tomorrow night will open blda for
$21,000 bonda for the Improvement of
etreeta. Jhy wilt. tear 6 per cent
Interea:. payable aeml-annually, and
will be negotiable. The fact that they
will have the city back of them
makea the .bonda a fine Inveatment,
aad, Ii la believed, that tba laaue will
be takt-n up by realdenta of the city.
All blda received prior to B o'clock
tomorrow afternoon will be consider
ed. Tbe denomlnatlona will be from
$135 to 500, the majority of the lat
Among tbe a treet a to be Improved

aale of the bonda are Twelfth. Cen
ter Prom Seventh to Ninth and Wash
ington, from Second to Seventh.
Honda for the Improvement of other
atreeta will be laaued In the near
future. Heretofore Oregon City
bonda have been In great demand,
and many Eaatern financial Inatltu
tlona have made blda for them. They
are laaued for ten yeara, but have
been redeemed long before the time
of expiration In tha paat. The excel
lent financial atandlng of the city haa
alwaya cauaed an unuaually big de
mand for the bonda, and It la thought
that there will be the aame demand
for thoae tor which blda will be open
ed tomorrow night. It la the desire
to give Oregon City realdenta the pre
ference In the dlapoaal of the bonda.

AND BEGGED SILENCE
WASHINGTON. D. C. Aug. 7.
Coplea of the letters written by Rep
reaentatlve. Lafferty, who formerly
practiced before the Laud office In
Oregon City, to Mlaa Florence Kubel.
and her father, 8. J. Kubel and Ku
bel'a letter to Lafferty were made
public for the first time today.
The letter Lafferty wrote to tbe
Waahlngton schoolgirl three' montha
ago reada aa followa
"House of Repreaentatlvea, Waah
lngton. D. C Dear Mlaa Kubel: Your
picture In the paper ao Impressed me
I hope I will get to meet you aome
klme. Pleaae overlook the unconven-
tlonallty of the request If you can. I
Inclose a card to the membera family
gallery, which I hope you will uae If
you ever have occasion to visit the
Houae. I happen to be a bachelor
without any family of my own. Very
-A. W. LAFFERTY."
Thla letter la In LafTerty'a own
handwriting and he now admlia Ita
authorship. About a week after the
letter waa written, S. J. Kubel, father
ot the girl, called at LafTerty'a office.
In a statement today, Mr. Kubel aald:
s '"When I called at LafTerty'a office
and confronted blm with hla letter,
he told ne with much wringing ot hla
hands and pleaa for consideration that
he did not write th letter, but that
he knew it bad been written by one
ot the young men In hla office. He
begged me to give the matter no pub
licity and told me what It would mean
to hla politically, If tbe matter
ahould be aired In the newapapera.
He aald he -would write me a letter of
apology. If I atayed In his office while
In a letter to Lafferty Mr. Kubel
"There la Juat one point regarding
which my mind la not euti -ely clear
and that la Just what aatlafactlon I
will demand from you If the matter
doea become public property, but you
can rest assured that If I deem fur
ther conference necessary, you need
not call at eltther my house or my
office. I will find you.
"In hla letter of apology, which la
contradicted by hla former atatement,
Lafferty in part aald:
- " 'The letter which waa Bent from
my office laat Saturday to your
daughter, Mlaa Florence Kubel, .waa
not written with my knowledge or
consent, but prepared by othera In
my office. When I learned that aame
had been aent, I ' regretted it very
much, and would before thla have
taken atepa to correct the matter It I
could have thought of anything I
could have done that would not have
further embarraaaed the young lady
It aeems to me that' I am the one
that haa gotten the worat of It by the
letter having been aent. It casta re
flection upon no one but myself.
While I am the one that haa suffered
on account of It, I will gladly do all
that I can to aettle the matter, and
If you will try to prevent any further
publicity being given me In regarda
to It, you will do roe a favor that will
not be forgotten.' "

II. M. Duvall, of Eldorado, was ser
iously Injured at his home on Satur
day' while mowing hay. The horses
driven by Mr. Duvall became fright
ened, and the reins caught In the har
ness. As Mr. Duvall tried to climb
from the machine the horses started
to run, and the blade came tn
contact with hla foot. Had It not been
for the heavy woolen stocking worn
by him, which had become wrinkled,
his foot would have been aevered. A
tendon was frightfully lacerated, and
the foot was cut badly. The Injured
man called for help, and It was some
time before the horses could be re
leased from the harness and machin
ery. .-Mr. Duvall waa thrown under

amenable to the law. The Attorney
General, however, rules that the law
appllea to children who have passed
their eighth birth anniversaries and
that tbe "fifteenth year" la the year
between the fourteenth and fifteenth
The .letter follows:'. , -
""Replying to ytrars of this date, re
queating opinion or the expression
'between and Including the ages of
nine and fifteen yeara of age, as used
In Section 1. Chapter 243. General
Laws or 1911, I beg to say that aald
section reads down to and including
the phrase quoted:
'"Every parent, guardian, or other
person, In the State of Oregon, hav
ing control or charge of any child or
children between and Including the
agea of nine and fifteen years of age,
shall be required to aend auch child
or children to the public schools,"'
' "This aectlon Is very poorly drawn,
and the meaning is somewhat ambig
uous, but the general rule of construc
tion Is that If the meaning can be
deduced from the language of the act.
it must be construed accordingly, and
a child la nine years of age at the
ttnth anniversary of Ita birthday and
is fifteen years ot age at the fifteenth
anniversary of its birthday. It must,
also, be conceded that the ninth year
la the year between tbe eighth and
ninth anniversaries of . the child's
birth, and the fifteenth year Is the
year between the fourteenth and fif
"Therefore, assuming - that the
words 'including the agea' la Intend
ed to Include the ninth and fifteenth
years (and the section must be so
constructed, else tbe use of those
words would be surplusage), then the
act would cover the time, from the
eighth anniversary to the fifteenth
anniversary of tbe child's birth, and
such I am of the opinion Is the proper
construction of the act."
