LeBreton Killed by IndLtnn
Assuming that a brief reference
to those persons who have here
tofore filled the office of secre
tary of state 13 of Interest, as well
as a statement of the functions
and duties of the office, I have
taken the liberty of prefacing this
paper with a short statement re
specting each of tbem.
George W. LeBreton served as
secretary of Oregon during tnt
three years immediately preceed
ing the organization of the pro
visional government. He waa uu.
in Massachusetts, and was. one of
Oregon's earliest pioneers. He
acted as secretary in the public
meeting held In tbe original terri
tory of Oregon, and as clerk of the
legisaltive committees of that per
iod. He may. therefore, justly be
called Oregon's first secretary.
LeBreton was killed in a battle
with the Indians at Oregon City,
March 4, 1844.
V He was succeeded by Dr. E. J.
Long, a physician, and active or
ganizer of the provisional govern
ment. Dr. Long was first1, ap
pointed, then twice elected by the
people, . He was ; drowned in the
Clackamas river, January 21,
: Tragedy Overtakes IrfR
The tnird secretary of Oregon
was Dr. Frederick I'rigg, appoint
ed, to succeed Dr. Long, and
served from June 21, 1846, to
some lime in 4 7. He had prev
iously served as a circuit judge In
Clackamas county, and as a mem
ber of . the legislature. History
records that Dr. Prigg met the
same fate as his predecessor, hav
ing been drowned in the Clacka
mas river. '
Samuel M, Holderness served as
secretary or Oregon from 1847 to
1849, being the last incumbent of
the office under the provisional
government. His name, like those
of his two immediate predecessors,'
is associated In history with the
early activities of the Oregon
City Lyceum and Literary club, a
society which had been formed
for the purpose of promoting lit
erature in the Oregon territory.
War Hero Honored

A series of tests for the swim
mers' and life savers' medals un
der the national Y. M. C. A. su
pervision, was begun at the Sa
lem Y. M. C. A. as one of the big
events for Labor day.
The complete course makes a
man show that be is a really qual
ified swimmer and life saver. The
tests are not competitive, and not
t'med. The ability to do the re
quirements, in a workmanlike
manner is the whole story. The
swimmer must be able to do al
most everything that & duck can
do, but quack, in order to quali
fy as a medal swimmer; and show
an ability to dreg even a fighting
suicide or a frantic rock-the-boat
victim who grabs h's rescuer, out
ot the water, after knocking him
cold with a solar plexus or a chin
punch, so he can't resist. Here
are the schedules, for the differ
ent events of thi complete series:
Beginner's test: Swim at least
50 feet (any stroke without
turning at end of tank). Award:
Oxidized silver finish button.
Swimmers' te?t: Swim 50 yards
(any stroke); dive properly trom
side of pool; swim on back 50
feet. Award: French gray finish
Leader's test: (1) Teach one
person to swim f-0 feet; (2) swim
200 yards; (3) dive from surface
of water and bring objects from
bottom (opening eyes) ; (4) swim
on back 50 yards. Award: Ro
man gold finish button.
Life saver's test: (1) Dive into
from seven to 10 feet of water
and bring from the bottom to the
surface a loose bag of sand weigh
ing 10 pounds; (2) swim 100
vards on back, not using arms or
hands, and 100 yards any other
Ftroke; (3) demonstrate (a) on
land. five methods of release;
(b) in water two methods of re
lease; (c) rescue and tow person
ot own weight 20 yards, using
two different strokes (10 yards
each); (d) Shaefer method of re
suscitation. Award: sterling sil
ver watch fob, very neat and dur
able. Several of tha local Y. M. C. A.
boys passed the twimmers' tests
of swimming the four lengths of
the tank (50 yards) one and one-)
half lengths of tbe tank (60 feet)
on back, and r.ne shallow dive.
Those who qualified thus far,
were Jack Harbison, Glen Seeley,

"The conditions fot August
were rather tryiug.V? aid Mr,
Stauff. " ThefA was tt hn( von-
ther, and the flies, and the short
pasture. 'But.frora the start al
ready made in September, we ex
pect this month to come back up,
and make tho record already
made, even more remarkable. Jt
certainly stands , aa a t record for
the Jersey breed. If not for alt
breeds, for a similar j herd tor
similar length of time: It I
showing an average butterfat pro
duction of . close to 800 pounds a
year, if it should be kept up for
full year. And when one gets
to talking 'averages', that's very
different from tak'ng one or. two
