There has been considerable criticism
rrora various sources on account of the
no."se made by children and fairly weH
gruwn-up boys during the band concerts
tnu summer. It seems the childron or
boys are making ju-st enough noise dur-
ng tho playing to take away the pleas
ure of attending the concert to manv,
yet at the same time do not conduct
thcr.iselves in such a way that would
call for the police. Hence it has been
asked that an appeal bo mado to moth
ers to keep their children quiet during
the playing. If the bigger boys contin-
na to miikii themselves a nuisance, it
is probablo that the police will be call
ed to take charge of them. .

As History Has
In tho event that State Engineer
Lewis resigns it is considered a fore
gone conclusion that Percy A. Cupper,
assistant state engineer, will be ap
pointed to succeed him, as Cupper is
the republican- nominoo for water su
perintendent of the western Oregon
district end he says he can handle the
duties) of the state engineer and the
water superintendent for the aalarv of
the state engineer, which is $3000 a
year. This would result in saving the
salary of water superintendent, which
is $2400 a year.
Mr. Lewis wa first appointed state
engineer by Governor Chamberlain in
j1905, when the office wag created. He
was reappointed, and after the office
became elective, was twico elected. The
