C OMMISSIONS ON SOLICITIMI AI.M.
What are the ethic of eleemosynary
solicitation? Like Ihe etiquette of pri
vate cars, this question is entirely mod
ern, ami there is nothing in the deport
ment books regarding it. The point
hich raiees this interehtinif question we
take from a Taoma diKpatch concerning
another Camejjie library building. This
dipatch tells ns that Ir. V. Stewart
wanta lo be paid t3,To for soliciting a
gift of fTS.OW from Andrew Carnegie to
erect a library building in Tacoma ; that
be is the financial agent for Whitwortli
College; that he ii allowed five-j-er-cent.
commission by lhat school on all moneys
he collects ; that the city ought to pay
hioi a similar amount. The Tacoma
Library Coaiinittee is not inclined to
K'ant Dr. Stewart the commission asked,
which is a five-per-cent. commission.
That strikes us as being distinctly low
the commission, not the procedure.
Architects get five per cent, advertising
solicitors all the way from fifteen to
twenty five per cent. Why, then, should
nut a solicitor of alms get five per cent.?
The Lord loveth a cheerful giver. The
laborer is worthy of his hire. If Ir.
Stewart can make Carnegie cheerfully
give Tacoma "i.OOO for a library, is nut
the feat worth $3,750 as the doctor's
hire? Nowadays such a very material
view is taken of scooping the alms of
millionaires that we see no reason why
the soliciting cf such alms should not be
put upon a business basis. If Dr. Stew
art could get another f'5,000 out of Car
negie for Tacoma, would not Tacoma
gladly give him $3,750 for his hire? The
prejudice against commissions for alms,
soliciting seems to us out of date.
The State Board of Agriculture are
making some wonderful improvements
at the state fair grounds, and old timers
will hardly recognize the place when
they attend Oregon's greatest fair this
fall. The old pavilion is being enlarged
to double its siz, and after the best ex
hibits ever seen in the state are arranged
there will be ample room left for an
auditorium, a thing that has been needed
for a long time. A bran new np to date
creamery building is being erected ; also
where the best dairy display ever made
in the state will certainly be snen. The
machinery hall is being enlarged, new
cattle stalls, sheep pens, bog stys, and
horse stables are being built. A cozy
farm cottage, bay barn, and new side
walks are also on the list of improve
ments, and nothing will be left undone
to accommodate the exhibitor and enter
tain the visitor at the state fair this fall.
