the deal Involves, It is understood that

Title to the property remains
wun the Lownsdale Orchard Company,
a corporation of which Mr. Lowns
dale was the president and in which
he was the principal stockholder, he
having held all but two or three shares
of stock. The stock alone changes
hands. The 1910 crop of apples also
has been sold. Ill health la eiven n
me cause of his retirement.
Mr. Lownsdale was virtually the
pioneer of all later day apple growing
in ine Willamette Valley. When he
planted his orchard 21 years ago ap
ple growing in that section was al
most a lost art. The possibility of
growing apples there often had been
denied, even the pioneers of the valley
having concluded that it was not pos
sible to produce the wonderful results
that had given the valley a great repu
tation before fruit pests appeared.
He took issue with this belief and
remembering the magnificent apples
grown by his father, by the Llewell
yns, by the Wallings and by hund
reds of others, planted an orchard of
300 acres. The success of the plant
ing Is known all over the United
States and England, and this year as
far away as Brazil. The work of Mr.
Lownsdale has re-established the ap
plegrowing industry In the great val
ley reaching from Portland to Eugene.
His orchard has been a material
demonstration of his ideas, this year
crowning his success with a record
production of 75,000 boxes. The crop
which had been sold to the Karl
Fruit Company, is involved in a sep
arate deal, the purchasers of the land
continuing the contract.
Mr. Lownsdale now has In mind the
establishment of a market for hand
ling the fruit of this region and hopes
to perfect the organization of a Will
amette Valley Fruitgrowers' Associa
tion, the object being to provide a
common channel for the output.
The Lownsdale orchards have been
productive principally of Ben Davis
apples, although Baldwins and Spitz
enbergs have been grown. In recent
years 80 acres have been grafted with
Yellow Newtowns. He also has cross
grafted many trees, producing im
provements on these varieties.

If Champ Clark la elected speaker
of the next house of representatives,
he will be the thlrty-flfm man chosen
as the regular presiding officer of the
lower branch of congress and the first
ever selected from the state of Missouri.
Representative Clark would also be
the second speaker to hail from west
of the Mississippi river. Iowa has the
distinction of being the only state west
of the Mississippi that has been hon
ored with the speakership up to the
present time. The late David B. Hen
derson, of Iowa, served as speaker of
the fifty-sixth and fifty-seventh con
gresses. Massachusetts, Virginia and Ken
tucky are the states which have been
most highly favored in regards to the
speakership. Each has had four of Its
representatives chosen to preside over
The four speakers from Massachu
setts were Theodore Sedwick, of the
twenty-first congress; Joseph D. Var
num, of the tenth and eleventh con
gresses; Robert C. Winthrop, of the
thirtieth congress, and Nathaniel F.
Banks, of the thirty-fourth. When Mr.
Winthrop was elected speaker of the
thirtieth congress It was by a majority
of one vote, which Is the closest con
The Virginia speakers were Phillip
Barbour, who presided over the
seventeenth congress and afterwards
served in the senate; Andrew Steven
son, who served from 1S27 to 1834
John M. Jones, who was speaker of
the thirty-eighth congress and died
soon after completing his service, arid
It. M. T. Hunter, who was speaker of
the twenty-sixth congress and after
ward served as secretary of state of
the Confederate government.
The four Kentucky speakers were
Henry Clay, who presided over five of
the early congresses; John White, of
the twenty-seventh congress; Linn
Boyd, of the thirty-second and thirty
third congresses, and the late John G
Carlisle, who occupied the speaker's
chair in the forty-eight, forty-ninth
and fiftieth sessions.
In Henry Clay the state of Kentucky
holds the record for long, service In the
speaker's chair. Mr. Clay served nine
and a half years as speaker, though
his service was not continuous. The
next longest record is that of Mr. Can
non, who will have served eight years
when he yields up the gavel to his
successor next March.
Pennsylvania and Indiana have each
had three speakers of the house.
Pennsylvania contributed the speaker
of the first congress. Frederick A
Muhlenburg, who was one of the three
brothers who immigrated from Ger
many before the revolution, and all of
whom rendered distinguished services
to the country of their adoption. The
other speakers from the Keystone
state were of later date. Galusha
Grow, who occupied the chair at the
beginning of the civil war, and Sam
uel J. Randall, who presided over the
house from 1876 to 1881.
John W. Davis, known as "Honest
John," was the first speaker from In
diana. He presided over the twenty
ninth congress and was afterward
governor of Oregon territory. Schuy
ler Colfax, of Indiana, was chosen
speaker In 1865 and served until 1869,
when he became vice president. The
third speaker from Indiana was Mich
ael C. Keer, who was elected In 1875,
and died early in the following year.
Maine, Georgia, New Jersey, South

The city dads made a good bargain

it for $30 a year. vThey could have
let it free. They could have made a

built the theater and presented It to

lease for 20 years. Instead of 10 years.
You kick because they are going to
let Mr. Fenton move his buildings off

You should he glad they are not giving
him the lot, too.
No, Mr. Editor, if you are poking
fun at the city dads, you are wrong.
They have performed a great deed.
They have taken the city grounds out
of politics. They have modestly seal

For the first time In two years the

"The Monmouth Normal will be a
great factor In bringing this about in
Oregon," he declared.
E. D. Ressler, for several years pres
ident at Monmouth, was given an ova
tion that lasted several minutes. He
dwelt at some length on the local
spirit, pride and enthusiasm that had
marked Monmouth. He said:
We will furnish and have furnished
a faculty and student body here that
has no superior In the East or West.
Oregon boys and girls, when they at
tend some of the larger Eastern col-
eges, always more than hold their
own and this is largely due to the
splendid training they received In the
schools of their own state"
C. N. MeArthur advocated the es
tablishment of three normal schools in
"The passage of the Monmouth bill
means that Oregon has adopted a nor
mal school policy." he said. "But It
does not mean the state will have only
one normal. It means the people are
alive to the necessity of the schools.
Oregon Is a state of such vast area. It
is folly to believe she will have hut one
normal in years to come. Monmouth
is the mother of normals but the time
will come when we will have such In
stitutions In Eastern and Southern

state policy and It must come with the

Among the other speakers were F.

Senator from Polk and Benton. The
Invocation was offered by Rev. Duns

vocal solos by Mrs. George Conkey, of
Independence: Mrs. Allen Clark, of
Monmouth, and Rev. Mr. Davis. A re
ceptlon followed the programme.
Banquet Is Served.
In the morning a sumptuous ban
quet was served by the Monmouth
Women's Reading Club in the historic
old gymnasium of the Normal
grounds. Nearly 500 people sat down
at the tables. The hall was prettily
decorated and at each table were cards
bearing the inscription, "Welcome the
6. S. N. S.; 10361; Multnomah 6012;"
Indicating the majorities received for
the Monmouth bill from the Btate at
large and from Multnomah County.
Following the banquet the guests
adjourned to the assembly hall of the

"Grandma" Lucas was unable to be
present at the celebration, owing to
her advanced age, but she appreciates
the reinstatement of the Normal
School as much as any.
During the 60s the Christian denom
ination took over the Monmouth Uni
versity and the school was rechrlsten
ed Christian College. In 1869 T. F.
Campbell became president of the
school. His son, P. L. Campbell, is now
president of the University of Oregon.
President T. F. Campbell tjyas a law
yer, a minister and an educator. In
all he ranked high, but he was best
known as an educator, and in the
early days, under his Influence, Christ
ian College became one of the most
powerful , educational factors In the

but in 1893 the school received its
first appropriation and was fostered
and developed by the state uncil the
Legislature saw fit to wipe out the
normal schools by refusing to further
appropriate money for their existence.
Once more the people, of this vicinity
showed their loyalty to the historic

For two years the school was finan
ced by private subscriptions. There Is
still a little money in the treasury..
It is the hope of Monmouth people
to see the school reopened next Sep
tember. Whethftf this will be possible
is a question of some doubt. Inasmuch
as the bill provides for a normal
school fund and it Is not fully decided
whether the levy will come from this
year's taxes or next, and there is a
bare possibility that the school can
not open until 1912, although Mon
mouth people believe it possible for
the Legislature to avoid this conting
ency by an appropriation. The state
board of normal regents will have
control of the school. Monmouth peo
ple seem to be universally In favor of
the reinstatement of E. D. Ressler,
president of the school.
The committee that promoted the
campaign for the Monmouth Alumni
Association consisted of William D.
Fenton, Judge Burnett, J. C. McCue,
B. V. Butler, Ira C. Powell and A. C.

day that the committee Is desirous of

to the press of the state for the al
most unlimited assistance given In
