Republican State Judicial Convention of !
Missouri will meet here this afternoon for
the purpose of nominating a candidate
for the short term on the Supreme bench
and for the transaction if any othfr bus
iness which may came up for consideration
The attendance at the convention will
probably be lighter that at the stale conven
on in May when only 65 of the 1.076
delegates were present. It is understood
that there are seven candidates for the
judicial nomination in tha fwld but it
is asserted by well formed delegates that
the nomination will probably be offered
to Assistant Aitoiney General John
Kennish of Holt county. The Democrats
have nominated for that position JuJge

The Mormons of South Baker and their
friends last evening celebrated the fifty
ninth anniversary of the coming of the
pioneers, under the leadership of Bring
ham Young into the Salt . ake valley.
The celebration was held in the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, There was a
commemorative service of music and rec
itation. Three honored quests were three
of those same pioneers who almost sixty
years before had dared the awful trip
across the plains, that lead to the founding
of the rich empire of Utah in the fertile
valley of Salt Lake.
The three pioneers were John D. Sta k,
of tha Oregon Lumber company's store;
Mrs. Sarah Eccles, grandmother of John
H. Eccles, and Mrs. Heggie, whose son is
employed by the Oregon Lumber company,
and who has just rec-.ntly arrived in Bak
er from Salt Lake. '
The program was made up of singing
by the choir of the church, under the
direction of Prof. Edwards; graphophone
music and a talk by James W. Eardley
upon the "Pioneers and their Wonderful
Trip Across the Plains."
In the afternoon there was dancing for
the children, and in the evening a dance in
which the other folksjoined. Because of
the work of the men the celebration was
necessarily held in the evening and the
games and sports with which its celebra
tion is marked in Uuh were of course
Pioneer Day to the Mormons is another
Fourth of July. It is celebrated in Utah
and in points in Oregon. Idaho and Wash
ington, as well as in many of the Europe
an countries where there are coionies of
the Saints, .t is tne great anniversary
of the church. Baker City Herald.

the house, a distance of 60 fe-.t. The
baby did not receive a sca'.ch, and will
Mrs. English was standing at the front
gate ol her home, looking at a 2-year-old
he:fer, when the animal oecame enraged
at her, gave her horns a qu ck and power
ful toss. Mrs. English was hit in the
lower abdomen and was entiiely disem
boweled. Tne woino was ruptured, anti
she fell to the ground. Tne husband was
near by and at once drove the animal
away, and assist d his wife to her feet.
She walked into the nouse unassisted,
and Mr. English picked the baby up and
carried it into tne house.
It is theJvpi.-Jo.i of tlie physician that
