Of the condemniit ion by court martial
In Dublin, followed by the Immediate
execution, of these revolutionary lead
ers, Cornelius Culborl. .!. J Mueston.
Xsdmond Kent and Michael Mallon.
The cry of "Murder, murder," was
launched at Premier Asquitli in Ihe
house of commons this afternoon. The
speaker was Laurence ilnnell, an
Irish member of parliament of the
John Redmond Make Protest.
Kven John Redmond, leader of the
Nationalists, staunchly as he has sup
ported the government, uttered in the
house today an earnest protest against
the policy of exterminating the mis
guided revolutionists whose t f fort to
establish an Irish re.iubllc were frus
trated by the military.
In the form of a question to the
premier, Mr. Redmond conveyed a
strong suggestion that the continued
crop of military executions in Dublin
was creating a growing bitterness
among classes of the Irish people who
had not been in sympathy with the
' Cites General Botha Precedent.
He desired to know whether the
government would not follow Its own
precedent In the ea.e of General
Botha in South Africa and cause Gen
eral Maxwell to aisconiin ue, me exe-
I v Pitamini Aannftb made cnutlniiv rp.
Tly In which he Intimated that Gen
eral Maxwell, In whose judgment he
had great confidence, had been in
direct communication Wi t the cabi
net at every stage of the trials and
that his Instructions, which agreed
with his own inclination, were not
'to sanction the Infliction of the death
penalty except In the case of respon
sible persons proved to have been
actual ringleaders In the revolt.
Lenient With Sank and rile.
In regard to the rank .and file, the
premier assured Mr. Redmoud that his
pleas for clemency had not fallen on
unwilling ears. He added that the cab
inet was anxiously considering what
disposition should be made of the less
guilty of the Sinn Keiners who bore
arms in the reolt and that the execu
tions should come to an end as soon
as the bare demands of justice would
The accusing shouts of Laurence
Ginnell were drawn forth by another
reply of the premier's to a question ad
dressed to him by Mr. Ginnell himself.
The question was equivalent to a de
mand that no more Irishmen should
be put to death by courtmartlal until
the house of commons had been given
an opportunity to dlscu.is the question.
Aaqulth Refaaea to Give Promise.
Mr. Asquith replied that he could
not give any such promise and it was
then that Ginnell threw the house into
tumult by stretching bis arm dra

benches and shouting, "murder, mur

IN BUSINESS LINES

are men unemployed. But the tendency
is so much toward better time that
many businss men are making plans
for the enlargement of their scope.
Economic and financial reviews have
told the story. They bay that mining
has revived; that lumber has revived.
They say that more men are employed
in the industries at advanced wages.
They say that the whole country has
risen from the slough.
Movement Ooes Forward.
It cannot be denied that the in
fluence of the war is responsible for
a. least the -beginnings of this brighter
period. Abundant crops in the agri
cultural section, with advanced prices,
have carried the movement alon?.
Areas of depression are still found '.n
the "cotton belt," where there was
nothing to buoy up business when
the great and! only staple encountered
disaster. But even there the better
influence is felt.
Surveys of the nation's business
show that isn every section of the
country the horizon has cleared, some
faster than others.
E. L. Thompson, president of the
Portland Woolen Mills, said today
that his business is increasing In vol
ume. Thousn eisht mills in Califor
nia have shut down, the Portland
mills are running full time and turn
ir.E out all the goods that can be
turned out under the restrictions of
the hours-of-labor regulations. With
these made less drastic, he said, even
greater quantities could be produced.
Gain Is Harked.
L. P. Hirsch of the Hirsch-Welss
company, manufacturers of tents,
said the business in their line had
shown approximately CO per cent In
crease over this time last year. This
has involved no appreciable extension
of territory served, indicating, he said,
improved conditions within the zone
Joe Supple, boat builder, has been
turning out craft of all kinds as fast

the construction of first class steel

with work already under way. The

XiOffg-inr Camps Aetive.
Logging caimps all over the Colum
bia river district are now in operation,
many companies finding it hard to
find men enough for their needs. The
lumber mills find their operations now
restricted only by the means they have
for transportation. Relief from car
shortage conditions have made heavy
business by rail a possibility, but the
exportation is restricted by lack of
ocean going tonnage.
Every inch ol space available on
such ships that call here for c:rgoea
is snapped up by lumbermen with
orders for foreign parts.
The report of Portland businessmen
carries out the indications in the Bab
son map, just received by local busi
ness statisticians. The map last year
showed Oregon colored blue, indicat
ing depressed times. This year, east

ing excellent business, while the re

Alibi Is Offered in

Oroville, Cal May 9. (P. N. S.)
Further evidence to build up an alibi
for the Rev. Madison Slaughter, ac
cused by Gertrude Lamson, was of
fered today by the defense with Mrs.
Slaughter as a witness.
Her testimony related largely to the
almond orchard incident. She testified
that she gave the girl an old dress for
work in the orchard, a dress that was
tight fitting about the neck and but
toned up the back. Gertrude ijrnson
described the dress she wore at this
time as entirely different.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark Camper and the
pastor's two daughters also testified
for the defense to prove an alibi for
the accused minister. The buiden of
the evidence was all the same, that
Gertrude Lamson was not 1n the

that she had been attacked by the pas

Miss Ella May Harris, who disap-

Friday afternoon, and who has been
an object of constant search since that
time, is believed to have committed

Detective Charles Hill and Miss
Harris' mother and sister hurried to
Vancouver, only to find that she had
left there at 2 o'clock in the afternoon
with the expressed intention of coming
to Portland to search for work again.
The searchers returned to Portland.
Coincident with their return came a
telephone call at detective headquar
ters from a woman on Johnson street,
who refused to give her name. She
said the Harris girl had called at her
home, had identified herself. and
asked for work.
"I showed the girl her picture in the.

to the police that the girl had been

Still another possibility is that she

Woman Was Despondent.
Miss Harris is 33 years old and a
normal school graduate. She has been
a teacher, but of late has been unable
to get work, and before her recent 'dis

parents and sister live at Liberty, near

The information from Vancouver
yesterday came from Adolph North

neff told Mrs. Harris there that he
had seen Miss Harris walking to and

river's edge at Vancouver Friday
night and asked her what was the
matter. She told him that she con

said that he had taken her to the home
