El ,i Paso, j Tex.,, considered Denver's

cast its, votes for Denver on condition
. that the 1804 convention goes to Texas.
This leaves San Jose, Cal., standing
alone, and with the sentiment of most
. of ths delegates In favor of some cen
trally located city away from the coast,
the Colorado town Is almost assured of
the convention. t
"1 would be In favor of El Paso,"
-' said Col. U F. Wilson this morning. 1t
I thought - the town had any- chance,
but as it doesn't I am for Denver. Any

Just how. Oregon -will lineup when

either for San Jose, Denver or El Paso,
will mean a great deal In the final

The new officers of the association
were elected by the executive board in
session this morning and . the result was
announced at the morning session of the
The final day of the National Live
stock convention opened under somewhat
lowering skies, but even the rain did
not dampen enthusiasm, President
Springer rapped the convention to order
at a little after 10. The lateness of the
hour was due to a protracted meeting
of the executive committee, . -
President Springer stated that Chan
cellor E. Benjamin Andrews of Nebraska,
who delivered one of the addresses to
day, had made him a statement ' Dr,
Andrews declared that he had never at
tended a convention where abler paper
had been presented, and he telt certain
that a section which could produce such
men, would one, day be able to domi
nate the destinies of the nation. " This
statement was greeted with applause.
A number of resolutions were then
adopted. These In their order follow:
"Resolved, That the transportation
committee to be appointed by the incom
ing president of the National Livestock
association be instructed to -meet at the
most convenient point at the earliest
possible moment and take such action as
may, be necessary to remedy the evils
witn wnicn tney nave to contend."
"Resolved, That this convention ex
press to President Roosevelt our hearty
appreciation of his . continued Interest
in the livestock industry so practically
manifest in sending the special land
commission to confer with us upon that
most difficult and important problem, the
public ranges." v
. "Resolved, That it la the sense of this
convention that all questions In relation
to grazing upon the public ranges should
be settled entirely upon local grounds.
and that we favor the government con
trol of summer ranges under such rules
and regulations, based- upon local condl
tlons, as will be satisfactory to the ma
otity of those people at present using
these ranges, and ' which will change
existing conditions to the least possible
extent to insure protection to those en
titled to use the same, and whtch will
prevent the clashing of different classes
of stock and those entitled to use said
rangea" . . "
The resolution adopted on the forest
reserve and summer range question
states that since the policy of the gov
ernment to preserve forests for use of
future generations and to conserve the
water supply Is approved by stockmen
generally, and since it seems apparent
that the governmental control of ranges
and reserves is advisable if local con
ditlons are .taken ' into proper account
and clashing ' , interests are . pacined,
therefore the convention ; commends
President Roosevelt in appointing
commission to investigate conditions
and consider local opinions, and advises
that all final action taken by : the gov
ernment to administer ranges and forest
reserves be taken by the department of
agriculture, since to that tepartnient
belongs . the questions - involved.
On this- subject it was further re
solved that : the association earnestly
advised the Immediate passage of the
bill providing for the transfer of the
administration of forest reserves to the
department of agriculture, the resolu
tion being amended ss follows: v
"Be it resolved, that said bill be so
amended aa, to protect present equities
of innocent purchasers."
Concerning the press, the following
resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That the thanks of the
delegates are hereby , tendered to the
newspapers of Portland, and the press
associations and their able and. ener
getic represehtatlvee..' for- the 'full and
complete reports they have presented
from day to day of the proceedings of
this convention, and we assure the ed
itors ii nd reporters of ssld Journals of
our sincere appreciation.1

this stand is expected. The brokers are
generally conceded to be. ln the field to

WEST SIDE SPENT MORE MONEY
, ' ;. ' ' V,' r.
During the year 103 the city of Portland Issued Jus 1,828 building permits, as against 1,244 during the
previous year. " Of the number this" year 10 were taHen out for the . west aide and 1,028 7or the east side.
Most of the hew buildings on the east side are residences and the total amount represented by the permits
Of the year, amounted to Sl,58S,18(f as against $2,(95.870' on the " west side. . The' reason why the building:
permits on the. west side j-epresent more money than those on the east slde'ls on accounof the large number
of office buildings which-were constructed during the 'year. The average1 cost of -each building erected
on the east side ; is f 1,543; on the west side .$4,41V'. . , : , , . , . . .
The United Statea government took ..out! permit for $140.000 .of repairs to the postefflce building, cor

- Washington, Jan. 15. Japan's reply1
to Russia is couched in terms that jnake
practically certain its rejection. The
reply Is mo worded as to Indicate that It
is the last step Japan will take towards
the peaceful solution of her dispute with
Russia. Unless Russia backs , down
ignomintously, diplomatic relations will
be severed on receipt of : the Russian
answer. .Thid 'is the Information that
has been conveyed to the state depart
ment. - - ' i- -: .
The position assumed by Japan is that
she must refuse to accept the Russian
proposal -that-, the neutral lone, embrac
ing nearly one-third of Korea, be estab
lished, and must - insist on the main
tenance of territorial Integrity with
both China and Korea. Japan isj-'how-ever,
willing to recognise Russia's
special Interests in Manchuria in return
for recognition by Russia- of Japan's
special interests In Korea. - ' '
' No other deduction can be drawn from
the terms of the Japanese " response)
communicated to Russia than that, un- .
less the' modifications suggested are
made, Japan will go to war. While not
an ultimatum the Japanese note makes
it ciear that negotiations cannot be pro
longed, unless Russia offer concessions.
This government has been advised that
Japan feels that she can lose no more or
little more, ss a result of an unsuccess
ful war with the cxar's forces, than she
would lose now by giving way to Rus
sian proposals. She believes therefore
that war will do her no great harm, ex
cept in a financial way, and may do im
mense good She holds that the . in
tegrity of (China and Korea are worth,
fighting for, . particularly according to
her view, one of them will pass into Rus ,
Ma's possession and the annexation of
the other by Russia, be merely post-;
ponement by the acceptance of the pres
ent plan of the cxar's government for
the arrangement of present difficulties.
The administration is not well pleased
with the assurance given to Secretary
Hay by Count Casslni. Russian ambas
sador, on Monday, that "Russia au
thorities would place no obstacle In the
way of the t full enjoyment by . the
powers having treaties with China, of
