Mon since Friday evening at the First
Congregational church. Many good
speakers have been engaged for the ses

has so far developed. The theme for
the entire three days has been "A
Larger Vision; the Inward Look, the
Outward Look, and the Upward Look.
and tha meetings of the convention have
been vary wall attended.
Yesterday Charles A. Shaw opened the
arternoon discussion with "Our Oppor

with the opportunities opened through
Christian Endeavor work. Ha waa fol

livered a atrong address on "The Plat
form Upon Which the Christian Cltisen
i ha majority is wrong." said Mr.
McAllister, "M times out of 100, and
the minority Is always right." An ex
tended study of economics and sociology
has led Mr. McAllister to the conclusion
that conservatism never wins, and those
who have accomplished results. Ilka

Luther, have always bean In a decided
Rev. J. E. Snyder of Vancouver spoke
of the "Responsibility of Soul Winning,"
and said that the greatest Joy of ths
Christian life waa found in the consola

demonstrate tha efficiency of the life
he la living and make the desirability
of the Christian life aelf-appaseat

The evening program waa opened with
a vocal solo by Miss CI eland, after which
Rev. Paul Rader discoursed on the "Up

liam Shaw waa delayed by a late train
and arrived only In time to direct a
few well-selected remarks not altogether
complimentary to Seattle, from which
place he bad Just come, by way of In
troduction to his Portland audience,
which he will address this evening. Ob
account of this circumstance Mr. Radar
was given the entire evening and used
his time to advantage

The repeated requests of representa
tives of the Exporters' association for
a larger police guard at the various
docks caused Msyor Lane to call a con
ference et hta office late yesterday i't
ernoon of representatives of both the
exporters end the Waterfront FeO.-s
tlon. J. Couch Flanders. Captain Brown
and E A. Pattulo for the former and J.
A. Medsen. P. D. HaU and Oscar Melby
for the letter.
The exporters declared that they need
more policemen end that thsy also wsnt
policemen detailed as escorts for strike
breakers passing from one dock to an
other. The unionists asserted that no
policemen ere needed on the docks at
all, that it la a renection on ineir ciu
aanshlD that policemen should be sta
tioned there. They said that the strike
has so far been conducted in an en
tirely peaceable manner and that 'the
rank and file has promised not to In

Insisted, however, on tneir ngnr to
speak to passing strike-breakers snd

time gave her reasons for her belief.
Her testimony may be sufficient to con

Aa a result of their efforts to extort
.the woman's story from her. officials
last night declared that they bed by no

Thpugh no official statement waa given
out with reference to what transpired
during the secret session, it IS states
that a warrant le to be issued for

'This firm tins nothing whatever to

Mr. Spencer. 'The Colurabls docks are

The widow of ths murdered man also
expressed her belief thet -Perry had
left Ksnsas City on reading the news
paper accounts of the crime and his al
leged connection with it. She declared
the statement that Perry waa Snyder's
cousin waa erroneous, saying thst there
waa no relationship between the two
men. He visited at their home near
Olencoe before the bank robbery, she
said, and had not been seen since the
disappearance of her husband.
In their efforts to clear away the
mystery surrounding ths double crime,
officers have been unable to establish
ths Identity of the other man who la
aald to have taken part in ths bank,
robbery and the murder of Snyder. For
a .time It waa believed that Leonard
Bell, a noted nitroglycerine artist, who
haa figured In numerous Crimea, may
have been here at the time. Informa
tion from Kansas City, however. Is to
the effect that ha, was confined In the
state penitentiary at the time of the
Forest Orove bank robbery and the mur
der of Snyder.
Officials who are conducting ths In
vestigation express themselves as fair
ly wen satisfied with the result of
yesterday's Interview with Mr. Sny

what action will be taken aa the result
of ths light the woman threw upon
A. L. Cooper, attorney for R. M.
Snyder, denlea that his client has sealed
the Hps of ths widow. He declares
that the elder Snyder Is desirous of
bringing the murderers to trial. Ths
Journal received the following from
Kansas City last night:

Snyder Is out of the city. A. L. Cooper,
personal attorney for Snyder, also
Carey Snyder's attorney In the robbery
trials here, says he Is assured no con

she understands them before she left
Kansas City for Oregon.

widow In Cooper's office before she left
Snyder Is desirous of having his son's
slsyer brought to Justice. Cooper says
that there was only one motive and only
one person who could hove killed Carey.
He wouldn't say who the person was or
what ths motive, but ssys the widow
can tell. The lawyer says Mr. Snyder
heard of conversations between Carey
and a companion In which Carey re

although he was urged to do so,

All of them were smaller than their

It Is said tht the Upper classmen
