GEORGE V BUSINESS-LIKE
Iord Stamford ham Abolishes Man;
Old and Iyucrativ Sinecures.
LONDON". May 8. From being a place
destined to provide easy well-salaried
- posts for the younger sons of the no
bility the royal household of England
has been transformed into an establish
ment run on strictly business-like lines.
Ornamental posts there always will
be around a court, but if there is any
work attached to a Job only the man of
brains and ability gets a chanoe where
the present King of England Is con
cerned. Consequently the British Court
today Is a model of its kind. The most
up-to-date business methods and the
most complete organisation exist every
where, and there la neither any over
lapping as regards Jobs nor any ex
cusefor the "slacker."
Immediately after the King's acres
slon reforms bean to be instituted.
Almost before George was settled on
the throne he sent for Sir Arthur Bigg
(now Lord Stamfordham) and told him
that the secretarial department was to
be overhauled and reformed at once.
The orders were dear and to the point.
"I desire my secretarial department.
said Klr.g George; "to be organized on
much the same lines aa that of any
great business firm or commercial cor

stand in the way.
As it happened. Lord Etamfordham
was not at all loth to undertake this
Job and the sweeplng-out procesa was
started on the spot. Those men wn

LOMBARD IN TALK
Councilman Says He Expected
to Get Membership in
PROOF IN LETTER ISSUED
Automobile Incident Brings Fortn
Further Attack on Candidate
for Mayoralty Olympic
Clnb Card Hit, .
Charges that Gay Lombard as recent
ly as January, 1918, had claimed San
Francisco as his- place of residence
were reiterated last night by George
L. Baker before a well-filled hall in
Sellwood, at East Thirteenth street and
Spokane avenue. Mr. Baker said that
he had been called a prevaricator by
Mr. Lombard, and, while admitting that
he might have slipped from the straight
and narrow path of absolute veracity
at some stages of his career, declared
that this was once at least that there
could be no quibble concerning the
truth of the statement he had made
concerning Mr. Lombard.
1 expected that Mr. Lombard, In
consistence with his entire campaign
of misrepresentation, would call me a
liar," said Mr. Baker, "so I didn't keep
this until the day before election.
was told of Mr. Lombard s San Fran
cisco residence in plenty of time for
him to come back at me with the only
weapon at his command, that of pre
sentlng me with a membership card
to the Ananias Club. I am going to
show you that Mr. Lombard is not only
a member of the Olymplo Club, of San
Francisco, but that he Is well quail
fled for membership to the club to
which I have Just referred.
"I am going to ask you, ladles and
gentlemen, to look In your Oregonlan
tomorrow morning, and see a fac
simile copy of a letter that will prove
that what I have told you about Mr.
Lombard's buying an automobile in San
Francisco is the truth. I said that
the Lombards had claimed residence in
San Francisco, and this letter shows
that the Portland agent of the auto
mobile-that Mr. Lombard bought was
unable to collect his commission on the
sale because Mr. Lombard had claimed
a residence in San Francisco.
Lombard's Attitude Attacked.
"Mr. Lombard must have mlsrepre
sented his place of residence to the
agent of that automobile at San Fran
cisco, for if he had not, that agent
would not have claimed and collected
the commission. The Portland agent of
that automobile told me that he had
tried for over a year to get Mr. Lorn
bard to give him some word showing
that he was a resident of Portland at
the time he bought that car, but had
been unable to get It.
Mr. Baker attacked Mr. Lombard's at
tltude on the commission form of gov
ernment, declaring him as Insincere in
that attitude as in giving his place of
residence when buying an automobile
Mr. Lombard only changed his at
titude on the new charter," said Mr.
Baker, "after he had made up his
mind that the voters were against it.
and because he thought that he would
be boosted Into office by opposing it.
Until he thought he heard a rumble
against It he was for It. He attended
one of the meetings of the committee
that framed It, and he told Mr. W. B.
Ayer, a member of that committee.
that he had spent several days studying
the charter and that he thought It
was all right. Now he tells you that
it is all wrong. He tells you that he
has had lawyers analyze it, and that
they have found it unconstitutional.
Tou know as well as I do that you
can always get a lawyer to find any
thing you want. They said the same
thing about the Initiative and referen-
um and the direct primary, but the
highest court In the land haa held
these things constitutional."
Instances of Service Sought.
D. Soils Cohen addressed the meet
ing, comparing the record of Mayor
Rushlight with that of Mr. Lombard.
He declared that Mr. Rushlight, by bis
economical administration of the funds
f the fire department, has been able
to build three times as many firehouses
as were built by any previous admin
istration. "Neither Mr. Lombard nor his most
ardent supporter has given or can cite
single lnstanoe of publlo service that
e has performed that would warrant
his aspiring to the high office of May
or." said Mr. Cohen.
Mayor Rushlight spoke, giving an
account of his stewardship as Mayor,
and declaring that in submitting com
mission form of government to the
people he had fulfilled his pledge made
two years ago.
Waldemar Seton was the last speak
er. Mr. Seton Is a member of Mayor
Rushlight's Executive Board, and he
gave an account of the workings of
the city government as viewed by one
who had been in Intimate touch with It.

WEDDING SERVICE BLAMED
Suffragettes Ask That Indignities Be
Removed From Ritual.
LONDON, May 3. (Special.) Not
content with burning country houses
and committing others outrages the
English suffragette is now attacking
the marriage service as authorized by
the Episcopal Church.
The Spiritual Militancy League for
the TVomen's Charter of Rights and I ad
Liberties has Issued a manifesto whichjcHi
has been sent to every clergyman of the
Church of England and to all persons
whose forthcoming marriage is an
nounced in the daily papers. This calls
upon all self-respecting men and wo
men In England to help create a pub
lic opinion that will Induce the Govern
ment to constrain by law the authori
ties of the State Church to remove from
the Anglican marriage rite the follow
ing "indignities" both to the spiritual
nature of women and to the actual and
ideal relationship of husband and wife.
"The first indignity is contained in
the words 'obey him and serve him,'
which the bride is required to repeat,
while the bridegroom Is not called upon
to profess any equivalent deference of
subordination. This Indignity can be
removed either by the deletion of the
words 'obey him and serve him,' or by
the Insertion of the words 'obey her
and serve her,' in the corresponding
formula to be said by the bridegroom.
The second indignity is -Involved In
this question put by the minister: "Who
glveth this woman to be married to
this man? while no corresponding
question Is put concerning the man.
This Indignity can be removed either
by omitting the existing question or by
adding to It 'who glveth this man to
be married to this woman?' The pres
ent one-sided 'give-away' is a humil
iating survival of a status for women
which will not become wholly extinct
until the nation no longer allows Its
religious formula to misrepresent and
belie the highest practice and Insight
of our day.
Other "indignities" are said to be aa
'As a symbol of the marriage bond,
a ring is placed upon the finger of the
bride, while none Is placed upon that
of the bridegroom, and in the fact that
the bridegroom alone says the follow
ing words: "With this ring I thee wed,
with my body I thee worship, and with
all my worldly goods I thee endow.
We maintain that the words "with my
body I thee worship' are not only in
language offensive, but in idea un
worthv of what primarily must be a
spiritual sentiment and only second
arily physical. The words 'with all
my worldly goods I thee endow" never
have been true, and have very often
been the very opposite of truth, yet
undoubtedly have been potent in ere
atlnar a false sense of economic de
pendence in the heart of the bride.
"The prayer after the one beseeching
that the two persons shall be rrultrui
In the first place asserts that 'out of
man woman took her beginning. we
protest that this is not only a foolish
and unscientific myth, but one degrad
ing to women and flattering to an al
ready excessive self-esteem on the part
of men. This indignity may be re
moved simply by omission, but if any
thing is to take its place let it be a
statement of biological fact as to the
differentiation of the sexes; for such
scientific fact will In no wise attribute
either vital or moral priority to man
as contrasted with woman.
"The petition is uttered that the man
shall love his wife as Christ the
Church. But it is false to fact and to
the ideal of marriage and demoralizing
both to bride and bridegroom that the
latter should Imagine that he stands
In any such spiritual priority of quick
ening power or authority to his bride
as Christ to the Church. In the pres
ent formula, instead of any such equal
ity, the petition concerning the woman
Is that she mav be 'loving and amiable.
patient and obedient to her husband,
and In all quietness, sobriety and peace.
be a follower of holy and godly mat
rons.' we Insist that as the nusoano
should equally comport himself In all
letness, sobriety, and peace, and be
a follpwer of holy and godly men, he
equally should be told so.
A warning to women, without any
similar warning to men, as to what Is
proper for women In dress and de
portment. Is uttered. But if women as
well as men had been priests when the
Prayer Book was made. It is incon
ceivable that no equivalent warning
hould have been Inserted in the hom
ily as to vices peculiar to men."
One male commentator somewhat
brutally suggests that as no one now
ever reads the marriage service the
manifesto is much ado about nothing.
A more advanced male supporter of
the suffragette cause Is endeavoring to
form a "Guild of Honor," which has as
Its openly avowed object that "all wo
men interested in the movement should
refuse to bear any children (or any
more children, as the case may be) un
til their demands are conceded. "Per
haps such an action." says this cham
pion of woman's wrongs, "would bring
the pecple of England to their senses."
Meantime the percentage of mar
riages is rapidly declining In Kngland
and women are toeing treatea witn less
nd less respect. Some women are
brave enough to say that for these two
eflclencles the country has to thank
the "outraglst" suffragette.

PAST FIFTY? YOU
What Glasses Are to Weak Eyes
Cas carets Are to Weak
Most old people must give, to the
bowels some regular help, v else they
suffer from constipation. The condi
tion Is perfectly naturaL It is . Just
as natural as it Is for old people -to
walk slowly. For age Is never so ac
tive as youth. The muscles are less
elastic. And the bowels are muscles.
So all old people need Cascarets.
One mlKht as well refuse to aid weak
eyes with glasses as to neerleot this
gentle aid to weak bowels. The bowels
must be kept active. This is impor
tant at all ages, but never so much as
Age is not a time for harsh physics.
Touth may occasionally whip the
bowels into activity. But a lash can't
be used every day. What the bowels
of the old need Is a gentle and nat
ural tonic One that can be constant
ly used without harm. The only such
tonio Is Cascarets and they cost only
10 cents per box at any drug itora.
They work while you sleep.
