Samuel P. Lockwcod Rises
Rapidly in Business
World of City.
IDEAS ARE CONSTRUCTIVE
I'or Quarter of Century Vice-President
and tieneral Manager of In
surance Company Has Made
Portland His Home.
Sarnuei P. Lock wood is 4i years old.
Ho lies lived in Portland lor 25 years,
all his interests are here, and he has
fchown his business ability by rising to
the position, of vice-president and een
erl manager of the Columbia Lite &
Truet Co. He is married and has four
children. His eldest son is just fin
ishing- his sophomore year in college,
two children are in the Portland pub
lic Bcnoois, and one is not yet of school
Add to this that Mr. Lockwood al
Tvays has taken the keenest Interest
in the Portland public schools, with
three of his children receiving their
general school education there, that he
has constructive ideas about the policy
of the schools and their administra
tion: and the reasons why he has been
urged by many citizens to become a
candidate for School Director at the
school election of June 19 are plain.
Mr. Lockwood had never before
Bought public office, nor been identl-
nea v.-it u political organizations, out
in. response to the many requests that
he run, he recently announced his can
didacy. There is a general idea, abroad that
one of the bis issues of this school
c-ainpaign is whether a. director favor
ing Superintendent Alderman or op
posing Superintendent Alderman shall
he elected, and it has been said that
Mr. Lockwood is the pro-Alderman
candidate. But this is not Mr. Lock
wood's conception of his own candidacy,
and is far from being a true expres
sion of his reasons for becoming a
Sysieni Efficiency Paramount.
'With me, there is one paramount
Issue and only one," said lr. Lock
wood. "That issue is the efficiency of
the school system itself. The main
point that we must keep in mind la
that we have our schools for one pur
pose, and that purpose is the educa
tion of our children. And by educa
tion, t mean the best education, the
one that will best fit the child to be
come a useful citizen who has been so
fitted by his or her school training
as to add another efficient unit to our
community, and thereby promote the
greater efficiency- of" the community
"The purpose behind our public school
system is not to provide a place for
Superintendent Alderman or any other
official. It Is not to spend money for
fcchools. Jt is not to give Jobs to con
tractors. It Is not to create differences
between the school directors and
cause them to line up behind one man"
"There is just this one big main pur
pose of our publio schools -education.
School houses, jobs for contractors, su
perintendents and teachers are only in
cidental in carrying out that purpose."
So Alderman Pledge Made.
Then Mr. Lockwood spoke directly
about the Alderman issue. "I am not
pledged for or against Mr. Alderman,"
he said. "If elected, I will go on the
School Board with an open mind. What
I am pledged for is efficiency in the
school system, and to get the best man
available for the school system. How
ever, as 5ar. Alderman has been re
elected for the next year, I think he
should have absolutely the united sup
port of the board during tha.t year. It
Is not fair to him, nor to the schools,
to have to combat an antagonistic
tplrit on the board.
"In all pedagogical matters. the
leadership must rest "in the superin
tendent of schools. Much controversy
in the past has surrounded the selec
tion of a superintendent. It appears to
me. that it would be well. Instead of
selecting a Superintendent for a year,
or even for a. longer definite period, to
elect him to the office for an inde
terminate period. If a mistake is made
in the selection, one year is too long
t keep him in office: while on the
other hand, if the right man Is se
lected, a year Is too short. He should
have a chance to work out his policies
undisturbed by controversy, and with
out having to 'play politics' in the last
two or three months to 'build up his
fences," as the politicians say.
"During a tenure of office of only
one year, the uncertainty as to the fu
ture must be a. disturbing element in
the mind of the superintendent, and
during the last two or three months of
his incumbency, his future plans for
the work are much hampered. A can
didate for superintendent who fears
his ability to give satisfaction, and for
that reason desires guaranteed em
ployment for a fixed period, should be
considered unworthy. A man large
enoush for the place will have the
confidence that the community will de
Fire to retain his services. By this
system, controversies, annually arising
with reference to the office may be
loral Support XKeuary.
The superintendent, during the term
for which he has been elected, should
have and la entitled to have the loyal
support of the School Board, and he
must have It If it is expected that he
will have the loyalty of the principals
and teachers who report to him. With
out that loyalty on the part of his
lieutenants, the team work absolutely
essential to the proper conduct of the
business, or any other business, cannot
be obtained. If I am elected, I cer
tainly shall consider It my duty to
support our present superintendent to
the utmost of my ability."
Mr. Lockwood Is also a firm believer
in harmony on the School Board.
"To my mind," he explained, the
members of the Board should coirsider
themselves not as five units, but as
five integral parts of one unit. . They
should give honest consideration to all
the great Questions comln; before them
with perfect freedom in expressing
their views. But they should be just
as ready to abide by the decision of
the majority. That ought to end aH
bickering. When a majority of the
Board has decided a matter, the whole
Board ought to get in behind- that
policy ajid uphold it. The work is too
big for personalities and petty con
tentions. "How can we expect loyalty on the
part of teachers and principals if the
the Board sets an example of disloyalty
and controversy? To my mind, abso
lute harmony among the directors is
the first essential toward increasing
the efficiency of the public school
School System Bin BualneMa.
"The public school system is a big
business. Loyalty is just as essential
to the success of the schools as It is
essential to the success of business.
Trow successful, for example, would a
big business be if the manager could
sot command the loyalty of thoao un
der htm. nor command the support of
A number of questions asked blm
regarding his attitude toward several
matters of school policy were discussed
by Mr. Lockwood.
"With reference to domestic science,"
he said, "I have been much impressed
with the work already done, and the
opportunities for the future. The do
mestic surroundings of many girls are
such that it ia only through the public
schools that they can hope to learn the
art of home-making.
"Having taken a course in manual
training in the Chicago public schools
myself, I have experienced the benefits
and naturally think that work should
be encouraged. The playgrounds have
done much to popularize the schools.
"One day in -the last Summer vaca
tion I passed one of the schoolhouses
and stopped to comment on the fact
that the playground was filled with
children. When I was a boy we didn't
go near the schoolhouse in vacation
time. Now some of the children' hap
piest hours are passed in and about
the sehoolhouses; and when we get
them to love their schools, they do
Candidate Friend of A'igtat Schools.
"I am a friend of the night schools,
and I believe that whenever a consid
erable number of persons desire to
spend their evenings in personal im
provement and study or domestic sci
ence work, the School Board should
provide them with the necessary in
structors and equipment.
- "I have been asked about the life
tenure law as relating to teachers. The

Kleetiosi of June 19.
old system of requiring teachers to be
elected each year was wrong. In cor
recting that condition by passage of
the present tenure of office bill, 1 be
lieve the pendulum was allowed to
swing too far to tho other extreme. I
believe good teachers, should feel se
cure in their positions without the un
certainty surrounding an annual elec
tion, but on the other hand, to quote
from the report of the survey:
."'Perhaps one of the surest means of
producing future inefficiency in a
teaching force is to take away the spur
to growth, activity and efficiency by
providing life-tenure or its equivalent
"There is a middle ground. Just to
both sides, where the nervousness in
the minds of teachers resulting from
annual elections may be eliminated,
and at the same time not take from
tho teachers the stimulus to put forth
their best efforts."
There is one point about Mr. Lock
wood that should perhaps be cleared
up at this time for the voters once and
for all. Mr. Lockwood is not "Charley"'
Lockwood, promoter, president and
member-in-chief of tho late Republican
Club, nor is he related to him.
SUIT ASKS LOST CARGO PAY
For Flour on Vessel Sunk In CoIIl
siou, $7500 Is Ieinandetl.
Growing out of the wreck of the
river steamer Gamecock near Cascade
Locks last September, a suit for $7500
waa filed in County Clerk Coffey's of
fice yesterday morning by the Astoria
Flouring Mills Company against the
Willamette & Columbia River Towing
Company, owners of the sunken vessel.
The flour mills company, according to
the complaint, shipped 3100 sacks of
wheat, said to be worth $7500, on the
Gamecock from Tho Dalles, billed to
Astoria, on September 9, the day before
the wreck. This cargo, they charge,
was lost when the boat went down. G.
C. Fulton, as attorney for the Flouring
Mills Company, filed the complaint.
Man Fined 950 for Attack.
Though he declared that he was too
drunk at the time of the attack to
know anything about it, Kdward Kopis

Morse Transfer Company, was fined $50
in Municipal Court yesterday morning
for an attempted assault upon Mrs.
Klvah Carlton, of 370 Sixth street. He
was positively identified by the woman.

NEW LAW IS IN EFFECT
Voter Must Be Kcfilstered and En
rolled as Taxpayer BaUo Must
Be Cast in Home District.
Schools Polling Places.
Potland's first school election under
the new law will be held next Saturday
from 12 to 8 P. M. The election is to
choose a Director for five years to
succeed Dr. Ernst A. Sommer, whose
term expires on that day. Dr. Sommer
is a candidate to succeed himself and
he is being opposed by S. P. Lockwood.
Under the new law the polls remain
open much, longer than heretofore, the
voting hours formerly having been
from 3 to 6 P. M. There will be but
one judge and two clerks in charge at
the various polling places.
A requirement of the new statute
that may confuse voters is that in
stead of being allowed to vote at any
polling place in the city, as has been
the rula previously, each must vote in
tho place provided for the various pse
cincts of which the voters are resi
dents. The registration books are the
guide as to residence, and voters must

tho tax rolls are eligible o vote at
Saturday's election, with tho exception
that when one is a stockholder in a
corporation or partnership that is on
the tax roll he or she may vote. Elec

each voter If his name is on the ta
roll. Purchase of property since the
rolls were made up does not make tho
Schoolnousca to Be Used.
Judges and clerks have been ap
pointed and voting places have been
fixed by School Clerk Thomas. The
law requires that schoolhouses must be
used, wherever possible, for polling
places, and this rule has been followed
closely. There are but three excep
tions, it having been found necessary
to use three places on tho West Side,
exclusive of schoolhouses, as follows:
County Courthouse, furniture store at
Second and Morrison and store room at
44 Twenty-third street.
This is the first time that it has been
necessary to collect voters of various
precincts of tho city at erne placa for
voting purposes, and Clerk Thomas
says the best arrangement possible has
been made, fchould this not meet with
the convenience of all, however, he
asks that suggestions be made as to
how the grouping may be Improved,
and efforts will be made to improve
the arrangements in future.

FESTIVAL OF 1915 BEST
EVER SEEN, IS DECISION
Various Features Win Praise of Different Critics, but All Unite in Com
mending General Show and Punctuality of Listed Attractions. .
C i m UK best Portland has ever
I seen." This la the way " mu-
nlcipal officials, business wen
and tho public generally express their
opinion of this year's Hose Festival.
Everybody was pleased with the whole
show from the opening event of tho
children's parade to tho closing; feat
ure, the electric parade.
Following are some of the expres
sions gleaned from business people, of
ficials and others:
Mayor Albee I do not think there is
any question about it having been the
best Kose Festival Portland has ever
seen. Too much credit cannot be given
those in charse.of the various events.
I was particularly impressed with the
children's" parade, which was, I believe,
tho best ever. Too much praise cannot
be given Robert Krohn. who had charge
of this affair. I think the Festival Cen
ter on the. plaza blocks waa a great
Improvement. The parades were beau
tiful. I was impressed particularly
with tha remarkable showing made by
the firemen in the vehicle parade on
Mr. Jlennun Ulvca Praise.
S. Benson The greatest ever, is the
only way I can express my opinion on
the subject. It was a remarkable af
fair. I was particularly delighted with
the decorations on the automobiles and
other vehicles. I think it speaks well
for tho city and the people.
Adolph Wolfe I waa delighted. I
think tho Festival surpassed anything
wo have ever had. I think every one
feels that way about it.
W. J. Clemens It was wonderful. I
believe It was a surprise to everyone.
The floral parade. 1 believe, was a
winner- It had more high-grade deco
rated vehicles than ever before. In
past Festivals there may have been
some finer vehicles from an artistic
standpoint, but in no former parade
has there beeu such a large number of
elegantly decorated vehicles. Tho pros
perity parade was beyond description.
It was so exquisite that I doubt If the
public could appreciate it all. I have
been greatly impressed with tha idea
of putting the entire Festival up faster
and quicker and more condensed, as
has been carried out this year.
W. P. Olds It was tho best Festival
ever held in Portland. This is particu
larly true with the parades. The .-parades
and other features were far better.
The roses, however, were not better.
Super 1xce!!ence Ia Conceded.
W. F. Woodward I dislike to cast
any reflection upon past Festivals with
which I have been connected, but I am
forced, to admit that this year's was
the best ever. Tho parades were beau
tiful and effective. I think the whole
affair was a great surprise to Port
land. It certainly was to mo' because
of its excellence. I do not believe the
people cf PorUand were expecting such
a great affair. The men in charge de
serve preat praise.
A. I.. Barbur. City Auditor It was a
remarkable Festival. The parades were
especially good, owing to the large
number of beautiful floats. They
showed the results of a great deal of
hard work. I think too much praise
cannot be given the firemen for the
showing they made.
George H. Himes I have seen par
ades in Portland and elsewhere for the
last 50 years, but I never have sees
anything to equal the prosperity par
ado of Friday. I think It was a marvel
ous affair and the best by far that
Portland has ever produced.
A. H. Eilers I bad some friends here
from California and their . eyes were
opened by the marvelous beauty of our
floral exhibitions. It was the best af
fair of the kind I have ever seen here
or elsewhere and I have Been a num
ber in various parts of the country.
My friends were amazed at what they
Circuit Judge Gantenbein Tho par
ades and other features of this year's
Festival were extremely beautiful. It
was the best affair taken as a whole
that I have ever seen.
Ontn Eiim11It Praised.
J. C. HnRlish I was Impressed par
ticularly with the Festival Center. I
think that was a remarkably good plan
to put the floral part of the show in
tho park blocks. The maze of flowers
opened the eyes of our people to the
floral possibilities hero. I am sure the
exhibit (.mazed the visitors not only be
cause of the beauty of the exhibit, but
also the varlety of flowers shown.
Such an exhibition is of inestimable
value to the city.
Julius L. Meier It was the best Fes
tival we have ever had." It was con
densed and snappy and punctual, I
was down early the first morning and
I noted that the band started its con
cert on tho dot of time. Every feature
of tho Festival thereafter was on time.

Applause Shows Appreciation.. -
Circuit Judge Morrow- The Festival
was exceptionally beautiful. I ,was
particularly impressed by tho extent,
the beauty and the variety ot the par
ade of Friday. It showed not only good
management but great publio interest.
I happened to be in the parade and all
along the line there waa extreme en
thusiasm which showed great public
approval of the affair.
Joseph Simon The Festival this year
was the finest I have evereen in Ore
gon. The committees that had charge
deserve great credit. I would not at
tempt to single out any one feature
and. brand it as particular" success
because I think the entire show went
off wonderfully well.
County Commissioner Lightner I
was particularly well pleased with the
Festival Center on the park blocks. 1
thought that was an extremely fine
placa for it and I think a great show
ing was made. The whole , show was
tlvat Center I.ikrd.
City Commissioner Daly I think the
Festival Center plan this year was one
of the best features of the whole show.
It brought out tho floral possibilities
of the city, showing what is being' done
In the way of community floriculture.
I think the whole show was a remark
able success and the best ever.
City Commissioner Brewster It was
a wonderfully beautiful and success
ful Festival. I was particularly inter
ested in the Festival Center, on the
park blocks, which I believe was a
remarkably good feature of the show.
City Attorney LaRothe The Rose
Festival this year was just the right
length. There were no gaps and every
thing was condensed and carried out
with a snap. It seemed much better
than drawing- it out over an entire
week. I am sure it was the best Rose
Festival Portland has ever seen.
Credit Given Committees.
City Commissioner Bigelow It was
very, very fine. Every feature. I be
lieve, was an improvement over last
year. Tho Festival Center was the
most pleasing feature of any Festival
Portland has ever held, in my Judg
ment. The committee in charge de
serve great credit. I heard a great
deal of comment about the wonders
of the Festival Center. Eastern peo
ple were exceedingly well impressed
with the showing. I heard many vis
itors declare that it surpassed the ex
pensive floral productions at tho Panama-Pacific
City Treasurer William Adams The
best ever is the only way 'I can express
my opinion. -Every feature was excel
lent. It waa condensed and snappy and
held the public interest throughout.
Franklin T. Griffith It was the
finest Rose Festival wo have ever ha'd.
I cannot einsle out any -one feature
that was particularly good, because it
was all good. There was great interest
in all parts of the festival. I don't
think the parades were wanting In any

tormenting rooa. ssucn termentation is
unnatural, but may involve most seri

stop or prevent fermentation of the
food contents of the stomach and to
neutralize the acid, and render it
bland and harmless, a teaspoonful of
bisurated magnesia, probably the best
and most effective corrector of acid
stomach known, should bo taken In a
quarter of a glass of hot or cold water
immediately after eating, or whenever

fermentation, and neutralizes the acid

wind and acidity are dangerous and
unnecessary. Stop or prevent them by
the use of a proper antacid, such as
bisurated magnesia, which can be ob

The Rose Show, while a beautiful
loeal sentiment in every way and well
worth all the time and thought given
to it, incurred a. great hardship on this
firm, struggling against time to win
out in a game of finances.
As I told you before, some of our
stockholders must be paid off. They
want their money. The only way in
which this business can be saved is
to take the money out of the firm.
This muct be done by selling pianos at
a price so low that they will insure
I have cut and slashed regardless of
cost and have sold many fine, standard-make
instruments at prices un
heard of in Portland or anywhere else.
I have sold here in Portland standard
makes for less money than they would
cost wholesale on the floor in their
Eastern factories and showrooms.
But I see that I must go still fur
ther. The past week's loss of busi
ness, due to the fact that people were
interested in the rose show and en
tertaining visitors, has meant the loss
of many precious days to me.
Now, I must ask you to hurry. I
will make it worth your while. If
you will help me save this business
by helping me raise the balance of
the $ 40,000 which I must raise to pay
off stockholders, then I guarantee to
give you in return piano values such
