PLANT IDLE? CERTAINLY
A GOOD ITA LIAN LAW
Mr. Rogers at Muscle Shoals
inspects with his mournful cow­
boy eye a $150,000,000 plant
built by the people to produce
nitrogen to supply cheap fertili­
zer for farmers and explosives
in case o f war.
Mr. Rogers remarks that such
a plant lying idle is enlightening.
It means that the government
isn’t quite ready to deliver the
plant over to the power trust.
And until the power trust gets
it, that trust won’t let anybody
else use the Muscle Shoals plant.
Thanks to Mussolini’s common
sense, a new law compels mer­
chants in Italy to mark prices
plainly and stick to the prices.
That will increase foreign buy­
ing, especially by Americans,
who do not like tb pay double
or devote half an hour to bar­
gaining over a trifle.
Merchants o f Italy won’t like
it, but their business and pros­
perity will increase.

Meeting.
Will
For members o f the Daughters
o f the American Revolution in
Oregon, interest centers in the
state convention of the organiza­
tion held in Portland at the
Multnomah hotel, Thursday, Fri­
day and Saturday o f this week,
and especially in the election of
state regent.
This is the 15th
annual state conference and will
be called to order by state regent,
Mrs.
Gordon
MacCracken .o f
Ashland, who will
preside at
each session
One o f the outstanding fea­
tures o f the conference will be
the banquet at the Multnomah
hotel in the evening at which
Lieutenant-Colonel Foster Smith
of the United States infantry re­
serve corps o f Los Angeles will
speak on “ Our Peace Establish­
ment,” Governor Patterson will
also speak at the banquet.
High interest will be manifest
in the election of officers Sat­
urday morning with - Mrs. Me-
Credie o f the Portland chapter, a
possible nominee, while Mrs. E.
C. Apperson o f McMinnville and
Mrs. R. E. Wattenburg of Klam­
ath Falls have announced their
candidacy for the office.
Mrs.
Wattenburg is now first vice­
regent.
Certain proposed revisions in
the by-laws o f the state society
promise to lend further interest
to the business sessions o f the
convention. One proposed change
provides that the state regent’s
term o f office be changed to a
three year^term, coinciding with
the national president-general’s
o ffice term, and would provide
that the regent elected this year
hold office fo r one year only, in­
stead of the customary two year
term; the three year term tenure
to follow in the year 1029. An­
other proposed revision to come
before the convention is fo r the
abolishment o f the nominating
committee,
providing
that all
nominations come from the floor.
The three day conference ses­
sions are open to members, wo­
men eligible to membership and
visitors.

A few years later in the sum­
mer o f 1893, when I was in V il­
la Franch, a small harbor between
Nice and Monte Carlo, I visited
James Gordon Bennett’s yacht
and was given a copy of the Paris
edition o f the New York Herald
in which I read that Thornton had
been killed by one of the natives.
Bennett was the owner o f the
New York Herald but lived in
Paris and up until hia death a few
years earlier had only visited the
United States twice in 36 years.
A fter making our regular calls
aC Point Barrow and the Seal is­
lands, we left for San Francisco
late in November.
In 1891 on our trip north we
had as a passenger,; a professor
who was to be landed near Mt.
Saint Elias, now klown as Mt.
McKinley, his object being to join
an exploring party fitted out by
the Frank Leslie, magazine com­
pany. W e chose what we thought
looked like a safe landing place,
but unfortunately it was not, a
treacherous current with a heavy
undertow capsized the boat with
a subsequent loss o f six people,
the professor, one lieutenant and
four men, one o f the boat’s crew
was the only one to reach shore
safely. Another boat was immed­
iately sent out but no sign o f the
missing could be found. The one
man who was saved was found
standing on the beach in a dazed
condition and had to be brought
to the boat. A fte r being brought
aboard it was found that a most
peculiar thing had happened to

had turned snow white, but the
hair below the cap had retained
its natural color, an icy bath and
the reception given him by a lot
o f black bears were undoubtedly
the cause o f
this peculiarity.
A fter a few hours he was back
to normal again and no serious
after effects were ever noticed.
A fter cruising around until the
following day, s arching fo r the
bodies without success, we con­
tinued on our way north with
beautiful and calm weather all
summer.
Nearing Bearing straits on our
way south from Point Barrow,
we were informed that the na­
tives on King island were starv­
ing and without sufficient provi­
sions to last them during the
winter.
Captain Healy immed­
iately headed fo r St. Michaels
where the Alaska Commercial Co.,
had

and
laid in a supply o f flour fo r their
relief. We found the natives in
a destitute condition and the re­
port we made to the government
had, no doubt, a great deal to do
with bringing reindeer to Alaska
the following year.
It took us three days o f extra
steaming to bring the flour, but
the captain would have gone much
farther had it been necessary.
Captain Healy may have seemed
hard hearted but his concern for
the natives were as if they had
been his own wards instead o f
the governments.
No one ever

Sergeant Peck, Who Served
With DeAulremonl to Re
ceive $5300.
According to the district attor­
ney and sheriff's office, the re­
ward for the capture o f Hugh
De Autreniont, Siskiyou tunnel
killer and bandit, has been paid
to Sergeant Peck, who served
with the youth in the army in
the Philippines. It amounted to
$5300.
Peck and Hugh DeAutremont
were employed in the same de­
partment at Los Banos barracks,
near Manila, and came in con­
stant contact with each other.
Peck became suspicious because
of boastful remarks made by De-
Autrvmont, who was enlisted un­
der the name o f James Price.
When Peek was discharged he re­
turned to San Francisco and in­
formed the Southern Pacific spe­
cial agents and postal inspectors.
They acted upon his “ tip” and
the arrest of DeAutremont fol­
lowed.
The reward for the furnishing
o f information leading to the ar­
rest o f the twins is still undecided
but the list of claimants has been
reduced to 21, according to Dis­
trict Attorney Newton W. Chan­
ey. The original list consisted of
about 60 residents o f Steuben­
ville and Hanging Rock, Ohio,
including the chief o f police and
members o f the police force of
Steubenville. A reward of $5300
rests upon each of the twins.
Two women residents of Hang­
ing Rock, the tiny Ohio hamlet
where Ray and Roy lived for

be slated for the largest share in

Private Peet Talk* to
High School Students
on “ Inexcusable Lie”
INJURED
IN
WAR
Soldier W ho Wrote “Pri­
vate Peet” During
World W ar U Cities
Guest.
Harold Peet,
internationally
known as “ Private Peet," gave a
lecture at the Senior high school
this morning, using “ The Inex­
cusable Lie” as the Bubject of
his splendid discourse. “ The in­
excusable lie,” the title o f his
latest book is an appeal to the
different peoples o f the world
for peace and understanding.
Private Peet is a native o f
Cdtiada and was badly wounded
in the World War, one shoulder
badly shattered and one lung en-
tiiely gone. His experiences in
the! war were responsible fo r
“ Private Peet,” his first book
which was written before the
war was ended depicts the hor-
for o f war and especially o f
trench life.
"Th e inexcusable
lie” is his lutt'st hook, which was
written in sympathy with the
world peace movement.
He has been touring the world
since the war and appearing be­
fore the different nations on his
mission, fostering
the peace
movement. He speaks before the
young people in the. high schools
in order to present to the rising
generation the truthi/ about war.
According to Mr. Peet, all nations
have a sufficient amount of pat­
riotism or rather pride in the
thought that their peculiar coun­
try has the ability to lick the
other fellow, but the young
people have an entirely mistaken
idea about war, due to the war
histories that were written up as
it were from “ the arm chair.”
Those who never were near the
firing line or had the least idea
or desire to be there.
While Private Peet does not
believe in disarmament o f nations
he feels that war is very un­
sportsmanlike the way it ii| now
carried on, and that the young
men who are called upon to give
their lives for a false ideal,
should he more thoroughly ac­
quainted with the truth before
stepping blithely out to court
death. “ Warfare, as i| is now
conducted, can never adjust the
differences o f nations,” he as­
serted.
“ There must be some­
thing more vital, something more
lasting, a wrong has never yet
been the means o f righting a
wrong,” he declared.
Private Peet, who has been
lecturing extensively throughout
thv world is now resuming his
place on the lecture platform in
America, appearing on different
lyceutn morses and in connection
with
differen t
organizations
throughout the rootry.
