It is planned to give a banquet on the nig hf' of February ,1,2th for the delegates, to the Congress in celebration of , the effective work done at the last Congress.

I , 1 hat the Pacific Coast has ample time to prepare for an ultimate influx of European immigrants, is apparent from reports received by the Oregon Scate Immigration Commission, This conclusion has been reached by that office after making an ex tensive investigation in co-operation with ihe Oregon Development League, of reported sales of thou sands of steamship ticxets on the in stallment plan to prospective immi grants via the Panama Canal is with out foundation. . Rumors that a great flood of European immigrants was to pour upon the Pacific Coast as soon as the Panama Canal was open,- .has created great anxiety amongst civic organizations. Tbe Oregon State Immigration Commission lelt that if such a throng was actually in, pros pect, it was incumbent upon the Commission to ascertain what pro visions could be made for distri bution of arriving aliens away from the congested centers. So far as a thorphgh investigation could disclose, no steamship com pany has yet quoted passengers ratesfor immigrants via the canal, and no such tickets are being sold cither for cash or on the installment plan. Persistance of th old rumors caused this office to make such in vestigations and the reports now in hand from the American Consuls j stationed at the important ports ol Europe utterly discredit the rumors Hear Professor Reddie Elocutionist, Teacher, State Lecturer At Grand Theatre Wednesday. Dec. Thirty-First Proceeds go to the Banoo Pub Ik Library. of a direct Pacific Coast imnliraiion, The state of Oregon is .especially well equipped throuch its commer ci organizations banded together to handle any possible agricultural immigration. The At lantic Coast states have not and never had such an organization as exists in this state for the distribution of agriculturists upon the soils of Oregon. Intimately positive that the favor aoie citmais ana inviting oppor tunities of the Pacific Coast will'al tract a large immigration from Europe through the canal, still the Immigration Commission feels alarm over any immediate over whelming influx.
