their gratitude to the men who saved
them from German imperialism.
The great triumphal arch, v con
reived by Napoleon to commemorate

The city is joined in the suit by
M. A. II. Ashley,. Frank" S. Grant and
pthcrs, who were iucluded in the suit
as telephone users, - j ' --r.
The city and Its essoclales main
tain that because of government con
trol, the public service commission
did not have ju:lsdlction ovar rates
and that neither did the committee
act within its province when it con
ducted a hearing which was not re
quested by the telephone company.
Increased long distance rates
brought about through! an order by
the postmaster general, are cited by
the city in an effort to prove that
the government had the power to la
crease local toll rates i and that the
public service commission of Ore
gon did not hold sucti power.

WASHINGTON. July 14. PrnhlUli

nouse today, refuged to permit a vote
on a straight-out motion to repeal
the war-time act, defeated ove
whelmingly an amendment providing
for the Bale of two and three quar

against an attacks on the general

, Disturbance Start Farly.
The disturbance arose first during
an attempt by Representative Blan
ton. Democrat, Texas, to speak a sec-
ood time against an amendment that
would have given a jury the right to
define intoxicants, and was increased
duriag an address by Representative
Gall i van, Democrat. Massachusetts
who , declared members voting dry
should print in the congressional ree
ard exactly how much liquor they
had stored 4 their homes and of
fices.;., '
' The real battle of the day, how
ever, was over the amendment to de
fine a non-intoxicant as a beverage
containing 2 per cent alcohol, in
stead of one half of one per cent as
written in the bill. Representative
Dyer. Republican, Missouri, author
of. the amendment, -did hot ask for
this definition in the constitutional
prohibiten amendment, but simply in
the war-time law. In pleading for
its adoption. Mr. Dyer 'declared it
was what President Wilson had -ec
ommended to congress and would
permit during the remaining period
of war-time prohibition, the sale of
light wines and beer, and might de
lay issuance of proclamation by the
f president which would restore the
sale of "hard" liquors.
Speech Hows Free.
There was a round of speech-mak

OLCOTT PLEADS
FOR LOGANBERRY
Executive Urges Delegation
" to Work for Elimination
of Unjust Tax
Because the life of the loganberry
industry is threatened by a 10 per
cent government tax which has been
placed by the government on berry
juice and because of. the excessive
railroad rate on glass bottles. Gov
ernor Olcott lias enlisted his effort
in behalf of growers and loganberry
products, manufacturers " by urging
the Oregon delegation In congress to
use its Influence to obtain relief. In
a letter to the senators and the rep
resentatives the government calls at
tention to the international import
ance of the industry, and asserts
that the tax Imposed means little
to the federal government. The let
ter follows:
. "After the expenditure of many
n una reds or thousands lor dollars
progressive citizens or the state of
uregon have developed an industry
oi international ..importance out of
the use of products of the loganber
ry. Oregon is receiving not only
nunareds of thousands of dollars
annually for her citizens through the
development of these products, but
nas secured advantages of almost
inestimable value through the won
derful system of national and Inter
national pubicity which" has grown
out of the loganberry business. , .
congress has assessed a 10 per
cent tax against the cross selline
price of loganberry juice. Rail
rate? on glass bottles, as well as on
the finished, product have increased
materially during the past few years
and tae life of the industry is
threatened. . What promises to be
one of the mightiest industries ever
originated on the Pacific coast man
be throttled practically unless some
relier ! arforded.
"As governor of the state mar
ask yon to use your most earnest
efforts to assist in removing the tax
wmcn may- force this , industry
the wall? . The tax itself means but
little to the federal government, but
the industry, to Oregon, Is one of
such magnitude as to deserve the
most decided effort to save it from
destruction.'

the patrolmen pointed to the high
wages paid elsewhere and the high
cost of living. Chief Varney said
