West Side School Entertainment.
A novel and interesting literary and
musical entertainment was given Friday
evening by the pupils of the West Ore
gon City school, under direction of the
principal, Prof. T. J. Gary. The house
was crowded and the performers were
frequently applauded, and the proceeds
netted $21 for the organ fund. It was
the first time that the pupils had ever
appeared on the stage, but they acquitt
ed themselves like veterans. First on
the program was a d rama ,"Our Coun try's
Wealth," presented by Ruth Shipley as
"Godess of Liberty," assisted by Clara
Miller, Ida Jordan, Vnena Farmer and
LillySchniidli representativesof different
sections of the United States. The
great feature of the evening was a drama
representing the early period of the
country's history, which was enlivened
between scenes with lively recitations
and musical numbers. Those participat
ing in the historical drama were Frank
Shipley .David McMillan, Ora McAllister.
Willard Hawley,01arence Miller, Charlie
Smith, Pearl Mosier, Fred Haines, Effie
Kiser. Mabel Haines, Katie Jones, Will
Silver, Lexie Smith, Clyde Smith, Jessie
Humphreys, Mayme Kiser, Lizzie Ship
ley, Anna Batdorf, Maggie Goodfellow,
Clara Miller, Willie Jordan and Howard
Strickler. Among the excellent musical
numbers were violin solos, by Miss Hen
rietta De Bauw, of Oswego; duet, by the
Misses Younger; and a song by the
little girls and boys from Miss Norma
Fox's room. "See'n Things at Night,"
was the tittle of a recitation by Walter
Taylor; "American Flag," by Lilly
Schmidli; "Little Golden Hair," by
Mabel Haines. A very good club swing
ing exercise was given by Clarence
Miller, Will Silver and Lexie, Smith. A
funny farce a reading and pantomime
from Will Carleton's "Three Lovers,"
ended the program, and the actors were
Louis Fallensbee, Bessie Grant, EfBe
Kiser, Henry Cramer, Clark Jones, Bud
Chambers and James Ward. Prof. T.J.
Gary is principal of the West Oregon
City school, and Misses Olive Luelling
and Norma Fox are assistants.

recently returned from the Yukon, where
he located claims, and is now on his
second trip. He took along two horses
to be used in packing supplies. Mr.
Scroggins purchased Jack Stickler's
dog for the consideration of $30. As the
dog works well in harness, he expects to
make good use of him in hauling pro
visions over the icy glaciers. Mr. Fair
clough took along enough provisions to

who was formerly a Canadian police
officer a nd detective. George Reddeway
went to Portland last Sunday with the
intention of taking the Oregon for Alas
ka, but as they refused to sell any more
second-class tickets, he returned liome.
The fact that the steamers have raised
rates, does not in the least deler people
from being anxious to brave the perils
of a trip to the interior of Alaska.
Following Read's Example. A bold
attempt was made to rob the Citizen's
Bank in East Portland Thursday, in
broad daylight. This is the second at
temp that has been made to rob a bank
in this building, About four years ago,
when the Citizen's bank was on the op
posite side of the street, the First
National Bank, done business in the
quarters now occupied by the Citizen's
bank. Itev. J. 0. Read came down frim
Oregon City and at about 12 o'clock
undertook to hold up the clerk, Ed.
Holgate. He entered with a mask on
his face, and (old the cashier he had

New Postmaster. George F. Horton
has been nominated by the president to
be postmaster at Oregon City, in spite
of the letters written by Bain and others.
Nothing, however, can be said against
the other candidates for the place.
They were honorable men and had high
standing in the community. The Ore
goniau thus comments on Mr. Horton's
appointment: "George F. Horton
served two terms as county clerk of
Clackamas county, voluntarily retiring
from the office a year ago last July.
Before his first nomination for county
clerk, in 1892, he took no prominent part
in politics. Two years ago declined the
nomination for representative in the
legislature. He is unequivocally a sound
money republican. It is known that is
nomination was agreed upon by the
Oregon delegation some time ago, but it
is understood the appointment was hung
up by a telegram from J. H. Mitchell,
whose lieutenants in Clackamas county
were much opposed to Mr. Horton.
Before his election to the office of county
clerk, Mr. Horton wasa farmer at Needy.
The Oregon Citv nostoffice

postmaster at salary of $1600 a year,
with allowance for clerk hire, rent and

for the office up to about $2100."
The Poultry Show. As usual, Ore
gon City and Clackamas county carried
away notable honors at the poultry
show, which closed in Portland last Sat
urday, although the exhibit from this
section was limited. William Dixon, of
Ely, was awarded the second prize on a
pen of Plymouth rocks, second tie on
pullet and third tie on cockerel.' He
was also awarded the $25 silver trophy
for the 10 best birds of the American
class. During the show County Clerk
Elmer Dixon sold a pair of leghorns,
'that had drawn prizes at former annual
exhibitions, and one of the conditions of
the sale was that he was to furnish the
score cards with the fowls. The pur
chaser was delighted to find that, after
comparison, that this same pair of birds
scored higher than anything on ex
hibition this year. A number of Eastern
fowls were on exhibition, but they fell
below the standard along side of the
Oregon birds. Clackamas county peo
pie, ion, were prominent in the organi-
oi thu poultry association. In
1SU4 County Clerk Dixon was the first
vicriflUuV't of. the association and
Clivin. K;4i,:r,f Mark's Prairie, was
the fiistirusuier. The growth of the
association lius bi-err remarkable, as there
are no, -over 100 active members, in
Huding prominent citizens of Portlaud,
a; ! oih'T portions of the state.
Tub Pbize FightOpf. All the arrange
merits had been perfected for a prize
fight ala Corbett to take place in the
loft of the livery barn on upper Seventh
street Saturday night. The principals,
seconds, referees and auditors had all
gathered on the ground, with the usual
supply of towels, restoratives, etc., but
Chief of Police Burns appeared on the
scene and read the statutes to the would-
be light weight belligerents. The
heroes of the prize ring were to have
been Harry Mason, of Portlaud, and
George Austend, of this city. During
the day Chief Burns had received a tele
phone message from Portland, inquiring
about Mason. Mason was taken to the
telephone office, where It was ascertained
mat a woman in Portland wanted to
know of his whereabouts, and he was
permitted to depart in peace.

Impersonating a. Toikkigan. Al Hodg
son, in a letter written from Deep Lake,
Alaska, under date of January 9th, to E,
0. Hamilton, tells how they made time
by sliding down the Chilcoot pass.
According to his Btory, all a man needs
to do in Alaska to secure rapid transit
on a down grade, is to transform his
muscular and bony anatomy into a
toboggan. All he has to do is to sit
down, raise his feet in the air, and
scoot. It beats Bliding down the banis
ters or cellar stairway all hollow. Of
course, a good stout pair of pants are a
necessity. Hodgson and party dis
covered this when packing their pro
visions from the Stone House to th
summit. This half -mile stretch is very
steep, and it took an hour to carry their
freight to the summit, but they made
their return trip in four or five minutes.
This party were caught in three blizzards
and at one place they took shelter in a
big tent on the bank of a lake. There
were over 40 men in the tent, and they
paid a dollar each for a plate of beans,
bread and coffee and standing room.
The other members of the Hodgson
party are Frank Yach, F. Wright and
Mr. Iteevas. They loft Oregon City
December 5th, and intended to engage
in boat building at the lakes.
The entertainment given by the Mu
