Last i night, a young couple in the first ! row kept jabbering, this being es pecially pronounced when Miss Brownell was at work The young actress became exceedingly annoyed and like a true artist proceeded to shame the offenders. She was in i such a high pitch of excitement at j the end of the second act that she had to be taken from the stage to her dressing room and when the third act opened, was unable to be on the stage as required when the curtain went up. Sh3 was barely able to finish out the play, the other members being compel ed to change the dialogue about to fit the situa tion. It was noticeable to the audience at the drop of the fina curtain that Miss Brownell was ill and as the curtain was lowering, she was seen to swoon. Taken frori the stage, she became unconscious before the dressing room was reached. Physi cians were called and the actress was removed to her hotel. She had sufficiently recovered this morning to be able to leave with the company. Four per cent interes: paid on sav ings accounts with ;he Columbia Valley Bank.

CITY NEWS AGENT FOR ROYAL WORCESTER CORSETS LORTON MAY BE BOARD OF CONTROL GOVERNOR MEAD, IT IS SAID, WILL SUGGEST SUCH A PLAN TO COMING LEGISLATURE — OFFICIAL WOULD MAKE OLYM PIA HEADQUARTERS — GREAT SAVING IN EXPENSE. Special to the World. OLYMPIA, Jan. 7. —Eugene Lor ton, Cosgrove's choice for member of the state board of control, may be the entire board if the coming legis lature follows the suggestion Gover nor Mead will make in his message and abolishes the present board to place the entire power in one officer. Governor Mead first suggested this plan some time ago in a tentative way, but since he has gone into the question more thoroughly he is now quite convinced such a change will be a step forward. The absolute fixing of responsibil ity in one individual executive Is the chief argument the governor ad vances for the change. Economy is another ground. An objection that has been raised to the change which is that it will do away with the present bi-partisan ship of the board, the governor ex pects to meet by his other plan to place the state instituitons under civil service. Under the present law one mem- I ber of the board of control has to I visit every state institution at least I once each month, irrespective of ; whether anything there demands his attention or not. Every fourth | month all three members of the board have to visit each institution jand quarterly also the entire board has to go to Walla Walla to attend sessions of the state prison board. The governor argues that if the , board is to act as a unit, why have three segments of such unit. He in , sists the board has purely executive duties to perform, has no judicial i functions, and that one man could 1 hire a superintendent, buy supplies ion bids, let contracts for buildings ;and perform the other duties just as I well as could three men and in the case of the one man there would be : no divided responsibility. It is considered that the mandat- . ory requirements of visits to each Institution each month could easily! degenerate into a series of practic- • ally social calls upon the several su-! perintendents and that while mem bers of the board are absent from i Olympia matters of the utmost im portance demanding prompt atten-i I tion might come up and loss to the j state follow because no one was j I there with the power to act on them. ■ The governor's plan has not been entirely worked out in detail, but generally it seems to contemplate ; that the executive officer who takes | the place of the board shall be in i Olympia practically all the time, the j | traveling to be done by some sub- \ ! ordinate. Under this executive of- j ficer will be expert employes includ-; j ing, for instance, a competent pur-1 chasing agent, who will attend to | the buying of supplies, and an ac j countant who will have supervision over the books of all of the insti | tutions and financial reports there ! and of the records of the board at i Olympia. Possibly the office employes of the board will include an expert steam engineer, who will have charge of the supervision of the heating ap paratus at the several institutions, and an expert carpenter and build er, and an expert plumber, who will similarly supervise work in those j lines. These will be all under di rect supervision of the head of the office. This plan with a system of weekly detailed' reports will, in the opinion of the governor, give the Olympia of fice perfect control of all the insti tutions, result in absolute harmony of work between the institutions and generally be more satisfactory and I economical than the present scheme. He will suggest the change in his message to the legislature. If it is i I adopted it is possible Governor Cos | grove will give the position to Lor- j ton, although the lack of experience of the latter in such work may make, ; a change in that appointment.
