Thu meet Inn was preiilded over by
P. K. Jonea, and after a ahort mu
leal program. In which Mrs. I'ad
dock rendered a beautiful Vornl aolo,
the meeting waa addressed by Col. K
llofer of Kalein. The leading
thotlKhta of hla talk were the lieces
ally of the establishment of a union
high achool at till time between In
dependence and Monmouth; that It
would make an educational center In
thla neighborhood and prove of
Kreat benefit to the Normal achool
at Monmouth. It would make posi
tions for normal graduates as high
achnola should be presided over by
xradiiatua from the iioriuul. He ci
ted the fact that there la a law on
tabllahment of union high achoola.
He aald that the "tendency over
the I'nlted Slatea la larger dls
trlctH, belter achoola and more thor
ough equipment" and that thla atate
Ja many yeara behind other Btatea In
the matter of achoolliiK facilities, and
that the greatest drawing card of a
community la lla achoolH. That la
what the high achool would mean to
Independence and Monmouth. -
In hla talk Mr. K. W. Kirk aaid
that the dlstrlcta of the atate are
too small to undertake individual
high achoola and that it Is essential
to unit to aecure the privileges of
high achoola. The union of email
districts would mean larger appro
priations and larger numbers of pu
pils. He cited the fact that educa
tional :ln(tltutlona are first In im
portance in a community. They
bring new settlers, all of better citi
zenship. Eugene and Corvallis are
much talked of on account of fheir
educational advantages and the good
advertising they are getting- is in a
sense due to their educational in
etltutlona. Better graded achoola will
.result from the establishment of a
union high school here.
.Prof. Ressler, talking of distances,
said that a good bicycle path could
be used by the pupils the year round
in attending from a distance. He
cited the schools of Eugene and Cor
vallis as .their biggest assets and
that jthe establishment of a union
..high school near here would greatly
.increase the attendance at the nor
mal .school at Monmouth, and would
give a reputation to this community
,as an educational center, He said
that the normal does not serve all
ithe needs of this community, that a
.high school would prepare the pupils
.for entrance to colleges. The
.tabllshment of a high school here
would .tend to unite the communities
tof Independence and Monmouth, giv
ing them joint interests.
Mr. Starr said that two years ago
.he canvassed the county trying to
get established a county high school
but that -.the people were, not in favor
of it. He is of the opinion that a
central high achool is not best for
.a county. The union of a few dls
. trlcts .for high schools ; appealed to
Mr. Starr as a good thing. In most
;all cases .the pupils could walk to the
.school from their homes, He also
called attention to the county high
school fund which could be diverted
-to the union school if established
here and that considerable revenue
would ibe derived from tuitions from
outside pupils. Union schools would
result '.in fewer teachers and larger
attendance and would attract favor
able attention of homeseekers In and
outside the atate.
J. H. Hawley of Monmouth also
.addressed the meeting comparing
early day educational advantages
with (those of the present day and
talked of aliat the union high school
would mean to us at thla time. II

question of whether Independence U: 30 "Young Men of Today," Rev.
would have the right , to open up sa- c A phirJbg
loons under the decision rendered
in the Medford case. We have com
pared the independence charter as
amended in 1905 with the one that
it amended in 1903, and find that
there is very little, If any, difference
in the language of the two acts. The
last charter bill for Independence is
in no way clear in showing that it
intended either by implication or di
rectly to repeal the local option law,
or any state law, as lit the Medford
9( t. In fact it looks very much as
though It would come under the
court'a idea of being absolutely a re-
enactment of the former sections of
the Independence charter. The re
pealing clause in both acts of 1903
and 1905 are the same exactly as to
every word therein. In the Medford
charter, which was entirely different,
it clearly expressed the intention of
the legislature to amend In this re
spect. "Therefore we have come to the
conclusion that the chances of open
ing would be very meagre, and have
advised you accordingly. Of course,
there Is a chance, but we do not

CAPT. PATRICK REVEALS PLOT
Ca'pt. James P. Patrick of Des
Moines, Iowa, who is here visiting
relatives, is authority for a statement
which reveals a plot to defeat the
popular will in Oregon in the matter
of electing a senator by the direct
vote of the people. Riding on a
train entering Portland he overheard
a couple of Portland politicians talk
ing about the matter, and being a
stranger, he did not realize the sig
nificance of the matter until relating
It to friends in Salem. It was no
more nor less than a plan, as talked
by the Portland men, to "the effect
that Governor Chamberlain is to be
indicted for taking salary in violation
of the constitution Just before the
legislature meets. The Oregon con
stitution fixed the salary of the gov
ernor and other atate officials at a
ridiculous figure, and some years ago
after several state campaigns the leg
islature passed a flat salary law giv
ing the governor $5000 a year and
Representatives of the special train
were very much gratified at the rep
resentative gathering at Indepen
dence. They pronounced it the lar
gest attendance of any place along
the line. Farmers everywhere have
shown a great deal of Interest and
the demonstrations are of much value
to them. Mr. R. B. Miller was de
tained on other business and was
not permitted to be present at Inde
pendence. With the train were R,
L. Fields, superintendent of the
Southern Pacific lines in Oregon;
G. L. Anderson, private secretary to
Mr. Miller; A. A. Morse, a special
representative of the company; H.
A. Hlnshaw and C. A. Malboeuf, trav
eling freight agents of the company;
Dr. Jas. Whithycombe of the Oregon
Agricultural College, and a number
of members' of the faculty. The dem
onstration train was furnished by the
Southern Pacific Company to the Ag
ricultural College for the purpose of
the demonstrations. The motto in
the demonstrations has been "Better
farms and better tilling."
There were seven cars in the
train, each different division of ag
riculture being demonstrated. In the
car devoted to dairying there were
two cows, one Jersey and one Ayr
shire, housed in modern stanchions
or stalla. The general care of the
dairy cow-was demonstrated with re
gard to feeding, milking, housing and
general care. The Jersey cow in
