ORGANIZE FOR THE 1934 CENTENARY
A general committee ought to be at work now preparing
for the centenary celebration of the coming of the mission
aries to the Oregon Country v
For the six years to 1934 will soon pass
And there wiil be a vast amount of work to be done in
preparing for the kind of a celebration the great event war
rants; great in its influence upon the events that followed
The faithful little band headed by Jason Lee left for the
jQregon Country in April; arrived at Fort Hail in July;
reached Vancouver the middle of September, then came up
the Willamette river and began building the first log houses
on Mission Bottom below Salem in October
And began teaching the Indians in November; all in the
s eventful year of 1834. The centenary celebration of these
events is to be held in 1934.
The general committee that should be at work now ought
to represent the various conferences of the Methodist
church; those of all the territory that was in 1834 the Ore
gon Country from the crest of the Rockies to the Pacific
and from the Canadian to the California line
And it should represent the great Methodist church as a
whole, for all Methodism is interested in the epochal events
of 1834 and the results of the work of that period
And Salem and Champoeg and the state of Oregon as a
whole ought to be represented. And Willamette university
and Kimball college. - -
The Oregon Methodist conference at its session in Salem
last year took some prelimini.ry steps looking to the cen
tinary celebration. It is time to follow these up.
Some funds ought to be provided. There should be some
thing to work with. Subscription lists in Salem could be so
arranged as to receive small general (or large) contributions
If all who ought to be interested would each give a very
small sum, there would be something to work with. To pay
postage. To provide stationery. To give a habitation and
a home and a name, or at least a tentative name, to the
epochal celebration that is to be held here.
Some help might thus be given, its needed, to the effort
in congress to secure the $300,000 asked for a memorial
building at Champoeg park
Perhaps some help to the movement for a highway be
tween Portland and Salem by way of Champoeg.
These things all go together in the making of the histori
cal setting, worthy of attracting the interest of all the world.
A pageant should be prepared. This will take time. There
should be other memorial buildings in Salem, to keep alive
the epochal things that happened in the laying of the foun
dations of this state and in placing the Oregon Country
under the Stars and Stripes.

The New England people interested in the maple sugar
industry are asking for a 50 per cent increase in the pro
tective tariff duty on foreign importations competing with
their products. In January 714,357 pounds of maple sugar
from Canada were entered in the customs district of Ver
mont, paying a duty of $28,574.52 and making that the lead
ing revenue producer for the district. Under the present
tariff law the import duty on maple sugar is 4 cents a pound,
regardless of quality, and this permits the bringing in of
a grade of Canadian sugar which can be put on the market
at a price that it is hard for the Vermont and other New
England producers to meet. An investigation of the relative
production costs of maple sugar and syrup in the United
States and Canada is now being conducted by the United
States tariff commission for the purpose of enabling the
president to decide whether the duty shall be increased.

of all these friends, and the gen

raising of a goodly sum' for a

boys themselves have worked un-
flaggingly in the preparation forj
and the rendition of the program.
Back of It all is the fine spirit of
unselfishness i that will sacrifice

what do vou mean, 'make
trouble'?" asked David. "I'm sure
Lynda would not make trouble for
any one. She has troubles enough
of her own."
Emily said nothing, but again
David had an Idea that he had
said something better left unsaid,
and he ventured little more until
she had finished her lunch.
Consequently Emily, although
she had a stupid time, was able!tne ffr8t
to take a nice dish of gossip Daca
to the bunch, as well as the satis
faction of having her lunch paid
for by an attractive young man.
Soon after, one by one. they
trailed back from lunch, and as
many as possible crowded into the
rest room for their usual noonday

Claire Stanhope used to tell us
about who was so mean to his
daughter. This is almost her first
real Job, although she did some
dally copying and office work be
fore she left school.
"David Kenmore lives just at
the other corner of the block, and
they've known each other Bince
they were babies. It was he who
persuaded Armitage to hire her.

It yet, Cutie is in love with Dash
ing David, and is due to find out
what ails her mighty boon, and
she'll probably scalp anybody who
tries to two-time her."
"Look here, Emily,'.' interrupt
ed Claire Stanhope, "you're the
only one who will try that. I
know all about Lynda Fenton, and
I'm for her. I was in school with
hex. and her father is a terrible
person; drunk almost all the time.
Lynda hardly ever had enough
clothes to oover her back, fane
was very proud, too, and never
had a thing to say to any of the
other girls, and very little to me.
I used to talk with her some. Her
father had made her believe that
no woman was good but those
who haven't a chance to be bad.
He also told her there wasn't the
slightest chance of her ever being
anything but a rotter, as her
mother was before her. It was
Her mother, he told her, de
serted her when a baby, for an
other man, and the gin s wnoie

"I haven't talked with her yet,
Ralph Armitage, you'd better have
a heart and put her wise. I thank
my stars and my spectacles every
day of my life that I'm too plain
to-attract his notice."-
"He has never paid any atten
tion to any ' of us," interposed
Claire Stanhope, "even though
Emily, here, has dene her best to
attract his attention. I feel rath
er sorry for Ralph Armitage. You
see, Pa Armitage, himself, made
the very grave mistake of picking
out Miss Stella Waldron for his
daughter-in-law three years ago.
She was a girl very popular In so
ciety, and, of course, no one knew
she would go Insane when herfirst
baby was born dead. Hard nines
for poor Ralph, Isn't It? Some
times I don't blame him much for
playing around, for you know he
can't get a divorce from an In
sane wife, and If he falls in love
with any girl. It's sure to be a
total loss all around."
"Yes, and the worst of It is.
said Claire. "Emily wants to
throw poor Lynda at Ralph's head,
so that she will have a clear
chance with David Kenmore. Lyns
had such a rotten time at home,
she'll probably fall in love with
man who sends her a
bunch of violets or takes her to
see Gloria Swanson."
