WOMAN MAYOR OF UMATILLA IS
PRETTY, CLEVER AND DIPLOMAT
Laura Jane Starcher's Brevity of Speech Is as Defined as Her Ability to
Govern BothHome and Municipality Cause of Working Women Espoused.

BY LEONE CASS BAER.
EN1US always has been set to aft
accompaniment of brevity in
speech. Possibly this is one rea
son we've come to speech in a woman.
In fact, it's so seldom one finds either
genius or brevity of anything, except
ing skirts and sense of humor, about a
woman that when it does occur the oc
casion should be rushed Into print.
Witness then an accounting of a
brief chat with Mrs. Laura Jane
Starcher. woman Mayor of Umatilla.
She has genius, which you know has
been defined as a big capacity for
She is also chary of her chatter. She
says she is no politician, and then pro
ceeds calmly to side-step every leading
question oqe can think up to fire at
Silence Mark of Genius.
Somehow we rather expect men
geniuses to be silent and cryptic and
Napoleon rarely spoke when he could
avoid it. while Wellington-was similar
ly silent. Lord Kitchener was posi
tively Sphinx-like in his reserve. Lord
Palmerston was proverbially silent,
while William- Pitt throughout his
meteoric career was given - to long
periods of J silence. .-J Isaac Newton,
world famous as p. scientist, spoke
rarely, save to - answer a -question.
Darwin wrote big books, fr'it spoke
You'll always notice that writers are
usually not the great talkers. Tolstoi,
most amiable of men, was reserved
lnv conversation and at times among
the most mute of men. Balzac, the
great French romancist, when engaged
in thinking out a new work, would fre
quently pass days and days talking to
no one but himself. Beethoven as
reticent, Mozart sparing In his speech,
while it is said of Chopin that he loved
silence better even than music.

cial.) Alfred FUckinger, who
died suddenly at Suver, Or., Feb
ruary 11, in the home which he
built 31 years ago, was the son
of Henry FUckinger, one of Polk
County's pioneers, who located
at Suver in the early "50s.
In 1879 Mr. FUckinger was
married to Eunice L. Brown, and
they located on a farm near the
old homestead, which the family
has occupied continuously ever
Mr. FUckinger leaves a widow
and an only son, Lloyd FUckinger,
and one grandson, Alfred FUck
inger, besides three sisters Mrs.
Elizabeth Dalton, of Burns, Or.;
Mrs. Annie Brown, of Suver,
Or., and Mrs. Caroline Buchanan,
of Corvallis. J
The funeral services were di
rected by W. M. Bovee, of Cor
vallis, and the sermon delivered ,
by Rev. S. M. Woods, Evangeli
cal minister, Corvallis.
A large concourse of relatives,
friends and neighbors accom
panied the body to the Locke
Cemetery, near Corvallis, where
interment was made a short dis
tance from the place where the
wedding ceremony was per
formed, nearly 38 years ago.

point of rudeness. Among the most
silent of the world's great men were
Tennyson and Thomas Carlyle.
Bringing cases down to today. Sir
James Barrie has exalted saying noth
ing Into a fine art. So, too, has Thomas
Hardy. I reckon someone with a nose
for statistics Is going to start a list
to prove the contrary can be true,
heading it with Roosevelt,- but the fact
remains that genius oftenest goes hand
in hand with reticence.
Talking; for Print Scorned.
Which Is another reason . for my
knowing that. Laura Jafie Starcher is
a genius. She simply will not talk for
print. Charming and adorably femi
nine is she, gowned and booted and
hatted smartly and carrying . a huge
muff of silver fox, with her saucy
chin half burled in a gorgeous fu
the brother to the muff Mrs. Starcher
looks more as if rhe's Just been to a
bridge-luncheon than pounding

"It can't be done," I whispered to
myself, "or at least it Isn't according
to Hoyle for any woman to be so good
looking and attractive and- also have
No Pre-Electlon Promises Made.
But Mrs. Starcher has all these, and
is, besides, alert and nimble of wit,
and as subtle as the w. k. Sphinx. She
looks unutterable sentences with her
keen, laughing gray eyes, but she's
a born diplomat.
I can readily believe her when she
told me she made no pre-election prom
ises, nor has she listened . to any
behind-the-Talm whispering since she
took the chair.
About that chair. It must be dolly
size, for the Umatilla Mayoress is only
five feet (two, dainty and petite. She
stopped In Portland a day or so, leav
ing Umatilla and the Job of running the
city -to the president of the Council,
Mrs. Anna Means. Today she leaves
for Southern California, after a visit
in Sacramento with Mr. Starcher's peo
ple." Husband Not Submerged, KIther. .
Oh, yes, there's a Mr. Starcher. and
he will never be known as one of the
band of unknown husbands of well
known wives, for he has an individual
ity of his own. Mr. Starcher was
Mayor of Umatilla for two years, until
his own little wife decided to run
against him last Fall.
"I'd never have run if I hadn't been
sure .I'd get elected," she said naively,
"I never could bear to be beaten at
She was elected, and"with her four
Councllwomen, one woman Recorder
and a woman Treasurer. The work
piled up. there was lots to do, and Mrs.
Means didn't mind looking after the
Job for awhile, so the woman Mayor
packed her trunk and Is off to Califor
nia for a vacation.
Mrs. Starcher Intensely Domestic.
L She believes firmly in the home and
what it stands for but believes, too.
that a woman can be even a better pol
itician for being a good wife and
mother. Mrs. Starcher espouses partic
ularly the cause of working women,
and reads omnivorously of publications
along this line. She is intensely domes
tic, and an outdoor spirit. She has a
riding horse, and drives her own car,
"but I love my horse best." she admit
ted. The motto she has pasted In her
hat is "Clean Politics." "When I can't
keep the politics clean in my own lit
tle bailiwick I'll resign," she said.
Mrs. Starcher is tremendously in sym
pathy with women in suffrage and in
politics, but she does not approve of
verbal fireworks or brass bandish
Advice Given to Plcketera.
"I always have wanted to advise
those women who did picketing duty
at the White House to go on home and
get warm. If they'd do that, and then
stay away from the White House they'd
help their cause more. They can't get
the President Interested Just by hang
ing around his front gate. Votes for
women cannot come in a day, or a
month, nor even a year. It takes time
to convince certain thick-headed ones
that suffrage and women rn politics is
right and desirable, and to secure the
enactment of laws giving the ballot to
women. I think the amiable picket
workers should do their work, cleverly
and quietly, around the halls In which
the Representatives meet. Men do not
like cymbals and loud crashes of opin
ion they'd rather have it fed to them
quietly on bits of sugar."
Didn't I tell you' the lady Mayor is

EARLY START IS DESIRED
Promoter Anxious to Have Financial
Details Complied With, as He
' Points to Danger Always Apt to -Occur
in Big Undertaking. -:.
Delays ' at Klamath Falls, ' Bend.
Lakevlew and other communities In
discharging details .coincidental with
the-construction of the Central Oregon
Railway project have deferred for sev
eral weeks the Inauguration of the
campaign in Portland for aiding he
capitalization of tne unaeriaaing.
Robert E. 'Strahorn. at the head of
the project, is now in California, and
until his return to Portland the Port
land-railway committee will not start
woK. Committee meetings have been
held, however, and details of the prog
ress thus far made have Been cnecaea
up. With .very forward step the com
mittee is more sanguine of ultimate
success and confident of the benefits
that wlli accrue to Oregon as a Whole
and Portland In particular from Khe
construction of the railway. .
Mr. Strahorn has advised his Port
land office and the committee mem-
bers that it would not be consistent
to start the Portland campaign asking
ror financial aia unu,
munltles. which had already assumea i
certain" responsibilities, had discharged
them. That these responsibilities wm
be met satisfactorily in a short time
is almost certain, because of the pop
ular interest in getting a railroad
through Central Oregon, but until that
assurance Is patent Mr. Strahorn pre
fers to hold off the roruana cam
paign. . -
Programme to Be Carried Out.
"It has been understood all along
that the surveys, rights of way, ter
minals and franchises and practically
all other assistance asked for in the
Central Oregon field would be ar
ranged before Portland would be asked
for its contribution. ' Mr. Strahorn ad
vised the local office.
Mr. Strahorn and tne otner memoers
of the committee hope and believe these
matters will be arranged in the early
future, as the latest advice from the
respective communities . referred to so
indicate." There Is-no lack of apprecU
ation of the work being done by a few
public-spirited citizens in every com-
munity affected. This is especially true
of Klamath Falls, where great sacrl
ces have been made and efforts devoted
to Insuring the beginning of construc-tion-at
that end this Spring.
I The organization, surveys, estimates
and many other details of Mr. Stra
horn's work are complete, ready for
construction, and a large amount of
valuable property acquired. He Is still
hopeful of the early financing of the
project after Oregon interests do their
full part, but as he expresses it, his
handi are now tied until those who are
to be the chief beneficiaries of the work
put him in possession of the remain
der of the property and other assets
and rights upon which to build.
He mentions another serious draw
back constantly arising and which it
seems impossible to eliminate. This is
the repeated reports of, his alignment
with some one of the Ave railways
whose stub ends his proposed Oregon,
California & Eastern Rpliroad Is to con
nect. First it is the Union Pacific, then
the Hill lines, then the Western Pacific,
and so on. ".- reliance upon this sort
of thing is fatal," says Mr. Strahorn.
"We will na-er get anywhere with the
project so long as such mistaken no
tions are entertained by any consider
able number who should have their
coats off and be straining every nerve
and resource to pull this enterprise
"The whole matter is Just where it
was in the start absolutely Indepen
dent and it could not succeed if it
were attempted in any other way. With
all the thought and strenuous effort I
have centered upon it for two years. I
"fall to discover any other way to
finance it than I announced in the
beginning. That is, for those most in
terested to furnish the rights of way,
station grounds, terminals, franchises,
etc., upon the surveys and plans 1
furnish and subscribe 25 per cent of
the cash necessary to construct and
equip the system, all of which, added
to my outlays and work, to be used as
a basis upon which to finance the
other T5 per cent. We now have well
organized and a businesslike start
made on a splendid railway project,
promising the greatest benefits to Ore
gon and neighboring states of any
since then completion of the trans-continental
lies. It only awaits the all-together
pull which I hope will come
quickly because we can never tell what
may happen to delay or' defeat a de
velopment of such magnitude."
