mence Three Days Hence; Cor
dial Reception Is Expected.
Does the Portland business com
f munlty appreciate what the Chamber
'. of Commerce has been doing the past
two years to aid shipbuilding? To pro
mote payrolls? To increase commerce?
To augment state development? To
- spread wide the fame of the Oregon
'. country through medium of publicity?
& Does Portland realize at last that con-
- centrated effort along 'definite lines by
unified, ; harmonious, people alone can
C solve Portland's promises And meet op
portunities half way? . .
" O. W. Miehlke, chairman of the Cham
' ber of Commerce membership commit
" M thl mnrnlne that March 25. 28
and 27 will furnish rapid fire answers to
i the rapid fire questions.
"We intend to ask. of Portland 1Q00
- new members for the Chamber of Com-
rnerce In three days." said Mr. Miehlke.
S- "W will get them.
"Our plans are all made. The mem
; bers of the chamber are with us. - You
f bet I will,' Is the often repeated re-
sponse to our membership team appoint

"Business men not .members of the
t- Chamber of Commerce are cordial. They
eee that we wouldn't have gone so far
In shipbuilding and in many - other ac
tivities had It not been for the work of
' the chamber. They, realise that if we
have a great and powerful organization
.representing unfactionalized business
, interests the problems of reconstruction
y can be capitalised to our benefit,
j " 'How the Money Is Used by Our
Chamber of Commerce' is our campaign
booklet and it is. a dandy for It gets
i down to brass tacks, tells the stcrry In
.;. a few words of the chamber's service
' and disarms critics by use of facts and
figures. .
i. ' "Through the aid of our business
friends we will get the benefit of the
, power of newspaper advertising. They
.-will insert Chamber of Commerce ad
vertisements in. 'their .regular spaces.
"The city will be thoroughly can-

Every business man and professloal

V As I approached the telegraph office
, 1 heard tie strain of the first spring
t. hurdy gurdy. A blind Tnan was playing
f and children were dancing around him.
, Without any warning a volley of shots
, suddenly rang out. Strikers tumbling
out of windows, doorways and alleys
I filled the street. The organ grinder fell
-. with a bullet in his head. A woman
streamed and toppled to the pavement
The revolutionists stormed the telegraph
station, overpowering and killing 10
.government soldiers on guard.
Running down the street, I tried to

.: tie. I saw the government troops' for
j the moment were powerless against the
K window warfare of the Spartacans and
- strikers. The cannon boomed uselessly
i, in space and machine guns rattled
-against the houses. In the meantime
volley upon volley from the Spartacans
were directed against the government
s-soldiers standing in the open. The
streets which a moment ago were gay
- with, the first touch of spring were now
f-the scenes of a violent battle. Women
, screamed from the windows of their be
s leagured homes and children huddled in
the doorways shrieked for help. '
I Mixed up with, the battle today is a
j curious political situation.. The prea-

De Valera quoted from President Wil

has the right of self determination.
No revolutionary action will be un
dertaken in Ireland until the peace con
ference shows conclusively thaw self
determination will not be granted, be
said. -
-"We hope to avoid violence," ie de
clared. "It means bloodshed, deaUis,
courtsmartial and perhaps executions.
But if we have to fight again to gain
our rights, if that is forced on us, we
shall not hesitate. Ireland must have
independence. -
"It's a big Job we've undertaken,
gaining complete-independence for Ire
land. In the message I'm to write for
you. 111 try th give the American peo
ple the reasons why we feel we mu
have 'It. . .
"We're going to win. I think every
man in Ireland will be willing to backi
us in our demands when we make them.
Meanwhile we iave our government
completely organised. We can . take
over the administration of our country
at a moment's notice. That's what the:

Sinn Fein leaders said today that by
the time this Is in print In America,
De Valera will be on a ship bound for
the. United States. They plan to smug
gle him out of Ireland Meanwhile he
fllte about from h(din? place to hiding
piace to elude (he British agents and
does the work of the Sinn Fein govern
ment. ..
Elaborate precautions were taken be
fore I was permitted to see this former
professor of mathematics, who was con
demned to death for leading the fight
ing duririg the Easter rebellion.
"I was told to be wal&Rg at 8 p. m. at
the side entrance of i my hotel. This
entrance is In a dark, narrow street. Pre
cisely at the hour fixed a closed auto
mobile halted '"at the curb. Leaving the
motor running the chauffeur approached
and whispered my name. I got in hur
riedly. The Inside of the machine was
luxuriously upholstered, In a corner
of the seat was a young Irishman who
was to be the guide. He Is one of 73
Slrm Feiners (including I5e Valera)
who were elected members of the Brit
ish house of commons at the December
elections. On his knees he held a thick,
heavy cane, almost a. club. He apolo
gised, then searched me for weapons.
- Maay Freeaatloss Ar Taken
"We've got a two-hour drive ahead of
us." he said as the automobile moved
away from the hotel. In a few min
utes we were : out of Dublin, turning
and : twisting over country roads until
all sense of direction was lost. We ar
rived eventually: in the outskirts of a
sleeping Village. There we walked up
and down while the Irishman frequently
peered at his watch, r -v ,
Presently another automobile It was
without lights drew up. My : guide
Jerked my cap down over my nose, so
I could see nothing, then pushed me into
this car. For half an hour we drove at
a rate that seemed very fast. We rot
out and , I sensed a garage. Then I was
led" aerdssawhat seemed to be a court
yard. My guide kept urging speed. A
door slammed and I felt the warm air of
a house. Up ' a heavily carpeted stair
and through a door we went. Then I
heard, "Now you can take the-bandage
from your eyes." . w.
KsTolatloa Is Dlsestted
v I was surprised to find myself In a
big room, richly furnished In mahogany,
with thick velvet carpets and velvet cur
tains tightly drawn over the tall win
dows. A softly shaded lamp stood on a
grand piano In one corner. 4
Before thV great fireplace.- warming
his ftands. was a tall man in a baggy
black suit, - with a black sUk handker
chief . ' around - his throat . instead of a
collar. He wore rubber soled - slippers.
This was De Valera. s
He smiled broadly, shook hands
swiftly, and turned to whisper' some di
rections to the. gutde. Then he talked.
A maid in trim uniform appeared with
a tray and silver tea service. Between
sips De Valera dlscused the chances of
a -revolution against; 200,000 ' soldiers,
who, he said,, are "occupying" Ireland. '
- A half hour later. X was again speed
ing toward Dublin, the cap over my
nose. De. Valera. I was told, would soon
be hurrying in another direction.
Edward ' De Valera, fugitive Sinn Fein
president, would be admitted to the
United States only if he presents sat
isfactory passports. This is necessary
under the war restrictions, they stated.
England undoubtedly would refuse to
issue the passport and In case De
Valera Bhould be smuggled into the
United States it would be the duty of
the American government , under in
ternational law to' apprehend him and
turn him over to British authorities
Just as is done with stowaways, of
ficials stated. -
Sinn Fein leaders In Ireland told
Ralph F. Couch,' .United Press staff cor
respondent, who interviewed De Valera
In hiding there, that De Valera Intended
to flee to the United States and that
he might be here as soon as his In
terview appeared in print. It was the
purpose of the Sinn Feiners, they said,
to. smuggle De Valera out of Ireland
and into this country.
