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.

AID IN EUROPE
Carnegie Peace Endowment
Provides Funds.
NEW YORK. June Five hundred
thousand dollars to aid in reconstruction
of the devastated portions of France.
Belgium. Serbia and Russia; $50,000 for
the relief of the oppressed nationalities
In the far east formerly under Ottoman
control and SIOO,OOO toward the restora

Nicholas Murray Butler, president of Co
lombia university, in a report Just is
sued by the fiscal year. The Carnegie
Endowment for International Peace fur
nishes the funds for the activities of
this division.
The report states that the division i*
interested in the proposals to undertake
tbe reconstruction of the library at
Rheims, destroyed during tbe war. For
Siberia, the project most favored is to
construct and equip a modern library
building for the University of Belgrade.
“During the year.” the report states,
“tbe division has carried out the policy
of providing libraries in foreign cities
with collections of books on American
history and institutions. Complete col
lections, each of about 200 volumes, have
been presented to the library of the Uni
versity of London, to the library of the
Rorbonne. Paris; the library for Ameri
can studies In Rome, Italy, Zentralblb
liotbek, Zurich; Hibiya library, Toklo;
Peking public affairs library, Peking.”
In furtherance of the division’s aims to
foster closer educational re-allons be

and those of other eouutries, the fol
lowing is reported a* having been ac
complished :
Aided several eminent American ’du
cators in their plans to visit foreign in
institutions; suggested for appointment
names of Americans to a professorship
of journalism In the University of the
Philippines; to a professorship of agri
culture in Serbia and a professorship of
English In Czeeho-810 vs kin “Through
the offices of the Institute of Interna
tional Ednoatjon, also organized by the
endowment,” the report continues, “a
system has been developed by which
American professors may be offered the

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.
The Candle creek gold piacer mines

In for a favorable report also. 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.

SHRINE SESSION
Northwestern City Spending
Millions of Dollars in
Preparation.
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.
Hood, ML St. Helena and Mt. Adams, the
far-fJmed Columbia River highway, tbe
Ilood River valley and the Willamette
River valley will be the objective* of nu
merous automobile tours. 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. The environs of Port
land are at tbe acme of their beauty to
ward the latter part of June.
For '.hose who admire graceful lines a
complete corps of bathing girts will be on
band and will cavort In the Willamette
river for Ihe benefit of the spectators.
\Y. Freeland Kendrick of Philadelphia,
imperial potentate of the Order of the
Mystic Sbtine, will preside at the 1920
conclave.

WIRELESS FLASH
FOR SEA SIGNAL^
Sends Kearns to Ships
Enveloped in Fog.
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.

SAYS AMERICA
HAS FAILED TO
MAKE FRIENDS
Boston Business Man Gives
Views on After-War
Situation.
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

“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

Is a great feeling in favor of n reduction
of the pur- base of luxuries. This Is a

that there is no basis for the talk of a
panic.'•

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.”
