(Special CorrvHpondence. )
Portland, March 3. -The exe-
cuuve committee or the Amen-
Pnrl ABniQfinn nf Traimlm Pno
senger Agents is meeting in Chi
cago tnis weeK to decide unon
, , . r.
the details of their convention
the coming summer, to be held
in Seattle. J. R. O'Neill of this
city, is a member of this com
mittee, and when he left for the
East last Friday carried with
him a most cordial invitation from
the Portland Commercial Club to
include at least a two days so
journ in the "Rose City" in the
itinerary of the Association's
Northwestern trip. Their friend
liness for Oregon has been mani
fested by the Traveling Passen
ger Agents on innumerable oc-
John Harper, who will su
perintend the float making for
the Rose Festival in June, is an
expert in this line, and for many
years has had charge of this fea

Already answers are arriving
to advertisements inserted in the
greatest agricultural, fruit and
dairy journals of the country by
the league about the middle of
February, and long lists of in
quirers are being sent to the dif
ferent commercial secretaries
whose organizations are affiliated
with the state body. Hundreds
of thousands of pieces of litera
ture are going East (from
every part of Oregon. Every
mail carries its message. Espe
cially valuable are the fruit bul-
tins and reports of the Orenon
State Dairy Association sent from
the home office. The Los An
geles Information Bureau, main
tained by Oregon, reports a num
ber of people coming North im
mediately as a consequence of its
few weeks' worth.
"The trend of civilization has
always been westward," said
Henry Watson Connell in a lec
ture recently delivered before the
Portland business men, "since it
crossed Asia to sweep through
Euroix?. Immigration is now
flowing West through the United
States with irresistable force,
but the Pacific Coast is the limit
of this great tidal movement, and
here will be found the greatest
cities of the world. The solidity
and substantial character of Port
land must impress any visitor,
while the vast tributary district
of both Oregon and Washington
represents greater wealth than
can ever be taken from the gold
mines of the continent"

the judges of the Commercial

when their labors will probably

arduous task to the judge, the

Our Pacific Fleet.
The fleet is made of 223,000
tons of fighting ships, mounting
925 modern guns of the latest
improved types, says Harper's
Weekly. Although the 13-inch
guns are the heaviest on all the
ships, the most jwwerful weap
ons in the fleet are the 14 1 12-
inch guns. Each one of these
shoots a projectile weighing 870
pounds, with a muzzle energy of
2700 feet a second and a muzzle
velocity of 44,000 foot-tons, which
is to say a power that could lift
44,000 tons one foot
It is difficult even for a navy
man to grasp the full significence
of the figures that tell of the ef
fectiveness of these great ships.
Probably no battle ship is better
known to Americans than the
Oregon, which raced around
South America from the Pacific
in 1898, and with her thirty-six
guns played a most effective part
in the destruction of Cervera's
fleet on Santiago.
The Georgia, recently complet
ed. of eoual tonnage with the
Oregon, also carries thirty-six
guns, but they are vastly more
effective. The Oregon has four
3-inch guns in her main battery;
the Georgio four 12-inch guns in
her main battery. Each has
eight 8-inch guns. The Oregon
has four 6-inch guns against is
on the Georgia. The Georgia has
2 3-inch guns, whereas the Ore-
. n J
gon had '&) mere tpounuers.
Gunnery experts declare that the
Oregon develops'81 819,456 foot-'
tons of energy in five minutes of
firing, while in the same time the
Georgia develops 3,927,172 foot
tons of energy.
That is to say, the Georgia is
five times as effective as the fam
ous Oregon. This advance is due
to the increased rapidity of fire,
due to improved mechanism In
handling the guns and the im
proved methods of training the
gunners. Marvelously excellent
mechanical devices have much to
do with the greater efficiency,
but best of all is the system of
teamwork in each gun crew,
whereby every man, in obedience
to signals given, if necessary in
pantomime, does hi3 work with
all the speed and precision of a
football or baseball player, to
whom instaneous action is the
vrice of victory.
Struck by a Train.
A Southern Pacific engine, run
ning up Stirk street, near Oak,
last Saturday, struck a buggy in
which was John Wageman of
Hillsdale, throwing him out and
seriously injuring him. The en
gineer stopped the engine just in
time to save the horse, which
had been thrown across the track,
but not badly injured.
In the Long Ago.
When he was 25 years old, Mr.
Lincoln thought he would run for
the legislature and he addressed
a cross-roads meeting as follows:
"Gentlemen, fellow citizens, lam
humble Abraham Lincoln. I have
been solicited by some frienes to
become a candidate for the legis
lature. My politics can be brief
ly stated. I am in favor of a na
tional bank, I am in favor of the
internal improvement system and
a high protective tariff. If elect
ed I shall be thankful; if not it
will be all the same."
"Colonist rates will be in ef
fect March 1. l'.KiS, to April 30,

PORTLAND, JLM. 2nd to 7lh.
The Show Will Be Hie Most Beau
tiful Thing of (he Kind tver Seen
in the t nileu Slates.
The Independent has been re
quested to again call our readers
attention to the fact that the
Portland Rose Festival will soon
give a show tnat could not be du
plicated for $K)U,00. We man
agement hone and believe that
there will be more that 100,000
visitors in Portland from the
East during the festival. The
transportation companies and
Rose Fair Festival are anxious to
have every town in Oregon ad
vertise this great event, and ask
people when writing to friends
in the East, to mention the Rose
Show and give the dates, June
1 to 7. A gorgeous, beautiful
and magnificent pageant called
"The Spirit of the Golden West,"
in which it is hoped every Oregon
city will be represented with an
appropriate float indicative of
some valued resource or product
indigenous to the respective lo
cality, is being prepared. Al
ready many cities have arranged
for participation in this carnival
of floral and scenic grandeur, and
it is hoped Hilwboro will grasp
this splendid oPltunity to dis
nl:iv the maTuhcont products of
Washington cunty. The floats
. . i . I rnr.f An.n
are so laoeR" -" every Biri--
tor may knV the city that ia en
titled to credit for its production.
With the advertising that each
float will receive through the
newspapers and otherwise, the
venture will be worth many
many thousands of dollars to ev
ery city participating.

versity "hold up," the Oregon
Irrigator, published at Irrigon,
says: "This scho is one of the
foremost in the West, the most
imxrtint in Oregin, and has an
enrollment of over 400 pupils,
and the amount appropriated by
the legislature was all too small,
The bill was paei unanimously
by the 90 members of the house
and senate, an yet a few busy
bodies have held the appropria
tion up for two years, at a cost
to the state of probably ten or
fifteen thousand dollars. We do

What Leap Year Costs.
Does it ever occur to jH.ople
that leap year may, and general
ly does, touch their ixckets ap
preciably? Those wage-earners who are
paid every Friday or Saturday
suffer nothing, because they are
paid for the extra day they have
to live during the year. But
those in receipt of monthly or
quarterly cheeks for salary are
different, for they lose the pay
ment for the extra day's work.
Employers are naturally forget
ful of such little matters, and
employes are not so long-sighted
as they might be, if we may
judge from the fact that when
engagements are entered into
and contracts made for a term of
years no account is taken of that
extra day in leap year.
A simple calculation shows that
a person earning 1000 pounds a
year, paid monthly, quarterly, or
annually, finds himself out of
pocket to the extent of 2 pound,
15 shillings, as the result of leap
year, and, of course, the larger
the income the greater the loss.
The chancellor of the exche
quer, dealing with millions of the
nation's money, is not slow to
appreciaie the imxrtance of leap
year. Taking last year's budget
figures as a basis, the extra day
would mean an increase of some
397,000 pounds in gross revenue
and of 382,000 pounds in expend
itures. Interesting, too, it is to figure
out what leaj) year means in re
gard to our foreign trade. Tak
ing again the figures of our last
nnancial year, it will be found
that Tone day's extra imports
amount to the huge sum of 1,544,-
000 pounds, and one day's extra
exports to 1,202,000 pounds,
Thus from the mere fact of its
being leap year our total foreign
trade ought to be 2, 750, 000 pound
greater this year than last. Lon
