Xext Big Undertaking.
The culmination of a year's note
worthy activities -was celebrated last
night at the banquet, merrymaking and
election of the East Side Business Men's
Club, held in the recently completed
club headquarters at Grand avenue and
East Sixth street.
The entertainment was characterized
In every feature by the directness and
spontaniety of an organization which
has brought to a successful close many
of Portland's most ambitious undertak
ings. - The initiation of the $500,000 in
dustrial loan fund, by which a consid
erable extension of Portland's influence
is to be secured, was made the next un
dertaking of the body.
In order to bring new members into
activity the club's officers were
changed, with the exception of L. M.
Lepper. whose energetic devotion to the
welfare of the body has made him in
valuable as secretary. H. B. Catton
was elected president, and H. S. Camp,
vice-president. Directors for the ensu
ing year are: T. J. Rove, H. O. Baker,
Kenneth O'Loane, H. H. Newhall, C. W.
Meadows and J. Dannells.
A number of speakers were called
upon by Frank B. Egan. who acted as
toastmaster. The attitude of the
speakers - was unformly optimistic all
believing that by a continuation of the
effort which Portland enterprizers have
nut forward a erreat city will result.
A tribute of unusual sincerity and
rrace was paid to the memory of Lean'
der H. Wells, late East Side correspond
ent of The Oregonian, by L. M. Lepper,
associated with him in the past during
many years through a mutual interest
in the development or tne tast oiae.
Tie success of the industrial develop
ment fund which the club is shortly to
launch for the benefit of the city was
assured in a speech by Dan Kellaher,
who drew from the distinction of its
past efforts a description of what the
club may anticipate for the future.
B. B. Piper, managing editor of The
Oregonian, reviewed the progress of
Portland as witnessed by a Journalist.
As a special supplement to the fes
tivities, the banqueters were enter
tained by Frank Branch Riley, who
showed a rare set of Mazama pictures
and memorialized the glories of Ore

LISHED AT CEXTRALIA.
Coin Bnried to Keep Lazy Kin folk
From Getting It, Document Says,

CENTR ALIA. Wash., Jan. 25. (Spe

struction and, as a man of good health
and sound mind, do I, W. F. Bryan, col
ored give and bequeath to the finder
of this will one-half of a half-gallon
glass jug full of gold coin, which lies
buried five feet deep and SO feet east
of the section corner of my old home
stead. The finder must publish this
before any work begins on its recov
ery, but the finder must get another
party to dig for it and the digger gets
one-half. I do this to keep my lazy
klnfolk from getting it. If they make
any fuss about it after it is found, give
them $1 each. There is also another
jucful bnried a few rods west of the
old dwelling house. I can't locate it.
however, as the mark is lost. Dated
this 2d day of October, 1888. (Signed)
W. F. Bryan."
According to an unsigned letter re
ceived by the Centralia Daily Chronicle
yesterday the above testament was
found by the writer under a sill of an
old house on the W. V. Miller home
stead on the east side of the city. It
is apparent that the finder desires to
conceal his identity, and at the same
time fulfill the terms of the will by
publishing the testament. It is expect
ed that the east side will resemble a
-old rush as the result of its publica
tion. Bryan, who Is well remembered by
the old residents of Centralia, died In
the early '90s. Allan Miller, a present
resident of Centralia. was a nephew ot
Mrs. Bryan, who died about six weeks

MEASURE AIDS SUFFRAGE
Resolution Bases Representation on
WASHINGTON. Jan. 25. A resolu
tion for an amendment to the Const!
ution which would base representa
tion in Congress on the actual voting
strength of the various states has been
introduced in the Senate by Senator
I'oindexter. Mr. Polndexter proposes to
amend the second section of the Four
tctnth Amendment to the Constitution
by striking out the word 'male'" where
It occurs. That section of the amend
ment as it now stands recognizes the
principle of employing vouus strength
as a measure of representation in Con
Senator Polndexter asked that this
amendment, together with a second one
introduced by him amending the Fif
teenth Amendment to provide that the
right to vote shall not be denied on
account of sex be referred to the Sen
ate committee on woman suffrage.
Vice-President Marshall ruled that
resolutions for constitutional amend
ments would be referred to the commit
tee on Judiciary, although a motion to
change the reference would be in or
der. Senator Poindexter then asked
unanimous consent that the amend
ments be referred to the committee
on woman suffrage, but Senator James,
of Kentucky, objected.
The effect of Senator Poindexter's
amendment would be to make a reduc
tion of representation effective in
states where women are denied the
right to vote. A complete basis for
representation, under the terms of his
resolution, exists only in the 11 West
ern states in which women enjoy rights
of suffrage Identical with those of
