Condition More Hopeful.
The condition of John R. Murphy
is pronounced more hopeful today
than at any time since the occurrence
of the accident of last Saturday. The
seventh and eighth ribs on the right
side and about four or five Inches
from the spine were fractured and
probably perforated the abdominal
cavity. The right kidney received a
severe injury, the extent of which
cannot be determined in advance of
full developments. The liver also
shows indications of shock. A left
inguinal hernia has developed. In

Jas. B. Welch Is Certain That Pen-
dleton Will Have Some First-Class
Attractions This Season.
James B. Welch will go tonight to
Portland, to take up his permanent
abiding place there.
He will, however, retain the man
agement of the opera house here, and
expects to be able to book better at
tractions for this place on account of
his change of residence giving him
an opportunity to meet personally
the bookers for the combinations.
These gentry very seldom go directly
into the smaller towns, but make their
headquarters in the city and do their
booking by correspondence, and that
method is the one which results so
frequently in the dissatisfaction of the

staff of the Baker theater and upon
its completion will have a position

is quite certain that Pendleton will
have summer vaudeville this summer.
The only element of uncertainty is the
slight doubt as to whether lie will be
able to book a really first-class com
pany for the place, and unless he can
do this he will book none at all. How
ever, he considers the prospects for
getting a realy high-grade company
here as excellent
The season will open on or about
June 15 and continue without inter
mission for a month, with the proba
bilities that there will be a return
engagement in September. At this
time Mr. Welch has hopes of securing
the Weston-Herbert Co., which was
at the opera house a short time ago
and was pronounced by the large au
dience which saw them, the best com
pany that has appeared here in years.
