That Promise to Obey
The supreme legislative body
o f the Episcopal Church, the
General Convention, opened its
sessions, this week, at Detroit,
Michigan. Among the proposals
to be submitted to it, is the elim
ination o f the word obey in the
as a clergyman o f the Episcopal
Church, has defended its use and
retention, on the ground that the
service sets forth the Scriptural
ideal o f marriage and, the rela
tive duties o f husband and wife.
Obedience on the part o f the lat
ter, is the natural'response to the
precedent vows pledged by the
husband, and is only o f obliga
tion when he fulfils first his
promises to her.
the family is the norm from
which the state has been devel
oped, so that if there is no final
authority in the family there is
none in the state, except by ar
o f such a lack in the state, breeds
confusion and anarchy. It is to
be feared that the demand for
the elimination o f the vow of
obedience, is due to the preva
lent disposition to reject authori
ty o f any kind, which is being
manifested now in its logical out
come by the Bolsheviki.

had no voice in the dispute. This
shows that the strike method,
what ever may be said for it

injustice. This gives ground for
legislation making it a crime.

New Road Districts
The eleven districts outlined by
the county court , conform to the
■ plans made at the meeting last week.
These do not include the incorpor
ate towns within the limits of the
districts as they separate districts
under the state law. The districts in
a general way include the following:
District No. 1— Combines districts
1, 38, and 47, all nortli of the Clack
amas and east of the Willamette,
with a valuation of $3,646,000.
This is the largest in the county, but
as nearly all the main roads are
paved the district will not have roads
coming under the bonding issue.
District No. 2 — All of the territory
in the county west of the Willamette
river, the valuation being $2,860,-
District No. 3— Includes the en
tire north boundary of the county

tory in district 1, and takes in about
half of the territory north of the
Clackamas, with a valuation of $2,-
District No. 4— All territory lying
south of district 3 to the Clackamas
river, valued at $1,000,000.
District No. 5— Territory south of
the Clackamas river, including that
tributary to the Logan and Spring-
water road. Valued at $1,4 00,000.

As will be seen from its ad
vertisement, the agent o f the
Henry VVeinhard Co. will be in
town all day Monday, at R. G.
Merehbank’s, for the purpose o f
buying cull apples in large or
small lots. This will be a good
opportunity for those who have
apples to sell, which are not
good enough to pack in boxet
for export. This firm has most
entreprtsingly met the changes
effected by prohibition and has
turned its attention to making
all kinds o f soft drinks instead
of beer. The agent informed us
it was doing about as much
business as ever and when its
equipment is fully installed, ex
pects to do a good deal more.
