JUDGE CAPLES LECTURE.
The lecture at Willamette hall Tues
day night by Hon. John F. Caples, of
Portland, was greeted with a large and
highly appreciative audience. The lec
ture was under the auspices of the
Clackamas County Hnmane Society,
and treated of Mr. Caples' observations,
during his four years official residence
in Valparaiso, Chile. The audience
was delighted and entertained. He told
of the thousand miles of the rich allu
vial soil in the United States oi Colom
bia, here bananas and weeds grew in
rank profusion, uncultivated an atea
that would supply the world with food
products, if properly cultivated. Simi
lar soil conditions existed in some of the
other countries of South America.
The gbvernmentB of South American
countries are republics only in name.
There is no guaranteed security to cm
merce and trade, and it is difficult to
tell whether the insurrectionists or other
people that hold the reins of govern
ment. The Spanish residents of Valpai
riso were noted for their inbred polite
ness. Castes prevail among all classes
of people, persons of like occupations
forming exclusive individual social sets.
Many of the substantial business men of
that country are anxious for the United
States to secure control of the govern
ment bo that conditions would be more
stable. There is opportunity for a
great trade between the Uniied Sta'es
and South America. The scarcity of
timber in these countries will make a
great demand for Pacific coast lumber,
and Oregon timber may yet reach a fab
ulus high price. The speaker's account
of the social conditions, also were en
tertaining. He predicted that these
South American republics will be un
der the dominion of the stars and stripes
in the distant future.
Rev. A. J. Montgomery was master
of ceremonies, and Senator Brownell in
troduced the speaker. The Brownell
campaign quartet, R. O. Woodward, Ed
Fields, E. E. Taylor and W. G. Gil
ftiiip, sung seveial selections, and were
heartily apdlauded. C. A, Miller sung
a well received solo. Mi1 3 Anneita Mc
