BeSeves In Preparedness
Enough To Build Sewer
Peace, rather than war, is favored
by the l?alem Commercial club, and un
preparedness rather than being prepared
according to the expressed opinions at
the monthly meeting which was not
very largely attended last night.
As an officer of the State Security
League, appointed by tho governor,
State Treasurer Kay asked for an ex
pression of opinion as to whether the
club was in favor of preparedness.
While not in favor of a radical pro
gram, Mr. Kay did believe that we
should have a larger navy and better
coast defenses anil that we should so
Hnl D. Pntton wanted to know what
could bo accomplished by supporting
the league. Henry Meyers favored the
support, of tho league and especially
the building of a military rond on the
coast, au offered a motion that a reso
lution be sent to congress endorsing the
preparedness policy of the president.
Joseph H. Albeit expressed himself
as being opposed to any military pro
gram whatever or any preparedness on
the part of the country and thought
such a discussion should not come be
fore the club.
F. (. Beckabach believed that this
country should prepare, not only for
outside enemies but against our inter
iors weakness and that a special meet
ing should be called to endorse the mili
tary program of the president.
Opposes Standing Army.
"I am opposed to a standing army,"
exclaimed Judge P. H. D'Arcy. "A
nation well prepared will scrap with
anyone. We do not want war, and we
do not want a standing army. Tho war
in Kurope was caused from, the fact
that the nations were prepared. It is
an outrage to raise an army of 2,000,
000 men in this country. We do not
want war nor do we want to be pre
pared." The motion of Henry Meyers that a
resolution be sent to congress favoring
the preparedness policy was laid on the
table, on motion of Benjamin Brick,
and the Commercial club then proceed
ed to get down to the business for
which the meeting wns enlled, tho ma
jority of those present being men of
President Hamilton stated that proxy
votes will not be allowed at any meet
ing, in accordance with tho opinion ex
pressed by Judge Charles L. McNary
that they could not be legnlly used ac
cording to the constitution of the club.
The extension of the sewer on Thir
teenth street to the slaughnr house dis-
rict of the city will be urged before the
meeting of the council Monday, Jan
uary 31. Twelve of the councilmen
were in favor of extending the sewer,
provided a plant costing $30,000 or
more would be erected.

Friday noon, it was suggested that the
picture taken by the Puthe- company
Friday when the Oregon boosting let
ters are taken to the post office, be
shown only on the Oregon circuit. The
combination of extolling the Oregon

The improvement of tho fair grounds
mad, municipal bnlhing beach and tho
forming of an automobile club will come
before the people next Tuesday evening
at the meeting of to Civics depntment
to be held in te Commercial club rooms.
The agricultural department reported
that a meeting will be held Saturday
afternoon January 29 at the club rooms,
when the-farmers' market will be again
discussed with members of the fcrnnge
and Prof. Bouquet and Prof. McPber
sou of the O. A. C will talk on co
operation and markets and the raising
of better vegetables.
In order that sufficient data may be
kept regarding the general conditions
of tho prune trees in the valley, the
agricultural department will have

which it is hoped that a government
expert may be sent to this valley to

J. W. Marunv; president of the Sal
em Floral association, urged that all
members of the club with homes, join
the society and become thereby more
interested in. the planting of roses.
"Members, not money, is what we
want,' ' said Mr. Mnruny.
Mr. Davis' Name Is,
Joseph Dennis In
Eugene, Says Sheriff
Tho man, who under the name of
Davis, is badly wanted in this city on
a charge of robbery, was arrested in
Eugene yesterday under the name of
Joseph Dennis by Sheriff James Park
er, according to information received
last night by Chief of Polico Welsh.
Davis is the man who is charged with
the robbery of the residences of Mrs.
Provokluit and Mrs. McCauley in
Salem and Sheriff Parker states that
a watch answering the description of
the ono taken from Mrs. Provokluit '
rooms was fouud on the man when ar
rested. It appears that Davis followed the
same tactics in Kngcne that he did in
Salem and Sheriff Parker states that
the officers found two diamond rings
upon his person when he wn arrested
both of which were stolen in Eugene.
Davis will be tried in Lane county and
will not be brought to Snlem for trial
unless he escapes conviction in Lane
county. Davis' method was to rent a
room for a week and pay a small sum
down and then to ransack the house at
tho first opportunity.
Mother Jones' Talk
Puts End to Strife
Tndianapolis, Ind. Jan. 20. "Moth
er" Jones, angel of the mine camps,
stampeded the United Mine Workers'
convention- here today. Following an
address in which her unpolished oratory
raised 1500 delegates to a fury of en
thusiasm, she forced Duncan MncDon
aid to tho platform to shake hands with
President John White, thus ending a
bitter struggle between the vo that
has threatened the miners organization
Adolph Germer, of Illinois, also "hit.
the trail" nud made peace with White,
after which Germer's resolution pro
viding a probe ;of the White regime,
President Whito admitted that two
American financial agents of tho allies
are here in close touch with the miners.
U is believed that they are trying t
prevent a possible strike in the main
eoul fields which would tend to ham
per production of munitions.
Generals Disagree About
About Our Defenses
Washington, Jan. 20. While admit
ting that the gigantic, new guns nsed
in Europe could shell San Francisco
mid New York, General Weaver, chief
of the coast artillery service, denied to
the house military committee today the
clnims of tleneral Leonard Wood that
foreign troops could be landed at for
tified Americnn points.
Ho said he is asking congress for
guns with which to make San Fran
cisco and New York safe from attacks
by the big guns.
Regarding the Philippines, he said
thnt, from a military standpoint, they
are a liability rather than an asset.
