Opposition Senaior Says Wil

: Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 18. Senator Hir
am Johnson, following an enthusiastic
reception in Lincoln, planned today to
earry his f ight against the treaty to
the northwest. He leaves tat Duluth to
night. He will speak there Friday night
and at Minneapolis Saturday.
President Wilson in attempting to
" have the United States ratify the league
of nations ' ' assumes to put the world
in a straight jacket wherein there ean
be no movement for betterment, prog
ress or humanity," Johnson declared.
In referring to the president's ad
dress at Omaha, Johnson quoted him as
eaying, in effect:
' ' ' The American people must accept
the foreign document which I present to
.you, without investigation, analysis,
amendment or reservation.'
' ' When did the president of the Unt-
tcd States possess the power to say w.
its people and its congress,; 'you
must t ' " Johnson asked.
"When the league was discussed in
Paris, Great Britain would not unlens
the was given five votes and in this
manner she itmendcd it.
"France would not subscribe until .ho
ws given an offensive and defensive al
liance with the United States and tnub
he amended it.
"Japan declined to sign unless give
Shantung with its 38,000,000 Chinese.
The president yielded and thus Japan
amended the league. ,. i
"Just one country is denied the privi
lege by Mr. Wilson of protecting itself,
its treasure, its blood, its future, and
tnat country is the United States.

Polk county fair which will be held in
this city on the 9th, 10th. and 11th of
next month promises to be, a record
breaking show if the plans outlined by
the directors carry.
. At a recent meeting of the fair board
that body Signed up a contract with the
Brown Amusement company of Califor
nia for a three days stand here during
fair week. This is the first appearance
of this company in this city and they
; bring a varied sort of ' amusement for
both young and old. The company also
has the, right for all concessions. The
' " piice paid the" amusement; cflrnpahy for
their attractions during the fair is some
thing like 2000. ;
Josiah Will, secretary of the - fair
board, has been steadily at work for the
past three months gathering in grains
' and grasses for display both at the state
and county fairs and his collection is by
far the best ever shown here.
A lively contest among the prune
gTqwers is expected to take place as a
valuable silver cup for the best box of
prunes is being offered by a Portland
firm. The- fair board is also offering
. prizes of $10 and $5 for first and second
To Extent Of Thousands
. Of Dollars Near Dallas
(Capital Journal Special Service.)
Dallas, Or., Sept.' 18. The rains "of
the past week ' have damaged several
thousand dollars worth of grain in this
vicinity both wheat and oats. In one
big field one mile south of this city, a
bumper" wheat crop, the best raised on
the ground which contains some 60 acres
Ib practically ruined, the wheat having
sprouted in the shock and in other in
stances having turned black.
The inability of farmers to get thresh
ers has been the cause of much spoilage
of their grains and the threshers in
turn have been unable to secure enough
harvest hands to run their machines as
they should be operated. Several throsh
ermen are read yio begin operations
this week but are unable to gee help to
run their machines, as labor is fce;irce
owing t'o the prune laid hop harvest coin
ing on at practically the same timo.
Several Polk county farmers rouizing
the inability to secure their grain thresh
ed .early in the , season stacked their
grain after the manner -followed by east
ern farmers and so far have suffetoo
no loss from the , wet ; weather. . In a
number of instances wheat and oats that
had been threshed were still in the field
and the damage done to this grain will
also amount to several thousands of dol

Angeles,-Salt Lake, Portland.
Home runs: Brooks, MouscI, JJorton,
Tigers; Johnson, Mulligan, Bees. '
May it not be said that the Oaks won,
9 to 5? Yes. The Tippers evidently
have lost their "yip" and much gen
eral comment is being passed on their
ability to loaf.
The Seals were "lingering in the
past" in the sixth inning when the An
gels cornered five runs and clinched the
ball game; 8 to 4.
There seemed to be a "moral com
pulsion" to make circuit clouts in the
Bee-Tiger game, five..home runs being
annexed. Tlvp Bees won 14 to 7.
Disregarding the "rights of con
quered peoples," the Beavers won from
