The board recently asked the attorney general's advice and then proceeded to act contrary to It. It has been discovered that 3ome of the publishers are selling books at retail In Louisiana and Tennessee cheaper than- they are sold In Ore gon. Against this the board protest ed. j The companies take the position that they are entitled to get as much for their books, net, In Oregon as they do In any other state and they represent that differences In freight, commissions, etc., accounts for the higher price In Oregon. The board holds that when the contract was made with the pub lishers stipulating that they should not sell books for a greater price In Oregon than is charged, in other states, reference was had to the price the parent or pupil must pay and not to the net price received by the company. In accordance with this view the board yesterday adopted a resolution declaring that retail prices here must not be higher than In other states. The controversy arose over four books. The plane and solid geometry is sold for 90 cents In Tennessee, while in Oregon the price $1.25. The phy sical geography sells for 88 cents in Louisiana, while It costs the Oregon pupil $1. The new text hook on ele mentary agriculture sells for 60 cents In Louisiana and 75 cents in Oregon. The general history cobU the Louis iana boy and girl $1.25 and the Ore gon pupil $1.50. ! Since the text book law and the contracts with publishers provide that these differences shall not ex ist, the board proposes to see thpt Oregon shall buy books at lowest prices.

Joe Gans" new hostelry, the Gold field hotel, built by the champion lightweight pugilist at a cost of $35, 000, was opened last Saturday at Baltimore.

Gans if) now 33 years of age and has been a professional fighter for 16 years, lie retires the undisputed lightweight champion with none in sight to dispute his claim to the title. LISTEN TO THIS. Thousand Will Benefit Statement Marin Is True. It may be that some persons Will be inclined to doubt the statement made by an eminent authority, at a recent meeting, thut a mixture of dandelion, kurgon and sarsaparilla, ho would give prompt relief to any sufferer of rheumatism or the usual forms of backache, caused by inac tive, clogged kidneys, yet many cases of long standing that had been en tirely relieved were cited to prove the truth of his assertion. The same authority further stated that many cases which failed to yield to the healing waters of the famous health resorts, or the usual remedies as pre scribed, salicylalte of soda, potuh, colehlcum, etc. were readily reliev ed by the use of this simple mixture Fluid extract dandelion, one-half ounce; compound kargon, one ounce; compound syrup sarsaparilla, three ounces, t Take a teaspoonful dose af ter meals and at bedtime. A well known druggist, when ap proached on the subject, stated that while this prescription, as written, Is new, the ingredients are continually prescribed by the best physicians, and any good prescription pharmacy has them; they are Inexpensive and harm less to use, and are mixed by shak ing well In a bottle. If the claims, made for this mix ture are only partly correct, it would seem that no sufferer here could af ford to leave the prescription untried. SENDS AGENT TO JAPAN. to Canudiuu Envoy Will Attempt Settle Immigration Difficulty. Vancouver, B. C, Oct. 24. Among the passengers sailing on the steam ship Empress of India for the orient today Is the Hon. Dodolphe Lemleux who has been appointed Canada's envoy to Japan to take up the Immi gration problem with the Japanese government. By sending Mr. Lem leux to Japun and at the same time paying damages to the Japanese resi dents who suffered In the recent riots in this city, it Is believed that the differences between the two coun tries will be amicably settled. , In presenting the case of Canada to the Japanese government Mr. Lem leux will make a strong point of the fact that In urging upon parliament the act of last session, giving the force of Canadian law to the Anglo Japanese treaty of 1894, the prime minister met objections to the clause of the treaty which provides for full right of entry and residence in Cana da to Japanese, by assuring the house that the government of Japan would still be bound to the agreement to restrict immigration to a certain number of Japanese subjects yearly.
