Oregon National Guard Now Holds
Third Place Among AH States of
Union, War Department Indicates
Oregon's National guard
jumped to third place in the
entire United States in strength
and "efficiency, as shown In
the monthly report received
at the adjutant general's of
fice yesterday from the sec
retary of war. Oregon con
tinues far ahead of all Pa
cific coast and western slates
and in the entire United
States Is led slightly In
relative strength by Rhode
Island and Minnesota. The
state of Washington has
dropped back to 13th place,
while California has sifpped
to Xr.tb place in the nation
al procession.
That Oregon would have
ben In first place long ago
except for exhaustion of the
state's military funds, is the
trpinion among national guard
officers, who recall that Ad
Highland Patrons Adopt Re
solutions Appealing To
County Court for Reten
tion of Department.
Two Blocks of Pavement Are
Signed For; Water Mains
To Be Extended
Resolntions addressed to the
county court approving the work
of the county health nur?e and
asking that, the department be
continued tn this county, were
adopted unanimously at a meet
ing of the Highland Improvement
association at the Highland school
last night, at which aoout 12.1 of
the patrons of the t-chool were
present. Many of the parents
and residents of the Highland dis
trict took the opportunity of ex
pressing themselves as favorable
to the public health iiurse move
ment and as appreciative particu
larly of what has been accom
plished in Marion county.
Two blocks of pavement, from
Market to Hood on Fourth street,
were reported as having been
signed up for pavement. The
water company was also reported
as having agreed to extend lh-i
water mains on Cherry avenue
within GO days.

A five-reel film, "Heads Win."

sibilities for a man who improves
his mind by putting bis spare time
to advantage, was shown.
The resolution adopted follows:
'Whereas the Oregon Tubercu
losis association has paid all ex
penses of a public health1 nurse in
Marion county for six months In
order to demonstrate the value
of this service, now established in
15 other counties, and,
"Whereas, in the Highland
school and community we have
had concrete evidence of the real
value of this service, and
"Whereas, this nurse has ex
amined 1917 children for com
municable diseases, and given 136
school talks and organized 91
health crusades similar to that in
Highland. and has examined
physically 1663 children, and has
defects requiring at-
tention. including 901 cases of
bad teth. 503 with throat trou
bles, 2X2 with eye diseases and
a long list of other defects that
slowly but surely undermine the
health and working efficiency,
and in the rie results of time col
lect their certain toll of prema
ture deaths and great loss to the
community; and.
Whereas, scientific preventive
medicine and hygiene through
public health service is incompar
ably less costly to the taxpayers
of th community than the enor
mous totals of cash individually
paid to physicfans. trained nurses,
hospitals and patent medicine con
cerns by panic stricken sick peo
ple or their relatives trying to
have cured what should have
been prevented, perhaps far back
in their childhood, and
"Whereaf. the prevention of a
single serious school epidemic of
measles or scarlet fever, typhoid
! fever, or diphtheria will usually
save the community affected
more than the entire cost of the
public health nurse for a year, at
the present rate of per
month for salary and about $
for traveling expenses.
"Therefore, be it resolved, that
the county court be requested to
use every effort to maintain the
service established by the Tuber

Intense Relief Shown When
Contemplated Strike of
Transport Men Fails To
; Hodges is Criticized for Tak
ing Too Much Authority
Into Hands
LONDON, April 1".. A tense
day, replete in surprises, closed
tonight with an air of quietude!'
There was intense relief over
the knowledge that the contem
plated strike of the railway and
transport workers had been called
off and there was renewed hope
of industrial peace.
The situation tonight was that
the strike of the miners contin
ued and that everything depend
ed on the extent on which Frank
Hodges, general secretary of the
miners' federation, would be able
to maintain his authority over
the rank and file of the miners.
It is said that Mr. Hodges
threatened to resign but that the
miners' federation refused to lis
ten to him A national confer
ence of delegates of the federation
has been called to discuss the
whole question.
The breaking away from the
triple alliance of the railwaymen
and the transport workers on the
miners' rejection of the moder
ate course recommended by Mr.
Hodges, with a view to securing
a temporary adjustment of the
wage dispute, seems to have
brought matters to a crisis where
it was imperative to take a de-
i rtsion one way or another. Mr,
Hodges, it JLg declared, was se
verely criticised by hi- colleagues
for having made what was termed
a peace offer to members of the
house of commons without auth
ority. He is aid to have immedi
ately tendered his resignation,
lthough the general situation is
considered to have greatly im
proved, the government has not
relaxed its measures, military or j
otherwise. i
Owners Will Adjust Ih Wage, j
The mine owners issued an- j
other statement tonicht repeating
their previous stated opinion that
the wages of the lower paid men
ought to be adjusted and declar
ing they still were ready to meet
the miners in conference.
Not since the war wa? declared
has the hojise of commons wit
nessed more dramatic fluctuations
of hope and anxiety than wore ex
perienced today in connection
with the threatened industrial
crisis. . Last eveninc everything
looked black, but after it became
apparent that the mln owners
were prepared to consider a re
vision of their oriainal position,
and after the statement of Frank
Hodges, the miners secretary,
that lie was prepared to discuss
the question of wages, leaving
the question of a national pool
for future settlement, hopes rose
and they still were high when the
commons m t at noon today.
On th" assembling of the house
rumors were current that Mr
Hodges had been thrown over by
the miners executive and also
that he bad resigned. Then the
news came that the miners had
refused to meet the owners and
were insisting on their original

Former Provisional Prsident
Said to Be in Open
MEXICO CITY, April lk-
General Pablo Gonzales, former
provisional presidents today
crossed the Mexican boundary
ljne from the United States at
some point between Matamoras,
near Brownsville, Texas, and San
Fernando, according to a war of
fice announcement. He Is said to
be in revolt against the govern
ment. Eariy in April General Pablo
Gonzales, then in Laredo, Texas,
d.sclosed the existence of a plan
to overthrow the Mexican govern
ment, but said he had nothing t6
do with it, directly or indirectly.
"I consider as very laudable,"
he declared at that time, "the
purpose of those Mexicans who
eeek as their highest aim the sal
vation of my country, menaced as
it is by the bad management and
inconceivable turpitude of those
men who have seized the reins of
the administration."
General Gonzales then admitted
it was his understanding that he
would be offered the leadership of
tit? movement. In this connection
he said:
"In the event that I accept the
commission which is within my
right, I shall certainly continue to
respect the laws of neutrality of
this hospitable country, the cradle
of human yberties."
General Gonzales was captured
in July 1,1915. by federal forces
near Monterey, as the intellectual
head of proradic revolts. After a
short time his unconditional re
lease was ordered on the ground
that he no longer constituted a
peril to the administration.
Pablo Gonzales in turn has been
minister of communications, com
mander of the constitutional
forces in Mexico City and for a
period of three weeks, in May.
i 1!I2" he was in victual personal
control of the administration of
national affairs, subsequent to the
evacuation of Mexico City by
President Carranza. He is best
known as the conqueror of the
state of Morelos. which he wrested
from the Zapita rebels after they
had held undisputed possession
for nine years.
LAKKDO, Tex., April 15. -
General PaMo Gonzales, who was
reported in a war office announce
ment tonight from .Mexico City to
have crossed the Mexican boun
darv today and is said to be in re
volt against the Mexican govern
ment, was here tonight and has
been here for several days.
There is no revolution under

section of the border.

Chairman Fordney of the ways
and means committee precipitated
the charges of senate dictation
when he declared the senato
would accept no changes In the
bill as It was passed last: session,
not so much as "a crossing of a
'f or the dotting of an T -

"Those are instructions," he
added. Mr. Newton, who had the
floor, retorted that he would not
