BCTTNG OF WHEAT 13 RESTRICTED
Lack of Order. From Orient and Knrope
Th. wheat market was slow, owing to
th. absence of Inquiry from the Orient for
Dour or from Europe for wheat. Unless or
ders materialise soon dealers look for a
lower range of grain prices. Club was
quoted yesterday at 7S679 cents and blue
stem at 8S89 cents. Farmers are not sel
lers to any great extent at the price, now
offered. What little buying Is being done
by millers and speculators, however. Is at
full prices. Distant markets took on a
steadier tone, which encourage, holders to
believe that prices may com. back

magazine F. D. Wagner, editor of the
Ashland Record, writing under the nom

GOVERNMENT IS TAUGHT
CITY CHARTER TEXTBOOK AT
Idea of Course Is to Familiarize
Children in Practical AYay or
When the 32 boy3 and girls of the
Ninth a class at tne juontavuia bciiooi
graduate in February they probably
win v, a ra a Trttv fair knowledge of
how their city Is governed. With the
approval of L. K. Alderman, superin
tendent of City Schools, the principal,
L. A. Wiley, has Instituted a course In
city government, with the Portland
Commission Charter as the textbook.
"It is surprising," said Mr. Wiley,
"how little the majority of citizens
know aftout the government of their
city. Too many of us have an idea that
the city's business is everybody's busi
ness but our own, except when It comes
to criticising. When we wish to have a
street paved we don't even know what
official to see.
"The idea of the course simply Is to
familiarize the children" in a practical
way with the form of government, the
duties of the Commissioners and other
officials and the procedure followed In
putting through public Improvements.
They will be taught; for example, to
know the different kinds of pavement,
what each kind should cost, the width
of sidewalks and their constituents,
how assessments for such improve
ments are made and other business of
One boy in the class was assigned
as his lesson to report on the bond the
Mayor must furnish before he qualifies
for office, the purpose of the bond and
the procedure necessary to obtaining
it. He became so Interested that after
seeing the Mayor he went to each Com
missioner, to City Auditor Barbur, and
to City Treasurer Adams, and came In
with a complete report on their bonds
