followed his example. .
So the first man was set down by observers as a social blunderer, and the
second as a man >£nen>. And the reason was simply that while the first
man vacillated from one decision to another the second made up his mind and
stuck to it. < -
Deliberation — the habit of • calmly weighing and measuring values before
you choose, of looking before you leap, is a splendid quality; but indecision—
the habit of unhappily weighing and measuring values after you have chosen,
and of lookng back after you have leaped, and perhaps trying to leap back
againis the sign of a mind diseased.
If you Want to succeed in life you must learn to make up your mind to a
thing and stick to it. He who hesitates is lost, is true in more than one sense.
Once m a while, of course, it is wise and necessary to back water, but for
that once there are a hundred times when we weaken our cause, fail of success
or spoil our chances of happiness by reversing a decision that has once been
"The thing we drivers have to fear most, an automobiiist said to me
the other day, "is these people who start to go ahead and then change their
minds at the last moment. Half the people who get killed gel it just that way.' ,
Again, there was a terrible accident on a railroad crossing the other day
fn which a man and his wife were killed instantly. It was a blind crossing
and the man did not see the train until his machine was on the track- At first
he tried to back the machine, then he changed his mind and tried to get across.
If he had made up his mind quickly to do either thing and stuck to his decision,
he would probably have been alive today. But his mind was weakened by the
disease of vacillation, and he paid the penalty of his weakness in a swift and
terrible way. So, in both the big and little things of life, vacillation is a dan
gerous habit, and the very best moment to fight it is the very first moment you
( eel you are getting into its clutches.

Three Pacific Districts to Be

' vors / Abandonment of
I Alcatraz Prison
Interest is being manifested in the
new scheme of a unit system of ad
ministration which is to be inaugu
rated August Iv in the coast defenses
of San Francisco, Puget sound and
the Columbia, in accordance with or
ders received yesterday at the head
quarters of the Pacific coast district
from Washington, D. C. / '
The system, which lias been carried
out in the coast defenses of New. Lon
don : Conn.,« has .as " Its general scheme
the "administering *by the coast ; de
fenses commander and his staff of "all
the posts in his district, v or, as it is
technically known, ". his f coast defenses.
as- one post. -; "■■'-.■'■■"..' '":".-. :
He ;is v relieved as ■ commanding offi
cer of ; his J own particular post : ; and
the ranking' field officer there takes
charge of all practical '% administration.
:■■ The present ; commanding.; officers at
each of the other posts lose I their iden
tity as post commanders )and \ are occu- :
pied with," the practical administration
of their posts as the representatives
of the cojast: defenses commander. This
will result in abolishing the adminis
trative * staff of the commanding' officer
of each post and all orders will ema
nate from the \. general headquarters.
This will mean, in practical terms,
that Colonel ' Charles V Phillips, com
manding the coast" defenses iof ■ San
Francisco, will administer the affairs
of Forts ; ; Winfield Scott. Barry. ; Miley
and Baker: as those of one post; Colonel
C. J. Bailey yof J the Pugetv sound ; coast
defenses, will have Forts ;"V\'orden,
Flagler.' Casey and Ward amalgamated,
arid Lieutenant Colonel Oscar I. Straub,
who. commands "■ the coast defenses of
the.Columbia. will have Forts Stevens.
Columbia and Canby under' his direct
rule. ; '-•/;. ■" " "' : : : :\ 'I- '''.:',
Doubt is expressed by coast artil
lery officers as 7to ; the direct benefit
of the scheme on this coast, some of
the posts ,'; being rather ; widely sepa
rated. For instance,, in the Puget
sound district. Forts ■ Worden, Flagler
and Casey are within a few miles of
each, but Fort Ward is about 50 miles
away. " '
Under an amendment to regulations
governing the purchase of . discharge by
enlisted men of the army put into force
this year, the cost of getting out of the
service by this means depends upon; the
station of the soldier. For example, at
the end of two years' service a soldier
may buy his.discharge if he is on duty
in the United States for $100, for $150
If he is on duty in the Philippines, for
$120 if he is on duty ,in Hawaii, for $145
if he is on duty in Alaska, and for $130
If he is on duty in the Panama canal
rone/: - ■=. : ,-. , : " ' v 7... IX"*, ■ -r-';i-
This schedule was adopted to include!
in the purchase price the estimated cost
of transporting the soldier to the dif
ferent places. , In •, estimating the price
in the Philippines: the cost of carrying
a soldier ; there on ;an ; army transport
was not taken into consideration, since
the » transports v would be operated in
any , event. Some officers believe that
this new schedule will reduce the num
ber of discharges by purchase, whereas
others believe that the number of dis
i charges by purchase will not be re
i duced.

advocate general of the army, who ar
rived Thursday evening, has come from
Washington for the annual inspection
of the Pacific branch of , the military
prison at Alcatraz and I will remain
here probably until Sunday night, when
he Will leave for the south and a
visit to the Mexican border. He will
go to several points;along the 'border,
but »most of his time ; will be spent in
Texas City, where he will unofficially
Investigate and inspect; the organiza
tion of the troops, returning to Wash
ington about August 1.
He said in ; regard to the rumor that
the prison <is to '- be removed from Al
catraz: "The j plan s has s been epoken of,
but tentatively; so very tentatively, in
fact, that it ■ should hardly be consid
ered 'ac a possibility as yet. No * defi
nite v move has been : made iin that; di
rection and there Is no certainty that
such : a step will be . taken.
"Alcatraz * is, of course, admirably
adapted for a medieval prison, but the
latest developments >in r penology de
mand I that prisoners be ; confined else
where than ;on a ? rockbound island." ": j>
' General Crowder said . that a 'serious
obstacle in the possible removal of the
prison would be the'matter of another
use for the valuable buildings now on
the island. Too much money has; been
expended there for the abandonment of
the prison without further plans for
its occupation. ; '

Romance Involves Plotting
Parents and Recalcitrant
Young Folks
]■-. Scheming cupids celebrated last
Thursday night at the home of Miss
Iva Otto, 629 Dolores street, where
Miss Otto announced to a score of girl
friends her engagement to Gus Eilers.
brother of Hy Eilers, president of the
Eilers Music company.
The announcement of the- engage
ment marks one ,of the epochs of a
romance that lias had much to do "with
plotting parents, recalcitrant
folks, musical atmosphere and love at
second sight. -;■■.
Incidentally the .prospective bride is
an employe of her future ; brother in
law. Tiy Eilers. in San Francisco, while
the ■ bridegroom/ to be is a motion pic
ture niapnate in Vancouver. ■>
The parents of • Miss; Otto and her
fiance have been friends for many
years. r .* .■■ .''.. ,'■ ■'".!. . \ ■••■
, The two young: people were destined
for ? each f other, in the ; parental mind.
15 years ago, although neither;- of the
two had ever seen- the other until a
year ago. •'
; Both the young people were antago
nistic to the idea of a , parent made ro
mance and ;;refused** to v become ac
quainted with each "other. '
VrAv year ; ago they, met. accidentally.
in Portland, where both were spending
vacations. . . .-., ...
Mr. Filers - . opinion was expressed to
his friends In the remark that the girl
his parents had been telling him about
'was , not • even, pretty." .This was a
slander most apparent to all.
/Miss Otto retaliated by explaining- to
her friends that she could never marry
such a "big grouch." which, she will
agree now. also was a slander.
This first meeting was ? unpromising , ,
but /a month later the two met again
and revised their farmer estimates of
each other ,to such >an ; extent that :the
announcement; Thursday evening re
sulted./ :
''{ •Miss Otto lives here with her
mother. 4 - With -her husband she will
make her home In Portland.
' The date for the wedding has not yet
been announced, but it will be in the
fall. , "' ' , ' - ' ■ . ■- . '
;Miss Otto is an accountant in the
Eilers Music house here and was per
suaded by HyEilers to accept that em
ployment so that, as J Eilers himself
expresses it, the elder brother could
press the suit of the younger one ; with
all the authority of "boss. , " ;, ■_•

■ LOS -ANGELES, July 11.—The ques

today :by the conference of ministers
attending the twenty-sixth interna
tional convention of "Christian En

but by r physicians specially appointed
for that purpose.
