vlth those who oppose any form of

',' " , Misstatements Are Made.
Xq lt late! literature this assocla

"assa.se of water power legislation."
rhla Is far from the fact, as 1'inchot
a advocating the enactment of the
"errla bill, a measure that has the sp
roval of the administration. Pirvchot.
iowever, la not advocating tby kind
if legislation wanted by theyower
nterests.
!, President Wilson, In a letter lo'Cnn-
;reesmn Kent some time ago, referred
to the Shields bill In a way that Indi
cated to the minds of most readers
that It Is likely to" encounter a pres!
dentist veto If it should be pacd In
the form approved by the nste.
IJouse leaders have indicated tiat It
will be radically amended before It is
reported -.to that body.'
. Myera BUI Also Scrutinised.
House leaders are convinced hat the
recapture provisions of the Shields bill
ar hedged about with so many ifu and
ands that It Is practically valuers. It
would require tne government to pur
chase the entire plant developed under
It at , "fair . value," Instead of merely
that part directly used and neofd In
the development of the water power.
For these reasons. It was decleted by
progressive members of the senate to
mount to a grant in perpetuity, be
cause the dlfflcnltiea of recovering the
plant to the government would have
praotlcnlly that effect.
The Myers substitute for the Ferris
bill, reported by the eenate committee
on public lands, has received trie ap
proval of the Water Power Develop-,
mf nt aesooiatlon.Vuuo, which causes it
to be-viewed with even closer scrutiny.
.The Myers bill is regarded an being
4 half way measure between the prin
ciple Of federal control and safeguards
for public Interests in the Feiris bill
and of state control and slackness In
the Shields bill. It was reported In a
form unsatisfactory to Its author In
.order to speed It upon Its way.
This temporary advantage seerna to
J save availed little, aa other measures,
preparedness, pood roads and rural
credits, have crowded It aside, and
many other candidates Jor congres
sional favor are preparing to conteat
V he pathway from now, on to the i '.d
of ths session. The Myers bii:. while
mnome rejipects satisfactory to the
iwater powefr Interests, is delayed by
itnoee surne interests, because, if it
Were passed, the question of water
power legislation would rro !nto con
ference, end the ultimate bill might
not please them.
. In this situation the private Inter
ests prefer there should be no legisla
tion, awaiting the time when they hope
to have views more favorable tu per
petual ownership or state control re

John B. Coffey, in answer to the

the Lincoln Republican club regarding
the conduct of the county clerk's pf-
ifice, has compiled and furnished the

in 1912, when a record number of
. cases for the period preceding the In
cumbency of John B. Coffey as county
j clerk were tried.
j During 300 Jury casea were
tried at a cost of 1158.10 per case,

298 Jury cases were tried, which cost
$35,767.25. and during the first half
of ' 1915, 280 cases were tried, at a
cost of 133,593.60. For the flrbt half
of 1916, the number of Jury cases is
only 20 less than for the entire year
of 1912, yet the cost Is approximately
$1,000 less.
Business Greatly Increased.
He points out that the buslnef-s of
the courts has greatly increased in the
last three yeart, while he has been
In office, and of course the aggregate
cost has grown with the amount of
business, but he maintains thbt the
cost per case has not increased.
"The county clerk has not the slight
est control over the amount of busi
ness or the number of cases that come
before the courts," said Mr. Coffey.
"If the number of cases" and court
costs Increase 100 per cent, the county
clerk cannot etop them. Every Jury
case that is filed and is tried adds to
the total cost for jurors and witnesses.
AU this office can do Is to handle in an
efficient and economical manner the
work that the public brings to it."
Mr. Coffey has compiled figures
covering the years 1910 to 1912 in
clusive, which were immediately pre
ceding his administration, and cover
ing 1913 to 1915 inclusive of his ad
ministration.
Big Jump Xs Shown.
These figures show that during the
laat three years, as compared with the
preceding three. 6080 mora cases were
filed in the circuit court, 300 more cases
filed in the probate court, and 278
more caaes were closed and put into

The total cost for jurors during the
first period was $106,957.55 and for
the second period it was $191,314.10
The total cost for witnesses during
the first period was $15,920.03 and
fot the second period it was $23,027.05
This does not Include the meals and
i rooms for Jurors, which during the
first period cost $2752.66. and for the
second was $6858.80. Mr. Coffey
pointed out that the county clerk has
no control whatever over these mat
tera, as they are entirely up to the

San Francisco, May 1. (U. P.)
Holding that there is no special law
governing the Immigration of Japanese
such as regulates the entrance of
Chinese into the United States, Fed
eral Judge Maurice T. Doollng today
dismissed th deportation proceedings
started against Msysutara Nakao, 17,
by the port authorities.
Nakao entered this country under
the law that permits entrance of rela
tlvea of well-to-do Japanese. He de
sired, he said, to become a student.
The Immigration officers, declared that
he was very likely to become a public
charge, as his father here cannot sup
port him.
After questioning the lad, Judge
Doollng asserted that Nakao, In the
event that be did not succeed in his
smbition to become a student, was
fitted to earn his own living better
than many American born Japanese,
The immigration authorities may ap

iL DEFENSE IN
THE PLATFORM OF THE
Suffrage, Tariff Commission
and Opening of Alaska Al
so Given Place.
Seattle. Wash., May 1. (U. P.)
Demands for defense against foreign
aggression, a general condemnation of I
the Wilson administration and the
advocacy of woman suffrage nd a
tariff . commission were the salient
features of the platform adopted by
the King county Republican conten
tion here today.
Hiram E. Hadley, former chief Jus
tice of the state supreme court and a
brother to Congressman Linn Hadley
of Bellingham, was permanent chair
man. . William T. Lauba, formerly sec
retary of the State senate, now chair
man of the King county Republican,
committee, was made King county's
member of the state platform commit
tee. The "country" members agreed
to support W. C. Weeks of South Bend
as a candidate for delegate to the Re
publican national convention. The
King county sentiment is for an un
lnstructed delegation to the Chicago
convention.
Th platform condemns the national
administration for its failure, accord
ing to promise, to make free tolls for
American coastwise vessels through the
'Panama canal; favors the enlargement
of the federal army and navy for de
fense; favors a non-partlssn tariff
commission; favors the opening up of
Alaska resources; condemns th Demo
cratic administration of the affairs of
this state; declares for a constitutional
convention; denounces the attempt to
do away with party organization, and
indorses the principle of national wom

Washington, May 1. (I. N. S.)
A program 4o put the American navy
in -econd place within thre. year, and
S fleet built upon a definite, well bal
anced plan designed to produce and
maintain a fighting naval force of a
aise to meet any emergency a real
preparedness program will be offered
to the country within a short time.
It will have the approval of Admiral
Dewey and the naval general board.
The board, of which Admiral Dewey Is
president, has been working on tho
plan for the last 10 days. Representa
tive Thomas 8. Butler, ranking Re
publican member of the house naval
affairs committee, decided after a con
ference with Kis associates that a five
year building program waa too slow,
as even at the end of that time th
United States navy probably would he
third or a poor fourth among the fleets
of the warld.
Hove to Be Bon-roiitlcav
After, having reached this decision,
Butler conferred with Secretary Dan
iels, who agreed to ask the general
board to supply Butler with the infor
mation desired, such Information to b
presented to congress. It was explained
to Secretary Daniels that it was the
wish of the group of men desiring to
see th United States in second place
within three years to promote such a
scheme without any political considera
tions. Every effort will be made, after
the report1 is presented to congress, to
enlist the aid of congressmen of all
parties. Representative Butler is not
partisan in his effort
Butler Is xros-Mllitarlst.
The strangest part of the move is
that It originated with Butler, who is
a Quaker and at no time has advocated
greatly increased armament Develop'
ments in the orient, such aa the build
ing by Japan of four new cruisers, Just
suthorUed, have convinced Congress
man Butler that the safety of this na
tion demands a big navy. The report
being compiled by the general board
will answer these questions;
What is the fighting fore of tb
nations of the world?
Where does the United States navy
stand?
What will It coBt to place the United
States navy in second place,?
Can this be done in three years?
What is needed to balance up the
present navy?
what should be the complement to a
dreadnaught in the number of destroy
ers, scout cruisers and submarines and
aircraft?
Can the government and private
yards build all the vessels necessary to
place the United States In second place
in three years? f
Is it desirable to . give the country
such a strong fleet?
The replies to -these questions will
be made public probably at the meet
ing of the house naval affairs commit
tee tomorrow. Admiral Dewey and hta
associates r ill furnish a great deal of
confidential information.

promptly at 10:30 this morning, when

SOCIALISM IS SCORED
AS A FUNDAMENTAL
'DENIAL OF CREATOR'

Peter W, Collins of Boston, speaking
under the auspices of the Knights of
Columbus, drew a Urge audience at
th Lincoln high school auditorium
last night to hear his lecture, -What
la Wrong With the World T" Wallace
McCamant presided and introduced the
speaker.
In reply to a question from Tom
Burns after his lecture, Mr. Collins
said that he had debated with all the
leading Socialists of th country, ex
cept Eugene V. Debs, "and 1 have never
Been able to corner 'Gene and get him
on the platform with me." declared the
Boston orator.
There la a auarantee of 1500 to
Debs for expenses to meet me sny
whera at any time," he continued, "and
I will give the gentleman who asked
about a debate $100 if he will make
the arrangement and secure the ap
pearance of Mr. Debs."
The speaker declared that Socialism
was fundamentally the denial of Ood,
and was a movement that did not come
from, the working class.
Speaker cores Socialism.
"Socialism has two languages," snld
Collins, "the language of the uni
versity and the language of the soap
box." Ha contended that soclallxm
stirred up strife snd dissatisfaction
and waa one of the thing the matter
with the world. He pointed out that the
remedy for existing social Injustices,
many of which he mentioned. He alon
the line of arbitration, conciliation and
organisation, and that' much has al
ready been accomplished in that direc
tion in better laws for the regulation
of labor and capital, better laws for
th securing of employment and betrer
understandings between labor and
capital.
Divorce he denounced aa a social
cancer, and child labor as "striking at
the foundation of civilization." Ow
of his declarations he made was that
there are more Jobs now than there
are men to fill tbem, but that men and
women flock to th large pities and do
not know of the Jobs demanding them
or how to reach them. i
Bemedies Are Suggested.
Constructive social service In har
mony with tke Ten Commandments,
the recognition of the fatherhood of
God and the brotherhood of man, the
adjusting of social Inequalities along
the lines of th encycle of Pop Leo
XIII on th condition of labor, were
the remedies for the existing condi
tiona of labor and capital.
He praised Oregon for its progres
siv lawg regarding child and women
labor, and Portland for Us harmonious
and progressive spirit of unity that
