vlalted a similar exposition, it is esti
mated that In the two weeks that tha
ahow was m jrorr-ss 150.000 persons
paid admissions to the Coltslum. whero
the exhibits were arranged. Of these.
I am eure that at leaat 7S.000 heard the
lectures on Oregon and Washington given
; iy the agenta of our road. We distributed
I thousands upon thousand of pieces
literature to oeoole who were interested

r-robable future Investments. t
People Slake Inquiries,
That people did not take our adver
tising matter for the mere purpose of
looking at the pictures and reading tha
dein-lntve. portions for the entertain
mni thev offered. Is evidenced by the
fact that wherever one went he was sure
to see others eacerly scanning the pages
studying the Illustrations and making In.
The good effecta of tha show will
continue to be felt In this state for many
years. We have already received many
InrjtiirV and expect to hear from Inter
estej Kantern people every day.
"Arrar.gnvnts already are under way
fnr another and even more extensive ex
position next yenr. A committee of Chl
cf cltixens will take It In charge. Tha
horns last Tt-ar and this year were
handled by the Chicago Tribune, but the
affair has outgrown the resources of the
raper to handle It. so they have con
sented, since they have Inaugurated It
as a permanent successful feature, to
allow t!ie public committee to manage
It." .
Orf-gon Has Four Booths.
Oregon this year was represented In
fotir booths. One was the Southern Pa
cific and O. R. X. Co. exhibit, th-j
second wss the Great Northern exhlhlt.
the third the banner exhlhlt of tho Rogue

show was due to eclipse that of 190.
Hi they wrote to Mr. McMurray and Mr.
McMurray nent East. He aaw at a
glance the situation. The Oregon booths
were lratrd In one of the most fre

They brought Into display thousands of
Oregon apples and other products. Sur
mounting tbe booths were four panoramic
pictures, the first showing Portland and
the surrounding country, the second
showing I'mpqiia Vall-y. the third a sec

fourth the Hood River Valley. The
Khole made a pretty picture that at
tracted aide attention.
Many Westerners at Show.

In the opinion of Representative
elect LarTerty, Oregron Is certain to
get three Representatives In Coneresa
as a result of tha census just an
nounced. He also believes that tha
new apportionment bill will pass Con
gress In time for the Oregon Legisla
ture to act In the matter of redlstrlct-
Ing tha state at the session which meets
at Salem next month.
"That Oregon will elect three Rep
resentatives at the next election la a
foregone conclusion," said Mr. LarT
erty last night. "The new apportion
ment bill will probably pass Congress
In time for tha Oregon Legislature to
re-district the state during the session
which meets in January. Otherwise
the extra Representative we will be
entitled to will be elected at large In
"Tbe last apportionment act was
passed by Congress January 16. 1901,
following the census of 1900. If Con
gress acta as promptly on the census
of 1910, the new apportionment act
should become a law not later than
January It, 1911. The Legislatures of
the various states convene in January
and generally remain In session for
several weeks. If the new apportion
ment act shall be passed by tha middle
of January or thereabouts. It will glva
the Legislatures ample time In which
to re-dlstrlct the states at their ap
proaching sessions. No doubt Congress
will take this fact Into .consideration
nd pass the apportionment bill early
next month.
Itcdlstrlctlngr Is Question.
"No one can foretell Just how our
Legislature will divide up tha state In
order to make the three districts.' One
arrangement will suit me as well as
another, and should X make good ray
first term, and In consequence be a
candidate for re-election In 1912, I
would Just an toon be a candidate at
large as to be a candidate from any
given district.
It is probable, however, that tha
coming Legislature will create three
separate districts. Many favor putting
all of Eastern Oregon into one district.
that Is to say, all the territory lying
east of the summit of the Cascade
Mountains. This would result in de
taching Multnomah, Columbia and
Clatsop counties from the present sec
ond district. It would also necessitate
the cutting of Klamath and Lake coun
ties off from the present first district
and adding them to the Eastern Oregon
district. Should this arrangement be
followed, Multnomah, Columbia and
Clatsop would doubtless form one dis
trict, while the present first district
minus Klamath and Lake counties
would form the other, district. This
would give the Eastern Oregon dis
trict a population of 1-C.SS9: the dis
trict composed of Multnomah, Colum
bia and Clatsop. 252. 9o7. and the pres
ent first district, 76,936.
. Federal Act Flexible.
That this arrangement, or any other
similar division that may be decided
upon by the Legislature, will conform
to the requirements of the Federal Ap
portionment Act, there is no doubt in
my mind. There is no probability that,
the present ratio of apportionment will
ba reduced to such an extent as to de
prive us of a third Congressman. Ap
portionment acts heretofore have sim
ply given to each state a given number
of Representatives. It has always
been further provided that the districts
should be composed of compact and
contiguous territory containing as near
ly as practicable an equal number of
nhabltants. But many of the suites
now have districts where the population
varies to a greater extent than in tha
new districts that are proposed for Ore
gon. The present Eighth Missouri dis-
rtct has. according to the Congres-
lonal directory, only 142.364, while the
Tenth Missouri district has 265,440.
It should be borne in mind that Con
gress has never required that a given
district should contain a given number
of Inhabitants, but In fixing the number
of Representatives that wltl be allowed
to any state a uniform rule Is required
by the Constitution to be followed.
Therefore, each state Is allowed by
Congress a certain number of Represen
tatives, based on a specified number of
Inhabitants, or major fraction of that
number. But It Is left entirely with
he State Legislatures to fix the boun
daries of the districts. Congress only
requires that the distrlcta shall contain
as nearly as practicable an equal num
ber of Inhabitants.
Ratio Kow One to 193,167.
"Ten years ago Congress allowed each
tate one Representative for each 193,- j
17 Inhabitants, or major fraction of
that number. Should that ratio ba de
creased so as to allow only one Repre
sentative for each 260,000 Inhabitants,
Oregon would still get three Congress
men. However, there Is little probabil
ity that the ratio will be decreased at
1L Several Eastern states have not in
creased In population In the past 10
ears, Iowa for example, and no state
ill want to have Its representation
reduced. For these reasons I say thera
Is no chance that Oregon will be left
Ith only two Representatives.
"A Representative from Portland
must always worn zor me interests oz
he entire, state. W Ith the re-dis
tricting of the state the Representa
tive from the district that includes
Multnomah will be largely a helper of
the Representatives from both the
other districts. The prosperity of all
the towns and cities near the mouth
of the Columbia depends upon the
prosperity of Eastern Oregon and
Southern Oregon. The state needs to
have Its irrigation work and river
and harbor improvements pushed sys
tematically for years to come, and
the land grants and public lands
must be opened up to settlers.
"There is also some talk of putting
Multnomah County Into a district by
Itself. There could be no particular
objection to thts, as It haa sllgntly
mora tnan one-third of the population
of the state. Those favoring this plan
advocate putting Clackamas and
Washington Counties in tha Eastern
Oregon district and adding Columbia
and Clatsop Counties to the present
First district. While I should regret
seeing any of the counties at present
In this district detached, I should de
rive some pleasute at seeing Portland
and Multnomah County given the honor
of being made a district. Tbe Leglsla-
