PORTER 455 Court Street N Members of Legislature Con sidering District Attorney's Recall San Francisco, April 24. A direct re quest that Attorney General U. S. Webb confess error by the state and ask the state supreme; court to order a new trial for Thomas J. Mooney, preparedness parade bomb defendant, was drafted to day by Superior Judge Franklin Grif fin, who presided at Mooney's trial. This action followed the refusal of District Attorney Charles Fiekert to join in such action until after the coun ty grand jury had completed an in vestigation of charges that the evi dence aguinst Mooney was "framed." Meanwhile Police Judge Brady today insisted on his right to hear evidence in the case of F. C Oxuain, charged with "framing" evidence for the state against Mooney and over the objections of the district attorney and (imam's counsel declined to hold Oxnam to ans wer to the superior court without a hearing. He announced that his hearing would be resumed this afternoon. Another sensational development in tue maze or events surrounding the case today was the issuance of a statement by lickcrt addressed "to the public." tic denounced Mooney in unmeasured terms and recited 111 detail the prepared ness parade crime and the events lead ing up to and causing Mooney's arrest, Fremont Older, editor of tho San Fran Cisco Bulletin was also denounced hot ly and Fiekert asserted that even with out, the testimony of Oxnam, star wit ness for the state, the proof of Moon ey's guilt was overwhelming. In a sentence devoted to "the char acters of Mooney and Billings, Fiekert quoted irom alleged writings of Moon ev asserting that he had called the Am erican fuag "a striped rag" and the liberty bell "junk," had lauded "di rect action" and tho rule of tho mob end had deuouueed religion and tho church. Following issuance of this statement came reports from Sacramento that cer tain members of the legislature were discutsing the posisbility of the recall i'i xicnert. Attorney General Webb was silent to day regarding his plans in the present situation except to sav that it would bo several days before he would decide whether to appoint a special prosecutor m iue mooney and uxnam cases.

The Portland lodges have fre quently conferred the master Mason degree in sister lodges in the smaller towns, but this is the first opportunity the Portland Masons will have to see the work exemplified by a valley lodge.

(1'nited Press staff correspondent.) Washington, April 24. Opponents of conscription in any form held sway dur ing today's debate in both houses on the administration's army measure. Speaker Clark announced himnelf aa entirely opposed to conscription. In the senate, Thomas, democrat, Colorado, arguing tor trial first of a volunteer system, said that if eongerip tionists were sincere they would advo cate not only emulation of England ' example in this respect, but also would demand emulation of England's exam ple in government control of railroads and waterway transportation systems. Advanced as an argument for trial of the volunteer system before resorting to the draft, Thomas read Roosevelt ' offer to raise and lead a volunteer di vision to the trenches. He termed Roosevelt's offer as "a great, worthy, patriotic" offer. Senator Gallinger called attention to the reported refusal of Roosevelt's of fer. "Has that offer been entertained t" he asked Thomas. "As far as I know no offer to rnine volunteers has been entertained," Thomas answered. Pulling Its TeetH. "It is my understanding that it was refused," Gallinger retorted. "Such offers as this ought to be heed ed before we resort to conscription," declared Senator Thomas. Thomas attacked vigorously tho "se lective element" of the bill as creating a class of slackers and he assailed ex emption classes as framed on the ground of "their inequality." "The very class slackers this bill is designed to reach are exempted under the provisions. For instance, there is nothing to compel a man exempted be cause engaged in agricultural pursuits, to continue in that occupation," he said. Senator LaFollette offered an amend ment to the army bill proposing to open up wide latitude in exemptions. "Conscriptions objections" to the war the largest of the proposed exemp tions. That snuch exemption would op en doors for "slackers" and weaken the bill, was the retort of advocates of the conscript measure. Plenty of Exemptions. Other exemptions for "exceptional financial or business obligations or do mestic position," would be allowed un der LaFollette 's change. College students and Btudcnts in training for any line of work and per sons engaged in work expedient to the national interest would be exempted- LaFellette proposed to establish lot'al tribunals in each congressional district, composed to men appointed by the presi dent, to henr exemption pleas. They would be authorized to grant certifica tions of exemption. In the house Representotive Anth ony, Kansas, charged that munitions makers arc behind the propaganda to force selective draft in tho army. He said he would not be surprised to learn that members of tlie American Defense society, New York, Who sent telegram to his district urging conscription, were stockholders in munitions plants. He did not explain his reasons. Passage of a straight conscription bill will "rob the homes of . the country," of youths "undeveloped physically and mentally" many of them with not spirit to fight," Representative Fields of the military committee declared. "We need the best fighting force we can get," Fields said. "Under a straight conscription system we shall get an army of youths, two-sevenths o'i them under 21 years old." Clark is Bitter. Washington, April 24. Speaker Champ Clark is bitterly opposed to a conscription army system as againsl the volunteer method. Ho told a delegation from the Nation al Security League today that ho would never vote for conscription. The dele gation presented Clark with a petition bearing one million names of persons who think the volunteer system wrong. The members asked Clark "as head of the popular branch of the national leg islature," to vote for a straight con scription system- - "I'd never vote for such a plan," de-1 clared Clark with heat. "Such a bill I never will paBfl. The war department ' ig trying to bulldoze the country into j approving conscription. The best arm ies we ever hud were volunteer arm- ies. ' i "I do not want to see my son con-1 scripted. I favor letting the flower and i youth of the country volunteer before fastening the disgrace of conscription I upon them." Representative Kahn, ranking repub lican member of the house military com mittee and the man the administration' is having to rely upon to put its bill I through, introduced the delegation to Clark.

There has been, considerable discussion of this since it has become Salem's official flower. Accordingly, the dictionary has been i-iMisuiieu wiui ine lonowing results: Webster and Oxford give first place to the pronounciation gla-dj-o-lus with the accent on the "di" and the "i" long, and gives second place to the pronoun ciation glnd-i-o-lus with the accent on tho "0" and the "o" long.
