Following are interesting excerpt from a public Hta lenient aunt out by the University Alumni association In the IntereHt of the University of Ore gnn appropriation which will be voted upon ut the coming June elec tlon: To tho Voter of Oregon: The last session of the Oregon leg islature passed a. bill appropriating $125,000 annually - for the support and maintenance of the University of Oregon, for keeping buildings, grounds and the other property there of in repair, and for the construction of buildings, for the purchase of land, apparatus, library books and supplies. A referendum was Invoked upon the bill, so It will not become a law until It Is approved by a majority of the voters of the state at the regu lar election on June 1, 1908. The Alumni of the University of Oregon Usue this statement to the voters of Oregon In the confident hope and be lief that careful consideration of the facts will Induce them to vote "yes" on the ballot and convert the bill Into a law. Unlvcrwlty AtU-iMkmoc Iiicrcancs. The university, along with the rest of the state, has Just entered upon a remarkable period of growth. In every section of Oregon there are being established high schools from which the sons and daughters of the people are finding the r way in steadily Increasing numbers to the halls of tho university. The attendance has doubled since 1901 and has increased 23 per cent since last year, despite the referendum and the temporary crippling of the Institution. There are now 400 stu dents In the departments at Eugene, exclusive of music, and a total en rollment (Including the professional schools) of 600 students. It !s rea sonable to believe that the rate of Increase will be still more rapid dur ing the next few years, owing to the fact that tho number of high schools Is rapidly growing and a large per centage of their graduates are find ing their way to the unlvers'ty. Orvgoti Aprop1intloii Smallest. It la a lamentable fact that the University of Oregon Is now receiv ing the smallest appropriation for maintenance of any state university In tho Union. The present appropri ation from this state amounts to 147,500. In addition to this, the unl versity receives about 112,000 a year from Interest-bearing funds and reg Istration fees. rne university or Washington re ceives $200,000 per year (exclusive of buildings) for niMintenupce; the Unl vers'ty of Idaho $71,150; the Univer sity of Montana $74,550; the Univer sity of Colorado, $145,000; the Uni versity of Nevada, $85,000; the Uni versity pof Iowa, $230,000; the Uni versity of Wlsconxin, $721,000; the University of Nebraska. $235,500; the University of California. $558,035. Many of these states are also spend ing large nunis for build ngs and Im provements. The last legislature of tho state of Washington appropriated $600,000 for new buildings at the University of Washington. Besides these large sums spent for the -support of their universities the people of Washing ton, Utah, Colorado and Montana are supporting their agricultural college In a most liberal manner, and the people of Colorado and Montana are each supporting a state school of mines. Scale of Salaries low. The scale of salaries at the Uni versity of Oregon Is lower than that of a great majority of state universi ties. Tlie sulary of the president Is $3000, as against $10,000 at tho Uni versity of California, $4500 at the University of Washington, $3600 at the University of Idaho, $4000 at the University of Montana, and $5000 at the Oregon Agricultural college. The maximum salaries paid to pro fessors at the University of Oregon is $2000, as against a standard uni versity salary of not less than $3000. Only e'ght professors receive the fufl salary of $2000; nine receive $1600 per year, and the remaining members of the Instructional force receive sal aries ranging from $1200 to $300 per year.

That the dance In the parlor, under proper conditions and In the presence of the Barents a reliable chaperon, Is not essen tially evil Is the opinion of Rev. M. Matthews, given In a sermon at the First Presbyterian church Sun day night. He said, however, that the public dance hall Is a menace to the morals, to health and to life Itself. He said while the private and re spectable dance muy be Indulged In without Injuring the participants or making them amenable to any hu man or divine law, It adds nothing to spiritual growth, nothing to intellec tual development, and should be dis pensed with by the self-sacrificing Christian for the benefit of his soul. He said the wait Is not the most graceful form of dance and suggest ed that some other form be substi tuted. "In beginning this series of ser ies of sermons on 'Drawing the Line every phase of Christian conduct and relationship will be discussed. "There Is a line drawn by the na ture of things; there U a line drawn by the proprieties of life; there Is a line drawn by the eternal principle of right. Of course the eternal principle of right fixes the boundaries of all theoe lines, because expediency, pro priety and nature must be governed by the everlasting laws of righteous ness. . "It would be well for every one to aJnill the existence of the eternal law of right. Sin Is not a relative term; It Is the eternal principle of evil. Therefore, sin, as a dominant force, Is ever present, influencing and co erclng men to violate law." IDAHO USES NATIVE COAL. Cein State Hum Extensive Deposit- Which Arc Reins Opened. The Horseshoe Bend coal company has arranged to place In the market some of its coal, says the Boise Capi tal News. A load of It, the fiwt In any considerable quantity to be brought In, reached here today from , the mine for the Boise Gas company. There are large quantities, of he coal already uncovered.- The vein1 has been traced for more than a mile j and a half In length and for more j than three-quarters of a mile In j width. Six distinct veins are visible In this distance. The one from which coal Is now being taken Is six feet in width, much wider than are many of the richest veins of the Pennsylvania coal fields. j The coal burns readily and gives i Rood heat. A small quantity was ; burned In this office today and the ; results were beyond expectation. " 1 Hi Henry, who Is principal owner of the stock of the company, has , great plans In view for bulld'ng up i Industries at Horseshoe Bend. He ' expects to put In a large gaB plant j and pipe the gas to all the surround ing points Including Boise, which he believes will be cheaper than any! other method of handling the pro- j duct. He also expects to have estab- ' lished coking ovens to use up the product and smelters for the coke and ; to handle the ore at Pearl and otner points.

At 2 o'clock this morning the mob, which It is alleged was formed of sympathizers of the move In favor of opening gambling, had not made an attack. The regular police officers were stationed at the printing office and It Is 'this precaution that nipped the move In the bud. For three months Wardner has ex perienced a redhot fight over the gambling question, the News taking the antl-gambllng side and support ing H. W.

"And she likes you?" "Of course, she does." "Did she ever say so?" "Many a time, my son." "Did she marry you because she loved you?" "Certainly, she did."
