The joint committee to represent Al

Philomath last night for discu;sion of
the subject. A practical engineer re
ported the plan feasible so far as obser
vation can discern and the ygreatest
problem to solve would seem to be the
securing of the right-of-way along the
proposed line. This would devolve
largely on the people who will be bene
fitted by thejiew line and if the price
is deemed unreasonable the project will
be abandoned. With a united effort on
the part of all the road can be secured.

been a perfunctory .duty. With Dr.
Hale it was different. It was the daily
service of a minister to God which
came to be recognized in the years
that he occupied the post as one of
the most eloquent of the day. even
though so brief as to be carried in .a
paragraph. The aged minister took oc
casions of illness and death in tlie
senate to preach little gems of sym
pathy, consolation and eulogy.
He was a friend of every man in
the senate. He delighted in his inter
course with the senators and lovedto
talk of affairs and books with them.
He was close to Senator Clark of
Arkansas, one of the most profound
scholars of the senate, and was very
chummy with Senator Frye of Maine.
Dr. Hale used the vice president's
room as hfs office. It was here that
his daughter helped him don his big
black ministerial robe for his morning
prayer, and from this office the little
pages escorted him to the senate cham
ber. The attentlveness of the daugh
ter of the minister was often comment
ed On as a beautiful tribute of love. .
With visitors Dr. Hale was patient
and kindly. He took delight in meet
ing strangers, and the capitol guides
never found him in a mood when they
could not approach him. Although he
was a man who had traveled little in
the west, his knowledge of the United
States , and its citizenship was great.
He had the artlessness of a politician
without its wiles. If a guide intro
duced the chaplain to a party from
Mariou. O.. or Tallahassee, Fla., or anju
other place it recalled to Dr. Hale the
memory of a man who had lived there.
With this he put his visitors at their
ease. He signed autograph's cheer
fully, and the senate pages never
feared to ask him to write his name
for a visitor.
Dr. Hale's great influence over men
was not sufficient to teach the United
States senate to pray, although he tried
hard enough.. : When he first assumed
the duties of chaplain over the body
he asked that the senators join him In
repeating the Lord's Prayer at the end
of his brief morning sermon. Day
after day he called on the senators to
pray, but the response was so feeble
that he despaired and abandoned the
practice. His two banner pupils were
Senators-Piatt and Depew. Senator
Piatt always mumbled the prayer with
him, and Senator Depew came In
strong at the end. The pages respond
ed to his efforts, and all of the little
fellows lined up daily and participated
in the prayer.
Dr. Hale was never able to master
the details of his own affairs, and he
was frequently placed in- an embar
rassing position by his absentminded
ness., A former magazine editor re
called recently that several years ago
he bought a story from Dr.. Hale and
later found that another magazine had
bought the same story. When Dr.
Hale's attention was called to it he re
membered and sent a letter of apology,
inclosing another story,' a better one,
to soothe the feelings of the- unlucky
His habit of Ignoring all of the de
tails of his home and business life pro
voked one of his brother ministers into
asserting that If Dr. Hale had not
been such a success as a minister he
would have 'undoubtedly been a tramp.
In Dr. Hale's home at Roxbury,
Mass., there is a collection of the most
valuable literary works of the present
century. Books and prints, pamphlets,
monograms and manuscripts with
out -.. number are hidden away there.
Many autograph copies of books and
manuscripts submitted by friends for
his perusal and later sent him as gifts
go to make up a collection of material
which could occupy the attention of a
literary student for a lifetime. Much
of the material In Dr.- Hale's library
was handed down to him bv his fa
ther, and- his own active life has pro
duced nearly sa equal amount. His
own manuscripts are there, and the
collection will no doubt be preserved
intact by his son.
His interpretation of the "National
Idea" was given by Dr. Hale as In
spiration for his literary masterpiece,
the parable of "The Man Without a
Country," the most remarkable argu
ment for patriotism and fidelity to the
land of one's nativity ever written.
According to Dr. Hale's explanation;
the theme of the story," the need that
just such forceful, active, partisan pa
triotism as inflamed his own heart be
brought close to the hearts of Ameri
cans, was working within him at least
fifteen years before it found expres
sion in the story. Washington Cor.

Bishop Doane Warns Girls Against

. Bishop William Crosweil Doane
said in n address the other day to
the graduating class of St. Agnes'
school at Albany, N. Y.: . , ""
r "I cannot count It necessary and
perhaps it is not wise for me to cau
tion you against the loudly shrieked
call to give women the right to vote
and to be voted for.
"1 am disposed to think that the
fraiet and decent appeal of a few of
the-Jsocalleu su2;ragists will be , so
drowned in the sort of howling der
vish performance of the so called suf
fragettes that it will fail of any effect.
. "At- any rate, the argument should
be addressed rather to legislators than
to you, except so far as one is justified
in saving here to you that your wom
anhood will gain nothing by suffrage
and is losing every day in its dignity
and Its true Jnfluence by the hysterical
ciamor which is employed In the pur
suit of this chimera."

drama,. "An Englishman's Home,"

him what play he saw.
