Ball Season is Oyer
SI. HELENS TEAM WINS 13 AND
LOSES 4 DURING SEASON
The base ball season for St.
Helens is over for the year. The
season has been a successful one
from the standpoint of winning
games and giving the people
good entertainment, but from a
financial standpoint it was not so
much of a success as should have
been. During the season the St.
Helens team played 17 games,
winning 13 of them. The players
were nearly all local boys and
Manager I. F, Ballagh is to be
congratulated for handling the
ball team in the satisfactory
manner in which he did. The
last game of the season was with
Woodland last Saturday, which
resulted in a victory for St. Hel
ens by a score of 8 to 5. Posters
were out announcing three games
between St. Helens and Rainier
during the three days of the fair
last week, but for some unknown
cause the Kainier team failed to
keep its date. This failure on the
part of the boys from down the
river caused quite a little dis
appointment to the locals as w ell
as to the fans who were expect
ing a royal good time and some
real base ball games.
Ralph 0. Hazen
Mr. Ralph 0. tlazen, a respected
reai'lont of Warren, in this county,
passed away at hil home last Tuesday
evening after an illness lasting sev
eral wecki, caused from asthma and
Mr. Ilazfln was bora in Pennsyl
vania in April, 16,ri0, and waa 63 years
old at the time of hil death. He came
to Columbia county in 1879, and settled
on a farm near Warren and hat made
his home there ever since. He leavas
a widow, two sons and two daughters,
sll living at Warren, besides several
brothers in different parti of Oregon.
The children left by him are Mrs.
W. C. Cooper, Mrs. Edith Bacon,
George Hazen, and Arthur Hazen.
Funeral services were held at the
family home in Warren yesterday af
ternoon, and more than two hundred
friends and relatives attended to show
the high esteem In which the deceased
Rev. F. J. Meyera, of the Congrega
tional Church of St. Helena, preached
the funeral sermon, and interment was
had In the I. O. O. F. cemetery at
The dance given by the St. Hel
ens Firemen last Saturday waa the
most successful dance ever given
bv the boys. From a financial
standpoint it was probably the most
successful dance ever given in St.
Helens. Considerably more than
$100 was taken in by the boys,
which shows that the people appre
ciate the efforts of maintaining an
efficient fire fightng company. The
St. Johns Fire Co., headed by their
chief, visited the St. Helens boys,
coming down in a launch, and they
were well pleased with the recep
tion given them.

The Pender Trial i
FAMOUS MURDER CASE 10 BE
TRIED OCTOBER UTH
Circuit Court will convene in
St. Helens in regular session on
Tuesday. Oct. Nth. The first case
to be tried will be the State vs.
John Pender, charged with mur
dering Daisy Wehrman near
Scappoo8e on Septenber4th, 1911.
In June 1912 Pender was tried
before a jury in St. Helens, and
after deliberating for about 40
hours the jury failed to agree.
Since then the trial has been de
layed from time to time for vari
ous reasons until now. It is
probable that the trial of the
case will take two weeks, as
there are a large number of wit
nesses on both sides to be ex
amined in addition to the task of
selecting a jury which will be
satisfactory to both sides. E. B.
Tongue, District Attorney, will
handle the case for the state and
John F. Logan and John Steven
son will handle the defense.
Following is the jury list for the
October term of the Circuit Court:
Arthur H. George, St. Helens;

A Bad Fire
Last Friday night the barn owned
by S. Rock near Yankton was en
tirely destroyed by fire, and the
contents, belonging toN. E. Walker,
consisting of three horses, two
cows, buggy, harness and about 20
tons of hay were also destroyed.
The origin of the fire is unknown
and there eeems to be no way of as
certaining the cause. About 12
o'clock at night the Walker family
were awakened by the cracking of
the flames and every effort was
made to save the property .especially
the horses and cattle, but as the
firee had such a start it was im
possible to do anything.
