Upstate Young Democrats were in opcrt revolt today against what they termed an attempted "dictatorship" of the fifth annual convention by W. L. Gosslin, private secretary to Governor Martin. - ' Gosslin, first president of the Young Democratic clubs of Oregon, was defeated late yesterday when he tried to write Into a new constitution a plan to have clubs organized on a separate city instead of county basis. Each club would have been allowed two convention delegates, plus one for each 50 members. Each county now has only two delegates, Gosslin's opponents accused him of trying to assure Portland and Multnomah county of control ot the state organization. Farley Sends Word A close three-way race for the presidency held the convention's attention. C. C. Carlson, Portland, backed by Gosslin, Stanford Brooks, Portland, and Ethan Newman, Eugene, are the candidates. The race appeared to be between Carlson and Brooks, and a tight vote was predicted. North Bend sought the 1937 con-, vention with a slogan "Coast to Coos Bay", and the biggest county delegation 12 members . registered for the meeting. Pendleton,-. La Grande and Astoria were also campaigning for next year's con vention. -; . . : w .. Orders of James A.

Want More Pork Resolutions censuring Governor Martin and other state officials for not giving democrats enough jobs were to be introduced this afternoon. If the resolutions committee should block the reports, certain delegates were said to be ready to denounce the administration openly from the floor. The state liquor contTol commission was to be the target of another resolution, saying that "intolerable conditions" pointed out by Jack E. Allen, Pendleton, wheu he resigned recently as administrator, have not been corrected. Keynote speaker Virgil H. Lang try, Bend, predicted "a greater victory for all democracy this year than was recorded in 1932," (or Ihe past 13 years. BODY OF SEA LION SAID MRS. FINNEGAN : FOUND ON MUDFLAT. South Bend.

Or.e.. April 25. Nattily- attired in n grey prison-made suit. Earl H. Fehl, ex-Jackson county judge today enjoyed his second bit of freedom from the state penitentiary in more than two years. Fehl sat quietly in Ihe court of Circuit Judge L. II. McMuhan with his wife and two attorneys and listened to Ralph K Moody, assistant attorney-general , who prosecuted him nearly three years ago for ballot theft, oppose his unconditional release from prison. Decision Due Few Days Fehl's attorneys told the United Press they would carry their case to the state supreme court, it necessary, to determine the peniten tiary s future parole policy. Judge McMuhan was not expected to hand down a decision for several days. Only 30 persons were in the courtroom as Fehl, looking but little aged by his imprisonment, was brought in by a penitentiary guard. About a year ago, Fehl got out side the prison wulls for the first time to appear m court in Med ford to testify a law suit. Moody contended Fehl must show "evidence of reformation" as well as "good conduct and in dustry" before he could be paroled by the governor. It was feared that Fehl planned 'to stir up trouble again on his re turn to Jackson county that led ofticials there to oppose Ins unconditional release. Fehl last week refused lo accept a conditional parole from Governor Martin. The purolc would have kept Fehl out of Jackson county until Aug. 15. 1937. The ex-judge contended he hud served his time, with deductions for good behavior, and needed no purolc to go free in keeping with a custom (in vogue ft the prison PASS OPENING BY MAY 15 POSSIBLE, DECLARES BALDOCK Salem.

Govern ment officials today revealed the cost of providing relief for the un employed in the past nine months varied from $371 per jobless person in Kentucky to $1,250 per person In Montana." r - ' "The wide range in per capita relief costs was due to various factors, partly distribution of the unemployed and partly difference in type of projects. In Montana, for instance, the largest item was for rivers and harbors flood control. In the District of Columbia the cost of notional administration of relief made is impossible to calculate accurately the per capita cost. Generally the cost per capita rose sharply in slate with few on the list of jobless." In addition, however, the total expended took in costs of the WPA program, the more costly public works program and other relief agencies which required varying federal expenditures as well as varying wage scales. For Instunce, New York with 10 per cent of the nation's jobless showed an average per relief capita cost of $839. Statistics nn the $2,515,082,158 distributed by the treasury up to April 1, disclosed the most pronounced tendency was toward high cost for relief in states where the number of needy is smallest. Ne- vuila's relief cosls per capita were $1,188 while the state has only 5.8114 persons on relief, or one-tenth of one per cent of the total of $3,804.2118 in the nation. Oregon, with a relief population of 31.621 or .5 of one per cent of Ihe nation s relief roll, hud tin av eruge cost of $786. Washington and California, with larger relief rolls, averaged $734 and $707 respectively. Idaho, with 19,585 on relief, nv-craged $1,020.

AUNT HET BY ROBERT QUILLEN WIDELY crease, for example, of 15,233 in the present 40,350 persons now in on dividends The bulk of the new taxpayers would be persons with net incomes of from $1,000 to $10,000 a year. The treasury estimated 81,000 new taxpayers in income category. However, most ol tne csumaiea $658,000,000 in new revenue from individual taxpayers under plan would come from the fairly well-to-do and the wealthy. The nation has an estimated 12,-000,000 stockholders, but at present only 2,700,000 lederal individual taxpayers. Dividends from stock hereafter would be taxed under normal as well as surtax rates.

Praise for the 300 coal and gold miners, many of whom risked their Hives digging in the dangerous Reynolds shaft, continued unabated.
