A commercial article in today's Port

Portland led all other ports in the Uni

month of January. The Oregon me

The month's shipments, as compiled by
tue government Dureau oi statistics,
show a gain for Portland of over 25 per
cent, as comnared with the same month
last year. Puget Sound Bhows a gain of
12 per cent, and ban trancisco a gain
of less than 10 per cent.- Coming at a
time when rival ports are making so
much fuss over Portland's "declining"
wheat trade, the government figures
make a very pleasing showing.

Kansas in session today at Topeka,
Fusion, decided there would be no
affiliation between the pop

strong faction, led by ex-Congresstnan

the democrats, but there were enough
of the old-time populists to defeat this
plan. The meeting was a lively fight
throughout. Majority and minority re
ports were filed by the committee or.
resolutions, on the subject of fusion.
