. I ! " ' EducatorsSidestep Washington
FTIHE malcontents who are busv seekinc to oust Chancellor
JL Kerr from the Oregon system of higher education should
take a look at the University of Washington where the re
gents are unable to secure a first-class educator for the posi
tion because of the repute of politics which attaches to the
Office. Dr. Suzzalld, one of the greatest educational leaders
to serve the northwest was summarilly ousted through the
ukase of a time-serving governor. His successor, Dr. Spen
cer was a political stop-gap who was dropped from the pay
roll when the Hartley reign, was over. Regents are made to
walk the plank at the behest of the high command.
At the present special session of the legislature a bill
has passed the senate providing that regents of higher in
stitutions may not be dismissed by the governor save after
hearing of sworn charges by three superior court judges. In
the debate on the question Senator Todd of King county, de-"
dared:
"We're in a position where we can't get a president for the
university. The regents have interviewed 1 2 men in the east
for the position. After the applicants had studied the record and
learned that the last four presidents had been removed through
- political intrigue, they didn't care for the job.
"Any man who has a good job In the east would be a plain
damn fool to take a job at the university. Once we had a univer
sity now we have a kindergarten. Eight men are teaching 400
students in the law scool.'
The same thing would apply to Oregon if the blind maK
evolence of faction is permitted to sway the deliberations of
the board of higher education. What Oregon needs is to;
compose herself; and what the institutions and their com
munities need is cooperative effort to restore higher educa-i
tion in the state. We are confident that at his years the chan
cellor will retire when the immediate task of organization is
completed and when the state may then with confidence in
vite strong leadership for his successor. Continuous agita
tion now not only disturbs the institutions now but jeopar
dizes their future success.
LaGuardia s Cabinet
MAYOR-ELECT LaGUARDIA has announced his ap
pointments for the officials to assist him in the admin
istration of affairs in New York when he takes office in Jan
uary. He was elected on a fusion ticket, and has picked his
subordinates from many political breeds, chiefly party half
breeds like himself Republicans, democrats, socialists, f us
'ionists are in the list; but they are all listed as liberals, as
might be expected of a man like LaGuardia who was a party
rebel in congress.
LaGuardia with, his cabinet should be able to give New
York an honest and clean and reforming administration,
something it sorely needs. Not since John Purroy Mitchell
two decades ago was mayor of the city has the grip of Tam
many been broken. Assisting LaGuardia in the "new deal"
for New York are his appointees, which the Pathfinder de
scribes as follows:
"Robert Moses, commissioner of parks, is a Smith-Republican;
Prof. A. A. Berle, Jr., city chamberlain, was a member of
President Roosevelt's brain trust; Paul Blanchard, commis
, Sloner of accounts, la a former Socialist; Irvtng Ben Cooper,
accounts counsel, was Judge Samuel Sea bury 's assistant in the
, Walker investigation and a Democrat; Paul Windels, corporation
counsel, Is an Independent Republican; William Hodson, com
missioner of public welfare, has no political affiliations of any
kind: Langdon Post, a major figure in the fusion movement, is
the new tenement house commissioner, MaJ. Gen. John F.
O'Ryan, police commissioner, and John S. McElllgott, fire com
- missioner,""
Efficient
EFFICD3NCY has been highly refined at the motor license
division of the secretary of state's office. Secretary Hoss
is constantly alert for operating improvements which will
reduce the cost and speed up the service. With the system
now in vogue there is very little delay in obtaining a renewal
f license. Remember the long sheet one had to fill out a few
years ago, repeating information the division already had,
and thus cumbering its files with additional waste paper?
Now the old license is used for the application blank. The in
formation is there, and reference is easy to the old files.
With a $5 fee the division has to hold down its administra
tive costs to leave something for the highway funds. Secre
tary Hoss and Carl Gabrielson, head of the division, deserve
much credit for the fine system they have developed.

Health
By Royal S. Copeland. MJ).
IT IS euit common to compare
the human body to a machine. Like
anything in tht way of mechanical
construction, it may be defective.
This may be due
to the use of in
ferior material,
not putting It
properly tcfeth
er, or it may be
the result of con
stant wear and
tear.
Contrary to the
popular belief,
"hernia", or
"rupture-, as It ia
commonly called,
is not a disease.
It is a defect due
to muscular
weakness. This
weaknam avlarta
Dr. Copeland
in several locations of the body, mch
as around the umbilicus or "belly
button", and in the groin.
As a rule, the defect is present at
birth, but It is not detected until
adult life. It may disappear during
the development of the body, but
usually the weakness becomes more
and more marked. The rupture ls
Increased by manual labor, especially
work that requires sndden and force
ful exertion, like lifting.
"Dread Knife"
I am glad to say that hernia Is no
longer neglected as it was in former
years. Ia those days the victims of
hernia avoided the necessary opera
tion. They dreaded the knife" and
resorted to the use of a mechanical
appliance called a truss.
The trusses are likely to be uncom
fortable. They often cause more pain
than an operation and rarely, if ever,
cure or have any permanent valuable
effect on the rupture. In fact, many
surgeons believe that in some cases
it ls more harmful to wear a truss
than It is to leave the rupture alone.
But do not neglect a rupture. Bear
In mind the operation for the cor
rection of this defect is a simple one
and not to be feared. It Is danger
ous to delay since it may become
necessary to have an emergency op
eration. This occurs when loops of
Intestine become caught in the her
nial sac. This causes what is called
"strangulated hernia" and requires
Immediate operation. In such cases
the convalescence is prolonged and
more difficult than that following a
simple hernia operation.
Early Operation Urged
i am often asked, "when is the best
time to perform an operation for rup
ture in a child r If the health of
the child is good and he has devel
oped normally the operation may be
performed as early as the fifth year.
In cases of underweight and under
nourishment, it Is best to delay the
operation until the child Is well and
strong.
Consult with your doctor about this
simple operation. It Is unwise to
carry this handicap through life.
Bear In mind that the best results
obtained by operation are those per
formed in early life.
Perhaps you are unaware of hav
ing this physical defect When next
you visit your doctor ask him
whether you show any evidence of K.
This can easily be determined by a
routine physical examination.
Anrwers to Health Queries
M. J. H. Q. What will correct
constipation?
A. First correct your diet, by eat
ing plenty of fresh fruits and vege
tables. Send self -addressed, stamped

Journal of Rogue
River war, of 1855:
s s s
(Continuing from yesterday:)
The total U S. military force of
the department of the Pacific at
the beginning of 1855 was 1200
dragoons, infantry and artillery
of which 335 were stationed in
Oregon and Washington; but oth
ers were' under orders for the Pa
cific coast.
The army bill had failed to pass
congress, and only through the
smuggling of a section into the
general appropriation bill provid
ing for two more regiments of
cavalry and two of infantry wa3
any Increase of the army made
possible; this was accomplished
by Delegate Lane and the rest of
the delegation from the Pacific;
and it was further provided that
arms should be distributed to the
militia of the territories revert
ing to the terms of an act dating
back to 1808, arming the militia
of the states.
. 1.
The able General Joel Palmer,
superintendent of Indian affairs
for Oregon, was able in October,
1854, to assure the tribes with
whom he had made treaties that
they had been ratified by con
gress, although with some amend
ments to which they gave their
assent with reluctance. One of
these allowed other tribes to be
placed on their reservation, an
other consolidated all the Rogue
River tribes Into one two intru
sions offensive to them, and, in
their jealous natures, resented
with intense bitterness.
S 'm
Palmer had intended to remove
the Indians of the Willamette val
ley east of the Cascades, but found
them unwilling to go and tribes
men on the east side unwilling to
receive them, on account of their
diseased condition.
So he gathered them into the
Grand Rond reservation beyond
Sheridan, Oregon, much to the
disgust of the settlers of that dis
trict; the reservation land extend
ing to the coast country around
Siletz.
These were the first treaties
with Oregon country Indians since
the crude agreements made by Dr.
Elijah White in 1843. But now
General Palmer, Oregon superin
tendent of Indian affairs, and
Gov. 1. 1. Stevens, performing the
same duties for Washington ter
ritory,' then Including the part
that became Idaho, started out to
make treaties with the tribes east
of the Cascades. But that ls a
long, long-story, and parts of It
a bloody one.
mm
While General Palmer, in 1855,
was absent on that business be
yond the ranges, great trouble
was again brewing in southern
Oregon.
Following some minor disturb
ances, on June 1, Jerome Dyar
and Daniel McKaw were murder
ed on the road between Jackson
viUe and Illinois river. On vari
ous pretenses, the Indians of that
district roamed oft the reserva
tion, and In June a party of them
made a descent on a mining camp,
killing several men and capturing
valuable property, and a volunteer
company calling themselves the
"Independent Rangers' was or
ganized at Wait's mill ia Rogue
river valley, and went in pursuit
of the guilty renegades the first
such organization since the 1853
treaty was signed. The agent n
the reservation no titled Capt,
Smith of Fort Lane, who rounded
up the strays and herded them
back onto the reservation, where
they were safe. But Capt. Smith
missed one bunch, and the "Rang
ers" chased them into the moun
tains, there was a skirmish, and
one Indian 'was killed, and also a
white man named Philpot and
several horses wounded.
In August a white man sold a
bottle of whisky to some strolling
Indians from the reservation, and
they attacked a party of miners
on -the Klamath river, killing
John Pollock, Wm. Hennessey,
Peter Heinrich, Thomas Gray, Ed
ward Parrish, John L. Fickas, F.
D. Mattice, T. D. Mattlce and two
other men known as Raymond
and Pedro. Several Indians were
killed in the fight.
A company of. volunteers, or
ganized on the south side of the
Siskiyous, led by Wm. Martin,
went to the reservation and de
manded the surrender of the mur
derers; Capt. Smith refused, on
technical grounds he could not
deliver persons charged with
crime to a merely voluntary as
semblage of men. Late, however,
some arrests were made on a re
quisition from Siskiyou county.
S w
Another affair in August pro
duced a strong feeling against the
regular soldiers even more than
the Indians. An Indian shot at and
wounded James Buford, near the
mouth of Rogue river. Ben
Wright, the agent, delivered the
Indian to the sheriff of Coos coun
ty, who, having no Jail, trusted
him to a squad of soldiers to be
taken to Fort Orford and placed
in the guardhouse. While the
canoe in which were the prisoner
and his guards was passing 'down
the river to a place of encamp
ment, it was followed by Buford,
his partner Hawkins and a trader
named O'Brien, determined to
give the Indian no chance of es
cape through the sympathy of the
military authorities. They fired
on the canoe, killing the prisoner
and another Indian. The fire was
returned by the soIZtiers, killing
two of the white men and mor
tally wounding the third.
Indignation aroused against the
military by this affair was intense.
There was in the air a threat to
fight both soldiers and Indians.
Sept. 2, Greenville M. Keene of
Tennessee was killed on the reser
vation, while, with others, he was
attempting to recover some stolen
horses, and two of his party were
wounded. Sept. 24, Calvin Fields
of Iowa and John Cunningham of
Sauve Island, Oregon, were killed
and Harrison Oatman and Daniel
Brltton wounded, while crossing
the Siskiyou mountains with load
ed teams, and their 18 oxen slain.
Capt. Smith, ordering out a de
tachment, was unable to make any
arrests. On the 25th, Samuel War
ner was killed near the same
place.
Early in October a party of
reservation India ns were discover
ed encamped near the mouth of
Butte creek, on Rogue river, and
it was suspected that among them
were some who had been annoy
ing the settlers. Oct. 8, a company
of about 30 men led by J. A. Lup
ton, surprised this camp before
daybreak and killed 23 and
wounded many before it was
learned that most of them were
non-combatants, or old men, wom
en and children. Lupton was kill
ed and 11 of his men wounded,
a proof that the Indians were not
all unarmed. But mutual hatreds
were further aroused by the af
fair. That night two men were killed
and another wounded, who were
in charge of a pack train at Jew
ett's ferry. Jewett's house was
fired upon, but no one was killed.
A considerable number of Indians
had gathered, apparently by con
cert, near this place.
V
About daylight on the 9 th they
proceeded down the river to
Evans ferry, where they found
Isaac Shelton of the Willamette
valley on his way to Treka and
mortally wounded him. Still fur
ther down was the house of J. K.
Jones, whom they killed; also
mortally wounded his wife, and
pillaged and burned his house. Be-
CHAPTER THIRTY -fTOIB ,
f Once upstairs she wearily
droppec off hex clothes, brushed hex
hair: slowly, methodically and got
into bed. The lights were off. She
was lying la the dark. The agony
of pain mad jealousy that she had
ept at bay all evening was upon her.
The scene la the livinr room re
turned agaia- and again. She could i
not escape it. A thousand times she
saw dark lifting her hand to Idas
it, saw ICarthe walking in the doer.
How cheap ia retrospect her.eva
part seemed! Clark was engaged
and she had known it Yet she bad
deberatjr sought U chana hint
had used every saeane t engage
his batareat, bad openly flsnr her
self at bis bead. t
' He thotrghts swung inevitably to
that pc4nt when she bad been about
to tell dark everything, when she
had wavered on the brink of con
fessing her love for him. Uer cheeks
burned in the darkness. Hew ska
folly the man bad averted her cen-
f ession. How quickly he bad offered
friendship. .
She turned and twisted, disgusted
with, herself, ber pride in tatters.
Presently she beard footsteps and
roiees ia the hall outside. The
ethers were coming upstairs. Some
one knocked at her door. Patricia
lay very still.
"Patricia, someone called, "Pat
ricia." It was Julian.
"What do you want?" she re
sponded daUy. "I'm ia bed."
Tut on something, please. I'd
like to talk to you."
TouH have to wait till morn
ing." He went away. After a while a
deep silence fell upon the house.
Suddenly Patricia sprang from bed,
pulled on a negligee and went to
the window. Leaning her elbows en
the sOI she stared out into the star
lit night.
The Sound was a sheet of onyx
silvered by moonlight, stirred by a
wandering, vagrant breexe. Patri
cia looked up at the dome of the
sky sprinkled with millions of stars,
slashed by a crescent moon. How
cheap and petty seemed the strug
gles of two girls for a single man.
This girl could think of nothing
else.
"Clark could have loved me,"
whispered Patricia to herself. "I
knew he coedd have."
But he hadnt. He wouldn't.
Things weren't planned that way.
Marthe had everything. She would
have this final glory. Some bright
day in the fall Martha would" walk
down a carpeted aisle with Clark.
Marthe would kneel in her flutter
ing veil and satin gown, would rise,
would lift her lips for her first kiss
as s wife. Patricia laid her head on
the window sill.
It was not fair that one girl
should have so much, that another
girl should have so little. How dif
ferent her life and Marthe'a life
had been. Marthe had had expen
sive nurses, governesses, smart
schools, trips to Europe. Patricia's
own life seemed to pass before her
eyes In a series of little pictures
that were like stereopticon slides.
She saw herself as a child of ten,
shabby and eager, a gambler's
daughter, waiting for ber father to
come in from an aS night game. '
Had the cards been running? Tes
or no? Even at ten she bad known
the extreme Importance of her
father's answer. She saw herself:
again after his death, crushed with,
grief and dazed, with worry, won-
low this place was the house of
J. Wagoner, an the way to It the
Indians killed four men.
Mr. Wagoner was absent from
his home, having gone that morn
ing to escort Miss Pellet, a tem
perance lecturer from Buffalo,
N. Y., to Sailor Diggings. The fate
of Mrs. Wagoner and her 4 year
old daughter was never certainly
known, the house and all in it
having been burned. She was a
young and beautiful woman, well
educated and refined. One story
told by the Indians themselves
was that she fastened . herself In
her house, carefully dressed as If
for a sacrifice, and, seating her
self in the center of the sitting
room with her child in her arms,
awaited death, which came to her
by fire. But others said, and prob
ably with truth, that she was car
ried off, and her child killed be
cause it cried so much; that the
mother refused to eat, and died of
grief and starvation at "The
Meadows." Capt. John M. WaUen
afterward declared that two scalps
captured from the Indians at the
battle of Cow Creek in 1856 were
Identified as those of Mrs. Wagon
er and her child, the mother'a
beautiful hair being unmistakable.
So none of the Indian stories may
be the actual truth.
From the smoking ruins of the
Wagoner home the Indians pro
ceeded to the place of Geo. W.
Harris, who being a little distance
from his house and suspecting
that they meant to attack him,
ran quickly in and seized his gun.
As they e tore .on with, hostile
words, he shot one and wounded
another from his. doorway, where
he himself was shot down a few
moments later, leaving his wife
and daughter to defend them
Belves, which they did for 24
hours, before help arrived.

The pictures cam: thick and fast

chine, herself on an endless search
for a job, the children crying from
cold. She remembered the time
when she had first played cards for
money. Fifteen she was, and Eileen
Sycott had needed a fourth to make
up a table of bridge. Not that she
had gambled then. It had been a
job that paid ber fifty cents an
hour. But she had gambled so often
since. She had gambled at last with
ber own good name. The pact with
Julian Haverholt, as she viewed it
now, was ne more, no less than
that.
She was thinking so hard of
Julian just then that she saw him
on the lawa below with a shock of
surprise. It must be nearly two
o'clock. Julian, costless, his white
head bare, strolled out of the vision
of her window and on across the
moonlit gardens as casually as
though it bad been eight in the
morning. He had wanted to speak
to her. About what? Suddenly Pat
ricia determined to know.
In a minute she had hurried into
clothes, pulled on a soft little hat,!
slipped into walking shoes. She was
in the upstairs hall. Tho house was
asleep. With no especial attempt at
caution Patricia walked down the
stairway, through the darkened
foyer and out into the brilliant
night. The grass was heavy with
dew. The wind from the Sound was

Julian was not in sight. All at
once the expedition seemed silly.
What Julian had to say could wait
until morning. Patricia hesitated,
glancing this way and that, half
inclined to return to bed, Still she
knew that she could not sleep. She
strolled en, her eyes alert for a
glimpse of the man. Her footsteps
left tracks in the sparkling dew.

Patricia could not see her but shi

"Come now, Julian. Tell the trutk

I know that girl is not your niece.
"Then you're wrong."
"Oh, am I?"

She had heard that laugh before

been a quick dip in a swimming
pool as blue as a sapphire lake,
there had been a polo game in the
afternoon. They had all piled into
cars to go to the field. Patricia had
seen Clark, a cork helmet tilted
rakishly across his burned, brown
brow, a mallet held in his steady
