The Commercial Club has been
blamed by Seventh street merchants
for the slowness of the city council
in having Seventh street paved. If
the councilman for the district want
ing streets will not take up his clients
fight and the people of the district
do not take enough interest to insist
upon the improvement and then camp
on their trail until the work is ordered
nothing can be expected. The coun
cil will not know what is wanted with
out being informed by the people. If
they were high salaried city servants
they might be expected to dig into the
needs of a district but under the pres
ent plan it is another matter.
Seventh street needs attention and
should have it, but the Commercial
Club is not resposible for the condi
tion of the street or the acts of the
council in that or any other matter.
The club is doing a good work but
street work is not in its line; howev
er, if the Live Wires are petitioned
to aid in any civic work, they gladly
do their part.
By MOORFIELD STOREY. Boston Lawyer
UR people are beset with
trouble which they encounter, however slight, is to be found
in a new law, and they rush to the legislature with every sort
of crude proposal for legislation. .
A R ESULT A FLOOD OF
THE INHABITANTS OF EACH STATE EVERY YEAR DR TWO YEARS,
AND ANY PUBLIC SPIRITED CITIZEN WHO WATCHES THE LEG
ISLATURE AND TRIES TO PREVENT FOOLISH LAWS CANNOT BUT
BE AMAZED AT THE WAY IN WHICH OUR COUNTRY IS GOV
ERNED. . X. ,
With this torrent of laws that pours out upon the country there
goes NO INCKEASE WHATEVER OF RESPECT FOR THE
LAW, but rather the reverse. The more there are the more to break.
The legal profession has SUNK IN" POPULAR ESTIMATION",
and it is largely the fault of the lawyers that this has come about.
However, the task of reform is not so easy as it might be imagined.
Progress in science is welcomed by everybody, but progress in
politics, social life or the law is a different matter. Upon any existing
evil in any one of them some one now-FATTENS and is sure to op
pose a change. Nevertheless the leaders of tbe legal profession realize
that something must be done. ' XX .
A CHANCE FOR "DETAILS"
When Senator Bailey was called
out of line with the Denver platform
of 1908, because the platform demand
ed free lumbr and the senator was
supporting a lumber "tariff for reve
nue only,' he answered that the plat
form declared a general principle of
action, while he was dealing with "the
details of practical legislation." The
Texas senator does not stand alone
among Democrats in drawing such a
distinction between principle and pol
icy. The detail school in Democratic
statesmanship is not small. It is al
ways large enough to divide the par
ty, whenever it is trusted with full ;
responsibility, enough to provoke un
certainty, doubt and delay, and to
precipitate paralysis or panic.
The Baltimore platform is rich in
opportunities for the detail school.
It is a veritable pudding filled with
"detail plums" and if the party should
this year be placed in control of exec
utive and legislative power, everyone
of these plums will be plucked out by
detail Democrats. In fact, Congress
man Fitzgerald of New York, a states
man of infinite detail, has already
picked out one, found in the antiop
tion plank, and has announced that
plank's nullification in its use of the
qualifying word "pernicious." And
there is not a plank in the Baltimore
platform without one or more quali
fying words ready made for the uses
of detail statesmanship. The plank
on campaign contributions says: "We
pledge the Democratic party to the
enactment of a law prohibiting any
corporation from contributing to a
compaign fund, and any individual
contributing any amount above a rea
If any legislation in line with this
plank is ever attempted in a Demo.
! cratic Congress, the detail school will
make its stand around the word "rea
sonable." So long as individuals may
contribute, individuals will contribute
for the corporations they represent,
but if their contributions are to be
limited, Democratic campaign funds
will not be getting out of corpora
tions as much as they could get oth
erwise. In Missouri, once upon a
time, an individual representing a cor
poration contributed $2100. His con
nection with the corporation being so
generally known that the publication
of his name as a contributor would
have revealed the real source of the
contribution, the money was credited,
in the published report, to the chair
man of State Democratic Committee.
Whether the amount contributed was
a "reasonable maximum' or not, it
seems to have been considered large
enough to cover up as being what
Cardwell later caled, at Independ
ence, "a dignified sum." We take it
that "a dignified sum' is also a "rea
sonable maximum," but the language
of the Baltimore plaform leaves so
much room for evasion and sidestep
ping that the safest conclusion is that
the'Democrats, if they had the power
to legislate it into law, would divide
the notion that the remedy for any
NEW LAW IS LET LOOSE UPON
on the "details of practical legisla
tion" and leave individuals represent
ing corporations to contribute all that
can be got out of the corporations
NEW RAILROAD WILL
!BE BOON TO SANDY
Sandy, on the Mount Hood automo
bile road, is a growing center for the
Sandy Valley. At present half a doz
en new buildings for general business
purposes are under construction
there, and the town is making rapid
growth m all lines. Sandy recently
was incorporated to provide v power
to police the town.
Virtually all the travel for West
ern Mount Hood passes through the i
place. It has a population estimated j
at from 300 to 400 people Surround- j
ed by a prosperous farming and fruit j
district, vast tracts of timber, water !
power and other resources, Sandy has j
became a' place of importance. It is !
2G miles from Portland and about 400 i
feet above the Sandy river. It is con- j
nected With the Estacada Electric I
Railway line by automobile stage, !
which runs to Boring in less than half 1
an hour. . !
Sandy has an active Commercial
Club, which assists in locating men !
seeking homes on the vacant tracts j
in the immediate vicinity. Edward I
Bruns is secretary of the club. j
At present the Multnomah & East-,
ern Railway Company is seeking a j
franchise through Sandy for its line, I
which is to connect with the Mount I
Hood .Railway at Cottrell, six miles j
away. Through the efforts of the j
Sandy Commercial Club, a $5000 bond j
was subscribed and will be pajd to

about 1200 feet. The land about it '
is comparatively level. J

Sandy also has a $3000 Methodist 1
Church, a $3000 Catholic church, Odd
fellows lodge, Rebekahs, Artisans,
Grange, Fruit Growers' Association,
library, Commercial Club and other ,
organizations. The town is perched j
nv u-nn its ncPnerv la vmsnmaRs- i
ed.' There is much vacant land in
the neighborhood which is held at
moderate prices. Much of the land
is logged-off and easy to clear,
soil is extremely rich and deep. Many ;
fine farms may be seen with excellent
homes. The oat .field on the east" side
of Sandy, owned by A. Mienig, is as
fine a field of grain as can be seen
Many Portland men have invested
in tracts on the bluff above Sandy,
where they have built Summer homes
Among the most conspicuous is the
Summer home of . Otto Kleeman,
which stands on the bluff. The view
is beyond description, especially to
ward the east, where Mount Hood is
constantly in sight.

of Sandy, is , very j

Masculine fashions are often perpet
uated through, the gradual acquisition
of a gentleman's cast off clothes by
his servants. A powdered footman of
today wears the costume of a George

a nobleman of the time of George 111.

tons, wears what was known in the

A Quick Decision.
"Huh!" suarlea the railroad editor.
"Here's a story that in one place calls
a man Brudge and In another place
refers to him as Bridge. What do you
think of that?"
"Merely n question of you or I." re
marked the statehouse man flippantly.

a problem which is now confronting
the people of all progressive commun
ities. It is gratifying to see that promi
nent and influential citizens of the
town are willing to give their assist
anse and influence toward any worthy
cause to make Oregon City a model
city, that we may be proud of its in
stitutions and moral conditions.. If

er material second to none. The
great cities are realizing the fact
more and more that for the proper
development of physical and mental
conditions of the rising generation,
proper conditions must be provided.
Our great endowed institutions of
learning which are second to none,
and even Oregon City has reason to
be proud of its churches and educa
tional institutions, yet our schools
are lacking the fundamental princi-
pies for the proper development of
the best manhood and womanhood
while a great improvement has been
effected within the last two years for
which our worthy city school super
intedent is deserving much credit and
praise, yet I hope to see the day
when a gymnasium and manual train
ing will be in connection with every
school, supplied with proper instruct
ors and become one of the necessary
requirements in our school course. I
know from a boy of mine what little
instruction he received in manual
training he has learned something of

school system, where an army of ath

by an old-time custom compels every
male member of royal connection to
serve am apprenticeship at some me
chanical trade and for the proper
physical development insists on daily
exercise in the gymnasium, whereby
the stamina and physical powers are
retained and not become imbeciles,

geny are becoming and every female
member is trained in all the duties
of good housekeeping by a thorough
course in domestic science. Many of
their methods might be applied here.

orably treated for his service in Rev

realizing the necessity of such a
course and making it a success. The
Catholics-in Portland, of the Albina
district, bought a whole block at a
high price on Stanton street, enclosed
it with a high fence for the purpose
of a playground for the children of its
denomination, where all gymnasium
appliances are placed and all athletic
sports can be engaged In. At Pen

Oregon City people unite for some
such purpose and give our boys, and
girls an opportunity to spend their
vacation in healthful exercise, ouly go
one better and provide a swimming

the year, as at present there is not
a place within the city limits where
they can come together and have a

I tried to play but where are they to
go? On the street corners? I sup
pose our city council, with the board
of education and ladies' club would be
the proper bodies to take his matter
in charge and I am certain we have
plenty of public spirited men in Ore
gon City who would support anything
along these lines, both financially and
morally, if a proper organiztion were
formed for that purpose.
