MEMORIAL MOVEMENT
i'nder the management and direction
of Mr Fred Harrison, a campaign is
in progress locally aimed at securing
contributions to the Theodore Roose
velt Memorial Fund, which will be
devoted to establishing a fitting me
morial to that great American Theo
dore Roosevelt, The sum sought for
this commendable purpose is $5,000,000
with which it is proposed to erect a
memorial building at Washington. D,
C. and also establish a national me
morial park at Oyster Ray. L. 1. In
the event of the full sum being se
cured, it is also planned to use a por
tion of the fund for the endowment
of a university for the teaching of
Americanism.
The movement in this direction was
started shortly after Col Roosevelt’s
death and resulted in the establishment
of what is known as the “Roosevelt
'Memorial Association*” Mith forme*
President Wm Howard Taft and fram
er Supreme Court Justice Chas K.
Hughes as Honorary Presidents and
Henry Cabot l^odge, Jno Mitchell, Hi
ram W Johnson, John T King as Hon
orary Vice Presidents. Wm Boyact;
Thompson is the active head of the
association and Wm Loeb jr vice presi
dent. Albert H Wiggins is Treasurer
and Harry M Blair. Secretary.
Closely following the announcement
of the proposal to raise a fund to
establish a memorial expressive of the
regard in which Col Roosevelt was
held by the American people, the
movement speedily assumed a national
aspect and culminated in the organ
isation of the Memorial Association
and a decision to conduct a National
campaign between October 20 and 27
to raise the required funds through
"free will”, or voluntary offerings.
Owing to the departure of Mr O. J.
Lomen, who previously had charge of
the local campaign, the movement fell
Into obeyance here until the appoint
ment of Mr Harrison to the chairman -
thfp on November 10th. As the cam
paign in the States was over by that
date the local campaign period was
extended until November 15 in order
to give the dtlsens of Nome full op
portunity to help in the movement and

I. W. W. FLOCKING TO WESTERN
WtSNINGTON TOWNS; RELIEVED
RADICALS PUNNING DESTRUCTION
KKATTLK. Nov. 15—I. W. VV. are Hocking by hundreds into the
towns and cities of Western Was! mgton in evident expectation of creating
further disturbanees.
Reports from cvcr> section <>, the logging' districts indicate that i
general exodus of I. W. \V. from the Western Washington logging camps!
toward the nearest cities has been in progress since the recent shooting at
Throughout the logging districts, tin loggers of I. W. W. inclinations j
ore leaving their jobs in increasing numbers daily. Whether or not the |
movement is in accordance with a previously conceived plan is not deter- I
mined. It is believed, however, that the exodus from the camps is the prelude
to further disturbances and the authorities of practically every town in tie
logging district are taking precautions.
In a numlx-r of instances tin- ixnUus has led to the establishment of
a form'of co-operation between the ollicials of the various logging camps and
the police departments of the various towns, with the result that the depots
and roads leading into a majority of the towns h, the western part of the
state are under police surveillance. I'nder the surveillance system udopted
by the towns, the I. W. W. will not be permitted to stop. Owing
to the prospect that a great number will conic to Seattle, the police depart
ment is being increased by the employment of numerous additional policemen.
The belief is held in many <iunrtcrs that the I. W. W. are secretly
planning to start serious trouble.
Spokane Guardsmen Mobilized to Meet Expected I. W W. Invasion
SViFicant:. TTVi-r. j..- -r*»„ ioc.il Nr;tVionai Guard forces are being
mobilized tlds evening and the members of the American Legion post, all of
whom are war veterans, are being sworn in as special policemen this evening
t-s a precaution against a prospective invasion of thousands of Industrial
Workers of the World, who are said in reports arriving here from numerous
points, to be in progress in this direction from many parts of the Northwest
Reports reaching the ollicials of the American legion say the 1. \V. W.
are leaving their employment in the logging camps in hundreds with the ap
parent intention of creating trouble. The exodus from the logging camps is
said to have commenced immediately after the Central in. massacre.
It is the almost universal view here that the I. W. W. are planning
serious mischief and every precaution is being taken to prevent them from
inaugurating a campaign of terrorization and destruction of property.
Coining on the heels of the reports concerning the logging camp
strikes, the American Legion headquarters here received this afternoon i
typewritten letter which closed with the signature:
"Industrial YVtorkers of the World Managing Secretary.”
and threatens the lives of nine (dtlcers and members of the local prst of th
Legion. The letter names each of the nine members, and displays a deeply
venomous spirit toward the American Legion and all soldiers.
“We have them marked all over the country," the letter declares in
referring to the Legion. “We got the Centralia hunch and the following
men will get theirs too unless you instruct them to lay off.”
The reported invasion is causing serious apprehension throughout the
state owing to the fear that the I W. W. may commence a campaign of
terrorism by wholesale destruction of property. Roth city, county and
state officials are preparing to undertake drastic measures if the radicals
display an inclination in this direction. The city officials announced today
that preparations are being made to arrest all who arrive here who are unable
to give a satisfactory explanation of their presence.
BOLSHEVIK! AGENTS

WASHINGTON, Nov. 15—Government agents have discovered that
large numbers of Holsheviki agents from Soviet Russia are coming into the
United States by way of Mexico, according to statement by secret service
officials today.
The secret service has learned that many of the alleged Holsheviki,
representatives have crossed the Mexican border within recent weeks. Owing
to their inability to enter the United States through the customary channels,

they make their way over the border. Evidences of the secret passing of a'
considerable number of .Russians over the boundary have been secured by the
secret service. In several instances it has been discovered that the surrep
titious arrivals are hero for the purpose of spreading Holsheviki propaganda.

the fact that the campaign period oc
curred at an unfortunate time owing
to the departure of tin list boat in

As far as can he ascertained at
present the local drive h:i£ yielded
subscriptions amounting to about $300,
This is considerably more than was
realized du/ring the Christmas Roll
Call period last year. The amount
collected for subscription at that time
was $I9S, making the gain for this
year approximately $-’00
Mr Miller says credit for the splen
did success of the drive here Is due
almost entirely to the excellent work
of the ladies committee, the members
of which canvassed the city during
the past week.
The committor, composed of the
