there is a spirit of co-operation it
will be a success' he declared.
"The honor and good faith of the
nations participating form its chief
Its purpose, he said, was to avoid
war. It is not a panacea, but hopoe
to make war as remote as possible.
There were only two reservations
of real importance, Mr. Taft asserted.
One concerned the limitation of the
United States to decide matters such
as immigration, etc.. which in inter
national law are domestic matters,
and the difference between the Mon
roe doctrine and article 30.
''Article 10 is simply an expansion
of the Monroe doctrine," he asserted.
"We have never fired a shot nor lost
a man in preserving the Monroe doc
trine, even though three nations sent
their battleships to Venezuela. If
one declaration by one nation will
do that, what will a similar declara
tion by all the nations accomplish ?
The three alternative reservations
to article 10 were virtually the same
thing, Mr. Taft said.
"I rarely agree with Mr. Bryan,
but I do agree with him when he
said that if the majority and the
minority cannot get together on the
choice of words, the minority should
bow to the majority."
Discussing the reservation 'as to the
representation of Great Britain and
her dominions, Mr. Taft said Utat as
Great Britain had indicated Great
Britain was willing to accept that
reservation, that question was easily
Mr. Taft was introduced by Edgar
E. Piper. Mayor Baker spoke briefly.
Taft Called Great (ltlr.cn.
"Mr. Taft is a great citizen who has
received the highest honor in the
United States, who has given an idea
of what an American citizen ought
to be and ought to do. He has done
an incalculable service to the men
and women of America and to the
administration, to the' politics of
which he is opposed," said Mr. Piper.
Vlnltor Talks and Chuckles.'
m In these .days of stress and storm,
of fears and bogies, there came to
Portland yesterday something big and
wholehearted. That something was
th jolly laugh and the deep guttural
chuckle of William H. Taft.
To count those chuckles would he
Impossible. They come thick and :
fast. They are part of "Bill Taft.
Those broken, seemingly suppressed
aughs take the whole world into
Taft's confidence. They savor 'of his
intolerance of conventions and tell
broadcast that no matter how tired
and worn-out he is he loves people.
And they love him. It does not seem
to matter whether Vbey voted for him
or not once upon a time, now they
re happy just to have the privilege
of hearing him, and, especially, of
hearing that deep-throated chuckle
which turns the day into something
brighter and makes life's troubles
Consider his day: He arrived early
in the morning. Newspaper men were
at him thick and fast for a few hours.
Telephone calls by the literally
score rang their strident tone. Those
who were with him at Yale, at Cleve
land., at Washington, those he had
once known and never knew, wanted
to see him. Then came a succession
Proicresfilve Lanrh First.
First was the progressive luncheon
at the Benson hotel, where Mr. Taft
discussed Americanism and bolshevism
and warned against hysteria. A mo
ment after his talk was over, Ralph
H. -.Mitchell and Marshall Dana were
hustling him to the Press club lunch
eon on the second floor of the Benson.
He rked the newspaper "gang"
and their friends, spoke again 'because
they asked him to and although they
had promised he should not, and then
tried to dash to his room to dictate
a few letters.
Did he get there? He did not. Mel
vin G. Winstock buttonholed him at
the door and literally forced him be
fore the members of the Motion Pic
ture Exhibitors' league, where he said
a few words more, fearful that a mo
tion picture camera was in hiding to
record him visually at the same time.
Then at last to the Hotel Multnomah.
Freedom Is Brief.
A few minutes for correspondence,
then freedom for the first time during
the day. And for an hour Mr. Taft
reveled in a walk through Portland's
k Jusiness streets, out over the river,
into the residence sections. Back to
the hotel to rest. A few more tele
phone calls. A few more individuals
anxious to shake his hand. Then
came the visit to the University club,
where Yale alumni were waiting to
dine him and do him honor, and last
of all to the auditorium for the set
speech of the day on "The League of
Nations Up to Date."
Ideas Clemrly Uefined.
Although Mr. Taft has all fhe ex
huberanee of youth, his ideas are as
clearly denned as ever. Here they
are' in skeleton form as he defined
them yesterday in his morning talks
and in the course of a newspaper
He is not In favor of the Armenian
mandate as proposed by President
He is not n favor of Hiram John
son and is amused that he is thought
"unsportsmanlike neeau.se he ex-,
pressed pleasure at the thought that
the Johnsonian delegates were John
sonian from compulsion and not from
inclination. He even found the charge
droll enough to recall what Johnson
and California did in 1912 and 1916.
He believes the Irish, pro-Germans
and socialists are for Johnson. He
chuckled: "I believe he would even
deplete the socialist vote."
He is not a "candidate for presi

OREGON IAN NE WS BUREAU,
Washington, May 27. The interstate
commission has ordered a hearing i

tion of the state of Idaho and Idaho
public utilities .conrmission, asking
the commission to compel the North
ern Pacific, Camas Prairie and Idaho
and Northern railroads to build about
100 miles of road between Grangeville
and New Meadows, in order to afford
direct rail communication between
north and south Idaho.
The defendant carriers, answering
the state's petition, assert that traffic
does not justify the enormous cost
that would be involved; that this road
would cost $100,000 a mile to build
and would be expensive to maintain
through the mountains. They further
contend that present rail connection
between north and south Idaho, via
Spokane and Pendleton, is adequate
and not unduly embarrassing to the
aublic. Furthermore the carriers as
ert that the provisions of the new
transportation act under which the
state petition was filed is unconsti
tutional and cannot be enforced.
The commission also set for hearing
at Spokane on July 15 the complaint
of the Craig Mountain Lumber com
pany versus the Great Northern.

A Perpetual Patent
Under our patent laws exclusive rights to manufacture
are granted only for a term of seventeen years. . After
that period, any one has the right to make and market
The original patentee often finds the good will that he
has burilt up for his line jeopardized by a flood of tawdry
and unworthy imitations. ,The public has no certain way
of discriminating between brands if it fails to recognize
the original satisfactory make.
But when the article is trade-marked and advertised
before and after the expiration of the patent, competition
is not an overwhelming calamity. The public continues to
demand the "old reliable" by brand name. The patents on
Stilson wrenches, aspirin and steering sleds have expired,
but the original makers stiU control the balk of the busi
ness in those lines.
Articles not patentable can be similarly protected. The
trade-mark can be registered in the public mind.
A monopoly of demand can be created through adver
tising, where a monopoly of manufacture is impossible.
