sounds. Such a substance has never yet
been found, although the searchers for It
have been and still are many. Photog
raphy In colors, so far as It has been ac
complished at all, ha been accomplished
by asethods more or less indirect
Some of tho methods employed for thla
purpose are not at nil new, but are prac
tically unknown to the public Briefly,
they consisted in the use of a chemical
which possesses to some extent the prop
erties of the Ideal substance mentioned
above. When this substance, the violet
sub-chloride of ftlver, had formed upon it
the Image of the spectrum, colors were au
tomatically produced which were more or
less true, according to circumstances. The
colors were not permanent, however, and,
although many well-known names are
connected with this method, it has never
been reliable or satisfactory.
The Three-Color Proceaa.
The flret real success was obtained by
completely breaking away from the older
Ideas and uetng a method In which the
final colored photograph Is obtained by a
very roundabout process. This method in
all Its modifications owes it succenful
operation to certain physiological peculiar-ltlei-
of color sensation.

Important (or the Study.
Before making any attempt to read the
text of the new French lesson the student
should, If possible, hear It several times
from the mouth of one who has a better
knowledge of the language than himself. It
Is also Important to try to familiarise one's
self thoroughly with the meaning and spell
ing of each word. To promote the latter ia
particular It will !e well to transcribe as
often as possible from dictation and from
memory some of the Important sentences:
then compare them with the originals and
note the mistakes.
The following Is a proper translation of
the last French exercise:

Before taking up a new lesson lbs student
Is adslsed to rehearse the text of all previous
lessons, so that as be advance he will be
come thoroughly familiar with all words,
phrases and Idioms already used.
Note The English translation of this ex

which will be published next Tuesday.
prism or the diffraction grating Into the
spectrum, tho tight at each point in this
band of color differs from that at any
other point in wave-length or frequency of
vibration, and in nothing else. Every
spectrum color, therefore. Is simple. In
Its effect in the eye, however, it may
not be simple: that Is, the color sensation
may be due to the simultaneous action
upon two or even three sew of the nerve
in the retina, which are supposed to give
rise to color perception. Moreover, of
two lights which produce the same color
effect, one may be simple consisting of
one wave-length only and the other a
compound of two or more wave-lengths.
The eye does not analyze, and It is possi
ble to produce any color sensation what
ever by combining in proper proportions
three simple colors red. green and violet
The relation which these primary color
sensations bear to one another In the
normal eye Is shown In the cut The pro
portion In which each must be excited to
produce the cfTect of a given color Is found
by taking tho height of each curve above
the horizontal line at the point correspond
ing to the given color, and the action ot
all at once gives the effect of white. The
addition of color in this way la very dif
ferent from the mixture of paints, and the
'three primary colors which are used in
any process will differ according to the

source, a bright landscape for Instance. Is
passed through a plate of clear ruby
glass. The ruby glass alworbo all colors
except a pure red. and the effect of urlrg
such a screen Is therefore to s!ft out
everything but red, on of the primaries
A photograph taken through a red screen
will give a plate in which tho form Is re
produced in red values and In no others.
Similar photographs taken without mov
ing the camera merely changing tho
screen for one of green or of violet give
other plates in which the picture Is re
corded in green or in violet values. The
Images will be similar In the three plate
and similarly placed, but will differ In
tone In the different part In accordance
with the proportion of the almple compo
nents which maka up the light at those
Now, If positives are made from the
three negatives and each color screen com
bined with the positive corresponding or
the positives might be colored with suit
able red, green and violet dyes we have
the elements of a color photograph. Tht

In three lanterns nd white light pro
jected through them. When the three prl
raary Images are in exact register on th

This is the substance of the, three-color
process, whatever Its particular modlflca.
tlons may be. If the three positive are
Intended to be mounted together and
viewed by transmitted light, then dyes ot
different colors must be used; tor the ac
tion is one of subtraction Instead ot addi
tion. We must be sure that all the red
get through. from the red positive, all
the green from the green positive and all
the violet from the violet positive, and
this is just what would not happen If the
same colors were used In the viewing
screens that were used in the taking
The Joly Process.
There 1 one modification ot the three
color process, as outlined above. In which
the three primary plates are combined
in one. This Is accomplished In the fol
lowing way: A screen la ruled with fine
lines, 200 or 300 or more to the inch, the
ruling being In the color chosen as pri
maries in this cape, orange, yellow-
(u wss ikh kit "'
green and blue-violet The lines are col
ored in regular rotation. The first orange,
the second yellow-green, the third blue-
violet, the fourth orange 'again, and so on.
The three primary-color screens or tne
ordinary three-color process are thus. In
a sense, combined In one. A single ex
posure 1 made In the usual way through
this line screen and a positive obtained,
clvlnjr the three component color tones
separately, but divided Into small portions
In accordance with the ruling. A second
screen of ruling exactly similar to that
of the first Is placed In contact witn tne.
positive, and the picture viewed by trans
mitted light appears in It natural colors.
The colors In the viewing screen are red,
green and blue-violet
The success of this method depends
upon still another action In the eye itself.
If the lines on any cf the plates are seen
very near to or under magnification they
appear quite distinct and separate. At
some distance, however, tne sense ot ots
tinct form la lost the lines blend together
and the mixture of colors Is accomplished
by a mixture of sensation in the eye.
It Is this same action that Is responsi
ble for the color effects of woven fabrics.
the tone effects of engravings, wood cut
and half-tones, and to some extent the
color effects In oil paintings. The power
of the eye to distinguish form Is limited,
and portions ot the image upon the retina
which lie very close together are not seen
as separate Images. Thus the black lines
and 'white spaces of line engraving, when
viewed from a. distance blend together and
produce the effect of a gray of greater or
less dei th, according to the proportions of
black and white.
Evidently the viewing screen in the Joly
process to produce true colors must be ex
actly in register with the positive, each
red viewing line exactly above a line taken
through the orange of the taking screen,
and so on. If It Is shifted along by the
width of one line, a bright red becomes
a brilliant green.
DISCUSSED LAW MAKING.
Interesting; Meetlns; Held br Central
W. C. T. U.
An Interesting meeting of the Central
W. C. T. U. waa held yesterday. The,
civic government class, under the leader
ship of Mrs. A. Sargent discussed the
"Manner of Making Laws." An interest
ing review of Joslah 8trongs book, en
titled "Our Country," The marvelous
progress of the past century was vividly
portrayed. An extract from the writings
of Miss Wlllard on the "Woman Ques
tion" was road, the summary being: "By
trie laws ot rational thought a got em
inent by the people must include women,
and that necessary idea is being slowly
embodied In law. This Is the mighty
philosophy of the movement for woman's
right to the ballot; that It would be the
one ingredient that can counteract the
virus of boodlelsm." Arrangements for
a May Day party at Mrs. H. J. Shane's
residence were made.
The literature superintendent reported
that some good temperance literature had
been received and placed in the hands ot
the Noon Rest matron.
The following programme -was arranged
for the next meeting: Responsive reading
on social settlement work; civic govern
ment class, lesson 7; brief review of sec
ond chapter of "Our Country": paper on
"Miss Wlllard en Gospel Socialism."
WONDERLAND FOR 1900.
Describes Territory Tributary to
Northern Pacific Railway.
Winderland for 1900, written by Olln D.
Wheeler, and Issued by the Not them Pa
cific Railway Company, Is one ot the best
of the Issues of this publication. The
subject-matter is descriptive of the re
gion tributary to the road, and begins
with a splendidly written descriptive
sketch of the Louisiana purchase, entitled
"On the Trail of Lewi and Clark." This
chapter describes the events that lead up
to the expedition, the expedition Itself,
and finally the country explored. This
chapter is followed by a description of
the road Itself, In a chapter called "The
Story of a Railway." This Is not only
Interesting to those whose occupation
causes them, to Investigate railway con
struction, but will be read with pleas
ure and profit by the general public The
next division is "Through Yellowstone
Park." and is a graphic description ot
the picturesque beauty of the famous
National park in the heart of the Rocky
Mountains, with its wonderful geysers,
cascades and falls. The hotels of tho
park are told of. and the final chapter
tells something of "Golden Alaska," the
vast and Interesting region about which
so little Is known. The publication from a
typographical standpoint is a work of art,
and It Is superbly Illustrated.

REINDEER FOR ALASKA
WHAT HAS BBKX ACCOMPLISHED
AND WHAT IS WASTED.
Talk With Sheldon Jackson and Dr.
Harris Mors Daer to Be Int.
ported ThU Year.
WASHINGTON. April lo.-The Rev. Dr.
Bhcldon Jacknon is preparing to return to
Alaska In May or June and continue hi
relndwr work In that district ,
"We havo ta.COO at our disposal at prev
ent," he said, "but we should have at
least flOO.COO." ' x
"Yro," added Commissioner ot Educa
tion Harris, under whom .Dr. Jackson op
erates, "Alaska will support 10.000.000 rein
deer. The whole district I covered with
moss suitable for reindeer. Literally, Ihls
statement 1 not quite true, aa there aro
some small areas, near the Tukon, where
the silt ha assisted tho mess to advance a
step or two, and scrubby trees rceult
Mots is the first stage and then a higher
class of vegetation results."
"To be sure." said Dr. Jacksop, "there
Is one place In the Tukon Valley where
our reindeer nearly starved. It is one of
the places referred to by Dr. Harris. The
party in charge of the deer had to cut
some trees and get moan from their tops,
but this moss is of an Inferior grade and
not entirely suited to the doer. But. as
a general thing, there Is plonty of moss
In Alaska for reindeer and, in order to
protect the natives as well as the whites
from possible starvation in an emergency,
we should hurry along the work of swell
ing the number ot deer in all parts ot the
"By tho way. Dr. Harris," exclaimed
Dr. Jackson enthusiastically, "I have just
received a letter from Cape Nome. It Is
the first letter to be brought through suc
cessfully by reindeer mall-carrier teams.
It Is from Dr. Gamble, and he report all
of our reindeer doing well. He also in
closes a receipt from Antlsarlook, dated
Rodney Point about 30 miles from Nome.
This receipt is of great Interest It re
calls tne Jarvls rescue party."
ur. Jackson passed around the receipt
which has been carried hundreds of miles
over froren Alaska, in the dead of Winter,
from Point Rodney, near Nome, to the
Tukon Valley, to the mouth of the Ta
nana River where the reindeer mall
carrying part ot the journey ended up
tne iuicon to circle City and Dawstn, and
over the White Pass to Skagway and a
steamer for Puget Sound. The receipt
was written in inlcby Dr. Gamble, and
signed by Antlsarlook with a blue lead-
pencil, it is as follows:
"Point Rodney. Alaska, Dec 2, 1S99. Re
ceived from the United States Bureau of
Education, through Dr. Sheldon Jackson,
general agent, 328 reindeer, bslng pajment
In full for the 133 reindeer borrowed-by
Lieutenant D. H. Jarvls, R. C S.. Janu
ary 19. 1858. for the relief of the whalers
at Point Barrow, together with the na
tural Increaso of said deer for the years
183$ and ISM.
"It will be observed." continued Dr.
Jackson, "that we returned 321 deer to
Antlsarlook for the 133 that we borrowed.
Thlajndlcates quite well how fast the deer
increase. All told, we have purchased 547
deer for Alaska, and we have 2SO0 to 3000
now to show for the original purchase.
By next fall we will have nearly 4000, In
cluding deer of all sizes and ages.
"This season we expect to buy in Si
beria 00 more deer and bring them over
to our missionary stations. We figure on
the deer costing 5 to 36 In trading goods,
and that the total cost when landed Is
approximately 323. Therefore, we arc
willing and feel warranted In paying tS
a head delivered. For transporting the
deer to Alaska from Siberia we need a
small vessel, a steam schooner, that will
carry about ISO deer each trip. We find
that the deer do better on the decks than
between decks. That was our experience
hi bringing deer from Lapland when It was
proposed to take supplies to Dawson. We
have engaged about 500 deer, and expect
to land them all safely."
"Some people ask." Dr. Harris remarked,
"what we are going to do with rso many
deer. The answer is that the district is
so large and the needs of the natives so
great that we will need many thousand
head to guard against emergencies. Sup
pose, for Instance, that there is a short
ago of supplies in one ot the mining camps.
A raid would be made at once upon the
reindeer. The handful we now have
would not last long. The reindeer fur
nishes clothing, in Its hide, for the na
tives; furnishes food in its meat; fur
nishes milk and cheese, and Is, also, a
means of transportation. Away ip in the
Northwestern Territory there are thou
sands upon th6usands of moose. The
country will support them, and they are
only another kind of reindeer."
Dr. Jackson having referred to the rein
deer from Lapland for he "relief of
Dawson" and the supposfil starving min
ersfor which purpose Congress appro
priated JSO.000 his attention was called
to the remarks of those who dellghuln
denouncing his work especially In Alaska
and some of whom speak of him disre
spectfully ns "Shell-game," instead of
"Yes," he replied, bitterly; "I note what
they say in the papers. Their Hes do not
disturb me In my work."
In Alaska last Summer the leading Cath.
olio clergyman ot Juneau stated, on board
a steamer bound for Skagway, that the
Government educational work In the dis
trict would ever remain Ineffective until a
Eonsectarlan man was placed In charge
and the Rev. Sheldon Jackson was re
moved, or devoted nis""cnergtea entirely to
"We aro entitled to a. superintendent of
education for Alaska," said the prelate,
"who will recognize all denominations,
and who will not concentrate his atten
tion solely on one. In this respect Dr.
Jackson Is a failure, to speak of nothing
else. He should be here on the ground
and acquaint himself with our needs."
"I have been in Alaska for 20 years,"

He feels satisfied and proud ot his work.
Residents of Alaska, especially, question
the success of his efforts, but Dr. Jack

unfavorable remarks emanate either from

from Philadelphia. He" was Inexperi

stories of cannibals living near Unga. in

CHURCH AFFAIRS IN ENGLAND
Addreas by the Dnke of Hewcaatlc
at Sew York.
NEW 'YORK, April 16. The Duke of
Newcastle, who, next to Lord Halifax, is
the leader of the ritualistic or "Catholic"
party In England, made an address on
Sunday before the Men's Guild, of the
Church of St Mary the Virgin, the "high
est" Episcopal church In New York.
"We in England are passing through a
most anxious time," he said. "At the
moment the war absorbs public notice, and
we aro enjoying a temporary lull, but It
Is .only temporary, and I fear we have
much trouble ahead. When tne arcnDn
ops delivered their preposterous Judgment
lost July, Catholics were dumfounded,
because most ot them thought that at
i-oat It would be a compromise, odious as
compromise always Is, when matters of
Catholic faith and practice are at stake.
"But the judgment being what it was.
the right course would -have been for
Catholics to present a united front and
finally to refuse obedience. That the de
cision was only an opinion we have the
primates own authority for stating. Un
fortunately, Catholics did not act togeth
er", and many of those priests whom we
had looked up to as pillars of the faith
were the first tc yield, some through sheer
panic, other through what I think a mis
taken sense ot duty. Thank God there
are some who remain firm. Their posi
tions are very difficult, and In "some dio
ceses the bishops are pursuing a course
ot systematic persecution of these priests
who wlfl not betray their people by sur
rendering their Catholic principles.
I havo maintained throughout that in
cense must be fought for vigorously, be
cause the real attack Is not upon it but
upon the whole doctrine of the Eucharist.
It is the real point that Kenslt and all
tho blatant Protestants In England nate.
and it Is that Catholic truth, that they
are determined to root out of England's
church If they can. Incenso Is only a
preliminary object of attack, but It Is
quite certain that all the rest will follow.
and that is why we can't submit
I feel, many Catholics feel, that tne
only remedy for the evil is disestablish

of Parliament was, at least nominally, a
churchman, the connection between
church and state, was possible, but now,
when Parliament contains men of all re
ligions and of no religion, the connection
is an apomaly, and If Parliament should
attempt to revise the prayer-book, a con
tingency by no means impossible. I trem
ble to think what the result would be.
I dislike to see did things disturbed, but
my conviction Is that we Catholics In
England should work for the complete In

Mining Clnlma by Allen.
PORTLAND. April 16--(To the Editor.)
Would you kindly, through the columns
of your paper, answer the following ques
tion? Can a foreigner who enlisted in the
United States Army at the age ot 16, and
served three years, and who received an
honorable discharge therefrom, can ho
at the age of 21 take up a mining claim,
without procuring his naturalization pa
pers? A. HOWARD.
No. Section 1, of the Oregon mining
laws, passed at the special session of the
Legislature in October, 1898, says:
"Any person, a citizen of the United
States, or one who has declared his in
tention to become such, who discovers a
vein or lode . . . may locate a claim
upon such vein or lode. . . ."
However, any alien who has served in
the United States Army and received an
honorable discharge, may become a citi
zen on application, without having taken
out first papers, the only condition being
one year's residence and good moral char
acter. i i
For Fusion In Washington.
SPOKANE, April 16. The Democratic
State Central Committee today fixed May
19 as the date, and Spokane as the place,
of the state convention to select dele
gates to the National convention.
Thomas Maloney, ex-secretary of the
committee, was elected chairman, vice
H. T. Jones, resigned. C H. Goddard, of
Dayton, was elected secretary. A confer
ence with the Populist State Central Com
mittee developed a disposition for fusion,
and it was agreed by both bodies that the
fixing of the state convention should be
postponed until after the Democratic Na
tional Convention, when the two bodies
will meet at Seattle and arrange the basis
of fusion, which will probably be one con
