la this day and age the character of
the educational institutions, end the
"urrotsuding Influences are first taken
into consideration by the borne seeker;
the possibility of financial sueeess is
the next consideration. . . '
Kalcm, eapital of Oregon, baa gather
ed people about iU ecuter from the
fact that la the past Ste schools have
Wen up with its necessities. Bat with
Balem V expansion, its . schools, ; while
(eling the need, hare sot expanded,
are not bfen enlarged in equal ratio.
TMa ia ra nt Urn TMihli alA1 t
is true of ite private institutions of
learning. This has been because Sa
lem's people hare ia recent rears look
ed too much to the utilitarian, and too
little to the aesthetic.
While neither the utilitarian nor the
aesthetie can be safely forgotten, the
mean between the two makes best for
both city and country surrounding. '
While the writer wonld not advise
Salem to endeavor to lead the entire
.procession with its schools', he certainly
thinks it best to hare them a little
ahead of its needs, all the time, than to
be behind its needs with them.
. Among the institutions that has giv
en Ralem a name in the past, and which
should keep it at the head in the future
is Willamette University. It has filled
a great field ki Salem, and should con
tinue so to do.
Bat Willamette is unlike some other
institutions in this state, organized for
the same purpose that, of giving ad
vanced education. It has uo aid from
th stat or government.
It is peculiarly a Salem institution
and if it holds its position with other
colleges and universities in Oregon, it
will do so through Halem and, Halem'
people. -0 That it has not grown more
rapi-IIy, and tbat it taas not continued
to out distance aid out class its com
petitors throughout the state, is be
cause of its lack of financial aid.
Moner inrested in publie school
buildings and in paraphernalia, and
implements of study, pay large inter
est on the investment in all places. Ha
lem ti busniess . houses derive benefit
from every person who becomes a part
of the population, whatever the motive
of dm taking residence here. Educa
tional facilities bring young men and
young women an'l parents with chil
dren to form part of the urban popula
tion. Lack thereof sends them else
where. Kvery man derives benefit from
increased population. How and why
are so welt wderstood that there is no
necessity of entering into a discussion
- But with this fact before their eyes,
Salem's present populace should see the
: necessity of adding to the facilities of
the Willamette University. The schools
at Eugctie city and Corvallis are going
ahead because thev have money. They
bring hundreds of pupils from abroad.
Halem 'a young men even go away
from Halem ia search of better equip
ped schools.
This is not to be laid to Willamette
University, . for it is doing all it can
with fls present means.
Today it asks for aid to supply not a
luxury but a necessity. Homething that
is a part of its growth. Bomethiag
necessary not only to bring new stu
dents' to . it in the future, but to bolJ
those it now hath.
It comes before' Halem's business
'I erty holders and ssys "Help me, tbat I
may par you1 a hundred fold."
The Medical Department of Willam
ette University requires more room. It
must have a building in which to house
its students, in which to tench them.
It can expect no aid from the state,
timet munt ask it of those who will
derive the benefit.
Since I Mi eitahlishment In 1867, this
'department of the University has grad
uate! 26o doctors of medicine. Among
these are tiames of men famous in Ore
gon. Men whose records prove how
good was thvir preparation when com
mencement day ww them begin their
battle with the world. Not one of them
that does fctot speak with pride of Wil
ls mete Universitv of Halem. But can
t hey continue to do so if Halem does not
aid in maintaining its standard?
Among these men, Dr. W. A. Cusick of
!.:.. : t w Li.i. ik. i a..i

men as C. H. JUll, 8. K. Jesap,"W. 11.

Harry Lane, J. K. Pavton, Mrs, Angle
U Ford Warren, Dr. W. H.'Byrd. its
present Bean, and msny more fully -as
worthy. Of Halem's physicians of to
day, but few do not point with pride to
their "sheep skins" received at the
bands of Willamette University. The
new btiilling fc demanded, or the
growth of the school will cease. It will
not be ' very expensive building, it
will he a sightly addition to the cam
pus; but aside .'from these cousidera
tions its us will be utilitarian. It will
fill a place in the business world, and
if atated above its construction will
wean increased business for the Univer
sity; InrreascJ business for Halem's
merchants; increased attractiveness to
the. seeker for a place to educate bis
children; increased demand for reel
denee property; iucreased ralues of all
fired property.
' There were ten seniors, seven juniors,
thirteen sophomores and fourteen fresh
men hi the classes of 1903-04. Of these
twenty-eight were non-residents.
With a more attractive college build
ing who doubts that the attendance
from abroad would have Wen much
jrreaterf Members of the faculty say
at least it would have been doubled.
People may not realixe what this school
means to this city. The Xcenty-elght
non-resident students must have paid
. out at least 414000 during the year for
the necessities of life. How much
more their presence here brought to Ha
lem in a financial way can wot be told.
But they at least left here in one rear
a sum equsl to the expense of the
lufildlsg. Mid doubling the attendance
at the medical school means increasing
k greater ratio the attendance in the
literary- 'department's. Kvery pupil
thst eomet to the UutversHv leaves at
least half a thousand dollars everv
year. How much it is to the iuterest of
t'llem's merchants and room renters
sad boarding house keepers, street esr
rompaaies; and every one interested in
buwness for the school to have a good
ettendanee is readily teen. But the
fai ilitles for teaching must be thers or
the pupil will have no iodncemrutt to
come. . -- -

should be calculated as a part of the

In the announcement for 1&04, the
following appears which will be inter-t
eating not only to students but to al
who desire to see the college go ahead
"The Faculty and Trustees of thr
Medical Department of the Willamette
University tske great pleasure ia this
the thirty-ninth annual fSLinonncemnt
since it afford us the privilege of re
cording a most successful year in the
history of 'our school.
"In Halem the moral influences sur
rounding the College are good, ehurche
of most ail denominations can te found
finely equipped Y. M. C. A. building,
where ail students can have aece4 to
free readaig room for a quiet hour of
study, or by taking out a membership
they are entitled to all privileges fount'
"Halem being tbe eapital of tbr
ntate. students attending college hen
will eome -in contact with some of th
nromkient and brainiest men of th
state,' and le rurrounlel by an atmos
phere of culture and Intellectual refine
ment' In the State library wilt be
found complete works uposi the prac
tice of medicine, a well as o ther booki
of reference, to which all students wil
have access, free of charge.
"It is now well understood thst thr
remilt of modern medical teaching, ir
comparistai with that of a decade ago
is the placing of the recent graduate ir
a position to cope with the prsctiea!
schooling him no that, when he is sud
denly called in a ease of emergency, oi
is so situate! that he cannot avail him
s'lf nf the helping band of an older
practitioner, he can set with ihtelli
gence and ability. To the elinieaf
method of teaebkig, in colleges of late
years, must be attributed this happy
change. To tho earlier years of strict
ly didactic teaching, are added those it
the clinics and hospitals, and. under tbr
direction ofhe teachers in the variore
branches of meliclne and surgery, he' b
made to evolve his own diagnosis ant1
plan of treatment. Repeated practice
of this sort puts into available work in,'
shape the knowledge of the processes
of disease, materia medica, bacteriolo
gy, chemistry, biology, etc., trained b
the laloTatorlei; and, alove all, fits th
graduate for the practice f medicine
"The members of the Faculty, bear
ing in mind tbe importance of clinics
Instrnctiwo'evote the utmost attentior
to this aspect of teaching.
"Abondant ojtHrt tin! ties are offere-'
the student, not, as o freqnently hap
pens, simply to set?, but to examine p
tients, make diagnose and suggest
"Besides the regular rlinics bdd at
the ! hospitals, students are invited
whenever practicable, to see eases of
interest in , private practice, and te
witpeas and assist in private operations
"The bonrs for elioies are so arrant
ed as to interfere as little as posstbfa
with tbe other work.
The street ears to the different hos
pitals pass directly ia frout of tbe eob
lege building, making all clinics easily
seecsmble to the students."

(From Saturday's Daily.)
Hon. W. I, Vawter and Hon. Hugo
von der Hellon, toth of Medford, aud
Representatives-elect from Jackson
county, were in Salem day before yes
terday, having arrived on the morning
train from Portland, at id departed for
their homes on the overland train lat
night. Mr. Vawter, who is a candi
date for tbe Speakership of tbe IIou
of Kepresentatircs, stated tbat he wss
here on business primarily, but admit
ted tbat, incidentally, he wa looking
out for his interests in his candidacy.
When interviewed by a Statesman re
porter last evening, in regard to the re
port that be bad practically withdrawn
from tbe race and that his defeat was
pretty well eoneeded, Mr. Vawter said:
"However the report gained circu
lation I am sure I do not know, but tbe
rnmor to the effect that I ha J practic
ally withdrawn from the Hpcakershi;
race is an entirely erroneous one for 1
nerer hare bad auy mich intention or
thought since I first announced my can
didacy. "All that I ' have to say is that 1
have been strictly in the race from tbe
beginning aud it is my intention to
tay with it until the finish. I do not
wish to pose at to being too confident
in the matter but I want to say that 1
will come to Halem ki January with
practically a solid delegation or follow
ing from the Southern end of the state.
I have assurance of tbe
support of the members from Klamath,
Jackson, Currey and ouglas counties,
and although I do not wish to place any
claim upon them I feel morally certain
that I will get hearty support from
other delegations such as Coos and
Lake counties, and then I know that I
have friends an other parts of the state
upon whom I do not wish to place any
-laims as to their support. I am simply
resting oa my osrs, or rather saying
nothiog and sawing wood aud letting
the other fellows do the talking .
"I bare jirst eome from Multnomah
county and tbe Northwestern part of
the state, well yes, I might say in tbe
interest o my eampaiyu, and. I must
ay that, while I do not care to brag
or appear In thst light at all. I must
say that I feel very muck eneoursged
orer the way things look to me. I bare
nothing whatever to say a to the csn
didacy of either Mr. (Kay or Mr.
Bailey, both of whom are personal
friends of mine, sud I am certain tbat
there will h uo hard feelings, between
us as a result of tbe fight for tbe ebair.
So'far as I am concerned I am going
to coaduet a clean campaign said I have
reason to believe that they, will do
likewise. : - :"

Tbe electric railroad movement in

Rosedalc people discussed the matter of
tbe Saleni-Liberty-Roscdale extrusion
last night. So there are things ia the

The Willamette Vall-y Electric Rail
road people say they mean business.
They have been doing " stmts of hik
ing' all over the uppr valley, and
the Daily Register says of the men and
their proposition:
"Col. J. F. Wilson, W. J. Wilsey and
J. M Eddy arrived yesterday from their
trip via Florence, to CoosxBay, return
kig via Roxcburg, in the interest of the
proposed Willamette Vallev IIectrie
Railroad, recently rncorjorat"d for one
million dollars, and of which Mr, Wil
son is President. V
'When wen at the oflice of tbe com
pany yesterday, the goitlemen express
ed ihemselvcs as well pbdsel with the
country through which they Lad travel
ed. They were enthusiastic over the
outlook for the Coos Bar country, and
pronounce the route an ideal cne.
' Messrs. Wilson and WiUey have
uow been over the entire route of th
proposed line, which aggregates about
300 miles, including construction on to
Portland. ' '
" 'We are ready to 'build the line,
said Mr. Wilson, 'and the route from
Portland to Coos Bay will bave our
first consideration. We found tbe peo
ple of Coos county anxious for tbe rail
road and bonuses -aggregating 100,000
were offered us, together with free light
of way practically the entire route, but
we started to build the line without
bonus, and that is tbe way it will be
built.' When asked about their future
movemaits, Mr. Wilson stated that the
next step wo uld be to secure the righ
of way, make surveys and build t
power plant. Their engineer is exact
ed here in a few days,cand an esti
mate of tbe eost of tbe power plant
will be made. It is intended that nf,
less than 20,000 horsepower will be used
tbe plant costing $250,000 to . $300,000.
We find there are various place along

quire over five million dollars arid tbe

tere from Eastern parties who are
anxious to buy bonds. The money i"
ready when the time comes for con
struction.' " 'We are not asking anybody f
a bonus,' said Mr. Wiscn, 'but we
want the morel" support of tbe people
in the enterpriee. aud the best way of
getting the public back of us in this
big undertaking is to let the people
along the route take some stock in the
enterprise To this end we have de
cided to put 30,000 shsres of stock, on
tbe msrket, to lie taken by people
along tbe proposed line. Tbe shares
will be $10 each. If tbe people take up
this $.'100,000 we will know that they
are wtth us in an effort to 'develop the
country and revolutionize traffic, put
ting the country forward with a bound.
Our propositim is that six years from
now, or in. 1910, we will take tbe stock
off their band, at par. or let them keep
it, whichever they like. The most of
them will want to .keep it for It w-ill be
a good safe investment. Men of eap
ital prefer electric atock to that of
most any other.'
"Mr. Wilscsi leaves in a few days,
for Prescott, Arizona, to close up a biy
mining deal. Mr. Wilsey will remain
in the city and look after the business
of the company."

following: . .
"The party of surveyors that i

were at work in the vicinity of Cane

confirms the belief of matiy that the
