With the Prospects of
To impress upon the visitors at the
ILcwis and Clark Exposition that Port
land Is one o the most Important and
is destined to he one of the largest
cities In. tho "West. Is a task the Port
land Chamber of Commerce has taken
upon Itself. At a meeting of the trustees
of the organization held yesterday. Sam
uel Connell -was appointed chairman of
a committee and authorized to select two
additional members to formulate a plan
in advertise the City of Portland. It is
probable that one of the plans adopted 1
by the committee win De tne oismDuuua
of booklets and pamphlets at the Fair
grounds, which trill contain vivid and au
thentic accounts of the great commer
cial advantages offered in this city.
It was also decided at the meeting to
make a determined effort to secure the
location of the cableship Burnslde at
Portland during the Exposition. It is pro
posed to have the ship anchored some
where near the grounds, so that it can
be visited by all those who come to the
fair. The Burnslde is a vessel used ex
clusively for the laying of cable. For
some time the ship has. been stationed
tt Seattle, but lately has been engaged
In repairing the Alaska cable.
The Burnslde has quite an eventful
history and would prove a very attrac
tive feature for the Exposition. It was
captured from the Spaniards at Manila
fluring the Spanish-American war and for
Eeveral years was used by the United
States Navy- In more recent years, hav
ing been converted into a cableship, it
ha3 been engaged in laying cables among
the Philippine Islands. It Is an Iron ves
sel. 294 feet long and SS feet wide. It is
now under the Jurisdiction of the Signal
Corps of the United States Army.
The framing, of a resolution was au
thorized by the trustees, setting forth the
attitude of the Chamber of Commerce,
favoring establishment of neutral zones
from the ports of North America to those
of Great Britain and Ireland and the
continent of Europe within which zones
steamships and sailing vessels in thn con

KEYSTONE STATE WILL COME
Appropriates Fourth Largest Sum,
and Will Erect Building.
Pennsylvania will have $50,000 to spend
at the Lewis and Clark Fair. Yesterday
the House of the Legislature passed the
Senate bill appropriating that amount,
and the Governor is favorable to the ex
penditure. The money will all be spent
in providing a .state building and in en
tertainment. The building will cost about $30,000 leav
ing an entertainment fund of an equal
amount. This will bo spent lavishly and
the Pennsylvania building will probably
become a social center at tho Fair. Penn
sylvania always provides a Btate build
ing and entertains at the large exposi
tions, so that the hospitality of the state
has become known far beyond its con
fines. Pennsylvania has the fourth largest
Mate appropriation made for the Ex
position, Oregon leading, California com
ing next and Washington third. - New
York, if present plans are fulfilled, will
havo a larger appropriation than Penn
sylvania, $57,500. Thirty-five thousand dol
lars has already been appropriated and
bills before tho Legislature now provide
for $22,500 more.
Of the Atlantic States, Connecticut
seems to be the only one which has not
been able to convince the Legislature
readily to build here. An appropriation
bill for" $30,000 has not yet been passed,

Burnslde streets. Hunsaker accuses his
wife of unfaithfulness and names Scripps
At the opening of the trial, "W. T.

dulged in a sensational speech, charging
Hunsaker with employing cheap detec
tives to get evidence which could be dis
torted into testimony of a significant
character- against his wife. Counsel said
Scripps was missing, and ho wanted him
badly as a witness for the defense. "He
has been spirited away," said Mr.
Vaughn, "and by whom I would like to
know?" he asked, looking inquiringly at
Hunsaker. The attorney demanded that
the trial be continued until Scripps' at
tendance could be secured. Tho court
declined to postpone the trial, and Mr.
Vaughn resumed his address concerning
cheap detectives. "Hunsaker hired one
to take a room in the house," ho shouted.
"iL Black, and when the plans were all
laid one night he rushed downstairs call
ing for help, and others rushed in. and
all this was done to manufacture evidence
against Mrs. Hunsaker."
The attorney went on in this way for
considerable length and said the whole
scheme was a Job against his client, who
was a good woman.

MASSING WITNESSES THE CAUSE
Why Investigation of G. B. Thomas
Has Been Delayed.
The failure of the Sheriff to find Robert
Wakefield and C. N. Berry, important
witnesses against G. B. Thomas, member
of the Port of Portland Commission, has
delayed the investigation of the case by
District Attorney Manning. Wakefield
is the one who is said to have given
Thomas the bribe of $500 in installments
of $250. Berry was bookkeeper for Wake
field and the money Is said to have passed
through his hands. Last week Wakefield

Lieutenant Tells of Superiority of
Americans In Many Ways, but
Has Respect for Technical
Skill of 'Germans.
Lieutenant Godfrey L Garden, of the
United States revenue cutter serlvce. ap
peared before an attentive audience at
the Y. M. C A. last night and delivered
his lecture on "The American Invasion
of Europe; or the Race for Commercial
Lieutenant Carden. while an active offi
cer, Is uncommonly well qualified to treat
of commeralallsm through his connection
with the Sc. Louis Fair. Serving as ord
nance officer on the TJ. S. Manning
throughout the Spanish War he was later
assigned to shoro duty. Three years
ago he was assigned to duty on tho staff
of President D. R. Francis, of the St
Louis World's Fair, and by that execu
tive was appointed superintendent of the
Department of Machinery.
In opening Lieutenant Carden empha
sized the high efficiency of American
workmanship as displayed in the war
ships which were engaged in the Spanish
War. He asserted that the European
nationc had expected to find America
totally unprepared for the war. but when
the fight was over it was found that not so
much as a bolt head was missing in tho
construction of the ships. On his main
subject which was superbly illustrated
by stereopticon slides, Llentenant Carden
said in part:
It was my good fortune to be attached, un
der Govcranient orders during the past
three years as a superintendent in th great
machinery department of the St. Louis
World's Fair, and it was la connection with
this service that X was sent abroad to per
sonally visit the great Iron and ateel and
machinery houses, report upon their prod
ucts and secure for exhibit purposes the
latest evidences in mechanical developments.
I visited while abroad, more than 1200
plants and In Germany I visited more than
350. My orders took me as far north as
Stockholm and as for south as Genoa, and
Involved visits to plants In Germany, France,
Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, the Scandi
navian peninsula, and the United Kingdom.
Some of these" plants were large. While
many were small, hut by far the largest of
all was Krupp's.
More than 80,000 men are carried on the
payrolls of the combined Krupp works at Essen,
the Grusonwerlc at Magdeburg, the Qer
mania -works at Kiel, and the plants on the
Rhine, and this means that more than 200.
000 souls, men. women and children, are
dependent on Krupp. In the 90 years that
the Krupp works have been in existence
ruch a thing as a strike has never been
known. Ask the secret, and tie answer is
found in the eminent tact, eklli and wisdom
displayed by the directors. The conditions
prevailing at Essen are as near the mil
lenluxn. almost as It Is possible for one to
imagine. The entire moral environment is
of a wholesome character, and Christianity
Is the matrix and binder which holds the
great Essen district together.
On going thro u eh the great Duorr works
at Dueseldorf, on the Rhine I had one of
my first opportunities to observe shop prac
tice abroad in comparison with shop prac
tice at home. The Suerr works seemed
fairly alive with men, and the work was
carried on for the most part by hand. It
teemed almost Incredible, and specially so,
since so many of the hollers for the Ger
man Navy ore manufactured there. Now,
consider this method of working by hand with
the American notion of shop efSclency
where pneumatic tools are employed, for
through the use of theso pneumatic tools
there is effected a great saving in time,
some think a superiority in work, and sure
ly a saving In expense. A pneumatic tool
has cut a chip nine feet long from a, cor
rugated boiler furnace in 1 hour and 20
minutes. When it comes to riveting up
boilers through ths medium of & pneumaUo
tool one man is able to perform the work
which ordinarily devolves upon several, and
the saving in time is enormous.
The one country that concerns America
today moro than any other is Germany. In
everything pertaining to economics arid eco
nomical practice Germany can almost teach
us the rudiments. Practically everything
known in this country pertaining to the
gas engine came from Germany. At the
great Borsig works, at Tegel. Just outside
of Berlin, arrangements were mode to send
to the Exposition a 1750 horsepower gas
engine, and the contract with the Borslgs
stipulated that when their engine was de
veloping 1750 horsepower the Exposition
should supply 1575 pounds of "anthracite
coal on hour. This Is less than one pound
of coal per horsepower per hour. The man
ufacture of the gas engine is entirely dls-i
unct zrem ut manufacture or me gas
producer. It is out of the Question .to think
of utilizing illuminating gas because of Its
expense, and so the Germans have recourse
to what is known aa poor gas. Assuming
that illuminating gas cost $1 per thousand,
poor gas should cost between S and 14
cents per thousand. what we need in
this country is a producer than con utilize
bituminous cool, and I know of no one
who has come nearer to realizing "this end
than Julius X. Wile, of Rochester., 2f. Y.
Mr. Wile was an engineer officer in the
United States 2avy during the Spanish-
American War, and I met him in Europe
busily at work getUng all possible data
on a "gas producer question.
But If Europe leads us in economics, whsn
it comes to machine tools and machinery
for making machinery America leads the
world. Ten years ago one might have
traveled the length and breadth of the
Rhenish provinces, the great Iron and steel
districts of Germany, and everywhere.

It Is technical education that is putting
Germany where she Is in the world today.
Between 1S00 and 2000 yanng men are be
ing turned out annually from one institu
tion at Charlottenburg alone. They - are
maintaining nearly S000 students at Char
lottenburg, and these young men when
they come out ore trained in the highest
degree in technical knowledge, and as fast
as they graduate they are grabbed up by
the great Iron and steel and machinery
and shipbuilding establishments, and they
are the men who are making Germay what
she is commercially today; and it is hot only
Charlottenburg but Dresden. Muenster and
other institutions which I could name
which are contributing to this skill quota.
The spirit behind all this demand for tech
nical knowledge is the Etaperor. It was
the Emperor who conferred titles and hon
ors on men who distinguished themselves
In commerce. And It is the Emperor who
has insisted that the best should He so-
cured for Germany wherever obtainable.
Every effort and every energy is being
exerted by the Germans today in the inter
est of export trade. After I visited the first
150 machinery houses in Germany I report
ed that I found but two where they did not
speak: English. This will Indicate to what
degree the German prepares himself for
engaging in foreign trade.
American manufacturers can secure all
the foreign trade they want if they wilt
only go after it intelligently. We have had
repeated warnings from men as far-sighted,
for example, as Hon. Frank A. Yonderllp,
late Assistant Secretary cf the Treasury,
who has repeatedly emphasized to our peo
ple that they must advise themselves re

greatest danger lies In blinding ourselves

It ha3 been several weeks since Mrs.
Barth-Judson took leave of tho Spencer

One Sabbath morning the fire in the

sacked, and as a last resort tho sleeping
apartments of the servant were searched.
Here the secret was revealed. Mrs. Barth-
Judson was gone, and In her flight had
