cussed Lust Migbt
Like the county recorder's office and
the real estate men, the Commercial
club has takca on a uew life. The
monthly meeting lust evening was so
full of ginger and pep and so many
practical matters were dacuso-ed that the
old timers with the perpetual grouch
about the club, had he been present,
would have found himself iu (ne wrong
With more than 100 repieseutativc
business and professional nun present,
the session started out with the an
nouncement by Kobert C. l'aulus, presi
dent of the club, that speeches would be
limited to five minutes eacii. After
this information, members began to
show a keen interest iu affairs and ap
peared more cheerful and hopeful.
W. M. Hamilton said the city whs in
terested in bigger payrolls and that ho
was surprised to find any opposition
among members of the city council to
vacating the foot of Trade street to
bring a ."00,OUO enterprise to tfte city.
Hamilton For Mia
As to the claim that Minto island
would bo shut off if the street was gtv
en to the paper mill, Mr. Hamilton said
that he had investigated mid found
thut Mission street could bo used just
as well or even Bellevue, which had
been used until two yetirs ago. The
funning loads that came from the isli.nd
were now using Mission mrroi.
As to tho foot of Court stret which
will bo given to the city in exchange
for foot of Trade street, Mr. Hamilton
said that during tho ferrv and bridge
troubles of a few years ugo, riiaui
had recommended the foot of Court for
a ferry. As to the current in the river
at this point, and the dock wishing
away once upon a time, he said that
was year ago and since then no cur
rent of the river has shifted to the Polk
county side. Hence all this claim that
Minto island would be made vcluelc&i,
was without any truth whatever.
Edward Schunke, councilman from
the fifth ward said: " V'ou may rest
assured that tho council is for tho pa
per mill. Thero it absolutely no need of
alarm. This matter will go through the
council Ell right when the tune comes.
It cannot be acted on for 30 days. The
council has already voted in favor of
giving what the paper mill wanted.
Thero has been a lot of loud talk about
tho council not favoring the mill, but
this is newspaper talk mosrvy. When
two or three men make loud talks, it
generally gets into the newspapers when
nothing is said about tho real work or

In tho matter of the Btraliorn railway

f i oiu tho same state which is cited by
the attorney general.
In addition to tho long list of cases
cited, the attorney general goes quite
extensively into the question at issue.
" I'uder the Oregon constitution, upon
tho death of tho governor, the office of
governor devolves upon the secretary of

"There aro many respectliMlo authori

The attorney general also points out
lit length, citing strong authorities, the
similarity between the provisions of the
federal constitution rclutlvcs to tho
presidential succession and tho provis
ions of the Oregon constitution relative
to the succession to tho executive offi
ces. Under the federal constitution it
is cited that five times vice-presidents

superiors and that the vice-president has

Washington, April 10. American
troops are freezing to death in Russia
because the allied council, "the exist

presence there, Senator Johnson, Cali
fornia, said today.
"This league governed by the allied
council decreed the Bussiun adventure.
The United Ktates objected and fur
six months resisted," suid Johnsnu, in
a statement issued today.
"The United Htntcs was outvoted and
finally its opposition was broken down
and the dec re of foreign nations iigiiinst
the wishes of those in command of our
government was carried nut.
"American boys were sent to North
