First. Day Theme at Gladstone
Chautauqua Assembly.
President Ha-urley Opening Address
Response by Prof. Horaer-Con
ffressman Landls Lecture.
u he -weather conditions -were not
altogether favorable this morning the
seventh annual assembly of the Willam
ette .Valley Chautauqua Assembly opened
auspiciously this forenoon. The interest
expressed by the auditors was an indi
cation that the Chautauqua, idea is get
ting a strong hold on the people. The
event of the day was Congressman
Charles B. Landis' lecture In the even
ing. At the afternoon session an ex
cellent musical programme was present
ed. Professor C. E. Kemp, of Chicago,
made a decided hit in his readings. While
the attendance today was not equal to
that of the first -day last year, the man
agement is hopeful that succeeding days
will more than moke up the deficiency.
Campers have been arriving all day, and
new tents are going up in every direc
tion. The game of in which
the Oregon Citys beat the Canbys at
tracted a large crowd this afternoon.
At 10:30 President W. C. Hawley called
the assembly to order, after a selection
by the Chemawa Indian Band. Rev. A.
Blackburn, of Portland, give the invo
cation. In his address of welcome Presi
dent HawJey called attention to the spe
cial features and outlook for the seventh
annual assembly. He also spoke of the
varied feast of wisdom and recreation
to be presented. Ievotional services
WOUld begin at 7 O'clock in th mnrnlnr
classes at 8; there would be divers en
tertainments, games on the athletic field,
music, song, oratory and serious study.
The speaker said "that many a patriotic
voice had heen heard in this neatly dec
orated auditorium. The groves in this
Chautauqua Park, yet to be made classic,
are for tout use and pleasure. We also
have a lake that is to be made famous."
He &sllecl attention to the fact that there
was every opportunity here to pass away
the time Jn reading, recreation or in the
acquirement of knowledge. This one and
the Chautauqua Assembly at Ashland
have done a noble work. The auditors
were told that they could enjoy them
selves as suited their convenience. The
classes were free, except In some special
lines. f The very best talent obtainable had
been secured in every line. If one be
came tired of listening to scientific lec
tures, he could find recreation readlm In
. the shady groves, or in a social way, find
pleasure in the games on the athletic
grounds or enjoy the musical entertain
ments. All these things tended to intel
lectual improvement.
Professor J. B. Homer, of the State
Agricultural College, of Corvallls, re
sponded to President Hawleys address
of welcome, in pirt as follows:
"We have taken a brief respite from the
year's toils and cares, to meet again and
renew acquaintances, enjoy delightful en
tertainments and drink in the culture that
comes along with such occasions and ex
ercises. And we have come with the as
surance that the season will be profitably
spent. Experience has taught this. The
Chautauqua brings together a class of
people, different from any others that
wo meetr so the only way to commingle
with this kind of people is to come to
the Chautauqua. There are many good
people who, for want of more knowledge
of the Chautauqua, do not realize what
tney are missing every year. .Butthe'
Chautauqua idea, is growing, and the
Chautauqua is" coming, to be one of the
great institutions. Like the college, the
university and the public school, it has
come to stay. It means everything to us,
because it stands for that which is good
and noble. The world Is lovelier day by
day for such influences as the Willamette
"Valley Chautauqua Association, and It
makes me glad that my adopted state,
the state where my children were born
and will probably spend their lives, ex
hibits already more enterprise in promot
ing and .supporting such Institutions as
this than has any other state on the
Pacific Coast, for I feel that if this con
tinues, by and by Oregon will be a little
aristocracy of physical health, strong in
tellect andtmoral worth, the only endur
ing aristocracy, ancient or modern, known
to man. Furthermore, we need this par
ticular kind of Influence at the present
time. We live In an age of electricity,
when everything is done with the speed
of lightning, and since man has employed
the forces of nature to do his menial
labor for him, thinking is about tthe only
thing that is left for him to do. The
Chautauqua Is fitting people for these
conditions. These benefactors who have
sacrificed so much time and energy may
not live to receive their reward nor to
witness the results of their labor, hut
away down the decades, when memora
bilia of Oregon will be written, there
will appear many a noble deed that grew
out of what was said and done years
before at the Willamette Valley Chautau
qua Association. Therefore, Mr. Presi
dent, in behalf of these vistors and oth
ers who are soon to join us, I desire to
express a hearty appreciation of the cor
dial invitation extended, and this is with
the belief that your suggestions will find
a responsive note in the hearts of all this
good people."

in a class alone." The readings were in
terspersed with a musical programme,
consisting of a piano solo by Miss Pearl
Smith, duet by Professor Boyer and Miss
May Dearborn, and a duet by Miss Dear
born and Mrs. Bushong.
The round table at 5 o'clock was pre
sided over by Mrs. WllllAm Galloway, and

Mae Case entertained the gathering with
soveral solos.
At the baseball game this afternoon the
Oregon City team defeated Canby by a
score of 35 to 24. The Columbian, of Port
land, will "play the Chemawas tomorrow
Tonight Congressman Charles B. Lan
dls. of Indiana, gave his famous lecture.
"An Optimist's Message." and was greetV
ed by a large crowd. He stated that he
had come to give the bright side of the
picture; that he never talked about the
disagreeable things of life unless he was
compelled to. He told of his old college
president's farewell words when his class
graduated nearly 20 years ago. "It is a
good old world, young man; It Is a good
old world."
"Those were his words," said Mr. Lan
dls, "'and they are hopeful words true
words. It is a good old world here, and
a better old world to those who live in
this range of country in the States of
the Union, with its rich hills and fertile
valleys,. Its home and schoolhouses and
churches; all crowned with law and order
and' security to life and property. We
have -the best of this good old world."
Mr. Landls paid his respects to the pes
simist, .and said he was a thorn in .the
pathway of any man who wSa .inclined
to look on the bright side of life. In
business he always suspected you. In
politics ho. always distrusted you, and in
religion he always harassed you put to
the severest test your religious belief.
The pessimist never congratulated a min
ister on his sermon, never paid his
church subscription without a growl, and
was never In favor of purchasing a. pipe
organ. We talk about the religion we
may have some time when the pessi
mist dies. We will never try to have one
while he lives, for he is a sneerer and
snarler, and if we could have a record
of the communities he has kent In tur
moil, of the homes he has darkened, and
the boys and girls he. has driven to des
peration, we would have -the longest and
darkest volume since the Hood.
Mr. Landls then took ud the church.
the state and active, practical politics.
iiuu eiioweu now we naa oegun growtn
and development as tended to delight and
cheer the roan and woman who looked
up rather than down, who preferred a
star In the sky to the dull radiance of
a piece of punk, and who would rather
listen to an anthem than a dirge. The
speaker stated that the standard of mor
als in politics had been so elevated in
the last half century as seriously to re
flect on the old age by contrast. He had
been a member of Congress for four
years, and had never seen but one mem
ber under the Influence of liquor. Fifty
years ago gambling and drunkenness
wore Inseparable from public life. Re
ports to the contrary notwithstanding,
the great majority of the members of
Congress are poor men. The last ses
sion of Congress expended nearly $1,000,
000.000, and yet no man ever questioned
the Integrity of a Representative. Surely
this is a healthy sign to cheer the heart
of the optimist Mr. Landls said there
was more sympathy and charity, more
love, more happiness and prosperity in
the world than ever before. The world
was better because the mind was better.
The mind -was better because the thought
was better, and a good mind and a good
thought make a good heart, and a good
heart makes a good citizen, and good
citizens make a good country a country
for an optimist.
He spoke of the effect of the Spanish
War in wiping 'out sectional malice and
hate, and closed "by describing the 'burial
of 340 American soldiers who had died
or been killed in Porto Rico and Cuba,
and who one year ago were brought home
and placed in beautiful Arlington ceme
tery, laid away by the Nation for whose
honor and glory they had died.1 Missis
sippi's sons were laid by the side of In
diana's boys. Maine and Texas, South
Carolina and Oregon mourned over
ground that held the sacred dust of those
who died in a common cause, and in those
graves, burled forever, went the hate
and misunderstanding of a third of a
century ago. With the past differences
buried, with a great people united, with
honor and Integrity enthroned in busl-
ness, in the home and in the high places
of government there was cheer, at the
threshold of the century, for the heart of
tho optimist.

larger number of people here.
Dr. Thomas McClary, of Minneapolis,

and standtng capacity of the tabernacle
to hear him last night in his "Mission
of Mirth," and a like audience this after-r
noon for his "Scotland," and tonight,
when he delivered a new lecture on "The
American Home."

ver, will give a recital tomorrow after
noon and in the evening. The various

To Be Four Miles Beloir the Present
Station and Near Railroad.
OREGON CITY, July IL Today Super
intendent E. N. Carter, of the Clackamas
hatchery, leased 2 acres of ground from
Deputy County Recorder B. P. Dedman,
for a new hatchery site. The new loca
tion is four miles down the river from
the present site, near the railroad, and
about one mile from Clackamas .Station.
The new location has some strong springs
of pure water, which can he conveyed to
the proposed new hatchery buildings by
a gravity system to supply a system of
rearing troughs that will he operated, on
an extensive scale. The main building
to be erected will be 42x80, and the Inten
tion is to equip it with the latest im
proved apparatus. It Ib the announced
intention to make a specialty of import
ing the egg& of different varieties of fish
from the East, which will be hatched and
distributed to various sections. In fact,
the new Clackamas "hatchery Is to be
operated extensively as a distributing sta
tion. It will have the advantage of being
conveniently situated in the way of trans
portation facilities, and will be supplied
with plenty of spring water. Work will
begin at once on the new main building.
Japanese Accept Price .Offered, hnt
White Men Do Not.
VANCOUVER, B. C. July 1L No set
tlement of the Fraser River fishing- trou
bles Is found yet The canners refuse
to pay more than 20 cents per fish, which
price the Japanese are willing to accept,
while the white fishermen decline to work
for less than 25 cents. Forty special con
stables left for Stevcston tiis evening to
protect those who wish to fish. Chief Lis
ter, of the provincial police, will swear
In as many extra men as he considers
necessary. They will be placed aboard
the cannery tugs, and will patrol the fish
ing water on and adjacent to the Fraser.
The canneryroen expect that a large num
ber of boats will put out for the fishing
grounds tomorrow. At least 75 per cent
of the strikers will abandon the idea of
a 25 per cent rate for each fish caught
The canners say there is no possibility
at all of their raising the price to 25
cents. They would close up rather than
pay more than 20 cents.

Caroline Islanders Attempted to. Kill
a Shiptrrecked Creiv.
FALALU, Caroline Islands, March 23.
On the 21st Inst, the inhabitants of Falalu
were aroused by a savage attack, of the
natives upon a shipwrecked crew. The
sailors,' who were English subjects, were
seeking shelter when they were fired on
and would have been slain had It not
been for the timely arrival of an Amer
ican cattle-dealer. Wltn his three em
ployes, who were Filipinos, the Ameri
can managed to rescue John Stevenson
and James Smith, who had been seriously
wounded by the natives. Tho other three
of the crew had fled, leaving the wounded
to care for themselves.
The latter were looked after by the
American, who, although wounded him
self, conveyed them to a place ot safety.
He refused to give any information as to
his Identity, but It was learned later that
he was Edward 8t, Supery. a Callfornlan,
who left Guam to purchase some cattle
among these Islands. The natives of this
place have long been known as savages.
They are continually at war with them
selves., ' .

, Long; Passages.
The British ship Deccan Is making a
long passage from Hamburg for this
port. She is out 149 days today, and
while there are plenty of longer passages
recorded, she will be slightly overdue
unless she shows up within the next 10
days. The British ship Penthesllea which
Is coming to Portland with a general
cargo from London by way of San Diego,
Is making a longer passage than the
Deccan, for she has not yet reported at
the California port, and Is out the same
numher of days as the Deccan. As both
of these vessels are making long "pass
ages, the Riversdale which left Ham
burg nearly three weeks later, will be
very close to them, and we are in a
fair way to have three European cargo
ships discharging here at the same time.
Two Ships Finish Loading; and An
other Arrives.
The British barks Lizzie Bell and Fife
shire both finished loading yesterday,
and the French bark Marechal Vllllers
will finish tomorrow. The German ship
Rickmer RIckmers will commence loading
tHIs morning, and will follow the rest
of the fieet early next week. The British
ship Franklstan, after a long passage of
nearly 00 days from Nagasaki, arrived In
at Astoria yesterday afternoon, and will
be brought up to Portland at once. She
has made such a long trip across the Pa
cific that she may not finish in time to
clear this month, As there will be six
July cargoes without her, she can be
spared for August loading, and still leave
the first month of thenew season with
a much larger fleet than we usually have.

Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser.
The one reason why the South, must
oppose the Republican party Is more Im
portant than the dozen which are held to
favor It. Tho Advertiser has opposed
Mr. Bryan, but the Advertiser is for the
South. It has opposed the silver policy
of the Democratic platform, but between
an obsolete Democratic policy on tho cur
rency question, which nobody can now
enforce, and a Republican policy on the
suffrage question which the South-haters
of that party will enforce If they can, we
know well how to choose. The past four
years have brought their changes. Sliver,
from being an Imminent and tangible
peril, has becomo but a windy threat.
Mr. Bryan, on the problems of finance,"'
may continue ,an inept contention. But
Republican supremacy may bring "the
step from Ineptitude to Iniquity," and as
between an ineptitude, which is Impotent,
and an iniquity, which Is formidable, the
Advertiser must stand for the candidate
of the Democracy.
