Selection Is Made, at Closed
Session of Board.

President and Jj. D. IS'orris, Hu
mane Officer, Will Quit.
At a closed session of the board of
directors of the Oregon Humane so
ciety, held yesterday. Otto J. Kraemer.
prominent Portland attorney, member
of the organization for more than
20 years, was chosen president to
succeed Albert Cowperthwait. re
signed. The election of another president
followed the charges recently pre
ferred against Mr. Cowperthwait, as
president and manager, and L- D.
Norris, human officer, alleging
cruelty in the disposition of injured
pets. Two instances were cited. A
dog, with a broken leg, was shot in
the presence of children, it was al
leged. A prized cat suffered the same
tate. Protests from the owners, it
was charged, met with abusive lan
guage from Mr. Cowperthwait.
As the result of the investigation
Mr. Cowperthwait severed his connec
tions with the humane society, ef
fective October 15. Mr. Norris, whose
resignation was demanded by the
complainants, tendered that document
to the directors at yesterday's ses
sion. Throughout the discussion of
the case and the nomination of suc
cessors the board has met in closed
session, declining to admit the press.
Mr. Kraemer will actively super
vise the affairs of the organization,
it was stated yesterday, though the
office of manager will be filled at a
later date. Candidates for this posi
tion, as well as possible successors
to Mr. Norris, have not been dis
closed. The resignation of the latter
as humane officer was accepted and
is to take effect November 1.
"We will make no ' more radical
changes than we are compelled to
by necessity," said Mr. Kraemer yes
terday. "The personnel of the present
board is excellent, and every one of
these active workers has promised
to serve as an assistant to the presi
dent. We will carry out the object
of the society as best we know how."
That the sessions of the society,
during the recent controversy, were
of necessity closed to general at
tendance and the press, and that all
future meetings of the board will
welcome visitors, was the declaration
of Mr. Kraemer at the close of the

Sugar Shortage at The Dalles As
sumes Serious Aspect.
THE DALLES, Or., Oct. 23. (Spe
cial.) The sugar shortage prevailing
here is hourly growing worse. Several
grocery stores have exhausted their
supplies and date of further shipments
is not known here.
Many homes are almost without any
sugar. It is declared certain that no
additional supply will arrive here un
til after the first of next month.
Grocers are strictly following the
custom of selling the small supplies
periodically to regular customers only.
Many persons have scoured the stores
of The Dalles in a vain attempt to
secure sugar from grocers other than
those with whom they have been ac
customed to trade.
There Is but one grocer in the city
who said he had any appreciable stock
of sugar on the way here. About 40
sacks are coming. Even this amount
is said to be sold.
Lack of adequate transportation is
assigned by local grocers as the cause
for the sugar shortage. Strikes which
have recently paralyzed steamship
travel and to some extent rail trans
portation are held largely responsible.
