Cannot Be Filled.
Although the BO union musicians,
operators, stage hands and electri
cians of the Liberty. Peoples, Colum
bia. Majestic and Star theaters -were
called off duty yesterday morning at
TO o'clock, the Portland public saw
the new cinema programmes as sched
uled for that day.
The union walk-out was ordered by
the Theatrical federation of Portland
and vicinity for these five hous;s
under the operation of Jensen & Von
Herberg as a measure in forcing this
firm to comply with the demands of
the Tacoma motion-picture operators,
who have asked a rise from 85 cents
to 1.25 an hour and have been refused
by the four houses operated by the
same company in Tacoma. ine ia

the houses could open and pro.oo3l as

are equally determined to force the

several instances union members came
to the theaters and nskod to b-i put
back at work. It is reported that by
opening time this morning the ma
jority of the regular musicians- will
be in their usual places.
Similar conditions exist in Soattl1!.

under the name of Jensen & Von Her

Von Herberg, it is bald.
Exception ts taken by Mr. Jensen
to the statement issin-1 to the public
yesterday by the Th'ekfrloal 'federa
tion of Portland and vicinity which
infers that the Tacoma operators were
fired. The sentences carrying this
idea are as follows: "The scale was
arbitrated and accepted by all the
managers In Tacoma. except the Jen
sen & Von Herberg managers,- who
called their operators and told them
their services were no longer wanted
and immediately put non-union men
to work." k
"Firing" la Dented.
In no instance have competent union
men been fired, declared Mr. Jensen.
Although he has had nothing to do
with the actual management of, the
Tacoma houses, he asserts, he is posi
tive that substitutes were employed
only arter the managers had found
themselves unable to meet the union
requests and the union had decided to
fight the case.
The statement of the Portland fed
eration is as follows:
On July 1 the Tacoma motion picture
operators, who were working for a smaller
scale and worse conditions than the oper
ators In other cities In the northwest, pre-
snntea to the managers in Tacoma a now
wage scale and working conditions tn
w-outd bring Tacoma up to the standard
of the rest of the northwest district. Th
scale was arbitrated and accepted by ail
the managers in Tacoma except the Jen

their operators and told them their uirv-
- ices were no longer wanted and immetil
ately put non-union men to work, tnere
by causing an unfair condition to all union

ACT WORRIES GROWERS
Culls May Become Worthless If
' Volstead Iaw Is Enforced.
HOOD RIVER. Or.. July 10 (Spe
cial.) Applegrowers are watching
eagerly the effects that the Volstead
Act may have on sales of cull apples.
Manufacturers of sweet cider fear
that the bill may curtail the sales of
the beverage to such extent that cull
apples may be a drug on the market
The law is so drastio that manufac-
. turers declare it will be practically
Impossible to comply with it.
The law prohibits the sale of bever-
tages containing more than a half of
one per cent of alcohol. A case is
cited where students of an agricul
tural college took cider directly from
the presses, carried it several blocks
'to a laboratory and in the test made
discovered that it already had gener
ated an illegal quantity of alcohol.
If the law is strictly enforced, it is
said, growers may have to cut bruised
spbts from their cull apples.
ROYAL ANNES SHIPPED

. HOOD RIVER. Or.. July 11. (Spe
cial.) With the harvest of Royal
' Annes. which is being shipped to
canners, at the peak, and pickers be-
ginning on black varieties of fruit
Indications are that the Hood River
cbtrry crop will be about 85 or 90
per cent of last year, when 10 cars
of Bings, Lamberts and Back Repub
licans were shipped east under re
.. frlgeration. The back cherries will
be marketed similarly this season.
The yield and quality of tie fruit
are-better than was expected 10 days
..ago. The cherry crop here, however,
is later than ever before, the fruit
having ripened very slowly. In nor
' mal seasons cherries are usually all
picked by this time.

REPUBLICAN STATE CENTRAL
Stanfield-Chamberlain Fight for
Senate Expected to Be Big
Campaign Issue in State.
fContinued From First Page.
the fact that the plan of action out
lined in the public press for my
opponent's campaign indicates that
his campaign has already commenced
and that it will be carried on unre
mittingly until election day. In the
face of that situation there remains
nothing else for us to do but to fol
low suit and start our senatorial
campaign without delay.
"I trust your honorable committee
will pardon me for speaking thus
directly, but I believe you will appre
ciate the necessity of a frank state
ment under the circumstances.
"It is perfectly apparent that if
our senatorial campaign is to be
launched immediately, then the funds
for carrying It on must also be pro
vided without delay. The question
naiurany intrudes itself, now snai. .
the funds for this purpose be ob-
Donations Are Discussed.
"In this connection it may not be
generally known that the Oregon
statute prohibits the senatorial can
didate from contributing, even to his
own party's campaign committee, a
greater amount than $750. or 10 per
cent of one year's salary of the office.
"The thought naturally suggests
Itself that a candidate's friends will
contribute sums of money in support
of his candidacy to the committee
conducting the campaign. In some
instances this may occur, but even in
such cases there is a reluctance to
contribute unless, and until, every
other method of raising campaign
funds has been tried and exhausted.
The republican national committee
has very properly taken the stand
that it will not accept individual con
tributions in excess of $1000. On this
basis the. national committee has al
ready received subscriptions amount
ing to $21,500 from republicans of
Oregon and $3500 additional Is now
being collected, making a total of
$25,000 from the state of Oregon. The
total sum now being collected in 48
states is reported on reliable author
ity to be $5,500,000. It is stated that
the democrats are engaged in raising
a similar fund.
"On June 7, 1920, in Chicago. Colonel
William Boyce Thompson of New
York, chairman of the republican
ways and means committee, which has
collected this fund for the national
committee, stated in a public inter
view: "'We want to avoid the necessity
for large single contributions, which
have a tendency to carry with them
in the public mind a suggestion of
improper obligations to the giver, and
at the suggestion of Will H. Hays and
on the authorization of the national
committee, a system of decentralized
collecting has been devised which will,
'we hope, make the financial support
of the republican party as representa
tive as its membership. Each state,
under our present organization, has
a chairman of the ways and means
committee. Each county has a ways
and means committee. Whatever they
I collect will be used in their own dis
Third of Fund Is Asked.
"According to the foregoing every
state will have returned to It by tne
national committee the Whole, or a
portion, of the amount- contributed
by it. Doubtful states will unques
tionably receive a larger share of
this campaign fund than states that
are considered safely republican.
"As an active, Intensive campaign
will have to be made. Insofar as the
senatorial campaign is concerned, it
might be advisable, when the state
central committee receives its share
of this fund, to apportion, say, one
third of that quota to the senatorial
campaign. This would make it possi
ble to initiate and conduct our cam
paign for the senatorship without the
delay that might otherwise ensue.
"My suggestions to your honorable
committee, as above outlined, may be
summarized as follows:
"First An active campaign for the
senatorship should be organized and
put into action without delay.
"Second The national committee
should be called upon to place at the
disposal of the state central committee
all of the money collected in Oregon
by the republican ways and means
committee, or such portion thereof as
may be assigned at this time.
"Third Qf the amount delegated to
Oregon by the national committee,
one-third should be made available
for use In the senatorial campaign."
Resolutions Are Adopted

the republican national, state and
