One of today's romances dwelt on the

who arrived In Portland yesterday attar- j
noon, believes the peace of the world
depends upon the two great English
speaking nations Great Britain and
The noted Soot carries his Ideas of
national friendliness Into hla own life,
for he shows the greatest courtesy to
all whom he meets, taking time, that an
American in his position would deem too
valuable for Interviews and converse-
tlons, to explain political questions aa
they appeal to .him. It Is said that hla
success In parliament was due to this
characteristic and carried him through'
many a battle for measures that could
not have succeeded without such In
fluence. In speaking of affairs in general last
night and of hla Impressions of America,
Blr John said:
"It has been a source of great regret
that friction resulted from the Alaska
boundary question and later from the
decision on the Newfoundland dispute.
These decisions should not have been
made In so great a hurry and I believe
that ths feeling they caused In Canada
was more against the mother country
than against ths United States. It Is re
grettable that thia should have occurred
and I hope that nothing mora will reault
from them." 9
Talks of the Tariff.
Then Sir John took up the queatlon
of trusts snd tariff. He said:
"When I waa a young man. Great
Britain was overwhelmed with debts.
Theee were mostly the result of the
continents! ware. The tariff was on
everything. Including the newspapers.
which waa so burdensome that but very
few were able to survive. I distinctly
remember when a lad. that I waa given
seven pence every Saturday and sent
for a weekly paper. Of the ssven pence,
four went to pay the government tax.
AH other artlclea were taxed In pro
portion snd the people were simply un
able to withstand the rates. Gladstone
and Sir Robert Peel brought about a
change of thia order that was most revo
lutionary In that 1.200 articles were
placed upon the free list by one act.
From that time the progress of the
country has been by leape snd bounds.
TDhe people are In better condition than
they have ever been In the history ef
the country. ! s
"The efforts of Joseph Chamberlain
to secure a tariff law are simply meet
ing with the success that always ao
comnanlee a neraonal campaign. When
Chamberlain atone the tariff agitation.

taken up the measure again, the move

believe that It will ever become effec

"The reason that I think the tariff
will never become operative in England
Is due to tbe fsct that Chamberlain la
r heart gone. His health la wretched and
tX man seems to have worked himself
out. He has proved a wonderful char
acter and resigned rom the government
to take up hla fight for the tariff, but
he began too late for hla health would
not carry him through. The people are

probability of its success even more

"Personally. I am very much against
the tariff. I believe also that there will
be a radical revision of the present tar
iff law In thia country after the trusts
have been reformed The two the tar
iff and the trusts go band In hand as
a national Issue snd the solution of one
will depend largely upon the solution
of ths other."
When ssked concerning the effect of
Bryan's visit in England. Blr John re
ferred to It as ephemeral.
"Mr. Bryan is only one of many great
men who come to England," la the way
he disposed of the great Nebraakan.
"Bryan is very much like Arthur Bal
four brilliant, but erratic. Such men
would better grace a university chair
than handle a government."
Sir John spoke feelingly of his ter
mer visit to Oregon la 1176 and re
ferred to many friends he had made at
that time who have since died After
hie visit In 1(76, Sir John wrote a book
about his travels In America. 1n which
be paid many compliments to the Wil
lamette valley and Portland. He laid
special stress upon the Oregon climate,
which he said la peculiarly suitable for
tbe British race. He said that it at
onoa made him feel at home and re
ferred to It as the proper place fer his
countrymen to settle.
Many predictions that the distin
guished writer made In reference to
Portland In hla book have since been
fulfilled, notably In regard to the re
markable growth ot wealth.
The Interest which Sir John shows in
America la eclipsed only by the won-
