Delegates tom Oregon. Washington.
California, Idaho, Wyoming and.
Canada Plan to Meet Issue
With Canal Opening.
Oregon. Washington, California. Ida
ho, Wyoming and British Columbia are
represented at the Western Immigra
tion Conference, which opened yester
day at the Multnomah Hotel and the
object of which is to devise ways and
means for handling the immigration
question In such a manner that the
industrial development of the territory
that will be most affected by the open
ing of the Panama Canal will be along
Hues that will not be detrimental to
the American working man.
Immigration from Southern Europe
and Japan will be dicussed. Mexico is
also furnishing thousands of immi
grants to the United States, owing to
the unsettled and turbulent political
conditions there, while from Canada
are coming those who find the climate
too severe or are unable to ma,ke a liv
ing there, and these phases of the ques
tion will be considered at today's and
The object of the conference will not
be to devise means of excluding the
foreigner, but to have only those come
who can make a living here, and to
have them come under such conditions
that they will be elevated to the stan
dard of the American laborer, rather
than to bring- down the wage and the
living standard already existing.
The speakers yesterday were W. R.
Trotter, of Vancouver, B. O., who told
of his work in England in directing
immigration to Canada in to the proper
channels; P. W. Dowler, of Seattle, who
told of the movement into this coun
try from Canada and of the smuggling
of Chinese across the border; and E.
P. Marsh, president of the Washington
State Federation of Labor, who dis
cussed the immigration problem in gen
eral. Yesterday's session was otherwise
taken up with the getting acquainted of
the delegates,- most of whom were
strangers to each other and the ap

charm and absorbing interest. Last
night she came to the Heillg in "Bella
Donna," a complete theatrical machine
made out of Hichen's novel of that

play, and it is eminently fitting that
the title role should be entrusted to
an actress like the gifted Nazimova.
No actress other than she could play
It. Like her art and personality it Is
bizarre and exotic.
Fagan has stripped the play "Bella

the sensational story, verging often up
on the impossible, of a beautiful wo
man's effort to poison her husband by
putting sugar of lead In his coffee, so
that she may not be burdened In her
intrigue witli an Egyptian Bluebeard

has a collection of femininity. The

Capital impersonations are those of
