No society event which has taken place
in The Dalles for years has created such
an interest and anticipation as the Elks'
party, which occurs at the Vogt tonight,
perhaps due to the fact that everyone
understands just what to expect when
the Elks are at the helm. For several
days they have been busy in arranging
the decorations, which are said to be
very beautiful. Those who have received
invitations may consider themselves
favored, and will no doubt have one of
the most enjoyable times socially they
have yet experienced.
This morning Harry Liebe received a
letter from Rev. W. C. Curtis, whose
home is now at Belden Place, Norwalk,
Conn. Mr. Curtis, although perfectly
contented in his Eastern home, says he
still has a warm spot in his heart for the
Pacific coast and his friends here. He
is, as ever, much absorbed in collecting
Indian curios, and sent to Harry for
some mounted arrow points, which he
wished to exhibit, together with his
Indian curios, at the Women's Club in
Norwalk. He is also anxious to obtain
additions to his already large collections

What' wrong with the married men
in the East? If "Pet" .Strahan were
to be tried in the West the district at
torney would be compelled to ship all
the married men East in order to obtain
an unprejudiced jury. A Pittsburg
paper says: "An ucusual proceeding will
be observed at-the next trial of FayDe

woman. Every one of the jurors will be
a married man at least that is the dis
trict attorney's intention at present.

too much for the last jury who tried her.

disagreed. The district attorney will

stated, that heouce was a lobbyist, "and

It is very apparent that the present
session will not be the means of increas
ing good laws to any great extent. In
fact is has been stated by those who
reallv ought to know, that little more
will be accomplished in that direction.
The sugar beet bounty bill lies buried
in the senate with a hundred bills on top
of it, while several meritorious measures
have suffered the same fate.
Since two appropriation bills are yet
