OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
FRUIT LAND IN DEMAND,
TRADE HAS NOT DECREASED.
American-Asia Association Expects No
War With Japan.
New York, Oct. IS. That there has
not been a falling off in trade with
Japan following the Japanese-Ruesian
war, but on tho contrary a healthful re
sumption of normal conditions, was the
statement of James R. Morse, presi
dent of the American-Asiatic associa
tion, at the annual meeting of the or
ganization today. Conditions in China
have not been so good, but thero are
prospects of recovery from depressed
conditions. In the secretary's report,
John Ford says:
"The obviously temporary character
of the settlement of the Japanese ex
clusion question in California tended
to encourage rather than to check the
circulation of foolish and mischevioua
rumors of impending war between the
two countries. All the influence of
your executive committee has been ex
erted to demonstrate the absurdity of
assuming that there could be any eeri
ous quarrel between the two govern
ments in dealing with the issue raised
RAILWAY CLEARING HOUSE.
Official Suggests Feasible Scheme to
Prevent Car Shortage.
Los Angeles, Oct. 18. Nearly every
railway company is studying to perfect
plans for the quick movement of cars
and rolling stock, with a view to elim
inating the shortage features of tho
businees this winter. It is argued that
with the proper shifting of cars and a
careful adjustment nearly one-third
more business can bo transacted with
the present equipment.
It is suggested by an official here,
and the plan is under consideration,
that there be formed a pool of equip
ment by the various roads and a clear
ing -house lor cars. .Any demand lor
ca-s by any road would bo made to the
clearing house, and that concern would
give over the required number of cars
from the nearest supply, or in case of
shortage, or a multiplicity of de
mands the orders would be filled pro
Under this plan it would be the duty
of every road to wire daily reports of
the exact location of all its cars. The
entire equipment of tbo pool would be
registered in the clearing house, much
in the same manner in which the cars
of a line are tabulated by each of tiie
different roads at present.

crown prince of Corea had ever ridden
on a railroad train, and he showed a
childlike interest in the proceeding.
He was delighted with the speed of the
cars, ihe Japanese crown prince land
ed from a warship in the harbor at 2
in. and he was greeted at the dock
by the Corean emperor and the Corean
Trap for Blackmailers.
