ToSettIe Normal School
Referendum Less Effective on
Bill Passed by Last Legislature In
cludes Provisions for Other Insti
tutions Which Would Be In
jured by First Proposal.
SALEM, Or.. March 4. (Special.)
The suggestion in today's Oregonlan
that tne Normal School question be
settled by resort to the initiative
power rather than by demanding the
referendum upon the appropriation
bill passed by the last Legislature, is
one that meets hearty approval
among men who are familiar with
etate affairs. The idea meets favor be
cause the result of an initiative move
ment would definitely settle the Nor
mal School problem, while the submis
sion of the appropriation bill to a vote
of the people would not.
Under the initiative tho issue wouM
be directly upon the continuance of
the present Normal School system, and
the vote would show the wishes of the
people upon that subject. Because the
appropriation bill contains many Items,
including the asylum, penitentiary, He
form, Mute and Blind Schools, four
formal Schools, University and Agri
cultural College, the vote upon that
bill could not be said to show the
wishes of the people upon any one
If the bill were voted down the ac
tion of the people might be attributed
to the fact that it was an "omnibus"
bill, or to the fact that additional ap
propriations were made for the uni
versity or Agricultural College, or to
the appropriation for money for four
Normal Schools instead of three, two
or one.
The vote "would not show whether
the people favor one normal or three
or the abolition of ' all. In the mean
time, however, the appropriation for
necessary state institutions would be
held up, and a heavy Interest charge
Initiative Vote- In June, 1906.
An initiative measure would be voted
upon in June, 1906, Just at the close
of the next school year, and the result
would be known before the schools
opened in the Fall.
The normals would have due notice
of the action pending, and could pre
pare for any result that might follow.
They oould not complain that they had
been cut off without warning.
Drafting Law May Be Different.
To draft a law settling the normal
school question "would not be a small
task, however, for it would be neces
sary either to abolish. one or more of
the present schools and leave the
others to continue, or abolish all and
establish a new one in their stead.
Tho four normals now In existence
were created by three separate acts.
Monmouth Normal School exists by vir
tue of an act of the legislature of
1891, "which act contains nine sections,
providing for the appointment of a
board of regents, prescribing their
powers and duties, etc. This aot is
contained in sections 84S1 to 3489, in
clusive of Bellinger and Cotton's code.
Weston normal exists under an act
of the Legislature of 1893, contained in
sections 3450 to 3500, inclusive, of the
code. The Ashland and Drain schools
were created in one act passed by tho
Legislature of 1899, which act is con
tained in sections S501 to 2507, inclu
sive, of the code.
If it were desired merely to discon
tinue one or more of these schools this
could be done by an act repealing the
sections of the code establishing them,
thus leaving the others to continue,
but if either Ashland or Drain normals
were to be effected, leaving one to
continue, the change would have to be
made by amendment rather than by
repeal, for both exist under one law.
Uniform Control Desired.
All through the last session of the
Legislature there was a strong desire
among many members to place all the
Normal Schools under one board of re
gents., the purpose being to remove
local influences which are too often
guided by selfish interests. In one or
porhaps more of the schools it has
been charged that the continuance In
office of the president of the school
depended upon his buying supplies
from a store In wnich a member of tho
Board' of Regents was interested. Lo
cal interests are sometimes concerned
more with the number of students
brought to the school than with the
standard of work maintained. To re
move this influence and bring all the
schools Into harmonious relations it
was proposed to create one Board of
Regents for all the schools, with not
more than ono member residing in a
county whore one of the schools is
An act embodying this plan might
be prepared and proposed by initiative,
specifying the schools that shall be
maintained by the slate, and repealing
ell the present laws authorizing the
operation of the schools.
. To draft a law that will bo satis
factory to a majority of those who
favor a change in the Normal Sohool
eyatem. is where the difficulty would
most likely arise. Members of the ways
and means committee of the Legisla
ture say that the Ashland school made
the best showing In point of work done
in proportion to the money expended.
'Weston is tne only place whore the
BtpXB has-made much of an Investment
in -buildings. Monmouth . Is located
iH-arest to the - center of population.
Tho discontinuance of any one of these
three schools would raise considerable
sectional opposition on the grounds in
dicated, but not so much could ba sail
In behalf of Drain normal.
But since the proposal has been made
to settle the Normal School question
by initiative petition. It Is believed by
nicn familiar with state affairs that a
law could be drawn that would meet
the approval of a large majority of the
people of the state, and that would in
sure a more economical expenditure of
the money appropriated for normal
. Normal School Machine.
:Machlne!" exclaimed' Stats Senator
Hodson, of Multnomah Countyf yester
day. "All through-the-last essioa wo
heard a cry against a "machine that
was supposed to "have its headquarters
in Multnomah County, but I want to
toll. you that there is no "machine In
Oregon that can compare- with that of
the Normal Schools. Tho members of
that Normal School machine stood to
gether for their common -welfare, re
gardless of party or faction- Going up
against that machine was like butting
your head again a stone wall. The
Normal Schools exert more influence
over legislation tnan any machine I
know of ,
To prevent the use of the Normal
Schools as the basis for logrolling in
the Legislature, as well as to concen-.
trate educational effort rather than
scatter It, is the purpose of those who
are tirging the change in the Normal
School system.

The Secretary of State has also infor

and the other state officers who stood by
him in vetoing the -bill.
There was an attempt last night to hold
another meeting of the committee and re

Senate took away the Senate committee,
and tho meeting was a failure. A num

learn today from General Freight and
Passenger Agent W. E. Coman that tho
Southern Pacific will sell reduced rate
tickets from Portland through the Val

these tickets, with stop-over privileges,
will be sold only to holders of tickets
from the East. "When the Salem Com
mercial Club first asked that stop-over
tickets be sold. Southern Pacific officials
hesitated, for the reason that selling such
.tickets at reduced .rates would injure
their local business.

Supreme Court Takes Part of Tres
passer Thrown From Train.
OLYMPIA, "Wash.. March 4. 3peclal.)
In tho case of Charles H. Dixon, re
spondent, vs. Northern Pacific Railway
Company, an opinion of tho Supreme
Court decides two Important points. One,
is that the. law will not permit a master
to allow his servant to unnecessarily
abuse or Imperil the life or limb even of
a trespasser, and If the company, through
Its servants, willfully Injure him. It will
be liable even though ho may have been
guilty of contributory negligence.
The other point, upon which there is a
great conflict of authority. Is that it is
within the Implied authority of a brake
man to expel trespassers from a railway
train. The action was to recover dam
ages for an alleged wanton and willful
act in kicking Dixon from a moving
freight train near CentraLa. by a brake
man, with tho result that Dixon was so
injured that amputation of one arm was
necessary. The 'Judgment of the lower
court was for $1999. Judgment Is affirmed.

significant political utterances were made

Stewart aroused a storm of applause by
introducing Governor Gooding as the

unanimous approval of the company.
Chairman Brady, of the state commit

declared that, having given Boise tho
permanent capital the party could also

But Doctors Will Testify Their Con
viction in Poisoning, Nevertheless.
HONOLULU, March 4. High Sheriff
Henry declared positively tonight that, so
far, there had not been discovered any
traces of strychnine either In the stomach
or medicines of Mrs. Stanford. It is prob
able that the inquest will be begun next
A large number of witnesses have been
summoned. Including a number of physi

what the chemists report, it is their belief
that strychnine poisoning was the cause

Two Servants Not Mentioned Are
Now Being Shadowed.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 4. So far as
the police department of this city is con
cerned, matters are at an absolute stand
still In the investigation of the mysteri
ous death of Mrs. Jane Lathrop Stanford.
The filing of the will of Mrs. Stanford
with the County Clerk of Santa Clara
County, in the City of San Jose, late this
afternoon, caused a stir in police and de
tective circles. It had been argued by
them that the bequests In the instrument
might furnish a clew that would lead
toward the unraveling of the baffling tan
gle. Whether or not the will has aided
the pollco Is unknown, as they are- not
ready to comment on this phase of the
According to the terms of the document
the only servant who Is a beneficiary to a
considerable extent is Miss Bertha Ber
ner, for 19 years a secretary to the late
Mrs. Stanford. She is bequeathed the sum
of $15,000. VJn her last testament Mrs.
Stanford refers most affectionately to
Miss Berner, ifrhom she styles "a devoted

small amount each.
The former maid, Miss Richmond, and
the ex-butler, Beverly, each of whom are
being shadowed by detectives, were not

Departure of Detectives Connected
With Reticence of Sheriff.
HONOLULU, March 4. The sailing
for Honolulu on tho Oceanic Steamship
Company's vessel, Alameda, today of
Captain Jules Callundan, representing
a private detective agency at San Fran
cisco, and Harry C Reynolds, of the
San Francisco Police Department, Is
regarded here as evidence that the au
thorities of the latter city as well a3
the representatives of the Stanford
estate believe thatMrs. Stanford wa$
poisoned, which Is against the theory
held by some persons that death, was
due to natural causes. It Is possible
that this conclusion is based on cable
grams sent by High Sheriff Henry to
the San Francisco police authorities
containing information which has not
been given out here.
The High Sheriff admits, however,
that the departure of the detectives
from San Francisco Indicates that in
their belief a crime has been, committed
and that a thorough investigation will
be held, but beyond this be declines to
give any information. High- Sheriff,;
Hfcsxy 6ay that the report -' or ' tho
chemists will not be made before- to
night. It Is now considered possible
that the Inquest which it had been ax
ranged should immediately follow tho
report of the chemists will be post
poned until the arrival of the Alameda.
The police authorities hero are main
taining an extraordinary secrecy re

Miss Hopkins and Ah Hong Guarded
In University Residence.
4. The handsome residence of Mrs. Stan
ford continues to be carefully guarded,
and no one is allowed to enter or leave
the mansion. In It are two servants, who
are kept there like prisoners. They are
Miss Nerah Hopkins and Ah Hong. Miss
Hopkins has been housemaid at the
campus residence for some time past, and
during the past two days it has been re
ported by those guarding the house that
she was In San Francisco. Today her
presence at the university residence be
came disclosed, but no one Is allowed to
see her. Ever since the first alleged, at
tempt to poison Mrs. Stanford was made
Miss Hopkins has refused to discuss the
matter with anyone.
Tho report that the strychnine found in
the bicarbonate of soda which Mrs. Stan
ford took to Honolulu could have come
from the Stanford stock farm seemed in
credible. The foreman of the farm stated
today that the last stychnlne on the place
was in September. 1904. Since that time
poisoned barley has been used to kill
What Sulphur Docs
For the Human Body In Health and
The mention of sulphur will recall to
many of us the early days when our
mothers and grandmothers gave us our
daily dose of sulphur and molasses every
Spring and Fall.
It was the universal Spring and Fall
"blood purifier," tonic and cure-all, and
mind you, this old-fashioned remedy was
not without merit-
The idea was good, but the remedy was
crude and unpalatable, and a large quan
tity had to be taken to get any effect
Nowadays we get all the beneficial ef
fects of sulphur in a palatable, concen
trated form, so that a single grain is.
far more effective than a tablespoonful
of the crude sulphur.
In recent years research and expari
ment havo proven that the beat sulphur
for medicinal use is that obtained from
Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold In
drug stores under the name of Stuart's
Calcium Wafers. They are small chocolate-coated
pellets and contain the ac
tive medicinal principle of sulphur la a
highly concentrated, effective form.
Few people are aware of the value of
this form of sulphur in restoring and
maintaining bodily vigor and health: sul
phur acts directly on the liver and ex
cretory organs and purifies and enriches
-tho blood by tha prompt elimination of
waste material.
Our grandmothers knew this when they
dosed us with sulphur and molasses every
Spring and Fall, but the crudity and im
purity of ordinary flours of sulphur
were often worse than the disease, and
cannot compare withy the modern con
centrated preparations of sulphur, of
which Stuart's Calcium Wafers ii un
doubtedly the best and most widely used.
They are the natural antidote for liver
and kidney troubles and euro constipa
tion and purify" the blood In a way that
often surprises patient and physician
Dr. R. M. Wllkins, while experiment
ing with sulphur remedies, scon found
that the sulphur from Calcium was su
perior to any other form. He says: "For
liver, kidney and blood troubles, espe
cially when resulting from constipation
or malaria, I have been surprised at the
results obtained from Stuart's Calcium
Wafers. In patients suffering from bolls
and pimples and even deep-seated car
buncles, I have repeatedly seen them dry
up and disappear In four or five -days,
leaving the skin clear and smooth- Al
though Stuart's Calcium Wafers is a pro
prietary article and sold by druggists and
for that reason tabooed by many physi
cians, yet I know of nothing so safe and
reliable for constipation, liver and kid
ney troubles and especially In all forms
of skin diseases a3 this remedy."
At any rate people who are tired of
pills, cathartics and so-called blood
"purifiers" will find in Stuart's Calcium
Wafers a far safer, more palatable and
effective preparation.
The grocer would bs too,
comfortable if all his goods
were like Schilling's Best and
backed by the maker as they
are. .
