No Room on His Yacht
It gives me great pleasure to recommend most highly your Aeolian. Although
I can play no musical instrument, this I find a constant source of amusement to
my friends and myself. As you know, I first had one of your small Instruments;
then a Grand, and afterward two Orchestrelles; and it is only want of room that
prevents me from having another Orchestrelle on my yacht. Yours truly,

BRYAN'S VIEW OF ANARCHY
He Snjs It Cnnnot Be Suppressed
by Penal Statnte.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. S. Jackson
day was observed here tonight by the
New Haven Democratic Club. W. J.
Bryan was a jruest and the chief sneaker.
Sir. Bryan spoke at a banquet, and also
at a public meeting in Music Hall.
It is. impossible to suppress anarchy, he
said, by penal statute. It must be over
come, he said, by teaching the necessity
of the Government, and by making the
Government so beneficent that men will
be willing to die to preserve and protect
it. He denied that the money question is
a. dead issue, assailed the Supreme Court
decision in the Downs case, and expressed
the belief that the "valor of the Boers,
despite reverses, had cost Great Britain
so dearly that republics all over the
world, wherever situated, would be safe."

HAVEMYER'S ANNUAL REPORT
The Trnst Want the Duty on Sugar
NEW YORK, Jan. 8. At the annual
meeting of the stockholders of the Amer
ican Sugar Refining Company in Jersey
City today. President Havemeyer present
ed his annual report. He said:
"It would seem that, with an over
flowing Federal Treasury, there had dis
appeared any reason for continuing the
existing high tariff upon raw sugar. It
constitutes a charge upon the consump
tion of nearly 2 cents a pound. This rep
resents, on an annual consumption of
2,350,000 tons, JS5.C00.O00 a year. Of this,
however, only 1.360,000 tons are imported,
yielding customs revenues of $49,000,000.
The balance, $36,000,000, goes into the
pockets of the planters. A removal of
this duty on raw sugar would result in a
saving to the consumer of $55,000,000."

CHEAP GAS FOR PARISIANS
Offer Made by an American Syndi
cate. PARIS, Jan. 8. La Vie Flnanclere an
nounces in its issue this morning that an
American syndicate, represented by A.
Brady, a gas expert, is preparing to
finance a French company which Is now
being organized to the amount of 10,000,000
francs, and that this amount will be in
creased, if necessary, to 25,000.000 francs.
The paper say6 that the French com
pany proposes to take up the concession
to supply gas to the City of Paris and its
suburbs upon the expiration of the present
j monopoly In 1905; and that it will manu-
i facture gas by a new process, and that it
sumerc. for IS centimes per cubic metre
and for municipal.- industrial, heatlnz- and
J cooking purposes at 15 centimes per cubic
metre. The company asks for a conces

right to repurchase in 1930. The company
demands no guarantee, and hopes to be
able to pay the city 6.000,000 francs annu
ally out of the profits. Parisians now pay
30 centimes per cubic metre for gas, while
the municipality pays 25 centimes.
The new proposition will come before
the Municipal Council next Thursday. The

BAD FOR THE GANAL
Strong Feeling Against the
RESULT OF PANAMA OFFER
Whole Question May Be Referred
Baclc to the Isthmian Commis
sion for Farther Report
Ovation to Schley
WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. A very strong
tide has been setting ngalnst definitely
fixing the Nicaragua route in the proposed
Isthmian canal legislation. The debate in
the House has been the surprise to those
favoring Nicaragua because so many men.
champions of the canal, have given heed
to the new offer of the Panama Canal
Company. It was stated tonight that If
the debate should run much longer in the
House, there is a prospect that the Mor
ris amendment would be adopted. In the
Senate the talk is decidedly in favor otJ
considering the new offer of Panama,
and there is a feeling among the friends
of the Nicaragua bill that the sentiment
has grown so strong that It will result in
referring the whole question back to the
commission for further report, and that
some proposition like the Morris amend
ment will be adopted. There Is some pos
sibility that legislation may be defeated,
although the sentiment for a canal is so
strong that it la insisted that this Con
gress cannot adjourn until eome canal is
definitely authorized, even if a further re
port is received from the commission.
In a casual statement, Hanna says he Is
for Panama, and even talks of the old
Darien proposition. This is taken to in
dicate that he opposes Nicaragua, wh,lch
is no surprise to those who have seen
what Hanna has been doing.
An Ovation to Schley.
Admiral Schley received an ovation at
the Foraker wedding today. Hundreds of
guests clustered around him, eager to
shake his hand, even though many had
not met him. In fact, he received a great
deal more attention than the President,
and this from people high in official and
social life. Notwithstanding the popular
demonstration In favor of Schley, the
President surely stands by the NavyTDe
partment. The committees of both Sen
ate and House are also against Schley. It
is rumored today that the President has
said that it will be no uso to pass any

Direct Election of Senators.
Some Senators received a little shock
today, when they discovered that a prop
osition is on foot to have the states de
mand a constitutional convention for
considering tho proposition of electing
Senators by direct vote of the people.
About two-thirds of the Senate opposes
this proposition, and the only way It
could be brought about is by two-thirds
of the states requesting a convention.
Then, under the Constitution, Congress
would have to act, and a convention
would be held. Only six states have so
far availed themselves of the privilege to
ask for such a convention, but Senators
who oppose any change fear that others
will likely follow the example when the

The Fight Against the Merger.
The three attorneys representing the
State of Minnesota before the Supreme
Court in its opposition to the merging of
the Great Northern and Northern Pacific
roads had a long conference with the Attorney-General
this afternoon. While
they would not discuss this conference,
they have no doubt that the court will
render a decision m effect giving the state
Jurisdiction of the case. In that event
they express great confidence that the
roads can be effectively reached under
state laws. They made no request upon
the Attorney-General to take part in the
matter, but intimated that later they
might ask the Government to assist in
the prosecution of these roads under the
Sherman anti-trust law. This morning
these 'gentlemen called on the President,
and went over the main features of the
case with him. Mr. Roosevelt 'showed
great interest in the case, and wrote a
personal letter of introduction for them
to the Attorney-General, asking him to
give the matter very careful considera
tion. It is assumed from this that the
President is In full sympathy with the
people of Minnesota in their efforts to
break down the combination.

President's Annnal Message.
President Hahn opened the business ot
the meeting without ceremony, and his
report touched upon the features of the
work for the past year and the present
condition of affairs, as follows:
It Is my pleasure to report that the jcar
which has Just ended was the most prosperous
tvteHemonth In the history of Oregon. In tho
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
rtate at large every line of Industry was un
usually active, and the close of the year found
.all classes of people contented and happy. In
agriculture, diversity of production Is taking
hold, and in only a few sections, and these
isolated, do our people depend upon a single
crop, as in comparatively recent times, for
their maintenance. Mining has been estab
lished upon a firm basis, with certain indica
tions ot a large output in the immediate fu
ture. Local manufactures are increasing, and
will become more Important with the growth
of population. While our orchards are bearing
heavily, there appears to be no reason to doubt
that there will be ample market for our fruit
for a number of years to come. The close of
1002 will see Oregon tho principal lumbering
state of the North Pacific Coast. "Washington
has long held this position, but it must soon
give way in the face of the greater activity
in this industry in Oregon. Population is In
creasing at a rapid rate, necessitating. In some
parts of the state, the division of the larger
farms Into small tracts, and In other sections
the undertaking of Irrigation enterprises to
make more land available for settlers.
Portland Is adding to Its population at the
rate ot 10.000 or 15.000 annually. Our growth
Is steady and substantial, and without notable
boom features. Our Jobbing trade last year ap
proximated $121,000,000. the largest amount
ever recorded. We would hae done still be
ter had w e been given a fair chance by the rail
roads In territory to the east that rightfully be
longs to us. On the whole, the trade situation Is
satisfactory, but we must bear In mind that
the country is growing as never before, and.
for the best results, we must be eer watchful
of the opportunities that are constantly open
ing to us. We need but keep pace with the
country to retain our position as the chief com
mercial city of the North Pacific Coast, and
extend our Influence In the vast region of
which we hae been the chief mart for over
half a century.
Our prompt response to the call for pledges
to the stock of the Lew Is and Clark Centennial
Fair gae birth to a new spirit of energy and
enterprise In Portland. It called out our re
serves, harmonized us, mobilised our forces, as
it were, and demonstrated what we can do as
a community for any enterprise we undertake.
The subscribing of some $305,000 In two days
was In Itself a small matter for a clty'havlng
a population of oer 100.000. a banking power
of between $20,000,000 and $25,000,000. and a
mercantile capital, not Including "foreign
houses." of nearly $23,000,000. Our principal
gain has been the new feeling of strength
which has worked Us way ,into every branch
of effort and taken hold of every Individual,
and the spirit ot confidence In the future of
Portland that has shown itself on every hand.
Portland has been a new city . since this
achievement. It la now a city that can do
In the jar Just closed the Chamber of Com
merce has, through Its board of trustees, given
consideration to nearly every subject relating
to the material welfare of Oregon and the
commercial Interests of Portland. As these
matters were set forth In our booklet. "Past
and Future Work," published last November
and supplied to all members, I shall not en
cumber this address by enumerating them. Wo

gration and as a bureau of Information, and
In this capacity hae disseminated a great
quantity of printed matter descriptive of Ore
gon and Portland, besides making personal an
swer to many letters.
Realizing that transportation Is one of the
main needs of the Columbia River Valley, we
have given unremitting attention to the sub
ject of opening the Upper Columbia and Snake
Rivers to navigation, and improving the mouth
of tho Columbia so as to provide a 40-foot
channel for the accommodation of our foreign
and coastwise commerce. In some quarters the
cry has been raised that if upper river im
provement be too strongly pressed there will
be danger that Congress will not glvo tha
mouth of the river the attention It merits.
In other quarters tho fear has been expressed
that river navigation would Injure tho business
of the railroads and make their operation un
profitable. In my Judgment, neither of these
positions has foundation in fact. The river
and harbor bill which was talked to death by
Senator Carter at the last session of Congress
carried provisions for appropriations amounting
to $1,400,000 for tho mouth of the Columbia. If
a river and harbor bill is passed at this ses
sion of Congress there can be no doubt that
the mouth of the Columbia will bo amply pro
Ided for, as It Is recognized In and out of
Congress as being among the meritorious proj
ects that are entitled to National approprla
t'ons. The fear that advocacy of the opening
of the upper rivers will Injure the mouth ot
the Columbia does not arise so much for friend
ship for the mouth of the Columbia as from
The opening of the Upper Columbia and
Snake Rivers would so develop the country that
there would be traffic enough for the railroad
now occupying tho south bank of ,the river,
for the steamboatst, and" for the often project
ed railroad on the north bank of the Columbia.
It not-toa umumrt -tfcat the -project for
opening the xioper rivers to navigation will
escape the opposition of the railroad companies.
Water-borne transportation is tn active com
petitor of the rallwajs, and will always be
fought by them. In the Pacific Northwest at
the present time the railroads are opposing not
only the improvement of the Inland waterways,
but the construction of competing railways.
Thus we find Hill and Morgan keeping Harrl
man out ot the I,ewlston country, and each
of the conflicting Interests fighting the other
away from the Nehalem-Tlllamook country.
But free navigation on the Columbia and Its
tributaries Is not a local or sectional Issue.
It appeals with equal force to every resident
of Oregon. Washington and Idaho, embracing
230,000 square miles a region as large in area
as all the New England States and New York.
Pennsjlvanla. New Jersey. Ohio and Kentucky
combined. There Is room here for the railroads
and the steamboats, too. The people are en
titled to competitive transportation, and If they
will unite in their own Interest, they will be
able to obtain from Congress the relief they
so urgently need.
The Secretary's neport.
Close attention was given to the presi
dent's report, and It was greeted with
approving applause. Then Secretary
Flelschner read his annual report of the
operations of the trustees of the Cham
ber of Commerce. It was not long, and
the chief parts follow:
The year ended December 31, 1001, witnessed
the development of the Chamber of Commerce
Into a trade organization of large and Influen
tial membership and an enlarged sphere of use
fulness. We began the year with 149 members
and gained six between that date and Septem
ber 30. In the same period we lost two by
death Hon. L. B. Cox and Mr. H. M. Clinton
12 by resignation, and two by consolidation
in the wheat-exporting Interests. This was a
loss of 10, leaving the membership on October
1 at 139. A preliminary canvass In the early
Fall disclosed the fact that our business men
were not only willing but ready to give hearty
support to the work which the Chamber of
Commerce has for jears been doing for the
welfare of Portland. Thereupon an active and
sjsteroatlc canvass for members was under-
taken, with the result that 130 members wore
gained In a comparatively short time. We had
275 members on the rolls at the close of ths
3 ear. Since December 31, 20 more have been
elected, making the total membership at this
date 205. Total receipts during the year were
$3200 61; expenditures. $2333 33; balance on
hand, December 31, ?273 2S.
The financial resources of the Chamber of
Commerce available to the incoming board of
trustees are as follows: Cash on hand. January

$30 25; dues from 295 members, at $5 for tho
first quarter ot 1902. $1475; total. $1737 57.

work of the Chamber of Commerce In
