a number of them did. When the books
were delivered and the cash had to be
dug up, there was a holy, howl, as the

Issue of a work on veterinary surgery,

. notes and engravings, and asked MrP-De
Wright to distribute them among his
friends In Liberal and Mollala, which he
.. at once proceeded to do. Jle found that
the people who had bit at the last book
agent were not only hostile but belliger
ent They could not be made to believe
that the books were a gift from Uncle
Bam, but thought it a trick of some
"pesky" book agent, and about as fast
as Mr. De Wright delivered the books
the good housewife would cart them out
and throw them Into the big road to
moulder and rot , In one instanee a lady
hit Mr. De Wright a crack or two with
a broom and In another chased him out

Vancouver, , Wash., Jan. 2b -Marriage
licenses were 'issued 'yesterday after
noon by the county auditor to Charles
Letcher and Edna, Hamilton, both claim
ing to be from .Portland, Or. V A,
There are a large number of Portland
people who come .to Vancouver .to ; get
marriage licenses, but in this Instance
there'was an. unusual striking contrast
between the bride and .groom and might
rightfully be termed "a study In colors."
The groom s an Ethiopian f the most
pronouiiced type ; The, nationality Of
the ; bride la not known, but- she is hot
an Albino, It is said, however, that she
did not show; the possible trace of. col
ored blood and was -quite fair; to. be
hold .'-ii:;vVrM
The fact Is not denied, that the
Miss Hamilton is a pure white girt. It
is -said as near as .can be learned that
she lives on GUaan street. Portland. The
closest Investigation' here cannot ascer
tain how she beeame so infatuated with
Mr. Letcher as to enter a state of mat
rimony. The affair created quite a sen
ration, and who will perform the cere
monies Is a question at this time.
. "Dickens of a Meeting."
A genuine old-fashioned surprise party
was tendered Rev. R. Teatman and wife
of the Baptist church Jast night by
large number of his congregation , and
specially invited friends. The surprise
was complete in every way. ;
Rev. Yeatman had called a meeting of
the deacons of the church to take plaat
at his residence at 8 o'clock last' night,
but in the meantime was called to the
residence of Mr. Driver for the purpose
of uniting in marriage Charles H. Col
lins and Dorotha T. Bemis, both of Van
couver and vicinity. The members com
posing the . surprise party met at the
residence of W. L. Burt and proceeded
from there in a body to the parsonage.
On the return of Rev. Teatman he was
greeted with many voices wishing him
the best of health and other compli
mentary remarks. . Some little merri
ment was occasioned by the remark Of
Rev, Teatman inquiring On his entering
the room: "Is this the deacons' meet
ing?" It was misunderstood by some
one. who presumed he said, TThls is a
dickens of a meeting." . . ' . ,
Rev, and Mrs. Yeatman were the recip
ients of many beautiful and useful pres
ents, and a merry time ensued., not
withstanding that the deacons' meeting
had to be postponed until some later
date. .. 4 . '

McCutcheon deserted from the service
of the United States at the Presidio,
California, went to Utah, and finally
landed In Portland. While working in
Portland, It is said, he decided to give

Ho was tried by a general courtmar

If successful in their present plea
Armstrong's attorneys will later urge
that the prisoner canhpt be hanged at

Ensmlnger before executions in the state
penitentiary were provided for. It is
expected that the court will decide the
case tonight or tomorrow morning.
"While there's life there's hope," said
a J. Bentley as he walked slowly from
United States District Judge Bellinger's
court yesterday afternoon after his mo.
tlon for a writ of habeas corpus had
Deen denied for the second time, "and
until the trap is sprung that sends
Pleasant Armstrong into the next world

in ins nnai argument Derore Judge
ei linger m Portland yesterdav. Mr.
Bentley said, his voice chokea with emo
tion: "Your honor, this Is a grave cues
tton, and while I know you must view
It purely from a legal standpoint, you
should remember that a man's life is
at stake and that your decision means
mucn to Pleasant Armstring."
But Judge Bellinger refused -to take
any actum.
Mr. Bentley went to Salem this morn
lng for the purpose of once more id-
pealing to the state supreme court for a
stay of execution. If he falls in this
he will turn to Governor Cnamberlaln.
Judge Gilbert -of the United States
district court of appeals is expected in
Portland either this evening or tomor
row ana uenuey may ask him for a
stay of execution. Inasmuch as Judge
Bellinger has refused to act it is said
that Judge Gilbert may refuse to take
cognizance ot the case.
"ir i did not think I were right I
would not put up such a stubborn
fight" said Mr. Bentley. "But I still
hold that the, amendment passed by the
special session of the legislature hold
ing that condemned prisoners, to whom
the death warrant has been issued,
should be executed in county, jails is
ex post facto. The act of the special
legislature is a weak attempt to bol
ster up the law which annulled the old
one which provided for the execution of
criminals at the penitentiary and made
no provision for persons awaiting trial
at that time."
Judge Bellinger holds that the new
law Is not ex post facto in the case
of Armstrong Inasmuch as it does not
make the penalty greater but merely
changes the place of punishment '

The abandonment of Fort Walla Walla
is positively intended. It is said by ths
secretary of war that so soon as Boise
barracks are enlarged to a capacity to
accommodate , regimental headquarters
and f our troops of cavalry this will be
done.
Old Fort Walla Walla was established
in, 1867. - This was Just subsequent to
the , disastrous Indian wars that were
raging through, southern and eastern
Oregon and Idaho. Then the fort was
an absolute necessity, and when built,
many families were taken within Us
confines for protection against the hos
tile Indians. :
General Grant, about the time of the
establishment of the fort, spent two
months there, and It was then said, that
his payof raptaln In the regular army
could not support the cost of living in
the Northwest ' -
After leaving Walla Walla. Grant
came to Portland, en route to Washing
