It is said that "Where there's
a will there's a way." Since
childhood the truth of this old
saw has been drummed into - our
ears until at times we half be
lieved it to be true. Sometimes
we have hoped it might be so,
and again it has bsen our fer
vent prayer that nothing might
prove farther from the truth than
this "dog-eared" saying.
In Sunday's Oregonian appear
ed a vapory editorial in which it
was vaguely hinted that it might
be the part of wisdom to have
all the institutions of learning
in the state removed to Portland.
A portion of the article reads as
Suppose some experimental angel, with
a broom big enough, were to. fly over Or
egon and sweep together on one campus,
in Portland, for example; the , State Uni
versity, the Agricultural College, the four
State Normal Schools, the State Medical
School and the state law school! He
would be a bold angel without expecta
tion of future favors from the Legislature,
but would he not be benificent? Think
of the economies which would result to
the taxpayers of the state, a sordid
thought, of course, but 'an insistent one.
One plant instead of many; one set of
buildings; one outfit of libraries, labora
tories, furniture and professors; one ar
ray of buildings; one parcel of land; one
administrative force; one board of re
gents; one budget of incidentals.
Is this intended seriously? If
so, who is the genius that con
ceived this wonderful (?) idea?
And yet, on cecond thought, it is
not surprising that such an idea
should originate in a Portland
cranium. It has not taken a
close observer to note that in
stead of fostering and encourag
ing the development of various
enterprises of the state outside of
Portland, it has been a policy of
many years' standing for the
people of the metropolis to dis
courage and kill country indus
tries and institutions. ; ' -'
So far as our college, OAC, is
concerned, there -is not a parti
cle of fear that the Oregonian's
big broom angel will ever, sweep
it to Portland. Our legislators
are hot all fools. ; But the; spirit
of the writer of the article refer
red to is a selfish one. ; Either
that, or he is ill-informed. It' is
patent that he knows little of
conditions here, or else has lost
a sense of the fitness 'of things.
' No place in the state can there
be found a more beautiful site
for a college; there is no' loca
tion more healthful, nor -is living
cheaper anywhere in the state "of
Oregon.. ;But this is not all. The
various ; distractions of a large
city are not conducive to study,
and the nlajority of parents send,
ing their -children to college do
" so with the expectation that they
will make the best of their ; op
portunities while" there. In the
larger cities there are too many
- pitfalls for ensnaringjrouth, and
parents are aware of this and
guard against it
Will our metropolitan editorial
writer's dream come true? There
is no danerer. The hundreds of
thousands of dollars already in
vested here are aguaranty against
.it, even though other conditions
were not so perfectly satisfac
tory to the people of the state as
they are. Black angels and pitch
forks could not turn the trick.
A Warning.
We are in receipt'ot a letter
from Miss Carrie A. Holbrook,
secretary of the Portland Travel
er's Aid Association. The fol-
. lowing portiou of her4elter makes
clear her moth r in nting:
There, will be It -.ti m Portland,
Oregon, form the first ot June to
the fifteenth of October, the
i Lewis and Clark Exposition, and
it is the special endeavor of the
the Portland Traveler's Aid As
sociation"''' "affiliated with "the
name of Exposition T. A.- Com-pittce-1

and Marshal Field's in Chicago,
looking to the securing of work
here. Here in Prrtland the sup
ply already exceeds the demand
and unless the knowledge of this
fact can. be spread broadcast
throughout the United States the
result will be far beyond our ca
pabilities to handle.
Most of the inquiries received
advise us that the writer has saved
money enough to reach here, but
must have immediate employ
ment upon htr arrival. Longing
to see the sights of the Exposi-,
tion reduced railroad fairs ani-
the added assurance of employ
ment lorm a farm irresistable at
traction to the working girl iri
the East, who wishes for this sort
of vacation. In spite of repeat
ed warnings, the conditions at St
Louis last year was simply appal
ling, and it is the imperitive
thought of the Organization that
sometmno- m the way ot a pre
ventative be done.
After Prizes.
That our county to the west
is after some benefit from the Ex
position is evidenced by the fol
lowing from the Oregonian:
Lincoln countv is comine ; to
the Exposition with a view of
taking back all the prizes in sight
for county competition. C. M.
Brown, County Judge of Lincoln
County, has arrived at the Ex
position grounds to make fuU ar
rangements for a complete dis
play of the resources ot his sec
tion. He states that the people
of Lincoln County feel that they
have the best part of the state
and they intend to convince the
rest of the world that their possi
bilities are unequalled.
"In our exhibit " said Judge
Brown yesterday, 'we are going
to bring timber, stone, minerals,
fish and game, oysters and every
thing that is profitaDle. When
we have everything that is lying
around loose up here we are going
to take pictures of what we can't
transport. "I'm sorry we can't
bring our climate along with the
rest.. .; Everyone then would want
to flock to Lincoln county." 1
, The same spirit is shown by all
county ; representatives who are
now paying frequent visits to the.
Exposition grounds, and the re
sult will be close competition
with each county putting itstbest
foot forward. Plans - lor county
booths and exhibits are being
carefully concealed, as each con
tains some new and novel idea to
spring, and: by which it is hoped
to land cash awards and honor
able mention .-from the jury of
awards. Twentv-four Oregon
counties ? are participating and
the Exposition boards of each are
hard at work on the final -details
of their work. ' -;:
