SUES THE WORLD'S FAIR BOARD
, Senator W. F. Matlock and hia asso
ciates on the world's fair commission
have been proceeded against and must
appear in court. This action was began
by John W. McGinn, attorney for Miss
Maud Allen, daughter of E.'W. Allen,
who filed a petition for the issuance of a
writ of mandamus to compel tne execu
' tive committee of the world's fair com
mission, consisting of George T. Myers,
W. F. Matlock and George W. McBride,
to set aside an audit made by them and
make a new audit. According to the
rules of the commission the heads of the
various departments at the fair were
authorized to employ assistants whose
compensation should not exceed $5 a
day. Mrs. E. W. Allen, the head of the
woman's department, employed her
daughter, Miss Maud Allen, as assistant,
fixing her compensation at $5 per day.
Under the rules no money could be paid
out of the appropriation without a re
quisition from the head of a department,
accompanied by a voucher. Miss Allen's
salary for August and September, 1893,
amounted to $305, for which proper
vouchers were made and sent to the ex
ecutive committee. The body cut the
total amount down to $122. The plain
tiff avers that the defendants cut the
claim arbitrarily and without authority,
and asks that a new audit be made ac
cording to law. La Grande Chronicle.
It will be seen from the above that Che
hope of purifying politics by giving
women a vote.is liable to prove delusive.
Men are corrupt, more or less dishonest,
(principally more) and given to many
kinds of meannesses, ' but whenever
lovely woman Las had an opportunity
offered ber to measure her talents along
side those of her bearded brother the
latter has nothing to boast of in his favor.
- Mrs. Allen was the head of the
woman's department and employed her
daughter Maud, as assistant ; not because
it was a snap for Maudy; not because
that young lady could lay loving hands
on the goddess of liberty as shown on
the "almighty dollar," with gentler
touch and the more lasting good of the
family of Aliens ; not for any personal or
family reason ; not for nepotism or any
thing of that kind. Oh! no. But the
commission having recognized Mrs.
Allen's peculiar fitness for the head of
the department, it was quite natural on
the doctrine of heredity, that the same
traits of character should have been in
herited by the daughter and thus she
would make the most perfect assistant.
Then too, the commission authorized
Mrs. Allen to fix the salary of her a'ssiBt
ant at not exceeding $5 per day. It was
quite a coincidence that it took just the
mam to secure Miss Maud's services, and
the agreement was made between
mother and daughter with as much bus
iness acumen as if it were between father
and son. It is plain, however, that
Miss Maud should be paid, just as plain
as it is that women will not purify poli
tics, but politics will cause women to
how those trait of character which cir
cumstances, not having called ''out, we
are prone to believe she is not pos
The school book question continues to
be discussed at length. Some of the at
tacks upon the present system of books
are really amusing, and make at least
interesting reading. That the language
Beries in use should be changed seems
to be pretty generally conceded. ' Out
side of that we still insist the senti
ment of the teachers of the state is prac
tically unanimous in favor of retaining
the present system. We admire the
progressive teacher and progressive ideas
bo long as they progress forward, but
that admiration ceases when like the
the spirits at a seance, their progress
has reached a point where they
no longer use good English. The old
books were thumbed by Webster, and
before our most recent craze for progress
the teachers who now have charge of the
schools, themselves learned from the old
books. If they are examples of the re
sults of old methods and old books, then
from our acquaintance with them we
would say let the old books and the old
It is only six years since the present
school books were selected, and if the
school superintendents then made so
poor a selection as some would have ns
believe, they should not be trusted to

iSr to be hoped now that the libations
have been poured, that the old-time
jealousies and bickerings between the
metropolis that is and the metropolis

J. E. Overton, the man who disap
peared suddenly from Portland last fall,
and who was for a time supposed to be
murdered, is again home. Overton who
owns a farm near Gresham, on the
Sandy, had an idea' that he could skip,
lie low for awhile and then return, was
not calculating on an action for damages
on the part of an injured female, and
the attachment of his ranch for its full
value. When he learned that his prop
erty was liable to be lost, he came back
from the Sandwich islands to defend it.

years' standing. Used three bottles of
Electric Bitters and seven boxes of
