EBBOB SPEECH BTBIXES TXS
The Democratic club, with more than
150 charter member, was formed lit
Academy of Music hall last Saturday
evening. The occasion was the cele
bration of Jackson day.-
"Bury the dead past, and earnestly la
bor to consolidate the factions Into a
party of unity. Work for the building
of the Panama canal: stand by the co
lonial system, now that we are In pos
session of the islands, but treat the
natives as citizens of the United States;
have a platform of progressive reform,
show the corruptness of the present na
tional administration, and we can go be
fore the people with an argument, that
'Will give us a respectable minority and
. perhaps a majorlty.7 . ', ;
This was the gist of the speech made
by Governor Chamberlain and the key
note of the sentiment of the meeting.
, The governor said: .. -..
, Shocking Bevelatlons.
"Conditions 'in all parts of the United
.States are not at all satisfactory for a
Republican victory. A corrupt federal
. power Is entrenched, and the . mass of
the people are getting tired of malad
ministration. The Kepubllcan patty,
-ifrojn the throne to the footstool, Is hon
eycombed with corruption, as is evi
denced by the-land, postal and other
frauds. The Panama canal has for
, generation been defeated by the rail
roads of the country. It will be a great
factor in the welfare of the West, and
- ' on this Issue we must stand pat. Whlla
; the trend of 'imperialism Is contrary to
the sentiments of the true Democrats,
i yet a sequence of events has forced it
upon us, and we must do the best we can
for -their people. The people of the
colonies should be given equal rights
and opportunities with the rest of the
; citizens of this nation, and all burden-
- some tariff barriers and unjust taxation
should bo wiped out. The regulation of
the trust Is a work that must be per
formed by the Democrats, as the party
now in power is fettered by the money
: power and from them no legislation van
. be expected which will be of value to the
' great mass of people as against the cor
' poratlons, t . . ,
Mnst Strike at the Soot.
C. E. 8. Wood, said: "I would rather
, see the party defeated than to make any
alliance or go before the people on a
r platform that is not an open and earnest
declaration of Democratic principles.
: Property is in power and the con-
trolling of trusts by legislation Is a poor
. remedy. An example of this is the in
testate commerce commission. One
thing that would help the people would
be the forcing of the trusts to sell
goods Jn the United States as cheap as
in other countries." :
Dr. Harry Lane said that a plank to
; regulate any . labor controversy - by
arbitration was desired by the workers
: ''Of America. ...... . ' v'vTTf ;V-
i . Bothing to Xepudiate.
- Chairman Samuel White, of the state
central committee, In a proclamation,
stated that there seemed to be wide
xrpead Ignorance on the part of many
Hg to the attitude of the party past and
present, and that a studied effort was
being made to misrepresent these things.
Some writers said . that It would be
i necessary to repudiate some of the tit-
teranres of four and eight years - ago,
Mr. White said:
- -"There is absolutely no necessity for,
'nor intention on the part of the Demo-cratlcpaTty-
to repudiate anything In its
next platform, save and except any and
all responsibility for the egotistical
, un-American and un-statesmanllke acts
of the present chief executive of this
nation, the special privileged and trust
breeding legislation of the , Republican
.party, and the extravagance and corrup
tion of high Republican officials In gen
"We still believe our position on the
t Philippine question was correct Wa
. still believe that the purchase of those
iHlands for $20,000,000 from a con
quered foe, against-the will and consent
of the inhabitants thereof, and our long
war for their subjugation so costly In
blood and treasure was a serious blun
der In statesmanship. The tlma will
surely come beore many years roll
over our heads, when, for the preserva-
' ... iAn.nrotttlAn anil nanutnttw ah.
'Institutions, we will be forced to give
to those people their independence, in
spite of the protest of a certain set of
adventurous exploiters who wish to hold
the Islands for their own enrichment as
against the interest of the tollers of
America. The question of the owner
whip of the Islands is not now before
the American people as It was four
years ago. That question has been set
tled irrevocably. The question now is,
how shall we govern them, now that we
have them. ' "
"The. party in its platform of 1904
on this question will stand for justice
and humanity . in the government of
those islands and for a policy which
will not be a blot upon the fair name
, t,-Amerlca, nor tarnish the honor of
' our flag.
h "Our party has nothing to take back
'on the money question. Our position Is
the same today as it was In the past.
Our party was right on that question
and time has certainly proven It. The
true kernel f our demands then was
"The discovery of gold In Alaska was
one way in which. the money volume
was increased about that time, and so
soon as it was materially increased busi
ness revived and prosperity returned.
Thus a kind providence settled - the
money question for us for at least a
', Mother of Trusts."
' 'The platform of 1904 will be "con
structed along broad lines in the Inter
ests -of the whole people; it will de
clare' in no uncertain terms against all
forms of class and - special privileged
legislation. There will be a strong plank
against the trusts and all combinations
of capital which are inimical to the
best Interests of the whole people, as
well as our present prohibitive tariff,
the prolific mother of trusts; It will de
clare against corruption and dishonesty
in public office, both high and. low;
against, .the reckless and un-American
foreign policy, and the dangerous .'ten
dencies of our rough rider president to
wards arbitrary power and absolutism,
. It will demand a strict adherence to the
time-honored Monroe "doctrine," for' the
, preservation of peace on the "Western
' hemisphere, and for- 'the protection of
' the business Interests of the country.
It will declare for a distinctive American
' policy In our dealings with foreign
countries based on the spirit of the con
stitution. It will declare ..for the , up
. building of our merohant marine by
means of tariff reduction rather than a
special privileged ship subsidy wrung
' from the pocket of the people."

BUSY DAY AT THE
Today was a busy day for the Oregon
information bureau at the union depot.
The unusual Influx of visitors' was
caused by the large attendanee of dele
gate to the National. Livestock conven
tion. ' The rooms of the bureau were
crowded a good part of the day, and the
officials kept on the Jump1 to make the
visitors feel at home and to show them
Expressions of surprise : were to be
heard on'every hand. The pictures of
animals were-especially noted, while the
farm products all came In for a good
share of attention!. 'The --visitors were
impressed with the variety of Industries
which were represented in the hall.
. 'There was never a better time to ad
vertise Oregon,' said Superintendent
Frank V. Drake. "These delegates Corns
here from all over the United States. In
almost every other state In the union
they are having a hard winter and ex
periencing difficulty with the manage
ment of their farms. Here everything
Is in good shape. We hope to load the
delegates down with all kinds -of facta
about Oregon while they are within the
borders of the state. They will -carry
the news fif what , they see here to
thousands In eastern states, who will be
induced to remove to Oregon and thus
add to the growing population."
Probably 1,0.00 viators examined the
exhibits at the information bureau to
day, ; -.- . '-,. ' -
PATTI MAY MAKE
A TOUR OF MEXICO
It Is altogether probable that Madame
Adellna Pattl 'will extend her concert
tour to Mexico 'City. The offers and
guarantees mado to her management are
so appetizing that the tour Is likely to
be extended that far. . The idea Is to
give two concerts in the City of Mexico,
which will bo reached In a direct line
from El Paso. The seats If she goes
there will be placed at 125 each, but It
must be remembered that this repre
sents only about 18 American money. It
is reckoned that at this rate she can sing
to about 175,000 at each concert. Guar
antees have already been offered of S0,
000 Mexican money, but the manage
ment has to reckon with the fact that
It will take fully a weak for this tour.
In cose - the project - - Is carried out
Madame Pattl will return and give a
concert at El Paso Immediately after the
City of Mexico and then go to Houston
and New Orleans. '
Pattl will be heard in this city at the
Armory, Tenth and Couch streets, next
Friday night, January 1 4. The sale of
seats began at tho box office of the Mar
quam Grand theatre. , ;

The Rev. Edward L. House, pastor of
the First Congregational church, spoke
on the Iroquois theatre fir in Chicago.
"The first lesson we should note Is
the violation of the law,"-he said. "Men

other ways. ; Some one took It upon
himself to exempt himself from obedi

Of all the occupations open to youg women today
there is not one more entranclngly interesting;
than that of kindergatner. The girl tvho la not
fond of children should never think of taking; up
the work, as to become a successful teacher of
children one must not only be possessed of a love ,
for them, but must be as a'Httle child herself. It
Is in the free kindergartens that the great work is
done. The children of well-to-do parents have so
BABIES TAUGHT WITH GAMES
many Joys in their lives that the kindergarten
plays do not especially appeal to them. Not so,
however, with the little mites from the poorer dis
tricts.,, Every song, every game every bit of work
is a keen delight to-them. ; To the girl who un
derstands and loves them it 'is all a labor of love.
She does not object to washing the grimy little
hands and faces, and that is generally the work
her day begins with. Then the children are seated
Jn their little red chairs around the circle and the
morning talk and songs come. How the dear little

' A monster wave flooded the lower

For about three hours it -looked at
every moment as though the vessel
would be swamped. There were 13 pas

them became badly frightened the cap

The wave that swept the vessel came
astern, which he says Is something very
unusual. ' It happened at about 11
o'clock, and completely filled the lower
deck on both sides. None of the doors
or wl.ndows gave way, however, and the
water soon : flowed bark Into the sea.
Had It been followed "by several ocher
waves it Is believed to be very probable
that another wreck would- have been re

the Twelve Mile house on the Base
Line road, of assault with Intent to
kill, the shot which crippled him tem
porarily was fired at the Instigation of
Mrs. Miller. The trial of the case was
begun this morning when the January
term of the state circuit court was
opened. Twenty-four of the Jurors
drawn reported for duty, 11 having been
excused Sixteen of the 24 were chal
lenged or excused and a special venire
for four, to complete the list had to
be issued. The only, unusual ' cause for
excuse was in the case of Thomas Kin

case conscientiously because he believed
that a man who had a revolver in his
possession intended harm to others and
he 'had no use for such, a man.
Strack was the first witness for the
state. He said that September 2 he
stopped his engine in front of the Twelve

water. He refused to comply with an
order to move on because to have done
so -would have meant the risk of bis

v The present system under which the
rank and file of the Portland police
department work in three shifts of eight
hours each is regarded as ideal by
Chief Hunt The same hours are in
vogue in San Francisco and have also
recently been adopted Ay the New Tork
department ..:. , o-y;
Among the men the present arrange
ments are satisfactory except to the
officers on the first night relief. Their
objections "woul,d be waived were the
streetcars to run an hour or more later,
but under the existing schedule upon
which the 5 streetcars run it subjects (
the .officers of this detail to a great
deal of inconvenience. : , . u
There is some talk among the patrol
men on the first night relief of formu
lating a petition asking Chief Hunt to
make such changes as will permit them
also to go to and from their work on
the cars. i ' , - : - "
Under present - arrangements Chief ..
Hunt Is satisfied with the details be
cause the hours allow the officers time
for meals and also because there is one
day relief and two night details. The
hours now In .vogue are: - 1 ' ' -
Day shift from 8:30 a. m. tel;30 p.
m with. one hour for dinner; first night
relief. p. m. to 1:15 a. m.; second night
relief, 12:30 a. m. to 8:46 a m.
The daymen are ort duty for nine
hours, but each has One hour .for the
midday meal, the men going at different
hours, to relieve each other. The pres
ent hours provide for covering the city
while the, men are changing beats ex
cept in the morning for a few minutes
when the day men : and those, on the
second relief going off duty are at head
quarters together for a short time. -
As the streetcars in Portland atop at
midnight the officers on the ' second
night relief have to leave -their homes
before this hour. Then when they go on
duty, half an hour after midnight they
must walk to their beats, which means
a long tramp for those stationed in the
outlying districts. But for those on the
first night relief the greatest inconveni
ence results. In order to be ready to
report oft duty at 1:15 a. m. the men
on the first night relief must leave their
beats shortly before 1 a. m., or as soon
as they are relieved by the other men.
Then they have to walk to headquarters,
which for those In extreme North or
South Portland or for the men in Al
bina means a very long walk. After
being excused these men have to walk
home every night - in all kinds or
weather. A man mar have a beat be
yond Marquam gulch in South Portland.
After walking two miles to tne station
l. h. lb IhH. mUa. mnr.
to his home in Upper Alblna, Wood
lawn. Highland or some other suburb.
Consequently some of these men do not
reach their homes until after o'clock
. Another reason advanced by the mem
bers of the first night relief for con-
siaeration is tne laci inai iney ma a
more arrests than do the other details.
Consequently they must be inf court
more frequently. After walking a beat
the night previous, then tramptlng sev
eral miles home, retiring after 2 a. m.
most St these men do not feel like rush
ing out again to be on band in the po
lice court by :30 a. m. -"''
It has been suggested that the hours
might be arranged as follows: Day de
tail, 7 a. m. to 4 p. m.; first relief.
3:30 p. m. to 11:45 p. m.; second relief,
11 p. m. to 7 a, m. This would give
the ' men exactly . the same length of
service as at present but would per
mit all of the details to use the cars.
It would also allow the first relief
watch to go to their homes in time so
that before court met tney could get
In their night's rest
Chief Hunt said the change could be
made, but no hours could be found that
would be more convenient for meals
for the men than those at present used.
