City Superintendent Turner reoeived
Monday a long communication sigaed
by Governor Chamberlain, 6" ate
Superintendent Ackerman and" the
chairman of the Portland Peary North
Pole Expedition, asking that a collec
tion be taken np in the schools of this
city to aid Lieutenant Perry In fitting
out another expedition to try to reach
the North Pole. 8 opt. Turner de
clined to take ep this graft ou the
school children and cou signed the
blanks, to the waste basket, bis action
meeting with the prompt approval of
Chairman Gilkey and the other mem
bers of the board as well as of the
patrons of the school.
Lieutenant Peary has already spent
enough money, contributed by the
wealthy men of New York, in his
numerous attempts to reach the North
Pole to give every school in Oregon
a nine months term, aud now he
wants another flOO.OCO or more with
which to fit out another expedition
aod be has issued a begging letter to
all the schools in the United States
aeking that each child make a con
tribution to the fund. There is ou
practical value to ootne of Peary 'a
North Pole expedition only the glory
that' he would get of being the first to
reach the land of utter doiolatiou.

and Supt. Ackerman that thoy should
endorse this graft ou the school
