IF there is any bunch which needs to be sent up -for senile
dementia, it is the republican national committee. It has
pulled more political poneheacs the last lew years man
most any organization can survive under. The latest dis

Of a piece with this performance is the initial action
of the new federal power commission in summarily dis
charging Solicitor Charles A. Russell and Chief Accountant
Frank V. King. The commission itselis uhiefly a -collection
of mediocrities, and the discharge of these faithful ser
vants of the public interest is , a blow at good government
and another major blunder for the administration. :
Under the old power commission, "Bonner; named sec
retary by Secretary Wilbur, consistently endeavored to
junk the safeguards to the public contained in the federal
power act; and only the vigilance of Russell and King pre
vented the utilities from absolutely dominating the admin
istration of this important federal commission.
Here some of us have been shouting; to;the people that
the federal power act was an efficient protection to public
rights against the monopolistic greed of utilities,; and now
the very men who had fought to preserve those rights are
summarily kicked out by the new chairman, George Otis
Smith, before he gets his breeches warm in his new seat.
It is as though the Hoover administration was as dumb as
bourbons, learning nothing from the last election and from
h nnaitive exnression -of tmblic opinion.

was south of Salem., on- Battle
creek. 'Lon Wain now owns the
land, or a pert of it. It was
where the road that Is the south
extension of 12 th street meets

Mrs. Fabrltus Smith was Vir
gilia Prlngle, daughter of Virgil
K. Prlngle. The mother ot Fa
brltus Smith, who lived at the
Smith home, was a year or two
above 100 years old when she
died, in the nineties, or the early
years of the present century.
A. N. Bush will not thank the
Bits man for giving the fact that
he sent to Tom Davis 175 a year
In the last 15 years or so ot his
life. It came about in this way:
Some of his colored friends, 15
or 18 years ago, got the news to
Mr. Bush that Tom was in fee
ble health, and needy. So he
sent him $75. Tom continued
needy, and well, it became a
e . a
Some days before Tom died, a
colored woman wrote to Mr.
Bush that she was waiting on
him In his illness, and that there
was not money to buy some ot
the things the sick man needed.
Mr. Bush sent her a 225 check.
Then he asked his friend, Cy
Woodworth ot Portland, to go
and see - how Tom was getting
along. - Mr. Woodworth Is a
brother ot Mrs. I. L. Patterson,
widow of the ex-governor. Mr.
Woodworth went and phoned
Mr. Bush that he found Tom
dead. He had Just passed away.
The colored woman who bad the
$25 check wrote that it was too
late to use It. Should she snd
It back Mr. Bush told her to
cash it and keep the money, tor
wages for waiting on Tom.
After Tom, the colored boy,
found he was free, he attached
himself to the family of G. W.
Gray, prominent In Salem's old
days, and Tom was a reliable
servant in that family as long
as the elder Grays lived. Their
home wss the house that was
moved to the university grounds
from 14th near State street, and
long used as the music hall; and.
has just been torn down.
Mr. Bush, as a youth, often
went hunting with the Gray
boys. William, George and Char
ley. Tom. who was a good hunt
er, always went along.. The Gray
boys and young Bash did not al
ways have ample hunting sup
plies. They had not then at
tained to a state of even moder
ate fortune. But Tom always
had his powder horn full, and
plenty of bullets. And the boys
all had plenty of powder as long
as there was grain left in Tom's
horn. And plenty ot other
hunting supplies, too.
So, when Tom was old, and
A. N. Bush could spare a little
annual gift to help him keep
body and soul together, with
something ot the comforts ot
life, eked out with his own earn
ings, the faithful old fellow was
not allowed to want for the gift,
though he himself never asked
for it. Mr. Bush was generally
kept Informed of Tom's condi
tion by the, colored porters and
cooks going through Salem.
