Musical Numbers of Interest Help to
Enliven Occasion and Observance
Is Great Success,
Id spite of the fact that the day had
been largely devoted to a proper ob
servance of the occasion, and meetings
had been held in many places, the ar
mory drew a large crowd last night, the
occasion being the celebration of the
birthday of America' greatest presi
dent, Abraham Lincoln. Arrangements
had been made to have the Willamette
Glee club present, but, for some un
known reason, it did not materialize.
President of the Club Seymour Jones,
after a brief but eloquent tribute to
Lincoln, and an apology for the ab
sence of the Glee club, introduced Jus
tice George II. Burnett, who spoke
briefly but with much feeling of the
martyred president, and laid stress es
pecially on his great example to Amer
icans, an example shown as strongly
and as splendidly in the humbler walks
of private life as well as within the
highest office within the gift of hu
manity. He called attention to Lin
coln's intense love of the common peo
ple to whose service his whole life was
devoted, and outlined his life from the
little log cabin down in Kentucky in
which he came into tbe world to the
White Bouse, where that life reached
its grand fullness, and his great char
acter burst into full bloom.
Following his too brinf address, Miss
Alberta Gilliam, soprano at the Globe
theatre, kindly provided on the spur of
the moment, in the absence of tbe Glee
Club, by the managor of that theoitre,
sang The Star Spangled Banner, tbe
audience rising as the first notes were
sounded, pure and sweet, and hor mag
nificont rendering of the nation's most
inspiring song, and one of the most dif
ficult to sing of them all, was one of
the finest features of the evening.
She was followed by II. M. Irwin,
who was a newspaper reporter in Wash
ington during tho war. He spoko for
throe-quarters of an hour, but, unfortu
nately, bis speech could not be hoard by
the larger portion of tlio audience. Ho
reported Lincoln's Gettysburg speech
for his raper, and told many incidents
of thoso most stirring timos at the na
tion's capital.
Miss Edith Kollngg-Tinrtlott was hear
tily applauded on hor rendering of
"The pride of Battery B," and fol
lowing this IIou, Grant B, Dimick, of
Oregon City, made an eloquent address,
which concluded tho day's eolobrntion.
As time passes tho grandeur of Lin
coln's character and his iimto greatness
became more and more apparent, and
the people on whom ho relied and for
whom he worked so splendidly, pay year
after yoar a greater and more heartfelt
tribute, and Salem yesterday, regardless
of political fnith, expressed its re
spect for the man, and its veneration
for his memory.
Deputy Sealer of Weights and Meas
ures Buchtcl has written to the comity

sity of county sealers making monthly
reports to the courts and the stato de

"I feel that by sending these reports
it will place the stuto office in closer
touch with tho various county officers
and by a comparison of thoso reports it
will ouabln this office to advise with

Cross-examined by Attorney Costigan,
the miners' legal representative, the
witness admitted that the owners have
a tacit agreement among themselves,
though not a regular organization.
He defended the operators' control
of the saloons in some districts, saying
they recognized the miners' right to
liquor, if they wanted it, but believed
that, by controlling the saloons, they
could regulate the quantity of intoxi
cants consumed.
He owned freely that there had been
"a shocking number of- mine accidents

Mrs. Florence Kelly Says It Is Long
Step Toward Freeing Children
From Labor in Factories.
Secretary of Labor to Report Violations
and Prosecutor Must Then Take
Action Promptly.
Washington, Feb. 13. The introduc
tion of the Palmer child labor bill, ac
cording to Mrs, Florence Kelly, member
of the board of trustees of the Nation
al Child Labor Committee, Is a long
step forward in the fight to free chil
dren from factories and send them to
school. The biU, which proposes to pro
hibit interstate commerce in goods pro
duced by children under fourteen years
of age, or by children under sixteen
who have worked more than eight hours
a day, is declared to be the most im
portant of any Bimilar bills that have
been introduced. Mrs. Kelly has pre
pared the following article explaining
why this is bo:
"The child labor bill introduced in
Congress by Representative A. Mitchell
Palmer, of Pennsylvania, an January
2(1, last, is more comprehensive than
the Kenyon child labor bill in which
hitherto I hnve beon dooply interested.
It applies to manufacturing establish
ments, factories, mines and quarries,
mills canneries and workshops. It is
more extensive than the Kenyon bill
in that it regulates the employment ot
children between the ages of 14 and
16 years, restricting their working
hours to eight in one day and to day
light hourB from 7 a. m. to 7 p. m.
Like the Kenyon bill it applies to inter
state commerce.
Duty of District Attorney.
''The enforcement of the proposed
law is made the duty of each district
atorney to whom the Secretary of La-
shall report any violation. It it
quite now in providing that prosecu
tions must be begun when a state fac
tory inspector, commissioner of labor,
state medical inspector, school attend
ance officor or any other person shall
present satisfactory evidence of viola
tion of the law. The penalty provided
m a fine of not more thnn $1,000 nor
less thnn $100 or imprisonment for not
loss than one year or both such fine
and Imprisonment.
"The bill marks a long advance over
the proposals contained in both the
Kenyon bill and tho old Deveridpo bill
becauso it aplins to a wider rango of
employments and to older children (be
tween 14 and IB) for whom it forbids
night work and establishes the eight
hour day. In short, it applies to more
occupations, and moro children, con
tains moro provisions and authorizes
more officials to begin suit upon a com
plnint of moro different seta of people.
Would Not Touch State Law.
'The question is often asked wheth
er an intorstnto commorce provision
would supercodo state laws and munici
pal ordinances. It could not do this for
the following reasons: It can in the
nature of things apply only to goods
manufactured, mined or quarried; it
loaves untouched tho messenger ser
vice, employment in department stores
and other forms of retail trade; all ag
ricultural work such ns cotton picking,
berry and hop picking, weeding in the
beet fields, and all othor kinds of agri
cultural, and horticultural work in
which children are employed in ever in
creasing numbers.
"Such a law cannot interfore with
street work, such as newspaper vending,
peddling, boot-blacking, and sorvice ns
delivery boys on wagons, which have to
bo dealt with by stato laws or munici
pal ordinances. Furthermore, there are
certain dangerous trades which by a
score of existing statu laws have been
forbidden to all children under 1(1 years
or 18 years. The only feasible attempt
to touch upon this Important point by
federal legislation is the prohibition of
work in mines and quarries by children
under 10 years.
"Such a provision is Included in the
Palmer bill but no protection Is afford
ed to children In other dangerous trades
for dangerous machines and various
occupations involving the lives ot
others are not and could not be In
Fail to Enforce Law.
"We have an analogy in tho case of
the Pure Food Law. The states and
cities have never been so stimulated
to enact and enforce legislation with
regard to foods prepared for sale within
their owu borders a:i since the enact
ment of the Puro Food and Drugs Law,
and there is every reason to believe
that tho proposed federal child labor
law would work in the same way.
'I believe that the educational work
of tho National Child tabor Committee
will bo found to have entered upon a
new phase more valuable than nil the
;ood campaigns that It has hitherto
arrlcd on.
States whose statutes are good on
paper, only such aa West Virginia and
the great cotton manufacturing com
munities of the South will receive a

Could a standard be Bet so that a cer

I should like an expression from the
board of trustees in regard to this mat
ter. "The current expense deficit is $25,
500. $2,500 has been subscribed that
could be applied upon this deficit. The
interest upon the deficit amounts to
$127.50 a month, lou will remember
that we made arangementB with Ladd
& Bush, bankers at Salem, to carry us
to the extent of $25,000. So far we
have not needed that amount of money.

any more money, and am even trusting
that we may never have to incerase
this loan,

Needs a Kimball College.
"What can wo do to help Kimball

need of endowment in order to attract
moro students by means of an increased
faculty. Garrett Bibical Institute at
Kvanston, Illinois has over a million
and a half endowment. Drew Theolog
ical Seminary, Madison, New Jersey is
iu a campaign far one million endow

million which they now possess. In
order to meet the demands of thorough
theological education of this day, Kim
ball school of theology should have a
largo increase In endowment.
"Our academy, likewise, gives evi
dence of need of atteution. Two years
ago we had ono hundred and tweuty
five academy students. Last year wc
had sixtyfour. This year our enroll
ment is fifty-seven. If the decrease
continues the academy will not pay its
way. I am strongly convinced that
there is need of the academy. A great
many students have neglected their
early opportunities in this country and
they are often desirous of improving
them. Owing to their advanced age
they do not desire to enter a high
school. They can cuter an academy
without any loss of self-respect. It
might be better for the academy to be
on a separate campus but it is a matter
that will adjust itself in coming years
if we make special effort to build up
our academy attendance. 1 think it
cau be done.
Problem of New Dormitory.
"The problem of a new dormitory
for our college girls is upon us. Wc
cannot maintain our own self respect
or the rvsnet of the public with our
present endowment, unless wv build I

buildings and with our present finan I

could get interest on It from the room

in favor with our students. They are
all doing splendid work. They are
well equipped men and women and are
conscientiously endeavoring to do col

One or two changes may be necessary
in order tq get the best possible ar

touch with them; also sending these
same men to high schools to speak on
various phases of education. Reed
college (and Pacific university have
courses in university extension where
by they give lectures in various sec
tions of the state as they may have
opportunity. Those institutions hold
conventions and spend a great deal of
money in attracting the attention of
the public. Since Dr. Todd left us we
have no special worker in the field.
My judgment is that we ought to have.
I am also profoundly convinced that

Local Dealers Think There Should Be
Better Movement of Product to Get
Market on Basis.
New York Is Claimed to Have Best of
- It in Prices, While Coast Is Not
Marketing Much.
Procrastination on the part of the
hop growers in this vicinity will eventu
ally hammer the market price down to
a point, and then knock the point off,
according to several local dealers. They
say that there must be more movement
in the market. In other words, it is be
lieved . the growers have got fo let
loose within a short time or the prices
will travel down so fast that all the
bolstering up that can be done by any
combination will not have any effect in
saving the man with the 1913 crop on
If what certain local dealers say is
true, hopmen in this state will never be
able to obtain the actual value for their
hops until they give the market an op
portunity to settle down upon some
definite basis. They declare that the
continually fluctuating condition of the
market has a great tendency to create
friction among the growers and the
merchants with the result ' that the
former is not willing to be satisfied
with the exact value price, while tbe
latter become obdurate and refuse to
halt any losses the market may suffer.
Build Should Move.
Whil a few short sales now and then
relieve any stupid condition in the mar
ket, no value basis can be arived at
until there is a general movement of
the crops on hand, say those interested.
It is predicted that, in the event the
bulk of the crop on hand now would
begin moviBg briskly, the grower would
soon realize just exactly what his pro
duct is worth, and consequently get a
better price than by holding np and
fighting shy of the different prices be
ing offered at the present time, some
of which are fair, while the majority
underestimate the hop value.
A market war between different hop
localities is apparent now, according to
reports coming from California and the
eastern states. It is claimed thai New
York is enjoying better prices than the
west, and, in order to bring the big buy
ers to time, the western growers are
taking their crops off the market, with
the result that it is hardly possible for
either the small grower or the small
purchaser to determine exactly the ac
tual base upon which to set the price.
