' 4& U What Is a Knocker? A "KNOCKER" is a pessimistic coward whose fears and forebodings, whose malicious -;v innuendos - and dire prophecies retard the natural, wholesome progress of a community. A "KNOCKER" ii afraid of the shadows cast hy his own warped understanding, and makes it his business to poison other minds with word pictures of the "graft," the "crookedness," the "monopoly," the , . : "failure," "wreck" and " "ruin" which he thinks he sees on all sides. Why Are You a Knocker? Perhaps you were born so; Perhaps you achieved the distinction through years of assiduous practice ; Perhaps it was thrust upon you by associates who "knock" habitually, per petually, incessantly. When YOU SEND your money to other states for goods, it will be a long time in finding its way back. 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 its inception. 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.

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 ical paramountcy. France therefore may strive for a nega tive result so far as political questions go. accepting fully commercial cqunlity and joining in the effort to reach just economic conclusions, but resisting sug gestions for the internationalization of any or the. public services of Morocco. Germany will press for the internation alization of the police, a semi-military body, which is to exercise a powerful gen eral control. 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 When Ready. 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. "France will not act at any one's bid ding. She will choose her own hour and moment, and then will act as beseems her with absolute resolve to have her rights respected." To a question whether a blockade had been ordered a direct negative was given. A dispatch from L'Orient says that or ders have been given to the arsenal there to dispatch large quantities of ammuni tion to Fort de France. Island of Martin ique, for the Atlantic division of the French fleet now cruising in Venezuelan waters. ROSEBERY'S SON IS ELECTED Irish Fall to Beat Him Liberal Ma jority Growing. LONDON. Jan. 24.

A chlnook swept over thl portion of the country Monday night and today removing almost every' vestige of snow, except in the can yons and on the north slopes.

Grooves In Indian Arrows. Southern "Workman. 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 lightning. 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 ing on with wide-eyed Interest; suddenly asked. "Venerable man. why are you mak ing those crooked lines?" The chief gave a hearty laugh, and said: "Father, telt him. for he will be Vnaking arrows himself some day, and he should know." "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." No Buying Presents Back. Atchison Globe.
