NEEDS AUTHORITY OF CONGRESS
If an Appropriation is Made, the Depart

Boston, Nov. 6. While in this city
today to viiit hia eon, who is a Harvard
student, Secretary of War Alger was
seen in regard to the matter of the re
quest of the merchants of Portland, Or.,
, and the chamber of commerce of that
city, asking his official' assistance in
sending supplies to the Klondike,
through the co-operation of the war de
partment. Secretary Alger stated that
his department is waiting to get a report
on the matter from Captain Ray. When
last beard lrom Ray was at Fort Yukon,
and was going to .Dawson City. The
secretary has ordered reindeer to-St.
Michaels, hoping there are stores of
supplies there. He added :
"We should have a report soon. Un
til that comes I cannot do anything, as
I will not know the true condition of af
fairs and cannot tli just what it is best
to do. .
"In the matter of the request of the
Portland chamber of commerce, I have
no authority to act in such a case. Con
gress is the only body that can place the
forces of our departments at their dis
posal for such a thing. If it was any
thing in the way of army transportation
if we had troops there I could act on my
own responsibility. As a citizenI will
do all I can, but officially I can do
nothing without the authorization of
Alger to Mason.
Washington, Nov. 6. Secretary Al
ger today sent to W. S. Mason, presi
dent ot the chamber of commerca of
Portland, Oregon, the following telegram
concerning the reported destitution in
"Your dispatch of the 4th, concerning
Alaska sufferers received. Nothing can
be done by the department without con
gressional authority. But I suggest
k that you get all the particulars, and the
department will also - get what facts it
can, andyou may submit a plan for re
lief. You may be sure of active co-operation
as soon as congress makes an
appropriation, which, if found neceseary
will be urged.

Says He Would Tote Against Bill For
Free Coinage by the United
Bakek City, Or., Nov. 6. Congress
man Ellis arrived here yesterday, and
after spending the day pleasantly with
friends, returned to bis home in Hepp
ner, on this afternoon's train.
, During an interview with an Oregon
ian correspondent, he was requested to
define bis position on the silver' ques
tion. In his reply he stated that in
this, as well as all. other qustions con
nected with national . legislation, he is
guided solely by; the last republican
platform, enunciated ' in St. Louis in
It was then suggested to Mr. Ellis
that among the mass of voters there may
be many who, while-', staunch republi
cans, may not have read that platform,
Mr. Ellis said
"In order that there may be no doubt
as to my construction of it, you can say
for me, that if an attempt 'should be
made to pass a bill. in congress, advocat
ing the free and unlimited coinage of
silver by the United States alone, I shall
most decidedly vote against it. This is
the purpose and intent of the platform,
and I shall live up to it in every partic
olar. I am frank enough to admit that
there was a time when I entertained dif
ferent views, but that time has passed."
Mr. Ellis also express the opinion
that, owing to the daily increasing pros
prosperity among the ' people of the
United States, and the superior tact and
business ability displayed by President
McKinley, the voters of this country ;
were rapidly becoming more disposed, to.
leave the solution of the financial prob
lems to the present administration, and
the silver question, as a political factor,
does not occupy the important position
which it did during the last campaign.
