Portland Strike is Not Much of a

LABORERS ARE PLENTIFUL
Ths Strike Hat Had no Effect on the
Work at tha Lawia and Clark Fair
and Hundred of Man Are
Portland, March 7. With J50 men at
rork on the government building and
about 400 on the American Inn, accord
Ing to contractors, and with about 300
men on the buildings at the south end
of the grounds, the strike of employe
of the contractors for the Lwis and
Clark exposition appears to the out
alder to be almost entirely broken
There were today the usual gathering
of workmen, strikers and agitator
at the exposition gates, and some strlk
era even went so far as to state that
there are but very few men at work
either on the government building or
the American Inn. A casual gtance at
those buildings, however, even from
distance, is sufficient to disprove these
A few men left work this morning,
as there are always changes In the
staff, but the number of applicants for
positions was much larger than the
number of men who left their jobs.
Contractor W. R. Griffith reported
more men applied than he could give
positions, so that as far as he Is con
cerned the strike is over. Foreman
W. Q. Chalmers of the Burrell Con
struction Company, had as many men
as he wanted, and was replacing some
laborers with first-class tradesmen
For J. E. Bennett it was stated that
I 2S per cent of the men on the gov
ernment building are men who were
there before the strike. The others are
rood workmen, and no man gets the
carpenter's wage of 13.50 for an eUht
hour day on that building unless he
proves himself a competent carpenter.
The work is not crippled now on that
building, It Is stated, although Mr.
Bennett is ready to take on men until
he has the force up to 470. as previous
to the strike.
At the employment bureau on the
grounds men are still presenting them
selves for work, though not in quite
such large numbers as yesterday. Some
of them come from outside towns, at
tracted hither by the reports of the
strike. Some have recently worked as
far north as Nelson, B. C, but these
were Induced to come here rather by
reports of the exposition work than
because of the strike.
A number of policemen at the gates
this morning took no action further
than to disperse knots of men who
had gathered on the sidewalk, ob
structlng the passage, and to see that
men coming from the cars to work
were not molested by pickets. There
was no disorder of any kind, and the
enthusiasm of the agitators was con
siderably lessened today.
Labor leaders still profess to believe
they will win the strike, but many oi
the workmen admit they consider all
Mormon Fired Out of the New Jeru
alem. Salt Lake City, March 7. Formei
United States Senator Frank J. Can
non has been expelled from the Mor
mon church for "unchristian-like con
duct and apostacy." Mr. Cannon ha
been an elder of the church. This ac
tion of the church authorities followed
a hearing In the city of Ogden before
the local bishopric with whom charges
had been preferred against Elder Can
non, who is editor of the Salt Laki
Tribune. The charges were base! on
editorial utterances of the Tribune, In
cluding "an address to the earthly
king of the kingdom of God." Mr.
Cannon admitted the authorship when
called before the court and reaffirmed
his editorial utterances. The official
report of the proceedings states that
Elder Cannon, In answer to the Ques
tion, "Do you sustain Joseph F. Smith
as head of the churchr replied:
"No, as president, Joseph F. Smith
is leaving the worship of God to the
worship of idols or mammon, and 1
leading the people astray."
Joektya Are Up Against the Ral
Chicago, March 7. All the trainer
Jockeya and horsea that. have partici
pated In the city park track meeting
at New Orleans, were catalogued
among the list of outlaws by the.btmrd
of stewards of the Western Jock Club
at their monthly meeting here today.
This action by the stewards menu
tflat the fight for supremacy between
the Western Jackey Club and the new
organisation controlled by Edward
Corrtgan is to be a fight to a finish and
in all probability will result In the
closing of Chicago race tracks for this
season at least.

Gobble Up the Forest Reserve
EXCHANGE FOR LIEU LANDS
Law of 1897 Enacted in the Interest
of Timber Syndicate Enabling
Thm to Exchange Thousand
of Acre of Poor Land.
Washington, March 7. Two and one
half million acres of timber land will
be saved to the government by the
operation of a short act to which
President Roosevelt affixed his slgna
ture during the last moments of the
58th congress. The act prohibits the
selection of timber lands In exchangi
for lands which have been Included
within forest reserves. It was In 189"
that the lieu law was enacted. It had
no restrictions, simply entitling per
sons holding lands in forest reserves
to make selections elsewhere In ex
change for their forest reserve lands.
In 1900 these lieu selections were limit
ed to surveyed lands. Since the pass
age of these acts, nearly two million
acres of forest reserve lands have been
exchanged for other lands and almost
universally has the exchange been
made for timbered lands outside of for
est reserves. Nearly half of this land
so exchanged is owned by the land
grant railroads. A report to congress
from the commissioner of the general
land office places the amount of lands
still 'held by these roads In forest re
serves at two and one half million
acres, and the provision In the act In
question, that hereafter lieu selections
must be made from untlmbered lands,
calculated to save Just that mu'h
timbered land which is outside of for.

Conflict Between the Crown and
POLITICAL LEADERS VIEWS
A Conflict Sm Probable in Hungari
Over Army Condition Whion th
Crown RtfuM t Chang and
Vienna, March 7 Judging by re
port received from Uuda Pent, a con
flict between the crown and the Hun
garian nations appears possible and
even probable. The contending Inter
est cannot agree- on the matter of
military reform and particularly on
the use of the Hungarian tongue In
the Hungarian army as the languact
of command, Hungarians declaring
that this reform must be Instituted and
the emperor that It is Impossible.
Neither side shows signs of weaken.
Ing and the question of .language of
command 1 more pregnant of danger
today than ever before.
Six out of It Hungarian political
leader have already been received in
audience by the emperor. They and
others who were received In audience
before these si were called to Vienna
have made It known that the emperor
declares that the military1 demands of
the united oppohitlnn parties nre In
admissible, characterising them a
meddling and an Intrusion upon his
prerogatives. In these interview tw
emperor spoke feelingly and with deep
conviction of the necessity for an un
divided and strong army always rea.lv
for battle. He said he could not per
mit existing conditions In the army to
be altered and asked tn politicians
with whom be conferred to use theli
effort to persuade the united opposi
tion to exclude th demands for mill -1
tary reform from their program. ThH

composing the opposition Insist th !

A LETTER TO MOTHERS
Mrs. Charles Iry of Glen Falls,
N. Y. writes: "1 wish I could Induce
every mother who has a weak, sickly
child to try that delicious cod liver oil
preparation, Vlnol. We were so wor
ried about our little daughter h had
lost flesh, was thin, pule and sickly,
and nothing seemed to do her an)
good. Having heard of Vlnol we de
cided to try It, and the result were
marvellous. Her appetlt has been
restored and she I gaining In weight
right along, the color has returned to
her cheeks and she seem stronger than
she has for years,"
Every mother In Astoria I asked to
try Vlnol on our guarantee to make
children robust, strong and healthy o-
return money It It fulls. Vlnol Is a
pure cihI liver oil preparation, but
without a drop of oil to upset the stom
ach and retard Its work. It 1 delicious
to the tuste and children love it. It
doe not taste, nor look, nor smell like
a cod liver preparation yet U is.
We have never sold unythlng In our
store equal to Vlnol to create strength
fur old people, weak, sickly women snd
children. Chus. Roger. DruNKlt.

To Build Robust lloalih
start at the foundation of life and health. Assist your

Indigestion follow if your digestive organs are out of
