SOQFl 21 YEARS OLD
Birthday to Be Celebrated at
Gladstone Where Original
Assembly Was Held.

GLADSTONE PARK, June JO. (Spe
cial.) Twenty years' experience In
Chautauqua work at Gladstone Park,
10 miles south of Portland, has con
vinced the directors of the Willamette
Valley Assembly that the Chautauqua
Idea Is one of the greatest thoughts
which ever came to the mind of man.
This Institution, started 21 years ago
by publlo-spirlted men and -women of
Oregon City and Portland, has grown
to immense proportions during the last
10 years, and from July 7 to 19 wiU
celebrate its Zlst birthday in the Identi
cal spot where the original assembly
The record made by the Gladstone
Chautauqua is all the more remarka
ble for the reason that from the be
ginning the Chautauqua has never
been a commercial Institution in any
sense of the word. The men and women
behind the Chautauqua donate their
services and shoulder the responsibility
for the success of the assembly, and the
thousands who annually throng Into
picturesque Gladstone Park are given
two weeks of ideal entertainment on a
basis of absolute cost. The park itself,
which is undoubtedly one of the beau
ty spots of Oregon, ' consisting of 76
acres of stately pines and firs, has been
donated by the owner for the exclusive
use of the Chautauqua for 60 years that
the institution may more easily realize
- its Ideals.
Purpose Is to Uplift.
'The purpose' of the Chautauqua Is to
uplift; to bring together annually the
big "Chautauqua family" that the
members may enjoy a delightful two
weeks of social contact with the great
est orators, the deepest scholars and
the best entertainers of the day. The
Chautauqua Is not a circus, neither Is it
a theater, nor even a Summer lecture
course. It is not a campmeetlng in
any sense of the word, nor can it Te
called a music festival. And yet It
combines the charm of the circus, the
wit of the stage, the wisdom of the
platform and the eloquence of the pul
pit, with the beauty and healthfulness
of outdoor life. The results can never
be doubted for a moment; a better
if not a bigger citizenship follows the
trail of the Chautauqua, and Its influ
ence in Clackamas County and vicinity
has been widespread.
The officials of the Chautauqua are:
Dr. Fletcher Homan, president; C. H.
Dye, first vice-president; H. B. Cross,
secretary, and E. G. Caufield, treas
urer. The board of directors consists
of C. H. Dye, C. Sohuebel, J. E. Jack,
R. L. Holman, John Loder, O. D. Eby,
H. E. Cross, W. A. Huntley, George A.
Harding, Dr. George Hoeye, all well
known business and professional men
of Oregon City, and Mrs. Sarah A.
Evans, of Portland; L. E. Carter, of
Portland, and W. a Hurst, of Hub
bard. Secretary Crewe In IT Tears.
Dr. Homan, president of Willamette
University, is serving his second term
as pilot of the Chautauqua, while Sec
retary Cross, owner of the park, and
"Father of Gladstone." has been in the
harness at his post off and on for per
haps 17 years since 1898. when the as
sembly was organized. In addition
there are 32 honorary .vioe-presidents
from all sections of Clackamas County
and Portland, who annually put their
shoulder to the wheel with the direct
ors and help make the assembly a suc
cess. This assembly, which, by the way,
can be reached by auto via Clackamas,
by the Southern Pacific and by the
PorUand Railway, Light & Power
Company (the latter company running
cars directly into the park during the
session). Is perhaps the largest Chau
tauqua In the Northwest. The sessions
last 13 days, during which time 26
big programmes are given in the audi
torium, seating 4000 persons; more
than 60 Summer school classes' hours
are held In the mornings, and interest
ing "forum hours" are given from
11 to 12 each day In the main audi
torium. Vital subjects along sootal,
economic, religious and health lines
are discussed at the Summer school
classes by the leading men and women
of Oregon, while the afternoon and
evening programmes'are largely given
over to stellar Chautauqua attractions
from the East. These programmes are
interspersed with plenty of good music
and daily baseball games, while count
less other features, such as physical
culture work, domestic science and art,
demonstrations. kindergarten, fire
works display, etc., give the necessary
variety to a programme of already im
Some of the audltoriumeatures this

may be reserved from the assembly
and rented for the sessioii. An early

Near Snnnyside, Wash.
SUNNTSIDE, Wash., June 20. (Spe

adopted in the treatment of blight
infected orchards. One of the worst
examples was the pear orchard of W.
Funk, for which he paid about J500
an acre two or three years ago. Every
tree was taken out by the roots.
Another orchardist would not let the

for the affections of his pretty sister-in-law
or for the insurance money
which he had transferred to his wife's
name, Edward Bossen will be convicted
upon circumstantial evidence. Such
was the admissions derived from the
District Attorney's questioning of 24
prospective jurors in the Circuit Court
Many Jurors were dismissed for
cause when they stated that they
would not be willing to convict on
such evidence. Others were dismissed
for . cause on the ground that they
did not believe in capital punishment
The first witness who will be exam
ined on Monday will be W. F. Walker,
the Springfield undertaker who burled
Mrs. Bossen, and who exhumed her
body twice. Following him, the Cor
oner, whose Jury returned a verdict
that Mrs. Bossen had died from poison,
and that the testimony pointed toward
the husband as the source, will be ex
amined. Thomas Bossen is a timber cruiser
who lived on a small farm near Spring
field with his young wife and nine-months-old
child. The wife died sud
denly on March 20. Others living in
the house were awakened early in the
morning by sobs of the woman. They
found Bossen attending her, and heard
her dying accusation that Bossen poi
The body was burled without an in
quest, but the following day, based
upon suspicious circumstances, the Dis
trict Attorney ordered the body ex
humed. Bossen was then arrested.
The motives suggested are that he
