Complete exoneration of the state in
dustrial accident commission is given
by Governor Olcott in connection with
tiie charges of Lee Roy IS. Keeley, a
Portland attorney, over the A. G. Dib
licrn compensation case. In upholding
the action of the commission, the gov

which had been filed against the com

Urs. Diboern and others who had per

The governor had turned over to the
commission the charges which Mr.
Ktplcy had filed and the commission,
in a statement to the governor, says it
refused to deal with Mr. Keeley when
it learned that the attorney had pro
cured a contract from Mrs. iJibbern,
requiring her to pay him 40 per cent
of all compensation she should receive
from the state because of the death of

A. G. Dibbern, deceased husband of
the woman involved in the controversy,
fcustained a fatal accident while em
ployed at the Grant Smith-Porter ship
yard on February 19, this year. The
widow was awarded $4000 in compear
Attorney Keeley alleged that the
commission refused to recognize his
contract with Mrs. Dibbern and that the
state commission is controlled by em
ployers and is not operating in the
interest of employes, other charges of
similar import were made.
In upholding the action of the com
mission, the governor wrote to Mr.
Keeley: "Your allegations against the
commission cover a wide range, but ac
to the Dibbern case it appears to be
clearly established that you obtained a
contract from Mrs. Dibbern, whose hus
band was killed in an industrial acci
dent, whereby she was to pay you 40
per cent of the compensation she might
be awarded by the commission.
Governor Upholds Commlanlon.
"I take the same view as the com
mission that it is unnecessary for de
pendents having claims against the
state under the compensation law to
pay any portion of their compensation
for attorneys' fees, as that is contrary
to the purpose of the law, and ths
action of the commission in refusing
to recognize your contract with the
widow must have my approval."
The executive has on file a signed
statement by Mrs. Dibbern that even
before her husband was buried Attor
ney Keeley came to her home and of
fered to assist her in procuring com
pensation as a friend of the family
and without charge. Later, her state
ment reads, he came back and told her
to sign a paper which he told her was
needed to give him authority to act
for her. She says she signed this
without knowing its contents, only to
find later it was a contract whereby
she bound herself to pay the attorney

photoplay, whlcn opened yesterday at
the Liberty theater.
A murder mystery, a case of dual
identity, flashes of Bohemian life and
a romance that starts on the rocks
but ends in a safe harbor are some
of the attractive things offered in
this detective film drama.
Miss Clayton plays a sort of dual
role. She is in reality Ruth Schuyler,
wife of a man 40 years her senior.
To escape the hateful monotony of
wedded life,the young wife assumes the
name o f Victoria Van Allen hence
"Vicky Van" rents a house, and holds
weekly bohemian parties. The husband
discovers the game, abuses her, and
later is found dead. Thus enters the
mystery, plus the infallible Stone, and
a solution cf the affair that frees the
young widow from suspicion.
Emory Johnson is the young chap
who mistakes the wealthy man's wife
for his daughter and falls in love
with her, while Noah Beery has the
role of the aged husband.
Clara Kimball Young, beautiful star,
who has been called "the stormy petrel
of filmdom" because of conflicts with
producers and distributors, jumps from
detective comedy-drama to highly
dramatic secret service and war stuff
in her new Sunset theater picture.
"The Road Through the Dark." It's
a picturization of the story by Maud
Radford Warren and is a thrilling af
fair. Jack Holt, Henry Woodward, Eleanor
Fair, Bobby Connolly and Elmo Lincoln
are among the well-known players
with Miss Young, in this Select pro

French girl in love with an American,
who yields herself to a German war
chief to save the people of her vil
lage. Then, within the German lines
and in command of vital secrets, the

We have had a lovely day in every
sense. The weather has been ideal, our

Jerseys has been so cordial, the hospi

However. I may mention a few of the

I wish I had the space to mention
the other 180, but I have not. Our first
visit of tha day was at the Iron Mine
farm of W. M. Ladd, back of Oswego.
His father, W. S. Ladd. imported the
second Jersey that came to Oregon.
That was in 18S2. W. C. Myers of Ash
land brought in the first, in 1873.
The herd of W. S. Ladd, later of Ladd
& Reed, has been kept up and increased
and has developed some wonderful ani
mals, like the champions Golden Glow
sndtMcrry Mist. Mr. Ladd's place, near
Oswego, is a very fine home for his
pets, and his superintendent, ' D.
Brooks Hogan, takes as great an in
terest as the owner. Many of the herd
were led before us and their records
given. In the reading of these records
and the running comments it developed
that Oregon has more Jerseys with rec
ords above 900 pounds butter fat a year
thnn any other state in the union.
Banquet at Carey Farm.
From the Ladd place to the farm of
Ed Carey at Carlton was only two hops
and a Jump for autos, and there we
found real, real Joy, for Mrs. Carey had
prepared a lunch for us. She called it
a mncn; we persist in calling It a
banquet. It was served in a great room
on the second floor of the 50x90-foot
barn, which was in tho pink of order.
It was served in the cafeteria style

Let me say that Mrs. Carey can be
safely backed against any chef in Port
land or other housewife in Oregon for
culinary supremacy, especially as to
coffee. We consumed 40 quarts of it,
and none better was ever made. To
finish, we had 20 gallons of ice cream.
I'll bet a dollar that some of the heavy
eaters I decline being personal will
not eat another bite on the trip.
And the Carey herd, gee! such Jer

for there were animals by the dozen,
descended from the great prize winners
of the Carey herds.
Frank Lynn'a Farm ViKited.
Away we went, after bidding good
bye to the Careys, to the home of
Frank Lynn, in Polk county, near
Perry Dale. As an ideal site for a
farm and farm home, the Lynns have
it. Their home under the great oaks
on a knoll, their great circular barn,
with a silo in its center and a water
tank on top; the 30 stalls each with
about 70 square feet of efface; the
meadows and cultivated fields stretch
ing away to the west 160 acres in tiie
place. And such orderliness and clean
liness and such a warmth of welcome.
If there is any- money in the Jersey
game the Lynns must be getting it.
If there is any comfort in success, the
Lynns are achieving it. If in Portland
there is a finer home than the Lynns
have well, there "ain't."
There we saw the pride of the Lynns,
