The conference of business mon, physicians, educators and others on social and moral hygiene, was attend ed by a very satisfactory audience. Mayor Morton was called to the chair and stated the object of the meeting. . Ho Introduced Dr. L. 0. Hons, who read a vory Interesting paper relut Ing to the general BeriouHtiess of private diseases and their effect upon the Individual and home. Dr. W. 1). McNary, superintend ent of the Kastorn Oregon State Hos pital for the Insnno, gave nn epitome of the great per cent that uro con fined In that Institution as a result of unnamed diseases. Dr. Culvln S. White of Portland, spoke at considerable length of his experience, the treatment and evil resolts of contracted and Inherited diseases. He Is a member of Direct ors of Oregon Social Hygiene Society and presented the objects of the so ciety as follows: The Oregon Social Hygieno Society alma to provent some of tho dread conseiinences of wrong sex practices by teaching the nature of sex life de cently, aa part of the common knowl edge which all should have for self-protection. This society emphasizes the belief that girls heed knowledge of Uio du ties of motherhood and of the changes which their bodies must paBs through to prepare for those duties. It urges that such knowledge be furnished In every household, by every mother to every daughter. It believes that the bond between mother and daughter will be strengthened by proper advice about the sex life of the growing girl and that knowledge may be tho means of keeping the girl pure, and of shield ing her from the dangers that sur round all growing girls. Every boy needs definite, decent, understandable instruction In sex matters. All boya have doubts, fears and worries about themselves. From twelve to twenty the boy Is growing, merging from boyhood Into man hood. His mind and body are dis turbed by new sonsationa and new experiences. There are many things he wants to know about hlmaolf, but dares not ask of those older and wiser, because he Is Belt-conscious and ashamed. He should be properly taught, and It Is tho duty of parents to teach him. If parents find It difficult to give Instruction at thla critical period, the Oregon Social Hygiene Society Is ready to help, by means of literature; or, through the AdvUory Department of the State Hoard of Health, boys may obtain personal advice given by carefully solocted mon who have given much time and Btudy In prep aration for thla work. M. E. Miller gave some suggestions on "What Can We Do for St. Helens." On motion of Dr. Gilbert Ross, the temporary committee, consisting of M. E. Miller, L. L. Uuker, Wm. M. YOU WILL HAVE TO HUSTLE TO WIN Plnno Contest Will Hose Woriiiemlny, Mnrrli 2I If, when you do a kind act, you should futally wait for the gratitude, you might thereby miss the oppor tunity of doing another, and falling to get what you have foolishly de sired, Iobo all the Joy of life, or, hav ing got It, lose the other chances of being satisfied. Best keep on try ing, then; what Is done for others you have dono twice for yourself, for what Is your end and object than happiness, which never follows greed ? A piano Is never a foolish posses sion. Every time you spend a dollar, put It some pluce where you can get a vote coupon and then turn it over to your chosen candidate. You won't bo the only one doing this, and how do you know but that your little help will turn tho trick and put the prize where you want It? You people who net out of yourselves once In a while and do something for somebody else, are beginning to learn the true secret of a happy life, and once you get in tho way you will keep It up forever you will speedily see that the mll lenlum Is no fickle dream, but a blessed reality, to be brought about by Just such simple means. No U80 to shout about the virtue of the piano or other prizes. All have become familiar with them. Now Is tho time for Bteady, deter mined effort, the kind that wears and tears and makes character in the doing. Every one et these contest ants, who have been working for the prize, will be the better for tho effort, oven though there is only one piano and only one who can get it. Who Is to be the one? Thnt Is to bo the momentous question. Do they at times see a vision of the dray stopping at their door, the men un load, tramping into the Iiouho with the beautiful instrument, the re ward of their proweBs and endeavor. Hear In mind some of the contestants whom you would llko to see a winner and then go out and work. Remember that eight of our lead ing merchants aro interested in this contest and give 25-vote coupons with every dollar's cash purchase to tlioao who ask for them. PYTHIANS ENTERTAIN Recently Avon lodge, Knights of Pythias, one of the strongest frater nal orders in tho city, made two teams do the Initiatory work the old men's team and the young men's team. To get expert Judgment on the respective merits of the two teams, which held a competitive trial Tues day night. Judge Morrow, circuit Judge of Multnomah county, Past Grand Chancellor Commander Frank 3. Graut, Grand Keeper of Records and Seal Walter Gloason, accom panied by two old time members of the lodgo, Dr. H. It. Cliff and N. A. Perry, visited the lodgo and presided as Judges. Tho decision of the Judges was that it was a tie, which was the most diplomatic Judgment thnt could be arrived at.

The organization is associated with the State Hoard of Health and de rives its financial support In part from tho state. An equally interesting meeting for adult women wag held in the city hall Thursday afternoon, uuder the au spices of the Oregon Hygiene So ciety. The meeting was addressed by Mrs. Lola G. Baldwin of Portland. Her theme was "How Shall I Tell My Child." Her appeal to mothers was: "Do not permit tho school teacher to take your Job away from you; the teach' er'a Job 1b to educate; the mother's Job Is to 'Mother' ". Continuing, the spoaker said: "The best way for a mother to gain and retain the sweet and pure confidences of her daughter is to lot her hear from her mother's Hps tho truths concerning the seorets of 'life', Mothors, do not tell your children lies to quiet them when they ask these delicate questions," JUSTICE PHILIP HANDS OUT JUSTICE Violators of Prohibition Uw Come to Grief Shorlff Stanwood arrested Peter Hanson and Gordon Goheen and they were arraigned before Justice Philip Thursday of lant week. Hanson was charged with maintaining a nuisance, by permitting parties to drink in his place of business. He plead guilty and was fined in the sum of $25.00 and costs. Gohaen was charged with giving away liquor and he also plead guilty and contributed $10.00 and costs to the county exchequer. Sometimes the prohibition law Is Innocently violated. It seems that Goheen had received the UBual allot ment and went into the meat market, purchased bologna and retired In a back room to enjoy himself. This made tho proprietor guilty of main taining a nuisance. R. H. McGruder and Antone Iiricks of C'latnkanle, were arrested on complaint of a representative of the Oregon Humane Society, charged with cruelty to animals by permitting cattle to starve to death. It is claimed that from 30 to 40 head out of a herd of 600 have already died. They plend not guilty through their attor ney, and the trial will be held at some future time. Geo. Fowler of Rainier, was or rested at Deer Island by Sheriff Stan wood, charged with taking liquor to a dance. He was brought before Justice Philip Monday. He plead guilty but would not divulge where ho procured the liquor, and there fore the court placed his fine at $50.45, which Included costs. Sheriff Stanwood is determined to put a stop to the Illicit salo of liquor and viola tors sliould beware. BOYHOOD FRIENDS MEET IN ST. HELENS F. T. Lldyard was the Sunday guest of his brother, W. E. Lldyard, and while here vluttod the shipyard. He wns introduced to Capt. Wright son of Mobile, Ala., who is having a ship built In the yard here, and as soon as he heard Mr. Lidyard's voice, he recognized him as a boyhood friend In England. In their youthful days they were rivals, but it re mained for Capt. Wrlghtcon's brother to capture the girl. Tho meeting, after nil these years, was indeed a happy one. This reminds us that the world is not very big after all. Here boyhood friends meet after a lapse of more than a quarter of a century, thous ands of miles distant from their na tivo heath, clasp hands again on an island in tho mighty Columbia. PRICE OF FISH The Columbia River Fishermen's Protective union liac announced the prices for raw Chinook salmon to be charged canneries during tho season to open May 1, at 6 cents a pound for fish weighing under 25 pounds each, and 7 Vt cents a pound for fish weighing 25 pounds or over. This is an increase over the rates prevailing last season, but the mem bers of the union assert the increase Is warranted by the condition of the market. The prices paid last year were 6 cents a pound for small or cannery fish and 7 cents for larger cold storage, the new rate being an advance of one-half cent per pound. The union has reduced the dividing point between large and small fish from 28 pounds, tho 1915 mark, to 25 pounds. The packers will meet in the near future to consider these prices. FISHING SEASON CLOSED Until May first, when the spring soauon for fishing opens, the fishing industry is closed. Manager Ballagh of tho Columbia Hiver Packers' Asso ciation, states that on account of the unusual high water in both .the Co lumbla and Willamette rivers, that the winter fishing season has not been so successful as he anticipated. The fishing industry means much to St. Holeng and tho Mist hopes for a successful and profitable season when tho spring soason opens May first, REGARDING COST OF HARD-SURFACING (By C. E. Spence, Master of the State Grange). A few years ago the Grange took the position that road building Is In the experimental stage and It was unwise to go the limit and bond fu ture generations for hard surfacing when in a few years we might be able to build a better road for less money. Now at least one of the Advisory Board and he did all he could to further the program of the "State wide Highway Committee" four years ago says he Is thankful that we did not go into the road building business on a wholesale scale till we have had the opportunity of learning from the experience of California. He now ad vocates a concrete or cement base covered with a thin coating of bitu lithlc, not more than halt an Inch thick, and which has the advantage of being easily repaired. This is get ting pretty close to the Grange Idea of concrete roads, but not at the pres ent prices of cement. That must be cut In two before we can afford many miles of cement roads. There Is Bmethiag else we have learned in the meantime and not mentioned by the gentleman, and Which is equally important. Multno mah county paid the contractors at the rate of $1.17 per square yard for two inches of bltulithic on the old macadam roads. Oregon City is hav ing four inches, twice as much as Multnomah county, placed on Its macadam streets for 75 cents per square yard. And now comes Marlon county with a record of 87 cents per square yard for four inches, 15 cents of that is for royalty for the machin ery, leaving a net cost of 52 cents a square yard. In other words, Oregon City get for 37 cents what costs Multno mah county $1.17. Marlon connty gets the same thickness for 34 cents. Including a royalty. Marion county did Its own work by days labor. All contractors' profits were eliminated except the royalty. The patent pave ment people say that the Oregon City and Marlon county pavements Is not as good as theirs. At any rate they use the same brands of crushed stone or gravel, sand and asphalt. One can not distinguish a difference without taking "bltulithic treatment." So it Is evident that the taxpayers of this state saved millions of dollars when they refused to bo carried off their feet with the hardsusfactng and bond ing craze. Score one for the organ ized farmer and laborer. EVERY VOTER SHOULD REGISTER Every voter In the state of Oregon must register before the close of business, April 18, 1916, if he wishes to vote at the Primary Election to be held May 19, 1916. Failure to re-reglster before April 18, will preclude him from voting at that election. And since one of the first duties of good citizenship is to vote, It be hooves every one to have his name appear In the new register. Therefore, REGISTER NOW! and remember, no previous registrations count. DELIGHTED VISITORS Judge and Mrs. M. G. Morrow of Portland, were visitors In this city Sunday. They drove down the high way In their auto. Justice Philip took them in hand and made their visit pleasant and interesting. The Judge expressed a desire to see the Interior of the court house and both he and Mrs. Morrow were charmed with the magnificent view and the convenient arrangement of the vari ous departments. They were also shown through the Masonio hall and were loud In their praise of Its room and many conveniences. In fact, they were much taken with the at tractiveness of the city, the hand some bungalows perched on the hill where Mrs. Morrow said she would like to live, and the grand view pre sented by the magnificent snow capped mountains and the mighty Columbia.

U. a legislative committee was appointed and instruction given Its members to draft and present to the next Oregon legislature a bill placing women vot ers upon an equal footing with men as regards jury service and another measure prohibiting the sale of cig arettes within the state.
