Murderer Spends Pleasant
Two-Week Vacation In
Western Oregon His
After a two weeks' outing in the
hills, Bennett Thompson is back home
again. He is busy sawing wood today.
. Bennett Thompson is the man who
murdered Mrs. Helen Jennings and
l"ea iustman, rortiand jitney driver,
near Tualatin two years ago. He waa
sentenced to life imprisonment in the
But two weeks ago he and Fred Thur-
ber left for a short outing. They took
their departure by night by cutting a
bole through the bars in the flume
which runs through the prison yards.
Ihompson was icaptured yesterday
afternoon near Rainier, in Columbia
county, as he was taking a drink from
the Columbia river. While he had his
face down to the water, Deputy Sheriff
James Jesse slipped up behind him.
When Ibompson turned to se who was
there he looked into tho barrels of a
brace of revolvers, and had no choice
but to quietly surrender.
Warden Murphy, who was in Port
land with his automobile, was notified
and he went to St. Helens, where depu
ty Sheriff Jesse, took Thompson, to
get the prisoner. The warden, with
Prison ! GSiard MJoreloek, Tdturned
Thompson to the prison last night
And his vacation is over.
Thompson told his captors that if
he had been given five minutes more
time ho would have crossed the river
and caught a freight train for Seattle,
from where ho expected to beat bif
way into Canada, where he intended
to join the Canadian army.
"And then I would like to have seen
you fellows try to get me back," he
said. "You sure would have had some
time trying it, belieVe me."
He said he and Thurber, when they
left the prison, hiked along the Oregon
Electric to Malloy, and tnen to uswego.
Next they went to Milwauki iand
Lents, where they separated. Thomp
son made his way to St. Johns, where
he got a row boat and crossed to Linn
ton, from where he made his way over
mpuntain trails to Rainier.
Use Commission Funds
For Hospital Beckwith
Harvey Beckwith, chairman of the
state iudustial accident commission, is
in favor of using funds of the commis
sion to build a special hospital for the
commission on the grounds of the Uni
versity of Oregon Medical school in
He says the business of the commis
sion is grown until a hospital is badly
needed to give the best attention to the
men injured in industrial accidents
throughout the 'state. The revenues of
the commission are now so large, he
points out, that one month's income
would bo sufficient to build the hospital-
It is his idea that in connec
tion with .the hospital should be1 an
administrative building for housing the
commission and its large force of em
ployes. But before any such plan takes def
inite shape, he says the employrs and
employes who are the chief contribu
tors to the industrial accident fund
should be consulted and should give
"The money really belongs to them,"
said Chairman Beckwith, ".and if they
approved the plan for building a hos
Dital I do not believe there would be
jany objection from oher sources, as

money and would not cost the general
taxpayer a cent."
Mr. Beckwith is going to take the
matter up with some of the biggest
employers, who contribute the largest
sums to the fund, and if they approve
the proposition would be put up to the

DOES NOT INCLUDE
Only limited Objectives Were
Sought In Recent
By J. W. T. Mason,
(Vaited Press Wfir expert)
New York, Aug. 13. The allies' ad
vance is slowing down in conformity
with Marshal Fuch's settled policy of
not wasting the lives of his troops
when time i working so powerfully
on the side of the allied cause.
In substitution for direct assaultt
with their heavy casualties to the at
tacking troops, Marshal Foes is again
reverting to his squeeze plays Pres
sure at strategical points is now the
dominant feature in plans now being
formed at Foch's headquarters. The
Germans must eventually fall back to
the old Hindenbnrg- line and beyond
the Cheniin-Des-Dames, as well, and
Marshal Fork is showing that he will
not force this retirement within any
given number of days.
Neither the Marne attack nor the
present drive in Picardy constitutes a
true major offensive. Marshal Focn,
issued a firm veto in each series of
operations against any extension of the
assaults beyond strictly limited object
ives. The enemy was caught in traps
on both occasions and outguessed and
During the Marne engagements, as
well as now, Marshal Foch has revealed
that it is useless for von iliudenburg
to seek to entrap the allies. At the
point where Von UindenDurg sets out
to "lure the allies on," Marshal Foch
immediately brings his commands to
a 'standstill. This display of caution
and or regard for the lives of his men
is in full conformity with Marshal
Foch 's ultimate strategy.
Neither Picardy aor the Chenim-Des-
Dames, nor even, the Belgian border
contains the allies' main objective.
That objective is the River Rhine and
beyond. It would be short sighted
policy for Marshal Foch to use up his
man power driving Von .tiindcnDiirg
back to Belgium by direct assaults
through French territory, in preference
to use this same men power for an
invasion of Germany- Once the ab
lies, led by America's millions, are well
into Germany, the rest will folow.
Bat. in the meantime, whenever Von
Hindenburg commits gross errors of
strategy, Marshal Foch's purpose is to
take full advantage of these mistakes
Thus the allies' casualties will be kept
down for the great drive to the Rhine,
but meanwhile German morale will be
subjected to steady deterioration.
Professor Matthews' Report
Was Considered at Secret
Session This Morning
When the state consolidation commis
sion met today, its first official action
was to adopt a motion in favor of hold
ing a secret session, and the newspaper
men present were invited to leave.
The motion for a secret session was
made by Herman Von Burstel, secretary
of the commission, at the request of Pro
feasor J. M. Matthews, the consolidation
expert employed by the commission. No
one seconded the motion, but Chairman
Johnson put it to a vote. Von Borstcl
voted aye; no one voted no, so the mo
tion was declared carried.
It was stated that the commission
wanted to talk over a few things, and
probably this afternoon an open session
would be held when the newspaper rep
resentatives could be present. .
The plan, as outlined, is to abolish all
elective state offices, except those 'of
the governor, secretary of state and
state treasurer, which arc constitutional
and cannot be abolished without an
amendment to the constitution. In place
of the elective offices the governor will
be given authority to appoint practical
ly all the state officials, the same as
the kaiser now does in Germany.
It is proposed-to divide tho state gov
ernment into eight or nine departments
and provide for a chief or a commis
sioner to head each department. In
most cases, these commissionerships will
be new and extra officeg, while the pres
ent officials might be retained as bureau
chiefs under the commissioners,

take all ilie state institutions from the

totaled $273,835, according to figures
compiled by Slate Fire Marshal Wells.
These figures include the $170,000 loss

SPAIN HAY BREAK
WITH GERMANS IS
LATE LOND ON REPORT
Torpedoing of Two Spanish
Steamers Has Caused j
London, Aug. 13. That a break be-1
twea tyai- and Germany is likely i
was reported here this afternoon.
The sinking of two Spanisb steamers i
by German submarines fed to con- j
sidersble unrest in Madrid. This was,
followed by the internment of the crew
of a U-tat that sought refuge iu a !
Spanish port. I spite of 'his, the
Spanish cabinet, following a special j
meetiag Sunday, issued statement i
declaring that it was vital for Spain
to maintain its neutrality.
Rumor Creates Interest.
Washington. Aug. 13. Reports that
Spain may bo, about to break with
Germany were received here with un
disguised' interest today.
Confidential reports here have long
ndicated that Aluhonso's has been "ou
the fence" awaiting developments.
There is a strong Germanophile elem
ent in the country, particularly in the
army, but reports show this element
has been greatly tempered by the thiuK-
ng classes in Spain.
Curtailments of raw materials to that
country, hampering its great manu
factures, also had a contributing in
fluence toward changing public opinion
and enthusiasm over German prowess.
The crudity of German diplomacy,
combined with the Teuton U-boat
activity against Spanish ships, shortago
of food and raw materials, and the
growing strength of the allies in the
west, all tended to win favor for the
aJliea. Recjentiv, reports here show,
even former Ipro-German newspapers
have exclaimed over the great wrk
of the American army and have ceased
to prate of German military prowess.
Spain is understood to have about
2,000,000 men who could be put fully
equipped, into military service.
