Municipal Judge Reverses
Stand in Campaign.
Jui1 st Declares That Experience
Has Changed Sympathies
to Some Extent.
"With the threatened I. W. "W. in
vasion of Portland a complete and
miserable failure, police officials
asrain turned their attention to local
members of the outlaw organization
yesterday, and in a. wholesale raid
on the I. W. W. hall. 109 ft Second
street, arrested 60 self-proclaimed
The 60. all of whom had been be
fore the municipal court and who
had been released by Municipal
Judge Ekwall, were locked up on
charges of vagrancy. Orders Issued
yesterday by Police Chief Jenkins
definitely closed the I. W. W. head
quarters and further attempt to
hold meetings there will result in
more wholesale raids.
The day was a quiet one' as far as
the longshoremen's strike was con
cerned. Picket lines were reduced,
according to police reports. No vio
lence was attempted. Non-union
men went to and from their work
without molestation.
Radicals Held Cowed.
The prompt and decisive action by
the city's mayor and chief of police
has evidently thoroughly cowed the
radicals. Despite appeals for "foot
loose pickets to march on Portland,"
circulated among all 1. W. W. of
the northwest, none have responded
to the call. Even the ordinary hobos
map Itineraries that do not include
this city: Though police squads
searched all incoming fretght trains
yesterday they were able to find but
one hobo and that hobo was simply
a runaway 17-year-old boy.
Friction between the police and
the municipal court, though, has
given courage to the L W. W. who
claim Portland as their temporary
home. Sixteen members of the or
der' who faced Judge Ekwall yes
terday were released. Some had
been arrested in the wholesale raids
of Wednesday night. The court
showed a slight irritation at the ac
tion of the bluecoats. Judge Ekwall
frankly admitted that his associa
tion with the radicals had made him
a bit of a radical himself. It hap
pened during the examination of a
foreigner who had been caught in
the dragnet. The court asked the
prisoner if he was an I. W. W.
Judge Changes Views.
"No, I wasn't, until X was put In
jail last night. Now I am one,
though," the defendant answered.
"Well, I was made something of
a radical myself, yesterday," the
jurist answered.
Despite the apparent 'Change of
attitude. on the pan or the munici
pal' court, the police continued their
campaign against the undesirables.
No deportation parties were held
yesterday due to the lack of ma
terial furnished by the court.
Between midnight Friday and
o'clock last night, 95 persons, SO
of whom were avowed 1. W. W.,
were arrested. Twenty-five were
picked up in the I. W. W. hall and
about the streets. Eighteen were
released after examination by the

Daugherty, making his only cam
paign speech to the voters of his
home state, tonight gave an ac
counting of his stewardship at

the Chicago injunction proceedings
and in the prosecution of war frauds
and declared that despite "accusa

its duties as it sees them under the
In the strike emergency, the attorney-general
said, the federal
government used the injunction as
the least drastic means at hand for
rescuing the country "from the grip
of civil war." He ascribed some of
the blame "to the radicalism and
character" of prominent labor lead
ers and some of it to "hard-boiled"
railway executives, and asserted that
any attorney-general who r would
not have acted under the circum
stances "should be impeached."
Td Spot Declared Hit.
Mr. Daugherty, declaring the real
purpose of attacks on the depart
ment's record in war frauds investi

government tand prematurely dis

assaults had been inspired! not by
the department's inactivity, but be
cause tender " spots had been
touched by the suits already under

"We would have heard little criti
cism of the department of justice,"
he said, "had it not been discovered
that a case like the chemical foun

public officials to companies, which
they themselves had organized) was
under investigation, and . the part

and a sound basis for agriculture
are among the biggest problems
confronting the country, William G.

"It is estimated that the cost of

be increased by the Fordney-McCumber

Production is on the increase and

Women's College Heads Would
Banish High Heels, Ear Bobs,
False Curls and "Rats."
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
CHICAGO. Oct. 21. Long "slink
er" skirts, with their attendant
high-heeled shoes and ear bobs and
false curls and "rats," were roundly
denounced today by deans of wom
en's colleges in Illinois, in session
here. . All deplored the departure of
the short skirts and bobbed hair and
low, comfortable shoes, which helped
breed a healthy,, vigorous race of
The deans agreed that the new
styles, in addition to being ungrace
ful would result in poor health for
the girls who follow them. The long
skirts will hamper their movements
and deprive them of grace. The nar
row shoes with high heels will re
sult in stilted, painful locomotion
and the wearing of false hair will
be injurious to their own hair, their
scalps and their sight. '

draped costumes drag the ground

gests that new garments, including
draperies and panels, should be no

Senate Election to Be
Volstead Referendum.
Frelinghuysen and Edwards
Now Fill Arena.
Thirsty, Resentful Voters and
Prohibitionists to Forget
Parties in . Choice.
NEW YORK, Oct. 21. (Special.)
According to the law, as set down
in the statute books, the sovereign
state of New Jersey will hold an
election next month, to select a gov
ernor, a Unitea States senator, 13
representatives in congress and
various minor officials. What actuals
iywill happen is that the state of
Jersey Justice and Applejack is to
have a solemn referendum on the
subject of prohibition.
Not that anybody expects that
New Jersey will be able to set aside
the Volstead law. Not at all. But
moderate and Immoderate drinkers
hope to make such a demonstration
of force as will impress congress
with the necessity of reforming the
present unpopular one-half per cent
Wets and Drys In Fight.
The standard bearers in the fight
are United States Senator Freling
huysen, republican, who hopes to be
re-elected on a dry platform, and
Edward I. Edwards, the present
governor, who does very little drink
ing himself, but is as wet as a
cloudburst. Edwards was elected
governor of the state on the wet
issue three years ago, and is making
his present campaign along the same
In ordinary political battles it is
the nominees for governor who hold
the center of the stage. In New
York, for example. Senator Calder
and Dr. Royal S. Copeland, his op
ponent, are minor leaguers as com
pared with Governor Miller and ex
Governor "Al" Smith. But Jersey-
ites are not interested in the battle
for chief executive. It is doubtful
if a majority of the voters know
who is running. It is a certainty
that a majority does not care in the
slightest. The one subject of inter
est, the one matter that is talked
about is "Will Eddie trim Joe, or
will Joe lick Eddie?"
Expenditures Not Limited.
Frelinghuysen comes from Rarl
tan, down in the center shore sec
tion of the state. He is a big. im
pressive looking man and lnde
pendently wealthy. The way things
are going he may not be so wealthy
when the campaign closes. For New
Jersey doesn'l have any of those
"campaign expenditure limit" laws
It is presumed that a gentleman
knows how much money he wants
to spend and, it is regarded as bad
form to ask him about it later. So
Senator Frelinghuysen will be per
mitted to go the limit in tact, he
may be urged to do so.
Edwards is a lawyer from Jersey
City and only fairly well off. Ed
wards has been active in democratic
politics for. a long time, serving In
the state senate. before he became
governor. He is an able debater, a
fine handshaker and Is not a bit
afraid to come out with straight
forward attacks n the present pro
h."bition law.
Edwards Is Shrewd.
There Is no "pussyfooting" about
EdWards. He is a shrewd politician
and thoroughly realizes that his one
chance of success Is to "ride" in"
on the ' anti-Volstead sentiment.
When Edwards ran for governor
three years ago he promised that

Formal Action Probably to Be
Taken as Result of Over
zealous Dry Agents.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 21.
Formal apology probably will be
made by the state department to
the British government for the ac
tion of overzealous prohibition en
forcement officers in seizing the
Canadian schooner Emerald, with a
liquor cargo, beyond the three-mile
limit off the New Jersey coast, it
was learned today upon high
i. A thorough investigation which
has been conducted by the treasury
department, it was . stated, has es
tablished that the seizure of the
Emerald calls for an official expres
sidn of regret by the American gov
ernment. A report of the treasury
department to Secretary of State
Hughes will admit that the Emerald
did nt establish contact with the
Jersey coast and that members of
the crew did not land, facts which
prove that the seizure was unwar
ranted. The Emerald T"as "captured" by
the "dry navy" chaser Hahn, about
eight miles off the Jersey coast.
The Hahn trained her guns on the
Emet-ald and brought her into the
port of New York. Officials of the
prohibition enforcement bureau con
tended that the Emerald was plan
ning to land liquor in the United
States, but admitted that there was
no evidence of smuggling.
The seizure of Jthe Emerald was
followed by protests from the Brit
ish government through the em
bassy in Washington challenging
the right of the United States to
search or seize ships beyond the
three-mile limit. The protest will
now be answered with an expression
of regret that the zealousness of
the prohibition officers carried them
too far.

the Associated Press.) David Lloyd
George, the retiring prime minister,
speaking at a great meeting of
coalition liberals here this after
noon, declared the "banner of party
strife" had been hoisted at the re
cent meeting of conservatives at the
Carlton club, which voted against
continuing the coalition.
"It is for the people of this coun

whether party comes first or the
nation first. I stand for the peo
ple." Mr. .Lloyd George asserted that
the combination which had achieved
the victory in the late war had been
brought to an end, not because it
had ceased to serve the nation, but
because a party was not getting
enough out of it

He then launched into a vigorous
defense of his administration.
"I have . sought hpnestly, sin
cerely and within my dominant pur
poses to serve my native land to the
best of my ability," said Mr. Lloyd
George. "In the war the govern
ment did everything it could. I am
told: You may have been a very
good war minister, but you are no
good in peace. War is not a bad
test and I have done a few thing
in peace."

ThOBe who were expecting a sen
sational announcement from the re
tiring premier were disappointed.
There was no suggestion of the
formation of a new party.
Mr. Lloyd George declared ths
whole bent of his mind was demo- .
cratic and progressive and he ar
dently defended the coalition as an
instrument by which the country
had done its part in winning the
war and through which reconstruc
tion had been effected.
Further along In his speech Mr.
Lloyd George said:
"I promise the people of this eoun-
try that whatever the future may .
bring forth I will do nothing mean
or jjaltry. I will not play any part
which is unworthy of the confidence
that has been placed in me.

"My whole bent of mind is demo
cratic and progressive. They do not
like it (he was referring to his po
litical opponents), and they have got
to like it less and less. I stand
where I have always stood for the
same sound progress."-
Alluding to the United States, Mr.
Lloyd George said:
