The presidential postmasters of Ore
gon In convention assembled this morn
ing spoke strongly In favor of the gov
ernment postal savings bank aed urged
that every poatofflce be authorized to
act as depository. W. T. Cavanaugh,
postmaster at Olympla, Wash., In
structor In how to conduct the postal
banks, was one of the leaders In tbe dis
F. J. Carney, postmaster at Astoria,
read a report Bhowlng that since the
postal savings bank was opened In con
nection with his offlae on May 1, 111,
170 have been deposited, 185 Individual
accounts having been opened. Mr. Car
ney called attention to the fact that
the money that flowed Into the office j
was not drawn from the banks, but was
taken from the "ash barrel or the stock
ing" and that hence it meant Just that
much additional money In circulation.
Should Bais limit.
"I believe, however," said Mr. Carney,
that the limit should ' be raised, or
multiplied by five, so that instead of
limiting a depositor to $100 a month,
It should be $500, with a total deposit
of $2500 Instead of $500. Of course. It
is possible to convert every $600 deposit
Into savings bonds, so that one is not
deprived from depositing , more than
$500, but I think business would be
very much facilitated wera the limit
raised to, say $2500, with a limit of
$500 on monthy deposits. But, at any
rate, the system Is a good one and
should have been adopted 25, years ago."
Others spoke very strongly In favor
of the savings bank and . resolutions
will probably be passed to that effect.
One of the features of the morning
session of the convention which Is
being held In the assembly room of the
Portland Commercial club was a visit
from a committee of postmasters from

(United Preu Leaied Wire.)
Washington, June 8. The senate fl
nance 'committee today agreed to report
Tuesday the reciprocity agreement with
the Root amendment ... without recom
mendatlon. The Root amendment, which
is opposed by President Taf t, provides
that the pulp paper, and the print paper
clause shall become effective when all
Canadian -provinces ' agree to free ex
portation of these products. -
The original agreement provides that
reciprocity in this respect shall become
Immediately effective with such prov
inces as now permit exportation. The
backers of. reciprocity say that the
amendment would effectually block the
agreement as far as print and pulp
paper go, because, it is asserted, Quebec
province would never accept unrestrict
ed exportation of pulp wood.
Senators Lodge, La Follette, Smoot,
Dallinger, Clark of Wyoming, Heyburn,
Simons and Bailey favored tbe Root
amendment in committee. Senators
Penrose, McCumber, Cullom, Stone, Wil
liams and Kern opposed it. Johnson of
Maine was absent. The vote on Lodge's
motion to report the bill favorably was
seven to seven. Falling to pass on
Heyburn's motion to report unfavorably
the vote was similar.- The committee
then decided to report without recom
mendation. .- -

Judge Bean in the United States court
this morning; announced the government
would not be allowed to delay needlessly -the
matter of selecting or rejecting
block "S" as a poatofflce site, and inti
mated that the question must be settled
definitely within a few days.
The matter of forcing the govern- ;
ment's hand In the poatofflce site matter
was brought ,up by . A." King Wilson. ,,
attorney for the Espy Estate company,
owners of half of the block. Mr. Wilson '
said he did not know how to go about
it legally, but he told the court h
thought the owners of the property war
entitled to have the government tak '
Judgment or reject the block altogether.
Judge Bean said he thought ' Mr.
Wilson had no right to move that Judg
ment be taken on the verdict of the Jury '
in the condemnation suits, as that right
was reserved to the plaintiff, and as ther"
law fixe the time for moving a new .
trial or taking an appeal at a certain '
number of days after Judgment la en- '
tcred, the owners of the property -seem
to have no way of entering court on a -
motion. He said, however, he agreed
with Mr. Wilson that the owner were -.
entitled either to receive their $340,000
from the government or to be free again
to do as they liked with their property,
and that the government must tak y'
some action within a few day to settlo .'"
the question one way or another. -
It has been generally understood that .
Senator Bourne has undertaken to have -
the purchase" price of the property fixed v
at $325,000, which would bo a saving of
$15,000 on the price fixed by tno juris
in tbe condemnation suits,: and that the
government is awaiting the outcome of ,
negotiations for the lessar figure before .
taking formal action on the verdicts of
