ADVERTISE THE FAIR.
The people of Clatsop county, who contributed
420,000 to the Lewis and Clark fair appropriation;
will not be at all pleased with the manner in which
the Lewis and Clark fair is being advertised. As
torians returning from St. Louis say that one must
liant around for hours for any placard calling atten
tion to the Oregon fair, and that the advertising
which is being done is totally inadequate.
The board of directors of the Lewis and Clark
fair should look into this matter. A very consid
erable appropriation was made for advertising pur
poses, but it is evident that it is being improperly
expended. The St Louis fair affords magnificent
pportunities to advertise the Portland fair, and the
gentlemen in charge of this department ought to be
ttqnired to do their duty properly.
Oregonians say that they are ashamed to acknowl
edge that they are from this state when visiting at
St Louis. Oregon's exhibit is really a disgrace. An
instance of the careless manner of making the ex
Ubit was stated a few days ago. Before the St.
Louis fair was opened a mammoth timber was cut at
the Home mill here for exhibition at the world's
lair. That timber is now lying in the rear of the
Oregon building, and when a party pf Astorians re
cently hunted up the specimen they found it covered
with old sacks. It was out of the sight of those in
terested in such matters and failed miserably to
rave the purpose for which it was intended.
This sort of thing has gone about far enough.
Portland is using the money of the entire state for
2s fair, and the outside counties have the right to
demand that it shall be properly expended. Unless
there is no improvement in the methods employed
the legislature should be petitioned to make no fur
ther appropriation for the Lewis and Clark fair. It
s a burning shame that the money of the state;
thould be thrown away, and almost incredible that j
tiie central managing body should allow such lax
methods. The showing is one calculated to excite
doubt in the minds of the people of Oregon and tc
DENVER'S JUVENILE COURT.
Throujrh a pamphlet designed as a part of the
Denver exhibit of juvenile court work at the world's
fair and aptly entitled "The Problem of the Chil
dren," those interested in the question of the treat
ment of delinquent and incorrigible children at the
hands of the law will find a report the most cheering,
says the Call. In this resume of the fourth year of
the juvenile court's jurisdiction in Colorado's capi
tal city, written largely out of the personal experience
of the presiding magistrate, the lion. Ben B. Lind
sey, will be found detailed account of the progress
made by those devoted to the regeneration of way
ward children under Colorado's well-advised laws.
Judge- Liudsey gives the spirit of the juvenile
court's aim in a nutshell, when he says that its
efforts are not so much toward reforming as to form
ing of childish character. It is for the young in
corrigible and not against him that all efforts are
directed and the fact is early impressed upon, his
understanding. The judge himself doffs the stern
majesty of the law in dealing with juvenile cases
and brings himself down to the social level of "Boy.
ville" by entering into the story of each offender's
special wrongdoing with every show of personal in
terest and by giving advice rather than grave ad
monition. To combat the negative influence of sol
many homes too often the real cause for youthfu
delinquency the Denver juvenile court has as ad
junct special libraries and baths for all boys who
care to take advantage of them; an allied private
society obtains summer labor in the couutry for th
probationaries; offenders under arrest cannot be tak
en to jail, but are temporarily lodged in a home-like
detention house, provided by law.
Colorado has taken a long step in the right direc
tion by placing responsibility for the delinquency
in the child upon the parents and the home. By
statute it has been enacted that parents and guard
ians against whom neglect or immoral influence dis
played toward children can be proven are them
selves amenable to the law's punishments. Had we
such laws in California our own excellent juvenile
court would find its labors lightened.
