physical examinations of selected
men under the new physical standardsi
These demonstrations will be given in
the mornings of July 15. 16, 19 and 20,
and will be attended by representa
tives of local and medical advisory
hoards all over the West. Mileage
from home stations in Washington to
Camp Lewis and return will be paid
by the Government.
Nearly 16 per cent of the draft men
forming the early part of the June
quota were rejected at Camp Lewis.
Although draft boards had examined
many of them under the old regula
tions and had not re-examined them
before sending, it is said there were
evidences that the new rules are not
being followed strictly in ttje late ex
aminations. The demonstrations at
the mustering office are aimed to
minimize the draft rejections.
When the July draft starts, it has
been requested of each local board
that the eye. ear and nose specialist
of the medical advisory board be in
attendance when the men are en
trained. MINING ENGINEER IS DEAD

Sure Homes Will Be Open.
40,000 VISITORS MAY COME
Low Rale and Return Limit Privi
leges Sure to Attract Vast Crowd
to Probably Last Cotrventlon of
Veterans on Pacific Coast.
That Portland homes will be thrown
open to the members of the Grand
Army of the Republic, the Women's
Relief Corps and affiliated organisa
tions And members of their Immediate
families during the period of the an
nual encampment of the patriotic or
ganizations is the forecast of the
chairman of the accommodations com
mittee having that part of the ar
rangements in hand.
This gathering is singularly one to
appeal to the patriotism and local
pride of Portland people. It is prob
ably the lastncampment of the rap
idly decreasing members of the vet
erans' great organization that will
ever be held on the Pacific Coast. It
Is 53 years since the close of the Civil
War, and those who participated in
that conflict are seen in fewer num
bers' at each annual gathering. Owing
to the recognition of the great im
portance of this encampment, Director
General McAdoo expressly stipulated
in the readjustment of - passenger
rates, effective June 10. that the rates
to this gathering should be one cent
per mile, actual distance traveled, to
be computed as over the most direct
route on the transcontinental rail
roads. Rate Lowest Ever Made.
One cent a mile is the lowest trans
continental passenger rate ever made
for a great National gathering. It was
done to enable the members of the or
ganizations to attend this meeting in
appreciation of Its patriotic purpose.
Tickets will .be on sale August 1, and
every day thereafter up to the time of
the encampment, which will be in ses
sion three days, August 19, 20 and 21.
Return limits of the tickets will be 60
days from date of -sale. This liberal
provision for sale and return will al
low a great deal of the travel to move
on regular trains in both directions'
and will not require extra equipment
at the time of the gathering. How
ever, delegations from many states will
move in bodies, and it Is estimated that
single states of the Mississippi Valley
may send as many as 600 to 700 per
sons. It has been estimated that the at
tendance may be as high as from 25.
000 to 40,000. Chairman Thomas J.
Swivel, of the local committee on ac
commodations, has formulated an ap
peal to the people of Portland to open
their homes to the visitors. His com
mittee is the first to go into action and
the chairman is already dubbed "Gen
Accommodations Greatly Needed.
"Members of this committee feel that
It will not bo necessary to appeal to
the patriotism of Portland people to
provide accommodations for the visi
tors who come to the encampment in
August," said Chairman Swivel. "So
manv of our people have boys in
Cnnra todav that tney will leei a
closer relationship to the soldiers of
'61 than they ever did before, and will
take pride in making their visit here
pleasant and comfortable. It may be
there will be not to exceed 10.000 visi
tors, but with that number it will be
necessary to find places in homes for
many of them. The commercial hotels
are pretty well filled all the time, and
we want these visitors to have the
best there is while in Portland..
"Certainly every Grand Army vet
eran in the Pacific Northwest and
members of their families will want
to attend this encampment, and we
nronose to make them feel they did
well to come. Knowing that there is
a. dearth of dwellings and hotels, and
that apartment-houses are all full, it
Is not difficult to understand the ne
cessity for having homes signify their
ability to take care of from one to a
Hospitality Will Be Appreciated.
"Wherever possible the homes should
hIro furnish breakfast for each per
son they room. This would relieve the
downtown restaurants and hotels of
the additional burdens upon their fa
cilities, for there will be an unusually
large crowd in the heart of the city
an v war. The Grand Army delegates
and their accompanying families do not
want these accommodations for notn-
lns-. They are willing to pay a reason
able price in every Instance, but they
will appreciate more man woros can
convey the hospitality ot Portland peo
"It Is Portland's great opportunity to
acquaint people of the United States
with the spirit of pride that impresses
the charm of Portland upon visitors.
This encampment takes the place of all
the other usual conventions and events
of ordinary years that bring citizens of
other states to Portland. A large part
of the visitors come from the states
east of the Rockies and will be wonder
fully Impressed and tremendously inter
ested in our shipbuilding industries,
great mills, production of spruce for
airplane stock, the great port of the
Columbia basin ana tne snipping or the
world going in and out on the Colum
bla and the Willamette. Let Portland
citizens unite to make the most of it
by entertaining these visitors in a
characteristically line way."
