Are You a Knocker?
Yes, YOU arc a "knocker" if you do not thiiik and speak well of your fellow-citizens,
your city, your state and your country.
YOU are a " knocker ' if fear and folly and foulness are more real and more evident
to you than courage and good sense and cleanliness.
YOU arc a "knocker" if you voice an ominous croak or savage snarl against every
upward and forward movement that is proposed in your community.
YOU arc a "knocker" if you protest against the building of a railroad bridge across
the "Willamette River you are so jealous of individual benefit you fail to sec that
the best interests of the entire community are served by such a structure. If
"knockers" had had their own dismal way, Portland today woidd be without a
bridge across the Willamette River.
YOU are a "knocker" if you call Oregon the ""Wcbfoot" or "Mossback" state. You
arc a "knocker" if you do not appreciate our splendid climate, our beneficent rains
and all our other natural advantages, and do not speak proudly of them at all times
and in all places.
U are a "knocker" if you cry down and belittle every new enterprise that is pro
posed, because you think you have discovered "graft" and "dishonesty" back of
YOU are a "knocker" if you do not believe and say that our city and state offer the
greatest possible inducement to capital to invest in industrial and commercial en
terprise. YOU arc a "knocker" if you disparage successful enterprises and whiningly complain
that such are monopolized by the "rich," and that "the people" never have an op
portunity to share in the profits of lucrative, legitimate enterprise.
When, for any reason, success and prosperity do not attend commercial and industrial
enterprise, YOU arc a "knocker" of the 33rd degree if you say "I TOLD YOU SO!"
YOU are a hopeless "knocker" if you do not know that even the unsuccessful attempt
to use our vast natural resources and stimulate industrial .activity is a vital and in
spiring contribution to progress compared with your mournful and abortive con
clusions. Are You a "Knocker?"

Difference Between France
and Germany Radical.
GERMANY HAS ADVANTAGE
She Champions Equality of Nations
in Morocco and Wins Support of
Neutral' Powers Interna
tional Control oT Police.
ALGECIRAS. Jan. 24.-Thc confidential
exchanges now going on among the rep
resentatives of the powers in the Moroc
can conference disclose the extreme dif
ficulty of arranging an agreement that
both France and Germany would accept.
The German delegates put forward the
attractive principle of disinterestedness
and equal lights for all countries. The
French delegate?, on the other hand,
maintained that France cajinot be disin
terested. They affirm that, having fol
lowed an active policy in Morocco for
eight years and having obtained numer
ous advantages. France should not now
be asked to. take the same position as all
the rest of the world.
The real struggle, however, is over the
political future of Morocco. France
would rather withdraw from the confer
once than tic up the political destiny of
Morocco by international control. The
French delegates appear to realize that
the current of the conference is against
them, because neutral powers such as the
United States lean toward the Idea of
disinterested equality rather than toward
France's special geographical and histor

The conference today accepted all the
articles of the report of the committee on
"contraband arms, and passed to the con
sideration of economic questions. The
Spanish delegation, as previously agreed
upon, presented all the preliminary pro
posals submitted today. The conference
will meet in committee of the whole to
morrow to examine the economic project.
REFUSES TO BE -"EGGED ON
France Will Act Aaint Venezuela
PARIS. Jan. 24. Ministerial circles here
are much annoyed over the published re
ports relative to France's alleged hesita
tion and nervousness regarding the Vene
zuelan question. A highly placed official
of the Foreign Office today protested
energetically against the statements made
on the subject, saying:
"France has always been and still is
determined to obtain the fullest satisfac
tion for past and present affronts from
Venezuela. She, however, will select her
own time for action, and will not stir up
the present wasp's nest to which Caatro
has shown the way until her general pol
icy leaves her free to do so.

Grooves In Indian Arrows.
In making the Indian arrow three
small undulating1 grooves are cut on
the shaft, running down to the head from
the lower end of the feathers. This has
attracted the attention of some of the
ethnologists, who gave the matter consid
erable study and wisely concluded that
the little lines were made for the blood to
run through, or that they represented
An old Omaha who had the reputation
of being very skillful in cutting the
grooves In arrow shafts was called by
the chief to do that work for him on
some arrows he was making. The chief
himself was a fine arrow-maker, but he
recognized the skill of the old man in
this particular line. While the work was
In progress the chiefs son. who had
reached the inquisitive age. and was look

asked. "Venerable man. why are you mak

The chief gave a hearty laugh, and said:
"Father, telt him. for he will be Vnaking
arrows himself some day, and he should
"Every sapling." answered the old man.
"out of which the arrow Is made has
some defect, however faultless It may
appear to be. The good atrowmaker takes
a great deal of pains to smooth out and
straighten the Imperfections by oiling and
heating. But the wood. In time, will
spring back because of Its Inherent de
fects, unless these grooves are cut in the
shaft soon after seasoning and straightening."
