On May 1, 10, there were 1SI mem

The members say they have never
fared better than they are doing now
and that they have "the best soldiers'

Thla happy condition haa been brought

the reelection of Governor' Chamber

paased on the other side of the coffin
looking at the deceased. Nothing es

For a moment the foremost gased with
aorrow, but her sorrow turned to as

to aeveral expressions.

submit his name to the committee In
charge of the Carnegie hero fund, .: They
believe that hs will be awarded a medal
for. a daring example of bravery that
haa eacaped recognition of any kind.
. Morrow waa visiting at Long Beach
on the fatal Easter, morning when' nine
men' want out to aea In an Improvised
boat. They were unaccustomed, to the
breakers, and did not know tha dangers
of the surf, though they were warned
to return on the. third breaker with the
stern of their boat -towards tha ahore.
and with a drag in tow.
.Young Morrow la a member of. the
junior class in the medical department
of the. University of Oregon and la
expert awlmmer. He was at one time
an Instructor In swimming In this city,
tit met tne party or nine on the night
before 1 Easter and waa to have gone
with them -on the fishing expedition
but her overslept.
When the boat capslsed. Morrow, w!MI
crowds of others, gathered on the ahore
and saw the men. struggling In-the
water. Seven of them succeeded In
reaching .the ahore. Colonel De Long
and Charles Ray - were drowned and
their bodies ware recovered by Morrow.
, "We took a position: on .an elevation
near the ahore and by the aid of glasses
could see the men struggling . about a
mile and a quarter out. in the ocean,"

sight. ,-1 went through - the - huge

"I succeeded ' In bringing the body
ashore, but he was dead when we got
there and I think he must have been
dead when I found him. A couple of
houra later we again caught sight of the
other body and I went out for it. I
found Ray about a mile and a quarter
from the ahore and also brought him In.
He waa not dead when we reached
shore and would not have died. I think,
but for the frantic efforts of several
women Wa - laid - Mra. on., the ground

him. - I Injected a . number of druga

hotel, but urged them to keep. up their

that the only hope was to work as
rapidly aa possible right there on the
bank. - I had not gone far before I
turned around to look. I-eaw the crowd
carrying the man to the hotel and when
they reached there he waa dead.
The feat accomplished by Morrow is
said to have been one of the most .re
markable on record. Few men are able
to swim even a short distance when the
aurf la running and the breakers are
