PORTLAND, Or.. Oct. S. President Taft

had changed from the Mormon tabernacle
at Salt Lake City on Sunday last to the
rornerstone laying of the First Universallst
church In East Portland.
The president handled the silver trowel
and worked hard to see that the stone was
properly adjusted. Ills apparent earnestness
In setting the stone called out great ap
plause from the open air audlenoa.
The president referred to his various
church experiences and In concluding said:
"No church In this country, however

Mr. Taft had a truly religious day, which
began when he attended the morning ser

Portland and listened to a sermon by Rev.
W. O. Eliot, Jr. Following this service the
president we the) guest of honor at a
luncheon by Senator Bourne and which In

In the early afternoon the president

and a made a flva-mlnute address to the
school children. In which he declared that

Tha line of march followed by the presi

as crowded as were the streets on Hunday
and there was hand dapping along the way
with some cheering by the more enthusias

After the president had been Introduced
at the Corner stone laying by Iter. James
Corbv. Dastor of the church, he said:
"I don't know that any one questions
the propriety of my being here and of
ficiating. irucB.atr' occasion as this or
that an explanation of any sort Is called
for. But I want to say that I believe It to
be the duty of the president of these United
States to welcome and to suggest every In
strument by which the morals and religion
of the community may be elevated and
malnta'ned. Not long ago I officiated at
the cornerstone laying of an orthodox Con
gregational church in Waahlngton. Then
I appeared In the pulpit of a Jewish taber
nacle at Pittsburg. But a few days ago I
helped to lay the cornerstone of a Catholic
Institution at Helena, Mont.

"I am glad always to be present at such
occasions as these, for I believe the corner
stone of modem clvlllxatlonmust continue
to be religion and morality."
Experiences la Philippine.
The president told some of his experiences
with the Catholic church In the Philippines
and then said that on the occasion of his
visit to Rome he ventured to say to the
popei that while In American the sentiment
was strong for the separation of church and
state there was nothing In the American
government or American people that op
posed the church or lla highest develop
ment: that in no European country had the
Catholic church flourished aa It had in
America; that In thla country the Catholic
church received from tha government and
state officials only that treatment accorded
.vrv other denomination.
I added," continued the president, "that
this was not to be taken aa an Indication
that every government and state official
was other than anxious to encourage the
establishment and maintenance of churches
and that their Influence might be broadened
throughout the land.
"I think we have reached the time when

Encampment at Fort Omaha Draws a
Multitude of Visitors.
FLATTERING TRIBUTE TO SOLDIER
Varlona Featarea of f.reat Camp
Prove of Immense Interest
Warm Fight on Between
t rack Ball Players.
Fort Omaha was the mecca for thous
ands of sightseers Sunday, when between
15,000 and 20.000 people Journeyed to the
fort to see the 6,224 soldiers in camp. No
dress parades or maneuvers were scheduled,
the only attractions being three ball games
and a band concert.
It was really a rare sight to see the peo
ple flock to the fort. Kvery conceivable
sort of conveyance was put to use, includ
ing shanks mare. The street car service
put extra cars on the Florence line In ad
dition to running three stub car to and
from Fort Omaha, but these were able to
handle but a small proportion of the
enormous crowd attracted by Uncle Sam's
encampment. One-horse shays, carryalls,
private carriages, automobiles, rent cars,
farm wagons and even baby carriages
were used to transport the multitude to
the fort. Besides all these conveyances,
there waa a continuous string of people on
foot the entire length of Fort street" arid
Thirtieth from he Amee avenue car.
Three base ball games were playtd, two
of them being In the tournament which Is
being played off between the soldiers from
the different forts. Fort Omaha, Fort Des
Moines, Fort Crook, Fort Meade, Fort
Riley and Fort Leavenworth have teams en
tered and the rivalry is most Intense. Fort
Omaha was at first picked as the winner,
but fell down In the first game of the
schedule because all Its men had not re
ported. Fort Omaha still has a chance to
win if Fort Leavenworth does not win four
straight games. In case Fort Leavenworth
goes straight through the tournament, a
post-tournament game will be played be
tween Fort Omaha and Fort Leavenworth
for quite a stake, as both forts are sure
they have the best team.
Kanaans Protest Wells.
Fort Omaha won from Fort Riley Sun
day afternoon and the Kansans protested
the game because Wells, a crack twlrler
who haa been sold by the Hignal Corps to
Ducky Holmes, was allowed to pitch.
Lieutenant Ware said, however, that the
matter would be all fixed up. aa he had an
understanding that he Could play both Mc
Gee and Wells. Both were former mem
bers of the team, but have secured their
releases that they may play professional
Some warm games are scheduled for
Monday. At 1:30 Fort Crook meets Fort
Leavenworth and In the morning Fort
Riley will play Fort Des Moines. Tuesday
morning Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth
meet and Tuesday afternoon Fort Crook
and Fort Omaha will play.
The parade grounds were beautiful, being
lined on all sides by banns of people and
all sorts of conveyances. Interest cen

infantry band began Its concert, when
several thousand moved over to that sec
tion of the parade grounds.
AH the soldier camps were open for In
spection and thousands wended their way
through the long rows of tents. The first
group of Interest was the hospital corps,
which is tented near the entrance to the
fort at Thirtieth and Fort streets. Here
an idea was given of how Uncle Sam cares
for his sick and wounded.
The big balloon house was also a renter
of attraction at the post, aa was also the
wireless telegraph station. Thousands of
Omaha people had not viHlted these before

LINCOLN. Oct. 3-(Special Telagram.)
Governor Shallenberger late this evening
made publio a report from Deputy Labor
Commissioner W. M. Mauptn on the street
car strike situation in Omana. He recom
mends that an investigation should be
made of the situation under the statutes.
Mr. Maupln reviews the strike and re
ports that the strikers refused to listen to
a settlement based upon the possible pun
ishment of the men who acted as commit
teemen for the strikers and who conducted
the strike. President Wattles Insisted that
only 80 per cent of the strikers would be
employed and rejected Mr. Maupln' pro
posal that all be taken back and If . the
company had a grievance against any one
on account of his connection with the
strike, the grievance be submitted to arbi
tration before a committee composed of
three men, one from the company, one
from the men and the governor to consti
tute the third. The men agreed., to thla,
but President Wattles would not. Mr.
Maupln report that he then oeased all ef
fort to reconcile the contending parties.
Mr. Maupln asks that an Investigation
be made by the governor under the pro
visions of the statute. If for no other
reason than to make a permanent record.
He says the strikers have at all time been
willing to submit every point to arbitra
tion and return to work.
