It is believed that such an ar -

Conference Held
Publication of the letter to
Chairman Johnson, dated Febru
ary 8, followed a series of White
House conferences on the ques
tions involved. Chairman John
son first discussed the subject
with President C'ooli.-lge and thn
Secretary Hughes. Later the pres
ident saw Secretary Hughes in the
same connection and still later
talked with Secretary Davis of the
labor department.
Commenting on Mr. Hughes'
letter which he. will lay before (he
committee tomorrow Chairman
Johnson predicted it would not
change the committee's view that
the exclusion provision should re
main in the bill. He pointed out
that 14 of the 17 members of the
committee had aprfroved the pro
vision, adding that his own stand
in favor of that provision had not
been changed.
"If the suggestion of Secretary
Hughes means that Immigration is
to be arranged only by treaty, I
feel pretty Bure that the commit
tee will not accept it. Chairman
Johnson said.

WASHINGTON', Feb. 14. De
velopments in the oil scandal
tumbled over each other so rapid
ly today and went so far afield
that when night came the national
capital had not recovered from
the shock.
President Harding's name and
the circumstances surrounding
tne sale of his - newspaper, the
Marion Star, were brought in by
Frank A. Vanderlin'. New York
banker, who promptly was sub-
poened by the oil committee to
appear tomorrow morning.
Bainbridge Colby, former -.'.cre-
tary of state and one time law
partner of President Wilson for a
brief period, was mentioned in in
formation brought to the corooiit-
tee in connection with the vast
array of lawyers retained by vari
ous oil interests. President Cool-
idge, informed by republican sena
tors that neither Silas H. Strawn
nor Atlee Pomerene could be con
firmed as special government
counsel in the oil cases, made pre
parations to withdraw their nomi
nations. Garfield Also Haired
James R. Garfield, secretary o'i
the interior I under President
Roosevelt, was considered for ap
pointment as one of the govern
ment attorneys, but investigation
showed that Mr. Garfield's , firm
had had legal connections with
the Doheny interests in Mexico.
Without a record vote, the sen'
ate adopted a resolution by Sena
tor Dill, democrat, Washington
of the oil committee, calling on
the state department for all dip
lomatic correspondence relating to
the Colombian "treaty, ratified by
the senate afteT Secretary Fall
had urged that It was necessarj
to protect American oil interests
in Colombia.
Then the senate adoptM ar
other resolution by Senator Kill
catling for similar correspondence
with Great Britain and other coun
tries relating to oil concessions.
Ground work for a sweeping in
vestigation of the administration
of Attorney General Daugherty
particularly his alleRod failure to
act in the oil scandal and on other
matters, was laid in a resolution
presented by Senator Wlmeler,
democrat, Montana.
iSutro to Testify
Steps were taken by the oil
committee to question probably
tomorrow Oscar Sutro, counsel for
the Standard Oil company of Cali
fornia, regarding his statement
that his and other oil companies
refrained from bidding on the
Fall, oil leases because they coil
sidered the leasing policy to be
without authority in law.
A subpoena was issued for Karl
C. Schuyler, a Denver attorney, to
produce correspondence relating
to Teapot Dome which was de
scribed to the committee as sen
Rational. t
J. Leo Stack, a Denver oil op
erator, followed up previous testi
mony of an understanding be
tween Harry F. Sinclair and
Standard Oil interests by testify
ing that he; had been informed a
week before hand by officials of
the Pioneer Oil company that Sin
clair would get Teapot Dome.
Resignation Rr ported
- Replying on the senate floor to
President Coolidge's statement on
Secretary Den by, democratic lead
er Robinson declared that eventu
ally the president, would have to
put out of his administration all
of those connected with the Fall
leasing program.
Some senators professed to have
definite informatiotr that both
Secretary Denby and Attorney
General Daugherty soon would re
tire from the cabinet but ; there
were no outward developments
either at the whie house or the
navy or, justice departments to in
dicate that the resignation of
either was impending. '

Mass Meeting Called By
Mayor Giesy to Discuss
Needs of Camp
Condition's of the Salem. auto-
mobile tourist park wilt be dis-
cussed at a meeting called by May
or J. B. Giesy at the Chamber of
Commerce rooms at 8 o'clock to-
night. Practically every organi
zation in the city has named 'a
committee to attend this meeting
and present the attitude of the
organization. By an open discus
sion of this sort it is hoped that
the general attitude of the com'
mu&ity may be learned.
Figures compiled by J. J. Rob
erts, former chairman of the park
board, in his report for Decem
ber 11, 1923, show a constant
gain in registration at the camp
grounds. In 1922 there were.
2963 automobiles stopping in the
camp, . with,, receipts totaling
$227.5.50. Last year this number
was nearly doubled, when 4535
automobiles registered, represent
ing total receipts of $3408.50. If
the automobile ccmp is adequate
and sufficiently attractive and
convenient to attract the attention
of visitors, who are criterions of
camp conditions, based upon the
increase of the last two years it is
estimated that 7500 automobiles
will register this year with esti
mated receipts of $5000.
Many Different Leaders
To Be Asked to Meeting
CHICAGO, Feb. 13. A nation
al conference of McAdoo support
ers, representatives of labor, farm
ers, "and other liberals" to con
sider the availability of the. for
mer secretary of the treasury as
a candidate for the democratic
presidential nomination was called
tonight to meet in Chicago Febru
ary is.
"The means yon propose for aa-
certaining whether the present
I partisan attacks unon vou have in
any degree lessened the demand
for your candidacy is the surest
method that can be devised."
Judge David Ladd Rockwell, na
tional director of the McAdoo cam
paign, said in a letter to the can-
didate acknowledging the latter's
suggestion that such a conference
be called.
"He was getting to be 12 years dd! He gave me respect
and obedience but for pure satisfaction and delight he turned

It was a rough world, heaven knows, full, of the average boy's
vices and crudities. There were In it, too, the usual 'bully,'
'braggart' and 'rowdy.' and plenty of lawlessness which among
boys passes for manliness. ,
"As the-days went on and these boys influenced him more
and more, there was in the whole situation sufficient danger
and promise of disaster. t
"Just at this time there fell into my hands a pamphlet called,
'The Boy Scout Scheme." In it were the - T
"A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helptnl, Friendly, Courte
ous. Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, Reverent.
"These are laws, mind you, not advice and admonitions, bat
laws self-imposed by oath. - ' , : i ' - '
"That settled It. If the Scout movement stood for these
things, I was with It, heart and 'soul. ' ' " ! - l '
"I have not told you that the 'gang had by this time joined.
Well, of course, tbey had. They were Boy Scouts now. From
the start the whole thing was a great success.? The "boy, for
one, benefited immensely. I tell you, humbly, that some of
the faults I had worked with for years began to disappear and,'
without fret or friction. He was ' trying to be a good Scout,
that was all. -V --'! .
"Now they have been Scouts for six months. - I can see the
organisation effecting the very changes I have longed to effect.
The 'bully' no longer deserves the name; the 'braggart became
a silent, useful member of 'society and-the 'rowdy as fine a',
boy as you would care to see. And neither their-mothers nor
I am responsible for that but only and solely the Scout Law
