Astoria Wins Debate at TillamooL
and Victors Return Home Finf
Demonstration on Arrival Tilla
mook Treats Astoria Fine.
The steamer Sue If. Elmore readied
her dock at 8 o'clock last night. Ii
was unnecessary to pass the ncwi
along the street, as a large delegation
of students of our city paraded the
Directs, announcing the fllad news. It
was not the arrivat of the steamer, as
much as it wat her passengers that
was celebrated. The Astoria Debat
ing Team, the victors of the contest at
Tillamook, were the star attraction,
and the delegation that met them at
the dock and escorted them through
the principal streets would have been
greatly augmented had it been known
at what hour they would arrive.
During the day it was learned by
telephone that the vessel had left Til
lamook yesterday morning, and those
most interested looked for further
news of her all afternoon.
At 4 o'clock North Head reported
that the Elmore was not in sight, and
it was concluded that the party would
not arrive last night. There were
those, however, who would not be de
terred in welcoming the victors, and
they remained on the dock in antici
pation. When the steamer arrived
and congratulations were showered
on Astoria's representatives, a pro
cession was formed and through the
principal streets the happy throng pa
raded, shouting the high school yell.
Astoria feels proud of ber represen
tatives, doubly so on account of the
fine team they were pitted against
Tillamook had a great team and it
was known, but, with the enthusiasm
born of loyalty, there were many who
had no misgivings. The result showed
their faith well grounded, and they
were the coolest of the congratulating
party, taking the victory as a matter
The party had a pleasant trip to
Tillamook Bay, only four out of the
five being affected by mal de mer.
When the steamer reached Bay City
at 4 p. m. a private conveyance car
ried the party to Tillamook City,
where they arrived at 4:30. Here they
were met by a committee and es
corted to elegant quarters prepared
for them. Thursday and, Friday was
spent in sightseeing and resting and
on Friday night the battle was on. A
fine programme had been prepared,
which was excellently rendered. After
an overture by the Tillamook Orches
tra, Miss Lillie Anderson rendered a
vocal solo in fine style. This was fol
lowed by a duet by Misses Ida and
Mabel Goyne, who were loudly ap
plauded. The fine music to which the
audience was treated was but an ap
petizer to what was to come, and
placed those in anticipation, in a hu
mor to thoroughly enjoy the debate.
When Supt. A. L. Clark, of Astoria,
took his place as chairman and the
judges were- appointed all was in read
iness for the contest At a few min
utes before 9 o'clock Miss Birdie
Wise appeared and opened the debate
for Astoria. Applause greeted the
young lady on her appearance, and,
warming into her subject, she
launched forth arguments that were
hard to meet.
Mr. Albert Bramwell followed on
the part of Tillamook in a masterful
argument, and he was followed by
Carl Thomas, of Astoria, whose de
livery was excellent and his conclu
sions pointed. John Aschim, of Tilla
mook, was the second speaker, and he
acquitted himself in excellent style.
Miss Jennie Jeffries, who had been
an interested listener to the argu
ments on both sides, next appeared
and, thoroughly confident, expressed
her views in a manner that was
convincing. Robert Stillwell, for Til
lamook, was the last speaker for his
team in the direct debate. At the

conclusion of his splendid and well
prepared effort it remained for the
summary to determine in the judges',
minds who were the victors, so well
were the arguments balanced. ;
When John Aschim had concluded
his final reasoning for Tillamook,
Miss Bertie Wise again appeared to
make the last contention for Astoria.,
At the conclusion of this speaker J
the judges consulted and rendered a,
unanimous opinion that the Astoria'
High School's team had won the vie
tory. The members of the Tillamook j
High School, in a manly fashion, con- j
gratulated their successful opponents.

After the debate Miss Viola Mapes
rendered a fine vocal solo, which was

chestra the audience dispersed in fine
humor. , : e
The congratulations of the van
quished were not all they extended
their guests. A splendid banquet had
been prepared by the Tillamook High
School, to which a jolly party sat
down, and during the jollity the Tilla
mook boys and girls strongly inti
mated that they would come to As
toria for the next debate, and that
when they returned home a few scalps
would be dangling from their belts.
They were informed that they could
have many locks of hair, but the line
was drawn on scalps.
Yesterday the party embarked on
the Sue H. Elmore and arrived as
stated above, happy and flushed with
victory. . - -
Supt A. L.' Clark stated last night
that the Tillamook team were line
speakers, used good arguments and
made a tine appearance, and that it
behooved Astoria to pick out as good
a team as the present one for the next
debate, or conditions might be re
versed. 'One of the happiest of the
party who met the victors was Prot
Garmon of the High School, who
trained the Astoria team and who was
not able to accompany them, owing;
to press of duties.
Every member of the invading par
ty speaks in the highest terms of the
geniality and good feeling prevailing
throughout their visit and the fine
hospitality of which they were the re
cipients, and should Tillamook send
a team to Astoria an effort will be
made to extend the city limits, that
more can be offered them.
Notice is hereby given that the part
nership heretofore existing between
George Jackson and Otis Gray, under
the firm name of Jackson & Gray, by
mutual consent has been this day dis
