In discussing the proposed amend
ment to tho constitution to come be
fore the voters this fall, numbers 314
and 315, the governor discussed the pro
posed manufacture of malt extracts con
tainiug four per cent or less alcohol
and he could see nothing in the bill to
prevent it containing 10 per cent as the
rending say, "four per cent or less."
Another objection to the proposed
amendment was that it provided that it
should be lawful to sell to any per
son or individual just so loug as it was
put up in packages of any kind.
He thought the best way to stop the
drinking of liquors in the state wag to
prohibit outsiders from shipping it in.
The dry amendment provides that no
liquors shall be shipped into the state
for beverages and at the same time pre
vent the manufacture of malt liquors of
any kind in the state. In 'fact, the
lormer governor wag in favor of an ab
solutely dry state.

"It is much better to have the Sa
lem brewery building for a Loju manu
facturing plant than for beer and the
new industry should have the support
of the people as tho conditions here are
ideal for tho growing of loganberries."
Attorney General Brown was of the
opinion that prohibition had been voted
in xi stay. The liquor laws were be
ing observed by the express companies
and railroad and the onlv violations
were bv the jitney service on the bord
er, especially on the eastern line. He
favored a law that would make it un
lawful to even bring liquor of any kind
in tho state, the harder it is to get
booze, the easier it will be to keep the
state dry, ho said.
the four per cent beer provided for
in one of the proposed amendments
could easily include porter, ale and
stout as none of these contain necessar
ily more than the four per cent alcohol.
The manufacture of light beer, as pro
posed, is really the manufacture of ex
actly the kind of beer made in England
and Berlin and Mr. Brown had the fig
ures to show it.
F. H. Reeves, county chairman of the
Union dry forces Btated that .the obioct
of the union was to eecure the names of
those not registered and see that they
voted. Also, to educate the people as
to the correct voting on the amendments
that effected prohibition.

would be an organization similar to the

The commissioners reached no agree

is only one of several ideas, but the
Mexicans laid particular stress on it.
Legal questions were also taken up to
day. The Mexicans said they had not

Commercial Club Urges This

Sulem is to have street signs so that
even ho who runs may read and know
just where he is, while passing through
or stopping over in Salem. The civil
department brought up the street sign
proposition at the monthly meeting of
the directors last evening and Ivan G.
Mc Daniel, the manager, was instructed
to draw up resolutions urging the city
council to take some action and co
operate with the Commercial club.
The subject of a .'SO.OOO guarantee
fund was also brought to the attention
of the directors. This fund is to be
known as an industrial fund to en
courage industries to come to the city
and to assist them in every way. To
take up the subject and report at the
monthly meeting of the Commercial
club next Wednesday evening, a com
mittee was appointed consisting of

Portland September 20. The commis
sion claims that it cannot issue an
order that will stand a test in the

to support such an order.. For this
reason the commission has requested
that members of the Commercial Club
attend tho hearing and furnish the
necessary testimony on which sueD nn

Intimates Club Is Hampered
Work by Lack of
Benjamin Brick, director of the pub
licity, convention .and tourist depart
ment of the Commercial club handed
in his resignation last night at the
monthly meeting of the directors.
Mr. Brick was elected director of
this department and began taking an
active interest in the work immediate
ly after he assumed charge. June 7.
Probably the most important work un
dertaken by hini was that of directing
tne annual L Berry iair which was
Handled successfully and at a very
small expense to the Commercial club.
He has also been deeply interested in
the automobile touring road known as
the "valley loup", a journey of 128
miles from Portland by way of Mc
Minnville and Salem, returning by way
of Silverton. It was proposed to oil the
entire 128 miles and to enlist all towns
- The following resignation explains
Mr. Brick's attitude:
Joseph H. Albert, president of the
Salem Commercial club, and members
of the board of directors: Tlu is to
advise you of my final decision to re
sign from the membership of your
board as director of the tourist, pub
licity and convention department. I
regret to be compelled to take this
step, and wish to assure you that when
ever your body shows a tendency to
wards progress without fearing to an
tagonize this, that or the other party,
at the expense of the public good, that
you will always tind me at your side
doing my share for the welfare of the
Commercial club and the city of Salem.
'I also request that you also ap
point some one to handle the member
ship campaign. Wishing you the great
est success, I remain yours with great
est respect. Benjamin Brick."
men and students. The students de
clined to take the oath as they would
be leaving for school and the business
end professional men consider that they
have already made sufficient sacrifices.
According to occupations tompany M
had but Id laborers out of 142 men and
the other 12tl wre engaged in.' pursuits
with which military duty conflicted.
Twenty-one men are veterans in the
militia, serving second and third enlist
ments. These men who have served
from four to 10 years decline to sign
up for six years since they could re
inlist for one year periods under the old
law and all one year enlistments must
be lengthened to three years under the
new law which went into effect July 3.
Again many married men find that
their duty to their family must come
before military service when so many
single men come forward when active
service is promised, and volunteer.
rne fact that .Mexico backed down
when it was known that Companv M
was hastening to the border and there
was no chance for real active service
was also a keen disappointment to many
of the men who lost heavily, in a 'iin-
ancial way, through their absence from
their business. these men reel that
they have made a greater personal sac
rifice than their country's needs re
quired and they hesitate to put them
selves into a position where the same
situation would be likelv to recur.

with Postmaster General Burleson,
secretary McAdoo and Secretary Tu

the president's opinion as well as-that
of bis advisors that the Maine election
should arouse democrats throughout the
country to action. ....
There was a distinct air of optimism
about today's conference. Reports
from leaders in Washington and Utah
predicted democratic victories in those
states. Telegrams from all parts of the

over-confidence had given way to vig
President Wilson's appearance at his
office here today marked the formal

suite. The president's office is very
simple. There are no rugs on the floor
and the plain chairs about the room

swivel chair have been rented.
Before coming to Asbury Park the
president worked in his study at Sha

on official business which lagged while
he was in New London. During tho
