of a deficiency appropriation, al
though no part, of this will come
from the national guard funds
which were . just sufficient to
bring the guard through to the

revert will be from the naval'mil

without recognition or support by
he navy department.- He recom
mends the dismissal of the pres
ent naval mtlitla, made up of a
mere handful of men in Portland,
saying: "I - recommend that the
naval militia "as constituted at
present be dismissed, as I am
unable to convince myself that
such a force. - maintained as. a
state force, is able to serve any
useful purpose so far as -national
and state defence, is concerned

ent policy of the naval depart
ment." - V - .

tribute to the naval militia as it
existed at the time of the world
war outbreak, saying that these
men responded as a unit to the
first call and served throughout

arduous service.
Guard Xatton Defence.
Importance of the national
guard as a part of the first lin?
of land defence is emphasized by
the report, which says that the
burden of national defence .has
been thrown back upon the na
tional guard under the new de
fence law passed by congress last
June. The national guard is sub
ject to call, day or night. In event
or invasion or war abroad, the
report states.' and it Is the citizen

who again must stand the brunt
of the first buttles, holding an
enemy at bay while the country

The 1917 report shows that he

Tentative establishment of a

an alternative writ of mandamus
against T. It. Handley, state cor
poration commissioner requiring
him to appear January 10 and
show cause why he should not
pass on an application of the Su

to sell stock in Oregon and either
approve or reject the application.
A petition on behalf of the com
pany was filed by A. M. Crawford
and J. G. Richardson, attorneys
of Portland.
The plaintiff, a common law
concern, made its application No
vember 29. Corporation Com
missioner Handley refused to ac
cept it. on grounds that it hhould
operate as a trust company, until
he had submitted it to the attor
ney general. Attorney General

contention and held that the com
pany should come under the state
banking department. On the basis
of the opinion . Handley . refused
