THE CAPITAL JOURNAL
DKEAH OF LIFETIME
Spokane, Wash., Feb. 27. A reso
lution, formed in the days when he
was toiling as a locomotive engineer,
to make lite easier and more pleas
ant If he fvar was given the oppor
tunity, for parentleas boys and girls
than hi own orphan boyhood had
been, saw Its fruition here recently
with the completion by L. W. Hut
ton of this city, at a cost approxi
mating half a million dollars, of the
Huttsa settlement for children.
The opportunity caine soma years
afterward, when fortunate invest
ments in raining properties had plac
cd Mr. Hutton In the class of reput
ed millionaires, and in 1917 construc
tion of an orphans home was started.
The entire institution, consisting of
five fireproof buildings and a large
dairy barn situated on 280 acres of
woods, farm and pasture lands near
this city, has been built from Mr.
Hutton's personal funds and under
his personal supervision.
Wa have sought to avoid all sem
blance to the ordinary 'orphans'
home' in planning and building the
Institution," Mr. Hutton said. "It is
my desire that no suggestion of 'or
phanage' be attached to the entab
lishement In any manner. I exper
ienced what it means to lark a father
and a mother, and I want the chil
dren who are to live in this institu
tion never to be forced to contend
with that handicap."
The Institution resembles a large
country home, multiplied by four or
five, more than it does the traditional
orphanage. Besides a large central
building, housing the offices and liv
ing quarters of the staff, a com
pletely equipped hospital, an assem
bly hall, bakery, refrigeration plant
and laundry, the establishment in
cludes four "cottages." Each of the
latter, constructed of pressed brick,

Detroit, Mich., Feb. 2T. How many
potential presidential nomineas will
seek the endorsement of Michigan's
delegation to the national convention
remains a matter of speculation. The
complete list wCl not be known until
noon Mirch 1, when the time for fil
ing nominating petitions expires, al
though the preference primary res
not take place until April S.
Party managers are making every
effort to. get the greatest number of
candidates on the primary ballot, hold
ing that a true of expression of Mich
igan's sentiment cannot be obtained
unless a large field is placed before
the voters for choice.
Foremost among the republicans
who will be on the primary ballot are
Major General Leonard Wood and
Governor Frank O. Lowden, of Illinois,
who already have appeared several
times in the state. Senator Hiram
Johnson of California, also has Indi
cated his Intention of filing nominat
ing petitions. In the absence of a def
inite pronouncement from President
Wilson on the third term subject the
democrats have been marking time.
Although Herbert Hoover has an
nounced he does not seek presidential
honors, incomplete petitions In his be
half already have been filed at the sec
retary of state's office. It is generally
expected Hoover's name will appea
on both republican and democratic bal
lots, the state's legal department hav

primary law passed by the last legis

As only 100 signatures are required
to nominating petitions to a place 01:

number of petitions will be held up
until ue.irly tho last minute.
