OPERA HOUSE BLOCK,
LA GRANDE, OREGON
The Hawaiian delegation introduced
a resolution deprecating tne disap
pearance of the American flag from
the Pacific ocean,", and urging the
government to create a ship subsidy
for the development of shipping inter
ests in the Pacific, It says the Jap
anese captured the trans-Pacific trade
and that' the American government
must meet lta obligation to sustain It
self in competition which has driven
ships bearing the Stars and Stripes
out of business.
Peter Loggle, of North Bend, Ore.,
introduced a resolution calling for the
appointment of a board of engineers
to improve the harbor at Coos Bay
with a view of fortifying the entrance,
and making the harbor a coaling sta
tion for vessels in time of war. A. B.
Wastel, secretary of the Oregon Lum
ber association, sounded the first gun
in the fight to be made by the asso
ciation against the high lumber rate
prevailing on the Pacific, coast, by in
troduction of a resolution calling for
the enactment of a law by congress
giving the interstate commerce com
mission power to suspend and inves
tigate advances in freight rates be
fore they become effective.

Some years ago in 1874, to be exac!
there was u Tuft reunion lu
bridge, to which dcsoeiulauts of tin
original Robert Taft came flockliiL
from all parts of the couulry. One o.
the conspicuous features of the aCTuh
was a historical address by Alpboiux
Taft, father of the preseut Kepubllcai
candidate. He traced the history ol
various brandies of the family, una
wbeu he cuine to the oue to which bl
and his children belonged he said: 1
"Our family have uot embarked much
upon national politics, except that they
have shared In Hie buttles of the coun
try when national , Independence was
to be won, and also when the Union
was at Ntuke. But brilliant political
careen have not beeu characteristic of
the Tafts in tlio past It Is not safe to
say what may be lu store for theiu
There Is u tid lu the affairs of uier
and also of families."
This Is taken from tiie account of
the reunion published at tbe time. Al
phoiiso Tult wnu'd perhaps have been
somewhat duz.li tl If he could have fore
seen how quickly and brilliantly the
family would proceed to "embark upon
national politics." He himself started
the turn of t'.ie tide which he predict
ed. It seems to be reaching Its tloo.l

Tuft (171SI was "a large, good-look
Ing man of ma,'iiauliuous disposltlou."
He hud four sons.
Aaron, the candidate's ancestor, was
also so magnanimous that he lost
nnmey ly iudorslng s friend's notes;
he was a man "of great Intelligence
and Integrity." Aud then, going some
