THE GOVERNMENT. '
At the conference yesterday afternoon
of Governor Chamberlain, Attorney-
General Crawford and Bocretary of State
uunbar with Major Iangfttt. United
States engineer, and United States Dis
trtct Attorney Hall, matters of Impor
tance in connection with the Celllo canal,
chief among them being the , right of
way, were considered. The first named
three respresented the state commission
and- the latter two the government.
The commission's object, was to learn
lust what and how much ground - the
government ; would require and wftat
form or deed of transfer would be
necessary. At the next meeting Dis
trict Attorney Hall will present a form
of deed for the approval- of the com
mlHslon. ',;-: . -r ...--.:-,;- s -The
commission understands that
there will be no serious obstacles to se
curing the'rlght of way. but that the
landholders will In all probability try
to secure' as much of the $100,000 ap
propriation as possible; -Another meet
ing of the commission will be held
with Major Langfitt next week, when
State Treasurer Moore, the" other mem
ber of the commission, will be present
Governor Chamberlain said at the meet
ing -that he thought $60,000 of the ap
propriation would be sufficient to secure
the right of i way. It was understood
at the conference that no serious oppo
sition : would be encountered from the
O. R. N. Co., and officials of tho rail
road company will be invited to & con
ference with the state board later. '
'.i ne board will hasten negotiations
for the right of way as fast as pos
sible. The portage railroad received only
incidental consideration at the meeting.
Messrs. Dunbar and Crawford re
turned to Salem last evening.
MEETING OF NEW
The first meeting of the new state mili
tary board, appointed recently by. Gov
ernor Chamberlain, was held shortly af
ter 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The
meeting was almply in connection ' with
the routine work with -the formal hand
ing over . of i the office by the retiring
board and the taking up of the duties of
the new board. The members of the new
board are: Capt Gordon Voorhles, ' Inspector-general;
J. !A.'! Waddle, commissary-
general; Cecil H.' Bauer, judge ad
vocate, and Dr. Charles P. Chamberlain,
surgeon-general. The retiring board
members are: Col. James Jackson, In
spector-general; David M. Dunne, com
missary-general; S. C. Spencer, judge ad
vocate, and Dr. A. B. Gllllsr surgeon-general.
The military board members are
connected with ; the governor's personal
start; they will go to Salem on Monday
and will elect their officers for the com
ing year At the meeting yesterday there
was a very pleasant time among the
members.- Special orders were issued ac
cepting the resignations of the old board.
Having served more than aeven years
In the Oregon National Guard, Col- D. M.
Dunne was, upon his own request, trans
ferred to the National Guard veterans.
In accepting the resignations of the old
board the commander-in-chief expressed
his appreciation of the faithful and mer
itorious services of the officers named,
saying that, always alert and painstaking
in the performance of their duty, their
records are such as to warrant high
praise. : ... t, . f-
BENTriTS OX CITT OWNERSHIP.
(Journul Special Berries.) ' ' v1
Dulutti, Minn., Jan. 1. Advocates of
municipal ownership of public utilities
may now point to the city of Duluth as
a striking Illustration of the practica
bility and benefits of their ideas. To
day the price of gas for all purposes was
reduced to 90 cents per thousand feet,
which makes a total reduction of $1
since the gas lighting plant was taken
over by the municipality. -Contributing
to this remarkable drop in price have
been better management under munici
pal ownership and a larger consumption;
but this latter has been due to better
management and continued reductions.
Under present contracts and at the rate
of growth now made, cltlsens of Duluth
believe a year hence will see the price
of gas further reduced to 75 cents per
thousand feet. ' .

New York, Dec. $1.-The close of 1903
finds many people . expectant as to the
reports of the financial institutions. It
has been assumed with the changes in
valuations of the stock and bond Itst
since July first, that there would be con
siderable marking off in values and in
the reduction of surplua holdings, , The
New York Life Insurance company is
the first of the great corporations to
make a statement The applications
for new insurance amounted to $475,000,-
ooo. .,, . -: i
The new paid for business accepted
by the company for 1803 Is $325,000,-
000.. President McCall states that this
last mentioned amount Is in excess of
the previous year by $23,000,000. It
shows also a gain of over $190,000,000
in total paid for insurance outstanding
which la stated at one billion . seven
hundred and forty-five ... millions in
amount - covered by 310,000 policies,
The Income of 190$ is over eighty seven
millions and is In excess of. the income
Of 1903 by more than eight millions. The
company reports also that it does not in
vest In or loan upon stocks of any kind
and that no credit is taken in assets for
the excess of the present market value
of securities over their cost value,
which excess Is over two million dol
lars.' The total resources of the com
pany exceed three hundred and fifty mlN
Hon dollars. Its bond holdings in
creased in 103 over thirty millions.
The policy reserves, as certified by the
state Insurance superintendent and sur
plus reserves have been Increased dur
ing the year by more than thirty-five
million dollars, The various bank and
trust company officials predict an easy
money market. And the stock and other
exchange members appear , to be well
satisfied that trade stagnation and the
doubtful views of business Improvement
will likewise be cleared away in .'the
early part of the year. The large build
ing and railroad operations neia up oy
strikes and tight money market will, it
believed,1 be resumed very, early in
the new ' year. . The government export
and import figures would seem to indi
cate that the total exports will rail a
few millions below those of 1900, and be
about equal to those of 1901, but mate
rially in excess of those of 1902. ' While
the total Imports will exceed those of
any preceding year-,- and combined with
the exports, make the grand total of
commerce more than any preceding year;
also tht the' exports of manufacturers
will exceed those of 1902 by several
millions. But be somewhat below those
of the record year ,1900 and' perhaps
1901. , - . ' - -v. ' ' ....!;: .

- The German ship Chrlstel-has com
pleted her grain cargo for the United
Kingdom and went out into the stream
this morning. She will leave down as
soon as she gets a crew. T ' "
Eight -of her sailors deserted, "while
the vessel was lying in port, and -Cap
tain Wurthmann. her commander, de
cided it would be an economical plan to
secure men to take the place of the de
serters without paying the sailor boarding-house
proprietors the regulation
price of $5 a head. He picked -up
enough men about the city who ex
pressed & willingness to sign articles to
make the .voyage. They were stopping
at various lodging houses and said they
were experienced seamen.' The captain
took their addresses and completed all
arrangements to take them aboard. ' ,
Last evening in company with several
officials the captain called at the places
designated to pick up the new men and
take them aboard the vessel. None Of
hthem. could be found, however, Bnd it
was afterwards stated by members of
the official party that the men had been
Induced to take up their quarters at the
sailor boarding-house by Sullivan, who
had got wind in .advance of ' the plan
which was being made to ship a crew
without consulting him. ,' ,
It is now stated to be quite probable
that the captain will be obliged to. pay
the usual rate of $55 a head for the
crew.. ,. ,, ..

seventy-five million dollars is a con
servative estimate of the aggregate sum
to be disbursed this month by corpora
tions, municipalities and states' in in
terest and dividends. r The distribution
of this huge sum, as' in the past, is ex
pected to stimulate the demand for se
curities. Money rates will naturally re
main firm while preparations for the
payments are golngon, but as the opera
tion simply means a shifting of funds,
from one bank to another-the advance
in money rates will likely be temporary
only. - -
