SEN. GLASS TO BE PRESIDENT S ’FRISCO ENVOY Will Execute Wilson’s Orders on Floor of Democratic National Convention. WELL UP ON TREATY WASHINGTON. -Tune sr Senator Car ter Glas, a potential presidential can didate, will be one of President Wilson’s representatives at the San Francisco con vention, it was learned today. According to information in whitehouae circles, the president will depend largely on Senator Glass and Secretary of Interior John Barton Payne to execute his orders on the floor of the democratic convention. Senator Glass, it was learned, is already “loaded for bear.’’ The Virginia senator has prepared a lengthy speech which he will deliver in the convention in answer to any attack which may be made upon the administra tion of President Wilson. It Is understood that Senator Glass is particularly well prepared to offer an answer to William Jennings Bryan on the treaty question. The president has given Senator Glass fall value of his views on the treaty, and the Virginia senator has drawn a power ful argument in favor of the convention going on record as favoring immediate ratification of the peace treaty with nothing further than interpretative res ervations. While the whltehotise maintains an amazing political silence there is con siderable speculation here as to the pos sibility of the president indorsing Senator Glass as his choice for the democratic nomination. Senator Glass has the pledged support of the Virginia delegation, but bis friends declare that he is not considering himself a senate candidate at present. John Barton Payne, secretary of the interior, Is mentioned as a likely candi date with presidential support, but he has plans which may carry him away from the convention before it has ended and may not he available at the psycho logical moment. $500,000 VOTED FOR AID IN EUROPE Carnegie Peace Endowment Provides Funds.

ALASKA MAKES BIG STRIDES IN EXPORTTRADE Imports No Longer Outdis tance Outgoing Business— New Mining Boom. SEATTLE, Wash., June 3. The rapid commercial strides made by Alaska dinr ing the last year have been such that no longer do imports far outdistance Alas kan exports. This is the nucleus of a report made public recently by J. L. McPherson, manager of the Alaskan bureau of the Seattle Chamber of Comperes. To prove his contention that Alaska has seen the most suostantially progressive year in its history. McPherson outlines the various industries of the northern country, embracing reports on mining, timber, agriculture, furs and fisheries, anil gives a brief summary of the busi ness outlook for tffg "land of the mid night sun.” McPherson states that the big dis covery for the year 1019 was a rich deposit of silver opened at the Pre mier mine, near the brad of Portland -anal. This mine is located in Brit ish Columbia, about a mile frem ' the Alaskan boundary, but the natural outlet, however, is across Alaskan ter ritory. Anew town has sprung up rlose by the Premier mine, on the Alaskan side, and is called Itydcr. IHs roveries also of Tpry >rge <lejwsits of high-grade silver ore have been made n this district. Still another Important raining de velopment in Alaska during the past rear is that of the gold quart* dls eoverles on Nixon’s Fork, a tributary of the Takotn.i river, which Joins the Kus kowim river at McGrath. SOO allies above Its mouth These mines give every vromlse of t*connng rich produbers, Mc- Pherson states.

At Juneau the Alaska-Jureau Mining Com pany is reported to have Increased it* output and tint by the end of 1920 will ne milling £.OOO tons of ore a dav. Sim iiarly the Alaska Gastlneau Mining Com pany has increased its working force and has averaged an output of about 5 400 tons of ore a day. Due to the Increased cost of labor and other han dicaps. McPherson ielates that these two world-famous .nines hare been operating under a great handicap. >. The dlscoverv of platinum about eight miles from Valdes has resulted In con siderable activity and development in this region. Shipments of ore will be considerably enlarged also as a result of the good work done at the La Touche copper mine. - 1 The completion of the government rail road from Fairbanks to the Nenana coal field will give an added impetus to min ing in this district, the report points out. Oil developments have continued at Kntaiia, end the company operating this property has a local market for all its output, ifce oil being refined on the ground. However, the output of fishing products for the year 1919 proved less than that for 1918 due to the shortage of the run of salmon in the Bristol bay and south western regions. Restrictive measures are being devised to protect this valuable fishing section. At Seldovia, anew clam cannery bas been established, while at Petersburg two new firms are engaged in the business of canning crab meat. Tlie timber industry iti Koutheqstern Alaska Ims a most successful year. Me- Pherson reports, the mills, in most In stances, running to full capacity. The timber feature of the year was the con tract secured by the Petersburg mill to furnish between 00,000090 and 70.000.000 feet of lumber for shipment to Australia.

PROGRAM IS COMPLETE PORTLAND, Ore., June s.—The forty sixth session of the imperial council of the Mystic Shrine will be held in this city on .lime 22-24. The city of Portland expects to be host to more than 100,000 visitors in anticipation of which she is preparing an elaborate program. Shriners from every corner of the world will be in attendance at the great can clave. Temples in Hawaii, Toronto and along the Atlantic coast bare long since signified their intention of coming here en masse for the great gathering. W. j. Hoffman, bead of the convention committee, attests that the Measton of the Shriners in Portland this year will be the largest convention ever held any where. A tremendous effort is being made by the city of Portland to measure up to the magnitude of the convention. Millions of dollars are being expended to beautify the city and to provide living quarters for the more than 100.000 strang ers to be received. With the ending of the national demo cratic convention at San Francisco, Port land expects to be boat to a thousand or more guests whom they expect will re turn east from San Franciaco via Port land. PKBSHIMi TO BE WELCOMED. Gen. John J. Pershing has signified bis intention of attending the convention. A special welcome is planned for him and a demonstration in his honor is now be ing planned. Portland is rapidly making prepara tions to handle the crowrds, and with her ♦OO hotels and more than 11.000 rooms, besides private home accommodations, sleeping cars and public buildings to be converted into dormitories it now seems only a question of whether or not the railroads can handle ail those who desire to come here. More than 400 Pull man ears will be parked in the ter minal yards here, adjacent to the Union station, so that those desiring to retain their Pullman accommodations may do so und still be within the city limits. The work of arranging bousing facilities for the Shriners is being bandied prin cipally by the A1 Kadar Temple of Port land. Like a thunderbolt from x clear sky the men who have charge of the housing of the Shriners suddenly realised that a great many of the thousands of Shriuers coming here would bring their wives along and M>jne, perhaps, their whole families. But the committee is not des pairing. At the present moment seventy seven bands and ninety patrol* have signed up to attend the 1920 Imperial Council. SOMETHING DOING EVERY MINUTE. The program of entertainment is aald to exceed both Ju volume and quality that of any previous Bhriner conclave. Conceit* will be in progress steadily in different parts of the city from 10 o'clock in the morning until midnight. Every evening will witness a horse show. Benny Leonard, tbe lightweight champion, will fight a ten-round bout us the main fea ture of un elaborate and extensive boxing program. An electrical night pageant, three parade*, on# for each day, and a grand ball are other numbers on the Shriuers program. Nor will Portland f rget to display its scenic wonders to its visitors. Mt.

And the season will be a most propitious one for these side tours tu that the annual Rose Fes tival of Portland will open during Shriners' week.

LONDON, .Tune i —Marconi had re cently the idea of establishing a ea laboratory to carry out wireless experi ments that could not be made on land, l'p to the present this privilege has been left to the governments, ex ept In a few crises, in which Important tests were ac complished on board liners while cross ing the Atlantic For instance, while on board the American lluer Philadelphia Marconi discovered the difference between day and night transmission, and on the Italian ship Principals* Mafalda, while voyaging between Genoa and Buenos A!r*. new long-distance transmission records' were created. The siuiil] steam yacht E.'pctra. which will sail shortly from Southampton, em bodies this Idea in its preliminary phase. It marks only a start, and not ail the Instrument necessary for carrying out ex perlinctits in the different directions of modem wireless development* could be fitted on board. The program of this cruise, which will last for eight or nine weeks, is consequently limited. KM’KKIMKNT on TWO POINTS. It is understood that Marconi will make experiments on one or two definite Points. He has been lately able to de velop waves of an extreme shortness of three or four meter* from a wireless transmitter of very considerable power. These short waves can be reflected in beams like light, and con lie conveyed from the transmitting station by means of reflectors of a special mirror fitted in the receiving stutlon. It Is a searchlight without a light. In a thick fog a ship fitted with that npikirntus will receive on It* rotating mirror a beam of light. The mirror will then automatically stop, indicating the direction from which the signal of the other ship is coming. There is no vis ibility and ypt there is vision. If two apparatus exist at the two ends of the ship the angles formed by the inclina tion of the mirrors will give also the means for calculating how far off the transmitting station Is. Once the other ship is exactly located, the direction In which she is moving and her speed is easily found. Then wireless telegraph and telephone count into play and colli sion is avoided. These “short wave beams” have been transmitted so far up to u distance of twenty or thirty miles, and they mark one of the most striking developments of fog signals at sea. Experiments have been going on successfully at Carnarvon for some time. Marconi will devote a great deal of his attention to this now development of wireless during ills eruis-' and he is confident that the apparatus will soon be ready for genera! use. WEATHER AT 7 A. M.

Mis* Tnta Is already a B. A., having graduated with honors at Bom bay university. She also received the Uobden club medal for economics at the same scat of learning. “Bombay ‘ls the most advanced city in Indiana in regards to tho question of women's rights “We have had the municipal franchise on the same terms a- the men for twen ty-lire years and we are now trying for the legislative vote.” continued Mist Tata. “We are going to make a big effort for social and labor reforms. “We also hope to change the condi tions in the big factories throughout tile province and by such means bring the women worker* to a realization of their power. “Many women of high Hindu and Mos lem families come to Bombay to study. “We have a committee there which represents forty-five branches of associ ations of Indian women. “After my term here I expect to return to Bombay, by which time I trust that our laws may be so amended that I will be permitted to practice nt tbe Indian bar.” Miss Tata is but twenty-two year* of age and she wears her national costume Oenesth n very modish fur coat. She Intendeds accompanying her mother to the world's congress of women at Geneva, nt which conference her mother Is a delegate. It Is probable that Miss Tate wilt he invited to address the congress on the needs of the Indian women, and she is preparing a speech for the occasion. Her mother, Mrs. Herabai A.

EUROPE IS RESENTFUL BOSTON, June s.—“ America stands in the position today of having lost every thing we went to war for.” So declares Louis R. Liggett, president of the United Drug Company, who lias just returned from a ninety-day tour <-f Europe investigating economic con ditions. Liggett declares Jhat: (1) The United States has made an enemy of nil the foreign-speaking people of Europe; (2) this country has lost commercially through "improper representation at the pence conference;" (3) Belgians ere resentful because the value of the Ger man mark, which the Germans forced on them, hfls noi been held up; (4) Italy claims that President Wilson has failed to keep his promises; (5) Englhnd has kept the value of a pound around $4. which militates against British trading with the United States. SUMS UP FEELING IN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. After summing up the European situ ation Mr. Liggett said: “Let's take up France first. In sows business circles in this country France is extremely discredited Industrially, both because it had to stand the brunt of the war, and because the American people are afrtid of strikes in France and afraid that the socialist movement is gaining too great a headway. “The facts are these: The people here do not realize the fundamental strength and recuperative power of the French. They do not realize that 80 per cent of the French people are engaged in agri cultural pursuits and only 20 per cent in manufacturing. These 80 per cent own from one thousand to ten thousand francs. What chance 1s there for the bolshevlsts or the socialists ever amount ing to anything in France v-hen nearly every citizen is a capitalist? France is prosperous. “It Is absolutely true that sugar is soiling in England today at the same price tt is here plus freight charges and the sugar tax. There is a sugar short age the world over. China and India afe< denuded of sugar. I believe the reason for this is that before the war there was a world supply for one year of sugar on hand. The war used up this entire supply and the production was halted. “England is algo having prohibition un conscloualy thrust upon her. The first step in this is the irw which permits a saloon to keep open only six hours a day. A moat interesting experiment is being tried at Carlisle, a municipality i-f about a hundred thousand popula tion, up near the Scottish border. The government has taken over all the sa loons. then paid the keepers for their licenses, stock and fixtures and installed the keepers as managers. Under this government control food has been intro duced and the places are practlealy res taurants. ENGLAND HAS GOOD HOLD KKNF.RVE. “The ec nemle conditions In England are very good. England has a feold re serve of about per cent and money Is plentiful. There is general prosperity and work for every one. English work men with greater wages are muring into more spacious quarters and the housing problem which has become acute is be ing roet by the government in a some what novel manner. All non-essentlai building was ordered stopped on June t, when the government plana to set the carpenters and other bnißJlug trades workmen at work building homes “England has kept the value of the pound under four dollars as a means, in my belief, to prevent trading outside. England can net stand on a free trade basis and meet competition. The gov ernment takes the next best step to a tariff and keeps the pound down so the merchants can not buy from America. At the present time all that they sre buying frog us are necessaries of life, principally food products. With the opening by the British of the oli field* In Mesopotamia and their purchase of the Shell Oil Company. 1 bl lieve will result in a later reduction of their purchase of gasoline and oils from this country. I can not see a great deal of export business between England and the Cnited States. “I am of the opinion that the increased production in the agricultural lands of Europe and the consequent decrease in Ihe export of food products to Europe will balance the crop shortage which is generally predicted for this country. So while the crops may be reduced the ex ports will also be reduced. "There is one thing I found In Eng land as well as here, and that Is there Is a great feeling in favor of n reduction of the pur- base of luxuries. This Is a very helpful sign. I am of the opinion that there is no basis for the talk of a panic.'• Plan Motor Truck Cross-Country Run WASHINGTON, June 5. The Motor Transport Corps of the army announces a transcontinental run for army trucks and other vehicles, to start from Wash ington on June 14 for Los Angeles, Cal., over the Bankhead highway.

Weekly Rate orXB GERMANY ABLE TO PAY BIG WAR indemnity; London Merchant Gives Views on Nation’s Possibilities— Sound Methods Used. LONDON, Juno 6.—" Germany la ca pable of paying the indemnity to the last penny,” aald a prominent London mer chant who recently returned from the land of the Teuton, where he spent several montha. In an interview given to a London newspaper, in which he spoke anony mously, the merchant in question stated that he convinced himself from observa tions while in Germany that the country is recuperating with wonderful rapidity and that the government is stable. He stated also that reports of “unrest” In Germany have undoubtebly kept away many business men who might have otherwise made secure some of the rem nants of their business in that ere now. “I visited practically all the large towns,” he said, “and In none of them were -conditions anything like what I bad been led to believe. The present government in Germany Is, In my opin ion, perfectly stable. “I speak of thins* as I saw them and as I found them. I believe this govern ment of Germany has the confidence of the people and it was lack of Confidence rvhich made the Kapp government a fail ure. “Food in Germany is not scarce, as we have been led to believe, end in some in stances the prices approximate those in England. Further, there is this to re member: The Germans are very indus trious. and they have been putting their back into the work of regenerating their country. “Agriculture has been worked to a high pitch, and the forthcoming harvest is expected to be a bumper one. Every man, woman and child has been work ii g bard for their harvest salvation, and tkev seem likely to get it, Laborists have seen that there is but one way to combat the large Imports of their coun try, and that ts to produce and pro duce. “They expect to reduce ths imports very considerably after this summer. Cattle and horses are quite plentifnL Clothing is practically the only article which is very high priced. “In Germany today it is possible to get a glass of good whisky at 6d. In London the same whisky would be about t>. fid. Here are some figures which the people of this country ought to re member. They are taken from a docu ment which may be regarded as authen tic, and though they are only approxi mate, they are near enough to be re garded a* fact. “In 1914 Germany had about 20.000.000 cuttle. Todav it is estimated that she has about 17,000.000. “The number of goats in Germany to day is over 4.000,000, a large increase over what she had before the war. Goat milk is being substituted very satisfac torily for cows’ milk. “The low value of the mark it possible for the visitor to make sort* av-tonlshing purchases. The fact is thal officially the Germans are living on the bare necessaries of life, bnt actually they are able to obtain anything they want if they have the money—and there Is plenty of money in Germany today. "Tt may be that others have not had the same experience as I have had. but I have come from Germany with the firm conviction that the country ts able to pay; but they will not pay If they can get free of their debts to the allies.” UNIVERSITY INCREASES PAY.
