H. R. LEWIS TALKS OX TIIE MANILA
Points Out Portland's Opportunity
' " Lecture Before the Commercial
Club Expnnslon Views.
H. R. LcttIb grave the members of the
Commercial Club an Interesting- and valu
able talk last evening -on the commercial
prospects of Portland In the Orient, and
particularly In the Philippines. He said
the flret great need now was transporta
tion, and then all Portland merchants had
to do to enter markets unlimited In ex
tent end greater than was ever Imagined
was to study the needs of the people there.
Mr. Lewis explained that ho went to the
Islands In the Interests of a dozen large
mercantile Arms of Portland. He said the
venturo was successful so far as trans
portation permitted and crushing tariff
regulations at Manila could be overcome.
He also admonished Portland merchants
that they knew little about the foreign
trade, but followed with the assertion that
they were quickly learning.
"The whole Orient Is open to Portland."
eald the speaker. "It Is told In two words
flour and lumber. Portland Is the cheap
est flour market In the world, and the
same may almost be said of lumber.
Every outgoing vessel from here carries
heavy cargoes of these two products, and
other merchandise will naturally follow.
JU1 those people from Vladlrostock to
Singapore, or even Calcutta, are heavj
consumers of our flour, and our lumber
meets their requirements."
Of the Manila market he spoke In the
most hopeful vein. American flour Is In
Ereat demand, as the natives are eager to
substitute It for their natrve rice and fish.
Mr. Lewis reviewed statements he made
as representative of the Manila Chamber
of Commerce, pertaining to almost pro
hibitive tariff duties, which he said bore
heaviest on the United States, because
these duties were most absurd on the
necessaries of life, which the United
States furnished. The anomaly of a Na
tion owning islands and taxing its own
nerchants heavier than the commerce of
other nations was commented on. Mr.
Lewis related an amusing Incident of how
fond the natives were of hardtack to show
their preference for breadstuffs made from
flour. The extent of the market In the
Philippines alone he could not estimate,
but he thought it great. As for the fu
ture of the Islands, the speaker said they
could paslly sustain 45000,000 people. This
was based on the fact that they were as
large as Japan, which had a population of
4iO0O.O(X. The productiveness of the soil
and the variety of articles grown were
mentioned. Mr. Lewis corrected a gen
erally current mistake concerning the
value of American lumber.
"I was always told, and especially when
I went to the Philippines, that It was ab
solutely useless to try to open up a mar
ket there for our lumber, owing to the rav
ages of the white ant. I want to say the
white ant Is a bugbear. Under favorable
conditions he wl'l cat out a piece of lum
ber, but this Is ordinarily where it touches
the ground and Is In a damp place. So far
as his ravages not being prevented that Is
elmply nonsense. The Government is now
building a largo cold-storage plant, worth
over $303,000. and many other buildings, and
using Oregon fir to do It with. This lum
ber, I understand. Is to be treated with
some sort of a preventltlve."
Mr. Lewis opened the eyes of the mer
chants by giving them some inside figures
of the Immense trade possible in the Ori
ent. He said Kobe. Japan, today had more
tonnage visiting It than did New Tork. and
he named several of the big open ports on
the Asiatic coast where from 50 to 75 big
pteamers could be seen discharging or load
ing cargo at once. While he was In Shang.
hal he met a commercial traveler, who in.
Jormed him in a matter-of-fact way that
he had just taken a single order from a
Chinese merchant for IS 000 reams of writ
ing-paper. This was only one dealer, who
paid, as all the Chinese merchants do, cash
upon receipt of the goods. Of steamer op
portunities Mr, Lewis said:
"There is room at the present day for
a steamer running from Portland to the
Hawaiian Islands, thence to Manila and
on to Singapore and return. Singapore ex
ports annually to this country something
like 75,000 tons of merchandise. Portland
Is the only city on the Coast where o
6teamer line Is possible at the present
time, owing to traffic conditions existing,
and should, without question, make every
effort to secure at the earliest possible day
steamer accommodations. I have been
trying for six months to ship some flour
to the Islands for one of the firms I went
there for, and am yet urtab'e to do so for
.want of sufficient space."
At tne close or ms remarks Mr. Lewis
added that he was an ardent expansion
ist. In tho broadest sense, which brought
quite an applause from the audience. He
wished to disabuse the minds of all who
thought the Philippines would be a dead
weight on the hands of any government.
A hard hit was given thoe advocating
turning the Island over to Filipino govern
ment: "We cannot no more leave there, no
more give them up, no more barter them
away, than we can fly. It Is Impossible.
We are there protecting the Interests of
every nation in Europe, and we must pro
tect them. I do not believe there,ls a sin
gle American who sincerely desires us to
Slve them up to England.'Germany, Russia
or any other country, or even turn them
-ever to the monkey Filipinos, which they
Teally are. They know nothing about gov
ernment, are divided Into countless tribes,
speaking as many languages. No nation
In Europe would permit us to turn their
interests there over to those people there,
who would simply cut their throats and
take their property."
President Cake. In Introducing Mr.
Lewis, said the club owed gratitude to the
enterprising firms that had sent Mr. Lewis
Into this new field. He further commented
on the co-operative spirit being mani
fested. IN THE SEVERAL COURTS.

RED CROSS NEEDS AID.
California Society Appeals to Orejfon
SAN FRANCISCoTMarch S. 1930-Mre.
Henry E. Jones. President of the Oregon
Emergency Corps and Red Cross Society
My Dear Madam: Mrs. Harrington finds
It necessary. In view of our almost com
plete state of "bankruptcy, to appeal to tho
friends of the California lied Cross
throughout the country for assistance to
keep our doors open for a season longer.
On this coast it Is a well-known fact
that California assisted In some .way every
regiment passing through, asking nothing
for her own men. That assistance was
gladly given, and in many cases appre
ciated, and Me would not now ask a return,
except that each transport brings some
pitiful cases, which do not come under
Government, and consigned direct to us
by nurses, etc, in the Philippines, or their
own families elsewhere, and how can we
close our work In the face of all this suf
fering? If only you everybody could
look Into our ofilce tho day after the ar
rival of a transport, a ready, hearty re
sponse would follow from all over this
great, generous country. We ber of the
country simply to help their sons and
brothers through us. They are not Call
fornlans, but that makes no difference to
If you can further our case In any way,
please do so. and receive our everlasting
gratitude. Cordially yours,
KATHARINE B. ELLIOTT.
By order Mrs. W. R. Harrington. Presi
dent of California State Red Cross So
ciety. This touching appeal for assistance was
received by the president of, the Emer
gency Corps and Red Cross Society of this
city a few days ago, and, after delibera
tion. It was decided to present the sub
ject to the public through the columns of
The Orcgonlan. As a society. It Is Im
possible to take any action in the mat
ter, as practically the work of the organ
ization Is ended, and the balance In the
treasury of the society, which Is by no
means large. Is pledged to tho monument
fund and cannot bo used for other pur
poses. This money was given by the people of
Oregon for this object, and therefore Is
counted a sacred trust, and will be kept
until It can be applied toward the erec
tion of a fitting memorial for the dead of
the Second Regiment of Oregon Volun
teers. But this appeal from the California Red
Cross Society ought not for this reason
to be disregarded. On the broad ground
of humanity, every Individual should feel
It a personal obligation to do something,
and rejoice that an opportunity Is given
to assist the faithful women of San Fran
cisco In their noble and disinterested
work. For nearly two years they have
labored for the relief of the sick and
needy soldiers who have passed that way.
As a state, we remember with gratitude
their thoughtful attentions to the sol
diers of Oregon, both going to and return
ing from the Philippines, and what they
did for our soldiers they did equally well
for those from other states.
That these unceasing demands require
a large amount of money Is also well
known, and the constant drain upon the
treasury has been met hitherto by the
people of California without a murmur.
Now their society Is practically bank
rupt, and for the first time asks the peo
ple of the states whose soldiers have been
and are still Its care, for help, that yet
a little longer it may carry on this relief
work. This is a work In which every state
Interested should be glad to assist. Let
Oregon nee to it that she does her part,
and every Individual, as far as possible,
contribute something towards this fund,
that these sick and disabled soldiers, as
they reach their home land, may receive
proper care until they are able to be sent
to their resictlve states.
As an organization, the Emergency
Corps regrets its Inability to take active
steps, but every member will do her part
to further the work.
Donations In money, no matter how
email the amount, will be thankfully re
ceived, and may be sent to the secretary
of tho society. Mrs. F. E. Lounsbury. 13
Seventh street, Portland. Acknowledg
ments will be made through the press.
Let every Individual and society come
forward now and gladly help our sister
state In her time of need, as she unself
ishly cares for the sick and suffering sol
diers of this great Nation.

President Oregon Emergency Corps and
Red Cross Society.
Captain Jack and the Preacher.
Klamath Falls Republican.
An Interesting Incident Is related In con
nection with tho execution of Captain
Jack, who was one of the Indians hanged
In this county for taking a leading part
In tho Modoc War. The day before his
death. Captain Jack was visited by a
number of the clergy and asked to re
ceive the ordinance of baptism and other
wise prepare himself for a comfortable
reception at the end of his Journey on
the morrow, being told of heaven's bliss
and the means to attain it. Then Jack
Inquired of the divine If he were actually
sure of heaven and wayto get there, to
which an affirmative answer -was given,
with positive assurance. Whereupon Jack
replied: "As for me. I feel a trifle un
certain about the matter, and you being
sure, I'll make this proposition to you:
You take my place tomorrow and go to
that region, about which you haven't
a single doubt, and In return for the fa
vor Til give you all I've got 10 ponies
to add to your estate. I'm not usually
very particular, but In this Instance, feel
ing somen hat uneasy about the result,
would a little rather stay here."
. At 10:50 this morning there will be con
firmation services at St. Paul's German
Lutheran Church, East Twelfth and Clin
ton streets. Rev. August ICrauee will
confirm a class of 13. For this event the

greens. and Is very attractive. '
