An unsieued communication
on suicide has come to this
paper, and therefore cannot be
printed even if we considered
the discussion profitable. The
' writer presents an argument to
prove that the act mav not be
criminal or cowardly but may
even reauire considerable cour-
There is an evident sincerity
in the tone of the article which
will perhaps justify the com
ment. The reasoning is fairly
correct, but the premise is that
"life is no longer worth living,"
which is false, lor no one in a
morbid enough condition to con-
template so rash an act can be
in a position to know all the
facts and form a -correct judg
ment as to whether me is
worth living. It is inconceiv
able to any well balanced person
that a brave man could turn
his back on his troubles and
forsake his friends and depend
ent relatives by taking his own
life. It is most cowardly to de
sert in the presence of danger.

SENATOR MILLER'S BILL
UWd Abolish All But One Nor
mal School And Make It
A Better One.
Senator Millar of Linn county
And reDresentative Caldwell of
Yamhill have introduced bills in
the legislator having for their
object the reduction of the num
ber of Normals receiving state imp-
port Senator Miller would tool-
Inh !1 hut nn Normal, the one at
Monmouth. Representative Cald
well, all but two, the oge at Mon
mouth and one at W eston. sen
ator Millers argument is entitled to
the serious consideration of every
advocate of Normal school instruct
ion at state expense and every tax
payer in the state.
"The maintenance of four State
Normal Schools in Oregon is an in-
ustice to the people, because it is
a waste of .monev." ears Senator
Miller. "There is economy in con
centration, and we would not only
save money by maintaining only
one such school, but could furnish
Normal students a much better op
portunity to secure good education,
rf we had only one Normal to sup
port, we could equip it in first class
stvle and mate it compare favor
ably with any in the United States.
As long as we divide our appropri
ations none of th schools will be
equipped as they should be. ,
"In the last ten years we have
spent $375,000 for Normal schools,
and at the last session we appro-
pi iated f 83,000 for those education
al institutions. At Dram, Ashland
and AVeston we spent 160,636,

fact, the only excuse offered for
euicide is mental aberration or
temporary insanity, and only
under- such circumstances is
any sympathy properly felt.
v. Some courage is shown by
battling manfully against ad
versity resisting the impulse to
give up the struggle. Every
cloud has a silver lining.
While looking out for new
commissions to create and
searching for new duties for
commissioners already in ex
istence, the legislature should
not overlook the quality of coal
oil or kerosene being furnished
the people of Oregon. Much of
the oil being dealt out to the peo
ple at 20 cents a gallon, is little
better than muddy water. It
might be considered unkind by
the Standard Oil Company, but
that corporation or any other
corporation that solicits the
peoples money should be re
quired to give oil that will burn,
in return. Let the legislature
enlarge the scope of Dairy and
Food Commissioner Bailey and
provide him with a test guage to
drop into Standard Oil cans

furniehing instruction at those
three schools for perhape 500 stu
dents. I have collected figures
which show that if the stale were
to abandon theEe three schools we
could pay the railroad transporta
tion of the students to the Normal
School at Monmouth, increase the
faculty of that school as much as
necessary, and still save $40,000.
This is worth considering.
"As a matter of fact, these Nor
mal schools are doing a large
amount of eighth-grade and high
school work, for which the state is
paying. In the four Normal
schools of this stale there are 630
students and only 289 of them are
doing Normal School work. I see
no reason why the state should
provide common schools or high
schools for a few communities at
the expense of all the people. If
the state must maintain a Normal
School, let us have only one and
that one doing only Normal School
"Here is a list of states that
have only one Normal School, and
T think when our population of
413,000 is compared with theirs it
should be apparent that one Nor
mal is enough for Oregon:
"Some of our
buildings were given to the state by
local educational institutions, and
when the state ceases to use them
for Normal School purposes it
will be all right to give the build
ings back to the several commu
nities as local High Schools.
Where the buildings have leen
erected at etate expense I believe
the property should be turned over
to the common school fund."
