DENVER. Colo.. Oct. 4. Senator
James A. Reed of Missouri, speaking
here tonight, read from the earlier
writings of Woodrow Wilson and pre
sented a mass cf statistical and other
matter In support of his argument
against the league of nations cove
nant Senator Reed held the atten
tion of his audience closely and was
greeted by generous applause, despite
one or two abortive attempts at
heckling which were soon suppressed.
His arguments were those he has
been presenting throughout his pres
ent tour.
Senator Reed's audience comfort
ably filled the main floor of the mu
nicipal auditorium here, which seats
14.000 persons, and overflowed into
the first balcony.
oovernor Oliver H. Shoup. who
spoke briefly, said he believed no
Colorado audience would be other
than courteous and hoped all those
present might learn something of the
other side of the question.
Laagksrr Stops Ileekliasr.
Senator Reed opened his address by
likening his voice to "a buss saw
going through a pine knot, as the
result of constant speaking. He said
the audience was the best evidence
of the interest American people take
In public questions and elaborated
the doctrine that power rests in the
"This Is not a one-man country,
he said, "but it is a 110.000,000 men
Persons in the crowd started to
heckle the senator and were greeted
with cries of "put him out." Con
fusion ensued but ended in laughter
when the speaker said: "The bray
ing of one ass ought not to break up
a great meeting.

Referring to the Oklahoma inci

women sat quiet when the lights
were cut off I about came to the con
clusion that they were good enough
to vote.
The speaker paid personal tribute
to President Wilson and expressed an
earnest wish for his early recovery.
Senator Reed said he denied that

In the city. This is indicated by the
number of petty burglaries reported

had been entered through a kitchen
window and about $30 in money taken
besides a couple of watches, two hats
and a rain coat. Sergeant E. C.

of Painless Paul, dentist at 125';

large quantity of gold teeth and

Vulcan Machine works, 250 Ullsan

I'ublie Market. Open to All Pro
ducers. Advocated Other
Phases Are Considered.
Upon one point as to how the high
costs of working, worrying and sur
viving may be overcome, the speak
ers at the weekly luncheon of the
Oregon Civic league were in accord
yesterday, and that was the curtail
ment of buying an jar as possible.
On oth.r phases of the subject there
was difference of opinion, including
the public market, which was one of
the chief topics of consideration.
However, there was general unanim
ity that it should be an "open" mar
ket to which all producers might of
fer their products at prices that would
enable householders to buy direct
without pajliisr cost of unnecessary
handling, and wherein there should
be advantages to both producer and
City Commissioner Blgelow dis
cussed the value pf the public mar
ket. Mrs. George L. Williams and
Mrs. K. O. Northrup, two of the
women active in the movement of
housewives, also spoke.
Louise Palmer Webber advanced
the claim that the solution of high
costs could be reached if every man
ufacturer were obliged to label his
product with a statement of the cost
nd if each wholesaler, jobber and
retail merchant were required to do
likewise, there would be no chance
for maintaining the practice of over
charging. She declared that prof
iteering is rife, but that women are
m&king u serious mistake in thinking
that they can combat profiteering by
assailing the public market.

Friday Mayor Baker ordered Mr.
Cowperthwait out of the executive
offices after the president of the hu

some of the directors in the society
as "cattle."
"Several weeks ago we received a

yesterday. "An officer was sent out

the children away and shot the

Mayor Baker said he did not intend
to enter into any controversy with

that the president of the humane so

"All that I care to say," said the
mayor, "is that I Intend lo request

Portland Sends X umber of Rad

Control Will Be Attempted.
Organized labor's proposed alliance

in the formation of a state-wide labor
party will be one of the chief ques

tion of Labor which convenes in its
annual session at. Bend, starting to
morrow morning.
This projected step into the polit

intention of the "red" element in or

convention, promises to make the
coming state convention one of the
memorable meetings in the history
of organized labor.
