CHAMBERLAIN AKD THE
The news from Salem is that the
last remaining dollar of the school
fund has been loaned, and that more
than four millions of it is now at
interest. Four years ago more than
$700,000 of this fund was in the
State treasurer's hands, yielding no
interest to the school children, the
interest on the sum, if any there
was, going into the pockets of the
treasurer. It was then that Gov
ernor Chamberlain began an agita
tion of the subject, promising the
people in his campaign addresses
that if elected governor, he would
see that this money should be
loaned in the name of the state,
and the proceeds be set aside for
the public school children. Gov
ernor Chamberlain was elected, and
the dispatches from Salem show
how well he has kept his promise.
The unswerving fidelity with which
he stands in every crisis and' on
every occasion for the interests of
those who placed him in high ,po
sition is what makes the executive
office an honor to Governor Chamb
erlain, and Soverner Chamberlain
an honor to the executive office.
What he has done in this one act
for the schools and school children
of the state is alone sufficient to win
for him the applause and esteem of
every citizen oi the commonwealth
AS TO STORKS.
Dearth of births in that city is a
source of public concern in Port
land, although it is doubtless the
averaee wife's opinion that the
subject is none of the public's busi
ness. Since it is she on whom the
cares and labors fall, the question
of whether an ordinary wife shall
have no children or a dozen of them
is one that is .mainly her own busi
ness and no business whatever ot
the town politician, the city magis
trate or some other wife's husband.
If in her younger days, Mother Thaw
had become mother to one son less
there would be 'fewer tears on her
pillow, and less of sorrow to bend
her frame now. Murderer Barnes

just sentenced to hang, is one of

Other than wives, want more. If
Esther Mitchell's mother were alive
what reason would she have to be
thankful for . motherhood of a
daughter whose hands are red with
a brother's blood. There are mil
lions of wives wholly unfitted for
maternity, and millions .more too
poor financially to rear a family of
children, and to order these to bear
children, whether it be done by Mr.
Roosevelt or by Portland theorists,
is untimely and flatulent folly.
A happy family where children
are welcome is the ideal and the
noblest ordinance of life; but God
help the mother, help the father,
and help the children in a family
where children are unwelcome or
unloved. How many times or
whether or not a wife shall be a
mother is none of the public's busi
ness, and only concerns her to
whom, according to her taste, chil
dren are a joy, or a burden.
A HERO'S REWARD.
Man's inhumanity to man is
vividly illustrated in the sentence
of death meted out to General
Stoessel, the biave defender of Port
Arthur against the irresistible Jap
anese in the Russo-Japanese war.
After more than a year of indomit
able resistance in which his force
had been decimated and shattered
by ceaseless bombardment, Stoessel
finally surrendered the forlorn rem-nant-of
his troops, and it is for this
surrender that an ignoble death is
to be his portion. It was . impos
sible for the brave Russian to have
won in that memorable struggle,
and the fact that his defense was so
heroic and its final issue so unex
pectedly and so effectively post
poned should have elicited, not a
death sentence but the commenda
tion of his countrymen, and his
monarch. With such a fate for
those who defend her how could
melancholy and misguided Russia
be otherwise than an unhappy and a

CITIZENS DON'T HELP.
With Fire Apparatus A Com
plaint Saturday's Blaze
The residence of C. D. Abbott,
located in the block northeast of
the court house was the scene of a
small fire Saturday afternoon. An
alarm brought the fire department
in fairly quick time, altheugh one
cart was pulled to the scene by not
more than half a dozen men while
the other was taken there by but
five men.. The origin of the fire
was a defective flue and the flames
were in the roof between the shingles
and the ceiling, making them diffi
cult of access. A stream from the
new water system, after it got into
motion soon began to tell and when
a second stream was added the fire
was quickly smothered.. The pres
sure of(the stream applied on the in
side of the building was such as to
rip shingles from the roof with ease.
The damage by fire and water to
the building is $150 or $200 fully
covfered" by insurance. The incid
ent is particularly noteworthy in
that it shows an utter lack of in
terest by citizens in getting fire ap
paratus to and from fires. The
hose from one of the carts laid at
the scene of the fire until yesterday
evening, more than 50 hours after
it had been used. Instead of going
to the fire, citizens, at least proper
ty owners, whether firemen or not,
ought to help get the fire apparatus
to the burning building, and help
house and put in order again after
the fire is over.

TALE OF BOOTLEGGING
By the Sounding Sea How
they Smoke the Crayther
out at Newport,
This is a hearsay item, and can
not be sworn to in a court of jus
tice, but there is no doubt of its
truth. They told it freely on the
excursion train coming out from
Newport Sunday evening. It re
fers to drouth conditions in New
port, and of the method they have
in some instances over there of
evading the law. A man entered
a well known place there Sunday
and being hungry, he called for an
oyster cocktail. As the world
knows an oyster cocktail is a pre
paration of oysters and condiments
with never a drop of the Crayther
in it. It was such a preparation
that the customer wanted, and that
is what he would have gotten but
for the fact that the man behind
the counter sidetracked him.
After eyeing the customer keenly
a second, and apparently with some
satisfaction, the proprietor said:
"Do you want a good cocktail?"
"Yes; ruu me off the warmest thing
you've got on the reel," replied the
guest. "All right, then," said the
enterprising Newporter, and taking
up a glass he put in" the bottom of
it, one, oyster. A bottle on a shelf
was labeled. "Worcestershire
sauce," and it looked like its
brand might correctly denote its
contents, but it didn'l. It .was
shaken over the glass a few times,
and then another bottle labeled,
"Ripe Tomato Catsup" was used.
From its contents the glass was
filled well up toward the brim, and
then the mixture was shoved out to
the customer. He swallowed it
and smacked his lips while such a
grin as could only come to a man
from a dry town lighted up his
physiognomy. "Gosh; I'll take an
other." he said, as he heaved a
half a dollar to the leeward of the
empty glass and rubbed his hands
together abaft his lee scuppers,
And what he got was not a mix
ture of oyster and sauces, but good
old carantular juice of the most
popular Newport brand. "Most of
the boys, got onto the place, and
they had alllhey wanted before we
left town," was the remark with
which a well known and truthful
young man concluded his narrative
of bootlegging in the seaside city.
CUT HIS HEAD OFF.
Thats What will Happen to
Janitor Wells Others Want
It is known to be a fact that
County Judge Woodward is be
sieged by Corvallis politicians to
squeeze John Wells out of the jan
itorship at the court house. There
is a large list of applicants for the
job, and most of them expect the
place as a reward for the service
rendered Judge Woodward in the
late campaign. The judge cannot
reward them all. There is no
doubt but what She loves them, but
he hasn't enough janitorships to go
around. He is in a position that
he would like mighty well to bw
out of, for in naming one of the
candidates, he must turn all the
others down. Four years ago
when the court went democratic,
the republican janitor, W. G. Lane
was continued in office until he re
signed about a year later to run for
chief of police, but it is said that
precedent won't stand now, and
that Janitor Wells' political head
has got to roll into the waste basket
with a dull sickening thud next
At last account, there were eight
applications on file, and it was said
to be a fact that in addition to those
filed, there were other candidates.
The salary of the position is $50
per month and the duties include
the janitor work in the court house
and jail, the care of the heating
plant and the management of the
court house park.
