"Q. A. M." is the name of a now
dancing club formed hero to give en
tertainments each Saturday evening
at Armory hall. Just what "Q. A. M."

It is the Intention of the club to
give clean dances each Saturday eve
ning, where tho best people of the
town can assemble and enjoy them
selves. Invitations have been print

' REVIEW DREAMING.
.Careful Inquiry Among Gamblers In
This City Falls to Disclose Any c
twlty No Move on Foot to Break
Weak Place In Charter, If Such Ex
ists. In Tuesday's Spokesman-Hovlow ap
peared an article which read In part:
"As a solution of tho gambling
question in Pendleton, an attempt is
being talked or by the gambling ele
ment to break Pendleton's city char
ter. In which some Irregularity has
long been supposed to exist."
After careful search and inquiry
among those who are In touch with
tho gambling element ot Pendleton,
an East Oregonlnn representative has
been unable to find any one who
knows of auy such thought having
been entertained by the gammers.
There is no apparent placo where tho
gamblers could attack tho charter.
Gambling Is forbidden by tho state
statutes and should tho gamblers dis
cover a discrepency in tho charter
which would give them a chance to
break it, there would bo nothing to
gain. Gambling would bo held In
check just tho same by the state law
regardless of whether or not Pendle
ton bad a charter. Mayor Halley is
also district attorney and he would
exercise his rights as such and keep
The Uuview says ltirtlior:
"Tho first probablo move is to make
the offices of city marshal and city
recorder electlvo Instead of appoint
ive. It is considered far easier In
Pendleton to get an open policy mar
shal in than a majority of the .council
and mayor for open gambling. At
present tho marshal and recorder
owe their appointment to the city ex
ecutive, and consequently arc entirely
governed by that body. Tills is a
unique condition existing in few
Western towns. Pendleton's next
election will probably see a hard, oloso
It Is a fact that some are agitating
the electing of the city marshal and
recorder by tho people, but If this was
done nothing would bo gained hero, as
the mayor would have tho same power
then as he now has. If the mar
shal did wink at gambling and over
look it as much as possible, the may
or would have tho reigns in his hands
and could issue orders to keep gambl
ing closed and If the marshal refused
a man could be secured to make the
arrests and the gamblers would bo
fined just the same.
The gambling element had the say
in !io electing of a mayor the first
of last year, and

EUGENE V. DEBS ARRIVES.
Noted Reformer and Lecturer Warmly
Greeted by the Citizens of Pondle
ton. Eugene V. Debs, Who Is to lecture
on ".Modern Problems" nt Frazer's
opera house tonight, arrived on tho
12:30 train today.
Mr. Debs needs no Introduction to
the people of the West.
He was greeted at the train Uy a
partv of friends who escorted him to
Hotel Pendleton, where ho has been
kept busy all afternoon answering
questions and getting acquainted.
The national movements In which
Mr. Debs has taken an nctlve part
have made countless friends for him,
in advance of his coming. His gcninl
personality and wido sympathies, the
peculiar experiences of his career,
endear him to every class of people.
Mr. Debs expresses keen delight nt
the hearty reception accorded him nt
every point he visits. ,
' He loves the West, knows its
bioad. rugged sympathies, and is en
joying his visit hugely.

The young man apparently lost tho
money. He was not drunk and was
paid off today, receiving a check for
?50. He was. on Man street in com
pany with another fellow and thoy
walked Into ono of tho saloons to
take a drink of beer. Ho had had
the money a fow minutes before while
standing on the street and when ho
left tho saloon tho money was gone.
He has no Idea who did It and is at
a loss to know how a man could get
his hand In his pocket and extract ?50
in loose gold without him knowing
it.' The police are working on the
chance of doing the same again. Then
the only relief will be to elect a
mayor who will tolerate an open policy.
