released from solitary confinement in
the Multnomah county jail yesterday
and placed in a general corridor by
Sheriff Hurlburt, without -waiting: for
recommendations from District At
torney Hedges of Clackamas county.
Since his arrest Brake has bee
kept in solitary imprisonment, not
being- permitted to see any person but
his attorney, at request of District
Attorney Hedges. Moore, who has
confessed to participation in the
crime, and is believed to have ex
onerated Brake entirely, has been
allowed the freedom of a general cor
ridor during the same period and
could get cigarettes, shaves and the
companionship denied Brake.
Tom Garland, attorney representing
Brake, introduced a motion in the
Clackamas county Jail Friday ask
ing that Brake be extended equal
privileges with Moore, Saying that
the jail administration was in his
own province and seeing no reason
for. the discrimination against Brake,
1 Sheriff Hurlburt acted yesterday.
Lionel C. Mackay, deputy city at
torney, was yesterday assigned to
make a thorough investigation of the
recent increase in the retail price of
milk to determine, is possible, wheth
er the advance is justified. The as
signment was made by Acting Mayor
Bigelow. who instructed Deputy City
Attorney Mackay to lose no time in
beginning the probe.
Although Acting Mayor Bigelow
was reluctant to discuss the increased
price of milk without first obtaining
all the facts in connection with the
rise, he did not hesitate to say that
every visible sign seemed to indicate
that the rise is unjustified.
Green Grass Plentiful.
"The hay crop this year is more
abundant than usual." said Acting
Mayor Bigelow. 'The green grass
is plentiful and will not be exhausted
for a Jong time. The dairy pasture
along the Columbia river slough has
not overflowed this year and person
ally it would seem that an increase
in milk prices is not justified at this
"I have noticed that the increase
is attributed to increased cost of pro
duction and distrubution. Perhaps
such costs have been gradually ad
vancing, but it is difficult for the
laymen to perceive wherein such
prices have materially advanced in
the past four months."
Attorney's Report Waited.
Just what action the city will take
In connection with the advance of
milk prices will not be determined
until Attorney Mackay has concluded
his investigation. It will probably
take several days before he will be in
a position to report to the acting
mayor. And unless the producers and
distributors of milk are willing to
furnish information necessary. It will
take the city's investigator a week or
more to gather data.
Kvery indication points to the nam
ing of a new city milk commission to
represent the consumer In the present
situation. Members of the city coun
cil announced yesterday that they
would support Acting Mayor Bigelow
in any step deemed necessary to pre
vent an unjustified Increase in milk

Herbert W. Greenland, illustrious
potentate of Ziyera tempie, TJtica, N.
Y., met Herbert Greenland, Portland
tailor, and member of Al Kader tem
ple, the New York Shriner declares
he met a real friend.
Although confined to his bed at the
Hotel Morris during the greater part
of the Shrine convention and for
numerous days following its close.
Potentate Greenland says he enjoyed
the Portland convention to a greater
extent than any similar convention he
has attended. And he has attended
all o.f the Shrine and Masonic con
ventions, reunions and conclaves for
the past 25 years.
Potentate Greenland is a resident of
New Tork state. For 25 years he was
secretary of the Masonic lodge In his
home town, and In addition he has
held virtually every office in every
branch of Masonry in New York state.
And in addition he holds honorary
membership in the Scotish Masonic
Veterans association of Glasgow,
Scotland, the Masonic Veterans asso
ciation of London. England, and the
Masonic Veterans associations in
eight states in the United States.
Enroute to Portland, Potentate
Greenland became ill, but Insisted
upon completing his journey. He at
tended two sessions of the imperial
council, but was unable to see any
of the parades or other attractions.
"Portland Is a wonderful city, and
in all sincerity I say that Portland
outdid everything ever shown at any
previous Shrine convention. Its hos
pitality was a brand unknown to
Shriners heretofore; your entertain
ment was wonderful; the-flowers, the
climate, everything worked into mak
ing the 1920 session the greatest in
th historv of the order. I do not
believe that another convention of the
Shrine will ever be held which can
compare to the Portland meeting."
Mr. Greenland has been active in
Masonrv for more than 40 years. Dur-
insr this neriod he has collected the
autographs of virtually every promt
nent Mason throughout the world. In
spection of these autographs were
made by numerous prominent Masons
of Oregon and they were deciarea 10

Friends,Regardless of Party, Are
Expected to Attend Welcome
Home for Senator.
George E. Chamberlain, Oregon's
senior United States senator, will
speak at the municipal auditorium on
the evening of July 14. The meeting
is not designed to be political, but is
intended to enable the senator to meet
his friends, regardless of party. In
formation to this effect was given out
by Oswald West yesterday.
Senator Chamberlain left Washing
ton yesterday for Oregon, and he will
arrive in Portland about the middle
of the week. Owing to his being ab-
cent during the war period, his posi
tion of chairman of the senate com
mittee on military affairs making it
impossible for him to return to Ore
gon, his friends are preparing a home
coming reception. This reception is
to be at the auditorium. Between the
time of his arrival and the auditorium
gathering the senator will spend his
time with his family.
While no itinerary has yet been
arranged, Senator Chamberlain plans
to make a thorough tour of the state
before returning to Washington. The
tour is to enable him to inquire into
needed harbor improvements and a
number of irrigation projects. Inci
dentally, of course, the senator will
not forget the fact that he is a can
didate for re-election, and while re
newing touch with the various sec
tions of Oregon he will look after
his political fences.
