December It, 1922 To tbe Mayor and Common Council of the City of Newberg, Oregon. To avoid any possible misunder standing of my statement to the council last evening, 1 think I will give you this summary In writing of that statement. As 1 did not attend your meeting on the 5th, I had no opportunity un til last evening to thank you for your confidence in me as expressed bp your majority vote for the office of city attorney. I am deeply grate ful for tbe consideration given me, but 1 have reluctantly come to the conclusion that 1 am not yet eligible for that office. Section 8 of Chapter I of the City Charter reads In part as follows: "No one Is eligible to any office in the municipal corporation who, at tbe time of his election or ap- pointment* * * has not resided In tbe City of New.berg for tbe three months next preceding his election or w h ich is the h igh est quality baking pow der and alm ost invariably they will tellyoft ROYAL.

C.. Amos C. Stanbrough, superintendent of Newberg schools, gave the fourth of a series of vocational addresses which are being held at the college Tuesday of each week. , Moat of us do not choose our vo cations, said Mr. Stanbrough. We <|rlft into them. In preventing stu dents from wasting too much time in finding their proper niche in life work, the plan of presenting in de tail the duties,. problems and pleas ures of various professions was a good one, thought Mr. Stanbrough. In the teaching vocation there are certain qualifications necessary, if one ts to be successful, said Mr. Stan brough. An optimistic nature, a great deal of patlsnce, self-control, good health .and In a spiritualj sense, the spirit o f fight. The men tal and physical strain Is great, and unless these qualifications are pos sessed by the teacher, success ts doubtful. The teacher has a big responsibil ity, especially In these times, when the foundation of the home la so of ten shaken. A wide training in the moral character as well as in intel lectual ways should be the first con sideration, asserted Mr. Stanbrough. Gas at $10.00 When gas was first installed In New York for lighting purposes, in 1826, the price was $10 a thousand cubic feet, pluw a rental for the me ter and for the fixtures, then owned by the gas company. In 1830 the price was lowered to $7 a thousand and there It remained until 1848. Try a Graphic classified. of the city. Authority for such ac tion was found in subdivision 19 of Section SI of Chapter IV of the charter which gives the Council pow er "to employ an attorney, when nec essary, and pay him for his services" This provision of the charter is still in effect. ______ At a special election held October 21st, 1918, Section 7 of Chapter I of the Charter was amended to read as follows:" - “ There shall also be elected for the term of two years a mayor, mh corder. marshal, treasurer, attorney, engineer, water superintendent affitT a street commissioner, who shall be officers of the municipality. The councilmen shall be elected by the voters In the respective wards which they represent. The mayor, recorder and treasurer shall be elected by the qualified voters of the city at large. All other officers shall be elected by the council, and a majority of all members elected to the council shall be necessary to elect. The council may remove any appointive officer at any time for misfeasance, mal feasance, neglect or In competency in office. The council shall, before removing any such officer, grant such officer a hearing at which be may be heard in his own defense." Only one conclusion can be drawn from te above-quoted Sections 7 and 8 o f the Charter. 1 have had an of- flee In Newberg since September 23 "Speed Counts" Is tbe password at the Baker Theatre on next Monday and Tuesday, when they will show that old-time melodrama, "The Past Mall,” written by Lincoln J. Carter. In the cast are Charles Jones, Eileen Percy and Adolph Menjou. - So fast does the action move that one has a hard time keeping up with the thrills. When the play was first produced on the stage the big scene came when “ The Past Mail” thun dered across the stage in tbe title role. But the camera, handling the theme with a much broader scope, has managed to Include, instead of the one thrill, one dare devil stunt after another, until the audience gasps. Charles Jones, who plays the role of the hero, Walter West, claims that he has no perven. mid this jfte - ture will purely uphold that state ment. It is a melodrama, pure and sim ple. but remarkably well done. Of course. West Is in love with Mary, and she with him. The rejected suitor does all in his power to mar their happiness^ Action first comes with a thrilling steeplechase, where West, on whom all the money is placed to win. Is fouled. There Is action of all aorta Fast horses, fast boats, fast trains, fast machines, and as a fitting climax, a realistic fire. -Through all this storm West wins to success and in the nick of time saves his sweetheart from the burning huildlng. With their troubles past, nothing remains but to live ever after, in their land of fairy tale.

It follows, therefore, since my election is void, that Mr. Chapin may legally continue in that office without the formality of re-elec tion. While Investigating this subject I learned some other things of con siderable interest. Under your Char ter, for «aomptor no specific duties arc irapoaed on the city attorney, no official authority is given ntm, and no right to compensation is ex pressed. As a prospective city at torney at the time I made that dis covery, I was prompted, very nat urally, to look up the law on the subject and I found this: "The power of officers of a municipality depends entirely on the provisions of the Charter and on ordinances passed in pursuance thereof, and 0 ’Cedar Mops Percolators Pyrex Glassware Scales, household Scissors Silver Tableware Steam Pressure Cooker Table Lamps ■ Teakettles Tea Pots W ash Machines W ash W ringers Vacuum Betties uta, ordinance or express agreement authorised by law, a municipal offi cer is not entitled to compensation for official services rendered by him." Consequently, if I were permitted to take the office you tendered me, I might eventually find myself In a situation In which I could not claim the right to perform legal services for the city, or to act officially for In litigation, or to receive com pensation for Mr vices rendered.
