A Soldier, Symbol of French
Victory in the War is
Laid to Rest Beneath Arc
de Triomphe
Apothesis of Glory Accom
panies Expression of Na
tion's Gratitude
PARIS. Nov. 11. An unknjown
soldier, the symbol of France's
victory in the war was laid in his
final resting place beneath the
Are de Triomphe, today, in an
spothesis of glory accompanied
by expressions of gratitude of two
millions of his countrymen and
allies. Never in the history of
trance has a king or emperor
been afforded such honors as
those rendered the unknown sol
dier. The bodyt of Napoleon re
turning from St.' Helena did not
stir the French to such a depth
of emotion as did this obscure
nameless man.

Not a cheer was head and not
a tear was shed, the five year war
saving long since dried up the
veils of Paris' tears. The silence
was respectfully oppressive.' Tor.

Plot Declared Linked With
Building Trust Graft by
Evening World
YORK. Nov.
11. Re
sponsibility Xor the disastrous
Wall street explosion last Septem
ber, the echo of which was heard
around the world in denunciations
of "reds" and "anarchists," today
was charged to individual labor
ing men or. labor sympathizers by
the New York Evening World.
The paper, however, admitted it
could not explain the presence of
threats signed "Anarchist Fight
ers," found in a mail box near the
explosion. - f . -
In a three page story the paper
announced that the mystery of the
blast that killed nearly 40 persons
and injured 150 more "had been
solved." The theory advanced
was that the death wagon in
which the bomb had exploded had
not been sent into the financial
districtto terrorize "the capital
ist class," but had been intended
as a reprisal against Robert P.
Brindell. president of the build
ing trades council and 85 Brindell
workers employed in demolishing
the stock exchange building an
nex. Held up on the way the;
bomb was believed by the paper
to have exploded before it reach
ed its destination.
Seeking to link the explosion
with the "building trust graft,"
now being investigated by a joint
legislative committee, the paper
naming a houswreckers' union,
"The Evening .World presents
proof that 1800 men, nearly all
foreign born, sober, ' Industrious,
efficient and well . disciplined,
have within 'a spade of 18 months
been subjected to an amazing con
spiracy of greed and injustice, and
the explosion was the culmination
of this - tyranny. The - building
trtades graft was responsible for
the crime. The Evening World
does not charge the union,' as a
union, with responsibility. It was
the work of individuals, possibly
inside the , union, ' possibly the
work of sympathizers.
"Further proofs are presented
that the wrath and sentiment of
theseN working men and their fel
lows who knew of their tragic
losing fight -to avert vagrancy and
starvation in days of overflowing
labor opportunity was centered
not only on their arch-oppressor,
Robert P. Brindell. dictator of the
building trades council but upon1
house wrecking contractors."
Americanism Council U
Proposed by Galbraith
BOSTON, Nov. 11. Governor
Coolidge, vice - president - elect,

ican legion; Rear Admiral Harold
O- Dunn, commandant of the

General David C. Shanks, com

Mr. Galbraith urged the people
to prevent the appointment as
heads of the army and navy of
men "who pay political debts at
the expense of the nation."
General Shanks presented Mr.
Galbraith with the Victory Medal.
At a meeting of the Boston iCty
club tonight, Mr. Ga braitn sug

Treasurer Removed and
New Board Appointed
Lienenweber of Clatsop
County Elected President
of Association
' I '
Oregon county assessors are
aroused agaMint the present sys
tem whereby the state tax com
mission fixes the valuation of
public utility properties, and . as
an organization will probably ask
the next legislature to remove
the governor, secretary of state
and state treasurer from the
commission and, create a new
commission of three members,
two to travel about the state to
examine utility and other prop
erties and one to do the office
work. Also they will -ask the leg
islature to appropriate sufficient
money to finance. such a system.
This plan of the assessors de-
veloped at the conference with
the state commission and public
utility representatives Wednes
day and at the meeting of the as
sessors yesterday. The assessors
say they do not have access to
the records of the utilities except
in a limited way through the of
fice of the state tax commission,
while the utilities have free access
to the books of the assessors. They
declare it is utterly impossible to
have a valuation placed on public
ut'lity properties that is in pro
portion to the valuation placed on
th-i property of individual citi
zens. Individuals Also Jjaae
While the assesors admit that
some of the utilities are losing
money, they claim the utilities
are not distinguished In. this re
spect from the farmers or other
private property owners.
The- commission will not re
port for some time on the utility
valuations for this year.
As an alternative to the pro
posed plan to remove the gover
nor, the secretary of state and the
state treasurer from the-state tax
commission and have St board of
two traveling and one offire com
missioners created, it was sug
gested that the duties of the state
tax commission might Je at
tached to the public service com
mission, giving that department
authority to appoint two traveling
Conferences Opposed
The assessors are unqualifiedly
opposed to any future conferences
with the railroad attorneys on the
question of thi ratios or taxation
for the utilities for Mhe reason
that the attorneys after free ac
cess to the records of the asses
sors, have unlimited data at their
disposal, while the assessors are
without data from the records of
the utilities.
C. L.. Starr, former secretary of
the state tax comm'ssion. now a
tax attorney of Portland, in an
address to the assessors, ex
pressed the opinion that the
three-member commission plan
would be satisfactory, but said it
Would be unjust to add the duties
of the commission to any other
state department, such as the
public service commission.
Countyyassessors of Oregon, in
convention here yesterday, went
on record as favoring repeal of
the law passed by the legislature
of 1919 requiring the assessors to
take an asricultural and horticul
tural census each year. They de
clare it is impossible for them to
collect the correct data.

Marching afoot as one vt the vet-
lerans. General John J. rersningi
inai in sinking manner nienuir-
ialized its battles of the world
war. Hundreds of other former
dficers and men of th disn
were in the three mile liiu with
the, ?resent personnel of their Ut
companies and batteri.-a nianh
ing in the most thrilling feature
of the Armistice day reuni n .-f
"the first to go over and the last
to come back."
At the conclusion of the dem
on stration. General Perilling
decorated with their regimental
French fiurragere a detail of
crippled veterans of the division
from the Walter Ileid hospital
at Washington, praised n a brief
address the record of the division
as a standard of inspiration to
American soldiers through all the
future, and paid a touching trib
ute to the memory of those "who.
by their supreme sacrifice, have
made this day possible."
, Wtnesaed by thousands, the
parade especially signallized the
.great offensives in which the
division participated in France.
It was presented cm the north
parade ground, its borders bank
ed with tanks, field artillery,
huge "can throwers" and other
battlefield equipment. Eight
memorial arches told by inscrip
tion and decoration each its story
of some
big event in division
history from the disembarking
on French soil to the last success
ful drive on Sedan.
Emotions of Armistice Day
Should Help Bring Irish
LONDON, Nov. 11. Former
Premier Asqulth appealed for ad
vantage to be taken of the asso
ciations and emotions aroused by
the anniversary of Armistice day
which could not be put to worth
ier use than an endeavor to find
a basis of real settlement for Ire
land. !
' Premier Lloyd George, replying
contended that the present bill
was a generous measure but the
Irish people were not in a tem
per to give it proper understand
ing and consideration.
He declared that documents to
be published at an early date,
found in (he possession of Sinn
Fein leaders in 1918, provfng
thy were involved in a German
plot, would show the necessity ot
hiiftland retaining complete con
trol of Irish harbors. t
To give Ireland the iower to
raise a conscript army, he said,
would be a dangerous menace to
Great Britain and he warned the
laborites that with an army of
that kind in Ireland under full
powers of Irhh dominion rule,
conscription in England v would
become inevitable.
The premier contended that It
was equally Impossible to allow
Ireland her own navy which was
quite needless for her national
life and could only be used for
the peril of Great Britain and her
own destruction.
He argued that it was fruitless
to talk of granting fiscal autono
my to people still demanding a
republic. Expressing . a fervent
hope for the removal of misun
derstandings which would make
the future dark, the premier
closed with a note oT emotion:
"It may be that It was an Irish
soldier we honored today. Ire
land has had a great and brilliant
share in the empire. Some of her
greatest and most gallant war
riors hlped to fight for the em
pire. Some of her greatest states

Burke and the stern leadership of
Wellington all contributed fo

Contraction of Temple to Cost Not Less Than $200,000
and That Will Accommodate Membership of 2500
Planned for Fext Two Years Space Covers Two
and One-Half Lots Valuable Realty Held by'Lodge
Within the next two years it is probable that an Elks
temple, to cost not less than $200,000 and with accommoda
tion for a membership of 2500, will be erected at State and
Cottape streets, on the Breyman corner.
This became known yesterday when announcement was
made that the Werner Breyman residence property has been
purchased by the Elks for the purpose of erectinjr a home for
the Salem lodge. The price paid was $22,500. Purchase) was
made from the Breyman heirs.
The house now standing on the property is the largest
residence building in Salem and at the present time is vacant.
The ground space is two and one-half lots.
What immediate use will be made pf the house and lota
has not been determined. Neither have plans been drawn for
the new home, but it is understood that early action will be
taken towards deciding on the character of construction. It is
known that the building, when completed, will be an ornate
structure that will add much to the" beauty of that already
beautiful section of the city.
It is understood the building will contain all the conve
niences of modern Elk homes, including dormitory, gymna
sium, swimming pool and reception room in addition to the
regular club and lodge facilities.
The Elks are determined to make the new structure am
ply large. The lodge has rapidly outgrown the present build
ing, although it is known as one of the neatest Elks homes
in the state. Some of the most valuable real estate in Salem
is now owned by the Elks. Besides the newly acquired Brey
man property and the site of the present terap!e on liberty
street, the Elks own the corner at Court and High streets
where the Webb & Gough undertaking establishment Is lo
cated, t .
The building committee of the Elks through which the
deal was made is Charles R. Archerd, Frank T. Wrightman,
Dr. H. H. Olinger. E. W. Hazard, Thomas B. Kay. W. D. Evans
and Homer Smith.
