Greengage Dobbins is without doubt
one of the cleverest interpreters of bu
colic comedy that has ever appeared in
the Wet and has already installed
himself permanently in the hearts of
the pstrons of the Star.
Tonight, Barrie's masterpiece, "The

tremendous patronage as this is one of

The Circuit Court was thronged all
day yesterday with friends and others
interested in the outcome of the suit
entitled Mary M. Suprenant versus
Mary W. Twilight, administratrix, and
through the long hour of the day, the
concern of all was unabated.
The matter was submitted to the
jury at 4:30 o'clock in the afternoon,
and that body of citizens was out but
twenty minutes, when they returned
into court and handed up a verdict
awarding to plaintiff the full sura of
$1,540.77. as reasonable compensation
for the services alleged and proven to
have been performed by Mrs. Suprenant
in behalf of decedent Brown.
In the matter of James Zambarlin
versus Frank Mariana, et aL the court
handed down an order over-ruling the
demurrer of defendant heretofore ar
gued; and a further order was made in
that case, granting the defendants, the
Columbia River Packers' Association,
until Wednesday, Sept. 26, in which
to answer. Court then adjourned until

Never before has organized labor oc
eupied so strong a position in the po
litical world. Never before have the
workers framed their demands with so
fair a prospect of having at least some
of them granted. Labor boasts a mem
ber of the cabinet, fifty-two members
of the House of Commons, thirty of
whom are delegates to the labor con
gress at Liverpool. The government of
the day, though one section of the la
bor party regards Liberalism as outside
the pale, are showing themselves in
sympathy with the programme of the
congress. As testimony of labor's grow
ing influence in national legislation, the
Parliamentary committee was able to
report that a trades-dispute bill has
been molded in its committee stage to
meet the desires of the congress; that
funds have been voted to deal with the
problem of the unemployed; that
committee has been named to consider
the eight-hour bill; that the workmen's
compensation bill will shortly be intro
duced in Commons, and that various de
partments of the government have
shown a hearty desire to meet the just
claims, of organized labor. The con
gress may well be in good spirits and
full of hope for the future.
The army has taken up the rough
type of soldier on an extensive scale,
and great things have been expected of
the men' in showy uniforms dark-blue
shirt with chain-mail epaulets, breeches,
leggings, soft-felt hats and brillian yel
low handkerchiefs tied loosely around
the neck. A test of endurance between
two crack commands, however, dispelled
some of the confidence felt in the prow
ess of the "frontiersmen," as they are
called. !'A march from London to
Brighton and return was the task se
lected. They were expected to reach
Brighton early in the evening, but it
was past midnight before the first of
the troops arrived, by which time only
a small remnant of what had been a
large crowd remained to greet them.
The return journey was begun after
a two nouw rest, ana eleven nours
rather slow time for the rough-rider
style of "getting there," as it is done
in America. The distance covered was
fifty-four miles, and the result was
practically a dead heat between the
contestants, one troop of which repre
sented Queensland and the other Can

In a Formal Session The Clatsop
county court met in adourned session
yesterday, Judge Trenchard presiding,
with Commissioner William Larsen In
attendance, Commissioner Matson being
unavoidably absent. Bids were opened
in behalf of the furnishing the county
with township plats for use in the as
sessor's office in the making up of the
realty rolls for assessment; they were
as follows: R C. F. Astbury, $8,500; O.
Wingate, $5,500; F. J. Nelson, of Ore
gon City, $2,050. The bid of the last
named was accepted by the court and
bis bonds in the premise fixed at $!,
000. The court appointed August Juhrs,
supervisor of road district No. 1, and
the clerk was ordered to notify F. O.
Main, former supervisor, to appear in
court and make settlement. He owes
the sum of $89 in this behalf.

RESIGNED HIS PASTORATE.
Then Reverses His Decision Because An
other Preacher Did the Same.
CHICAGO, Sept. 20. The determine
tion of "one south side minister to leave
his pastorate became known yesterday
His reason was the "city problem," the
changing character of neighborhoods
and the invasion of his parish by more
transient ami less church going popu
lation. At the same time another south
side minister who had decided to leave
reversed his decision and elected to
stay because he saw a vast work ahead
in Diirfvlnir the region of which his
church is the center.
The minister who announced his res
ignation is the Rev. Willard Ilrown
Thorp of South Congregational church,
Drexel boulevard and Fortieth street,
He has been a pastor there for seven
years. The preacher who altered his
decision to leave is the Rev. Johnston
Myers of Immanuel Baptist church,
Twenty-third street and Michigan ave

tion of general evangelist by the Bap
