' ists Afraid of State
In his address nt the public library
last evening, Governor Withyconibo in
speaking of "Oregon and Its Resourc
es," placed especial stress on tho en
ormous amount of horse power going
to waste in tho rivers and Btroains of
the state. He estimated that fully
5,000,0110 horse power was available in
Oregon and predicted thut tho time
would come when engineers would
harness this power, to be used in tho
developments of the industries of tho

The governor felt assured that with

development of the state was tlio un
friendly feeling towards capital, ho
said. In conversation with eastern cap
italist, while at tiie San I'rancisco ex
position, he was told that eastern men
with money were not friendly towards
Oregon, as they were uncertain as to
what Inns would be enacted by each
legislature that might be unfriendly to

friendly feeling," said the governor,
"os we can develop tho stato only

A special tribute was paid to the

Washington, Dec. IS. Having prac
tically completed a rejoinder that is)
said to bo almost, an abrupt dismissal
of Austria's arguments, Secretary of
Htnto Lansing tins niter noon maris
public tho Austrian answer to Ameri
ca's original demands in tho Ancono,
J ho most significant features of tho
Austrian rcplv is nn insistence upon
discussion of the evidence and princi
ples involved in tho American de
mands. Poreign Minister Biirian commented
on tho "sharpness" of tho original
note but held Austria was entitled to a
show down of America's facts. As to;
tho Austrian commander who sank tho
Anconii, tho Vienna foreign office held
that tho note "does not in any way
sufficiently warrant attaching blame"
to nun, even if American contentions
nro correct nnd a "most rigorous legal
conception" were opplicd to judgment
of tho case:
Tho note held Austria not to bo f nil V

Austria, Held that flic ouglu to cilice
precise specifications as to tiie circum
stances on which tho United State
based its contentions. In tho original
American note said Austria was "room
for doubt." The United States failed
to designnto persons upon whom it re
lied for it a evidence, "and to whom it
apparently believes it may attribute a
higher degree of credibility than to)
tno commander ot tho imperial ana
Further, America gave no names of
porsons who lost their lives.
But, said Biirian, "in view of the;
fact thut the Washington cabinet has
now mndo a positive statemont" con-
corning loss of lives, Austria "in in
principle ready to enter into nn ex-
ehungo of views in the nffair."
In whnt some regarded as rather curt
language, Austria however reserved th
right to maintain its own legal views
in discussion of the ense, and queried
as to why America referred to the
Gernian-Americna submarine contro
versy settlement, particularly as Aus
tria "by no menus possesses knowledge)
of all tho pertinent correspondence" in
that situntion. At the Biimo time, Aus
tria hold tho cases did not parallel.
