the Catholic belief, but this in Itself is the
highest guarantee of our loyalty and pat
riotism. "We love our faith as we love our
country and we follow our flag as we fol
low our church, even unto death. We are
proud of the Stars and Stripes. We glory
in the banner of the cross. There is noth
ing in either that excites controversy nor
should the one be set up against the
other."
COST TO STATE IS CUT DOWN
Insane Patients Taken to Salem by
Asylum Attendants.
SALEM, Or., June 5. (Special.) A sav
ing of over 235 per cent in the cost of
transporting insane patients Is shown by
the first report of Superintendent Cal
breath concerning the expenditures for
bringing patients to the asylum under the
new law. In some instances, the cost is
only jne-thlrd what it was under the old
system, and It varies from that to a lit
tle more, than two-thirds the former cost.
After making allowances for the sala
ries of extra attendants. made necessary
by sending attendants after the patients,
the average cost of transportation will
be about two-thirds what It was under
the old system of having the Sheriffs
bring the patients to Salem. In other
respects the law has worked well thus
far, and no complaint has been made
concerning the care the patients have
received.
The greatest saving will be made la
transporting patients from western Ore
gon counties, from which most of the
patients come. Under the old system,
the average cost bf bringing a patient
from Portland was J20. Under the new
system it Is from ST to $10. The cost of
transporting a patient from Marion Coun
ty has been reduced from K to 51. From
Clatsop County it has been reduced from
JCfO to $14.75. From Baker Counts it
has been reduced from JS1 to 5S5.
The new law has been in force but a
fraction of a month, however, and actual
results -cannot be had until an average
can be computed upon the cost of trans
porting a large. number of patients under
the new system.

administered Justice in this court for so many
years and endeared hlmretf to the bar of the

Blue Laws to Bo Enforced.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 5 (Special.)
when F. A. Cbertngton comes from Ohio
to succeed Dr. J. C. Thorns as superin
tendent of the Antl-baioon League a vig
orous campaign will be started to compel
all saloons to close on Sunday. The fight
iias already been started in a number of
the smaller cities and will be carried on
generally throughout the state under the
new organization.
Thorns has for years been the Anti
Saloon League's superintendent, but has
been deposed. He is' a familiar figure to
politicians and legislative workers, for
moms- principal activity has been at
Olympla.
A rigid enforcement of all "blue" laws
is the programme of the league now, the
argument being made that the Legislature
always meets them when new legislation
is sought with the declaration that they
do nothing toward enforcing existing
statutes.

FIGHTS TO TIE Ei
Salem Minister Against Pay
ment to Refuge Home.
PROTESTS TO SECRETARY
Oregon Attorney-General Has De
cided the Institution Is Xot a
Religious One "Within Mean
ing of the Law.
SALEM, Or., June 5. (Special.) Rev.
W. IL Selleck, pastor of the First Meth
odist Episcopal Church, of this city,
has protested to the Secretary of State
against tne payment of money to tho
Refuge 'Home, of Portland, under the
provision of the Malarkey act appropriating-
money for the aid of institu
tions engaged In reclaiming wayward
girls. His protest was based upon the
ground that the Refuge Home Is a
Catholic institution, and is the only
institution that comes within the pro
visions of the act, and that the appro
priation is a contravention of that sec
tion of the constitution which says
that "no money shall be drawn from
tho treasury for the benefit of any
religious or theological Institution, nor
shall any money be appropriated for
tho payment of any religious services
in either house of the Legislative As
sembly. The protest has been referred to the
Attorney-General, and an .opinion has
been rendered by that official holding
that the act is not in violation of tho
constitutional provision, that the appro
priation is for the benefit of the wayward
girls, and not for the institution.
The Malarkey act, passed by the last
Legislature, appropriates not to exceed
17000 a year to be paid at the rate of
S4 a year for each wayward girl be-.
tween the ages of 12 and IS yearj
maintained at an Institution conducted
for that purpose. In order that the pro
visions of tne act may not be abused
by persons organizing such Institutions
for the purpose of securing tno ap
propriation, the act provides that no
.Institution shall be entitled to receive
payment from tho appropriation un
less It has been in existence one year
and has not less than five Inmates. The
money is to be paid out-only after the
County Judge has certified to the cor
rectness of a claim verified by the
managers of the institution, and the
Governor. Secretary of State and State
Treasurer may require additional evi
dence If they think It advisable. -
When this act was up for considera
tion in the Legislature. Mr. Sclledc
fought it on the ground that only one
Institution would come within its pro
visions. This objection was met with
the statement that the limitations are
reasonable and that any other institu
tion may secure the appropriation by
coming within the limitations. The
act was passed by a large majority.
After reviewing the provisions of the
law and of the constitution above men
tloued. Attorney-General Crawford
holds that the Refuge Home Is not a
religious Institution within the mean
ing of the constitutional prohibition.
but is a reformatory institution.
PLOW OF THE WILLAMETTE
GAUGING STATIONS WILL BE ES
TABLISHED ON STREAM.
Tributaries Will Also Be 3Icn&ured
Under Direction of State
Engineer Lewis.
SALEM, Or., June 5. Special. State
Engineer John H. Lewis left this evening
for the southern ond of the Willamette
Valley on a tour of Inspection of Valley
streams. His purpose is to find conve
nient places for gauging stations on the
Willamette and Its tributaries. Each
gauging station will be supplied with a
gauge for measuring the depth of the
water at different stages, and a meter
for measuring the rapidity of the current.
The measurements will be taken once a
day throughout the year.
The object is to secure accurate infor
mation showing the quality of water
flowing in each stream,' so that persons
who may be interested In manufacturing
enterprises will know where water pow
ers are available. Since the people of
the different sections of the Valley are
interested in the development ot manu
facturing resources, Mr. Lewis expects to
be able to find some one on each stream
who will take the dally observations with
out charging the state anything for his
services. A man residing or working on
the bank of a stream can take the ob
servations In a few minutes each day.
Probably only one gauging station will
be located on the Willamette between Eu
gene and Oregon City, and that one for
the purpose of ascertaining the quantity
of water flowing over the falls at the lat
ter place. Throughout most of Its course
the Willamette cannot be used for poorer
purposes, and for that reason the gaug
ing stations will be established principally
on tributary streams.
Mr. Lewis desires to locate a station on
the Willamette at Salem, where he can
give it his personal attention, but it will
be difficult to take measurements from
the steel bridge, because of an eddy near
the west bank. He may find It imprac
ticable to establish a gauging station
here.
A water filing was made in the State
Engineer's office today by H. M. Tinker,
J. L. Rogers, C. W. Thomas and R. T.
Motley, who will take 15 Inches of water
from Looking Glass Creek, and 1000 Inches
from Swamp Creek, in Northern Union
County, and convey It in ditches Into
Umatilla County, where they will use It
for Irrigating purposes. By going around
mountain sides, the canals will carry the
water over the divide from one stream
system to another.

one evening, while visiting a young wom
an who lived across the way from the

FRICTION IS MARKED
Customs and Immigration Men
at Outs at Seattle.
DIVORCED BY CONGRESS
Commissioner Sergeant Is Said to
HavcxProvided. Good Berths for
Old Friends Who .Were
Locomotive' Firemen.
SEATTLE. Wash.. June 5. (Special.)
Friction between the customs and immi
gration departments, shown in this col
lection district, has grown out of the
action of Congress in divorcing, the two.
When Collector ot Customs C W. Ide had
charge of the immigration work he em
ployed but three Inspectors. According to
the figures of a customs official there are
now nearly 100 Immigration officers in this
district. Some of the best customs offi
cials have been transferred to the new
department without the sanction of the
Collector of Customs and he Is resenting
the Interference in his department.
The collection of a S3 head tax on all
immigrants, paid by the vessels to tha
Collector of Customs and forwarded to
the Treasury Department, provides the
fund for the Immigration officials. Last
year J1.SOO.000 was collected and It Is from
this fund that the Immigration force has
been built up so rapidly.
When Commissioner Sergeant, ot the
immigration force, returns from Honolulu
It is likely a protest will be made to him
regarding the conditions In this district.
The story is out here that an unusually
large number of locomotive firemen have
found berths In the Immigration service
as a result of Sergeant's partiality toward
the men with whom he formerly worked
He was at the head of the firemen's or
ganisation when appointed Commissioner
of Immigration.

Doctors have been loathe to indorse
a catarrh remedy because catarrh and
catarrhal diseases have puzzled the
medical fraternity for many decades.
More prominent physicians use and
Indorse Peruna each year.
Dr. A. Morgan, 314 Gater street, In
dianapolis. Ind., writes:
"Regular physicians do not, aa a
rale, lad erne patent medicines. I have,
however, found la my practice that Pe
nai la a notable exception and aot at
all like aay other medicine geaerally
eld a 'pateHt medicine.
"In examining it I find that it Is a
scientifically prepared medicine, com
posed of herbal remedies of high medi
cinal value.
"It Is a specific for catarrh of the
head, lungs or stomach, a fine remedy
for female troubles, and Invaluable to
mothers and children.
"After fevers or other protracted Ill
ness, It Is one of the best tonics I know
of to restore the system to normal con
dition and I recommend it to convales
cents. Tt Is a high class family remedy,
good for young and old." A. Morgan.
Peruna occupies a unique position in
medlcnl. science. It is the only Inter
nal systemic catarrh remedy known to
the medical profession today.
Catarrh is a systemic disease cura
ble only by systemic treatment. A rem
edy that cures catarrh must aim direct
ly at the depressed nerve centers. This
is what Peruna does. .
Peruna Contains No Narcotic.

permanent use in so many homes is
that it contains no narcotics of any
kind. Peruna is perfectly harmless.
It can be used any length of time
without acquiring a drug habit. Peru
na does not produce temporary results.
It is permanent in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by
removing the cause of catarrh. There
are a multitude of homes where Peru
na has been used off and on far 20
years. Such a thing could not be pos
sible If Peruna contained any drugs of
a narcotic nature.
