OF EPWORTH LEAGUE
ENDED ON SUNDAY
Gain in Membership Shown-
by Reports From the Chap
Eight Chapters Beport That They Are
Helping- Support Borne One la the
Porelgn Plaid at Present.
The twenty-sixth annual conven
tion of the Portland district Epworth
League closed its sessions in the Sun .
nyslde Methodist church on Sunday
evening. The officers elected for the
coming year are: C. S. Whitcomb of
Sunnyside church, president; F. J.
Schnell of Mt. Tabor, first vice presi
dent; Ralph Speelmon of Epworth,
second vice president; Ernest Stamt
bery of Taylor Street, third vice presi
dent: Miss Pansy Full of Sellwood,
fourth vice president; C. D. Chilson of
Patton, corresponding secretary; W.
Vinson of St. Johns, recording sec
retary; O. J. Gill of Woodlawn, treas
urer, and Miss Minnie Marcy of Sell
wood, Junior league superintendent.
Reports of the different chapters
showed a gain in membership and an
expenditure of over 1600 during -the
past year. Eight chapters reported;
that they were helping support some
one In the foreign field. .
Insurgent Xs Becogalsed.
One interesting Incident of the con
vention is practical recognition by the
young people of the Taylor street "In
surgents" by electing to their cabinet
Ernest Stansbery. who Is the son of
S. A. Stansbery, deceased, who brought
action against the First Methodist
church with regard to closing the
doors of the Third street building.
A yea.- ago at the convention Mr.
Stansbery was suggested to the nomi
nating committee, but owing to the
pressure of the district superintendent.
Rev. J. W. McDougall, his name was
not considered by the committee. In
stead a member of First church was
elected, which made it necessary for
the nominating committee to make
two changes in their report.
This year a different committee,
appointed by a different president,
again nominated Mr. Stansbery and
reported his name to the convention
at the morning session -of Saturday.
The election was held in the after
noon and at that time opportunity wag
given for delegates -to nominate any
one whom they desired. Several
were nominated to other offices and
elected over those recommended by the
committee, but no one opposed Mr.
Ho Protest Made..
Mr. S"tansbery was president of the
district from 1912 to 1914, so the
delegates voted knowingly. Six
Methodist pastors were present at the
convention, but did not voice protest.
The action of the league at this
particular time seems to Justify the
rumor in general circulation that the
convention's purpose was to exert a
moral influence on the general con
ference now in session at Saratoga
Springs, and which is expected to
rule on the trouble this week.
CONFERENCE BODY IS
HROUGH WITH LABOR
MAKES RNAL REPOR
Public Hearings to Be Held on
Recommendations It Is Announced,
CHAIRMAN MUCH PLEASED
Jane 15 and 16 Are Dates Bet
Rearing As Provided for
Formal adoption of Us seven reports
brought to a close the labors of the
conference committee of the Industrial
Welfare -commission yesterday after
nooh. After deliberations -and hearings ex
tending over two months the commit
tee turned over its recommendations to
the commission for rulings as affect
ing hours of labor, wages, apprentice
ship and sanitary conditions for women
Although with but one personnel the
committee In effect sat as a separate
conference for each Industry consid
ered. Reports were submitted to the
Industrial Welfare commission by con
ferences on mercantile, telegraph and
telephone, laundry, manufacturing,
personal service, publlo housekeeping
and office occupations.
The recommendations of these con
ferences were published substantially
as adopted in The Journal of Sunday,
Under the law the Industrial Wel
fare commission, if it adopts the con
ference recommendations, must hold
public hearings before putting them In
effect. The commission has set June
15 and 16 for the hearings.
The reports of the conferences were
adopted unanimously by the commit
tee save that Mrs. L. Gee entered ob
jections, which were recorded in the
minutes, to provisions for a nine-hour
day and to a 45-minute rest period
after six hours of continuous labor.
Mrs. Gee stood for an eight-hour day
and for a rest period of one hour.
Personnel of Committee.
On the committee were.K. B. Mac
Naughton, chairman; W.'-L. Brewster
and Mrs. C. J. Frankel. representing
the public; A. C. Callan, Thomas Rob
erts Sr.. and Everett Ames, represent
ing the employers; and Mrs. L. Gee,
Mrs. Rose Herst and Miss Nell
Younger, representing the employes.
Rev. E. V. O'Hara. chairman .of the
Industrial Welfare commission, speak
ing of the work of the conference on
behalf of the commission, said:
"The results obtained by the confer
ence indicate the value of this manner
of dealing with industrial problems,
that all sides can get together and get
unanimity of results. This conference
is really a board of conciliation and Its
work demonstrates that Its method is
the only progressive way to - settle
these problems rather than strikes and
Decisions Hearly Unanimous.
"The conference's decisions show
conclusively to the state the absurdity
of the charge that the commission had
packed the conference, as the recom
mendations are practically unanimous.
"The Industrial Welfare commission
is pleased with the results and these
findings are the results that are to be
expected when people ret together to
discuss their problems instead of de
nouncing each other."
