President McQuat'ters of the Mexican

last conference. He is head of a com
pany owning large mining interests In
Parral which were looted recently. Mc
Quatters invited Obregon and Scott to
luncheon at the Del Norte hotel, os
tensibly to discuss' the tendency of
Mexicans to blame the de facto gov
ernment for lack of employment. Obre
gon came openly, Scot quietly.
Obregon impressed Americans here
as being the strongest Mexican ever
seen on the border.
Quick Finish Expected.
Washington,. May 3. (U. P.) An
early termination of the campaign in
Mexico Is what the Scott-Obregon
agreement means. In the view of au
thorities here today. Hampered here
tofore by the necessity of maintaining
strong communication lines in almost
parallel rows, General Pershing has
not had the free rem desired. The use
of the Mexican Northwestern Railroad,
granted by War Minister Obregon
means that Is will be utilized by troops
In trailing Villistas. The only thing
remaining is Carranza's O. K. This,
It is believed, will be given.
The agreement for an established
base at Colonia Dnblan means that
the present base will be moved north
ward eight miles. In effect, this
agreement is what General Scott's
original orders sought.
Americans will patrol northern
Mexico while Carranzistas chase tho
Villistas southward. A short, quick
clean-up Is in prospect. When Fun
eton feels that the scourge of border
raids is eliminated, the American
troops can be withdrawn.
The way may be clear for the state
department to '"treat" with Mexican
envoys on the subject of the with
drawal of troops, unless Carranza un
expectedly thwarts what Scott and
Obregon have accomplished.

A committee of route-finders that
made the rough and thrilling climb to
a slightly greater elevation near the

turn, the driving of a tunnel up

overhanging descent that now makes
the climb impossible The tunnel, on
a grade of 50 or 60 per cent, with steps

out a duplicate, yet probably less costly
than a trail suspended outside.
Added to the spectacular character of
the climb will be a view of river, gorge,
highway and mountains that cannot be
equaled. On the shoulder of the dome,
where it connects with the main cliff,
probably 600 feet below its Isolated
summit, the party held a meeting yes

definite plans for the trail.

Lumbermen of Portland will meet

at 6:30 at dinner for the organization

Chamber of Commerce, so that the
various Interested concerns may pre

in -which the chamber can serve In ad
vancing the lumber interests ot the

members of the delegation, balked at
some of the program measures, and
the Oregonian, being the father of
tho tteket J nonlf" not lav fin 1 n -
fatherly hand on its child.
This time things were planned dif
ferently. The Secret Circle decided
that if the Oregonian were masked to
support a ticket prepared by leading
business men of the city, and, under
the pressure, agreed to do so, it would
still be in a position to castigate
the unfaithful who might stray from
the ranks when the battle began in
January next.
Agreement Za Secret.
So the Secret Circle entered into
an arrangement with Thomas C. Mc
Cusker, secretary of the Employers'
association, under the terms of whicn
McCusker was to prepare petitions con
taining the names of the 12 chosen
apostles, who, by the way, were to be
checked and approved by the Secret
Circle before the petitions were put
into circulation. Having been pre
pared and approved, the petitions were
to be circulated among innocent by
standers in the business district of
the city until at least 100 names had
been secured, when they were to be
presented to the Oregonian as the
spontaneous and physiological out
burst of business men interested in
good government, whereupon the Ore
gonian, compelled by the voice of the
public good, would heed the call and
support the ticket.
The 12 men were chosen, the peti
tions were prepared and all went mer
rily until the circulation began. Friends
of candidates not on the ticket refused
to sign unless their friends were
put on.
Two or three of the innocent circu
lators, seeing no harm in this, added
names to the chosen 12, and the Secret
Circle blew up and had those petitions
called in.
Other business men refused to sign
the petitions, saying they could not af
ford to antagonize the candidates not
on the list, for business reasons. Oth
ers who were on the inside said they
did rot believe in bosslsm and invisible
government, and balked, and the whole
game drew Into such a tangle that the
petitions were called back and are now
resting on the shelf.
Because of the protests, the effort
to frame an official legislative ticket
has been abandoned for the time, at
least and it is now being planned to
"sift 'em' out" by appropriate com
mendatory publicity, by the cold and
glassy marble shoulder of no-mentlon
and by the direct wallop, as the occa
sion may Justify.

Exposition Commissioners
Asked OnlV SamDleS Of i
Work Taught in Schools,
The charge against J. L. Kerchen,
manual training supervisor of the
Portland schools, that he caused teach
ers' work, rather than that of pupils,
to be exhibited at San Francisco, was
shattered at last night's session of
his trial before the school board.
This came when E. J. Burroughs of
the Ockley Green school, one of the
witnesses against him, stated that
Kerchen had read to the teachers a
letter from the commissioner In
charge of the exhibit at the exposition
that what was wanted was samples of
the manual training work taught in
the Portland schools and that it was
not necessary that It be the work of
E. H. Whitney, principal of the Ock
ley Green school, and Mr. Burroughs
both testified that Kerchen was radi
cal in his views on political, religious
and social questions, but that he did
not air them objectionably.
V. H. Paquett, who was connected
with the schools prior to 1913 but not
since, and T. J. Piper, manual train
ing instructor at the Woodlawn
schools gave somewhat similar testi
mony. Isaac Swett, attorney for Kerchen,
stated today that the statement that
Chairman Munly's testimony was pro
tested in matter of private conversa
tions was unjust to bim. Since Chair
man Munly endeavored to rule it out.
Mr. Swett states 'that Mr. Munly ac
tually ruled such testimony out at
first, but other members of the board
thought it best that the testimony be
Work on Trail to
Begin This Month
First Three Miles of Route From
Eagle Creek to Wahtum Lake to
Be Open July 1.
Work on the 12-mile trail from
Eagle creek bridge on the Columbia
river highway to Wahtum lake will
commence the middle of this month,
according to T. H. Sherrard, super
visor of the Oregon National forest.
Kight men will be put to work at
first. More will be added as the
work opens up.
The first three miles of the trail
will probably be open by July 1. It
is hoped to have the trail opened to
the lake this summer.
Tt is a rugged country up Kagle J
creek through which the trail will
have to be broken. In the first three
miles there are six falls ranging in
height from 20 to 100 feet. At one
spot the trail will have to be built on
the face of a sheer rock cliff 76
feet high.
