good sised audience greeted Chancellor An

an address on "Problems of Greater Amer

In the consular and diplomatic service of

strengthening of our Pacific coast defenses.
The trans-Rocky mountain country is ver

Russia has been trying to build a power
ful navy, first near St. Petersburg, then in
the Black sea, now In the Pacific, and it
la not building It for fun. Here ne asked
the suggestive question, "How far Is it
from Port Arthur to San Francisco? The
traditional friendship of Russia has re
sulted from a supposed common hatred for
Great Britain. We cannot permanently
have the friendship of both Russia and
