M FROM EUROPE
A. H. Devers Returns From
Tour of the Continent.
GREATLY ENJOYS HIS TRIP
Bays Municipal Ownership of Kail
ways and Street Hallways In
Europe Has Proved
A. H. Devers returned to'. Portland last
'-evening after spending four months vis
iting different countries In Europe. Mr.
Devers, who left Portland in December,
met Mrs. Devers and daughter Mabel
in Berlin. Mrs. Devers and their daughter
accompanied Mr. Devers to New York
on the return trip, where they will re
main until May before coming to Port
land. "I enjoyed every minute of the time I
was in Europe," said Mr. Devers last
night. "We visited nearly every country in
Europe, enabling us to form an intelli
gent Idea of the success and shortcom
ings of the municipal and governmental
ownership of street and Continental rail
roads. In fact, we found very few short
comings in the railroads and railways
that were controlled by municipal or gov
"I came to the conclusion, through my
Observations, that municipal ownership
of street railways in Europe has proved
Ho be a great success. In the cities where
the lines were controlled by private in
dividuals the fares were higher and the
'service very poor. The cities that own
their own systems not only reduce the
iares and give the better service, but have
succeeded in obtaining considerable reve
nue from them which has been used to
Jower the ratio of taxation.
Germans Excel in Opera.
"We made it an especial point to at
tend the operas in nearly all the cities
We visited. I will say that as far as
jpcenlc effects are concerned the Germans
are far advanced of the American theat
rical managers. I think, however, that
'the Italians "have the most sympathetic
'and beautiful voices. The French operas
jsv-ere also excellent.
"One of the things that greatly im
pressed me was the begging of the Itali
ans. It seemed as though everyone we
fimet expected something. But all those
who approached us were willing to do
eomething. I remember one time in Rome
we went driving. A little boy, elegantly
dressed, who looked as though he came
Trom an aristocratic family, followed our
'buggy for fully a half an hour, stopping
every" few seconds to turn handsprings
Tor our amusement. "When we gave him a
lew cents he was perfectly satisfied.
Conditions Bad in England.
"The poorer classes of people seemed to
"be more prosperous In Continental Eu
rope than in England," continued Mr.
Devers. "In England the conditions are
ykry bad. The drink habit seems to be
!the great failing of the English people,
that is, among the working classes. "We
saw very little drunkenness until we got
to England. There the streets were filled
with people under the influence of Intoxi
cants. London Is th great financial cen
ter of the world. It is far ahead of New
"York in that respect. The wealth seems
"So be massed in the hands of a few, which
no doubt accounts for the poverty.
"Europe is a great country, and we vis
ited some wonderful and beautiful cities,
but nevertheless I am glad to get to Amer
ica and Portland. The European cities
"keep their streets a little cleaner than
we do in Portland, but Oregon is good
enough for me. Oh, say," said Mr. Dev
ers, "I want to tell you that I saw and
ate some of our famous Hood River ap
ples in Berlin. I saw them In front of a
fruit stand, and they instantly reminded
me of Oregon. I inquired and found out
that they came from Hood River. You
bet they looked mighty good to all of us."
"Work Soon to Be Begun.
CHEHALIS, "Wash.. April 191 (Special.)
