DALLAS, POLK COUNTY, OREGON, TUESDAY, JUNE J5, 1H15.
NEED NOT DIVULGE AGE
NEW ELECTION LAW PLEASING
TO WOMEN OF OREGON.
Number of Members on Board Re
duced From Six to Five County
. Clerk Now Selects.
Hereafter judges and clerks for
county and state elections will be se
lected by the county clerk, instead of
by the county commissioners. This Is
according to a change made In the
election laws by chapter 326, laws of
' 1915. Chapter 326 also reduces the
number constituting an election hoard
from six to five. Formerly there were
three judges and three clerks on each
board. Hereafter there will be two
judges and three clerks.
Another change made In the elec
tion laws eliminates the requirement
that voters must give their age when
registering. This -was very objection
able to many women voters. All that
is required now is to make affidavit
that the voter is over 21 years old.
Varying opinions have been ex
pressed, on the provision authorizing
the county clerk to select the list of
election judges and clerks. The list.
must be approved by the county com
missioners. . One view Is that the
change gives the county clerk a great
deal of patronage, although petty In
nature, and may be used by the
clerk to further his political interests.
Another view Is that the change Is
in the interest of efficiency, as under
the old law the work of selecting the
judges and clerks was largely dele
gated by the county commissioners to
r an employe. It Is contended that
when difficulties arise on election 'day
a county official should be responsible
and be on hand rather than an em
The' change in the law was endors
ed by the county clerks in convention,
; and County Clerk Coffey of Multno
mah spent two or three days at Sa
lem during the legislature working in
behalf of the bill. He Is largely re
sponsible for its passage. In elimi
nating one judge from the election
, board, it Is estimated that at the next
general election over $2600 will be
saved in the expense of the election.
"BATHTUB" IS NORMAL QUIZ.
College Students Start. Novel Move
, For Cleanliness.
The first bathtub census of Mon
muth, if not the ft rat in history, was
carefully and systematically conduct
ed recently by students of the state
normal college with what is presumed
to be a remarkable showing for
cleanliness. It was shown that 42 per.
cent or tiie city s nomes were in pos
sessic hfor the sanitary arrangement
known as a bathtub. The percentage
of homes 'using the tubs was not re
corded by the students with the fore-
, going result. However, the social
survey has only begun in earnest, It
is announced, and ere long Indepen
dence, being nearest to the seat of hy
gienic and bathtubic culture, will, in.

' watched with interest, the horserace
. city having become somewhat famous,
for foamy baths. Dallas and Salem,
too, would naturally fall lntb the
path of the normal ites for an invest!
gatlon as to cleanliness. Should the
girls at the normal be so bold as to
announce their Itinery far in advance
it is a sure bet that Dallas would be
proud of Its record. Dallas people,
while leaning strongly toward the
. sponge bath, the sun bath, and dips
in the placid Rickreall, will welcome
any kind of census that may be taken
by the college students. Dallas fearB

Buell correspondence to Sheridan
Sun: "County Sheriff Orr and fam
ily of"- Dallas spent Sunday trying to
catch brook trout on Mill creek, but
the trout had had. their breakfast
before the sheriff arrived. So after
spending some time without any luck,
he decided to try some other place.
At Rogue river he made a second at
tack on the trout." .
Another Complaint From Polk.
. S. H.- McElmurry of Led ford, a
station three miles south of Indepen
dence, has filed formal complaint with
' the public utilities commission asking
that the Southern Pacific railroad
company be required to Install a spur
or sidetrack at that station, for the

0 Sheridan Sawmill Shots Down.
The closing down of the Sheridan
i.ir ' mills last week threw some 200 men
5 i out of employment at the mill and
I camps, said one who had just returned
from g. be work. The Sheridan Sun
savVat the closing down of the
5 plant puts a large number out of em-
ployment, and most of the crews took
the misfortune with good nature. Two
of the mill crew, the Sun says, who
had listened long to the song of the
saws, fell Into the arms of the muses
with the following which was engrav
ed on a shingle and posted in - the
"We got it at last straight in the
neck, hit in the , pocket with a- big
time check; we obeyed the order of
Foreman Hill and now we are leav
ing the dear old mill. Like sawdust
and chaff in the wind we are whirled
and are now going forth in the cruel
world; we are going forth against our
wish with nothing to do but to hunt
and flsh; where we go we cannot tell,
but the little fish will sure get h--l."
APPROPRIATION BILL FAULTY.
Location of Normal Training Build
ing Omitted From Act.
Although attorneys question the
constitutionality of the act passed by
the last legislature appropriating
50,000 for a training building for
the state normal because the act does
not specifically state where fhe build
ing shall be erected, Attorney Gen
eral Brown has expressed the ODin
ion that this is not a fatal defect, and
work will probably go forward on the
structure after plans and speciflca
tlons have been completed. The title
of the bill simply refers to the Oregon
normal school, the location of the In
stitution being omitted entirely. Lead-
ing attorneys of the state hold that
under the act it would be difficult to
determine where the building- Is to
be constructed, notwithstanding the
ract that there is but one normal
school In operation witHin the state.
A further objection urged is that
neither the title nor the act itself
specifically state Tor what purposes
tne training school building is to be
ORDER DEDICATES NEW HALL.
Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Unite in
The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of
Kings Valley are now comfortably lo
cated in the new hall, recently com
pleted upon a beautiful site in pic
turesque King's Valley. The building
was dedicated on the evening of June
4th In the presence of members of the
order from all parts of the valley,
and it is said by those present that
the ceremonies conducted by the Odd
Fellows and Rebekahs of the home
lodges were very beautiful and im
pressive. Grand Patriarch Andrews
and ' Deputy . Grand Master West
brook of Portland were present and
expressed themselves as highly grati
fied at the ceremonies. The supper
served on the occasion is said to have
been of the highest order and did
credit to i,he ladies who prepared it. i
The O.bserver congratulates the three-
linkers of King's Valiey upon having
built and moved into their new home.
DESPONDENT DANE IS SUICIDE,
Patient at 1 1 wane Asylum Hangs SeU
By strings and Suspenders.
Hans Sorensen, an epileptic patient
at the Salem asylum, on Thursday
bade farewell to earth by hanging
nimseir to the fixtures In a toilet room
of the asylum, the attachments being
made of shoestrings and suspenders.
Having been .Informed that there
would-be no funds available for his
transportation to his native land when
discharged, the parent imparted the
knowledge that there would be little
chance for a Dane and soon his life

way accident at Portland. .
TWO CHARGES AGAINST DALE.
Temporary Insanity Will Be His Plea
When Brought to Trial.
Ie, Dale, formerly a resident of
Dallas and well known throughout
this county, was twice Indicted at
Pendleton last Saturday for second
degree murder, he being charged with
shooting and killing Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Ogilvey, who lived south of
Pilot Rock, on June S, a detailed ac
count of which has heretofore ap
peared, in the columns of The Ob
server. Dale will probably be brought
to trial at Pendleton within three
weeks. It Is reported from there that
he will offer temporary insanity as
Perrydale Band In Portland.
The Perrydale band, under the lead
ership of 8. P. Caldwell, attended the
Rose carnival at Portland last week
and discoursed music during the fes
tivities. Of this organisation the
Portland Journal says: "This band
was organised by Mr. Caldwell In 1911
at Perrydale, a small town In Polk
county, and is the pride of the com
munity. Most of the members are
farmer boys who find recreation in
the study of music during leisure
hours, and that they do so industri
ously was demonstrated by ths splen
did showing made both on the band
stands and in the various parades in
which they appeared."
Fill Your Boxes Well.
The state sealer of weights and
measures has officially ruled that
"berry boxes must be well filled when
sold by the box." He adds; "A well
filled box Is not a box three-fourths
full, but is one in which the con
tents will average level full." The
state legislature of ltlfi passed a law
standardizing the sise of the berry
boxes, snd this law Is In effect at the

about two 'clock In the afternoon.

self fortunate in having H. Ruthven

NEW PLANT IS IN VIEW
GRANGE WOULD HAVE FERTI
LIZER FACTORY HERE.
Agricultural College Experts Give En
couragement to Proposition, and
The Oregon Agricultural college
has undertaken to induce the state
to purchase land in Polk county car
rying Lime stone, and erect thereon a
fertilizer manufactory for the benefit
of the farmers of this and other Wil
tamette valley counties. Representa
tives of ths state Institution have vis
ited the property deemed practicable
for this use, made tests of the mater
ial there found, and pronounce it
equal to anything of the kind in Ore
gon. The grange at Monmouth took
the initiative in' the matter, believing
that the soil would give better results
were lime added. ' For the purpose
of proving out its theory It invited ex
perts from the college to analyze the
soir In various sections of this coun
ty, and also to give attention to Its
requirements. The Agricultural col
lege professors were not slow in say
ing that a time fertilizer would great
ly enhance the fertility of the soil,
and so interested, did they become in
the matter that they have recom
mended to the state the establishment
of a plant not far from Dallas.
It has been figured out by these ex
perts that fertilizer can be furnished
here at $2.60 per ton as against $6
per ton for the Imported article, thus
making It possible for farmers to use
It extensively not only In Polk county
but throughout the Willamette valley.
The grange Is urging that action be
taken by the state without unneces
sary delay, and with the support of
the college authorities It Is not im
probable that a fertilizer manufactory
may be in operation here In the not
very distant future.
GRADUATES WITH HIGH HONOR.
Louis Holslngton Passes An Examina
tion of Note at U. of O.
The distinction of being graduated
with "highest honors In a given sub
ject" will be accorded tomorrow to
Louis B. Holslngton, acting principal
of the Astoria high school, who early
this week emerged successful from an
hour's . oral examination before a
committee of four which applied the
"highest honors" test. Mr. Holsing-
ton's subject was psychology. In which
he has taken all the courses offered
at the University of Oregon. In all
his psychology courses he has re
ceived either 8. or H., the highest
two grades possible. He -received H.
in his experimental work.
Mr. Holsfngton's graduation thesis
was on Eccentric Projections of
Touch," In preparing which he did
an amount of original research work
that Is uncommon for a candidate for
merely a bachelor's degree. His the
sis was as good as those ordinarily
put in for a Master of Arts degree.
according to Dr. Karl Dallenbach, In
structor In psychology, with whom
Mr. Holslngton did his experimental

only one who will receive that grade
in psychology this year.

COURTS DECIDE ON ROAD
YAMHILL AND TILLAMOOK CRE
ATE DISTRICT IN SOUR GRASS.
Contemplate Expending Thirty Thou
sand Dollars to Eliminate Dolph
Hill Over tlie Mountains.
fhe proposed new road to the Til
lamook coast will not touch Polk
county, and the Bentley section will
be omitted from the plan. The coun
ties of- Yamhill and Tillamook have
finally come to terms on 'the proposi
tion, and will each expend $15,000
for the purpose of building a high
way around the Dolph hill via the
Sour Grass route, against which the
Polk county contingent In that part
of the county fought desperately. The
counties interested had both routes
thoroughly Inspected by a competent
engineer, and decided that the Sour
Grass route would be the most feas
ible. This necessitates the construc
tion of four and one-half miles in
Yamhill county, and one mile in Til
lamook county, the two forming i
joint district for the improvement. It
Is probable that the work will not
cost to exceed $20,000, this being the
estimate of Roadmaster Hobson of
Tillamook county. The -remaining
money appropriated for the purpose
will be disbursed In the improvement
of the road near Three Rivers, where
betterments are sorely needed.
The contracts for the proposed im
provement will be awarded in three
parts and the entire distance will, If
present plans are executed, be plank
ed. A sawmill will probably be la
cated near the work, and the plank
ing sawed on the ground. The de
cision of ths courts to eliminate the
Bentley section from the improve
ment Is a sore disappointment to the
ed. A sawmill will probably be lo-
bored unceasingly with the Polk and
Yamhill county courts to have the
proposed road pass there, appreci
ating the fact that this main trunk
line from Portland to the coast would
prove decidedly profitable to them,
not only because of the additional
travel that It would bring their way
but because It would give the farm
ers there an outlet over a good road.
Several surveys were made to In
clude this territory, but the Polk
county court refused to accept them
at this time, not having sufficient
funds on hand to perform the work
this season. It was originally in
tended that the three counties should
Join In the construction of the road,
In which case the Bentley route would
have been selected, as that Is the on
ly portion of the highway that would
be in this county. The state was
asked to contribute $45,000 to the pro
ject, and the three counties contem
plated investing a like amount jointly,
but the highway commission declined
td loosen up this year of our Lord, j
and made only half-hearted promises:
for the future, which put a quietus
to the matter so far as the Polk coun
ty commissioners were concerned.
There was talk of the Portland Auto
mobile club contributing $10,000 to
the project, but this was never put;
before the authorities In snything like j
tangible shape, j
The proposed new road will prob
ably be in condition to travel before;
the close of the present outing season, ;
In which case It will have a tendency
to Increase the number of tourists
that annually visit the Tillamook
coast. Ths road will naturally prove
of greater advantage to Tillamook
county than any other. Ths present
highway, if such It may be called,
over the Dolph hill. Is In wretched
condition, sad It would be necessary
to expend thousands of dollars to
make It even passable with any de
are of comfort, not to say safety.
The toll road beyond Dolph, to pass
over which the traveler is forced to
part with a portion of his coin of the
realm, Is really In the worst shape pf
any of the road, and just why those
whp exact money from travelers for
the privilege of wallowing and finally
miring In gumbo are . permitted to
continue the hold-up even under
charter is beyond the comprehension
of any one possessing human intelli
gence. "One simply disgorges for the
right to pass through a heavily guard
ed gate across a practically Impass
able trail along the mountain side.
The elimination of the Dolph hill will
put an end to the toll gate, which is
a step that should have been taken
FREE HELP TO BE FAVORED.
Marlon County Commissioners to Re
Jcxt Prison Help.
Hard-surfacing of roads in Marion
county is to be done by free labor,
instead of prison help, according to
information received on Saturday.
Polk county, it Is intimated, is taking
interest in the Martin county plans
of hard -surfacing, and will watch the
work of the sister county in the hope
of gaining valuable Information.
The Salem press endorse the ac
tion of the Marion county court In
strong terms. The Journal says: "AH
things taken Into consideration, from
the standpoint of the great need of
employment by free labor at this time I
and the comparative inefficiency of
convict labor as a class upon any kind
of public work, the Marion county
court, did right in giving employment
to free labor exclusively in the pro
posed campaign of extensive hard
surfacing of the Marlon county roads
as mapped out by the county court.
This decision on the part of Judge
Bushey, who is, of course, backed up
by Commissioners Goulet and Beck
wlth, will be received with rejoicing
by free labor throughout the county
as it will provide employment for a
small army of laborers and the county
court will not resort to the employ
ment of convict labor in any capacity
on the work so long as free labor Is
obtainable at reasonable prices. Thlsj
decision was reached by Judge Bushey
after the board of control had assure'
him that the county would be provid
ed with all of the convict labor need
ed at the usual wage of 25 cents per
"While Judge BuBhey Is desirous of
working a saving to the taxpayers
wherever possible he figures that, by
the time the county paid the convicts
wages for their keep, transportation
to and from work and the necessary
guard hire, it would amount to al
most as much' as free labor and, all
other things taken into consideration,
he believes the workingmeh of Mar
ion qunty more entilted to the work
man are tne convicts, wno at the pest,
cannot be relied upon to render a
day's services and there is always the
element of risk of human life to be
taken into consideration in the em
ployment of convict labor.
"Polk county has learned of the
plans of the Marion county court to
engage in extensive county road pav
ing at the minimum af expense and
Is Interested to the extent of sending
the county engineer over to interview
Judge Bushey as to when and where
the first work will begin so that the
Polk county court may be present and
take notes. While no definite plans
have been decided upon or discussed
It is understood that ths Polk county
court also has under consideration fol
lowing the example of Marion county
court's enterprise and will doubtless
make arrangements to put down sev
eral miles of hard-surface roads dur
ing the next year or so."

SCHOOL DAYS ARE OVER
THIRTY PUPILS GRADUATE FROM
THE DALLAS HIGH.
Superintendent Churchill Delivers
Stirring Address, and Mrs. Cra
ven Presents the Diploma
The closing exercises of the Dallas
high school commencement week
were held Friday evening at the high
school auditorium, a large audience
being In attendance. The students
assembled on the lower floor, and
marched to the auditorium to a grand
march played by Miss Marjorie Hol
man. Th'e spacious stage was banked
with beautiful roses and ivy, pink and
green, the class colors, predominating.
The young ladies were daintily gown
ed in yhite frocks, while the young
men wore the customary blue, making
a stage setting that was decidedly
pleasing. The gowns worn by the
girls of the class did not exceed in
price the five dollars stipulated by
them, which may be considered an
economical departure from the usual
custom for such occasions. The au
ditorium was most artistically decor
ated with ivy, sweet peas and ferns.
The commencement exercises were1
Interesting and entertaining, the first
number being the grand march, In'
which the thirty graduates showed
grace and skill. Invocation by Rev.
Erskine, pastor of the Evangelical
church, was followed by an instru-.'
mental solo by Miss Dorothy Bennett,
and a selection' by the Senior" quartet.
Florence Vernon Allen delivered the
salutatory address and Sara G. Toevs
the valedictory. These numbers were
interspersed with a duet by Jack
Eakin and Lucile Hamilton, and fol
lowed by a cello solo by John CV
Uglow. Superintendent of Public In
struction J. A. Churchill delivered the
address to the class, his remarks be
ing full of inspiring words that will
doubtless follow the graduates
through life. - Miss Cartwright and
Miss Irwin rendered a vocal duet, '
which was followed by the presenta
tion of the diplomas by Mrs. J. R.
The Alumni Banquet.
The 'Alumni banquet on Saturday,
evening concluded commencement
week. . The dining room at the Gail

McCoy Man For Governor.
There Is talk In some quarters of
the state of campaigning the Hon. C
L. Hawley of this county for gover
nor at ths next election, the promot
ers believing that he would receiv
greater support than any other re
publican that could be named, not
excepting the present Incumbent.
That Mr. Hawley is peculiarly miea
to fill the important position of chief
executive of the stats Is a foregone
conclusion, and should he whirl his
hat Into ths gubernatorial arena he
would have a larger following than
even his most Intimate friends mttcht
hope for. But what's the matter with
the present incumbent?
