Child Wire of India, All Under Nine Tears of Age,
Mrs. E. C Avatoom of Calcutta la a
. truest at the horn of Mrs. H. W. 8ton.
lira. Avetoom la the wife of a prominent
barrister of Calcutta, bat so deeply has
' aha been Interested In tbo pitiable condi
tion of the Hlndoe women that ah haa
devoted' much of her time to their help.
; With Mrs. Sukhoda Banarjee she con
ducts a school In Calcutta for rescue
work amour children. Hera they re
ceive as many aa possible of the (Iris
. who have lost caste at their homea and
so are left adrift on the world..
Mrs. Avetoom 'came over? on . tht
steamer Mongolia, which went ashore
on the coast of the Inland aea near Kobe
harbor. She describes the incident aa
thrilling and dangerous. The vessel
' was lilted at an ancle of 46 degrees
whera tt hung on a reef. Many of the
peopta left the boat In . launches and
went by train the rest of the way, re
fusing to reman with the vessel, which
hung there for 18 hours., . '
Widow Sevan Tears Old.'
Mrs. Avetoon desires to thank the
. press for ita work in behalf of , Mrs.
Banarjee when she was here, which as
. alsted materially In her endeavor - to
, raise funds for the school In Calcutta.
The little Hindoo woman -treasures care
fully the clippings about her and her
work and often shows them io visitors.
Mrs. Banarjee, it will be remembered,
was a high caste Hindoo woman who
had lost caste and was a grandmother
in her early twenties. It is for women
in her position that the Calcutta school
is conducted and It la through her own
misfortunes that she is able to reach
her pupils ao well. 8he waa married at

the achooL Over that age they must
tie coaxed and after the experiences
they nave had this ia a difficult task,
fov they mistrust the Christiana
There are now 60 pupils In the school
and thae will in time become teachers
and missionaries against . the evils of
child marriage. Missionaries tre well
received in India, but the native eon-
verts are received . with coldness. The
Hindoos are more placable than ' the
Monammedans. - ' ',,.,.

Governor : Chamberlain Selects
Members of Board of Port

had resolved to put in the ratea May
zo and II whether the other tranacon
tlnental llnaa agred or not. and were
beforehand with an application to tha
interstate commerce commlaelon.
Tha Paclflo northwest exouralon
party, organised by Philip A. Batea, to
go to Jamestown, had arranged for
transportation via tha Northern Pacl
flo and Canadian Pacific. On aolnr to
the Northern - Paoifle ticket office
to purchase ' their ticketa they could
not eecure them, and arera obliged, to
go via tha Union Paclflo. ;
Tha Port of Columbia law will go
Into effect on Friday next and at that
time Governor Chamberlain will appoint
tha Board pf. Port of Columbia Com
mtssloners aa provided by the law. Im
mediately following their appointment a
temporary organisation will ba affected
and a ault will be begun by the oooosl
tlon to the law at, Astoria to determine
Its constitutionality. " - v
Tha Board of Commissioners will ba
oomposed of tha following men: Dr. An
drew C Smith, R. D. Inmaa and J. C
Alnsworth of Portland, representing
Multnomah county; W. D. Plus of Co
lumbia City, representing Columbia
county., and Samuel H. Elmore of As
toria, representing Clatsop county. "
There haa been much contention over
tha Port of Columbia law dating from
the time the bill waa Introduced In:
tha last legislature through tha atruggle
to enact It and up to the present time.
It ia contended by the opponents of the
measure that It la unconstitutional and
that It la unjust since It levies a tax
upon Columbia and Clatsop counties out
of proportion to any beneflta to ba de
rived from tha operation of the law
Tha anlt to solve tha question of the
legality of tha law will be commenced
by Frank J. Taylor of Astoria and wilt
