JENNINGS SET AT LIBERTY.
' GRANTS PASS, Or, Sept. 20. Judge
Hanna yesterday afternoon dismissed
Jasper Jennings from custody. Jasper
was convicted of murdering his father
two years ago in a cabin near here.
The trial was long and expensive to the
county. After Jasper's conviction his
sister, Dora, who has since died, was
placed on trial for the same offense, but
was acquitted. The supreme court or
dered a new trial of Jasper on techni
calities, and his dismissal is due to the
fact that many of the witnesses at the
former trial have moved away and the
expense of a new trial would be enor
mous. Judge Hanna's action meets
with public approval.

ture; One of the first things they will
do will be to make the public roads lead
ing to the place much better, says the
Grants Pass Courier.

MIDENCE IS THE
BOOSTING SPIRIT AMONG ASTORIA'S
CITIZENS GROWING DAILY EV
ERY MOVE OF RAILROAD MEN
AND CAPITALISTS IS CLOSELY
There is a prevailing iuipresslou In
Atori& that, something big is going to
happen in the way of. developing the
ity before the end of another year.
Optimism is ths keyuote of a great deal
f talk which 1 iu circulation, ami the
pirit of boosting is taking a strong hold
f many of the citizens.
The continual visits of railroad mag
nates, engineers, surveyors, and inves
tors to this seetlou are being noted with
the keenest interest, and with the ar
rival of every man of prominence in
railroad matters, rumor begin to go the
rounds with remarkable rApidity.
Even the most staid people of the eity
are becoming lnnoculated with enthus
iasm, which has arrived after a oloss
study of the situation from, all sides.
lVssmiuti are few and far between, and
the man who doubts the future great
ness of Astoria in the past few months
does not get much of a hearing from the
majority of the citizens.
The establishment of new institutions
in the city have been very stimulating,
and the fact that thoss prophets of pro
greet, the real estate men, are beginning
to get very active in Astoria, has also
added to the feeling that there will be
big things' going on in the city before
The interest shown in this district by
the Northern Pacitltf oillcials has contri
buted to no small part in the making
of optimists, That a railroad of such
huge interests should select this section
of the west, when it is so actively en
gaged in other parts of the country, as
field for extensive endeavor, is being
noted and salted down by the landed
owners of the city and county.
One of the most stimulating features
of Astoria's grasp for a share of the
general progress throughout the coun
try, is the work of the Chamber of Com
merce; That body has not been blocked
in anything which it has gone after
with spirit, and this has produced a
feeling among its members that there
are great possibilities for it to overcome
in the making of a irreat seaport and
metropolis of this section.
Words of praise for the location of
thecity are heard from every new ar'
rival. In almost every case the new'
comers have added to the general feel
ing that Astoria at last is to come into
her own as the shipping port of the
Northwest coast, and' that nohing can
stop her progress.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON.
EUGENE, Sept. 20. Tin- University
of Oregon opened its doors Tuesday,
September 24th. The first and second
day' registration has shown an increase
of more than 20 per cent over the re
gistration of' the same time last year.
Almost every hk'ti school and academy
in the state Is represented, and a large
number are presenting credentials from
eastern preparatory schools. The year
will mark the highest point in enroll
ment that the University lws yet reach
ed. The very serious question tlint i
presenting itself is how to take care of
all students. The lack of funds has
made it impossible to furnish and heat
all of the rooms in the library build
ing, and for the same reason, the new
girl's dormitory will have to lie idle
for the year. Students, however, are
adjusting themselves readily -to the con
ditions, and the outlook for the year's
work is exceptionally good.
