The business meeting of the Y. P.
S. C. E. or the Christian church., Fri
day night, was not very well attend
ed, but much business of interest
was transacted. Plans were made to
entertain the V. P. S. C. E. of Med
ford. Phoenix and Talent, in the near
future, and committees were appoint
ed to attend to the details.
The annual picnic of the Free
Methodist church was held Friday up
the canyon. As usual, the children
of the party spent a happy day climb
ing the hills and wading in the creek.
The classes were in charge of the
teachers, Mesdames Freeman. Childs,
Hanson, Hatcher and Ashcraft. The
basket dinner which is the chief fea
ture of all picnics, claimed its full
share of attention.
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Casey, Harry
Casey and Miss Lena Casey were en
tertained at dinner Thursday night
by Mr. and Mrs. George G. cgrg, at
their spacious home on North Main
street, the dinner being given in
honor of Mrs. Ogg's cousin, Mrs.
Coolidge of Pasadena, Cal.. who
stopped in Ashland for a few .days'
visit with relatives while on her way
home from an eastern trip.
An interesting meeting of the C.
AV. B. M. was held in the pavilion
in the park Friday afternoon, with
Mrs. O. L. Young as leader. The
following program was preserited:
Bible reading and prayer, Mrs. G W.
Benedict; "The Work in Monterey,
Mexico," Mrs. E. N. Smith; "A Son
of Africa," Mrs. G. W. Milam; "Li
beria," Miss Mae Benedict; reading,
Unawares." Mrs. M. L. Sanders.
During the business session which
followed, Mrs. Sanders was appoint
ed to fill the vacancy in the program
committee. Reports of birthday and
future work committees were also
Among the merry crowds who pic
nicked in the canyon this week was
one composed of fifteen girls belong
ing to- a Congregational Sunday
school class taught by Miss Norma
M inkier. The journey up the canyon
was made In the cool of the morning,
and the return trip was not begun
until late in the afternoon. Even
then the happy day ended all too
oon to suit the small picnickers.
Those in the crowd were Ruth Patty,
Dorothy Howard, Norma Williams,
Alice Brown. Alma Cox, Aliena
Nealy, Geraldine HiflRins, Vanatta

noticed in the park today, and. a
number of others are booked to take
place during- the week. One little
family party was composed of Mr.
and Mrs. F. G. Easton. daughter
Hazel and son Douglass, of Oakland,
Cal., who are registered at the Co
lumbia. J. T. Little and sons Calvin,
Paul and Perry were among the fish
ermen who were trying their luck in
Ashland creek. On the side hills a
party of Ashland girls were seen rest
ing in the shade, and the empty
lunch baskets near the group be
spoke the fact that a picnic dinner
bad been enjoyed. The partv was
composed of Misses Rose Thomas,
Ramona Harrell, Laura Silver, Bes
sie Coon and Madeline Silver. Chau
tauqua Park is indeed a boon to all
during the summer months.
Last Thursday afternoon, when
, JUiss Neva Gearhart was preparing
lor a trip to Medford, a group of her
.young frlf-nds, headed by Miss Doro
thy Jones, quietly entered her home
and tendered her a most successful
surprise in commemoration of her
twelfth birthday. "All kinds of merry
outdoor games were indulged in dur
ing the afternoon. Dainty refresh
ments, brought by the invaders, also
claimed a share of their attention.

pretty and useful girts. Those in at
tendance were Dorothy .Jones, AgneB

A number of Congregational Sun
day school lassies are positive trat
Friday is not "hoodoo day," as many
people think. They declare that their
Friday picnic was better than any
other TWO picnics they 'ever attend
ed. Accompanied by their teacher,
Miss Uose Thomas, the girls made
ifeir way to Bear creek early in the
morning of Friday, and the swinging
bridge over that stream offering
such an opportunity for "fun," the
party looked no fartherfor a suit
able picnic, spot but spent the day
In the vicinity of the bridge. Wad
ing in the creek, playing on the
bridge and swinging in grapevine
swings kept the lassies busy until
late in the afternoon, when they re
luctantly turned their faces home

Rose Thomas, teacher; Misses Ethel
Patty, Lois Leslie, Bessie Mackie,
Lottie Morthland, Bonnis Jennings,
Helen Walker, Florence Higgings,
Dorothy Jones and Mary Dennison.

Second Alleged Assassin of Rosen
thal lieing Sweated.
New York. Charged with being
one of the four assassins who slew
Gambler Herman Rosenthal in front
of the New Metropole Hotel here on
the morning of July 16, Whitey Lew

Police Commissioner Dougherty as
to his knowledge of the crime which

Lewis is the second of the alleged
assassins captured. Dago Frank
Cirofici was first. Lefty Louie
(Louis Rosenseweig) and Harry Hor
rowitz, the other two who are al
leged to have killed Rosenthal at the
command of Police Lieutenant
Charles Becker, are still at large.
The police declare both of them were
with Lewis near Fleischmann, N. Y.,
where he was captured, and that
they are sure soon to be taken.
Stirred by the widespread criticism
of the police since the Rosenthal
murder and by the declaration' of
District Attorney Whitman that if
he wishes to rehabilitate the credit
of the force, he will catch Rosenthal's
slayers. Commissioner Rhinelander
Waldo sent out a general order to
his i 10,000 men, and sppcifically
stated to his inspectors that Harro
witz. and Rosenseweig must be
caught at once. Failure, he threat
ened, would result in a clean sweep
of the detective bureau and the In

novel spectacle was presented of the
entire" police force marching out or
the city under the leadership of the
late secretary of war.
The t police were soon replaced,
however, by a provisional body, and
although there was some desultory
rirlng, comparatively good order was
maintained in the city. An innocent
spectator was killed.
Although, owing to the cutting of
the telegraph wires, it is difficult to
obtain news outside of the capital,
the government claims to control all
but two departments of the republic.

Reaffirms Monroe Doctrine.
Washington, D. C. The senate
foreign relations committee has

Lodge's recommendation that the
United States reaffirm the Monroe
doctrine in terms clear to all the
world, and adopt a resolution to ex
press its disapproval of the. purchase
of any possible naval bases on the
American continents by any foreign
The senate in an early report will
be asked to endorse the committee's
stand. A firm statement ; by the
United States is asked for as the re
sult of the Magdalena Bay incident,
where it was show-n that a Japanese
syndicate had been negotiating for
4,000,000 acres of land along the
eoast of Lower California, in- Mexico.
While the Japanese government
was round to have had no connection
with the syndicate, tne senate sub
committee, consisting of Lodge, Root,
Hitchcock, Rayner and Sutherland,
reported to the full committee that
the circumstances afforded an appro

the United States cannot see "with

advantageous spot, in the western
hemisphere taken over by a foreign
government, or by a rorelgn corpora

threaten the commerce or sarety of
the United States.
Magdalena Bay is considered, the

base on the Paciric coast because of
its relation to the western terminus
of the Panama canal.

Penitentiary Employe Wins Fight
With Seal ion at XevMi-t.
Newport, Ore. Walter Johnson,
the crack shot of the Oregon peni
tentiary guards, had an experience
recently that is likely to nmke the
"trusties" keep their faith when they
hear of it.
Johnson shot a sealion from the
beach the other day and swam out
to get it. The animal was not dead
and put up a fight. Johnson beat It
over the head with his flat until he
had killed it. and then to wed it to
shore, where it took six men to pull
