State Superintendent Acfcerman has
sent County Superintendent Bowland
the following instructions in reference
to the coming examinations : I will for
ward you soon, by express, the ques
tions for Btate and county papers. They
will be marked with an "X" which will
enable you to so distinguish them that
there will be no difficulty in your com
plying with rule XVIfl, of rules and
regulations, adopted by the state board
of education. This rule, together with
rules XIX, XX, XXI and XXII, should
be carefully explained to applicants in
order that no mistakes will be made.
These rules will be strictly followed by
this department. In order that the pa
pers from your county may be distin
guished from those of another county,
it will be necessary for them to have
some distinguishing mark. To this end.
you will instruct the applicants in your
respective counties to place the letter
"0" as an exponent to their respective
numbers, as follows: lc, 2c, 3c, 4c, 5c,
etc. Papers should be headed with
the number, date, topic, number, an
swer, etc. Place the preliminary papers
for state papers in one envelope, seal it,
and place 0 1 it the name of the county
only, and send with manuscripts. Send
manuscripts to this office, unmarked, by
express, C. O. D. The state board of
education, by the advice of the attorney
general, has adopted the following, rel
ative to primary certificates: (I) that
they are county papers and good in any
county in the state. (2) that they shall
be issued by the county board of exam
iners. (3) That they are unlimited,
that is to say, you will place no limit on
them. (4) That applicants for primary
certificates shall write on the same
questions as applicants for first, second
and third grade certificates, upon the
following branches: Reading, writing,
orthography, theory and practice of
teaching. (The remainder of the letter,
which is of much interest to teachers,
will be printed next week.)

day Affairs Noticed by the
Ringler, who has charge of the sports
at Gladstone park, is bringing Chau
tauqua and Y. M. 0. A. athletics into
disrepute by his dirty methods. The
writer has criticised his methods mor e
than once on former occasions. Last
year when the writer was reporting the
Chautauqua for the Oregonian, Ring
ler attempted to ring in one sided re
ports for publication, but they didn't
go. The Oregon City Jolly Fellows
baseball club were ruled out of the cup
contest, because they refused to play
against Ringler's paid professional
players There may be an end to this
condition of thingssometime.
It is to be deplored that the arrange
ments for the reception to the return
ing volunteers, has caused so much ill
feeling among people, who have associ
tiated together on the best terms here
tofore. Everyone should be made to
feel that they have an interest in wel
coming the returning volunteers.
The Chautauqua Association was un
fortunate this year in securing their
booklet from inexperienced printers. It
was a disgrace to the printing fraternity
and to the Association and reflects on
Oregon City in an unenviable way. If
the Chautauqua people had had a few
more days time they would no doubt
have had it printed over again in respect
Judge MeBride held an ad journed
term of circuit court Wednesday. A de
cree of foreclosure was entered in the
suit of Hiram Straight vs W. M. Cake,
etal, for $13,000 and accumulated in
terest and costs. In the suit of Rebecca
Long against J. V. Doores, executor,
the amount of the latter's claim was cut
from $1800 to $400. There will be no
more circuit court until the first week
llobbed the OrHve.
A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him as follows:
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue quoted, pain continually in back
and sides, no appetite gradually grow
ing weaker day by day. Three physi
cians had given me up. Fortunately a
friend advised trying Electric Bitters,
and to my great joy and surprise, the
first bottle made a decided improve
ment. I continued their use for three
weeks, and am now a well man. I know
they saved my life and robbed the grave
of another victim." No one should fail
to try them. Only 50:ta, guaranteed, at
George A. Harding's drug store.

That Water Commissioner,
I notice in last week's issue of your
paper the following editorial comment :
"Leonard Charman 6ays that they
had made calculations on re-electing 11.
O. Stevens as water commissioner and
they can't very well do without him."
I herewith brand said article as mal
iciously false and libelous, and calcula
ted to bring myself and the board before
the public as unscrupulous and selfish.
Beitig public officers, under bonds for
the faithful performance of our duties,
and milking written reports to tha city
council every six months which are pub
lished in the official paper we leave it to
the citi lens to criticise whether tho city
water works are being managed for the
public benefit or not.
Regarding my stand on the election of
a water commissioner, I will state that I
favored the election of Mr. Stevens, (as
one half of the council did) knowing him
to be worthy, capable and conscion tious
commissioner, one who is an exception
ally careful financier and not given to
wild-cat schemes ; just the man to look
out for the taxpayer's money, as he is a
very large taxpayer himself, It is,
therefore, very natural that after three
years' harmonious work in the board
that I should be clad to see him re-elected.
I have never said to anyone that Mr.
Stevens was indispensible to the board,
and 1 further state that any reputable
citizen, properly qualified, and elected
by a majority of the council, is entitled
to a seat in the board, and I desire to
see the election of Mr. R. D.Wilson set
tled hejond the shadow of a doubt, so
that when the new board is organized it
may be a legal body capable of transact
ing the important business of obtaining
new water supply without any question
as to their legal status. There is im
portant business on hand and the quick
er the matter is decided the better.
Desiring as wide a circulation of this
communication as your paper will per
mit, and trusting that in the future
should you desire to publish any matter
with which I may be connected, that
you will do me the justice to verify in
person any reports reputed to have
come from me, I remain,
T. Lkonahd Ciiarman.

Ike Sixth Annual Assembly Sur
passes All Previous Gather
ings Gladstone Park a City
No doubt the greatest lecturer, who
has talked on the Ohautuqua platform,
was De Witt Miller. His lectures, while
of the highest intellectual order, were
replete with brilliant sallies of wit and
wisdom. He was voted the greatest in
tellectual and entertaining orator that
ever appeared in Gladstone park.
One of the most scholarly lectures
of the assembly, was that of Professor
John B. Horner, of the Oregon Agri
cultural college at Corvallis. In fact,
in point of intellectuality, and as an ex
ponent of true literary merit, he ranks
second only to De Witt Miller. His lec
ture was a rare literary treat, and de
served to have been placed on the after,
noon or evening program. In speaking
of Oregon literature of the future, he
said: "Then along with other influ
ences, we shall draw from Grecian art,
Italian music, German tenderness,
Spanish passion, Yankee shrewdness,
French vivacity, Irish wit, English
sense, Indian courage and Oregon
dreams and visions J and Oregon litera
ture will rank as American literature,
which is English literature under a dif
ferent sky. Of the future literature of
Oregon it may be said that peace, home
and prosjerity will be the probable
themes themes that are contemplated
in the quiet of the home,
and enjoyed by the really pro
gressive classes." Professor Horner's
Chautauqua edition of his book on Ore
gon literature emodies the spirit of his
lecture, and is a library within itself.
Frank Beard, the caricaturist, was an
other talented lecturer on the Chautau
qua platform. He represented one of
the highest types of American art.
There were so many talented lectur
ers artists and musicians on the Chau
tauqua platform, that it is impossible to
Saturday night closes the most suc
cessful of all the Chautauquas held at
