representative of the Angora gov
ernment m Constantinople de
clared today the allied invitation
to the peace conference could not
be accepted by the Turkish na
tionalists on the terms laid down.
We cannot accent the allied
terms because they propose to de
militarize the sea of Marmora ana
nart of Thrace, which would pre
vent us from bringing our troops
from Asia to Europe, said Hamm
in a statement -to the correspond
ent. "Neither can we accept liter
ally the condition that our army
shall not advance while the peace
conference is progressing. .
This would so circumscrioe
our movements that the enemy
would have ample opportunity to
prepare forces for a fresh attack
and would give the allies a chance
to complete their land and naval
reinforcements in the event tue
Eeiect Terms Proffered.
"Reeardine the straits, we have
already admitted freedom for the
nf all vessels through the
Dardanelles, but we are not pre
pared to define in what autnority
or body the control shall be vested.
That question must be settled at
a conference between the Turks
and the allies.
"We also insist that all nations
having commercial, military or
other interests in the Dardanelles,
tifiurtine Russia and Bulgaria,
shall participate in the conference.
"We further insist tnai we
Britain shall suspend all naval
and military movements in the

Protest by Defense.
"To call this proceeding in its
method and result 'due process of
law'; to justify the oeniai oi con
stitutional rights of the defend
ants by this judicial finding based
on ex-parts affidavits, seems to
me to disregard the fundamental
principles of our system of laws,
as well 83 to exercise a power spe
cifically denied to the federal
courts by an act of congress pass
ed in order to prevent the very
deprivation of liberty and proper
ty which is here accomplished,"
"It appears," he added, "that no
one of the named defendants is
even charged with the commission
of any unlawful act, and I am un
able to ascertain positively from a
careful study of the opinion of the
court just what unlawful acts are
found to have been done by any
of the defendants in furtherance
of an unlawful conspiracy.

"Apparently, however, the court
has found that there is proof of
an unlawful conspiracy In 'the

presumed to have knowledge that
these things were done."

L- Aside from their Interest in the
election ot Walter M. Pierce .to
the governorship, the Ku Kluxers
and their political friends in Ore
gon are chiefly concerned in the
new personnel of the legislature
and the organization of that body
along lines that will be favorable
to the long program of legislation
they have in view. Their efforts
to prevent the re-election ot Gov
ernor Olcott are no more deter
mined than the attempts they are
now making to control the legis
lature. First and foremost they doalre
to organize to their own liking
the house ot representatives, and
their preliminary work in this di
rectum has been successful in tar
greater measure than is generally
understood. They stand an excel

SIGHTS OF FAIR
Sunshine, Blue Skies And
Great Crowd Gives
Promise of Smashing
All Records This Week.
Sunshine, blue skies and thou
sands of persons were present to
day at the formal opening of Ore
gon's sixty-first annual fair and
officials predicted this afternoon
that tha exposition will, in every
phase, prove unprecedented. Yes
terday's crowd, it was announced,
wag 20 per cent larger than any
Sunday attendance in history.
Not alone in attendance, how
ever, will this year's fair be a rec
ord breaker. Never have so many
special features been arranged tor
the entertainment of the public
Never have the exhibits been so
large and so numerous, never have
the stock barns been so jammed.
Today the final touches are being
placed in all departments and to
morrow's crowds will see the fair
at its best.
Today Children's, Day.
Today was children's day and
youngsters took advantages ot the
privileges accorded them. All
ooys and girls under 12 years ot
uge were admitted to the grounds
free if accompanied by tbelr par
ents, and they filed through the
gates throughout the morning and
afternoon. During the morning
the crowds held largely to tha
buildings In which exhibits were
offered, but. Bhortly after noon
they turned toward Lone Oak
track for the racing program. At
2 o'clock the "straight - jacket
queen" gave an exhibition in front
ot the grandstand.
Sixteen counties are competing
for honors in tha agricultural pa
vilion and their exhibits are the
finest in years, according to W. A.
Taylor, superintendent ot tha
building. It was necessary to re
fuse exhibits from both Multno
mah and Umatilla counties, be
said, due to the fact that no mon
space was available.
Sixteen Counties Exhibit.
Sixteen counties alo were rep
resented in the agricutlural pavil
ion last year. This year the Judg
ing probably will not begin until
the middle of the week.
Indications are that the floral
exhibit, under the direction of
James Forbes of Portland, will b
the largest in history. Between
25 and 30 professionals will have
displays and about 15 amateurs
will enter, Mr. Forbes said. The
flower showing is to be made in
the center of the agricultural pa
vilion. Already more than 2000 persons
are registered at the state fair
camp grounds and Albert Toiler,
mayor, estimated this afternoon
that 8500 will be registered by
Wednesday. More reservations
have been received this year than
ever before, he explained. Last
yoar about 3000 persons wera at
the camp during the week.
Tonight the crowds will be en
tertained by a radiophone concert
and a band concert by Stouden
meyer's musicians. At 8 o'clock
the horse show will be opened and
at 8:30 there will be a display of
fireworks in front ot the grand
stand. Jacques Villiard Cuts Throat
