When Drunkenness Is Attributed to

Berlin. April 18. Admiral Thorn-

drew from the Anu-Alconol Congress
at Dromon Wednesday while Dr. Froh-

poverty of the people must be re
moved as a step toward eradlcatlnc
alcoholism. The doctor said he had
found 27 children In a Vienna school
of 40 who had never seen a bed. Dr.
Frohllch was interrupted by protests
against "talking politics," but the
chairman. Dr. Delbrueck, said he
could not draw narrow lines. Ad
miral Thomsen thereupon arose and

meeting, permit me to leave the

Large Proportion of Farmers Who Come to Pendleton Do So
for the Benefit of Our Schools.
Lee Teutsch 1 am very much in
favor of tho bonds. We need the
extra room and facilities this prop
osition provides for, and can 111 afford
to turn down anything for the promo
tion of better schools. Tho basement
now being utilized for a school room,
and tho old academy building arc
either unfit from a sanitary stand
point, or else shabby and destitute
of conveniences, and the condition
cannot be adequately remedied with
the expenditure of any reasonable
amount of Incidental funds. Tho ad
ditional tax which this proposition
would impose will not bo a burden
comparable with tho benefits. These
bonds need not bear more than 44
per cent Interest. We havo already
had intimations that the proposed
issue will bo taken at 4. I 'lo not
consider that this amount of money
can possibly be put to any better
No Excuse for Opposition.
Dr. C. J. Smith I don't see how
the retailers and small business men
can see their way clear to vote
against this proposition. Such a
largo proportion of farmers and of
people from the small outlying towns
come here to give their children the
benefit of our very excellent schools
that that element must be considered
and likewise the money they spend
here, and the fact that a number of
them have built residences here for
the sole purpose of residing here and
sending their children to school, and
the further fact that more will do so
if the bonds carry who will not If
tboy aro defeated. By tho secession
from our midst of this element In the
event the bonds are defeated, this
town will lose 10' per cent of its val
ues before another school year be
gins. Let not those who are figuring
closely frnm a business standpoint
forgen that tho law gives tho
district tho first option on Its own
bond Issues, nnd that if tho district
falls to tako up its own loan that
the county treasurer then shall Bell to
the highest bidder. Hut really, my
argument and conclusions arc so well
known that to nuoto them further
would bo superfluous.
H. F. Johnson I favor the neces
sary accommodations for the schools,
but favor Issuing script rather than
bonds to raise tho money.
W. E. Brock I havo nothing to say
Haer & Daley The makeshifts wo
are now mittlnc un with in the con
duct of our schools aro an expensive
luxury, as makeshifts usually aro, ami
as they will continue to bo if wo de
pend upon them. I do not believe in
two-room cotiago schoolhouses, but
in eight and tcn-rooin buildings as
more economical to heat and tako
care of In other ways. Tho larger
buildings iro cheaper in tho long run
as long as nono of their rooms remain
vacant. I am really surprised that
some of our loading business men
aro opposed to tho proposition. Our
schools havo already brought to the
city farmers who buy lots and build
houses, and others who nro routers,
and these people all patronlzo the
business men. Further, If wo can
not offer them Increased facilities
better facilities, If you please, than
we now have, and proportioned to
the growth of the town's population,
these neonlo will go elsowhoro. They
, will go where they can get the school
advantages which tncy wnnt.

NEW ARMORED CRUISER WEST VIRGINIA
Miss Ashton Wilson Christened the Warship, Which Will be
One of the Fastest Afloat.
Newport News, Va., April 18. It
s estimated that 25,000 people wit
nessed the launching here today of
the armored cruiser West Virginia.
It was almost noon when the big ship
glided from the ways to take its
place in the list of tho American
A distinguished party attended the
event, headed by Governor White of
West Virginia and his olllclal staff,
and Including the West Virginia sen
ators and representatives and promi
nent officers of tlio army and navy
who came from Washington. The
christening ceremony was performed
by Miss Katherino White, daughter
of the West Virginia governor, and
who had as her maids of honor, her
sisters, the Misses Grace and Ethel
White and Miss Ashton Wilson,
daughter of ex-Governor Wilson.
As the sound of the hammer under
the Wett Virginia's keel slowly died
away the waiting multitude was
breathless in anticipation of the rap
Idly approaching moment when the
5000 tons of shapely constructed ar
mor would leave the ways, Suddenly
from the depths below came the
measured sound of a saw. As though
by magic command every sound was
hushed and a stillness fell over the
expectant mass of humanity; every
ear was strained to hear the sound
of the mightv steel blade as it slowly
out Its way Into tho large oak plank
which alone separated tho s iding
and the greased ways. As tho bottle
of champagno was surrendered to
Miss White the silence that pervaded
the yard was oppressive. Suddenly
there was a snap, tho crackling of
timber, and for an Instant the mon
ster hull quivered on its bed.
Gathering strength and clutching
tho gaylv decked bottle more firmly
as the ship started down the greased
ways. Miss White, the proudest young
woman In America, quickly broke the
bottle against the receding bow. As
the beautifully decorated bottle wijb
crushed into a thousand fragments
against the lmpressionlcss steel
prow of tho mighty warrior the fair
sponsor drew a breath of gratulatlon
and from her parted lips with woman
ly sweetness fell tho words: I chris
ten thee West Virginia."
Tho great cruiser, radiant with
bunting, red, white and blue, swept
gracefully down to meet the blue wa
ters of the James, and in their em
braco complete tho symbol of the
starry flag. Cheering was Incessant
and the a!r was laden with caps anil
hats as the enthusiastic multitude
gave full vent to their patriotic feel
ings. The big hull had meaiiwhllo
floated gracefully out to midstrciim
where she was brought to and an
chored. For a quarter of an hour the
tugs and other small craft with which
the river was filled kept up an inces
sant tooting of their whistles in honor
of the latest addition to Undo Sam's
navy. When everyone had finished
cheering the christening party, num
bering 500 persons, boarded tlio
steamboat Newport News which con
ducted them .to Old Point Comfort.
Hero they were the guests at nu
elaborate banquet furnished by Cal
vin B. Orcutt, president of the Now
port Nows Shipbuilding and Dry
Dock company, the builders of tho
West Virginia and a number of tlio
other crack cruisers and battleships
of the United States navy.
The cruiser launched today, when
completed, will bo ono of tho fastest
ships In the service. Shu will bo 502
feet over all, nearly 70 feet beam,
will displace more than 15,000 tons,
nnd draw 24 feet of water. Two sets
of triple expansion engines will de
velop 23,000 horse power, which will
drive her at a speed of 22 knots. Hur
bunker capacity will bo 1850 tons,
and she will carry 43 offlceri) and 783
An armor belt, six Inches thick at
the maximum, will protect her, nnd
four 8-Inch guns In turrets will con
stitute her main battery. Fourteen
G-lnch rapld-flro guns will make up
her broadsides, and she will carry a
secondary battery of 18 3-incli, two
3-pounders, four 1-pounder rnpld-flrc,
six Colt automatics, two machine
cuns. and two 3-Inch field pieces.
The West Virginia Is of the same
type as tho Nebraska, California,
Maryland, Colorado nnd South Dako
ta, all of which when completed will
be superior in fighting abilities to any
armored cruiser now In service or
