N THE answer in the McArthur-

an allegation that a Portland
attorney received $15,000 for
his services as a lobbyist at the
1913 session of the Oregon legisla
ture. It is a serious charge. It can
not but direct attention of the pub
lic to reflection on what invisible
government must mean, especially
at a time when a new legislature
is to be chosen.
Late Oregon legislatures have
been great disappointments to peo

"It seems like a prayer against

It was a resolution slipped

it had passed. Its passage was not
even known to the attorney general
of the state until weeks after,

inventor has received a check, $25,
for the globe, together with a letter

the most valuable aids to the study

When so high an authority as Pro-
will write: "It seems especially neces
sary that an instrument such as yours
(the Martin celestial glob and tel- '
lurian) should b brought to the as- 1
sistance of the imaginations of stu- j
dents of geography, physical geogra- j
phy, natural science and similar sub- J
Jects," there ought to be no longer
a question of its worth, to any pub

cost ought not to bar It from any .
school room. Forty-sii of the prin
cipals of Portland's schools signed
a paper addressed to the purchasing
committee of this school district in
which they say: j
"A careful inspection of the Mar
tin celestial globe and tellurian by
ourselves and the teachers of our sev
eral schools convinces us that this
Is a meritorious apparatus, and that.
If the same be provided, we can use
them to good advantage In our ,
schools." j
Mr. Martin says: "Although we
have not as yet received an order ,
from the school board of this district,
we are told we may expect one at
any time now. This, of course, would j
be most gratifying as a home recog- j
nition of an industry which has the
national recognition we have already (
received, and as an encouragement to
one which has not asked assistance
in carrying it along to a successful
Issue. It likewise would demonstrate
the confidence reposed in us at home.
and this would be a most valuable
asset to our Institution.
"In our Judgment no more oppor
tune time could have been selected
for placing our Invention before the
educators of the nation. It la well
known that the human mind must
seek the proper base, which Is reason,
and the fundamental reasons are the
base of all sense, science and reason.

Portland, Or., May 8. Milton Reed
Klepper, Esp., chairman John C. ilc-
Cue campaign committee, Portland, Or.
My Dear Klepper I have read with
much interest, a letter bearing your
signature, shown me today, touching
my employment by Multnomah county
ln connection with the Lombard litiga
tion. Seemingly some one, taking ad
vantage of your trusting and guileless
nature, and apparent ignorance of the
facts, selected you as the "goat" to
start a foolish prevarication. Tlie rea
sons which caused the county board
to first employ me in connection with
the Lombard difficulties about six
years ago, and to continue that em
ployment from time te time thereafter
until these difficulties finally termi
nated In the spring of 1911 by foreclos
ure of the mortgage on the old county
poor farm and the reinvesting of tiUe
in the county, would hardly Interest
you ln your zealous hunt for war ma
terial. There are, however, two or
three matters which may interest you
as a lover of truth. In the. first place,
Multnomah county has not, directly or
Indirectly, paid me a dollar for any
service rendered since Mr. Evans be
came district attorney.
Again in your letter you speak of
the first suit brought to foreclose the
Lombard mortgage, dismissed in 1912.
and state that ln the stipulation for
the dismissal provision was made for
the payment o a fee of $250. and you
then add:
"It is to be presumed that the county
paid A. E. Clark the $250 attorney's
fee allowed by said stipulation."
Now, as you speak of the stipula
tion, and quota the substance ln pert,
you must have read the stipulation,
and therefore must have seen that the
fee of $250 was not to be paid by the
county, but by Mr. Lombard, and if
you examined further, as a diligent
campaign manager should, you would
have seen that he did pay it, and that
the county did not pay one cent to me.
or to anyone else, ln that suit. Strange,
that under these circumstances, you
should have put your signature to such
a foolishly false statement.
In your letter you also refer to the
second foreclosure suit (which, by the
way, resulted in the county getting
back unimpaired title to the farm, aft
er having received about $45,000 prin
cipal and interest on the purchase
price!, and you state that th,e court
found for the county for the full
amount, principal and Interest, and,
ln addition, allowed an attorney's fee
of $4500; and you state ln effect that
Multnomah county paid this amount to
me, and you then add the following:
"That Is, during the period of about
eight months, with the consent and
upon the suggestion of the said dis
trict attorney, the county of Mult
nomah paid A. E. Clark more than the
district attorney himself received as a
whole year's salary."
There was no redemption from the
sale, and the fact is as you must
know, or else someone has surely much
abused your overstrung, not to say
gullible, disposition that the county
has never paid me one dollar for the
work in that foreclosure suit, nor has
anyone else.
You have my permission to give this
letter to the press, with the one pre
pared by you; or, if you prefer, I will
be glad to do so and save you the labor.
"Stolen Ass&ts."
Berdugo. Or., May 5. To the Editor
of The Journal In a late lseue of Ths
Journal I note an editorial art'oie en
titled, "Otir Stolen Assets." Now we
naturally infer from that statement
that in the past there has been some

rightful owners? Both Repuoiicans

I favor the passage of one of the
two general water power bills now
pending in congress, namely, that one
commonly called the Ferris bill, re
lating to water power sites on public
lands. I think it is a reasonable meas
ure and have promoted and will pro
mote its passage in any way I can. It
is a fact, I think, that if passed and
the necessary rights incident to such
development put upon a definite basis
as provided in the bill, it would tend
to promote water power development.
It Is vigorously opposed, however, by
the water power promoters and their
great lobby of high class agents, which
they have maintained here for years,
so that the latter are the ones who are
blocking the legislation and consequent
water power development.
For several years there has been
pending a bill with similar provisions
relating to water powers on navigable
streams, over whfch the federal gov
ernment has Jurisdiction. 1 favor the
passage of this bill and promoted it in
every way I would, but it also was
opposed and blocked by the agents of
the water power companies and their
friends in congress. In the present
congress, however, a bill was framed
and introduced by Senator Shields of
Tennessee, embodying his views and
acceptable to the water power repre
sentatives. This bill strips the fed
eral government of all control over the
powers developed, even denies 1 fluty -thing
but a nominal consideration for
the sites granted, and cuts off entirely
any revenue to the government for the
power developed. Because I believe
that the perpetual control of the hy
droelectric power of the country em
braces such a scope of Importance as
to at once embrace the life and safety
of the nation, as well as the commer
cial welfare of no small portion of its
people, and for the further reason that
the control of this power as our mod
ern communities have come to depend
upon its utilities and conveniences,
means the control not only of the lux
uries and conveniences of our people
but of their food, their heat, their
power, their lixht. and. without exag
geration, their very life for these rea
sons, I say, I voted against, and will
continue to vote against at every op
portunity I have, a measure which
proposes to barter away for nothing
or for a mere nominal sum, and for
ever, fo private parties this control
over the nessarle8 of life. I am espe
cially determined in the matter in view
of the fact that not only Is the grant
made ln the way stated ln effect, but
that the federal government reserves
no power of regulation or control over
the use and handling of this powerful
agency as to service, rates, etc., except
to a very modified exte: t and in cer
tain cases.

There are perhaps a thousand differ
ent terms and conditions upon which
these grants could be made, all perfect
ly reasonable and acceptable; but when
we are told that if we oppose one par
ticular plan to which the water power
companies are gracious enough to give
their approval we are opposing the in
terests of the community, it does not
seem particularly logical.
There are plenty of people ready and
anxious to develop these powers under
such reasonable restrictions and terms
as referred to; in fact, there is going
on now. and has been for years, more
development of water power ln the na
tional forests all of which Is under
such restrictions and government regu
lations with some reasonable return
to the government, as mentioned
above than there has been elsewhere.
There Is another circumstance often
overlooked, and that is that a great
many of the best water powers ln the
country are already ln private hands
and are not being developed. This is
tlie case with Chelan falls In our own
state, with the essential parts of Ket

Priest rapids on the Columbia river,
which is already developed Jn part;
with Potomac falls at Washington :

has not been developed, because the j

all of these companies are under the
control of one central head and there
