Found 32 Quarts Of Whiskey

Portlaud, Or,, March 19. Captain H.
A. Petorson and all the members of his
crew of 21 went to jail hero today upon
their arrival on the Bchooner Johanna
Poulseu. . .
A heavily aimed squad of police
boarded the vessel when she arrived
from San Francisco, and it is alleged
the officers found 32 quarts of whiskey
as part of the ship's cargo.
While some of the squad of cops
escorted the sailors to jail, the remaind
er of the officers continued the search
for liquor. They found 200 cases of
whiskey on the Johanna when
raided her a year ago, and they think
thev may have overlooked some of the
booze which arrived today.

But Does Not Favor Special
Paragraph To Coyer Ihis
Paris, March 19. Lord Cecil, British
expert on the League of Nations, told
correspondents tho British delegation
considers tho covenant should be a part
of the preliminary peace treaty with
Germany, He said he did not believe
its incorporation would in uny way do
lay presentation of tho treaty.
"If the Monroe doctrine means what
I understand it to mean non-interference
in Amorican affairs by European
without consent of the United States
then the doctrine is strengthened by the
leaguo, since no action couid be taken
under its provisions without America's
consent," lie said.
Asked if insertion of a speciul para
graph to cover this point is possible,
Cecil rcpliod:
"I doubt the advisability of putting
any power in a special position in ref
erence to tho rest of the world."
Discussing Japan's contention for ra
cial equality, he said:
"However much wo sympathize with
the theory of racial equality, wo cannot
insert such a provision m rno covenant
without infringing on the domestic
rights of individual governments."

The big frame building known as the
Farmers' Ware house will be left in
its present location and will be used as
a pulp plant for the general mixing of
the pulp.
Another building will be erected to
be known ns the ''digester" and will
