AUTHOR'S REMINISCENCES

Looking back over my past, one of the things that strikes me most forcibly is the wonderful changes that have, during my life time, taken place in the country and people. The changes pertain to our manner of living, and of doing almost everything done, the lighting, heating of our homes, the improvement in all domestic operations, the amazing profusion of books, papers and magazines and the wonderful improvement in their printing and illustrations, the modern speed of travel, transportation and transmission of news. The oceans and seas that once seemed to spread out infinite distances have shrunken to mere ponds, and the continents that once extend out beyond our confused comprehension, have shrunken to mere neighborhoods, within as easy communication and reach as our next door neighbor. The telegraph keys are touched and in a few minutes our thoughts are being talked in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Islands of the sea.

If old people who were living in my boyhood days could have been suddenly placed amid surroundings like those of today, they would have felt as if they had been ushered into a new and strange world. During the span of my life there have come the larger part of all the inventions and discoveries that have revolutionized the manner of living of civilized mankind.

My education was mostly received in the west. Following the acquisition of the common branches there came the study of the higher mathematics and the branches that go to make up the higher academic curriculum. Connected with these days there are a thousand delightful associations, memories of faces fair and young and forms manly, with pleasing personalities. There was the academy school life, the debating society, stirring debates, papers, readings, impersonations, songs and music. How charming the memory of them still! Then the pictures of our home life in beautiful southern Oregon, with its bright skies and balmy atmosphere, how memory sweeps back over the vista of years and brings fresh again the perfume of honeysuckle, eglantine and roses of May and June, as it stole in under the raised sash of my east bedroom window, while the morning breeze fanned the fluttering curtains. I seem to hear, even yet, the drowsy droning of the bees against the window panes, or among the climbing vines outside. Like a soothing lullaby there floated in the song of the robin, linnet, catbird and the cooing of the doves and noise of domestic fowls.

How indescribably sleepy I was on those lazy, balmy mornings! With youth and health, free from care, I seemed to be reposing upon a bed of down or floating dreamily away on cottony clouds, in the ethereal blue. I delved into my books, studied hard and had plenty of physical exercise about home. The months and years sped by. I read much in other books than those in the regular school curriculum, and these opened up to me a new world. I was filled with the aspirations and ambitions of youth.

In 1861 there came the discovery of gold in eastern Oregon. With my father and two uncles, I went to the mines in the spring. That trip was full of thrilling adventures. Arriving at the mines, I was thrown into environments only to be found in a new mining camp. The mines, mining operations, mining towns of mushroom growth, the drinking, gambling, carousing, shooting, fighting and stabbing affrays, with the doings of frontier desperadoes, from all quarters of the world, brought humanity before me in an aspect entirely different from anything I had ever seen. I found profitable employment of a mechanical sort, and I had neither time nor inclination to become entangled with wild performances around me.

Well along toward winter we left the mines and returned to our homes to spend the winter. The next spring we went to the Idaho mines, in the "Boise Basin," where Idaho City was built. This was one of the wildest mining camps of the Pacific Northwest. Here were events that occurred with the most spectacular settings imaginable. From a little camp of a few rude rough log cabins, there grew up in a few weeks, a town of three or four thousand people, a town consisting mostly of stores and business houses of all the kinds found in civilized communities.

Late in the summer of 1864, tiring of mining camps and life among miners, I returned to civilization and home, and taught school and worked at the trade my father had taught me. Teaching did not seem to agree with my health, the constant exercise of my voice in oral work affected my throat and I went to California, spending the winter of 1866-1867 there, returning the following spring. After my return, my father had a very severe and dangerous illness, so that the physicians in attendance despaired of his recovery and said they could do no more, and gave up the case. Under these desperate circumstances I told the home folks I would never consent to abandon effort, and that we must exert ourselves and do all we could for he might possibly recover yet. They all seconded my efforts, following my lead and directions.

I had been for some time studying materia medica, and treatment of disease during my spare time, because I liked the study, but not with any serious thought of becoming a physician. The knowledge acquired certainly now came into good use. For eight days I scarcely ate or slept, but was in constant attendance upon my father. At the end of that time, almost utterly exhausted, I went up to my room for a little sleep and rest. About midnight, the neighbor who had been left in charge, came up to my room and said, "Your father is better and wants to see you." I was soon at his side, and found him better, but completely prostrated, so much so that he was powerless to speak above a whisper, and could not lift his hands from his bed. He gradually, but surely recovered, and lived thirty years of useful life. When the physicians who had been in attendance met me, they generously complimented and congratulated me, and said, "Young man, it is plain what should be your business in life. You ought to fit yourself for the practice of medicine; that is your calling."

Later I married Miss Eliza J. Butler, who had been a pupil of mine in school.

We acquired a comfortable home and were getting along happily. But I had a constant feeling that I was not filling my place in the world. Then came the decision to complete my studies, graduate and enter the profession. By this time we had two little children. Nevertheless, I determined to go through. Our home was sold and turned into cash to pay my college expenses. How I digged and delved! After all these years, I think with admiration of the splendid courage and loyalty of my young wife, in giving up our home and standing by me through those anxious times of toil and study.

It was my good fortune to graduate at the head of my class, but I came through "worn to a frazzle." A malarial attack, a few days before final examination, almost finished me for the time. My funds were exhausted and I was left a thousand dollars in debt. Shortly afterwards I had an offer of a government position as physician at Fort Simcoe, Yakima Indian Agency, Washington. In my run down physical condition, and with my depleted finances the offer was accepted. I had to go out of my own state and leave my debts unpaid, but determined to go to my principal creditor and tell him what I wanted to do.

When I had stated my proposition to him, he said, "I know you and know all your people. I am not afraid of you. Go wherever you want to go, and when you can spare the money, send it to me. If you would like to go into business here, I will put up a drug store and stock it, and you can run it and practice medicine right here. If you want to go elsewhere, all right." He was "white" and fair with me, all through, and (though he has been dead a good many years, I think of Hyman Abraham, as a friend. If some of his children should see this, they will be pleased to know that I remember and appreciate the generous act of their father.

I arrived with my family at Fort Simcoe, in July, 1872, and entered upon one of the most interesting periods of my life, a period marked by experiences not common to the average medical man. Some of these experiences were thrilling--all were interesting. Here at the Fort I had the medical oversight of a large corps of government employes and instructors, pupils of the Indian schools, and about sixteen hundred Indians. Besides, there was an extensive range of practice among the outside settlements. The white people at the Fort had a two-fold mission; first, as government employes, secondly, as missionaries, whose object was to instruct the Indians in the white man's ways and civilization. A complete history of events and our experiences while there would make an interesting volume.

Soon after arriving at Fort Simcoe, Major Powell, of the Department of Ethnology in the Smithsonian Institution, at Washington, D. C., wrote me asking me to take up in behalf of the government, the study of Indian ethnology, language, folk lore; their myths, traditions and beliefs and their ancient customs and usages. This, being undertaken, made a sort of diversion from the regular routine of my medical duties. A large amount of data was accumulated, and later part of it was printed and published, and has since gone into and become a part of the History of the state of Washington.

While at the Fort, much time was devoted to microscopical work and study, in the diagnosis of disease, and considerable attention was given to practical micro-photography. A large number of mounted microscopic specimen were prepared, many of which are good yet, after more than forty years. The people about the Fort in the government employ were of a high average intelligence, culture and morality, having been selected with special reference to their fitness in the qualities that would make them efficient as teachers and examples to the Indians. We had frequent visits from Washington City, from Indian Inspectors, and military men of the highest character, among whom were Gen. O. O. Howard, and numerous others. Under these circumstances it could hardly be said we were entirely isolated from intellectual and social environments.

Some of the great Indian councils and meetings while we were there were held amid the most dramatic and thrilling settings. Whatever we may have thought of Indians or Indian character, we discovered that there is much that is good in them, that only needs to be drawn out and cultivated to make them men and citizens.

During the Nez Perce Indian war of 1877, there was much excitement at times among the Indians on the reservation, lest the Snake Indians and tribes at war with the whites, should attack the reservation Indians and the whites about the agency. We had convincing proofs that the Indians around us were the friends of the whites. We learned afterwards that during the period of greatest fear and excitement, the leaders among the Indians came in the night and stood guard over the white people there, lest the hostiles should make a rush upon the place and murder us all. We did not know of this while it was being done; it was only after the trouble was all past that we heard of it.

I distinctly remember on one occasion when General O. O. Howard was at the fort with several of his staff, just before the Nez Perce Chief Joseph's Indians began hostilities. He came to sound the Indians there, and to discover what was their feeling, and if possible, learn what they knew of the disposition of the Indians on the upper Columbia. His stay continued over Sunday, and there was a large gathering of Indians, to see and hear the "big white chief." On Sunday there was a religious service, which the General and his staff attended. The assembly was large and the interest profound. The Indians sang various hymns and songs, some of them in their own language. Various persons spoke, and among others General Howard and some of his company. The chief of the Yakimas, Joe Stwire, arose and told his experience while on a mission among the Warm Spring Indians. As he proceeded he became more enthused, and his eloquence rose to a high strain.

The large audience all around was deeply moved, both whites and Indians. I saw the tears flowing down the face of General Howard and the members of his staff, as well as of numerous others. The effect was profound and electrifying. I thought at the time, "What a power as a speaker this man might have been, if he had been educated and cultured."

Our stay at the agency embraced all that thrilling period before and during the "Chief Joseph War," and those exciting times of alarms and uprisings of the Indians up the Columbia river, above Priest Rapids, while the old renegade chief, prophet, and dreamer, Smohalla, was stirring up sedition among the "wild" restless ones of those tribes. At that time there were but few settlers in the Yakima valley, and all the upper Columbia river country. The distances between stock ranches and pioneer homes were long, and all the frontier was constantly exposed to Indian outbreaks.

We had been at Fort Simcoe almost exactly ten years, when I resigned my position to get out where there would be better advantages for school and society.

I wish that there could have been more space for a narration of our experiences among the Indians and pioneer people of the Yakima country; there were so many things that would have been intensely interesting. We had an adventurous trip from Fort Simcoe to Pomeroy, thirty-seven years ago. Looking back, after all these years, the sage, sand and dust, the terrific thunder storm we had, having been driven from our camps several times by rising water, and being compelled to go back to the hills among rocks, thorny cactus and rattlesnakes to make new camps, being tormented by mosquitoes and heat, and getting stuck in the sand, the turning bottom side up of my hack, emptying everything out into the water--all this can be looked at with complacency now, but at the time there was in it an element not calculated to contribute to comfort or pleasure. Arriving in Pomeroy, it was found that there seemed to be a demand for my services as physician, and soon there came to me all the medical practice I could manage. We identified ourselves with the interests of the community, whether material, educational or moral, though in those pioneer days, it was not always the popular thing to do. I have formed the acquaintance of many great-hearted, noble people, whose confidence and friendship has been valued more than could be measured in dollars and cents.

In the early days of my practice I often went on horseback, later in a buggy, but we knew nothing about automobiles, telephones or electric lights then. I remember well, on many a cold ride or drive, how anxiously I peered out into the darkness and storm, longing to see some signs of life, and wondered how far I should have to travel to reach warmth, rest and shelter, then how the gleam of a lamp in the window of the house to which I was going brought a thrill of joy and cheer. As I write, I remember how, when I was called at midnight to start out on a cold dreary drive, Mrs. Kuykendall was always up and had a cup of hot coffee ready, and something warm for me to eat before going. In those days the livery stable or my own hired man had to be called to bring a team for me. In later years I could be on my way with my automobile ten or twelve miles or to the place where I was going, before in earlier years I could have even started.

My wife was frequently of great aid to me in my professional work, especially in the case of very sick women and children. Her superior qualities as nurse, her skill in devising suitable and dainty foods for patients, and her quick perception of conditions and of changes in conditions caused me to be less worried when I had to be away from a bad case looking after others. While I really appreciated these things at the time, like many others, I failed perhaps, in not expressing it sufficiently. We often expect more of our home people and give them less credit than we do to others.

There has never been any desire on my part for public office or to be prominent in politics, feeling that such things might cause a neglect of my patients. I have never been called lazy or of lacking in energy, and have always felt that it was due my patients to give them the best possible service, and to keep myself abreast of the progress of medicine and surgery.

To do this, a point was always made to visit the eastern medical colleges and hospitals, and take post graduate courses, so as to keep in touch with the leaders in the profession. My time has been so fully occupied with professional business that it was found impossible to give much attention to lodges and fraternal orders, though I was never opposed to them, and really held membership in several, for a number of years. I am now a member of the Holland Society of New York, member of the Oregon Pioneer Society and Oregon Historical Society, a member and secretary of the Garfield County Pioneer Association. For over sixty years I have been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and actively associated with its social and moral endeavors.

It has been an especial pleasure, and a benefit as well, to be associated with the Epworth League and young people societies of my church and the young of other churches, in their moral and intellectual endeavors. It has, perhaps, helped me to remain young in spirit and feeling.

As I now write, I am well along toward my seventy-seventh birth day, and am glad that my interest in the world and world affairs was never greater--it never gave me more pleasure to read, think, study and write--and the advance of the world in progress was never watched with greater interest or more pleasure.

Walla Walla Union Bulletin 1946 December 15 Sunday

Retired Waitsburg Physician Has Long Career in Northwest

That once numerous fraternity of noble men known as country doctors is thinning out, to be sure, but the species is not extinct. A man who practiced medicine 65, 60 or even 50 years ago is not likely to be ministering to the sick and afflicted now. Yet here and there among us, are country doctors who in retirement symbolize a tradition out of the past which only oldsters can appreciate or understand.

Dr R E butler of Waitsburg is a perfect specimen of just that type of a man. The duration of his professional career was not unusually protracted, but he is distinctive among his fraternity because he was 27 years old before he began to study medicine. Nonetheless, he was a full-fledged man of medicine as early as 1887.

Carries Years Well

Last November he was 90 years old, but one would never guess it by talking to and with him, or looking at him. The Roving Reporter spent an eventful hour with the venerable doctor in his apartment in the Mr and Mrs Earl Butler home in Waitsburg.

His hearing is strangely acute, and his only annoyance in a physical sense at this moment is some trouble with his eyes. Elderly folk are presumed to advance a formula by which men and women may attain advanced age with the least inconvenience. Dr. Butler's philosophy of life is predicated on a keen sense of humor, and avoidance of needless worry.

Oregon Country Product

Dr Butler was born in the Oregon country and restricted his professional career to original parts of the Oregon country.

In relation to Waitsburg, Dr. Butler's contacts with it began January 1, 1895. Biographical references to what went before that date will be noted presently. Prior to his Waitsburg practice he was "doctoring" in other Washington and Oregon points. They included Uniontown, Athena and Weston.

As early as 1853 his parents came to the Oregon country from Illinois by Ox team, eventually coming to rest on a donation claim in Oregon's Douglas County.

Log Cabin Home

It was there there Dr. Butler was born on November 3, 1856. His parents lived in a log cabin under such primitive circumstances that a mark on the cabin floor served as a clock. When the sun reached high noon the rays would penetrate though the windows and exactly straddle the mark. There was little need of clocks.

In his youth, hay was cut with a scythe, grain was cradled and threshed with flails or stamped out on a floor by horses. His first schoolroom, at Oakland, Ore., was crude and the desks were handmade.

The family moved to Olympia in 1871, where the man who is now Dr. Butler in due time got a teacher's certificate. He received a total wage one term of $100, which he contends now was all he was worth at the time.

Lived at Fort Simcoe

In 1878 the Butlers moved to Fort Simcoe (near Yakima) where Dr George B Kuykendall was Indian reservation physician. One year later the Kuykendalls and the Butlers moved to Pomeroy and there the ex-reservation physician and the young Butler engaged themselves as druggists. This was in 1882.

The following year was an eventful one for him. By April of 1883, the Gerkings of Gerking flats, near Athena, had moved to the Milton-Freewater area, and there it was Butler married Ida Gerking.

Medical Course Started

In the same year Butler decided he wanted to study medicine, regardless of the fact he was then 27 years old. He took his degree at Rush Medical school in 1887 and set up a practice in Uniontown. After 1- years there he moved to Athena and formed a partnership with the late Dr. S.F. Sharp, which lasted about two years.

For a period of about four years he was located in Weston, and by January 1, 1895, elected to settle down in Waitsburg.

Changes Noted

In the interview Dr. Butler remarked that in his early career around Waitsburg typhoid fever and "summer complaint" occupied much of this time. Until he bought a Ford - the first to be brought to Waitsburg-he rode horseback, in buggy or on Shank's horses to his sick patents. During the influenza epidemic in Athena in 1890, he was called out every night for 60 days.

Home Town Changes

"In a business way, Waitsburg was better in 1895 than it now is, but in other respects there has been great improvement," said Dr. Butler. "We now have a great lot of pavement and sidewalks, contrasted with the mud and dust of earlier days.

"We now have sanitation and pure water, and ever so many comforts wholly undreamed of when I came here."

His years were creeping up on him in the 1920s, and his practice was purposely tapered off. It took him three years to get into full retirement.

His wife died in the early 1920's and since then he has made his home with his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. And Mrs. Earl Butler. His only other offspring is Edgar, a son, living in Seattle.

Golden Rule Stressed

It was to be expected that conversation with a man so mellow, so keen and alert as Dr. Butler would eventually get around to the "state of the world". Said the venerable physician:

"Ethically, the world hasn't changed in 19 centuries. As for the present muddle in international affairs, the whole mess could be cleared up in a matter of hours by rigid application of the Golden Rule."

At various points the doctor stressed his credo in relation to looking for and finding the funny side of people and events. It's a tonic he partakes of in great doses, at the least provocation.

Politically, Dr. Butler has only one adventure to his credit. "I was a member of the legislature one term, and one term was plenty", he declared with a broad and knowing smile.

Notes for CHESTER ERNEST KUYKENDALL:

History of the Kuykendall Family Since Its Settlement in Dutch New York in 1646 Author: George Benson Kuykendall This book contains the genealogy and history of the Kuykendall family of Dutch New York.

Page 72

Chester Ernest (8), son of George B. Kuykendall and Eliza J. Butler Kuykendall, was brought up at the home of his parents, who in the early part of his life resided at Fort Simcoe, Wash. Among his first recollections are the events of life at the Fort, to which place his parents moved in early July, 1872. His father at that time took the position of physician and surgeon for the government at that place. Here in his early childhood and boyhood Chester had many varied and interesting experiences among the Indians, government employees, soldiers and other inhabitants. His first schooling was at the Fort, in a private school, taught in the second story of his father's home. Here, at Fort Simcoe, he went to Sunday school, where were gathered the Indian children, who were pupils of the Government Indian School, as well as the children of the whites who were living at the Fort. Chester Ernest, after going to Pomeroy, Wash., graduated at the Pomeroy High School. When quite young, he entered the drug store of his father, and by reading,

study, and actual experience became a competent druggist. Later he bought the drug store from his father, and has carried on the business since, enlarging and extending the business from year to year.

He married Miss Cora May Crawford, daughter of A. A. Crawford and wife, of Pendleton, Ore Chester has two children:

Lowell (9), born Nov. 5, 1905, in Pomeroy, Wash.

Radford (9), born June 24, 1916, in Pomeroy, Wash.

Chester Kuykendall has been prominent in business and social circles and in church work, and has been intimately associated with the educational interests of the city, as well as with other enterprises for the public welfare. He was one of the school board that planned and managed the erection of the Pomeroy High School building.

He has been for years identified with the M. E. church, is a member of the board of trustees and connected with the Epworth League, and is now Mayor of the City of Pomeroy. (1918.)

Notes for ELGIN VICTOR KUYKENDALL:

Chester Kuykendall has been prominent in business and social circles and in church work, and has been intimately associated with the educational interests of the city, as well as with other enterprises for the public welfare. He was one of the school board that planned and managed the erection of the Pomeroy High School building.

He has been for years identified with the M. E. church, is a member of the board of trustees and connected with the Epworth League, and is now Mayor of the City of Pomeroy. (1918.)

Elgin Victor (8), second son of George B. and E. J. Kuykendall, was born, as seen above, in 1870. He and Chester being of nearly the same age, had about the same environment and experiences in their early childhood and youth, at Fort Simcoe, Wash. They had many romantic experiences not common to the average youth of the country.

Elgin Kuykendall's first schooling was in the same private school where the Kuykendall children and others at the Fort were taught. He was always inclined to read and study. He graduated at the Pomeroy High School and soon began teaching in the county, was later elected Superintendent of Schools and was principal of the High School one or two years. He took up the study of law, pursuing his reading under the direction of Samuel G. Cosgrove, who afterward became Governor of the State of Washington. He was admitted to the bar in 1894, and in 1898 entered into partnership with Judge Mack F. Gose, a relation that existed until the appointment of the senior partner to the Supreme Bench in 1909, Mr. Kuykendall then continued the business. He has served several terms as city and county attorney, and in 1916 was elected State Senator for the Legislature of 1917.

He has been prominent in city affairs, in the church councils and public matters generally, and also among the Knights of Pythias.

He married Miss Marguerite Scully, September 9, 1896. She is the daughter of Matthew Scully and Mary Donnegan Scully, and was born Sept. 9, 1874. They have four children, whose names and dates of birth follow:

Lorraine Matthew (9), born June 9, 1897, at Pomeroy, Wash.

Ruth Lenore (9), was born June 1, 1898, at Pomeroy, Wash.

Berdina (9), was born Jan. 11, 1900, at Pomeroy, Wash.

Kuykendall in Seventh Term

Superior Judge E. V. Kuykendallis now serving his seventh successive four-year term. He was sworn in for the oncoming term at the turn of the current year.

In addition to his duties as superior judge in Garfield, Columbia and Asotin counties he has found time to pursue his nominating hobbies such as landscape painting, writing histories of Asotin and Garfield counties and composing learned articles on the religions and customs of the early Indians.

Knows Indian Lore

His boyhood association with Indians at Fort Simcoe, where his father was stationed as a physician, have given him a background few comtemporary writers on the original American posses. This page has had the privilege of reprinting many of the judge's informative articles.

The East Washintonian in a recent issue summarized many of the highlights in the judge's noteworthy and forthright career. It pointed out that since his appointment to the position of superior judge by Governor Louis F. Hart in 1924 and his subsequent elections to the position in 1928, 1932, 1936, 1944 and 1946, the "judge" as he is familiarily known has endeared himself to most every citizen of his beloved county and home town.

As evidence of his extreme popularity, he has increased his majority at each election, and no one filed against him in 1944 or 1948.

His reputation as an exceptionally brilliant and able jurist has gone beyond the boundary of his district. Throughout the state he is looked upon as one of the most esteemed interpreters of law and justice in his field.

Far more than most men of his period, he has held innumerable offices of public trust, on state, county and city levels.

Still spry and active at the age of 78. Judge Kuykendall arises early and by 10 a.m. is at his office in the courthouse unless he is holding court on that day in Asotin or Dayton. He continues to drive his car in the most extreme bad weather many times making the trips alone.

Judge Kykendall is greatly interestd in early Indian tribes, and has traveled on foot over many of the early trails still visible in the area. He has been secretary and historian for the garfield County Pioneer association for several years.

Born in Oregon.

The following biographical sketch of Judge Kuykendall is taken from "The American Encyclopedia of Biography" published by the American historial Society of New York in 1924. Data for the period following January 1, 1924 was obtained from other sources.

"Elgin Victor Kuykendall, son "Elgin Victor Kuykendall, son of Dr. George Benson and Eliza J Butler Kykendall was born at Oakland, Oregon, October 8, 1870. He attended high school in the public schools at Pomeroy, and in the fall of 18-- taught school at Garfield --- continuing for three terms he was principal of the high school of Pomeroy in the year 189-.

Was Prosecutor and Mayor

He took up again study in the office of S.G. Cosgrove, who was adjudent governor of Washington. In 1894 he surr--------- passed the required examination and was admitted to the bar. He was elected superintendent of schools of Garfield county in the same year, and while directing public educational work of the county, also pursued professional practice.

In 1898 Kuykendall and M.F. Gose formed a partnership in the practice which continued until Gose was appointed to the supreme bench of the state, by Governor S. G. Cosgrove. After practicing alone for a time he formed a partnership with C. A. McCabe, who had studied law in his office; an association which continued until 1919.

In 1900 Kuykendall was elected prosecuting attorney for Garfield county, and the same year was elected mayor of Pomeroy, discharging his municipal and county obligations with conspicuous ability and satisfaction."

He served another term as Garfield county's prosecutor in 1908-10.

State Senator

He was called to legislative responsibilities in 1916 as state senator from the tenth district (Asotin, Columbia and Garfield counties). During the session of 1917, he was a member of the committees on judiciary, game, public lands, and education; in the session of 1919 retaining membership in all these, he became chairman of the committee that prepared the new probate code of the state which simplified and standardized all practices in regard to the settlement of estates, and is responsible in leading degree for the efficient, practical regulations recommended by the committee and made into law by the legislature.

In 1919 he was appointed by Governor Hart as chairman of the public service commission which later became the department of public works (and still later the department of public service), a position which he held for nearly six years. in that position he had charge of the regulation of all public utilities of the state, and for a time including highways.

Most Efficient Department

His department was known as the most efficient in state government, it being stated that it returned greater value to the tax payer for their money than any other department. His department had the public confidence to a remarkable extent, and was administered with the single purpose of the best good of the state at large, irrespective of local factions, influences and prejudices.

Mr. Kuykendall is a past grand chancellor, and supreme representative of the order Knights of Pythias of the state, and a past lieutenant governor of Kiwanis. He is chairman of the board of directors of the Pomeroy Methodist church.

Appointed by Governor

While still at Olympia as director of the department of public service, he was appointed by Governor Louis F. Hart near the close of his administration, in December, 1924 as superior judge for the counties of Asotin, Columbia and Garfield, to fill the vacancy created by the death of Judge Chester F. Miller, who passed away December 1 of that year.

He held that position under such appointment until the election of 1926, when he was elected to fill out the remaining two years of that term.

He was married September 9, 1896 to Marguerite L. Scully of Asotin county. To this union four children were born, Matthew L. now of San Marino, California; Ruth Lenore (Deichert) now of Compton, California; Berdine Claire (Grew) of Spokane; and Jerome K of Olympia. His first wife, Marguerite L. passed away in July, 1943. On December 31, 1945, he married Ethel Waterman Cox, whom he had known for many years.

Judge and Mrs. Kuykendall reside at the family home in Pomeroy at the corner of Arlington and Third Streets.
