Mr. 01ctt Asks Delay.
Secretary of State Olcott. who voted
originally for the retention of Colonel
Lawson, said he had confidence in the
official and asked that final determina

thought the superintendent's motives
had been misconstrued, itr. Olcott cia
not vote on the proposal to remove
I'nlnnel Lawson at once.
Governor Withycotnbe said, so far as
be was concerned, it was a ciosea in
i-id.nt and that he cared for no fur

In response to a query by State Treas

superintendent several days ago had
made a quibbling statement to mm.

the appointment of the parole officer,
I agree with the Governor," said State
Treasurer Kay. "This board has shown
Colonel Lawson every consideration.
He agreed before the board to make
Ir. Keller parole officer and if he
fiad not desired to do so he should
have consulted with the board Instead
of rushing Into the newspapers.

"He said the parole officer was not
needed, but he had one during nis
administration in the person of Frank
Snodirrass. There is no reason wny
Mr. Keller cannot serve in that ca

Governor Discovers Motives.
The discontinuance of Colonel Law

desirable at this time because of his
action in the Keller matter, although
iha Issue la larger than a minor ap
ointment. Colonel Lawson agreed to
fake certain action quite definitely.
The agreement was made with me and

"Later, without any notification to me
or other members, he saw fit to change

change I do not know nor do I care.
On my own initiative I had arranged
to keep him a month longer than he
asked out of courtesy. The prompt
evidence of Colonel Lawson's intention
to attempt embarrassing tactics con

leaky water fixtures have been found

Comparatively few of those who have

The long and short of vaudeville is

in on the ground floor. The Marco
twins are fun-makers with original
methods, and their widely dissimilar
styles of architecture provide most of
the hilarity. The tall one dresses in
an Eva Tanguay effect. He is a clever
contortionist and his role in the plot
is to wipe up the stage with little
brother Marco. The diminutive one al

SANTA CLAUS GIRL WON
Lady Bountiful to Poor Children An
nounces Her Engagement.
PHILADELPHIA. March 1. Olive
May Wilson, the "Santa Claus Girl,
of Jenkintown. whose gifts have
taught thousands of poor children the
country over the meaning of "Merry
Christmas," surprised her friends a few
davs aaro by formally announcing her
engagement to Blrchall Hammer, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas B. Hammer, of
Mount Airy, Pa. No definite date has
been set for the wedding.
Miss Wilson, who lives with her par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. S, Harry Wilson, at
01 West avenue, Jenkintown, said
that she would not let her coming
marriage interfere with her work. She
will still play Lady Bountiful to the
little hoys and birls whose stockings
she fills with candies and toys, and
whose hearts overflow with grateful
love for their "Dear Santa Lady." The
only difference will be that there will
now be a Mr. Santa Claus to help her.
The ""Happy Princess of Jenkintown'
has won a national reputation for her
self by her tireless and successful
work, striving to bring a little Christ
mas joy into the homes of the slums
and the poverty-stricken rural dis
tricts of this country. She once went
to Washington to plead with President
Wilson for the franking privilege of
sending her "Santa Clams Mail." The
President and several members of his
Cabinet heartily endorsed her work
but were unable to grant the privi
lege. Mr. Hammer is associated with his
father in the lumbering business, with
extensive affiliations in this city and
in North Carolina. He was graduated
from the Chestnut Hill Academy with
the clase of 1909 and from the Wharton
School in 1913.

NEW YORK, Feb. 28. Alderman
Quinn, of Manhattan, Introduced a res

exorbitant marriage fees by "runners"
who frequent the "bower" and propose
to arrange weddings for pairs desir

The resolution went to the committee
on general welfare. It provides for a

building and abolition of the tipping
system by which the one in the city
hall has been run since 1895. Salaried
attendants would replace those now de-'

RURAL CREDITS TOPIC
MASTER GRANGERS FAVOR MEAS
URE IX BEHALF OF FARMERS.
Project Will Be Taken Before State
Association at Tillamook In May.
Field Day Proposed.
Rural credits or the benefit of the
farming communities of Oregon were
favored at the quarterly meeting of
Multnomah County Masters' and Lec
turers' Association held with Fairvlew
Grange Saturday, the 10 Granges of
the county being represented. T. J.
Kreuder, president of the association,
presided, and favored the proposal that
the Grangers of the state take definite
steps toward securing a rural credit
system for Oregon through the next
State Grange, which meets at Tilla
mook May 11, 12, 13 and 14.
Practically all the masters and lec
turers present favored the rural credit
project, and In the talks that were made
it was asserted that all prosperity
comes from the farm, and that when
the farmers suffer all the country suf
fers. It was further declared that one
of the greatest handicaps to the farmer
is high interest. It was decided to bring
the matter before the Pomona Grange,
March 17, at Gresham and before the
State Grange at Tillamook In May.
The proposal to hold a field day this
year was favored, and will be brought
up at the meeting of Pomona Grange.
All Granges In the county will be asked
to appoint committees to arrange for
this rield day. The end of the Mount
Tabor carline on the Base Line and the
Fair Grounds at Gresham were sug
gested as the location.
T. J. Kreuder was re-elected presi
dent of the association; Mrs. J. Cava
naugh. vice-president, and Mrs. Willda
Buck man, secretary-treasurer. The in
vitation of Multnomah Grange at Orient
to meet there in May was accepted.
