Decline of a Great Weekly
RECENT announcement was made that the magazine "The
Outlook and Independent" would change from weekly to
monthly publication. The news is without much significance
now, for the magazine has fallen into low estate.
Twenty years ago "The Outlook" was the most powerful
magazine published in this country. It has been founded as
a popular semi-religious magazine by Henry Ward Beecher.
Later Lyman Abbott who had become successor to Beecher
in Plymouth church, Brooklyn, became its editor. Under the
Abbott editorship the influence of the magazine was far
reaching. Many of its articles were of permanent literary
value, such as Booker Washington's "Up From Slavery";
George Kennan's articles descriptive of Russia and Siberia;
the autobiography of Jacob A. Riis. , , j , , I ,
When R&6setelt retired frpni ihH tttiebcy he became
contributing -editor of The OutfookJ do' thi3' magazine carried
most of his writings on the "new nationalism" which he was
expounding in the period culminating with the launching of
the Progressive party. The writings of Lyman Abbott on
both secular and religious topics were marked by a lucid style
and penetrating judgment that made him one of the intel
lectual leaders of his day.
After Lyman Abbott's death his sons Lawrence and Er
nest carried on for a number of years, and maintained its
standing creditably. Then control was changed and Francis
Edward Bellamy became its editor. He seemed an evangel of
wetness ; and made the magazine a propaganda sheet for the
repeal of prohibition. This naturally offended the older con
stituency of the paper. While many of them might entertain
similar ideas or at least be tolerant of intelligent expression
of such ideas, they objected to having their one-time favor
ite magazine made a mere house organ for breweries and
distilleries.
The Outlook and The Independent were merged a num
ber of years ago, but the consolidated weekly has steadily lost
favor until now it is rarely quoted and virtually without in
fluence in the country as a whole. It may succeed as a month-
- ly ; and some one may arise who can restore some measure of
its former prestige. Now it is quite impotent.
The Wallula Cut-off
THE Pendleton East Oregonian replies editorially to the
charges of other inter-mountain newspapers that Editor
Aldrich, new member of the highway commission, has been
instrumental in getting the construction of the Wallula cut
off shelved. The E. O. saj's :
"The action by the state highway commission in deferring
advertising for bids on the Sand Station-Washington state line
section of the Wallula cutoff does not necessarily mean that the
cutoff is not to be completed. The basis for the present postpone
ment is the fact that for a distance of over six miles the highway,
as proposed, would have been at an elevation lower than the
crest of the dam at Umatilla rapids, provided the dam Is built
with the top at an elevation of 330 feet above sea level, as sug
gested in the war department survey. Therefore the highway for
the distance stated would have been submerged by the building
of such a dam."
The strictures of the other papers against Aldrich are a
bit severe. There is already an excellent cut-off on the Wash

O'Keiley, Pioneer
Speaker at Program
Recalls high history:
(Continuing from yesterday:)
A daughter of B. F. and Mary A.
McClench (Gray) is Mrs. Mary E.
Watson of 16a West Washington
street, Salem. She was named
Mary for her mother and Eliza
beth for her aunt, Mrs. Thurston-
Odell. Mrs. Odell's middle given
name was French. Mrs. Watson is
an American War Mother, by the
double right of having had two
sons in the World war forces, one
in the army and the other in the
navy the one in the army was in
some of the big engagements
along the Hindenburg line.
m
Mrs. Watson attended Willam
ette university, was a teacher.
and is a cultured lady, by inher
itance and through her own ef
forts. Of course, she remembers
well the McClench log house la
Polk county where she was born.
It was a big house, built with
hewn logs, much more elaborate
than some ot the first cabins of
the settlers that were necessarily
thrown together in a hurry to
get roofs over their heads.
S S
Mrs. Watson recalls the family
and pioneer tradition concerning
the breaking of the dread news
of her husband's death to her
aunt. She knew and could know
nothing of his passing for several
weeks after the event. There
were no telegraph lines, and the
malls did not travel faster than
the people who were with him in
his lasf hours. All unsuspecting.
she awaited his coming at their
home at Linn City.
m m
The persons who broke the sad
news to the widow never forgot
the scene. Nor wished for a simi
lar experience in performing what
was a self imposed though pain
ful duty.
About three years ago, Samue
R. Thurston, passing on his way
from northern points to Califor
nia by auto, accompanied by his
wife and son, called upon Mrs.
Watson at her home here. She
had not seen him since he was
child of two years. He especially
wanted to visit the grave of his
grandfather, which he had not
yet seen. It was nearly noon, and
he was in such a hurry that he
hesitated to accept Mrs. Watson's
invitation- to lunch with her.
Upon her offer to make the prep-

:The Stuart Painting
TEOPLE like the Gilbert Stuart portrait of Washington
JL because he appears more handsome in it than in other
paintings. However, according to authority, that is not the
truest likeness of the immortal George. W. E. Wroodward, au
thor of a biography of the first president, says in an article
in last week s Nation :
"Another fact is that the commonly accepted portrait of
Washington the Gilbert Stuart Athenaeum painting is not his
best picture. What I am saying here will be considered the rank
est heresy; nevertheless it is the truth, like a good many other
heresies.
"His face was leaner and longer than it appears in the Ath
enaeum portrait! He had a finer, more sensitive countenance. In
1T85 the French sculptor Houdon made a life mask of G. W.
. ,i . . . This life mask shows Washington's features perfectly, of
eourse. It is a mechanical reproduction. The life mask lacks the
"beefy look of the Stuart picture." .'-.

visit to the grave, allowing the
grandson to proceed on south
from the cemetery her invitation
was accepted, and after the meal
they proceeded to the historic
spot, only a little way south.
S
Some years ago. Mrs. Watson
heard of the visit here ot a trav
eler from Lewlston. Maine, look
ing for the Thurston grave and
monument, wishing to get a
photograph. of them. She took up
the matter with him by raaU and
found he had secured tbe picture,
and that his Interest came from
the fact that his wife was a niece
of Thurston, Oregon's first dele
gate. He promised, some day, to
return to Oregon and visit Salem
again.
.
The Thurston grave and mon
ument are In the I. O. O. F.
Rural cemetery, about half way
up the hill from the Commercial
street entrance, and In an indi
vidual plot, the road leadlnr bv
on both sides, as is well known
to most residents of tMs section.
The wording on the south side
or the monument reads: "Here
rests Oregon's first delegate, a
man of genius and learning, a
lawyer and statesman. His Chris
tlan virtues equaled his wide
philanthropy. His public acts are
his best eulogium."
S S .
On the east side is the engrav
ing of a broken shaft, with other
figures, and the words. "Erected
by the people of Oregon", and, in
large letters, the name, "Thur
ston".
s
On the north side, these words
are engraved: Hon. Sami R.
Thurston. Born In Maine April
IT, 1815. Died off Acapulco April
9, 1851". Crowning the shart is
an urn, and under it is engraved
an hour glass. On the west side
is no lettering, but some fancy
work of the marble cutter.
" -
One of the reasons why the
writer is particular about riving
this description In such detail Is
the fact that the lettering on the
south side, exposed to the winds
and rains of the winter season
here, is all but illegible. A little
while more, and one will not be
able to read the engraved let
tering. The matter should have
attention. The engraving needs to
be done over, and there is surely
a way to protect It against the
ravages of the weather.

SYNOPSIS j
Mary Kennedy had youth and
beauty and an Intense fear of pov
erty. Almost the last words of her
dying mother warned her against
marriage to a poor mas. Mary re
fuses the offer of a home with her
married sister, Katharine. She
rents a small room. While sitting
ia the park making plans for a Job,
aa elderly man of distinguished
appearance engages her ia conver
sation. He is Buck Landers, well
kaows sports promoter and race
horse owner. Hs offers Mary a ioh
as secretary. Mary calls on Laa-l
ders relative to the position. They
havs dinner together and Mary is
thrilled by the surrounding splen
dor. Landers offers Mary a life of
luxury.
.CHAPTER V
N her narrow room with its white
iron bed looking into a court
yard, she thought of the ornate
and expensive roof garden she had
just left. The evening gleamed
brightly ia retrospect. Actually it
had been her first taste of the great
city's magnificence, of its iridescent
atmosphere. When she stretched her
slender young body out on the rented
bed she was not sleepy; it was pleas
ant to lis there and give herself up
te dreams and possibilities. Life as
Buck Landers could give it thrilled
her with guttering visions. Bean
tif ul clothes, marvelous limousines,
travel, yachts, ths theatres. In his
world of wealth her imagination
could riot freely. She had rem
be red something she had read ia a
book once, about moonlit castles oa
the Rhine.
"But I'm not thinking about him
at an only his money," she told
herself with a little jolt of honesty.
"It would be nice to be his daughter,
I can't imagine myself married to
him . . . his wife. . . .
Morning brought the crass neces
sity of the work-a-day world. Mr.
Nelson, the manager of the Metrop
olis Hotel, received his new secre
tary with a marked cordiality.
"We're glad to have you with ns,
Miss Kennedy. Mr. Landers said
some complimentary things about
you. I think you're going to make
rood."
Nelson belonged to the Falstaff
school of architecture. His girth was
enormous, his face and head were
round, and he wore a perpetual and
professional smile. He had small
bluish eyes, cunning and calculat
ing. To a welcomed guest he could
be the soul of hospitality, but to a
cringing underling he was a Roman
galley master. He could take a hotel,
any hotel, and squeeze incredible
profit out of it. His appetite for
work was insatiable ; apparently he
never slept. It was a point of
honor with him to know as many
guests as possible by name, with the
result there was never a room vacant
in the hotel.
Mary's work was in part steno
graphic. In reality she was some
thing of an assistant manager. Net
son was constantly giving lists of
articles to be ordered from the
wholesale houses foods, linens,
sundries. She conferred daily with
the housekeeper about chamber
maids and laundry. Every depart
ment of the hotel made daily re
ports which she checked with the
bookkeeper to forestall any leaks.
"We're using twenty-five per cent
more soap this year than last," Ne
sob said to her. "I want yon
make a check-up with the store
keeper and find out whafs becoming
of it."
It developed that no more soap
was used than formerly. It was only
that the tradesman charged more
and billed the hotel boldly for the
increase. Long and earnestly Nel
son talked into the telephone, and
when he had finished the dealer had
some back ta his original price and
agreed to a rebate oa the excess
charges. Five hundred dollars was
thus returned to the Metropolis.
"Never let 'em get away with any
thing." Nelson told Mary. "That's
the whole business I"
The patrons of ths Metropolis
were mainly of the sporting class.
Oa the mezzanine floor adjoining
Nelson's office there were several
other offices occupied by boxing man
agers, hockey promoters and du
bious gentlemen who wore striped
shirts and diamond rings. Among
the guests was Aubrey Hollings
worth, the movie actor. Mary had
often seen him ia the pictures. Ia
recent years his popularity was be
file," he murmured. "The screen
always needs new faces. I should
be the last one to give false encour
agement to aspirants but may I ask,
have you ever thought of going to
Hollywood?"
"No, I havenl."
"I shouldn't dart make any defi
nite promises, but if you ever come
to the West Coast, be sure to ring
me up. I wont be going back for
ten days or so. Perhaps, some eve
ning here, we may talk it over I
mean, how would you like te come
up here some evening and havs a
little talk with me about the movies,
heart ta heart, se te speak?"
Before Mary could answer him,
"Won't you come up soon and have a talk on the movies, heart to heart
so to speak?
ginning to wane but he was still
more or less famous. She recalled
recent newspaper writings that his
wife was in Paris divorcing him. By
an odd chance Mary, after a few
days, was privileged to meet the
celebrity.
"HoQingsworth wants to dictate
a few letters, and our public stenog
rapher is all tied up," Nelson said
te her. "With guests like Hollings-
worth we try to give every service
they bring a lot of publicity to
ths house. Would you mind going
up to his office a half hour or so
for courtesy of the management and
that sort of thing know what I
mean?"
Taking her notebook and pencil.
a Kttle nervously, Mary presented
herself for service in Hollings-
worth'a suite. The greet msn re
ceived her in a scarlet and gold
lounging robe, and a Byronic shirt.
He was scented faintly with lemon
verbena, which may have been from
the soap he used. His face was vig
orously featured and his body trim.
At close range he looked older than
she expected; there were slight
pouches under his eyes and fine lines
about his mouth.
"So sorry to put you out," he mur
mured ia a rich throaty voice. "X
usually bring my staff East with
me, but this time I just packed off
incognito,' so to speak. Just make
yourself comfortable anywhere
about the room, my dear.
Ha gave her four or five letters
to people ia Los Angelf concerning
small business matters. When he
had finished Mary ross to ge but he
raised a graceful hand and detained
her.
"It just occurred to me, my child,
that you nave a remarkabis pre-
his telephone rang. "Oh, Juanita
darling I Just a minute please. . . ."
He put his hand over ths mouth
piece, and turned to Mary. "I think
that will be all for today," he ut
tered, his eyes taking ia Mary from
head to feet. "You won't forget to
ring me up, will you?"
Mary smiled but did not promise.
She met other people whose names
appeared quite often in the news
papers; Moe Levy, a hatchetf ace
like man who was the manager of
Dick Leeds, the "London Lad." Levy
brought his protege into Nelson's
office one day for a chat. Leeds was
a fresh-faced young Cockney with
broad shoulders and one thickened
ear. He had come to America only
recently and ia the next few days
was to make his bid for the heavy
weight championship in an intro
ductory bout at the Madison Square
Garden. Kelson seemed to have a
close friendship with the manager
and an admiring curiosity toward
the fighter. All three of them chat
ted in pugilistic jargon that was
