The work of blow ing up tbe designated houses was gone about carefully to prevent damage to adjoining property.

While it Is entirely in the hands of the board as to whether they wish to act as an arbitrary board, the ac tion not being in accordance with tbe rules of the association which require that charges be made by one school, it is believed that the members of the board will either act themselves or appoint others to act in that capacity. . . Two letters were received by the local school yesterday, one ad dressed to J. C. Nelson, principal, and the other .add reused to tho student council from the Associat ed Student Body of the Eugene j school.

MARTIAL LAY IS SUCCESS Major General Strickland Gives First Formal Inter view to Press moxoiext arrives . NEW YORK. Jan. 20. A mon ument of the famed Carrara mar ble. weighing seven and ont-half tons to perpetuate the memory of Lucretia Mott. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, suffragists, arrives on the steam ship Dante Alighiert from Genoa. The monument is the work of CORK, Jan. 20. In the first formal interview given to the press since he came to Ireland. Maor General Strickland, in com mand of the troops, told the As sociated Press today that martial law was proving a success. He discussed the reprisals and his It-tter to the acting Lord Mayor explaining that I he expected aid from the citizens through a t rel iance committee to supply Infor mation. He did not allude to his repot t on the burning of Cork. Among statements made by the general, was one that women car ried weapons concealed in their skirts to the ambushing forces. He declared he did not expect Immediate results from martial law but even before It was im posed the mnrder gang was find ing it impossible to live at home and had begun to form flying col umns in the MacKoom district and parts of Tiiprrary and Kil kenny. "The first rcKult- of martial law was to make these columns more active." he said. "The defi nite thing we are accomplishing i the breaking of the organlza licn of the republican army. Un til martial law was declared that organization was remarkably ef ficient. It might be taken as too opti mistic to say that the preent orerations of the republican army are its dying kick, but I believe that to be a fact. How long they can keep going i a matter of conjecture. But it is only a ques tion of time. j In reply to a question as to what results had been obtained by the proclamations demanding the surrender of arms, the gen eral admitted ; it probably was true that the number of arms personally surrendered could be counted on the fingers of one hand, bnt added: j "In one way or another arms are coming in. The general spok bitterly of the part he alleced women were taking. "The military are not making war on women or Interfering with them." he said.; "so, the difficul ty of getting tb arms In the pos session of the women may be im agined." , Inscribed 1n commemoration of The Pioneer Fathers and Moth era of Oregon.
