S3rot-U0BNrNQ- QBEGOKIAN, raUBSDA, - JULY' v-12, --1950. . ff ALL IS OPTIMISTIC First. Day Theme at Gladstone Chautauqua Assembly. WTCMISE OF SUCCESSFUL SEASON President Ha-urley Opening Address Response by Prof. Horaer-Con ffressman Landls Lecture. t.GLApSTONB PARK, July 1L-A1-Tf u he -weather conditions -were not altogether favorable this morning the seventh annual assembly of the Willam ette .Valley Chautauqua Assembly opened auspiciously this forenoon. The interest expressed by the auditors was an indi cation that the Chautauqua, idea is get ting a strong hold on the people. The event of the day was Congressman Charles B. Landis' lecture In the even ing. At the afternoon session an ex cellent musical programme was present ed. Professor C. E. Kemp, of Chicago, made a decided hit in his readings. While the attendance today was not equal to that of the first -day last year, the man agement is hopeful that succeeding days will more than moke up the deficiency. Campers have been arriving all day, and new tents are going up in every direc tion. The game of Daseba.il. in which the Oregon Citys beat the Canbys at tracted a large crowd this afternoon. At 10:30 President W. C. Hawley called the assembly to order, after a selection by the Chemawa Indian Band. Rev. A. Blackburn, of Portland, give the invo cation. In his address of welcome Presi dent HawJey called attention to the spe cial features and outlook for the seventh annual assembly. He also spoke of the varied feast of wisdom and recreation to be presented. Ievotional services WOUld begin at 7 O'clock in th mnrnlnr classes at 8; there would be divers en tertainments, games on the athletic field, music, song, oratory and serious study. The speaker said "that many a patriotic voice had heen heard in this neatly dec orated auditorium. The groves in this Chautauqua Park, yet to be made classic, are for tout use and pleasure. We also have a lake that is to be made famous." He &sllecl attention to the fact that there was every opportunity here to pass away the time Jn reading, recreation or in the acquirement of knowledge. This one and the Chautauqua Assembly at Ashland have done a noble work. The auditors were told that they could enjoy them selves as suited their convenience. The classes were free, except In some special lines. f The very best talent obtainable had been secured in every line. If one be came tired of listening to scientific lec tures, he could find recreation readlm In . the shady groves, or in a social way, find pleasure in the games on the athletic grounds or enjoy the musical entertain ments. All these things tended to intel lectual improvement. Professor J. B. Homer, of the State Agricultural College, of Corvallls, re sponded to President Hawleys address of welcome, in pirt as follows: "We have taken a brief respite from the year's toils and cares, to meet again and renew acquaintances, enjoy delightful en tertainments and drink in the culture that comes along with such occasions and ex ercises. And we have come with the as surance that the season will be profitably spent. Experience has taught this. The Chautauqua brings together a class of people, different from any others that wo meetr so the only way to commingle with this kind of people is to come to the Chautauqua. There are many good people who, for want of more knowledge of the Chautauqua, do not realize what tney are missing every year. .Butthe' Chautauqua idea, is growing, and the Chautauqua is" coming, to be one of the great institutions. Like the college, the university and the public school, it has come to stay. It means everything to us, because it stands for that which is good and noble. The world Is lovelier day by day for such influences as the Willamette "Valley Chautauqua Association, and It makes me glad that my adopted state, the state where my children were born and will probably spend their lives, ex hibits already more enterprise in promot ing and .supporting such Institutions as this than has any other state on the Pacific Coast, for I feel that if this con tinues, by and by Oregon will be a little aristocracy of physical health, strong in tellect andtmoral worth, the only endur ing aristocracy, ancient or modern, known to man. Furthermore, we need this par ticular kind of Influence at the present time. We live In an age of electricity, when everything is done with the speed of lightning, and since man has employed the forces of nature to do his menial labor for him, thinking is about tthe only thing that is left for him to do. The Chautauqua Is fitting people for these conditions. These benefactors who have sacrificed so much time and energy may not live to receive their reward nor to witness the results of their labor, hut away down the decades, when memora bilia of Oregon will be written, there will appear many a noble deed that grew out of what was said and done years before at the Willamette Valley Chautau qua Association. Therefore, Mr. Presi dent, in behalf of these vistors and oth ers who are soon to join us, I desire to express a hearty appreciation of the cor dial invitation extended, and this is with the belief that your suggestions will find a responsive note in the hearts of all this good people." The class Instructors were Introduced, and made their announcements as fol lows: Physical culture, A. M. Grilley; music. Professor W. H. Boyer: elocution. Professor C. E. Kemp, of Chicago; art, Miss S. J. Evans, of Chicago; American history, President W. C. Hawley; Anglo Saxon. Professor I. M. Glen, of the State University. Eugene; botany. Professor Albert A.

U. in stitute, Mrs. Helen Harford; Bible study. Dr. Blackburn, of Portland, junior Bible study. Miss Frances Cornelius, of Salem: psychology. Dr. H. W. Kellogg, of Port land. Class Instruction is all free except private lessons in art and elocution. The programme this afternoon consist ed of readings by Professor E. C. Kemp, Instructor in elocution, whom Professor Glen said was the ablest elocutionist that had ever been on the Coast "that he was in a class alone." The readings were in terspersed with a musical programme, consisting of a piano solo by Miss Pearl Smith, duet by Professor Boyer and Miss May Dearborn, and a duet by Miss Dear born and Mrs. Bushong. The round table at 5 o'clock was pre sided over by Mrs. WllllAm Galloway, and reports were heard from various circles of the Chautauqua reading circle. Miss Mae Case entertained the gathering with soveral solos. At the baseball game this afternoon the Oregon City team defeated Canby by a score of 35 to 24. The Columbian, of Port land, will "play the Chemawas tomorrow afternoon. Tonight Congressman Charles B. Lan dls. of Indiana, gave his famous lecture. "An Optimist's Message." and was greetV ed by a large crowd. He stated that he had come to give the bright side of the picture; that he never talked about the disagreeable things of life unless he was compelled to. He told of his old college president's farewell words when his class graduated nearly 20 years ago. "It is a good old world, young man; It Is a good old world." "Those were his words," said Mr. Lan dls, "'and they are hopeful words true words. It is a good old world here, and a better old world to those who live in this range of country in the States of the Union, with its rich hills and fertile valleys,. Its home and schoolhouses and churches; all crowned with law and order and' security to life and property. We have -the best of this good old world." Mr. Landls paid his respects to the pes simist, .and said he was a thorn in .the pathway of any man who wSa .inclined to look on the bright side of life. In business he always suspected you. In politics ho. always distrusted you, and in religion he always harassed you put to the severest test your religious belief. The pessimist never congratulated a min ister on his sermon, never paid his church subscription without a growl, and was never In favor of purchasing a. pipe organ. We talk about the religion we may have some time when the pessi mist dies. We will never try to have one while he lives, for he is a sneerer and snarler, and if we could have a record of the communities he has kent In tur moil, of the homes he has darkened, and the boys and girls he. has driven to des peration, we would have -the longest and darkest volume since the Hood. Mr. Landls then took ud the church. the state and active, practical politics. iiuu eiioweu now we naa oegun growtn and development as tended to delight and cheer the roan and woman who looked up rather than down, who preferred a star In the sky to the dull radiance of a piece of punk, and who would rather listen to an anthem than a dirge. The speaker stated that the standard of mor als in politics had been so elevated in the last half century as seriously to re flect on the old age by contrast. He had been a member of Congress for four years, and had never seen but one mem ber under the Influence of liquor. Fifty years ago gambling and drunkenness wore Inseparable from public life. Re ports to the contrary notwithstanding, the great majority of the members of Congress are poor men. The last ses sion of Congress expended nearly $1,000, 000.000, and yet no man ever questioned the Integrity of a Representative. Surely this is a healthy sign to cheer the heart of the optimist Mr. Landls said there was more sympathy and charity, more love, more happiness and prosperity in the world than ever before. The world was better because the mind was better. The mind -was better because the thought was better, and a good mind and a good thought make a good heart, and a good heart makes a good citizen, and good citizens make a good country a country for an optimist. He spoke of the effect of the Spanish War in wiping 'out sectional malice and hate, and closed "by describing the 'burial of 340 American soldiers who had died or been killed in Porto Rico and Cuba, and who one year ago were brought home and placed in beautiful Arlington ceme tery, laid away by the Nation for whose honor and glory they had died.1 Missis sippi's sons were laid by the side of In diana's boys. Maine and Texas, South Carolina and Oregon mourned over ground that held the sacred dust of those who died in a common cause, and in those graves, burled forever, went the hate and misunderstanding of a third of a century ago. With the past differences buried, with a great people united, with honor and Integrity enthroned in busl- ness, in the home and in the high places of government there was cheer, at the threshold of the century, for the heart of tho optimist. Following' is the complete programme for tomorrow: 8 to 11 Schools and classes. 11 State Agricultural College morning. Lecture. "Greater Lights of Oregon Lit erature." Professor J. B.

The eighth an nual assembly of the Southern Oregon Chautauqua Assembly .opened here last evening, and gives promise- of being the most successful session 'in the history of the institution. There are -a greater number of campers in the grove, and & larger number of visitors In attendance than at any previous assembly. The session will continue until the list, and the -next few days will witness even a larger number of people here. Dr. Thomas McClary, of Minneapolis, had an audience that taxed the seating and standtng capacity of the tabernacle to hear him last night in his "Mission of Mirth," and a like audience this after-r noon for his "Scotland," and tonight, when he delivered a new lecture on "The American Home." Unusual interest attaches to tho first appearance here Friday night of Con gressman Charles B. Landls, of Indiana, who will lecture on "Grant." Mrs. Wilberforce B. Whlteman, of Den ver, will give a recital tomorrow after noon and in the evening. The various schools of instruction, which have been provided with competent teachers, are enjoying a 'success, as are the entertains ments and lectures in the tabernacle. A NEW CLACKAMAS 'HATCHERY. To Be Four Miles Beloir the Present Station and Near Railroad. OREGON CITY, July IL Today Super intendent E. N. Carter, of the Clackamas hatchery, leased 2 acres of ground from Deputy County Recorder B. P. Dedman, for a new hatchery site. The new loca tion is four miles down the river from the present site, near the railroad, and about one mile from Clackamas .Station. The new location has some strong springs of pure water, which can he conveyed to the proposed new hatchery buildings by a gravity system to supply a system of rearing troughs that will he operated, on an extensive scale. The main building to be erected will be 42x80, and the Inten tion is to equip it with the latest im proved apparatus. It Ib the announced intention to make a specialty of import ing the egg& of different varieties of fish from the East, which will be hatched and distributed to various sections. In fact, the new Clackamas "hatchery Is to be operated extensively as a distributing sta tion. It will have the advantage of being conveniently situated in the way of trans portation facilities, and will be supplied with plenty of spring water. Work will begin at once on the new main building. B. C. FISHERMEN'S STRIKE. Japanese Accept Price .Offered, hnt White Men Do Not. VANCOUVER, B. C. July 1L No set tlement of the Fraser River fishing- trou bles Is found yet The canners refuse to pay more than 20 cents per fish, which price the Japanese are willing to accept, while the white fishermen decline to work for less than 25 cents. Forty special con stables left for Stevcston tiis evening to protect those who wish to fish. Chief Lis ter, of the provincial police, will swear In as many extra men as he considers necessary. They will be placed aboard the cannery tugs, and will patrol the fish ing water on and adjacent to the Fraser. The canneryroen expect that a large num ber of boats will put out for the fishing grounds tomorrow. At least 75 per cent of the strikers will abandon the idea of a 25 per cent rate for each fish caught The canners say there is no possibility at all of their raising the price to 25 cents. They would close up rather than pay more than 20 cents. BAKER CITY'S WATER SYSTEM. Details All 'Arranced and Work to Commence at Once t BAKER CITY, Or..

Caroline Islanders Attempted to. Kill a Shiptrrecked Creiv. FALALU, Caroline Islands, March 23. On the 21st Inst, the inhabitants of Falalu were aroused by a savage attack, of the natives upon a shipwrecked crew. The sailors,' who were English subjects, were seeking shelter when they were fired on and would have been slain had It not been for the timely arrival of an Amer ican cattle-dealer. Wltn his three em ployes, who were Filipinos, the Ameri can managed to rescue John Stevenson and James Smith, who had been seriously wounded by the natives. Tho other three of the crew had fled, leaving the wounded to care for themselves. The latter were looked after by the American, who, although wounded him self, conveyed them to a place ot safety. He refused to give any information as to his Identity, but It was learned later that he was Edward 8t, Supery. a Callfornlan, who left Guam to purchase some cattle among these Islands. The natives of this place have long been known as savages. They are continually at war with them selves., ' . THREE CARGO SHIPS DDE. Deccan and Pentheslleo. Mnlcinc , Long; Passages. The British ship Deccan Is making a long passage from Hamburg for this port. She is out 149 days today, and while there are plenty of longer passages recorded, she will be slightly overdue unless she shows up within the next 10 days. The British ship Penthesllea which Is coming to Portland with a general cargo from London by way of San Diego, Is making a longer passage than the Deccan, for she has not yet reported at the California port, and Is out the same numher of days as the Deccan. As both of these vessels are making long "pass ages, the Riversdale which left Ham burg nearly three weeks later, will be very close to them, and we are in a fair way to have three European cargo ships discharging here at the same time. THE GRAIN FLEET. Two Ships Finish Loading; and An other Arrives. The British barks Lizzie Bell and Fife shire both finished loading yesterday, and the French bark Marechal Vllllers will finish tomorrow. The German ship Rickmer RIckmers will commence loading tHIs morning, and will follow the rest of the fieet early next week. The British ship Franklstan, after a long passage of nearly 00 days from Nagasaki, arrived In at Astoria yesterday afternoon, and will be brought up to Portland at once. She has made such a long trip across the Pa cific that she may not finish in time to clear this month, As there will be six July cargoes without her, she can be spared for August loading, and still leave the first month of thenew season with a much larger fleet than we usually have. -1 BRITISH CRUISER ASHORE.

The magnitude of the enterprise known as the Oregon Marble & Lime Works, which Is located almost nt tha th, hold of the city of Huntington, but five mnes distant at camp called Lime, i3 greater than Is generally known. Ther Is a postofllce. telephone lino nmi ?. works located here. The Oregon Marble 0 tiime worKs nave a three-story build ing containing all modern machinery uuupiea 10 use in tne reduction of tho rock. It has a new aerial tramwdr -tr-nm the works to the mountain from which the company gets Its product. The en tire mountain is .of the highest quality 01 iime ana cement rock, and furnishes an inexhaustible supply. The tramway forms a circuit of one-haff mil rionhi or one-quarter mile long. The company wonts nignt ana aay snirts and Is run ning at run capacity, having orders for more than they are able to supply. They ship over 20 cars each week. They turn out the very best aualitv of lime nni make 10 different kinds of cement, whilo their plaster Is asknowledged by all who have tested It to be unexcelled. Fifty thousand barrels yearly Is what their capacity represents, and they have al ways produced this amount for four years. The Oregon Plaster Milling Company is the name of the other concern, and the mill adjoins tho other works and la owned by the same company. This mill has a capacity of 50 tons per day of plas ter and cement. The two works are un der the supervision of Joseph Thomllnson, who Is a thorough master of the business and to whom much of the credit for tho success of the venture Is due. The company has gypsum mines five miles distant from the works, and there Is a whole mountain of this substance, which is a valuable Item to them. This enterprise is quite Important to Huntington and Baker County, Inas much as It represents a nice little pay roll, and everything connected with tho handling of Its product is manufactured right at the mills even the casks for shipping are made here. The writer ac cepted the courtesy of a ride to the works with Mr. P. H. Flynn one day this week, and we made a personal InsDection of th entire works, and we must express our surprise at the vast amount of business which is going on so near to our little city without previous mention. It is tho greatest enterprise of Its kind In tha Northwest. Why the South Is Democratic. Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser. The one reason why the South, must oppose the Republican party Is more Im portant than the dozen which are held to favor It. Tho Advertiser has opposed Mr. Bryan, but the Advertiser is for the South. It has opposed the silver policy of the Democratic platform, but between an obsolete Democratic policy on tho cur rency question, which nobody can now enforce, and a Republican policy on the suffrage question which the South-haters of that party will enforce If they can, we know well how to choose. The past four years have brought their changes. Sliver, from being an Imminent and tangible peril, has becomo but a windy threat. Mr. Bryan, on the problems of finance,"' may continue ,an inept contention. But Republican supremacy may bring "the step from Ineptitude to Iniquity," and as between an ineptitude, which is Impotent, and an iniquity, which Is formidable, the Advertiser must stand for the candidate of the Democracy.
