MASTER OF GRANGE
Non -Partisan League Idea
Rejecied With Few Votes
In Its Favor
The election of officers occupied most
of the time at the business session of
the State Grange last night, the social
features beginning as soon as the elec
tion was over. As was preuieied by the
Capital Journal last night, C. E. Spence
was re-elected master. It was expected
the contest would be a close one but the
result showed the Master had a strong
grip on the position, for he was elect
ed by a vote of 70 to 39 for his com
uetltor. J. J. Johnson, of Multnomah
county. Following his election came that
of "the secretary and this developed a
pretty warm contest. In this the system
of second and third choice voting was
used with the following result:
Mrs. Howard, 64; Mrs. C. H. Bailey
64: 0. T. Dickenson, 26; Mrs. M. E
O'Neil, 26; Mrs. Winnie E. Braden, 13,
and O. C. Merrill, 1U.
Cyrus H. Walker, was r.e-elected chap
lain by a unanimous vote, the only offi
cer iriven that honor.

When the Non-Partisan league ques
tion came up for consideration in the
State Grange convention at 2 o'clock
"Wednesday afternoon, the committee on
resolutions, to which nad been referred
four different resolutions, aimed at the
league, reported in favor of adopting
a resolution similar ti the one passed
some time ago by the Lents Pomona
Moderate Eesolution la Offered

rescinded the former action taken by

definitely on record now. It provided, in
effect, that the question as to the atti
tude of the grange toward the league
should be left unchanged. It was this
resolution which provoked the great
est debate, and through the closed doors
of the houso of representatives much
oratory and applause could be heard.
When the vote was taken on the sub
stitute resolution, the result was 60
votes against to 61 for it. A motion was
then put to adopt tho resolution recom
mended by the committee and it was ap
proved without roll call by a pracHcally
Vote Almost Unanimous.
The resolution against joining hands
with tho League was passed by a vote
of 76 to 3, despite the fact that Master
Spence made an impassioned appeal for
it under a question of personal privil
ege. Mr. Spenco talked at length and
advocated strongly tho league, as well
as defending the officials of the league
who were arrested and indicted.
He asserted that the fact of their
arrest and indictmnt did not indicate
hor guilt, but he said, rather, the offi
cials were the victim of prejudice. Mr.
Spence also read at length from a book
of President Wilson's speeches uttered
prior to the starting of the war.
He refused to Btate the author of the
book from which he was reading until
h.3 had completed several pages. Shouts
continually interrupted him asking the
author of the book, but he continued
reading, refusing to enlighten the dele
Mr. Spence also alleged to the Grang
ers that he was being persecuted, but
despite his appeal tho resolution was
carried with a rush.
The resolution divorcing the Grange
from the Non-Partisan League follows:
"Whereas, The Grange, is a non-sec
tarian and non-partisan, order and the
State Grango at its last session at As
toria indorsed the Non-Partisan League,
which is a political organization; and
' ' Whereas, The whole people of Ore
gon under our laws are privileged lar
gely through Grange effort to enact
laws or sets of laws whereby their will
is made manifest by the use of the bal
lot, and therefore the State Grange of
Oregon is fullv able to act in represen
tatiou of the farmers of the state and
we bclive it should do so without any
affiliation with any political league,
while its efforts at present might well
fall into the hands of selfish persons
seeking their own political ends;
"Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the
Oregon State Grange in session at Sa
lem, June 5, 1918, goes on record as
not favoring any combination with any
political party or league whatever."
Master's Salary Increased.
Consideration of the resolution pro
viding that the master of the State
Grange be paid a efficient salary to
warrant his devoting his entire atten
tion to the work of the grange and
nominations of officers consumed the
entire time of the morning session. A
resolution was adopted providing a sal
ary of $1200, with 1300 additional for
expenses. Argument on the resolution
took the time of the delegates until
nearly noon, when it was broken into
by the nominttions and continued at
the opening of the afternoon session.
of State Grange
The morning session of the state
grange was largely devoted to hearing
reports and in considering resolutions.
One resolution adopted before the re
port of the election committee was made
was that "We give our newly elected
officers and their administrations our
unanimous support and encourage every
subordinate lodge to do likewise."
Reports were received as follows:

United States Senators
4c ' Washington, June 8. Charge
me that German submarines
had been "invited to American
shores by United States sen- 4s
4c ators," who attacked the eon-
4c duct of the war, Senator Lewis, 4c
4c Illinois, today precipitated a 4c
4c bitter wrangle in the senate. $
4c Lewi' charges were hotly re- 4c
4c sented by republican members,
4c who charged him, in turn, with 4c
4c "attempting to stop submarine 4c
4c warefare on American shipping
by making an attack on the 4c
republican party." 4t
Senator Brandegee had prev- 4
4c iously read into the record an 4c
4c editorial demanding what ez- 4c
4c planation the navy department
4c could give for failure to warn 4c
merchant shippers earlier of the
4c presence of U-boats in Aiuer-
4c ican waters.
4c , Senator Lodge, replying to 4c
4) Lewis, also declared that
4c "nothing has so stimulated and 4c
4c encouraged Germany as loose
4c brags and boasts about the num- 4c
4c ber of troops we haw trans-
4c ported, to France."
4c Lodge paid a glowing tribjite 4c
4c to the American- navy, con- 4c
4c tending it ''had never failed 4e
4c and would not faU now." 4
4c "The navy and the navy 4c
4c department have taken every 4
4c precaution that human fore- 4c
4c sight could take so far as I can
4c judge. Perhaps there are men 4

4c "No human mind can tell 4c
4c where, out of the great Atlan-
4c tic ocean, a submarine will

Biased Gets French War Cross
Lieutenant John iJissell, Pittsburg,
who graduated ahead of time last year
at West Point, has received the French
war cress. Ho crossed the river with a
machine gun detachment and for two
lays and nights saw nothing but fire.

so as not to be mistaken for the ene

three hundred French back safely.

" 'On May 31 the enemy threatened
to take Chateau-Thierry, attempting to
flank the town on our left, and a breach
was produced. The blnnk machine gnn
battalion, U. 9. A., was immediately
thrown into Chateau-Thierry with a
colonial infantry battalion. Immediate
ly the Americans reinforced the entire
defense, especially at the end of the
bridge. Th'jir courage and ability as
marksmen evoked the admiration of all.
" 'Crushed by our fire the enemy
hesitated and as a result of counter at
tacks, "Vigorously supported by the An
orican machine guns, they were thrown
beyond the.edges of the town. Chateau
Thierry remained entirely in our hands.
On the first of Jure towards night, tak
ing advantage of the darkness, the Ger
mans stole toward the large bridge in
which direction they penetrated through
the western suburbs to tho banks of
the Marne. In order to mask their move
ments they made use of smoke bombs
which made the aim of the machine guns
" ' At the same time, tho town un
derwent an extremely violent bombard
ment. At the moment when the German
arrived on the large bridge and believ
ed themselv.es to be in possession of
the same, a terrific explosion destroyed
the central pier. Some Germans who
had already crossed wera taken on the
south bank. The American machine guns
held the south bank and gave protea
tion for the withdrawal of troops re
tiring from the northern section for
the purpose of crossing the bridgo prior
to its destruction. Here again the cour
age of tho Americans was beyond all
praise. The colonials themselves, though
accustomed to acts of bravery, were
struck by the wonderful morale in tho
face of the fire, the coolness and ex
traordinary steadiness of their allies.
The watchfulness of the Americans
never failed them and with their ma
chine guns playing upon the approaches
of the destroyed bridges and footbridges
they prevented any re-attack by the
enemy. They will be relieved at the
Hume time as the French troops at the
side of whom they fought. Tho French
command, knowing their just pride, fear
that they would have humiliated these
valient troops if they had offered them
rest sooner than their French compan
ions in the fight. The- episode of the
Chateau-Thierry will remain one of the
most memorable deeds of this war. It is
a pleasure for all of us to know that
