Paclf ie and ' other Gould lines to the
east on iron and steel articles. In order
that the Colorado company might In
vade territory aa far east as Chicago.
Thia rate, applied only to east bound

To large degree ths effectiveness of

the third annual meeting of the Oregon
Prisoners' Aid society Wedneeday even
ing in Unitarian, chapel. Recently It was
discovered that the law creating the
court waa defective in several partlculara.
There la no provision for paid officers to
execute the orders of the .court. .As ths
law stands, tha Judge must depend on
voluntary service by officers whom' he
might appoint. - It la thought that, were
thla defect cured, tba court might be
organised In a manner to approximate
the efficiency contemplated by the trant
ers or tae statute. .. ,
Partial assurances have been " given
that prevision will be made to pay the
officers from funds subscribed by cltl
