prominent educator of Portland. The
dsy sessions, or Institos session proper,
were held in the aaweroui hall of the
Cublio school, and the sealing capacity
ad to be supplemented by the addition
ol many chair. State Superintendent
O. M. Irwin was present the first two
days, taking part. Ihepouiiu meeting
were held lo the court Louse, and the
interest taken by the people generally in
school work filled the court room each
At the public meetings Superintendent
Walls presided and they were opened in
each instance with selection by the
Koeeburg orchestra, and It appeared that
they put their best foot forward, for the
elections were excellent and the execu
tion splendid, eliciting merited applause.
At Thursday's meeting, Miss Habi
Gordon sang a solo very swsetly, and
wai accompanied on the piano by Mis
Mabel Van Huren. The address of wel
come was dslivered by J. B. Eddy, of
the Pi.AiMiiALca.and the response there
to was by Professor J. B. Ford of My rtls
Creek. Misses Mabel Van Buren and
Pearl Wright favored the audience with
an instrumental duet. The address of
the evening was delivered by Statp
Superintendent . M. Irwin, and a s-ilo
by Mrs. Geo. Short of Wilhur, brought
an interesting evening to a close.
On Friday evening President Chap
man, of the Stato University at iugene,
delivered an address on "higher educa
tion" and Mlsa Lena Kearney sang a
solo, accompanied by Mra. AppelhofT.
Miss Kearney is one of Roseburg'e best
singer snd her solos are highly appre
ciated. It waa only intended to have two pub
lic meetings, but the superintendent was
so aell pleased with bis success that he
added one for Batorday aud announced a
lecture by President Barxee of Draio, as
the chief feature. Miss Iula Bradley re
cited "Virirlolus" and, as an encore,
"There's Ma!" Miss Bradley is an ac
complished elocutionist and wai roundly
applauded. A few remarks were made
by Kev. Y. L. Moore. and Professor
(J rout spoke on practical education.
President Barzee was (lien Introduced
and said that owing Co the lateness of
the hcur he thought it best not to un
dertake an address at that time and ex
cused himself. This was a disappoint
ment. Miss Kearney sang another solo
accompanied by Mis Pearl Wright, and
a short address by Professor Ackerman
brought the exercises to a close. Pre
lessor Ackernian'B remaiks were to the
