Secretary Garrison explained that
his decision was influenced by the fact
that in developing new ammunition
plants, although under private owner
ship, the officers would be performing
a service of vital importance to the
United States Government.
This question of developing more
factories." he said, "may mean the dif
ference between success and disaster
to the country. These men are en
gaged in installation of machinery to
make guns and ammunition. The mere
superintendence of plants already in
stalled can be done by less expert men."

(Special.) Newell Dwight Hillis by an
address before 30oa Chautauquans at

almost an hour and three-quarters. The

Dr. Hillis decried the trouble in Eu
rope as an "iron ore" war. He in
sisted that the conflict was the result,
direct or indirect, of the playing out
of the iron deposits of Germany, and
that it had been predicted years ago
that when the great iron deposits of
Germany gave out that a general mix

the Kaiser's forces at an early stage

Mr. Hillis' "America of Tomorrow"
is the dream of a Pacific civilization,
the development of the great Pacific
Coast sections from Alaska to the far
south, which will evolve naturally
when the Panama Canal works its way
out. The Pacific country, according
to the noted divine, will be the center
of all modern civilization, including the
European countries as well as this con
tinent. The West is predicted as the great
farm of the world and the country as
boasting of 00,000.000 people, all
happy, prosperous, contented. Chris
Dr. Hillis gave an astounding array
of interesting statistics concerning this
country and opened up a new vision
and a realization of the greatness of
the United States among his hearers.
He shoved the whole state of Texas
under the microscope, measured up
Mount Hood and the Columbia with his
Hudson River, sized up the population
and the farm lands of every country
on the face of the globe with the na
tive land, farmed Bill Hanley's 200.000
acre ranch, paved Broadway with an
Oregon fir. shipped 365 trainloads of
potatoes from one small California
farm and performed so many other
mathematical feats Chat he made his
big audience feel ashamed that they
hadn't shouted the glory of the West
from their housetops.
In closing Dr. Hillis made an elo
quent plea for a better manhood and
womanhood. He eulogized Abraham
Lincoln and emphasized the duty of
the country above all else to manu
facture manhood, to turn every man
into a great soul. "it a only five min
utes after sunrise in the - future of
America," Eaid the speaker.
Representative W. C. Hawley was
the forum-hour speaker at 11 o'clock
on "Rural Credits." Mr. Hawley is a
memDer or the rural credits commit
tee of Congress. He traced the growth
of the rural credits plan in other
countries, explained its workings and
impressed upon his hearers that in the
plan lay not only the salvation of the
farmer, but the only scheme that
would result in keeping boys and girls
on the farm.

Confidence n the ability of Governor
Wlthycombe to solve the Oregon

In a satisfactory manner, and reitera

Governor that a special sesnion of the
Legislature to consider the question la
not necessary at this time, are set
forth today In additional letters re
ceived at the executive's office from
members of the state's legislative body.
Hxcerpts from the communications
W. Ialr Thompson. Takevlew, President
of the Senate To my mind a special session
of the Legislature la not necessary to take
car rf the land grant question. It will
be plenty of time to call a special Milon
after ConsTvas has convened and acted and
we have learned whether It has passed over
any duty to the state. If at the opening of
the Kail session of Congress a law snuuta tre
enacted nut tin a uit to the Ptste of Oregon
some right or duty In conr.erlon with the ap
position or tie crant lands, then the nressit v
for immediate action ojr the Legislature
could be considered. tTnder no consldera
Hon should a seasion be called for the pur
pose of attempting to buy these grant lands
for the state, as seems to have been pro
posed by certain Impractical gentlemen. The
great rlerldrat um Is to have these land de
veloped and turned Into honvs. which will
not be accomnltshed with either state or
Federal ownership thereof.
Mr. Hollla Give Opinion.
W. H. Mollis. Senator, of Forest Grove-
While I am ready at any time to devote
whatever time may be necessary In a spe
cial session of the Legislature to memorial
ize Congress or submit such resolution ex
pressing the will of the people of Oregon.
or to consider propositions for the amend
ment to the constitution to enable the state,
if after due investigation it is thought wise
to make an effort to take over the land
grant from the Oregon A California Rail
road Company, yet I do not believe that the
people of the state think the matter of suf
ficient Importance to Justify a special ses
sion at this time. ... 1 believe the
state will reap as great a profit from the
sale of the land by the railroad company
direct to the settler In increased aasessable
value. In added livestock and other property
Interests, through the actual settlement on
these lands, a though the state bought It
st an acre and resold at '. 7 or
S10 an acre, or at such price as might be
considered a reasonable value.
W. J. Vinton. Senator, of McMlnnvIne I
can see: no reason vhr an extra session
of the Legislature should be called. 1 am I
willing to leave the proposition to you ana
our delegation In Congress. Yon can count
on my assisting you In your plans for th
development of the state.

when Senator laot, fif Oregon, first

Although plana for the Portland build

cities, where land Is high, sites are
scarce, where the business section la

The old type of Federal building was
designed to be a monument aa well as
a Government office building. The new
type la designed primarily for use.
The new Idea has had the approval
of Assistant Secretary Newton and of
Secretary McAdoo. the former having
direct Jurisdiction over the construction
of tiovernment buildings.

other Federal 'buildings In accordance
