Latest reports show that relations
between the new government and the

In south Russia the bolshevlkl have
resumed their advance against Gen

southward against Crimea, and south
westward against the Kherson-Nlko-laleff-Odessa
area. In the former sec

end of the Isthmus and captured Ge

momentarily. In the latter area the
reds have pushed forward down the
railway toward Nikolaleff after occu

about 50 miles from Nikolaleff.

On the eastern half of the front the

V. Prescott, professor of public speak

membership this year consists of 75

which has yet belonged to the league

at length with "the rights of Ameri

have the right at all times to alter,
abolish or reform the government as
they think fit."
Voting by Mall
The privilege of voting by mall to
gether with automatic registration is
another proposed plank of the new
party's platform. It also embodies the
extension ot the direct primary to the
initiative, referendum and recall.
"The industrial and economic equal

Much of the morning session was
taken up by a talk of Walter Thomas
Wills, special organizer for the non
pa rtizan league in North Dakota, who
offered the services 9t the organiza
tion party of that group in forming
the land and labor league of Oregon.
Warning "that an attempt probably
would be made by "capitalistic
sheets" in Portland, and throughout
the United States to "camouflage" the
real intent of the party, J. C. Mur
phy, delegate from La Grande, urged
the insertion of a provision in the
platform to some way to combat this.
The tentative, plan of organization,
submitted by the organization com
mittee Just before noon, calls for a
chairman, vice chairman, secretary
treasurer and a state board of direct
ors, with local chairman and boards
of directors in each county. An inKja

The convention elected Frank E,
Coulter of Portland, delegate to the
Triple Alliance convention to be held
in Seattle February 14.
In his address Mr. Wills declared
that the coast states would be organ
ized in "a very short time," and that
there "will be a chain of non-partisan
states from Puget Sound to Lake
Superior in so very short a time that
it will shock them."
The proposed platform, subject to
change of the convention, follows:
That all men when they form a
social compact are equal In right;
That all power Is inherent in the
people, and all free governments are
founded on their authority, and insti
tuted for their peace, safety and hap-
And they have at all times a right

discussion. The debate began when A.

party should not accept the hospitality
of the club, or any other organization
because ot the probably feeling ot that
organization of domination over the

Sefton Is Called.
He voiced the opinion that the Uni
ted Land and Labor party would wage
battle against "capitalistic interests"
and said that, "now or never it might
as well begin to shift for Itself."
"The time has come," he asserted,
when the farmers who compose part
of this party must cast that method of
accepting what they can get for their
wares aside, and we must make it plain
that we are taking nothing in turn that
we do not py tor."
Attacking the assertions of Mr. Sef
ton, L. H. McMahan of this ctiy, said:
It Is our right as citizens to patron

I. as a member pf the Commercial
club, invite you there. It is no dis
grace for this party to accept the cour

Bryan said here today he hoped the au elective o0u1K.

as a minimum, that the rouowing
changes and additions be immediate

1 The extension of the direct

2. The privilege of voting by mail
together with automatic registration.
3. The abolition ot tne state sen

public utilities and natural resources.
6. The formation of a department
of Agriculture and Industry? and the
creation of a fiscal department, whose
function shall be the creation or a
state marketing system, a state bank
and such other industrial activities
as may be necessary and desirable,
6. The removal. of all unjust taxes
from productive industry and the sub
stitution therefor of an increasing tax
on community made values.
7. Proportional representation on

ventlon of labor men ln a southern city

of an American organization."

Pascal Traglio, vice-president of the
Salem Central Trades and Labor Coun
cil, and Phillip Holden of Portland,
organizer for the International Order
of Timber Workers, spoke in support
of the Commercial club.
"When you speak of the Salem Com
mercial club," Mr. Holden declared
significantly, "you are not speaking of
the Portland Chamber of Commerce.
I am proud of the Commercial club of
Salem. They are back of us."
Pleading, for harmony, L. E. Whiting
delegate from Portland, decried the
fact that already the United Land and
Labor party is being regarded as pure
ly a labor movement, and added: "The
organization we are trying to put over
now, gentlemen, Is not a labor organi
zation. It Is time to lose all ot this
factional feeling and to ceaBe discrimi

delegates, who wished It definitely
known that they are attending the con

State Federation of Labor, was elected
permanent chairman of the new party.
L. J. Sinieral, president of the Salem
Central Trades and Labor Council, was
chosen permanent vice-president, and
W. E. Kinsey, of the Portland Typo-
obthe bureau held Thursday afternoon
in the Commercial club. It Is prob

Mrs. E. J. Swafford were named to

Heading the concert program will be
Professor Arthur Von Jessen of Port
land, for many years head of the
school of music of Willamette univer
sity. He is' going a trio of concerts,
the two others to be given at the U. of
O. and O. A. C. Members of the bureau
feel especially pleased and fortunate
in securing Professor Von Jessen, his
reputation as a pianist being well
known to local music lovers, who have
not been privileged to hear him in
many years. Assitlng him will be sev

committee In charge of printing, ticket
sales and other details. She will name
her own assistants.
