"Thanks," answered Gail, mechanically placing the receiver in its cradle again. She'd quite forgotten she had left word at the desk to be called. She'd been so afraid she might oversleep. Well she needn't rise yet, for she'd have plenty of time to get dressed have breakfast and be at Ma-dame's by half -past eight. "The sun was shining brightly, and already the unfamiliar noises of the city were drifting into her room. There was the screech of the elevated as its serpentine train swung around a curve, the throbbing of innumerable motors as a never-ending stream of cars swept along the tteet. Hundreds of men and women were already on their way to work. How different it was from Mer-rywood Hall, thought Gail, brushing her sunny hair. There on a May morning like this the singing of the birds would be awaking her former companions. Kicking off her green velvet mules, she stepped into a pair of smart street shoes. Then, still wearing her green seersucker bathrobe, she walked toward the window, and looked down on a kaleidoscopic view of slate roofs, rows of old brown sandstone houses, tall loft buildings, and many storied apartment houses separated by deep canyons where gray streets and traffic laden avenues meandered through the city's maze. Gail breakfasted alone, for she was not yet acquainted with any of the young business women who comprised the population of the tall clubhouse. At the tables around her little groups of girls were coming and going, pausing here and there to call a greeting to new arrivals or wave gaily to others in more secluded comers of the large dining room. Gail felt thrilled. The atmosphere was 'Girls, this is our new designer, Miss Everett," Clytie announced. Then turning to Gail, she declared, "I don't believe you'd remember all their names even if I told them to you, but you'll soon learn who's who. Oh, you'd better meet Selma and Toinette. They'll sew for you, and here's Ariadne who'll be your model." Gail acknowledged the introductions, though she felt a little tremor as she met the rather disdainful glance of the dark-eyed Ariadne. For a moment she wished that Clytie had been assigned to her. Then, quickly, she tried to banish the thought that the dark-eyed girl might be difficult to work with perhaps a troublemaker. Yet as she walked toward Madame's room to await her or- l ders, she confessed to herself that, as a rule, her first impressions were correct. - ' 'Madame's just telephoned that she won't be here for an hour, so she wants you to work up some ideas for youthful summer frocks. I'll show you the designer's room." Rising from her desk, Miss Carolie led Gail along a dim passage to a room in the rear. It was an extension to the old brownstone house which was Madame's salon, and the long studio windows at the north made the room quite light There was a large work table in the center and at one side Gall, saw Selma and Toinette busily at work, the former runing an electric sewing machine, and Toinette, the finisher, working on a filmy organdie frock Nearer the door was a handsome Italian with a .beautifully curled mustache, pressing a fine white woolen coat. "You'll find paints and paper here," Miss Carolie pointed to a small chest of drawers.

Perhaps no early residents did more to give Albany a start, from which it has grown into a place of do not know of a descendant of one of them here now. A daughter of Dr. Alexander became a 'physician, doing well, elsewhere, it was reported. J. B. Comley was the leading joker and wag of the town, with no limit. The Babers located in Junction City, and we think began as such in 1865. Just where the first council was held we have been unable to learn. As the mem the size that offers most in friend Laying out $20 a month for each bers probably received no recom liness and good will, far more than larger cities. We do hot know who gave most of the names to the streets of the city; but we are sure of one of them, Broadalbin. was some of the family are there now person, we would be spending $100,000,000 a month, or $1,200,-000,000 a year, on relief. Docs any pense at first, there must have been considerable , irregularity. Later the mayor and councilmen received $1.00 a meeting, which Down in the northeast corner of became Mrs. Jacobs. Her husband continues to be a successful business man, maker of high grade shirts. They have two fine sons. One of the councilmen in 1872 was Samuel E. Young, father of Percy Young. He served one year, which was all he wanted. In fact we believe he never filled another public office of any kind. No one was ever able to induce him to change his mind. He always attended strictly and well to his own affairs without any hazardous side issues that have often been disastrous to the hopes of ambitious people. For many years Mr. Young was undoubtedly the leading citizen of Albany. Few men leave a stronger impression upon a community. Another man who didn't want public office was Abe Kackleman, and he was councilman the same year, and only then. Mr. Hackle-man stood high in the estimation of his fellow citizens. Besides his extensive holdings here, he owned considerable property in eastern Oregon, real and personal. The Hackleman farm over there is now in the hands of Frank Hackleman. J. F. Backensto was active in city ' affairs, hence had to be in the council, undoubtedly a good one. His grandson Will Merrill is also a councilman interested in the good of the city. He resides in the Merrill home in the old Backensto block. ' Allen Parker was a city father in 1875. Mr. Parker not long afterwards moved with his family to Lincoln county, at that time the west end of Benton county, where he was prominent in politics for many years. There were numerous families of Parkers here, good people, and we have always been somewhat confused about them, E. A., Moses,' Aleen and others. In 1876. Dr. Geo. W. Gray was one of the six members, a successful dentist. He was the first dentist in Albany to work on the nerves of this son of a dentist, also brother. Dr. Gray was always a busy man, besides his profession, owning and running a farm out near Oakville, which continues in the family, said to be a good one. One year was all the Dr. cared for, we are sure, and his name did not appear again, so far as we know in any office. Another good citizen was in the council in 1877, Conrad Myer, in business at the present site of the Venetian Theater, until the construction of the Globe Theater. It was his property until circumstances required him to part with it. Albahy has had no more upright, clean citizens than Mr. Mver, universally respected. Mrs. Myer and three sons continue to do their part in a modest way, Mrs. Myer and two of the sons, residing here, and Conrad Jr., who has been in the railroad and insurance businesses, in Portland. Another busy man consented to be a councilman for awhile and served one year in 1878. N. H. Allen. Mr. Allen was practically father of the light and water system of the city, in a definite form, and was a live, active man for many years until his passing. One descendant, -Mrs. Will Burkhaxt , is here now, doing her best along the way. Mr. and Mrs. Burkhart have a fine home just east of town on the highway, Salemward. C. H. Stewart mentioned numerously, always active in Albany's progress along all deserving lines, was in the same council with Mr. Allen, and again about 25 years later. In the same council was William H. Rumbaugh, father of Harold Rumbaugh, now a leading Benton county farmer .and orchardist. He had the distinction of being Albany's only broom manufacturer, doing a good business for several years. He resided at Lyon and Seventh streets, and we remember making our first hew year's call there. He certainly had three fine daughters. One became Mrs. Fields, a wife of a prominent railroad man, and the other was an employee of the Southern Pacific for a long time. Another is Mrs. Frank Holman. A likely and likeable young man came over here from Scio not long before 1879. Dave Mason, and they made him councilman for a year. It was the next year that Dave met his Waterloo, at the hands of Nate Baum for county clerk, and never again did Dave accept any public office. Nevertheless he became the most prominent individual here in Masonry, perhaps in the state. In our initial Albany year the members of the council were L. Martin. W. B. Scott, L. C. Rice. James Dannals, H. Saltmarsh and J. Gradwohl. Of these there is only one with immediate descendants here, those of James Dannals, narrated before. A son of Mr. Salt-marsh, Roy. is a leading citizen of Crescent City. Calif., just below the Oregon line, on the coast. John Hoffman, who died in this city only a few years ago, filled the job in 1882. This was evidently a stepping stone, for the next year, 1883. he was fire chief. That year a state tournament was held here. We have a picture of chief Hoffman, trumpet in hand, fireman's helmet atop, leading affairs in the midst of a very crowded street. Judge Stewart and Frank Wood were there somewhere. Mr. Hoffman was also chief of police later. Arch Monteith. already mentioned, a young man with a black moustache, was also in the picture, but as a dignified alderman. In 1885 Chas. Q. Rideout. quite a young man, was on the job. Not long afterwards he went with Best Harvester Co. to California, where he has since made his home, one time postmaster of San Leandro. Of the Rideout family. Miss Lilly is the only one in Albany now. But there are other relatives, among our prominent residents. We have thus covered twenty years, juggling with names of old friends, whom we are pleased to the city cemetery, now known as Riverside, is a tombstone marked mortal in his senses suppose that for Broadalbin, N. Y., near Albany was not enlarged until the admin in that state, a former home of MARKHAM. We understand S. S. we could raise any such sum by istration of Mayor P. A. Young. American economic system is not the substitution of another system, but the harmonization of that already In existence. In an 'address before the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce last night Mr. Sloan reiterated In effect the philosophy that both he and Henry Ford have . expressed before, and on that, if all industrialists; from the largest to the smallest, would adopt would prevent much of the unpleasantness that has arisen in connection with the pression. Mr. Sloan points out that It is the function of an economic system to produce for consumption the things-that the people want and to provide them with the means of securing the products of industry. He believes that progress toward increasing both demand and supply has been and can be best" served by a competitive system, A glance at comparisons between results of competitive and non-competitive systems that have been and are now being tried substantiates his claim. Nevertheless Mr. Sloan admits the present system can be improved, not so much by reformation or complete change, but by rearrangement and co-ordination, and by emphasis on certain proven principles. The General Motors corporation president summarized his views as follows: s ' Firlt. I urge continuing, more aggressively if possible, to move for g constant lowering of costs and prices. I am sure that an intelligent industry will not defeat that objective by reducing the real Wages of the worker, but will reach it by continually Improving its producing technique. It should not hesitate to employ more and more mechanization. Although that policy will be attacked by those who believe that the machine creates unemployment, every fact indicates that, in the final analysis, it means more not less because of the stimulation that comes from the Increased ability to consume through broadening the market and bringing goods and services Within the reach of a greater number. Second It should accept competition as the best instrumentality for regulating Industry's intricate relationships. While industry might well adopt reasonable standards of conduct, such as fair trade practices, minimum wage and the like, it must be definitely recognized that when such policies tend to become monopolistic in character or when they tend to limit uneconomically the competitive urge, and let us admit frankly this is too apt to be their real objective, then we pass from competition, and regulation by government bureaucracy becomes inevitable, ' , the Monteiths. which we under Markham was a member of the public contribution in the com family.

We are writing this now on property directory in 1878.

He is on our streets daily, in excellent preservation for a man of eighty. A prominent councilman In 1879 was Ans Marshall, grandfather' of Dr. Marshall Woodworth. a leading physician, and Mrs. Bert Stevens, who continue to make Albany their home. Mr. Marshall was in the livery business, well established. The burning of his barn and stables was one of the worst for several years, as it included a purchased from Mr. Gradwohl. In connection with this is a striking incident. Mr. Gradwohl built the one story brick, now occupied bv the chamber of commerce and the then was John Cleaver, whom we never saw. and know little about. Likewise, Mr. Schlossel, the treas Schoel jewelry store, leaving six feet on the eat end of the lot for a sidewalk. Then, when we made the aforesaid buy, he asked us to so? She rose from the table but as she neared the door she came face to face with a girl whose vivid green eyes and dusky hair immediately set her apart from all the others. She gave Gail no friendly good-morning, but a cool stare which undoubtedly she would have resented from a less intriguing character. "Wonder who Natalie's gunning for this morning?" sniggered a rather petitte blond to the girl beside her who carelessly shrugged her shoulders as the green-eyed girl passefi. But had Gail not been in such a hurry to leave she might have heard the blond girl exclaim, as her eyes still followed Natalie, "She's looking us over again to see if there's any newcomer worth getting acquainted with." Her companion answered, rather bitterly, "We're all ' workers here. She hasn't much chance of getting into society through anyone she might meet in this place." . Gail sniffed the air as she stepped into the street. Although there was no fragrance of flowers around he, and she missed the sweetness of growing things; it felt fresh. Perhaps the rain in the night had washed away some of the grime of the city. She walked quickly, amazed to see so many people on the streets so early in the day. Then, catching sight of a mail box, she crossed the street and dropped a letter into it. She noted the time of collection before she hurried on. her lips parted in a smile. Had Derek the practical side of designing, haven't you?" "Oh, yet," answered Gail bravely, though she stifled a sight as she thought how different her surroundings were now. "All right," Miis Carolie exclaimed, leaving the room. For a moment Gail felt a desperate desire to follow her. Then, turning to the chest in front of her. she found the paper, paint and .brushes she needed. Soon she was absorbed in her work. y A buzzer sounded, and Ariadne, who had been in the showroom most of the morning, sauntered over to Gail. "It's 12 o'clock. Time to go to lunch." "My, but the morning's gone fast," cried Gail, sitting up and looking about her. "I guess I'd better finish this before I go out. Madame may wish .to see it." Once more she turned to her work. "Better go when the going's good." advised Ariadne, and she slouched from the room. A moment later the door opened, and Clyties called, "Did-you hear the buzzer, Miss Ever-ette? It's time to go to lunch. I don't go till one, for someone has to be in the showroom, but our designer always goes at this time." . 'Then I guess I'll go," said Gail, rising and cleaning her brush while she studied her painting through half-shut eyes. "Say, that's gorgeous! I bet Madame will like that. Oh, well, if she doesn"t and when she's wor- urer. Those having the distinction also leave a space, this on the west end of our lot.

Whether the law is going to mean anything depends on how it's administered.
