'J. W. Harbert. who is associ

a sword that Is older than any

sword Is of French manufacture

ago 1t was found by an uncle of
Mr. Harbert, while strolling along
the 'coast In the Plymouth region
of Massachusetts. He noticed the
handle of the sword lust above
the sand, and curiosity impelled
him to dig It np. Mr. Harbert
Is of the opinion that with the
date of 1414 the sword must have
reached the eastern coast by
traveling by way of Iceland to
the North American shore. Any

Twenty years ago tha people of
Oregon scrapped the convention
system because of the power it
was supposed to fclve to special in
terests to manipulate it for their
own purposes, and a few years
later some excellent candidates
were defeated for high office for
the sole reason that they had been
endorsed by an "assembly." And
the conventions and assemblies
which were thus condemned were
open affairs in which every citizen
had an opportunity to participate.
