Portland Navigation Company
Has Two Options.
Steamers Pomona and Oregona
Also Considered for Purchase
by Newlj-'Formed Line.
The Portland Navigation company,
Incorporated April 1 by Dean Vincent,
V. A. Crum and Captain Clyde Raabe,
has purchased the-river steamer Gra

Grikamm to Operate Ffrst.
The Grahamona will be the ftrst
vessel placed in operation by the com
pany. A crew of men is now working
on the vessel making her ready for
service. Captain Raabe is negotiat
ing with the oil companies, and If a
sufficient supply of oil will b avail
able, the-Grahamona will be converted
into an oil burner. Otherwise she
will use coal for fuel.
The route to be traversed by this
vessel has not yet been determined.
Her district of operations, according
to Mr. Vincent, depends upon the de
gree of interest manifested and the
business in passengers and freight of
fered on each of three proposed
routes. One of these is up the Wil
lamette to include Salem, Independ
ence and Albany. If this route is
chosen freight and passengers will be
taken all along the line except at
uregon City.
Other Route Considered.

The main feature is that gold in
he future will be the standard value
tn India and silver will remain a
legal tender with the fixed ratio of 1
rupee for 11,30016 grains of fine gold.
The committee recommended that the
British pounds, which now is rated by
law in India as worth 15 rupees.
hould be made legal tender in In-
ia at the revised rate of 10 rupees.
This provision, however, is not to be
adopted at once because disruption
would ensue in commercial affairs.
For the time being, therefore, gold
imports will continue to control and
will be converted into rupees at the
rate of 15 to the pound.
The reorganization of the Indian
currency system assumes great im
portance because of the huge volume
to which, foreign trade has grown
and the consequent inconvenience in
making payments to and taking pay
merits from the outside world, when
silver, was the only metal that could
be tendered in payment.
The currency report also goes into
the matter of popularizing papter
money in India. A system will be
adopted providing for an Issue of
paper currency with a legal min
imum metallic reserve of 40 per cent
the balance to be based on govern
ment securities. The amount of this
class of paper money necessarily will
be rigid, expanding and contracting
only -as the metallic reserve or gov
ernment securities fluctuate. Such
fluctuations might tend to contract
the currency at the very time when
active trade demanded expansion. To
provide for such seasonal currency
requirements an Issue of paper cur
rency by the presidency banks based
upon commercial paper is to be per
From this outline it will be seen
that India's new system resembles
that In vogue in the United States
because part of the currency is
backed by government bonds and
metal, while the balance is based on
commercial paper and is regulated in
quantity by the needs of commerce.
The pane of 1893, following the
failure of the Barings in London on
account of too much credit to Argen
tina, was accentuated by the British
council for India, which contemplated
to establish the gold standard among
that 400,000. OQO of silver-using peo
pie. The attempt has registered only
a partial success. Gold is used for
bank reserve (high value in small
bulk), while silver-based currency,
with the silver coins, is the money
of circulation. China aims at a sim
ilar plan, and has recently bought
gold n New York.
French Editor Tells of Conduct at

BERLIN. The former German Em
peror William, while at the German
great headquarters in Charleville,
France, in the world war, surrounded
himself with an army of lackeys,
changed his uniform several times a
day and had a strong objection to
any but silk socks, according to a de
scription of his conduct there by the
editor of the Charleville Journal. The
editor, M. Domelier, has just pub

five bombs fell in the neighborhood
of the imperial villa and at another
time the court train was attacked,

several court officials being killed.
In the garden of the 'kaiser s villa

NEW YORK. Judge Augustus
Hand, in the United States district
court, has decided that Rostand's
"Cyrano de Bergerac" is not a pla
giarism, an order in an Illinois fed
eral court to the contrary notwith
standing. Judge Hand's ruling in the
case of Hodgson versus Vroom marks
the end of one of the most extraor
dinary controversies chronicled in
American court records. For a num
ber of years Edmond Rostand, the
French playwright, has been stigma
tized as a plagiarist by a decision of
a federal court in Illinois, and "Cyr
ano de Bergerac," because of its sup
posed plagiarism of an obscure piece
copyrighted by a Chicago stock bro
ker, has been barred from perform

NEW TORK. The skeleton of a
prehistoric deinodon, calculated to be
60.000,000 years old, has been in
stalled in Dinosaur hall at the Amer
ican Museum of Natural History. The
deinodon, which is also known as
terrible-tooth," is described as per-
haps the most e,wif t and powerful
creature of its time.
The skeleton stands 11 feet 5 inches
high and measures 20 feet from the
nose to the tip. of its tail. It is sup
posed to have weighed several times
as much as the largest lion of today.
Dr. W. D. Matthew, curator of the
museum's department of vertebrate
paleontology, says that our prehis
toric ancestors perhaps did not have
to contend with the deinodon, which
likely was extinct before the earliest
caveman. The deinodon lived" during
the cretaceous period of the age of
reptiles, according to calculations
based on the alteration of radio-active
The skeleton of the deinodon was
found three years ago by Charles H.
Sternberg in the canyon of the Red
Deer- river in Alberta, the richest
repository of dinosaur skeletons yet
discovered. The geography and cli
mate of that region was far different

to forget the inclinations of Russell
nd Palmerston and to remember
John Bright and those cotton spinners
of Lancashire, whose interests would
have led them to side with slavery
but whose instincts were so sound
that they always sympathized with
tne cause of liberty?
Perhaps I might ask Americans
too to cai ry this spirit into your con
sideration of modern 'nternational
politics. I should never think of
quarreling with fair criticism, and in
the government of the British domin
ions and colonies plenty of mistakes
are made, just as. from reading
American newspapers. I am com
pelled to 'suspect that mistakes are
sometimes made In the government-of
America. But, criticising mistakes,
ask yourselves whether any honest
attempt has been made or is being
made to secure justice and good gov
ernment, and look around to see
whether even amid mistakes some
considerable progress and improve
ment have not been achieved.
Emphasizing the significance of the
12-year sojourn of the Pilgrim fath
ers in Holland, Dr. W. H. de Beau
fort, counsellor of the Netherlands
legation at Washington, declared that
Holland from the very earliest times
has been regarded, more than almost
any other nation In Europe, as a ref
uge for the oppressed. His remarks
on this subject were taken as bearing
on the kaiser a refuge in Holland
Holland Is Refuge.
"Since the Dutch declaration of in
dependence in 1681." said Dr. de Beau
fort, "there has been in Holland a
broad complacency toward other
men's opinions and beliefs, both re
ligious and political, which has caused
Holland often to be termed the 'cradle
of liberty.'
"Since 1681 there have been loud
knockings at our doors, one set of
men after another, suffering for their
actions or beliefs, and even since 191
knockings from no less than 1,000,000
of our neighbors, the Belgians, to
whom we gave ready refuge and re
lief. "But if the doors of Holland have
always been open, no less than the
very heart of our people, we have not
been prompted by any reasons of self
interest or of ultimate profit to our
selves." Vice-president Marshall said every
American was faced with the two
fold duty of "worship to God and the
making of a home."
"The making of a home Is the all
important thing." he said. "Men do
not grow enthusiastic over boarding
houses nor over restaurants. Dis
pense with as many things as you
will In modern life, you have lost
naught if you have retained a spot
that you leave with regret at break
of day and toward which the eyes of
your heart turn at every waking and
absent moment.

Pioneer School War Established ai
Cornell, but Discontinued.
SYRACUSE. X. T. Although the
first school of forestry In the United
States was established as a state in
stitution In 1898 in connection with
the college of agriculture at Cornell
university, this school was closed In
1903 and has not since been reopened
at Cornell. In 1911 the state, which
had supported the Cornell school
again established a state college of
forestry at Syracuse university and
the college has been making rapid
crrowth since its establishment, now
close to nine year sago.
In 1910 the college of agriculture a
Cornell university established a de
nartment of forestry and that depart
ment has done good work. It is not,
however, a college of forestdy in it
self, but a department of the col
lege of agriculture, and its work is
supported by appropriations for agriculture.
