Friday November 26, 1920.
Holiday hfppinesa marked the
passing of 1920'a Thanksgiving: day.
Portland wu a city given over , to
celebration." v
Whether ezpre'soed Jn word or In the
exuberance of .'action, . the spirit of
thanksgiving was manifeated on all aides
for the bounties of the year. Thousands
of people Journeyed to union church
ervlcei, whre nonitfc, rayers and testi
monies of Thanksgiving were heard.
The usual Thursday traffic was sus
pended. Kmpty streets in the morning
Indicated that thousands of famines
v enjoyed a weekday reunion, while surgr
Ing masses of humanity in the afternoon
. and evening signified the urge and call
of the pleasures and pastimes of theatre
a row. Playhouses were crowded all day,
as were motion picture places.
Ttestaurants began to respond to the
appetite of the city at noon, and there
was all too short a breathing spell in
the middle of the afternoon for the
.workers, who attended to the diners.
Special menus gave the holiday touch to
nearly every table in town.
In-the town's best cellar, Edgar, col-1
ored janitor at the jail, was given the
privilege of inhaling Thanksgiving cheer
when he was assigned to mop up some
home brew which had exploded. On
the fifth floor of the municipal hotel the
prisoners were regaled with music. The
Apostolic Faith orchestra of 2J pieces!
' sang and played during the evening. A
novel note was -struck by-a derelict sev
.. eral sheets In the wind who chimed in
. at the end of eax-h song from hie cell at
the end of the corridor. Chief Jenkins
:, entertained the baby girl In his charge
- during the day, making her at home in
,hls office. -
One ofjjthe happiest pereons In Port
land today Is Eric V. Hauser. owner of
the Multnomah hotel, who feasted COO
, newsies Thursday. No line was dran
by Hauser, boys, men, women, blind,
lame, black, brown and white all enjoy-;
f Ing the same privileges. The newsies
eat at the tables In groups of eight in
'- true democratic fashion, paying little at
4 tentlon to who was' on the other ald&V
Steward C. B. Nagle and Chef T. H.
Sherman, said the boys consumed 1200
pounds -of turkey and 300 mince pies in
dditlon to other ' trimmings. Wheii
' Hauser entered - the' room after the
ne waies. were seated cheers greeted him
and a speech .was called' for, but the
. one-time Minneapolis newgboy remem
. bered how well lie liked speeches when
: a lad, so he declined and told the boys
- to enjoy their feast Manager A. Bj
- Campbell and Asnlstant Manager A. J.
- Arroll assisted in welcoming the newsies.
' Sixty '! men, many of them - homeless;
' were entertained at a Thanksgiving dini
. ner at the Men's Resort, Fsurtir and
Burnslde streets. The Rev. Levi John
. son presided and read the president's
proclamation. ' Following the dinner a
musical program was given. '
One of the features of the day was
. the feeding of dumb brutes in the rnu
. nloipal . pound at the- suggesttion of a
wealthy Portland woman. Several per
4 sons contributed to the fund- '
Many individuals, were seen carrying
Heavily laden baskets on streetcars as
though i they knew, of a poor family
needing, a little Thanksgiving cheer.
Bullet Is Taken '
From Shoulder of
Policeman's Slayer
A successful operation waa performed
on the wounded shoulder of Husted A.
Walters, tndlcted murderer of Patrol
man Jerome Palmer, in the emergency
hospital Thursday by Dr. Martin w.
Rose. The bullet which Patrolman
Thorpe fired at the deserter-highwayman
was rempved from the man'a irbonl
der and is being held by the police as
evidence. --.''!-'
Walters is recovering from his wounds
and Is now able to walk about the hos
pital."; Authorities say he will be removed-
to the county jail As soon as pos
sible. All doubt as :o .who fired the
shot that lodged in Walter's shoulder
was settled, when the bullet waa recov
ered. It was from a .38 calibre revolver,
the type of gun carried by Thorpe, and
not from the kind of revolver carried
by Palmer. I

Ishii j of Japan will ' present
the question of racial equality in
formally to) the League of Nations
assembly ak this session, it was
learned authoritatively today. It
was said Ishii will bring the matter
bto the attention of the assembly in
such a way; as to avoid comment or
debate. . " ,
Members' of the Japanese delegation
said today they were instructed by the
government , not to , submit a racial
equality measure or any other that
would be apt to create friction. . The
matter will be put before the assembly,
probably as a Reminder that Japan has
not" forgotten her original demand.
The - Japanese delegation, largest." of
those attending ,the sessions, has been
the most, silent' - Not a member has par
ticipated in the debate. Attending every
"session the delegates, immaculately clad.
take 'their seats at; the opening of the
meeting and jit- quietly until adjourn
ment. .- .
No trace of interest or surprise or any
other emotion crosses their faces.
, While the delegates apparently at
tend the sessions only as spectators,
numerous secretaries are frantically fol
lowing every word uttered, compiling
voluminous reports of every happening.
No subject Js too- trivial for the com
pilation of an exhaustive. record.
The league assembly expected to con
clude its week's work today with the
hearing of reports by commissions. The
program ' ' then called for adjournment
until Tuesday,
Disarmament was the main topic in
the assembly today.: A commission to
consider that question began Its sessions
yesterday, practically with Instructions
that recommendations for the present
must be held within reasonable limits.
Delegates, declared the league must
give-proof iof its sincerity by refrain
ing from extreme demands - until all
large ; nations are members - of the
league. - V .-.;-
It was expected ' the commission will
recommend prohibition Of private man
ufacture of war materials, regulation
of traffic in arms and the exchange of
military information. '
The assembly was expected to take up
today the demand of the Australian del
egation that a reply e made to Ger
many's mandate note.
The commission continued hard at work
on - the plan for an international tri
bunal. ' It was believed there were
chances of its adoption at this Bession
of the assembly, after slight amend
ments have been adopted.
Indications today were that three
things - would be accomplished at this
session of the assembly. These will be

pendent oil men In the world and a
leader in the Republican, party reads
like a fable.
Hamon's fortune'at his death "was es
timated conservatively at $30,000,000.
The foundation of his fortune lay in
the scheme which he devised and car
ried through the development of . town-
sites and a railroad Jn Oklahoma. He
had no money with, which to carry out
the project, but decided a wealthy cir
cus man would probably be more apt to
finance the project than any other per
son. He made the acquaintance of one
of the Ringling brothers. It was Said
he deliberately turned ' over a cocktail
glass in a New York , cafe' at a table
where Ringling was seated in order to
meet he circus owner.,
- Hamon made the most of the Incident
and soon got Rlngling's backing. TI
town of Jakehamon and another named
Rmgling were started., The railroad
project got under way and then oil was
discovered on the property.. From that
time Hamon was a made man.
After making, his fortune, Hamon
started to -take an interest In politics.
He waa such an 'outsider" only a few
years ago that when he went to the Re
publican national convention In 1914
he did not have a ticket and it waa only
through the kindness of a friend that he
waa able to obtain admittance. But Ha
mon worked his political game to the
limit and after a bitter fight was named
the state's national committeeman. He
waa one of the original; boosters of
Warrei Q. Harding for fh presidential
nomination and worked for the Ohtogn's
success long before the Chicago conven
tion. During the 'conventlbn deadlock
Hamon waa prominently,, mentioned for
me nomination. . , -Hamon's.
little daughter attracted con'
siderable attention during the convention
at Chicago by entertainments at. Re
publican headquarters. She is an ac
complished violinist. She was . at her
xatners bedside when he died.
A son resides in Chicago- and had not
arrived when the end came. Dr. Walter
Hardy, head of the sanitarium Vhere
Hamon died, said that the dilation of
tne heart was first noticed at- 8 p. m.
Thursday." A few, hours previous Ha
mon was believed to have passed the
danger mark, Dr. Hardy said. However,
when, his heart started to fail, he suf
fered a relapse and little hope was held
out for his recovery.' ;
With Hamon' death.' authorities re
doubled their4 efforts to locate Mrs.
Clara Smith Hamon, who disappeared
immediately after the shooting. The
woman was a clerk in a store at Lawton,
Okla., when Hamon first met her. She
was only 17 that was about eight years
ago according to Hamon's friends. .
At that time Hamon's success had- xt
4ff- VS.
started and he had very little property.
Many stories have .been , circulated .in
Ardmore since Hamon- was shot regard
ing the friendship between the woman
and the oil magnate! Officials have re
fused to reveal evidence which they may
have against the woman. Hamon's
friends claimed" ,", "frame-up" and de
clared the charges were the result of
political animosity.; .
Reports were circulated that witnesses
heard Hamon and a womaan quarreling ;
that when Hamon and the woman were
in the dining room previous to the shoot
ing they talked excitedly and appeared
angry. Reports in Ardmore were ' that
jealousy was the motive for the alleged
shooting. -.

L. A. McNary, representing the
Northwestern Electric company and
a Joint pole committee, including the
Portland Railway, Light & Power
company and Pacific Telephone &
Telegraph company, has asked Com
missioner Barbur to cooperate with
him in preparing an ordinance reg
ulating the planting and growth of
trees within the city limits.
' He , would eliminate the interference
of trees on city residence property with
the stringing and repairing of electric
wires throughout the city. McNary also
solicits the aid of the commissioner In
enlisting the offices of the county com
mlssioners In Including all of Multno
mah county In-the ordinance. '
The proposed ordinance would com
pel all city and county property owners
to get permits from a committee, which
meets with the approval of the electric
companies, before planting trees or
shrubbery and wouW have them keei
such trees and shrubbery ' trimmed ai
suggested by those companies to better
enable linemen to work on the poles.
Commissioner Barbur said that while
he would gladly confer with the attor
ney and consider his proposal, he was of
the opinion that legislation toward put
ting all electric wires underground would
be more to the point at this time. "There
are some trees (of the brittle varieties)
now grown so tall that high winds make
them a menace to the public and I think
the height' of those trees should be de
creased," he 8ald,"but the proposal to
limit the height of trees to 25 -feet and
to legislate toward meeting, the sugges
tions f the . electrical concerns in the
city and throughout the. county, I am
not so sure about."
Commissioner Pier, in charge of parks,
and Commissioner Barbur. in charge of
streets,- will meet with the representa
tives of- the electric companies next
Tuesday to consider their suggestion.
