The North and "Pechuck"
"OEPORTS have come of the discovery by a scientific expe-
AV dition of the bodies of a group of vikings perfectly pre
served in the frozen soil of Greenland, after an interment of
over 500 years. The bodies were clothed in tight breeches and
heavy homespun coats. The refrigeration of the north had
preserved the remains perhaps more perfectly than the dry
air of Egypt has kept the mummies of the ancient Pharaohs.
This news report suggests the experience of Lome Knight,
as related by Richard C. Montgomery in "Pechuck , one of the
most vivid chronicles of arctic exploration which has gone
into print. Knight was returning with Stefannson from a trip
over the ice in 1917 to a point nine and a half degrees south
of the pole. They came to Dealy island, off Melville island
in midsummer and there located a house which had been
built by Captain Kellett in 1852 and '3. They burrowed
through the ice and snow into the house and found casks of
English navy cocoa "as fresh, beneath the surface, as it was
the day Kellett left here", flour, split peas, currants, dessi
cated potatoes, dried onions. They found a cask of brown
sugar which had been liquified by the melted snow which had
crept into the cask, and which tasted as good as Vermont
syrup. They found large quantities of canned meat and vege
tables. "I opened one of the cans labeled 'mutton and found
the meat in apparently perfect condition after sixty-four
years." They did not sample it for fear of ptomaine, but a
husky dog grabbed a chunk and ate it without ill effect.
"Pechuck', we miy go on to say, is a remarkable story
of an Oregon born youth who went-into the far north, spent
four busy years there, and emerged a veteran of arctic ex
ploration. The book is a swift-moving narrative of his ex
periences. It is written from the notes of Knight, and is so
skillfully done that one sees nowhere the carpentry of the
editor, but always the fresh, simple story of an eager and
curious young man. The book is rich with an unstudied hum
or, and though written in the first person is remarkable for
its modesty, a virtue usually lacking among explorers.
The book is one of the best things done by an Oregon
author; is not at all local in its story or appeal; and ought
to live long among books of adventure not built up on Dick

Towb Talks from The States
maa of Earlier Days
Ought to be a Rebate
IN the hearing over the financial relations of Pepco & its
papa and grandpapa & its own babies in Portland, it
was brought out that Central Public Service has been get
ting 22,000 a month out of the local utilities, simply by
means of a letter telling the hired men out here to pungle
up same. So far as Oregon can see the payments ought to
come the other way. Pepco was getting along real well, pay-1
ing its dividends regularly, and keeping on good terms with
its stockholders at least, until CPS came along. Then the
Remote control has not helped Pepco but injured it. Local
officials who were doing a good job before, have found it
difficult to conduct the business as well a3 formerly because
it is impossible "to manage a business at a distance of two
v So far as Pepco finances are concerned, its securities
never were as low priced as they have been since CPS, pasted
its label on the concern.
Under the law such agreements or contracts must be
, submitted to the public service commission of the state
for approval. CPS did nothing of the kind, merely used its
power through control of the stock to skim the cream off4
the operating units-.
Pepco ought to ask for a rebate from Chicago.
Portland's Coming Election
,TTPSTATE Oregon will be an interested spectator in the
J Portland city election. The familiar name of George L.
Baker is missing from the roster of candidates. The other
names being chiefly unfamiliar, we have to get our thrill
out of the various slogans that have been contrived for vote
shagging. One man brazenly declares "against wage cuts"
while the next in line ays "cut all expenses". One candidate
makes his battle cry out of: "Roberts rules- of order always".
Then there is the homely appeal, "just another taxpayer and
one of you" which one man expects to get him in right with
the voters. Three call for "a new deal" ; another for a "square
deal"; while economy gets a big hand all down the list.
"Constructive counciling" are the words one candidate
puts on his banner. Utilities are in for the usual spanking
with numerous calls for lower phone rates; "against car
franchise"; ,"five-cent jitney"; "publicly owned light, heat,
power". Only one man professes himself "bone dry". Another
expects to maice a hit with "big pay and four hours a day".
, Perhaps that is the way he expects to fill the office.
Being a candidate is perilous business; but with 15 seek
ing to be mayor and 26 aspirants for the job of city com
missioner, it looks as though the Portland voter would have
to run for his money this time. .
