OLCOTT'S TERM OF OFFICE
A news story in Wednesday's Qregonian discusses
the tenure of office of Secretary of State Olcott, and
calls .attention to the provision of the constitution con
cerning the election of the secretary of state and the state
treasurer, that they "shall hold their offices for the term
The bolsheviki are hunting safety in manv sections

Mrs. Nora Withrow, who alleges she is a taxpayer of
Multnomah county has brought suit against the Multno-I pronunciation or names
lTiah POlinfv 'PnTnrriissirtriPrQ -Tnrin R Yrm fnnmai- twirl;
master; E. M. Lazarus, architect, and numerous others
demanding an accounting of all moneys spent in the con
struction of Vista House, at Crown Point on the Colum
bia Highway. She alleges in her complaint that the coun
ty commissioners had no legal power to so expend the
county's money, and she says they were influenced to do
so by John B. Yeon and S. Benson. The total amount de
manded to be returned to the county is $210,215. It is
ducks for the lawyers, but outside of that Mrs. Withrow
will find she has reached a legal Marne before she gets to
her goal. It is claimed County Commissioner Holman
is the power behind the suit, and that his crafty brain
evolved the scheme ifor making some one else besides
Multnomah county pay for the extra frill on the highway,
years.' The author of the story apparently thought he
had discovered something that would make the term of
the secretary of state expire next April, eight years f roni
the date of his appointment by Governor West, Ihe sec
tion of the constitution is quoted correctly, but the author
of the story failed to read another section of the consti
tution ; section 12 of article 11, under the caption ;'suf
f rage and Elections" which provides "In all cases in
which it is provided that an office shall not be filled by
the same person more than a certain number of years
cqntinuously, an appointment pro tempore shall not be
reckoned a part of that term." This settles the matter so
far as Secretary Olcott's term is concerned, and will per
mit him to fill out the full term for which he was elected,
and which .will expire in January,' 1921. No doubt there
are many of the oldline republicans who would like to
see the secretary put out of office as quickly as possible,
but they will have to wait until the election two years
from now to eet a chance at the Olcott job.
There was some question at the time of Olcott's first
election as to whether he should be elected tor a lull
term of fouryears, or for the unexpired portion of Sec
retary Benson s term. Attorney General Crawtord held
he should run for the full term, hut the correstness of
this opinion is doubted by many lawyers. The supreme
court, too, in 1886 in the case of the state ex rel. William
S. Shaw versus Joel Ware, County UlerK oi Lane.coumy,
involving the election of circuit and supreme court judges,
held in substance that "The term of office of a circuit
iudee. under the constitution of this state is six years,
and when a vacancy occurring within the term is filled
by election, the person so elected holds not tor the iuu
period of six years, but only for the remainder of the
unexpired term." This is in direct opposition to the opin
ion of the then Attorney General, Crawford. It would
seem also from the constitution that the intent was to
have all state officers elected at the same general election,
and that the election to fill vacancies was based on this
intent, so only the unexpired term would 'be filled at the
next election after the vacancy, and thus bring the elec
tion of all at the same time again. As it is now the secre
tary of state is elected in an off year, so to speak.
However, the water has run by this mill and cannot
be recalled. If it was a mistake, it seems to late to recall
it now, for it would be much like trying to un-ring a bell.
Another freak weather condition put it in your note

The commercial club is about to launch a campaign
for new members. . It hardly seems possible that such a
move should be necessary when such an organization is
more than ever a necessity. It is the centre of all the war
and conservation work of Marion county and every com
munity movement of interest has its inception there. Now
that it is out of debt, well located and comfortably housed,
the commercial club should never be allowed to lapse back
5nto the condition of inactivity that it has been in at
times in the past. Teople of Salem should make the club
higger and better and more useful from year to year by
.giving it their loyal support and taking a keener interest
in its work.
Sixty years ago today the first message was received
from England over the Atlantic cable. Now the oceans
are threaded with cables and the whole world is in touch
with all parts of itself. It is rather a coincidence that on
this anniversary is announced the perfection of the trans-
over these cables that sixty years ago slowly spelled out
the Morse code letter at a time. Truly there have been
great improvements made recently, 'besides those design
ed for the killing of men.
There are a hundred ways to slack, and each is worse
than all the rest; so place your burden on your back, and
do your stunt with joyous zest. In these grim times em
ployers nti.i the very best their help can give, if they
would ke,p up proper speed, and dodere the bankrupt
court and live. If you don't do the best you can to help
the boss survive the stress, you're following a loathsome
plan the slacker's spirit you confess. This is no time to
loaf and talk, when there are useful things M do; it is no
ume to watch the clock, or ogle all the dames in view.
You may 'have bought a pair of stamps, you may have
bought a bond or three, but you train with the slacking
scamps if you're not busy as a 'bee. This war won't last
a thousand years, it may run down before next May, and
then there'll be all kinds of tears for those who slacked
thejr time away. Your 'boss will say, "Augustus Kelp,
when wartime troubles made me yell, and I was needing
loyal help, you were not worth three hoots in Hannibal,
Mo." And he'll denounce you as a swab, and maybe groom
you with a chair, and every place you hunt a job, your
slacking record will be there. But if vou do vour duty
now, whatever sort of place you. fill, you'll have the laur
els on your brow when we have pickled.Kiaser Bill.

Tli,. "Pood Administration has a big problem to solve. Its dutv is two
foldto wive foods and also to preserve industries.
t One of the hardest problems of the Food Administration is the can.lv
industry us it relates to sugar. ; , ,.l ;
We all know that we must save sugar to supply our allies.
Tho Food administration realizes, too, that tho candy industry is
the 3Sth largest industry in the country, and that it is a highly re-
BTuue industry, proitucinjf an nrticlo of erent food value, and triv
to thousands of people, about 73 por cent of whom
It realizes, too, that the candy industry really uses only a very
snmll part of the national consumption of sugar.
In fnet less than seven pounds out of the 84 pounds (only about 8
per cent) of sugar used annually by everyone in this country goes in
to the tusking of candy.
While out of that S4 pounds less than seven pounds go into the mak
ing of candy; CO per pounds are used upon the tablo in the home.
It is plain to see thnt the chief place to conserve sugar effectively
and easily is right in tho home in the sugar bowl.
Many people who have felt that the way to handle the sugar situ
ation was to put the candy men out of business, now realize that
only a very small saving in the home will do much mor than could
possibly be gained by throwing the candy industry out of business.
Already the cand industry lias been cut squarely in two' ana it is
now time for fair-minded peoplo to know the truth o that great in
dustry may not be completely tuspeuded.
The candy industry uses comparatively little sugar and that which
it .W. use is not wasted but turned into a highly nutritions food pro
duct which goes to supply the natural need of carbohydrates "(bodily
fuel) of al our soldier in France and in tho amps, i,y the wen, wo

- CHAPTER Vn
It was a very brave little bride who
math.- her responses in a clear musical
voice and who accepted the congratula
tions of her friends. As Buth looked at
her stalwart, handsome husband, she
had no thought of fear, no misgivings
as to tfie tuture.
Then at the breakfast, to which only
intimates had been invited, she was
gaily happy. She had trustfully given
herself to Brian Hackett, having abso
lutely no realization of what that giv
V hen the parting" finally came, af
ter the big trunks containing her ex
tensive wardrobe had gone, Buth shed
lew tears as she clunsr to her aunt

father, everything to her. And whom
she had displeased bv marrying Brian
Not that Mrs. Clavbome showed her
displeasure; she was too thoroly a
woman of the world to show her feel
ings. But Buth knew it, and the fact
tinged her happiness ever so little.

But, when, as the train sied north.

room Brian took her in his arms and

him, and that she was happy.
Atlantic City was their mejcca for
their honeymoon. There, by the sea,
they would learn to know each other

Kutn was delurhtcd. She was like a
child in her joy at everything she saw
and did. Brian was delighted to see the
envious glances cast upon him as he
walked beside his superbly gowned
bride. Delighted, too, because she was
so wholly interested in him, that there
was no room tor lealoirsv.
Brian had no faintest notion of what
his bride's trosseau had cost. Had he,
it might have frightened him and tak
en a bit from the pride with which he
ugarded her, and the admiration she
evoked. That it represented far more
than he earned in a year, is a fact
that would have seeme'd almost unbe
lievable to him. Women's clothing,
their cost, was a sealed book to him.
Ho had left home earlv: his parents

he really had had no onnortunitv to

thing from Ruth's dainty slippers to
her expensive hats and parasols.
no, as "ignorance is -bliss'', he wsr
blissfully unconscious of what it had
cost to clothe his stylish wife, and he
walked, or rode on the board walk with
her, as happy as a bridegroom very
much in love with his bride could be.
And Ruth! just to see him, be with
him, the changing colors reflected in

tides as they rolled out and in just

less have asked, had she been question
ed. But, a little before the proposer! tw
weeks were up, Brian pleaded a busi
ness eall and they left for New York,
their future home.
''Time we did, too!'' Brian mutter
ed a-s he looked at his slim roll after
he had paid his bill. "Hardly enouga,
left to get to New York- I should hav
known better than to come here,"
"How I hate to go, dear," Ruth
said as. she packed their belonging
after calling for a maid to assist hec
"I should- love to stay. We must rum
down "here often. You know, I never
have been by the sen Ibefore, and it
"Yes, we'll run down occasionally,"
Brian returned as, at a motion from
Ruth, he fished up a fifty cent piece
for the maid and grudgingly gave it
to her. He must tell Buth that Jher
couldn't afford to give many tips.
Kutn, not knowing the thoughts run
ning thru Brian's mind chatted on un
concernedly. She was all ready, ant
proposed that they take one more tun
on tho board walk before they left.
"AU right, dear, come on.'' And,
linking anus, they walked for an. hour
saying "good bye" to the sea, as Butk
quaintly expressed it.
"Good bye, and good riddance!"
Brian mnttered to himself as h
thought of his deplete roll.

figuring in his mind how muoh longer
they could possibly remain. Ruth was
