OPTIMIST VIEWS WAR
jzsd of coxscniPTiosr system and
Wallace McCaraant, at Transportation
Club Meeting, Predicts Victory
of American Trade.
The European war undoubtedly will
prove a blessing in disguise, declared
Wallace McCamant. in substance, be
fore the Portland Transportation Club
at the Multnoman Hotel yesterday aft
ernoon. . Mr. McCamant enumerated among
the probable benefits the world will
receive, following the conflict: The cur
tailment of "the terrible curse of mil
itarism"; "elimination of the conscrip
tion system," and "a limitation of arma
ment to the size necessary to preserve
. Mr. McCamant's address was on the
subject, "The War From the Viewpoint
of an Optimist."
He discussed first the probable ef
fects of the war upon American com
merce and American industry. Amer
ican securities and American exchange
will be discounted, American shipping
will be : hampered on account of the
absence of . American' ships from the
high seas, and America as a Nation
temporarily will be a debtor instead
of a creditor.
But he predicted that within a short
time the balance of trade will swing
the other way and the European coun
tries, through the heavy' purchases of
foodstuffs that they necessarily must
make, will become indebted to the
United States. , Better prices will pre
vail for farm products and the Amer
ican producers will be substantially en
riched, he said.
He took a cheerful view of the war
through the progress and development
that have followed wars of the past. He
emphasized that the hardships and suf
ferings of the present struggle are
not to be compared with those endured
by the patriots who fought in the
"So, with all its horrors and all Its
devastation, I am sure that this present
war will leave us many benefits. I
am convinced that there is more good
in It than harm.
"When the smoke of conflict clears
away militarism will have been swept
out of power, royalty probably will
have been abolished and the republican
form of government extended over a
E. A, Muncey, general agent for the

at the meeting. H. E. Vernon, gen

the eulogy for the late C. A. Pettibone,
general agent for the Wabash, who
died two weeks ago.
BISHOP-ELECT IS SILENT
Xo Word Yet Received From Dean
Sumner as to Action on Call.
Dean W. T. Sumner, of Chicago, who
has been chosen Episcopal bishop of
the Oregon diocese, up to last night had
not responded to the call, and Rev. A.
A. Morrison announced that he had no
intimation when an acceptance or decli
nation would be received.
Dean Sumner was chosen to succeed
the late Bishop Scadding, but it is
understood Chicago is making an effort
to retain Dean Sumner in his present

Len Powers, the popular Portland
lightweight, who wore the Multnomah
Club colors before he turned profes

JOHN B. SAWYER. EX-rORTtAND
MAN. SAYS GERMANS ARB LESS.
Without Help From Japan, Enarland's
Troops Exceed Foes, Bat Treat AU
Prisoners Well, He Writes.
England's strength In the Orient ex
ceeds that of Germany's even without
aid from Japan, writes John B. Sawyer,
Vice-Consul-General at Hongkong,
China, to his brother-in-law, Henry Mc
Connell, of the United States Attorney's
office. Mr. Sawyer formerly was in
the United States immigration Office
in Portland and his letter dated Aug
ust 24 has Just reached Portland.
Mr. Sawyer writes:
"Your letter of July 30 arrived last
Saturday by the Empress of Russia aft
er the quickest trip ever made across.
She is the last Canadian Pacific Rail
road - boat that will cross the Pacific
until the war is over and she will now
be painted slate-colored and sent out
to make trouble. We do not look for
any bombardment of Hongkong. The
'extras' now are saying that Japan has
declared war on Germany. Even with
out Japan entering the conflict Eng
land's strength in the Orient exceeded
that of Germany and she also had the
help of the Asiatic squadrons of France
"Nearly all the Germans have left
the colony and there used to be a good
many. Those who remain are prisoners
on an island in the harbor or. in case
they are women, in a hospital on the
Peak, or else have signed an under
taking not to commit any hostile actor
go outside of certain bounds or spread
any rumors regarding the fortunes of
"I think the German prisoners here
number 80 now, most of whom have
been taken from vessels calling here.
The British have been very considerate
of the Germans and have treated hem
very well. I have a greater respect for
the British than ever. They act coolly,
reasonably, dispassionately under cir
cumstances where people of many races
go off their heads. Where are the
peoplo who said there would be no
more war? A great English scientist,
one of the greatest scientists of the
world, said shortly before his death
that as a result of all his study and re
search he had come to the conclusion
that tha human race had made no ad
vance in the fundamental things of
character since the earliest history.
Aren't we a lot of Huns, Vandals and
Tartars after all? America is the only
country that settles things by the pow
er of mind and I doubt if she would be
in a position to boast of this If it were
not 'for a wonderful President." .
