A valley is apparently only the beginning of a possible tremendous revival of the dreams of Jim Hill, W. A. Harriman and the old-time empire builders of 30 years ago to reach the untouched resources of Oregon's 'fair places' with railroad steel." McColloch said Jones' proposal "contemplates construction and ownership of the fixed railroad plant by the federal government with operation by one of the connecting lines in each instance, trackage rights to be available under lease to other connecting lines. "The proposed routing apparently would be in harmony with recommendations made by the state of Oregon in petitions to the interstate- commerce commission in 1926 at the time the proposed crossstate railroad was first agitated.. It is proposed to meet the requirements mentioned in the I. C. C. decision in that case to 'restore the relationship of the railroads to the several districts that existed prior to the dissolution of the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific system whereby the traffic from or to . western Oregon would become available for routing across the state.' " After hearings at Burns, Bend and Portland in 1020; the I. C. C. ordered the Union Pacific to build a cross-state line, McColloch said.

French Somaliland, May 12. It is possible for me to give today the uncerisorcd, true account of the Italian occupation of Addis Ababa and of the days that followed. 1 arrived here last night, the first newspaper correspondent to leave war torn, blood stained Ethiopia since the conquest. In a previous dispatch from Addis Ababa, I told how I went out 35 miles to meet the Italian army and accompany it in. Here is the rest of it: I was treated courteously by the Italians, but I was a prisoner because I had arrived from what constituted the enemy lines in effect. While I was with the Italians I was told there were specific reasons for the unhurried advance, in addition to the difficulties of progress and transport. It was informed the Italian high command had knowledge of the pillaging and murder in Addis Ababa but it waited until the legations, except for the well armed and most aloof British legation, had imijored help. Then, I was told, the Italians halted their casual building of roads and bridges and went on to Addis Ababa to find the capital in even a more deplorable condi 1 j j , BIG SERVICE TONIGHT Ministers and Lay Groups From All Oregon Represented With prospects of one of the most important and well attended conventions in the history of the Oregon Baptist churches, ministers, laymen and delegates to the women's state society from all sections of the state gathered here today.

Commander Koehn said that the Legion today stands as an insurance policy of which the American people are the beneficiaries, in that it constitutes a bul wark of protection against destruction of the American government and deprivation of those typically American liberties that were won at such great cost. Koehn denied emphatically that the American Legion has in mind the plea for any more concessions to able bodied World war veterans. The. only pension program in which the Legion will be interested henceforth, he declared, will be continued care of widows and orphans of war veterans, and the only grants to be asked hereafter for the men will be in behalf of disabled veterans.

The Roosevelt administration entered directly into the legislative fight against the inflation-farm mort gage bill, dispatching to house members a statement issued by the farm credit administration attacking the drastic anti-new deal bill as disastrous to the farmers and the nation." .... The statement Immediately pro voked a charge on the house floor by Rep. William Lemke, R., N. D., that the New Deal is "lobbying" against the bill and using "unfair tactics." The unusual appeal for defeat of the bill probably the first time in the memory of congressional observers that the executive branch of the government had deliberately tossed written propaganda into a battle over legislation. It went into the hands of members shortly after the inflation measure, and as house debate began on the bill, with the prospect of a vote on passage late tomorrow. The statement hit the Frazier-Lemke bill as due to give benefit to less than If) per cent of mortgage burdened farmers, hurt the remainder, force inflation and possibly "ruin" the Federal Laixl Hank system.

An indication thai President Roosevelt would accept a compromise on the administration's S803.000.000 tax bill appeared todav as new deal officials defended the theory of the corporate surplus tax before the senate finance committee. Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace, the first witness, warned the committee that unless the new bill revises th" present law the government "may be forced to refund the maior share" of the $963,229,981.67. collected in processing- taxes under the now invalidated AAA. In the face of a mounting revolt in the senate committee against the measure as passed by the house, Chairman Pat Harrison, D., Miss., received word from the White House that President Roosevelt had not fixed his mind upon any set tax formula. Mr. Roosevelt will be satisfied, it was indicated, if the bill retains two essentials. These are: . The fundamental theory of forced distribution of corporate earnings in the form of taxable dividends. The SI, 137. 000.000 revenue yield originally demanded. The word from the White House came as the committee re-opened its hearings for the purpose of hearing high new deal officials on various portions of the bill. First 1o come before the committee. Wallace supported the "windfall' tax on unpaid processing taxes which he characterized as an "unjust enrichment tax." Wallace also asked for revival of modified processing taxes in order In raise the revenue yield of the tax bill. He asserted the modified Irvy would present "only: a very .slight burden on consumers." FARM TEACIIKK DIES Salem, Ore., May 12.

From the Headlines By Deacon Kichmond "Fate of .lark Justice Still Undecided" If Justice gets justice, it's all he should ask, but to say, what is justice, is at limes quite a task; for the -lawyers defending will moke such a plea that the jurors will hardly be able to ice how a man. who has all of the virtues they pa bit. could be anything less than a virtual saint; while the state will heap on him so much of disgrace that he might be inclined to hide his own face. No case is ere tried on its merits, forsooth, with the single desire to arrive at the truth. The State will convict, if it possibly can. and hide all the facts that might aid the man; while the lawyeis. employed to conduct his defense, will talk against facts and reason and sense; the balance of justice they'll willfully lilt, though they feel very sure of their client's full guilt. They say justice is blind, and the reason. I'm told, she drank some oQ'.lie "boot-leg" that Jack Justice sold. F-D NAY 0 K COMPROMISE KNOX SAYS F-D IS REACTIONARY Portland, Ore., May 12. Col. Frank Knox of Chicago brought his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination to the Pacific Northwest last night in on address branding the New Deal "reactionary" because ' It has re verted to the "coercive type" of government prevalent before the American constitution was drawn. If President Roosevelt is reelected, the newspaper publisher warned an audience at Benson Polytechnic auditorium and listeners on a nation-wide radio network the New Deal will renew its "attack" on the authority of the United Stales supreme court, while drawing tighter the chief executive's dominance over congress. Knox advanced three major principles he would apply to government if chosen president: 1. Maintenance unaltered of the fundamental principles of home rule by the state and local governments. 2. Progress and reform within the framework of the constitution "provided that mere activity or change is not confused with progress, and provided that reform is arrtved at by careful, deliberate and competent study. 3. Safeguarding of "the deep conviction that government must remain the servant of the people and not their master," Comparing the Roosevelt administration with a windmill wheel released from its pump, Knox said: "Apparently it is the very symbol of energy, turning to every vagrant bree.e that blows, but until you hitch it up with the pump again not much everyday work is done.

The British put a barbed wire obstruction in the legation grounds 100 yards from the road way in order to avoid a possible incident with the actively anti- British Italians. In Addis Ababa the Italian authorities had great difficulty in suppressing the widespread sniping and pillaging. On one occasion I left the Italian palace and was ambushed in the main street by five Ethiopians. I shot down one and fled up the street to join the Italians, a hundred yards' away. Rioting and sniping continued. I estimate the casualties at not less than 1.000 in all, including at least 10 per cent of mutilations.
