- by Senator Booth, president of the Lay
men's association, in which hs promised
on behalf of the laymen that ministers
would not have this year or next to fear
in any respect for the hearty support of
eaah congregation In the Oregon con
ference. Continuing Bishop Moore said:
"Power of attracting peopls to church
does not lie in the magnetism or at
least should not of the m In inter's ora
torical ability. I should feel indeed sad
If I thought just my plain self waa suf
ficient to attract people to toe house of

"Don't remain away from prayer
meeting on damp, rainy, cold night. If
ever there was a feeling to do so, then
Is the time. - But you should come out
even If it Is a sacrifice, end by so doing
you encourars your minister. If you
must remain at home, do so on the
bright, sunny days snd moonlight nights
- when It is reasonably certain that a
goodly congregation will be in attend
ance. "But with Ood there la no remaining
at home.' You who desire pastoral serv
ices are deeply Interested Just now in
who your pastors will be. And this
is right. You who support the church
are the ones to choose snd I do not
blame you for demanding!. Iht best you
fan secure. ...... -
"We of ' the preachers are to be of
you: we are to visit your homes, see
?our children, guide them in ways re
Igious snd 'develop tneir strength in
the Lord through Jesus Christ, again,

be deeply interested In these appoint
ments, -'"On the ether hand It is your sacred
duty to aid us. Stand "with us in our
earnest endeavors to uplift and bring
to God's throne all. We can best give
our services if we have no worry about
financial matters whjeh- relate to our
living. No minister of the gospel can
-do himself or his floelt true-ustlee if
part of ills time is devoted to worry
about money to live upon. We do not
' demand great compensation, but we

Bell saw Mrs. wsymlre eariy Thurs

as to just what she should do. .

' "AccdrdlngJto the story told by Bell
both he end Raddlng had been keeping
company with the woman for , aome
month a However a fsr a : Bell's
story goes, there does not seem to be
any evidence of jealousy on his part.
- Bell has known the woman about
four months. For weeks he hss been
unusually Interested In her and four

calling on Mayor Lane he had hi sus
Raddlng, too. It seems, wss also sua-

ng to Bell tt was on this account that!
he was on the sixth floor of the Ham
ilton building when he heard a wo
man's cries coming from the curtained
office of the mayor .
Several weeks ago Bell say he spoke
to Mrs. . Waymlre about her frequent
visits to the mayor at his down-town
office. He was naturally suspicious
and in the interests of the woman'
welfare told her that he did not under
stand why th chief executive did not
have her call at the city hall-Instead
of at his private of flea
Spoke Highly ef xayoiw :
Mra Waymlre explained that Mayor
Lane was always too busy at the Hall
to allow his proper consideration of her
case. She always apoxe or Mr. jutne in
the highest term and said thst he had
beep kind to her. Bell says he never
understood why the completion of the
taak that Mra. Waymlre requested had
not been brought at an earlier date and
with less trouble.
"Mra Wavmlre was very anxious to
have her child, 6 year old. brought to
Portland from Kanaa city, tieii saia

rled over this a good deal, and all of us
were anxious that her wishes be ful
filled. . .
"Naturally, II didn't think anything
about the' matter when Ma Waymlre
first begsn going to see tne mayor.
Later, , however, it occurred to me that
It was rather queer that he never
went to the city hall to see the chief
executive. I became auspicious. It was
at thla time that I spoke to Mrs. Way
mlre about It. Her explanation was
that Mr. Lane explained to her that
hs would have more time to consider
her case at hla private office.
"Raddlng as I understand It, wss
slso suspicious. He wss Interested. In
the women and It was on this account,
I think, that took him to ths Hamil
ton building Thursday evening. , I do
not put any faith in the stories about
blackmail. I do not think Mra Way
mlre was that kind of a girl.
"She related to me part of the retail
of the encounter Thursday evening. Her
Story is altogether different from those
that have already been printed.
"Mra Waymlre told me that that
evening the mayor attempted to take
hold of her hand. Later he put his
hand on her shoulder. She resented his
actions when he took hold of her and
her screams followed shortly afterward.
Mrs Wsymlre said that she wa alto
gather blameless in the affair."
