The Newport Commercial Club gave a ball Tuesday night, the .pro ceeds of which will be used to help pay Newport's $300 of the $1000 Lincoln county will expend for ad vertising with the Sunset Magazine Company. The large crowd in at tendance was shown a good time as the management of the dance had promised. Ninty-five tickets were sold. The proceeds amounted to about $135. Toledo was liberally represented at the dance. The launches Traveler and Oregon took crowds and many went down on the train. Rosebrook's orchestra' furnished the music. The Fleet. The battleship fleet passed off Yaquina bay Wednesday morning at 5 o'clock, on its way from San Francisco to Puget Sound. Hund reds of people from the Valley came down over the C. & E. railroad to view them, but as the fleet in pas sing this port was twenty or " thirty miles off shore the only thing visible was the smoke from the ships. This was a great disappointment to the people of Oregon as it was promised that the fleet would come in close at the entrance to this bay and stop, or at least run under slow bell, and give the people an opportunity to see them. The Newport Launched. The new steamltoat Newport was launched from the ways at Yaquina Wednesday evening at 4 o'clock. The new boat will take the place of the T. M.

During the part week Prof. R. P. Goin has been conducting- examin ations of those pupils who are to enter the ninth grade next year. Dave Gay, who formerly resided at Yaquina, has located at Wald port and will engage in the fishing business as soon as the season opens. The Waldport Lumber Company has a crew of men under the direc tion 'of James Kent engaged in building a skid road through the Ruble pasture for the purpose of logging the timber on the Glines tract. J. H. Glines has purchased two lots from the C. J. Smith Realty Company and will erect a suitable building to be used for his crabbing business. The lots are on the water front and very suitable for the purpose. Last week Ora Lyndon completed his launch and for the last few days he has been testing it on the bay. He has found things all satisfactory and will use his launch between his home on Drift Creek and the Wald port market. Waldport citizens turned out en masse this morning for the purpose of getting a view of the battleships. They built a big fire out on the point and shortly after dawn dis covered the fleet moving rapidly northward headed for the Columbia river. Nothing but the smoke was visible above the horizon and it was estimated the Bhips were anywhere from sixteen to forty miles off shore. Elia May Destroyed. Scarth- and Altree's gasoline launch Ella May was completely destroyed by fire last Monday night, while on the ways at Altree's saw mill near Toledo. Workmen were just putting on the finishing touches to improvements and repairs pre paratory to launching her on high tide alxjut midnight, when at ten o'clock an explosion occured and soon the flames, fed by about sixty galons of gasoline, spread over the entire boat, and in less than an hour was burned to the ground. Captain Nost, who was one of the workmen, had just climbed aboard and started down into the cabin when the explosion came. He was seriously burned about the face and hands. Dr. McMurdo, who had arrived, dressed the wounds No "thors were hurt. The Ella May was the largest and finest launch on this Bay. She was built at the Altree Mill and launched last spring. She was of a 15 ton register and could comfort ably carry 100 passengers. Messrs. Scarth and Altree are very heavy loosers by the destruction of this launch. The loss is heavier just now as it is at the Ix'gining of the season's work, when her own ers expected to reap some returns for their investment. The Ella May was to have been launched at midnight Monday night and was chartered to take Toledo people to Newport to witness the passing of the fleet the following day. Immediately after the first explo sion on the boat the workmen at j the sawmill started blowing the fire whistle, then the fire bell soon had j every man in town running to the mill. But they were powerless to act as the reserve tank, containing sixty gallons of gasolene, was yet on the boat and it was feared the ex ploding of this might kill some of them. Toledo feels the loss of this boat as it was the only large boat here, and will now. have to again depend on the numerous jsniall launches for their excursions, towing, etc, on the river. - .

An overwhelming majority of Oregon's voters by registration have formally declared that they believe in the principles' of the Republican Party. Let them now show that they are honest by voting in ac cordance with their declarations. The Oregon election comes liefore the Republican National Conven tion. Let eve'ry Republican voter in the First Congressional District uphold the honor of the Republican Party in Oregon and strengthen the influence of Oregon's delegation in the National Convention by voting for H. M. Cake for United States Senator and W. C. llawlcy for Representative in Congress. If either of these Republican nominees fail of election the primary election system will lie discredited and a re turn of lxiss rule will be invited. The good name of Oregon's voters will be smirched and Oregon's delegation to the National Conven- ' tion will be placed in a humiliating position. For the effect it will have on the November election it is imperative that the Republican nominees in the June election shall be elected by an overwhelming .ma jority. As a believer in the princi pals of the Republican Party it is your duty to be at the polls June 1st, and vote for Cake and Hawley.
