THE FOURTH AS.H'AL ASSEJIULV.
Gladntone 1'urk Klllfd With t Happy
Throat; of People on Education
and I'leaaare Beut.
Tuesday morning, July 13, the fourth
annual asaemhly of the Willamette
Valley Chautauqua amietnbly was opened
at Gladatone Park. The weather was all
that could be desired and the outlook
was very aunpiclous for the most suc
ceaaful aasembly yet held by the associ
ation. The grounds had been put in
splendid ahape, the water service had
been made perfect, while the many
elecUic lights gave to the beautiful grove
a moet enchanting appearance at night.
Every officer was on hand and the work
of the association was taken up with
scarcely any delay or confusion.
The program opened at 11 o'clock, a.
' m. with music by the Chemawa Indian
1 band. An addrens of welcome by the
I president, Col. R. A. Miller, extending
a hearty welcome to his iellow Chautau
Iquans followed. Tiie address was re
! aponded to by W. C. Hawley, president
of Willamette university, after which
the several professors who are to have
charge of the different departments,
made their appointments.
After dinner the program opened with
a selection by the Chemawa Indiau
band. Edward Page Gaston, of Chicago
was then introduced and delivered his
interesting lecture on "Mexico." He
told of the existing conditions of cur
rency in Mexico, saying that a dollar of
American money was worth two Mexi
can ones, that the wages of the working
class was from 25 to to 50 cents a day, but
that about six cents per day was all that
was required to feed a Mexican laborer.
lie told of the non-progressiveness of
the Mexicans, of their conservativeness,
and adherance to old Mexican customs
He closed with an account of his climb
to the summit of Popocatepetl.
At 4 o'clock, a game of base-ball be
tween the Obkmawa" Indian boys and a
team which was made up from players
who could be picked up on the grounds,
was played, the score resulted 13 to 8, in
favor of the Chemawa boys

at the round table under the direction of
Dean Van Scoy, of Portland university.

The evening's program had the one
defect of being too long. The music
was, however, all of a high grade char
acter, and the management is te be con
gratulated upon the success of the first
On Wednesday morning after the
class work, Chaplain C. C. Bateman of
the United States army, delivered a
lecture on the subject, "The Soldier a
Factor in Civilization." Dr. Bateman,
in a brief introductory, told some short
stories of garrison life which were highly
amusing. During his address, he spoke
of the popular impression that a vast
number of Indians have been killed in
conflict with the whites. On the con
trary not more than 6,000 Indians have
perished at the hands of the white man,
while many more atrocities have been
committed on the part of the Indian, and
while he has lifted more scalps than we,
yet we have been more expert in knock
ing hira down with a bottle. At no previ
ous period in tho history of nations, has
there been so large standing armies, and
so many threatening warships and na
tions are continuing to arm themselves.
He spoke of the prospects of a universal
peace which ahould tierahl the dawn of
the millnniiun. He aaid that the itiinu-,
lus given to the inventive mind by im
provement in instruments of warfare
may lead to peace, merely from an eco
nomic standpoint. He said that the
soldier must be disarmed as the ages ad
vance, and it wa only a question of time
when the people would not permit the
malntainance of a large standing army.
It. the afternoon at two o'clock, Mrs.
Susie Hert-Mark, the sweet singer of
California, rendered another of her de
Following this, was a recitation of Lea
Miserables, by Miss. Ida Benfey, of New
York. Miss Benfy is rightly represent
ed as being a professional story teller.
Her rendition of Hugo's great master
piece was exceedingly entertaining, and
the interest of the audience was sustain
ed throughout, Miss. Benfey repro
duced the humorous and pathetic ele
ments of the world's great novel.
The athletics which had been announc
ed for this afternoon at four o'clock, was
postponed to a later date.
At the round, table short talk were
made by Mrs. E. W. Allen, of Portland;
President Boardman, of McMinnville
college, and Chaplain C. C. Bateman, of
the U. 8. army.
A feature of the program was two
catchy recitations, by Miss. Blanch
George of the State normal school at
In the evening at 8:15, Mrs. Hert
Mark of San Francisco, sang another of
her pleaHlng solos.
Alter a skillfully executed violin solo
by Professor Hidden, Miss. Anna Bebb
of Oregon City, gave an exceedingly
clever exhibition of fancy club swinging.
So delighted was the audience, that she
was forced to respond to an encore.
Edward Page Gaston, the Chicago
journalist and explorer, then stepped to
the front of the platform, and delivered
his jusijy celebrated lecture on Cuba,
After giving a description of the island
of Cuba, and its people, he described a
Cuban bull fight, as It is carried on on
the island. His talk was very thrilling
as he described the methods of battle
between man and beast. He tben
spoke of the insurgent cause in Cuba
tracing its growth from its beginning;- to
its present position, giving their pros
pects for success which to biro appear
most favorable. Mr. Gaston was
repeatedly cheered as he voiced the pop
ular sentiments for Cuban independence.
Mr. Gaston's lecture was one of intense
interest, and on of the most popular
which has yet been delivered on tho
Wednesday the classes met at their
respective places, for first time. Follow
ing is a list of the instructors, and the
department of which they have charge.

The Oregonian is represented at the
assembly this year by Mr. W. B. Dod
boii, who is among the brightest young
newspaper men of Portland. His re
ports of each day's events are very full
and fair, and the public spirit of the
Oregonian in giving so much space to
tbe assembly proceedings, is fully appre
ciated by the officers and those in atten
dance, as well as those who are unable to
attend and wish to know what is being
The tents of all the campers have
been numbered this year. This was
done for convenience in locating people
who were camping, for the tents bad
become so numerous that it was impos
ble to direct a stranger how to find a
friend upon tbe grounds. The tent
numbering is also a great convenience
the deliverymen for the 'stores and
other supply bouses, for it is to them
the same aa street numbers ic town.
Manager Cowing of the Oregon City

appreciated by those attending the
assembly. Telephone connection is also

tion, i tie tast bide liatl way company
has given much better service with its
eletric cars than at former assemblies.
Tbe company's ?ar dispatcher William
Schambreaa has changed his office from
Portland to the park so that he is better
able to handle the cars, as he is thus able
to know when and where the cars "are
moet needed and to his skill and close at
tention is due the absence of confusion
and delay .that is so annoying in handling
crowds such as are each evening to bo
transported to Portland and Oregon City.
