quest That Appropriate
Ceremonies Be Held
WASHINGTON, April 22. (Lead

today by Secretary IlcAdoo to declare
next Friday a -state legal holiday, as
President Wilson has proclaimed It
a national holiday, to aid tne liberty
day celebrations by whU b It Is booed
to boost sales of liberty bonds well
along toward he $ J,Ouo,00,000
Just as the nation's offerings of
liberty dollars passed $l,500,voo,ooo
today, the St. Loul and Minneapolis
iruvrat reserve aisinct managers
sent word that they Lad exceeded
their subscriptions of $130,000,000
and $105,000,000, respectively. .
The Minneapolis district record Is
considered particularly remarkable.
considering that It started its can
vass Just a week ago today. By of
ficial reports tonight the St. Louis
district had subscribed only 93 pr
cent of its quota and Minneapolis. 59
"If April 28 cannot be made a
legal holiday," Mr. McAdoo ak4 the
governors, "will you not urge that
stores and all public places be closed
on the afternoon of that day, and
that the people in the cities, towns
and country districts Join In appro
priate ceremonies." ,
"I . have requested the organiza
tions cooperating In the liberty loan
campaign to do everything In their
power to encourage patriotic demon
strations on that day and to promote
the success of the liberty loan. May
I not also suggest that In your rec
lamation you request the mayors and
other local-governing authorities to
make it a special point to cooperate
in their eeveral localities to cele
brate liberty day?"
To promote, liberty day Secretary
Daniels today abandoned plans for
making Wednesday a special navy lib
erty loan day. He sent a radio mes
sage to all ships, shore stations and
naval camps all over the world, sug
gesting rallies and the. gathering of
"Let us all pull together and by
our subscriptions on that day Indi
cate to the world that we are solidly
behind our commander in chief and
that in neither life nor fortune does
the navy place any limit upon its
support of the nation's cause."
Official reports tonight -' to the
treasury, covering business up to this
morning, gave the total of loan sub
scription as 11.40.555.500, but of
ficials said it was certain that reports
to be filed later tonight, reporting to
day's work, would send the amount
far beyond $1,500,000,000. .

"Numerous request for exten

the war. During the entire year Just
passed we have discouraged Insofar
as consistent with our public duty,
the filing of complaint against car
rier that might injuriously affect
their revenues or cause considerable
expenditure of funds. Realizing tbe
seriousness of the situation, tbe peo
ple of Oregon have almost without
exception acceded to our, request and
consented to await the final determ
ination of the war before demanding
such improvements and betterments.
Oregon is extremely pattiotlc V this,
as well as many other matter, and we
have confidence to believe that 'our
citixen will forgo many things which
under ordinary conditions they would
feel justily entitled to and wfll pa

day) The senate settled down to
day to a rinlsb fight on the bill pro
posing blanket authority for the
president to reorganise government
agencies m roeullng the war. "
' No compromise,! was the word
sent by President Wilson In a letter
to Henator Overman-of Norrh Caro
lina, sponsor of th measure. De
bate was resumed by supporters of
the administration, while opponent
demanding specific exemption of tbe
interstate commerce commission and
certain other permanent bureaus
from changes prepared for further
errorts to foree amendments.
in hhi letter to Senator Overman
the .president said:
"I thank you with all my heart for
standing by tbe bill which beam your
name wlthmit nv rnm nrnmlu rf
Senator Overman afterward declared
he would oppose any amendment of
tbe pending measure and felt confi
dent of its passage with , votes to
spare. He conceded, however, that
tbe vote on exempting tbe Interstate
commerce commission and possibly
others bureaus from Its scope would
be very close, a canvass of the sen
ate is in progress.
Io today's debate Senators Fletch
er of Florida, chairman of the com
merce committee, and Shields of Ten
nessee, a member of the judiciary
committee, which reported the bill.
urged passage of the 'measure as a
means of centralising authority and
speeding up war operations. . They
declared that the president is re
sponsible for the conduct'gf tbe. war
and should, be given necessary au

Senator Sherman of Illinois. Re
publican, criticising the bill, insisted
that what is needed' more than ad
ditional power is "the proper exer
cise of power already in existence"
and selection' of competent men to
exercise such authority.
Senator Fletcher admitted - that
there had been mistakes and delay
in war preparations but asserted that
they were comparatively negligible
and the whole record praiseworthy.
Both he and Senator Shields dismiss
ed as unworthy of discussion the con
tention that the president might
abuse the broad powers given him
under the bill. '

to have exceeded his authority to
