The work of the year opened with the
exhibit of Van Dycks photographs De
cember 15, 1893. This was the first use
made of the Ladd collection and there
has been at all times since a series of
framed photographs on exhibition In the
lecture-room. This exhibit opened and
closed with a free open evening and one
or two open evenings have been a. fea
ture of the more linportant succeeding
exhibitions. The attendance on these
evenings has in numbers and interest
Justified the experiment.

of exhibitions of the early northern artists
Durcr. Cranach, Shoengauer. Van EycK,

of lectures given by Miss Osgood under
the auspices of the Portland Art Class.
For the last lecture of this course an
exhibit of Rembrandts, previously planned
but postponed for the lecture, was ar-
ranged and like the Van Dycks remained
in place two months, with two open
From the first of the year, though with
some necessary Inconvenience, the collec
tion of photographs was drawn upon by
the Portland Art Class, but on account
of Incomplete numbering could not be
generally available. In June, however,
the rooms were closed that the work of
completing the system might be accom
plished and since the reopening. August
1, the collections are freely accessible to
all visitors At this time the East Room
was opened, where the books and photo
graphs may be consulted and enjoyed.
A Summer' exhibition of photographs
from the work of Millet was In place dur

about 125 original Durer and Rembrandt

hardly be said so far to have" Increased,
but the usefulness of the exhibit must
not be underrated on that account, and

.Following Is the "full text of the paper

of the Historical Society:
The recent publication of. a document
written by Dr. John 'McLaughlin, chief
factor of the Hudson's Bay company J
from 1S23 to 1S45. by Mrs. F. F. Nixon,
in the June quarterly of the Oregon His- I
torical Society. Induces the writing of
this paper, from a belief that It may '

Joining of the Hudson's Bay Company's
interest, temporarily, to the Provisional '
Government of Oregon, instituted by the ,
free settlers In the country in 1S43.
It seems plain from the brevity of the
wording that the document is a hastily
made copy of the report Intended to De j
made by Dr. McLoughlln to the directors
of the Hudson's Bay Company In London
in Justification of the writer's putting .
the property Interests in his charge, j
under the protection of what he calls the
"Organization," while his allegiance and
obedience was due to England and the
Hudson's Bay Company, in whose serv- j
Ice he was. The latter knew, however, i
when they detailed him as chief over
ed the Canadian courts from trying land
cases, but provided In section 6 for them
to be setttled in -England.
It Is reasonable to suppose that If
Douglas knew this, when he offered Will

somewhere else and his assistance was
civilly refused, he was simply "bluffing"

Loughlln, in regard to keeping on good
terms with the Americans, but not as to
