Arraigned by Teacher
Baker Morals in schools, civics
and the great need of a close study of
affairs of everyday life, an arraign
ment of many eviU in present day edu
cation and an urgent demand for voca
tional training were the outstanding
features of the sessions of the eastern
division of the Oregon State Teachers'
association convention here.
"Formal instruction in morals, pious
exhortation, praise of honesty in the
abstract are all discounted or de
stroyed in their efforts on the charac
ter of high school pupils unless backed
by the good example of teacher, parent
and leaders in the public, professional
and business life of the community,"
declared Professor E. D. Ressler, of
the Oregon Agricultural College, in
his address on "Student Honor" before
"Interscholastic contests, where
teachers permit ineligible students to
participate, write the speeches of their
debates, jockey for partisan judges or
yield to the clamor of local sports for
winning teams by running in ringers,
have not only demoralized character,
but have set up false ideals of sports
State Will Sell
Acres of Tumalo Project
Salem The State Desert Land
board has fixed $40 an acre as the sell
ing price of 17,464 acres of the Tumalo
irrigation project. About 6000 acres
have been sold and the board will ad
vertise the remainder for sale about
the middle of December.
It is figured that the money derived
from the sale of the land will repay
the state the appropriation of $450,
000 for reclaiming the land, give a
profit of $5 an acre as provided in the
act making the appropriation, pay in
terest of $31,104.66 on the money,
provide $86,761.71 for refunding money
paid on contracts with the Columbia
Southerif Irrigation company, which
started the work, and leave a balance
of about $40,000.
The material is being shipped and

Battle Against Rabies
Silver Lake That the rabies epi
demic has reached the coyotes of Lake
county, is the belief of several persons
who have killed or picked up the car-,
casses of wild dogs recently in the
vicinity of Silver Lake. At least three
coyotes thought to be afflicted with
hydrophobia have been killed within a
few miles of this town, and the car
cass of another was found in the road
between Silver Lake and the head of
Andrew Canterbury was in a duck
blind on the "SO" ranch when a Bnarl
ing coyote emerged from the sage
brush a few yards away and headed
directly for the hunter. Although Mr.
Canterbury discharged Bix shots at
close range at the head of the animal,
the coyote did not swerve from its
course. The hunter then freed his dog
and fled. The dog won a hard fight,
but sustained several bites and gashes.
W. L. Brown and Charles Wilson each
have shot what they believe to be mad
coyotes within the past week. Mr.
Brown and Daniel McLennon picked
up the carcass of another on the road.
This animal apparently had fallen
dead. Mr. McLennon, who is an old-
time trapper, says there is no doubt
the coyote was mad, as its mouth and
nose were full of porcupine quills, and
no coyote "in its right mind" will at
tack a porcupine,
Ranchers living on the road that
skirts Summer Lake to the east thiB
week fired a fusillade of shots at a
coyote that romped for miles along the
highway. The animal appeared to be
bullet and shot proof and refused to be
turned from his course. As soon as it
would pass one farmhouse the residents
thereof would telephone to the next
neighbor along the wild dog's route,
and thus the coyote's little jaunt was
made to resemble a Fourth of July cel
ebration. At the Robinett place a
small dog took up the chase and the
coyote disappeared into the hills.
Polk County Will Send
Fine Exhibit to Fair
Buena Vista Extensive plans have
been formed and preparations begun
for a gigantic exhibit of Poik county
products at the Panama-Pacific expo
sition in 1915. The success of county
residents in winning prizes at the
State Fair, particularly on livestock,
has encouraged the work of greater
fair preparation. Samples of hops,
gra.n, prunes and exhibits of sheep,
goats and cows will be sent to San
Francisco next year.
Late developments of the sheep and
goat industry in Polk county have re
vealed some record-breaking animals
among the herds. The Angora goat is

St. Helens The case of the State of

for trial here Monday. Smith was
charged with threatening to kill Glenn

"Dishonest politics, cooked busi

plane in family and social life must
share in this responsibility," he said.
"The school, through its parent

At the same time, teachers can influ

by impressing upon the plastic minds
of this school generation the grave
dangers in the low moral standards of

of the project about December 15.
Under a motion adopted by the board
the state will hold a lien on each tract
until it is entirely paid for by the
settler. It is provided that 10 per
cent of the Belling price shall be paid
in advance and 10 per cent yearly with
interest. Persons who clear 80 acres
the first . year will be exempt from
making annual payments the first three
years, but must pay the interest and
later pay all the principal. The main'
tenance charge an acre the first year
will be 80 cents.
Mr. Largaard said the land would
grow two crops of alfalfa yearly and
furnish fine pasture in the fall. It is
adapted for all kinds of grasses, pota
toes, vegetables and fruits, and espe-
ciallly fine for dairying purposes.
Many Ask Water Rights;
$3,000,000 7o Be Spent
Salem State Engineer Lewis says
that during the quarter ending Sep-
tember SO his office issued 173 permits
for the appropriation of water, the
cost of the proposed work being esti-
mated at $3,000,000. The length of
the canal lines will be about 230 miles
and the horsepower about 30,460,
About 13,100 acres will be irrigated.
George W. Holcomb, of Portland,

Canal Injunction Denied.
Hobd River George R. Wilbur, sec
retary and attorney of the East Fork
irrigation district, was notified by
Judge Bradshaw, of The Dalles, that
he had denied the prayer of E. C.
Smith, attorney for the Oregon Lum
ber company, for a temporary injunc
tion against the irrigation district to
restrain it from widening the main
canal of its system., It was charged
that the appropriation of more water
by the irrigation system would crippli
the lumber company in the operation of
its mill at Dee.
37-Year Egg Supply Ends.
Albany For the first time in 87
years, Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Hulburt
bought eggs this week. They have
lived always on a farm and have been
well known chicken raisers. This
week they moved to Albany. They
brought some of their chickens along,
but the hens did not begin laying im
mediately after moving, so they were
compelled to purchase eggs once.

France Gaining Ground;
Germans falling Back
London A dispatch to the Central
News from Northwestern France says:
"The Germans were in great part
driven back across the Yser Wednes
day with heavy loss by the French in
fantry, aided by the fire of the moni
tors. When the French and Belgians
undertook the defense of the Yser they
held it for a week. Then, by sheer
weight of artillery and men the Ger
mans pushed the gallant Belgians
back, but not before they paid the full
price for the temporary gain.
' At least two army corps faced the
Belgians. Their object was to force
them right into France and thus suc
ceed in turning the allies' left. It cost
to prevent the attainment of this ob
ject. "It is reported on reliable authority
that the German emperor had placed
eight army corps in this section of the
field. Their losses have been fright
ful: their successes practically nil.
Toward the end of last week the sit
uation was doubtful; now there is no
reason to fear failure. On the con
trary, first class success may be looked
for which place the Germans finally
on the defensive in the west. Great
progress is being made in the reorgan
ization of the Belgian army."
Three U. S. Warships
Are Blown Ashore
Norfolk, Va. The United States
navy torpedo boat destroyers went
ashore off the Virginia coast early
Wednesday during a severe storm
which continued until at night. Two
vessels, the Burrows and Jouett, were
released and proceeded to the navy
yard here slightly damaged. The
third, the Paulding, still was fast be
tween two sandbars in Lynnhaven bay.
Life savers from Cape Henry made
several unsuccessful attempts to reach
the Paulding, which carries a crew of
84. The auxiliary cruiser Panther was
standing by with a hawBer made fast
to the stranded boat. All efforts to
pull her into deep water were aban
doned, however, for fear she could not
stand the strain.
High seas broke over the Paulding
and some of the crew donned life pre
servers. The gale began to abate at
midnight, however, lessening the dan

By a heavy majority each of the
three officials was re-elected to remain
The complete unofficial figures
showed that Mayor Albee had won by

Dieck and Brewster have been re

An unexpectedly large vote was
cast. Approximately 66 per cent of
the registered voters in the city went

Allies' Victory Forecast.
Paris Ex-Premier Briand, who
holds the portfolio of justice, in an in
terview published in the Temps, gives
his impressions of a visit to the battle
front at Verdun and the frontier and
declares that he broueht back convic
tion, calmly reasoned out, that the
battle will result in a brilliant victory
for the allies.
M. Briand says that the Germans
have been bunded and rendered mal
adroit by the checks they have sus
tained. He found the population of
the devastated region returning to
their homes and courageously resum
ing work, saving what they can of the
crops. The minister of justice said
that he interviewed soldiers in the
trenches and found them full of gaiety
and confidence, not one doubting for
an instant the successful issue of the

Seattle Advices received here from
Wenatchee are to the effect that ap
ples are being shipped out at the rate
of 100 carloads per day to imaginary
buyers in the East and South in the
hope that by "rolling" the fruit they
will be able to find actual buyers be
fore the cars stop traveling. In this,
however, there is likely to be disap
pointment. It is probable that the
fruit will have to be stored in the East
until later, when there may be a chance
to sell. No higher prices are hoped
for thiB season.
Following the success of the first
apple show in Western Washington
Eastern Washington growers, who
have been on the ground, are request
ing that Seattle business men make
plans to hold a show every year here
after. The distributors have pointed
out that owing to the importance of
Seattle as a distributing center, both
as to the Coast and oversea trade,
efforts should be made to exploit the
apple industry annually as a means to
widen distributing areas. Local job
bers declared that between 400 and
500 carloads of Washington apples
would be sent through thiB port before
January 1 for storage in California.
