An excellent understanding of the
ideas and Ideals of Very Reverend Wal
ter T. Sumner, elected early yesterday
morning- to succeed the late Right Rev
erend Charles Scadding as bishoj of
the Episcopal diocese of Oregon, may
he had from an address on "Social
Kervice Through the Church," deliv
ered by Rev. Mr. Sumner less than a
year ago before the Twenty-eighth an
nual convention of the St. Andrew's
Cross in New York City.
In his exposition of the subject to
which he has directed so "much Btudy
and so much effort in Chicago. Bishop
elect Sumner dwells upon the impor
tance of good citizenship and upon the
four possible avenues of social service,
a service he defines as "the study of
character under adversity and the at
tempt to remove that adversity."
"All Must Live at Best."
"Keen competition compels every
man. today to live at his best," says
Bishop-elect Sumner. "That which
takes from him the powers to meet the
demands that labor and society puts
upon him is the thing to shun.
"We may give addresses. publish
tracts, preach sermons upon Intemper
ance, upon lust, upon vice, upon vicious
practices, but none will be so far
reaching as that which will convince
the Intelligent person that these are not
the only things for which he must an
swer at the great bar of justice, but they
are also things which are taking away
his power to live at his best today.
"The only thing which commands re
spect in business and professional life
is efficiency, next to honesty; and the
laws of efficiency hang upon a man's
output, either in quantity or quality,
or both. Plainly It is the part of wis
dom to have man so conserve his en
ergy, to develop his genius, that his
output shall not be inferior in quality
or smaller in quantity than that of his
competitor. As it Is in business, I take
it, so it Is in citizenship.
Citizenship Keanlsltes Three.
"There are three requisites of cltl
Benship, in my judgment. The first is
knowledge. In these days of the en
lightened press, of wide magazine read
ing, there is absolutely no excuse for
Ignorance on the part of citizens.
"Now every man is securing from
his community, if not a fortune, at
least a living wage or a living salary.
Each person owes something to his
community in return for that com
munity's support. Among other things
he owes his loyalty. No city ever
reached her pinnacle of power and
beauty unless she was believed in by
her sons and. daughters.
"A third requisite is necessary. That
citizen who is gifted, who Is beyond,
perhaps, the point where he has to
think of the necessities of life, who
has been blessed with education, who
hail ample opportunity for full knowl
edge and yet is bo indifferent tnat he
will not contribute his share to the so
lution of these problems, or so indif
ferent that he will not stand for office
or take- an interest in civic adminis
tration or of public affairs or so indif
ferent that he will not even cast his
ballot. Is not only indifferent, but an
undesirable citizen, taking community
support and giving back nothing in
community interest.
Social Service Defined.
"If in efficient citizenship we meas
ure our efficiency In action, what do
we call that action? It is sometimes
called social service. We sometimes
Bay that social service is caring for
the poor, the sick, the Infirm or aged.
The definition I want to give is, I think.
Inclusive and conclusive. It is this,
'the study of character under adver
sity and the attempt to remove that
"In the Btudy of character under ad
versity and the attempt to remove that
adversity there opens up for us four
avenues at least. The first is along
the lines of civic welfare.
"We shall never make any great ad
vance along the avenues of justice, of
honest and efficient administration of
our affairs at the primaries or polls
until first we escape, until we are re
moved from those conditions where the
best men are not selected for office.
YVorlc Inpr Women Considered.
"One department of effort must be
along the lines of the laboring man.
But the laboring woman! Primarily
the sphere of woman is the home.
There is no higher calling than the call
of motherhood, but what are we going
to do with the 10,000,000 today in this
country In Industry who have no
"She Is our problem; a condition
unique in the history of the world.
There are now almost twice as many
as ten years before In the Industrial
ranks, an oversupply of untrained, un
skilled women workers, competing un
Justly with men and machinery.
"And we must not forget the child.
The prosperity of this country does
not demand 2,500,000 children in In
dustrial life today, and I challenge
anyone to name one article to manu
facture which the skill of a child is
necessary. The only reason children
ore employed is the greed and avarice
of men who will exploit child labor
for the small wage, therebydoing in
justice to the child of future genera
tions and to the laborer.
Single Standard Vrncd.
"Again we have an opportunity to
break down the double standard.
refer to that standard which has never
been demanded by womanhood, and
men have been so ungracious and un
christian as never to grant to woman
hood the single standard of morality,
sex morality for man and woman alike.
And we can never hope to reach even
the fringe of this great social evil
problem until we can approach it from
this standpoint.
"We sometimes Bay that this Is
necessary evil. Very well. To whom
Is it necessary? Is it necessary to
manhood? Ask any physician or physi
ologist. What a reflection upon your
son, upon every unmarried man In the
community, what an Insult to the
celibate clergy of the church. Abso
lutely and unequivocally it is not
, necessary.
Liquor Traffic Denounced.
"One great menace which is not pop
ular nowadays in public discussions,
the greatest contributing force to
these conditions of which I speak, is
the organized liquor interest. There is
no more damnable influence in the
community today than the organized
liquor traffic, breaking down the in
tegrity of the home, the Integrity of
the Nation and the integrity of the
Government itself.
"And while some may differ as to
the great advance which may come
with the franchise of election to wom-
n, because some day it will be theirs.
of this I am absolutely certain, that
when the franchise is theirs you will
find standing shoulder to shoulder
those who have suffered the -greatest
Injustice and misery and wretchedness
because of the liquor traffic, women
native born and alien, rich and poor,
Ignorant and educated, and . voting
practically as a unit for the suppres
sion of the liquor traffic. .
Social service gives- ample - oppor
tunity for the individual and for the
groups of organized individuals in
ivic. In -social -and in moral - uplift.
What a fine thing It Is for a man or
a woman to choose for their life voca
tion a profession or vocation where so
cial service is their constant work.
And yet the church languishes because
we have not the men."
Dean Sumner Snprised by Xevfs He
Is Elected Oregon Bishop.
CHICAGO, Sept. 17. His election to
the Episcopal bishopric of Oregon
came as a surprise to Dean Walter T.
Sumner, when the news was given him
by a newspaper man here today.
Dean Sumner recently declined calls
to Cleveland and to the pastorate of
the wealthy North Side Parish of St.
James, on the grounds that he had
work in his present field to occupy him
everal years.
"The Oregon call," he said, "Is Impor
tant, and I cannot announce' my deci
sion until I have given the subject
careful consideration.
Dean Sumner is one of the most
popular ecclesiastics in Chicago, and
for years has been in the van of the

Dean Sumner Delays Reply.
Dr. A. A. Morrison, of Trinity Church,
yesterday received a telegram from
Bishop-elect Sumner in response to the
notification of his election by the dio
cese of Oregon in which he stated that
he would withhold . his acceptance or
declination until receipt of the official
letter formally announcing his elec
tion. If Rev. Mr. Sumner, who- Is not yet
40 years old, accepts the election he
will be the youngest bishop the Episco
pal Church has ever hadjn Oregon. The
remuneration is $3000 a, year salary.

Mr. . Armstrong . Citea Statute Which
Permits Penalizing; of Parents.
Those Under 15 Amenable.
"According to the laws of the state.
attendance at school Is a matter of
'must' with nearly all pupils," said
County Superintendent of Schools Arm
strong yesterday. "The law author
izes the appointment of a truant off!
cer, the infliction of fines on parents
who fall to comply with its provision,
and the like.
"However, a truant officer Is not
needed in rural schools, in my opinion.
I gave this work my personal atten
tion last year, and will see to it again
this year."
Mr. Armstrong said that his atti
tude toward a pupil who does not at
tend school from choice is one of
persuasion rather than compulsion,
and that he finds it operates splen
didly. The compulsory education law reads
as follows:
As soon as school opens the District Clerk
must give to the teacher & copy of his last
census report, showing the name and age
of every child and the name and address of
father or guardian. Every child between
and Including the ages of 9 and IS years
must attend school regularly during the
whole time the school Is in session.
The Attorney-General has ruled that this
luncludes children when they become and
until they reach IB. Teachers are author
ized to require excuses from parents, either
in person i r by written note, in all cases
of absence or tardiness. No excuse shall
be accepted except sickness of the pupil or
of some member of the pupil's family,
which makes attendance impossible.
The compulsory law does not apply to
eighth-grade graduates or to children who
are attending some other school regularly,
or to children between fl and 10 years of age
if they live more than one and one-half
miles f rem scbool; nor to older children If
they live more thsn three miles from school
by the nearest traveled road.
Washington Canvass September 29.
OLTMFIA, Wash., Sept. 17 The offi

Plans and working drawings for the
proposed Catholic Church, parish school
and archbishop's residence to be erected
on the church property, bounded by
Seventeenth, Eighteenth, Couch and

actual work of constructing the parish

be completed probably about next Feb
ruary, according to a prediction made
yesterday by one of the architects.
$250,000 Investment Planned.
The probable cost of the parish school
has' not 'yet been announced, but
Father E. V. O'Hara said yesterday that
the group of 'three buildings would
cost In the neighborhood of $250,000.
After the parish school is finished the
church, which by far will be the most ex
pensive of three buildings, will De duiii
and lastly the archbishop's residence.
It will perhaps take years to complete
the entire project.
The parish school is to be built on
the Seventeenth-street side of the prop
erty facing Couch street, and providing
an entrance from both streets. The
church is to be placed on the Eighteenth-street
side facing south, while It
is proposed to erect the residence on
the side facing Davis street.
When the church block was pur
chased a few months ago officials of
the church contemplated construction
of a great cathedral covering the en
tire premises, but they have concluded
that the three-unit plan would be more
feasible and satisfactory.
Italian Lines to Prevail.
An Italian renaissance architecture
will prevail in the construction of all
three buildings. The exteriors will be of
a rough surface, dark red brick, with
terra cotta trimming and tile roofs.
The parish school will extend two
stories above a grade iloor. The lower
floor Is to house the manual training
and domestic science departments, an
auditorium and a social-room for wom
en. Five classrooms, a library and
offices will be on the middle floor,
while the top floor will contain a large
social hall for the church, anterooms
and a society meeting-room.
A cloister will be located between
the school and church, with a garden
courtyard to be used as a playground
for the children.
The general plans have been approved
by the church officers.
The site for the group of Catholic
buildings was purchased last May from
S. Benson for $160,000.
The location Is two blocks west of
the St. Mary's Cathedral and six blocks
southeast of the 12 lots at Twentieth,
Uiisan and Hoyt streets sold by Arch
bishop Christie earlier In the year to
the School Board for 1142,000. The
new Couch School, about to be started
will be placed on the former church

held in service until January 1.
A mooting of officers of the corpora

steps toward organizing for 1915. Un
