Today haB been an ideauday for a holi
day, a regular summer day, making it
all tne harder to settle domn and imagine
we're hayin' a birthday party. The on
ly way we can tell it isA holiday at all
is because the schools are closed, the
blinds at the bank are down with a little
notice telling us its a "legal holiday"
and a few stores cloed their doors this
afternoon. The ofty seems somewhat
deserted after theexcitement which has
prevailed during the past week

Glen O. Holman, of Pendleton, so
well known all over the state, and who
has been attending the legislature, is in
the city today, on bis return home. He
stopped oyer in the interest ot the
soldier's monument, soon to be erected
in memory of our heroes who died dur
ing the recent war with Spain, and has
spent the day in selling the book "Uncle
Sam's Own Story, Colum and Me,"
Mr. Holman is the writer and pub
lisher, and the price of the book, which
is 25 cents, will go to the monument
fund. He has been very successful in
disposing of a number of books.

About the most important personage
at the D. P. & A. N. Co.'s dock is
Jack," the wharf boat dog, who is the
property of Mr. Eastwood, but who,
with his important air, really wears the
purple, and lords it over bis subjects at
the dock. One might say that be puts
on a great deal of "dog," but one thing
is certain, he has more than horse sense,
and is "Jack" of all trades " when it
CDmes to rendering assistance in land
ing the boats, etc. Indeed, he eeeme to
think a landing could not be made, nor a
boat started, without his presence, and
just as soon as the whistle is heard m
the distance, Jack is prancing back and
forth in his eagerness to do his duty.
The moment the line is thrown he
grasps it in his teeth and jumps around
in the endeavor to wind.it around the
piles, some limes holdirg it till the rope
tightens and takes the bark off of his
mouth. He is always more anxious to
be on hand when the Dalles City arrives,
and has been seen to turn up his nose
when the Flyer comes in sight, knowing
full well there is no "hand out" for him
there. During the tie-up this winter
when he could not reach the wharf boat,
his attics were amusing and he was like
a water-dog out of water, tie is a terror
to'rats, and never gets rattled in his at
tempt to rid the docks of them. He is
the pet of all,, and the doggondest dog
in the bunch. .,
Court Room Packed Jury Returned
Verdict In resa Than ' TV5
When court convened? yesterday after
noon the court house was crowded with
spectators to hear the pleas in the For
rester case. Prosecuting Attorney A. A.
Jayne made the opening address for the
state, and spoke from 2:45 until 4:25.
He was followed by H. S. Wilson', for

5 :55. Court then adjourned until 7 :30
it is estimated that when court con
vened in the evening there were over
five hundred people present. ; Every
seat in the house was taken and the
aisles were filled with men and women
anxious to hear the closing arguments.
The room became so crowded that at
7 :80 an order was issued by the court in
structing the bailiff not to admit anyone
further. . After this order was issued ful
ly two hundred applied for admission,
but were turned away. Pierce Mays
made the final plea for the defense, and
spoke for nearly two honrs when A. S.
Beunett addressed the jury until 11:30,
making the final .plea for the prosecution.
Some very eloquent and forceful
speeches were made, and tne large au
diences was very attentive during the
entire afternoon and evening.
me court men instructed tne jury,
who adjourned to their rooms at 11 :55,
and within fifty-five minutes brought in
a verdict of not guilty. The ballots being
taken, the fleet resulted in a vote .of
nine for acquittal, two for manslaughter
and one for murder in the second degree.
On the second ballot the jury stood
eleven for acquittal and one lor man
slaughter. On taking the third ballot
"all agreed on acquittal
Forrester was brought into court and
when the decision of the jury was an
nonnced to mm, tears came to his eyes
and be seemed overjoyed. He shook
hands with the jury and a number who
were in the court room, and then left
for the hotel to break the news to bis
wife and friends.
