of helpless Chinese to Japan. And
then, perhaps, the settlement of Fiume's
fate will be declared by the senate to
be a question for self-determination by
the peoples affectet!.
The announcement of Senators Lodge
and Borah that they had seen the full
text of the peace treaty in New York
produced an almost riotous effect on
the senate. Senator Hitchcock of Ne
braska displayed such emotion as has
not been witnessed in the senate in n.
loner time. He seemed to sense a high
crime, but the spectator was impressed
that in Senator Hitchcock's estimation
the crime was in the peace treaty's
having been exhibited to somebody
else before he had seen it.
Distress Held Justified.
And gossip has it that Senator Hitch
rock has pood reason to feer slighted.
He has led the administration's fight
in the senate for a league of nations,
and private individuals have been per
mitted to seo the treaty draft before it
has been offered to him.
This leak, like many that have char
acterized the course of this adminis
tration, is laid to some of Mr. Wilson's
advisers. The gossip is that one copy
of the peace treaty was sent back from
Paris or Versailles by a distinguished
member of the American commission to
a friend in New York to scrutinize and
dissect. At least three others are said
to have fallen in some manner into
the hands of other equally good friends,
and from friends they may have passed
into the hands of enemies, such as Sen
ators Lodge and Borah. Additional
copies are said to be on the way from
Germany and Norway, one dispatch
saying that the German government
had sent copies of the treaty to all
members of congress.
It 11 mors Are Doing; Harm.
Even the advocates of the league of
nations undoubtedly feel now that it
would be well to lay the full treaty
before the senate without delay, be
cause rumors are going abroad which
are doing much harm. The league cause
is being hurt by rumors which may not
be true, and so long as the treaty is
unrevealed, other new and more dan
gerous rumors will arise that cannot
be overcome after the public prejudices
are once set in the belief that great
wrongs have been perpetrated in secret
conferences to which the president of
the United States has been a party.
One rumor that is doing particular
harm relates to the labor section of the
treaty. Labor is hearing that the plan
is one which calls for the leveling of
labor standards throughout the world,
through which it is declared American
industrial workers will suffer by reason
of their having the highest standards
of living, the best working conditions
and the best scale of wages.
Bad Complications Possible.
Other reports have it that there is
bo much in the treaty calling for leg
islation by congress as to involve the
house of representatives. Members of
the house are stirred by some of the
reports regarding the treaty, as well as
by demands from their constituents that
they take a hand in seeing that the
treaty contains this or that or is re
jected. These constituents, of course, do
not understand that treaties are rati
fied by the senate, but there are possi
bilities for many complications in this
nagging at members of the house.
The house has on two or three occa
sions in the history of this country as
serted its right to participate in treaty
making and in 1S00 called on the execu
tive for correspondence in connection
with the Prussian treaty which was
then up for ratification in the senate.
The correspondence was furnished.
Should this treaty once get into the
hands of the house all of the work at
Paris would probably have to be done
over again.
Lfamie Overshndows All.
So absorbing has been the interest
In the league of nations developments
in the senate that Washington almost
forgot within a few hours the attempt
to blow up the home of Attorney-General
Palmer last Monday night, and
the passage of the resolution to sub
mit the woman's suffrage amendment
to the states. The attempt to assassi
nate the attorney-general did not cre
ate the keenest excitement because it
was generally felt that the leniency
with which the administration has been
dealing with radicals of all descrip
tions was sure to lead to serious out
breaks. When it was found that the
dynamiter came from outside Wash
ington and that he was just an ordi
nary anarchist all interest was lost.
While the senate is furnishing th
thrilling sensations, the house is legis
lating with the same vim that marked
the first days of the session, and when
President Wilson returns . it will not
he the fault of the house if the last
important measure left over from the
65th congress is not ready for his sig
nature. Important Probea Ordered.
Besides passing the agricultural ap
propriation bill, it has passed the reso
lution creating the Graham committee
to investigate the entire management
of the war, both as it relates to
preparations in this country and on the
battle lines in France. - Another reso
lution provides for an investigation of
the shipping board from top to bottom
and at every port where a ship was
built for or floated by the goernment.
The army appropriation bill has been
reported to the house for passage with
$400,000,000 recommended by Secretary
Baker eliminated and plans are making
to report the naval bill with similar re
ductions, and the appropriations com
mittee is bringing forth the bill to ap
propriate $750,000,000 for the railroads.
A recommendation for the cepeal of
the daylight saving law, effective aftet
October 1, has been made and in a few
days the house committee on inter
state commerce, following the action of
the same committee in the senate
earlier in the week, is expected to rec
ommend the return of telegraph and
telephone lines to the private owners,
to which additional interest attaches by
reason of the action of Postmaster
General Burleson this week in restor
ing the old operating boards of the
companies to power.
Wood Sentiment Growing.
Presidential politics in Washington
at this time deals with only two names.
General Leonard Wood occupies the
center of the stage as the republican
candidate, and the democrats talk no
longer of anybody but Wilson.
The situation as to General Wood is
remarkable in that the politicians
largely seem to have surrendered to
the belief that he will be the republi
can nominee next year. The demand
for Wood, it is frankly admitted, comes

The launching of the Wonahbe at the plant of Geo. TP. Rodgers & Co., at
Astoria, brings out the fact her sponsor, Mrs. H. W. Meyers of Salem, comes
from a prominent American maritime family of the post-revolutionary war
period, which helped to build and man . some of the famous ships of that
historic time. Her great-grandfather, Josiah Barker, as a young man, served
in the frigate La Hague, in the war of the revolution. Later, as United States
naval constructor, he built the U. S. sloop of war, Frolic, which was captured
by the British frigate Orpheus off M atanzas. In the war of 1812. After
her memorable and gallant career in the war of 1812, he rebuilt the famous old
sea-fighter. Constitution, for years the pride of the American navy. In 1843
he planned and constructed the Portsmouth and so well was she built that
for more than 60 years she remained in the service of the United States
navy. His son, Seth Barker, who could not resist the lure of the sea. fol
lowed in his father's footsteps and Mrs. Meyers, in breaking the bottle on the
modern Wonahbe, can be said to have done her share in keeping up the
maritime tradition of the family.
ment of the Wood sentiment so gener
ally about the country seems to have
forced the politicians to get into line,
although they do it reluctantly. It is
not because the politicians dislike
Wood, but because the most of them
were .committed to other candidacies
which several weeks ago looked prom
ising. The fact is that General v ood
has no genuine enemies in the republi
can party while he has many demo
cratic admirers.
Democrats who had hoped to oppose
General Wood, in event that he is the
republican candidate, on the ground
that he is a military man, were horri
fied this week to learn that their own
party once put itself on record as de
claring that General Wood was not a
military man at all. In 1912 when the
promotion of General Wood to major
general was proposed the democrats
consumed days in putting before con
gress evidence that Wood was not a
military man and that therefore he
had no right to a high place in the
army. He was a great administrator
and a practical executive, they ad
mitted, as was demonstrated by him
while governor-general of Cuba, but as
to being a military man they would
have none of it.
Today the Wilson candidacy looks as
certain as the Wood candidacy. The
democrats admit that they have no one
else and say that if anyone can keep
their party in power it is Woodrow
Wilson. They do not declare with any
real earnestness their belief that he can
win, but, they say, he is their only
Gossip this week deals with only
three names in the country-wide polit
ical situation.
Hoover'a Eye on Senate.
The first is that of Herbert Hoover,
food administrator, now In Europe, who
is reported to be getting ready to run
for the United States senate in Cali
fornia. Although ne has always called
himself a republican, the question is,
does he so align himself now since in
dorsing the president's proclamation of
last October that the country must
elect a democratic congress. The sale
of the Sacramento Union, with the an
nouncement that Ben Allen, Hoover's
former food publicity man, is to be the
editor-manager, is responsible for the

Man of Many Aliases Leaves Hos

Ramlow Wilson, who spent 90 days
in the county jail in 1917 as Fred Wil
son, ISO days in the county jail in 191S
as Fred Morris and a term in the
penitentiary at Walla Walla as Joe
Jones, was brought to the county jail
yesterday from the county hospital,
where he has been recuperating from
the effects of bird-shot fired at close
range. He probably has lost the use
of his left arm, say physicians.
Wilson was arrested at Fairview
after having been shot by the pro

store as he tried to effect an entrance
through a window.

Crippled Woman in Indianapolis to
Receive Gift or Blooms
From Portland.
Twelve thousand rosebuds, the ma
jority of them Caroline Testouts, left
Portland last evening for Indianapolis
and the Shrine convention. They are
to help Portland's claims to the 1920
Shriners convention. The roses were
packed in 15 large boxes.
While the roses are being sent pri
marily in the cause of the 1920 Shriners'
convention for Portland, they will also
perform a mission of altruism. Mrs.
O. J. Frankel, acting police matron,
who as head of the Portland Women's
Federated clubs superintended the gath
ering of a large share of the rosebuds,
knows of a crippled woman living in
Indianapolis. Because of her infirmity
this woman has never been able to
come to Portland and see the roses
about which she has heard so much.
Her name and address were telegraphed
yesterday afternoon to W. J. Hofmann,
illustrious potentate of Portland's Al
Kader temple, with the instructions for
a group of Portland Shriners to go in
uniform and present to her a number
of Portland's official roses.
It was originally planned to send but
10,000 roses to Indianapolis. This num
ber was supplied by the Portland park
board alone. An extra 2000 were culled
from gardens of members of the wom
en's federated clubs.

Lillian M. Conrad kept an enlarged

thony R. Conrad in a suit for divorce
filed yesterday, and finally left her hus
band March 8, 1919, with the announce
ment that she "had never loved him
and only married him out of spite."
Bessie I. Sword complains that E. TJ.
Sword after joining the navy at Brem
erton in August, 1917, made infrequent
visits to Portland and upon coming to
this city called on another young
woman instead of his wife and child.
Other divorce actions filed yesterday
were: Crystal Evelyn Welch against
Orme X. 'Welch, desertion: Eva F. Ross
against C. W. Ross, cruelty; and Mar

Reputation of Portland Endangered
If Householders Refuse Aid
in Emergency.
Unless 6000 rooms in private Port
land homes are listed before Tuesday
night at the housing bureau in Liberty
temple the Victory Rose Festival will
not be a success.
Such was the announcement made
yesterday by Ira L. Rigrgs, president of
the Victory Rose Festival board of di
rectors. The Liberty temple will be
kept open all today that rooms may be
listed. The housing bureau may be
reached by calling Main 313 by those
who cannot personally call at the bu
reau. Less than 1000 rooms have as yet
been listed. Within the last week more
than 2500 applications for reservations
during the Ad club convention and the
Victory Rose Festival have been re
fused by Portland hotels, already over
crowded. Some hotel men estimate
that 10,000 rooms In private homes will
be necessary if out-of-town visitors
are fully accommodated.
Julius Meier has declared his will
ingness to co-operate in the emer
gency. "My home is not large, but our
spare bedroom will be occupied by a
Victory Rose Festival guest," he de
clared yesterday. "Very few Portland
business men are anxious to make
money by taking in roomers, but nearly
every business man of this city is eager
to increase the good reputation of
Portland. This city has a reputation
for hospitality and it must be sus
tained." The same plea for the reputation of
Portland was made by Richard W.

and chairman of the special committee
appointed by the Hotel Men's asBocla-

John L. Etheridge has not only

occupied by the Morris Bros, bond
house, formerly used as a hotel, but has
also promised to list one of the bed
rooms in his residence. "We have no
spare room in our house at the present
time," he said, "but this is a time when
everybody must sacrifice for the sake
of the city."
H. W. Arbury, chairman of the hous

Jones, adjutant of the women's league
for national service, and Mrs. Norman
Christie of the war camp community
service, as a special committe to solicit

Thursday. It has visited small hotels
and rooming houses somewhat removed

every available room.

We live In an epoch of unusual activ

of unprecedented achievement in mate
rial things, an era of unbounded prom

and brain of man. The discoveries and

momentous are the new developments
of this day that we live in constant ex

Incredulity as to the possible is out of
fashion. Every fresh discovery or ap
plication to service is another find in
the rich mines of truth, and continuous
revelation is a feature of the age.

who shuns the laboratory because, for
sooth, he thinks that new discoveries
are impossible, and the best he can do

Such men. for such declarations, would

But note this terrifying exception,

It has been long taught that nothing

My Church must be up-to-date. Its
