"The trend In tho Eastern States Is

The foregoing words came last night
from William Westerlund, head of a Chi
cago firm of land and Immigration agents
which works along the lines of the Har

120 people headed by him has Just arrived
"The immigration movement is hardly
yet Btarted." said Mr. Westerlund- "As
the Spring opens, the number of settlers
and homeseekers will grow even more.
You sea many new faces on your streets

The person to whom the Question was
addressed admitted the fact, and Mr.
"This month, on March 17, the home
seekers' excursions will begin. They will
leave Chicago twice a month. The emi
gration westward will bo very great.
Most of the newcomers are fanners, who
bring with them sufficient means to pur
chase farms and establish themselves In
comfort. Many of them come to view
the new country and to carry back Teports

quently they are sent out here by asso

Mr, Westerlund said that of the 120 who
came with him, the majority would lo

of them came to the Willamette Valley.
"Are not most of them Republicans?"
"Yes, the" are; but do you object?"
asked Mr. Westerlund.
"Oh, no," was the response; "Oregon is
a confirmed Republican state, anyhow.
But this Immigration Is pretty hard on

"Tou will find these newcomers a very
superior class of people."
"How do they like the climate?" was

Mr. Westerlund said that the Harrlman
Immigration Bureau was distributing in
the East 3000 pamphlets on Oregon every
day. This work was undeniably bringing
highly satisfactory results.
AMERICAN BOWLED OVER
Driven Oat of Cores. Jby Intrigues of
Japan and Russia.
WASHINGTON, March 9. The short
notice from Pekln of the resignation by
William H. Binds, a son of Rear-Admiral
Sands of the United States Navy, of his
position as adviser to the-Corean govern
ment, marks the development of another
phase of the struggle that has been going
on quietly but Incessantly between Rus
sia and Japan to control the policies of
Core a. Mr. Sands was appointed secre
tary of the legation at Seoul during
President McKinley's first administration.
In 1899 he was Induced to accept the
post of adviser to the Corean government,
succeeding two Americans who had been
eminently successful In the same position,
Messrs. Legendre and Greathouse.
Not long ago the Japanese government,
desiring to Increase Its influence in
Corea, sent to that -country a Mr. Kato,
skilled In diplomacy and finances. Very
soon he had succeeded In connecting him
self with the department of agriculture
and then became an adviser to the gov
ernment, displacing Mr. Sands, whose
Influence had waned.
Tha Russian government, which had
been watching developments closely, at
this Juncture sent to Seoul a Mr. Alex
androvltch, also a financier and a man
skilled in Oriental ways. He had been
for some time stationed in Japan and
was acquainted thoroughly with Corean
methods, being a former resident in
Corea. It is Intended that he. too. shall
become an adviser to the Corean gov
ernment, restoring the balance of govern
ment, which was destroyed by the ap
pointment of the Japanese adviser. In

tered Into about five years ago between
Japan and Russia. Mr. Sands will come

Russian and Japanese Influence Are
Alternately In Control.
TOKIO, Feb. 21, via - San Francisco,
March 8. (Correspondence of the Asso
ciated Press.) The first bank note diffi
culty which threatened serious complica
tions between Corea and Japan had hard,
ly been settled with the back-down of
Corea, owing to the firm attitude of Japan,
when another complication arose. This
took the form of a Russian demand for a
concession to lay the projected railway
between Seoul and Wiju. a purely strategi
cal line. The concession to lay the Seoul-
Fusan Railway had been granted Japan.
The demand naturally excited considerable
Indignation in Japan, though some publi
cists profess that it was merely made as
a diplomatic "bluff" to forestall a possible
demand by Japan for the same privilege
as a quid pro quo for the late first bank
However that may he, it Is announced
today that Corea has rejected the Russian
demand. The Incident Is another piece of
evidence that "Corea is the storm center
of the Far East, and It will require the
keenest watchfulness on the part of rep
resentatives of all the powers to main
tain peace. It Is understood that Dr.
Allen, the United States Minister at Seoul,

NEW YORK. March S.-Mr. Chamber
lain return is anxiously awaited, ca

concerned, tho government Is almost at a
standstill in Parliament because the Colo

leading Hots of legislative programme can
be Introduced and before Mr. Ritchie

OXX.Y HAS STUBBORN COLD.
Worst Symptom of Pope I Disorder
of Digestive Organs.
PARIS, March 9. A special dispatch
from Rome says a correspondent has ob
tained an interview with a prelate at
tached to the "Vatican, showing the real
state of the pope's health. "The recep
tion of 5000 pilgrims yesterday did not fa
tigue the pontiff seriously," the corre
spondent asserts. "In fact, the audiences
and recent solemnities seem to .have hsfi
the effect of stimulating tho vital forces
of the man. His chief sources of fatigue
have been the giving of long private
audiences and serious wprk with the
cardinals and of the Vatican.
"The only thing the matter with the
pope is a rather stubborn cold, which can
not be expected to be entirely cured be
fore a fortnight. It is only then that Dr.
Lapponi can form an opinion as to the
pope's weakness, the result of which may
be fatal. Although it has been denied, the
symptom which is causing Dr. Lapponi
the greatest anxiety recently Is a slight
disorder of tho digestive and intestinal
functions. For the present the catarrh
with which the pope has been suffering
is slowly but continually improving."

WANT NEW SCHOOLHOUSE
EAST TWENTY-EIGHTH STREET
RESIDENTS APPOINT COMMITTEE.
It Waits Upon Beard ef-Education
and Represents Necessity ef Mere .
Accommodations for Pnplls.
People in the neighborhood of East
Twenty-eighth street want "a new school
house. A committee from the sub-Board
of Trade in that region, whfch waited
upon the Board, of Education At Its meet
ing last" evening stated that 225 children,
beside the Inmates of the Boys' and Girls'
Aid Society, numbering 40 of school age,
were in that rapidly-growing -vicinity, and
that the younger ones could not" walk to
the nearest .schools. An Investigation will
be. made . and improved school service
granted if necessary.
The committee was composed of Dr.-
W liuam Deveny and G. Heitkemper.
and the long-haired doctor acted as
spokesman. Between East Twenty-eighth
and East Thirty-third streets and the
Sandy and Base Line roads the population
has grown so rapidly, according to the
committee, that the nearest schools could
not accommodate the children and they
were forced to attend more .distant
schools. The nearest schoolhouse is the
North Central, almost a mile away, and
as this is crowded many "children must
walk still further to the Central and the
Sunnyslde. The distance to these build
ings is too great for the smaller children
anu many have not attended school for
Herman Wittenberg said that he Tmew
of the conditions in that neighborhood
and thought that the matter should be se
riously considered. "That country Is grow
ing wonderfully and there are certainly a
lot more children than a year ago," said
the director. "Indeed there is," said Mr.
Helutemper, "from my porch I can count
0 new houses going up and 1 neach one
there will be a family."
"When Mr. Strowbridge. was on the
board we tried to get a schoolhouse out
there and he promised to help us, but no
building has ever been put up and the
necessity has greatly increased," urged
After a discussion as to the need of a
schoolhouse in that vicinity City Super
intendent Frank Rlgler was instructed to
ascertain the number of children in the
neighborhood, and tho two men, both of
whom were anxious for a schoolhouse, but
neither of whom sent children to any of
the schools mentioned, went away satis
fied. Dr. Deveny lives In Montavllla, but
has property near East Twenty-eighth
W- H. Goddard presented a petition from
the people hear the Highland School ask
ing that' the basement of the building
might be used to hold an entertainment,
through which It was expected that the
school children might be . Interested In
cleaning up the grounds and the streets
near the school. Mr. Goddard made a
verbal request, to this effect and it was
allowed. After outside business had been
disposed of, however. School Clerk H. S.
Allen read the formal petition in which
the improvement "association, under whoso
auspices -e entertainment, will be held,
askod to use the room for a regular meet
ing place. Chairman Richard Williams
had not understood that Mr. Goddard
wanted this also, and at once said that
school buildings could not be used for
purposes not directly connected with the
schools. The Highland delegation had
left before this, however, but will be told
that the matter has been reconsidered.
H. M. Coy, the Janitor of the Ockley
Green School, reported that new "rooms
bad been placed under his care and re
quested that his salary be raised from $10
a month to $15 according to the recently
adopted xcale of Janitors' wages. Mr. Coy
Is an elderly man of true Rip "Van Winkle
appearance, with flowing beard and all
. "He looks like Rip Van Winkle, but he's
done a lot -of work out there and I think
he should have the raise," said one of the
directors In an undertone to the chair
man. Accordingly the board decided that
the Janitor was entitled to the higher pay
from last October.
Suddenly there was a telephone call for
Mr. Rlgler. "All right, I'll be. up there
quick." replied he- "Is the first round
over? How is It going?" cried the direc
tors with one voice, lor they had not for
gotten that a red-hot prizefight was
about to begin.
"As I understand that you gentlemen
wish to attend the mill I. think, the meet
ing had better adjourn," said Chairman-
Williams. Mr. Rlgler haa aireaay so
journed and the others hastily followed.
Mrs. Sltton. the lady member of the board,
has not been present for several meetings
on account of sickness and the sessions
are taking on the appearance of a stag
party. As the directors left the City Hail
each shyly kept an eye on the others as
ho went around a different corner, for
a prizefight has attractions for even
such dignified persons as School Directors.

Bold, impudent English sparrows and

why the birds have evinced such a sud

nn.fact was easily settled. The birds
could not he received as members of the
Hhrnrv. however strong tneir political
"pull" might be. So It was decided that
these domestic friends would not cease
1 their lndlcnation meetings until a special
department pertaining to bird lore was
devoted to them In the Library build
ing. This was done yesterday through the
kindness and happy thought of Miss Mary
Frances" Isom, the librarian, and Ross
Nicholas and H. Bohlan, members of the
John Burroughs Society.
Photographs of different birds will be
mounted and placed on one of tho li

will be given a list of books concerning
the habits of birds. Some of these books
are in the circulation department, and can
be taken home, while other books may
be consulted In the reference department.
Yesterday people admired several inter
esting photographs, received from Mr.
Bohlan. which were on view on a bulletin
board in the lending department of the

act of feeding one of her young, while a
little chick, with his expectant mouth

to Oregon. For Instance, the list says
that our feathered visitors this month
will be: Western bluebirds, violet green
swallows. Audubon's warblers. Rufous
humming birds, GambeTs sparrows. West

The Western blue birds ought to be here

POINTS YIELDED IMPORTANT.
Families of .Armenian Immigrants
May No tv Join Them.
WASHINGTON. March 9. The State
Department has not been fully, informed
of the concessions obtained from the Turk
ish government by Mr. Lelshman, as re
ported from Constantinople. The Turkish
government has up to this declined to rec
ognise medical diplomas or even those Is
sued to graduates from American Insti
tutions in Turkey, a fact which naturally
greatly diminished their usefulness.
A more Important concession from a
humanitarian point Is that respecting the
wives and. children of naturalized Arme
nians. The Turkish government hereto
fore held, that the wife of a Turkish citi
zen who is naturalized In America, does
not by that act become herself an Ameri
can. International law admits the right
of the woman to share the conditions of
her husband and, while our Government
has not set up the claim that under our
laws the wife becomes naturalized by the
husband's act. yet it has contended that,
under the principle of the International
law above referred to, the Turkish gov
ernment was not Justified In detaining
these, women In Turkey. As for the child
ren, even under our own law they could
not be claimed as American citizens un
less they were actually residents in Amer
ica when their father was naturalized,
therefore the concession of the Turkish
government on these, points is consider
able. The recognition of American education
al, charitable and religious establishments
will greatly enlarge their usefulness and
add much to their security, for there Is no
question of their claim-to military protec
tion from the Turkish government, if they
are threatened in times of-riot

Fibroid Tumors Cured.
A distressing; case of -Fibroid Tumor,
which; baffled the skill of Boston doctors.
Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, Mass., in
the following letter tells how she was
cured, after everything else failed, by
Lydia E Pinkharrifs Vegetable Compound
Sirs. Hayes' First Xetter Appealing to Mrs. Finkham for Help :
"Dear Mrs. Pinkham: I have been under Boston doctors' treat
ment for a long time without any relief. They tell me I have a fibroid
tumor. I cannot sit down .without great pain, and the soreness extends
up my spine. X have bearing-down pains both back and front. My ab
domen is swollen, and I have had flowing spells for three years. My ap
petite isnot good. I cannot walk or be on my feet for any length of time.;
"The symptoms of Fibroid Tumor given in your little book 7.c
curately describe my case, so I write to you for advice." (Signed) Mrs.
& R Hates, 252 Dudley Sfe, (Roxbury) Boston, Mass.
Note the result of Mrs. Pinkham's advice al
though she advised Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, to take
her medicine which she knew would help her--her
letter contained a mass of additional instruc- -tions
as to treatment, all of which helped to bring 7
about the happy result. I
"Dear Mrs. PixiciLur: Sometime ago I wrote to you describ
ing my symptoms and asked your advice, x ou replied, and I followed
all your directions carefully, and to-day I am a well wqman.
" The use of !Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound entirely
expelled the tumor and strengthened my whole system.-' I can walk
".Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is worth. five dol
lars a drop. I advise all women who are afflicted with tumors or
female trouble of any kind to give it a faithful trial" (Signed) Mrs; .
E. F. Hayes, 252 Dudley Sfc, (Roxbury) Boston, Mass. .
Mountains of gold could not purchase such testimony or take
the place of the health and happiness which Iiydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound brought to Mrs. Hayes. ,
Such testimony should bQ accepted by all women as convincing
evidence that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound stands
without a peer as a remedy for all the distressing ills of women; all
ovarian troubles; tumors; inflammations; ulceration, falling and dis
placements of the womb; backache; irregular, suppressed or painful
menstruation. Surely; the volume and character of the testimonial let
ters we are daily printing in the newspapers can leave no room for doubt.
Mrs. Hayes at her above address will gladly answer any letters
which sick women may write for fuller information about her illness.
Her gratitude to .Mrs. Finkham and Iiydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound is so genuine and. heartfelt that she thinks no trouble is loo
great for her to take in return for her health and happiness.
Truly is it said that it is Iiydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound that is curing so many women, and no other medicine ; don't for
get this when some druggist wants to sell you something else.
