Of the Americas Park and Outdoor
Art Association Its Ob
jects and Alms.
Portland, Ore., Feb. 21, 1903.
Editor Rosebubq Pliindiaxb,
Dkab Sib : Realizing that the success
of a movement is assured when the
Press advocates it, the Women's Auxil
iary of the American Park and Outdoor
Art Association lias appointed a com
mittee for the express purpoee(of laying
its work before the newspapers of the
United States, as the surest means of
bringing its existence and aims before
There can be no doubt of the bearty
co-operation of the women of this conn-
try in oar our work when once the mat
ter Is cleat ly presented. This we beg
that you will kindly assist oa in doing
by giving a prominent place in your
columns to the Information embodied in
this letter, as well as generous space to
the general and local efforts of this pure
ly, and in the broadest sense, philan
It is our earnest wish that working
branches of the Auxiliary shall be
formed in every city, town, village and
community. No elaborate machinery is
necessary. Any little coterie of 'vomen
may form a branch, whose work and ex
ample is likely to lead to the regenera
tion of the appearace and the healthful
ness of a large area, and to the added
happiness of all the men, women, chil
dren, birds, animals and vegitation
within its linii s. This has been done
over and over again heretofore, and the
process is capable of endless repetition.
The object of the Auxiliary is"to leave
the world more beautiful than we found
it." That is to protect and develop ex
isting natural beauty everywhere, and
to create beauty to replace the natural
beauty that has been destroyed. This
work may be done in a door yard, on
school grounds, around public
buildings, factories and mills, on country
roads, in cemeteries, on bits of waste
ground anywhere, in large or small
parks, etc It may be done by merely
keeping a plot of grass neat, by plant
ing a tree, by preserving a group of
natural shrubbery from destruction by
those who do not realise its beauty and
actual value, or by undertaking to se
cure a state, county or city park or a
government reservation. No bit of out
door beauty is too small for us to recog
nize, and none too great for us to under
take to protect or to help to create.
Where there is a continuous tearing
down there must be some building up,
or, obviously, ruin will result. The
creation of even one human habitation
involves the obliteration or injnry of
some natural beauty, if it is nothing
more than an unsightly rent in the
charming green carpet nature so gener
ously spreads over her broad floors. It
not infrequently means the complete
demolition of natural plantations of
trees snd shrubs it would take many
years and considerable sums of money to
replace, and which, in many instances
might be preserved, to the direct mate
rial advantage of the owner, by a slight
alteration in the location of proposed
These questions and all others relating
to the fitting of grounds for use, are in
cluded in the teachings of the Women's
Auxiliary. In fact, to be a workisg"
member of this organization means a
liberal education in outdoor art; the
one art in which the whole world has an
active, personal interest the only one
which affects everybody. We feel that
in asking you to give publicity to the
aims of the Auxiliary, we are only call'
ing your attention to a question of vital
interest to every community ; to a pub-
lie spirited measure which must appeal
to all classes of readers and residenss.

Governor's Veto of Bill Establishing a Sammer Normal
i at Newport not Sustained.
Sauif, Or., Feb. 20. Governor Cham
berlain this morning vetoed the bill in
troduced by Jones of Lincoln and passed
by both houses for a state Bummer nor
mal school at Newport. In his message
explaining his veto, the Governor says
that in his message he suggested the
proprioty of reducing to two the number
of normal schools.' Bat instead of fol
lowing this suggesting, the Legislature
proposed to add to the burden of taxa
tion another normal. Concluding, he
said: "It looks as though it was in
tended for a Summer excursion rather
than for any ultimate good the people of
the State would derive therefrom."
The House refused to pass the bill
over the veto of the Governor.
Eauut, Or., Feb. 20. On motion, the
House reconsidered its action in refusing
to pass the Newport State Summer Nor
mal School over the veto of the Govern
or. l be question again being up as to
whether the bill should pass over the
veto of the Governor, a number of
speeches were made by Republican
members, urging that the bill should be
passed over the veto. By a vote of 40
to 20, the bill was passed. Burleigh,
Democrat, voted for the bill.
. Salem, Or., Feb. 20. The house ex-1
pressed itself in favor of a flat salary for
the State Printer by passing Senator
Miller's bill to place that official on a
fiat salary of (3500 after 1903. .
Orton wanted to know what the state
would do for a printing plant. "Private
people own the present plant, and if you
put your State Printer on a salary he
will be here without tools to do the
work.. The logical thing would be to ap
propriate (40,000 for a printing plant."
"Let that go until the next session,"
said Bilyeu, and so the House decided.
KO STATS ZXAXDISX.
Senator Booth's bill for an act crea
ting the office of state examiner of pub
lie officers and public offices, allowing
that officer a salary of 2400 a year and
11500 for clerical aid. was brought to a
sudden standstill when it reached the
House. In committee of the whole the
provisions of the bill were adapted with
amendmens, and on the final vote it
was defeated. Then a motion to recon
sider was made and this, too, received
no support, so the measure may be said
to be permanently buried. ,
The bill was supposed to appoint an
officer who would do the work of the
various committees appointed ' by the
Legislature at every session to examine
into the accounts and affairs of the va
rious state and charitable ' institutions,
and it was claimed that this would do
away with considerable expense.
THXATSBS ZXXXPT. '
Theaters will be exempt from the gen
eral Sunday closing law, according to
the vote taken by the House on Senate
bill No. 123. This bill was introduced
by Sweek and amends the existing law
in regard to theaters only.
Silxx, Or., Feb. 20 Advocates of
Booth's forestry commission bill and of
overriding the Governor's veto thereon
lacked five of having enough votes to ac
complish the latter purpose in the Sen
ate yesterday afternoon, and the veto
was sustained. There were IS ayes, 13
noes and two absent, Marsters and
Booth opened the debate on the ques
tion ot sustaining the veto. He did not
wish to urge upon the Senators the over
riding of this vote, he said, but he did
desire to make an explanation of the
matter, to the end that all Senators
should understand it, and so that all
might share the responsibility of what
ever was done. The menace of forest
fires was a terrible one. Not only the
safety of the forest themselves was
threatened, but the safety of farms and
of people on the farm also. Timber was
the greatest natural resource of the state.
When timber was destroyed the loss to
the timber owners and the manufactur
ers, while great, was not so great as the
loss to the people in general. In proof
of this he would cite that in Oregon last
year $30,000,000 worth of lumber was
sold, at an average price of f 10 a thou
sand. Of this price the timber owner
and the manufacturer cleared but f 1.50
a thousand, the balance, 3.50 a thou
sand, being paid out for labor. This
showed the vast benefit to the people of
the timber and lumber industry.
Objection might be taken to the bill on
the ground of the cost to the state of
carrying out its provisions, but he
thought the cost would not be so great
as had been assumed by the- Governor
and others. Perhaps, too, the bill con
tained errors, but why not try it, and if
it should prove faulty then amend it at
the next session
Sale , Or., Feb. 20. The bill report
ed favorably by the committee on mines
and passed by the Senate, for a bureau
of mines, caused, a debate of over an
hour in the House this merning, finally
resulting in the defeat of Hawkins'
motion to indefinitely postpone, and the
passage of the bill. For a time it looked
if the bill would be defeated, but
some earnest addresses by tteaulon,
Bobbins, Phelps, Hale, Malarkey, Eeed
and Davey brought the bill from defeat
to victory, the final vote being 40 to 20.
As the bill carried an appropriation of
$20,000 for maintaining the bureau and
pay in the salary of the Commissioner
of Mines, the House was obliged to go
into committee of the whole. After dis
cussing several of the paragraphs, Kay
moved that the committee of the whole
arise and report without recommenda-
in. The motion was carried, and the
report was made. Hawkins moved an
indefinite postponement, and the debate
was started. The final result was as
stated above, the motion to indefinitely
poet pone being voted down and the
measur ebeing passed.

. Last Thursday afternoon the Senate
sustained the Governor's veto of Sena
tor Booth's bill for protection of the for
ests after a lively debate. The veto,
which has joet been sustained, was ac
companied by the following message :
"I return you herewith Senate Bill
No. 50, with my dissent.
"The bill purports to be for the pro
tection of forest and timber of the state
against forest fires. Its object is worthy,
but I cannot give my assent to the meas
ure before me, for many reasons, two of
which I will now consider.
"First, it appropriates 500 a year for
the purpose of carrying out the provi
sions of the act, but while this appro
priation is made the bill by . its very
terms authorizes the creation of claims
against the state and the several coun
ties which may reach as much as 1-50,000
or more in one year, for which deficiency
appropriation would have to be made at
the next sesaion of the Legislature, to
cover the state's portion thereof. The
fiie commissioners named in the act are
authorized to appoint at least one per
son in each county of the state as fire
warden they may appoint more. , Say
that they do appoint two in each county.
The salary for each is not to exceed 300;
66 fire wardens at 300 is 119,800 a year.
"The fire wardens in each county, at
the request of the commission, have
power to nominate with the approval of
the commission, five rangers, whose
salaries are to be paid by the counties,
and are not to exceed (2 a day while em
ployed in actual service. The secretary
of the commission is to receive 5 a day
for the time actually employed by him,
and he, together with each of the com
missioners, receives mileage at the rate
of 5 cents a mile for the distance actual
ly traveled in performance of duty.
"It is safe to say that there will be
applications filed with the commission
to appoint men to the full limit of their
power of appointment, and the expense
in the very nature of things, is bound
to be large, however capable and honeet
the commission may be. A large in
debtedness will surely be created against
the state and numerous claims against
several counties. Protection of the tim
ber interests of the state may justify this
expense, but it seems to me that the
bill itself ex vi tenni should limit the
amountof moneys which the commis
sion ahall expend, and an appropriation
be made therefor.
"Second, another objection is the tact
that the Legislature undertakes to de
prive the Executive of the state of the
power given him by the constitution.
It will be noticed that this act names
the five commissioners, who are to hold
their offices for four years, after which
the Executive is to appoint admission
on the face of the act that the Execu
tive is the proper person to appoint the
commissioners, and not in the Legisla
"For the reasons stated. I return the
bid with my veto.

That man is doomed to a narrow space
in life who insists on doing everything
for himself. The old adage, thongh true
in a sense, is a dangerous one to follow
indefinitely. It counsels a man, if he
would have a thing well done, to do it
himself. No advice could be more fatal,
if absolutely followed, to large success.
The man who succeeds in a large way
directs others. The world is made up
of two great classes of people ; those who
lead, and those who follow. The man
who leads is the man of large successes.
He is the one who plans, who organizes,
who invents new ways and means, and
who secures others to carry his ideas
into execution. In brief, he is the one
who can set a score or a hundred people
to work, and can with ease keep them
going so tbat all shall be busy, and so
that none shall conflict with another
It is a very easy habit to fall Into
that of by slow degrees killing one's nat
ural executive capacity. Large minded
people invariably like to see work done
well, and as they are naturally more
quickly efficient than people ol mediocre
gifts, the temptation is to do a piece of
werk oneself rather than bother to train
lime one else to do it less satisfactorily.
Bat one should remember that when he
does this, he is making two mistakes :
he is robbing the man of smaller calibre
of the task that he could in tine thor
oughly master ; and he is killing out his
own natural capacity for leadership.
mere are, ol course, people wno are
not fitted for leadership, at least in any
large way. But no young man should
ever settle himself down to the convic
tion that he was not born to lead, until
he has made the trial and signally
failed ; signally failed because he had
not the qualities of leadership, because
failure sometimes results, on account of
strong adverse circumstances. There
are many qualities that a successful
leader must have, and it is not a diffi
cult matter for any person to determine
whether or not he has these gifts. The
most successful leaders are men like Na
poleon, who have an almost unshakable
confidence In themselves and in their
Inherent good fortune ; and men who
have strong personal magnetism which
exerts itself over every one with whom
they come in contact, With a personal
ity like Napoleon's to direct, tremendous
masses of men can be made to act as a
unit. The cohesive force, or as the phy
siciet would say, the attraction of cohe
sion, is so strong between the leader and
the followers, and because of the superb
power of - the leader, between the indi
vidual units, that the combined force of
all becomes almost irresistible. The
French people, as a nation, are impul
sire, good for a dash, but not good for a
long pull ; they are excitable and easily
aroused to antagonisms against each
other : they are impatient of direction
for long periods of time, and they are
apparently as a rule incapable of any
deep sense ol devotion. They are, in
fact, such a people as one would deem
to le beyond leadership on any exten
sive scale. - And yet witness the fact.
Napoleon held the wishes and wills of
bis vast armies, as it were, in the hollow
of his hand. And on great and extreme
occasions, at least once or twice, he did
ith safety and success what perhaps
o other military leader ever dared to
do before he acquainted his entire force
with the method of attack in full.
But there are other qualities of lead
ership necessary where one with execlu
ire ability is not enljwal with Napo-
teon's great power. To be a good lead
er, a man must be essentially practical.
He must as by instict conceive plans
that are capable of being executed, and
that involve a saving of time and force,
this, for two reasons : Because he must
be abl e to show great results, and be
cause he must inspire and hold the con-
dence of hi s followers. It must be nat
ural for him to command ; he must have
ths commanding manner, or seem to
command as by right. Not that he
must necessarily be stern or forbidding
in manner. There are many ways of
commanding. There is the taciturn
commander and the genial one. One
commands by fear; the other by love.
Of course, the one who commands by
love will aim ays reap the richest results
the end, because his subordinate
will work with an enthusiasm, a joy
and a seat that make them quita invinc
ible. Yet the one who so commands
must also be keen. He must be capa
ble of a splendid righteous indignation
when occasion requires. He must be as
keen and firm in his opposition to trick
ery and dissimulation, as he is generous
in his appreciation of truth. '
' lie mast have quick perceptions so
that he can seize another's idea at once ;
and he must have quick intuitions so
that he can understand those under
him. And he ought to know by actual
experience what a full day's labor
means, so that he may be above decep
tion, and accessible to sympatny. And
above all, he must be possessed ot an
open mind. That is, ho should not be
settled in the false notion that he is of
the salt of the earth and goodness shall
die with hiai j that his ideas are tbe
only ones of value. A leader some Limes
baa a genius working under him, and he
ought to be discerning and frank minded
enough to discover it.
A man who hates details is apt to be
the boat leader, because then he natur
ally shuns the duties that do not belong

to him. The man who is good in details
should always be a follower, except in
those exceptional, almost impossible
cases where he has both capacities
highly developed. A good leader should
also be a man of large hope. Hope it is
that enables bim to tread fearlessly the
new paths that his keen intellect out
lines. A good leader must possess all
ot these qualities, although a mediocre
leader on a small scale may be endowed
only with a keen, practical Intel! gene
and the power to command.
Every young man should remember
that he is put here to make the most of
the abilities that have been given him,
and that he should be ever reaching out
to fill a larger field than the one he oc
cupies at present. But if he possesses
large executive ability, he may know at
onee that with proper effort on his part,
a worthy position in lite will be assured
Probably no man with large gifts of
this order ever made a more inauspi
cious beginning than did I'resident
Grant.- After he had graduated with
honors from West- Point, he not only
failed id securing any suitable military
appointment, but also as a business
man he proved a distinct failure. Even
when the war came on, and the nation
was in crying need of superior leaders,
Grant was slow ia getting a foothold.
And when he finally did secure a com
mand, some one of inferior ability was
put in and he in a sense demoted. Un
til almost the close of his military ca
reer, fortune seemed to confer her hon
ors upon him grudgingly, and it was
only ths last great chapter in his war
experiences that put his ability as a
great leader beyond question. It would
be a good tiling for a young man who
has fai-h , in himself to remember
Grant's battlo with fate when things
looked blackest to him. He must have
bod unquestioned confidence in his own
abilities to so pe:sist in Bite of opposition.
