Past the $1000 mark went the Fresh

the Associated Charities had expected it
to reach that sum and only a little more
than a week since the beginning of the
Fresh air campaign. It is believed that

Appeal Made for Mothers
Secretary Manning will make an ef
fort to meet the demand for places for
mothers to enjoy a Summer vacation,
by arranging to rent a cottage at the
seashhora for them. In this way about
40 mothers and their chclldren can be
cared for. In the meantime, an appeal
is made to people living in the country
who will be willing to receive and en

a few days.
- The Associated Charities will pay the
transportation and will take care of
the rent on the women's -Jjomes while
they are away and will outfit tbera

Among those for whom no place has
been secured is a little woman with
three boys, the eldest 13 years old. Al

Mrs. John Wolford, chairman of the
Sllverton committee, who visited the
Associated Charities yesterday, related
a touching incident of the affection dis
played between one of the poor moth

them to their hosts in Sllverton the
mother and baby were sent to one
house and the two other children were
placed on a farm four miles distant.
Early yesterday morning, carrying her
baby, the mother trudged over to see
how her little ones were getting along.
Eager to see their mother, likewise, the
two children started out to meet her
and the four held a fomily reunion on

'elected to the position in the de
partment of education In Pitts
burg University made vacant by
Dr. H. D. Sheldon, recently called
to the University of Oregon as
dean of the oepartment of educa

In 1910 he went to Oxford. Three
years were spent in England and
In traveling on the Continent.
On his return Mr. Lyans entered

Alleged Cat Tormentor Hold.
Charged with setting a bulldog on a
cat, Roy Hill, a laborer. 24 years old,
was arrested at Williams avenue and

Officer Pitts. A. E. Neate, ISIS Union

killed several cats and puppies. Hill
was released on $10 bail.
Janitor, from the clty; service. The
Council yesterday upheld Mr. Brewster
in- his plan to appeal the case to the
State Supreme Court. Commissioner
Bigelow alone opposed the plan.
Commissioner Brewster first started
after the aged Janitor and Grand Army
veteran early last Fall, when he dis
missed him from the service because
of old age and alleged inability to prop
erly perform his work. The Municipal
Civil Service Board overruled Brew
ster and he took the case into the
Circuit Court, where Judge Morrow up
held the Board. Announcing that he
still believed he was right, Mr. Brew
ster asked for the appeal to the court
of last resort.
Mayor Promises Job.
It is contended by Mayor Albee and
others that the appeal is being author
ized to test out the question of civil
service Jurisdiction and not to get
rid of Mr. Chamberlain, although It
Is admitted that the veteran Janitor's
Job is at stake in the case.
Mayor Albee announced publicly yes
terday that he will guarantee a posi
tion for Mr. Chamberlain if he loses
out in the case. Mr. Albee said it was
on this consideration that he supported
the plan for appeal.
City employes feel that the ques
tion at stake in the Chamberlain case
is one affecting the heart and soul of
civil service in Portland. The Coun
cil's contention is that the extent of the
Board's Jurisdiction is to pasi upon the
question of whether the dismissal of
an employe was maJe "in good faith
for the good pf the service." It is con
tended that the Board has no right to
consider anything but the element of
good faith or whether the dismissal
was for "political or religious reasons."
Board Insists on Stand.
The Civil Service Board, on the other
hand, contends that it has the right
to consider the merit of other specific
charges against employes. If a man
is charged with insubordination or
embezzlement, the Board members say
they have a right to hear evidence and
pass upon the merit of those charges.
This has always been the practice in
the past an-It has never been dis
puted, excepting in the Chamberlain
case. He was charged with inability
to perform his work. The Board in
vestigated this question.
With their rights confined to prov
ing that the Commissioner making a
dismissal did not act in good faith or
acted for political or religious reasons,
employes say there might as well be
no civil service.
City Attorney LaRoche considers the
decision of Judge Morrow erroneous.
Attorney Flghta Appeal,
"Things were read Into the civil serv
ice provisions which do not exist," said
Mr. LaRoche. "There is a matter of
principle involved. It would pay the
city to pension Mr. Chamberlain for
life and then go ahead with this case
on the basis of the principle involved.
The decision of Judge Morrow is a
perversion of the best -Ideas In civil
Roger Sinnott, attorney for Mr.
Chamberlain, protested against the ap
peal. "Mr. Brewster has Deen beaten
and should quit," he said. "Why should
the city spend $300 or $400 ana re-1
quire Mr. Chamberlain to spend more
money in fightingan inslgnifcant case
like this in the Supreme Court? I
